I must give Tampa credit. I thought they were finished after losing at home in game 6, but they quieted that toilet bowl and played another perfect road game. Thank you ... I can watch tomorrow and the SCF in peace now.

In Topic: So are we going to ask for compensation for DeBoer?

28 May 2015 - 09:15 PM

As Rutherford says in the article, the rule is wrong on many levels. It should apply only to employees under contract that haven't been fired or demoted. To think that the Pens could have prevented Bylsma from taking the Buffalo HC job if they didn't agree with the compensation, over a year after they fired him, is just plain stupid.

I'm not surprised at all that the Devils didn't ask for compensation for PDB. It's the classy and right thing to do. That has Lou written all over it (it might be something Shero would do as well, I just don't enough about him to make that call).

I like the hire of DeBoer a lot.  I think he'll be a great fit in San Jose.


Good for him.  When he had the horses in 2012, this team played well and was fun to watch.  He had his issues, but he was dealt some severe blows by the losses of Parise and Kovy in back to back seasons.  Unfortunately, he's taking over another team trending downward, but I think he will work well in SJ. 


I've met him before and have played pond hockey with his pee-wee aged son.  Really good, nice people.   I wish him nothing but the best.

Still gotta play the game and upsets do happen.


I get it.  But the fact remains that the Rags have the far superior goalie and are playing at home, so they can get the matchups they want.  They rarely lose Game 7's at the Garden, and have the experience to deal with this kind of pressure.  The Bolts (like the Caps last round) had their chance to finish this thing off at home and blew it.  So frustrating to watch.

fvcking hell. Tampa better get their sh!t together on Friday and steal a victory. I'm tired of the sh!t.

I wouldn't bet on that happening. This series ended last night. We better hope Anaheim or Chicago is up to the task in the finals.
