I wouldn't dare make assumptions about their fidelity. However, I am curious about what they are claiming in the suit. Slander? Defamation of character?
As if "being a Maple Leaf" wasn't enough to defame or injure their respective characters. Personally, I'd rather be unjustly thought and adulterer, and rightfully be thought a member of, (or worse) captain of, the Toronto Maple Leafs.
I feel like this might have been taken out of context, though. Didn't Babs just say that he wanted Marchenko to play here OR go back down and play in the AHL - just not sitting as the 7th defender? I feel like NHL only used part of the quote.
No, Holland said that in a radio interview yesterday. Babs' comments here are different, but shouldn't come as a surprise considering he's made his preferences clear in the past.
Retaining half the cap is probably the only way the rags would've included duclair too.. whether they could've fit yandle under the cap or not.
Obtaining him probably had something to do with the yotes' motivation for retaining half the cap hit.
He's going to look great with domi.. and potentially one of McEichel. The coyotes have a real good chance to build a long term contender in a few years or so if they do it right.
Not after Old Man Doan squashes them with one of his patented body checks. Gotta let these little punks know you don't get anything easy on the Arizona Coyotes roster. It's Doan's way, or the broken bones way!
That was gold, someone should resurrect it. Too ironic after the tweet on TSN about Lupul that caused a stir (but probably amused Sean Avery).
Here you go...
Au contraire , mon ami: I've got Jen Murphy, known across our hockey league as The Jenerator. As a defensive pairing, our goalie once informed us that we'd gone 11 games in a row without getting scored upon. Murph is a Class IV white water kayaker. An excellent mountain biker. Restored her own 63 Volvo. Dabbles in triathlons. Is too smart to ever go out with Avery or Phanuef. And most relevantly, is a huge Red Wing fan.
Cuthbert would be fun for a long weekend, but as far as a lifetime goes, I've got the trump card.
I'm really baffled by this suggestion that guys should get playing time based on their potential and not based upon what they've earned. Teemu Pulkkinen got a look on the scoring lines because at lower levels he scored well. He's being sent to the minors because he didn't do anything with those opportunities. I'm sure the coaching staff will give him some feedback, tell him what to work on, and he'll get another shot later. But some of you think he should be given MORE opportunities and not less? That's not how accountability works.
It seems like some folks would rather see their favorite players, rather than the better players, given time. That's not how good organizations work. If you're a fan of giving promoting guys based on their potential, and not their production, I'd recommend watching the Oilers. I'm sure they need the support.
