  1. Phils land Cliff Lee

    The Phillies have acquired Cliff Lee and Ben Francisco for prospects Jason Knapp, Carlos Carrasco, Jason Donald and Lou Marson. This has to make the Phils the favorite in the NL.
  2. Local players drafted

    Yeah he was drafted by Philly. I'm not exactly sure when he's going to play in the NHL, possibly this upcoming season. I heard some rumors he didn't want to sign with Philly, he wanted to sign with the Rangers. I don't know details or if it's even true. Bobby Ryan of the Ducks went 2nd overall in the 2005 draft. He's from Cherry Hill. T. J. Brennan was the Sabres 2nd round pick (31st overall) in the 2007 draft. He's from Willingboro, NJ. A few kids I know are going to play in the USHL and the OPJHL, which are some of the best Tier II junior leagues and send alot of kids to Division 1 schools (For people who don't know, the majority of D1 Hockey players come in as like 20, 21 year old freshman after playing a few years of Tier II Junior hockey. The top Junior leagues are the Tier I leagues, OHL and QMJHL. Those players get paid to play so they can't play NCAA hockey so players in those leagues go right to the NHL). It's really awesome to see local kids getting recogintion and I think the increase in US born players great for the league.
  3. Local players drafted

    A few kids I played against last year got drafted. Today, Alex Velischek got drafted by Pittsburgh and Eric Knodel got drafted by Toronto. Velischek played for Delbarton Prep and the NJ Colonials 18U AAA. I'm not sure where Knodel went to high school but he played for the Philadelphia Junior Flyers 18U AAA. Yesterday, one of the Ducks first round picks, Kyle Palmieri (26th overall) is a NJ kid. He went to St. Peters Prep and played for the USA Hockey National Team Developmental Program. It's cool to see kids you played against getting drafted into the NHL and it proves that New Jersey youth hockey can compete with youth hockey in the entire country.
  4. Chris Pronger traded to Flyers

    I don't think this was a smart trade. They're a young team with a bright future. I feel like you trade a 19 year old and 2 first rounders when you have an older team and/or a team with a lot of free agents trying to make a one year cup run. Although Sbisa didn't have a great year, he was only 18 and still has a bright future. Anything short of a cup win in the next 3 years and this will go down as an awful trade. The Flyers have a bad trade record. They traded Pitkanen for Jason Smith and Lupul. They traded Patrick Sharp for Matt Ellison. Eric Lindros for Peter Forsberg, Steve Duschene, Kerry Huffman, Mike Ricci, Ron Hextall, Chris Simon, Philadelphia's 1993 first round draft choice (Jocelyn Thibeault), Philadelphia's 1994 first round draft choice (Nolan Baumgartner), and $15,000,000 (keep in mind how much money that was in 1993, equivalent to $40 million now.)
  5. Michael Jackson Dies

    What does Wal-Mart and Michael Jackson's house have in common? Boys shorts half off. Due to the fact that Michael Jackson is 99% plastic, he will be melted down into lego blocks so little boys can play with him for a change.
  6. German Hockey player banned for 2 years

    hahaha that episode was on tv last night
  7. Report: Bruins - Flyers at Winter Classic

    The Devils will never play in the Winter Classic. Apparently the NHL hasn't gotten the memo that the Devils don't play the trap anymore.
  8. German Hockey player banned for 2 years

    that's putting the pu$$y on a pedestal
  9. GOOD CALL HOSSA!!

    Ehh, I hated seeing Crosby win the cup. I would have rather seen Hossa win it than Crosby for sure. I used to not be a Crosby hater cause I thought he would be good for hockey. Yes I fell into the hype. I'm sorry. But now I can't stand Crosby. I hate how much everyone jerks him off. I'm sick and tired of seeing Pittsburgh on TV every sunday on NBC. F**k Crosby. There is plenty of other young talent if the NHL would take a chance to look around. I don't care that Hossa didn't sign with Pitt cause he was only there for half a season. I think what Kayria did after the '03 season was pretty messed up though. He was the face of the franchise but he left for Colorado cause he thought he could win a Cup there.
  10. Flyers to sign Emery

    Rumors are that because of cap problems the Flyers are looking to trade Simon Gagne. I think Gagne could be a great pickup. He's a great defensive forward, he can kill penalties, solid goal scorer, he's great on the powerplay. I would be interested in a trade for him, I just doubt the Flyers would trade him to a divisional opponent if at all.
  11. Pick 6 for your ultimate team

    Now: Parise - Datsyuk - Ovechkin Green - Lindstrom Broduer Future: Parise - Mike Richards - Ovechkin Green - Weber Varlamov? (Maybe a little too early to tell but he seems like a gamer)
  12. Top 10 Most Hated Professional Athletes

    So I'm guessing you're not too fond of Philadelphia? I saw Hatcher at my gym the other day. What a lanky s.o.b. I could take him.
  13. Top 10 Most Hated Professional Athletes

    I'm pretty suprised about how many soccer players are so hated. I could only name about 3 soccer players to be honest.
  14. Top 10 Most Hated Professional Athletes

    Wow I finally did it. I started a good topic. Mission Accomplished, onto the next forum.
  15. Top 10 Most Hated Professional Athletes

    Yeah alot of ppl hate Joe Buck. I don't get it to be honest. But thank you. You were absolutely right. Hugh Douglas, broadcaster and former Eagle, got in a fight with TO. Same kind of idea. TO = cocky, arrogant, douchebag. Reyes = cocky, arrogant, douchebag
