General NHL News & Views / Happy Free Agency Day!
« on: July 05, 2013, 09:04:53 AM »
I've made it clear I want Clarkson but...

Little doubt David Clarkson will get a 7 year term. Some gm's think he will get $6 mil or higher per

... um, no... Not at that price and term.

General Rumours & Speculation / Random rumours

I see people retweeting Eklund that Tim Thomas has been traded to the Islanders... Interesting if true.

Pretty good article from Dave Feschuk... Covers a lot

Some thoughts from Pat Quinn and Black Bears on how Dave Nonis's past has prepared him for the present as Leafs GM

Marlies & Prospect Talk / Marlies Game Day...
« on: October 08, 2012, 06:56:25 PM »
I thought one thread for all Marlies games would be okay? Or, if you guys feel like it, they can certainly be split-off...

Anyway, nothing of substance to add but I thought tonight's D parings were kind of funny;

Fraser-Holzer | Ranger-Blacker | Yeo-Gysbers


Go to Google and type "bacon number" and any name. See if you can tie or beat it.

General NHL News & Views / 2012/2013 NHL Injury Thread
« on: August 29, 2012, 07:39:52 PM »
Maybe a titch too soon to roll out this thread given the labour uncertainty but it looks as if there is potential for Rene Bourque to miss a chunk of time (maybe a month or so if the season starts on schedule.)

Not confirmed but;

Darren Dreger ‏@DarrenDreger

Sure sounds like Lidstrom is retiring. Holland won't confirm. Says Lidstrom has earned the right to make his announcement tomorrow.

Yeah, I think think this deserves it's own thread... I mean are talking perhaps the greatest d-man of all time here.

Okay, I'll do it  :P...

Go Kings!... I've got a little money on them.  ;) 

Non-Hockey Chatter / twitter "who to follow"
« on: May 24, 2012, 04:37:54 PM »
I don't tweet and only follow about 20 people. I just find it handy to get news and other stuff fast. Anyway, for those who use it, you'll be familiar with the "who to follow" section. Since a lot of us have some pretty common interests, I thought it would be fun to do this in house. That is, what (let's say) 3 people do folks here recommend following?... Recommendations don't need to be hockey/sports related at all but those are certainly welcome additions too.

Here's mine;
@Wilnerness590 (yeah, he's an arrogant boob but his tweets paint a decent enough picture of games I miss.)
@TSNBobMcKenzie (just like the knowledge and reliability and his often ill-fated attempts at being cool.)

Certainly folks don't need to stop at 3. Somewhere down the line, if someone else finds another that's informative or humorous, please share!     

Should be another good one... Just a fantastic goaltending match-up. I have reasons for wanting either team to win but simply from a pool perspective, I'm pulling for the Coyotes in this one. However, while I'm hoping for for them to win this one, I'm still a doubter. - Kings in 6.   

Should be a good one... Richards/Gaborik vs Kovalchuck/Parise is a wash I think. We have Callahan vs. Clarkson is another nice match up. Overall, I think the Rangers talent level top to bottom is slightly better. Their defence is better and Lundqvist ought to be better. Anything can happen but I just have to go with the better team and with the home ice advantage. - Rangers in 7.   

Non-Hockey Chatter / Vote Emilio Fina! (Canada's Got Talent.)

Kudos to my colleague (tenor, Emilio Fina) who just made it to the finals on Canada's Got Talent! Please show your support for him as he chases his dream.

General NHL News & Views / 2012 playoff pool help (draft)
« on: April 11, 2012, 09:38:51 AM »
Maybe we need a new bullet point under "Just For Fun" entitled "Fantasy Hockey talk"... Or, maybe not... Anyhoo, I need some advice.

I've decided to completely avoid drafting players from Detroit or Nashville because I think the series is too close to call... I figure if St. Louis can get by San Jose (and I think they can) they'll meet either Nashville or Detroit in round two. How do folks (hypothetically speaking of course) like St. Louis' chances vs. either of those teams?
