  1. Retro Jersey Unveil (Feb 13 vs Leafs) - Bonus Jake pics!

    The Coliseum was the best. (still is for concerts as far as stadiums go) I haven't see a tonne of games live but getting to see Adams score in overtime vs. the Laffs to send the boys to the final in '94 was special to say the least

    Gee-no! Gee-no! Gee-no! #29 FTW

    There is an advantage to using Black though in that it makes you look bigger and imparts a feeling of intimidation towards the opposition.  I don't have an issue with our current jerseys aside from that fact they make us look "soft".

  5. {GDT} Canucks vs Bruins @ 4pm PT on SNP

    it's gonna get ugly like it always does (hello Virtanen) but we owe them a spanking  
  6. I agree, generally speaking. However, I can see this possibly happening next year, depending on how the lineup solidifys and how WD manages that. I say that because Travis Green's contract is up next year and if a subpar season here next year under WD may give Linden and Benning reason enough to promote him. In 2 seasons as an AHL coach, he's already made it to the Calder Final. Also lead the Winterhawks to a Championship in 2013.  Combine that with his experience as a pro player in the NHL (approx* 500 points in 1000 games), and seeing a Conference Final with the Islanders in '93... you have a guy with a LOT of miles under him which only helps as a coach - especially the fact he played so many games as an NHL regular. That alone commands respect because you're not just talking out of your arse. WD has done an amazing job i think, if you take into account the turnover in the lineup this year due to injuries and whatnot... but we'll see.  
  7. [RECALL] - Mike Zalewski signed and recalled

    It's Edmonton though. Instead of a table loaded with bananas and gatorade, they have bowls of cocaine. 
  8. Is Prust's time up?

    he's been hooked. engaged = married. Yes hockey players are used to moving around since a very young age if they commit to playing... but their significant others 99% of the time are not. That was my point. She balled her head off when he got traded here...and if you've ever been married (or engaged) you know "happy wife happy life" ... but if she's not happy you'll never hear the end of it. Anyway, all I'm saying is it shows on the ice. Ever since he publicly stated that the kids should stick up for themselves, and then Benning came out and said we need guys to step up and protect our kids (in so many words calling him out) - he has looked disinterested and 2 steps behind.  
  9. Is Prust's time up?

    That's my point though. Yeah it "shouldn't" matter if its a successful team or not with regards to what you do on the ice. But the proofs in the pudding right? They guy already flat out said to the media that the "rookies need to look after themselves" after McCann got %$# annihilated. The job is mentally more difficult when you're on a team that's nowhere near as good as your former one - and I've already mentioned the meltdown his wife had when he got traded. I'm CERTAIN that is a constant buzz in the background.  I don't have anything against the guy but his heart (and his wife) are still back on Montreal and it shows because he's not the same player he was for them.... and if "his job is exactly the same regardless of teams he's on"... then..........

    I first saw this and thought this guy's hilarious! Then realized he actually does skate that way...
  11. Is Prust's time up?

    Right I was just gonna say this. I feel bad for McCann. Dude is watching Horvat AND Virtanen play ahead of him with guys who are WAY more skilled. Horvat has earned it but as far as raw puck handling and on ice vision go? McCann is far better in that regard than Virtanen. Not to mention his shot. .... which we haven't seen anything of the last few games cause the kids confidence is slowly being flushed down the toilet playing with a coupla bent forks.... guy has TWO breakaways last night and blows the deke on both? When he has a well known killer shot? Get him off that line or get better players for him to play with before you ruin him.

    Prust    - 6' 195 lbs - 31 years old  Dorsett - 6' 192 lbs - 29 years old  Gaunce - 6' 2" 210 lbs - 21 years old  Grenier - 6' 4"  210 lbs - 24 years old (also a right hand shot on the right wing) Cracknall - first call up. Both those guys are big and can also skate "real good". Gaunce has more hockey IQ than Dorsett and Prust combined. You want a 4th line that can actually forecheck instead of doing flybys waving sticks? and pop the odd goal? You'd not gonna do it with average sized players over 30 with lots of miles on them. my 2 cents  
  13. Is Prust's time up?

    In his defence, i think it's probably hard for a guy who is counted on to back hack/whack/smash guys... coming from an elite team in Montreal, and then expecting to do the same job on a team when the odds of winning or losing every night are 50/50. Not making excuses for him, certainly not since he's making 2.5M, but it has to play into your head.  read: "I gotta do the same job here for the same amount of money, but this sucks!" ... add to that the nagging wife.
  14. Is Prust's time up?

    This. Especially since the team has struggled since November it seems like he's not all that interested... along with comments about how "our rookies have to stand up for themselves"... Seems like a decent guy probably liked in the room but fact is he skates like a fork, can't score, and tells our kids they're on their own. $2,500,000.00 is a lot to pay a guy just to spear Marchand in the balls. Plus his wife had a near nervous breakdown when he was traded here so that likely plays into it. She's on a reality show for crying out loud - so guaranteed to be a massive drama queen.  Gaunce and/or Grenier. Do it.
