  1. I wouldn't have expected Williams was in "game shape" without some practice time, and he likely will need a few real games. It sounds to me like the short-term plan is pretty conservative. Can't wait to see how they actually use him.
  2. ^ I think Lake's take going back a month or so ago still makes the most sense of anything else I've seen posted during the Williams saga.
  3. Also, now that JWilly is back, maybe it's time to give Ned a shot. Seriously.
  4. Wally. Thanks for bringing up Wally. What a year he is having. My candidate to taking over for Staal one day. Maybe soon. Justin can pump his tires up.
  5. Why are folks so down on Nino, especially lately? Look up his December stats. Besides, he plays on the left
  6. I would not to be opposed to that. But not in a reactionary sense. Like the Rangers are doing.
  7. I flew around all day and counted tundra swans. Thanks for the reminder to get my Turbo X 10 vote in.
  8. Right now, we only have 3 top-4 defenseman, any way you slice it. Right now, we have a goalie tandem that can't steal a game for us. Right now, we are playing like a team captained by a Staal.
  9. Might be time for some line adjustments.
  10. You forget sir, I'm one of the guys who took the *edit*. I'd take Justin Faulk on the team right now over anybody not named Slavin, Pesce, or Hamilton. Like I always have. Too bad he wanted 6 million. With that said, I'd save any available money or cap space for another D man down the stretch and not squander it on a wish and a prayer. And at some point we need a goalie that can steal a game. I can't remember at any point this season our tandem has pulled that off.
  11. Jake Gardiner would have to pay to lick Faulk's skate boots. That is all I have to say about that.
  12. I got there an hour and half early to have a couple in the lot. Coming in off Edwards Mill, the cone guys had two lanes merging at Peter K. Blvd and had the left lane closed as you turned left to the East Lot. It plugged up everything and backed up traffic way down Edwards Mill Road. I can't imagine what it was like closer to puck drop. Idiots. I never have any issues leaving from the East Lot though. Like others, I would suggest getting there an hour or so before the game if you don't want issues.
  13. Back as well, entertaining game for the most part. No puck luck, combined with a poor second, and poor special teams did us in. But, the team kept going, even down 4-1. The parking cone guys sucked tonight.
  14. I'm tired of the speculation and waiting for nothing, frankly. Sign him on the team, or not. Or just do something else, like keep battling. Dadgum.
  15. This is the best word used on the board this year. I'm down with this idea.
  16. I really hope the Canes hit another home run with Puistola.
  17. Nobody is running over to William's house to kick his dog, so let's don't go down that road.. Lot's of folks, to use your terminology, just seem to take it at face value that he is going to help the team without considering anything else. It's not last year, the team is not last year's team. I think it's a mistake to depend too much on what he can bring after being away from hockey for so long. And again, William's doesn't kill penalties. WHO IS GOING TO SIT? Without knowing any of this it's a legit concern.
  18. I'm stopping here, and again, I'm going to stay with that ship has sailed. If it happens I'll be a little disappointed.
