Goodness gracious, the man wants to play for the Red Wings, let him freakin' play for the Red Wings.



The league wouldn't work real well if players were allowed to play wherever they wanted for whomever they wanted for any amount of money they wanted. Try looking at the bigger picture.

Filing retirement papers forces the player to sit out for at least one season.


Didn't Hasek come back after only a few months? Or did he come back in '04?

Islanders are just going to trade him next year for a pick anyways probably. Won't be able to get much because Nabokov hasn't displayed his play in the NHL since a year ago.

Retired after the cup win in '02, was retired all through '03(the reason we signed Cujo), and came back in '04, causing a big ruckus, but only played like 14 games, then was out for the season with an injury. Signed with the Sens in '05.
Pavel Datsyuk would'nt acknowledge if he aggravated his right wrist that was broken in December. The Russian only said that he is looking forward to getting back on the Red Wings plane (back to San Jose) for Game 7:

"Have good seats" Datsyuk said.

I couldn't remember if he was back in '03, causing the ruckus and then signed with the sens in '04. Thanks for clearing it up.

I agree with the general idea that the Isles are going to keep him, then try to trade him at the deadline for picks/prospects. I wouldn't be opposed to picking him up then for a relatively cheap price, since his cap hit will still be very low, and Osgood is likely going to retire.

Selanne and Karyia didn't have a problem doing that before.

You don't often have two (former) super-stars signing together with a good team for $1 million each after years of making nearly 10 times that much in years past.

Milbury just said once again what a good rule this waiver thing is, and billy jaffe was trying to control himself from laughing. lol

Remember that Bill Cosby show called Kids Say The Darndest Things?

We need to invent a new one starring Milbury and just run through clips of him saying this stupid s***. I'd watch it for the lulz.


there's speculation that Ottawa will be getting a new GM and coach this offseason. Pierre mcguire's name has been mentioned as GM; maybe they should also hire Milbury as coach. :hehe:

That would be epitome of "suck". Though I'd be for this idea. Everything needs some comic relief. The "team" those two would produce would be pretty damn comical.

Then again, we already have the Islanders, so...

pierre's name seems to come up everytime there is a GM opening. but given how he is perceived (at least by the fans), i wonder how other GM's and management from other teams view him. will they take him seriously???

I don't know... Won't they have to make sure he won't trade away the team for Dion Phaneuf, Jonathan Toews and what's his face in Pittsburgh? He'll be all, "I have a Big Three!" and everyone else will say, "This isn't the NBA..."

I honestly believe if people were able to take Pierre seriously, he'd be better as a GM then a broadcaster..

Hes the Matt Millen of hockey. However at least Millen makes a decent job and sounding intelligent and fooling people into thinking he knows what hes talking about.

According to Islander fans, Holland will trade a 1st round draft pick + Hudler for Nabokov next year...

That's absurd. There are no Islander fans.
