    The hammer was dropped on this organization fully less than two years ago. We've attained some high-end talent and a generational player through the draft. We're lucky enough that a good chunk of that talent has been/ is NHL ready and pretty damn good too. We've got one of the top coaches in the league developing not just the players themselves but the organizational attitude throughout including how to handle the media, fans, approach the game, learn the system it takes to win. We acquired a stable goalie so the young players can just play the game and not become distracted by bad goaltending. After a surprisingly good season, we've augmented the team with short-term contracts for good veteran players that are also leaders but it's still nowhere near complete due to both inexperience in the core group and unfinished on-the-ice product though some of the pieces potentially, even likely, exist in the system. This year, they are learning a defensive system after the fun the first handful of games. Someone please tell me how this isn't part of the rebuild? Just because we are losing games and are on a shitty run right now does not change that this is still a process we are smack in the middle of, organizationally, both on and off the ice.

    Look what I bought!

    So, I was looking at some powered speakers from Long and McQuade to go with this 16 channel board I scooped, but for one (1500 watt speaker, it would of cost me $799. I decided to give kijiji a boo and wow...this sunday this will be in my living room! Best grand I ever spent. A band from Saskatoon who use to use this system for rehearsals and he said that he used the subs for only about ten hours and they did not need to use them for practise. Dude even said he was throwing me an extra monitor....holy dealio of the year award. Check this out...too excited. Selling out bands old PA system. Works great. 2 passive yorkvilke YX18s subs. These were literally only used for maybe 10 hours tops. 2 made in Germany DAS passive monitors. One is 10" the other is 12". The one powered mixer is an 1100 watt 9 channel sound tech PMX10SD and the other is a 1000 watt 2 channel Yamaha P2700. Includes all cables to hook up. A steal at $1000. Price firm. He shoots, He scores!!

    Stats taken out of context are meaningless and frankly they undermine your overall point, which I believe is fundamentally sound. Most of those 'w/o Polak' games were played before he signed while we were riding an unreasonably high and unsustainable shooting % and scoring seven goals a game. At no point was a 129pt season a feasible outcome or a reasonable expectation this year, or probably ever, and Roman Polak has nothing at all to do with that.

    Middle of nowhere is exactly where I want to be. People suck and cities are shitholes. I mean, Vancouver can be fun and all, but I want to stay the fuck away from people if I can. I was only on the island last year for a few days, but I did love it. Shame I didn't have the chance to explore it more. Tofino was as far as I got. But being the rock head that I am, Squamish is my go to and hopefully within the next few years, will be my new home (or close to), because fuck Ontario. Fuck Ontario harder than fucking the Habs and Sens combined. Close to Whistler, close to the Chief, that's all I want in life... and maybe a vineyard/ farm filled with puppies and a smoking hot sugar mama... So safe to say I need to work my ass off for the next little while so I can move out West and be established, instead of starting over at minimum bumfucking wage. Why does adulting suck sooooooo much shitty dickpeen smegma? Wish me luck folks. I need to get the fuck out of here and soon before I off myself and hundreds of innocent bystanders.

    One of the most straight line developed prospects I remember that wasn't a blue chipper coming in. It's amazing to me that they made some moves at the draft to specifically get this player. No telling how high he'll end up on the depth chart but it will be fun to watch. Are we allowed to say Hunter knows what he's doing now @hobarth

    Gardiner is high Risk/Reward who is in the "on the wagon" part of his season where he is reaping the benefits of playing in the highly productive offensive part of the game. Sometimes the decisions he makes create a goal from nothing, the other times he doesn't know where his own end responsibility is or he makes a bad decision with the puck. Rielly is much more steady, and for the first time in his career isn't propping up a partner (the Marincin's or the world) who has no business playing in the same situations as him. Having said that, I'd be fine with Rielly-Zaitsev Gardiner-Hainsey Dermott-Borgman Rielly is our best D man regardless of who he plays with. If anyone needs to get a bump from his play, why not Zaitsev? Getting that dude up an running gives us a legit top pair for once in our lives. We're assuming Zaitsev is just having a sophmore year afterall. When he gets back into top form he should arguably be in our top pairing anyway. Then if Hainsey gives Gardiner a safety net that's another pair settled. The only reason Zaitsev was with Gardiner in the first place was because Zaitsev was able to give Gardiner someone with a little more balance to partner up with. Dermott deserves to stay here, and Borgman and Carrick can decide the rest for now. All of the sudden we don't have to worry so much about trading Marner or Nylander or JVR for a top d d-man in quite such a hurry. It'd still be nice...but we can be a little more pick and choosey about it all.

    I stand by my earlier post and believe that at least one of the other two players should have covered the net. Do all of Jakes teammates believe that he wins battles along the boards? One of them should of tried to stay or skate towards our crease to ensure a safety barrier for the open opponent coming in that scored. Bozak was the last trailer of the three headed in the corner. Yes we know Jake shy's away from being hit and I do not like it either. There are times where he will push the puck out towards one of our players out of desperation to avoid a hit himself putting the teammate in the exact same position of being hit instead. I don't like it, but we all know that Jake is not the type of D whos forte is board work. I just feel that three players going towards the same area in that instance is a no no and pond like, so you cannot just blame Jake for that one although it would be great to see him battle and take a hit or give one or play the man like I said earlier. Lets call it three brain farts.

    Matthews doesn't fuck around. When he rallied behind and showed support for Andersen, he damn well meant it. That's what I admire most about him: Not only does he possess the skillset to be an excellent player, but when the team needs support, he's there to back them up all the way.
