All-Star (6/11)



  1. Suck for who? He's not exactly going to have the great defense in front of him at any one of those stops he does now and he'll be 36 going into next year coming off a horrible playoffs.
  2. Lou's always been a pretty good trader - even in the period of time where Devil fans were ragging on him the only truly horrendous trade he made was Tuomo Ruutu, and even that was a only 3rd rounder way down the line. But yeah the tankathon in his first year was the Shanaplan and they already had other young talent in the organization.
  3. The JT situation is probably a big reason they're begging Lou to come on. They need a respected leader to entice him to stay with that dumpster fire. Why Lou would go there is obvious (besides the whole competitive juices thing) - location closer to home and they're hoarding Chris in the organization, like the Ducks hoarded Rob to eventually get Scott.

    2016 Draft

    lol the NHL's really trolling the talking heads
  6. Like someone else said he didn't even know who was going to be on the board at 29 cause that decision had to be made before the draft. The worst part of not giving up 29 might be having to go from 10 to 30 in 2014. Even if Quenneville took a leap last year I still don't see him as anything more than prime Travis Zajac at best.
  7. They had Elias bobbleheads the last time they promoed them when they hawked the crap out of their team bobblehead sets (Elias, Parise, Langs, Marty).
  8. I'm not arguing whether Lou should have been fired or not...but losing Kovalchuk certainly did not help matters the last two years. And Lou lost his job because of the last two years. That was my point. You and others think he wanted Kovalchuk out of here because of the cap nonsense but losing Kovalchuk did not help him put a winning product on the ice, and that cost him his job. Attributing Kovalchuk leaving to Lou and the organization wanting him to leave is just another way for the Kovy-fanboys to excuse the fact he's just a money-hungry flake.
  9. You guys are making it out to be that they bought the team solely because Kovalchuk was off the books. Or that they don't have to pay anyone else to replace Kovalchuk. They don't save $75 million, they save $75 milllion minus players they have to pay over the life of the contract to replace him (Jagr, for example, or Cammaleri followed by other FA signings down the road). And Lou could give two hoots about making the team more palatable for new ownership to buy, he lost his job at the hands of those same owners because the team stunk the last two years.
  10. And you think the sale took less than a month to happen? It was already in the works, they didn't decide to buy the team cause they didn't have to pay the Kovalchuk contract. The owners bought the team to get the Prudential Center rights as much as anything else, which JVB wasn't willing to sell until the end.
  11. Down?! Well you're an anomaly, my prices went up from $22 to $30 in like three years. That said it's a little hard for people to seperate ownership from the people they hire. I doubt ownership gets involved on a macro level with ticket prices and the whole resale nonsense. Blaming them for things Weber and O'Neill do are like blaming them for things Lou did in hockey ops.
  12. Why would he sign with the Leafs, because of Lou? He stabbed Lou in the back more or less, and don't give me that nonsense about how it was a mutual decision for him to walk away, there's no way Lou wanted his leading scorer to go to Russia for no compensation with new ownership coming in. Lou lost his job cause of the last two years.
  13. He isn't eligible to play in the NHL this season if they miss the 8/15 deadline that's the difference.
  14. I actually like giving Gelinas 44 cause of the instant comp to Souray lol Tootoo as 22...come on, that's a no-brainer. And Cammy just didn't look right in 23, I've been so used to seeing him as 13. Sal's number hasn't been lifted off his back then lol
