Essentially, if you want to remain a Thrasher fan, come to the 'Canes board!!

I'm also tempted to draft BTN and force him to admit we don't dive.
But that would be denying facts

I'll enter into this, although I imagine that I will go undrafted.

Scouting report: Not the most consistent poster nor does he have the best stats (posts). Active in supporting team and can be the time zealot if required. Despises Canadian markets, save for Montreal. Highlight: Predicted Boulton's hat-trick before the game. Remarkable feat that deserves the accolades, although debatable whether repeatable. High risk, high reward poster. Works best for less established fanbase.

I'm definitely in. But just to be clear, my alligence will be split likely. Really won't know what to think if they move.

P.S. CAN NOT GO TO TAMPA. I WILL RETIRE TO STAY AWAY FROM THERE. (Sorry Tampa, it just can't be done. No offense.)
I post the most, so I have first say on who we take. You're the poster I want. I think you have what it takes to be a top line poster that can produce in all situations. In game, off topic, off season, player personnel and criticisms.

I'll even trade up in the first round.

You are doing it wrong, be like the Pens fans and embrace it.

I would become a proponent of diving if put in that situation, and berate Canes players that don't dive well.

I'll get in on this. Although I'd probably favor towards Colorado, as they were my favorite team before the Thrashers came here, idk.

I can use the laughs. I'm In.
I'm very cynical, lurk more than I post, have a a very dry sense of humor.

I'll go anywhere but Canada or the NYR. Fingers crossed for Carolina, Florida or Nashville.

I'm willing to change my name to RoyalAnton

I'll put myself in the draft.
I'm an Aussie but I know my NHL stuff.
I won the board fantasy hockey last season and was top 5 this season.
Huge fan of Kovy so NJ is very appealing as too Nashville as I can stay close to Atlanta and am a big country music fan.
Have been to NHL games in Toronto, NYR, LA, Nashville and of course Atlanta.

If the Thrashers really do move, Winnipeg's gonna need someone to make avatars.

I just hope I don't have to make waivers. I wouldn't want to be picked up by the Isles!

(Yes, I realize this is a draft, but the intent of the joke is there.. )

And there's a new contender for the Canes first round pick.

He shouldn't be draft eligible, should be sent directly to Winnipeg. Just a thought.

Wings are looking for a young guy with a lot of upside. We've got too many old grumpy goats who seem to find ways to criticize even Lidstrom, but given the Detroit loyalty thing, we keep them on and have to move up prospects when they're over-ripe.


Would prefer someone who doesn't always blame the goalie either.

I have my doubts about Washington and Tampa but would take a rookie contract to Fla. or Carolina in the SE. Dallas is about as far West as I could handle for weeknight games.

My MO is mostly as a sh*tdisturber and a middleweight enforcer. I probably lead the board in Penalty Minutes (infractions)

irrelevant sarcasm and laughs are the reason I play, but I can go round and round in a debate confusing logic with just plain southern stubbornness in order to stick up for my team, or to hate them, lol. Locker room vet, I can tell some stories from the good ol' days dating back to real Atlanta hockey....Flames style.

Might go undrafted and will look to hook up as a free agent on a team loaded with 3rd and 4th line talent....wait, we just lost that team.

Ottawa is the only Canadian team I'd consider!

I wouldn't expect to be a high pick at all as an older prospect. But you never know, there's always a couple teams that suck at drafting.

Here's the deets:

Calm under pressure: usually responds to the most hate-filled post with incredible patience and rational discourse (Mainly because this is the exact opposite reaction the OP is looking for, hilarious to see their confusion. Veiled sarcasm thrown in at no extra charge).

Edge to his game: will occasionally turn bi-polar and not hesitate to lay into someone who has the facts wrong.

In the locker room: always throw in a joke, even on the most serious posts/topics. Yeah, not everybody gets my dry and occasionally blue wit. I'm old.
