I'd absolutely be on board too, but I can't imagine Buffalo doing it. They won't have to worry about the cap too much while tanking, and should they need it in the future, he can probably still be traded as his contract is frontloaded. And he could very well still turn it around, just look at Chars.

Leino and Ehrhoff have to be the prime candidates for buyouts on that team.

Don't think Ehrhoff gets bought out. Great defenseman, only reason Buffalo doesn't lose 500-0 every game.

It's not the first time he's done it. It's a very good move.

Nash had a similar move against Boston last year. I wouldn't have expected a guy like Parise to pull it off though.

It is one of those moves that you decide to do before you start to skate. Not impromptu.

Now, it looks nice, but so many goaltenders bite on a backhand fake... very few NHL players can lift a backhand quickly enough to score from that angle in a shootout... Kovalchuk was one of them, but I think goaltenders just go based on reflex, rather than intuition.

That's actually Parise's other go-to:





OK I'm done with the Parise love-fest.

Does anybody have a link to that amazing shootout goal Hugh Jessiman scored a couple of weeks back?

Parise is a fantastic shootout guy.

He is one of the few guys I would expect to pull that off.

Well I mean because during actual games he has little flash in his game.

I'd fall for that Parise move; how many times has he gone to backhand and roofed it? Crazy.

Shanahan, Patrik Sundstrom and John MacLean formed the second-best line in Devils’ history, eclipsed by only the mighty A Line of Jason Arnott between Patrik Elias and Petr Sykora

Mark Johnson was on that line. That line carried them to the 1988 playoffs and throughout that CF run. Shanahan was a 19-year-old rookie tweener then.

Larry covered the team then. I guess he forgot.

And in retrospect, the Broten-Muller-Verbeek line was better than the Arnott line in terms of production.

Brooks covered the Devils in 1996. Mark Everson covered the Rangers both started the rumor that Shanahan was offered for Dube, Brown, Sundstrom, cloutier and a No. 1, which was BS because Rutherford wanted Kovalev or NHL established players. Everson made up the BS prospect list because they were all Rangers first picks from 93-96 (Dube was their first pick after trading their 1st to Hartford for Verbeek - the 1st became JS Giguere)

The truth is that Smith had Savard rated much higher than any forward prospect and would have gladly parted with Brooks' made-up package for a prime Shanahan.

The fact that I read this then looked at your user name made me smile a little bit. And do hope he's okay though.

6-0 for home teams tonight. Jets tied the game late 4-4, playing OT to try and make it 7-0.

How is it that Joel Ward has more goals than anyone on our team (I think)? I thought he was a 3rd liner.

Cam Janssen as a forward has scored 2 goals in 3 games this year. Not bad. Why is it newsworthy? Because before this season he had 3 goals in 313 games, 2 goals is his career high. Why is this guy in the NHL? The league really loses credibility when it has guys that just can fight and can't play hockey.
