In order to be a great 'championship' hockey player one has to be lured by the evils of life ie, sex, drugs and rock n roll. You need to wake up angry every morning with a wicked hangover and take all your misery out on anyone who comes within earshot of ya. That my friend is what I look for in a hockey player. Angry and Mean and hungover from the Devils Sauce. I don't need any happy, smiley, flakey bible thumpers on my team. They win ya nothing.

Out of curiosity, In YOUR opinion how many of these angry, mean, hungover players exist on a Stanley cup team nowadays?

Excluding the minors, or players bought out.

Seriously.

I know there isn't too many great bible thumping hockey players, but there are some great bible thumping athletes from other professionals sports that have won championships such as David Robinson, AC Green, Kurt Warner, and a few baseball guys.

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

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

I know, it's weird. I once posted something in a thread that was only slightly off topic because it wasn't thread worthy on it's own. I was told to start a new thread regardless.

Now we have a Booth, Sturm, Samuelsson, and Turris thread thread.

Colour me confused but I have heard that the Canucks are indeed one of the teams that has made a significant offer for Turris. I don't know what they have offered other than it is significant and fitting for the type of player they believe him to be.

The stumbling block seems to be that the Coyotes are fearful if they trade him before he is signed then other players on their team will follow suit in future years (like they have a future). They also feel they can get more from him if he is signed and that they have a gun to their head which will minimize the return. So instead of dealing an asset that does not want to be there they are playing hard ball. They are quit prepared to let him sit until he signs, and get nothing for him this year. They re trying to make a point.

Word I got was that if he signed they would in all likely hood trade him and that the Canuck offer is still on the table. The offers are not as good as what Phoenix wants and this is due to teams being fearful of over paying for an unsigned player. They believe if he signs they can get significantly more which would take the Canucks out of the running.

So as I said, colour me confused on this one.
