Please respond on the strengths of Amac? I'll be waiting.. I really want to know.

Let me clarify I think both are not good but clearly Amac is putrid.

Yes AMac has zero strengths, you are right.

It's what you want to hear anyways, since you have your mind made up.

I can't think of any strengths Amac has at all, if you can think of any please respond with a reply. I can think of a ton of weaknesses but I'll wait for a response.

Carkner's strengths which are few are as follows. Much needed muscle and crunches people against the boards, clearing the crease, pinching in at times, and can throw down if need be.

Lets look at the stats, Amac 13 games played to Carkners 8

Points - Carkner 2 Amac 3

TOI- Carkner 12:12 Amac 26:53

+ - Carkner -2 Amac -7
And that's one more poster, I can ignore for good now.

Astounding.

I doubt any of these guys would even be in the top 6 on a stanley cup team. I was being patient, but after that ranger game, it is obvious, we have NO defensemen on this team. It was shocking how many shots missed the net in that game, and how many mistakes they made in the d zone. Those idiots have no idea how big that rivalry game is to us. They played like it was a beer league game, worse than I do. They suck, sadly

Macdonald#1
Hickey#2
Martinek#3
ness(moving up quickly) #4
Carkner#5
Sparky the dragon#6? Little wang from the draft podium#6? Eric Cairns( he is already on the payroll)#6?

We could play 5 dman and put both Nabby and Poulin in goal together and still look like a teenage deck hockey team out there. On a positive the phone in my house will start ringing soon with ticket deals from the interns .

I never thought I would long for the days of Jurcina,mottau,Staios,eaton,Reese,and gervais.

I know what I want for Christmas.

This is why a good GM, over pays the #2, #3 defensemen during free agency like a scuderi for example, and saves money elsewhere such as not paying guys who score 12-18 goals a year more then a million dollars a year. For example, we could of found a AHL forward or two instead of bailey or Clutterbuck. We know these two have low ceilings, and you cant win in the NHL without good defensemen. You can find 12 goal a year types all over the AHL.
