#2683927 DeKeyser re-signed to a 6 year deal

Posted by DickieDunn on 26 July 2016 - 09:18 AM

Unless he gets significantly better, if he's the cornerstone of the defense, the team is screwed

#2683607 Fans rank front offices....Wings 21st

Posted by DickieDunn on 21 July 2016 - 07:16 PM

The moves Holland as been making aren't geared towards winning the Cup, they're geared towards just making the playoffs and keeping the band together. If a GM can't move on from guys like Helm and Miller, who can he move on from?

Small European forwards.... Kenny just has to catch them all.

#2682563 Tootoo to TwoCity (CHI aka Second City)

Posted by chaps80 on 07 July 2016 - 05:00 PM

Still pisses me off how he was treated here. Was a pointless signing by Holland (who for one rare time actually signed a tough playerto fill a need)because Babcock didn't want him, then he had to be bought out. Communication is a good thing sometimes. Idiots.
I dunno if Tootoo will see much playing time in Chicago though, but at least he's got an NHL contract again.

#2677865 NHL Chooses Las Vegas for 17-18 Expansion

Posted by F.Michael on 16 June 2016 - 10:20 AM

That and more importantly i believe a team will relocate to Quebec City ... Maybe Carolina Hurricanes

And don't forget Winnipeg got Atlanta during a hockey season so it's a possibility Quebec also joins Vegas in 2017-2018

This would be a best possible scenario.


Hopefully when a team does make it's way to QC - these bad boys are resurrected...

I wonder if the venue will have such of  Vegas amenities as a Drive-thru chapel or a Fat Elvis impersonator as the hot dog vendor. Rockettes as Ice girls.

#2677102 2016 SCF: San Jose Sharks vs. Pittsburgh Penguins

Posted by xtrememachine1 on 07 June 2016 - 08:50 AM

Pittsburgh has never won the Cup on home ice.  


Although they had a chance in the 1995 Finals before the game was interrupted by terrorist attacks in OT of game 7.


It's a shame, Tolliver was really on top of his game in that one too.

#2677069 Possible Leak of Florida Panthers New Logo

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 06 June 2016 - 06:35 PM

Nothing wrong with the original Panthers jersey.  No makeover needed.  


Please give Carolina a new jersey, color scheme and logo.  Same with Arizona and a few others.  

I agree with this, I liked the original Panthers jersey so much that I own one. This new one is a downgrade as far as i'm concerned. I liked the Fisherman Islanders jersey too so my opinion is compromised. 

#2676475 ECF : Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Pittsburgh Penguins

Posted by Euro_Twins on 24 May 2016 - 04:43 PM

I actually think Fleury has been good in the playoffs other than 2 years....which were dreadful.  With them going back to Murray, I wonder what that does to Fleury's confidence?  Game 5 of the conference finals was a tough spot to be starting your first game in a couple months, so perhaps they discussed this and whether they stuck with it or not wasn't a big deal as he needs to shake off the rust.  On the Murray side, perhaps they thought he just needed a break as he never started that many games in a row before + high pressure games.  I also don't think it was just 1 bad game, he wasn't great for a few in a row.
I think they are in trouble now...obviously being down 3-2, but it's never good to have a question mark in goal at this time of year.  They'd probably argue the issue is deciding between 2 very capable goalies, which is probably true, but the whole mess they've made of it can't be a confidence booster.

I think what you mean to say is that fleury has ONLY been good in two playoffs. Other than that his numbers range from 2.40-4.63 gaa and .875-.915 sv%

I always hated Shawn Michaels. He was a tool of a wrestler. Always a Hogan, Brett Hitman Heart and Taker fan. Glad Penguins lost in his visit lol.

I always wanted the Wings to have a Holmstrom, Helm, Hudler line.   :hehe:

I had it in my NHL 12 team as my 3rd line and called it the tiriple H line


Hulk Hogan is a Lightning fan.  Just sayin..............

...don't go there, Brother!
