Loved this quote from Pierre McGuire on @937theFan regarding critics of Tanev signing "I love the pundits--who I don't even know who these people are--that write stuff. I've been in the league 31 years. I wonder how many of these people saw Tanev play."

McGuire on the analytics nerds, "these people are really fouling up hockey. They really are."
Oh boy. Let’s give Holik another 10 million because **** analytics.

Are you of the belief that Holik had bad analytics?

Holik probably had fancy stats off the charts. He roughed up every other bottom 6 center in the league in his pre-Rangers days

Especially because New Jersey was a known under-counter of shots against...he was a +136 in his NJ prime...only Scott Stevens was better as a Devil in that time span (+237)

Thinking about what the powerplay could look like this year, who are the options to take Kessel’s spot? I assume we’d want a rh shot there. I’ve been trying to convince myself that Letang’s shot might actually be able to hit the net from there with Schultz taking over at the top of the umbrella.

I think Jake will get the nod at the position even though his shot is the opposite. Maybe Chucky depending if they want that guy to be the trigger...

Super Genius had this to say:

Kris Letang figures to take Kessel’s spot on the left half-wall, which reduces play-making from that spot but helps with zone entry and cuts down significantly on short-handed opportunities allowed. Justin Schultz goes up top.

Two months till we practice the power play...

Which doesn't disagree with the quote...but there's a lot of time before tactics...

I wore #3 and #13 playing soccer my entire life, so I see no issues there.
Always loved #13. Also #22 because Richie Zisk was rad.

Yeah, I got a note this morning that the team that missed out of Ben Chairot was kicking tires on JMFJ...it's a western team, but I don't have a sense of how far down the road it is...

The Kings probably could use a LD...I don't know if there's a money issue, if we had to take back Trevor Lewis or something, I'd do it...

Johnson and Simon for Lewis, that works for me...
Johnson and our 3rd for LA's 4th...that's fine too...

Tanev-Lewis-Rust is a forecheck buzzsaw...

Alex Trebek: “The most uninteresting player in the NHL.”

meow, furiously hammering the signaling device: “Who is Trevor Lewis?”

Alex Trebek: “Correct”
