#2627565 Chicago re-signs Seabrook; 8 years, $6.875 AAV

At this point you are flaming and trying to instigate

You insulted his ability to have an intelligent conversation, and told him "not to poke the bear" or "rattle the cage", yet you feel like he's the one instigating?

WTF? Finally the first preseason game I can watch and it's not being televised?!
Eat a bag of dicks.

Every three months I have to go to Seattle to get poked and prodded, masked and tubed, for my ALS checkup.

We always reward ourselves with eating a bag of Dick's. :-)

Lids played a lot of hockey, minutes, and games. Just remember that

Hawks have a good back end pairing and their team is pretty much built like the Wings were years back.

Yeah, but lidstrom was on a completely different level.

This is a great deal for one of the top defenders in the game:
Seabrook has to be one of the most underrated defenders in the game, he may not be flashy but he does everything so damn well and allows Keith to take some risks. So all in all a pretty good deal for the Hawks, he would have easily gotten something like 8x8 on the open market.

I would say it's something like Weber, Suter, Doughty, Keith, Seabrook, Pietrangelo, Hedman

I think you have to include Subban and Karlsson on that list. Probably Ekman-Larsson and Letang above Seabrook too.


That deal is probably a good one for both sides.

That is not a fair assessment either as the goals that were scored were on the Hawks prospect goaltender

We had a prospect goalie play half the game. Additionally you can look at the shots on goal. Detroit outshot (10-4)  Squad A in the third period and mitigated their defense.


Like you said yourself. A vet team wouldn't have given them as much space right? So then how come Chicago's vet team let our prospects shoot 38 times on them? Seems like they had plenty of space to me. 

The game ended with Detroit 38 shots on goal and Chicago with 37! Not to mention we took one more penalty than they did. 


Everything here points to the fact that our prospect team held its own against the Chicago squad A team (most part). I've yet to see how our prospects can't handle it. You can argue that "well it was Chicago, I bet if it was Pittsburg's squad A then prospects would have sucked" 


My response is that Chicago won the stanley cup and so on paper they ARE one of the best teams in the NHL. Can't get a better challenge than that.

No GDT yet, and the lines thread seems to have disappeared, so uh... I'll just leave this here...

#2627433 Kane case headed to grand jury

Let's wait for the justice system to rule out what happened before we assume she's just after a pay cheque.


This. We don't know anything. (And as rape cases often go, we peobably never will.) Maybe there is other evidence and/or witnesses. Maybe the rape kit was analyzed before it got into the mothers hands. Innocent until proven guilty also applys to the girl.

Hell, have you ever seen the ESPN 30 for 30 documentary "Broke"?  Many professional athletes have been targeted by people who want nothing more than to get a piece of their bank.  If that is what is happening here with Kane, then he should consider himself lucky if he isn't prosecuted or found not guilty.  This woman probably saw a mark and is trying to extort money from him.  Heck, just like the 18 year old model who tried to extort a couple hundred grand from Jagr, these cases are not isolated.
He should be very wary now that he signed that insane deal.


That model tried to extort $2,000 from jagr not a couple hundred grand

amato, I do agree that that line has looked great in camp / preseason so far, but I'd rather see if Larkin and Mantha can gain some chemistry down in GR this upcoming season. Who's put on the other wing doesn't really matter to me, whether it's Athanasiou, Bertuzzi, Miele or whoever. I just want to see what Mantha can do on a line with Larkin all season. It wouldn't hurt for some of Dylan's work ethic to rub off on Anthony. Although it seems that Mantha really is willing to put the work in off the ice, he still seems to lack that drive and intensity every shift.

Rivalred, did you happen to notice our roster? We didn't exactly have a "star" studded roster by any stretch either. It would haven been cool to see what Larkin's line could have done up against Crosby though...

Eouanno, the accuser lawyer provided the brown paper bag to the mother.. that seems sketchy. He could be in trouble for that.

The media is now blaming the DA for the media circus going on? lol what a joke.


The DA is on point! Has all his facts in order.

My understanding is that the mother was given the 'hospital' bag by the RN who gathered the evidence for the rape kit.


Hamburg PD went to the mother's house; there the police collected the shirt that the accuser had worn when the alleged crime took place, and placed said shirt in a police evidence bag, and the mother kept the 'hospital' bag that happened to have the accuser's name, the RN's name, and the address (not sure if it's the accuser's, or mother's address).


This bag then ends up at Eouanno's office when the mother claims she found it at her home between her storm door/front door.


It's more or less a hoax.

That lineup is deep, the thing that scares me is what happens when Datsyuk comes back. I just hope Jurco or Pulks aren't on the 4th line but I don't see how they aren't. Kind of disappointing with all the depth.

Can't be disappointed with this depth.  When injuries start happening we'll be happy to have it. 


Andersson and Ferraro are ultimately getting waived.  No big loss if either are claimed.

Helm can be an asset moving up and down the roster in any spot.  Would rather see him on the fourth line with Glenny and Miller.

If Jurco and Pulks are pulling their weight, and unless Franzen is tearing it up, I don't see why it wouldn't be Franzen sitting in the press-box. 

Wouldn't be bad to have him rotate in and out as necessary... give him and his noggin a rest every so often.

How the hell can people still suggest that Pulkkinen is one dimensional? He literally scored 3 completely different ways the past two games and not a single one of them was using his "holy slapper". His goal against the Hawks, he crashed the net and batted in a rebound. His first goal against the Pens was a wrist shot from the left circle, perfectly picking the top corner. And the second one last night was on a breakaway, picking the fivehole... Pulkkinen can and will score in a multitude of different ways, but not only that, he is an extremely good passer. Per Khan on quotes from Blashill... "Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill coached Pulkkinen in Grand Rapids and said he's more than just a sniper. "I told him that" Blashill said. "When he comes up here he feels pressure to shoot the puck. He can make plays too, and he's going to have to do that." He's not terrible defensively either. He's probably not going to win any Selke's, but I personally wouldn't want him to. He's got the confidence of the coach and there's not a question in my mind that he will be in the lineup on opening night. In my opinion, he's no more "one dimensional" than Tatar, and he's a fan favorite...

I'm not usually one for lofty predictions on prospects, but Larkin is definitely setting himself up for the C as soon as Z is gone. These are exciting times.
