It definitely looks like a toddler drew it with his foot.

They wore the cougar head in 1928-29.

Very, very cool.


In Topic: Inconsistency

23 November 2014 - 06:44 PM

This team has been consistently inconsistent for the last 3 years.  This is what they are.  As the OP said, we do have good offense, defense, goaltending, and special teams, and pretty much everyone is playing well (or at least not poorly).  But they are, simply, inconsistent.  A good chunk of the core is over-the-hill and another good chunk is young and inexperienced.  The players in the "prime age range" aren't key players, outside of Howard and Ericsson.  It is frustrating, but most nights they do play well and I expect they'll contend for a playoff spot again.  They just have to ride it out, not panic and make any stupid trades to "load up for a Cup run" (they don't have the core to do that) and risk mortgaging the future.


In Topic: Las Vegas rumored to get an expansion team

17 November 2014 - 05:07 PM

Aside from obvious reasons, I am against this because I don't want an expansion draft.  If there is an expansion draft, we will lost prospects to this adventure.

 

Prospects aren't eligible for selection in an expansion draft.  There are guidelines for who can be protected and what kind of players must be exposed (experience, positions, etc., and they have been different in every expansion).

 

 

 Wouldn't have the player agree to that first ? I mean they legally binded to a contract. Also I think the NHLPA would have more than a bit to say about that scenario :-)

 

Would who have to agree to what?  In expansion situations, the contract is transferred from one team to the other, just like in a trade.  And the PA will agree, it's 46 more jobs...
