Cannot say that I blame you one bit there...
Posted Thursday March 21, 2013, About: Caps hopes could be sunk by Friday
heh sometimes it's good to have a whine, especially at someone elses expense (or should I say over-expense?).

Aww c'mon, there's no need to sling mud at the Weekly World News but pairing it in the same paragraph as the Globe and mail... I like me some "That there Space critter done stole my cow" stories!

I think you're right about Oates, Slappy, he's seems solid and it takes time to get a good rhythm in with any coaching staff. Now just to get Ovechkin to wake up to himself or go home to mother Russia (don't laugh, he might get his knickers in a wad, and run home)

Here's the rub though, I don't think Bettman can see over anyone's head... let alone be bothered to watch the product he artfully attemted to ruin just a few short months ago...

I still say he'll get 5 games (not for deserving it, even though yes, the hit was dodgy, as I said previously), but I think ol' Shanny is stuck on the number 5....

Chalk it up to being frustrated by the Stars, perhaps?

Slow news day?

Either way, like POTF says..... WGAF?
Posted Thursday March 21, 2013, About: Newest name in the Norris debate (hint: PHO)
Going from what I've seen of Ekman-Larsson, I could see why someone might make a case for him, but at the moment, I would think this is a 2 horse race between Letang, and Chara...

Volpatti and Wolski I can easily see elsewhere, but Ribiero could be a funny one, I would have a week ago said he would be likely to walk, but it all comes down to the incentives the Caps throw his way (and there is talk that it might be considerable). As for the rest, they're benchfillers I don't know what one might expect for Poti, but that could be another funny one too. As for Crabb? DL should get Ron to trade back for him for a couple of bags of pucks and a case of Molson...

The hit was dodgy, sure, but wasn't Hedman trying for a best actor award too?

Shanahan will likely cream his daks again, and suspend for 5 games, just on idiotic principle.
Posted Thursday March 21, 2013, About: The worst trade deadline ever
I imagine there will be a few moves, not many, like a D-man here, and maybe a depth forward there, but I doubt (and I say this with trepidation) there will be many, if any, blockbuster trades before the deadline.

I may be proven wrong, but this year is different, because (cue the cliche) it's a sprint instead of the normal marathon. However. I just don't see it.
Posted Tuesday March 19, 2013, About: Bertuzzi's season over?
Giving a player a broken neck is not considered egregious?
Posted Tuesday March 19, 2013, About: Cheveldayoff can see a selloff
I just don't get why Winnipeg sees themselves as sellers, unless it's just to unload cap issues... They are topping the SE Division (along with my 'Canes), I just don't get it...

Do they think they will drop off the map later on?
Posted Tuesday March 19, 2013, About: High-priced Leaf deep in the doghouse
It looks like Burke's chickens are finally all coming home to roost...
Posted Tuesday March 19, 2013, About: Staal brothers can see Marc returning this season
The goal in the second period should have been disallowed for Goalie interference... like the other end... but lopsided calls are the marks of the zebras in this league...
Posted Tuesday March 19, 2013, About: Sharks owner mum after another Sharks loss
Gummy Sharks maybe?
Posted Tuesday March 19, 2013, About: Bertuzzi's season over?
Indeed.... this pillock should have been banned for life.
Posted Thursday March 14, 2013, About: Habs, Geoffrion, agent, family mum until further notice
No, not everyone is, and having your brains possibly scrambled by another hit would make anyone thnk twice about their chosen profession. I cannot say what I would do in that situation, but like I said before, he has to make the right decision for him with all the information available.
Posted Thursday March 14, 2013, About: Corey Perry suspended four games
I couldn't agree more, a feckless and stupid call in my books
Posted Thursday March 14, 2013, About: T.J. Oshie day-to-day with upper-body injury
One would say not, but admiteedly, it took me about 5 or 6 months of reading you guys before I got a basic understand, so greenhorns without a sense of the cynicism or dry with you lads possess might find themselves at a loss...

I for one, think it's funny as all get out....
Posted Thursday March 14, 2013, About: Wild owner: 'I see a Stanley Cup championship'
There's nothing wrong with enthusiasm, but it's a fine line between that and delusions of grandeur.
