Even though Del Zotto's play often makes me cringe, I'll always remember two incidents fondly: 1) him dropping Chris Neil "like a sack of potatoes" in the 2012 playoffs and 2) him throwin' a bow to the chops of James Neal, who was about to board him.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2QWQVm9J5DM

Agree that his cap hit is crazy. However we need goals--period--if we even want to get to the big games where "big goals" are scored.

A bad start was to be expected due to the Callahan and Hagelin injuries and the Stepan holdout. (Additionally, the reintroduction of a personal demon from Brassard's past is seeming dumber every day.) Unfortunately, the start this year might have an undue bearing on Hank's future with the team.
Re: Tortorella, I don't think he would have gotten us back to the ECF. He really got the most out of that '11-'12 team (a lot of good luck helped); however, he no longer had the same team and seemed to be unable to change his approach. Also, I don't think he should be associated with team toughness--last year's team had very little "fight."
In an ideal world, we shouldn't have to choose between team toughness and a little bit of offense. If you have the right players (and this is on Sather), you can have both.

@Herman_NYRBlog @gravey94 I'll admit that *NSYNC and Britney Spears were guilty pleasures of mine back in the late 90s (I'm 32 now). However, your analysis is a bit off. Lance wasn't a very good dancer--his main strength was that he could sing in a lower register. In my own rankings, I'd flip him and Joey F.

@Wallace1 @lennynyr @gravey94 Lucic gets that "feral" look on his face. Chris Neil gets it too.

@FREE LINDBERG @gravey94 Boucher was my first choice for assistant coach.

@Wallace1 @GLENsatherVSglennDANZIG Totally. And Russians are "enigmatic."
I was kind of hoping that the next assistant coach hired would be "a power play specialist," not "some guy that might screw up Brassard."
If Guy Boucher is willing to be an assistant coach for a year or two, I'd love him to come to NY and help the PP.

@Josh6 Tippett as HC and Boucher running the PP would be the perfect situation.

I don't really like Boston, but there would be one silver lining to them (or Los Angeles) winning the Cup. Specifically, it would show that you can win the Cup WITHOUT tanking for several years (like Pitt and Chicago) and stockpiling top-5 draft picks. Boston did got Seguin with that pick they got from the Leafs, but he is more of a complimentary player for them.
@Betweentheworlds I also said the Penguins would fall short once they substantially changed a lineup that was on a 15-game winning streak. But they were still as deep as ever (not really top-heavy). In fact, Jussi Jokinen (remember when burned us in that shootout loss?) wound up being a healthy scratch for them. a That's ridiculous amount of depth. It seems they just lost the chemistry they had during the regular season.
LOVE this video. It convinced me that my pic on here had to be related to #30.

@gravey94 @Josh6 He'll have to win multiple Cups to have a shot at passing Mess in terms of stature.

Anyone else think that Pascal Dupuis might be the "missing link" between man and ape?

Neal likes to take runs at players without the puck. What goes around comes around.
Love the relatively balanced ice time:
Only Asham was under 10 minutes (probably 'cause he had a couple of extended stays in the box).
11 months, 1 week ago on Rangers vs. Penguins (Game 36)
@tygalpin They often come on here to talk shit. Not tonight, though. :)
@tygalpin The Blues have three games in hand on the Blue Jackets and only need to make up a point. I think this joke is a little forced.

I'm not expecting them to hold Pacioretty accountable, but if they did it would restore some of my faith in this team.
