Bobby R is fine with his deal: https://mynhltraderumors.com/quick-hits-marc-staal-bobby-ryan-and-roman-josi/2019/10/30/

“I think my contract is ok. Works for me. Everybody’s got an agent and they did their job. You can laugh about it all you want. Obviously, everything gets magnified because of it and I understand that. And have I lived up to it? At portions of the contract, yes and to other portions of the contract, absolutely not and I understand that. I’m not going to say it sucks.”

wouldn't be surprised by that at all!

i mean also...how surprised are we really? with their lack of leadership and they didnt do anything to address their goaltending -- biggest issue if you ask me. and they lost their captain to free agency...lost a good scorer, leadership diminished, and goaltending stayed the same.

ohhh but karlsson is healthy!...karlsson and burns are too similar of players that karlsson's impact is greatly diminished than if he were on another team. another burns is not what the sharks needed. sticking to what i said back when they traded for him...and now the signing cost them pavs who they actually need more than karlsson.

and honestly, sure they made the conference finals last playoffs -- 2 wins away from the finals against the eventual cup champions...but getting that far was a fluke. technically they were a first round exit team... what happened in that first round that got them the win was 5% them, 20% the knights collapsing, and 75% a bad call. ive said this a few times this past off-season...the sharks downfall right now is they think they are better than they are and wont admit otherwise.

...glad i havent been proven wrong yet lol

What does that say about the Ducks?

In the past five years the Sharks have had better playoff success.

From 2014-2015 to 2018-2019

Ducks: Conference Finals, First Round, Conference, First Round swept by the Sharks, Not Qualified.

Sharks: Not Qualified, SCF, First Round, Second Round, Conference Finals.

I personally like the Ducks player leadership. But the Sharks have had a better run of it the past few years.

And certainly, there's more to playoff success than on ice leadership but I think laughing at the Sharks for a perceived lack leadership is a bit dated.

You mean beyond Getz everyone sucks? Or even he can't pull his weight?

Interesting. I guess they’re send him a signal that he needs to keep it in his pants and deal with his anger issues off ice.

 
Wonder when they’ll do that with Wilson?

or Marchant with his shenanigans?

or the various divers in the league that make the refs and the game look like a joke?

I’m on Lucic’s side on this one, and boy I never thought I’d Say those words. If you go in after the whistle and swat the opposing teams goalie, you better expect to start shedding your gloves and take a  punch in the face like a big boy. The way he landed made this looks worse than it was. This new “soft” version of hockey gets on my nerves sometimes.

i feel you about protecting the goalie, and I even think sherwood probably kept his gloves down on purpose... but it's almost irrelevant what the circumstances were.  Lucic was more of a danger on the ice than the slash on the goalie was, and he needs to approach his fighting better or he'll likely cause lasting damage to an "unwilling" opponent.  no-one wants that to happen.

(except to Kempe)  

That I agree with 100 percent. Maybe I was more irritated about Sherwood’s unwillingness to answer for it, although he kind of did. One game would have been understandable.

Can someone please explain to me how Detroit can beat Vegas - they only had 19 shots on goal in the entire game.  They are struggling so bad but beat Vegas.  I don't remember the ducks winning more than one game.

And, Detroit scored twice in the 3rd to do it.  That never happens against the ducks...

mcjesus christ are Mcdavid/draisitle INSANE right now...it's almost just unfair...

although i think it just peaked...we'll see. but if they keep this up...leon will have 160 points...a number no one has gotten to since super Mario in 95/96...

so, likely they will cool down...but wow...forget they are the oilers and not the ducks and they are very fun to watch...

At the time Draisaitl singed his contract I thought he was slightly overpaid. I don't know what I was thinking.

Just watched Evander Kane hack the side of the head of an Edmonton defenseman, all while a lineman watched, no call, even as the Edmonton player sprawls on the ice in pain and barely skates to the bench.  

i don’t know what the refs are on. 

This kind of jit should be reviewable and refs punished. NHL is losing money when teams are losing because of injuries - people don't want to games and don't want to by NHl apparel and stuff when there's no guarantee a caveman can't hack your favorite player on the head or MMA him.

NHL: we must reduce enforcers and fighting to protect our image and our bottom line!

also the NHL: petty goon behaviours that are just as likely to injure someone and make our sport look like it's for barbarians? Keep em coming!

crazy.

This. But it's also crazy they're on a 5 game losing streak and that their goal differential is -8. That's something to be ashamed of with that kind of offense (even taking into account Marner is out). I guess Babcock must have lost the room otherwise firing him is a huge boneheaded move by dubas. Very curious to see how it pans out.

they've had ridiculous offense and even decent defense, on paper (and $$), that keeps losing to low teams, for at least 1..25 years... so, Babcock might be a great coach, but he doesn't seem to be able to coach the team he's been handed... and he's been handed some great athletes.  

i get the firing.  it seems a bit rushed, though, and we're all wondering who CAN coach the team if B can't.  even if firing B was the right decision, they're going to look like idiots if they don't replace him with something that results in more wins.

people seemed to be stoked about Keefe coming in. i think Babcock is a great coach. not sure what happened in toronto or if maybe he just doesn't have the voice for so many superstars? that team has a lot of young superstars...and anyone here ever dealt with the a bunch of young hotshots who think they are god's gift to the world and think they know whats best...hard to really get through to, i would assume lol

Babcock had veterans in anaheim and a very mature, veteran-heavy team in Detroit. i would still take him though...even after what i just said lol i don't think our young guys feel they are superstars would listen to him. especially if Getz was on board.

Paul Maclean over to Columbus for special teams...that's a great pick-up....would love to have him back......

Yeah he'd fix the powerplay right-a-way. Also that Beard-Stache.

im worried San Jose is gonna pick up Babcock...that would be a helluvan acquisition....and i think put them over the edge to be a top-team again.

but i could also see him going to Chicago or Calgary or Minnesota... as much as I would love to have him here...it doesn't make much sense since we just hired a new coach. i doubt it'll happen...but it would make me very happy lol

I remember saying I wouldn’t mind Ritchie knocking this guy into next week. Someone finally had enough of the clown diving all over the ice. Not condoning what Bortuzzo did here, just not surprised nor do I feel bad

With all the bad news about Babs, Peters, Crawford, etc. dominating the headlines, it’s nice to see good guy Bruce Boudreau coaching the hell out of the Wild right now. 8-0-3 over their last 11, and just beat Tampa in their own building.

I really miss the big red tomato. Good guy. Great coach.

So many coaches losing their jobs over questionable behaviour in the last couple of weeks it's almost surprising when one gets canned for actual hockey reasons (lol sharts)
