Re: Offseason Wheelings and Dealings

You can't say that a marquis RFA doesn't control his own destiny. Proof is right there.

So it is. The draft coverage on TSN said it was 2012, the article on TSN says 2013.

Riberio to Washington for Eakin and a 2nd round pick.

2nd or 3rd round pick??
2nd round pick this year.

Not sure if he's worth more than a 2nd rounder or not...

Re: Draft 2012

I wonder if Ryan Murray is crying a little bit inside.....went #2 to a Russian, and he ends up in Columbus. Ouch. :P

Re: Draft 2012

Interesting to see what comes down the pipe in Edmonton now. Pajaarvi hasn't really shown he has the consistency for the NHL game.....so far. Eberle has been a pretty big piece of that young gun line in Edmonton. All the focus today is on a line of #1's. Hall - RNH - Yakupov. They still have no defe...

Re: 2012 NHL Awards

^^^^^^^^ Ray Bourque won 5 Norris trophies. Anyone who thinks Karlsson is the shits defensively doesn't watch many Ottawa games. He is no stud in his own end but he is no slouch either. He is a very smart player who has a good stick and his defensive coverage has improved leaps and bounds from his ...

Re: 2012 NHL Awards

Karlsson and Malkin winning those awards are embarrassing.

Malkin is a big player who is a pussy and throws cheap hits. Can't stand the guy.

Karlsson is not a Norris winner. He put up points, but he can't shut anyone down.....yet.

No offence Per, but Karlsson didn't deserve that.

Re: NHL Ref (Stephane Auger) "retires"

I believe a reputable source tweeted a few days ago that it was indeed a forced retirement. The Gregson comments confirm this. Doesn't surprise me. I knew it was coming at some point once the Burrows/Auger thing was far enough down the road. They couldn't do it right away as it would have been admi...

Re: Luongo will Waive NTC If Asked To

When was the last time a 8th place team knocked off the top 3 teams in their conference (including the prez trophy winners) and win the cup? Further to that, when was the last time an 8th place team lost only 1 road game in the entire playoffs? 2005-06. Edmonton takes Detroit out in 6 games. That O...

Re: Luongo will Waive NTC If Asked To

Should also point out that the 2005-06 Red Wings were so devestated by their upset at the hands of the Oilers that they blew up the team, gutted the core, completely rebuilt and went to the Conference Final the next year. OK. That's a lie.....all but the bit about the Conference Final. They made min...

Re: Luongo will Waive NTC If Asked To

Vic's Post When was the last time a team (particularly, a first place team) started flipping 3 to 4 core pieces in one deal to get a superstar and the 2nd overall pick, and then turned around traded the 2nd overal pick and another key piece? Don't bother checking because the answer is never. When w...

Re: Luongo will Waive NTC If Asked To

Burke is either full of shit or so stupid and stubborn Can't it be both? :mrgreen: My take on Burke is that he is a good gm, but not great, but he sold himself as great to get the Toronto job, and instead of just calmly developing the team he felt the need to show what he could do; thus the Kessel ...

Re: What will Cory Schneider sign for?

Moreover, I think that Gillis is going to have to be careful here, because if he signs Schneider to a new deal, and then suddenly can't move Lou because of some unforseen circumstance.....well that's a problem. If he moves Lou before he signs Schneider, well then Schneider suddenly has a 4 of a kin...
