Of course. Such a waste isn't it. Now he has to use all that energy on weights, instead of using it on the ice against opponents. Energy we could really use right now

I feel bad for Kaberle. You hear his last name and you think, "That's a quality d-man!" But then you hear his first name and you think, "Well, ****..."

He was solid for a couple years, just got really old overnight unfortunately.

No, I would be excited to have him if I were a coach....A young guy with a lot of potential to develop, kinda like Wallin was when Lavi took over Carolina.

After the lockout and then his team failed to make the playoffs, then fired, then sitting. Yeah, we bagged a real winner

Yeah, can't believe that his team wasn't successful his last year with Carolina. I mean, look at what that awesome roster is doing this year.

I'm surprised Laviolette is the best available coach right now...

Wow. Emery's save % is at 81% in his last 5 games. Tough to win like that.

While he hasn't been phenomenal there's been a lot of goals he couldn't really do anything about.

I know all about those. Those are the reason that you can't ask your goalie to stop more than ~92% of the shots he faces. That other eleven percent need to be stopped, particularly when one of the unstoppable ones gets by you.

thats providing that your stat is based on the fact the players infront of him are doing their jobs... but when you have a total breakdown from the guys infront of you, that " percentage" leeway goes out the window.

All that matters is the ring on his finger. He's name is on a Cup so he will always and forever be known as a winner.

And you seriously can't blame him for their lack of success afterwards when they were never a great team to begin with. They were one of the weakest teams to win the Cup. All the more impressive that he won with that bunch.

Ah, so Laviolette gets all the credit for the Cup win, but none of the credit for the team sucking thereafter... Sort of the reverse Stevens' treatment.
