Actually, I've also been a fan since day one.

Before that, I was an Expo fan. I witnessed Blue Monday first hand...


one of the sadder days of my sports life. I love Steve Rogers, but he is not a closer.

HAHAHAHAHAHHAAHHA. OH MAN...Samjam99 got reeeeemd out on TSN. BEST MOMENT Ever.

The key difference is that Sopel can fill in for Seabrook and Campbell just fine. Bieksa, he is garbage so in that sense he is like the worst defenseman in the league.


When Cody (Hodgson) gets older, he might be better than Datsyuk.


Let's not push this guy (Kassian). He's still immature, and if he fails on the 2nd line it's because he isn't ready. Some guys really need years to develop, it's how well and how fast players adapt to the game. In my opinion, I'd rather have Horvat getting 2nd line minutes. He will start off on the 3rd line next season but I see him making the transition, being a great compliment to whoever plays his wings.

At this point, I don't see Kassian fitting in to any role other than a 3rd. If players like Kassian start getting 2nd line minutes then we just stay inconsistent as a team.


The idiocy on CDC....

Samjam posted that Luongo to Florida had been confirmed. TSN put the tweet on SportsCentre and O'Toole called him out, "ya blew it!"

Murphy's 50/50/90 law:
If you have a 50-50 chance of getting something right, there's a 90% probability you'll get it wrong.


But really, get a life TSN - SamJam is right easily as often as Dreger....

I'm really confused as to how he got those Booth and Hodgson trades right....I'm of the mind that he caught wind of tweets or postings from various outlets a lot earlier than all the big networks and simply re-posted it. I simply will not believe this guy has actual sources, but more of a workhouse on the internet.

And no, samjam's batting percentage is not as good as Dreger's, it's 90% worse.

TSN is chocked because Samjam beat them to Canucks trades last 2 times.

No one is 100% right all the time.

Then it's very likely that I will probably be 90% wrong about Dreger too. At least that's what my inner samjam would tell me.

While Samjam may have jumped the gun with his tweet it's obvious that Luongo will end up becoming a Panther.

- Gillis & Tallon have a history of making trades with one another
- Luongo wants to go to Florida... BADLY!!!
- Florida ownership has approved the funds to acquire Luongo's "cap friendly" contract
- Markstrom is injury prone & not ready to make the leap to the NHL
- Florida has prospects ripe for the picking though Gillis will need to take a bad contract i.e Upshall
- The Maple Leafs Brian Burke has chosen to go in another direction
- No other team is in the market for Luongo that he will waive his contract to play except for. Columbus/Edmonton not Lui's list.

Hell, I'll donate $500 to Canucks Make a Wish Foundation if Luongo does not end up a Florida Panther!!!
It's pretty much guaranteed as all the signs are there if you put the pieces to the puzzle.

SO TECHNICALLY SPEAKING SAMJAM IS CORRECT. We're just going to have to wait awhile until Gillis and Tallon can agree to a mutual understanding that benefits both teams asset wise.

I cannot believe that only Florida is in on the Lou sweepstakes. Gillis can play hardball by threatening to go into the season with two top goalies. The onus is on the acquiring teams simply because a season can be lost in the first 30 days of a season. Ask the Flamers.

That would not be much of a threat. If the potential to retain both goalies is Gillis' only leverage (and this would be the case if Florida is indeed the only option for a Luongo trade), he is bargaining from a position of weakness. Given Schneider's new contract and the risk to locker room chemistry should we start the season with a goaltender controversy, accepting a low ball offer for Luongo might well be better for the team than playing "hardball".

I'd laugh hysterically if a trade to FLA came out today and gillis said it was done verbally yesterday morning but couldn't finalize till today. "yea we knew it was done yesterday but not formally, so I let my neighbours kid tweet about it to boost his street cred at school"
