    Seattle team is a GO for 2021

    If the NHL didn't have stupid division names then it might be possible. I miss the good old days of the Adams Division and the Prince of Wales Conference, but that's another discussion. I like Emeralds, but what's the logo? Some silly crystal? You want a bad-ass logo, you go with a Kraken. Give it emerald eyes, Minnesota Timberwolves style.

    Bruins Play by Play Announcers

    Nailed it. I love the NESN guys - their homerism is so over the top it’s funny. And did you guys see last night’s interview with Melanie Krug? That was hard-hitting stuff!

    Any Rangers fans out there that can explain WTF happened with Spooner this year?

    Rinne signs 2 years at 5 million per

    How does this affect Saros’ career path? Will it slow down his development? Is NSH envisioning a tandem situation for a couple of years while the youngster finds his feet? What happens if Rinne goes back to being lights-out? Do they still play the kid?

    NHL Point System Poll

    While we’re at it, disband the CHL (make college the only path to the pros) and expand to Helsinki, Stockholm, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Berlin, and Prague. A man can dream... But to get back on topic, I really am strongly in favour of bringing ties back.

    NHL Point System Poll

    That's how I like to see it. Of course, others may see it differently and that's fine too.

    NHL Point System Poll

    I like it - actually make it 10! That would give teams an incentive to win in regulation

    NHL Point System Poll

    I'm going with option 4 - eliminate the shootout, keep 3 on 3, bring back ties, and have two points for a win and one for a tie.
  9. Any thoughts? Is it too early in Tuch's career for this kind of money and term?

    I’d like to see fighting result in a game misconduct (as James suggested in the other thread), but like Ralph, I have to admit that this fight is a beauty. Well done, Jamie Benn. I love to see guys who can score drop the gloves. What if fighting were a match penalty, except if you’ve ever scored 40 goals in a season?

    NHL Marketing Wizards

    I love NCAA hockey but it's very seldom on TSN, Sportsnet, RDS, or TVA. Anyone know of a website where I can stream the games? Would have love to see Hughes vs. Hughes last night. Anyway, James raises a good point about the European games. They've certainly screwed up the standings with the disparities in games played. You'd the think teams that have only played two would have played last night to catch up.

    First Game of the Year - Let’s go Pens

    Ça sent la coupe! Ok not really but still - impressive performances by the Habs against Toronto and Pittsburgh, two of the better teams in the league. This Montreal team may not have much talent, but so far it is showing that it has speed and hustle. This is going to be a rough year but at least they’re competing out there.

    Marchand jumps Eller

    I think this discussion illustrates the difficulty of finding the right “place” for fighting in the game. Some people thought the NHL had done that by eliminating “staged” fights. But then you have situations like this one, where the question of whether Eller consented (either by taunting or trying to fight back) is certainly debatable. We’re never going to find the right place for fighting in the game and we’re never going to all agree in situations like this. I think that’s a very strong argument in favour of banning fighting altogether. I hate to say it, and I don’t want to open up a much larger can of worms here... but as much as I love old time hockey, I think this incident and the discussion around it show that it’s time to move on.

    kotkaniemi vs the 3 headed monster

    Anybody got a good recipe for crow? It’s always good to be cautious with expectations (remember Latendresse’s first preseason?) but I’m starting to believe in Kotka’s potential.

    Darnell Nurse - 2 years at 3.2 per

    Anyway, I had Nurse around $5 million as well, but today's reports suggest he wasn't even asking that much - he was looking for something in the 4M range.
