"The $297,297 Kovalchuk missed today is money he will never, ever get back. And the more cheques he misses, the better the deal is going to have to be for the players to justify him sitting out. And unlike the owners, the players can direct their leadership to get a deal done regardless of how disadvantageous it is to them."

Interesting. When they asked him for his analysis, did he just stand there and stare vacantly ahead?

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe... Attack ships on fire off the shoulder
of Orion. I've watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate.
All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in the rain.

Was he looking like he was about to cry?

I thought he did ok. Caught it in-progress so I wasn't 100% sure it was him at first.

I'm so sad about the whole situation with MacLean. He was my favorite player as a young kid and I fear that the coaching debacle last year will tarnish his name even as a player in the minds of the fans. He really did put his time in with the organization and it'd be a shame for him to be seen as lesser than he was just because of last year.

This might be a dumb question but is MacLean's main residency even in New Jersey?

I believe so. Saw him on Friday afternoon at Aspen Ice in Randolph watching his son try out for the Delbarton Varsity team.

Because they're dopes. The same dopes who think the first half of 2010-11 was a one man clusterfvck (Toe Blake or friggin Scotty Bowman in their coaching primes wouldn't have helped that start). The same dopes that badger him for signing with the Rangers. The same dopes who never forgave him for asking for a trade.

Although a failure as a head coach, Mac was a great Devil. Next time i see him, i'll shake his hand and remind him there are still fans of this team who remember that.

Good post. I used to get mad at guys like Johnny Mac or Bruce Driver for ending up with the Rangers at the ends of their careers. But now that I'm older, and have a house and kid of my own, I understand that if they have to go somewhere, they oughta stay local so as to not uproot everyone and everything they care about. You can say, "well that's why they make millions" or "that's how pro sports works and they chose to do that for a living", but when you have the option to stay somewhat local, you can't blame them for taking it.

I met him and Tommy Albelin at Shannon Rose in Clifton, of course I shooked hands and introduced myself. Not sure if I said my name or not, it was happy hour at the time. :beerbang:
