  1. I don't want a state of the art cookie cutter like the Pepsi Center or the National Car Rental Center. Those places have no soul. I like what Jerry suggested, Something smaller(17,500-18,000), cosy, low roof and have the majority of the seats in the lower bowl, arenas with more seats there are usually much louder. I'd like them to model it after the Fleetcenter or the United Center, new arena but an old time feel.

    But right now we need goal scorers, Bure can probably chip in 25-30 and that's all we need for him, it's not possible to assemble a team with all 2 way forwards. Plus, we have the great Martin Brodeur in net right? so it wouldn't kill us if we obtain a one dimensional scorer like you claim V. Bure is. He still wouldn't be enough, we have to aquire at least 2 25-30 goal scorers this year to make up for Lou's offseason blunders and they might not be the power forwards you want.

    tri, i heard Van Impe was in negotiations with Florida again but can't back it up with any link. My guess is he's just sitting around waiting for an offer from some team that'll get bit by the injury bug on defense. If Berglund was tearing it up as Claude Jr.(seems like Dantons job now) I wouldn't be interested in V. Bure. But Salo was a bust and is gone, Stevenson's always hurt and his knee is acting up again, Berglund is in Albany, Foster is supposedly hurt again according to Red. Perhaps it's not such a bad idea to trade a defensman for a relatively young forward who's a pretty dynamic player. I admit it's a risk, and Lou doesn't take many risks. But Bure is that guy who can chip in 20-25 goals and 50+ pts, don't we need a player like that?

    Florida threw away Van Impe and he played great for the Isles last year. I don't know where he is and why he's unsigned. Milbury throws away Tarnstrom and he's doing great in Pittsburgh. Keenan is a weird coach that way, he only wants his guys. If you don't play the way he wants, you're benched or released so how do you know he wouldn't fit here, he played well for the Oilers. In the right system he can be a good defensman. I don't think it would hurt taking a chance on a guy like Ulanov or Bure, it wouldn't make the team any worse.

    Ulanov isn't terrible, he's an average defensman and an above average hitter who gets under players skin. We can use a hitter on defense because Stevens doesn't seem willing anymore and Daneyko is a pylon. so he was -4 with the Rags in 39 games, doesn't make him terrible

    1 season with the Rags and Ulanov goes from tough, gritty defensman to complete bum I don't think he's that bad, can't be much worse than Daneyko.

    Toskala!

    I was listening to the game on NHL.com radio, sounds like he made some pretty spectacular saves.
  8. sabres come roaring back, 2-2.
  9. Our schedule is always out of whack at the beginning of the season. 5 days between games and then back2back games is a little ridiculous, by the end of October the Rags will have played 13 games and we will only have played 8. It's like the NHL doesn't want us around until November or something.

    Big 3 Trivia

    Larry Robinson, Serge Savard, and Guy Lapointe, I already mentioned them! or maybe he's talking about Cote, Hatcher, and Iafrate, each scored 20 goals in 1 season for the Caps.

    Lemieux Continues To Amaze

    I'm holding out hope they'll continue to call the obstruction, the results have been great.
  13. I don't think so, just a penalty and you have to switch sticks. It's ok to play with an illegal stick, just make sure you don't get caught.

    Lemieux Continues To Amaze

    neither do the Rags or Leafs or Panthers, or Bruins a lot of teams, including playoff teams, are very thin on D. When they can't clutch and grab players like Lemieux(and Mogilny ) are going to take advantage.
  15. 4 games, 10 points yea yea, I know he's a jerk, another flakey little french canadian, but at the age of 37 hampered by nagging injuries, he's still one of if not the most dominant player in hockey today. It's inevitable, he's going to get hurt, miss games and complain about something, but you have to wonder how many pts he would put up in a full 82 game, relatively obstruction free season? On Lemieux's wing, Alex Kovalev could score 60 goals, on Lemieux's wing, Alexei Morozov goes from career underachiever to a guy who might score 30-40 goals and 80 pts this year.
  16. In his prime Starikov was a decent 6th defensman for CSKA, played with Gusarov a lot. Not very big or quick but did his job, sort of like a Murray Baron. It's been speculated that he lied about his age(like Gusarov) when coming to America, when he first hit the ice for the devils he was already 34 and well past his prime. He and Nemchinov run a hockey camp at Mackay Arena here in NJ, I remember seing bulletins for it on the wall there.
  17. the black shoulder pads look good on the road jerseys but we can do without them completely on the home jerseys, or just replace them with 2 devils logos on top of the shoulders. www.nhluniforms.com great website for checking out uniforms designs and progression.
  18. this guy is hilarious, like the Bill Simmons of hockey writers
  19. Yea, the Rags defense was shakey as usual, Richter bailed them out a couple of times, other times he had no chance. The Rags were screwed twice though, the Barnaby deflection goal was inconclusive and Lindros getting thrown out was complete BS. Belak just slipped into the boards but the ref must've thought Lindros rammed his knee into Belak's head or something.
  20. wow, John Leclair has 4 goals against the Habs tonight 6-2 flyers lead, hitch has whipped them into shape I guess.
  21. a great game, 3-3 going into OT. Isbister gets a breakaway but is pulled down, the puck appears to have rolled across the line before the net is knocked off(at least that's what I saw) the red light comes on but the ref signals penalty shot. Isbister is stoned by Vokoun but 2 seconds later Aucoin fires it home off the faceoff. Thrilling finish The Rags game was great too, only they won 5-4 Holik had his 1st point as a Rag and Bure had 2 nice goals wow, the post obstruction NHL is kind of fun

    let's just face the facts, SALO WAS GARBAGE!!!! He should've been gone after 10 games last season!
  24. you know Mario is loving the new (somewhat) obstruction free NHL, he's on pace for over 200pts
  25. what's so bad about another sykora player? did you forget how great he played for us? how great he was in the playoffs 99-01? was one injury plagued playoff year reason to get rid of him? yea, lets get another Friesen type player, coming off 14 and 17 goal seasons, never living up to expectations, only scored 30 goals once and that was back in 97...
