Say what you want but I'm EXTREMELY positive on Postma. Yes his defense is probably not up there yet but defence can be learned, his offensive instincts are impressive. Esp on a team like ours that depends so heavily on the D to generate offense. If he can improve his defensive play (something that I'm sure Huddy is working on) he can be a solid point producer at the NHL level.

Nah you don't want that kind of heat. It's almost as bad the cold...I hate the extremes here, I want to go somewhere less volatile, I can't take the cold or the heat ...

Here if it dips under 40 degrees (Fahrenheit) people have big coats on lol.

The thought of outdoor rinks seems really cool. I want to learn to skate so I can teach my nephew. My husband plays pick up hockey and will show him, but I want to get out there, too.

Oh, we get the humidity, you don't have anything to worry about.

I know. Summer definately helps counter the winter cold. All in all I do love it.

Ugh, hate the extreme heat. It got over 100 degrees several times this summer. I need somewhere that is a constant like 70 degrees most of the year, then gets a bit warmer to swim.

Yeah, that's probably true. A little less hot, or just not humid, would be awesome though.

I went to Nashville, Atlanta and Orlando last year and fell in love. Love the long road trips to new places. Want to visit the Gulf coast soon, but it will have to wait, I'm afraid. Driving down to Miami for a cruise in May. Hoping to see a Jets playoff game down there *crosses fingers

I hate the heat in the summer, and I hate the (mild) cold in the winter.

Obviously I need a summer home in northern Manitoba

For a bottom pairing guy I think he's already on par. The offensive side just adds to that.

Could still use some weight though.

You can dress for the cold. Well, I can. I can handle the cold no problem. The heat? no way. I hate anything over +20. I heat up way to easy.

I easily can sleep with a window open in the winter time.

Move out west like I did

You'd think that the Nuck fans would annoy but actually they are just fun to troll... You should have seen my brother (who's fave team before Jets return was the Kings) when Stoll scored to end the Nucks ahhahah

I always say I can put on enough to get warm, you can't take off enough to get cool.

And yet another jab at Buff's "shape."

Refs told Wheeler to stop diving. Is it just me or does Wheeler have bad balance in general?

When I was in ATL in May last year it was stifling. Hot and humid... gross.

Still loved it
