I like it.

Wasn't he acquired with our pick anyway?

In Topic: The Bowman Effect

18 June 2015 - 02:06 AM

I'd never knock the hockey genius of Scottie Bowman. However, once you've developed a reputation as a winner, you end up choosing who you work for rather than developing teams from scratch. I think it's unlikely that Bowman was the factor that brought 3 cups to Chicago. Rather, it's more likely he had the hockey mind to see the potential of the team years in advance.

 

I think successful coaches, GMs, and other personnel in professional sports have a tendency to snowball on their own success. Their padded resume allows them to work with future winners more often.

I can start rumors too. Mine will probably be more true: Holland will do nothing all summer. You heard it here first, folks.

In Topic: Which Sweater Do RWs Retire First - Feds or Ozzy?

If there is doubt and discussion about whether a jersey should be retired, it's not going to happen. As you can see, plenty of doubt about 91 and 30 here.

No one here was posting threads to discuss whether 19 or 5 would go up in the rafters.

In Topic: Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

From the way he took this year's playoff exit, I'd think he'd want another crack at it.
