I suggested that we put Modano in for Franzen for tonight's game. I love Franzen it's just that he is injured and can't even skate out there. We were basically playing with one less on the bench for 1/2 a game.
Obviously, Babcock forgot to check LGW before the game for some last minute advice.
Buttman is an arse. First Canadian city that looks like they need a stadium, he threatens some sort of move. Meanwhile Buttman never suggests huting teams in US cities like Atlanta, & Phoenix to move. Shut the **** up!!
Okay, don't say I'm never an optimist: if Nabs is put back on waivers, maybe him refusing to report to the Isles will discourage other teams from claiming him, knowing that there's a good chance he won't play for them, either. Of course, that wouldn't deter San Hose-a from claiming him and suspending him just to tick us off, but hey, it might make other teams who want him to play think twice. File this under: It Could Happen.
If San Jose did that, they would be seen as the ultimate dick and cry-baby ... their reputation would go down the toilet for agents, players, and other GM's. McLellan won't screw his old employers like that but it isn't up to him. Wilson, you let him go so now let him sign with another team. Don't worry Sharks, you might not even make it to playoffs this year so you won't have to worry about facing us.
Wings sign Nabby ...
NJ claims him and tries to trade him and must put him on waivers
NYI claims him and tries to trade him and must put him on waivers
Leafs claim him and tries to trade him and must put him on waivers ...
x26 teams ... all the way up to the Wings and we finally sign him ...
Maybe Kenny was kind of bored today at the office ... nothing much to do, no contracts to work on. He's thinking, "If we get him we get him, if we lose him, it took me and my staff 1/2 day of work." Why not generate a bit of buzz on LGW and TSN ... to remind everyone that I am still the Jedi Master
