oilers give $5 million a year to hemsky. he's only has 20 goals or more twice (23 tops) and gets hurt a lot. that's pretty steep for him.
it makes sense when u do the comps to guys like him: Havlat gets hurt a lot and never really reaches full potential and makes 5 Million a year.
Carkner in and Lee out--not sure why they are messing with a good thing....
Havlat would be the perfect example of why you don't hand out a contract that size to a guy like that.
They'll need carks in there tonight for his toughness against the B's.
anyone else think it seems unfair that the Pens had Mario and jagr, now they have crosby and malkin? well, when they have crosby, that is...
milbury and roenick
this rivals some of the Stooli/Shredder rants.
interesting take on karlsson and his upcoming contact
Milbury reminds me of Fred Flintstone.
On topic though, I don't like Letang and karma is a bitch, ain't it? The hit was as clean as it gets in today's NHL.
Toes and Hjalrmansson are both out for the game tomorrow. Not even traveling to Ottawa.Good timing for the Sens to pick up the 2.
Letang put Spezza out for 6 weeks last year with a dirty hit from behind and I believe was not penalized for it. so, ....oh well.
... none of the experts said a word about Letang's blatant hit on Spezza from behind (separating his shoulder)
Has anyone seen this clip of Tim Thomas and the media about his posts on Facebook?
About half way thought he says "This is my job, Facebook is my personal life. If you guys don't understand the difference between an individual and what they do as a job then I think there's a problem..... enough of this, that's my personal life and has nothing to do with hockey or the Boston Bruins"
Well, one could say that going to the White House with the Bruins was part ho his job now couldn't they?
Scott Hartnell scored his 31st tonight setting a new career high... Going back to the All-Star game I remember thinking, this guy would be awesome on the Sens. He would be a crowd favourite and is an absolute beast on the ice. He made some nice comments about Ottawa and Alfie while being mic'd up during the ASG.
just to get you guys going. tsn player rankings:
18. Phil Kessel RW Toronto 80.3419. Pavel Datsyuk C Detroit 80.1120. Jason Spezza C Ottawa 80.10
Buffalo won last night and passed the screaming trees dropping them down to 11th, 5 points out of a playoff spot. It wasn't that long ago that Toronto was in 8th with only one team within easy reach, now they're among a 5 team battle for the 8th spot and they're in the bottom two of that 5 team battle. You have to love it.
Dawg, on Hartnell don't forget the "Suck it Phaneuf" at the ASG. That instantly made him a fan favorite in Ottawa even if the does play for the Flyers.
yeah right, everybody knows Kessel is better than Datsyuk, who the hell are the 18 players better than Datsyuk? last time I looked Defense is also part of the game and that damn Datsyuk can take the puck from anybody.Since no one gives Spezza credit even his own teams fans u could put Kessel above him but Datsyuk???
Since Burke complained to CBC for Cherry's comments about Wilson and demanded an apology, I think we should all complain to the leafs for their firing of Wilson and demand that they hire him back.
Best and most disturbing comment from the Burke/Carlyle press conference.
Burke: "If there was one difference between Ron and I is that I liked it rough and him not so much"
Wilson: " be gentle with me, Brian...."
other than the fact that its really funny, you have to look at that statement and wonder:
1- why did he sign him to an extension then?2- why did he fill his team up with a bunch of pussies?
there's Russell again interjecting facts into a Leaf discussion
sucks not having a game to watch on saturday night but then again, we don't have to listen to CBC go on incessantly about the Laffs and their new crappy coach tonight.
I'm sure fans calling into the Fan590 in Toronto are saying that RandyCarlyle has already passed PaulMacLean for Jack Adams award consideration
Jack Adams? I thought they renamed the trophy to Randy Carlyle at the press conference announcing him as the new coach. So, technically he won his own trophy.
Joking aside, should be fun watching them push for 9th.
Just cause I know StooLi throws this a looksy: TSN Power RankingsFinally, some realism reflected in where the Sens and where the Laffs are positioned.
To provide some perspective ESPN Power RankingsA little surprised LeBrun didn't rank the Sens higher, he usually does.
Woohoo!! I knew Tampa would spank the B's (5-0 in the 2nd, with BOTH thomas and turco letting 3 in on 5-6 shots hahahaha)Why isn't anyone crying goaltending controversy?? You know that if Ottawa had problems in net TSN/CBC would be all over it.
Anyway, way to go Tampa :)) There goes one of Boston's games in hand on the Sens.
Btw, anyone going to the Habs-Sens on Friday?
