That's what prompted my post. Plus I recall seeing a few people say they couldn't figure out how to imbed YouTube videos.

I assumed that's what he was trying to do.

For me, tweaked usually goes groin in hand.


So.... you're a tweaker? :look:

and search for a toothless tweaker
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

Shoulda picked up on that. I've noticed it a bunch of times lately and I thought it was on all his posts but now that I search I see some have it and some don't.

So Canuck-One, if Aaronp18 hasn't already fixed your problem.. help us help you (help us). :P

On the original subject, former 4th overall pick Thomas Hickey has been scooped up by the New York Islanders on waivers.. never played a single game for the Kings.

Oh and Ottawa dealt Ben Bishop to Columbus for David Savard, while the Nashville Predators have picked up former Rick Rypien victim Richard Clune from waivers.

Jesus, you know what? I was scanning the HFBoards trades area and thought it was listed as "confirmed with link" - it's just some schmoe spitballing, now that I go back and look again.

Sorry folks, false alarm, nothing to see here.. :blush:

Booth out 4 to 6 weeks with a groin injury.

Sorry RD, due to the shortened season judgement on Booth will now have to be postponed for one more season.

If there's a better use for his cap space this offseason, then another injury is to me a strike against Booth rather than a reason to wait around and see.

The Canucks already have enough players who struggle with durability, if they have a chance to address that they should do so.

This shortened season only 4 to 6 weeks long? Or do we have anothe excuse for Booth if he plays like he usually doe,s which is terrible, for when he comes back from injury???

Anyhow, do you think this injury might have something to do with Booth's dedication to off-season fitness, or should I say - passion for hunting? A groin injury could be the result of poor off-season fitness and trying to push to hard at training camp. What a dumb ass.

With Booth & Kes out for a couple months, I'm a lil concerned if we're relying on a second line of MayRay-Ebbett/Shroeder-Kassian. Not sure if Gillis has something up his sleeve trade wise (Lou) or free agent/waiver, but I think he really needs to get something to boost this line. I'd stay away from a guy like Gomez, but wouldn't mind someone like Jason Arnott. Not sure how much he has left in the tank or how much he wants, but he should be able to help for a couple months till Kes gets healthy at least.
