In Topic: Brandon Sutter traded to Canucks

Screw Edler. How do we get Dan Hamhuis here? Looks like Benning has lost his marbles, trading a 2nd+prospect to barely improve his 2nd/3rd line center? Yikes. My buddies a Vancouver fan and he is hating his life this offseason :lol:


I thought the Canucks off season last year was a disaster.

In Topic: Lou Lamoriello new GM of the Leafs

I'm talking about this http://www.nj.com/de...ith_devils.html

Maybe telling him that he would have to battle for the number 1 spot would have been better.

Anyhow that situation in Toronto will be very interesting.


Brodeur was averaging .900 save % and over 2.50GAA


Schneider averaging .921 save % and less then 2.00GAA.


Why should he start over Scheider again? Because he's Martin Brodeur?


Hasek got benched for Osgood in the playoffs when he wasn't good enough.

But these salaries are getting ridiculous. Look at the contracts signed recently and the money. How are markets like Phoenix and Florida supposed to content and keep up when now mid level players are being paid like the stars were 3-4 years ago? 

It's nuts. And for a guy like Holtby to ask for 8m? It's just continuing to drive salaries up across the board.


I doubt he was being realistic with that number. It's like any negotiation, you start at a high number and meet in the middle.


6.1 / year for Holtby is not bad at all.

Huh? Shanahan is the VP, his job will be to act as the middle man between ownership and the front office. Now that he has his stuff in place I think he'll focus on the business side but Lou is the GM sure Shanahan can overrule him but why should he Lou is the must experienced guy there by far.


As has been stated multiple times they all make the big decisions together, I'm not talking small decisions (waives, scratches etc). If the raw data is in front of Shanny and it shows player x is better then player y even know Lou says player y is better, Shanny is going to take player x. Example: If Nylander dominates the AHL next year, and the raw data shows he was better then Leivo, he will be up with the Leafs.


Shanny has already said he bought into analytics and he believes that's where the game is heading.


Anyways I'm done going off topic about this.
