ehhhhh. lets hold our horses here. it was a slash, absolutely. Subban would have been just fine had he not brought the stick up in the air and strike Stone. Stone, who, took a complete dive btw (don't try telling me flying through the air and throwing both gloves in the air was necessary). In fact, the diagnosis was a "micro fracture," and it is important to note two things: Stone came back to play in that game, and players have definitely played on a broken wrist before (I think Giroux just did it last year).

I hate the Habs, I do, just playing devils advocate here. but don't be surprised when there's no suspension.


Do you play?

Most probably.

During the lockout, if I remember correctly, the Devils players themselves had to pay to open up the practice rink. I'm sure Penguins are paying a fee of some sort.


This had nothing to do with finances, but the fact players could not use team facilities while locked out. The "fee" was them just being consumers.

See Pittsburgh.

You know they are changing the lottery system so getting the best players is far from guarenteed. Without Sid, a generational talent, your argument is much weaker and even then there are more teams that have a lot of top picks thst aren't very good. I don't see the draft as a way to solely build a winner, so being bad for a bunch of years is not the answer IMHO. However, being better at scouting and finding good players teams can't keep is where I would focus. Free agency is tough because you need talent, but you know all the perils of being a buyer. The CBA and playoff forma is making it very difficult to get better. Trades are pretty non-existent. Tough to get significantly better in the short term for all those reasons.

I would change the system to a puck possession game with the D involved way more, think Soviet hockey with more speed.

I realize you use the word shrewd in there but you still have to have assets to acquire talent. The Devils have none. This team is expansion team bad. They are absolutely horrible. The best bet would be to trade their 1 asset and be very bad for a couple more years and then make their way back.


See oilers.
