  1. Empty seats in Hockeytown

    Whatever the explanation may be, it's a shame. I was being generous with my 75% assessment. Some rows had only a 3-4 people in them. As for the people staying on the concourse area explanation, I guess I'm just an old crank, but I can't believe people pay that kind of money to hang out in a glorified shopping mall instead of watching the game.
  2. Currently watching the Montreal @ Detroit game. Pretty surprised to see so many empty seats. Not sure how things look up in the nosebleeds, but the seats you see on tv look to me like they're only about 75% filled.
  3. Draft advice

    Oh. I thought hits. Yes that does make a difference
  4. Draft advice

    Too late to for the party. Those are fine picks. I might have wanted Trochek personally, but it's close and you obviously don't need help.
  5. Tavares&Duchene Chicken game?

    Yes, maybe a slight overpay but they get the best player. Actually looks like all teams involved should be happy with the return

    Galch with a pretty good game. Hoping he and Drouin can develop chemistry.
  7. Tavares&Duchene Chicken game?

    Duchene traded to Ottawa Turris to Nashville (6x6 extension) COL gets Girard, Kamenev, Bowers, Hammond, 1st, 2nd, 3rd

    That's too bad. I was excited to see him back. He's been through a lot and may need to take it a little slower and be in a familiar environment as a first step.

    The reason I'm not on board with the "Therrien messed him up theory" is that Galchenyuk was actually progressing well under his tutelage. If you just look at his points total, you'll see a constant progression from year to year, culminating with a 30 g and 56 pt season in 15-16. Before he got injured in 16-17, he was on pace to eclipse the previous year's total. But for whatever reason, he hasn't been the same since returning from that injury. And not only has he not improved after Therrien's firing, he's gotten worst. I don't know what's behind that, but I really don't believe it's Therrien. I also agree with management's assessment that he's better off on the wing. Relieves him of the extra defensive duties and let's him focus on what he should be excelling at.

    He started on the first line against LAK Oct. 18. He sucked and took two successive penalties in the first, leading to LAK's first goal. One shot on goal. He played again on the first line against ANA the next game. Habs got 50+ shots that night. Galchenyuk? 1 shot in 18 TOI. They are paying him 4.9M a year. Having him play on the 4th line is the worst possible outcome for them. They're not doing this because they're big bad meanies. Byron started the season on the 4th line even after scoring 20+ goals last season. He's worked his way back up to a top six role. If Byron can do it, so can Galchenyuk. Nothing would please Julien and Bergevin more. However they may feel about the individual, they understand that they have the most to gain in having him contribute to the success of their team.

    Does it? So. Galchenyuk underperformed under Therrien because Therrien is a terrible coach. Galchenyuk continues to underperform under Julien because Julien is a racist. Can't wait to find out what fault we'll find with his next coach to explain why he's still awful.

    I admitedly don't watch that many Edm games. I'd be curious to know how the Edm fans on here feel about his game. In any case, I'm pretty sure he's not a perpetual liability in his zone and a turnover machine, so there is that.

    They need a new GM They need that new GM to take the first flight to Kazan and start grovelling.

    I'm good with that. And gimme Kate Upton for my wife while you're at it.

    I may be massively undervaluing what Price can get you in a trade. I'll definitely concede that. It's hard to know what the artist formerly known as "best goalie in the world" on the biggest goalie contract in the world is worth. But I'll bet you a ham sandwich 31 out of 31 NHL GMs say RNH is a better hockey player than Galchenyuk.
