Someone at the end of his career like Stafford isn't exactly playing for the next contract.

No, he's not playing for his current contract. ;)

It's what I do. The reason behind it is, my day job is way too serious so I act like a 12 year old on the internet to balance it out.

I don’t understand why Lovejoy can’t sit

The d-corps is a little thin, forcing the marginal to play most games.  Any help on the horizon there?  ( And who would want Greene anyway?)

Thoughts on Palmieri potentially being used as trade bait?

Pretty great contract for a streaky 30 goal scorer.  Think he honestly might be one of our more valuable pieces.

I'm nowhere near there yet.  He's definitely streaky, but I see him as part of the solution.  It wasn't so long ago that we all screaming for a guy who could put pucks in the net at a 30 goals per 82 GP pace.

This is true.  I certainly don't want to get rid of him, by any means.

I'm just thinking of ways we could possibly get a top-3 or low end top-2 defender and Palms seems like the only borderline tradeable guy that would fetch us such a piece.

Pretty pissed about that, but it's not like we were the home team, so he wasn't gonna get booed or anything, and there aren't many guys left on the team from that 2012 Cup run anyway, so no one to get vengeance on him either.  It's basically a non-issue now.  He'll get booed the first/next time he's back in NJ by the fans for sure, but that's about it.

For me, the fact that kovalchuk is going to be forced to play through a rebuild in LA for the next 3 years is delicious. 

That is unless a stupid GM tries to acquire him or something. But I believe he's got two more years left and with it being a 35+ contact not many teams will probably be interested

Guys are not going to “get vengeance” over a contract matter. It doesn’t even happen for bad hits on the ice in today’s NHL. Sometimes I wonder what game you guys are watching, it seems better than what I’m watching.

I don't really mean get vengeance in the sense that they'd stab him and take off in a white Bronco.  I do think some of the guys on that 2012 team would have played a bit harder against Kovy during his first game back.

Kovy is a non-entity for me at this point.  What he did sucks, but it was 5 and a half years ago and he was playing on the 4th line of the last place team in the NHL.

Whoops. Meant to put that in the ATL thread.

KK might've been hurt in practice today.

Brace yourselves for the Cory Schneider show.

Was it his catching hand? I noticed him shaking it quite a few times in the last game.

Cory should have gotten the starts a lot sooner in the struggle. Now the team is at a point when they're running out of time to turn the ship around and it's forced. Whatever. I'm so unbelievably disappointed so far. I was really looking forward to hockey this year and we're weeks away from already having to look forward to the draft.
