After he was named head coach of Sochi, they just had their best finish in history.

Only 1 year of head coaching experience though.

Peter Laviolette should now be eligible in that list.

Nashville is 0-6-0 in their last 6 with notable 9-4 and 7-2 losses. They lost all games but one in November and are back to .500. Next two games: twice St. Louis. Good luck.

If I had seen the LA jersey by itself, I would have thought it was instantly the worst jersey I had seen since those abominable 1995 Blues jerseys.

Then I looked at the right image....holy *f-bomb*...

The Colorado one looks like someone clicked the wrong file when they sent it to be made like they accidently sent something being used as the early stage outline for a new jersey.

Why does the LA one have the movement lines making it look like it is going uphill? It is supposed to look like it is skiing? If so, it should be going the other way, right?

I am....confused by both of them. With a little work the LA one might be OK, but the Avs one is indefensible. Like Mooterus indefensible.

The LA jersey looks like something you would have seen in that Pro Beach Hockey league from 20 years ago.

Normally I don’t comment on jerseys because one person’s beauty isn’t every person’s beauty. But both of those jerseys are seriously challenged. Are they really real?

For all the crap Chiarelli gets (deservedly so), locking up Draisaitl was top-notch.

https://theathletic.com/1408776/2019/11/25/lebrun-how-leon-draisaitls-contract-has-gone-from-outlier-to-bargain-in-just-2-years/

Two years ago, Leon Draisaitl’s eight-year, $68-million contract was held up as an outlier by rival NHL clubs and as a benchmark by player agents.

Now those roles have reversed.

Imagine the teams lining up now to point out that the NHL’s leading scorer makes but $8.5-million a year at a time when some of the top young offensive talents in the league are racing up to double-digit salaries.

Funny how quickly that all changed. That’s what happens when you follow up a 50-goal season last year with a season so far that sees Draisaitl leading the league with 48 points (16-32) in 26 games, with superstar teammate Connor McDavid just behind at 47 points (18-29).

Draisaitl and McDavid are both currently on pace to challenge for the 150-point range which hasn’t been done since Mario Lemieux had 161 points in 1995-96. Nikita Kucherov’s 128 points last season is tops in the salary cap era (from 2005 to the present).


I don't think they keep up that pace, but even if they don't keep it all the way up, that's just insane.

https://www.tsn.ca/akim-aliu-speaks-publicly-on-allegations-against-calgary-flames-head-coach-bill-peters-1.1403974

As far as I'm concerned, if this is true, Peters should lose his job and be packed up and sent off to somewhere else, never to coach again.

Speaking publicly for the first time since he made the allegation on Twitter, the Nigerian-born Aliu said Peters made the remarks in the AHL’s Rockford Ice Hogs dressing room before a morning skate during the 2009-10 season while the 20-year-old Aliu controlled the team’s music.

“He walked in before a morning pre-game skate and said ‘Hey Akim, I’m sick of you playing that n----- s---,’ ” Aliu told TSN, with Peters, who was then the Ice Hogs head coach, referring to Aliu’s selection of hip-hop music. “He said ‘I’m sick of hearing this n-----s f------ other n-----s in the ass stuff.’

“He then walked out like nothing ever happened. You could hear a pin drop in the room, everything went dead silent. I just sat down in my stall, didn’t say a word.”

Two of Aliu’s Rockford teammates who were in the room at the time of the alleged incident, Simon Pepin and Peter MacArthur, independently corroborated Aliu’s account to TSN on Tuesday.

"I think everyone should be held accountable for their actions or words spoken," Pepin said.

Aliu said Rockford team captain Jake Dowell later confronted Peters about the incident in the coach’s office. Dowell could not immediately be reached for comment.
