:shock:
Du-de! Your hatred for Gillis has now officially surpassed your support for the Canucks. Time for some counseling!

It's not your fault


I do sound like a lunatic don't I.

It's just that Gillis is a goof.

But who the fuck cares what I think, thought and think of him now, the bottom line is, your Lord and Savior Mike Gillis fucking dropped the ball and traded a good young, skillful centerman for a fucking 4th line enigmatic Dustin Penner slash Jim Sandlak.

Is the centre position a much coveted position Doc, or do you think we need players to fight Milan Lucic and Dustin Byfuglien instead?

The bottom line is, Mike is a good hockey executive, I will give him that, good on the back end stuff in managing a corporation but he couldn't build an ON ICE winner from scratch to save his ugly fucking ass.

Guy, you have no idea....Cody and his dad are headcases in the Lindros vein...I gots firsthand info on him in Markham (just as I had breaking Wellwood/Sundin info on CC ;) ). Gillis had no fucking choice but to trade him...it was either that or no one would take him if word got out....

Dude, maybe when you actually can tell us about something you were right about, maybe then you'll have a leg to stand on.

What will you do if Kassian turns into the second coming of Bertuzzi (circa WCE days)? Will you just retract and say that you are pleasantly surprised that you were wrong about Kassian and happy he turned a corner and developed into a top 6 forward? And will you also say how happy you are that you were wrong about Gillis and that he can actually make a good hockey move?

I'm not saying that this will or will not happen. I'm just wondering what you will do if it does. Are you willing to say with absolute certainty that it won't?

I'm starting to wonder if you disappeared from the old CC for a time because you became a broken record there too.....

You were wrong about Hodgson. Admit it. Move on. Don't try and sugar coat it and deflect from the fact that you've been wrong before and are not necessarily right in the here and now either.

WTF? You are aware you are talking about a 21 year old player who has played exactly 44 games in the NHL, right?

I dunno, maybe a bit too early to write him off? :eh:

Is that all you got Spidey? :roll: Ya simply don't inspire me anymore to wanna challenge you on hockey topics.

Anyhow, after 5 NHL ENTRY DRAFTS, NO MIKE GILLIS DRAFT PICK IN THE LINE-UP. Still riding the coat-tails of previous managements star players.

I would be a happy man and be singing his praises. I'm a 'what have you done for me lately' sports fan, Meds. I find that a lot of folks here quantify/qualify players on their past glories or where they were drafted, like Blob Mackenzie thinking that if a player was drafted high in the first round that must mean that he will eventually become a great player even though they have been pure busts like your Cam Barkers.

I ain't to proud to admit I've been wrong, ie Cody Hodgson. How many times do I have to go on about it with you folks? What gets me about the Kassian trade is everyone knew that after Cody Hodgson, this team was really shallow in top 3 centreman from the top to the bottom (prospects). AND PULLLEEEEASE Do not mention 4th liner centerman Lappiere and Malhotra. We are talkng top 3 quality. Everyone knows how hard it is to acquire quality centreman and how important they are to a team. Yes, I understand that Cody and Dad were a headache and he probably had to go, so we believe, but why the fuck trade him for a player of Kassian's type who was parked down in the minors of the Buffalo Sabres farm system when Cody was putting together a pretty damn good year in numbers on limited minutes and PP time? Oh, I forgot, so we had someone who could deal with the Milan Lucic's of the world. Real smart trade. I like Kassian I guess, but it's still a bad trade. That and the handling of Luongo. We really should be keeping Luongo instead of Schneids. We are in win now mode, the window is now, nobody wants 33 year old Lou and that contract, we really could have added a great piece with the more marketable Schneider.

Dude you need to get back on th weed. You are a crabby old man these days. I remember the dude from 10 - 15 years ago who was easy going, mountain bikin', puffin gaggers, and livin life. I didn't quite understand the need to wear spandex or to frolic with transvestites but hey whatever blows your hair back .


You have become the new Ward Cleaver and it doesn't suit you my friend. You are more like Iggy Pop and Mick Jagger.

Dude, try having your first child at my old age and trying to make sense of your life after years of taking it easy. I slacked far too long and now I'm stressed to the max in trying to make it as a family man with a mortgage and a business. I'm losing my hair so fast I can actually feel the follicles dying.

So your midlife crisis is bitching about things you have no control over?

Go buy rent a sports car or something.

Agreed. A giant back slapping circle jerk would've been painful. At least we have differing opinions to debate.
I would much rather have spent the lockout like we did than with nothing to talk about other than escrow, HRR and all the other boring crap.

Agreed, he was like Gian Maria Volonté in A Fistful of Dollars.

And how boring would A Fistful of Dollars been without Gian Maria Volonté amirite? :mex:

Well now, I logged off at 5 PM and had a great Friday evening.

Seein' as how the top 2 centre positions are filled for the next 4 or 5 years, not sure why your knickers are in a bunch.
