Re: IIHF WJC

Why do you keep on going on about the fact that he's a 20 year old? duh, the fact that 20 year old hockey players don't have much experience playing at the highest level. Experience matters in a competition like the WHC and unless he has other attributes to compensate for that i.e. he is an excepti...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Uhhhhhhhhhhhh, I think PK Subban would be in the mix for the top 10 list of best players in the NHL. He's a franchise type player both on the ice and off the ice. To be honest, right now, if I was building a team, I'd even take him over Sidney Crosby, who is the best player in hockey when healthy. ...

Re: Gino Odjick last fight: battles terminal heart disease

I would be okay if Gino's number is unofficially retired with the possibility that only when a legitimate heir apparent that possess similar qualities to what he brought to the franchise with the blessing of his family be allowed to wear it, moving forward.
