Hmmm, a big mook that can clear the crease during defensive zone face offs, and the last minute of the 3rd period when we are up by a goal. Yeah, that's the ticket.

I'd take him as our 6th defenseman, and swap him in and out with Corrado, if Corrado earns the 7th spot in the line up. But, what is he asking for $$ wise??


If Corrado "earns" the 7th spot in the lineup then he's also earned a ticket to the AHL. It's stupid to have a kid with no pro experience sitting in the press box when he could be leading the Comets' blue line.


I do agree with you that Corrado needs to play. But, swapping him with Murray gives him 40 games, and gives us Murray for the Calgary/other homer team games. Plus Corrado gets sent down when we have a light schedule (Olympics) and other breaks, and plays more NHL games when we have injuries.

Heck, given that we have used 13 defensemen in previous years, it is a safe bet that the #7 guy will get his fair share of games just as an injury replacement.

Maybe we make the playoffs because of weaker teams like Calgary but even that is not a cinch bet..

Predictions for 3 centers ( all soft players all poor defensively )
H Sedin... 70 pts..and more penalty minutes
CoHo.... 60 ...
Gagner ... 70 pts ...

Ooops this is far off topic !! so . goaltender predictions..
Schneider ... top 5
Luongo .. doesn't make the top 10..

Tiger wrote:He [Tortorella] took on a losing proposition ... a No Win situation

About the only thing to be excited about this season is going to be the press conferences when Torts finally loses his cool..

Tell us how you really feel.

At this rate, soon you're going to be telling us that the Canucks couldn't even score with a Thai prostitute and a pocket full of cash..

hmm dbr.. did a hooker turn you down? ..
So I still stand by my posts.. Maybe if you put the whole sentences in they might make a bit more sense .. but on the other hand you have said nothing to refute my opinions .I am not terribly upset with the prospect of a worse season than last year as it is part of a rebuilding cycle. Hopefully some of the young guns will learn a bit more and look good by the end of the season.. So ?

If Torts plays the kids then I am happy, this team is still very good and will make the playoffs.

What can set this team over the edge is if Kassian can get 40 points and play a little more power forward.

I also really want to see the D get the green light to take more risks and get the points.

Again if this happens then I can see a lot of positive if not then hang MG from the tallest rafter.

No Tiger, I've never had occasion to get turned down by a whore, I just figured since you're in Thailand I'd use an analogy you can probably relate to.

Well you'll notice I didn't really say a single thing about hockey in my post.

My point was more to point out the amusement value in the fact that you've been bemoaning virtually everything about the team all over the board for weeks, even in this very thread, and then came in to offer up "uhh yeah, so you guys can count me as a pessimist" :lol:

Hell you might be right about everything, I don't personally think so but that's neither here nor there, it's still funny as shit that you think anyone (or in fairness, anyone who reads your posts) has any doubt as to which side of the line you're on..

Nobody's freaking out here, Todd... although I have to admit the chinese water torture-like quality of your steady stream of misspellings, intentional and otherwise, might make me snap one day :crazy:

Okay, what about Ryan O'Byrne as our #6?

Huge, right hand shot, BC boy, kills penalties and opposing players. :mex:

ROB is an SOB.

Thoughts?

From the way GMMG spoke in his state of the union meeting with season ticket holders, that was a done deal. Why it hasn't been announced yet?????

He also said he wasn't going to pick up any vets as that would take away from spots for the kids. He said lineup is done with the signings, including Tanev, with roster spots open to the kids. Had a belief, how strong?, that BoHo may make the roster.

I summarized it here

GMMG is definitely gonna pick up at least one more dee IMPO.

Two, if Corrado is to play mostly in the AHL.

Can't really see any of the other kids ready to challenge for a spot on dee.
