A valiant effort. Two of the more asinine neckbeards on that board - MS and RJL - were both seeing red. I'm hoping the mods took a bite out of them, too. Weird to see near-40-year-olds get so upset when the name "Jim Benning" is mentioned...

MS is a joke. He has to be around 50 now. This guy used to be a half decent poster 15 + years ago. No idea what makes him so angry but the cat needs to chill. He took a pretty good beating at Canucks Central back in the WCE era. He blabbers on about having a proven record re scouting players. It's fucking priceless!! Even if you DO watch as much hockey as that idiot professes to, why the hell do you want to get that shit out there? I love the game and have an opinion just like the next guy but he takes it to a whole different level.

Welcome aboard! BTW I am one of the more critical posters of Ignitowski but I have liked some of his moves and have hated a few more. One thing I can't knock him for is waffling or being scared to make a move. Sometimes he's too brave though

Assuming Bachman clears waivers, which he should, especially now he has two years under contract, he is for sure the insurance they need to expose a goalie. Another good signing, and predictable.

Ummmm... I believe that the Great Strangelove was the only one to predict this:

Well there is a reason to extend Miller for at least a year, without a NMC.
Just extend our ole buddy Bachman for one more year. :wink:
Now we all know that the Great Strangelove never "toots his own horn"

... which is part of the reason why I totally strangely love him btw. :blush:

Yeahno, we all know that the Great Strangelove merely loves to set the record straight!

Now notice this:

Lord Benning ensured no one will claim Bachman by making this extension $450K at the AHL level.

Aquaman has never been shy about flexing his financial muscles to give the team what it needs.

We're in good hands with these owners + Benning imesho...

Well in fairness you weren't the only one predicting this and nor does it preclude Miller extending for one more year, except now he can wait until after the expansion draft has been held to do so.

There are plenty of Pratters out there though. :mex:

And I'm pretty sure no one else at this site predicted this.

I'm not trying to be an asshole here, work with me...

like predicting the sunrise
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

Yeahno, by now folks are likely thinking the Great Strangelove is Jim Benning's not-so-estranged bastard son.

MS is a clown who used to post at central before he ran away with a river of piss running down his leg. Hfboards has more mongoloids than Calgarypuck Reef. I ain't kidding

HFboards has an infinite ignore list and mine is almost full.
You can be anyone you want on the internet.
I cannot understand why so many decide to be obnoxious assholes!
