In Topic: Las Vegas rumored to get an expansion team

Today, 02:52 AM

Just stop adding teams already. How much more watered down and parity filled do we need the league to become? Florida, Phoenix, Nashville and Atlanta all failed, but hey let's keep forcing the expansion issue some more.

At least relocate if they are going to pursue this dumb idea at all.

As someone who lived in Tennessee for awhile and went to preds games. I wouldn't say they failed at all. They're doing well for the market they're in. They just need a better owner who will spend to the cap.

In Topic: Datsyuk or Fedorov?

Best two-way player.  Outside of this forum, not many people have said he's a better player than Crosby or Malkin, or should be rated higher.  
Seems like people now think Tayes is the best two-way player in the game.  

Crosby and makin are still better than toews IMO. The thing that he is better is in leadership.

Its so weird, I think Fedorov is the only player ever to have such a rep for being lazy, and have coaches go to those lengths to get him going, yet has 2 selke's on his resume.

And actually showed up to play and perform well.

Datsyuk much more complete player to me. Although I can not imagine the number Federov would have put up now.

Datsyuk who doesn't score many goals is more complete? I personally don't think so but to each their own...

In Topic: Holland signs 4 year extension with wings **MOD Warning Post 130**

The point is they may have made good moves thus far, but they have no track record yet. That's why I said they were up and coming. All their careers as GM's are brand new. All three may destroy their teams with dumb mistakes in the next 10 years, we don't know. Guys like Chiarelli have lengthier proven track records. That's a guy I trust. And that's why I wouldn't include Nill, Yzerman, and Sakic within the real elite... yet.
I personally don't like a lot of the moves Yzerman has made honestly. Nill does seem to be the best so far to me.

Ya I agree with what you're saying. Nill yzerman and Sakic are all new in the GM world. I also am not a big holland fan ATM but how can you rate those three or above holland is beyond me.

Holland used to do the moves these guys are doing now. So these guys down the road in ten fifteen years maybe they can lose their touch to maybe not.
