Re: GDT - Mar 19 - St. Louis @ Vancouver - 7:00 PST SNET

The second period success was largely due to coaching changes in penalty killing, breakouts, offensive zone puck management and obviously coaching motivation.

Give AV an extention now.

Re: Jensen heading to SEL ??

Jensen, two goals already...Here is our cap friendly replacement for David 'low returns' Booth. Booth out with what looks like a nasty ankle injury. Cue Jensen's call-up. Unless it's Archibald or they want to bring the smurf up for winger duty. Please, somebody other than Bill Sweatt. The flip side...

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

Anyone want to bet me that 1 hour after trade deadline day MG does nothing to improve this team. At the same time trade deadline day is usually pretty stupid with GM asking high prices for scrubs. If MG wants to do something he needs to be working the phone now and not on trade deadline day. I have...

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

Holland and Babcock are in a very simular situation to Gillis and Vigneault. The Wings just lost to Columbus twice and Calgary. They've lost 6 of 7 games games this year to Columbus, Calgary and Minnesota. They have 12 goals in their last 8 games and have scored one powerplay goal on the road all se...

Re: GDT - Canucks vs. Predators (Mar 14/2013)

Heard Ray Ferraro say this morning the 2 least entertaining games he's seen this year both involved Nashville. Nashville has not lost when scoring the first goal and and has not won when not scoring the first goal. James Duthie says there will be a 1st intermission comedy piece involving him, Luongo...

Re: Why the Oilers "rebuild" is truly doomed

Amazingly, it just keeps on going.... Howson hired today by the Oilers as a scout.

Re: Has AV's time come?

You can't suggest a coaching change unless you offer up a replacement at the same time. Replacements will be different mid-season and end of season.

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

The league is supposed to be projecting $2.4 B in revenues just in this 48 game season. If that growth continues and Phoenix is solved in the next year, the cap will go up leaps and bounds again over the next number of years. Getzlaf at $8.25M this season is a lot, but the same cap hit in three year...

They must be. Great minds tell me the true measure of management is how many young draft picks are in your lineup, not how you manage your team or how much you win.

Re: Why the Oilers "rebuild" is truly doomed

Now they have one more year before Nugent-Hopkins has to get paid. The first year was halved by injuries and this year is halved by the lockout. The team bar says he'll be getting $6M after playing about 150 games because they rushed to sign Eberle and Hall to big deals despite having leverage. In t...

Re: Mar 5 Sharks @ Canucks S-Pac - 7pm

The result was not great, but the process was great. They keep playing like that, they'll be more than fine. Canucks almost doubled the Sharks in chances over 3 periods. The PP did not give up a shorthanded goal to Burish - Schnieder did. Once the PP got warmed it, it was dominant. They didn't score...

Re: Advanced stats/ Moneypuck

One of the things lost on "moneyball" guys is that it still costs money. Sure the A's built a competitive team using sabrematrics but the success was the 2004 Red Sox with the second highest payroll in baseball. It's my understanding Moneyball is more about finding market inefficiency that stats. T...

Re: GDT: March 3rd - Canucks vs Kings 7:00PST HNiC

Good thing the "most overrated GM ever" held onto him this year. Now, instead of putting Raymond on waivers, maybe he could get a 7th rounder for him. Or lose him for nothing in the offseason as a UFA. Probably the most likely option. Don't get me wrong, it's nice Raymond's playing well, but unless...
