Who in Adirondack possess a two way deal that we could rotate up for a game or two?'

At this point really wouldn't mind sitting Harts, and Simmer for a game.

Bring up Cousins and Akeson?

You have no patience. That's your problem. Luckily, most teams don't operate on 15 game sample sizes.

If we accept the fact that we are no good, then why the hell would we look to trade Couts and BSchenn? I would rather them stay at the level they are at that make a trade that turns out like the JVR one.

Timmy P. is crying about Giroux not wanting to talk to him. He's lucky he answers his stupid questions when the team's playing well. I hate our media. Bunch of clowns.

I'm also not completely opposed to certain moves. But, Giroux, Voracek, B. Schenn, Couturier, Read, Simmonds, Mason, Lecavalier, Grossmann, L. Schenn, and Gus should all be off the table.

Ironically enough, a big part of the reason they haven't won a cup in 36 years is because they've failed many times to show even an ounce of patience.

I don't even know why they care. Do they just want to hear the same cliche answers again and again?

The hack writers don't know how to actually analyze or break down a game properly without dedicating half an article to quotes, and twisting them. He's just annoyed that he may have to do some work.

These entitled jackasses need to realize they don't NEED to talk to players to do their job.

Apparently not talking to the media means you're a bad captain. What?

At this point Snider would do it regardless, he's that hell bent on trying to get that last cup but there's other places that have passionate fan bases who show up constantly & their Owners/GM's remain patient (example Toronto).

No kidding. Get in there and write a story breaking down the game from start to finish. You don't need the quotes, unless of course Timmy wants to add his TMZ spin. **** that bridge troll.

This is what started it with Richards, actually.


So, it begins again.

That's revisionist history right there. I can't remember any sizeable contingent of fans that wanted Richards traded. Everyone was in utter shock when he was moved. Some people were bitter about Carter's underwhelming playoffs and his shot that was saved in Game 6, but it was hardly a huge amount that wanted him traded. Carter's value was discussed on here, as it made sense as a hockey trade to move him for a defenseman or a winger, but he was hardly run out of town by fans.

The media were the only ones who helped them get traded.

Furthermore, that was after losing in the second round the year after going to the finals. Giroux has been captain for two seasons and the team has all but been eliminated within the first month both years.

He's not completely to blame, but he deserves a large share of it. Holmgren and Snider also deserve a heaping pile of blame for giving him that contract after a mediocre year. That contract could be an anchor around this team's neck for eight years if something doesn't change quick.

I know this is probably not the best time to be posting here, but I'm not being disrespectful, so it's allowed.

To me, this is the time when Claude needs to step up and talk to media. When your team is in disarray like this, you can't be walking out. However, this is something that everyone has a point of view on.

Anyone have anything on what Giroux said to Snyder as he was leaving?

Talking did nothing before, why would it still work. Remember, our media is complete dog ****, save 1 or 2 people.

At least Raffl was beastly on the PK.

Call McGinn back up, and never play Mez again.

The discussion around here was pretty balanced. On FB and in other areas where the rest of the herd voices their opinions it was a different story. There were e-lynch mobs.

If Mez isn't waived by tomorrow, Homer should be fired. Seriously, Mez still being on an NHL team is grounds to fire GM.

The media in Philly is a bunch of clowns. I wouldn't talk to them if things were going well, let alone when things are going poorly and any quote will be spun to be used against me.
