In Topic: CapGeek shuts down

03 January 2015 - 10:48 PM

I've kept in touch with Matt on and off for years (for a short time he wrote about the Red Wings' prospects on this site before the turn of the century and branching out to Rivals.com and eventually RWC). We worked a bit on CapGeek together and this is truly sad news.

 

Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. I know the decision made tonight was an extremely difficult one for him....

Matt is there anyway someone could help run it?...wow I hate to hear that. Was an awesome site. It was used many MANY times here. I hope everything is ok with him. In our thoughts and prayers.

Pretty sure the collapsing Russian economy resulting from Putin's disasterous foreign policy blunders has more to do with it than their penchant to overpay.  Particularly considering the league was subsidized by the government (currently dealing with sanctions and declining foreign investment). 

 

Or it was bad contracts.  Either way. 

Look at you trying to get the Political thread up and running again. =)

In Topic: Jimmy sucks in a shootout Howard

Wouldn't it make a little more sense to 'gamble' a bit during overtime to try and end the game before shootout given their poor shootout record. If the D gets caught pinching and they give up an odd man rush and loose in OT is it really a big deal? The biggest disadvantage is that it will go as a Win rather than a Shootout Win in the standings for the opposition, but I'd roll the dice and take a lot of chances in OT. There were a few occasions last night where the D went for a change rather than join the rush. I distinctly recall Oullett doing that last night in OT.

Well and to add to that most teams I'm sure if that make it to OT with us would be leaning more towards trying to make it to a shootout with us rather than try to give up anything in the OT. So teams will play more defensively in OT than trying to REALLY score. Not that they wont try and all but you know they think about that. "Why try hard in OT when it would be a 50/50 shot to win, when we can take it to a shootout and have more like a 90/10 chance to win"
