I guess he wants the Flyers to use one of their amnesty buyouts on himself so he can go elsewhere and be a backup.

Why go somewhere and back-up when he could start for a third of the league?


Pffft!

I highly doubt a third of the teams in the NHL or maybe even a tenth would want that contract. It's a terrible contract with a lot of years and $$$$ left on it for a goaltender who is more known for being a space cadet than his performance on the ice. His playoff history is God-awful the past few years and why not try someone else who is a lot cheaper?

His point is if he gets amnestied, he'd be free to sign at whatever salary he chooses. Notwithstanding the disaster in Philly, I think he's still viewed as a starter for a third of the leagues teams as meow said.

Whoa, whoa, whoa, nobody said anything about another team taking his current contract on. If he is bought out (which I don't think happens) he will have 9 - 12 teams show interest to try and sign him to a non-idiotic Homer contract.

It's amazing, if Doc says something, I think it's interesting and am glad he has such in depth hockey knowledge. Pierre could say the same thing and I'd still yell at the tv for him to shut up.

St. Louis looks fantastic tonight.

Kings still very much in it on the road. Have to think if they pull out a win it would crush the blues

Wild doing a good job of taking away time and space on the Hawks and trying to limit their puck possession game they play very well, but it was at the expense of them getting much of anything on Crawford. The Towes-Hossa line vs. Parise's line is a real mismatch too.

I question WTH they were trying with a 3-man high PP in a 5-on-4? I was rather neutral on Mike Yeo when he was running the Pens' PP, but that was pretty ugly out there at the end of the period after the Wild got few chances the whole 2nd period.

Look at Theo Fleury and Modano's responses, they agree

They don't really have a net front guy. They do have a bunch of guys that can distribute well, so they run a higher umbrella. Their pp is pretty bad because they don't have any one that can bring it from a shooting standpoint.

Put any NBC network microphone in his hands and Pierre becomes awful. When he announces through a Canadian network? Pretty good. He doesn't dumb it down or try be a putz character.

7 Kings are listed as centers. Sutter is a complete stubborn dumbass to have so many guys playing out of their natural position.

Frankly, The Pens don't either.

The attempt of working high-to-low is really tough when u get 3 guys circling around the blueline and letting the Hawks play a pretty passive box which they like to do on the PK. The Wild are going to have to force it a little more than that, IMO. The Hawks can be challenged down low and around the net with their dmen and letting them skate around play passive D really benefits the hawks. That's a real skating team, not a physical team, especially their blueliners. Gotta push them a lot more.
