In Topic: The Transformation of Adam Larsson

Living in Florida, I've seen next to nothing of him this season, but his skating has always been an odd case. You'd almost think he was a converted forward. Skates perfectly fine on the attack, but he can't turn and get his backwards stride going. You'd think this is something a skating specialist could work on.

The stars will get paid. It's a pride thing. And like Triumph said, gazprom is a mega company. Now, if you're playing in an ex-republic, good luck.

Meh, they played a very good team in the finals and had them on the ropes. Roy had a great period and that Adam Foote thing happened. I don't think you can understate what they did to the Pens. They snuffed an inspirational narrative. That series was like Rudy ending with him getting decapitated and his severed head getting kicked through the uprights.

In Topic: Name an NHL captain less skilled than Bryce Salvador

Yeah, because he would be the only player from his home city to play there, and that team was desperate for things to attract fans. Lou wisely saved a draft pick that way - Salvador was probably worth a 2nd rounder.

Yeah, that was a god-awful trade. The Devils got beyond their money's worth out of that one.
