Thanx Herb. My 4 year old generation 1 jailbroken iPhone 3 isn't very efficient these days...

I think Butter going off in public so negatively about a player he has never even watched play is an absolute joke. Who the f••k does he think he is? I don't want this kind of unjustifiable bias in play when it comes to our national team.

Has there ever been a national team coach go off about a guy like this before?

Ok I just re-read the quotes and they're not quite as bad as I thought.

Still, it's probably alot more than he needed to say. Isn't it time to bring in the hay or something? :evil:

^^ It's like deja-vu all over again (or herb's post).


Meanwhile...

Canucks owner Francesco Aquilini told The Vancouver Province that the Sedins are "close" to signing extensions...

The Glass Half Empty Crystal Ball - Horvat and Corrado and Mallet will end up being the only three serviceable prospects of this current crop of prospects.

Shinkarurk - too skinny and short
Gaunce - Dana Murzyn skating
Jensen - one trick pony
Schroeder - A Midget with not enough Brenden Gallagher bite

the rest ain't even worth talking about

Not sure if people saw this but Mason Raymond is being given a try-out opportunity with the Leafs.

Wtf? is this a stab at Kadri, cuz they are broke? I'd still take MayRay for $1.5 mil. He's productive, and can play 2nd line with us

I would keep Raymond for 1.5 as well, except, if he stays, they the slot is gone... Now who are we not bringing up and developing??

Raymond had to go to make room for new blood.

What new blood?

I keep hearing people talk about "new blood" and giving the "kids a chance", but I dont see any new top9 players nor any kids who look ready to play.

What I see is the same group of forwards as last year (minus Raymond) and some deck shuffling on the 4th line.

I disagree. We need a few more depth guys. Capgeek shows us as having 12 forwards (including Schroeder), plus prospects. Bo/Gaunce/Hunter/etc can't be relied on to step up too far once we have a few injuries. MayRay is a good depth guy at a reasonable price, and typically gets about 40 points a season. Damned good for a softy. If he was 30 lbs heavier, he'd be getting closer to $4mil.

I guess the question is "if not Mayray, then who?" We have a good top 9, but a real lack of depth this year after that. And, that is an injury or 2 away from a disaster.

....
Well gee, Pot, I guess that's all you see because its still before training camp??

My point was that if we are to get ANY new blood (and I mean prospects that are developing), we need to have a roster spot for them to play. With Raymond still here, there is no spots for young kids to even compete for. Traditionally, young players that develop with a team (kids like the Sedins, Kesler, Burrows, Linden, etc) they start on the third line. Our third line was full. Now there is a spot.

There are actually two spots for the young guys to compete for, the third/fourth line centre and the fourth line left winger.

Sedin Sedin Kassian
Burrows Kesler Booth
Higgins XXX Hansen
XXX Richardson Weise

Sestito

Third/fourth line centre: Santorelli, Schroeder, Gaunce, Lain, or Horvat (not likely)
Fourth line winger: Sestito, Ferriero, Mallet, Archibald, or Jensen (most likely move up to the third)
