In Topic: TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

17 October 2014 - 02:11 AM

This is all nonsense. Our team is good. Bruins and Ducks are 2 of best 5 teams in the league. And we are going toe to toe with them without 2 of our 5 highest paid players. We are going to be a good threat this year. Oddsmakers have us at 17-1.

Exactly

 

 

It's not about honor it's about longterm success, getting ahead of an already better competition. Whoever gets McEichel will have a franchise player for at least a decade and a half.

This same strategy has worked out great for Edmonton

Jimmy had an awesome game.

 

Smith was out best defenseman (again)

 

Glendenning was noticeably good

 

Zetterberg was noticeable off

 

The Griffin line is going to keep on getting better. 

 

I like where we are right now... now let's get Pavs on the ice!


In Topic: Fan turnout at last night's Panthers' game

15 October 2014 - 01:16 AM

Watched some on TV. Was seriously a joke, worse turnout I've ever seen at a major sporting event, including preseason games. It was just a sea of empty seats. Team obviously needs to be moved and rebranded. One hockey team for Florida is enough. 

 

Exactly!

 

Here's what you do (Bettman)... move Florida to whichever Eastern Canadian city you want to grace with a team (Hamilton, Quebec City, etc.), redraw the divisions, and expand two teams.

 

My solution:

Metropolitan (almost all of these teams are near the Atlantic)--> Atlantic: Carolina, New Jersey, New York Islanders, New York Rangers, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Tampa Bay, Washington

Atlantic (only one team is actually on the Atlantic)--> Northeast: Boston, Buffalo, Detroit, ColumbusHamilton/Quebec City, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto,   

Midwest: Chicago, Colorado, Dallas, Minnesota, Nashville, Saskatoon/Kansas City, St. Louis, Winnepeg

Pacific: Anaheim, Calgary, Edmonton, Los Angeles, Pheonix, San Jose, Seattle, Vancouver

It's Sunday and I am still pissed about yesterday's game. I felt from the start of the 2nd period we dominate the play. I loved the way we were skating and deserved a better fate. Fricking brain hemorrhage the way that game ended.

 

If I was Kronner, I would have taken off my skate that threw it at the refs head... the ref up the board stopped watching the play to pick up a stick. Pure crap.

 

Nesty did not look good... the 4th line, however, was awesome. Q had a good game too.

 

I'm missing Pavs.
