PJ Stock has a better resume than McLean
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

Oh yeah.

That'll tell you where my heads at these days. I thought you were talking about some swing set I may have mentioned for my kids! But I couldn't think of anything.

Frack, with the kids my golf swing is non-existent. I did take them to the driving range last week though. I do miss golfing!

You can't agree with him before I do :evil:

Dear Mr. RoyalDude, you're hockey aptitude is beyond comprehension, your dilettante way of expressing foul attitude towards CBC's Hockey Night In Canada is bordering on maudlin.

I concur!

Shark swimming with guppies in the land of the whale:



Working hard to keep a smile on his face, but couldn't resist giving them the evil eye at the end.

Yup, you can tell he’d just LOVE to tear those giggling guppies limb from limb but he has to be a good shark

.... for now at least. ;)

why is the local media so infatuated with how JT will deal with them.

Like who gives a shit except the media, all I care about is how he will coach the team and will he hold players accountable.

If the media actually cared they would of gotten off their knees and asked AV relentlessly about why he has double standards and does not hold ALL his players accountable?

So far.. its been entertaining.. but unless MG gets it done with Lou, Ballard etc.. Tort doesn't have much of a chance to improve the team..
Sedin's on penalty kill ??? :lol: and blocking shots ?? :shock: not much hope..
Kesler would be the MVP for sure. he might get a few more offensive zone f/o ?
Think it might be more entertaining to get tickets to the press conference than to the game..
The only way the team as its presently made up wins the division again ( tougher division this year )
is playing a very boring defensive game..

^^ Improving team-wide defensive discipline is good. Less lapses is good. It doesn't have to mean rolling up into a defensive shell.

New PP & break out schemes are important - other teams have us figured out. Haven't seen any talk about this from Torts, but hope this comes when his assistants are hired.

With regards to the media scavengers... Imagine how Torts would have responded to the MacLean hatchet job on Burrows, or how Torts & the HNIC crew will get along. :thumbs:
