We don't want "a second liner for a loser team". We are only interested in "a second liner for a quality NHL team."

Seriously, is there anything more disrespectful to say on these boards? "Well, on any other team, he'd be a third-liner, but on YOUR sorry haphazard bunch of losing losers he'd be a second liner so you should pay us more." What the hell kind of argument is that supposed to be?

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!
