So I guess I haven't read this thread in a while --

Here's the thing with the trying out of veterans --- our coaching staff is stocked with the best vets on the planet. I think having half-assed vets on the team takes away from asst coach voices. Our coaching staff is too stupid to know they have this amazing gift most players don't have - I'm talking Robinson as much as anyone here. So they keep a little distance trying to let guys find their voice -- not realizing Dude -- they have NO VOICE. YOU DO so you have to butt in because it really IS your job.

No one steps up on the Devils - even Larianov who should have lead a little just sat back threw in a little something here or there tossed a valuable bone to one guy or maybe two --- Holik -- dude can't lead, that's settled now - he can just sit back and take pot shots. Vets don't step up as the organization would expect them to - too wussy - too modest too whatever.

It would be nice if someone steps up and leads this year I must say. I'm not convinced that message has really come across with the purge...

Not a UFA or a Trade news but:


Buffalo is changing their arena name from HSBC Arena to First Niagara Center.

Hmm. Calling it the F'n Center could rival The Rock for coolest arena nickname. We've got competition, boys and girls.

With what most RFAs are signing at, this is a great cap-deal for the Sharks

Well it is a lot colder in Winnipeg than Atlanta, he probably just wanted a little something to keep him warmer...

Doughty rejected multi offers including 9 yrs/61.2M. The 6.8 aav would have matched Kopitar's as #Kings highest
