    Longest Non-Expansion Eras of the NHL

    <blockquote class='ipsBlockquote'data-author="Richdg" data-cid="2343168" data-time="1358807145"><p> expansion? hell no! if anything, the NHL needs to contract. To many teams and not enough talent to support them. It is all a matter of population. Compare MLB-30 teams and the NHL. What is the population of the baseball playing world? US, mexico, venuzula, DR, Japan, Korea, Tiawan, etc...... est 700 million+. How about the hockey playing world? Canada, Swedan, Finland, the former USSR, etc... There might be a total of 300 million. The NHL should reduce back down to 24 teams and build those teams up and have a better overall product.</p></blockquote> I think your numbers are wayyyyy off, but I agree with your assessment of where the talent pool comes from and there bring a great disparity on that pool's size... With that said, as we've already touched on, there's no way they need expansion... I personally think they should contract to 28, have two 14 team conferences (just for scheduling purposes), no divisions and go playoffs seeding of top 16 make it, no conferences for playoffs, 1 plays 16, 2 plays 15, etc... Kill Florida, kill Phoenix, move NYI to Quebec, do a dispersal draft, sit back and watch the ratings and revenue go up... If you really want, go ahead and move Nashville to Kansas City while you're at it...

    Wings call up McCollum?

    Because he'll only be an emergency option/blow out replacement/bench warmer... Mrazek is much better served playing in GR, than warning the bench and holding a clip-board here... <blockquote class='ipsBlockquote'data-author="rick zombo" data-cid="2342875" data-time="1358748382"><p> Why Mc? Because the Monster's hurt. <br /> <br /> But seriously, why Mc? Because:<br /> <br /> 1. He's out of options this year and the Wings need to see if he's worth hanging on to. <br /> <br /> 2. Mrazek is waiver exempt next year, and the year after, at least. So, no need to rush him. <br /> <br /> 3. Mrazek is playing 60-70% of the games in GR, so leave him there to keep playing. If you've going to call someone up just to ride the pine, it might as well be McCollum.</p></blockquote> Ding.ding.ding.

    Giant Griffins bench-clearing brawl

    <blockquote class='ipsBlockquote'data-author="kylee" data-cid="2342530" data-time="1358664860"><p> The Wings need this to happen. Show some heart</p></blockquote> I know, right?! Remember that big bench clearing brawl the Islanders had last year that really jump started that stellar run of theirs to the cup last year!

    I figured I'd just start a thread as a place holder for who will soon become the LGW whipping boy... He's by no means all our problems, but he looked horrible tonight...

    Jamie Benn

So why would Dallas make this deal? I hope this is a joke response in the same vein as the other "suggestions" in this thread..

    Lombardi traded to Phoenix

    He was never an integral part of that trade to Toronto, he had a bad injury and some thought he may never come back... Tor got rid of the HORRIBLE Lebda acquisition and got Franson who was a highly rated prospect, that wanted out of Nsh, and cash strapped Nsh got a prospect in Slaney in return and dumped the Lombardi contract that they had to pay real money for while he was injured, while only absorbing the remainder of a mostly paid Lebda contract... This deal was more about money than anything and Lombardi was never in Toronto's plans...

    Samuelsson has sore groin; day to day

    We've never won a cup in the salary cup era without Samuelsson
