In Topic: Realistic Coaching Options thread

No one has made the jump from NCAA to NHL since Herb Brooks. I'm not sure what Hextall is doing here, there were a lot safer bets he could've made at this point of his very early career as GM, he's really putting himself on the line and I'm not sure the hire makes all that much sense for Philly's roster as it is.

 

Hextall hired his kid's coach ;) His son plays for him now so Hextall knows him pretty well.

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

Forgone conclusion? Presidents Trophy or not, I think looking at the 4 teams left the best is in the west. The Ducks are 9-1 so far this post season, with none of the lapses the 9-5 Rags have shown.

In South Jersey the Flyers fans I know understand hockey and their team. The few Rangers fans I know are fly by night types who don't really love the game itself just their team- they would never consider watching Ducks/Hawks for example.

In Topic: What if Parise and Kovalchuk Were Still Devils

I know it's just me, but when I think of how we might have turned out if we hadn't lost 'guy x', it's never Parise or Kovy but Alex Vasyunov.

 

I was sitting just 3 rows back from the glass when he scored his only NHL goal against the Oilers (with tickets from the giveaway), and it still kills me that he and all those others had to die in such am unbelievably stupid and avoidable way.

Where I grew up in the Bronx I was the only Devils fan I knew, though the Rags were maybe 70/30 over the Islanders. Here in Camden County, it's easily 95% Flyers 5% everyone else. Seriously though, they hate the Devils down here, even more than they hate Crosby (which is saying something)
