He'll be on the ballet next year hopefully. As long as he keeps doing what he's doing.

Why? He's been doing pretty good so far. I hope he will be playing hockey next year...

...what? where did i say i was a sharks fan?

Oh! You aren't? It may be very well true you never said it. However, last playoff you walked like a sharks fan and you sounded like a sharks fan, so I assume you are a sharks fan.

They were (and are) getting paid millions and millions and millions of dollars to be the best hockey players they can be and help their team win. A coach would not say anything about drinking unless it was interfering with the job they are getting paid to do. I doubt your boss would tolerate you coming in hung over on a Tuesday and performing poorly, and I bet you get paid a lot less than Mike Richards or Jeff Carter.

What are you talking about?

Have you seen them playing? Have you seen their stat?

What arguments do you think Laviolette have used to prove that drinking was in fact a problem for these guys? And that stopping it for a month would have a positive effect to their games?

These guys are professionals, they don't require babysitting. That's why they get paid whatever they get paid. The very moment they need babysitting, their price falls down. I believe they realize it very clear.

Flayers have just shipped 132 points (59 goals (~23%) and 73 assists) out, supposedly because of drinking problem... Well, it was their decision to make. I think both these guys are better off out of that organization.

...and Carter/Richards' numbers have dropped significantly in the last three years - ...

we must be looking at different stats...

... if Bab's went to Lids and Zetterberg with the same idea you wouldn't even hear about it, they would do it for a month as a team and move on. ...

Why are you so sure?! Why would Bab do such stupid thing? Why do you think Lids and Zetta would agree?

Just (try and) picture this: Scotty goes to Larionov and ask if he stop drinking his regular glass of wine every day...

Remember there is a difference between having trouble with drinking and living a normal life. If this Dry Island story is true, Carter and Richards are the only normal guys there, who would not comply with stupidity and object anyone, even a head coach, who interferes with their personal life.

...Laviolette new to a dreesing room and my two top players, not to mention "leaders" choose not to participate, I would have cursed those two f***ers under my breath for sure.

don't you think, you (if you were Laviolette) should talk to your captain and alternate captain first and then come up publicly with that stupidest idea only if they are in?

government must stay out of it as far as possible.
it is a nice try on owners side to take advantage from socialistic-leaning government, though.

#2187649 No, No, NO! Jagr interested in Detroit.

And this affects his ability to play hockey, how???

Sound like you have personal issues with him, more than his ability to play hockey.

Edit: Fedorov lost over $40 million to a crooked investor. Is he an idiot? Possibly. Did it affect his ability to play the game? Not nearly as much as aging and injuries did.

loosing to a swindler and in online casino are quite different, don't you think?

what is affecting his ability to play hockey is his age, not being an idiot. But being an idiot may and probably will affect a locker room atmosphere.

#2187646 No, No, NO! Jagr interested in Detroit.

Posted by ami on 21 June 2011 - 05:36 PM

I dont know many player that but up 80 points in the KHL... Do you???

Radulov, 80 pts = 20+60, runner up has 66 points, Jags is on 10 place with 53 points.

Jagr's stat for the last 3 years in khl is right here: http://www.khl.ru/players/13851/
2008-09: 53 pts
2009-10: 42 pts
2010-11: 50 pts

Sure, it is not exactly bad. But this is KHL. As far as I remember Radulov was nowhere near the top scoring title in the NHL. His best was somewhat around 50 points.

If, god forbid, Jagr is signed, do not expect more that 20 points out of him. If he plays with Dats or Zeta, he's going to wear them up and expect their production to go down a little.

Well, in your scenario of 15+ points (which is laughable, but anyhow) at least they'll be paying Jagr less than Hudler to do the same thing... Jagr: TONS better option than keeping Hudler.

You can keep what you're smoking, I do not indulge.

last time I checked Hudler was still in a roster. Am I missing something here? who said he's gone once Jagr's signed?

I quit smoking 7 year ago. But there is a danger for me to start drinking heavily if Jarg signs with Red Wings :)

#2187638 No, No, NO! Jagr interested in Detroit.

oh yea.... Jagr will only have 15 points haha.... thats a joke... I feel if he puts up 30-40 points at 1.5 to 2 million we are getting our money worth.

I bet you felt the same about Modano.

Signing veteran star for one year contract worked once, with Dallas Drake.

I won't work with Jagr. Because he IS a has-been, he has already won everything. He has no real motivation, except (may be) his ego, which in my books does not even count.

He has not produced as expected in KHL he won't produce here.

and above all HE IS AN IDIOT. Anyone who's capable to lose somewhat hundreds of thousands in ONLINE casino is AN IDIOT. Period.

That's all bulls***, and your whole knowledge of lawyers has been shaped by TV and fantasy...

b/s or not, I was referring to the ability to sustain such a humiliation as one of the major requirements to be able to earn 6-digit paychecks being a lawyer.

In other words, a lawyer who has a sense of conscience and honor most likely wont be able to earn such paychecks.

As per my 'whole' knowledge. It's not wise to make such conclusions that fast.
