Congratulations Burnaby Joe!

Geddy on the schoolyards, circa 1996: "No guys, I'm telling you, it's pronounced SHA-KICH!"




"Canada trying to hang on and get a break...AND IT'S GONNA BE A BREAK! It is Jooooooe Sakic...SCORES!!! JOOOOOOOOOOE...SAKIC...SCORES! And that makes it 5-2 Canada...surely, THAT'S GOTTA BE IT!"

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

btw, now that Bure's 702 game sample size was deemed acceptable for induction, there's absolutely no way Lindros doesn't get in now, right?

His run from '92 to 2000 was pretty ****ing epic, injuries notwithstanding.

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

not happy about braun for three years, guess we just have to hope he steps up. to wimgels, esp at that price. I dont think hell turn into a superstar, but the way he fought onto the team, gained the trust of the staff, and played solid in his role shows a lot of intangibles/character.

I know we have a ton of goalie prospects, but I was hoping we'd hang onto Sexsmith. Happy about the rest, I'm in the pro-Braun camp.

Sharks should offer Demers to the Flyers, we've seen what Paul Holmgren gives up for RH defensemen.

Demers was definitely in the doghouse towards the end of this season.

as a 35+ player, hmm...

home to Alberta maybe a destination? or how about the Canucks given he played junior in Kamloops, and could go to church with the other Ned Flanders' in Hamhuis & Booth? (then we'd just need Mike Fisher to complete the set!)

It sucks that Demers regressed last season. Maybe we should manufacture some counting stats for him by putting him on PK1 and trade him to CBJ at the deadline.

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

Watching the pk last year was so infuriating. I dont endorse players like joe thornton and others being on the pk if they are really valuable at ES. Then, when watching, it doesnt seem like anyone cares about being in their position. I would see a ton of times where there would be two players behind the net, or chasing to much in general. On top of that, the defense didnt seem to have a sense of urgency when it came to getting people out of the crease. Praying its different next year.
