Please, for the love of god, stop this fantasy drivel. It's more than a little embarrassing.

What a sanctimonious sack of crap you are. What are you doing to stop the psychopaths? What are you doing to reverse world hunger? What are you doing to correct world debt? What are you doing to tend the sick?

For all the talk of a plethora of centers and the availability and disposal of Pleks, why is no-one even entertaining the thought of drafting Forsberg? From what I can see he does it all, is most likely NHL ready, is big, fits with this teams new identity (if I think I understand it...) and, well, is not Russian. I can't think of a lazy Swede in the NHL.

The league REALLY needs Dr Recchi for that.

I'm not suggesting that we remove fighting - half the fun of watching this game is in sharing with the one-ice tension knowing that it will get close to the line. And I challenge anyone who thinks otherwise. What needs to happen is a mechanism to identify the line between what is fair and what goes too far and to eliminate THAT, instantly and supplementarily. It's also very empowering for the refs on the ice and allows them to make a very clear and distict call in most situations. No grey.

To me, the above suspensions once again cry out for the removal fo the instigator rule. I have been a big fan of the Flyers/Pens series. There has been high skill, high intensity and lots of scoring. There's been some foul play and some good play and, with the exception of Asham's cross check on Schenn some close-to-the-edge play. This is still a physical game played by young men who's testosterone levels are sky high and no-one likes to lose. How many times have Habs fans cheered in recent years as Begin, Pleks, Gionta and even Max have driven Boston crazy by making them look foolish and then cried foul when they lose their minds and do something stupid. Newsflash: That's exactly what we hoped they would do. Not to injure - but to do something daft and unfocused. I'm not condoning the actions of Torres (repeat, repeat offender) or Asham or the single incident guys - but there is always a context. Eliminate the instigator rule and let them account for their actions on the ice, let supplementary discipline take it's course for the action (not the events) and let ex-referees manage the job of discipline. Get Kerry Fraser to look at it objectively, where he has no old-boy ties...

We HAVE Weber!!

I think I'd be OK with that, difference being that I think Hartley has the experience and savvy to make the right decisions at the right times and to apply carrot or stick appropriately.

I read a couple of posts ago that Bob Hartley is a potential candidate for the coaching job next season. It seems to have been met with a bunch of negativity, but I'm not sure why. He has a reputation as a no-nonsense, north-south, hit-em-hard, blue collar kind of guy, which is exactly the identity this team is beginning to take... He is a Cup winner himself having won with Colorado in 2001... I think he'd fit well. St Patrick? Not so much. Question - where does Cunneyworth fit, anywhere, next season?

I don't think Bourque is without "try". And if he is lacking, I don't blame him a 10th as much as I do Gomez
