- Hockey should be a Head Coach and two or three teachers. It usta be that the guys in the American League could teach their coaches, let alone "the Bigs!" It may be in name only but I want our kids to be just like the golf pros with their "teacher" and confidant. The smartest thing Peter De Boer said upon being appointed New Jersey Head Coach..."Well, my teaching has improved, every year!" So our new teaching staff must have "Listen to status!" Trust me this is not a given in Major League Hockey.

- Winnipeg Jets logo, I like it, but they should have gone all the way with the old Air Force Roundel.

- Trust me, Number seventeen ain't comin' back, spend some money OFF Shore him!

- We are starting to look like the Habs, too many small top six forwards...and I don't care if somebody can put the puck in the net.

- Jarod Cowen is finally ready to show Ottawa (again) what a big "Meanie" is worth! We never truly appreciated was a Jacques Martin thing...

- Remember this game should really be called "Goalie" and I think we got one again.


  1. Nik:

    Agree with you about the coaching. Head coach is the guy who motivates, the assistants teach the game and smooth things out when a player and the head coach aren't seeing eye to eye.

    Teaching is crucial to coaching any sport, at any level.

    I personally don't care for the Jets logos - I've seen "amateur" logos that IMO are much better - update the old without totally throwing it out.

    They need to keep Kuba to make the cap floor- since this is a contract year for him, he should turn it around if he doesn't break something. He should be worth something at the trade deadline.

    Isn't it all about putting the puck in the net?

    We'll see just how physical Cowen is in the "Bigs" - be nice to see a Sens defenceman actually rubbing out the opponents on the boards!

    A-Team (Anderson and Auld) will carry the team- no sieves here! And if one of them goes down, someone will be hunting.

    #17 is bad medicine, a casualty of a long (decent) career, broken...he and his family have money, discard this guy!

  3. New Jets logos are awesome. The old ones look like crappy 80's airline logos.

    I'm just happy we have a puck-possession guy. I just don't think we have the right personnel to properly implement that game, but it looks like we're going in the right direction, just will take a while.
