Whatever. It was Junior B, yes. Delta Ice Hawks. It was 2 or 3 different games as an emergency call-up. And I'm 29 years old now, so it was a long time ago. Age 15 sounds about right, if not a little on the young side.

Anyway, this is all irrelevant - someone brought up the notion that "I've obviously never played hockey before", which is funny, because he admittedly never has. I played hockey from Tyke - Midget, and always at the highest MINOR level that was possible. I never said that I was NHL material or anything of the sort, just that I played a lot, a lot of hockey.

but you have an answer for everything don;t you?

Looking at your little explanation I could completely rip into you right now, but I won't. Because it is irrelevant.

if you are going to stick your chest out like an Alberta rig pig in a best buy to get your point across then be sure you google or research your claims.
Your credibility is on the line, when you lose that you become an annoying fly landing on faces.
Everyone wants to hit you, even if it means hitting there own face.


Anyway, it looks like I will die before this thread.

That phrase made me LOL pretty hard, actually.

But I wasn't sticking my chest out at all. Just making the point that I HAVE played hockey, all my life, actually. Really couldn't care less if you all believe me or think that I'm full of it.

Hahah. I just checked this thread for the first time in about a week. You guys NEED to take a break. So much aggression. Haha. People are fighting about some randoms opinion on 'handedness' and having a long dong comp on who has played more hockey. Go hug your wife, do your homework. Shyt
Everyone knows Lou is getting traded to TO for Komy.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

I don't know when "handedness" became a factor in the analysis of players, but I think it's just the latest thing that the insiders use to analyze largely for the sake of analysis. I don't see how it matters...


As a matter of fact, handedness actually does matter. A lot.

Looks to me like everyone's been arguing with King, Mullet. Insert acronym here. Apologies if you didn't get a chance to post one of your proposals edgewise...

B.S. to that. oldnews writes long, well-thought out rebuttals to KofES's arguments. Hell, even the latter's posts, which are admittedly over-agressive, are made up of coherent sentences and even manage to use proper spelling and grammar. In my opinion, it's you and smurf's one-liners that add nothing to the discussion. It's very obvious who the children are in here.

Doesn't matter how much you played, you don't know half as much about goalies as smurf does. He's the goalie champion, you cant win.

Anyone think that the sharks may be a mystery destination?

They are in that desperate to make a splash or people get fired mode.

They do have Clowe up for UFA and he is a player GMMG would love to add.

I imagine other pieces would be involved and one can only speculate.

We all know Neimi is overrated, they need that lights out Goalie like they had with Nabokov, they dam near missed the playoffs with Neimi in the Pipes.

I think it would be interesting to see Luo in SJ - particularly given the Canucks tendency to knock them out of the playoffs. That would make for a dramatic playoff matchup.
I like Clowe, but he is another left wing - so there'd still have to be another move or two as a result or the deal would have to get more complicated to include a left wing going their way and another piece coming to Vancouver.
Imo, they'd need to part with one of their centers (and not the big dopey one) -and they can afford to..
Thornton, Pavelski, Couture, Handzus, Mitchell - all up the middle (and three of their top four scorers) -and their top prospect is another center, Tomas Hertl.
Send us one of those top three centers (other than no-show) - preferably a package including Couture, and then send Niemi to Toronto haha.

I think San Jose's pretty quickly getting into Calgary Flames territory. Yes, they made it to the WCF in 2010 & 2011, but they were swept by the Hawks, and then lost to us in 5. Fast forward to 2012, and they lost to the Blues in 5. Think of all the teams who finished better than SJ this year, and note that practically all of them are younger (us included).

So basically, I think they're primed for a big downturn. And they still have Niemi signed for 3 more years, an $3.8M, so they'd have to do something with him, which I'm not sure would be that easy (again, there just aren't that many teams that need a goalie).

Right. I played "AAA" and even a few games as a call-up in the BCJHL. I played plenty of hockey. Handedness is largely irrelevant. I don't want to get too off-topic here, but HANDEDNESS is different than SIDE. If you all thought that I meant the SIDE (left D, right D, for example) is irrelevant, I didn't. I meant whether a person shoots left or right. Not that important.

Whatever. It was Junior B, yes. Delta Ice Hawks. It was 2 or 3 different games as an emergency call-up. And I'm 29 years old now, so it was a long time ago. Age 15 sounds about right, if not a little on the young side.

You are so stubborn it's ridiculous. You are the only person including NHL coaches that thinks handedness doesn't matter. I guess an emergency call up to AAA makes you right.

Thats a bit of a stretch. Unless Lou fixes whats broken.hes not going to help Sharks much . He'd be playing most of the teams that have the the book on him and know his weaknesses , which , at this point are increasing !

Wow you sir need a reality check. Couture is not going anywhere and No show??? Really, you wouldnt want a guy who would be the perfect fit to play 2nd line center and put kesler to the wing? San Jose wouldnt trade Joe to Vancouver for LU anyways and Joe I know would not accept a trade to Vancouver.

That's because Joe Thornton is an A$$clown. His antics with Henrik were just pathetic. Henrik acted like an adult while Thornton puts his finger in his face. The guy is a loser.

The Canucks do not need or want a half ass like No Show Joe. Honestly not many teams do. Look at how the Bruins took an upswing as soon as he was gone. San Jose is a team on the decline and would trade anyone to get things moving again. Luongo as a player is faar more valuable than Thornton. How far have the Sharks got in the playoffs on a consistent basis?

Word of advice Mr. Mullet, go back to the Sharks message board.

Wrong! In my opinion, when Luongo gets traded to the Kings for Quick and a 1st, you will all thank me for telling you how Shea Weber would take a huge pay cut to come to Vancouver. Screw all of you. You heard it here first.

Thanks for the reality check Mullet.
I'm aware that Couture is probably the last player that SJ would want to let go of - but you never know - for the right package.... Aside from him, Clowe and Pavelski - not much of interest there. I like Marleau, but the hit is a bit high.
Anyway - no, I wouldn't want Thornton, his dopey, mopey lack of presence, nor his 7 million cap hit.
