From TSN:

 

The Pittsburgh Penguins are scheduled to talk to Marc Crawford and Ron Wilson about their head coaching vacancy, TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger reported on Tuesday.

 

 

Looks like the Penguins organization is intentionally trying to pizz off their fan base.




#2523833 Wings sign Tomas Nosek to 2 year entry level deal

Posted by VM1138 on 14 June 2014 - 12:12 PM

Who cares where a person was born? They sign the best available players. It could be none of the local boys were as good.


#2521515 Jaroslav Halak's negotiating rights traded to Islanders.

Unless the Isles somehow upgrade on D, Halak's numbers aren't going to be what they're expecting.

#2517649 What Happened to Nyquist?

Posted by Nev on 27 April 2014 - 02:34 PM

The Bruins' D gave him very little space and shut him down pretty well.  I think it had less to with him struggling effort-wise than it did having a lack of size and experience in the playoffs.  Not even the kid line was able to generate anything offensively.  It sucks to admit it, but Boston were just a superior team that was too big and firing on all cylinders. 

 

Pretty much this.  So much of his game is based on his speed, and he had no space to use it.  The Bruins are disciplined defensively, and at no point in the series where they chasing a game.

 

Its also I think that his style of play doesn't translate very well to the PP where you're stationary a lot.

 

I will say this though - if he'd been paired with a healthy Zetterberg things would have been very different for him.

Wouldn't these be better placed in the "Rumors" section?

#2473743 Jurco Called Up

Posted by RedWang on 17 January 2014 - 05:22 PM

Is that really our forward corps right now?  Wow, I didn't think it had gotten THAT bad...


Ohh...my dear friend...*laughs maniacally*...its much worse than you ever imagined.


#2443822 10/12 GDT: Flyers 2 at Red Wings 5

Posted by TheXym on 12 October 2013 - 08:25 PM

Can you imagine a PK pairing of Glendening and Helm?  That would be dangerous.


Even strength would be sick too. Though every time Glendenning is mentioned I feel an obligation to take a sip of my scotch.


#2433594 New enemies, whom do you fear the most?

Posted by Crymson on 20 August 2013 - 12:57 AM

As the Leafs handily proved last season, having goons and racking up the hits doesn't necessarily accomplish anything. And for goodness' sake, enough with the size thing. It has been mentioned repeatedly that Clarkson does not add size, being exactly the NHL average in that category. You seem to have this incorrect image of him as a Milan Lucic clone. Bolland is actually of below average size, so the addition of the two of them has not made the Leafs a bigger team. As for the supposed energy line you've made reference to, it isn't an energy line. The guys you've named as part of it are players who fight and who hit a lot, whose talents pretty much end there, and who, with their lack of defensive acumen, will get shown the proverbial door by any line with a modicum of offensive potency. Just how little Orr and McLaren bring to actual hockey gameplay is reflected in their ice time last season: an average of 6:23 and 5:09 of ice time per game, respectively, good for the bottom two spots on the team in that category.

 

As for the Bruins, the Wings have certainly had no problems with them in the recent past. More, the Bruins have become weaker with the subtractions of Horton and Ference, both of whom played an important role on that team over the past several seasons. As for Chara, good luck making him tired; he's one of the best-conditioned athletes in the NHL. And playing Datsyuk and Zetterberg against him will not exactly be a strategy, given that Julien will be matching him up against them anyway. Whatever the case, he's a very good defenseman but not a game changer.

 

I'm not sure why you would fear Steve MacIntyre. He has played all of 13 games over the past two seasons for the precise reason that he is worthless at the NHL level.

@DownGoesBrown: It's nice to see a Flyer's club destroyed by something other than goaltending.

Man I don't think there's anything worse then seeing Toews or Kane score a goal the reaction is always the same... just cocky pricks can't stand their faces..I guess watching them raise the cup will be worse.
