As you know, Skoula had a breakout year last year, with respect to the regular season.
However, he made multiple defensive mistakes in the playoffs last year, leading to diminished ice time.
This year, he has been in Hartley's doghouse because he has been taking a ton of undisciplined penalties (hooking, obstruction, etc.)
Put that with some lousy penalty killing, and you've got one angry coach.
Anyway, don't be fooled by that +/-.

That's lousy TEAM penalty killing.

The ESPN Insider is also reporting this deal in the works?
Unbelievable.
ESPN is a respected leader in sports.
They should leave the rumors to (N)Єverson.

I do NOT LIKE THIS DEAL! Even if it's part of a 3-way somethingorother.

Elias says he doesn't wonder why the A-Line was broken up and his linemates were traded. "What good would it do for me?" he asked.

No way this deal is going through, it's a load of crap. Tanguay is not a goal scorer, but rather more of a playmaker which we don't need with Gomez. Skoula is really talented, but he's replaced Sandis Ozo( however you spell it) as the team clown when it comes to defense. He has made costly turnovers an art form.

What is funny is that I stopped by a colorado bbs and they thought this deal would be a bad deal on their end. One even said they would accept this deal only if they threw in White with Elias.

If Lou makes this trade then he's as nuts as Neverson. Which isn't likely so the possibility of this trade is about less then roughly 0.0000000754 percent.

I loved Elias the minute he arrived here, maybe it's only because my first name is Elias and his last name is Elias, but anyhow. If Elias were ever to leave this team, I would want a power forward who is a lock to score atleast 35 goals a year.

I think the only thing Neverson is good for is to shovel snow this time of year. We are tired of him shoveling sh!t in the paper.

Problem with shoveling snow: you can't fake it... he cant quote inside sources shoveled snow for him personally, because unlike rumors... if the snow isn't shoveled, theres no way around it... unless of course it melts on its own in the appearence that it was shoveled...

ehhh... Same liklihood of (N)Єverson being right about a rumor...

this got pretty bad, but live with it :)
