Yes Blobbers, we know you’re going to choose to believe the worst about Lord Benning

… whether it springs from your imagination, that of others, or some kind of combo.
For what it’s worth I wouldn’t like a Backlund signing any more than I liked the Sutter trade or signing. For a team in the infancy of a rebuild neither player at those bloated dollars makes any sense. You could get a better bang for the buck from a Brad Richardson type player at a fraction of the cost.

Friedman has turned TMZ now, he doesn't speak much on insider info anymore, it's more conjecture.
Sure he has. I guess Eklund is a good source for you. :)

The rat strikes again. How long before the NHL actually sends this guy a real message.



I would suspend him for the remainder of the season and the first round of the playoffs.

I’m not sure about the rest of the year. He will say he was trying to avoid contact but he basically closelined him.

That is two guys turning and running into each other

Nothing there.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

A good write up on the woes for the NYI.

Maybe Tavares will land in Toronto.

He's got insane shooting % at above 20.

Really wonder how he maintained that all year long.

Same with NYI's Lee.

I know someone closer to home who would knocking on 40 if he wasn't injured :scowl: - and I don't think any of us would have expected it, either!

Speaking of Karlsson, but up in Ottawa:

Shit! I can't even begin to fathom how terrible it would be..... :cry:

Yeah, that truly sucks. Don't even want to think about what it would be like in his shoes.

Hockey players are human after all and there's life outside the rink.
Love the Sport. Love the Team.

Hate the League.
