    Who will be LGW's whipping boy this season?

    Kindl, Lashoff and Weiss. Take your pick if the first two are still on the team in October.

    Holland Holding on to Jeff Blashill

    http://kuklaskorner.com/tmr/comments/holland-holding-on-to-jeff-blashill I thought this was an interesting story given that both Babcock and Blashill have expiring contracts next year. By holding on to Blashill this year it takes some negotiating power away from Babcock next year.

    A plea to Holland.

    "Even is he is undersized and not rugged" - I remember Rafalski's last year here and people complaining that he got ran by opposing team's large forwards. Shudder to think what would be said of Almquist.

    Backes on playing against Malkin and Crosby

    And now we all see the value the Grind Line brought to the Wings years ago. They could play tough against the best lines of other teams and could also score.

    Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

    Exactly.

    Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

    Thats all nice however what did Helene SJ say the Canucks wanted for Kesler: Young forwards (plural), prospect and a 1st rounder. So if we ASSUME that the Canucks would at least want the same for Edler then you have to compare that trade to the Legwand trade. I'll play devil's advocate here and say they would want both Nyquist and Tatar, the prospect being of better quality than Jarnkrok (I believe Mantha was mentioned) and that oh-so-delicious 1st round draft pick which no one wants to give up. Seriously, is everyone just pissed about the Legwand deal because we got Legwand for Eaves, Jarnkrok and the 3rd/2nd instead of Kesler or Edler?

    Official 2014 Olympic Hockey Thread (Admin warning #316)

    Some guy in my office has the Sweden-Czech game streaming from the BBC right now. Incredible how lame the announcers are, particularly the guy with the British accent who knows little about hockey. I never thought I would miss Doc, Ed and Pierre. "DRIVE".

    NHL may rethink Sochi

    This is all about the insurance premiums that were paid to cover the NHL players' contracts. Do a google search on the subject and you will see that this was an extraordinary amount of money that needed to be paid to cover the salaries. Now imagine what the terms of the insurance coverage are, i.e. what exactly does it cover and what does it not cover. This is about money, not politics.

    Sedin Twins

    I was listening to Buccigross on ESPN radio the last time their contracts were up and they told the hockey world they wanted to stay together on the same team. The other reporter/announcer asked Buccigross about them staying together and made some comment about it being strange, to which Buccigross says "Swede" in the same way a farmer says "Suueee" to pigs.

    Buffalo Sabres unveil new third jerseys

    Why the color gray? Seriously, what does gray contribute to these jerseys?

    Pierre McGuire's past that NBC doesn't want you to know about

    You could probably post this same info on many coaches. For some reason, Patrick Roy comes to mind.

    Question about Buying out Samuelsson

    In a similar vein, would it be possible to place Sammy on LTIR for next season? Would that save salary cap space? And if he were to contest that and want to play, then would he be eligible for a buyout?
