I thought hockey players were superstitious?

I would have taken ten bucks less.

Spoooooooky... talking about 666 and superstitions in my 1134th post.

That spells hell upside down and backwards. :madfire:

maybe he's a Pat Quinn fan :sarcasm:

Well, good for Anthony. He had to produce this year to get a contract, and he stepped up. Going to be tough for him to make the AHL next year, though.

Rosko Thorn 05-26-2011 08:22 PM

right on, i'm actually pretty excited to see if he can make the AHL.

I hear the Leafs are only two key pieces away from it all.. perhaps they'd part with Schenn.

biturbo19 05-26-2011 09:37 PM

Cool. Will be interesting to see where he lands to start next season. Hopefully he'll manage to land himself an AHL job, as a guy with that blend of size/skill would probably be a good fit alongside some of our smaller skill guys. If he can continue to develop as a physical presence, i'd be interested in seeing him alongside a guy like Schroeder at some point. But that could be down the road a ways, depending on how he makes the transition to the pro game.

Can the signing of Erica Ehm be far behind?

:laugh: Scratch you off the list of possible "young guys" on the board.

smellmember 05-27-2011 12:36 AM

I think he is going to slay it in the AHL next year; I think he'll make it for sure.

laurensdad 05-27-2011 01:25 AM

With Steve Anthony signed who's going to do all those "A" Channel promo voice overs?

He really covered his bases. I guess we know what kind of "character" Gillis looks for now. :shakehead

I dunno about that... The kid has a big frame at 6'2, and isn't light at 190lbs. That alone may be his ticket to MAKE the team, even as a 4th liner. Will he have problems getting offensive production? Certainly. But I think Anthony is a player that will make the NHL one day as more than just a 4th line plug. He was once touted as a highly regarded prospect back before his draft year, then he dropped significantly due to off ice issues (which led to a lack of production). He seems to be playing pretty good now though, so maybe that's all behind him.

He couldn't even crack a PPG as a 20 year old in the Q, while playing for the league's best team. I would be shocked if he ever plays in the NHL.

Just an aside, but isn't that Anton Levay in your avatar?

back on track: anyone think they'll re-sign Rick the
temp?

Ya, you're probably right... There aren't any effective NHL'ers these days that bloomed late and weren't effective in Juniors.

yeah because every NHL player put up a ton of points on their junior teams right?

Ziostilon 05-27-2011 03:05 PM

if he makes the team, at least he'll be staying in Atlantic Canada

PRNuck 05-27-2011 03:20 PM

So has he played any games in the Mem cup yet, or still hurt?
