Hey man, since you're an admin on the trade board I figure I'd ask: Would it be OK if you guys could merge all proposals involving Edmonton, NYR and Philly? It just seems like the exact same stuff has been reshuffled dozens of times over the past few weeks and it doesn't make the trade rumour forum seem all that fresh.
To be honest, Kesler and Brown's antics don't bother me one bit. They are extremely gritty, hard working, and dedicated. I love both their games. Now, when some fourth line plug tries it, I'm livid... lol.
Richards is a silent leader. My favorite player behind Quick. Such a great team player who will leave everything on the ice for his teammates and team.
Brown had a shoulder injury last year and we believe he's re-aggravated it. He plays so damn reckless, case in point him barreling into the boards in the third after getting that breakaway. He skates like Bambi learns to walk
I'm 99.9 percent certain Kopitar is injured. He's been wearing a knee brace since coming over from Mora IK. Sometimes I worry about Quick (well, all goalies actually) when they don't get many shots. He made the saves though, especially in the third, and weathered the storm.
The worst part about Richards being injured is he was by far our most consistent and hard working forward during these playoffs. Arguably a top-three player behind Quick and Doughty. He really carried the slack, especially in the earlier games, on the PP, and on the road. That's a tough, tough loss. The concussion-like symptoms hit when he skated out so obviously getting out there under the lights is a problem. He's day-to-day so hopefully we'll get him back sooner than later.
