James Wisniewski

I grew up in Plymouth-Canton and I'm a big Whalers fan. Jimmy grew up in Plymouth-Canton and played with the Whalers as the hometown boy. Not only was he the hometown boy though, he was also the best player on the team. He captained the Whalers, won the OHL's most outstanding D-man award, won the CHL's D-man of the year award, was a scoring machine, had a helluva slap shot, and was far from scared to drop the gloves. Dynamic and fun to watch. Could not believe he slipped to the 5th round in the draft, and was very disappointed that the wings passed on a Michigan boy. I know he gets a bad rap around here....but he has his reasons for robbing CBJ with an overpaid contract.

ya, same reason's Semin has! :lol: I too, would have loved to have him here last season...it would have been a bit different outcome I do believe...maybe not a Cup, but different for sure!

Anyhow, I have always been a fan of Andrew Ladd...he ALWAYS killed Detroit when he was in Chicago, and I still would LOVE to have him on this team!

Semin has been givin every chance, hes just a lazy piece of s***. Wiz was never given a chance and got shipped around all across the league like a commodity. Played for 5 different teams before he was 28. Kinda sad actually, teams just kept flipping him for more assets. Had his time in the NHL gone differently he may have said no way jose to CBJ and signed here last season. I thought he was the perfect Rafalski replacement. Alas it was not meant to be.

He deserves a Cup, I don't think he will stay in Calgary if they don't make the playoffs

He wont stay. They don't want him and he doesn't want to stay... APPARENTLY. Rumour has it they want to rebuild and he doesn't/doesn't think he'll fit. I'd love him here.

Iggy is my favourite along with Vinny. Best days are behind them both but still love them. Vinny mainly for sticking with a sunbelt team (even though they are pretty good) and for all the work he's done in the community (children's hospital and all). Both just seem like guys I'd have a drink and a laugh with.

Chris Thorburn in Winnipeg. Goes balls to the wall every shift. Can chip in the odd goal here & there, can hit, can drop the gloves, forechecks like a sonofagun. Plus he seems to have good leadership skills.

Looking forward to Brandon Saad in Chicago this coming season. If he plays up to his potential, he could be in the Calder running.

Stamkos is also fun to watch. Brodeur has always been one of my favorite goalies.

One of my all time favorites from back when I was a kid, Billy Smith. Meanest goalie I've ever seen. Hextall & Belfour were good that way too, but no one was really as awesome as Smith, in my opinion.

I like checking out the young kids that start their NHL careers under 20. There's has been a bunch in recent years, a few good ones in Edmonton but my favorite is Kane, I really like his combination of talent and grit
