  1. I hear one of the Canadien's Tenors is a free agent. Pick 'em up!
  2. So, without reading all 108 pages of this... Generally speaking, regarding the trade, "old school" guys love it, while "analytics folk" hate it and think the Canucks got robbed. This, I believe can provide a decent, very cursory, summary of the two camps on this. Considering Benning has said he doensn't care what the analytics community has to say (quote saying "we won the cup without fancy stats", or something), that means he's happy to think that half the management teams in the NHL think he got robbed on this deal, because he's sure he got a good one. Now, let's return to the trade deadline, where Dan Hamhuis was on the block and after all that go-round with Calgary and Dallas, Benning decides to hold on to Hamhuis for nothing (and now with Gudbranson here, since we'll probably let Hammer go, it really looks like nothing) to maintain his pride and avoid the appearance of getting fleeced in a deal (I'm way too busy to dig up quotes, but I'm confident enough about this one, so feel free to find it yourself). So, based on the no-Hamhuis trade, we have Benning willing to refuse free assets to save face, while on the other hand, with the Gudbranson deal, he's quite willing to give away assets even if it means losing face. Whichever camp you fall into, in light of the Hamhuis no-trade this just seems like another example of odd asset management on JB's part.

  4. Last guess on this one for me... Antero Niittymaki
  5. Ollie Kolzig? Don't think I'm right, but I'll hazard a guess!
  6. Pete Peters? I love this thread, haha. It reminds me of all the hockey cards sitting in my garage!
  7. Correct. Pretty easy, but I had to represent my all-time fave!
  8. Chico Resch of the Colorado Rockies
  9. As happy as I am to see Demerit get the recognition, I feel YP Lee has been the best at his position for the caps this year and might have deserved a nomination even more.
  10. The way I see this is similar to the off setting penalty and diving call people complain about in hockey. People complain about this but in a hockey game, if it is a legitimate hook or something and the guy embellishes it to make it worse, both are justifiable calls. Same deal here. Camilo clearly took an "inadvertent" tumble on the play, but buddy on SJ stuck his foot out when he was clearly beaten. Maybe Camilo should/could have been punished too, but it was still the right call.
  11. Lol. Did Rintoul just refer to the "ginger contingent" in vancouver? I assume he feels he is part of it, along with robson, lulay and schneider. Anyone know if the Canadians or Giants have any redheads?
  12. Okay. Now let's see what Miller can do.
  13. From a team standpoint this is seemingly a good move. From a marketing standpoint I think Hassli brought more than some might realize. A big strong tough player does wonders to attract people who dislike soccer because of its reputation as a wuss-sport. His value as a fan favourite equals value for ticket sales. Additionally, turnover frustrates people, especially if you're not getting players back. Casual fans can't be bothered to remember every single player and I'm sure the roster spots, allocation money and multiple drafts cnfuse people too. If we win significantly more games because of this, yeah, its worth it from a marketing standpoint because winning is th bottom line. But its always a risk trading away a big name player when yourre trying to attract new fans!
  14. Only reason he wasn't first are the letter D and P.
