I'd take JR, as long as we didn't give up anything significant. Hell if we could put up with Hull, then JR wouldn't be that bad. Plus JR obviously wants to win, you won't hear much if he's on a winning team.

Yep. Sooo close to signing but at the last second he chose Philly. BAD move. He would of won a Cup with us!


Grammar grammar grammar.

Hull was a team player when he was here. In any event, throughout his career he might have had a big mouth, but he never devolved to being a no-show.

If we can get a time machine that can revert him back into his prime years, then sure. Otherwise, he won't help us.



F that if we find a time machine we're getting howe and yzerman back damn it.

J.R should have been a wing in 01-02. Damn you Bob Clarke.


No kidding!!!

Hell, if we could get him for a 6th or 7th round pick or Lilja, I would do it. He wants to win, and playing for the Yotes and Kings just doesn't match up with winning.

Roenick does seem to elevate his play when there is something to play for. Does anyone remember the playoff series against the Leafs and the battles he had with those guys, especially Tucker.

That was 3 years ago. See recent career stats here:

The guy can't play anymore.

Yeah but Roenick was bumped to LA where he had a hard time fitting into their system and then the same goes for Phoenix.... too moderately bad teams. Put him on a contender, he'll elevate his play. Besides with us he'll play on the 3rd or 4th line and be a great leadership type player to have playing back with the younger guys.
