    Gold medal game is January 5th, so shortly after that at most.

    They're doing the right thing with him. It's a great tournament and great experience for him to have.

    Hayes looks like hes a...
  2. Tampa under any circumstances is a bad match-up...

    Tampa under any circumstances is a bad match-up for the Rangers. And Bishop has their number. They haven't been good in any of their games Tampa, and in truth they're not really in any kind of form...
  3. And teams are really seeing the value of skill...

    And teams are really seeing the value of skill throughout. It makes coaches not only willing, but able to roll 4, which is essential, IMO. It hurt the Rangers in 11-12. Whether unable or simply...
  4. Im not sure there's a mindset of "Oh, we can turn...

    Im not sure there's a mindset of "Oh, we can turn it on." Too many vets and a veteran, high quality coach. I think its just a case of inconsistency, stemming from injuries and playing guys who...
  5. Clearly they havent come together yet. They...

    Clearly they havent come together yet. They haven't had they're full team together yet. They're still very much integrating new guys, a number of whom are rookies. Hank has been good, not great, and...
  6. That he did. But they did pay too much in the...

    That he did. But they did pay too much in the deal for St. Louis, but at least they got an extra 2nd rounder back.
  7. I think Sly, there are too many instances where...

    I think Sly, there are too many instances where Kreider hits guys that are prone, vulnerable, or defenseless. Or at the very least, he's right on the line of those things. You can't argue that there...
  8. I see them making every effort to retain Staal....

    I see them making every effort to retain Staal. Unless his demands are ridiculous/impossible to meet, I see them getting a deal done. If not, I think he gets dealt at the deadline, in which case,...
  9. Kreider needs to take a step back and really...

    Kreider needs to take a step back and really watch himself. There seem to be an increasing number of questionable hits and bad penalties he is taking at this point. He's lucky he didnt get whistled...
  10. To correct you Sly, RNH is in his 4th season. He...

    To correct you Sly, RNH is in his 4th season. He missed 20 games as a rookie, and year two was shortened due to lock out. so in those two seasons, he only played 102 total games.

    He's still under...
  11. He'd totally be worth looking into, but they're...

    He'd totally be worth looking into, but they're not moving him and he'd cost a kings ransom.

    The Oilers messed up. Haven't hired the right coach yet for those kids, and they've gotten very little...
  12. The problem they have is the kind of problem you...

    The problem they have is the kind of problem you want. Really, you can make a case for all these guys. They've all shown something, which is great. I know its only pre-season, but it looks like depth...
  13. I actually think Moore should be the # 3. I...

    I actually think Moore should be the # 3. I thought he really responded well last year in the instances where he was given more ice time. If they moved forward with that, Id be comfortable with it. ...
  14. They didn't get a single break vs LA. Granted,...

    They didn't get a single break vs LA. Granted, they had leads, and LA was just the better and more experienced team, IMO. But one or two breaks, and its a different series.
  15. I wholly agree with that, and realize its not...

    I wholly agree with that, and realize its not just tye games he misses, but additional ones to round into form. And any time a key player is hurt, someone needs to step up. Its their shallowest area,...
  16. Not good, but hardly devastating in any way. Its...

    Not good, but hardly devastating in any way. Its still September, they're a week into camp, and tye season doesn't start for 2 1/2 weeks. Worst case, he misses about a dozen games, give or take, as...
  17. Very true. He hasn't had one yet. He's due.

    Very true. He hasn't had one yet. He's due.
  18. 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...
  21. 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...
  22. 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...
  23. Even if he's not scoring, he's generating offense...

    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.
  24. 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...

    Though only 3 of those games have occurred in the last 5 seasons.
