In Topic: OT Changes

24 June 2015 - 02:58 PM

I don't know if I like this better. I liked the idea of 3 on 3 if it got rid of shootouts. I wasn't looking at it as a replacement for 4 on 4 OT.

4on4 > 3on3 > shootout

How much it reduces the shootouts will be the determining factor for me, I guess.

In Topic: 2015 Draft

Serious question, when was the last time Ken Holland moved up in the draft?

If this isn't enough to make you puke...




Dominic Turgeon?

Wow. That does seem like a bad deal for Montreal. Agree that it seems to make the possibility of Detroit signing Green or Franson less likely. Also, maybe makes Phaneuf's contact appear slightly more palatable...

In Topic: Retire Sergei Fedorovís Jersey Immediately

03 June 2015 - 11:09 AM

It's tough... but it seems that since Detroit has a good amount of numbers retired, that the standard for number retirement is much higher. If a player wants his number retired in Detroit, he can't provide a reason for it not to be...and Fedorov arguably did that by leaving when and how he did.

In Topic: The "enigmatic" Tomas Jurco: A Thread

02 June 2015 - 04:04 PM

Well, I'll post here anyway. I didn't really mean to be obnoxious. I admit that "completely worthless" was an exaggeration on my part (and I really meant it in reference to last year, not necessarily at present). And I agree that i am certainly being impatient with Jurco.

I really do think that Jurco's lack of scoring last year is why people are ready to give up on Jurco. And, higher expectations are why his output is so disappointing.

I meant to concede the discussion with a little sarcasm with my last post, but I can see how that could be interpreted as putting words in peoples' mouths. I apologize, though - did not foresee my posts as being received as they were.
