Those three wins were pretty weak scraps. He ain’t exactly Iginla or Shanahan with the mitts off.
Perhaps, but I was responding to Danny saying he doesn't fight/is a lousy fighter.

And again: Job One is climbing inside people's heads and leaving steaming piles... not fighting.

So many Canuck fans once L O V E D this about him... but now feel they must try to see zero good (evil) in the guy.

"WAH he dumped us, WAH he doesn't love us!!!" :lol: :lol: :lol:

Fuck off y'all, you always knew he was a major asshole....

He bent the franchise over and power fucked us but so did Bure and we still love the guy. He did score a wicked goal in 2011 on the Predators before getting hurt and becoming more af a non factor

18 yr old Matthew Tkachuk deserved it but hardly got his ass handed to him by big bad Ryan. The Toews fight was barely a win but a win i guess. Both are noted tough guys i know but when you're reaching anything to grab will do :lol:

Meh I was more of a fan of his pre 2011. When he was just a young hard working player who didn’t dive and somersault all over the ice and tell everyone how great he was.

My beef with him has more to do with his cuckolding tendencies and their repercussions.

When Lou was abdicating, my vote went to Ryan.
Wonder if anything in the record books would be different?

I agree that he gets into people's heads, but those videos are not evidence that he can fight, or even handle himself in a fight. RK is a good agitator, but it's a stretch to call him a fighter, or even a lousy fighter.

I think the Leafs will either pursue Faulk or Tanev.
Almost the same money, Faulk 300k more, both 2 years left.
Faulk 2 years younger though. More points but a shitty +/-

All irrelevant most likely as I don't think the Canucks will dance on Tanev any time soon.

Leaves management and Leaves fans seem unwilling thus far to pay the price for a legit top-pairing RSD.

Instead they keep rolling with the cheapass sneaky/smarter-than-everyone-else moves.

"We'll overpower everyone with tons of offence, we'll be the reincarnation of the 80's Oilers!"

"Let's just bring in undrafted Zaitsev from Russia and overpay him in dollars/term."

"Let's just bring in Old Man stick-a-fork-in-him Hainsey and play him on his off-side until he's 38."

As a Leaves hater, I'm very happy with "the Shanaplan". :mrgreen:

The moneypuck moves don’t always work when building a team. The thing is they got the assets and the forward depth to give up a Nylander and a high pick to get a top right shot dman. If they’re too chicken to try there gonna waste their best chance at winning a cup, once the money comes due they’ll be in a salary cap hell.

Yep. It's never a bad thing to have a lot of good assets. Poor decisions (Oilers/Hall) could really screw them, but they're in a better position organizationally than a majority of the league.

Haha fuck what would we do for comedy without you guys going at it. I dont want to live in a world without it
UDL, Roberto Macenzzi the Sicilian also wanted to sign Karl Alzner and Andrew Ladd! Two contracts far worse than Loui E’s. The Sicilian likes his slow skating lunch bucket, stone hands, hockey players. Old school
Dude any defending of Loiu Eriksson whatsoever weakens your position. The guy had 7 fucking hits ALL SEASON.

Hes 6'2" 210lbs. I bet Brandon Reid would outhit him 10 years retired ffs.

Alzner and Ladd also suck but best to leave Loui out of any comparison party
Get over it... Swedes don't hit.. Biega outhiits Edler better than 3 to 1..
