Wow! there is something wrong. That post didn't take right away. Said there was an error.
But then it came up?

Good to know. :santa:

Team speed is down as well as team defense.
Did you catch Sutter looking on in disgust from the press box the other night

... after yet-another instance of forwards not picking up their man resulting in a goal against?

This team needs his skill-set back on the ice... not to mention his... M E N T O R I N G.

And in the case of the Sedins... his... I N S P I R A T I O N ?

Blob admitted to me in a PM the other night that I was right about Mr Sutter. :santa:

Yes, we're looking into the problem.

In the meantime we ask that folks please be patient.

If you give it 10 seconds, the post will most likely show up, but...

I suggest that everyone right-click-highlight + copy each post before hitting "submit".

That way, if it times out, you can re-enter the site, thread... and paste the post.

Ironic what became of Ohdee

he should never have apologized.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

Names to go in the first round, so it seems

1. Dahlin - defence
2. Boqvist - defence
3. Svechnikov - RW
4. Zadina - RW
5. Hughes - Defence
6. Wahlstrom - RW
7. Tkachuk - LW
8. Dobson - Defence
9. Wilde - Defence
10. Kupari - Centre
11. Smith - Defence
12. Farabee - LW
13. Denisenko - LW
14. McIsaac - Defence
15. Woo - Defence
16. Merkley - Defence
17. McBain - Centre
18. Veleno - Centre
19. Hayton - Centre
20. Thomas - Centre
21. Bouchard - Defence

It's turning out to be a very average draft, nothing special with the exception of Dahlin. Is trading the first an option? If it's for a known young prospect in return? Dobson is climbing the scouts list and Bubbles/Puddles boy - Tkachuk is falling, not looking so good this season, seems to be slotted in the first on name only. This Disenko could be a sneaky Tarasenko draft day steal, but the Russian factor.

I have zero interest in right wingers - Svechnikov (a russian) and Zadina. Hughes is 5'-9", the kid must be good to be ranked that high, but that's Jordan Subban territory. Tkachuk is a slow lumbering left winger who is considered to be not as good as his brother, he's having a stinker season. Really not sure that tanking for a top lottery pick this draft is where it's at, unless the stars align and we win the lottery, doubt that

I was outta here now I’m back due to an unforeseen event but I still haven’t seen a pm of me endorsing Brandon Sutter. The last pm in my sent box was Sept 4th to Icehead/GM/ Brown Knight
