In Topic: Devils 2015-2016 Schedule

27 June 2015 - 07:28 AM

Devs-Rags on a Sunday at 1:00 in the middle of October. Great idea morons.

Agreed, but the Giants play Monday night that week and the Jets play the Redskins.  Not exactly a big game on their schedule.  Dumber things are the Rangers playing Calgary at 7 when the Giants are hosting the C*wb*ys at 4:25 and then a few weeks later the Rangers playing the Leafs at 7 when the Giants are hosting New England at 4:25.

 

NHL should be doing everything they can to avoid conflicts with the NFL, at least locally. 


It should be a Friday night against the Rangers. Let Hank sit there and watch ten minutes of 2012 and cup highlights. St. Louis or Montreal should be the last two teams it's against. It's a celebration for New Jersey and the Devils organization. I don't want a thousand Habs fans poaching tickets so they can act like they had anything to do with his career.

You want Rangers fans in the building booing?


:lol: that is the only coincidence for the Rangers on a football Sunday in the metro area. They also play in late December but at night. The Giants are earlier in the day. The Rangers have 17 back-to-backs. So busier than the Devs. I'll put up that tomorrow night.

No it isn't.  10/25, 11/15.

My co-workers son plays in the same organization, different team.  Said this is basically a prick of a parent and the whole thing is being blown way out of proportion.

In Topic: Fetisov wants to restrict young Russian players

I mean, he works for the KHL, and it's in the KHL's interests that at least the best Russian players play for the KHL. I also suppose you could say he isn't being completely hypocritical, since he's saying that Russian players should be free to come over before the age that he did.

But ultimately, and especially because he's also a politician, he'd be better off -- not to mention Russia generally -- recognizing that more Russian players would elect to stay in the KHL without coercion if Russia was a better place to live than it currently is, and if the KHL could manage to get its financial house in order so that it doesn't make a guy like Jeff Vanderbeek, look like Warren Buffet.

Then, you do things to make them want to stay.  Whether it be tax breaks, housing allowances, etc.  When the Rangers drafted Cherepanov, he fell to them because 1) issues with the transfer agreement and 2) the KHL at the time was seen as a legitimate threat to the NHL.  I'd be willing to bet that if it actually worked out that way, Ovechkin would go back.  I think he would give his left nut and right lung to go back to play in Russia IF the league was stable.

such a hypocrite.  Basically going against everything he stood for as a player.

In Topic: The Rangers will win the 2015 Stanley Cup. It's a foregone conclus

They're done...this was their chance to win the series.  Now the Rangers'll win Game 7 at home as usual and be 16-3 in elimination games :rolleyes:

I honestly don't put much stock in that.  Theoretically, you can win 16 elimination games in one season.  You can only lose 1.  Kirk McLean was 2-1 in elimination games in the 94 Finals, never hear anyone bring that up.
