Ya really...what's with the whole flip out about the damn bear hunt? It's cowardly to bait? Well unless you run it down and kill it with your bear(yes I meant that) hands then there's an advantage to being human. A rifle, a compound bow, an F-22 Raptor...all give you an advantage. So does being atop the food chain or a hunters blind. Face it...people hate to kill furry things unless they are smothered in Bulls Eye or are stretched over your Italian sofa frame.
Give it up and move on.... Look...Iginla must want a trade by now...

Killing Bears, no big deal, how he did it, pretty lame and cheesy, but that is besides the point. The whole incident just adds fuel to the fire of what a complete shitty acquisition Booth No Brains was for the money he makes. He's just a lame individual on all fronts.

Sounds like he and Tim Thomas may belong top the same club :D :D

Whatever Fredski, Ted Nugent is a monster of rock, a legendary guitarist and an icon. Whatever his political views, the dudes a TRUE rock star. if we are gonna start muzzling the very voices of freedom and rebellion then we are truly lost.

We all know that only girls and girliemen get their panties in a bunch over bear-baiting.

We all know that your hatred for Booth stems directly from the fact he is a "bible thumper".

Well at least that's what YOU told us... or were you just trolling?

So: girlieman, troll, or hater

... or all of the above? :drink:

There's also a rumour that Niklas Svedberg, who backstopped Brynäs to the Swedish championship this winter, will be heading over to Boston. It could of course be that they plan to dump him in Providence, but it could also mean that they're thinking of off-loading Tim Thomas while they can still get a good trade for him. :?

I assume all of the people who dislike -how- he killed the bear have experience in both baiting and non-baiting hunting. If not, why are you even talking about it? It's hunting, not whack-a-mole>

Anyone think that we are only talking about this because it is May, we are not in the playoffs, and are bored? No where outside of the chat boards is this even remotely on anyone's radar, least of all GMMG's radar.

Random talk, but what if we unload no show Booth's contract, and use that cap space available to sign Parise to a long term contract? If Kesler can persuade him to come to Canada, and potentially win a few championships.

You are one helluva master baiter there Rats.

I don't think Booth is allowed to bait that way though.

Finnish 20-yo sensation Mikael Granlund has signed a three year contract with Minnesota.

He has scored 127 points in 127 games over the past three seasons, playing for IFK Helsingfors* in the Finnish SM-Liiga, but is probably most known for his rather unorthodox goal against Russia at the 2011 IHWC:



Despite his tender age he has already won both the Finnish and the World Championship an deven gotten his own stamp:

*HIFK is in many ways a Finnish version of the Montreal Canadians, as they traditionally only used to have Swedish speaking players, whereas Finnish speaking players in Helsinki would typically play for Jokerit. In recent years they've become more bilingual though. Mikael Granlund is a very Swedish sounding name, but he hails from Oulu, where most people are Finnish speaking, and his middle name is Antero, which is very Finnish. Guess he may be of mixed background.
