  1. Puck the Fenguins.
  2. No, just saying, for as good as he is, he hasn't been that guy to carry his team to the playoffs. He may have to alter his game a bit to take himself and his team to the next level. So in that sense he hasn't been such a success. Sheesh, everyone always looking for a fight...
  3. If we could get rid of the always injured guys back there, we could see how good these kids may be sooner rather than later...
  4. Outside of scoring a lot in the regular season, it's beginning to look like Hall is the bust. He couldn't carry Edmonton to the playoffs and failed to help New Jersey into the playoffs. Maybe it's not his fault, but he better start leading his team into the playoffs soon! And I'm a Hall fan, just seems like he's got a cloud following him...
  5. pretty stocky guy...
  6. Check out Filip sandberg (@sampthechamp): https://twitter.com/sampthechamp?s=09 Nothing on his Twitter about signing...
  7. We cannot sign him without losing an asset, he's an RFA when his contract is up, Peg would match or take our draft picks.
  8. True, I'm just so used to us craving a top guy who's right handed. All this talk of Trouba and Hamilton has got me brainwashed.
  9. If Svech alone got us Trouba? I think 100% of us would do it.
  10. I don't see anything that screams #1 d-man. Plus he's left handed.
  11. Don't know much about DaHaan, who does he compare to? Would he step in and be our #1?
  12. I was having those issues in 2011. Not 08. I simply said I didn't say what you said I said when you said I said it. I'm not worried about you bringing that up, I brought it up back then, it happened, we were apart for 4 months and are still together today. I never said I didn't lose it about the Wings now and again. You were just so matter of fact that it happened that night. I'm sure I said something crazy back then because if you remember something like what you wrote about a meaningless users personal life that i vented so many years ago, then I will have to admit that you probably remember me saying something to the effect of what you're describing. But it just wasn't when you said it was. Anyway, I obviously said it a few weeks ago, so I can't deny it again. I will say that I will be mad if Holland drafts him, but can't say he won't ever grow on me. He's just not the player I want. And for the record, I won't burn anything, s*** costs too much!
  13. Ok, you win number9, gordiehowesnumber, supermansballsupporter...or whatever your name will be next month. I give your childish ranting win. Kindly do not respond to me again and if you call me another unwarranted derragatory name, we'll have to elevate the situation. refresh your memory of forum rules. I asked you once, you said it again. I won't ask you again.
  14. Nope...was not during the 2008 playoffs, so you didn't prove I said it when you said I did...it was during my rant of Pettersson, but yes I did say it there, although I didn't say jersey's. Maybe your memory is just that bad that you confuse last month with 9 years ago. Quite possible. And I will be very VERY apes*** mad if we draft him, but I just have to hope he turns into a superstar, because Tippett will. I'd be careful 9, you don't go around calling people derogatory names unwarranted. You may have to create another username soon.
  15. Yes, but if you were just categorizing me into the prejudice side, it'd be like you telling me that instead of calling them Jewish friends, just call them friends. But you said "if the sheet fits" and that is YOU, not me, putting me into the maniacal hatred and violence category. You associated me with the Klan and Nazi's, that is where I got offended. If you had kept it at prejudice as in labeling a player Euro or NA, that would've been more of how I act from time to time. I can agree with you that I prefer a more NA style of player, and of that makes me a bit prejudice, so be it, guilty, but in no way, shape or form does my preference of player categorize me with the Southern Democrats of the world that created the KKK and Margaret Sanger who wanted to eradicate certain citizens based on their race and skin color. Now, when it comes to Pettersson, I'll admit I didn't do too much research on him because I do not wish to draft him with our first top 10 in decades. But I also admit that I'd be ok with Suzuki, who, outside of having a bit of sandpaper to him, is also a smaller skilled forward. So that is where I agree with you, I am more bias towards NA players than European. But that also doesn't change the fact that my list of favorite players include a lot of European players and my list of non favorite players include NA players. If drafting Pettersson and singing the small SHL kid (name escapes me) meant that we were trading Howard, Helm, Ericsson and Nyquist, I'd be all for it. I just don't like those players. In the end, I hope to draft Tippett, and in order after that (if he's not there) Suzuki, Hague, Liljegren. I'm not high on Pettersson, but if that's who we get, I can only hope he turns out to be great and he grows on me. I can remember back a few years ago I was touting Tatar and Nyquist and the new Euro-Twins, so I did have an excitement for Nyquist. I'm hoping whoever we get, turns out to be a top 3 forward or a top 2 D. Just lay off the KKK and Nazi extreme stuff and I will do my best to stop the prejudice towards the more Euro-style FINESSE players. I am fine with the bias label, I cannot deny that, but not the hate group label.
