  1. LA is not a high scoring team, that is not their style. They play a grinding, hard-nose defensive game which has won them 2 championships.
  2. Plans fall through. He also says you never know what tomorrow is going to bring. 
  3. [Signing] Jets re-sign Dustin Byfuglien

    Definitely not both, god no
  4. [Signing] Jets re-sign Dustin Byfuglien

    Possible but not common for a playoff team
  5. [Signing] Jets re-sign Dustin Byfuglien

    I don't think he is on the market as the Rangers are in playoff contention. They have a good chance coming out of that division. Plus he is a different type of player
  6. [Signing] Jets re-sign Dustin Byfuglien

    That is a big boy contract
  7. [Report] Drew Stafford suspended 1 game

    Didn't Kassian get 4 for something similar?
  8. Milan Lucic The Goof Ball

    Give it a break. Does he push the boundaries? Yes. Does he cross the line? Yes. But we need that type of player and toughness in our top 6. IF he wants to come home via UFA, I'll welcome him with opened arms as long as it's a reasonable contract.
  9. Decision Time Is Now or Is It Already Made? Ramblings.

    Perhaps you don't understand the market for defenseman at the trade deadline. He will be highly sought after if we made him available. Why would Eddie Lack's trade have anything to do with Hamhius? Even in a down year Vrbata is still very capable of putting the puck in the back of the net. If he had any years left on his contract, there would be a problem moving him but he is a pending UFA. A second rounder should be the baseline but that is determined by the market, not us.
  10. Decision Time Is Now or Is It Already Made? Ramblings.

    Obvious trade baits are Vrbata and Hamhius since they are both pending UFAs. Hamhius should be able to fetch us at least a first round pick As for Vrbata, his value definitely dropped this year. But he should get us at least a 2nd rounder. Another player I would like to see if there are any takers is Burrows. But I believe he has a full NTC. Maybe he would waive for the Ducks and join his buddies. I would eat a bit of cap if needed
  11. Jannik Hansen

    I think Hansen is a great guy to keep around. He is a hard worker, worked his way up and down the lineup for years and now he is having the best season of his career. Good role model for the kids, I would say. At 2.5 mill cap hit, great bargain.
  12. This is a tough one. Blues have been great in the regular season for years but they have nothing to show for in the playoffs. Might be a good time for leadership change?
  13. Horvat +/- stats

    It's not a great stat to judge a player. But when you're at -23, it's a bit more than just bad luck. He has been on the ice for 45 even strength goals against. That's almost 1 per game. But he has only been on the ice for 22 goals for even strength. At the end of the day, he is a young player who started to get more and tougher minutes. He struggled out of the gate but I certainly see him to be a solid 2 way center for years to come.
  14.   He is only an idiot if he doesn't try. And these are just rumors
