  1. I honestly think we'll all miss him, he is a fine young man who wanted to be here. We all watched him grow and develop and he is still classy kid. I honestly hope he turns into an even better player up there. Still, you have toi make that trade. He's angry they traded him and not RNH or Eberle, I'd bet. Seriously, he was THE ONE guy they should NOT have traded to get D. Really unfathomable move - you gotta wonder what Yakupov is going to think when he gets up in the morning and finds out if no one woke him up to tell him yet.
  2. I'm stunned we got Hall, that's awesome
  3. I don't have twitter or even ANY social media, but I got a text from a friend that says Stamkos signed with the Bolts and Montreal and the Preds swapped Webber and Subban. Again, not saying these happened but I know someone on here can check both of these rumors out better than I can
  4. I heard they were already pretty easy to score on!
  5. The Las Vegas Flying Elvises would work, too. Just put a helmet on this guy, hand him a stick and he's ready to cover Tarasenko!
  6. Mmmmmmmm.......lamb and tuna
  7. Funny, I pulled Aces out of my ....well, thin air let's say, and then looking for Black Knights I found this lol
  8. I would have rather seen Quebec get a team, but a big sheet of ice in the desert will definitely be an attraction. Will they be called the Las Vegas Aces I wonder? A black and red jersey with a spade on the front?
  9. Looks like Hartnell has waived his no trade clause and given Columbus a long list of teams he'd play for. Given his love for Philly I wouldn't be surprised if the Devils are on that list. http://www.thehockeynews.com/blog/report-scott-hartnell-waives-no-move-clause-gives-blue-jackets-decent-sized-list/
  10. Thanks again for all the good times though man, it was great
  11. Yeah, he's gone a while now. It was awesome while it lasted but it's not coming back.

    Patrick Kane

    I agree with everyone who has already stated we don't have what it would take to get him, even if they are fed up with him.. He's a streaky player, like a lot of players are, but when he's hot he's the most dangerous player in the league. We simply don't have the talent to get him, and if we did put a package together there's be no one left for him to play with. Chicago just needs a stronger, shorter leash on him.
  13. Absolutely love Patty, and I WILL BE THERE when they raise his jersey to the rafters.
  14. I don't know how Lou's typically zipped lips will go over with the Toronto media, but I bet it will be amusing to watch lol. They won't like getting so much of the silent treatment. I wonder if we'll have to wait until tomorrow to see some stories on their newspapers' websites about their take on this...
  15. Wow, I didn't see this coming honestly.
  16. I'm hoping to see the offense get younger, and see how the D continues to develop. I'm basically all positive for the new season - we've had big changes in coaching and management so there is a 'new' vibe that should be good to see. I thought that about J Mac too but still positive
  17. Cool article Liked reading the peewee stuff too LOL
  18. I'm happy with the pick; like others have said he's a big skilled kid who evidently loves Elias and anyone who loves Elias is OK in my book Here's hoping he turns into a bigger, stronger, faster Patti in the long run!
  19. Is that the wife or a daughter? She's cute
  20. He's only a prospect who has never played an NHL game if you ignore the 37 NHL games he played this year.

    Mikhail Grigorenko

    My point was that he was allowed to continue his college career after getting drafted; there seemed to be some confusion in the thread as to whether or not that was allowed. And it would be a big shock - if he hadn't come out and said he was definitely considering it.

    Calgary drafted Johnny Gaudreau in '11 and he played 2 more full seasons for the Terriers while Calgary kept his rights, so Buffalo could draft Eichel and he could continue his 'development' at BU without issue. He's in the draft, he'll be picked by Buffalo, the only question is does he go to the NHL or try and get that Frozen Four Championship and be BMOC for another year. I think the latter is a strong possibility, especially given Johnny Hockey did it there. I'm guessing it's a pretty damned good life.
