In Topic: NHL announces rules changes for 2014-15 season

12 September 2014 - 10:03 AM

Get rid of the trapezoid all together. Secondly, why eliminate the spin o rama in an event that is 100% about fan entertainment?  Third, the diving penalties are a joke.  

 

Usual par for the course annual nonsensical changes by the NHL!

In Topic: Hockey will be back soon... Dano is the new Chico.... why so dead?

I just miss the excitement of game day.

 

Looking forward to the improvements at the arena.  Heard the team store on the main level by the former Verizon Tower is getting expanded even further than last season's mid-season expansion.  Also heard main store by Box Office is being remodeled and now being run by Fanatics.

 

Looking forward to trying out Monk Room and going back to Dino BBQ and EAH.

 

Look forward to see how the young guys pan out and how the older vets hold up.

 

Looking forward to see how Dano does as the season progresses.  I feel he will be irritating at first but then get better as he gets used to it.

 

Me too. I cant wait for opening day, to smell Dino BBQ outside, hear the organist, to see the bright lower level concourse, hear Kevin Clark, sip a cold beer, smell the popcorn in the air. Also looking forward to seeing the improvements around and in the arena. All that and the fact that we should have a playoff team this year makes me so ready for the season to get here.

In Topic: Scott Stevens No Longer on Coaching Staff

I honestly can't believe the hatred people still have for PDB

Yes, his roster decisions are sometime infuriating. Yes, he sat Larsson and the other kids in favor of the veterans (presumably this was his decision - hell if we're speculating maybe it was STEVENS who wanted the tough, chippy veterans in there. That'd be one hell of a twist ending). I'll probably be bitching about him at some point this season.

But the guy has kept this pretty.. lackluster team in the playoff discussion since he started. That's really saying something when you look at just how lacking in talent this team is skill-wise.

PDB deserves the benefit of the doubt at this point. Stevens, a first year assistant coach, does not.

 

Read his interview with TG. He comes off as a coach who knows nothing, decides nothing, cares about nothing. Not one answer given throughout the entire interview. I actually have liked him but as mentioned above, its strange how much of a leash he's been given by Lou.

In Topic: Brodeur would be the Canadiens backup.

Perhaps he wasn't offered the Devils backup job. Do we know for sure he was?


Lets be real, if Marty wanted to come back as a backup initially then Lou would've offered him a 1-yr deal.

So you're willing to be a backup, but not with the club youve spent your whole career?? Dont do this
