    What. The. ****???
    And to think some people in Buffalo were advocating that we get Babcock as our HC a few years ago.

    Brendan Lemieux killed Cody Glass.

    Took Glass 4 minutes to get off the ice.

    My guess is concussion.

    Re: NHL News and Notes Thread.

    The NHL just named Jack Eichel as their 3rd Star of the Week(for games played between Dec. 2nd-8th). Jack is on a 13-game point streak, and over last week he had 2 goals & 7 points in 4 games.

    Re: NHL News and Notes Thread.

    What's going on in Tampa?

    Why is that team so broken, Will they even make the playoffs after last seasons points record.

    How bad is it when you set the points record get bounced easily in the first round, Then miss the playoffs next season.

    Do they need therapy?

    Well, THIS is a shocker: The Dallas Stars have fired head coach Jim Montgomery due to what the team calls "unprofessional conduct". Rick Bowness is stepping in on an interim basis.

    Also: It won't be until February that we'll know the identity of the new team in Seattle.

    They do... a lot going on here, so bare with me....

    was a team built on a North South skill transition game that didn’t quite translate with the hyper focus of the playoffs.

    they added a Maroon to bring a physical presence, and it’s paying dividends... albeit on the 4h line.

    the whole team is paid... including the coach just prior to last year’s playoff collapse.

    Point isn’t healthy.

    Kuch has mailed it in. He didn’t train with Dmitry last off-season. His performance has suffered as a result. How do I know... I coach Dmitry’s and Brisebois’ kid along with Dmitry.

    Vasy is sucking. He got paid just short of Price money and is only .05 SV% above Hutton right now. Meanwhile, Ben Bishop is 4th @ SV% and 3rd @ GAA in the entire NHL. Not just that... he’s the best goaltender in the league at handling the puck. He’s a 3rd defenseman back there.

    most importantly... Cooper is a fraud. I’ve said it for years. The best coaches are loved and feared equally. He seems like a nice guy to have a Malbec with.

    bottomline... Brisebois, who I’ve met, is a fraud too. For some reason Vinik bought his French Canadian crap.

    id love to know what truly went down when Yzerman left.

    Tampa Bay is a fantastic place to be when you're a millionaire in your 20's.

    I can totally see those guy being distracted.

    Stevie Y was the rudder that steered that ship.

    Good news is Tampa is stacked with talent if they decide to go for a reboot.

    San Jose just fired head coach Peter DeBoer. Ex-Sabres D Bob Boughner will take over on an interim basis.

    I saw something like 5 coaches have been fired since Detroit's last win. Jesus
