Liar.


Careful, I know a good lawyer and I hear defamation suits are in this year :mrgreen:


I choose not to discuss how much HW is lying any further.

I apologize if I have, somehow, hurt her yearning for the Flames to get a higher draft pick - even though we know they will just screw it up anyhow!

Eric Staal tears his MCL, good news as it won't require surgery!

Lucky it wasn't his ACL, after the Edler collision I thought that's what may have happened.

3rd Degree MCL Sprain for Staal

He'll be out of action for about 3 months I heard, and there goes any chance of Edler to Carolina *online made up rumours*

"Stars have acquired rights to Ottawa defenseman Sergei Gonchar, 39, for a conditional 6th round pick. Hope to sign him to 2-year deal."

And here I thought they were trying to get younger?? :?:

Obviously he's going to Russia... free 6th rounder just to see if a phone conversation works out.

SMH - two years $5M per?

Seen that they said Gonchar can help with the young kids, me thinks they are just going to flip him at the deadline for a 1st or 2nd rounder. :|

Not unexpected. The Stars have lots of cap space to work with and I've expected them to mop up whatever they want.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

So I guess this means trades are allowed before the Finals are over? Can teams still playing be involved in trades? I mean not to help their team this year but if they wanted to make a trade for next year could they?
The only HW the Canucks need

I was wondering the same thing. I always thought the trade freeze lasted until after the playoffs were over.

Good signing by Dallas.

Newsy Lalonde calls him the best passing defenseman he's ever played against
