Re: Your chance at fame!

I hope this doesn't reflect the town's financial health.

Wonder if the local roads are being paved or if pavement is being replaced with gravel.

Re: Winchester to sign with VAN

Fred wrote: Bitz, Mancari, Pinizzotto, Archibald, Duco and now seems likely Winchester. Certainly Sturm isn't in that category.
The first group might be called the goonies.

To be fair, Winchester had some 1st line and PP experience with Anaheim, just not too successful. At 30 what you see....

Re: Winchester to sign with VAN

More info is good, like GP, ice time, and injuries.

Interesting, but he was -9 in 19 GP with Anaheim, at about 7min/game. Another project ?

Re: Plot behind the Carter & Richards deals thickens

The Flyers aren't making them out to be "bad" guys....Richards and Carter are doing that to themselves. Their behaviour may improve in a new environment. Being split up, and placed in a mature group would help. However, the fact that these guys are major players may make it difficult to influence t...

Re: Cap Floor & Mr Ballard

To be fair, when I got my wisdom teeth taken out my face was all red and puffy too. MG must be running out of wisdom teeth. Although my heart did skip a beat with the thought of Baumgartner dressing came up. I was contemplating impending doom. It arrived, but in a different form. The injured Ehrhof...

Re: Cap Floor & Mr Ballard

Ya funny how AV's 'earned icetime' philosophy only applies to certain players. When pointed questions show up, MG and AV have their media schtick down pat. :roll: MG makes a face like he is at the dentist, then explains how it's all part of the master plan. AV goes into his ah shucks, chuckle, that...

Re: Plot behind the Carter & Richards deals thickens

I would think that every GM knows Luongo is untouchable - he has a very-specifically structured contract with tradeable windows in years 5 and 7, and its clear that he is the cornerstone of this Canuck "window" (I'm a big Luongo booster, fyi). If he were on the market, there's no question every GM ...

Re: Plot behind the Carter & Richards deals thickens

Carter particularly at that cap hit is attractive, but they both don't fit MG's MO (or the MGMO) of the kind of people he wants in this organization. While the cap likely won't continue going up by leaps and bounds, it is going to continue to go up, and by the time Carter hits what should be his pr...

In the long term, I agree, but I don't think of Phili as a contender anymore.

Re: Plot behind the Carter & Richards deals thickens

Just being healthy is an improvement, plus sturm may surprise us and I don't think gillis is done. May take to february..but he aint done. Imho. Most teams start healthy, but contenders need enough depth to carry them through the play offs. I was hoping Gillis would have an opportunity to take adva...

Re: Plot behind the Carter & Richards deals thickens

The deals are a month old, the reason for them isn't (storey from phili paper dated today). At first I thought of this as a storey about rich, spoiled hockey players. Then I thought about how our club has not improved since the play offs, and missed opportunities. Doesn't an arm chair GM's job inclu...

Plot behind the Carter & Richards deals thickens

Apparently Carter & Richards suffered from the same ailment as Shane Obrien. Both players' output dropped a bit in the last couple years, but they have plenty of talent. Phili's return on these trades never quite made sense to me, until now. Carter & Richards were cornerstones on a contending team....

Re: Why not Kovalchuk instead of Parise to Vancouver?

just say "no" to Kovolchuk
Agreed. We don't need an inflated contract, or another inflated ego.

Re: The Great Depression: Anyone else still feeling down?

....feeling down....
No, summer is a fine remedy for some things.

Canucks fans were understandably cranky after the finals. A few fools participated in the riot.

It's time to look forward and learn from the past. There are scores to settle.
