Leaves management and Leaves fans seem unwilling thus far to pay the price for a legit top-pairing RSD.

Instead they keep rolling with the cheapass sneaky/smarter-than-everyone-else moves.

"We'll overpower everyone with tons of offence, we'll be the reincarnation of the 80's Oilers!"

"Let's just bring in undrafted Zaitsev from Russia and overpay him in dollars/term."

"Let's just bring in Old Man stick-a-fork-in-him Hainsey and play him on his off-side until he's 38."

As a Leaves hater, I'm very happy with "the Shanaplan". :mrgreen:

The moneypuck moves don’t always work when building a team. The thing is they got the assets and the forward depth to give up a Nylander and a high pick to get a top right shot dman. If they’re too chicken to try there gonna waste their best chance at winning a cup, once the money comes due they’ll be in a salary cap hell.

Yep. It's never a bad thing to have a lot of good assets. Poor decisions (Oilers/Hall) could really screw them, but they're in a better position organizationally than a majority of the league.

Haha fuck what would we do for comedy without you guys going at it. I dont want to live in a world without it
UDL, Roberto Macenzzi the Sicilian also wanted to sign Karl Alzner and Andrew Ladd! Two contracts far worse than Loui E’s. The Sicilian likes his slow skating lunch bucket, stone hands, hockey players. Old school
Dude any defending of Loiu Eriksson whatsoever weakens your position. The guy had 7 fucking hits ALL SEASON.

Hes 6'2" 210lbs. I bet Brandon Reid would outhit him 10 years retired ffs.

Alzner and Ladd also suck but best to leave Loui out of any comparison party
Get over it... Swedes don't hit.. Biega outhiits Edler better than 3 to 1..

I think he’s a pretty big consumer of paint chips. Doc is the distributor and he drives around in a golf cart with ape hangers and a dispenser puking these things out. His loyal minions get their share. Tiger must have took a pipe wrench to one of them and mixed in some toluene and scotchguard before he posted. Good times :lol:

Seriously? I mean... seriously? Wtf?

31 teams in the league, and not a single one interested in Tobias Enström?

Sure, he is a smallish player, and it's been a while since he had a 50-point season, but he's just 33.
No need to hang up the skates yet.

Because of this neglect, he has now signed on for Modo, with the explicit goal to get them promoted to the SHL again.

Now, I'm sorry, but Björklöven does not need that. They've beaten Modo fair and square in the preseason, and I'm hoping they could have a fair shot at advancing, but then some of their opponents suddenly find NHL calibre players in gift baskets on their doorstep. No, not fair! :evil:

Anybody watch TSN’s special on Joe Murphy? Quite sad, really. I used to hang out with his older brother Jim, an absolute party machine, cocaine machine. ChefBoi had a couple dusk to dawn powdery nights with Ole Jim. He got expelled from his high school and ended up going to mine. He’s completely disappeared, can’t find him anywhere. He was a bit screwy, a crafty individual for all the wrong reasons, actually a decent scrapper too. Makes me wonder if he had any influence on Joe’s social activities while he was in the NHL? I do remember Jim joking about trying to get Joe to smoke weed. Joe was very focused and straight lace back then while playing at the north shore winter club, surprised by his turn of events.

I saw it. Its bloody sad. My older cousin played against Joe a lot. He was a stud player growing up. We were playing peewee when he may have been the best bantam player in the province. He used to dominate that age group

Glad neither of the Sedins had to leave the game, (potentially), this way.
