  1. You mean like when Podz made that beautiful long breakaway pass that Petey couldn't quite finish?
  2. I think you can sign an NCAA player any time you want, but as soon as you do so, his NCAA career is over.
  3. Anything is possible, but while Podz is kind of a long shot for the Calder, Bones is not even in the top 20.
  4. Sure. And the girls you do meet all tell you that they are lesbians, right? Imagine our surprise.
  5. Hopefully the timing for this move was based on JB looking at the various teams' depth charts and deciding that if any of them claimed Gadj right now they would need to waive players they don't want to lose. Keeping my fingers crossed. Hey, Marky cleared waivers this time of year didn't he?
  6. I think Podz is around 8th in Calder betting right now. If he gets a decent amount of top six and PP icetime he could get enough points to be a Calder finalist.
  7. It was the topic of that conversation and is the topic of this entire thread. It does not need to be repeated in each and every post.
  8. I would categorize it as either projection or trolling. And if it were actually an honestly held opinion, it would include some specific examples of the IQ deficiency, so I am going to have to go with trolling.
  9. Looks to me like he is playing very cautiously because his experience suggests that when he makes a tiny mistake he rides the pine or goes to play in the minors for a game or two to reflect on his sins. I expect as he gets used to the coaches and his teammates he will become more and more prominent. And he has already shown that he finds another level when the playoffs roll around, that's when I expect him to really shine.
  10. These threads are hilarious. These contracts have a huge impact on the team's present and future, not just the dollars but the terms, which are often of even more significance than the money. And they have the same significance to the players careers and lifetime earnings. And of course there are conflicting agendas. So negotiating them can easily take a long time. It's not quite the same as walking into a car dealership, spending an hour haggling over the price, then having the salesman tell you that you got such a great deal you almost got him fired, you are a great negotiator. And because this process takes some time, some posters are vilifying our two biggest stars for being greedy for not accepting whatever they were offered, while others vilify JB for not immediately giving them whatever they wanted. And then we get to this thread, where the premise is that something sleazy must be going on, and since there is an agent involved and agents are evil, let's crap on the agent too. What I don't understand is what sleazy tactics were being used?
  11. You mean why would anybody be allowed to participate in training camp if they are not already 100% in mid-season form/game shape? Gosh, I can't figure that out at all.
  12. When some people are really unhappy with their pathetic lives, they try to make others lives miserable too. You know, "misery loves company"? Trolls like Fred probably fall into that category.
  13. It looked like the poster was referring to the translator's enthusiasm, not Podz or Klim.
  14. Maybe a hydrogen fuel cell EV. Easier to get bigger range/payload than with a battery EV, and Toyota already has a HFCEV sedan in it's second generation.
  15. For sure. He is the playoff warrior type, as he has already demonstrated. Gives it 100% every shift, except when it really matters he somehow manages to scrape up another 10%. So far he is another Trevor, with higher playoff point production than regular season. Will be interesting to see if he can continue that in the NHL.
  16. I agree. I am expecting bridge deals with Petey getting 7 something and Quinn 6 something. I can't see the team wanting to commit massive amounts of money/cap/term based on such small sample sizes. I also can't see the players wanting to negotiate their long term contracts at a time when there is such a shortage of money/cap space league wide putting downward pressure on salaries. Especially before they have had the chance to show what they can do with a bit of man strength and experience.
  17. Yeah, all things considered, the chances of Brock being traded for another winger any time in the next year are somewhere between extremely slim and none.
  18. I could certainly see him starting the season there, but I would be very surprised to see him still there at the end of the season.
  19. Wow, you sure know a lot of things that I don't. Where did you get all this information?
  20. The longer WHO holds out? Petey and Huggy, or Benning? Who is being reasonable and who is being greedy or cheap? How far apart are they? What are the sticking points in the terms? If you know the answer to these questions, then feel free to crap all over whoever is being unreasonable. Otherwise you are just throwing crap for the sake of throwing crap.
  21. I don't think relevant facts like that are going to make any difference to posters who are determined to fabricate some reason to hate.
  22. I have to laugh at the posters desperately grasping for something to whine about. Half of them calling for Benning's scalp because the negotiations are still ongoing, and the other half crapping all over our best players for the same reason.
  23. I haven't really been paying attention. Which leader/party is against vaccine passports?
  24. Hoping OJ doesn't pay any attention to trolls.
  25. So our young star sees no reason why he would not be able to come to agreement with the team and sign a new (almost certainly multi-year) contract, and he is happy to be here. He expects to be here playing for us this fall and for a number of seasons to come. He is very competitive and wants to be on a winning team that has a chance to challenge for the Cup. To me these are all good things. Yet somehow they cause some posters to run around squawking that the sky is falling while others, as always, take the opportunity to fabricate some delusional pretext to Benning bash. Ok, I am ready for it to turn sunny again so I can get out of here and go back to the beach. Hopefully until the NHL regular season starts.
