Sad news.  Always had a hate/hate thing with him.  I'm sad about it, ...

 

and I think I'll just have to leave it at that.

hahaha! 

 

Yeah -- I hope they can pull things together.  Sometimes I get into hysterics just because of fear.  I do see improvements -- I just want assurances they will reach fruition in timely fashion and the team won't backslide.  and of course I never condone tanking.  The risk is far greater than any stupid draft reward that might come to pass.

Sean Brown... but I always kind of knew he sucked.  He was a dope in real life too  :P

 

Olivier - I only remember Olivier because hell...how long was he around even and, you know, actor, all that.

 

I think I didn't exactly over-rate Nystrom -- I just loved him.  I think I didn't understand what a jackass he was though.  He had a fuzzy moustach so he seemed as cuddly as a muppet not this evil cussing scrappy thing that he was.

 

I know I over-rate Mike Bossey.  To this day I still feel like any time he wants he can just glide onto the ice and score a goal.  He's just sucha great team guy he'd never steal anyone's limelight or make the game even remotely about him in any way shape or form.

 

and probably THE worst over-rate on my part is Bobby Ojeda.  He had a good year as a pitcher.  I thought he could win the Cy Young on his change-up alone. and morally -- I would have cast him as Dwight Tower in On the Beach.  Even after hearing about how he was amongst a group of giggling baseball players hitting on a group of chorus girls in a show I knew. Things got aggressive even - and Bobby was reported to be laughing like a drunken jackass though not contributing to the fray.  He'd have hitched a ride if someone was willing... yuck.  When he got divorced, cut off his finger like a dope -- and then every thing else in the poor guys life.  There comes a time stupidity and lack of talent just have to play a part - it's can't ALL be bad luck.  :/   and now he's got like a GAGILLION kids and it looks like he got a nose job and -- I still love the doofus but he was not the day dream I made him out to be at all.

 

Scott Stevens... well - I finally got it right with that one  :evil:

In Topic: Is Phil Kessel the answer?

the money alone hurts the team and the fact he's signed makes the whole thing a non-starter. 

 

Dude - I'd never even START to go on about how it's a bad deal. There is NO DEAL.  Thread over - hence why I was shocked to see anyone responded.  Don't you know me better than that? 

 

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand......

 

 

we're done
