Hi Ronn. 2 rookie defenceman would scare me as a coach as well. It sure would have been nice to throw Nathan B out there more last season. He would have been a better choice then 2 of the ones who saw more action. CHeers.

Good morning all! Completely off topic but here's a very interesting article by ESPN on how the NFL/Ray Rice scandal went down. After reading this I'm more convinced then ever that there was something fishy about the leagues rush to destroy the Spygate Video tapes. Rice case: purposeful misdirection by team, scant investigation by NFL - ESPN http://m.espn.go.com/general/story?storyId=11551518&src=desktop&rand=ref~%7B%22ref%22%3A%22http%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com%22%7D

Hi Steve. I sure hope Emelin has a better season. He is, by far the best checker we have. Opponents are aware when he's on the ice. The team needs him. CHeers.

See? I told you this was going to be cool. CHeers, Cal. Where the heck is Grandma Weedwhacker?

Good morning rhino. I think that could have been Bergevin's best move as a GM. Weise reminds me of a younger version of Moen with a tad more offensive upside. To me he's a perfect 3rd liner. Grit with speed and capable of putting the puck in the net. Good call by both of you! CHeers.

Good morning all! Looking forward to the debate and the decisions that the team makes when they break camp. Especially with the D corps. Yesterday I read some folks backtracking a bit on Gilbert and to a lesser extent Weaver. I agree with their thinking. As I see it Beaulieu has already made the team unless he completely screws the pouch in camp. That leaves, PK Markov Emelin Beaulieu That's my top 4. I see a 4 way battle for the final 2 starting spots. Gilbert and Weaver certainly given their experience have the lead but neither of them should be a sure thing. Tinordi and Pateryn both have a legit spot to stick. In fact I think they both do. Barring injuries Frankie Boo doesn't sniff the ice this season. The season very well may start out with Tinordi, Weaver, Pateryn and Gilbert splitting time in the lineup. I'll add one more thing. Given the performance of Emelin last season he should also begin to feel threatened. His salary will probably convince the team to continue to roll him out there but his ice time should no longer be a given as well. If the final 4 out perform him then they should get the ice. That said, I suspect we'll see a bounce back season for Emelin. Just my two cents and its worth, well, two cents. CHeers all.

Scary. Honest confession. I use to like MaGuire. In fact I said once that he'd be an OK candidate for our GM position. As I've said before, I'm more charming then smart but holy crap was I ever wrong on that. I've since repented and ridicule him at every opportunity. As they use to tell me at work all the time, "You're not as dumb as you look."
