  1. Even though I was a proponent of “sitting tight” at the deadline I must applaud the committee for having the cajones to make some bold moves in very difficult circumstances. The cost was high so now we can only hope that the long term payback will have been worth it all. We shouldn’t overlook the fact that we added some snarl with the additions of Skjei and Trocheck, an element much needed for this team IMO....
  2. Given how they’ve owned us on the ice recently I can appreciate your concern that they may have owned us at the trade deadline as well...
  3. I may be totally wrong on this (memory not what it used to be) but it sure seems like Skjei was a thorn in our side all the times we have played them the last couple of years. May have been a prominent factor in our desire to snag him...
  4. Thanks I just noted that in the other thread....was hoping he could slot right in and give us those steady 20 minutes that Pesce man was providing...
  5. LOL yeah I remember that quote too....of course in fairness that comment was made prior to the Saturday night massacre...
  6. OK so with Skjei and Vatanen on board what do our D pairings look like now? Will we see both guys tomorrow night?
  7. Not me pal...I think for the long term when it comes to my hockey team just like I do for my personal financial investments. Short sighted management like we used to get from Rutherford led to 10+ years of misery here, a half empty arena each night, and rumors of the team leaving town. You really want to go back to those dark days?
  8. Hmmm an hour and a half to go and still no NHL goalie....is Lehner worth a few draft picks? I say NO!
  9. Check out REM’s analysis of this trade on the last page of Saturday’s GDT. He pretty much nailed it...
  10. I’ve seen quite a few comments in Sara Civian’s Twitter mentions along the lines of Karmanos is sleazy a.f. and not to believe a word that comes out of his mouth. One person mentioned that under Karmanos everyone was constantly on eggshells. Under such a scenario one could easily envision Francis being highly incentivized to cover up the allegations of physical abuse before they ever got to Karmanos. I’m not saying that exonerates Francis entirely but it does help us understand how things may have played out as they did.
  11. Definitely not a good Turkey Day for Ron Francis....
  12. It will be interesting to see if John and Tripp mention this stuff in tonight’s telecast. I realize as team employees and representatives that they have to be careful in what they say on air but I have frankly been quite surprised in the past as to how direct some of their commentary has been on team related matters.
  13. It seems Pastor Bill was behaving in a decidedly non-pastor like manner....and his GM at the time was looking the other way. I agree with others here though that we need at least to hear Peters and Francis’s side of the story first...
  14. Time to move on and *edit* slap the Habs for offer sheeting our star player!
