    No argument here. Sad but true. 
    Also heard nhl teams have been asked to provide their stadium availability through July. Summer playoffs sounds good.

    In an effort to replicate what was done in Detroit with the Russian Five, Kenny has been secretly traveling to China to scout with the plan of shocking the world and drafting only Chinese players in the 2020/2021 draft, and creating thus what will be know as the "Mandarin Five" line, which will dominate the NHL for years to come.

    Any opportunity to see a Torts post game interview is never a bad thing.  Especially after a badly officiated game.  As the young whipper snappers are saying these days..."that guy has no chill".

    Holland, obviously.
    It was all part of a conspiracy. They wanted to deliberately keep AA from success. Holland steps aside so that Yzerman gets hired as GM and keeps Blashill as coach. Blashill then deliberately plays AA on the 3rd line with guys like Helm and Flip to keep his numbers down, cuz what coach wants to play their best players? Then Yzerman trades AA back to Holland, who is now GM in Edmonton, so that he can also keep AA down in order to further the conspiracy without making it look like a conspiracy. 
    Or it could just be that AA is really just a 15-20 goal 3rd line winger who had one good offensive year because he cheated on defense. And now teams have figured out how to neutralize him, so Blashill tried to teach him to play a different way in order to be a more effective, well rounded player. AA rejected his coaching, insisting on playing the game his own way and trying to rely on the same tactics that didn't work anymore. So Blashill played him back on the 3rd line where he belongs. And now Edmonton is too.

    And will probably choke in the playoffs in Switzerland.   
    Honestly, unlike Bourque, he doesn't deserve to win the Cup.  In his prime, he underperformed in the  biggest moments.  I hope no contender bothers to acquire him.

    If Yzerman could get Mantha for 5.5 x 5 and AA @ 4.5 x 3? Those would be great value contracts (if they can both stay healthy)

    Learn2LuvIt got a reaction from xault in Gallant fired - Deboer replaces him...   
    Hmmmm....something is off for me on Gallant and his coaching skills and performances vs his firings.  I get it and it definitely can be argued that he's a great vs. good vs. horrible coach.  But this just doesn't add up to me.  I understand the firing from Columbus, but FLA and Vegas don't add up to me.  He was the Jack Adams and The Hockey News/Scotty Bowman Award winner in 2018.  Yes Vegas was ousted in first round last year, but this was after making the SCF the previous year with a first year team, and in the mix to make the playoffs this year....seems like a pretty quick trigger finger to fire on Gallant.  So quick, it leads me to have the opinion that he's brings some sort of baggage with him.  Either being a pain in the @ss to work with or play for, or other off-ice issues.  I just don't buy that FLA and Vegas threw in the towel on him so quickly as he was having success to a certain extent.  I mean....FLA and Vegas were not total train wrecks in terms of records.  I just don't get it and wouldn't be surprised to hear down the road of some sort of off-ice baggage or very difficult to work with management style.    IMO

    In the 2016/17 season the Cats added Marchessault, Yandle, and Demers, and added Matheson to the roster full time for Gallant to work with. Without losing really anyone of significance. Team did worse than the year before and Gallant got his ass fired. That's regression.
    My question still for you is: If Gallant is sucha great coach, do you think they're gonna crumble now under Deboer?
    3 GM's now have fired him pretty quickly into each of his coaching jobs. Did all 3 of them make horrible mistakes? Maybe. But it's starting to add up and appear that there's something wrong with this guy.

    I'm not really disputing this though. Maybe there is something wrong with this guy, but my guess is it may have more to do with off-ice issues than the on-ice product.

    You seem to be using this a lot lately... "Well so-and-so GM / coach disagrees with you"...
    How many awful decisions do we see GM's / coaches make on the regular? Yes, they're professionals, so they should know better than the average fan, but they still make glaring mistakes. all. the. time...
    I'm not saying McPhee McCrimmon made a bad decision firing Gallant, because we don't know what went on behind the scenes, but maybe it was a bad decision...
    Either way, I really like Gallant's coaching style, and would love to see what he (or Laviolette) could do with this team. In saying that, I agree with those wondering if maybe there is some unwanted baggage that comes along with Gallant... But again, I fully trust that Yzerman knows as well as anyone if Gallant would be a good coach for this team.
