Not to mention the old whipping boys like Carle (because, again, people can't accept him for what he is - an above average offensive dman with a few defensive shortcomings, but many less than they actually blame him for) will undoubtedly still get railed on for DARING to have the 2nd best +/- on the team and 30+ points, for shame Matty, for shame.

Shelley will get a ton of **** until people start to fall in love with his "antics" ala Carcillo last year.
so-burnt took a pretty good run for the title last year but after his playoffs and so far preseason, he seems to have turned around. at 4+ mil if meszaros plays down to his role as a fifth defenseman theyll be calling him randy jones at twice the price. walker though is the the kind of big slow d people seem to get a solid hate on for and his contracts pretty bad too. both are new to many people so id give it till december.

i still miss yelling "YOU SUCK BUNDY"
