Can we be like Latvia and just hire Ted Nolan?


Lombardi is a must, but overall it seems to me like we need to overthrow the idiocy of the old guard of hockey. Five countries made glaringly stupid roster decisions (Canada, USA, Czech Republic, Sweden, and Russia), though I suppose other countries are prone to making similar mistakes if they had a large pool of talent to select from. And we all saw just how stupid the decision making gets after that ESPN piece on how the American roster was picked. It's gotten to the point where I feel like these guys are basing their choices and quotes on how good a newspaper article will make them sound. The "right" players, not the "best" players. Burke is a great negotiator, and it helps him as a GM, but he's a piss poor judge of talent and loves hearing himself speak.


Case in point about Lombardi >>>>> Burke

Poile reminds those in attendance of a detailed report prepared by Lombardi looking at the bubble defensemen and specifically a case to be made for including Keith Yandle on the 25-man roster.

Glancing at the voluminous report, Burke quips, "Why don't we read the New Testament instead?"

...

"Yandle is clearly the only guy that I would consider for this team. I started this trying to figure out why the kid isn't basically amongst the top six," Lombardi says.

Because the central knock on Yandle is that he's not responsible enough defensively, Lombardi says he focused on situations in which this might be revealed in Yandle's game and how the same assessment might be applied to the other candidates.

There is no question, he says, that Yandle is the superior puck-mover and uses a combination of superior skating and passing ability to move the puck quickly up the rink.

He is the highest-scoring American defenseman over the past four years, Lombardi points out.

"Why are we discounting this kid?" he asks. If they use the theory espoused by some that inclusion should be based on current level of play and body of work, "This kid's right up there with Duncan Keith in terms of points over the past four years."

Lombardi's team played Yandle and the Coyotes in the Western Conference finals two years ago and has also played St. Louis the past two playoff years.

"If you ask our coaches," Lombardi says, "Yandle scares us more than Shattenkirk."

"He's not great defensively but he's not soft," Lombardi continues.

"If this kid was playing in New York, would we be embarrassed not to take him?" Lombardi asks rhetorically, a query he will repeat several times during the meeting.

"You guys, I totally respect," Lombardi adds, finishing his presentation. "There are some holes in his game, but can we afford to pass on the highest-scoring American in the last four years?"

There is some good-natured joshing of Lombardi for the report.

"I thought it was 'Gone With The Wind,'" Burke says.


Basically, "shut up nerd". Thanks Brian.

somebody missed the game on Sunday
:mkbét::lr: :lr:

OOOH yeah life goes on, long after the thrill of Vinny is gone

It's too bad all the people that could really run the Habs are busy doing talk radio, writing blogs or posting on message boards.

Now, Lajoie is an imbecile, a cretin and a plagiarist, who to use author Dany Laferrière's deliciously withering expression, "lives beyond his intellectual means."

...as serious as a poutine shortage in Chicoutimi during a curling bonspiel...

Seriously, Giroux, Subban scratched for TWO safe defenseman (one of which didn't even fucking play), Canada just had the depth to overcome full retard that Sweden couldn't.

Benching OEL for no good reason, to play fucking Oduya, Hjalmarsson, and Jonathan Ericsson, pretty much fucking defines full retard.

The USA should have had Yandle and Ryan, but they should have had the depth to overcome such a retard decision. Why they chose to play Orpik over Shattenkirk is beyond me.
