Following the Baby Flames loss, Feaster diagnoses an organizational disease that makes anyone who wears the Flames jersey suck.

Now that is what I call leadership! Telling a bunch of gormless 18-year-olds that they gave up after 20 minutes :lol: :lol:

I think Cassel's probably raised his stock the most in this tournament.

I typically expect nothing from 3rd round picks, but Cassels played really well and has the type of skill set that could allow him to care out a career as a good bottom 6 center down the line.

I think he's going to be very much "on the radar" for the next few years.

I agree Pot, the best Canuck every shift in the tournament, never takes a shift off...Horvat and Corrado have been good also...

Wow.

Add ventriloquists to Burke's resume.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

Nice positive thoughts for cassels, I guess i just don't hold out much hope for 3rd round pick prospects in that 5'11" - 170 lb range.

Have to be xtra special to overcome a glassels build to be an NHL'er

I was surprised that it took Burkie that long to get his arm up Feasters ass to make Feasters mouth move and say Burkies words!!

If subban goes from 5'9" to 6'-1" I will then pay attention to him

If Subban was 6'1" and 200lbs+, he would have been a first-second round pick instead of fourth. ;)

I'm thinking Feaster is fired by Christmas, and Burke takes over as GM... Who's with me!?!
It's a great day for hockey!

Count me in. It is going to be extra fun watching this team get levelled to the foundation by Burke and Co. just to see what emerges. This division could be one of the more entertaining ones in the league this season.
Love the Sport. Love the Team.

Hate the League.

Well, then if Cole Glassels (5'11" - 170 lbs) was Andrew Gassels size I'd might feel better about his prospects. He's another Jeff Tambellini type.

Like I said, I won't be paying much attention to a 5'9" defense prospect.
