By Brink, he means Holmgren tried to order some chinese food, hit the wrong number, dialed another gm, they talked, the other gm convienced holmgren to order italian instead, but Holmgren said he can't handle greasy food and then hung up.

Therien said during the broadcast last night that Laviolette wanted the full complement of healthy players (Gagne, Emery, Powe, the return of Betts, etc.) before making moves.

with a good trade rumor ? Damn Right.

Problem is that the only hole that needs filling is goaltender.

I've seen other talented teams like the Flyers (this year) seemingly struggle when they don't believe in their goalkeeping.

That and learning to gel. We aren't even 40 games in, you can't add a new top 'D', goalie etc and just have them playing gangbusters out of the gate.

Check back with me after the olym-bics when they are in 4th.

I think they are serious about cutting down on them, but it's hard breaking bad habits after being the most undisciplined team in the league for 2+ years without Stevens ever seriously addressing the issue. It will take some time.

Oh and your last point is hilariously true on these boards. "If you can hit and fight... your a winner in my book!" Skills are overrated
ill own up to this. i love me a solid mucker/grinder type. i love it when a skill player is "one of mine" ala richards but i rarely find myself feeling attached to the fancy shmancy types.

Yea but... thats the stuff that wins us games. Hitting everything and not scoring goals wont win us anything. Well, lottery picks but thats about it.

The Flyers have both types of players. There's really no excuse for the way they've been playing, even while Stevens was still behind the bench.
