I am starting to think there were non-hockey related issues with Poni


I'm really wishing Poni waited for the Zach stuff to settle. I think he definitely had a place here once that mess was in order.

Zharkov played for the Devils last season. Obviously considering how the team was set up at the time, he was put in a position where he could do nothing, so he went back.

As I said, I think they knew Zharkov was on the way out and didn't even bother bringing him up. There must have been some reason that no one wanted him on the big club.


Because Lou, as smart as he is, isn't quite sure what wins and loses hockey games.

I'm pretty sure Zharkov wouldn't be on the way out if he had played 50 games here. Hell, even in the 4 games he was here, his line was positive in shot differential. Of course, once he left, they went back to being way in the negative.

I know he was a good player in those terms. The 'apparently Zharkov isn't an NHLer' thing was a sarcastic comment. What I'm saying is that even with Kovy's influence (if he has any), Zharkov still couldn't stick. Mills and Sestito couldn't score or pass and weren't as good, but they played. That's why I feel there was a non-hockey reason that he didn't always get the call, and one that I could think of was that he had expressed his intention to leave.

The psychology of that line was weird all year. It takes Stephen Gionta scoring a goal in a glorified exhibition game to make them think differently. He's not better than Zharkov, he might be more willing to take the body, but still...

So if Zharkov gets a garbage goal, do they change the setup of the line around? lol.

I don't watch Albany but you look at Gionta's numbers this year and it looks like a guy who is at the end of his rope. And he's still significantly better than the NHL 4th line wings that were used for much of the season.

He has played with black players before, Trevor Daley was on the Stars and the Stars actually have a black assistant coach on their team too Paul Jerrard.

Yeah, but his slur against Subban occurred when he was on the Panthers.

Don't worry, this is just a bad dream. We're all going to wake up in bed surrounded by Zach, Kovy, Suter and Quick, all smiling and handing us season tickets.

Still doesn't mean he hates all black people. sh!t gets said under the heat of the moment and Subban pays the game like an asshat so I could understand why someone would blow up and say whatever they felt like to him whether it be right or wrong.

Well, if we're going to ramble about the guy being racist, it's only fair to put out what he said.

Who cares if he sucks, all goons suck. The day of the Randy McKay "player-goon" are long over. As if this impedes them from doing something else and it means Tedenby won't be handed a roster spot like dumbass Nick last year and it means they obviously won't trade any defenseman and they'll roll with 8.

Do these guys all have the same agent? Maybe it's a Lou style kick-back. "Yeah, here's a contract. Enjoy that 10%, wink-nod."

If it's just back up in case one goon gets hurt, I just wish he'd keep the other goon in the minors. Having them both on the NHL roster is just... I mean even as a guy who understands that their role is necessary, I can't understand having both at once.

Hm? They can't go with 8 and fit everyone on the roster unless you believe that Cam Janssen is headed for the minors, which we know isn't happening. That's just to give Lou some potential roster flexibility.
