Re: Weber is a Pred for Life

Holmgren went for the big PR splash. Reminiscent of a GM who used to work for the Canucks. Phili fans were crooning over Holmgren's gonads while Nashville considered the offer sheet, like someone here. Now that the jig is up, Phili fans are having a second look at Holmgren's performance. Holmgren wa...

Re: Gillis. Who is He?

It seems Gillis thinks Weber's contract emphasis didn't go far beyond money, & that Holmgren is a bit of a goof . It was quite clear, at the end of the day, what the objectives were.. To take advantage of the current system, and to maximize his economic return... "why he didn’t take a flier like Phi...

RD would not think so... He has a Holmgren statue in his front lawn. :lol:
Rumour is, part of the statue is brass.

Re: Kassian Article - Overcoming adversity

Yes, team culture, influence, coaching and training are all cited as reasons to take a flyer on a player. Gillis told us that Oreskovich wasn’t just a throw-in. Bertuzzi turned his game around with a change of scenery (to Van), time, & getting away from Milbury’s pressure. He’d already shown great a...

Re: Nash to the Rangers.

Without a star to lean on, or look to for questionable leadership, the Jackets could evolve into a lunch bucket team with consistently good work ethic. A lunch bucket team that doesn't threaten to make the pay offs for a while. Without a star to watch, their fans could lose interest. Watching the pr...

Re: Nash to the Rangers -- in process

This might be the best deal Howson could have gotten, but if you're one of the two CBJ fans in existence, this must seem like very disappointing returns after all of the posturing that went on. Yeah, I have to agree. You'd think Columbus needs somebody to help sell tickets and be the "face of the f...

Re: Nash to the Rangers -- in process

Sather held his ground on not giving up the Rags young stars (Chris Kreider, Ryan McDonagh or Derek Stepan). Howson looks to have finally buckled. How do you sell this in Columbus? Beats me. Columbus got quantity instead of quality. A late 1st round pick, a D man who couldn’t crack the line up on a...

Re: The mildly ridiculous trade proposals thread

... whats also ridiculous is Roberto Luongo's stats compared to Theodore's(go compare their #s) and thinking Florida is giving up ANYTHING when their stats are almost the same in every category except in Salary and term... The team that makes the most sense is Toronto... Luongo has been more consis...

Re: Gillis. Who is He?

I'll say this about Gillis I listened to him in an interview where he predicted some team might well over spend and need to get rid of players later in the summer or early in the season and he felt he could make some good picks ups at that time. Seems like Philly is well on it's way There's been on...

Re: Luongo will Waive NTC If Asked To

I would keep Patrick over Evander only due to his ability to make the second line go. Are you kidding me???? E Kane put up approximately equal assists & goals since junior. He has the speed required to gain the zone, passing ability, and the hockey sense to get to scoring positions. The guy hasn't ...

Re: Shea Weber Accepts Offer Sheet from Phi (14 Years, 100 M

Canucks never made an offer because Weber did not want to play here. He felt family and friends could prove to be a distraction to him. That and the Canucks felt the offer would be matched. As for the water boy, he'd dropped the cash in a heartbeat for Weber. Kind of the opposite of Hamhius, Garris...
