#2471139 If we become sellers...

Posted by frankgrimes on 07 January 2014 - 12:32 AM

For me, there's nothing sexy about missing the playoffs and getting a 2nd round pick from Boston for Alfie. That's essentially 50th overall or something.

I'd hope that if Quincey was worth a first even in Holland's demented state, and Gaustad is worth a first, that we could squeeze a first round pick out of some GM if we could work up a bidding war frenzy.

 

It's better than getting nothing and also part of doing the classy thing by providing someone who is on his last legs with an opportunity to win his first Stanley Cup.

Kindl hasn't played well so I'm not shocked by that, not taking Hudler although seems like a mistake.

Holland woud stand pat, say, "We like our team," and blame it all on our injuries and the move to the Eastern Conference. "Can't make the playoffs every season!" etc.

 

But I could absolutely see him doing the classy thing for Alfie (i.e. talking to him about it, asking him what he wants, and acting accordingly).

 

Agreed, I mean if Alfie has the chance to go to a powerhouse team and play for the cup I'm sure he would do it and it would be well deserved just a great player.

Well if Lupul gets a 10.000 $ fine, Myers should get 5 - 7.500 $ no stick involved and I don't think he did it intentionally.

 

I also think fines should be in % of the salary not just a fixed amount

There is no way Burke would have him on his final roster, just damage control. Poile should have apologized and leave it at that. I'm sure Ryan is.fed up enough by the insulting comments.

Once our Canadian boys dispose of your other arch rivals that is.  They need to stomp Finland like the Czech's should have before they s*** the bed.  I wouldn't call the Swedes the underdog in this tournament though.  Top to bottom they're the best team.  

 

I really hope Sweden has no suspensions.  

 

I'm not from Sweden just cheering for them, because I think winning infront of your hometown fans is epic and just like the Canadians the Swedes should get a feel of that too. But for sure not going to be butthurt if Canada wins. I've seen how Canada handled a very good Swiss team so to me - once again- they are the team to beat. Sweden is going to have even more pressure tomorrow but the atmosphere will be outstanding going to DVR that game for sure.

Sweden - Canada is going to be an epic battle. I'm cheering for Sweden because they are the hometown team and for sure the underdog, but whoever wins deserved it.

For such a small country, the amount of talent Sweden produces every year is simple amazing.

Good god I would have prefered USA Sweden, stop acting like soccer players Russians seriously

 


Me too.  He's been less than good the past couple seasons, but like you said, Buffalo is atrocious.  A change of scenery might be good.  Buffalo is a few good players away from being competitive again though.

 

Exactly and I think he could be had at an average pricetag.

I'm sure they're regretting it big time.  From the get-go, Burnside was probably drooling at the prospects of uncovering and printing some controversial info. from these meetings while Poile and Co. were too busy patting themselves on the back for giving the nation a glimpse inside the selection process for the team to realize the possible consequences.

 

Dean Lombardi and Shero managed to do their job without insulting other players, so Burke only has himself to blame for this.

Wouldn't the Russians have taunted the bench, USA wouldn't have reacted like that. Do I agree with it? No, but I understand it and it's not the first time team Russia hasn't shown any class in this tournament. I probably would have thrown a water bottle or spit at them.

 

btw. Go Sweden Go cheering hard for a Sweden - Canada final the crowd would be amazing.

McDavid is freaking 16 years old for a 16 old he has been amazing, the hype surrounding this kid is already through the roof. This kid is something special and whoever drafts him, will have a future franchise center.

If she is quiet during the game or screams during the game about calls and the fact Dano is playing plus gets you beers.

Time to purpose !!!

 

I just told mine, I'm going to pay for her new clothes if she doesn't disturb me during the game. Well worth the "investment" *gg*
