    I get hating a team because of the fan base, and like I said, that’s fair, but I just don’t have a problem with any of their players or coaches. I guess for me, outside of the Rags, I hate individual players more than specific teams. And with the rat out now, my biggest grudge is probably with Hedman and Kucherov.

    Fair enough. I don’t have to deal with Isles fans, so I can’t speak on that. At least you have a good reason though.

    Tampa has a player that nut-checked our 19 year old rookie (about as big a bitch move as you can get). Other than Coleman I see no reason to root for them either.

    I used to have “two teams” when the Jackets were in the west. And I can assure you I could name pretty much every player on the rosters of both them and the Devils any given year. I picked the Devils as my team during the 2000 playoffs because Scott Stevens quickly became my favorite player when I first got really into the NHL. I’ve been a hardcore NJ fan ever since. I followed the Jackets out of proximity though. I’m in Ohio. I can get to Columbus in just over 90 minutes. They’re televised on my local sports channels, etc. And I fell for the NHL hard (I’d only really watched minor league growing up), so I wanted to consume as much of it as possible. So I rooted for them for years when they were in the west. The only time I didn’t was once a year when the Devils would come to town. I’d be up there rooting for the Devils. I haven’t followed CBJ as closely since they moved to the East, and I certainly don’t root for them anymore as they’re in our division (Tortorella made it even easier while he was there), but I see absolutely nothing wrong with the situation I described, or anyone having a “2nd team” for that matter. You don’t get to tell someone else they aren’t a real fan because they don’t do it the same way you do. Doesn’t work like that.

    Imagine Sterio’s reaction if it’s Lou’s Isles vs the Habs in the finals...lol

    Sucks our pick dropped, but good for all the ex-Devs on NY. Plus I won’t have to see the rat lift another cup.

    Haha both goalies playing the puck like sh!t. They just don’t make them like Marty anymore lol.
  11. Luke would match-up with our timeline perfectly. He’s going to play at least one season at Michigan (maybe even 2). Hopefully by then Nico and Jack have taken the next step, Holtz is in the NHL, Ty Smith has a couple years in the league under his belt, etc.

    I knew a bunch of teams were going to end up regretting passing on Caufield because of his size. Kid looks really good so far.

  16. I’m kind of partial to that logo since my ECHL team basically just copied the design (and slightly altered it).
  17. These will really pop on the ice. I like them a lot.

  19. So Buffalo will likely have two #1OA defensemen. That has to be pretty rare. I can’t think of any other situations like that anyway.
  20. Holtz was the player I wanted the least last year and ofc that’s who we ended up taking. This year it’s Edvinsson so I hope I have better luck this time...

  24. Ofc it has to “lead to something” (obvious statement is obvious), but being a world class skater is a hell of trait to to have. And it’s something players need to develop super early on as kids (see the Hughes bros, Scott Niedermayer, etc). You probably aren’t going to become a good skater out of nowhere as an adult. Just look at Will Butcher. Guy would probably be a stud if he was even an average skater. And it’s more important than ever with how the game is played now. A defenseman can have weaknesses without the puck (like Luke), but if he has the ability to skate the puck out of trouble and has a strong transition game it can make up for it.
