You're probably one of the ones who thought Latendresse should make the team at the expense of Perezhogin too right?
Perezhogin is far superior to Latendresse at this point, and the same goes for Bonk vs. Kyle.
Let the good play at least a year in the AHL on a good team. It will do nothing but help him.
I agree that Perezhogin > Latandresse at the moment, and ne1 who thot Perezhogin shud be booted for him obviously has too much faith in young kids. Fact is, not everyone is an ovechkin or crosby. Even people picked FIRST overall have been complete crap before (Alexander Daigle). Either way. I think Kostitsyn should've been brought up rather then Latendresse.
Yeah and fact is, how do u get rid of bonks salary? You don't cause no team will take him. Therefore still remaining the same idea as all along, you can't dump bonk, u can't get sum1 to replace him, plain and simple.
Bonk is slow at best (some could say very slow)...and he looks even slower cuz he's playing with 2 guys who have a good amount of speed. There lies the problem...he's holding them back. The reason he looked "quick" in the pre-season was cuz a) he was playing against non-nhlers and b) he was playing with slow to average speed players (ex; Latendresse). I guess it's sort of a "placebo" effect...by seeing other players around him who were as slow or slower, people suddenly thought Bonk was "fast".
The fastest I've ever seen Bonk skate is back when there was an uncontested puck at around centre ice and he was trying to beat a defenceman for it with an empty net waiting at the other end of the ice.
If we resign Bonk, I think I just might have to kill Gainey...
You mention Bonk playing good hockey...The guy has 45.8% FO wins, 3 giveaways and 0 hits. You call that good hockey? Open your eyes... The guy is nothing but a fourth liner, and has been dragging the 3rd line down.
Funny... you used to be a gigantic fan of players like that. I wonder what changed your tune.
all this ' good defence ' and ' experience ' crap, give it up people, bonk has SUCKED since he got here.... the only reason to keep putting him out there is because he is more talented than half the team, so you would assume at some point he would get it together, and yes, chipper could use a year in hamilton . Next year Colorado will sign him( they love those washed up ex-habs), and we can forget the reign of radek ever happened
