There's still 2 more months of offseason for us to make a move. If we can't get anything done and we go into the season with the roster looking the way it is currently (assuming we sign Voracek relatively soon) I'd be fine with that. Do we wish we had gotten Shea? Of course we do, EVERY NHL squad wants him on their roster, he's one of the top 3, if not the best defender in the league right now. Our defense did get more physical with the subtraction of Matt Carle and the addition of Luke Schenn. Oliver Lauridsen has an outside chance of making the pro squad this year as well, 6'6" 230lbs, by no stretch of the imagination is he a considered a puck mover, but he is a physical beast.
Are we as good on paper right now as NYR? No. Does the best team on paper always win? No. If that was the case the Rangers would have knocked off the Devils and had the Stanley Cup in MSG right now. Injuries, and concussions are unpredictable in any sport, especially hockey. What happens if Richards goes down for an extended period of time? Would you feel as confident about your team, having just given up 2 of your younger Centers?
Nobody could have predicted that Pronger was going to have his career ended by an errant follow through on a shot. If we had Pronger last yeasr would those games have looked a little bit different? Most likely. I'm not saying we would have won the series between the clubs, because Hank played out of his mind, but they would have been different games. Moral of the story is anything can happen in hockey, anything. You're only one shift away from a lengthy rehab, every time they step out onto the ice.
No need to be an A-Hole and rub dirt in our wound about how we took a long shot at getting a prized piece and lost out on it. Did Flyers fans come into your forum and disrupt your threads after you got knocked out by the underdog Devils?
Show some class and I will too. And please expand your vocabulary a little bit, you've said the word obnoxious at least 30x, and costed is not a word. Neither is winned, shooted, or fighted. If you're going to try to argue at least go about it like someone who's had more that a half a course of Hooked on Phonics.
Can we close this thread? I am tired of opening the flyers board, reading this thread title, and saying to myself "fukking cunnts"
LOL...hell the Preds ought to be thanking us for making them a legitimate franchise.........they squandered Suter for nothing and were set to drag out negotations with Weber for ANOTHER year before letting him walk too........we essentially forced them into stepping up to the plate and becoming a legitimate franchise and paying a player......we also made Weber a VERY rich man by giving him an offer he would never have gotten after the new CBA......that damn town and everyone in Weber's family should be sending Homer a christmas card this year
People ask me, "Why here? Why Kentucky?", I said "Why not"? It can be done here. It will be done here. Lay the foundation. Recruit and develop. Prepare to win. Day by day. Play by play. A new era of high performance. Why Kentucky? Why not? -Mark Stoops
Can we close this thread now? Don't get why we keep this and the Nash thread open if both have already been completed
Why did you just bump it? It was on it's way out... no need for further comments
