In Topic: Local players drafted

27 June 2009 - 04:24 PM

Yes, that's him.




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.

In Topic: 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.)

In Topic: Michael Jackson Dies

26 June 2009 - 04:36 PM

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.

In Topic: German Hockey player banned for 2 years

I'll quote Speed Racer from a Family Guy episode: "This does not effect us at all haha!"

In Topic: Report: Bruins - Flyers at Winter Classic

24 June 2009 - 05:05 PM

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.
