Re: July 1, 2014, (and beyond) trades, signings , rumours

Yes, I agree which is why I called Corrado a semi-blue chip prospect. Unless you can suggest another widely used grading system when discussing prospect potentials, I think blue, semi-blue and long shot are adequate terms. I think we can agree that Corrado is not a long shot right?. During the cons...

Re: Topper's Grilling Advice!

Iron chef competition, lemon secret ingredient.

A few things have crossed my mind including a scallop ceviche, but nothing with WOW factor that would showcase lemon. Ideas?

You guys obviously don't watch MMA. Those blows are called Russian Hammer Fists.

WHAT? Who better to protect the Sedins if Marc Staal goes after them?

Re: Waiver Wire

I'm glad people are starting to figure it out. If I wanted to see fighting from guys that don't know how to play hockey, I watch UFC (and I do). There is no place in the league for the George Parroses, Wade Brookbanks, Darcy Hordichuks, etc. It means little to me to watch 2 goons duke it out in an a...

Re: Trade Deadline Discussion

Please tell me that people are being sarcastic when considering Bernier. The guy was a total bust in this system a few years ago. He has hands of stone and can't skate in the new NHL. He's also just another "big guy" who won't use his size effectively.....much like Taylor Pyatt. "A bust in the syst...

Re: Trade Deadline Discussion

Agreed. And he is now making $0.525M and STILL only 26 years old. It's also just a one year contract, so if he has indeed regressed THAT much, we can let him go in the offseason. I'd like to see him here, but you would think Gillis would have signed him earlier when he was free on the street if ther...

Re: Trade Deadline Discussion

What ever happened to Steve Bernier after leaving here? I was one of the few defenders of his play. When you get past what we gave up (2nd/3rd), and the expectations for him becoming a top 6 power forward, he was a decent bottom 6 guy. Worked hard defensively, hit, and stuck up for teammates. When h...

Re: Farhan's $0.02: Dustin Byfuglien and the Vancouver Canu

As for tampa, I wonder what it would take to get Ohlund back? we know what he can do and I bet he would be pumped to play for a stanley cup with his home away from home.. the kharma sounds about right anyway :) I entertained the idea, but Ohlund's game was already going south when he left here.

Re: OOTS

Would Hamhuis be a good comparable for Bourdon's potential? Or was Bourdon more like Schenn? I don't remember much of the little I saw of Bourdon, I worked nights at the time. Neither. More offensive than Hamhuis and Schenn, but less responsible in his own end. Less "physical," but more likely to t...

Re: The BS Suspension Thread

Agreed Listercat. A classic "hip check" is essentially an ass check. Marchand makes this hit head first. End of story.

Did anyone watch the game through a Bruins feed? And I thought John Garrett was an embarrassing homer ...

Re: Henrik Sedin - best passer.... ever?

I feared I may have opened a can of worms with that comment. But since the snowball is already rolling, I might as well defend my stance. A few issues I have with the posts following mine. 1. Just because we haven't had many jerseys retired in 40 years does not mean the standards should be dropped t...

Re: Henrik Sedin - best passer.... ever?

if they keep up their current paces, our team continues to perform at the top of the league during the regular season, and advances deep into the playoffs, they will be more than deserving of jersey retirement. too bad our rafters are already tainted with 3 numbers that have no business being up the...

Re: Luongo/Hodgson/Raymond for Lecavlier/Hedman/Downie theor

oh dear, you guys just play right into his trap. RD can say whatever he wants now because there are no longer records of the days he said grabner would never score a goal in the NHL, hodgson's back and slow skating were going to yield him a bust, and raymond was too soft and perimeter to ever be a v...
