    As in how do their fans react? It'll be interesting. Especially once the NFL is there.

    And so it begins!



    This is a very scary person.

    On the 2018 Devils, there's no anger like this as a response to losing.

    It' more like, "when my next paycheck clears, I think I'll buy a new Ranger Rover, but fully loaded".

    Attendance would drop dramatically. Hate to say it, but.....

    I don't think that the arbitration thing and salary complaints bothered as player at all, as much as the fact that he seemed to already openly have one foot already out the door and was basically putting up a flag that he was a lame duck. To his credit, I don't think he played poorly or played like a guy on his way out that last season he was here the first time, but that might have rubbed people the wrong way.

    And it might have also had nothing to do with Madden's response in that interview.
    People have been saying this for over a year now. And it looked like they might be right to start this year, before their sudden surge and now they're in second place in their division.

    On the broadcast today, Holik ironically came up in conversation with Daneyko and Steve if you happened to catch it, and Daneyko had said he and Holik may have dropped the gloves a couple of times in practice over the years :laugh:. The conversation was something along the lines of Holik speaking what he felt often.

    Just looked up the Swedish Staypuff's stats on the season, 3.08 and .907. Yikes. Turns 37 soon.

    Never thought I'd say this, but I almost feel sorry for him now that his career is almost over. The King without a crown.

    One thing I dont feel sorry for? The Rangers. No way they can trade him as he has 2 seasons left with an $8.5M cap hit. Enjoy that.

    He had a good start to the season, but has been a nightmare over his last 10-12 starts.

    His play has been very bad on the eyes, as that save percentage has dropped.

    Colorado is screaming for someone to pass them at this point. They've lost 9 out of 10, but Anaheim has just lost 10 out of 10 and is doing whatever they can to stay behind Colorado.

    I have been following this since they first announced their intention to do it a while back, and I am really convinced that this will revolutionize advanced stats in the league. Especially the defensive side of the game, they will be able to track and record in real time how well players are in position.

    That's amazing!

    That absolutely could have been a HF proposal though, I've said is 1,000 times, the worst posts on HFBoards are "trade proposal" posts.

    I'd guess maybe only 25% of them make any sense, and that might be a bit high.
