Stalberg is going down for conditioning. Nashville Want to keep him. I can see this being one of those situations where no one claims him so they don't poss off another GM, so there isn't any form of revenge claim.

If I was a GM I would be cautious. As a fan I would do it in a second.

I posed this question earlier - but what DO the Devils stand for at this point?

The same thing we always have. Playing for the badge on the front. And being a team that plays hard and works hard. And a team that treats people the right way and does things professionally.

That's my interpretation.

This current group doesn't play as well as others , and they don't have the skill of teams from the past. But they still put the jersey on every night. They still compete for the badge on the front and not the name on the back, and I still want to see them try.

Having an identity does not come down to how successful you are on the ice. If you happy to see our team intentionally under perform and piss on the legacy of the team and what the badge means then I find that quite sad.

I don't think we will need to tank. The team just isn't very good and all the things we needed to go well, like staying healthy, just haven't happened.

That being said, as runninwiththedevil says, it's not our style. We always laughed at the fact the penguins only built their team from sucking.

Let's not become the penguins.I want this team to win as many as possible and at the end of the season we can look back at it and say at least we have our values. At least we still stand for what we have always stood for.

Admittedly I am not paying any money to watch this disaster on ice. However a few years ago I would be condoning the booing from such a stretch.

However now it just seems crule and unnecessary. These guys are trying but they are either too old or not simply not talented enough.

I would hope the booing was for the management of the team and how the franchise has been left to drift into this position. Not the guys on the ice.

It depends what sort of team you want to build on EA Sports NHL 15 really.
