I know they are from Boston but some of their songs are just made for hockey. Another thing I love about our sport most hardrock/new-metall and metal songs are just matching so well other sports can't say the same thing (nascar with country being the exception)
Don't worry about it. I spoke with Tomas Tatar today and he assured me that while he has every intention of listening to loud music, getting smashed, and chasing tail all night; it absolutely will not hinder his ability to score two goals (including the game winner) tomorrow night. It was more than a guarantee...he said it was basically science.
Tatar + (booze x women x dancing) = Playoff success.
Or something of the like.
Bottleofsmoke we need you to take one for the team again!!
If you negotiate like that no player will re-sign. Every forward would be compared to Gretzky...
The market for defenders this year is at an all-time bad, Amac would have been on of the best available defenseman, his agent he and Holmer knew it. The Flyers prospect pool ie one of the worst in the league so they need to overpay for talent and this is far from a crazy contract. The cap keeps rising Timonen will be off the books.
Look I'm not trying to say this contract is great but it is indeed market value for a guy like Amac. Is Phaneuf worth 7 million per ? No he would have gotten that come July 1 it's as simple as that. I'm always trying to look at things from a player point of view they have a once in a lifetime chance to go to UFA if you want them to give that up, the GM better pays well a hockey career isn't that long and they need to cash in.
It doesn't matter which way you slice it. This is a bad contract, and like usual they'll regret it
The fact that Babcock hasn't won this trophy despite his incredible career is a bit of a joke.
When the team was stacked he didn't win because they were too good. Now he can't win because other teams did better. Give the man the award. He deserves it.
Has ever even been nominated?
Several coaches have won with stacked teams, bylsma, boudreau, vigneault. Others have won because they coached through adversity, it seems they just give it to whoever they feel like, no real rhyme or reason. If ever there were a year for babs to win it would be this year. Also last year babs was in 10th place in voting for it
