jagr is definently going to help this team where it needs help even though he is Jurassic hopefully he will stay healthy the pp is going to benefit from him being on it. ... then again last years power play had no where to go but up it couldnt really get much worse.
If I had a nickel for every time a player was supposed to help our middling PP....
Do you think I hate Marty? I don't I dislike him but you hate Parise. How sick you are!
When was the last time you posted something about the team? Instead of arguing how hating Parise is not in anyway similar to your constant detraction from what Marty does and has done for this team? Talk about beating a dead horse. I can take that you dislike Marty, but your constant pissing and moaning about everything is too much. I like this forum because I like to talk about hockey, not constantly be subjected to stupid posts about how you are holier than thou despite the fact that you jump at the chance to argue about anything just for the sake of being on the other side of the coin.
You're right about my hate for Parise and Kovy being silly and illogical, whatever, I've said it is, that's part of what I enjoy about hockey is being illogical and supporting the team no matter what, but you take this to a whole other level of ridiculous. It'd be one thing if you talked about anything else, but it's always Marty is terrible, you guys are stupid because you disagree with me, wah, wah, wah. Why don't you just go start your own forum called Marty Blows and you can commiserate with all the other Marty detractors instead of bringing this one down with your constant whining?
I've had multiple people tell me I'm the most negative person they've ever met and even I cannot stand you anymore. Pretty much all due to your recent fighting with other posters based on petty bs.
So much hate for Parise I am surprised, no I am not, just disappointed.
Are you serious right now? You hate on a current player and anyone who thinks it's a bit much should just shut up. We hate on a guy who dumped us and you're disappointed. Wah wah wah. World's smallest violin here, playing just for you.
It's not that ridiculous. He's a player, who while only having one season in the NHL, is not "developing", except for having to adjust to the NA game. The biggest question for me is whether or not his season was so good only because he was an unknown and know that he's on people's radars, things could be different. If he was any other player at the same age, he'd get $3.5 and multiple years no problem. I don't think it's completely unreasonable for him to ask for it. I wouldn't pay more than $3M per.
Pretty happy. The only thing that really surprised me was the trade. Didn't see that coming at all. Signing Clowe and Ryder will work. Clowe deal could hurt us, but doesn't include a NTC or anything, so that's good. Kinda expected us to make a splash this year with the cap dropping. LL knew he would be able to find value deals and he did with Ryder and Olesz. I'd say the "how pumped am I meter" is at about an 8/10 right now. Would be a 9/10 if we traded a D. Still got my fingers crossed we'll move somebody to leave open a spot for one of the young guns on D.
and he owes it all to Lecavalier. He's the one who got him a training camp invite as an undrafted player in Tampa. At some point they were both saying that they wanted to play their whole career together. It must be a really really though moment for them now.
which brings me back to a point i made awhile ago. And obviously its easy for me to say being just a regular guy but obviously when you can get a top of the line contract and long term. Personally i'd sign somewhere where i want to be and sign to a modest cap hit. Its still a lottttt of money but then we saw the stress and the trouble you get into if you don't live up to it. Fans turns against you. youre always stressed of being bought out or before to be sent in the AHL etc etc... again its easy for me to say but still.
If I thought I could negotiate a $85M contract over 11 years, I would do it in a heartbeat. I could care less who hates me after that. See ya on my private island, NOT, it's private biotch! lol.
"Quote of the Week II: I asked New Jersey Devils executive Lou Lamoriello if he was close to signing any of his potential free agents. He laughed. Lamoriello: 'You know better than to ask me that.' Me: 'Well, if you were close, you might say yes.' Lamoriello: 'Have you ever won a hockey game by being close?'"
But they weren't added during the craze and excitement of the deadline! Lou should have held off on those trades so that we could join in the fun.. Who cares if you add scoring pieces before the deadline?
Sometimes it's like everyone forgets there's an offseason coming up, where buyouts will be flying around. Why in the world would Lou trade away important assets when he might not need to do so if he just waits and tries the UFA market. I have a strong feeling that these buyouts, *cough*cough* Luongo who just said in his press conference that his contract, "sucks", won't be trying to sign the biggest and best deal they can. They may look for just a reasonable price.
Are you guys for real? It's like some of you guys are in some weird on off relationship with Clarkson. One minute, he's a pos, next minute, he's our guy who scratched his way to the top.
Get over it. He's not a 30 goal scorer, never was, never will be. You guys remember the year Clarky got hurt? In 09-10, he had 4 more points than he has now, and that was in 10 more games. So he was great then, deserving of the contract he would get in the offseason, now he's terrible....Make up your minds.
