Unbelievable.

Now we have to have Enqvist up all year. What a waste of a roster spot he is. Doesn't hit, doesn't win face-off's, doesn't score.

Engqvist is indeed a useless fantasy league player. Though the same can be said about Betts, who is basically a polished version of him.

Kills penalties, doesn't get scored against.

We have no push-back, and nobody on this team can win face-off's. Steckel was something like 80% against us.

Poor Carey has to limit the other team to 1 goal or less, or we have hardly any chance of winning the game.

How does that even make sense?

We didn't lose Alex Ovechkin, we lost Betts. How the **** does that equate scoring 1 goal or less. Did acquiring Betts all of a sudden mean we were going to score 5 goals a game?

Wow talk about a jump in logic.

I'm confused how losing Betts has anything to do with us scoring more than 1 goal per game.

I don't see how Betts could have failed his physical. He was playing and practicing with the Flyers...

I'd have zero problem signing Madden. Not to mention the guy already knows Gomez and Gio.. Id think its a better addition then Betts imo.

I think he got hurt during the last pre season game but no one thought it was significant. Thats what I remember hearing from someone on the Flyers board.

Should get a penalty for not following protocol(I'm assuming you can't waive an injured player).
Don't be pissed because their GM has a pair of balls.

If we didn't laugh we would cry.

We should defintely pick up Madden, I also wouldn't hate Grier, although we need centres more than wingers. We definitely need a physical veteran presence on the bottom two lines, Grier is a + player with plenty of hits. Put up 16 points and 112 hits in 73 games last year, good for a fourth liner IMO.

Not sure how putting an injured player on waivers is having a pair of balls.
