  1. Ha Ha. Every time they show Woods picture during a game I'm thinking damn, it's James Franco!
  2. While it may be within the rules to offer incentives for Vegas to pick or not pick certain players the fact is Vegas doesn't have to accept them. Surely they're going to want to be competitive sooner rather than later so they build a fan base and bring in revenue. The owners aren't going to want keep pouring money in for too long I'd imagine.
  3. That's pretty much the same claptrap they come out with after every losing series. Just change the date and save yourself the trouble of reading it next year.
  4. Kreider, for no rational reason, really, really, really annoys me. Was it even worth Nash suiting up? Must've touched the puck about two or three times all game. Another year they've failed to live up to their own hype. Funny as hell.
  5. Karlsson just took the wind out of their sails.
  6. I love watching the rags snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
  7. I think the spotlight is well and truly on Shero now. He's got the expansion draft, #1 draft pick, 9 other picks, the potential return of Kovy and a ton of cap space to work with this summer. Time for him to shape the future of the team. To say I'm looking forward to see how things unfold over the next few months is an understatement.
  8. Wow. Never in a million did I expect #1. What an off-season this is going to be.
  9. The potected/exposed lists don't need to be submitted until June 17th and will probably be made public June 18th according to the NHL.
  10. I only put Auvitu in my post as he'd been banished to the AHL and never came back up yet the likes of Stollery were getting game time. So I assumed Shero/Hynes didn't rate him. I'd like to see him get another chance. DSP was definitely a let down. Occasional flashes of decent play negated by plenty of games where he just went through the motions. What can be said about JJ? If ever there was a player that everyone wanted to succeed it's him but it's just never worked out for him. Time cut loose imo.
  11. From the exit meetings today. "Pride, tenacity, pushback,” Shero said. “We had it at times but not enough. Not close enough to where we want to be. Some guys had a chance to prove that this year. They won’t be back.” I'm guessing Auvitu, DSP and maybe Bennett & Josefson are on that list. Although I'm in the minority that actually quite liked some of Bennetts play.
  12. Ok. Thanks for clearing that up.
  13. Do teams have to protect players who are RFA/UFA at the time of the draft? I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that if Kinkaid hasn't signed a new contract by then that Wedgwood can be the exposed goalie.
  14. I was just looking at some of the players further down the rankings (slow day, for once) and there are a couple of players racking up the points. Kailer Yamamoto has 99 points in 65 games this year and 227 in total in 190 WHL games. Is his ranking so low because he's only 5'8"?
  15. I agree with pretty much everything on this thread so far, which is a first. My wish list for this off season: 1. Shattenkirk is a must imo. If he doesn't want to play in NJ then Shero needs to let it be known that's why he's not wearing Red & Black. 2. There absolutely has to be a creative D man in the team come next season. Moore, as much as I love seeing a D man rack up the goals, is not the answer. Greene on PP is also not the answer. 3. Use the expansion draft. It's a golden opportunity to poach a decent player. 4. Add some fire power. Before Hall loses the will to live. 5. Win the draft lottery. Yeah, I know but stranger things have happened.
