Do we need another older Dman ?
Its not gonna happen.
since when has eklund become a reliable source?
(i apologize if this has been asked before)
Eklund has been an allowable source on HF for a long time now.
He creates traffic for this board. Therefore he is good for HFBoards' owners.
Doesn't quite answer the question, but i get where you're coming from.........towing the party line and all.
Not the 1st source I'd look to for any form of Habs news
Ouch, looks like your Markov bashing backfired tonight, lets try for another day and I'll try 'paying attention' to all his flaws in the meantime.
Good to know.... I guess
So we made a trade with Dallas and it didn't involve Robidas. Good thing Eck knows what's going on between these two teams.
Eklund was right about negotiations with Dallas, but he must have made a blind guess on the target.
this is true...and has given me a slight bit of faith in eklund
His positioning has little to do with markov. Emelin is not the greatest skater to begin with. Sometimes, those big hit opportunities come at the expense of being in good position.
But my bigger complaint against emelin is his lack of composure with the puck. He tends to get all twisted up if the puck ends up around his feet, and he is prone to the odd careless turnover.
The lack of mobility as a whole is a concern on that pairing, which is even more incentive to play positionally sound.
I don't believe it will happen. I don't want him either (he isn't bad, just not what we need, imo). BUT... Robidas costs less and will be UFA at the end of the season, compared to Kaberle. We aren't using Kaberle in the least bit and we don't seem to be going to anytime soon. We could see a similar deal as Cole/Ryder as we've seen today. Would be good for us, financially.
Though I think Robidas only appeared in the talks while they were negotiating for what resulted in Cole/Ryder.
