  1. funny.. I didn't think you could score an assist... This is all they have and all you guys can claim are "points" stamkos scored more goals last year than both of them combined... You know what goals are right? That thing the giant score board in the middle of the building counts that decides who wins and losses the game? Is alot easier to beat a player with a pass than it is to beat a goalie with a shot.... But good for the sedins for having 4 point nights against bottom feeders and get held off the score board when it matters... Just so people like you can clamour over their point per game crap stat. These guys are no where near the elite players anymore.... And I don't even hate that guys, I just don't crown them world beaters just because they can pass the puck....
  2. what's fair and what will help the team achieve the ultimate goal are 2 different things... If I watch Hank tell reporters 1 one time that "the team played well enough to win and just didn't get the bounces" after a compete stinker I'll strip the C off him myself.... Classy guys? Yup no doubt, unreal in the community? No argument there... Great leaders, coming up big in the biggest moments, rallying the troops they have continued to fail in these aspects time and time again. And when teams focus on them and shut then down there is 0 push back from them and they play like they are 5' tall...
  3. except the fact they took a raise instead of a pay cut on the back side of their careers. That really helped
  4. just gross...benning hasnt been here too long and hes already made a ton of bonehead moves. love how he over pays for players and lets the good ones go for nothing. this is the type of return i expected for a bieska salary dump..
  5. boone jenner did recover.. he played the last 11 games of the season when cbj was all but out of the playoffs already..he definitely wouldn't have been playing at anything less than 90% when the games didn't matter....Zack on the other hand.....
  6. based on what? hes had 2 good whl seasons, a good quick start in the NHL that fell off quickly, 2 average stints in the AHL and hasnt brought any consistency of effort to his game in the NHL at all and gets knocked off the puck very easily.. he hasnt shown at all that his success from Jr can translate into the pros.
  7. not a fan of this trade ,but it doesn't have much of an impact anyways.
  8. sedins can make alot of players look good but burrows is the only one that really made the sedins better as a line...hes been the only one to truly fit right in with the cylce game and not just stand in front of the net...
  9. wasnt that the same reports that came out after the schnieder deal too? all sorts of GMs saying they wouldve gave more... i wonder if they all just say things like that to make mike look like an ass.
  10. last time cody played with players like vanek and pominville on his line was the lockout year and he was on pace for 30 goales and 70 points for a full season.... thats underachieving to you?
  11. where are people getting this consistent crap???? first full year in the league 19 goals. then 15 in a half season with the lock out on pace for 30... then he scored 20 goals last year.... and that brings us to this year..... seems pretty consistent to me.... yeah hes a minus 9 but hes on a shipwreck of a team with no goalie and will probably still hit the 20+ goal mark and not to mention he is 54% on faceoffs right now. i love how when trying to degrade a player people bring up consistency.. nbut yet in this argument kassian is the poster boy of being inconsistent .... but many of you think just because a guy doesnt score every night hes inconsistent.... well guess what even 40 goal scorers dont score every night!!!
  12. no more kevin glenn beck or lulay if hes good to go.
  13. that coach knows his days are numbered... jeff garcia will be Head Coach by next year.
  14. too bad hes not the one of the ice...i dont like the adaptability of our players...
  15. to win a cup after leaving van?? brent sopel ,matt cooke, further back scott sure there are others but im just thinking of guys who spent a good deal of time with us before going to another team..
