The Toronto Maple Leafs have named Lou Lamoriello their new General Manager.

Well that's a shocker! Lamoriello resigned from the New Jersey Devils after a 28 year run with the team as he was the face of the franchise. The Devils hired Ray Shero to replace Lamoriello as their GM in May and Lamoriello was to stay on as the team president but apparently his plans have changed. The Maple Leafs get a top GM who is highly regarded in NHL circles (and who has won three Stanley Cups as the man in charge of the Devils) as they continue to build from the top on down.

Lamoriello recent contracts:

 

Zajac (8YRS / $46M)

Volchenkov (6YRS / $25.5M)

Clowe (5YRS / $24.25M)

Ryder ( 2YRS / $7M)

Don't forget the Kovalchuk contract.

 

All that said Lou was great for the Devils but I'm not sad to see him go at this point. He's been out of touch the past few years (his decision to fire DeBoer when it's his fault for giving him hacks like Michael Ryder).

 

He'll fit right in on Toronto. :troll:

Yeah, I understand he will have to go through Babcock for everything. But if that's the case than what's the point? I feel like that could get combustible.

Caps re-signed Holtby, five year deal worth $30.5M, pretty good deal IMO so I'd say our primary objective for the offseason was completed, and apparently I missed the announcement that we'd signed Kuzy for 2 years at $6M total :Banana:

This doesn't mean a whole lot as the guy doesn't have that many followers and maybe the bulk of them are huge hockey fans. Nice to see regardless.

Didn't see that San Diego would be getting a AHL team this upcoming season. They are the Gulls & are an affiliate of the Ducks.

Patrick Kane is being investigated for rape.

I know, it's football season, but the Caps have a much higher chance of success than the Titans this year, so ...

Mack needs to bounce back if we wanna do anything.

I'm really excited to see Krieder this season. He had a great year last year and I'd expect him to have more playing time too.

I think MacKinnon will bounce back from his sophomore slump, but what I really want to see is Duchene take that next step into becoming an elite scorer. I feel like he has been an underachiever for a guy with his skill set.

Yeah, before this disappointing campaign Matty was real close to a point per game player the previous two years. So he was going in the right direction. Powerplay was 29th therefore we were 22nd in goals per game.

 

Duchene also has some of the most rotten luck I've ever seen. Hitting posts/bar or getting absolutely robbed by the goalie. Who else in the league makes better playmaking goals?
