It's offseason with no games being played and no real chances to show improvement with your team. Bound to be more negativity than positivity.

Except, here on this board, it's going to be going on for the next two years most likely.

There's nothing wrong with sharing an opinion. Granted, none of us meet the qualifications for an NHL level management job, we all have our own ideas about how an NHL team should be built.

I, for one, believe in waiting for the next gretzkid to appear and tanking hard for several years to secure him. A lockout would help with finances.

It's nice to have such a large group of experts in one place.
Yep. Anyone with an opinion is an expert.

[QUOTE=glovesave_35;26631520]Feeding optimism is one thing, but at the risk of rehashing a past debate I still contend there is no reason to act like we're retarded, which I personally feel is what he/they are doing when they tell us that they feel like 2010-11 is Stanley Cup or bust.

Im fine with them saying that 2010-2011 is Stanley Cup or bust, that way, when we dont make it, we have an excuse to fire joe and mark.

You know, even with him letting go of Mo (my views on that are quite clear), the draft, and with the recent signings, I still have faith in him. As piqued said, at least he's gutsy. He's doing the things that he feels are right, and who knows, maybe they are, maybe they aren't. Time will tell.

Crawford being worse than Tippett isn't an "opinion." It's a FACT.

Based on what ...... your cute little grudge against the current management of the team.

I'm not a fan of either, but coaches are judged on results.

Tip amassed yet another first round playoff exit. Crow has a Stanley Cup. BTW, GM Joe is also a three time Stanley Cup winner.

I know some people think because they can mash keys and press submit that they're smarter than these people, but one day you'll wake up from Fantasyland.

With the most recent move and the upcoming trade deadline (cluster fu**), I figured I would get this thread warmed up again..

Quick question.. With the ownership situation as it is, is there anyone that CAN fire Joe?

Thanks to piqued for pointing this thread out to me by the way..

Still amazed that people don't wait to see how a trade plays out before they go off wanting someone fired. Dallas traded from a position of strength to get something they have needed for 3 years. Dallas has Benn who can instantly take Nealís place, and Dallas also ends up getting a good PMD that theyíve sorely needed.

Last year everyone was complaining about trading for Kari lehtonen and giving away Ivan vishnevskiy that trade has worked out pretty darn good. I really think the most recent trade will end up being just like the lehtonen trade a lot of people upset at first but then come around liking the trade as it ends up an obvious good trade.

I thought Goli looked good for his first game with the team and not having any experience playing with any of the players before. Once they all get familiar with each other I think heís going to be really good.

I understand people like to vent but I really think GM Joe is doing a real good job here. He got the team a number one goalie for basically a 4th round draft pick, he picked up an outspoken guy that has changed the quiet locker room and is also a decent pker in burish.

Just got the team the PMD the team has needed since Zubov left for Neal who has been replaced by Benn. I would think more people would be excited to see Benn play his natural position, one which I canít remember him ever playing in Dallas as a left wing.

You can make a point about his 1st round drafting but heís said that he leaves it up to the scouting staff.. Iíll admit the day of the draft I kept seeing fowler drop and was thinking thereís no way Dallas gets a chance to take him, then when Dallas was up I was like hell yeah Dallas drafts Fowler only to here Campbell.

I think Glennie will end up a 20 goal second line guy but not sure on Campbell just hope he doesnít become the next Al Montoya.

As far as the trade deadline goes though I wouldn't expect anything else to happen, unless it some minor trade for depth.

Meh...

He has turned it around and I'm glad. Still don't agree with all of his decisions but you can't deny what he did this offseason.

I'm now officially on this bandwagon. All the others moves have been good, imo, but this one is just bad.

1) He can't manage assets. I understand trading Ribeiro but we would have had double that return at the trade deadline. And after seeing the Staal trade, we should have at least had the 11th and Eakin. Forsberg and Eakin would have been a fantastic return.

2) He is building a team of third liners. We have 3 legitimate top 6 players left now. When you have dead weight in Morrow and Robidas, trading one of your top 6 guys that consistently put up points on an average offensive team is mind-boggling

I have decided to err on the side of Joe sucks ass at trading, I don't think Gainey is exactly the guy to help him in that respect.

I don't get what he is doing ... I'm not confident in Nieuwy or Gainey at all.

At the trade deadline you sure as hell don't trade Ribeiro because we still had a shot. Don't be so short-sighted.
