The tournament would be better if it was all just straight up knock out from game 1 on.  That means every game is a playoff game.  It would get the weaker national team something to fight for from the start.  This new idea is pointless.

I'd rather they just make a tourney with the big 6 than any of the gimmick sh!t.  Players care about playing for their country... One of my favorite moments in this tournament was when Guerin dropped the gloves with Stevens when they were both NJD.  Playing for your country matters to these guys.

If I'm Buffalo and I end up with 2 overall would I package my 3 first rounders for 1 overall. Should the team with the 1st pick do the deal?

After all the unique talk, it sure sounds like Lou Lamoriello is the interim head coach, and Stevens and Oates are the assistants. Will that change? I have a feeling it doesn't because if thing don't get better, Lou can just say, I deserve to be facing the media. And if they turn it around, Lou can just say the arrangement is working where they can focus on coaching and teaching, and don't have to deal with the media.

 

There is a big picture here. Someone needs to focus on managing the personnel, and with an already thin management staff, I can't stand this arrangement. Lou can stand behind the bench and learn a bit about the team, but nothing that happens from January on should really change his thought process moving forward. Do you want a few wins to cloud the big picture and reality of this team? Do you think a better second half changes much past this season?

 

Going behind the bench seems like a bunch of crap. Lou talked about the positivity on the bench with the players and the new staff when they were down in the 3rd. Well if he was there under Deboer, I doubt he'd see much different.

What he says and he's thinking are two totally different things.
