    Abdelkader Needs To Go

    Getting myself back on topic, Abby is well overpaid, but if used as a 3rd/4th line forward he can play that role quite well and be a role model for the younger guys.

    Abdelkader Needs To Go

    Been a busy time for me. Not nearly as much time to watch hockey as I’d like, but I have had a lot of theater pit gigs, I’m playing with a new band, and actually was booked to play a developmental run of a show by a guy who has several Emmys. I’m enjoying the down time. I’ve missed you guys.

    -RIP- Ray Emery drowns at 35 years old

    I agree wholeheartedly as a former swim lesson instructor and lifeguard. And as you say, even the best swimmers shouldn’t swim alone. The Emery tragedy was felt locally as he was loved in this area when he tended the goal for the B-Sens.

    4 strings or 5?

    Jonathan Bernier Signs 3yr. $3M AAV

    Bernier is a decent goalie. In a tandem with Jimmy he should be fine. Hopefully he doesn’t have another Nelson Mandela moment in an interview.

    Mike Green Officially Signed *Mod Warning Page 4*

    Less cap space than his old hit, but imho the NMC/NTC or lack thereof will make the call for many folks. We need his offense.

    Strange Red Wings trade rumor video.

    Sounds eerily like an old school Speak and Spell...
  9. Just a random thought... he had some snarl early on but the suspension of 5 games for a preseason headshot may have been more of a setback than many think due to his perceived lack of mental toughness.

    The MANtha watch.....

    Been too long since I’ve been on. Huge ups for the Star Blazers mention, I was also a huge Robotech fan back in the day. DBZ was just from my kids watching. obligatory topic return: Mantha is gonna be beastly once he puts everything together. Good start to this season for the most part, but is Blashill going to sour that relationship the way he did with AA?

    Ryan Sproul traded for Matt Puempel

    I saw Puempel a few times when he played in Binghamton for the Baby Sens. He was pretty meh as a player, imho,, but was popular with the fan base, FWIW.

    10/13 - Red Wings at Golden Knights - 10:30 PM EST

    This start has been a pleasant surprise. I just watched the highlights, and he boys were looking pretty good. Hank is in beast mode, but we have more than 1 line of players clicking, which bodes well.

    If he offers his "introductory stats course" again, can we at least sticky it for everyone's benefit?

    Maybe their twitter post got the Zetterbeard just a wee bit fired up.

    Disney Buys Star Wars, 3 New Films Coming

    Not a bad theory, though the trailer puts it to doubts. I was saying to friends Luke had gone to the dark side before the first new film because he wasn't in any of the posters or promos. Looking forward to the new film though.
  17. Coyle 's play was dirty. Too much butt hurt over clean hits. Make him pay with another PP goal.
  18. You have momentum, put your skates on their throats and crush them. Do NOT let them back into this game.
  19. Zetterberg! Fear the beard. Great diving play by Daley to stop the rush towards our zone not too much earlier.
  20. My bass rig has more power than the new horn
  21. Great 2nd. Stay strong and bring it home in the 4rd. About time they gave Jimmy some multi-goal run support. Has he looked his average self between the pipes tonight in the first half of the game? I got home at 10:30 if the 2nd.

    Just don't start calling him Ras El Goal.

    The 13th F......

    Biggest difference between a one-way and a two-way contract, if I recall correctly, is that on a one-way, the player makes his full NHL salary even if sent down, while for a two-way contract the player makes a lower salary if he is in the AHL.

    Andersson leaving the NHL after the Playoffs

    Interesting point about babs leaving. Kind of weird how that seems to be working out.

    2017 NHL China Games

    Surprised you didn't mention Jinder Mahal. With his constant help from the Singh brothers it is almost a team sport.
