I think He chose BC b/c he's a Massachusetts's kid who gets a free year or 2 of college at BOSTON College. He gets a chance to win a national Championship, and hopefully develop into a NHL star in the process. (I don't think Less games had anything to do with the decision).

My friend coaches for Cape Breton (who had his rights)......he chose college because its less games. That's not opinion...

Just seems highly unlikely to me that CSKA is going to be nice and just let one of the top goalies in the KHL walk away to the NHL.

Watching this team play, I don't just believe they will be in the playoffs, I believe they'll have home ice.
- kindlyrick


Home ice would be great. Team may need Lou to make a move though.

I dunno man, I would have agreed in the first month. But, now, they're beating teams, not just winning games. I say let them go, until or unless injuries happen.

Wasn't he the first GM to get a player over from Russia to the NHL? Slava Fetisov maybe?

It would be nice to at least improve on Fili at 3C. I’m not giving up a lot for a UFA though.

He was committed to Harvard and was too stupid to get in (he failed the entry exams), so he had to pick a new school

too stupid to get into Harvard... the bar is set pretty high in this room. My guess in 99% of us in here are "too stupid" to get into Harvard (Unless your parents are politically involved).

I think this is pretty much the roster you'll see going forward. You know Fili will score a huge goal now that you mentioned his name....

Well that was kind of the joke

But I don't get the feeling that the entry exams for athletes are the same ones the kids who are there only for academics take.

It IS Opinion... It's your friend the Coach's opinion. He did not choose to go to college b/c it was "Less games". He chose College b/c it is college that would cost over 60k a year and he gets to attend FREE. Something that if hockey doesn't work out or after it does work out he will be 1/2 way to a degree.

For anyone to say a top pick in the NHL draft chose college b/c it's was less games is absurd. If by some miracle My kid is a top prospect in any sport and gets a couple of years of college free.. He is going .. b/c he is not Canadian and College is not friggin FREE in the U.S.

I'd be interested in trying to upgrade Fippula's spot at the deadline actually. Maybe someone like Pageau that is a playoff monster and can bring some offense. Fippula would be a hell of a 13th forward. Certainly better than paying $200 to go to a playoff game to see the Islanders drag around Ross Johnston's rotten corpse all night.

I do think this will be mostly the roster. I’ll be happy if Fili sets up MDC for some decent shots. Do not even waste time passing to Leo.

I hear ya.. .but It's still an IVY so I am guessing my SAT score would not have gotten me near the door.

Pretty sure I read recently that Harvard is being sued for being biased against Asian entrance to their school. Also pretty sure Wahlstrom isn't part of that class action....lol

Are you in favor of being the playoffs, trading half your team, and then not being in the playoffs?
- eichiefs9

If none of them sign extensions, I'd be listening to offers. Some of them can walk as UFAs, I don't really care (Eberle, Fili, & Spintackle). I doubt we'd be offered much for them anyway. If Lou can't get any of Lee, Nelson and Lehner to sign, and the trade offers are good, see ya. I'm really hoping they sign Lee, Nelson and Lehner. But if not?

Lose half the team at the trade deadline, or half at free agency?

I guess you feel we'll go deep in the playoffs, and Lee, Nelson and Lehner will sign with us?

Whatever you say...…..I can tell you that when Wahlstrom was drafted, that day, I got a text saying he was going to Boston because the schedule was easier. Free college is going to mean nothing to a kid who's making 5+ shmill a year. Trust me Cape Breton wanted him on their roster, and still do...….it aint happenin. You gotta realize also, playing for Cape Breton you're taking brutal bus rides, which he's now side stepped playin in boston.

Sidenote : unless you have your masters nowadays, having just a college degree is pretty much useless.

They are a bubble team and have been almost all season. Most likely they will continue to be a bubble team all year. This is not a cup year. If players won't sign then they need to be shopped.
