    Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if we can finagle a 1st rounder out of him. Far better return than KK, Lovejoy, Mojo, Boyle, Noesen, etc can ever give us.

    We can legit for once sell really high on a 3rd liner having a career year. However, instead we are deciding that he is too valuable while praying one of the other names that are in the mix like MoJo and Boyle can get us more than a 3rd round pick. Ho Lee sh!t

    Winning teams have talent; a lot of it. That is far more important than a 3rd liner having a career year.

    I am not talking about giving away Coleman for peanuts. However, I do find it funny when we always talk on here wishing we would have traded x player back in y year because their value was at an all time high and now when faced with that decision at the moment, people want to stay pat.

    And plenty of time to disappoint more.

    You may think differently when he goes back to being a 10-15 goals a season guy. I like Coleman a lot too, but how many times do we wish we would sell pieces when their stock is at their highest?

    You just listed every reason why his return would be better than any of our players outside of Hall, Nico, Palms and Ty Smith. Plus it is very doubtful he will repeat this year's performance.

    I have zero problems with Coleman being shopped as well.

    Apparently that game was a couple years ago. Maybe they had a falling out since?

    I thought I heard Dano say at one point last night something to the effect of "not every defensive zone breakdown should end up in the back of the net." That is probably the biggest swipe he will ever take at KK.

    What on earth are you talking about? Both Malkin and Crosby had significant injuries early in their career. Ditto for Stamkos. Who is to say Hall can't have a lengthy career like them after having injury issues early on? This is not Mike Cammalleri we are talking about here, but you are trying to twist it into that sort of situation really hard. As for the goalie argument, I did answer you. I said those goalies you mentioned were all better goalies (backups) than KK. If you want to find another backup putting up similar numbers to KK might as well find Yann Danis somewhere in the scrap heap and pay him league minimum.

    That's an awful take on things. Crosby, Malkin, M. Lemieux, Stamkos, etc. have all had serious injuries where they have missed significant amounts of games in their career and you are saying none of those guys are worth superstar money? I guess when your mindset is to overpay for below average backups I guess your thinking can be warped.

    Does she literally hold up her notebook and try to get an angle with the jumbotron in it? That's an awfully awkward angle to capture a picture of that info.

    Isn't 45-50 points the going rate these days for a lot of players in the $5-6M range?

    The thought has crossed my mind about someone being behind KK's account as most professional players hired people to run their accounts. However, if it is someone who is hired to run it then I would have a serious talk to them if I was KK. To literally search his name and block anyone with even mild criticism of him and without even @ him is beyond unprofessional and looks worse optics-wise than just letting it be. Now it went from KK the sucky goalie to KK the sucky and incredibly petty goalie. Again this is based on the assumption that KK has someone running his accounts.

    You don't even have to @ KK, he literally searches his name on Twitter and blocks anyone who is even remotely critical of him. He has even been caught doing it during intermission lol. I know about a half dozen people I follow on twitter who are blocked by Kinkaid. Even Todd Cordell has or is blocked by KK for writing a piece about his struggles lol.
  20. I'm actually here! Toronto 13-4. Matthews calls us a Mickey Mouse organization after.
  21. First part: I think for a lot of people the fact that it is fully stitched is what makes them feel like the quality is superior. If they purchase a replica from NHL and get it customized, the NHL Shop (aka Fanatics) is going to send them heat-pressed crap with plastic lettering. So at least part of the reason is that the NHL/Reebok shot themselves in their own foot. As for the second part, my brother purchases hockey jerseys of various teams for his 11 year old son as he is getting into this stuff. Almost all of them are knockoffs and they both legitimately don't know the difference.
  22. My stance on the knockoffs is this: wear what you want to wear. However, just don't try to convince me that they look as good, if not better, than the real thing. And yeah the green on the knockoffs is almost like a neon green.
  23. Overall, I like how they are handling these throwbacks. Four games is about right for these. I could probably be alright with 6 games, but above that it would get to be too much. Also, while I do like the red Reebok retro's, these whites look better IMO as they looked real sharp on the ice. Not only that, but last night really made me miss the Devils wearing white at home. I wish the league would go back to white at home full time. They could reverse it every 10-20 years just to keep it interesting. Finally, I thought that at least partially the reason why a lot of the new jerseys look awful on people with less than perfect builds was the absence of the bottom stripe. However, when I saw people even the legit Heritage jerseys who aren't in the best of shape it still looked horrible. Therefore I am now convinced that it is the material more than the missing stripe that is doing it.
  24. It used to bother me too, but I've learned to just accept it and now it hardly bothers me. Someone at the Sykora signing had a knockoff he wanted Sykora to sign that was already signed by at least one to two dozen players. That part didn't bother me, but it was the part where that jersey was quite possibly the filthiest jersey, real or not, that I have ever seen lol.
  25. I think you answered your own question lol. But they were easy to tell because of the usual knockoff issues plus the Heritage knockoffs tend to use a green that is a few shades too light.
