Ferraro has lost the plot. Just be humoured by him.

Good one. That would totally make sense.

No i got Fuckin right hammered up last night at the bar in faro yukon and the table of pisstanks were all canucks fans. One of them said his uncle or something was connected to someone somewhere...lol. Hes from van... Enviro engineer assessing how to clean up this mine mess.

Anyway apparently his uncle said thats what the team is doing.

So...like...i believe him and shit
This is the most post for this thread!

Fuck the realtor rumour sources (Gaborik buying a house fuck off, Loui selling his house...Ya sure).

Give me the drunk guy in Yukon's uncle any day! Frickin e5!
He was very convincing.

Plus he bought way more shots than anyone else which makes him a totally reliable source.
buying drinks always increases the truth in what the buyer is selling

With the Seattle Expansion draft looming, onevof Demko or Markstrom is getting traded, just not sure trading Demko now is wise unless they feel this Keilly kid can step in. Travis Green is quite high on this Keilly kid. Buffalo needs a goalie. This drunk Klondike Aphrodite UDL is crawling in bed with might not be so Charles Bukowski lunatic drunk as we might assume

So yet another RHD to Buffalo

... does this mean we're getting Risto? :thumbs:
Thats the plan ;)

A little birdie told me
A deal around Demko?
So a right side of Biega(first pairing obviously), risto, Myers? I like that.
W.T.F.; RISTOLAINEN ? What goes the other way in a trade? Demko? Great pick by JB---why would he ruin it with a d-man with a plus/minus;
http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/pdis ... pid=139048 of millions?
Myers; worth what his current contract is /was paying him and not a penny more
Biega is a sound #8
What kind of a dinosaur judges players by their plus/minus in this day and age? :lol:

Okay, it's true that Risto's modern fancy stat numbers are also poor.

But fancy stat numbers have been discovered to be somewhat flawed.

Risto is a young offensive defenseman who often screws up defensively

... as young offensive defenseman are prone to do.

I see a lot of the hardcore Sabre fans saying he has been set up to fail.

He has been used a ton in defensive situations with the wrong partner on a bad team.

Dat dere along with being a young offensive defenseman

... is gonna fuck up some of your fancy stat numbers a fair bit.

Put him with Edler and watch him fly. :mex:

And you know Dickie was making fun of Biega/MS right...

RISTOLAINEN; His +/- can be fixed by situational coaching. He's an awesome talent.
Pure strength wise, he's right up there with Myers.

He has a contract. It's meh. Decent pay for his first real one. 5.4 for 3 more years.

In comparison to other teams, do we have the means?

The way I see it Sabres need a goalie of the future and we can offer that in Demko.

We're gunna hafta give up one of Marx/Demko by the expansion draft.

(DiPietro can be our goalie of the future)

Sabres also need a winger or two, let's make them take Baertschi or no deal.

(I actually think Baer is on a fair contract when healthy)

Demko + Baertschi for Risto, gitterdun...

Scary on Demko but I'd do that. Baer is a scary guy :sly:

Have to think thats not fair value from a sabre point of view. Theyll want something else...maybe a skater with upside? Lind...gadjovic...maybe a d prospect.

Demko, prospect and baer.

Demko alone should be enough to land Ristolainen, but it’s Jimbro. He’s generous, he has no patience for the haggle, “let’s just getterdun so I can have brunch at Ricky’s”

The day before July 1st and as of this morning the #Canucks are still in the mix to land F Gustav Nyquist.

Just dive in and worry about the fact you can't swim later.

Goalies never seem to have equal value as skaters. Thats why rickys buffet needs to top up the offer in time to get back to his jim bennies

Of all the ufas this player holds the most value to me. He would really boost the top 6. The only way it works though is if theres a taker for one of our overpriced underacheivers before training camp
