It wasn't from Eklund. It was from someone posting on the message board saying they heard it on the radio.


...and I'm not sure if thats worse or better.

"During Robert Lang’s time in Detroit, he caused me anguish. Other times he brought me and my family great joy. Robert Lang occasionally coasts, and spends time searching for the best pane of glass to best view the reflection of his flowing mullet. Other times he is a strong-armed force with the puck. I never knew what to expect from Robert Lang. He is The Enigma. " - A2Y

Calder is a Flyer, he was a blackhawk last season.

Anyways. I thought he was suppose to be really good? I remember all this talk years ago bout how Kyle is suppose to one hell of a player. No?

Yeah it was true....it was true years ago though. dry.gif

my wife's sister's friend's father's uncle who knows a friend of the guy who cooks dinners for zamboni driver in St Louis and knows certain season ticket holder who's best buddies with a man whose wife knows uncle of John Davidson's college pal says Guerin will come to play with Wings for free

that's about the value of such "rumours".
and most certainly of those s*** Eklund is writing

Maybe he can pull a "Cleary" with us. thumbup.gif

This season in Philly has been poor (wonder why...) but he put up career highs in goals (26) and points (59) last season.
Thank You TeeMan

from hockeybuzz....


Heard on CKAC 730 just before the puck was dropped between Toronto and Montreal. The announcer received it from his news team.

Philly didn't go for Fedoruk just to trade him away... they want him.


Not necessarily. Anaheim was looking to replace him with Parros after he got his grill caved in by Boogaard and wasnt going to be able to fight for quiite a while. So they moved him to Philly for only a 4th rounder...not like Philly aggressively pursued him. I cant imagine the Fridge is an untouchable, plus he's an imending FA so they could get something for him and then re-sign him.
Aaron Downey tally = 4 Wins (Mclaren, PARROS, *Laperriere*, Wisniewski) - 1 L (**Boll**) - 5 Draws (Walker, Fedoruk, Davison, Shelley, O'Donnell)

(* = beatdown) (** = at the end of a shift)

Preseason prediction - Anaheim over Philadelphia in 6 (ok, well i'll settle for one right...)

God, you people are never happy, are you? "Williams sucks! He's horrible! Trade him for a bucket of pucks! For warm beer! For a bag of steaming seagull feces! Waive him! No hockey sense. Worthless on defense. Lazy. Can't skate. Can't shoot. Can't score. Worst player in the league." Start whole threads just to hate Williams. Kenny PLEASE PLEASE PLZ PLZ PLZZZZZZZZZZ do something!! Anything! Kenny sucks if he doesn't make a trade.

Now comes the possibility that Williams might be gone....not only that, but the possibility that Kenny exercised some creativity (i.e., three-team trade) to get it done, and improve on the offense, and half you people are bitching! Good Lord! Shut up!

Williams contract = 2yrs @ $2.7 million. We would be stuck with that next year.
I believe Calder is making $2.9 million this season on a 1 year contract.
Wings may be looking to free up some money for the offseason and hope a change in scenery helps Calder??

Edited: Now that its confirmed.
