<font color=goldenrod>Oh fuck you Garth. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO</font>

Iceman King Gertner 06-30-2013 04:40 PM

Good pick by Isles

Conspiracy Victim Vito 06-30-2013 04:42 PM

<font color=goldenrod>Pulock is ok. But I wanted Fucale. Especially since the Islanders literally used every pick on defensemen last year.</font>

Iceman King Gertner 06-30-2013 04:52 PM

They are drafting smart. Reinhart, Hamonic, Pullock, De Haan, MacDonald are a friggen solid core. Defence wins you games.

Iceman King Gertner 06-30-2013 09:34 PM

Leafs grab my guy Gauthier and trade for David Bolland! Hell fucking yes.

Conspiracy Victim Vito 07-01-2013 12:25 AM

<font color=goldenrod>I still really wanted the Islanders to take Fucale. That's no knock on Pulock, who I think can be very good - I just feel the Isles already have a lot of depth at defense and they very much need to get a goalie of the future. Also a bit disappointed with giving up on Niederreiter so early. I know his agent had asked for a trade, but he was still young so I would have like for them to have tried and smoothed things over. The Islanders had a good offense last year, but they don't have much organizational offensive depth if people get hurt.</font>

Iceman King Gertner 07-01-2013 12:42 AM

You can never have too much depth on defence. Teams covet it. Plus it can easily be dealt for an established goaltender.

It only cost the Leafs a 2nd and Matt Frattin/Ben Scrivens for Jonathan Bernier.

Emperor Smeat 07-01-2013 10:49 PM

Islanders bought out Rick DiPietro's contract today. ESPN compared that horrible contract to another from MLB.

Guaranteed about $1.5 million per year but won't count against the cap for the Islanders.

Iceman King Gertner 07-01-2013 10:54 PM

That is friggen ridiculous. Lol he'll be 47 by the time that's done.

Ermaximus 07-01-2013 11:02 PM

Dear Panthers, Get Better Please!

Iceman King Gertner 07-01-2013 11:15 PM

Barkov and Huberdeau are going to be incredible together.

Ermaximus 07-01-2013 11:19 PM

Huberdeau is pretty badass.

XCaliber 07-03-2013 06:56 PM

Not sure I like the idea of Daniel Alfredsson heading to the Boston Bruins.

Iceman King Gertner 07-04-2013 04:07 AM

Jarrett Stoll of the Kings suffered a seizure at his home. Pretty scary.

Emperor Smeat 07-04-2013 04:00 PM

Bs-Stars pulled off a big 7-player trade today.

Bs get:
Loui Eriksson
Reilly Smith (prospect)
Matt Fraser (prospect)
Joe Morrow (prospect)

Stars get:
Tyler Seguin
Rich Peverley
Ryan Button

Bs had hinted going into the offseason they wouldn't have been able to keep Peverly for next season because the cap is too tight. Seguin getting traded was more due to him being owed too much money and some off-ice concerns more than him having a bit of a down year in terms of expectations.

Stars are going to benefit a lot with Seguin as long as they can quickly settle the issues with his off-ice stuff.

Iceman King Gertner 07-04-2013 05:29 PM

That is friggen nuts.

The Frase

Daniel Alfredsson signed a 1-year deal with the Red Wings.

Nathan Horton signed a 7-year, $37.1 million deal with the Blue Jackets.

Blitz 07-05-2013 01:59 PM

I feel like the moves the Leafs are making are either gonna be extremely good or extremely bad.

spilzrvd_69 07-05-2013 02:02 PM

Chiarelli better fucking do something here.

Iceman King Gertner 07-05-2013 02:19 PM

Steve Dangle whose Leafs podcast had a great line

The good news is, the Leafs have a lot of money to spend
The bad news is, the Leafs have a lot of money to spend.

Loooooove Clarkson. Big part of me wants Matt Cooke. Can you imagine the douchebag line of
Cooke-Bolland-Clarkson

Blitz 07-05-2013 02:22 PM

I feel like there's enough toughness now without Cooke. Another proven goal scorer would be nice, but I feel like they're likely done for the most part.

Blitz 07-05-2013 02:24 PM

Saw the cover of the Toronto Sun today was like "Thanks, Boston!" for trading Tyler Seguin. Like what fucking sense does that make? He's still a great player we don't have.

Iceman King Gertner 07-05-2013 02:25 PM

The Toronto Sun honestly writes like a bitter Leafs fan.

Iceman King Gertner 07-05-2013 02:25 PM

Cooke is a fantastic penalty killer

Skippord 07-05-2013 02:31 PM

Free Agency Day? More like stare at a wall and be disappointed by the Avalanche day

although I don't know who they would've signed this year anyway

Iceman King Gertner 07-05-2013 02:33 PM

Lol that defense is rough. They gotta do something.

Skippord 07-05-2013 02:35 PM

I would probably throw some offer sheets out there

Winnipeg has 4 million RFA's so offer Zach Bogosian something or something. Or Alex Pietrangelo from St. Louis.

Skippord 07-05-2013 03:04 PM

why do they have this group of old dickheads talking about Daniel Alfredsson on this TV show?

Iceman King Gertner 07-05-2013 03:05 PM

You need your picks. That'd cost you multiple first rounders. The Avs are a couple years away.

Lol which show? I can't believe Alfie went to a division rival.

Skippord 07-05-2013 03:07 PM

That's true, although I do love me some Pietrangelo

I actually thought they didn't have a first round pick this year anyway, but apparently they do. So that's good to know.

The Free Agent Frenzy show on TSN. They have a bunch of Canadian Sportswriters talking about Alfredsson and shitting on Tyler Bozak

(NHL Network here, but I assume that's TSN in Canada)

Blitz 07-05-2013 03:15 PM

Fucking stupid tennis delaying Free Agent Frenzy on TSN. Reduced to watching The Score over here.

Iceman King Gertner 07-05-2013 03:17 PM

The Tim and Sid show is pretty solid. If I'm up early I watch them.

Skippord 07-05-2013 03:17 PM

Pierre McGuire is a slit away from having a straight up penis head

Yeah, we take the free agent day and trade deadline VERY seriously up here in Canada lol

Skippord 07-05-2013 03:20 PM

I feel like they should hire at least one interesting person for this next year

Iceman King Gertner 07-05-2013 03:22 PM

Who's on the panel? Bob McKenzie usually does it and he's always good as is Dreger.

Skippord 07-05-2013 03:23 PM

the best part of this is the reporters in the background huddled up and tweeting
