    I really loved having Ruutu here. I was really bummed when he didn't resign with us. Cooke was a nice replacement though. At that point in time, we really needed a **** stirrer.

    That said, I really like Elmer. I wanted him to be a big part of the team.

    Dumoulin now is what I thought Despres would be. A no-nonsense guy to cover for Letang.

    Oh come on!


    Depres only makes you depres-sed.

    Ruutu rings true!

    What in the hell did Depres ever do but fail to live up to expectations and get us The Revered back?

    At least Jarkko filled his role of bat**** crazy on skates well!

    I don’t even remember Ruutu. I voted for Despres in the non runoff thread anyway. I turned red when I found out he was traded. My coworker asked me what was wrong :laugh:

    I was in an excavator for the rest of the day so it was good therapy

    I Desapprove of the nomination. While the trade was bad, Despres did hurt the Pens by way of always being called for penalties a vet (Like Lovejoy) wouldn't be called for. Things turned out better for Despres going to Anaheim, he was outta favor here with the front office and the refs.

    It was a shame on the concussion, though. Don't wish that on anyone.

    You find me three videos of Depres better than the three Ruutu ones I spent twenty seven seconds finding.

    They are automatically better because they have Despres in them.
