Would Larsson and a pick be suitable for O'Reily?


If he was signed, maybe. Just to trade for ROR's rights, I wouldn't give up on Larsson. I'd rather just throw a pick at Col for that, not sure what kind of pick would be needed to do that though. I don't have the memory of some on this board so maybe someone could remind us what has been traded for a player's rights in the past few seasons.

Can't believe Columbus lost that one. Everyone who thought Pitt was for real is getting reminded that they get killed when they play a team with discipline and a good forechecking system though. If we had made it over Columbus,I think we would have had a good chance to win. Not that I think Columbus doesn't, but that loss is gonna sting.

You could also try to see a few games in D.C., not sure how hard it is to get tickets there though. Also, Amtrak has express trains that make good time to Newark. I know from Baltimore it was about the same amount of time it would have taken to drive and there was food and beer. Although it was way more expensive than a bus, like $70 each way compared to $25. Taking a greyhound was really cheap, but always awful. Bus was always late and it took double the time driving did. I know boltbus is cheap and faster, but you'd have to stay overnight as I don't think they run buses late at night like you can sometimes get with greyhound.

Thing is that most people still do not know you can go to the Goal Bar even if you do not have tickets there. They put a guard there even before the game so people assume it is off-limits. Take that stuff away and you would see the Goal Bar getting crushed.

Plus the Lounges are far nicer than the Goal Bar. The GB is another thing at the Rock that seems like it was never completely finished.


The goal bar is only open to everyone before and after the game. During the game you have to have seats in particular sections. I don't recall which sections are included in that. I'm positive it's not open to all though.

Maybe that's how they run the lounges next year then? Everyone allowed before and after the game, but during, only those with tickets at center ice. I know if it was open to all for the whole game, I'm doing everything I can to stake out a spot in there to watch from the top of the lower bowl. That's the best spot to watch a game imo.

I definitely thought Brunner looked better than Ryder in the last stretch of games. I liked the Ryder signing because I thought he could be a younger, better Sykora, but god damn is he an AWFUL skater and the man can't stick handle around a fvcking cone, much less an NHL defenseman. He is the epitome of one dimensional.
