  1. 2016 Draft

    That was worst case.
  2. 2016 Draft

    So how many forwards would have to be taken to make trading down the smart option?
  3. 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs thread

    Good weekend. The 3 teams I hated most in the playoffs got eliminated. Can I ask what did Demers hope to accomplish diving into the goalie's pads almost pushing him and the goalie into the net after almost clearing the puck into his own net?

    Don't help that refs don't call anything unless a leg is hacked off. Though to be fair here how would the ref know he's not lying because he can't get his stick.
  5. Kovalchuk removed from SKA after 1 Playoff Game

    With falling gas prices and the sh!t storm over Russia invading Ukraine and the sanctions that caused its hard not to see the Russian oligarchy not having as much stupid rich money to spend on stupid sh!t like a 10 million dollar hockey player. I mean they're still stupid rich but the mega rich are a paranoid bunch who like to hide money when sh!t goes down and in Russia sh!t is going down. Kovalchuk is an asset and can be turned into a future asset if he's allowed back into the league and under our rights. You can't just throw that away because of the past.

    I didn't say John Moore was a success or failure but he was a move Shero made.

  12. Kovalchuk removed from SKA after 1 Playoff Game

    Well it means a 1.15% chance since its split between two teams.
  13. Kovalchuk removed from SKA after 1 Playoff Game

    In what world would he get that much being a 34 year old with acceptable for a superstar stats in the KHL? He'd get 2-3 for a one year deal unless he can only negotiate with the Devils and 2 or maybe less if he truly wants back into the NHL. If he sucks what did we lose. If he's productive we got a good player for a year and maybe can trade him or use him to try and win in the playoffs. I see little to no downside.

    Devils are not going to be in a cap hell soon where a two year deal for even mid level money will destroy us. If he'd come back for a year or two deal at nothing more then 2 million or so with intensives to bump it up or something like that then its worth the gamble. If oil prices were high and Russia wasn't a world pariah I'd question the owner or Kovalchuk wanting to get out of that contract but from the outside looking in I think its worth the short gamble if it comes to that. We can debate what a reasonable contract but if you say at a vet minimum or a little over he's not worth bringing back in the short term then I think its just emotional.
  15. Kovalchuk removed from SKA after 1 Playoff Game

    The only reason to not want Kovalchuk back on a reasonable deal is emotion. Now he hasn't been breaking KHL scoring records but neither did Jagr during his exile and he became a good NHL player again Jagr was comping off a 71 point in 82 games (25 goals, 46 assists) in the 07-08 NHL season. And I remember WFAN fans complaining about him taking nights off during the regular season that year. Not that they wouldn't have wanted him back but I remember that. 08-09: 55 gp, 25g, 28a for 53 pts 09-10: 51 gp, 22g, 22a for 42 pts 10-11: 49 gp, 19g, 32a for 51 pts His come back season in the NHL 11-12: 73 gp, 19g, 35a, for 54 pts Kovalchuk has 45gp, 16 and 24 for 40. 54 gp, 25 and 30 for 55 and this year in 51 16 and 33 for 49 points.
