Give that salary to Robin BigSnake, who will gladly report to GR.  

I always wanted a big snake wings jersey.

Did he hit his head or shoulder, hard to tell

Looks like pretty much both at the same time per these frames

Raffi Torres always reminded me of Dutch from Karate Kid so thats why I never liked him.

goalies Mrazek and Howard have played in three preseason games each. Howard: 2.00 GAA and .943 SV%; Mrazek: 2.38 GAA and .929 SV%


Just read this, I'm sure some of you have as well. Just thought it was interesting.


For the record, I'm a fan of both, but really like Howard, and feel kind of bad for him last year, so I'm hoping he can still hopefully pull it out, and extend his career.

I think you would have to look at the competition as well meaning that some teams like we did ran all rookie kids on some games and some had a lineup like Chicago did with a big part of their main roster rolling. So not sure if its worth breaking that down but I would be curious to see which goalie played against which players for those nights.

That was just off the top of my head.  The main point is that a top four defenseman, even a stay at home guy on an expiring contract, always has value to a team wanting to make s push.  Look at Jeff Petry a year ago. 


Anyway, I'm not going to say anything more about Byfuglien.  I've beat that horse to death.  I think it makes sense for both teams, and it would be easy to do without losing anything we couldn't live with/don't need to lose anyway. 

I have always wanted Byfuglien so I approve of that one for sure.
