Woo is having s good season, really liking what I’m hearing about his game especially coming from Tim Hunter - “Jett is a real unique kind of player nowadays. You don’t see the guys who play that old school, smash mouth, run over people style. Not a lot of guys are willing to do that anymore, but I think there’s still room for that in the game”

You know this city loves those kind of players, think he will be a fan favourite in short order, will look good on the right side of Hughes. He will energize by running through people while his D partner Hughes is cleared to shake n bake with Petty


Good times cometh for Canuck Nation

Apparently John Madden’s kid is looking real good in his first year at Northeastern. Another late round steal by the Genius? Woo, Hughes, Lockwood, Madden, DiPietro etc., etc., etc. Too much to comprehend!

What do you mean swap?
Nikolay on dee, Nikita on Eli's wing?

Sounds like something the blob would wanna give a whirl. :mrgreen:
Trade both in response to your pump and dump suggestion ?
No no no no no no no. Ono nonononono
Why not? If we dump goldfinger that’s just gonna piss of tryamkyn even more.

And to be honest he seems kinda flakey to anyway. Apparently he’s been stripped of the C in the K, can’t say I know why but that’s gotta raise a red flag.

Do we really want this guy back when maybe we can package these two for more building material?

I dunno just chewing the spit here ...
Spit has no substance..... 8-)
If it is a pump and dump, it ain't spit you are chewing,
The Cup is soooooo ours!!!!!!!

Hughes was a late round steal?

Not one of those guys has played a game in the NHL. Too much to comprehend indeed.

I could be wrong but in the K they seem to fork the C over to the latest big signing.

They gave NT the C after signing him, and now they wanted this season's big signing to have it.

Tree still wears the A though and the owner said Tree is a top candidate for the C down the road.

I wouldn't be surprised if Nikita openly talking about a return to the NHL might have cost him the C

... and if he re-signs over there they may very well give the C back to him.

The reasons he seems to have left were:

(1) Weird Wille and his crazy benchings + non-trust of rookies leading to unfairly low icetime.

(2) Culture shock.

(3) The money being offered was similar (he makes less than $1M in the KHL but it is tax-free I believe)

But now Willie the Weirdo is gone, he's had time to study Van + English from afar, and there's a higher ceiling for future NHL contract$ vs K.

I'd say he's coming back whether Goldie is still here or not.

The Russkies are a little different and are the worst at a adapting to a new culture. Tree seems to fall into this category. Hopefully he’s just really immature cause there is way too much raw talent there to give up. The sky is the limit for this kid if he’d just realize it, hopefully he doesn’t throw that away due to a bad Russian attitude

I thought you’d be gowed up at the Legion pounding on a table for the waitress to refill your pitcher of draft and deciding on chicken tenders or the double burger for lunch. Salad or fries? Your wife is giving you the stink eye and wonders why you’ve gone to the bathroom four times in the last hour. The sniffling and snorting along with the white residue around your nostrils speak of a long night and a lot of boozing in the hours ahead. As you approach your mid 50s you are oblivious to how bulbous and veiny your Abe Vigoda snout has become. The skullett under the touque looks greasy and matted. Another call to Sketchy Pete to reload and obviously another trip to the beer store is in your future. Mix in some food my friend as it makes the trip down somewhat easier.

Waitress?

At the Legion?

You must really be a regular to get that kind of service!
