Love seeing the Sharks fail.

Hope Jumbo Joe and Marleau never win anything.

Why do we love to see the Sharks fail and don't have anything against the Kings?

I think this is a large part of it. Playing the Kings would build some animosity. Right now, I think the Kings are a class act. Put us against them in the conference finals and I think my tune would change quickly.

are they implying that Lundquist would not re-sign if Tortorella was back? I bet the media is sad about this

That was out of left field... At least Guy Boucher will have a new home. Coaching New York won't be as difficult an adjustment since the team is built around his style... Not to mention he'll have an actual goaltender in net.

Anyone thinks Torts will be Nill's first coaching hire?

That would be interesting to say the least.

Personality wise, that seems like the polar opposite of the rest of that Stars organization.

Hockey wise, it really could be a good fit. That Dallas roster could excel in a Torts hockey system.

It'll be interesting to see what type of coach Nill is looking for at this point. Grizzled veteran like Torts/Ruff? Inexperienced guy like Dallas Eakins could work out well.

I don't. Nill will hire a good coach.

I could see Lindy Ruff being Nill's number one choice...Although there is Vancouver too...

I'm just hoping Tippet signs with someone in the west. That guy always gets more out of his teams than he should, and I hate playing against that boring system of his.

I agree, I think Ruff gets hired in Dallas. Ruff was not bad at all in Buffalo, he just got tuned out by the players at the end.

I'd go after Eakins or Tippett, before Ruff.

Dallas Stars let assistant GM Frank Provenzano go. Had been in job for past seven seasons. Regime change continues.

Not good, have to think he has someone from Detroit lined up for that position.

I doubt he'd poach one of the higher ups in Detroit (Martin, McDonnell) considering Kenny just said they will be Nill's "replacements", I assume Fischer is key in that replacement as well.
Given those comments poaching a top guy would be a blind side stab in the back and I just can't see Nill doing that.

As long as he doesn't talk Hakan into crossing the pond I won't be upset. If he somehow got Andersson, the word Nill would be like a couple other four letter words for me, despite everything he has done for the Wings, that would be unforgivable.

He'd be dead to me if that happened.

I don't think it will though, I'm fairly confident that Kenny would have offered Hakan the job if he was open to crossing the pond for an assistant GM position. The fact that he isn't in Detroit makes me think he wants to stay in Europe.

Nill did hire from within for his director of hockey ops.

Hawks pull out another come from behind win. They looked pretty good in what I saw. I still think LA will win the series though.

I think we would have been able to take LA. We always play them tough. Tho losing Filppula woulda hurt. LA is a little over rated due to what they did last year havn't looked that great in these playoffs.
