But im looking fwd to the "Youth Movement" if they actually stick with it, hopefully even in bad times (which there will be plenty) they just stick to their guns.

I'll be honest, I'm just praying for a healthy Johnson and Varlamov. That's the spine of the team. Last year we were playing with a broken spine

Just playing But seriously, I do agree with that statement. Hell, my 2015 J7 is better than the i7 I was playing with for a while.

And on topic, loving the thread Sea Eagles.

I'm pretty sure it single-handedly made Staz sign elsewhere.

Luckily, ROR couldn't even be baited into this - he might've considered it was for some Lord Huron or Phosphorescent, but he sure as hell ain't wasting his time on a fake sweaty Imagine Dragons mashup.

Okay, I'm done here; I'll just go back to ranting about our crappy practice rink.

Eh, I'd rather have a marketing department that tries and fails than a marketing department that doesn't try at all. For a while there Matt Duchene's Twitter feed was about the only thing promoting the team. This, if you recall, was during everyone's favorite "It's All About the A" Era. They cranked up the PR after Roy came in, some good, some bad. I'll leave it up to you if you think the Ice Girls are a good idea or not.

As for the title of this thread...I'll get excited over the season the minute they sign Nikita Zadorov, until then I'm trying to focus on the league stirrings as a whole, and may just continue down that path anyway. Life's too short to just follow one hockey team, especially one as ineptly run as this.

Loved Landy when he fought Weber. I hope we (avs) come out with some fire like this year and sets the tone.

Absolutely - we need some Downie spit in our team. I kind of hoped (even though he'd older) we got Hartnell to stiffen our forwards.

My favorite Steve Downie memory will always be that kicking the helmet penalty he took against the Rangers back in 2012. It was a stupid thing to do at a stupid point in the game but damn it, it made me laugh so hard. I absolutely loved it!!

Really wish I could find a video of it.

Couldn't find it but found this article from 2007 instead (worth reading):

Quote:
DOWNIE LOSES IT AGAIN?.The Storm knocked off the Kitchener Rangers for the fifth time in seven tries Saturday night. Thomas McCollum had the shutout and Drew Doughty added two goals and an assist in their 5-0 win. The game was marred however when Steve Downie, the talented but temper-challenged forward of the Rangers, jumped Guelph winger Mike McLean for no reason (other than frustration) with Guelph leading 4-0. He pounded away at the shocked McLean before linesmen could get in and drag Downie away. He then preceded to drop-kick his helmet and, after leaving the ice, throw out a tray of water bottles that just missed a linesman. Downie was given two minutes for instigating, five for fighting, a ten minute misconduct, a game misconduct and a gross misconduct. A lengthy suspension will no doubt follow.

Yeah, god forbid they tried to have fun and not take themselves too seriously for 5 seconds. I smile when I hear that song and I'd like to forget the miracle year for the most part.

Love the thread! I could use a bit of excitement juice, not so much from expecting a crappy season but just to wake me up from what felt like the longest summer ever.

Can we get Patty Roy to come back for one game to do something stupid and light a fire under the team and fans?
