  1. I love this concept it made me smile as we were locked in with all my trades I won't comment on who got the better deal until a few years from now :)...the best deals are where neither party are perfectly happy. Sad to lose out on such a century player as debrincat but happy with the three guys we got back for sure. We believe both gms got what they really wanted
  2. its like lookin in a mirror...lolz edit: also long live the North Ontario Hockey League, lol...what you got the native flu?
  3. After a Marathon negotiation with Hank Rollins it seems the Canucks have struck a fairly major/significant deal. As a side effect of that deal, and with rather shorter timelines we have made a second deadline deal in rapid succession. My thanks is to both the "soon to be announced" GM's for each of their strong traits of fairness, sticktoitness, aggression at times, and also concessions where called for. IN short my experience with both of these dudes was awesome and that is what I's appreciates abouts thems.
  4. I am a HUGE fan of Suicide Kings method of loot dispersment: in this case waiver claims...your king until you play that card...then you sui to the bottom, as god intended. lol. I also like that Vancouver is near the top and we can wait our sweet time about it. ; ) don't ever change..this is the best I have seen for overall gaming loot spreads in 25 years of gaming (4+ years in Major League Gaming too) I know it isn't totally hockey but it works and works well. I appreciate that abouts yous.
  5. Hurry back, we will try not to pass you while you are busy!
  6. I guess in the end its just lucky that LV can only steal one dude from each of us....time to start polishing a couple turds to sit next to my rosey golden apples. edit: errr thirds, i meant thirds but in Burr's vernacular.
  7. NOT MY PRECIOUS! NOES Ministersies is a filfthy hobbits he is, why he is looking at our precious we wonder. He steals it froms us, we knows it. NOT MY PRECIOUS! ...okay what happened..i just went blank for a moment..what did i say?....actually I had suspected as much all along...Joonas is da bomb, we will have tough decisions to make when the time comes.
  8. i stopped monitoring it when most people stopped loggin in ...worked well during Feb/March but then didn't for ten months..and i don't think we publicized it much last deadline...
  9. Vancouver puts in a claim on Matt Calvert. Not sure where we would stand on a list of waiver pickups....if its suicide kings list (your king till you use it, then you suicide to the bottom) then we haven't used one all year, so should be near the top....; )

  12. LMAO...too many leagues indeed, sorry folks, wrong thread.
  13. this is the league where you are beating me by just 19 points....but could tonight be my night? o.O
  14. For a few games we might get more out of them as they try to impress the new bench boss ....
  15. St wanna talk the blues? The Rangers are 23 points away and closing fast......well i guess that's why they call it the blues.
