In Topic: NHL 15

Im in the same boat...


Was waiting on gettng the Xbox one for when NHL came out but now with the removal of EASHL I guess I'll just be buying UFC or NBA 2k..


Its actually so frustrating, classic EA to remove the best game mode so they can likely advertise it next year as a grand return for marketing. Its not a surprise that the biggest money grab in HUT is going nowhere... 


Been getting this game on pre order since 06 and this will be the first year I bail out

I agree with the Smith comparisons. 


Del Zotto is better right now, but Smith has all the tools to become much better than him. Smith just needs to work on his mental game .


Its  true Smith would get snatched up quickly in free agency due to this potential. Most people feel Del Zotto reached his peak when he flew under the radar for his 40 point season.

3 and a half quinceys and a cleary.


He could go either way with the flyers, he skates really well and they need to potentially replace Timonen. 


Low risk signing id say, he still has that potential and he has stated that he wants to show the NHL that he can still play. I kind of see this becoming similar to the Raymond signing in Toronto last year.


I still have to wonder if he was offered a contract to play here... he brings some of what our defence desperately needs. ( Not exactly saying he'd be a good fit; but there is that chance )

Three pages for a race bomb to be dropped...not bad.


Its clear that his attitude isn't perfect but it's definitely blown out of proportion because he's in Montreal.

I agree with holmstrom. 


As soon as he left, our PP went from #1 to 20. Obviously this is in part to Lids + Raffi, but theres no doubt he played a huge part. We havn't been able to do anything net-front wise since he left.


Holmstrom created so many chances just by being there, frustrating goalies and tipping shots. So many ugly rebound goals or screened shots from the point went in because of him


You could also make the argument that our PP stinks because we can't take it into the zone, but thats another argument.
