In Topic: Expansion to Vegas Apparently "Done Deal"

Err. you might not care for SI's hockey coverage in general, but they're not like hockeyyinsiderr in that they don't make up sources.


In this case, isn't it SI just reporting on someone else's report?

It seems like most of these reports come from reporters I haven't heard from before.  I'll wait for the big guys to report it before I believe it.

 

On the speculation side, I still don't know why I'd ever give permission to a new Toronto team if I was the Maple Leafs.  There would be new revenue generated but a lot of Leafs revenue would be cannibalized, I would think.  I'm sure the league and the Leafs are doing their homework and trying to come up with whatever percentage that would be.

 

I'm not sure Vegas is a great choice either, but maybe it's a worthwhile gamble(OMG! Vegas puns! Imagine the headlines) for the league and would be a splash worth making.

 

On my not really informed level, it seems like Seattle would have a chance to make a really good hockey city.

I'd gladly take Subban at that contract.

Wasn't he higher rated than Quenneville? Quenneville is another where I keep reading that he does all things good, but not one thing they would say is outstanding. We have plenty of those players.


Depends on the outfit but they were both ranked pretty similarly.

Lemieux doesn't really appear great at anything either.

Quennvile had a better scoring rate than Lemieux, but not by a huge margin.

Lemieux had twice as many PIM but without watching both guys play I have no idea if either guys take good or bad penalties.

He can join the army of those that we have. I hope he turns out well but I am not expecting a ton. I know Lou had his hands tied this year but I wish he would have reached for someone with more upside in Lemiuex this year and in past years instead of going for the "typical Devils picks."


Why do we think Lemieux has more upside? I don't see indication in the numbers or in anything I read that says Lemieux has more upside.
