Never even heard of Adam Fox. Who dafuq?

He won the Norris last year!

Really...you don't say...yeah...no idea...first time I've ever heard his name.

I am proud to announce myself officially as the site hockey dunce.

Don't say I would never help a guy out eh Mick.
He was drafted by the Flames but refused to sign with them, so they ended up trading his rights along with Ferland and Hamilton to Carolina for Lindholm, and Hanifin. Then he ends up in NY and wins a Norris :scowl: Anyway, I'm not complaining about the return. Funny thing is that Carolina doesn't have any of the players they got in return for Lindholm and Hanifin.

Oh and J. Bracco :lol: Wasnt he going to bring toilet a cup?
Yup

Some knew it in the beginning that he wouldn’t amount to a hill of beans. Some (Doyle) didn’t.

Yeah, Forsling went on waivers twice but he's hot as a firecracker right now!

Hard to believe he's 25 already... time flies when you're having fun?

Everything's coming up roses in Florida lately, except Q of course who stunk things up on his way out.

Who will the replacement be for Quennville? I’ve heard maybe Tororella but not sure if that’s much more than a rumour. FLA seems to find these guys either late in the draft or on waivers or small trades and they turn into top six forwards or top 4 d men like Forsling, Weegar, Verhage. It’s a hell of a good team they have right now but it’s important they don’t fuck up this coaching hire.

That and the fact there was a loop hole for him because he played College hockey (don't remember exactly what the loophole was). Anyway, like I said, I'm pretty happy with the return. Fuck Fox.

Jebus, Allan Walsh has always been the type to stick the sword in someone's back - but you have to work with the NHL as an Agent. How does this help?

He is from the NY area and always planned to sign with the Rangers. Apparently he was good enough to share this plam with the Flames and Canes so that they could get something in return for him. Unlike Canadian juniors, US college players can run out the clock on the team that drafts them by waiting four years from draft day and become UFAs. Fox was at Harvard and several players that have played there have used this rule to their advantage and have become UFAs, often signing with the Rangers it seems. Last year's Canuck Jimmy Vesey (aka Jimmy Feces) was such a player at one time though today he has become mere waiver fodder.

Our own Jack Rathbone also went to Harvard which caused some nervousness around these parts but all was well in the end.
