Since he's proving to be such a good sport, I nominate Gary Bettman for the #NextTimeTheCBAExpiresStartTheSeasonOnTimeChallenge

Every once in a while for a fleeting moment, Bettman does something that makes me think he might not be the worst creature on earth.

 

Gotta give him props for doing that.

If I had a gun with two bullets and I was in a room with Hitler, Stalin, and the new chick in the Wendy's commercials, I would shoot Wendy's girl twice.

I suppose he also put something into his coffee. :P How many goals did Roy let in that night again ?

 

52 if I recall correctly. 




#2525539 Alfie informs Wings he wants to return

Irrelevant. Pointless based on their lack of knowledge. Not to be taken seriously

 

Wrong.

 

Irrelevant  (ibreve.gif-rebreve.giflprime.gifschwa.gif-vschwa.gifnt): Not pertinent to the point.  Not relating to the subject.

 

 

Here's another one:

 

Unwise (ubreve.gifn-wimacr.gifzprime.gif): being a smartass to a moderator who is politely telling you to stop insulting other people here simply because you disagree with their opinion. 

 

 

Now let's get back to making posts relevant to this the topic.

Neither was Jurco...or Sheahan.  Yet they both made us more difficult to play against than all the mediocre old hacks in the world. 


I eyeball tested Sproul, and he's not ready, trust me


#2524166 Dan Cleary may return...sigh

I'm ok with this if he plays for free and doesn't play.

#2520559 Shero & Bylsma Fired

Posted by rick zombo on 14 May 2014 - 11:57 PM

While I would think that hilarious to see Shero and Bylsma out the door, I'm secretly wishing they stay. It's become blatantly obvious that they won't win with those two at the helm, so why shouldn't we hope they keep their jobs?

I swear to holy hell, I was just thinking this exact thing. 




#2509971 Gus & Tatar almost traded to Calgary per McKenzie

Posted by WingedWheel91 on 16 April 2014 - 07:53 AM

I don't know why everyone is up in arms over this report.

 

At the time of the trade, April 1st 2013 - the Blue traded a 1st round draft pick, 22 year old Defense prospect Mark Cundari, and 26 year old Swiss league goalie Reto Berra for Bouwmeester.

 

In hindsight, I agree we certainly offered a better package with players who are contributing at a much higher level today - but understand that at the time of the trade, Gustav Nyquist and Tomas Tatar had combined for less than 10 points to that point in the season, on a team that was not in a playoff position. From a Calgary perspective, they probably questioned how much these undersized forwards would help them battle within their very tough division.

 

Did Feaster take the right deal? In hindsight, obviously not. But I'm sure at the time of the trade, with the market for Defenseman as bad as it was/is, there would have been more than a handful of members on this site who would have been on board. Funny how it works.

One the own hand, good to know he actually went after Bouwmeester. On the other hand, YEEOW that was a close one!

If this is true - which it may not be - it shows how little Ken Holland really knows/believes in his prospects. Jarnkrok is killing it over in NSH and these two are playing amazing in Detroit. You can't just go offering up young players as trade bait before you see what they can do in the NHL - its stupid. If Jarnkrok had put up 9 points in 12 games in Detroit prior to the trade his value would have been much higher and he would be valued similar to Sheahan currently. Bottom line - give prospects a legitimate NHL chance to solidify their value before you go and ship them off.

Quick, trade him while he still has value....
