Mantha is a beast and it makes me so excited seeing a guy like this in the pipeline, I could almost pee my pants

Memorial Cup Val d'Or vs London Knights  is on Sportsnet tonight. Griffins play tonight as well. What a dilemma.

One on the computer, one on the t.v.?

#2520758 Blashill named AHL Coach of the Year

Posted by Euro_Twins on 16 May 2014 - 08:40 AM

Maybe he's just been given great talent by Holland...


#2520607 Shero & Bylsma Fired

Posted by Euro_Twins on 15 May 2014 - 08:35 AM

Wasn't Shero just last year being touted as one of the best if not the best gm?

Not by me. Their philosophy of trade all your prospects and picks to win a cup now hasn't worked for them and I never believed that it would

#2520409 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

0/10, not enough Hampus. Needs more Melen.

Agreed more melen needed indeed. I just wish all our guys had a little more hampus melen in them.. wait, that sounds wrong and dirty... I like it

#2520354 WCSF : (7) Minnesota vs. (5) Chicago Blackhawks

Posted by Euro_Twins on 14 May 2014 - 07:25 AM

Chicago looks like we did in 08/09
Boston looks like Pittsburgh in 08/09.............................

So Chicago is better but Boston gets a lot of help from the refs?

#2520177 Will Mantha join GR after the QMJHL playoffs?

The rule that you're talking about is for NHL players joining the AHL. In their case they have to be on the AHL roster on the day of the NHL trade deadline.
You'll see a bunch of teams making paper transactions at the deadline to make age and contract eligible players available for the AHL teams should the parent NHL franchise be eliminated.
There is no such rule (from what I can find) that applies to major junior players joining the AHL when their CHL season is over. Based on the transfer agreement they seem to be perfectly eligible to play.

This is exactly the truth. People keep ignoring the various posts explaining this exact thing and saying he can't play cause he wasn't in the ahl. It's not true though.

I hope the rags can complete the comeback, I love it when Pittsburgh implodes

#2519987 Now some gritty forwards.

To bad for us, Maroon is becoming very expensive. He is having an awesome playoffs....

#2519944 Wings have the #1 & #2 most overpaid players (per point) in the NH

Not true.  He's really good at "an integral part of the game", as fight fans will tell you ad nauseam.

I'm a fan of enforcers and even I'll say it, he sucks at hockey. We've had plenty of our own enforcers over the years, bit they could also chip in offensively from time to time.

I would thank him. One is real life the other is hockey, two totally different things. 

Hockey. Is. Life.

Ya but Weiss was injured all year, even while he was playing. Sammy was just a terrible contract from the beginning, everyone but Holland knew that

I would literally throw up everywhere then torch Holland's house

#2519410 Why not sign Ryan Miller?

No. Just no

#2519380 The Franzen Hate.

Posted by Euro_Twins on 06 May 2014 - 09:41 AM

Simple.... because you DON'T ever let a proven player like Hossa slip through your fingers EVER!!!! He is a career superstar! Franzen at the time looked like he could be but was still relatively unknown.... Worst Ken Holland mistake to date in my opinion.
Hurts even more because we know first hand that even when Hoss isn't scoring he is a wicked defensive player as well where Franzen is completely invisible and contributes nothing in his very loong down periods

Lol. Hossa is good. He's no superstar though. People around here act like we let ovechkin walk or Crosby. Let it go!! 5 years
