  1. To put everyone in a positive mood, we were at 41pts @ 41 games played last year !!!
  2. Very true, but Gardiner might be much more valuable to us in the press box than on the ice...
  3. Is the Peters thing supposed to be some kind of dig ? You need to come up with something better than that since I can care less about the Flames. Maybe you should take the time to studying hockey if you think +\- means nothing, or better yet, go watch the last 3 Leafs game 7’s and tell me how good Gardiner is going to be with us haha.
  4. Who ever had the idea of signing Gardiner over De Haan, I hope that person gets coal in their stocking for the next 30 years. De Haan a +10 on a terrible Hawks team, and Gardiner -105 by the end of the season. Great decision !!!
  5. If we can somehow miraculously win the next three games in reg, we gain some very valuable points against two teams above us….. Trying to be optimistic with the glass half full, even though its more like a quarter full haha
  6. So they say…. Thats like us saying we're going with Peters if we got rid of both Ward and Khudo. I am sure they would give it some thought if a goalie was offered their way.
  7. I am hoping Ward a player and pick for Kesler, now that Vancouver needs a legit goalie.
  8. Tonight I have goal line seats against the glass in the Saddledome tonight, in the Calgary defensive zone for two periods so I am praying for an offensive onslaught by the boys. Also hoping to see Ward in net tonight again, he needs a few games to get his rythm back. As much as people are on the hating Cam trade him away bandwagon, I feel way more comfortable with him in net than Peters anyday no matter what the stats say.... So what if Peters stats are better, I feel like the guy is ALWAYS battling the puck and hes bound to come back down to earth.... Remember Montreal was gonna give Price away for a bag of pucks a couple years ago, and now look how hes doing....
  9. Anyone see the Thorton incident with Orpik? Just wondering what everybody's opinion is on it? I do agree its a coward move and should be suspended a decent amount. I don't think its anywhere near Bertuzzi's incident. My opinion is 10 games max, tripped him and suckered him twice with his glove. What I think should be looked at more, is James Neals attempt to injure on Brad Marchand, I thought that was just as dirty if not worse. A deliberant knee to the head when a player is down. Just wondering what everyones opinion is?
  10. The West always dominates the East.. They play two totally different games. The East plays more of a european finesse game while the West plays a pure Canadian/American style (Hard, gritty, hit everyone type fast paced game). Boston is one exception, they play a hard hitting tough game and that seems to be pretty successful to me. So to people saying that just speed and finesse are keys to success, have a look at the past 30 stanley cup winners and ask yourself if it was finesse that got them that far. TEAM TOUGHNESS will always be number one... blocking shots, winning battles, getting to the rough areas in front of the net and absolutely giving 110%, grinding the oppositions Dmen into the boards to tire them out and take advantage offensively. The toughest teams always win in the playoffs and always will. To people who are against fighting in hockey, give this article a read: http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nhl/2013/10/30/pro-fighting-column/3320245/ PS: Not trying to bash anyone or be rude, just stating facts along with my opinion. Enjoy your thanksgiving in the US fellow caniacs!!
  11. Ryan Pullock from the Brandon Wheat Kings. He is from my home town, amazing tough defenceman who is not scared to fight, hit or go to the dirty areas. Not to mention he shot 105mph at the Wheat Kings skills comp. He is ranked 12 right now, but was 6th at the midpoint.
  12. Rick Nash is now available but would probably take a miracle to get him. Just think how amazing Staal & Nash would be together, think 2010 Olympics who dominated everyone. Ruutu, Mcbain, M.Murphy (columbus needs a goalie), and two 1st rounders.
  13. Well something needs to be done asap..... I say trade Ruutu, Faulk or Murphy, plus a first rounder and what ever else it takes to get Spezza or Nash... We cant get any worse, and we have so much young talent that we have a promising future so why not get a first liner when we have the bait to get them!
  14. I wont be losing sleep if they both walk, let them be greedy lol. Larose deserves money but in our situation were not the ones to give it to him. Cole on the other hand I dont want to see him back, hes constantly been downhill. Hes got speed and grit but if you cant finish what good is it. I would rather see that money we save at least trying to get a big name for staal. I mean if JR was willing to pay cole at least 2 mill and Im sure offered larose 1.5, theres 3.5 million there to spend towards someone. Get PK to dig out some ole pocket change and grab a winger.
