When we left off here...
Continue on continuing on.
Brad May on the Vegas broadcast just savaged CBJ management on their handling of Bob.
Which of Torts' comments from last spring is Lebrun referring to?
What did he say?
I caught the tail end of it.
He was saying that the matter should have remained internal. He said it was like broadcasting to the neighbors the problems that you might have with a family member. He said that the CBJ have one of the best goalies in the world and that this was no way to handle him.
Whoever his broadcast partner in the booth was looked a bit stunned and commented on May's intensity on the issue.
so, what’s everyone’s prediction about Bob? what do you think will happen with his future? traded? if so when?
Thanks, if that game replay will be with Vegas feed i will try to catch it.
also..to echo your thoughts that Torts has nothing to do with it, sounds like you were right, considering the comments JK made and his willingness to made everything public, it's JKvsBob clash.
Kevin Weekes had reported just a few weeks ago that the situation between management and Bob had "deteriorated and become untenable" just a few weeks ago. Because he shared the same agent as Bob, most of the FOs blind defenders dismissed it.
To have 2 star players run out of town on a rope because of legitimate contract disputes within a few years should be unacceptable. Makes one wonder whether Davidson and Kekalainen are fit to run an NHL franchise.
Who is the other player that was "run out of town"?
Again. Enough of the Russians. They always pull the "im going to the KHL" if they dont get their way. Columbus has been nothing but great to Bob. He has given us some awesome regular seasons and then laid a turd in the playoffs. He wants paid. I get it. But be professional and play for the contract you signed. This isnt the NFL.
Here's the deal since Bob is suspended he has virtually no trade value (or as some has speculated only way for us to deal him is for another goalie with an expiring contract that minimizes cap impact to team taking on Bob).
Essentially if rumor are true and situation with Bob was getting worse as season wore on, then we have successfully waited until he has no value.
Hopefully at some point the CBJ can self-examine themselves and ask why so many things go bad for them. I agree with many on here that making this stuff public doesn't help. Maybe pacifies some fans who want them to "do something" but overall hasn't made them a better team.
As much as I can be critical towards some players from my country of birth I have to say that this is drivel.
Most Russian players never behave like they are narcissistic diva's and never threaten to go back to the KHL if their demands arent met.
The NHL has only a handful of russians and they surely bring a lot to the table. I mean in general.
I like your team on many levels and hope Bread signs a new contract and I also hope that this core eventually ends up lifting the ultimate prize in sports.
Probably referring to Johansen, the guy the incompetent morons traded for the best player on our team now.
There is no contract dispute. Bob is acting like an *******.
Ryan Johanski? Should they stop drafting people from Vancouver?
It's nice you were there, and know what happened.
He's just as informed as the folks blaming Kekalainen.
Yes, but I disagree with his uninformed position and prefer my own.
@CBJWennberg10 posted it in the GDT, but he's right that we should chill until after today's meeting between Bob and Jarmo. I don't know as they're going to come out and tell us the entire timeline of what happened after (in fact, I'd be surprised if they did), but there will be some sort of resolution to the matter.
MacKinnon for Bob with other pieces included. Both seem unhappy where they are and can use a change. Would need Bob to sign and trade, but I can dream.
Mackinnon unhappy in Colorado? Haven't heard that. But hell yes, I'd do that trade yesterday. Throw in whatever we need to. Ain't gonna happen though.
If we could somehow add McDavid to Bob the Avs might go for it. I also haven't heard any unhappy MacKinnon rumors...
