  1. Have room for an almost maxed th9? username loganbattleaxe
  2. Wonder if they would take Burrows actually. Save them over a mil in cap and hes got fewer years left.
  3. Not for Carter. Probably for Richards. Id love to see him in blue and green. Maybe mattias straight up.
  4. I can agree with this from experience. Too often men are being bullied with these steriotypes. We have to live in fear that a woman will complain to someone that we hurt them. To the point that the abuse that a man goes through is kept to himself for fear of the ease at which it can be flipped onto him. While I believe Slavas case is pretty open and shut, I do not believe that they all are. We do not know the whole story. Not that physical violence against anyone is acceptable. Sometimes a person can be attacked many times before they strike back.
  5. Big difference is that this girl ended up seriously hurt in the hospital and the staff called the police. Last time Varlies gf went in without a bruise on her saying he threw her through three walls and ripped off her arm and beat her with it. The NHL made the right call in both cases.
  6. I think its his speed that is helping the first line. Id keep him with Henrik and Burrows and try Kesler with Daniel and Kassian. Daniel has to start skating and Kesler needs a passer. If not Kassian on the right then try hansen.
  7. Look at it this way, Kassian has 4 goals in 15 games with almost no pp time and on the 2nd line as much as he is on the 3rd and 4th. Kane has 6 goals in 18 games on the pp 28% of the time and splitting time on the 1st and 2nd lines. Kassian has 12:25 mins avg on the ice, Kane has 21:33 mins avg on the ice. It is more than likely that with the 3 games on hand and 10 more minutes a game that Kassian even though he is on the 2nd/3rd-4th would be out scoring Kane. I don't doubt that kane would have more points though. Kassian at best has been centered by santiorelli but has been centered by welsh and schroeder just as much. Kane has been centered by little and jokinen who while not the best players are still better players. I'm not saying Kassian is better than Kane but I am saying that Kassian could help mitigate the loss of Kane.
  8. I saw it on page 2, the only trade that makes sense for both teams is, Edler, kassian and a pick of no more than 2nd for Kane Winnipeg solidifies their defense. Id say it probable gives them the best d in the league. Kassian is a project player who will probably never be as good as Kane but who will probably end up a perennial 20-25 goal scorer with size and snarl. Torterella said Kassian needs to look no further than Higgins as a role model. I'd say he would have a better one in Andrew Ladd. Edler hasn't played well for us but he would still be one of the better puck movers on the team. He's still young and has alot of winning experience which means alot on a middling team. I'd say Winnipeg is better for this trade and Vancouver is too.
  9. Torts sure is the biggest name out there so that must mean he is the best. I'm sure the fact that all the skill players who have played under him have had bad years by accident. I'm sure Gaborik who was great with the wild and looks like his old self on the blue jackets didnt suck in ny because torts didnt know how to play a fast paced skill game. I'm sure Richards who was playing at almost a point per game in dallas hasn't swiftly declined because of torts style. Hey I think the Sedins killing penalties and blocking shots will be a great boost to our offense. If we are looking for consistency then Torts is totally our guy. I mean just look at the teams he has coached in the past. Consistency from his players has never been an issue. Can I stop being sarcastic now? Do the torts lovers understand yet that not only is he a terrible candidate but gillis is not the type of person to bring someone with a personality like that into our locker room? I'm just done talking about it so next person I see post garbage about the team just needing someone to motivate them the way torts did in ny, I'm going to troll until they stop watching hockey and go back to watching big brother rer runs.
  10. Maybe Marts with Robinson as the assistant. I think he is just the type of individual gills is looking for.
  11. Oh snap he speaks english.
  12. Here is one off in space. Pär Mårts. I doubt any of you have heard of him. He just coached sweden to their gold medal win with the sedins. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P%C3%A4r_M%C3%A5rts Awards [edit] Gold medal as assistant coach at the 1992 World Championships. Silver medal as assistant coach at the 1993 and 1995 World Championships. Bronze medal as assistant coach at the 1994 World Championships. Olympic gold as assistant coach in 1994. Elitserien playoff winner as head coach for HV71 in 2004. Swedish Coach of the Year in 2004. Silver medal as head coach at the 2008 and 2009 U20 World Championships Bronze medal as head coach at the 2010 U20 World Championships Elitserien silver medal as player in 1978 Seems like a good coach. Was a hell of a player. Only problem might be if he didnt speak english. If Gillis is serious about playing a skilled team next year then he might be able to get that team off the ground.
  13. Raymond Shroeder hansen has been one of our most effective lines all season. Can't see AV not using it. Seriously Sedin Sedin Burr Roy Kes Kass raymond shroeder Hansen Booth Lappy Higgins. When healthy we have a very deep team.
