Can't wait till next year and hopefully we are 100% healthy, I think we could challenge for the division if we stay healthy.

Lightning sign GM Yzerman to contract extension

07 April 2014 - 03:07 PM


The Tampa Bay Lightning have signed general manager Steve Yzerman to a four-year contract extension. Yzerman had one year left on his current contract.


The Lightning are heading to the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the second time in Yzerman's four seasons. They made it all the way to Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final in 2011 before losing to the eventual Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins.

"Since the day Steve agreed to serve as our vice president and general manager, he has worked tirelessly to transform our hockey department and establish the groundwork for sustained success," Lightning chairman and governor Jeff Vinik said in making the announcement. "We are very pleased with Steve's job performance thus far, and I am fully confident Steve remains the right person to continue to lead us.


"Organizationally, we remain committed to playing at the highest levels each season -- regularly competing for the Stanley Cup -- and I am very pleased that Steve has elected to be our leader for the next several years."

With Yzerman as general manager, the Lightning are 144-114-32 in just under four full seasons.

"I'm grateful for the opportunity to continue the process we started four years ago and would like to thank Jeff Vinik for entrusting me with the responsibility of leading the Tampa Bay Lightning," Yzerman said. "I'm very excited about what lies ahead for our organization and truly enjoy working with a fantastic group of people in Tampa Bay."





Great for Stevie!

NHL players will not participate in 2018 Olympics (Mod Post #99)

09 February 2014 - 08:00 PM


During a Friday afternoon appearance on TSN 1050 Radio in Toronto, TSN reporter Darren Dreger passed along the news that the NHL "will not" participate in the 2018 Winter Olympic Games, which will be hosted in Pyeongchang, South Korea.





Not really that surprising. When do Olympic clauses start getting introduced ? :lol:

Petr Mrazek Christmas Spririt

17 December 2013 - 07:15 PM

Weve seen plenty of creative masks for the NHLs outdoor games, from Ilya Bryzgalovs tribute to Philadelphia to Jonathan Berniers ode to pond hockey to the Carey Price mask that still gives us waking nightmares.
What we havent seen from goalies is themed creativity in their other equipment. Thankfully, Detroit Red Wings goalie Petr Mrazek is attempting to reverse that trend this season with the most adorable pads weve ever seen:

These pads were tweeted out by former NHLer Brent Johnson and Kathryn Jean (@msconduct). No word on the designer, but one imagines its Ms. Migillicuttys first-grade class in Ann Arbor.
(And six snowflakes on each pad for THE ORIGINAL SIX! Or just because they fit that way. One of the two.)
Barring something unforeseen, Mrazek should be in action at Comerica Parks Winter Festival game between the Wings AHL affiliate, the Grand Rapids Griffins, and the Toronto Maple Leafs AHL team, the Toronto Marlies, on Dec. 30.
The assumption around the Red Wings is that Jimmy Howard will be healthy for the Jan. 1 Winter Classic at The Big House, as he recovers from a sprained MCL. But if he cant go, goalie Mrazek would likely be the backup to Jonas Gustavsson.
No matter in what game he appears, Mrazek should be confident that all shooters are going high glove side. No one with an ounce of the holiday spirit could dare unleash a slap shot at Frosty, could they?
(Also, it would be the greatest thing in the history of winter if the snowman's carrot nose lit up every time the puck crossed the line...)

Those are Awesome!
