I see MPS working well with Gagner and Yakupov.His size and speed compliment those two and he is defensively capable of useing his speed to back up Yaks offensive thrusts and Sams net presence and inside work.Yak needs to shoot the puck and so does Sam,someone needs to be the disher and the fisher,maybe Magnus will learn to crash the net for rebounds he has already improved at taking the d-man wide and hard.

Horcs has taken his shots already,I am giving the poor guy a mulligan,we have already paid the green fees.Great things ahead as the men continue to file in.
Sure hope MPS plays better than he did last night for OKC in his swan song before TC.

The idea isn't that bad, but there's no way Redden would ever re-sign with the Rangers, and no way they'd want to re-sign him seeing as this year it looks like his cap hit is on the books and they don't even want him on the ice.

I know this is the "Hate on Horcoff" parade, but are we conveniently ignoring the fact that Horcoff has been well reported in doing the same? He had Hall & Ebs over for per-game meals nearly every home game in their rookie years...

Carry on.

Looks like Oilers will open in Vancouver then return home for a pair of games.

If I'm not mistaken they were sitting in one of the main concourse suites.

We're secretly hoping management told him not to report, because his name is involved in some kind of trade rumor.


IN all honesty though, he's likely networking in Phoenix and Detroit, because he knows he's bought out this summer, and will likely be looking for new employment.


Some of the ownership bashing he did I don't think Katz appreciated. Considering how well he's been treated by this organization.

Unlikely.

Supposedly Horcoff and Katz are good friends.

I bet he shows up tomorrow for physicals with no dramatics and no rumours.

I dont remember the year, but there was a time when Jason Smith was out for an extended period of time and they did give Smyth the C for quite awhile that season. Better than nothing i guess

He's holding out for more money.

His contract isn't the biggest on the team anymore so it's... no-show until more-dough.
