Well, I think it is safe to say that none of us ever thought the negotiations would go like this. Based on what we do know, which is that he seemed like a guy with exceptional character traits. Unlike guys like Evander Kane, Subban, ect., we've never heard one negative thing about him before this. You're right, I've never met him, but I would be willing to bet that last year, no one would've predicted him to be a holdout.

One does not simply walk into Mordor.

On another note... Subban is becoming a headache in Montréal... rights for rights?
You know that he was talking about the possibility of being traded at the deadline and being ready for it because they would want to play in the next game. This kind of comment comes from players of every team at trade deadline.

I don't think that's the case, or at least shouldn't be the case, because if trying to get traded is really his goal he should have just asked to be traded.

Apparently Edlers contract is for 5/year. I'd like to see O'Reilly's agent justify him being worth more than a top pairing, two-way defender.

Is Edler the best locker room guy in the last 25 years? Thought not.

Anyone viewing ROR's father's tweets the past few hours? I saw someone tweeted Dater that he is going off in a really negative manner.

Exaggeration?

He's a life coach. He's been posting banalities before this started and will continue to do so after this has ended.

And O'Reilly is? The best locker room guy in the last 25 years signed for two years in russia and is using it to demand more money than almost everyone else on the roster based on one good season?

Yeah, fantastic locker room guy that is. He's screwing over his team and teammates because of greed. I doubt anyone accuses him of being a good locker room guy after this.

Doesn't he always tweet stuff like that? I followed him on twitter before but then I had to stop because of all the nonsense he tweets.

Half of what he says makes no sense, the other half appears directed towards the contract situation... ruining any credibility I attributed him in the past. A life coach doesn't advocate putting oneself before their team.

I agree with those saying it's nothing much out of the ordinary. To those who might have never read his tweets before, and just started checking it out, it might appear as if he is making some commentary on the current situation. But I've kept an eye on @coachbri1's tweets off and on for a year or two, and it looks like the same kind of stuff he has posted for a long long time. Let's just say he's not your typical individual, nor your typical tweeter.

By far the most "out of the ordinary" tweet he's made was how he couldn't wait to go to Russia to see his boy play.

When was the last time Greg Sherman said anything to the media that wasn't one of his "we are pleased to add x to our team" press releases?

Must be nice to work in a market where you don't have to care about the media.

No actually it wasn't. I made a mistake and said it was Porter when it was Quincey, but if you read my next comment where I post the quote it clearly isnt'.

He was on NHL tonight last season after the trade deadline if I'm not mistaken.

Don't be silly. Just stop cheering for Avs and start cheering for Magnitogorsk.
