Yeah no, a tweet from Twit Pratt ain't gonna do it for anyone.

If the rumour had any validity whatsoever, the big boys would be running with it by now. Image

This is essentially what every reasonable poster has been saying throughout this thread.

We don't see Benning parting with the 6th and Horvat for the 1st overall, it's too much for Reinhart. It's no secret Tallon is looking for vets on defense, we have some that may be willing to waive to play in FLA.

Tallon may have started with the 6th and Horvat, but it's like any negotiation - start high and work your way back to what you actually expect!

I'm amazed that you would own up to that! :D No, you must be punished more, so I won't be deleting it. (yet)

Your use of proxy servers is clever, though.

Despite the fact that he has won 2 Cups, I really don't know why you have Toews mixed in with that collection of names.

Reinhart could very well end up being a guy who belongs in a category with Toews. Reinhart's junior numbers are better than Toews' were. Toews simply tore it up in Midget AAA, but then in WCHA he was barely more than a 1.0ppg player. Since entering the NHL he's below the 1.0 ppg mark. Reinhart has been slaying it for the last 2 years in a tougher CHL league, this year he had 105 points in 60 games (1.75 ppg) on a relatively weak team. His junior numbers are on par with Nate MacKinnon's and Connor McDavid's.

I'm not trying to slag Toews, he's one of the best leaders in the game, and a truly exceptional 2-way forward. His compete level is among the highest, and I would have him on my team in a heartbeat (even though he's a bit of a whiner). But watch the Hawks next year, or reflect on this year. The Blackhawks feed off of Toews, he is the engine of that team, no question. But Kane is the guy who steers the bus. When Kane is going, the Hawks are next to unstoppable. Things just happen for them. They can still win when Kane is mailing it in, but they dig deeper and the games are closer. Toews belongs in a category with guys like Getzlaf and Kopitar.

If I were you ... that would mean I have been responding to my own "own" posts and PMing myself for the past few months.

So, this post by Canucks' Suite "owner", herb:
makes, some really good sense, eh?

To the CC Confessional:

Forgive me CC, for I have sinned.

I, Strangelove, spend hours daily on http://archive.org/web/ searching for old posts and flame wars from "the other cc", so I can pretend it's still, duh 2004.

Living in the past is all I do.

Ergo, my main of Strangelove account needs to be also deleted to truly save myself, which will help me, duh, move forward to get the intense psychiatric help I truly require. :mex:

Well, it takes two to tangle. Ergo, it's the never ending flame war between two wash up, has been posters that have spanned across the centre and in the corner. :mex:
