There production might be similar, but a young Gonchar was more dynamic offensively

In his first three seasons, Gonchar scored 78 points. In Whitney's first 3 seasons, he scored 137.

Gonchar had 30 goals in his first 3 seasons. Whitney had 32.

I don't see how Gonchar was more dynamic.

Why would you trade assets just to have the right to negotiate exclusively with a player until July 1? If I'm Malone I'm thinking to myself I'd rather test the open market and see what is the most I can fetch. Unless of course he is itching to play for the Jackets.

Now I've heard it all. Whitney doesn't hit enough, doesn't play defense well enough, doesn't use his size enough, and now, he doesn't expose himself enough.

Now I understand.

Nothing clears the crease like an exposed taint.

The Pirates need to pick a sport before they can qualify as a team.

Portzline says we could see a deal for Malone's rights today or tomorrow.
