#2256608 Tomas Tatar

Posted by pockets on 14 February 2012 - 05:02 PM

I'll explain why without going into stats. The fact Tatar is NHL ready is what makes him ranked above Calle, Teemu and others. Nobody knows if those others will even be NHLers yet, just b/c you dominate lower leagues, doesn't mean you are going to call all the way.

#2231053 Wings are soft as hell.

Sure the wings could use more bangers, it would be nice. BUT I wonder how many of the ppl who support bringing in a player like Avery or Carcillo complain about Bert taking dumb penalties. In the end the wings may and more then likely will need a real banger type but unless its someone who fits with the team (which I dont think includes Avery or Carcillo) or our PK suddenly becomes top 5 worthy they shouldnt just take anyone for the sake of adding toughness, grit, banging or whatever lingo you use to describe a player of that type

#1915901 Ovie ejected

Posted by pockets on 14 March 2010 - 07:51 PM

i see alot off people saying that Ovie should be the face of the league not Sid.

here is the question who do you want to rep the NHL if your the boss you've got

Ovie: Great player arugably the best but he tends to have lapses in judgement and he doesnt always show concern for other players. Some ppl even say he is borderline dirty

Sid: another great player but he is a bit of a whiner and he doesnt always show respect for other players

and youve got to remember you have to attract new fans so i really dont think at this point in both their careers neither is the optimal choice to market

So i say Bettman should market Lebda. Lebda action figures FTW
