I sure wish the league would change the draft rules. If they real suck it up, there is no way the Oilers should be picking in the top five. I understand the concept of the draft. However, there comes a point where the league should stop rewarding incomptence. #3 number ones in a row should be that point.
New rule I would like to see (If you pick in the top 5 for more then 3 years in row, the
4th year that team should be picking out of the top five no matter how they do.) At least for one year.
Damn right. The playoff series last season probably helped. That was a classic. I'm sure the Rangers fans would agree even though they came off worse in it.
Definitely helped. Surprised how much we were featured in that ad, Rags vs Devils pretty much dominated it. I think Pete and Torts sideline shouting match helped a lot. NBC seemed to love that stuff. Still love watching how dumbfounded Pierre is standing in the middle of that.
Are the Penguins and Caps even rivals anymore? I always saw it as a hyped up Ovi vs Sid thing, but isn't that long dead at this point? Figured if you want to get the Penguins in there makes more sense to do Penguins/Flyers.
