The best part is he is signed to Tampa for another seasonPerry has become the first player in NHL history to be on the losing team in 3 consecutive Stanley Cup Finals
Backstrom had hip surgery and is expected to be out all next season at a minimum. I think he probably played his last game.
I was under the impression that they were both good prospects?The goaltending situation is grim, either Vanecek or Samsonov or both have to go.
techno, what does your gut say about Malkin/Letang?
I was thinking the same, a good all-situation puck moving defenceman is far more valuable, while a forward is far more negligable, especially in their twilight years.
I truly have no idea why Cassidy was let go, dude took us to Stanley Cup contention since taking the position; and it's not like we just laid down in any of the post seasons we lost, I think only one final round ended in 5 games.
They were good prospects… At this point they look like career backups at best. They are both wildly inconsistent and often “Lose you games” kind of bad. The team typically wins in spite of them, very rarely have either stole a game and certainly not in the playoffs.
