So what you're saying is Burrows is expendable now?


nah I think we are just collecting biters .. I wonder if Suarez plays hockey?.... hmmmmm

Dorsett is a bit of loose cannon and he does take dumb penalties, so I am hoping that Willie can make him more selective - but he is a cheapshot artist. I love gritty in your face players, but then I hate cheap bitches on the ice - he isn't Avery level douche but he's close

4th line complete a gritty in your face, not fun to play against:
Sestito - Richardson - Dorsett

AND NOW we can argue all summer about our 4th line again, ah summer nights.

Now trade for Grabovski, put him with Burrows & Dorsett, & call them the Cannibal Line.

Other teams thought they hated us before.

Benning was talking about needing more sandpaper in the bottom 6.

Where ya been the last 4 years bro? :D

Agreed on both counts, although you must admit he's "an elite 4th liner" (credit: Rumsfeld).

Seven years ago?

LOL get over it bro!

Not sure how much damage can be done to a gloved finger through a mouthguard anyway...

McArdle rams his finger in a guy's mouth and then cries when the guy chomps down??

"Kenndal"... isn't that a girl's name? :look:

Anyhoo, I thought folks stopped whining about this incident years ago...

dondo wrote: - he's kind of a loose cannon kind of pest as well and takes cheap-ass extra shots whenever he gets a chance.


Really? :eh:

Y'know I'm really starting to like this acquisition! :thumbs:

dondo wrote:maybe Willie can smarten him up and settle him down.


Wasn't Willie his coach when the (alleged) biting incident occurred all those years ago? :?

And isn't it likely Willie pushed Benden to grab him?

Personally I think I’m going to enjoy watching Dorsett’s antics on our fourth line!

Yes we paid too much and yes his salary is too high.

But hey, they got the guy they wanted.

Not to be outdone, the Flames traded the 83rd Overall to Chicago for Brandon Bollig.

Welp,

Just for shits and giggles, these are the players that were drafted in from 85th to 90th (in the third round).

mostly on WHL sites, modding Giants forums - haven't talked nucks in a looong time

what can I say I hold a long grudge and I watched Dorsett cheapshot his way through these past playoffs.

Anyway I still hope this kid can be turned around because I like his effort and hunger on the ice.

and yes Willie was his coach then -- maybe Willie has grown up some too... :P

I still hate "Snappy" though - hoping he changes my mind - but yes still too expensive and gave up too high a pick - but meh - we shall see

Holy shit Batman! Just noticed Dorsett is a 2 million dollar player with a 1.6 cap hit and he will be a UFA after next season. We give up a 3rd pick for that kind of 4th liner? :?

Well it was a late 3rd and they wouldn't have done it if they weren't pretty sure they could re-sign him.

(Willie and Derek are good friends)

That Batman thing was supposed to be a secret....

Need a gritty NHL player for the bottom 6, dude just went to finals playing 23 of 25 playoff games for New York while averaging 9:28 minutes, so he can play some decent 4th line minutes something JB/TL want to roll with 4 lines.

Dorsett kept Diaz from playing forward in NY
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

I guess ultimately the question will be, what does a guy like Derek Dorsett get in UFA this year - particularly when it comes to a team (like ours) that probably shouldn't have much in the way of a competitive advantage in the marketplace?
