Jumpin' the gun just a little bit, but hey, I gotta reinstate the empire.

Whoa whoa whoa that's just cold. Ice cold.

Forget #2C, forget Couture, Shep is the #1C of the future. But the sad part is the DW probably thinks that. :laugh:

Oh, and your mom's cold. Ice cold.

Man with Sheppard I gotta say, the team's future is looking pretty bright. :sarcasm:


Yeah well she still makes better pasta than your mom. I'm guessing.

Too bad we didn't sign Gilbert Brule /actually serious. He'd have been a nice depth player.

Probably. My dad, on the other hand, makes the best pasta evarr AINEC.

Both Sheppard and Couture were drafted 9th overall. They will be competing for the #1 center spot their whole careers.

…and they've both been playing since they were three years old. :amazed:

Logan Couture ⋅ August 1
Matt. I started at age 3. As long as its fun keep him in it. Don't push too hard. Let him enjoy it

Kitten Mittons 08-17-2012 12:08 AM

I guess we should've traded Couture for Nash. We got Sheppard to replace him.

SactoShork 08-17-2012 12:19 AM

Anyone know if Sheppard played center with the Wild? They weren't exactly deep in that position, and he's obviously got no shot at centering in San Jose, so I wonder if he's even familiar with playing wing.

Yeah I'm not sure what exactly DW did other than signing Burish this offseason. I really hope we don't go into the (hopefully full) season with the roster as it is right now.

Also I doubt that, my mom's pasta > your dad's pasta. AINEC. It's science.

kluu 08-17-2012 01:07 AM

Stuart should make an impact

Yeah, but Brule would have been a great depth player. He has enough skill that you can't send pylons out against him, even if he lacks finish, and he's a great banger, albeit frequently injured. I don't know how he didn't get an NHL job.

Pray tell though, explain to me this "science" thing with which you seem so smitten. :p:

EDIT: oh and @ lurking Slo, don't hate on the preemptive thread. :P

As long as he's better than Colin White. No high expectations for him right now. Last season we all were fairly happy with the White signing thinking he'd be the beast from the east he was in NJ but then he basically made us all think fondly back to the Wallin era.

That's probably why.

Oh and easy. All of the normal pasta stuff + cut pieces of bacon + sliced pieces of grilled chicken + motherly love = Best pasta ever. Science. ;)

WTFetus 08-17-2012 01:44 AM

My dad adds Ikea meatballs to his spaghetti. Can't get any better than that.

Well, if we have to keep Handzus, Brule would be perfect to have because we could decide who to ice game to game.


And then, you're forgetting that I mislike bacon. :p:

Assuming of course, McLellan doesn't do what he did with White and Demers last season again.

Not pasta bacon. No way. Unless like...you aren't human. :p:

Just wanted to let you know this should be 'Part VIIII'

Learn your Roman Numerals already, sheesh.

Well, Brule would assuredly miss half the season with injury, and frankly I don't want Handzus playing every night. :laugh:

But yeah, I just don't like bacon. Get over it. :p:

Cristiano 08-17-2012 01:36 PM

we should not try to do anything with our 1 and 2 line. It looks like a dream for any other manager of any other team. Goalie - cheap and strong is our main target. We are the best , but with Antti Niemi as number 1 we transform us into a member of lottery, understand?

Boyle for Backstrom + Kampfer , we need it.

) We must be Stanley Cup Champions? but our problematic goaltender make us as strong a as the other contenders , so the Cup becomes a lottery

Cristiano 08-17-2012 01:47 PM

Backstrom is not so cheap , ok

Yeah well who knows how Todd and DW feel. We all know how weird Todd is so he may have never played Brule again the minute he got injured and we'd be stuck with Zeus anyways.


Ok fine, moving on from the obviously false hate for bacon, the pasta is still the best ever. AINEC. :)

Why the hell would I fake hatred of bacon on the internet? :laugh:

But no, I don't think they have a cure for my horrible affliction, thanks for asking.

True. Sigh. We really need Moore to come back or a kid to really step up in camp like Wingels did last season.

Backstrom is an inferior goaltender to Niemi, so no we really don't.

So you can be a special little cupcake. :sarcasm: Oh and the cure is to eat bacon.

I really hope Moore comes back since I have very little faith in one of the kids to step up in camp.
