^ "Make a fucking save!" - Coach Peters

Why don't the Canes simply trade Lack for a 3rd + 7th. :lol:

LMAO the Rubber Pants Brigade was adamant General Benning got thoroughly raped in that trade!

Bob Mackenzie:

As release indicates, ZAR reports to WBS of AHL on ATO and NHL contract kicks in next season. #acronyms

Guess he went with an eastern US based contender and wasn't concerned about burning a year off his ELC. Good for him signing the ATO and showing he wants to help the farm team. Character.
The only HW the Canucks need

That's good for him, plus I'm really hoping to land Kerfoot instead who could become available this summer.

I've said this a few times now, but Kerfoot is a great playmaker pivot, he is what this team is currently lacking, besides the near retired Hank we don't have any other center really who can setup his wingers well with vision and super passes.

And no Bo isn't a superb Adam Oates passer, he's more like Kesler powering his way to the net like a bull, who can dish a pass a bit off the rush, but isn't the type to slow it down and make plays.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

According to insiders "Walt" is dumber than a sack of hammers. Gonna see a lot of dumb things come out of this dumbass until he retires.

Yep Dude and his fuzzy navel crew don't like the rough stuff. Turn the other cheek they say. Violence never solved anything .

Solid coach.
Ruff has a reputation as a hard-nosed coach. reputation as a defensive-minded coach.

His system promotes defense without stifling offense and he isn't afraid of using young players.
Stars team was great for 3 years, then the dreaded injuries woes hit em hard this season and everyone knows their goaltending sucked balls.
Their drafting has been horrible.
And the JB mantra about Seguin continues..
Seguin's playoff stats with Dallas

He's been great during regular season, but I guess Nill hasn't been able to deliver for rest of team, notably goaltending, and everyone around here knows how hard it is to find secondary scoring after the Sedins....we finally find some in Bo/Bart but now the Sedins are nearing retirement.

Ruff coached a dog into Buffalo and turned the Stars into a dog
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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