  1. I believe that they have a bounce back year this season and preform well. After their contracts are up, they'll sign one year deals till they choose to leave the game. Their next deal will be more than the consensus amount the majority of CDC'ers believe that they're worth, but it will be fair money for what they currently provide. It'll be bedlam on these boards when they sign for 4 & an half. I'd still see that as being fair, even if they play third line minutes. The true value they provide would never be known by anyone who doesn't share a locker room with them. I believe, moving forward, their leadership and core values will resonate in that room for at least a decade after they've retired.
  2. Yes, I went, very enjoyable! Two drink tickets and a food voucher + frees snack all around the concourse. Props to ownership for footing the bill. First class. game was fun, Petterson was a step ahead of everyone very very skilled.
  3. To those who dis the Team non stop, keep doing your thing : ) I love reading the different opinions! It makes for great discussion. I'm on board, I like what the management is doing, I see the light.. the tunnel is not too far. {rose coloured glasses}
  4. As a STH I'm stoked! I'll love reading this board, Ericsson pots a bunch of goals before Christmas, #22 & #33 have bounce back years and we have a competitive team I'm happy! lets be real, I know where this team's at.. but it's not as doom and gloom as a lot of the posters would tell you. The new additions will compliment our blue & green. Should be fun to watch!!! Love the signings!! Good work : )
  5. In regards to Ferraro's comments & futhrrmore, as someone who goes to all home games, just win baby! It has an affect on team moral and gives us promise for the future! I like this signing, put pucks in the net is the MO and he could gel with any of our young players. He's proven to provide offense, which we're in dire need of. low risk signing on top of the fact, if he preforms, he's a valuable asset for a team heading to the playoffs in a year or two (hope we're that team mind you) as a trade. This is a good fit. I'm 100% on board!!!
  6. I was very happy with my relocation last night. 308 which was the section I was looking for, last row (12) which is fine for now. Jumped across the rink, I believe the 306-309 end is better for washroom and food/bevy access.
  7. You know the officiating is slanted when they call that penalty on #87 good job refs, make the call when it barely matters...
  8. Not only is it a small sample size, if memory serves me, our level of competition dramatically improved durning that losing stretch. He is important to this team nonetheless.
  9. Good luck back in Europe Drew! The NHL's Shore quota was maxed anyways.
  10. Hey! I had that card! Thanks op for the thread
  11. I remember thinking durning the world juniors a number of years back that if Ellis can bring that style of play to the NHL level, it'd be fun to watch. Glad it's happening now.
  12. -Predators in six socal traffic=preseason crowd to start the game.
  13. It's apparent that the Leafs are going to continue getting away with everything.
  14. Greetings everyone! So I'm going to be a first year season ticket member this coming season! I've moved back Downtown and it just made sense. Save the cautionary tales, I've been going to games since '88 (5 years old) consistently making it to 5-10 games a year, so I'm well aware of what I'm buying into. Traveled to Calgary, Pittsburg & Southern California for away games, lived through the triumphs and... The way I figure it, one less vacation amounts to similar $$$$ figures I'd be spending for the whole season. I'm sharing the two tickets with a good friend who's in a similar position, so it makes for good company. In a way, we're fulfilling a dream. Now's the time to do it in my mind, as the fickle market has jumped ship and the true fans are starting to come back. Hopefully it will amount to a better atmosphere... although, I'm sure we're still a few years away from righting that ship I want to be there for it. About the atmosphere, RIP DJ Dave (I'm sure he's still alive but he was let go a few years back) gone too late if you ask me, with all due respect to him. I still think we need more "hockey music in the building ie. Dallas, Anaheim etc.. On my previous statement of the rats leaving the ship- I don't blame anyone for moving on, or downgrading to halfs or ice packs. For a lot of people there's many factors that lead to that decision. Hey, It's been a difficult number of years, I've lived them, with out as much of an dollar figure investment to the team. I hope theres a seat for you guys durning the upswing. I'm lead to believe that will be sooner than later. With the current changing of the guard in the NHL, add to the fact of the expansion shake up, I feel we can do a quick turn around. Looking forward to #22 1K point (hopefully at home) and the continued emergence of the new core. I support the old core and am a firm believer that the Sedins will have a bounce back year, they will work hard, it's all they've ever done for this club. Sorry, enough with the particulars. I just wanted to thank the contributors of this thread for keeping me in the loop. Looking forward to the games!
