    In fairview, go to the sports experts, theres usually a very decent collection of stuff there. If you want jerseys, go downstairs to the hat/jersey store I think is called capsule sportive or something along those lines. Other than those places, not too much else with quality merch in the WI.

    Don't know what happened to the guy. He is destined for the Swiss league at this point to sort out his game and life. I think we care because he's a local boy, but he just doesn't seem to have that extra gear. I know a guy that went to school with him, and they said he was always a bit of an awkward, dopey kid (not my words). I hope he find satisfaction, but it won't be with us unfortunately.

    I agree, if MB said that, he would walk, meaning MB should be saying things like that, because it's always hard for guys who are getting older to accept that their role has changed or they aren't as skilled as they used to be. We all feel for the guy, and guys in that position, but I hope such a dialogue is happening before deals are signed. "I don't wanna see Maurice tonight, I want the Rocket!"

    Can we not fill holes with actual decent players? "I don't wanna see Maurice tonight, I want the Rocket!"

    The problem is, if you're small, you gotta at least be either supremely fast (Zuccharelo, others), supremely tenacious (Gallagher, Marchand) supremely skilled (St Louis, Kane) or surprisingly solid (Boullion 5 years ago, Weaver). Gionta is not in any of the above categories and Desharnais is decently skilled, but not enough to compensate for the serious deficiency in the others. Bouillon and Briere are too old now (falling out of the list I mentioned above) and must go too. Now, I don't expect Desharnais to go anywhere, and I can live with that, but Gionta has got to go. "Leadership by example", as he is said to provide, can be found in tons of other players, so he has absolutely no use now, and I will be very upset to see him back. Some of the first steps this team needs to make to compete with the western teams and the cup. "I don't wanna see Maurice tonight, I want the Rocket!"

    Amen, brother. "I don't wanna see Maurice tonight, I want the Rocket!"

    Agree on all points, don't sign guys who are past their expiry date as you said! "I don't wanna see Maurice tonight, I want the Rocket!"

    Ouch, pretty powerful stuff. They really have to change the name. It's not like the fans won't support the team anymore, or they won't buy the new merchandise. It sends a great message too. Come on USA... "I don't wanna see Maurice tonight, I want the Rocket!"

    I think he's gotta go. He proved he was no longer useful, smaller guys are only as useful as the numbers they put up, so when the numbers dry up, or the competitive juices dry up, they are no longer useful. St. Louis is the opposite of Gionta in the sense that he is still a threat out there. No time for loyalty, move on from Gionta MB! "I don't wanna see Maurice tonight, I want the Rocket!"

    Agree. Gionta has no game left, and Markov is a serious shadow of his former self. Move on from both of them. I wouldn't bring back Briere as well, also showed his age. As for Pleks to the wing, it's a good idea from the mentor perspective, as well as being a 2nd faceoff option, but Pleks is useful as a center, though not as a 1st or 2nd one. Pleks for 3rd line center plus PP/PK. Agree about the 30 goal scorer though, but who? "I don't wanna see Maurice tonight, I want the Rocket!"
