I thought Larry had been pretty much on the ball lately, but his last 2 articles are way off the mark.

Quote:

But the injury (Lindros) might well prompt the Blueshirts - who were considering doing so, anyway - to put in a claim for hard-edged winger Jason Wiemer
Why would a 3rd/4th line energy player be a replacement for Lindros, especially while Moore rots on the bench?

Quote:

Marc-Andre Fleury, the 18-year-old first overall selection in the June Entry Draft, will likely be sent back to his Cape Breton QMJHL team by Christmas. By doing so, the Penguins will save the $4 million in bonuses the netminder stands to earn were he to remain in Pittsburgh for the full season
How does Larry not know that, by playing in his 11th game with the Pens last night, they are now on the hook for his NHL contract?

I guess this quote from Sather now tells us that, in addition to not believing in match-ups at home, he no longer believes in line combinations.

Quote:

"All lines should be interchangeable; people should be able to move from line to line and be able to play against different people," he said. "If you're ever going to be able to match lines, the easiest way is to match people, not lines. Preferably, that's what I like to do."

I talked about that quote in the game thread. To me, that is one of the most damming things about Jackass. How on Earth do you sign Bobby effin' Holik and then NOT play him against the other teams top lines at every opportunity? Especially at home. It is clear that Jackass does not believe in changing on the fly. Only a cretin like him allows the opposing team to dictate the lines to him, while on the Rangers home ice.

As I understand it, while the penguins may already be on the hook for Fluery's salary this season as a result of his playing in last nights game, they would not have to pay him the for the lucrative bonuses (which it looks as though he will hit) that are built into the contract if they send him back to the minors at somepoint soon. As I sure you know, its not the base amount but the bonuses that usually drive rookie contracts up.

Wow....this guy is so nonchalant about his stupidity. How a coach/GM in today's NHL can make such an asinine comment is absolutely beyond me...I'm baffled. You'd think he just stepped out of some sort of time-warp. Has he not watched a single game in the NHL over the past decade? Line matching matters, set lines matter, DEFENSE matters, chemistry matters. I guess it's no wonder that no players on this team show any sort of chemistry...****he@d doesn't believe in it.

The day they send the kid back because of $$$$$ they should fold the team. Unless the kid falls apart (doubtful) he should continue to play for the Pens.

At this point he's the only interesteing thing about watching the Pens.
