In the same realm where Cam MacIntyre is a 1st line NHLer this season.

Lol, while I'll admit that I saw your post while I was writing, believe me it was not the primary reason I said that. I just felt like being flippant and a bit of a ball buster.

I'm sorry, who? Such a player does not exist. There certainly has been no photographic evidence.

Demers is very well liked. Maybe not by the top defenseman or one of the top forwards but other than that he's pretty well liked. Where are you getting your information from?

Demers is a goofball, how can you not like him?

You're forgetting who the captain is.

Obviously Marleau has a secret hatred for Demers.

I think Demers is liked. Looks like Couture likes him, and that's all that matters. He went to the 'Kitchen Nightmares' taping too, so there's at least a group of guys that likes having him around.

The only negative things I ever remember about Demers are Nabby slashing him and him getting into something with Vlasic that one time (don't remember any details).

to whoever posted that team, who is going to be the physical player that actually drops the gloves? that team would get pushed around more than the Sharks do this year and probably be the weakest team in the league.

Dropping the gloves is overrated. The Sharks would still have McGinn, Winchester, Desjardins, and maybe even Burns to fight if really needed. It's no worse than what teams like Vancouver, Detroit, and Chicago are icing.

No big deal there. French-Canadians fight all the time in this league.

It was when Vlasic was playing ****tily at the beginning of last season and Demers reportedly called him out in the locker room.

Wait. So do you tell a player he's just been traded at 36,000 feet? Seems risky and just plain wrong. Yet everyone's online up there.
Hm ?

Would love to fleece the Habs. Is Clowe + Demers + Nieto + 2 firsts fair trade for AK + Max Pac? AK could be had cheaply, but it's Max Pac that the Habs would demand a lot for.

I don't mean like he's being ostracized at parties. I mean that the coaching staff doesn't seem that high on him.

He was benched during the playoffs last year, even though he had something one would typically play through. He was on the IR for a really long time this year and only came off when everyone else went down with injury...then last year, where he didn't get the playing time he deserved, IMO. Throw in the spat he had with Vlasic, and I imagine he is the odd-man-out. Compared to Braun; this year he's been given a lot more responsibility.

The final thing that really sealed it for me, was the fact that DW typically gives some of these high-potential prospects good contracts. Michalek, Carle, Mitchell, etc. all got very nice $ figures. Demers actually got a reasonable contract...

So they'll just push Clowe off the emergency exit?

Ah hail naw. Two firsts + top-6 prospect + potential top-4 d-man + current top-6 forward for a younger top-6 forward and a UFA?

It isn't the ability to fight. It is having players who have the mentality that they could fight. That kind of mentality is good.
