  1. The talk about when he’ll be ready? I feel like the pretty typical model at this point for guys taken around that spot in the draft is one year in junior/college and then making the jump. I’m guessing we’ll see the same here.
  2. I’m willing to bet that when they signed Mittelstadt, they made he guarantee that he wouldn’t be sent to the AHL. It can’t be put on paper, but it’s a gentleman’s agreement they want to honor.
  3. I can’t count the number of Jamaicans I’ve run into in the Yukon.
  4. And they’re from different countries.
  5. But what if the 80s oilers are coached by Ditka?
  6. I wonder if Justin Williams walks now that Carolina had added a different old guy leader.
  7. Did I hear Minnesota as the school he’s heading to?
  8. My nephew wore a bow tie to his brother’s first communion this spring. He looked just like Pee Wee Herman. His dad wasn’t very happy when I suggested it as a Halloween costume.
  9. Listening to some local radio earlier this week, it did sound like they were going to have some trouble with Aho. They didn’t get into specifics, but basically it sounded like it could be a long drawn out process, lots of distance between both sides. That seems fairly common at the start of a negotiation, but it’s worth watching. The owner is notoriously cheap, so it could get interesting. The show I was listening to has been very high on the ball washing scale since he bought the team. So this segment really stuck out to me because it was the first time they were a bit skeptical of him. They’re starting to see the light.
  10. I can’t wait until this one gets cleaned up. This board goes to **** when the topic becomes the poster instead of the game. Meanwhile the Sabres drafted some guy by the name of Ryan Johnson.
  11. There was what, one deal the whole night? It kind of makes you wonder how much if any interest there was league-wide to move around.
  12. “We liked player X more, but we instead decided to take player Y.” Call me crazy, but I don’t expect anyone to operate that way.
  13. But none of it is real since those deals aren’t official for a few weeks. That’s such a screwy system.
  14. That seems a bit extreme thought. It’s not that they don’t think he can be a good nhl player. They just think that some number of others stand a better chance. The kid will go in the second round and that’s still a very significant accomplishment.
  15. Fortunately we have now canceled the remaining 6 rounds.
