Its not a bad looking jersey.  Its different, "modern" and a nice look for one game.  The originals and the Winter Classic jerseys are still way better.

In Topic: Abby Signs 7-year, 29.75 mil Extension

If we didn't lock him up, somebody out there would have paid more (probably around $4.5-5 mil) and we lose him.  If we lose Abby, who creates havoc in front of the net?  Who is a physical presence on our team?  When D, Z and Kronner retire, who is looked to for veteran leadership?  You may not agree with the length or the amount, but truth is we NEED him.  When he got off to that fast start last month, he showed how much of a positive impact he can provide for our team.  Because he's a physical player, I'm a little unsure about the 7 years, but considering all the good things he does for our team, $4.25 mil per year is a GOOD deal.   You also have to take into account that $4.25 mil won't be the same 7 years from now.  The cap will continue to rise and that hit won't be as impactful.

Maybe, or people need to start being honest with themselves and realize that with crappy play like tonight's display will not even come close to holding up against a real team. If it weren't for Z's garbage goal and Petr's awesome net minding, they would not have won the game.


Isn't that kind of like saying, "If it wasn't for the fact that played better than the other team, we would have lost."  lol  I get what you're saying, if we played a better team tonight, we might not have had a favorable outcome.  However, we played the Leafs and we did enough to win it.  I won't be critical of the team until we start LOSING to teams like this one.

In Topic: Kane Off NHL 16 Cover

Stevie was (sorta) on the cover of NHL 96.



I still own this game.   After playing NHL 95 to death, I got this one and it was the first game with an arena announcer and it scared the crap out of me. Decent game, but not as good as NHL 95 though.  If I had a computer capable of running this I'd still be playing it.

For what he means and what he will mean in the future to this team, this is an excellent deal.   :thumbup:
