I hope Pronger sticks around a bit and continues to help out like this

Anyone else excited to have Sestito possibly in the lineup again? I felt like we did better when he was around last year, guy is a beast out there.

How has Luke Schenn looked at camp so far? I am actually really excited about him for the upcoming year, which probably means he will bomb lol.

briere and the recent addition of foster says theres room for one dimensional players it just depends on the element.

ive given up on football.the draw of hockey to me is that its a collision sport. thats the element that keeps me watching and i root for players (rinaldo and now schenn) that seek out that part of the game. its what makes the fact that those other guys can skate so impressive. but without the hunter, watching foxes run is boring on the national geographic channnel.

with the lockout ive had time to think about it and while the season is on i get caught up in whats going on and i root for the team but as an investment in time vs enjoyment im actually pretty glad i gave up my partial plan. with the price of a ticket being the same as my peco bill its not worth it without the chance of watching somebodys lights go off.

These have been pretty set:
Hartnell - Giroux - B. Schenn
Fedotenko - Read - Simmonds
Talbot - Couturier - Voracek
Assuming Briere ends up somewhere on the 2nd line do you think Read moves down to play with Couturier and Voracek?

I'd think Fedotenko gets bumped down.

I am excited to have Sestito in the line up. Him and Rinaldo out there together should be fun to watch. He's got some hockey sense as well. Not tht he'll be scoring goals but he isn't a complete liability out there. The game against Dallas last year had Rinaldo, Sestito, and Zolnierczyk on a line. Their forechecking was relentless. Hopefully that happens again this year.

With Redden being bought out by the Rags, thoughts on kicking the tires on him?

Most of the experts think he'll play in the NHL this year at a much more reasonable rate. Given the back-half of our defense and the injury question marks, I don't think it would be the worst thing in the world.

I think he is still a very capable 5-6, possibly even 4... if he was on 2mil he would not been buried, but 6.4 mil was just impossible to pay for a non top 4 dman! He was arguably better in the AHL than Souray was as well, and that guy proved he can still play in the big league.

At a lower price, he is better than Gervias, Lilja and Foster.

I rather go after Gomez. Have Gomez center the 3rd or 4th line so we don't have to burn a year off of Laughton's ELC on a shortened season. Could probably bring him on a cheap deal one year reclamation contract too. A line of Gomez, Read, Simmer would be good in my opinion would also allow Couts to play a more offensive role. Again just my opinion.

Hartnell-Giroux-Briere*
Schenn-Couts-Vora*
Read-Gomez-Simmer
Feds-Talbot-Wellwood/Rinaldo/Sestito/Shelly

*denotes could switch

was gonna say the same thing. Rangers were much better off on defense then we are and he simply isn't worth the money he's getting but at a significant discount i don't think it would be a bad idea.

New development today: TSN link

Quote:
The NHL and NHL Players' Association have come to an agreement on players being forced to stay home for salary cap reasons this season.

According to TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com, teams are now eligible to exercise an "accelerated compliance buyout" on one player with a salary cap hit of $3 million or more before the regular season begins on Saturday.

If a compliance buyout is used this week, a team will have only one left to use next summer.

That could be good news for players such as Scott Gomez and Wade Redden, two players who are not playing this season because if they got injured, their teams could not buy them out after the season.

Good to see Pronger and the Flyers undoing the damage done by the Leafs. Apparently he lost the weight they told him to put on then punished him for, and now Pronger is teaching him how to properly screen a goalie with your hand. "Make sure it looks like you're directing the play! Don't try this with Auger around."

Meanwhile the Leafs want to make JVR a center and have discovered his signature move. We take a borderline bust and repair him. They take a borderline bust and bust him harder. Toronto is a silly place.
