So, when's the next Saw movie coming out?" and Oren just stared at him and gave him this dirty look because he thought Michael was being sarcastic. Michael was like "Seriously, Im a big fan. I own all of them." Oren continued to hesitate but gave a quick answer, glanced at his watch, and turned to walk away. Michael was still calling after him "Thanks! Seriously, big fan!" Then he looked at me and was like "I dont think he took me seriously" and I just burst out laughing. It was great.

Its not that bad if he goes. Def changes the direction of the team, though, and will make a LOT of people hate Koules.

I will be ok as long as there is a great return. Especially if NYI take Hedman and we end up with Tavares (which I really think they will NOT do)

I pray to god we get Hedman.

Scorers come along often. Giant, speedy, offensive defensemen do not. You HAVE to pick Hedman 100/100 times if hes available.

Yea, but they are not really in a position of strength in this case.

It'll be a LOT of youth. If things really do go the way they're talking Koules wants, we'll be like Chicago.

Theres just absolutely no ****ing reason to trade Vinny. Oren Koules you're a ****ing idiot if you allow Vinny to be traded. And I will go to Tampa and tell you that to your face.

There will be about a million people ahead of you in line to do it first.

Forget the thread title... I think Koules is headed for a nasty divorce with the fans.

I'll help you.




If they trade Vinny, I will still support the team, but from my tv, I won't spend a penny on them.

He'll stick around long enough to **** it all up [trade Vinny] and then it'll be on to new ownership. No one would be able to tolerate all the hate directed at them as whoever trades Vinny will receive.

I'm not a very good teammate.

Just a rosy news day in Lightning land. I was bummed to read Ramo was going elsewhere. Now I'm terrified of what Koules running the team is going to mean for the future of this team. I'm not so sure Vinny will be the only one moved if OK really wants payroll in the low 40's. *sigh*

Thank you. I knew I could count on you!


I feel the same. The only time I'll buy a ticket is when Vinny comes to town... and you'd better believe I'll be wearing a Lecavalier jersey.

The blackberry dude has been trying to sidestep NHL rules to get a franchise and move them which other sports leagues were also widely against which is why they supported the NHL. Our guys are just incompetent, but they follow the rules.

What's sad is that almost the best thing that could happen is the owners walk away now.

No doubt, I certainly would hope so, you guys are several hours closer to him than I am...

I'd rather have pretty much anyone else owning this team right now. Basillie, Charles Wang, Jay Feaster, Santa Claus...hell, even Radim Vrbata.

I'm okay with youth, I'm not okay with Higgins, Halak and a conditional 1st.

According to some guy over at some other website(lol) Its Koules who wants to keep Vinny, and not Barrie.

I don't know what to believe at this point.

I was surprised to see that it's Barrie who wanted to keep Lecavalier, if you would have asked me before I would have thought it was the opposite.
