  1. You should stop thinking. You're not very good at it. Sutter is in against the Preds and Zalewski is the odd man out. I'd say Mike showcased himself very well. His skating has improved enough to compete at the NHL level, he goes into the corner and retrieves pucks. He's good in the faceoff dot and he can make a pass. The only thing he lacks now is experience, so we'll see if he gets a shot. Hopefully he can give a lift to the Comets. Having Biega, Vey and Jensen out of their lineup makes them much weaker and they're going to struggle to make the playoffs if they don't make a push ri

  3. How many times is it necessary to explain: Burrows is being paid now for the years he was underpaid... the Stanley Cup final years when he was grossly underpaid and the team was struggling to stay under the CAP.... Burrows didn't make a fuss about being underpaid because he was assured he would be compensated on the next contract.

With 6 million in cap-space, @Alain Vigneault is being pressured into spending big for another top 4 dman or a top 6 forward. 3. @kj29 has announced his training camp will be held in Antarctica. 4. Former GMs @Brad Marchand, @F.Underwood and @gmen81 are being courted by the Mannheim Eagles in the DEL. 5. @MikeyBoy44 and @StanLee have discussed a Kessel for Gaborik swap. 6. @TheRussianRocket. will launch an audacious bid to acquire Dustin Byfugli

  8. The one thing you both seem to have in common is you talk about Burr in the past tense. With players, when we (as fans) are discussing their past accomplishments, as defense of current, or future play, that player's time is most likely done.

  9. 5 million is less than half of what the highest paid players get. This is a different NHL where money is thrown like confetti. Look at the David Clarkson contract? Burrows got what he deserved because he was a value to the Canucks for so many years. He played many years where his play exceeded how much is cap hit was. More years than the Canucks ever overpaid him IMO. There is something to be said about loyalty. Yes Hockey is a business, but then again so is the company you work for. How would you like it if you get paid more than a new employee then the boss wants to get rid of you so that a

  10. I cannot understand the expectations of fans for immediate success for Virtanen. He is a big 19 year old who has to adjust his game to bigger and faster opposition. It is all about learning the NHL game. Someone earlier mentioned motivation. Seriously? Virtanen has the advantage of size and speed which should help his transition to the pros. I have not seen him relying on his physical game in the NHL but uses it in a calculated manner. To me it is all about adjusting to NHL speed and reaction. Not worried.

  11. How anyone can say that after the strides these young guys have taken over the last 10-15 games beats me. Virtanen is unrecognisable from the player who went to the World Juniors, McCann appears to be relishing the physical challenge despite being at a distinct size disadvantage at present, Hutton is already looking like a "harder" opponent and players like Bo, Sven, Vey, Etem and even Zalewski look ready to do some damage. Even if it was true, they have, like many on here, once more underestimated Willie's ability to lift these youngsters and this injury blighted team and make them

  12. If you look at "producing" only in terms of scoring, sure. The team does not owe him anything, however, he's obviously a huge factor in the room. The guy high fiving every single player post game. The one who lives out that "give it your all, even against the odds" deal. That's an important part of "success"....even if the overall team isn't always finding it. He was in a slump, happens. But he brings a lot more to the game than many. He will play that ugly game of slash and whack in front of the net that so many shy away from. It's huge in allowing OTHERS to score. He (and H

  18. Burrows looks fine out there. He is better than half the players on the team and he isn't half the player he was. If a lead needs to be held in the last minute, Burrows is still the first choice. A perfect fit in the bottom of the line up.

  22. Mike is the Comets MVP so far this year. He earned his contract and he has obvious, significant upside. His frame will accommodate another 5-10 pounds, his speed is NHL level, and his offense in Utica has been better this year. He came into the league as a creative player but quickly realized he would have to grind his way to minutes first. I thought his Canucks TV interview was telling when he said it wasn't hard to accept the AHL only deal because he wanted to be in Utica with the staff there, and because he has worked his way up throughout his career at every level he has played.

  26. That was me that hated on Sherman after the whole "U mad bro" and then the going off on Erin Andrews. I thought he was an arrogant, cocky POS who should've left the talking on the field only and not have twitter fingers. However, as I said last year, I don't mind him now and definitely have a lot of respect for him because he's matured from 2011/2012 to now. And, well, Tom got the last laugh. The thing with Cam is, he doesn't take it off the field. He's not going to go home after a game and throw shade on Twitter or in the media. He's all about letting the moment take over h

  28. I agree. The Panthers are an exciting team to watch and a big part of that is due to how awesome Newton has become. It's nice to see emotion. In this case, it's pure joy and fun to watch.

  29. People throw mad shade at Cam just cause he's black. If this was a white guy, people wouldn't say jack. Ripped a banner oh my god arrest him! He was handed the flag in the other game by a Panthers fan. Did you want him to take it home as a souvenir? Cam has fun. Dude gets his entire team amped up every game. He's the mvp and arguably the best qb in the game. Cam Newton makes the game fun to watch. If you don't wanna see that, go watch golf.

  32. Right, don't let him score, and he pouts like a baby, hiding under his towel. I don't mind the Panthers as a whole, but Cam is a complete tool on the field. I don't know anything about him off the field. He may be a great person in the community. But given his attitude, I wouldn't guess that he was.

  36. Well put, I wonder what the general feeling would have been in the room with each those 3 propositions for movement? I know pests are part of the game but I have a hard time accepting we absolutely need Burrows for leadership, history (Sedins), or loyalty. Just look at some of his blunders over the years. Those player comments, diving, biting fingers, pulling hair, Auger gate, etc. Of course not all his fault but not my idea of essential leadership. Bieksa on the other hand, comes across to me as a true and faithful warrior, respected across the league, plus his one liners in the media are leg

  37. Team history and culture are not separable. Fourth liners with character are actually a dime a dozen, and not enough -- e.g., look at Prust and so many others that have come in on that assumption/hope. Even Dorsett isn't the same as what Burr has and does offer. Burr was there for the team in the critical 2009-2012 period, he helped make the Sedins who they are. (Not in a big way, but he was the first decent winger they ever had, remember Klatt and Carter? lol.) But you are right about the penalties -- reckless stick in particular -- and at anything more than Dorsett's salary going forwar

  44. Yup and even without factoring in the quality of players they're playing with, special team times, zone starts. Not to mention the intangibles that Bo brings, just like Jake does with his physicality. Development's a crazy thing, basing how these players are going to end up off their rookie years ppg is hilarious though. So keep trying to prove you're smarter JamesB or guntrix, stroke those egos

  45. Great pick up by Benning, He may not should up on the scoresheet but he contributing in other ways. I dont think he has gone a game without recording at least a hit and a blocked shot. The offence will come as he becomes more familiar with the system that Willie wants him to play and as he gains confidence
