In Topic: Gelinas Missing from Practice

not everything is about the game or money, the man has made millions of dollars over the course of his career.. when the day comes that his head is like a can of tomatoe soup and he cant enjoy a personal life with his family anymore i dont think that is worth any amount of money that he wont be able to enjoy anyay.. he has suffered head trauma over and over again clearly his condition is getting worse he is extremely fragile at this point.. think about what youre saying.

I guess you are grossly unfamiliar with the CBA. Please see Chris Pronger. Christ, the NHL lets him take on a job that even pays him additional cash while being LTIR.

 

The league PAYS cash. When I spoke to Shanahan I asked him to sum up the difference between playing and making the now famous Shananban videos in one sentence. His answer was a very stout, "more lucrative."

clowe needs to just retire he is clearly not stable to play the game anymore.

Yes, I would retire being owed millions of dollars and just forfeit that pay too.

He did say that under Deboer, they were told if there was no play, dump it in.


DeBoer and the 29 other coaches around the league.

To me the Devils have to get their defensemen more involved in the neutral zone. Now I think we've seen some of that under DeBoer this year as compared to last, but they need to push the pace more. The Devils can't be going up ice with 2 on 3s and 3 on 3s and expect to get much out of that.


This is very much dead on. If you recall back to the Cup run Zach said the same thing. I have noticed the D activation a bit more recently, this is why Harrold is in the lineup. Unfortunately, guys like Zids and Gelinas can really hurt you with their decision making playing this way. I have said for a long time now they are squandering Greene's offensive ability. I think Fayne was really strong not necessarily pushing the pace, but he read plays extremely well and his play 25 feet inside the blue line was superb.

The room must be way worse than anyone has let on to. This is the equivalent of having Dad come down and give the kids some attitude adjustment. It puts Lou in the trenches and will really allow him to see how bad this roster is, so that is a plus.(there is a huge difference between sitting at suite level and sending out the next line of garbage personally) Not sure why Dave Barr was fired. They could have just removed the row of seats behind the bench to fit him in. This is gonna be interesting for sure, this screams Lou is fighting for his job.

This just in... Oates has the mumps.
