Well the farm team sure as hell sucks. Anyone down there you think will be a difference maker? McLeod? Anderson? Jury is still out on Ty Smith, but even then that’s not much. 

The farm has been on fire of late and yes I do think there are some NHL players down there, including McLeod and Anderson.

it sucks but it's still better than it was. Remember our top prospect was Reid Boucher for the longest time.

Every time I hear Josh Harris talk, I’m baffled that he is a billionaire.

if you go through every seasons and all the moves that were made. Keeping in mind what he had to start with. It was going to take more than 4-5 years to rebuild a strong team. It was simply impossible to do it faster. 

Unless you have some sort of time machine and draft guys with hindsight.

Almost all his trades were "deals" too that had potential. We couldnt do more cause we had no fvcking assets to do anything

Rebuilding a strong team is one thing, but I don’t really blame the owners for being frustrated with seeing literally no strides forward. In fact we’re getting worse.

I’m sorry your expectations were raised by Ray when he made his offseason moves to accelerate the rebuild and go for it. It’s not his fault prospects take time to develop and you were expecting a deep playoff run. I’m also not going to fire him for Grabner and Mojo because that would be ridiculous.

He has had five years.  This didn't start this past offseason.

Five years in and we are in the same exact spot.  If you want to keep spinning those tires be my guest.

He’s not drunk, he just sounds like someone you’d buy weed from at Santa Monica Pier.

Maybe they wanted more than just a little better after 5 years. Not a shot at you, just wondering if that's ownership's thought process right now. I still think it's coach related.

Lol this is what I thought.

From what he is saying it sounds less mutual. It sounds more like Ray was fired.

We’ve played very good hockey the past month and have added to the prospect pool. How is that literally no strides forward?

Sounds like this was a results-based decision in the eyes of ownership.

I still think they’ll give Marty a shot as the next GM I just hope they don’t hire Chiarelli.

Martin Brodeur?

Why is Broduer supporting an interim GM? Brodeur knows nothing

Meh

our best prospect couldn’t even make a bad team. Idk how you can argue it’s anything but grim right now.

Fitzgerald saying he's shocked and it's been a whirlwind few hours.
 

He sounds shaken.

Because 19 year old defensemen with no pro experience don’t usually make NHL clubs. I think people’s expectations are out of whack here.

He was assistant GM in St. Louis and they just won a cup. He must’ve picked up something.

For what it’s worth, Masisack is saying Shero was fired.  Not mincing his words.

Dude that's simply not true. It may not show "result wise" at the moment but anyone looking at this roster and prospect pool and saying it's not better than when Shero took over doesn't know anything about hockey

2 scrubs that will probably never amount to anything and a halfway decent prospect in Bahl. Sorry if I’m not jumping up and down. 

As far as playing a little better recently we haven’t won more than 3 games in a row all season. Let’s not get carried away. It’s mostly been Nico anyway.
