    The goal of those types of events, aside from filling the stands, isn't to make racists "go away". The goal is to normalize the idea that homosexual people exist and are welcome in society. That's a different goal than military appreciation nights. One is geared toward celebrating the service that military personnel have rendered. The other is about ensuring that certain citizens aren't discriminated against or marginalized because of their sexual preference (as has often been the case in America).

    I didnt mean physically go away but for these people to change there thinking. Wearing rainbow colors 1 night a year isnt going to stop the discrimination or hate against them. The whole thing is dumb imo.

    I really want them to force the players to choose on these nights. Camo or rainbows. This way we can know which players to hate and which are LGBT.

    Vets arent oppressed though

    The pendulum is swinging to far the other way now imo. white males are being discriminated against in the workplace now your much more likely to get a job/promotion if your a woman or person of color.

    Im old school but todays society is soft.

    They absolutely are forced to wear camo jerseys on a military night. There is just no pushback on it because they are hypocrites. 

    How does that make them hypocrites? How is that a comp? 1 group of people fought for there country the other just like the same sex. 1 deserves to be recognized and celebrated the other not so much. Im not anti LGBTQXYZ but I dont feel the need to celebrate them either. I dont have a problem with different race religion sex orientation playing hockey but wearing rainbow colors isnt going to make those that do have a problem with them playing go away.

    This guy is an animal.  I have him #2 on my list of our prospects behind Edvinsson.  Soon to be #1 next year.

    Good prospect for 4th round but not top 5 in the org nevermind top 2. Kasper Edvinsson Wallinder Johansson Soderblom Mazur all ahead imo probly in the convo with Buium Hanas Buch.

    woah that's some clunky skating

    Looks kinda awkward but powerful imo. Theres alot of real awkward skaters in the nhl Bertuzzis one of the worst skaters ive seen and hes effective. Style of skating kinda reminds me of Bobby Ryan tbh.

    The trade was to simply prevent having to buy him out. Now they are off the hook for his contract by the end of next year VS the mess of a buyout. 

    Too much baggage/risk involved for him to ever fetch any sort of return. 

    Or we could of kept him for the rest of this season actually played him and up his value before trading him this summer. Worst case he doesnt up his value at all and you still get the same return from Stl or some other team this summer. Horrible mismanagement on the person/player/asset imo.

    SY got a 1st and 2nd for Mantha. Vrana and Panik were toss ins. Free even! He probably knew it at the time. No gamble there. 

    Let's put it this way. DA just gave up more (a 7th) for Vrana then Yzerman did. 

    Pure speculation.

    Johnston reporting that Larkin extension nearly finished. Will be north of $8.5 per.

    TSN reporting that Bertuzzi, Vrana, and Zadina have all been put on the trade block in anticipation for Friday. 

    I havnt seen tsn reporting that. Link?

    I'd love it, but, is this writer insanely stoopid?


    I really like Broberg but with Maata extended Edvinsson Johansson Wallinder not to far out the last position this team needs to upgrade is LD. Wallinder is basically Broberg a year behind. Same size and skating ability and similar offensive output.

    I wouldnt give up Bert for that package after seeing what Jeannot got Nash.

    Puljujarvi would be a throwin Id trade Sundqvist for him straight up.

    Nevermind the later round picks, this guy isnt worth a 1st, a 2nd and Cal Foote.

    Nevermind the early round picks this guy isnt worth a 3rd 4th and 5th.

    At this rate SY should trade Bertuzzi for a kings ransom. Ill take a 1st 2nd and top prospect.

    why? why would you do this?


    Make it make sense.

    What? No way Cbj even considers this offer for a second. If SY could pull off this trade itd be his biggest steal yet. Jiricek is top tier.

    Right handed Wallinder, basically.  We need one more RHD.

    Except way better.

    I agree....but i absolutely don't want a rental at this point.  I'd be okay with a player we have on the books for next year.

    Also, anxiously scanning the radar for Kenny to find and acquire the oldest big name player with ties to Edmonton to bolster their team....and overpay.  It's like death and taxes.

    Ya I dont want a pure rental either only player with term or agreed on extension in place.

    Vrana is back on on the wings

    I do still think theres a breakdown between Vranas camp and Yzerman.

    I think SY will opt to keep Larkin and Beetuzzi around, and might have a major blockbluster trade involving Vrana in his back pocket. 

    Vrana will be showcased over the next two weeks, and still has term on his deal (which is very valuable). I could see him being involved in a package for Chychrun or Meier. Sounds too good to be true, but SY is also the king of unexpected big trades. 

    Vrana + Walman + 1st for Chychrun?

    3 team trade

    Detroit gets Timo Meier

    Dallas gets Tyler Bertuzzi - 50% retained

    San Jose gets Det 2024 1st / Dal 2023 2nd / Albert Johansson / Antonio Stranges

  13. I hope thats not the reason SY and KD wanted Cossa. Personality and being well liked doesnt win hockey games. Wallstedt was a better goalie on draft day and has furthered the gap. Cossa is bigger and more athletic but Wallstedt uses his size better and is never out of position.

    Yzerman had all of the stats and glowing scouting reports on Wally and he interviewed him multiple times. The fact that he traded up, and still drafted Cossa, is telling.

    Its telling that SY has another 1st swing and a miss on his resume. Luckily for him he has some homeruns on that resume to.

    If Yzerman interviewed Wallstedt 10 times of whatever like the reports say and didn’t draft him then there’s something wrong with the kid that the Scott Wheelers of the world are missing. Something Minny may find out in Game 7 Rd 1 of the playoffs in 2025 sort of thing. 

    Or maybe its possible SY whiffed on the pick? I know we all want to believe SY is perfect and mistake free but hes not hes made mistakes this is one of them and hell make others. its the nature of the business. Fortunately SY makes more good moves then bad but it doesnt mean we should ignore the bad.
