Does Pitsburgh have cap space?
Good for him he didnt have a great experience here but went thru some personal problems so glad hes finding success and hopefully enjoying even if he lives in a disastrous dictatorship now
could say the same about schneider
I'm really enjoying having Gilman on Vancouver sportstalk on a regular basis. His rundown on the Schneider/Horvat trade yesterday was really cool to listen to.
Apparently despite the timing of the announcement, the actual trade call was made the night before, so Vancouver had to just cross their fingers that Horvat would still be on the board. If Bo had been picked, Gilman said their scouts really wanted Wennberg, who went to CBJ at 14.
Yeah I caught that. Didn't know Gilman would be on regularly though.
Devastating really (for me anyways) hearing how the whole Luongo/Heritage game scandal went down. Luongo was so excited for it; flew in family from Florida and Montreal, had some wicked new pads made for the game..... it was going to be one of the highlights of his career. Apparently ownership didn't like the decision either and management even tried to convince Torts to change his mind. So I guess owners don't have quite as much power as some of us conspiracy theorists believe they do.
Also interesting that a deal was in place with Milbury to trade Roberto for Derek Morris but was nixed at the last second.
well, torts didn't coach the team a second season, did he?
No. but he knew he was going to get paid either way.
So much for karma......dude wins the Jack Adams the following season. Meh, at least we got a draft pick compensation out of the deal...
Dont understand why the franchise didn't hold his hands against the fire & stipulate that Lu needs to play that game or Torts is gone that night. Guy was here for less than 82 games & was given the power to make a franchise altering move.
The last one ever.
We're number one!
congrats to the guy
Springfield sucks this year. Guess they're about to get even suckier!
Alex Grenier is #2 in scoring on that team, for those interested.
Alex Friesen somehow leads the Allsvenskan in scoring. Has 10 more points than the next guy on his team.
You don't understand why Torts, the head coach who was just signed to a 6 year contract over that previous summer, was given the power to make lineup decisions?
