#2000853 Halak traded to Blues

Posted by puffy on 17 June 2010 - 03:25 PM

Price is overrated. The Habs will regret this.

I like it rough.

Giguere has much better technique than most goalies in the league; his issues are mental. If he can get his head straight he can get back to form among one of the top goalies in the league. Furthermore, when he does have his head straight, he is one of the goalies in the league who is the kind of guy who takes the playoff pressure and comes up with his best games. Guys like Jiggy, Ozzie, Brodeur, Roy, Vernon, Hextall, etc. are examples of this while other guys have shown that when the playoff pressure gets heavy and they need to come up big for their team, they just shut down and can't do it. Luongo is the biggest name example of this type in the league right now; he has shown no ability to play his best under do-or-die pressure when his team needs it the most; instead he has repeatedly fallen apart.

Giguere is at a dangerous point in his career; he could turn it around into a great career, or he could fall apart into a washed up nothing.


Either way I think the trade was a good move from Toronto's perspective. Even if he never "gets jiggy with it" again he can still be a very valuable mentor for Jonas Gustavsson.

Is it a coincidence that Gustavssons play dramatically improved after the addition of Giguere? I don't think so.

I would have traded Jason Blake and Vesa Toskala for a bag of expired Doritos :P

I am cheering for my hot lesbian neighbor to switch teams this summer....If only she was Bisexual, then at least I'd have a chance!

I'm not sure if you're aware how overpaid and overrated Kaberle is. He's fairly good in the offensive end, but he's atrocious on defense. Don't be fooled by his seeming similarities to Lidstrom in play style; whereas Lidstrom is excellent defensively and compensates for his lack of physicality via an extremely intelligent playing style, Kaberle is a defensively-irresponsible wuss.

He's is NOT worth that sort of trade value, especially given that he has only one year left on his contract and will probably head back east after next season.

Toronto fans can't wait to get rid of him.


WRONG!!! Sorry, but as a former Toronto Maple Leafs fan I can confirm without a shadow of a doubt that the majority of Leafs fans actually love Tomas Kaberle.

The key issue here is that the team is going through a re-build! They don't want to get rid of Kaberle but they realize the fact that they NEED to in order to survive. F.Michael was correct when he said that Kaberle has 3-4 good years left and Leafs fans would be foolish to think that he will be part of Burkes "final plan".

Anyone else think Holland should call Burke concerning the availability of Kaberle if Lids retires this summer?


I'd love to have Kaberle here. Burkes asking price is going to be pretty high though.

His no trade clause is gone, so there could be a pretty huge bidding war for him.

I've decided to quit smoking today. If I seem a little bitchy and irritated in the weeks to come you'll know why :P

Montreal is easily the worst team that qualified for the playoffs. Just shows what a red-hot goalie can do.


Agreed. Without Halak that team is nothing.

#1972846 The real reason we are losing this series...

No, this is all my fault! I forced my Ukrainian mail order bride to wear a Wings jersey at all times. Once she found out I wasn't as rich as I claimed to be she ran off with an Italian dude and took the jersey with her! That was my lucky jersey, I miss it sooo much :(

Doesn't your prison friend Bubba get jealous? :lol:

Big Bubba is mad at Puffy right now.

I told Bubba to try and escape the prison Shawshank Redemption style. Unfortunately he was too fat and he got stuck in the tunnel.

Look at the bright side Chicago.................you could save 15% or more on car insurance by switching to Geico.


#1961880 More nervous by the second!

Posted by puffy on 27 April 2010 - 06:07 PM

seriously it is really starting to get to me. i cant even imagen how the players feel right now.


You remind me of Puffy 1 hour ago. Homemade Moonshine does wonders, I highly recommend it!

My parents "caught me" when I was 11 and they took me to a dr and had me circumcised several weeks later. They thought that would stop me, but boy were they wrong!

Oh yeah...Go Wings!

I'll take that bet. Whats the over/under? :D


If you are a female then it's you over and me under. I know it sounds lazy, but I've had a long day and I could really use some effortless sex. ;)
