Re: Trades and rumours (& fantasies) 2013-14

dbr you are on the money. Why give up a 30 goal guy for a 20 goal guy and another player who may or may not be what you need? Meds you make a point but you trade a top 6 or potential top 3 guy for depth help? The best GMs build the top and find the depth and bring it in. If you think the Jets are re...

Re: Trades and rumours (& fantasies) 2013-14

The problem with talking about rumours is it makes most people look fucking stupid. As the local Winnipeg boy here (transplant) Kane is the last guy the Jets will trade unless Chevy catches some one drinking hard during the Olympic break. Like Jim Lahey shithurricane drunk. For the Canucks to get Ka...

Re: Trades and rumours 2013-14

I like Blob's idea from a week or so ago in regards to Evander Kane. Can't remember the exact package he proposed, but it was something to the effect of Kassian, Tanev, and ??? (I can't remember......Hansen?). I'd do that in a heartbeat. Take Kane sure but do the Jets need Tanev? To take Kane Vanco...

Re: Canucks select Hunter Shinkaruk with the #24 pick.

Did not expect him to be around at 24. I thought he was a surefire top 20 pick so getting him at 24 is pretty damn solid. With Horvat and Gaunce's size, tenacity and two way play, the size of Kassian and Jensen, the Canucks needed a skilled forward like Shinkaruk. Difficult not to get excited about...

Re: GALLAGHER ARTICLE ON BULLIES

I've come to the realization that Gallagher may have been right more often than I thought he was wrong. I always hated his 'players first' way of thinking for years but the last few I have come to a true appreciation of his insight. Yeah I know, quit drinking, but I'm not. Whether he is the first to...

Re: Coaches canned

Not the guy who couldn't trade Luongo. Not the guy who flipped Grabner and a first for Ballard. Not the guy who decided to resign Mason Raymond, and retain Manny Malhotra. Not the guy who thought Derek Roy was the answer. Not the guy who let Erhoff go in favour of Edler. Not the guy who let Salo wa...

Re: Gills and Vigneault

The Hawks are getting great contributions in the playoffs from Saad - Drafted 2011 (2nd round) Shaw - Drafted 2011 (5th round) Kruger - Drafted 2009 Great year for the Blackhawks drafting in 2011, they drafted McNeill (mid first round) and Danault (late first round) and Clendening (2nd round) that ...

Re: Gills and Vigneault

The idea of a retool seems redundant to me as I think Gillis has tried that. He brought in Booth and shipped out Samuelsson. Let Ehrhoff go but got Garrison. Kept Lappy and Higgins but let Torres go. Whatever the reasons he made his attempt to improve the roster that got him to game 7 at SCF. Now it...

Re: Gills and Vigneault

Tant I can tell you that Winnipeg will sit on Pavelec- they made the rookie mistake of pre-paying for potential that may not ever have existed. There are too many Pavelec cheer leaders in the organization to give up on him after year 1 of that deal. If the goal is to improve the team and get the bes...

Re: Burke Sues for Defamation

The interesting part in all of this is that the rumour has so many incarnations. Who knows what is true and what isn't other than the people involved but in the end going after Aaron when there are a pile of douchebags all over the place tweeting nonsense and stupidity seems dumb. But it's not just ...

Re: Burke Sues for Defamation

I'd get a lawyer. Then I would counter sue . By nature your online image has been harmed. Burke could have erroneously accused you and now you are a outcast. Burke has to prove what you did harmed him in ways that are believable. It's a tough road.. You'd morgage your house to pay the legal fees & ...

Re: Burke Sues for Defamation

I'm a tad frustrated that I'm being named here. What I did was simply attempt to find out if there was any truth to the rumour I had read, there was no intent to spread the rumour from my standpoint. There was no malice on my part. When I found out that my post was in question and considered as def...
