Aaron Rome magic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I would like to point out this fact. Aaron Rome is a boss. He was drafted by the Kings in 2002. They didn't want him and they fell to 10th place that year missing the playoffs. They had a skilled roster with Cammalleri, Visnosky, Palffy, Frolov, and Deadmarsh, just to name a few. However, Aaron Rome was angry that he wasn't signed by them, therefore causing them to have a dismal season.

In 2004, he was signed to a contract by the Anaheim Ducks. 3 years later, they won the cup with the help of Rome (in one of the playoff games). We can once again see the magic Rome produced for the club that chose him. The following season, he was traded to the Blue Jackets. The Ducks, lucky that they allowed Rome to play a game and win a ring avoided the curse and finished 4th the following year.

For the following 2 seasons, he played with the Columbus Blue Jackets. Because of Rome, Columbus made its first playoff appearance in franchise history placing 7th in the conference. Columbus let Rome walk after the season as a UFA. My oh my did they make a big mistake. They finished near the bottom of the standings (bottom 5) for the next 3 years while Vancouver, the team he signed with made great strides. They captured two presidents trophy and made it to the SCF only to be defeated in 7. Rome had a great impact with hits like

Now, Vancouver let Romer walk. Will we be the next team to be cursed? Only time will tell. Will Dallas, his new team feel the luck of Rome? Looks like it. His luck already seemed to rub on the franchise signing unprobably free agents in Jagr and Whitney while acquiring a star center in Roy. Only time will tell.

I gotta say I'm not missing Rome that much, I liked him while he was here and i did enjoy his 3 game goal streak early this season, but if your claim to fame is laying out Horton, you've got to be working on your game, wish him all the best but dont miss him.

I think it's clear the OP is jacking around, and I for one found the thread to be hilarious(whether he was serious or not). Unfortunately I'm out of plus's for the day. :P

I liked Rome, The only thing I liked about what he contributed to the team was the lay out of Nathan Horton... Other then that he had way to many turnovers and was horrible in general.. (Compares to the other Canuck Defense-men)
