    RE: Rinaldo

    He's an interesting situation. For the raw skill and scorer supporters he's of no consequence and barely gets mentioned as an accessory. Personally I'd like to see the guy get more ice...

    I wouldn't say that the last year under Lavi can be written off as a bad run. In that lockout season we looked scattered, undisciplined and genuinely disinterested in playing how Lavi wanted them to...

    While this might be a nice little 'feel good/puff' piece on Hexy and his philosophy, in reality you don't figure into GM of the Year status for being patient and not bringing young players up to...

    My concern with those line combinations becomes the left side. I still say it's way too early to bank on Akeson being a full time player at the NHL level, let alone a top 6 guy. There is a difference...

    I was really only just joking about it, but since you brought it up.........I would take this as a depth move to help out the Phantoms and a possible injury call up. If he just got signed this close...

    I can't imagine that Kimmo's status had anything to do with the Hartnell trade. I know they played together for a lot of years, but there's no way he ties that to whether he wants to play here or...

    So the conundrum of the article still remains the same. Yes, in a vacuum getting Couts and Read more offensive zone starts makes sense. But can that be truly possible? The law of averages dictates...

    I'm on board with this. Is Vinny the ideal player for us right now?....nah, probably not. But he can still score and he's not a stiff so we don't need to run him out of town.

    In order for Vinny to be here either the coach or the player is going to have to cave in a big way on what he believes. Berube spent most of last year pretty much showing the NHL that he was so sure...

    On the flip side I don't think you can really have one without the other. If you want that element of high energy, physical play then you have to sort of take some PIM's as a trade off. I think every...
