You are absolutely right, hence my questioning what ills would have befallen the team had someone else been given the C that Lids wears.

My problem with this argument is not necessarily your side, but the premise of the whole argument in general. I view the appointment of the C to be a more organic thing. You're asking what we think would happen if someone else were captain, while I honestly think that could never be the case. Lidstrom is the Captain because of what he has done and who he as been for this team. Because of this, regardless of who has a C arbitrarily sewn to their jersey, you know which of the warriors the rest of the team will look up to when the game is on the line. Nick, alone, is the logical Captain of this team and will remain as such until he retires.

I don't know if I am making any sense or just blabbering nonsensically.

Although, I do feel the way that Babs seems to swoon about Nik in the press (and has pretty much ever since he got here) seems to indicate to me that Nik is doing an alright job as a leader inside the lockerroom, in addition to where we all know he is one of the best leaders in the game; on the ice.

Mods, you can move this to water cooler if you want but I thought it would get more attention in GD. Anyway, I was thinking of doing a LGW modern era draft with like 15-20 people on here, or even more, since it's the off season and I'm sure we are all bored tongue.gif
Once we get enough people we can vote and discuss rules like time limit on picks, who is eligible, etc.

Some suggestions I thought of so far:
1. We are drafting both for now and for the future. Assume that you will be GM of your franchise for the rest of your lifetime.

2. Decent writeup for each pick required. Around 200 words and somewhat informative/entertaining. Pictures and links to youtube highlights are encouraged.

I like it. I'm in.

I could swear that's how Kopecky got into the NHL.


Now that you mention it, I'm pretty sure that I remember a picture of Marian Hossa getting drafted - Hoss is up there wearing a Sens jersey shaking Buttman's hand, but if you look really hard to the back of the stage, there's old Kopecky with a "f***, I hope nobody says anything" type of look on his face.

And so the love affair began.

I would hoenstly rather rip my dick off and throw it in the woods than sign Jason Williams for $2.5M on a one year deal. Honestly, I would be absolutely shocked if Holland made that move. No way is he worth that money. There are better options out there far, far, far cheaper. That would be a huge mistake in my opinion.

I was only joking about not signing with the Wings for 900k. Obviously, I'd play for free. Hell, I'd probably donate my left nut to medical research to play for them.


You, my good sir, place a frightening low value on the importance of your genitals.

Kaberle to Boston...Kessel to Toronto?

Certainly seems like a possibility.
