  1. Same problem as always with JVR. There is no love of the game. If he could make the same amount of money bagging groceries he would greet you with a smile as he bagged your Twinkies.
  2. I have seen some Timonen comparisons with this kid...we can only hope. Dont think the skating will ever be close though.
  3. I get where you are coming from, but he did show better wheels in his playoff appearance. Seems like waiting is the prudent course of action here. Either he shows enough to stay and becomes a regular again or hopefully ups his trade value. Worst case, he stinks and we have to outright release him, he clears waivers and goes to the AHL. .if they even have an AHL...
  4. Basically all the Flyers have left on their to do list is sign Myers. Very important to hold on to that extra cap space. There are some teams in serious cap trouble. 14 teams have less than a mill under the cap. Teams like Tampa are in real trouble. If Tampa does not drop 10 mill or so, they will not be able to play and have to forfeit games until they are csp compliant. 3 mill in cap space could get you a 1st round pick conceivably...or an outstanding player on the cheap.
  5. If we are not gonna win the Cup, I'd love to see some take no prisioners hockey!! Guys with high character and work ethic have one thing in common...they play with an unbridled sense of desperation...i miss that!!
  6. I was wondering the same thing, always a head scratcher when that many teams in such a short period are involved. He did score some really nice goals last year though. Worst case, he sucks and you bury 90% of his cap hit in the AHL. This would necessitate a 2 way deal of course. A 1 way deal would be a non starter. Thing is, even playing on the 3rd line with Laughts and NAK etc would be equal to the talent on Ottawas top line...or very close. His upside is 15ish goals...which makes the gamble worth taking...assuming 2 way deal.
  7. Just wondering out loud, if he was cheap enough, would Duclair be a decent option to strengthen the secondary scoring. I dont wanna block anyone, but Duclair on a cheap one year deal could work.
  8. He's decent on face offs...defensively responible and has 11 goals and 19 pts in 30 career playoff games...not to shabby. I agree with Zippity...he would make a solid 3C.
  9. I'll go with disturbing, but expected...lol.
  10. Gus will certainly need to be sheltered on the 3rd pairing with a defense first type of partner. My gut says this is all about the top pp and creating chances/passing lanes. That HAS to be fixed...so they are hoping a guy 2 yrs removed from 60 pts can get the job done. He is an excellent passer, but is also exploitable in his own end. If Ghost is no longer deemed the pp answer, this is an acceptable gamble...the answer did not really exist on the present roster...so Fletcher had to find an outside answer that was cost efficient and fit with expansion draft plans. Considering all the factors an
  11. I like him also...he's way better than just serviceable. He's 2 years removed from scoring 60 pts for Chicago, which is nothing to sneeze at. A respectable gamble.
  12. I think the plan is to have Gus on the top pp instead of Provs. As great as Provs is, his lateral movement is lacking, so no passing lanes open up. This will be good for the suffering pp. Keep Ghost in case of injury and let the Kracken take him or JVR in the expansion draft.
  13. Wonder how much it would cost to pry Marchessault outta Vegas? They are over the cap now having signed Piterangelo.
