    Wait, so Holmgrem spoke to the players in the second intermission and THAT was the result? Making themselves the complete joke of the league? Way to go! Can Holmgrem destroy this team any more?

    Paul Holgrem was probably paying extra cash to those who would fight

    A changing of the guard is in order for the Rangers and Flyers. Im sure it was nice getting Couterier, Schenn and Simmonds + all those picks, but their team still has lots of work to do and are not a cup ready team…. they seem to have taken a step back this year, since they wont be making the playoffs….

    hopefully holmgren lays off the trigger finger and just uses his pick at the draft wisely this year…
