Still kinda reeling that we couldn't get Suter. Seemed like a slam dunk for weeks now.
signing semin >>> giving up assets for nash imo, esp with howsons ridiculous demands for him.

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

wings just need to backup a money truck for carle. If they can get semin and carle, it somewhat salvages the offseason.

Keep listening to people like burnside, lebrun, and damien cox then I guess you start buying the hype that you're the only franchise worth talking about/signing with in the NHL

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

Penguins should sign my boy Andrei Kostitsyn.

His down year + reputation as a lazy russian would make him cheap and on a short deal, but he has legit hands/shot/speed/size and would easily score 30 goals playing next to The Croz.

I'd be down for that. Terrific shot, doesn't shy away from the physical game. What's been the issue with him in Montreal?

Mostly dumb turnovers and inconsistency in his offensive production, but that can be explained in part by getting mostly defensive assignments playing with Plekanec/Eller.

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

I am so glad that with their offseason acquisitions, the WCSF this year will bounce back from the atrocity that was LA-Nashville-St Louis-Phoenix and be something more like Calgary-Edmonton-Minnesota-Winnipeg this year.

THIS IS WHERE HOCKEY BELONGS

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

In 3 years the jets wild rivalry will be the best in the NHL. I went to the game at the X this year and it was insane. Like 2000 crazy fans from wpg, despite the fact that both teams were terrible.
