But hey, I love Vancouver, love the Nucks but ya know what I hate more than what I love, arrogant Canuck fans and the Vancouver sports media.


Nobody wants to play in Vancouver! We should all just give up and never watch this team again!

Why? Is that your own spectulation or did Doan publicly say that??

Gillis said on the team after meeting with Weber that playing in Vancouver was not a priority, that the fans/local media often blow the "home team" draw way out of proportion, and that its one of several factors players consider.

He also said his impression was Weber wanted to get as much money as possible. Since we don't know what the next CBA will look like, we don't know how many millions of dollars it would have cost Shea to wait a year for UFA. Its not about not wanting to play in Vancouver or wanting to play in Philly, its about how is Shea going to get the most money. The answer to that is sign a massive offer sheet and wait for the Preds to match.

Had Shea actually chosen to play for Philly, he wouldn't have signed an offer sheet. He'd either sign with Nashville and demand a trade, or sign a one-year deal.

This is exactly why I think Holmgren is an idiot. Weber just used Holmgren to get the money that he wants.

Holmgren went for the big PR splash. Reminiscent of a GM who used to work for the Canucks.

Phili fans were crooning over Holmgren's gonads while Nashville considered the offer sheet, like someone here.

Now that the jig is up, Phili fans are having a second look at Holmgren's performance. Holmgren was taking some heat from local fans before the Richards & Carter trades.

Dut..dut..Dut...howldon thar kimosabis.....
Analyze..this......

I help shea weber get perhaps.25millying dollars more than if he waited.
Then after 1 year and 26 of those millying dollars having been paid, shea wants out..where does he go?

It like donating 25mill to a political fund, its likely you will be approved for whatever you need approving for.

Holmgren owns weber

Anywhere but Philly. Weber can demand a trade but the Preds will never trade him to Philly or wherever Holmgren works unless it is a HUGE overpayment.

Exactly! Weber should send a thank you card to Holmgren though.

Now that Weber is locked up long-term without an NTC, I will always live with a small nagging fear that he is traded to EDM out of spite in a blockbuster involving one of their young top guns, thereby making the Coilers a huge fucking powerhouse overnight.

Well, that is if Tambellini ever gets his head out of his ass and figures out that Dubnyk is going to get them nowhere fast.

I wouldn't worry about it, after shelling out almost 30 million in one year, Nash is not going to turn around a trade him to some team who then gets maybe the best D-man in the league with a nice chunk of his deal already paid out...no way, no how. He'll be there a long time...

Holmgren is a Media Whore.

what has he done?

Traded away the key pieces to LA's cup run for bags of pucks.

he knew he was losing Pronger to injury, so he let Carle walk for nothing.
Struck out with Suter as a replacement.

Let Jagr walk for nothing.
Struck out with Parise.

Made a 'Bold Move' for Weber, struck out again (wrong timing, wrong city to lay an offer against - cap wise, they HAD to spend money to maintaing the floor- and wrong player -- 'cause who would seriously let thier captain and franchise leader stroll off to an offer sheet!?!?!)

so why does Royaldude think Holmgren is better than Gillis again?

I am GLAD that Gillis is our GM and that its not Holmgren OR Royaldude.
The 'Chain of Command' is the chain I am going to beat you with untill you understand I am in charge.

RD likes active and BOLD GMs. Holmgren fits the bill. He constantly makes BOLD but stupid moves.
