@MaxwellHowe @.JVR. OK....the reality of how awful we could be just came to the forefront.  Although I really like that second line....as a third line...

@MaxwellHowe @newkb A dlb/Cam spat down a ways, and Fenton is on, but other than that - not much so far.

@Cameron19 I think Reilly would compliment Dion the best out of our current core.  I think he has more of a defensive aptitude than Gardiner.  Having said that, I wouldn't necessarily want to see this right away until Reilly shows a bit more.

@MaxwellHowe Ironically this past Saturday I was putting for eagle 3 times on an easy 9-hole course on Manitoulin Island.  I still sucked (shot a 43), but it was the first time out for me.  They had 2 reachable par 4's (306 and 287), which made things easy.


Not much on here today....

@Jmessih @newkb It's an Aulie for Ashton type of move....but with older players.  He'll only play against left-handed pitchers.

@Jordan29 @newkb And next year there will be another crop of cheap 3rd/4th liners to pick over.  It's the new reality under the cap.


Booth is very unlucky injury-wise, so I am not expecting a full season.

@TheCanucksnaphook @newkb @Yaknowwhat I get that too.  I'm not a hunter either, unless it is on the golf course looking for yet another ball 100 yds. into the bush.

@TheCanucksnaphook @newkb @Yaknowwhat Hey, if it is about the animal hunting, keep in mind that you are eating the food that those animals depend on to survive.  J/K.

@mr_hanie @Burtonboy It hasn't been proven that the Detroit late round amateur picks had anything to do with Nill.  However, I can see the good job he is doing with pro level talent.  He has the benefit of being under the radar.....Dallas is a team that the others dump their players on so they don't come back to bite them...

@TheCanucksnaphook @newkb @Yaknowwhat I have no opinion either way.  Best not to judge the person.  :)

@wendelsway1 @The_Polish_Cannon That was your first erroneous assumption....that he actually watches games.  Plus the mould in his mom's basement is really toxic to the brain.

@Burtonboy @Jordan29 Which is not the case if Leivo, Ashton, Granberg, et al - are HANDED jobs out of camp when they may not be ready due to lack of competition.  No culture change there....make these kids earn their jobs. 


Reilly earned his job.

@Yaknowwhat Which is exactly why I am glad that almost every one of them has a 1 year contract around the million dollar mark....that contract status issue should not come into play.  And if it does.....fire Carlyle.  LOL!

@Yaknowwhat I agree, and even then I don't see Granberg as being 100% ready yet.  Sometime this year, maybe....

@TheCanucksnaphook @Burtonboy I see nothing that suggests that......yet.

@Burtonboy Not one of the signings is for more than one year (Frattin excepted), and not one can't be sent down with ease.  No commitments have been made to the new signees other than "If you play well, we may keep you".  That is it.  And if the kids can't beat out the 'plugs', they are either not ready or, more likely, not good enough.

@Mattmark @4evrblue @Mcost61 @theacs1966  Isn't that just terrible asset management by other teams (cough Darryl Boyce cough)?


Or.....maybe, just maybe.....some good teams let players go because they can't afford to keep every good player and has to use rookies on ELC's to get under the cap?  Plus, this notion that every other team passed on them is absurd....again, I thought you were smarter than that.  Yet here we are.....
