Yeah, probably not. Nothing a good heavy spin won't obscure. Only a drastic decline in STH will spark any sort of change.
I dunno. Maybe you are right. I think Ted is starting to feel some pressure as the media et al are certainly focusing on the disparities of the program. He cant hide behind the Wizards either, so.....pressure is mounting, IMO.
GMGM is in trouble. I think he knows it. Lets see what transpires. Ted will of course publicly back the man, but if we miss the playoffs, I cant see how either George and Dale stay with the program.
Ted will hire a new GM....new GM will hire a new coach....new coach will want new players.
Say good bye to Semin, Wideman, Knuble, Schultz, Ward, Hamrlik....and possibly Laich, MaJo, etc.
New focus, for sure.
i have to believe that, at this point, even making the playoffs wont ensure makfi is "safe". teddy has been witness to multiple post season collapses and atrocities, of the "generational team" makfi has built, another crash and burn cannot go unnoticed.
imo, in order for makfi to get off the hot seat they have to make the playoffs, win at least one round ( somewhat convincingly ), then either win the 2nd round, or go down fighting to the end.
Hockey insider rumor on twitter .......I know I know.....but here it is anyway,
Neuvy, Carlson Caps 1st and Avs 2nd for Nash....
Aside from the obvious cap space...does anyone pull the trigger on this?
I think I would
Unless Rick Nash can play Center and get a new contract that's dumb and also i don't think we have the Avs 2nd so that's also dumb and how could you possibly think that would be enough for Nash and why would you want Nash on this team when we don't need a left wing and also Parise is UFA and better...seriously?
