Re: Coach AV returns next year? Yes or No

I haven't voted on this and doubt I will, but I will comment on the 'lost the room" scenario many are spouting. AV's style has been to develop a leadership core and leave much of the dressing room politics and motivation to that core. He and his coaches look after the style of play, on ice plays and...

Re: Off-Season Trade Thread - Needs/Wants

I wouldn't be surprised to see Burrows moved. Last year of a lowball contract, due for a hefty raise, numbers put up with the twins could bring healthy return.

Re: What will your second team be?

I myself picked Ottawa. It's a Canadian team with a Swedish captain; I like to think of it as East Vancouver. Bring the cup back to Canada! 8-) (And if things go well, I can continue with the "Oh ah Silfverberg, say oh ah Silfverberg!" chant that has been the theme of the SEL playoffs... :lol: ) Ot...

Re: Hossa Hit

I like the call the by Shanahan, some of the reasoning I don't get because I don't know the weighting he applies to various aspects.

It appears a lot of emphasis was on Raffi's history.

Re: It's getting warm

I would be loathe to lock in one scientific view and not allow it to be challenged. The Economist shares a similar view, and goes on to demonstrate the effects of such laws in other states. http://www.economist.com/node/21553060 DOES a bill that does nothing actually do something? This is not a Zen...

Where did I suggest he energized the powerplay?

Is English a 2nd or 3rd language here?

Re: GDT: Us @ LA: dhabums saves the season on CBC @ 7

Any regrets for turtleing on stumpy? Big time, he took me by surprise, I thought he was absolute bust material when he had that dreadful training camp, which we find out later was related to his back issues. I guess ol' Gary Roberts off-season training program fixed him up a little. Something tells...
