In Topic: Dougie Hamilton traded to Calgary

Sorry, but I disagree.  He is leaving a major market because he priced himself out and now he is getting considerably less based on the weaker Canadian Dollar and higher taxes.

 

Time will tell.  But now they have to pay Giordano.

 

They don't get paid in $CAD. With the dollar tanking, he's going to be living in Calgary tax free pretty much.

One of the worst deals in NHL history. It absolutely made no sense. I actually feel bad for Bruins fans.

Lindros is a top 5 forward talent the game has seen in the last 30 years-40 years. He is a generational talent that unfortunately had serious concussion issues.

 

Bure was a dynamic scorer, one of the best ever but he isn't the overall dominant player that Lindros was. That's no insult. The great thing for Bure's legacy is his career injured just as the expected decline was about to happen. I wonder what would be reasonable to expect from him from age 32-36 goal wise.

 

Anyway, Bure's numbers were insane in Florida, but he was used in a way we'll never see anyone used again. 26-27 minutes a night, 6-7min a night on the PP. Just insane usage, and he delivered, but I can think of a few guys over the last decade that could have done something similar given that opportunity.

I'd love to know how after passing over Phil Housley, the group decides that he'll go in now over the likes of Lindros and Recchi? Like does the committee come to an agreement that Mark Recchi is without a doubt a HOFer, but that they should wait a year or two to vote him in so Phil Housley can finally get in?

 

I'd also love to see how they came to a decision to vote Pavel Bure in years ago, when someone like Eric Lindros, a much better player, still can't get in. These are supposedly some of the smartest people in hockey...and for the last 4 years they are saying that they think Bure was better than Lindros. Absolutely mind-blowing.

So, should the Devils still go after Mike Richards for veteran and Cup leadership? 

 

What fantastic timing.
