  1. Very true. He hasn't had one yet. He's due.

    Very true. He hasn't had one yet. He's due.
  2. Thanks Sly! And you mentioned Bowman- which...

    Thanks Sly!

    And you mentioned Bowman- which reminded me ov the 95-96 Wings. They won 62 games, had 131 points, and had 5 HOFers plus a HOF head coach. Yet they failed to even reach the finals let...

    I'd have loved to have JD run the team. But it wasn't in the cards.

    Slats is 71. He'll step aside soon enough.

    Issue with them rebuilding is organizational. The desire for playoff revenue and...

    Bottom line, every season there are 8-10 teams in the league that are good enough, roster-wise and talent-wise, to win the Cup.

    Actually winning it though requires not just that. Yes, you need...
  5. Can't disagree. It's not a great practice. But...

    Can't disagree. It's not a great practice. But they've picked up Nash and St. Louis in the 2 deals where they've dealt 1st rounders, so it's hard to imagine whomever they'd have picked turning out...
  6. You never like it when your team trades a 1st...

    You never like it when your team trades a 1st rounder, but it's actually a lot less of a risk than one might think. There was an article in the Hockey News around the deadline regarding 1st round...

    Even if he's not scoring, he's generating offense and creating chances. He has had the puck a lot, been around it when he hasn't, and been very visible.
  8. Agreed. I get Berube's logic on it, but is it a...

    Agreed. I get Berube's logic on it, but is it a great idea to ask your top line to completely break from their normal style of play in a playoff series? They're taking a big risk if they're in fact...
  9. Though only 3 of those games have occurred in the...

    Though only 3 of those games have occurred in the last 5 seasons.
  10. Emery has very good career numbers versus the...

    Emery has very good career numbers versus the Rangers.
  11. Very hard to win in the postseason w/o really...

    Very hard to win in the postseason w/o really high quality goaltending, no matter what team you're talking about. I thought the Pens were the better team vs. you guys 2 years ago, but your...
  12. Special teams are always huge in a short series....

    Special teams are always huge in a short series. And it doesn't necessarily come down to how much you score or kill, but when. The key is getting the big kill or PP goal when you really need it.
  13. No, it isn't. But it's not over confidence. I'll...

    No, it isn't. But it's not over confidence. I'll admit that the Flyers are very good and capable of beating the Rangers. Their forward depth is excellent and Giroux is the best player amongst...
  14. It would be nice, and really helpful, if they can...

    It would be nice, and really helpful, if they can win this series without playing the full 7. Takes so much out of a team to go the distance.
  15. McDonagh will be fine. Supposedly could have...

    McDonagh will be fine. Supposedly could have played last night, but they elected to sit him.

    Kreider is another story. Still no timetable on him. He had the surgery on Friday the 28th, so he's...
  16. Mason is listed as day-to-day, but Berube is...

    Mason is listed as day-to-day, but Berube is saying he'll be fine and ready come Game 1.

    Actually not that surprising with how good they've been over the last 41.

    25-12-4 over that span, with 120 goals for, and only 85 goals against.
  18. With the way they've played Philly over the last...

    With the way they've played Philly over the last several seasons, it's a favorable matchup.

    Just worried about playing Tampa or Montreal down the road. Bishop and Price are both Ranger killers.
    ...
  19. St. Louis, despite his lack of production, is a...

    St. Louis, despite his lack of production, is a top-line, elite player. I would agree that Step, Brass, Richards, Hags, and Krieder are second liners, but I think Zucc might be a top-liner. As for...
  20. The injuries, etc were a factor. But the big...

    The injuries, etc were a factor. But the big factor was really the adjustment to the new system and how that played out particularly over those first 10 games.

    I've given the numbers before, but...
  21. Slumps are hard to predict and hard to explain....

    Slumps are hard to predict and hard to explain. They kind of just happen.

    But I don't think he's played poorly. He's had chances, been involved, and he's been around the puck. They're just not...
  22. Marty is a HOF'er and an all-time great, no...

    Marty is a HOF'er and an all-time great, no doubt.

    But put it all in perspective.

    Not even the best of his era. Roy and Hasek were both better and by a fair margin. And Belfour was just as...
  23. You can't predict cup runs and deep playoff runs...

    You can't predict cup runs and deep playoff runs though, with most teams. Often, it's the team that gets hot in the right places and the right times that wins.
  24. I thought they played great yesterday, didn't get...

    I thought they played great yesterday, didn't get a break, and Niemi played out of his mind. I'm not happy they've failed to gain more points over the past few games, but I do like a lot of what...

    3-4 weeks is the prognosis.

    Are they counting the time though from when he injured it or just from now?
