  1. Yea of course the expectations were different, he would've gotten his walking papers by now if he had this lack of success with that roster. But not many guys can keep their job after 5 or 6 years and only making one playoff appearance. I think his seat will start getting warm if this season doesn't get turned around. Maybe he gets one more coach, but not with the leash he's given Hynes. I think he'd get two more full seasons to get results if there's a coaching change this year.
  2. What's the average shelf life of an NHL GM? He's already been here four plus years and made the playoffs one time. The dude won a cup in Pittsburgh and was fired after 8. It's not that I think he's doing a bad job, it's that this is a results driven industry where the best of the best are put out of work every year. Have to eat crow every time this comes up, I was all aboard the Nolan trade. Couldn't be happier I was wrong.
  3. I was primarily amused that he was committing to 7 more years with a GM that's almost certain not to make it that long. The coach won't be here. How many guys on the roster have been here 7 years? Greene and Zajac, Cory will be in June (which is hard to believe).
  4. I wonder how it feels to know he and Jack will probably be the only two still with the organization when this expires.
  5. Great deal for the Devils, and Nico will be hitting FA again at 27 or 28. That's another big time contract if his career continues on the trajectory it's expected to.
  6. I thought the first goal was on vatanen, who floated out to the half boards to chase a puck and didn't get back to the front of the net while the play developed behind him. The broadcast blamed jack for leaving his man, who scored, to occupy the high slot and puck watch. A 5v5 goal is usually the result of a mistake from at least two or three guys, always interesting to see what people pick out. I think MB stopped hanging around when people started seriously publicly speculating about him having intellectual disabilities. I'd stop coming, too.

    Nothing about this is correct. Brett Brown inherited a team built to lose, and just lost in game 7 to the eventual NBA champs at the buzzer. They could've won the title had that ball not taken an almost impossible bounce. They seem to be ok with the status quo? The Sixers were one of the worst teams NBA history a few years ago, and are now one of the best teams in the east. They're also on their fourth GM since taking over in 2011.
  8. Tactically overmatched in every zone of every period in every game.

    Apparently Eichel hated Bylsma so much that he told the Buffalo front office that it was him or Bylsma. I know that Eichel comes off as someone easy to not get along with, but I don't want a guy that has that hanging over his head. Do we want Jack or Nico or Hall on a walk year butting heads with a new coach?

    I'm surprised he was given an 0-2-2 leash, but yea, he's Shero's guy. But one win isn't going to save his job. If the team is playing NHL .500, he's gotta go. I think he'd need to set the world on fire through October. Or, I hope that's what it would take. I bet Ray is gonna roll through his USA Hockey rolodex before he does anything else. Any decent American coaches without a job? I'm not saying he'll only hire an American coach, but if there's a good one available, I'd guess they'd be the front runner. He wouldn't be dumb enough to hire Bylsma, would he?
  11. Will forever love Carter Hart for losing the gold in 2017 and the outdoor game in 2018 for Canada. He'll always be a loser to me. If Hynes is the coach in the morning, he won't be Friday if they don't beat Edmonton.
  12. I mean, kind of? In good faith banter, though. You guys are alright for Mets fans.
  13. I said somewhere at some point not to worry about him once he signed with the rags. This is the inevitable outcome of any big time rangers signing. People act like the sky is falling when they land these guys, and it never is.
  14. Really liked what I saw from Gignac a few times, hard on the forecheck and crafty with the puck in the attacking zone. Pop was fun to watch. He looks like a traditional stay at home defenseman with his body type and the way he moves, funny seeing him playing forward for some reason. Didn't catch much of the white team. I was down in the corner right against the glass on the side red was shooting.
