The Board of Governors meeting was held today, decisions made included:

-unanimously approving the relocation of the Thrashers to Winnipeg happy.gif

-boarding penalties would be called for hitting a defenseless player causing the player to hit the boards "violently or dangerously"

-a penalty will be called for hits to the head were the players head is targeted and the main point of impact


I think those are good rule changes, hopefully now we can avoid all of hits to the head that are far too common in todays game

I like the idea of picking up Jan Hejda. A defensive minded defenseman ready to contribute and an offensive defenseman through the draft.

Me likey! smile.gif

I don't think Savard is ever going to play anymore. At least he got to hoist the cup.

Marchand is going to get signed. No questions asked.

I wouldn't sign either of them. I don't want to see Ryder being lazy and I don't want to see Kaberle. Let the young bucks play. Replace Kaberle with Kampfer and Ryder with Caron. Both are capable of being good players. Give Seggy more responsibility since it's his second year.

Cap space? Re-sign the sherriff so he can mentor the little kids and sit in the press box.

Ryder will be back.

I could see them letting Kaberle go, though.

TB...i wouldnt be surprised if we keep both. wouldn't totally hate it either.

Solemate...not a bad idea. if you dump kaberle...get someone solid defensively like hejda...and then a murphy or beaulieu in the draft. they're both probably a year out at minimum, but kampfer can hold us over if need be

what do you guys think is harder to come across, a 1C or a 1D?

RNH has potential to be a 1C
Larsson has potential to be a 1D

im sure tambo will pick RNH, but man larsson is tempting

also, french, that news caught me by surprise as well. i would like him back and put back that smyth-horcoff-hemsky lineup, but i cant see it happening (unless youre gonna take souray laugh.gif)

fair enough. id rather draft a C than overpay for one in the FA market (not that richards would want to come here laugh.gif) to this day, i wish tambo acquired picks 1 AND 2 last year. wishful thinking though laugh.gif

anyways,

The New York Times is reporting the New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers will play at Citizens Bank Park in the next Winter Classic game.

The annual outdoor game will be played on Jan. 2, because Sunday, Jan. 1 is scheduled to be the final week of the NFL's regular season.

Citizens Bank Park is the home of the Philadelphia Phillies.

The newspaper reported the details of the game on its website on Tuesday.


there will be no outdoor game in canada next year too

I see Oilers drafting RNH, but I like Larsson way more than him. Maybe Oilers can drafted a G too?

We need to find some way to re-sign Bieksa. He has stated he will sign for less to stay with Vancity.

Also, someone needs to teach Daniel and Hendrik what "back-checking" is.

Minor tweaks. Hopefully we can build on the crushing heartbreak and deep depression that has set in in my heart. tired.gif

I think a 1D is more harder to come by nowadays. It's so hard to develop D-Men because of all the responsibilities the D-Man needs to do for his team to succeed.

People want to score goals. Not bring the puck up, pass it, get laid out and then backskate once the opposing side gets the puck. People could care less about the primary assist. Let alone, the secondary but defense has a place in my heart.

Being an elite defenseman isn't all about skill set. It's an art to play D.

"People" being the fans or the players? Either way, I definitely think a #1 Defenseman is harder to come by than a top line center. However, I think each position is tough to master in its own way.......I don't believe too much in saying ___ position is harder to play than ____ position. I started out as a D then moved to forward and whenever I go back to D I always find it a bit easier for some reason.

Speaking of Centers, hope the Leafs can land somebody that will compliment Phil, cause Bozak is complete garbage and is a 3rd line Center on any other teamsmiley: laugh

People = fans.

To me, there's nothing better then that first tape-to-tape breakout pass. Then, the sound of puck hitting the blade is music to my ears.
