That Calgary Non-Goal call...

 

Gary Bettman, et al arena sports need to replace their antiquated camera systems... there is absolutely no excuse with today's technology in video to have those blurred camera shots on the goals.

 

If NASCAR can capture crystal clear, lug nuts coming off at 200mph with their new cameras, the NHL should be using the same too.  Heck, the UK and Japan are already using 8K high frame rate cameras today.

I think having Shero in as GM makes NJ a little bit more of a desirable destination for free agents and players with NTCs

Exactly what everyone I've been conversing with are saying...  it will definitely help on the acquisition side, though the 15% NJ Professional Sport state income tax does kill deals.

EJ Hradek, "Ray, how long has this process been going on? About talking to Lou, phoning him, talking to the owners, when was there the first contact... you guys started communicating/negotiating towards this?

 

Ray Shero, "Ohhh.... probably about 1980-81"

 

laughs and chuckles by all....

Lamoriello as president and Shero as GM is a very strong management team.

Yep,  it is... this move was needed, and it's a good one for the franchise. It's always good to have another set of experienced eyes and grey matter in running the decisions of a franchise.  I've found it more advantageous  having additional executive voice, suggestions, ideas, and even some counter opposition to some of the continued legacy operations of the past.  Sometimes when you have created a dynasty, especially by a legend, it can manifest into surrounding yourself only in your visions and even resulting in hierarchical 'Yes Men' and 'Sycophants'. 

 

Adapt with the complexity of the times, with fresh minds, with successful experienced expertise... It's a WIN-WIN for the Devils organization at all levels, as well as for all the supporters/fans.
