I’ve read a few articles that have been posted lately and I’ve read a few of the comments and it sort of occured to me that some fans love Gainey and others blindly hate him. Me, I love Gainey but you know what, was last year his fault? Was the 2005-06 season his fault? Let’s look at it carefully.
Off-season before and After the Lockout
At one time I was a die hard Oilers fan and seeing them go to game seven against Carolina was simply amazing. They came out of nowhere and overcame the odds and had one hell of a playoff run. It was all downhill from there.. many key players bolted out of Edmonton. It all started with Chris Pronger’s trade demand, soon Tarnstrom, Spacek, Peca and Samsonov followed suit. Kevin Lowe didnt do anything to replace those lost players and went into the following season with some big holes on defence. To top it all off K-Lowe traded Ryan Smyth at the trade deadline (that was my breaking point with this team) for alot less than he could have got.
I hope everyone who is SUPPOSEDLY a HABS fan will read and truly listen to what I’m going to say! Bob Gainey is exactly what Montreal needed and NEEDS! He is doing everything that a GM should be doing…
According to Sportsnet.ca and the Globe and Mail, Scott Bowman has been offered the post of team President…..
First of all great drawing/painting/artwork. The person who created the banner should be recognized for their great work.
Hey Hockey Fans Out There:
I’m going to say roughly 90% of the hockey fans out there who visit this site are either Montreal Canadian Fans or Toronto Maple Leaf Fans, so I’m here to debate which team will be better during the 2007/2008 Season.
I will get into last seasons statistics for each team and new players that each team got during free agency/trades or players that they have lost in the off season.
I’d just like to say thanks Juicelan for giving me this idea and that it was Juiceman’s idea first.
The Canucks right now have no offense. So, with that in mind I’m going to rate each of our guaranteed roster players up to this point. From this point on please do not read it if you are just going to point out all the flaws I may have made.
So fan’s I just thought I’d ask the one question that has been a burning in my mind for the last 3 weeks: do we bring the Pylon Anson Carter back and hope he can ignite again. Was he liked in the dressing room? Is he a team player? He seemed a bit money hungry but has he humbled. Would the Sedins be better with him back? How much? Please discuss.
Brian McCabe is often critisized for many things. Giveaways, a huge contract, poor defensive play, but his value to a hockey team is greatly underapreciated.
Okay well, to start this off I am new on this site so please don’t bash me too hard. Also from this point on it will be all about the Canucks so if you don’t like them or the topic of the article don’t bother reading then flaming. Thanks!
Sounds like its almost official..La Presse is reporting that Brisebois is on the verge of accepting the Canadiens offer…so get ready Patrice fans.
With all of their RFA’s re-signed, we now get a clearer picture of the Senators of next season:
A good team, but still noticeably weaker then the one that was runner-up for the Stanley Cup.
So, will they rest on their laurels? Or does Mr Murray have something up his sleeve?
I have some ideas.
Note: All this is pure speculation and/or opinion on my part. Any opinions expressed are purely my own personal ones. So don’t bother reading if your going to enter with a close mind. All constructive comments are welcome.
Oilers playoff bound??!!: a comprehensive analysis I hear quite a few of the Oilers bashers saying that the Oilers will likely be one of five worst teams in the league. This may come true if the Oilers are as unlucky and disadvantaged as they were last season. They had the most things that could go wrong going south. They had injuries, fatigue, wrong trade and weak D on their plate. Because I know the Oiler had to burden the hindering elements last season, I have a very different opinion than most of you. I am predicting that the Oilers will be a playoff team in the upcoming season. I am not saying just because they get Penner. And post your replies. I am very interested in reading articulate and reasonable arguments.
