If Cammalleri wants to wear #13 and other guys want to wear what I call "cocky" numbers (like 87, 75, etc) so be it. I don't see how that will ultimately correlate with success...I did like it as it was happening, but change doesn't equate to Armageddon by default.
I think they just realize a number is just a number. It doesn't have any outcome on how players perform so might as well just let them wear whatever they want.
Is Crosby cocky? Sure I would say so but I don't think it's because he wears 87 cause of his birthday. I think it's because he's good and he knows it.
No problem. I know I'm not as detailed and knowledgeable as some other posters here. It's hard when I don't know a lot of the names and numbers cause I don't follow the prospects and drafts picks much.
One guy that really soon out for me was Coleman. He worked really hard and created a bunch of chances.
Really well done event. Have no complaints whatsoever and I look forward to attending this event every summer. They had all the players throw out a bunch of signed pucks after the game to the fans as well.
There were a few interviews as well after the first period with ross and daneyko. Quenneville and Zacha. Zacha thanked the fans for coming out and is excited to be even given a chance to make the big club.
Severson was interviewed after the game and thanked the fans as well and he is Zachas roommate and said he I'd very humble about being a 1st round draft pick.
And lou hasnt been credible in years either. They are actually both on par when it comes to their job quality.
Look at ALL the bad signings, the terrible roster management, the horrible roster structure, all our lost assets, nothing to trade, our team is the oldest in the NHl, no speed, no skills, no good faceoffs guys, 2 head coaches!!!! the team itself is a joke and all we get is typical "status quo" non-sense and denial about what the whole world is seeing. Hes not even willing to admit that we need a rebuilt. Teams who went the right directions accepted what they are and made the right moves, lou as been in denial for 3 years now.
How in hell should we support that guy anymore? For what he did 15 years ago? Then geez lets bring back brodeur then.
And PLEASE dont tell me "hey he built a strong group of young D and got a good goaltender. Allllll the team in the nhl has something good and are way better balanced that we are. Theres no sugarcoating our situation. Were going downhill.
Every year the same people complaning about tickets going up. Maybe it's because 80% of this forum are 18-25 years old. Go complain about property taxes going up, tolls going up, food going up insurance rates post Hurricane Sandy going up. The fact of the matter is if you are a STH you find enjoyment going to games. If you can afford it - renew. If you can't - don't. Just stop complaining about how your going to spend your DISPOSABLE income already.
