He's rancid.

(And I generally have a positive out-look on players.)
Who would win in a fight? Mason Raymond or Cam Barker?

Does anyone know how Vandermeer's fared this year? Would he be a viable option if we needed to put someone in? He has the kind if experience we could use.

With Schroeder up... Any chance we see him in game 1? I guess not if the practice lines mean anything.

Chances are he won't be in for Round 1.

He's called up. But I believe he's injured.

Okay, I think we can agree he's a 'plug' - he gets 'plugged' in to fill a hole here or there, in whatever league he's in. ECHL?

We laugh at these guys so-called lack of toughness, but they are professional athletes, and if given opportunity (and reason) could easily kick our *****. They play in the NHL. To get to that level of hockey takes toughness.

He, along with Lack, is injured. Gilman pretty much said that he wont be used in the 1st round, but could be used later in the playoffs.

Lindros v. Stojko anyone? Lindros (edit!!) got his ass handed to him by a figure skater outside a bar. Being an athlete of that calibre period, regardless of the sport, gets you toughness points.

I'm not surprised. Stojko, on top of being a world class athlete himself, was very much into martial arts. At one point he incorporated TKD moves into his skating routine, but the judges were less than impressed.

Sorry, corrected. Duh. Still...Lindros isn't exactly a push over (or wasn't at that point).

Move along people, nothing to see here.

Would be more effective than Ebbett at this point.

I think Mallet, on the forth, just bang bodies and bring energy.
