So why exactly then are we paying the 291st draft pick who's had five years playing in Northa America and still plays at an average level.... 3Mill per? I don't have an answer. A lot of pressure on him this year and that salary makes him a roster liability if he doesn't deliver night-in and night-out. I hope the best for Big E and would like to see him play for us for a long time though.
btw....so what age was Pronger when he played his first game in his third season? 20. Not to nitpick though. Fair point on draft position.
it's been beaten to death i think, but it is generally agreed that babcock, holland and co. have their jobs because they know what the hell they are doing. they work with ericsson day in and day out, so they probably know more about him and his potential than we ever will.
and that last point, when players that young are used it is done out of necessity. thankfully our team is not that desperate.
Here's a problem with being fat that affects everyone: It is gluttonous. Fat people don't need all that food. There are billions of people on this planet starving, and being fat and eating more than you need not only steals a meal off a starving child's plate in Africa or India, but indirectly raises food prices domestically. If you think that is ok, then you need a lesson in ethics.
you dick, just think of all that oxygen you're stealing from emphysema patients right now!
Unfortunately, much of society everywhere lacks an appreciation of how real and how dangerous depression can be.
exactly right. unfortunately i've had to deal with depression in my life and my mother will still say things like "what do you have to be depressed about?" she just doesn't understand that it doesn't work that way. it took a little while but eventually i learned that things do get better.
was it this past year he went after a fan after being ejected in minnesota? i remember thinking then that he must be struggling internally. if it is suicide...man that's just awful. 28 years old is too young to give up. tragic.
