    Eric Stephens was being sarcastic. There's another draw for the #1 pick. He's just saying that teams like Hawks or Oilers can get #1 pick to show how dumb this lottery was.

    ...but but Jason Chimera and Chris Kelly...
  3. Eakins is letting them open up the ice. Not sure how much more open you want them to play. Eakins is letting a quasi-AHL lineup compete and not play defense first. With a lineup like this you cant expect them to play at the highest level every game. Most nights I see our young guys getting chances. The issue here is not Eakins's "leash" but moreso that our young guys aren't making the right plays when they have the chance. How many times to we see Jones take that extra touch before taking the shot? How many times do Lundestrom, Terry, or Steel pass up on a shot when they have the chance to shoot? How many point blank rebound chances do our young guys simply squander in the crease? We are made up of half a dozen guys that would still be in San Diego any other season. Just chalk this season up as inexperience. Give them a couple season and they'll be where they need to be. I think the confidence is there, and what's missing is just the additional experience at the NHL level allowing them to make the right plays at the right time.
  4. It's his 3rd suspension i believe. That was the major factor i'm guessing. Moreso than the fact that Ellis was hurt.
  5. Would that be considered a jerk move by the Jets GM? I am wondering if there is some unwritten rule for these types of signings and other GMs pouncing on the opportunity. Obviously Sbisa agreed to sign with the Ducks knowing that he will be sent to SD to help out the Gulls, and the fact he still has a home in OC makes the deal fair for both sides. Not sure how Sbisa feels now that he just got picked up by the Jets. At the end of the day, kudos for him if he does get into an NHL lineup regularly up there.
  6. I enjoy these european preseason games. Very nostalgic seeing the atmosphere in hockey games. I've lived in the States for over 20 years but I make sure to go to at least one hockey game whenever i visit family in Switzerland. Despite 5-7k fans, the crowd noise always seems much more amplified than the 17k here in the NHL. I'm not bashing crowd noise and be a euro-snob...please do not misconstrue this post. Just sharing how great it is to see it on NHL network.
  7. Would rather see a more tenacious Max Jones on that line than Ritchie.
  8. Yep I saw that right after I created this thread. Bummer. Would have loved seeing camp in the new facility.
  9. Oh man, I think it has been like 3 years since I've posted here. And I have always enjoyed the discussions here....I guess the last few years I have been just an observer of comments and replies. Anyways, anyone know the schedule for training camp? I assume there will be a higher interest this weekend bc of the new facility. Just want to see what time they expect to open sessions on Saturday. Making sure I don't show up too late once it's filled up.
  10. Was thinking the same when I heard it in pregame.
  11. Despite the chemistry the past week, I still would like to see Kesler with Silf and Palmieri. I think Palmieri plays a smarter game than Beleskey. I love what Matt brings to the table, but I think Pamieri has the better hockey sense that will allow consistent puck pressure down low. Beleskey is more of a banger and shooter, while Palmieri is better at holding the puck. Drop Beleskey with Thompson and Jackman/DSP to make that line a threat as well. Would like to see Cogs-Karlsson-Etem on one line too.
