    Five bucks says Sergei didn't know Torts is a big baby man in the sauna and couldn't take his birch switch like a real Slav.

    I love it when certain teams have these player/coaches problems :)

    Chris Nichols Twitter has a few article summaries from BMac on the air.

    • Flyers ownership don’t want a rebuild.
    • Nash won’t play again this season
    • Carolina want to move a D man (duh ;))
    • Talks about the upcoming Josi re signing and Polie’s contract philosophies.

    Josi should be interesting. Don’t see how they pull no NTC with them.

    As a West Slav, we deny all existence of the гопники.

    If it becomes apparent that you have no hope of signing Bob or Panarin, you gotta trade those guys. You can't let your best goalie and best forward go, for nothing. That's just horrible asset management.

    If you keep them, knowing they are goners, you better as heck win the Stanley Cup, because that's that the only thing that will make letting them walk, worthwhile.

    Or at the very least, a playoff round. And Bob ain't helpin' with that one.

    I think for the BJs, even making a playoff run would be worth it for them, even if it means losing them for nothing. They've been knocking on the door for years now but can't win a single round, I'd imagine they want to get that off their back.

    Problem is they're stuck in a bracket with us and the Caps. I dunno, it's a tough call.

    The Bob situation today makes me think CBJ might move him if they think Korposalo is ready...no way as long as they’re in the PO race that they move Panarin, even at the risk of losing him for nothing...but Bob has been kind of meh in the POs...could see him being traded shortly

    Yeah, I guess, but the problem is, if they win a round, with contributions from Bob and Panarin, and they walk, what good does that do you?? You take a big step backward next year, and that playoff win in your back pocket, is probably soon forgotten about.


    But having said that, I don't know their financial situation, but I'm sure profit wise, a couple playoff rounds played would be huge. So yeah, I guess I shouldn't discount that aspect of it.

    Hmm, Re : CBJ...

    How far is Torts into his average shelf life with a given team, right now?

    I don't know. Nate didn't find it very amusing when Sid tried to trade his most valuable hockey card.

    LOL Bob. Was he picking up hookers or did he just beat up a cab driver?

    It'll be a shame when he moves on and we can no longer count on him for the CBJ playoff meltdowns.

    Columbus is such a trash heap. Blow a 3-1 lead with 4 minutes left.

    Yep, it really sucks...we’re going to have to actually do it on our own and beat ANA, even though they dominated us at home

    700 goals is ridiculous. I know that didn't happen tonight, but it will one day.
