In Topic: "rebuilding mode..." What?

10 March 2011 - 04:45 PM

To me, saying that any team is "rebuilding" means that they are scrapping most of what they have and taking a new approach. I just don't see it for this team for a while. Even with the shifts in free agency on the defensive side of the puck that are a looming possibility in the next year, I still wouldn't call it "rebuilding." Maybe what bugs me the most is the frequency with which that term is tossed around in sports today. Obviously this guy is just looking to write something on the wings that can make it sound like they have a ***** in their armor (of course judging by the last 4 games, he could have simply said, "watch") but to talk "rebuilding," I just think it's quite an overstatement.

In Topic: Possible Deal With Atlanta?

I hate to say this but, the depth scoring of Hudler might be more important.

Agreed. Not to mention that if Hudler's depth scoring does show up over the next 20 games and into the playoffs, it would increase his value in the deal and make it more likely to see this sort of a trade in the off season. Plus, Atlanta is going to be in a storm of RFA and UFA in the off season, that may see them looking to mix some things up too. We shall see.

In Topic: Direct TV NHL Center ICE - Auto Renew

02 October 2010 - 08:33 AM

Just a heads up to anyone who was able to get NHL Center ICE for free last year from Direct TV due to their contract negotiation breakdown with Versus - Direct TV will automatically bill you for the package THIS YEAR unless you call them and cancel.

No need to incur unnecessary costs if you do not want the package this year.

Good to know, thanks for the heads up.
