This right here, actually scares me. With Chucky`s impending new contract, the inevitable huge raises Patches and Price are going to get in a few years and Pk`s already massive contract, I think our window might be smaller than many people believe it is.

How about you maybe try reading his post properly before jumping all over him first? The_truth mentioned the pro scouting was less than stellar during the Gainey regime (I.E Gomez). The players you mentioned, and the draft in general are handled by the Amateur scouting department. So, essentially your argument is moot.

Chucky`s points have been steadily trending upwards every year while Yak`s have been going downwards.

I really love seeing the CH pop up 3 times on this page. http://www.nhl.com/ice/statshome.htm?navid=nav-sts-main#

It's going to be a slow day here today. Here's a video with a few stars showing off some crazy skills. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PAVM2H9zV7M It really makes me wonder why Subban isn't tried on the shootout more often.

Resigning Markov and Subban, as well as assembling the supporting cast on the team to surround Price, Paccioretti, and Galchenyuk, were all Bergervin's moves.

Emelin has been absolutely terrible defensively this season, while Beaulieu has been emerging as a true top 4. Sure hits are nice, but the defenseman's first priority is keeping the puck out of the net, something which Emelin has struggled to do this season. Also, you assessment that Beaulieu can`t be all physical, is false. He isn`t a push over, nor is he a smurf. Just because he is an offensive defenseman doesn't automatically mean he is the next Diaz. Plus he completely demolished his opponents in the two fights he had earlier this year. As far as Tinordi goes, as much as I would like him to steal a spot on the big club from one of the borderline nhlers we have on our bottom pairing (not at the expense of Beaulieu), he is now injured for an undetermined amount of time.

If you think that`s a joke, you should go check out the power ranking on NHL.com. Those clowns had us at 13th if memory serves me.

My Family`s solution to this was to implement a $50 secret Santa amongst the adult members. No suggestion list and no gift cards are allowed. The 50$ limit means that it`s not such a big purchase that you have to worry about screwing it up, yet you still need to think carefully about what you buy. This way everyone still opens a present, everyone is legitimately surprised at what they get, and best of all nobody has to break the bank. We still cant help spoiling the little ones rotten though.
