Skinner Contract Watch

Recommended Posts

Watching Lehner and ROR succeed in the playoffs, no excel in the playoffs, is making me think nobody is going to want to sign here. Players talk to each other.

Good thing you’ll be wrong. 

You or some other poster I’M SURE typed that exact same thing every year for the past 8 years, if not longer. 

And yet, every year players sign in Buffalo. 

You didn’t quantify it by saying “any top end talent” BTW.

Well fair enough on the precision (if only our goalies were that focused and detailed in their prep!) so let me rephrase it as nobody worthwhile

You have to admit though the whole "culture being fixed" thing becomes a question mark when the alleged problem children are starring in their new locker rooms. It perplexes me and maybe, just maybe, it starts at the top.

I love ROR; he is everything you want in a hockey player.  He wasn't a "problem child" in Buffalo...he was surrounded by a totally broken franchise and did what he had to get the F off a sinking ship, and it worked just fine for him.

Lehner is a different issue entirely--he's a mediocre goalie with substance abuse issues and some mental issues beyond the normal "he's a goalie, of course he's crazy!" stuff.  LOL.

Goaltending is like that if you look around the league though.  It's very unreliable and inconsistent.  Guys get hot, then they get cold.  Lehner will return to normal at some point in the relatively near future.  His fundamental mechanics are not nearly good enough to generate high save percentages on a consistent basis.

Our current goaltending is similar, unfortunately.

Tax Day and still talking Skinner's contract? You don't say.

If Skinner would’ve signed before today would it be taxable income for this year?

Never mind, dumb question.

EDIT: That’s it. Laugh it up.

Who ever thought ROR was a problem child?  He wanted out because he wanted to win.  He played it smart.

Justin Beaver would be a Leaves fan. Makes sense. 

I’m not positive but I think he’s from the GTA

Oops.  I was supposed to post that in the Playoff game thread.

It’s hard to tell what thread you’re in with the new update.

John is a straight shooter. Most likely a quote from JB.

Stratford Ontario, not really close, but Leafs would be the closest team. 

Yeah - Stratford is not the GTA. It's a little closer to Buffalo than Syracuse is, by way of context.

And, FWIW, many Buffalo high school kids have shlepped off to Stratford for the Shakespeare plays.
