F*ck, f*ck, f*ck why couldn't we win one for Sami in 2011?
There goes my favourite current Canuck, probably one of my all-time faves really. Despite the drop-off in play last year, I was really hoping to see him back in the #6-7 mentoring spot....can't blame him for taking the dough and the term, I suppose.
Gonna miss watching that bomb from the point.
So far this day has been nothing but a kick in the nuts

"Exactly! It's just a bunch of stuff that happened."

For some reason this scares the crap out of me... probably mostly because of Edler.
Agreed. That pairing scares the stool right out of me too. Anybody else getting a little nervous about the blueline with all the other depth names going elsewhere? Allen coulda been had and wouldn't have looked too bad at his current contract.
I would have thought Gillis would have signed a name tough guy like Tootoo or somebody like that. Not much left to be had in that department IMO.
Gillis had better be cooking up a lulu of a trade, because outside of a couple of big-name UFAs a shallow pool is only getting shallower.

Leaving AV no choice but to play the young'ns.
If that's the starting line-up in October, you may as well just take one more year off the team's window for contention. That line-up doesn't scare me, it just depresses me. That's a pre-season roster and I would want a refund if that was the best Gillis could muster for a reg season game.
Besides, you know that would just mean that AV would play the top 2 pairings even more. At least Sauve and Connaughton would have awesome seats to the games.
Hradek also saying to not be surprised is Parise signs back with the Devils. Inside info? No idea as he could just be parroting what we all know...Parise will choose NJ if they can come up with a reasonably competitive offer.
