They waived of the icing because Dvorak was first to the imaginary line across the faceoff dots... new hybrid icing claim first victim!

Best tweet of the night by Ricky Mabe @RickyMabe "Backup goalie getting the shut out is like your mistress babysitting your kids. Did a great job but still feels wrong."

It may not be fair but after the circus year in Montreal this year do they really want a new GM in the headlines for all the non-hockey related reasons. It very well could cost Damphousse the job.. http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/2011/11/29/damphousse_trial/

Or what would the PK look like without a great goalie?

Well lets have a look at these in term of what I think an average GM would have done in the same situation. 1. EVERY GM would have made the same move. A great 6 months doesn't trump the pedigree that Price has, winning at the Junior and AHL level. Did he get enough? Only time will tell and of course we have no idea what other offers, if any were out there. I have this on as a push 2. Agree completely but of course if you follow you line of thinking how in the world do you do number 8. Push 3. Kinda at the mercy of the medical professionals Push 4. Great signing. BIG win 5. Here's where you selective logic comes to light. If you are going to give PG credit for this then he needs the blame for Scot Gomez. Bob was GM when Emelin was drafted. So if PG gets credit for helping with the draft then he gets the blame for helping with Gomez. Push 6. Diaz,is a serviceable D man but does cut it on a contender. Push 7. Hey I LOVE Georges but 6 years is too long for a physical and fearless player. I don't hate this deal but very few 6 year deals work out. Wait and see. Push with maybe a big Win 8. Completely undid any good from #2. Big Fail 9. If you are going to move an asset like this you don't rush and you have to shop him around. What do you'd think he fetch as the deadline approaches? No! PG had to make a point, speak out and you are gone (are you listening PK, JG et al.) Big Fail 10. HUGE WIN for PG. Love this deal. Big Win 11. Only makes sense if you have a go to guy. Clearly (since they've apologized for hiring him) they didn't. Love him or hate him JM should only have been let go with a plan. Fail 12. Fail. It's not a who cares issue, it was noticed by the players and hurt moral. 13. Another wiff... Fail By my assessment a competent GM would have done two major things better 1. Had a plan an stuck to it, no panic moves. 2. Maximize the assets, I can't see one example outside of the Gill trade where he has done that... Of course nothing you and I think matters but it is fun to pretend it does.. :)

because they took it to mean I want out where Cammy meant it as we need to play better.... Read Sean Gordon article... or read the Gagnon article, french in not my mother tongue but does Cammy actually call his teammates losers? I don't see it. People need to go to the source not a paraphrase from someone with an agenda...
