You can clearly see in that photo that the blonde is smiling at the wallet he has in his shorts. Sure, she had to look through/around that fat gut of his, but she saw what she likes.

Sure he could.
Vinnie Damphousse confessed that he never lifted a weight and yet he had a pretty successful career.

Have you ever seen Keith Primeau without a shirt? I have and my penis is still recovering.

Lemeiux didn't start weight training until his 2nd comeback.

Eric Staal's chest has been described as 'bird like'. In fact, a steroid expert on XM radio once said that Staal would be the last guy to ever be accused of taking steroids. He said he thought he could punch a hole through his chest it was so narrow and brittle.

And finally, Wayne Gretzky couldn't bench 150lbs more than once during his prime.

There's lots of NHLers that shirk off workouts because their natural skill allows them to succeed without it.

But Wellwood has gotten the message that he should be a 70 point guy if he worked out, instead of a 55-point fat guy.

to sum it up, guys short on cash think girls like rich guys, fat guys think girls like skinny guys and vice versa, sensitive guys think girls like aloof guys, and agin, vice versa. Guys with senses of humour know girls prefer the serious and the serious never notice if girls like them anyways so....


The truth ? Girls like short thick legged men who can lift heavy objects.

Obviously to waste all of your time. Also, I wouldn't mind being a loser who has had a book published (not named Eklund of course).

Untrue. Oompa Loompa's may have gotten the "awwe soo cute" from the girls, but they never wanted to sleep with them.

I'll take your word for it as I've always been blissfully ignorant on the sex lives of Oompa Loompa's. I'm talking sturdy legged men who can walk a straight line with piano's on their shoulder.


thanls, I'll be humming that now until the young'un gets creeped out.

I'm really surprised the Leafs are giving up on Wellwood, if Sundin doesn't sign they'll need an offensive centre while they tank/rebuild and Wellwood could fill a hole, although not Sundin's shoes.

Does this settle the Wellwood vs. Higgins debates?

If Wellwood is a fat guy, I bet that Carolina tries to grab him.

Two examples of how JFJ belonged to the same club as Houle.

#5 Let any other tradable assets go without compensation. What good are draft picks?.. Oh wait.

And there you have it. 5 easy steps to rebuilding.
I'm no Leafs fan but you're simplifying things too much. Like it or not the Leafs have a very competent GM at the helm right now. Yes he could die any second but at least he has some sort of plan unlike JFJ or Quinn before him who had no real attainable goals.

1. Fletcher tried to trade Sundin at the deadline but Mats said no. So instead of letting him go for free he gives up his rights hoping to get something out of it. He didn't alienate anyone. If you're rebuilding why are you going to pay a player 7-8 million to help you win more games that mean nothing but a worse draft pick in the end? Of course they get rid of him.

2. He has too many NTC and NMC to get rid of and is trying his best. He almost got rid of Kubina and I'm sure he will eventually. McCabe could soon follow and maybe Blake. Take some useless salary off the team, smart.

3. They traded for a character player from Toronto who will go out there and give 110% every game. A good model to those young kids that will be taking over the team. You can't just have a team full of young guys.

4. If you think Luke Schenn's upside is Hal Gill then you know nothing about hockey. They got the guy they wanted, with the upside of Phaneuf, with less offence. Think Komisarek. I'd love to have that kid on my team and they made sure they got him.

5. Wellwood is clearly out of shape and I doubt Fletcher just assumed no one wanted him. He more than likely called around and no one wanted his or Raycroft's salary. Who cares, dead weight.

Say what you will but Fletcher is much smarter than you give him credit for.

Ok I have to disagree with your assessment of the leafs draft. I bet you really love komisarek on that blueline? If i recall you guys spent a pretty high draft pick on him as well(7th overall). Trading up to acquire a physical presence/future captain material/ with underated offensive upside was a very good move. That is the type of player Toronto sorely lacks, a solid building block to build a franchise around.

And Hall Gill? For his size he is remarkably soft. Schenn is the complete opposite of soft. Choose a better comparable next time.

Guys I'm not stupid, it was just a joke! No need for detailed analysis. I sarcastically said it to my co-worker Leaf fan and then on break posted it here.
