  1. Best line I heard on this pick the Jets made was listening to Joe Beningo this morning. Guy calls in and says not much wrong about the Jets pick. Beningo says: "it's the Jets, what possibly could go wrong??"
  2. Ha. I remember the vote and when they said the team's name was the Devils the reaction from the Archdiocese was not good at all And when they gave the explanation of the whole legend of the Jersey Devil I remember saying, " I've never heard about that anywhere till now. "
  3. It's not a question of regretting the trade, but I think that there will be some questions raised about the whole point of the trade unless Ray Shero is able to add some help this offseason to give Hall more support and to provide the younger players they plan to bring up more support as well.
  4. Remember, Boucher was the 99th pick. So him not exactly setting the NHL on fire is one thing. Mcleod's play when he gets here better be top 6 caliber or we all have a problem.
  5. I don't think they are going into a complete tear down. GM's don't rush in line do go there. . I think NHL GM's feel that if you can compete for the playoffs, you try. They'll try and re-tool and try to compete. Once you go in the complete tear down route, there are no guarantees of when you can even compete again for a post season spot.
  6. Oh, I'm not disputing that he knows the process. However, the end result of this is still just speculation. This sort of reminds me of last year at around training camp. Friedman had an item in his column that went like this: "spoke to an agent I know, he says that someone he knows in Toronto that they would love Travis Zajac on the Leafs." From there, Rich Chere had a headline: "Leafs Interested in Zajac." The next day I turn on the NHL Network and Darren Drager leads off his insider report like this: I've got a big one out of New Jersey. Sources close to the Devils say that Toronto and the Devils might pull off a deal for Travis Zajac". Dreger goes on and uses Chere as his source close to the Devils, while Chere pulled his source from a thought in Friedman's column and all Friedman did was quote an agent he knew. Sometimes these guys have the gals at my wife's beauty parlor beat by 20 lengths.
  7. Elliotte Friedman is a top notch reporter/columnist, and well respected. But he's also not the gospel and isn't always 100%. So this is really just a bunch of nothing until Ray Shero actually makes it so or not so.
  8. Yes. If I remember that summer, after he left there was one ownership group before Harris/Blitzer that almost came in. So that is a great point. I also felt that they should have restored the full pick instead of giving them a 30th, the new owners weren't part of that and spent a fair amount of money to buy a franchise that the NHL was kind of financially running at that time.
  9. Sorry to see the Cap-Leafs series end. Most exciting games of all the 1st round, and it felt like a 7 gamer. Can Washington finally breakthrough? They probably will have to get by 2 old playoff antagonists and exorcise those demons in the Pens and Rangers. Although the Sens play that really structured system well, it wouldn't surprise me if they were to bump the Rangers off....please do. I think Washington may just finally do this. Oh..nice job by the league putting the 2 second round Game one's of the East against each other. Way to treat your fans.
  10. Friedman mentions a sign and trade. I can't see a team giving him more than 1 year at 34 years old. So a team has to fit him under the Cap and give up assets. What kind of return would that bring if it's a sign and trade on a 1 year deal?
  11. Taking my emotions out I would not mind a sign and trade, if Shero can work a good deal out. This team has so many needs at this point any options that can be used to improve it are welcome. Let me ask this question about Russian players. They've been very vocal about the Olympics and leaving their teams to go over and play. The other players haven't said they would do that. So going forward would it be a consideration about passing on Russian players because of their Olympic situation?
  12. The Canadians better come out playing tonight and bring this to a game 7. Too much Steve Ott on the ice for my liking. My fear going into the playoffs was that if the Rangers were to get by Montreal, they would probably be playing in the Conference Finals. I would prefer that not happen.
  13. One thing about Tim Murray that always sort of stuck with me was his reaction when losing out on McDavid. I wonder how Eichel felt when his future boss acted like he was some sort of consolation prize. These let's "be bad to get good" rebuilds in the Cap Era are no sure thing.
  14. From the outside this move doesn't make Jack Eichel look good. I'm sure there's probably more to it.
  15. Let's see what Shero does in the offseason. If he is as busy as he seems to be telegraphing, things could look a lot different. I know I'm throwing Severson out there and he may be part of the solution or he may be somewhere else. But if Shero is able to do some things this offseason to bring in some D-men, you never know.
