2015 NHL Golf Thread

Recommended Posts

And also missed the playoffs every other year since 2009-2010.

Lamerilleo was a very good GM at one point. But the league has moved on and he has not done well.

got anymore meaningless cliche's like "the league has moved on"?

He's something actually meaningful, the Devils circumstances have changed, new ownership hasn't been as helpful.

So...will the Devils finally wear an alternate jersey some time in the near future? :upside:

Haha, very good point. Or how about a completely new design for an alternate jersey?

NHL Golf Thread: off-season signings and news.

NHL Anti-Thread: expansion/relocation speculation and discussion. Occasional play-by-play of Glendale city council hearings.

To be precise, anti-threads are for chronicling the ignominy, failure, and scumminess of their respective leagues. It just so happens that all those words describe NHL expansion.

I would be worries as a Devils fan if Lou Lamerello made a right decision in the last decade, but as the Kovalcheck fiasco, nine million coaches, no decent draft picks, failing to sign Zach Parise and chasing Marty away show he has lost his fast ball. This has Leafs failure written all over it.

Ultimately, between Shanahan and Babcock (and Hunter and Dubas), Lou will have far less influence than most GMs. The Leafs seem content GMing by committee, so he's basically just another member of the panel. You all act as if he's been granted Brian Burke power.

I would offer up the list of the team's results, but I'm sure you can wiki as well as anyone else. I was wrong, I thought he was only 70, he's 72. Who gives a 72 a three year contract?

The one way I do see value in this hire is his connections and ins with the NHL old-boys network, which if he uses his time to introduce the younger executives might be worthwhile. But then again, the NHL pimp-slapped him pretty badly for the kovalchuk contract, so how much do they really like him?

I just wouldn't let him make any real decisions.

Holtby agrees to a 5 year deal with Washington. Could this be the season the Capitals finally break through?

He's just keeping the seat warm for Dubas. Everyone around Toronto knows that.

Shanahan has the Burke power, though Babcock won't be afraid to chime in.

Well, you've sold me. I see no way that having a bunch of type-A personalities making decisions by committee can possibly go wrong.

Their idea is to treat the Maple Leafs like Team Canada.

They've tried everything else for 47 years to no avail, might as well try something different.

Didn't think Bonino would be moved by the Canucks so soon. Perhaps with all the Kesler to Pens rumours, (prior to his trade) Sutter was the target Vancouver wanted? After last season too the Pens more willing to move him.
