This isn't loyalty anymore. it has crossed into the obsession area. Kind of like when parents give their adult children money out of 'love" then the children use the money for destructive behavior.

Very good deal. Surprising. Figured it would be longer and for more. But lets not look a gift horse in the mouth!

Meyer is going to be at the prospects tourney in a couple of months. A step in the right direction.

In Topic: Hoggan, Paetsch, and Grant resigned...

Which don't you understand? Bringing Paetsch back because he's up on gambling charges? Or bringing Grant back after a season in Milwaukee? If it's the former, I'm sure Holland must be banking on him being able to play, and if he can, he is a huge asset for the Griffins. He's one of their top defenders and a great mentor for the kids (on the ice, maybe not so much off...). And if it's the latter, I'm not a huge fan of this signing, but it doesn't really hurt too much either. He can be a serviceable 4th liner, chip in a scattered point and "keep the flies off" our kids. With the departure of Porter, we do need some veteran leadership in the room and Grant is a familiar face. He will likely see limited games / time on ice, so I don't see it as a bad signing...

Paetsch. He plead guilty to the charges. He is now a convicted felon. I thought that "the Classy RW's" didn't want scum bags on the team. At least that is how many on this forum react to so many players in the NHL. I would rather have a guy that throws an elbow over a convicted felon.

Less than 20 even with injuries. he needs time to get bigger and stronger. As of today he is about 8th on the depth chart at C. So no need to rush him. let him grow and develop.
