#2570949 Steve Montador Found Dead At His Home

Not necessarily.  Rare things such as aneurysms can happen at any age. 

Lana: What's your third biggest fear?
Archer: Brain aneurysm.
Lana: What's a brain aneurysm have to do with walking around in a swamp?
Archer: Nothing, it can happen anywhere at anytime, that's what makes it so terrifying.




#2569488 Nabokov traded back to San Jose

Yeah, heard he was acquired so he could retire as a shark. Classy move, I like it.  :clap:




#2570904 Franson to Preds

1st round pick was too high a price, and with Toronto in our division, it would have been higher.

I don't remember who it was, but someone had some interesting speculation regarding any Toronto-to-Detroit trade. They said that above and beyond the traditional conference rival issues, there's also the whole "Mike Babcock to Toronto" issue as well. If Toronto wants any shot at landing Babs, they have to hope Detroit loses out early in the playoffs. As such, they won't be interested in sending Detroit any player that might help them make a deeper run, since that would significantly lessen the chances that Babcock leaves.

Bummer, I was really hoping we'd get him. Not too surprised we didn't though.


#2569363 Babcock: "HE WINS, FULL STOP" - THN

Give it a rest Frank. You're only saying that so, what? If he doesn't sign you can say, "well, unfortunately I was right", and if he does sign here, you can be "pleasantly surprised"...

 

Babcock is not going anywhere. Why would he? There are about 100 more reasons for him to stay than there would be for him to leave...

 

This is an up and coming team that is only going to get much much better over the next few seasons. He knows this. Why wouldn't he want the opportunity to coach two completely different Red Wings teams to Stanley Cups? He loves coaching these kids. Like, zombo said, he already coaches the best player in the league, Pavel mother f***ing Datsyuk. Both Pav and Hank are still basically point per game players, Nyquist and Tatar should both hit 60 points this season, and only improve on that in years to come.

 

The Red Wings as an organization is the best in the National Hockey League, hands down, the best owner, the best GM and the best coach.

 

The Wings were expected to finally miss the playoffs this season, and they're quite possibly going to win the East and have a good shot at winning the President's Trophy. But yeah, no chance he wins the Jack Adams...

 

I'll say it again, Babcock has a legit shot at winning the Adams, and he absolutely, 100% will re-sign after this season.

Don't set yourself up for disappointment.. As much as Babcock would deserve it the Jack Adams will go to one of Hartley, Laviolette or Trotz. The good thing is it doesn't really matter Babcock is in the triple gold club and by far the best coach in hockey. Mr. I will not let him walk before making a significant offer. I don't care if it's 4 or even 8 million there is no salary cup for coaches. This whole thing will come down to 1 decision does Babs want to stay or coach the best player in hockey or work for Shanahan? Money will not be an issue! It's so funny reading leafs fans thinking that 4 mill would be too much for the wings how quickly they've forgotten that our payroll was higher than theirs

 

But. He already coaches the best player in hockey.

I think he has a legit shot to win the Jack Adams this year as well. Like he's not going to have enough leverage already...

Either way, I fully expect him back behind the Red Wings bench next season.

Welcome to Buffalo Evander, here have a new tracksuit.

Jets definitely won that trade, I didn't think they would get close to that for Kane with his attitude problems.

Oh Evander...

Who would have thought that the guy seen above would have problems with maturity? I'm not buying the tracksuit in the shower story until he posts a pic of a wet tracksuit with at least 3 stacks on it.

I still think its awesome he knocked out matt Cooke.
I never wanted him on our team though
I still want byfuglien, he can throw tats clothes in the shower, for some reason I feel like tats would just walk out nekked though.


#2567905 Buffalo Sabres could go for the record

Posted by chaps80 on 02 February 2015 - 08:53 PM

I agree Buffalo deserves a break. They lost some key free agents, though most would agree Briere's best days were in Buffalo. Edmonton's mismanagement of top picks is arguably an atrocity.

 

 Edmonton's mismanagement of everything is an atrocity. Chicago and Pittsburgh seemed to have done well with their top pick stockpiles, and did it in fairly short order. Edmonton just can't do anything right. At all. Anywhere.




#2567868 CBJ's Jack Johnson files for bankruptcy

Posted by number9 on 02 February 2015 - 07:39 PM

I'm almost 25 and my parents help me deal with my money. It's not because I'm stupid, it's because they've handle their own money very successfully with minimal input from advisors. If I acquired millions I would definitely trust them to help until I felt I could make good choices with it or until I found an advisor that I trusted to work with.
Sucks that he was betrayed by his family.

 

Understood. But when you make as much money as JJ does, you need a professional to handle your investments. If you make as much as him and your parents are handling your money still, I advise you to seek a financial planner.

I trust my mother with absolutely anything I have, my dad is ridiculously smart with money, but I wouldn't trust him with hundreds of my dollars, let alone millions.
He once sold me the same car twice when I was a teenager. When I had to "buy it back" from him, I stopped trusting him, but he would never go out of his way to screw me over like this.
Its sad as hell, but its more indicative of the type of people his parents are, seeing as they screwed over his grandparents too.

And whether or not its with your parents, its good that you're smart enough to have something of a plan with your money.
Not money people our age have that much sense.

I'm not so sure why it's so hard for you to pick up on the fact that if you want your money to be safe you should give it to professionals. 

 

Also, 25 isn't that young or naive.  Stop acting like he's a child star or something. 

 

By age 25 Mark Zuckerberg was a billionaire.  And you know what he probably didn't do?  Give access to that money to his parents.  Because he's not an idiot. 

 

Mark Zuckerberg is hardly a typical example of a 25 year old, so that analogy means nothing. 

 

Actually, Jack Johnson isn't that different from a child star given how athletes are often treated when they excel at a young age.  I'm just saying I can understand not knowing who to trust, so you trust your mom to figure it out for you.  I don't feel the need to call someone an idiot for that. Naive maybe.  I just don't understand the angry reaction people have to a dude who got ripped off by his parents.
