    For some reason I thought of John Cleese, pictured here, when I read Nail was up. Can't explain it, but thought it was worth posting. o.O

    One of the Bobs: "You have been missing a lot of work lately.'' Monty at performance eval to both Bob's: "I wouldn't say I have been missing it, Bob!."

  5. The Arizona Coyotes offer our sincere condolences to our next pick and his family on the loss of their daughter who was stillborn back in february. I know first hand the tragedy and sense of loss the family is reeling from. True Grit, is not shown in what cards life gives us, but in how we rise to face what has been dealt. To round out our top six I could not be happier to select a player who will likely hold down our 2nd line Centerman job, as he has the stuff champions are made of, and most recently on his NHL club he has been dealt a great hand of supporting cards 29 year old Jordan Staal

    Pretty much at the halfway point of drafting our starting lineup. I am content with things so far, and pretty happy about the situation in fact. Average age: 25 1/2 years Ave. Cap Hit: 4.6m including a generous amount reserved for Sam Reinhart's deal. Av. Contract: 3.75 years plus soon to be added Sam Reinhart who is a qualified RFA a First Overall NHL draftee, two 2nd OverAlls, 4th, 5th, 8th and 9th, 13th and 26th all first rounders. Spiced with 89th overall, 114th and 141st. Our second goalie went undrafted.

    Lol sounds like your voting him out of the house hashpipetagbigbrother ...silly autocorrect I have never typed hashpipe ever.
  9. say his name fast threee times and i bet it comes out as clale clack at least once.
  10. BFHL 2018/19

    Yeah i found that in my research but you know, i like him as a player, bit of a fan and it occurred to me today while thinking on the run odds are good in the desert that they just didn't want to both pay him 2.5m in bonuses and still not make the playoffs yet have a worse draft pick than they ended up with. Trifecta of bad outcomes just so a kid gets a year in the bigs earlier than later. From the owners/management perspective of course...imo the player was ready from the start and would have had a superb second half of the year last year had he stuck from September onwards. Maybe I am biased though, we shall see...would love to get more use out of him than MM gets out of Ryan, hahahaha.....*damnit man save the maniacal laughter for if we win* .....

    WIth 2 and a half million of Performance Based bonuses, a part of me suspects that Dylan Strome not sticking with the club until after March 20th last year was more a financial oversight teams decision rather than a performance/grooming/development move. Therefor I see your Ryan and raise you a Dylan. History will judge either my genius or my incompetence. Dylan Strome @Captain Azzy... whoops

    LOL, you would think i would have had time to check my phone, but an hour and 20 mins, 3 mins still, drive another hour, 20 mins shopping, another 20 min drive, more shopping, then return without further ado I have to decide between the two guys I had in mind when i left...and these late round decisions are crippling.... I will take... consults notes....checks clock.. Oh hai, it is almost Wine O'Clock! With our 20th selection of the draft 318 overall i think, Dallas selects Sven Baertschi My hesitation on this was: can he put it all together and play close to 82 healthy games? If he can, he will have THE breakout season of breakout seasons. except that i may let one slide to 22nd

    I am heading to town...umm ummmm ummmmm I will take two names with me and check my phone in an hour and then every hour till i get (*i have convinced myself if i send both names to someone i won't get a chance to draft both, haha
