@Mind Bomb @Ensign That's my wee one! She's ready for hockey season.

Whats going on in here this afternoon?
@jcg_4 @Ensign I just think you're all jumping the gun... week one of the preseason means shit. Lets see how things start to work out as the progresses.
3 days, 23 hours ago on Friday Mashup: And then there were 39
@Mind Bomb @dlb Mad @Ensign slow day at work today... I have next week off to go hunting and have cleared up all the stuff I am working on.
anyone interested in doing a mock draft on yahoo?
Sometimes this site is so aggravating!!!! BAH!
@jcg_4 I think you are over reading the relevancy of the first week of the preseason. Every year we see this will vets...they don't worry about going all out right away...they are just getting the rust out. The young guys trying to crack the league are going to come out the gates full of piss and vinegar. The real hockey starts now that a lot of players have been sent packing.
@king leary @Ensign @vinoa @Archie Vanlanda @.JVR. Exactly, guys that have been around awhile aren't about to turn on the jets full bore during the pre-season...even if we desperately want to see it. They wait until the games really matter. We have this discussion on here every year about people getting stressed about veterans performances during pre-season
@vinoa @Ensign @Archie Vanlanda @.JVR. Yup...im not losing any sleep over them
@vinoa @Ensign @Archie Vanlanda @.JVR. You wait until all the no chancers are gone and see who does better at the legit competition. First week is just getting the rust out.

@Archie Vanlanda @Ensign @.JVR. These guys have done tons of camps.. there's no epiphany coming about Booth. He doesn't need to turn it on until he's playing with the smaller group. Not saying he's going to tear it up but just that the first week means SFA for the vets. We see it every year.
@Archie Vanlanda @.JVR. I'm not even looking at the vets until next week.
@Mind Bomb @Ensign ugh I have him for two more years! FML.
@Mind Bomb @Ensign @dlb Mad Ya I went with Tatar and Kuemper....I have to more picks coming up soon from trades. Doing an offline draft. I likeit.
@Mind Bomb @Ensign already grabbed by someone else..i hope he stinks.. Niemi the best goalie I have right now
@dlb Mad @Ensign Johnson is on Tampa Bay. I lost a C with Staal going down so I think i'll grab Tatar
@Mind Bomb Any sleeper goalies out there worth a shot does anyone think? Kuemper I was thinking, I have Backstrom and Harding is out injured.....
@dlb Mad @Ensign total reason to pick!
@Mind Bomb @Ensign Leaning towards Johnson....although Tatar is going to have to step up more
Also trying to pick between Ward and Reimer for my third goalie.... sigh.
@Mind Bomb @Ensign Ya sadly.
need some thoughts on a pool....pickings are getting slim... do I want Shaw, Bonino, Tatar, Monaghan, Hodgson, Johnson T
@MaxwellHowe @Ensign See above.. Cam is already trading the team ;)
4 days, 20 hours ago on Game Review: Preseason Game #4, Senators 4 vs. Maple Leafs 3 (SO)
@MaxwellHowe @Ensign Ya then the 'sky is falling' begins and people start wanting to ship out Kessle and crowd for a bag of pucks.
@Mind Bomb @Ensign Almost lunch time here.
@Mind Bomb @Ensign Nadda. Just at the office
@ingy56 @DeclanK Me too...but its a no brainer statement to make. Everyone knows the fishbowl in TO is brutal on players.
@Xxxxxnew @Ensign right...sigh long day. Hows the other game
5 days, 11 hours ago on Double GDT: Preseason Game #3&4, Senators vs. Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., TSN4&5)
@Xxxxxnew @Ensign thats vs Ottawa?
Hows the games tonight? Scores please!
@Burtonboy @Ensign problem is that there are constant changes in the science so it is possible that some bad training happens...especially if its very different than what the teams trainer does.
5 days, 18 hours ago on Wednesday Mashup: Undefeated Pre-Season Leafs Head To Ottawa
@Burtonboy @Ensign Completely agree.
5 days, 19 hours ago on Wednesday Mashup: Undefeated Pre-Season Leafs Head To Ottawa
@Burtonboy Theres been a few (Doughty is one I believe, Bozak and Clarkson as well)
@Hmmm @LeafErikson @golieguy19 Its more complicated than that...some aren't training properly... go read the article I mentioned above.
@LeafErikson @golieguy19 Go read Friedmans's 30 Thoughts....its about off season training this season... good read.
@MaxwellHowe @Ensign @golieguy19 I guess that's what your scouts should be for though.... do we NEED these games? No.... flexibility with waivers could be built into the CBA to give more players chances.... not as many players but again your scouts should narrow the list down for you fairly well...
@MaxwellHowe @Ensign @golieguy19 which gets back to the fact that the other guys are then no playing NHL calibre guys.
@MaxwellHowe @Ensign @golieguy19 I didn't say it was perfect.... I think we are stuck with this model sadly.
@Hmmm @Ensign @MaxwellHowe @golieguy19 They can play old farts hockey while they wait.
@MaxwellHowe @golieguy19 Maybe have tryouts and keep the for sure players out of it? Kind of like the rookie tourney but with other players who aren't sure things.
@Mcost61 @golieguy19 Hard to blame Staal for his broken leg...Sucks to have player go down for an injury that's going to take so long to heal
@wiski @Ensign @Ricky_Vaives_slapshot Still.... we have enough real top six to fill out the lines no? Or at least players that are closer...
5 days, 21 hours ago on Wednesday Mashup: Undefeated Pre-Season Leafs Head To Ottawa
@Ricky_Vaives_slapshot @Ensign @wiski He's not even going to be out there to protect anyone on that line.
@Ricky_Vaives_slapshot @Ensign @wiski Can someone explain this to me? I'm a little slow at times.
@Ricky_Vaives_slapshot @Ensign @wiski Ummmmmmmmmmm..... Orr? I thought it was a joke when I read Wiki's post (like a joke picture or something)
@Ricky_Vaives_slapshot @wiski I can't open the link from work. What am I missing?
@Pent_House @MaxwellHowe that collision was still pretty stupid...but I didn't see the game so i'll take your word that he made up fo rit.
@Jmessih He was being nice...he had to be at least a little pissed at Tallinder
@Black_Hawk @Ensign For sure. I'm happy enough.... I hated the Scrivens/Reimer combo so getting rid of Scrivens and getting Bernier....who I wanted well before we actually got him.... made me happier.
