There are plenty of posters here and on other boards who know plenty and aren't arrogant about it.

Want an example? Derek. Or how bout the guy you just complemented zero.

Hahahaha...long overdue. Now they need to get rid of Jacobs.


The problem is, NJ only plays them 4 times a year. We were only able to get them to trade JT and fire the idiot GM. If we played them 8 times a year, maybe Jacobs might have an epiphany and sell the team.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


What the hell do you call two firsts and a future star goaltender. Altanta didn't even touch it either. Kovalchuk wasn't hyped up all that much going into the draft, he was only slightly ahead of Spezza in the rankings. Crosby is different story and some team will offer something greater then that Montreal package.

A spare goalie and two prospects? No wonder Atlanta didn't want it.

I guess Ryan Miller is a spare goaltender and adding Vanek and a 1st are just two prospects for Brule, which is a better comparison. :rolleyes:

Theo was considered a goalie with a lot of potential still. Goalies don't reach their potential till later in their lives and GM's know that. Hainsey was hyped up an incredible amount, some made pronger comparisons, and a first round draft pick from montreal is nothing to scoff at, considering how much the team was struggling at the time.

I think Zero's got it right. I think the perception around the Internet back in 2000 or 2001 was that Theodore was plateauing. This is because he hadn't yet earned the starting job. However, he did impress by beating the Devils in triple-overtime in 1997. I think a lot of people expected him to be starting by that point. I'm not so sure Hackett was a 'stopgap'; I read a lot of posts in 2000 and 2001 on the HF boards that purported Hackett as a top 10 goaltender.

When goalies or defensemen don't progress from the minors or don't progress perceptibly from 20 to 23, most people write off their superstar potential. It is usually a mistake to do so, especially in today's NHL.

I had Theodore in a fantasy hockey league that I won in '00. He had a remarkable finish to that season after Hackett went down. He was definitely on the rise and that might be why the Canadiens thought he had value. They had Garon in their system to fall back on.

So, no trivia until the game comes back? I was kind of wondering where you were going to find new questions. You covered a lot of history.

BTW - if you go to the sample cards, just try the last card. I was just rhyming them off the first few cards and then I hit that one. Including the junior question, I got 2 on the whole card.

Ooo, I'm special. :P

There should be a special "boring lockout edition trivia" with Qs like: Who was the NHLPA president in 94? How many teams claim they lost money in 04? Where was Arthur Levitt born? Where does Gary Bettman buy his ties? Etc.

OK maybe not. ;)

Went 7 for 7 in current or just lapsed contest. I assume they make the contest questions easy. Are the game questions tougher?

I also heard people claiming Markov was a top 10 defensmen in the league after his big year. Not that a statment like that holds any value.
