Give the guy a break. It was his shot from the point that led to the winning goal.

Yeah, not a fan. †Under pressure he coughs it up like crazy. †Not going to be a great tenure for him here unless that was just a blip in pre-season.

Harpur has been poor too. †A lot of poor decisions with the puck in high danger areas. †He was so good at first, hopefully he can put it all together.

Thatís not a blip in DeMeloís game. Thatís him. Very low IQ, and needs time to be effective. The only thing heís semi decent at is getting his shot and getting it through.

Apparently Boucher has said his forwards are set only let to make decisions on the D for opening night

I'm assuming, then, that we'll see the opening night's forward lineup tonight?

I know we wonít be amazing ourselves but I have no idea how Montreal would finish ahead of us. They have nothing.

Harpur is toast. Can't see him being a part of this team one-way contract or not

Both 67 and 2 were not very good. But Harpur looked afraid.

Amazing we got a shutout.

I agree that both Harpur and delmeo look poor. I'd send 67 back to the AHL and see if he can get back to basics. With 2, I think we're screwed.

Oh man, demelo only makes 900k, I thought he made 3 million for some reason. I'd have him as my 7th d man without hesitation. Maybe a 6, but that's stretching it imo

I thought they confirmed they have the forwards they want for the regular season and are only making decisions on D now?

Does that make White one of the extra forwards?

I still don't really understand why a team in a re-build has Pyatt under contract and waives Zack Smith.

No. Don't try to answer me. I wasn't being entirely truthful when I said I don't understand.

Like Iíve said before, that trade was simply about getting the cheapest rostered forward and defenceman combined with longest contract control. Those were the two players on San Jose and it had nothing to do with skills or lack thereof.

One of the reasons Gaborik was not bought out is that his salary helps them get to the floor and will be covered by insurance (or 80% of it will be). MacArthur's situation is the same. Wonder if they plug that hole in the next CBA. †If a player's salary can, effectively, not count toward the cap ceiling (when on LTIR), why would it count toward the floor? At the very least, remove the portion covered by insurance.

Otherwise you'll always have teams with money burying bad contracts in Arizona. Or, now, Ottawa.

Well, let's hope the prospects work out because they got two nothing roster players it appears
