Posting that link right from the start would have stopped people from questioning your sanity.  :mrgreen:
Yeah . . . I don't think so.

Matt Puempel is the pick that I'm most intrigued and interested in. 
He's a former CHL Rookie of the year, and the track record for the winner of that award is incredible.

2009–10 Matt Puempel, Peterborough Petes[2]
2008–09 Brett Connolly, Prince George Cougars[3]
2007–08 Taylor Hall, Windsor Spitfires[4]
2006–07 Patrick Kane, London Knights[5]
2005–06 John Tavares, Oshawa Generals[6]
2004–05 Benoit Pouliot, Sudbury Wolves[7]
2003–04 Sidney Crosby, Rimouski Océanic[8]
2002–03 Matt Ellison, Red Deer Rebels[9]
2001–02 Patrick O'Sullivan, Mississauga IceDogs
2000–01 Scottie Upshall, Kamloops Blazers

Offseason to-do lists from around the NHL

Ottawa Senators - Meet with scouts and coaches to prepare an in-depth analysis of the various strengths in Craig Anderson's game; work on a detailed action plan for destroying them.

Boston Bruins - Repeatedly call up Taylor Hall, ask him how that whole "being picked #1 overall" thing worked out for him. (Tyler Seguin only.)

I think getting a full season under his belt as a number 1 starter would be better for Lehner than sitting on the bench for 60-70 games.
I would go even one further, and say maybe two years. . . .with a game here & there with the big club.
Afterall, he's only 19 . . .goalies don't fully mature until 35 or 37 anyways.

It's a sad day.. Man I hate Tim Thomas
Really ?
Is it his Vezina(s) ? His Conn Smythe ? His name on the Cup ? Possible Hart Trophy winner ?
Maybe it's his record-setting SV% ?
Or his struggle to get here ?
Or his genuine love for the game ?
His never give-up attitude ?

Yeah, I guess I hate him  too .

. . . if you ever do fully recover from the suicide of a child.
I would say that over the years . . .the dark times will become less for them.
But I can't imagine EVER getting over the death your child.

A parent should never have to bury their child.
Whether as a child, a teenager, an adult  . . .it should just never happen.

I predict Kelly will get the winner!!!!  :A_laughing_matter:
Don't know what's so funny about that.
He's had a pretty good playoffs so far.

But now were complaining about goalies delivering the odd slash?  Why, that's how I like my goaltenders!

Yeah, he was pretty good at it.

So was this fellow

I like the kid a lot, and playing in Toronto doesn't seem to bother him at all. 
At the end of the season, with nothing to lose, and all things going your way  . . .it's a lot easier not to be bothered.
I hope the kid can put a bad loss(or a series of losses) behind him . . .more than the media is able to.

I wish him well.

The leafs have signed Reimer to a three year extension. . . no mention of $$$
This is good
I like the kid.
He's solid in nets, level headed, well spoken.
I hope he's not a flash-in-the-pan, or the pressure of playing in Toronto isn't too much.

Sens Talk / Re: Alfie Having Back Surgery Friday
« on: June 08, 2011, 01:07:40 PM »
I said in a thread a while back that I had a feeling that Alfie was done... I Still feel that way.
Apparently, Alfie's back surgery is only necessary to compete at a high physical level.
Every day life, and even regular exercise would be OK without the surgery.
So I gotta assume that Alfie has weighed the pros & cons  . . .and intends to return for at least another year.

I'm talking the 60's and the 70's and they were a requirement for two-wheelers.  I remember being excited because I could finally get a licence when the time arrived!  There were serial numbers on bikes because I remember looking for it, writing it down and going with my Dad to the police station to buy my licence.  Some people hung them from the back of their seat but my Dad put it under the bolt on my front tire.  There was a minimal charge for them and we would get out dog's licence renewed in the spring when we picked up my and my brother's bike licences.  I, too, remember the police coming to school for 'bike safety' days and, for those days, just about everyone brought their bikes and at the end of the day, they had a "bike rodeo" driving around pylons, stopping and starting, etc.
Rose, did you go to my school ?
It sounds like we were neighbours growing up.
I also, attached my license to my front tire.
At our bike rodeos, there were points given for various skills.
At the end the day 4 or 5 kids got a new bike based on their point totals.

Congrats to Bingo and their fans.

Quote from: Johnny English
I'd struggle to justify that much for anything less than two SC Final tickets.
I paid $600 for two nose-bleeds seats - Game 3 - SC Final - Ottawa - Anaheim.
For me, it was worth the price of admission
