In Topic: Bryan Murray Diagnosed with Cancer

What kind of cancer? It's kind of important to know...

 

The article title is as dumb and sensationalistic as "Something really bad happened to Bryan Murray"

 

Hope he beats it, whatever it is

Man, everybody could've made $65 million in the "financial industry" if not for a few head injuries here and there. I mean, in the "financial industry" its a sure thing. All you need is a good brain and that $65 million begins to flow.

I never heard him use that one.  

Interestingly, he said that one right after the kids one.

 

When Nyquist was in GR and we put Sammy out there for 1 game or something.

My favorite... all time and probably forever...

 

"Kids are not the answer"

 

It just has a ring to it after what Nyquist, Tats and Sheahan showed us weeks later. The irony is still hilarious to me.

In Topic: Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

The key is no more Smith/Quincey pairing. Keep them apart, along with a healthy Ericsson and the defense is already a lot better than late season. Not even counting the fact that DeKeyser and Smith will only improve.

That's an interesting point. Why don't you think that pairing works? In a sense, Quincey doesn't produce offense so he "must be" a defensive defensemen. Yet he doesn't pair well with Smith because he sucks at being a defensive defenseman. Which kind of made me think.. who actually pairs well with Quincey? In my mind... nobody? Maybe Ericsson... but boy is that D pairing a couple of fat rooted trees. Probably a huge reason why nobody wanted this contract is because he doesn't fit well with anybody. What kind of "role" does KFQ play? He doesn't hit, he doesn't score, he's not overly gifted in his own zone. He just sort of does nothing out there.
