I hope that guy wasn't one of the ones that said we'll be better this year.

I see. I don't bother giving hits to ghetto tabloids, so I was going off the title of the thread.

We'll find out how the team does with the circus around them this season. Carlyle may need to step up his media game.

And how Kessel lacks social skills.

And how there is no one else to be a leader and be able to communicate at a baseline level to the media than the comeback kid Joffrey Lupul.

This can't be news to you.
Is that you Feschuk?

Yup, now the players will have to answer to every moronic piece of **** Cox/ Simmons/ Berger etc. write to stir up crap for nothing, and the 'intelligent' hockey fans in Toronto will eat it up and recycle it like fact, and then wanna fire Nonis/ next gm/ gm after that/ etc wondering why nobody wants to play in this 'special' hockey market. And 40 years from now we will be able to keep talking about all the great names we keep running out of this market, while staring down a 90 year cup drought.

This place is hilarious!!!

I agree with the sentiment that Sundin is the last face of the franchise, and we don't really have a solid one now.

I remember John Torttorella really schooling Vinny behind the bench during those stanley cup playoffs back in the day and all that... he yelled at him like an angry turtle. Tortorella played a huge role in making Lecavalier a better player, and a better Captain of course. He teached him so many things.
Vincent Lecavalier went through an amazing journey of growth with his sensei: John Tortorella

Or the weak of stomach....

Apparently being a reporter isn't for the strong of mind either....Or of the intellectually honest... Or he'll, even of the creative anymore. I don't think they even try anymore.

Well it got you all upset, ranting on Hfboards about it so he's gotta be doing something right, no?

I think it's spot on actually. The only player with a personality and the game to back it up is Lupul.

You call it something right, I call it continuing the legacy. Have at it.... See you in 2053!!!

Ps- I had no doubt you would think it was spot on... Being such an 'apologist' for the media and all.

What exactly is so wrong about this article?

You've been making quite a scene in here but said zero about the actual content of the newspaper article.

Hopefully phaneuf takes it better then some around here. If I were Nonis, I'd put up a note in the dressing room telling everyone not to read that article to Dion.

I kid, I kid.

The article itself is the problem.

So you don't have a problem with the words Feshchuk wrote in the article, but you have a problem with the article existing.

Am I getting that right?

You don't feel people should have a right to write about the team?

Not a big freedom of the press and speech fan?
