In Topic: 10,000 Days working for Lou Lamariello

Yesterday, 01:59 PM

Lou was bigger than Blitzer and Harris in NJ, so that is why they needed to push through to another GM.  Shero, being directly hired by Harris and Biltzer, would need to follow their line and not vice versa.


Conte is very loyal to Lou, so I wouldn't expect to see him airing out dirty laundry to TSN.  It would be good, however, to get an open, honest, unfavored review of Lou by someone who may have some critiques about him and has had experience dealing with  - maybe someone like Claude Julien or Bobby Holik.

In Topic: Rumor: Travis Zajac being shopped to Toronto

29 September 2015 - 04:53 PM

Zajac is a good player, but not as dynamic of a player to be the centerpiece of any team.  He, right now, is our 1st line center, and that is a problem.


His intangibles (such as playoff clutchness, leadership, low-key demeanor) are very marketable, especially for a place like Toronto that needs low-key, team first mentors.


I would look for a player the likes of JVR...he is a solid player, a Jersey kid, that could be a force up front.  We would, however, need to replace Zajac at center somehow if this were to go down.

In Topic: Chris Lams gone now

This is a classic case of two potential scenarios:  


1st - Chris, out of loyalty to his father, decided to cut ties with the organization.  Same thing can be said for the other guys that got the axe.


2nd - Shero is building his team of "trusted confidants" that will tow the line according to the way he wants it towed.  No use in having people of the old regime around with different ideas, or better yet, reporting ideas to Lamoriello up in Toronto. 


Better to cut everyone loose and move one with a new crew...

I would like to see "UNITED AIRLINES" on it's HUB teams, like the Kings/Blackhawks/Devils/Sharks.  That would be neat.


Or, perhaps Emirates will take over the NHL by storm.

In Topic: Tom Fitzgerald named Assistant GM

Why does any team need an assistant GM?  What exactly does an assistant GM do?


Too many chiefs and not enough indians.
