I really have no problem with him signing there at all. I actually said that would probably be the best option if he actually left NJ. I mean, it's better than spoiling Pittsburgh to death, right? I look forward to smacking the Wild.

Someone on the main board said Taylor Hall can be as good as Bure.

The Hawk board has erupted with news that Pierre Gauthier has been named Director of Player Personnel.

Good luck to the Hawks on the re-build that will be necessary upon Pierre's eventual departure.

The story from Habs fans, was that Bob Gainey was the Gm at that time but that Gaujier's "fingerprints" were all over the deal. Possibly true. Gainey was dealing with the sudden death of his daughter around that time.

So can we expect a Kane and Saad for Luongo and Raymond deal?

Thanks.

That's very sad about his daughter. I believe his wife passed away from brain cancer in the mid 90s. Very sad, indeed.

Oh man, Gauthier is a catastrophe that walks like a man. He knows how to tank a team in both official languages. Awesome that the Haws hired him.

There's a picture of him without a shirt on at the draft combine in 2010 and he's quite physically underwhelming.

Aaaaand I found it.

Looks like a good strong body for a young kid, looks like a body that could be massive with little effort

MAG to Caroline. So we basically traded Joslin for Gragnani.

You don't need massive pecs to be physically strong. He has massive core muscles, which is all you really need as a hockey player.

Take Crosby for example. That guy has worked out his entirely life for hockey, if you check out his pictures, he's not super jacked like others, but his core muscles are without a doubt in the top5 in terms of strength in the league today.

that's a strong 18 year old, and a frame that can put on 20lbs easily in a few years. the average hockey player tends to look like a soccer player, very lean. the good ones don't look like football players, only the laraques and boogaards.

Wolski on a new team again, crazy! i thought this kid had so much potential when he was in his first couple years in colorado

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/teams/players/bio/?id=4115

Sure wonder what happened to him, did well in colorado, traded to phoenix, put up decent numbers, then traded again. then again, and now signing a 600k /one year contract with the capitals

Seriously? His core was already that thick at the combine, he'll be a wrecking ball in no time.

Injuries. Wow, I wouldn't mind getting him for 600k for one year. Much better than Ebbet at the odd forward out. He is big at 6'3 215 too.

Hard to believe its just because of injuries? The guy played the first many years with playing most games in the season and only really had one year, this previous one where he had injury problems, that makes him that unwanted and worth 600k at 26 and his size and scoring ability?

Phoenix gave up on him pretty quickly

As did New York. Though I can understand a little more why New York did considering his not that great play before he got traded to them in combination with his play there but still

I rather have him as a spare part than Raymond, atleast one is capable of being a high producing player when hes on his game. and not just a scoring 3rd line winger, mason will never be stronger or have a better shot
