So, when one goes to the practice, is there a place you go after to try and get autographs? I know where the rink is, just was curious on how someone goes about it

We dont play till wednesday. If Varly doesnt start that game then Sacco needs to get hit over the head repeatedly with a piece of heavy mining equipment.

Dude yeah, Messi is amazing. Kind of funny that the smaller guys in sports like futbal and hockey are better than some of the taller guys.

But I REALLY like David Villa; The guys is just amazing. Xavi though is overrated like hell.

Doughty is one of my favourite players, but lately he has been playing in the toilet. I hope he can turn it around, but with that new contract he doesn't really need too.

I dunno, his level of play prior to the concussion was definitely top caliber. Right now though I'm willing to bet his time away from camp is seriously affecting him. We'll see if he turns it around.

So in short, no, not overrated. And if he's overpaid, then every franchise player in the NHL is.

I'm not talking his play this year, even tho it has been terrible. His play last year didn't scream hall of fame defender everybody jumping on his bandwagon. Is he a 1 defender yes but he is not a the great defender everyone thought he is.

Duncan Keith had an off-year too, but part of that was because the bottom dropped out of the Chicago blueline depth chart. Yes, putting him in the hall of fame NOW is definitely premature, but IMO he's still a franchise-caliber defender.

If there was ever an overrated defenseman in LA, it's Jack Johnson. How Lombardi handed out that contract to Johnson (the he negotiated HIMSELF) and then thought he could play hardball with Doughty is beyond me.

I think it was more to do with the Stanley cup hangover. Anyway Doughty is a good player but I don't think he'll ever be the best defender in the NHL and there's nothing wrong with that. I just don't see the future HHof Bourque type.

Anybody labeling Doughty as the next Bourque or Lidstrom is an idiot. But yes, at any given time there are not any more than two defensemen that I would take in this league over the guy, and that's not even counting his potential. He's a great defender.

And we shouldn't act like the Hall of Fame is some labeling of greatness still. It isn't really. Mid-level guys with good long careers get in, and it wouldn't surprise me if he came out as a top fifty or so defenseman all-time when all is said and done.

Really just 2? Lidstrom, Kieth, Weber, Sutur, Enstrom, Chara and Pronger. That's just the top of my head.

You two are both wrong. Xavi is not overrated.

Doughty is still very young. He had that great year a few seasons ago, and that sure elevated him to the limelight, but he still will be a top 10 D for a good long while once he matures a bit more.

When you hear best CM of all time or the engine that drives barca, I think so.

Agreed!

That's crazy talk. I've been to Barcelona this year to watch this team play. When Iniesta and Xavi aren't playing together, the transition game goes dry (from what I've seen on TV).
