I kept forgetting that he wasn't actually Stuart (with the #23), which was a good sign.</p></blockquote>
Not quite as physical, but I had a very similar thought

Lashoff should take his spot when everyone's healthy.</p></blockquote>
With the way they both played tonight, I can't say I'd be upset to see that... Too much money though, it will never happen...

In Topic: Longest Non-Expansion Eras of the NHL

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...

In Topic: Wings call up McCollum?

21 January 2013 - 01:39 AM

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...

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>
