Re: what has to happen to get the ship on course?

Theory aside, maybe we are failing to mention the most obvious thing that us as fans hate to admit or say, maybe this team has past it's time. :( We all know this team reached it's pinnacle in 2011. Sedin's were in their primes, we had amazing depth throughout the lineup: Ehrhoff, Salo, Rome. We ba...

Re: what has to happen to get the ship on course?

I'll just link this from my post in the GDT: Seriously though...WTF? We surely are on a huge skid and I have no doubt the roster needs a boost but writing this team off now is ridiculous. -This is the same core that has dominated the league for 3+ years. -They have enjoyed all kinds of success, bot...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Its unfortunate the JS could not step up and be that playmaker to make our second line dangerous. But that is what we are missing. Andrew Cassells anyone? :mrgreen: :mrgreen: Thast the type of player I'm thinking, with a little more speed of course. It's pretty tough for young players to step up an...

Re: Has AV's time come?

I will start this by saying I am actually OK with no playoffs this year.....if it means a high draft pick. Shortened season, if we were to win our first Cup after just a 48 game regular season people would just go around calling it a chicken shit way to win a Cup and it would get tarred with the bru...

Re: GDT - Canucks go Wild in MinneSnowta. 5pm -Snet-P

I disagree Blob, AV is a good coach, it's the team put in place by Gillis for AV to coach that ain't cutting the mustard. Outside of the Sedins, Burrows, Raymond, Hansen, Higgins, Kassian the rest of the forwards can all fucking go IMO. Schroeder needs to go back to Chicago. His inability to trade ...

Re: GDT - Canucks go Wild in MinneSnowta. 5pm -Snet-P

Not Cory's fault.....it went off him and in, but he could have had it. Curious if you'd cut Lou the same slack if it was him instead of Cory? Yes, I would, and I did. I was death on his weak goals, but when the team shit the bed in front of him and hung him out to dry like that, I always gave him t...

Maybe they concocted a plan on how to lose the coach.... we can only hope.
I'm thinking so.....down 1 right away. Now dominating the play but generating nothing.

Re: GDT - Canucks go Wild in MinneSnowta. 5pm -Snet-P

LMAO!!!!!!!

Faceoff.

Wild into the zone.

Defense lets them walk in and generate a brief odd-man situation.

First shot.

Goal.

Not Cory's fault.....it went off him and in, but he could have had it.

This team sucks.

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Is he in Crosby/Malkin territory? Is he worth Stamkos money? Malkin will be 27 when his present contract expires, we’ll see what he gets about 1 year henceforth. It will be interesting to see where the Penguins are in the next couple years. Malkin, Letang, Sutter, Kunitz, Orpik, and Niskanen will a...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Looking at the top 20 salaries in the league.....(not cap hits as the argument here has been expecting a trend towards actual value/salary rather than long contracts with frontloaded salary to drop cap hit towards the end of the contract). Shea Weber $14M Brad Richards $12M Tyler Myers $12M Zach Par...

Stamkos is 27 and will be 35 when his contract expires.

...

Stamkos will be 26 when his contract expires, we’ll see what he gets about 3 years henceforth.
WTF? :look:

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

I think some of what we are seeing is NHL owners and GM's in the US running their teams like they would an NBA, NFL, or MLB franchise. In the NBA you can pretty much be competitive with 3 players making huge cash and eating up 50%, or more, of your total salary cap. Those 3 guys can almost guarantee...

And Chicago finally lost.....epically to the Avs. 6-2! WTF.....I know they said that the Canucks were staying an extra night in Columbus before heading to Minny.....was that a smokescreen and AV and Co secretly flew to Denver, mugged the Hawks on their way off the bus and then went out in Chicago's ...
