  3. NemiNA says:

    DAMNIT! YA HAD TO DO IT DIDN’T YA! I WANTED TO BE THE ONE THAT SAID IT! DAMN YOU TITANS!! DAMN YOU TO HELL!! Well not hell. But yeah, next time, I’ve got dibs!

  4. titans says:

    Slappy the Leaf Bashing will never end!

  5. titans says:

    Sorry it was just too easy to pass up!

  6. Flyer_Fan says:

    Am I the only one who is starting to think that the “Please don’t Leaf Bash” whine, is like an African American playing the race card when it doesn’t really apply?

  7. greatlife15 says:

    Please dont Leaf Bash whine would apply for ANY respectable organization. hey we got money to throw around, then do it. But, jus irrelavant almost retarded replies are just….. incomprehensible at the moment? Ya thats it. Lol and the race card, can be played anywhere a group is a minority. Don’t white people throw around their weight in the Middle East? Hail The White Man! Not..

  8. Flyer_Fan says:

    I don’t hate anyone because of “color” at least.

    It’s just a true statement.

    Some of my “black buds” would even agree with me!

    Even Chris Rock will tell ya.

  9. GlenSather says:

    Are the Rangers gonna even try to sign a free agent that has talent. Martin Straka and Martin Rucinsky and Marik Malik?????????????????????????? what is this the washed up Chez junior team? How about trying to sign someone who has a little talent like Niedermayer or Mondano, Paul Kariya, Jason Allison ,Dan McGillis, Miroslav Satan and last but not least Peter Forsberg. They cleared Bobby Holik so the rangers could sign at least one big name…..well were waiting here. Look at the second line of the Rangers oh wait it doesn’t exist because there is no second line. Oh yeah the Rangers are waiting for next year when Jerome Iginla is available whhoops here resigned with calgary. Heads should roll if the Rangers don’t end up with at least one or two of the remanining free agents. Save the , well the rangers are trying to build replys. As a Ranger fan for 20 years I know that the Rangers have maybe one or two prospects that are ready to even skate in the NHL the rest are either too young or are marginal prospects at best. Get cracking Glen.

  10. greatlife15 says:

    lol chris rock is da man, u gotta love him no matter his colour. Another one is Russell Peters 🙂

  11. Lint07 says:

    Congrats to HTR for the 10,000th member!

  12. nelsog says:

    I really have to hand it to the management out there in San Jose. They need nobody (forget about Ricci) an, as expected, have done nothing so far. This is a team the rest of the NHL must deal with for years to come. Resign Primeau and/ or some other grind it out guys and this team is set to take the Western Conference. Forget about other big names going out west-this is a team, not a pick and plug.

    The Bay Area should feel blessed to have this team there. With athletes who think only about themselves or their bogus legacies and not their team in the area (you know who i’m talking about and Kerry Collins is the only exception) this is nothing short of a miracle.

    I am waiting in great anticipation to listen to another year of Sharks hockey on Just don’t beat the Habs.
