we'll get to see a lot of smith vs. smith action in the coming seasons.


Both of them are UFA's. Thats the funny thing. We only say "pipedream" because we know how dumb Holland is.

....or because of the players ridiculous salary demands

We went over this.

Horton/Clarkson @ 11 million

Vs.

Brunner/Cleary/Sammy/Bertuzzi/Tootoo @ 12 million.

Either way, you have 2 guys in your line-up.

The mpney is not an issue.

Clarkson is hot garbage at the amount and term he wants..Horton has already stated he wants to be in a non traditional hockey market ...I'm not sure if you have noticed but Detroit is not non traditional.

Please don't let the facts get in the way of good old delusional thinking.

And? So?

Same EXCUSE we are going to use for every UFA Kenny fails to sign?

"X Player" wanted blue to be one of the team's colors.

Hogwash.

Money talks. B.S. walks.

What's with your obsession for Vanek and furthermore why would Buffalo trade their best player to a division rival?

Dude can bury it.

Because he wont be in Buffalo past next year, anyway.

So you think they're going to willingly trade him to one of their strongest divisional opponents so they can then play against him as much as possible??

If the price is right, why not?

We picked up Chelios from where?

Chelios was 37 at the time. Chicago didn't fear playing against him.

Vanek is 29, in his prime, and by far the best forward/goal scorer on their team.

Not a good comparison...

Its also Holland's fault we have made the playoffs 22 straight seasons. What a loser

I'm not saying Holland didn't have his time where you can attribute a lot of the team's success to him, but Bowman put the team together that contributed to the brunt of that playoff streak, and you could say his influence as well as the effects of our success under his leadership as a GM and/or coach in those years at the very least helped keep the momentum going. Again, not saying Holland doesn't deserve credit, but certainly not anything close to 22 years worth.

Out of curiosoty, in which Stanley Cup do you think Chelios helped us more - 2002 or 2008?

I agree that some of the wings are over paid but I don't care how you compare it, Horton + Clarkson is NOT worth 11 mill.

I know it doesnt seem like it, but it is

2 guys in their prime that give us what we dont have = size and offense. Its not a buyers' market, unfortunately. That was 10 years ago.

Man you get off topic quick.. nobody said he was a non-factor, just that it was a horrible comparison as stated above.

The original point was I don't see Buffalo trading their best player to a top division rival and thus having to face him as much as possible.
