Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: The End Of The Bill Watters Show?

So was his anti-Kessel/Phaneuf/Heatley (OK he gets a break there). I mean every show in season he was
harping on Kessel and his contract and Dion and his Calgary "issues"...

Drury on a cheapo?

I take it you wanted to show the pic seeing the article is from 2009.......

Cripes I'm so old I remember cutting that out of the paper for my Dave Keon/Leafs scrapbook.... :o

I hope this kid can put it together in the show.  I have some doubts, but I like his game...if he can translate it to the bigs.

Why the doubts? He's only played half a season in the minors and a half in the NHL - arguably being pulled up due to public pressure. He weighs next to nothing and he's barely 20 and being shuffled around position-wise. He's got world class hands and moves as well but in Toronto they eat their young and then complain about having no developing potential stars.  :P

Cryptic comment from Tony Gallagher on Watter's show - the link will be on the 1040 website - he commented
that the fact that he's on Bill's show is "short-lived" etc. And I know that they would keep him on his show so...

The sad part is this guy has more money than I ever will.  What an idiot.

Just wait 7-10 years, and you'll have more money than him.

That long you think?

He's got 3 more years with > $60 million left. That's enough to feed his kids for a while.

I'm not the grammar police but yeesh I can't understand half of what he says.

To be honest, it's stupid that the government is wasting their time going after Bonds/Clemens, etc.  The whole 'speak in front of Congress' was a political farce meant to further re-election bids.

Yeah, you'd think they have enough dirty politicians to fry instead.

Oh they do. This is designed as a distraction otherwise they have to go after their own.

slick goal:

I didn't know Israel had such gems, beauty goal.


Sorry, just didn't want to wait for this posting.

Kadri > Turris, no thanks.

x2. Turris is or should be further along his career than Nazim and he's not as good right now IMO.

I just don't get the apparent blood desire to trade Nazim. Can we give the kid some time please?!

Interesting that people are leaving HNIC - even though it's people with relatively small roles in the overall make-up of the show.

Some will no doubt attempt to paint it as evidence that the CBC may lose its contract with the NHL.

I was just going to float that idea. Although I really like the CBC production, once Grapes calls it quits I'm not
sure what's left. I'm finished with Jim "Homer" Hughson after this years playoffs so unless a bright star comes from
nowhere, TSN has considerably more talent.

What about Drury for el cheapo?

Two cars in parallel on a two lane road driving the same slow speed.

A mis-trial has been declared in the Roger Clemens trial

Two scenarios:

#1 - Prosecutors were looking for a way out and threw the game

#2 - They are incredible idiots.

I vote for 90% #1 and 10% #2

Anyone else notice that the time listed in the posts is one hour behind the actual time?

The servers must be in the central time zone.

I think you can adjust the time shown in the Profile section.

In the meantime:

- drivers stopping as they enter the freeway
- drivers doing the limit or less in the fast lane, holding up numerous cars and being totally oblivious
- drivers suddenly deciding that the far right lane is where they need to be
- drivers slowing down to a near-dead stop to turn into a street

I feel a little better.
