  4. Us. The Wild. We'll give Pittsburgh Jordan Greenway, a 2020 1st round pick, a 2021 2nd pick and a conditional 2022 3rd round pick. Then we'll sign him for a 7 year/$56m extension with a NMC/NTC. He will have fun joining the retirement core group with Suter, Koivu and Staal, playing golf in early April.
  5. The good point is: If the Lightning lose tonight, I will pass the 99% of my opponents in the bracket challenge (those who picked TB as Stanley Cup champs). The bad point is: Having picked the Flames as the Stanley Cup winner, I will join all these folks if the Avalanche kicks Calgary out...

  11. The first thing to do in the offseason is to kidnap Fenton, Leipold and all the scouting staff around the 30th of June and put them in a bunker with no possibility to have any contact in the outer world (cut electricity, cellphones, internet, etc.). Then, free them around the 10th of July when we are absolutely sure that all old overpaid UFA have been signed elsewhere. Finally, use the usual BS to justify this ("it was a Coup from the Russians", "It's the NSA", "North Korea was behind all that", "Neil Armstrong never walked on he Moon", blah blah blah.)

  13. That's a thing that drives me nutz! Honestly, I'm totally fine with losing if the guys give a 100% effort, young guys that are actually trying. Finishing the season like this is unacceptable, a real shame. For the last game, you want to finish well, playoffs or not. I watched the Habs' last game, and they really had a hard hit in the head when they failed to reach the postseason 24h before. But it didn't matter: they came strong, played Poehling who had a hatty and the SO winner in that game. Everybody gave the maximum in that game. As far as I loathe the Habs, I was jealous. They really managed to change the culture there and even if they didn't make it, they were all happy with this good ending because they all did the maximum. No cheaters. Another quick stories here (yeah, I love to dig them out these times): As I was still covering my team in a semi-final playoffs, we were leading 3-0 and as soon as we lost the game #4, everything collapsed. They tied the series 3-3 before going back at home to play the final game. We already knew that we would lose this one and I wrote the paper before the game. Of course, we lost it (at home in a packed and raucous arena), losing the series 4-3. Only One single player had the balls to say thanks to the fans, embarrassed and receiving beers and spits. I didn't need to change one single comma to the article and when I entered the team's restaurant like at midnight, some players were partying and joking. An absolute disgrace. Only the late Zarley Zalapski (who ended his career in Switzerland) was dramatically shocked. Only him. At that point, it is a whole culture that has to be changed. Like the Oilers are trying to do, unsuccessfully so far, for years and where the Wild is going through right now made me remind of that story because of the similarities. If this is true, Boudreau has to resign. No choice. It's called micromanagement and no coach should be tolerating that. I'm already afraid for the return... Let me guess: Zucker to the Isles for Andrew Ladd.
  14. I'm bumping this thread just to have the final comparison with those predictions as the regular season is now over: Pacific: Kings & Ducks were highly overrated, as well as the Oilers. Not that far for the Canucks and Coyotes. Flames was the surprise. But overall, that division was unexpectedly the worst of the league. Central: Almost bingo I would say (Both int terms of points and position). They just flipped the Jets with the Preds but that was really close (with STL too). Atlantic: Not that bad I would say. MTL did much better than expected and the Panthers was a half disappointment. Like expected, The Sens finished dead-last. Metro: Quite difficult. OK with WSH, PIT and CBJ, but the Isles, Devils, Hurricanes and Flyers were really far from the predictions.
