In Busch gardens. Hotter than two rats *****ing in a wool sock, under a coal stove.

Disappointed... No signing yet. We're sweating for you Buffalo. Get 'er dun Darcy!

Wow, Roy goes from playing with us to possibly playing with Jags? I imagine he's pretty happy with that.

Weird decision by Jagr though.... he could have taken the $3.5 million offer that I'm sure most teams would have given him, and played for a real contender, and instead goes to Dallas - a playoff team, most likely, but not a true SC contender. Guess it really is all about the money for some guys.

I can't blame him for taking the $$$...He's already a multiple stanley cup champion, and future HOF....He has nothing to prove...

And really I don't think DAL has that bad of a club....BOL to him, I've always like watching him....

But they are a contender. They just got Derek Roy.

As for Pyatt, can you believe he's had two straight years of 130+ hits? He never became the offensive force he was expected to but he learned to use his size.

it's possibly the last time he'll be able to make this kind of $$ and a million bucks ain't exactly chump change, in case you forgot. How would you feel about leaving almost 25% on the table?

Hits are worthless unless you get the puck.

GMJN said he expects Eriksson-Benn-Jagr which would lead me to believe it will be Whitney-Roy-Ryder

That line sounds like it has the potential to be one of the best puck possession lines in the whole league.

So Carolina is pretty active in the trade rumors.....(Nash, Ryan) ... Realistically what do they have to offer? .. I can't think of much besides Skinner which I'm sure they;re not willing to part with.

I think they blew their wad on Staal, so I'm not sure either.

Maybe something around Faulk, Dalpe or Murphy?

Too bad Anderson Cooper isn't a NHL GM, or we could have GMAC.

If your hammer is making a "klinking" sound... it might be time for a new hammer...

If only they could get Oskar Osala, and convert Mike Lundin to wing.

Then you could have an Osala-Benn-Lundin line.

Saw on main boards that Coyotes forward/prospect Brett MacLean suffered a medical emergency while playing a game of pick-up hockey in Owen Sound and was airlifted to the Cardiac ICU in a London hospital.

Hope he's OK.
