Ok first off I'll start by stating of course the main cause of this mess falls in GM MG lap.
Well, I've heard "Reports" from various media that he did turn down a couple of deals... and it continues to get referred to by the Media... but no actual hardline source or reply to that from Lou or GM MG. Anyways.... its a professional sport, hes getting paid big bucks to stop pucks, people are dying for way less in our Military and Fire Departments, Police, Paramedics etc.... so cry me a river. Grow up, its a buisness... there was no gun to your head when you signed the contract , 99% of the population would love to work for such money.
I keep hearing how Professional Lou has been through all of this...
"My contract sucks" - great comment - that sure helped our team.
Probably going to have a few other comments during this interview thats gonna hurt us as well...
This interview is not going to put this fiasco behind us... just added fuel to the fire that we continue to fight...
In this Goaltending Graveyard Market, I highly suggest that our next Keeper is a Mute.
Probably the last year for both GM and our Goalie.
What a mess.
1 - Poor refs! Gotta be the hardest sport to ref, although football has more players involved at the same time, they have more refs to make the call.
2 - I think that its the NHL's policy to have close games, look back at all the make up calls, and for the most part when a team gets ahead by a goal, generally the team that trails gets a powerplay. I think the NHL does this to make the game more exciting for the fans.
3 - I think we need an eye in the sky to clean up the game or have the refs call absolutely everything, and not let certain calls go for the flow of the game. If everything gets called, players will clean up their game in time. (I know that was sort of tried by the league - but they stopped for some reason.)
