  1. Past hour
  2. That, to me , is exactly what Markov has become. There is no need to pay 6 mil for the same thing.
  3. We have the slowest , least mobile D in the league, similar to way the Habs GM played the game
  4. what a complete waste
  5. I don't think the Islanders would accept 10 minor leaguers for one NHL star
  6. Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin - A man walks into an AT +T store and ordered chicken thinking he had walked into a KFC store. Police caught up with the suspect in the middle of an intersection and the excuse was his brakes were bad. After sobriety tests, he was taken into custody.
  7. Next up: RBC Canadian Open Glen Abbey Golf Club Oakville, Ontario.
  8. NFL

    NFL training camps started opening yesterday with the first of the rookies reporting last Wednesday.
  9. Today
  10. MLB

    Kansas City 5 Detroit 3, 12 innings. Consecutive mistakes in the top the 12th give the Royals the win. Drew Ver Hagen surrendered home runs in the 12th and a hanging curve ball in the sixth by Justin Verlander accounted for the longballs. Verlander contributed a wild pitch in the fourth led to a second run in the fourth. Outside of a three sixth, Detroit hitters did very little, getting only two hits against the Royals bullpen.
  11. Ugg. the Streit signing just confounds our D problem. Now we have what, 20 third pairing dmen? Bonefide Top 4: Weber, Petry Fringe Top 4: Alzner, Benn Third Pairing: Davidson , Schlemko, Streit, Morrow, Jerabek, Juulsen, Lernout (Understanding that Juulsen or JJ may be better than 3rd pairing but need NHL time to move up the ranks) The biggest problem is that while we have spare pieces and components, most are not well suited, for example: * Weber and Petry would probably make a pretty decent first pairing and complement each other but you're talking about 1200+ combined games playing RD. Are we really going to ask one to switch sides? * Weber, Alzer, Benn and Schelmko are all slowish, "defensive defensmen." Petry is the only guy you can trust in our top 4 who can move the puck * Benn is probably an option in the top 4 but he prefers playing RD.
  12. Agreed to terms with Adam Pelech on a four year $6.4 million contract.
  13. Signed forward Matt Nieto to a one year $1 million contract.
  14. Signed goaltender Robin Lehner to a one year $4 million contract.
  15. N Agreed to terms with MIka Zibmejad on five year $16.75 million contract.
  16. The only way you get Tavares imho is if you include Galchenyuk in the deal. NYI will do everything they possibly can to resign him but if they cant, expect them to demand a #1c in return. I suspect Colorado will make a pitch that includes Duchene.
  17. ugg. Lets hope our player assessment team do not see them as interchangeable. Streit at 700k to be an 8th defenseman/PP specialist/insurance policy, ok, fine. Streit anywhere near our top 4 (or even top 6 unless there are injuries)... please no.
  18. Oh boy
  19. Certainly looks that way.
  20. Last time he was here he played the wing on the fourth line. Only played defense for the power play. If they do that again this could make sense. If they continue to cover Weber, then Streit could really help improve the PP.
  21. Bye bye Markie.
  22. Maybe we can trade some D like Davidson, Fucale and some picks for Tavares. We have more than enough D with Streit now and minor goalies are Lindgren and rookie McNiven, so they should trade Fucale. I think he won't develop as good as Lindgren and McNiven. Beside, signing Markov would be great. We don't need another winger like Jagr.
  23. Ridiculous. He's totally useless.
  24. So we're not signing Markov, then.
  25. Just signed Streit for $700 000 as has been rumoured as reported by Lavoie. I would have preferred we added that $700 000 to what we have currently offered Markov, but you can never have enough warm bodies on defence in this league. Maybe they see him as coaching in the system down the road as well. Well if he has one decent yea left in him let's hope it is this year.
