Holmgren said acquiring players that were captains was coincidence, nothing more. Yes, the Flyers are now a team with a ton of leaders. But that was already being discussed long before Jason Smith was brought in.

You guys didn't trade for a defensive defenseman on the downside of his career (can't make an outlet pass to save his life) for the odd bone-crushing hit on Crosby or Malkin.

Gagne, Kapanen and Hatcher wore A's last year. Gagne and Kapanen will undoubtedly get at least those letters back, the only thing left to decide is who is captain, and it's not Jason Smith.

I'll take your bet though.

Kapanen didn't play.

lets wait until regular season game 1 with a healthy lineup before naming winners. last i checked, it was a preseason game.

Briere and Richards were also wearing A's.

You're like my friend who thinks I lost a bet that Ryan Parent would play in the NHL this season because he didn't play last night. It's pre-season. There's PM's for a reason, and if you can't understand why I was so pissed off on July 2nd, then you shouldn't even be speaking to me.

I'll admit I was wrong in anger at a stupid trade when it actually occurs, until then, piss off.

Dravid, shouldn't you at least buy him dinner before discussing bearing his child?

Apparently it's gotten around that I'm easy. I can't say they're wrong.
