You don't throw your teammates under the bus. That's the big deal.

Now get rid of WW and I literally have no complaints about this team for the first time in my life.

Never heard his comments about Avery till right now....much ado about nothing huh?

Add another American kid to the roster. Almost time for me to bring an "America ***** Yeah!" sign to a game.

Why would adding another American player be the answer?

Should it matter where a player comes from? Of course it does not.

Wish him luck, amazing how effortless his goal scoring and passing look... that's probably his problem though

I wish EC the best of luck in Minny!!

And I think if EC wasnŽt that inconsistent, he wouldnŽt be so much hatred then he actually is.
I donŽt have anything about him, seems like a nice person and teammate.

So again hope youŽll doinŽfine down there!

Yeah, God forbid American fans of an American team want more Americans.

Glad our pp is so great that we do not need to give him a chance on the pp. Richards might be the answer, we should go and sign him until he is 40 so he can help the pp and center For Gabby, oh wait!

EC had a chance on the PP btw.............also if the Rangers dont have Richards they are not first overall. He gives them two lines that are threats..........yea he's struggling but he's an established vet and will be there when it counts

This.

He's not a match here anymore, but let's not orget that he did win some games in the shootout - I wouldn't be surprised i he quietly asked or a trade to get some real playing time in a contract year. Good deal or everyone involved...

I understand this point of view. I truly do. It is also a perfectly natural mindframe. You root for people from your own country, region, religion or heritage. Everbody does this and it will never end. A very basic and ancient trait of humanity. And it is a good thing - to a certain degree. Since I have lived in 9 countries I am no longer sure what I call home any more. I root for whoever I like in the sports world for what they deliver on the playing field - regardless of nationality, race, religion or political preference. But that is just me.
I believe it is only when blind patriotism becomes an ugly ignorance that one has to wonder and beware (and this is not the case here at all imo). A couple of very good quotes on the subject from brilliant minds imo are:

Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind.
Albert Einstein

Patriot: the person who can holler the loudest without knowing what he is hollering about.
Mark Twain

PEACE!!!

He didn't say that he hates anyone that isn't an American...

Why do New Yorkers root or NY teams? Misguided state loyalty? Swedes go crazy or Team Sweden, are they savages? This is the stupidest post I've ever read. We are discussing hockey, not WW3..

Please reread my post. I am saying exactly what you are saying. You root for whoever you identify yourself with and that is a good thing. Nowhere did I mention savages, politics, WW3 or anything which you insinuated. Or even touch the subject of hatred.
Sorry for offending you with my stupid post.

"I wanted things to work out in Minnesota and it's disappointing that it didn't," Wellman said. "I had some chances there, but stuff like this happens and I just look forward to the future and hopefully I get a good opportunity."

Wellman was assigned by the Rangers to the AHL Connecticut Whale.

"I still think he's going to find his way and become a regular NHL player, but we have a lot of returning forwards next year and we have six young prospects that are turning pro," Fletcher said. "I can assure you it wasn't a case of offering Casey around, but we've been working on this for a couple weeks. We tried several different options, and this is what they insisted upon."
http://www.startribune.com/sports/wild/138689284.html

Quote:
An organization source told The Post that while the scouting staff was impressed with Wellman, the Blueshirts opted against making an offer to the California native who was being courted by several teams promising immediate roster spots.
Quote:
One GM told The Post that he has encountered several situations in which agents are "demanding" that college free agents be placed immediately on the NHL roster as a condition of signing.

"I told one agent, 'You like our organization so much that you want me to sign the player to a contract that will allow him to become a free agent and leave our organization as quickly as possible,' " the GM said. "Exactly how does that work to my benefit?"
http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/range...6ICWu1N5r7JlGJ

Wellman played in the NHL after signing with Minny using up 1 year of the 2 year ELC.
