Well there was also the public intoxication arrest, which was overstated but probably not very good for him.

Cringeworthy. I just can't let it go; I have no respect for these pretenders. Them and their SE compadres are killing me.

I don't know why they bother me so much, I don't have a horse in that race but what can I say other than they suck bad.

That was so poorly timed/placed. Draconian liquor laws allowed cops to arrest sober people in restaurants on grounds that they APPEAR to be drunk. Land of the Free..

I was actually referring to his divorce and subsequent re-marriage to his wife and baby mama. I havne't really kept up on the guy but I read about it on 25stanley once.

It really sucks that the Bruins played an afternoon game today - the day before a divisional match with Montreal who are playing a night game against Pittsburgh. A game that will likely be very physical.

What a wussy schedule the Bruins have.

I really like Carolina's third jersey.

Am I only one who finds them underrated?

Alexander Semin with another 2 assists today.

He now has 18 points in 20 games. Only 4 goals, but that's what an unlucky 6.1% shooting percentage will do to you. He's doing this with the 5th highest Corsi Rel QoC on the Canes,

So many people didn't want him on the Habs this summer. I remember a lot of people actually would have preferred Shane Doan: lol.

We might have another chance to sign Semin this summer. It wouldn't be a good move: Semin has the necessary package of skills, talent to become the new Kovalev, but he's also an excellent defensive forward to boot.

I'd take Semin over Ovie at this point. His goal scoring is streaky, but he's more complete.

I'd certainly take Semin over Ovechkin, but that's because he will be cheaper in cap hit, in term, and in traded assets (assuming we get him via the 2013 UFA market) than Ovechkin. I think Ovechkin will be the better player averaged out over the next decade.

BTW, in case it's not clear, when I write that:

"Semin has the potential to be the new Kovalev"

I'm going for the double-meaning. Semin can certainly average 70 points per 82 games here with a decent mix of goals and assists, be a 6'2" man in the offensive zone, give us that gamebreaking ability from the wing, and stabilize our offense for years to come. The players are a little similar, Semin has slightly more injury history, and is somewhat better defensively.

At the same time he can polarize the fans. The dim and the dull will be able to congregate together to complain that Semin is lazy and that they hate him.

To get rid of the Rookie User thingy you have to let in 7 goals against the Penguins.

Either that or send a check to PO box 17115 and address it to Lafleurs Guy...

Can't stand him. Glad he's gone. Don't want him back. He is a cancer and exactly the kind of gutless player we should be staying away from. The Boston incident alone should ban him from our building for life.

Koivu wanted to stay and I think he was really hurt not getting an offer from us.

One of those demons being that he's a dumbass.

Koivu had said multiple times he will end his career in Montreal. Though it wouldn't have been good PR to low ball him to a contract. He would have signed it. His life was Montreal. Montreal did the right thing though, moving on.

I'm happy for him he got the 3 million contract from the Ducks. This season it seems he has rejuvenated. 20 points in 20 games and leading the ducks in PP goals. Hoping for a long post season for him and the Ducks.

EDIT: I love how Brendan Gallagher said he asked if it's OK for him to take 11 as it was Koivu's old number and he knew Gomez "also wore it in between". Such nice words about Koivu's contributions also after that. It wasn't asked of him, he didn't need to show respect, but he chose to. I like when a young player shows that kind of class.

Some good players have worn that number. Kirk Muller for one.
