Good Ponikorovsky deserves to be playing on the last line. He sucks balls.

 

I'm almost tempted to break up the Hagman-Grabovski-Kulemin line up, even though they definitely seem to click. I want to see Tlusty get more ice time. I think he's played pretty solid this season and has worked on his game in his own end. I want to see what he can do with Grabs and Kule.

Blake needs to go, man-o-man what a horrible signing that has proved to be.

 

Very much so. He's bending the entire organization over.

Colaiacovo sits out, Van Ryn back in.

 

As of now, along with Kaberle & Kubina, Frogren, Stralman & Schenn have been guaranteed lineup spots. Van Ryn & Colaiacovo will rotate in and out of the lineup, so one of them along with White are likely going to be sent packing by the weekend when Finger returns.

Has there been any word on Cola being traded since Dreger brought it up a few weeks back?

Unless another defenceman "mysteriously" gets injured.

Dreger reported today that Cliff has been trying to put packages together involving Stajan, Ponikarovsky, Colaiacovo, White & Van Ryn. He's trying to get a decent forward out of somebody.

Blake is on pace for 394 shots on goal this season and 16 goals.

Add Steen to that list of potential outcasts and we might be able to land a decent forward/draft pick.

 

Steen/Stajan/Colaiacovo for Marchant/Ryan

 

Dum-dee-dum...

Joe Thornton? It's been done man, it's been done.

 

You can't possibly compare the Joe Thornton deal to the collection of shit the Leafs are serving up?

You don't even know what we'd be getting back you numpty.

 

Me or Jared?

 

I was merely responding to Jordo's 'decent forward' news. The Thornton example is just bad.

The only player on the Ducks who can score, Francois Beauchemin, makes it 1-0.
