  1. That's a player I would've targeted and a price I would've paid.
  2. I enjoyed the "What are you gonna do?" and shove to David Backes while leaving the ice. Real tough guys aren't afraid of guys like that.
  3. Very subjective topic but everyone has their opinion, really just a matter of what people hold dear but I don't think there's an argument to be made against Patrick Marleau having his number retired. But there were different players who helped the team go from expansion to respectability and then from respectability to playoffs year in and year out. They're definitely a better team than they were 20 years ago but the next step is the biggest of them all. Hopefully we'll see it happen before Marleau's career is over.
  4. Agree. Wouldn't mind seeing Timor Meier doing what Tomas Hertl did last year as a F1.
  5. Though I'd want the New Jersey Devils to be eating part of that salary.
  6. I wouldn't hate it. Far from it but I definitely think defense is a bigger need. They can shuffle lines and some young guys they can plug in if needed. I don't know if you can say the same for the defense.
  7. He's never been there. I actually think he owns the record for it, most games played without appearing in a playoff game. Would be good insurance in case of injury. He's a defenseman. I feel pretty good about the forward group with the emergence of Timo Meier and Kevin Labanc. Losing Tommy Wingels and Matt Nieto hurts the depth but if that's the cost to bring a solid, veteran, two-way defenseman into the mix, I'll gladly take it. I've become increasingly pessimistic about Mirco Mueller or Nikolay Goldobin. I'd move them both if it mean loading up for another cup run. I honestly think this is the San Jose Sharks' year. It's all coming together for them. Martin Jones is a goalie you can win a cup with, I don't think there's any doubt about it. They just need him to be able to shoulder the load come playoff time. Brent Burns is at MVP level right now, he's a step ahead of every other defensemen in the league at this moment. David Schlemko has helped make a solid third pairing. They've gotten nice, unexpected, contributions from young guys like Kevin Labanc and Timo Meier. Seems like most teams that make a run end up getting young, unknown guys, to step up and perform that end up making a difference. They have assets they can move and what they need really shouldn't cost much.
  8. They should trade him and whatever for someone like Ron Hainsey at the deadline.
  9. That looked like the Atlanta Falcons defensive backfield.
  10. Randy Hahn loves bringing up the Joe Thornton trade on these national broadcasts.
  11. I was hoping to catch at least a good half period of this game before my own hockey game tonight but as usual NBC telecasts don't have a puck drop until 20 minutes after the listed start time. Ah well. I get tomorrow off, I'm not complaining.
  12. Aaron Dell gave the team a chance for two points in a game that had no business going to extra time. I'd hope coach reminds his team of that and we see a better game from the other five guys on the ice.
  13. Yup. Guess you can pencil in Guy Carbonneau as Montreal Canadiens coach in 2020.
  14. It is kind of nice that they swoop in and grab the recently fired coach of their most bitter rivals. That has to add some spice to the next meeting. Michel Therrien could go on to be the greatest coach of all time, but he'll always be #2 to Claude Julien.
