That's me, and I disagree. Don't feel like getting into a debate on HFboards though. If you disagree that Eller is not more than a 3rd line center (even though he's being played as one), then I don't know what to say... We have a difference of opinion - no point in butting heads.
My opinion is that Eller is not more than a 3rd line center FOR NOW, big difference!
but yes lets agree to disagree and sorry if Im looking rude not my intention at all
Am I the only guy here who doesn't drool over David Clarkson?
He was -20 3 years ago and was -6 and -8 the last 2 years. His scoring is down and he really isn't that big at 200 pounds.
7 years for a soon to be 30 year older is a bit much. Pass.
His scoring is not down. He did get 15 goals and 9 assists in the shortened season. So, he did do pretty well. But yeah, as far as scoring goes he has either been a late-bloomer or he benefitted from his situation. Let's say he has another good year and then declines. Clarkson then becomes our new albatross. He does have some of what we need, though. If he didn't cost so much, I would drool over him.
We were not going to overpay Clowe
Anaheim would have asked too much for Ryan
Lecavalier didnt want to come here
why not sign lapierre and trade for boll then? parros is an enforecer so hes not a minute eater, we need a solid 4th line that would give our top 3 lines a bit of breathing room.
not only would they do that but they'd also be able to fight/hit, we need more "team toughness" as opposed to goons
Not me. I never wanted the guy. Im more worried of Bolland though. He'll be a Habs-killer.
I never thought i'd hear someone say they where worried about bolland, Clarkson will be the better player agianst the habs, he'll be pushing smurfs out of the way left right and center, the guy is tough as nails and can shoot
Anyone else interested in signing Matt Cooke? I know he's got a bad reputation with injuring Markov back in the 2010 playoffs, but he loves to hit, and although he isn't the biggest guy for what he does, he can still be a very effective bottom-6 guy for us, contributing some offense, but primarily making us harder to play against.
