You mean Justin?

Jeremy is a Maple Leafs Draft choice who has a whopping total of 4 goals in 20 games on his career.

Justin is the player who recently re-signed with Carolina and has two 30 goal seasons on his resume prior to his injury plagued year last year.

Jason is somewhere in between those two but he is not a bonafide 25 goal scorer, he hit 21 once. I can't believe he thinks he is worth $4mil based on 66 career goals. He's not even worth $2mil IMO.

Torres isn't going to be taking anyone out if he can't catch them. My friend was at his bachelor party a couple weeks before he was traded to CLB, and his knee is far from 100%, it's still mangled pretty bad.

I dont get that... the guy has had plenty of time to heal up. The injury was so weird. He like fell and that was it he was done for the year.

Knee injuries have finished many a career.

As for Williams, the guy sounds like a cancer that i want no where near the Oilers dressing room. We have a ton of kids looking for ice time, and i would like to save some cap room for the trade deadline if we are in a position to make the playoffs. No sense spending money for the sake of spending money.

You're off by 180 degrees.

He's the total opposite.
He was always the first Wing @ practice and the last off. He's the guy they have to keep the rink open for. He's an immensely and tirelessly hard worker who finds something new, physical, and hockey related to do every summer. One summer it was climbing mountains on mountain bikes. He sets an example.

As for relationships, I've heard nothing and always regarded him as a team guy.

Did I mention that he used to come to Prospect Camp and skate as filler long after he had made the Wings Major League Roster?

Very Hard Worker.

No. Its because hes not a goal scorer and never will be.

When Robert Lang became all about offense...AKA when he joined the NHL.

Never liked Williams, he makes way too many mistakes offensively to be a reliable winger. I hope he comes to his senses and gets that he's not worth what he's asking.
