#2031804 Meech on waivers

Posted by MacK_Attack on 08 September 2010 - 12:58 PM

Agreed, there's no room for him here, but the guy deserves a chance to play night in and night out in the NHL... good luck Meech! I don't know why, but I imagine him ending up in Philly... no rhyme or reason behind that, just a gut feeling...

I don't think Philly needs a 9th defenceman.

#2031512 NHL.com ranks Hockey's best by their numbers.

I have no idea how they picked Satan over Hossa. And this comment is strange "by far the highest scoring player ever to wear number 81." by far? Really? He and Hossa actually have the same number of goals and Hossa actually has more points. Hossa has also played over 200 fewer games.

Hossa wore #18 in Ottawa, Atlanta & Pittsburgh though.

Kind of a difficult topic because Chelios is apparently the best to wear #24, but arguably spent his best years wearing #7 in Chicago.

#2026455 Kaberle stays in Toronto

You mean 6 plus Jeff Finger and a pylon... I mean, Brett Lebda

That's actually a pretty damn good top 5... I still can't believe they signed Lebda and for that price, one of the worst signings of the off-season and they will regret it BIG time when he's in the press box, eating up cap...

Don't underrate Gunnarsson. He was better than most of those guys last year at times. Steady and reliable. He's got that Swedish poise.

#2023424 Cheli is back!

Chelios talk taking Det front office job is a tad premature. A deal has yet to finalize and I'm told he's still contemplating other options


#2012568 Brett Lebda signs with Toronto

Posted by MacK_Attack on 08 July 2010 - 11:04 AM

True and could not care less versus could care less. Although I suppose that one is a little more advanced.

Standard line anytime somebody "could care less"...

If you could care less, you probably would.

For some reason, a common error I see is the word "loose" being used for "lose"

And of course, confusion between "resign" and "re-sign"

Any confirmation on this one? I left for a while and don't feel like scrolling through the TSN frenzy.

Nothing on their tracker list.

It was confirmed by Hedberg's agent.

Tambellini signs Tambellini :hehe:

No, he didn't?

Jeff signed with Vancouver.

New Jersey out of the running for Kovy. LA trying to close the deal.

Dean Lombardi says he's not close to signing Kovalchuk and isn't sure if he's even in the running.

Kings may have just traded for a D man


Can't think of any other big-name defencemen that would be available.

#2007437 Versteeg a Leaf

imo Stalberg is a little overrated. Not to mention Chicago gave up one of their better prospects in Sweatt.

He never recovered, confidence wise, after getting caught in the Volchenkov tracks early in the season. Played scared the rest of the way.

I'm glad the Leafs were able to get a top-six forward without moving Kaberle. Still have that chip to play.

#2007425 Versteeg a Leaf

Posted by MacK_Attack on 30 June 2010 - 10:05 PM

Bill Sweatt was very impressive in the NCAA with Colorado college, he's got fantastic speed and very good hands.

He was quite dynamic when I watched him, he might even be able to jump right into the line up.

Sounds like Stalberg, to be honest.

Stalberg has blazing speed, decent hands but wouldn't go into the corners. That was the kiss of death for him with Brian Burke. Stalberg plays too scared. Get got popped by Volchenkov early last season and never got his confidence back.

Don't know what to think of this one.

Leafs gave up some intriguing prospects (except for Paradis - he's not much) but get back somebody with Cup experience and some talent to boot in Versteeg. I don't know a damn thing about Sweatt.

#2003391 Bufyglien traded to Thrashers

Posted by MacK_Attack on 23 June 2010 - 04:56 PM

To give credit where credit is due, Eklund had this trade before anybody else.
