MCP... how are you lined up for tix already!?! Do you have Blades seasons, and get first dibs? Any way I could "bribe" a few out of you? I'd be up for a Nucks Meet and Greet, Toon Town style.

which, by the way MCP. We oughta hit up Joe Dogs or Fox and the Hound for a game this year.

Kris Beech! #7 to Washington.

The difference with Heatley and Alfreddson would be that it is generally accepted that those guys would put up similar points with other linemates, whereas the Sedins need each other. There's only one way to find this out of course, by breaking them up, I wonder how that would impact these numbers. ...

Playing with Stats: What is the actual value of the Sedins?

There is a thread on CDC that mentions somebody "hearing from somebody I know who heard from somebody I know (right :roll: ) that ATL was thinking of trading Kovalchuk for the Twins. I could care less about the validity of the rumour, but it got me thinking because it brought up the whole debate aga...

Well, it's been a craptastic week. I've hardly even been able to concentrate at work, and my wife is a little choked that I've been so grumpy.

However this is really fun to watch... :) Steve Bernier goals, anyone?

well, at the very least, nearly every mock draft I can find has Hodgson going ninth, with one mock up pegging him at 10 to us, and a few having him at 7 to the Leaves. Been awhile since we picked the consesus pick!

Yeah clam, from the hunting ive been doing for the last hour, it appears as though he has good skating, just not the fastest guy in the world. No problem. Maybe we can hire Bure in the front office to teach "power skating"? I've read nothing negative, or worrysome. I don't really care if he doesn't ...

good thing I checked - I was just about the delete mine, thinking you had gotten here first :) Did you ever get a chance to see him play? I've heard his name floated a few times, and in more than one mock draft he went higher than 10, so for the first time in a while, we've not gone "off the board" ...

#10 First Rd:Canucks Pick - Cody Hodgson, Brampton Battalion

discuss. I'm ok with the pick, I guess. I think I'm more frustrated that Cammalleri only went for essentially the 17 pick, and that Jokinen went for so little (compared to the Sedn demand at the deadline). Could we not have pulled off one of those deals? As far as Hodgson goes, I know nothing about ...

sigh... it's all over now - even picked up on the CNN front page, and as Alanah over at canucksandbeyond mentions, it is starting to shift away from Luc and towards athletes and bikes.

But that's irrelevant. THIS sucks. Heartbreaking on all kinds of levels...

dude... talk about wide open, eh? Personally, I'd go for #1. Sure, Istanbul can make you super rich, and the pace and pressure might be fun to thrive on for a time, but it precludes you from being able to build relationships, and have some semblance of balance too. You'd do some crazy networking wor...

I'd rather wave money in the face of Mark Streit. Won't have to pay the kind of coin that it would cost for Cambell, and you still get the puck movement and power play help.
