  1. 10/18 GDT - Red Wings at Maple Leafs - 7:30 PM EST

    I guess that's all great as long as you're a well-off privileged white male. I was more referring to the national average.

    Of course! Yup just got home on the dog sled and currently skinning my seal in the igloo! Also I'd be careful comparing anything education related

    In Seattle maybe. I suggest you start watching the national news. Nowhere in Canada is weed legal...yet.

    To be fair, if we had to deal with the "stuff" you guys do in the states, Im sure we'd need cheaper and more readily accessable booze.

    So what would you do with Ericsson? Pay someone future assets to take him? We can't afford to bury and replace him. It's not that simple. Not to mention we don't have anyone who can replace Ericsson's shut down role. He's not a scrub, he's just overpaid.

    I think his development is best served in the minors on a winning team. Why try to marginally improve our backend for this season? Most people wanting Hicketts up, also want us to get a high pick this year. If that is an improvement, why would you do it?

    Ok but are we not focusing on the long-term at this point?

    How would bringing up Hicketts help him or the team?
  9. Alex galchenyuk - should we make a move ?

    I thought Nyquist was the future?

    Link Written 5 years ago... There has a been frustrating cycle so far to Athanasiou's career. Before his OHL draft year in 2010, he figured he was capable of being a first-round choice but he fell to the fourth. This season, he was touted as a potential first-round pick and played in the Top Prospects Game -- but fell to the fourth. He showed flashes of brilliance in a dominant four-goal game at Owen Sound in December, but in the second round against Saginaw, called out the club for calling him sick when he was, in fact, a healthy scratch. "I know some people will take it to heart, I was proud of how I dealt with everything that happened this year," he said. Not many on the club was particularly pleased when he did not show up for the Knights' end-of-year-banquet and OHL champion ring ceremony. "I really couldn't make it," Athanasiou said. "I was really out of town with my trainer (Ray Leblanc) and I couldn't get there." "I'm going to have to go pick it up," he said. "That's no problem."

    Yup he slipped alot on draft day because of attitude problems. He was also traded in the OHL away from the London Knights because he didn't feel he got enough ice time. He actually asked for the trade. It's always been a red flag for him.

    They were UFAs. It's very different. At that age it's a trade off of security for value. The longer the contract the better the value because the player is going to decline. RFAs on the other hand are going to more than likely get better so it's the opposite.
