  1. Albany Devils Thread - 2015-16 Edition

    While I would love to see the AHL team in Trenton, its going to be a tough sell if they insist on naming them the Devils. The Titans seemed to do fine up there and with the Phantoms up in Lehigh Valley now, I think there is a market for minor league hockey in this area, especially at the AHL level. I agree that the new arena in Allentown is awesome

    You see that move all the time in practice but I've never seen someone pull off the absolute roof job on the shot the way Quenneville did, in a game nonetheless. Absolutely amazing. I really hope we have another Henrique with him.
  3. 2016 Draft

    Nice list Common Dreads, my only comment is that I'm under the impression that the Coyotes desperately need to add a defenseman. Then again, they're about to swap out Maloney for a 26 year old moneyballer, so who the hell actually knows. I bring it up because I would love to see a run on defenseman and Nylander start to slide a little.

    Dammit, anyone but them. Honestly would have preferred the Oilers

    Murray didn't have such a good year himself starting with gifting us Palmieri. He made way too many moves last offseason on a team that was already damn close.

    Huge period by the Predators. 2-0 after 1. Gonna be a tough offseason for Boudreau and the Ducks if they don't come back. I know they keep mentioning that the Ducks have blown 3 straight game 7s at home but am I correct that this would be the 4th straight year with a 3-2 series blown lead if they don't come back?

    I'm admittedly just stat watching but really nice to see Severson with 3 assists and a +3 today

    For what it's worth, I've read that the NHL is going to great lengths to make sure that it's not just an arena full of comped tickets from the casinos, only half of which would probably get used. At this point Vegas is a pretty big city and the hockey team will be their first pro sports team, so they may find a nice following of the locals. The city seemed to support UNLV pretty well back in the day. Can't say I've watched their b'ball or football team in years though.

    Yeah, go to the link MadDog provided above. There's a series of videos embedded.

    I've never heard an arena announcer so disgusted. I've been at events where things get out of control and it's usually more of aplead with the crowd to settle down type thingbut nothing like this where the announcer just blatantly calls out the crowd for being a joke.

    I don't think we'll see the highway robbery of the Palmieri trade again this summer but there are a lot of teams that are going to have a major salary crunch so I think Shero will be able to take advantage of one or two teams with cap squeezes.

    They absolutely need to get rid of this offsides review where a guy crosses the line a millimeter early because that's not the reason these goals are being scored. Calling back the Ekblad goal changed the entire game yesterday. Getting theseoffsides calls "right" doesn't really have the same impact as replaying a play at a bag in baseball or something like that.It would be interesting to see how many other slight offsides during the course of a game are missed. I suspect it might be close to 15. On a side note, go Predators. I would love to see them make a run. They kind of remind me of a pour mans version of our 2000 team with the proven defense and a young dynamic offense that no one talks about. That Johansen for Seth Jones was one of the best trades in the NHL in the last several years. Total win-win for both teams.

    It came back on after an hour right as I was demanding a free month of cable, haha. nice win by Predators

    Nothing but a black fvcking screen on NBCSN for the last 20 minutes in the philly area. Had to stream the end of the Blues game and now that the Predators game switchedback away from NHLN, I have to stream that too. Anyone else having problems with NBCSN?

    Ah, that makes sense. I was thinking of when Chicago won the cup the first time and Kane and Toews Stanley Cup performance bonuses bumped to the following year causing the team to have to jettison one or two extra guys beyond what they had already intended to move out. In that case, I'm all for the performance based contract for Elias that you proposed.
