Addition by subtraction.

again proving how little you know.

White was very good last year.

I dont think Id go as far as to say the Devils are a shoe in to make the playoffs

They have a good enough roster to make it but not exactly good enough to be considered a sure thing. Only teams Im counting out right now are Winnipeg, Florida and Ottawa

yea, absolutely. the East is going to be crazy again but with all the movement its hard to say what teams are "shoe ins"

Is Elias going to move to center?

thats the plan, I would think. right now I'm thinking itll be something like:

Parise-Elias-Tedenby
Kovalchuk-Josefson-Palmieri
Henrique-Zubrus-Clarkson
Boulton-Steckel-Zharkov

Drury retires AFTER getting bought out by the Rangers.

Pretty disgraceful move.

Whoa wait, Drury actually retired?

Also, what's everyones thoughts on the new ideas at the Research & Development Camp? I like the clear sheet above the glass and the added green line behind the goal line. Hybrid icing should be implemented. Does anyone actually find the race for the puck exciting?

Also, the point system for OT needs to change. Never understood how a loss is a point in OT when its nothing in regulation.

So what you are saying is that you would turn down millions of dollars just to be a nice guy to the team that signed you to a contract and then essentially terminated it on you?

The only one new rule I absolutely hated was the no icing on a penalty kill.

I also didn't like the new idea of the penalty not expiring until it's fully completed, even if the PP scored a goal. It would be interesting however if they toyed with the idea that if you scored a goal shorthanded, that your penalized player returns to the ice.

Drury was grossly overpaid. And he played like shit. He deserved little of what he was paid the last couple years, and now squeezing out a little more is insult to injury.

He owes nothing to the rangers, who cares if he takes money from already rich owners?

I think any real hockey fan thinks no touch icing should be implemented. The race to beat out icing is just too dangerous
