In Topic: NHL Chooses Las Vegas for 17-18 Expansion

20 June 2016 - 05:13 PM

I know players can get in trouble anywhere, but come on, Vegas?! Players are going to be in the casinos all night, and/or driving 60 miles north of the city where there's legalized prostitution.


I think football is the only sport that can work in Vegas. It's only 9 home dates to sell tickets to, instead of 41. A lot of the casinos will be giving away free hockey tickets.

In Topic: Datsyuk Announcement to Officially Leave NHL

I thought Holland would convince Datsyuk to play one more year.


I didn't watch the press conferences, but it makes for an interesting off season. If Holland trades Dats contract, will he go after Stamkos, or use the money to re-sign Helm, and give guys like Nyquist, Tatar, Smith, and DeKeyser raises when they become FA's?

As much as I dislike The Sharks, they're turned into one of those teams that I feel sorry for, because they can't win. We had 6 rough years before we finally won in 1997, but this is 12 years for The Sharks. Unless they can win 3 in a row, they'll continue to be the worst playoff team ever!

In Topic: Datsyuk - someone who works for JLA told me he's sold his house

Playing in a 2 or 3 week tournament in your home country where your daughter lives is much different then being across the world for 9 months a year. Who is to say that his daughter isn't at the game watching her father, going out for dinner with him afterwards etc.  And even if she isnt, its a very short tournament, just not the same.


I understand it, just sounded funny.

On the locker clean out day Datsyuk signed everyones jersey and took individual pictures with his teammates. That doesnt sound like someone coming back.


Has he talked to Holland yet? When Dats said he still needs to talk to Holland, that was big for me. If he retires, fine, but if I'm betting money, I'll put in on he's coming back.

I know the World Championships are in his home country, but I thought it was funny Datsyuk said he wanted to spend more time with his daughter, but he's playing for team Russia... I haven't been following things close, but I still think Dats comes back to finish his contract. Even if his Detroit  house is sold, he can rent a year.
