So we lose 2 games against good teams and Homer's idea of getting back on track is bringing up 3rd pairing, 3 mil defensemen Randy ****ing Jones back.... Isnt he like a -4 with 1 point in the AHL? Thats ****ing allstar material right there Homer.

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!

This is idiocy. Plain and simple.

Homer, I've lost all confidence in you. Time for Snider to step up and clean some house.

I didn't understand this, you got too many men there.

Carle-Pronger
Coburn-Timonen
Parent-Jones
Tollefsen

It will probably look like this, unless Jones is claimed or OKT is on the move.

Playing average hockey as a team, Time to call up an average defenseman who's contract makes him one of the worst players in the league ????

The top five would be: Pronger, Carle, Coburn, Timonen and Parent (in no specific order). The sixth (if Jones is claimed) would be between OKT and Syvret.

This is a perfect example of why I ****ing hate this team sometimes.

Isn't Bartulis called up? This makes no sense at all. If Bartulis is still called up then we have 8 d-men?

Timonen
Coburn
Pronger
Carle
Syvret
OKT
Jones
Bartulis

Wtf? Makes no sense. Parent is supposed to be coming back soon as well, then we'll have 9 d-men. This is just ridiculous. How many years does it take for this franchise to learn from their mistakes?

Jesus christ. Just when I forgot about this piece of ****, he rears his ugly ****ing horse face again. Why oh why will the Randy Jones saga not end? **** you Homer. If we get stuck with half his ****ing salary, I hope both Jones and Stevens both **** him up the ass.

To Homer he is, he signed him for a reason. But to Stevens he's just another Cote, I don't think OKT will play much under this coach.

I guess Bartulis is there in case Jones is claimed by another team, since he was JUST called back up. Either there are going to be a lot more scratched defensemen per game, Parent's injury is worse than thought, or someone is being moved.

I lean towards Parent not being back for a few weeks, Bartulis there as an insurance policy, which means whether or not Jones gets claimed we still ice 6/7 defensemen. Still confusing, and still awful, I know....

A predecessor to a trade? Maybe a team will only take him on half salary and will give us something in return.

Or maybe a showcase for a trade

There was discussion in Camp about keeping eight d-men (from late September):

http://www.delcotimes.com/articles/2...b516251642.txt

Quote:
Pronger and Carle should form a physical and responsible top pair, yet one that could more than occasionally transition into an extra attack option with Carle pinching up ice. And Timonen, reunited with natural playing partner Braydon Coburn, is looking to carry similar weight on both ends of the ice as a No. 2 combo with No. 1 ability.

With salary cap victim Randy Jones, who cleared waivers Monday and awaits his fate, all but gone, the back-end defensive duties will fall to the pairing of Ryan Parent and minor league grad Danny Syvret, along with free agent Ole-Kristian Tollefson as an understudy at No. 7.

Stevens mentioned the possibility of initially carrying an eighth defender, though that’s often thought to be too much of a luxury on a young team …

A bag of hockey pucks perhaps? Or am I crazy for suggesting he's worth that much?

If people think that Jones is actually healthy, he might get claimed. But he's probably still broken. I mean, if he was a healthy 4/5 defensman at the NHL level, he'd be dominating the AHL and he clearly isn't.

I can't recall Jones ever dominating anything but the minus column. Even in the AHL. Which still begs the question, why are we calling up an injured, sub-par, overpaid defensemen?!?

OHHHH I get it now, it's all part of Stevens' master plan! He WANTS another team to claim him, so that when we play them we can score as many goals on him as he let in for us! BRILLIANT!

Anyone? Second? John Stevens IS that brilliant right??

Randy Jones sucks. We should have just kept Kukkonen for 500k or something.
