I can’t be the only one that thinks $9.2 million a year is way too much for Backstrom?

I think that is the clear sign they will be moving on from Holtby after this season........

Gerard Gallant fired by the Knights and replaced by Pete Deboer. Panic time is starting to set in among the under performing teams.

It's too much for Backstrom 33yo-37yo.

Can't ever remember two HC's fired in-season and then hired by other teams in the same season.

Don't think any team will touch Babcock for a while, but Lavy was rumored almost instantly after being fired to be a prime candidate in Seattle. I don't think he'll be unemployed that long unless he wants the time off. Here's a great Lavy moment ......Leino no-sells it, doesn't later claim to have a nervous breakdown or PTSD from it:

How does the pacific have 7 forwards and 2 defensemen while the Metro has 5 forward and 4 defensemen on their rosters? Who is picking these teams?

McDavid dethroned as the fastest skater. Barzal got him.

On a side note, didn't realize Kreider was as quick as he is. Pipe dream I know, but would love him on the Pens roster.

Are we always going to see Metro vs Atlantic and Pacific vs Central? Can we change it up and rotate each year to get some new matchups? Or let the winner of the skills comp pick their opponent which will be the first game?

This new target system is garbage. LED boxes behind plexiglass that don’t register half the time. Leave it to the NHL to creat a over complicated fix to a problem that didn’t exist.

Rule change suggestion, in OT allow the goalies to go wherever they want, trapezoid be damned. Test it in the next all star game. Or just do it. And then get rid of the rule all together.

Is PK Subban broken, or is he just not interested anymore?

'As they limped out to join Vlasic on the ice for a group photo, the P.A. announcer informed the crowd that Vlasic's teammates had gifted him a hydrofoil.

Sorry. A what?

According to the announcer, the gift is "a surfboard with a high-energy lithium-ion battery-powered board that extends below the board into the water."

Vlasic was more succinct when describing it after the loss.

"You can power it by itself," he said. "You don’t need a boat or a wave."

Alrighty then. If you're thinking that's a bit random of a gift, consider the fact that when fellow defenseman Brent Burns reached his 1,000th game last year, he was gifted a pair of pregnant antelopes. So ... yeah.'

Say what?? :lol:

Saw that Ben Street was sent down by the Devils and thought... was he Pen's property a while ago? Yes. Wheeling and WBS 2010-2012. He has played in the NHL for 5 different NHL teams over 7 stints (Cal, Col, Det, Ana, NJ). Over those 5 teams he has totaled only 3-6-9 in 59 games.

However, in the AHL (7 teams), 424 games where he is basically a 30g/70p guy. Including 26p in 32 last year and 33p in 33 so far this year.

Talk about not translating...

Duck fans a bit perplexed. The Ducks called up 2 D from San Diego and sent down a forward. This will leave SD short handed in their next game.
Yes, Gudbranson is out but they'll have 8 D with the 2 recalls.

Devils trade Andy Greene to NYI. Blake Coleman also may have been traded. He left the arena supposedly. Renaud Lavoie falsely reported he was traded to Colorado. The Devils have said he hasn't been traded to Colorado.

Rumor has it some radio host in Toronto says MLSE sources are saying a possible deal between Toronto and St. Louis is being discussed. Names mentioned are Andreas Johnsson, Timothy Liljegren, our 15thoa and Colton Parayko.
