Maybe if you post it enough times it'll happen, post really hard!@

Seriously though, I really liked it when Bootland was up in the '03 season

He wasn't signed to put points on the board, he was signed to hit and protect his team mates and take some of the slack off of Bootland and Amadio.

What's the matter with finding someone who can do both? Every enforcer type the Griffins have tried in the last few years look like they should play in a beer league, not the AHL. I'm not looking for someone who is going to lead the team in scoring, just someone who can chip in a point every couple of games.

Thats fair enough and thats why i was hoping that the Wings would have signed Robin BigSnake this year to play in Grand Rapids, but the Griffs are the leading team in offence in the Ahl this year so they don't need more people to put points on the board, they needed a solid stay at home D-man and thats why they went out and signed Jorde.

You don't find those guys among free agents. You'd have to draft a guy like that and Kenny is too busy drafting long shot players in Europe to waste a pick on someone like that.

I knew someone would say that, but there's been a lot of players with even less probability to make it. He could have had a more diversified drafting strategy for sure.

2 out of how many? When you draft every team and league in Europe, you're bound to hit on a few...why not diversify your draft stragedy so that....perish the thought, you can develop and power forward. Looks like Bootland and Ellis may be just that, but Holland will find a way to cut them loose

Tragically but true... I'll never understand it...
