:D

twitterverse - sounds like Eberle got a serious shoulder or wrist injury for you closeted oiler fans.

Hawks have placed Bickell on waivers. I guess they couldn't find a trade partner without taking salary back. Wonder if anyone takes him for free. If they demote him they only save $900K on their cap.

Rumour was they were talking trade with the Oilers, but it fell apart.

I wonder if Chiarelli pulls a total dick-move and claims him for nothing off of waivers now.....Edmonton could take his $4M at still come under the cap by $200K. If Ference is going to be on the way out, they would have a nice cushion still to add through the season if they wanted to.

Heard that too for Nikita Nikitin, and now he's on waivers. http://thehockeywriters.com/oilers-plac ... ign=buffer

Ya, for it was for Nikitin but Hawks couldn't take salary back. Wonder if Oilers pluck Bicknell now or if they have internal cap concerns. I actually think Bicknell would be a good addition for them but his term is too long.
The only HW the Canucks need

No rage over here yet concerning the extension Lack signed today? He will make less in the next three seasons as Miller will make this season.

Has Doc demanded a gag order?

Good deal for the Canes. If he can turn into a 50-game 1A goalie when Ward is gone, it's even better.

Funny, now Nikitin is on waivers for the purpose of assignment. It's assumed Bickell will stay with the Blackhawks, they were just trying to give him away.

That is what backups earn.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

Oh Eddy. :(

Eddy, Eddy, Eddy....

Which place is truly Nazi Bizarro World?

Is it the one where fans of a team

- predict nothing but gloom + doom?

- hope their team sucks... which would prove them right?

- mourn constantly about players who have been traded away?

- whine about players who have been acquired, rather than cheer for them?

- threaten to tar and feather their GM even though the product on the ice is improving before their eyes?

- mob attack any fan who dares say anything good about their team or GM?



WAKE THE FUCK UP EDDY YOU'RE GOOSESTEPPING WITH SOULLESS GHOULS IN HOCKEY HELL!!



Stay home here in the Land of Milk + Honey where you belong good buddy. :mex:

Wasn't there some Oiler fans who kept on saying Scrivens was just as good as Schneider..
