Really think Hunwick could overcome size and have a good NHL career. Was always infatuated with his play in Michigan. Already jumped on him in my keeper league

Think this is a heads up move by Howson.

Actually, it does. He will not be worse than Steve-O, that's a fact.

Oh well, I'll follow the score (and comments here) and watch the Jets game instead.
Of course you can still watch the game! http://www.firstrowsports.eu/sport/ice-hockey.html is your friend.

Umberger-Brassard-Atkinson
Prospal-Letestu-Nash
Russell-Johansen-Dorsett
Gillies-Boyce-Boll

Johnson-Savard
Nikitin-Lebda
Johnson-Moore

So 10 of our 18 skaters probably don't belong on an NHL roster, and we are going with two goalies that are EHCL caliber. That's impressive.

Prospal-Letestu-Nash
Russell-Johansen-Dorsett
Gillies-Boyce-Boll

Johnson-Savard
Nikitin-Lebda
Johnson-Moore

York
Hunwick

That's what happens when you are a seller at the deadline and have the injuries this team has.

What is the big deal?

We have been playing ECHL goalies all year, with the exception of our AHL goalie, Sanford.

I am not sure York lacks talent...just experience.

I think this makes the game more interesting...at least there is something different to watch other than Mason imploding again.

Maybe Mason's injury is emotional distress from his new mask being damaged. He just didn't want those new pads to get scuffed up as well.

Feeling a rant coming on, but I'll try to be contain most of it. I am tired hearing from the very same folks who were pushing the "fail for Nail" tank movement and getting pissed off if we won now bashing the team since they've finished a convincing 30th. You got what you wanted. If they had finished ANY higher these past two months I swear some posters would have formed a protest. Protest is all the rage ya' know.

It is this same bunch of posters who will be croaking and moaning through the 3-5 year "rebuild" they lobbied so hard to get. Be careful what you wish for. You think we are bad now? Wait...

My evidently naive and optimistic fan nature maintains a hope for a win EVERY time they hit the ice. It is not my nature to encourage a "fail".

My ticket buying loyal seat-sitting self hopes and prays that Nash somehow stays so I can still see him play at Nationwide. If not, I wholeheartedly thank our Captain for his service to this franchise and the pleasure of watching his level of skill represent our city.

I love my team. I love hockey. I'll be there AGAIN, cheering for the CBJ.

Part of it could be the way they lose Derb; as in lack of effort, lethargy, four or five goals in the first ten minutes, goal deferential stuff like that.

Whitney played three games that year. Sanderson and Knutsen were out for all three of them, and Vyborny was in only two of them.

I think you miss the subtleties of the situation.

1. No one wants their team to finish 30th on day 1 of the season. At least, no one I know. So, saying that people wished for us to Fail for Nail is somewhat misleading. People wished for us to get the #1 pick once it became abundantly clear that we were not going to attain our real goal--making the playoffs to have a chance at the Stanley Cup.

2. Given #1, no one is happy with the result of this season. Would the pragmatic amongst us have been less happy finishing 29th rather than 30th? Sure. But you are talking a marginal difference. No one wants to see there team lose. Let alone lose enough that they are drafting #1.

3. Personally, my ability to stomach a 3-5 year rebuild is largely determined on who is in management from the top down. If it is the same bunch of losers (president, GM, scouts, etc.), yes, I probably will find it hard to sit quietly and hope that come year 10 the result was different than year 5.

I love my team too. But wanting to make lemonade out of lemons does not make the bitter taste any more palatable as the fifth glass goes down my throat.
