  1. Whoa, Davidson/Gorton were doing a really good job on their rebuild. Fortunately, Dolan is kind of an idiot.
  2. this rebuild(s) is really starting to lag. The sad thing is that Palms was traded for near the beginning of the rebuild as an up and coming scorer in the younger age range we wanted and now leaves a seasoned veteran as we are still rebuilding.
  3. Could work out to be a good trade, Caps are deep on d. If it doesn't atleast it's cheaper than Mueller was
  4. Kulikov is a decent pick-up and got him pretty cheap. There is a role for him on this team.
  5. I'm way late on this but Doc was great, one of the best play-by-plays guys in all of professional sports.
  6. Naturally the Oilers are the early front runners in the Lafreniere sweepstakes. I've caught a bit of it so far and I'm enjoying it more than I thought I would, missed watching hockey
  7. Bad name and the jerseys look kind of bush league to me. If I was a Seattle hockey fan I would be disappointed with the packaging
  8. I'm not surprised that they are taking their time. The Devils probably don't play again until in January. Presuming things start up again, there will be playoffs and an offseason which will produce the fullest range of options, in the meantime Fitz is doing the job and not going anywhere. I think there is a good chance it will be Fitz anyway but I don't see the downside of letting it play out.
  9. I'd be surprised. Once they start interviewing other candidates it is unlikely they are sticking with the interim, they just say the interim is a candidate but if they were really sold on him as head coach they would name him. I don't want him either. It's a decent group of candidates, out of that group I am hoping for Laviolette, really proven coach that I think would a fit for the roster style wise.
  10. It's an idea but one that tarnishes the season and I would rather they do it in a different way so I guess we'll disagree.
  11. Agree, ending the season with a different playoff format than what it began with does tarnish it for sure. From an integrity standpoint the best would have been to finish the schedule, do the playoffs and shorten next year.
  12. For the first time in ages I logged on and clicked on this thread to see what if there were developments with Taylor Hall contract talks and instead only learned how Alf ended lol. Ended about as well as Hall's tenure in New Jersey I guess.
  13. a meaningless late season game is when Schneider shines so expect a strong performance from him
  14. and don't forget the starting goaltender Cory Schneider
  15. agree, I used to kind of root for Cleveland just because they have been down for so long but I can't cheer for that arrogant Mayfield who hasn't done sh!t
  16. Yup, they've been the undisputed worst organization in pro sports for many years.
  17. Agree with you there that's what he did best. He may not be the guy you want to do the drafting but he is the guy you want to trade for the draft picks.
  18. Yes, that's the dysfunctional part that sounds set up to make the GM less effective. Analytics reporting directly to ownership, sounds like the front office is trying to model themselves after the Cleveland Browns. A-List GM isn't coming to a team with that set up so this is very concerning.
  19. You can't make a strong case for Shero based on the results but I don't like it. He inherited an abyss of a franchise I felt like he at least had the right strategy in going about the rebuild. Made some excellent trades, some didn't work out. His drafting seems mediocre but I'm concerned about what's next
  20. I hate to nitpick but we're 4-3-1 (it seemed a little optimistic so I checked, reg losses to Colorado, Washington and Columbus), but I agree with your point. Hall's teams have almost always been bottom feeders, not his fault but on the other hand other than 17-18 he has never shown the ability to move the needle for his team.
  21. I think North Americans want the best on best to come back to the Olympics to for sure, Ovi seemed particularly pissed about it.
  22. I guess he's still pissed about not being able to play in the Olympics
