We very often take Mike for granted. He may very well be the best coach in the league.

If you're going to copy and paste the whole article (which is discouraged on this board)... think you could take 10 seconds to make it readable? Posted Image

Seriously? There was one thing out of place. Those types of comments are discouraged on this board.

babcocks death stare + "were back" comment = the entire league simultaneously s***ting their pants

#2033201 Devils fined and have 2 draft picks taken

Posted by egroen on 14 September 2010 - 08:39 AM

Is it possible for the Devils to argue this punishment? This seems in no way fair to them. They certainly aren't the first team to circumvent and the NHL pretty much agrees with that assessment based on their looking into Luongo's and Hossa's contracts, as well as the fact that the amended rules go against multiple players' contracts throughout the league (which are being grandfathered in, apparently). If punishments are going out, why only the Devils? If you can't rightfully justify punishing all teams that circumvented the cap (which you can't) then don't punish anyone.

No, once the arbitrator deems it cap circumvention the commissioner has sole discretion to hand out the punishment... Which is binding and cannot be appealed.

Can you imagine Bettman's reception in New Jersey were the Devils to win the Cup? Lol

#2032959 NHL preparing for work stoppage with refs

So, the idea is that fans will now have to pay money to see a game with men who they've never heard of before?
Isn't that what they'll be doing in Chicago this season?

Congrats on a great career, Rod. Glad to see the Carolina franchise doing the right thing by him.

What a ******... He also bashes the city of Detroit.

Oh, the self-righteous indignation!

You do realize that myself and the other folks from down south (Tennessee and beyond) have to suffer through all the redneck/hillbilly nonsense EVERY time that the Wings play in Nashville, right?

So, this whole "he's picking on Detroit!", rings very hollow.

From TSN :

Fedotenko will fit in perfectly with the Rangers.... a somewhat talented player who plays hard about 15% of the time.

I've finally been around long enough to make the joke. :)

Yeah, unfortunately, nothing is better than NHL refs. And I mean that literally. "Nothing" would be pretty big improvement over NHL refs. :ph34r:

The ones in the minor leagues are worlds worse than the current refs.

None of them have been shot in Detroit though, right? That already gives us a leg up.
