In other words, Dan Bylsma and Marc Andre Fleury are regular season juggernauts. Crosby and Malkin will fill the arena. People will still buy into it regardless if we have astronomical failures in the playoffs. Money will be made. All is well. If we win a cup in the process, cool.

Dump Adams, Dupuis, and maybe even Cooke as well. Let some younger guys fill those roles.

Trade Nisky for a winger.

Let Doumoulin, Maatta, Harington, Pouliot, and Bortuzzo battle it out in training camp and have the best two guys round out your bottom pairing.

2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
1 small carrot or 1/2 large carrot, finely chopped
1 small stalk of celery, including the green tops, finely chopped
2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon dried basil or 2 Tbsp chopped fresh basil
1 28 oz. can whole tomatoes, including the juice, or 1 3/4 pound of fresh tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and chopped
1 teaspoon tomato paste
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Heat olive oil in a large wide skillet on medium heat. Add the chopped onion, carrot, celery and parsley. Stir to coat. Reduce the heat to low, cover the skillet and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally until the vegetables are softened and cooked through.

Remove cover and add the minced garlic. Increase the heat to medium high. Cook for garlic for 30 seconds. Add the tomatoes, including the juice and shredding them with your fingers if you are using canned whole tomatoes. Add the tomato paste and the basil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a low simmer, reduce the heat to low and cook, uncovered until thickened, about 15 minutes. If you want you can push the sauce through a food mill, or blend it with an immersion blender, to give it a smooth consistency.

This is Shero's exact quote:

“I’m trying to make sure we’re a team that our city is proud of, an entertaining hockey team that can compete for the Stanley Cup and put ourselves in that position every year,” Shero said. “That’s our goal moving forward.”


I don't care if you hate everything the guy's ever done, but don't resort to making up quotes or statements to support you ideas.

The goal of a sports team should be to be entertaining. They aren't curing cancer. This is a game that people watch because it is entertaining.

There was nothing wrong with what he said. If anything, it was a shot at the trapping dingleberries that just try to win, even if it means a brand of hockey that resembles activity time at the senior center. Trap hockey isn't fun...no matter the outcome. Its crap

You mad?

A team entering game 1 of the first round is a team that "can compete for the Stanley Cup", yes? You're being the kind of over dramatic you're accusing me of being.

Also, Where did I quote him? Better yet, don't even respond, go lick your Shero poster.

No it wasn't. He went corporate Ray and resorted to discussing how entertaining the team is and how they field a competitor in the aftermath of the most embarrassing playoff losses in franchise history. That says it all.

Furthermore, he signed the guy solely responsible for it to an extension. It's a country club people. I know that hurts your feelings because you have this image in your mind that Mario is the savior who only cares about wining but let's face it, that new 20 million dollar ski chalet in Quebec isn't going to pat for itself.

568ml pot double cream
250g tub mascarpone
75ml marsala
5 tbsp golden caster sugar
300ml strong coffee, made with 2 tbsp coffee granules and 300ml boiling water
175g pack sponge fingers
25g chunk dark chocolate
2 tsp cocoa powder

Put the cream, mascarpone, Marsala and sugar in a large bowl. Whisk until the cream and mascarpone have completely combined and have the consistency of thickly whipped cream.

Get your serving dish ready. Put the coffee into a shallow dish and dip in a few sponge fingers at a time, turning for a few secs until they are nicely soaked, but not soggy. Layer these into your dish until you have used half the biscuits, then spread over half of the creamy mixture. Using the coarse side of the grater, grate over most of the chocolate. Then repeat the layers (you should use up all the coffee), finishing with the creamy layer.

Cover and chill for a few hrs or overnight. This can now be kept in the fridge for up to 2 days. To serve, dust with cocoa powder and grate over the remainder of the chocolate.

wat. The easiest way to make money is to win...I'm not understanding your point here. Just because its a secondary goal of the franchise to play an exciting brand of hockey they can't win...?

There's more to his press conference. You are also leaving out part of my post where I say they will obviously make the playoffs.

You tell me, you're the one who's panties twisted up, set themselves a blaze, crawled up your snatch and blew back out as a result of a queef from the tension in your body after how high your blood pressure became when you read my assessment of Ray Shero's comment the other day.
