Blasphemy

You're in Vegas? What else are you hearing out there?

I can believe it if that's what Holland actually said. I think they are prioritizing a run at Suter and then maybe looking at a guy like Semin for some scoring up front if the money and term is reasonable. They do have the idea of playing with Datsyuk that they can dangle in front of Semin. If not, then I wouldn't be totally shocked if they looked at the trade market. They have some prospects if they wanted to move them.

I don't think Holland would feel comfortable spending what Parise may ultimately get despite the possibility he could go to the division rival like the Wild. Defense is a clear and more pressing need for the Wings.

The Wild and Wings are not division rivals. The Wings have the cash for Parise, but still, they have an old building and may even be reaching their limit on what Illitch is willing to spend.

I am in Vegas, yes. The full story is that I was sitting in a bar @ Wynn and the table next to me is Holland, Dave Poile ( who is actually 10 feet away from me at rhe pool as i tupe this) their wives and another guy I recognized but could not name.

So I go to Holland "as a devils fan, please leave Parise alone". He smiles and goes "don't worry. We're not doing that."

Poile laughs and goes "what about my guy?" to Holland.

I go "yeah, leave Parise for me and Suter for him".

Holland laughs and looks at Poile an goes " don't worry about Parise."

They were all laughing an it would not surprise me at all if both these guys knew what their plans were on 7/1 but still a funny story.

Also. Malkin is the biggest cooler I have ever seen. He killed two blackjack tables and derailed a hot craps table.

Karlsson came out to the pool yesterday after his deal and got big hugs and congrats from a bunch of people. And alfredsson handed him their check for their food.

Barry Melrose was wearing a Don Cherry like jacket that was 8 sizes too big walking through the casino last night.

Malkin came out to the pool today dressed like a 16 year old kid from Iowa w/ a playboy tshirt and some big doofus trucker hat.

Bylsma is at the pool reading his wife's Cosmo magazine.

Saw Henrique and wished him good luck.

Other than Henrique and the Holland story where I was full of liquid courage, it's more seeing from afar.

And you got no autographs???? I would be all over them with something to get signed.A napkin, puck, picture, something!!

Nice stories though. Hope to hear you yell after Henrique gets he calder, and there is that weird silence:"I love you Adam!!"

lol, this story is so many epic levels of win. I wouldn't even want to be near Holland if I was Poile over the next few weeks. But I guess they're both hockey lifers and know this is part of the business.

I give you props for recognizing Poile, I think I would Holland, but not Poile.
