Yeah.  Thanks a lot, Vernie.  Nice work, ya jerk.

In Topic: Ken Holland Quotes (Apr 29th

Can we please shelve the "kick the tires," "we like our team," "(player x getting healthy) is our deadline acquisition," and "our PP is our enforcer" jokes alongside "(player y) is lazy and sucks," and "what's to stop Chris Chelios from..." as tired?  I'm begging you, please.  This board needs new material.



PS:  The beard quote is pretty great.

In Topic: Puck Daddy: Trotz Head Coach for Caps

He'll have no issue finding another job.  That guy has done incredibly well despite having scant resources to work with.  I'm not sure he'd do as well in Toronto, where the pressure valve is turned up to 11.  I'd love to see what he could do with all the talent in Edmonton, though.  Talk about a change of venue!


I hate to say it, but if we ever lost Babcock, I'd hope Kenny would give a long hard look at Trotz for our squad.  He's a coach.

In Topic: Lightning sign GM Yzerman to contract extension

After the Legwand deal Holland needs to be canned, but I guess the dream of Stevie coming to replace him is a pipe dream now.


FYI since joining the Wings


Legwand: .56 ppg


Jarnkrok .75 ppg

Get over it.  They're not even close to the same players.  Legwand is a three zone centerman with tons of experience.  Jarnkrok is an unproven, but promising playmaker.  I'm not qualifying either, but to list that single stat as a means of justifying one's worth over the other is absolutely ridiculous.


In 1990 Paul Cavalinni was +38.  Yzerman was -6.  Again, I'm not comparing either player today to Yzerman or Cavalinni, but you can't judge a book based on the opening sentence.
