    Lindgren says that he had to manage his emotions all season long. He also mentions that it's not because he was offered a 3-year contract that things will be handed to him.



    Spoke about how no one has any idea how disappointed he iswith how this season went where he only had 8 wins. Says he left it all on the ice and it's disappointing.

    The coach and the GM should be meeting with the media, as well. However, I need to step out to run some errands. I will be posting any quotes and tweets when I get back. :thumbu:

    I'll take the lead ;)



    ''You need to be confident in what you can do. As a coach, you need to be. I did not have an easy way as a player. I had pressure at a young age since I had to put food on the table for my kids.''



    McCarron need to work on his speed and explosion this summer. He needs to make a statement next camp.



    Lefebvre blames the call-ups, injuries and character for the difficult season.

    Lefebvre is happy to work close to his family. Wants to come back next year. He's happy to be the Rocket HC.



    Carrière happy of the work behind the bench, says the call-ups did well in the NHL.



    Due to call-ups, we had 51 players there. We did the best we could. We have a positive future ahead.

    ****ing foxhole...

    Thanks @Treb.

    All I can say is that Carriere, Lefebvre, and the rest of the coaching staff need to be let go.

    He has 4 kids and had them relatively young. He had some of them in his early 20's so keeping getting contracts was very important for him since he had the pressure of 4 kids depending on him playing hockey.

    He was in the NHL at 22 years old, no way he has trouble feeding kids with an NHL salary.

    Voltigeurs and Ducharme are officially eliminated from the playoffs. So now that Ducharme's season is officially over, and so is Laval's. One would hope that the announcement of Lefebvre and his staff being fired and Ducharme replacing him is what's next.

    Laval had the league's top scorer and 3rd top scoring defenseman in Taormina and still finished last place.

    Well that's what he said. No idea what is salary was back then. Also, it's more about keeping the NHL salary (or employment at all) when you are a young NHL player.

    Maybe I missed it but is it due to travel that the Pacific division in the AHL has most of its teams play only 68 games? Seems weird for a pro league that they only play 68 while everyone else plays 77.

    Despite playing 8 less games, those Pacific teams still all at least had 14 more points than Laval lol.

    There are 8 teams in the Pacific Division, 6 of them play 68 games and 2 of them (Texas Stars & San Antonio Rampage) play 76 like the rest of the league.

    The 6 teams that play less are all located in California (except for Tucson, which is in Arizona). The other teams that play 68 games are the Ontario Reign (Kings), San Jose Barracuda (Sharks), San Diego Gulls (Ducks), Stockton Heat (Flames), and Bakersfield Condors (Oilers).

    This is the reason why the standings are always determined by winning percentage instead of points. This is also why the Rampage are last in their division, even though they are 3rd when you only count points. But because they played 8 more games than most teams in their division, their winning percentage is the lowest in the standings.

    It all started a few years ago when the NHL teams decided to bring their AHL affiliates closer. What they asked, with the backing of the NHL, was to have their farm teams to play less, travel less, rest more, and practice more. The AHL would either agree to that condition or the NHL was prepared to start another development league to accommodate the parent teams. The AHL agreed to those terms and for the last two seasons, 6 of the 30 (soon to be 31) teams play 68 games instead of 76.
