  1. We just heard and my youngest son (Trevor's buddy last two seasons) is upset. In talking with Trevor we know he was hoping to renew his contract with us. We also knew the reality of the situation that Trevor could be picked up elsewhere. My youngest faced that fact, but never thought Trevor would end up in Russia! Trevor will be missed by my family, especially his buddy. We wish him the best though.
  2. Trevor is a good player, but doesn't get enough ice time. I know he wants to stay because he likes it here, but he still had no clue what Rutherford wanted (after the season). We would like for him to stay, but I also know he's capable of scoring more if he had more ice time. My crew is on edge waiting to know something.
  3. No offense, but they are just like us. THese guys shop and eat at local places just like we do, except they can afford it more than most of us.
  4. I have learned that this is a game of money and business.
  5. I think we need to keep Cole. I believe he is great paired up with the younger players. Plus, he takes a big hit but keeps coming back for more!
  6. I hate to see Bret leave because I think he is great with this team, but I believe his heart is on the West coast. The few times I saw Kristi on DWTS, Bret seemed to enjoy the time with his girls. It also appears that the families get along well too. I guess you have to go where your heart is. I just wish him good luck wherever he settles. Maybe we can find some young blood for next year.
  7. There was one day, after practice, we were eating lunch and thought we saw one of the guys. We were eating right down from the RecZone. I didn't approach because I feel that is their "private" civilian time. THey are so great after practices about giving autgraphs, that I respect their privacy in the public sector.
  8. Unless I missed it somewhere, you don't have Letowski listed. He is an Unrestricted free agent. At this time he would like to stay, because he likes it here and his teammates. It just depends on what the offers look like once the time comes. I actually asked him to explain the restricted and unrestricted deals, since I still wasn't too clear. So now I understand.
  9. I agree completely with you. THis team can get the job done, but they are going have to work even harder. THis is awful news though. I lost my reason to go to the practices. Lol Not really, but I will miss not seeing BrindAmour. THis keeps up, we will have to call down the entire minor club to help us get to the playoffs!
  10. Well I hate to see COmmie and Stillman leave, but hopefully this trade will give our team a bit more power. It won't be the same not seeing Commie at the practices. I wish our guys the best in Ottawa.
  11. So it boils down to who works well with the teammmates and who is more capable on which line?
  12. I couldn't have described an unsung hockey hero any better!! In fact, knowing Letowski (my youngest is Trevor's little buddy) this "definition" of unsung hero really fits Trevor perfectly. My youngest has been blessed to develop a friendship with Trevor and we can definately say Trevor is one of those unsung heroes.
  13. THanks for the easy illustration. SInce you mentioned Letowski as an example, I will use him also. I know he is on the fourth line, going to the third a couple times to fill in, but yet he is a good player. He may not be Brind'Amour or Staal, but he is there when you need him. So if someone is on the fourth line, it shouldn't be thought of as demeaning or that those palyers aren't good? I thought Hamilton has been a good addition, thus my surprise when he was on the fourth line too. A little about Letowski, he's a good player and is great at backing his teammeates. In fact it was either Forsland or Tripp who mentioned that Letowski is an unsung hero on the ice.
  14. I feel there are too many curves going on. One thing I am curious about with JR is why does he do a trade in the minors with "for future consideration" clause? What is JR planning here? Don't we need some help now especially right before the playoffs.
