the good news, is that Ferraro is a fool who is normally wrong.  so this is promising.

i hope something happens in tonight's game to trigger a substantial trade that sends us definatively in one direction or the other.

i think everyone sees it as a classy thing.  i'm sure most feel for the guy at least a little bit before we/they move on to their own lives.

it's not a frequent stance from me.

one time i used it as a rediculous reply to an equally rediculous comment.  there was intent to be that way.  i'm sure you are remembering that as one of your examples.

my reply to Berg did not infer that he's wrong or right.  i stated that people don't share his line of thinking who manage to make it to those lofty posiitons.  the proof is in their behaviour.

my comment was in response to your offensive comment to me.  i didn't cry about it, i slung mud back.

you've been accused of having that God comples in here before i just hope that our teachers check their egos at the door and don't talk about politics or things of that nature with their students.

soem people still remember him playing MacKinnon and Rielly sparringly

and int he playoffs he seemed to go with soem veterans in some checking roles over Biggs, Broll and others (there was a bit of a rotation).  so i'm not convinced Spott is the guy to play the kids where Carlyle did not.  until i see it.

yeah, i'm no goalie expert.  but i had a chance to speak with a few guys last week who run a goalie school.  not sure how accurate it is, but there isn't the coaching in junior hockey i would have expected for the goalies.

i know they want to make all the goalie positions "locals" now, in hopes of developing more pro quality goalies, but if the Marlies have the coaching the kid can benefit from now ... if he's ready...get him in there.

yeah, but sometimes you can only do so well.  if he can play above average in the Q and play above average in the A ... but not dominate in either.  well, if he's ready, just move up to where you'll get the most out of it.

they'll try him out to see if it's time to move up or not.  no?

for sure.

he seemed to do really well against the NHL-AHL hybrid challenge.  maybe that's good indication he's ready for the next level.

he's big enough.  time to get some pro training.

that's the point in time i learned the value of high level hockey.  the hard, crisp passing.  i wish i knew then what i know now.  i thought i was a smart player, but as it turns out.  i wasn't.  not once the world became larger.

couple years ago we had a family-son game (siblings, mom's, dads) to end the year.  one of the dads wore full equipment and was firing head-high cross ice saucer passes to kids.

i was amazed that no one else on the ice really thought there was anything wrong with that...despite a couple of the girls with only their winter hats and some smaller kids going off the ice one by one as the fear took them.

after the second one i had a talk with him.  that's when i knew the first one seemed ok to him.  he stopped, but he seemed unsure that it was a problem still.

crazy world.

i liked him before and want him to do well.

and he did ask a couple of questions i thought were valuable...like if at the draft a GM would consider that a player played for a particular junior coach...but he's asking the wrong guy lol

is anyone else finding the Millen-Romanuk team irritating?

they ramble on about the same thing for far too long, like they're ignoring half the game.

they seem to have notes set before the game that they feel obligated to stick to during the game.  as if they're looking for an opportunity to point certain things out.

they seem so out of touch with what's going on, but they say things with so much belief behind it.  i have to listen to them just so i don't miss something rediculous.

i think we'd be talking less about it if he was able to do what he did in NJ: not pick his fights while chipping in some timely goals and provide some leadership and support.

he doesn't have to look pretty to create deflections and shut down the opposition

i agree with that.  if you've got capable guys, play them.  find them ice time.  challenge the others to get those extra minutes back by playing better.

Leivo has a long career ahead of him.  he's a good candidate to lead the Marlies and come up to replace Lupul when he gets hurt.

replace Leivo with Kozun and i think you got it

i was just unsure what prompted him to start by saying that.  maybe there was something below...but i was answering in case it was to do with me thinking how Booth would affect Ashton, Orr or Kozun.

correct.

but if Booth isn't playing and is counting towards the CAP because he's not on LTR ... we might not have enough CAP space to carry enough players to actually sit anyone.

not sure why you commented...so i'm just guessing and trying to add perspective.

if we had lots of CAP space we wouldn't have to send anyone down who could be lost to waivers, and they could sit in the press box.

don't the guys in the press box get paid?  and their salary is applied to the CAP?

i just saw that and was coming back up to edit.

if the CAP is tight, the way Holzer's played (well enough) i think the CAP tightness could determine who'swatching from the press box.

i'll change the puzzle to Kozun, Asthon and Orr ... one stays, two go.  assuming Clarkson plays at least a 4th line opening day.

Gleason's first few games in Toronto he was standing guys up at the blueline and looked good.  then he started playing more like Gunnarsson.
