Re: MG Post Season Comments

I think you have to consider the organizational needs of the sabres as well when considering the timing of this deal and not waiting until the off season. At the time weren't they fighting for a playoff spot? Maybe they felt that Cody could be a difference maker for them late in the season and Kass...

Re: What will your second team be?

I will watch the next game for Ottawa and then tune in sporadically if they make it to the second round. That said, I've already contacted by service provider and my High Def will be shut off as of tomorrow. Just not worth the extra expense now that the Canucks are out. BTW HD hockey is free on CBC...

Re: It's all over!!

Wait Mantle... are you saying this "club" of "donator/regular posters" we're nothing more than a pack of "trolls"?? :look: Cuz if so.... well golly gee, that hurts my feelings. :( Hopefully this is nothing more than a simple misunderstanding.... No, there were some trolls there that were "protected...

Re: It's all over!!

Why am I not surprised? I wrote a critical but respectful post about how I thought the board could be improved by controlling the trolls but Chris sided with one of the most prominent ones because they were part of the club. Chris and the other regulars started jumping in bashing my comments because...

I thought about this but in the end I decided it makes more sense to just not use cap space in the first place, which is even more flexible. However this requires more discipline on the part of the GM.

Re: Vancouver Riots - Bruins duck bar tabs.

My reading of the article was that the bill was paid but Amstel wanted to know which individual ordered the Amstel Light.

Any consideration for making the forums more mobile browser friendly? It's not usable with one handed operation at the moment.

Re: Tommy Larscheid (70), hangs 'em up

Why have I read so much about people wanting BMo to do colour? What about him is so special? Are there any clips of him doing analyst work floating around?

Re: "The Call"

I wrote this email and tried to send it to HNIC but I couldn't figure out how. If anyone wants to reuse it and send it off, be my guest.

Re: What can we get for Cory Schneider?

I've been trying to think about other teams that might be interested in CS and it looks like Tampa Bay might not be happy with their situation in goal. Nittymaki is UFA after this year and his numbers aren't good. Their stud goalie Smith is UFA after next year and his numbers aren't the greatest eit...

I don't get this - how so?
He is saying the Sharks didn't think Erhoff was good enough to come back to haunt them.

I don't think it is fair to count White as a scouting "win" just because he turned into Erhoff. The Erhoff deal was a cap deal, not a hockey deal.

Kind of sad that Bure didn't make it to the ceremony with the other 1994 teammates, I wonder if it was logistical or personal?
