Classic line from Thorne...

Clement: "There's even one [octopus] behind Patrick Roy; how'd that get in there"

Thorne: "Darren McCarty shot it in there, probably: Shooting everything else in there!"

Perfect response. Holmstrom's hands are very good. He can't skate for sh**, but there's nothing wrong with his hands.

Forgetting stats and reputations, the greatest line I ever personally saw was the Russian Five. The way those guys cycled the puck and maintained posession was like anything I ever saw before or after.

At times, it literally looked like a Globetrotters skit, as they made play after play, the crowd would get lounder and louder until it was basically a standing ovation.

With the way he runs his mouth, hes about lined up to take over for Don Cherry. Milbury does say a lot of moronic things, but he also makes some good (and hilarious) commentary every once in a while..

He'd be a bizarro replacement, as Milbury has been extremely outspoken about the stupidity of the bias against European players. I think, if anything, he was brought in to be a balance to Cherry.

BTW, I love Cherry; I just don't agree with a lot of his views if that makes any sence. I also like Milbury a lot as an analyst, and I wish TSN/Versus could have retained him.

I understand your numbers. And I've been over this before. When the Wings picked him up in what? 96? There were MANY FA guns on the market that would've scored goals. I'd list the players, but I am too lazy. He came, scored and went. He knows his role. It's not that big of a deal to be called a hired gun.

Sorry, I guess we just use the term differently. I don't consider someone who switches teams after 9 years a hired gun, but I guess Gretzky and Hull must fall into that category for you as well.
