So Skyo, you still believe in the meaningless staged fights put on by heavyweight goons (Parros) who play roughly 3-5 minutes a game and are completely useless when it comes to the playoffs.

Hence! we have Volp/Gaunce some other utility ufa come in as well, Parros will help for a those odd rougher 45 games in a long grueling season.

Bollig is dressing in the cup finals for Chicago. And although I think Shawn Thronton is effective, he's only playing 7:30/night (about a minute more per game than Parros).

I don't think we need a knuckle-dragger like Boogard (rip), but I think we need a guy whose sole purpose is to smash people, either with his fists or, more importantly, his body. IMO, Sestito ain't it.

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

strombone can joke about that on twitter, as he'll just get traded before his best pal buf gets traded to the Canucks.

If Lecavelier and Richard are bought out, how about singing both 1 or 2 year deals at 2 to 3 million. Torts reunion. And they are around the age of our core players.

Is there any way that could work? Would these guys help?

Mildly ridiculous? Majorly Ridiculous?
Vinny, I could see.

After what Torts did to Richards in the final two games of the playoffs in NY, highly doubt he wants to play for him again.

Apparently they might hang on to Richards one more season to see how AV does with him.

If AV put one of our top forwards in the press box for the biggest games of the season, 90% of this board would have screamed bloody murder BTW...

"Torts" made Richards show up for the season out of shape?

Vinny would not come out west. He would try Montreal first. But I don't think a team like Tampa has the cash to afford that buy out, nothing to do with the cap, but the cash.
