Re: Ok Lurkers... step into the light...

Now that I've been called out, I guess I have to say something. I'm on here reading almost every day through the season, and then a few times per month through the summer. I don't often have much to add to the conversation though. I haven't watched any of the world cup and I had zero excitement for ...

Re: OOTS: 2013-14

What the hell happened to Grabner? He had 2 goals in his first game this year, then not a single goal in the his 28 games since. He had 8 points in his first 7 games and then zero in the 22 games since. Also he has somehow not been a plus player (+/-) since the first 5 games of the season. Then ther...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

This could turn out VERY well for Kovalchuk financially, especially if he can go on to do something like score the gold medal winning goal. In Russia the story will be a player loving his country too much to just chase money in America. He'll be a Russian hero, no questioning his loyalty to his coun...

I love that trade.

According to capgeek he wasn't re-signed after his entry level contract, so is currently an unsigned UFA.

Re: Prospects Thread 2012-13

Thanks again this year Southern_Canuck. I never really post, but I've been following your prospects posts here and on the old board for years.

Thanks for saving us the time of trying to dig up info on all the random different sites, trying to track down how our prospects are doing.

Re: Shane Doan

The idea of $30mill over 4 years makes Jagr's 4.5mill 1 year deal seem like a steal.

I would have loved to have Jagr at 4.5mill

Re: GDT: R1:G5 LA @ Vancouver 5PM Sun Apr 22 HNIC CBC

You're right Nash did have a solid Olympic run on a line with Crosby and Iginla. He's not going to have those linemates here (or anywhere outside of Team Canada). He was also taken off that line and replaced with Staal though. I don't think I'd use an example of his prowess a 7 game window of olympi...

Re: GDT: R1:G5 LA @ Vancouver 5PM Sun Apr 22 HNIC CBC

-Schneider, Edler, and a pick for Rick Nash So you're trading Edler, a DEFENSE who is 2 years younger and had 49 points last year in 82 to games for Rick Nash, a forward who had 59 points in 82 games. Then I guess as a salary dump to make up the $4.55million in extra salary you just took on for tho...

Re: Kamloops very own Mark Recchi

I luv the Sedins too, but they were playing a bit like panzies in the finals. There were times when they were bumped a bit, then they were acting like they were shot trying to draw a penalty. 9wHRfuPCANM Ya that would be a good video example of the Sedins diving if you only watch the zoomed-in repl...

Re: Sedins to wear Volvo logos on their helmets

I don't mind the board ads at all because they move normally with the camera (aka they're actually on the boards). Those new ones behind the net on the glass seem to be "computer added" and don't move in sync with the camera which constantly draws my eye to the annoying thing that's moving weird wit...

Re: Toughness Poll - what do we need?

I think a gritty 2-way forward with some size, speed, and tenacity would be a great addition. I don't much care is said player can fight though. I'm also not sure if this is a "need" or a "want". After all we did beat 2 of the toughest western conference teams quite easily with a team very similar ...
