Cool! I get to pick Gordie Howe on Nikolai Khabibulin.@GameTimeArt
The best hockey player born on your birthday has to score on a penalty shot to save your life. The goalie he's facing is the starter of the Stanley Cup champs the year you graduated high school.
Stan Smyl on Tom Barrasso.......... No good hockey players on my Bday.. rofl
edit: wait i'm not that old.. it's not Tom Barrasso.. when did I graduate... it's goddamn Martin Brodeur... i'm dead.
I was about to say - James whathisnamedowski is already my least favourite part of the new game.
- cut them down a bit by teams pressed against the cap
THE GOOSE IS LOOSE IN JERSEY!
That’s a whole other can of worms.
I think Blackwood is the bigger and more important question. Can he be a starter on a competitive team?That’s a whole other can of worms.
To be fair to Schneider, the defense hasn’t never been particularly good in front of him.
But it’s no secret that Schneider’s been more hype than substance. Doesn’t help either that he’s had a tough time staying on the ice as of late. Would have loved to see Shero make a bigger play for a competent net minder but in light of that there’s been plenty of other moves this offseason that are worth consideration from Hall’s camp that the organization is at least serious about wanting to be competitive now and in the near future.
Unfortunately Cory is locked in for another three seasons with a no-trade clause. So it’s not like he’s going to be moved any time soon, and his $6 million cap hit per season isn’t something you’d want relegated to a backup goaltender. I think really they gotta role with Schneider for this season and then reevaluate what they want to do in the final two years of his deal. There’s going to be some decent names out there in the free agent market in 2020-2021, so if they wanted to try and make something work then they’d be in a slightly better situation than they are now.
