Comets Star

Comets Star (6/16)



  1. Garland has major potential. I think he'll score at least 30 goals next season. And with Podkolzin coming onto the team as well, that's two new quality young forwards. Very exciting.
  2. Signed into the forum for the first time all year because of this trade. While I'm pleased Eriksson, Beagle, and Roussel are gone, nobody wants to see a first round pick surrendered + absorbing a new albatross contract. I've never been particularly keen on OEL, but Connor Garland is a very, very exciting acquisition. The overwhelming narrative about this draft was it was underwhelming and very difficult to predict, due to the world. So we'll see.
  3. Kassian is and always will be at least 50% clown. Ever since the Tkachuk beatings and the extension he’s been far less of a high-motor and more of same old Kassian. Glad he’s on top of his off-ice demons but what a joker move. And still the Oilers keep re-upping this mediocre crew.
  4. I would love this signing, but isn't he the current Islanders' captain? He seems bound for several more seasons in Uniondale.
  5. Possibly "Random Rules" by Silver Jews (or something written by Spencer Krug) In 1984 I was hospitalized for approaching perfection Slowly screwing my way across Europe, they had to make a correction Broken and smokin' where the infrared deer plunge in the digital snake I tell you, they make it so you can't shake hands when they make your hands shake I know you like to line dance, everything so democratic and cool But baby there's no guidance when random rules I know that a lot of what I say has been lifted off of men's room walls Maybe I've crossed the wrong rivers and walked down all the wrong halls But nothing can change the fact that we used to share a bed And that's why it scared me so when you turned to me and said: "Yeah, you look like someone Yeah you look like someone who up and left me low Boy, you look like someone I used to know." I know you like to line dance, everything so democratic and cool But lately, there's no guidance when random rules I asked the painter why the roads are colored black He said, "Steve, it's because people leave And no highway will bring them back." So if you don't want me I promise not to linger But before I go I gotta ask you dear about the tan line on your ring finger No one should have two lives Now you know my middle names are wrong and right Honey we've got two lives to give tonight
  6. High school and college students in the United States think he's cool.
  7. Every morning after a Canucks game...


    Image result for it crowd did you see that ludicrous display

      Oh yes, and a lot of pauses, like hmmm, yeah, oh, yeah.  Then,  - Yeah, Seattle's getting a hockey team?! Yeah, well, I'm totally excited about that!  

  8. Search Party, season two: 8/10 Back, season one (the new series starring Mitchell and Webb): 8/10 Baskets, season three: 6.5/10
  9. Seth Jones's shot is coming along nicely. 

  10. The Blue Jays seem like a team that is lost at the moment. Donaldson is obviously great, but it was foolish for them to let Encarnacion (who was the heart of the team) go but keep Bautista (who is so washed up). Sanchez (if he can avoid blisters, apparently) and Stroman are definite 1-2 starters, but everywhere else is lacking. Toronto was build offensive-heavy and for those disaster 10-9 games. They reek of a massive rebuild.
  11. We're still only 3 points out of the wildcard and we're still better than Edmonton. There's lots of time to right this thing.

      I think the main issue is we have a lot of players that either are snake-bitten, or just really aren't playing that well. There are some players that should definitely stay and form the nucleus of our core. But I'm seeing a lot of guys that for whatever reason just isn't a fit for the team. Maybe it's adapting to Green's style. 

    2. Brad Marchand

      Think we're seeing the true importance of Horvat and Sutter to the team. Without them, lots of players are being forced to handle workloads that they aren't used to or aren't optimized for. At this point, it probably goes beyond how they are being coached because they really don't have anyone capable of properly filling their minutes right now.


      That being said, they probably aren't as bad without him as they have been in the last four games.

  12. So much for Nilsson being starter-capable.

      All true, everyone. He has still allowed 18 goals in his last 4 games. His start to the season seems like ages ago.

      That goes for everyone not named Brock Boeser. :)

      Have you heard about Jayson Megna tho? His parents threw in the Y in his first name cos they knew people would be asking that question every time he took the ice. 

  13. Lol 

    1. zzbottom


      Probably is? Shall I rescend? 

    2. zzbottom


      Love you. Sorry. 

  14. I got a feeling that this Brock Boeser character is a-ok 

    1. -AJ-


      I'd say he's at least above average

  15. Michael Bisping is and always was a pretender. He was never elite and he was boasting like he was some kind of Hall of Famer. It was hilarious and awesome to watch St Pierre with 25 extra lbs kick his ass.
