Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 19-20 Sponsored by SKYO

Sens need young bodies: Stecher, Virtanen, Baertschi to Ottawa for a 2nd + 3rd. Use those picks to dump Eriksson to Detroit or somewhere like that. done deal. I like the way you slipped Bartie in there and made it still look somewhat palatable. :D For Ottawa it might be. A late 20's middle-6 winger...

I wasn't sure the NHL was going to pull this off, but kudos to the league for making it happen. Congrats to Tampa Bay - no asterisk to their Cup (unlike Reef's pool win ;) ).
Yeah. That was bush league.

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 19-20 Sponsored by SKYO

Posted this earlier, but I think the best we can hope for, other than him being a 'throw in' for a blockbuster trade is: Loui (50% retained) + 3rd round pick for future considerations (something like a 7th round pick) We loose a decent asset but get 3 mil in cap savings. That I think might be the b...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 19-20 Sponsored by SKYO

What is Loui's real trade cost. Detroit got a 2nd to take on Marc Staal, who's cap is $5.7, and cash is $3.2 (assuming signing bonus has been paid). Loui is only owed $5, and has a cap hit of $12. And, he's still a serviceable bottom 6 guy for a crappy team. Staal seems to have set the price for Lo...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 19-20 Sponsored by SKYO

Here's a question for you. If the Canucks were going to buyout his contract, how much savings would they get? I have always heard Loui's contract is buyout proof but just how bad is it? I read this the other day. Pretty sure it was less than $3M of savings, and then the impact over the following 2 ...

Re: My Truck...

I wonder why Nissan and Toyota lag on fuel economy compared to the americans on the trucks. Its defies logic. G I True. I chalk it up To They build quality. The American trucks had to come up with something to compete. The big 3 have absolutely shit resale value. And they had garbage fuel economy f...

Re: My Truck...

Recently caved and got a truck. The old F150 had 355,000 KM on it. It didn’t owe me a thing and still ran solid but I couldn’t take that beast on any more road trips. I drove a few rigs in the 15-25 K price range. Am pissed I missed out on a 2012 GMC Sierra with 120KM on it. I should have dropped a...

Re: Pre-draft & pre-free-agent day speculation

Lol it was a weak D with and without Myers. The bottom six were hemmed in their own zone the entire series which swung momentum big time. Myers is a decent middle pairing D man. You make him sound like the second coming of Chris Pronger. :lol: good ol' SL yeahhhhhhhh no. Chris Pronger? by comparing...

Re: Only 99 days

Horgan the arrogant prick is set to call an election for the fall. It would be nice if the voters got their heads out of their asses and drummed these clowns out of office. There’s absolutely no need to call an election at this time. Make this asshole pay. But they are high in ratings right now and...

Canada isn't the USA And sadly the USA isn’t Canada. You guys seem to have your shit together. Imho, it seems Canada manages to combine most of what is good in America with most of what is good in Europe, and with very few drawbacks. Well done! Well except for the fact that our electoral system gav...

Re: US Erection 12 *AND* 16 *AND* 20

What was Trump's political office at the time? None. But you don’t have to hold a political office to be involved in politics. He was positioning himself as a presidential candidate. In the end he did not enter the 2012 race, but chose to wait till 2016 instead. Probably realized he had no chance o...

Re: US Erection 12 *AND* 16 *AND* 20

Trump was in politics while Obama was in the Oval Office? Yup. In the spring of 2011, as the Republican primary got under way, Trump embraced the birther theory wholesale, wielding his trademark innuendos and falsehoods. Fox News then picked up the crusade, devoting hours of airtime to his insinuat...
