In Topic: Sedins Sign 4 year $28 Million/piece extension

This is a dumb signing.

 

Daniel is worth MUCH more than Henrik.

 

Maybe I mean that the other way around...

 

They always sign the same contracts. It does not matter what the "worth" of either brother is. You either sign both to the same deal or you get none. Better question would be is the pair worth $14M per year.

Entertaining game to watch. But it feels like only the first line generates offense and the others mostly try to hold Boston off.


In Topic: Tomas Hertl

Anyway... about Adam's comments about Hertl...

 

The shot itself was crazy-good.  I have no problem with that.  He is right that if you do something that amazing when the score is that lopsided, and then celebrate like you scored the GWG with 3.2 left on the clock, people are going to get pissy.

 

I'm not saying that you shouldn't score fancy goals in lopsided games, but if you're a kid who comes in and does it, you're going to put more than a few people in the mindset of "That kid needs to be knocked down a peg or two".  It doesn't matter if that's the right reaction or not; it's the one that is going to happen.

 

Hertl's a kid.  He just did something that few people ever do.  Of course he was excited.  The question is whether this was the One Hot Game in his life or if it was a harbinger of things to come.

 

Is he going to be the Next Great One?  I doubt it, but stranger things have happened in life.  With all of the media attention he's getting now, he's going to need to keep a clear head so that he doesn't either get too big for his britches or get overwhelmed by it. 

 

As far as celebrating goes, hockey players already celebrate- there are big, smelly group hugs and the Line-o-fistbumps.  Sure a guy may get excited and jump in the air or crash the boards.  There's nothing wrong with that.  Just spare me from the NFL guys doing whatever it is that looks like drunken birds with lordosis trying to cross a busy highway.

 

For those reasons, I agree with Oates that McClellan did the right thing in reining him in after the 4th goal.

 

I do not recall anything special about his celebration. Given that he scored 4 goals in one game it was rather tame.

 

And Oates got OV on his team who likes to jump into the glass after his goals.
