I did a Dane Fox search on youtube and the first page is pretty much him fighting. :| Boy, the kid sure seems to luv to scrap. Maybe he'll be our next Rypien with a higher skill set. We also have another prospect that can do the Forsberg move. :D

Keep in mind, Tom 'seeing eye shot' Sestito scored 40 goals one season as a 19 year old in the OHL

The Eerie Otters are the best team in junior with crazy offence

Still somewhat optimistic with the signing

That's two genius signings for Gillis

Inclined to agree. Positive signing but he hasn't stolen the next Pavel Bure out from everybody's noses.

At worst, a decent "return" on letting Hamill go. Lose nothing gain nothing.
I wonder if they'll disallow the whole game because of the distinct ass-kicking motion the Canucks used on the Kings? - Brian CC

It's a super specific term within the CHL, basically he would have been eligible to play pro hockey this year but because he was undrafted and unsigned returned for a fifth season of junior.. a given CHL team can only have three of these players.

Basically 20 is ancient by junior standards just like 36 is by professional hockey player standards just like.. uhh, a few years older than you are now :look: , is ancient by normal people standards.

als0 41 goals in 35 games . They say he may gel well with gaunce next year in utica..

Almost 2ppg...who of our younguns is doing that?


Yeah I don't have any problem with the signing myself. I haven't been reading much on it but I see questions about the guys NHL upside, evidently from people who don't realize that we have an AHL team to stock now too.

Can only mean Alberts is staring in a Cecil B De Mille epic.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

Yep, give the guy a shot and he either succeeds and becomes another Burrows :) or another Holden :(

Did anyone see the stat last night where over the month of Dec they had the best GAA?

Was this correct in what I saw or did I miss understand that?

LA is lights out ahead of the rest of the league season stats so far but I am impressed with the Nucks.

At a quick glance we've allowed 17 goals through 12 games in December. I'm not going to go check other teams but I'd imagine there aren't many under 1.5 GAA for the month.

This Torts system is a joke. There is no way this club will succeed if it only allows 1.5 GA a game.

Luongo will be returning to the lineup this weekend. Burrows, Edler and Schroeder are all now day-to-day. Jeremy Welsh has been sent down, which I expect means Schroeder is close to returning.
