Right. And as the playoffs showed, they can do fine without Carter, especially if they get something good in return.

I'm really excited about the possibility of a full season with the Hartnell-Briere-Leino line. That was absolute magic during the postseason.

I like the throw of the dice for Kabanov too. That should be interesting.
Is it too much to ask that we win a fucking playoff series in a year or two? I mean, I'm a patient fan, but, fuck, this is getting a little tiresome. 1993, Mike.

1993

You stockpile enough top draft picks, you'd like to think you eventually get better.

That's really hard to believe. Kind of like the Pirates not having a winning season since Bonds left.

That '93 series was fun though, huge upset.

Beating the Penguins was great....losing to the Habs was not.



And, yes, it's very hard to believe that any hockey franchise could go that long without winning a playoff series, let alone one that had once upon a time been a bit of a dynasty. At least I don't have to sit through too many games in person, unlike Beav. But I do keep the faith.

Much like the resurgence of previously moribund franchises in hockey markets like Chicago and Pittsburgh has been good for the NHL, a similar rise on Long Island would be fantastic. And I hope it happens, too. They also need that Lighthouse project to get the green light, and soon.

Yet it's always funny how some franchises seem to defy the cyclical nature of sports. Teams like the Clippers, Lions, and Pirates never seem to get better, no matter what they do. Here's hoping the Islanders can break out of this cycle.

I beg to differ.

I beg to differ.
I forget if it was the decisive game, or the penultimate game, but you guys had like 14 men on the ice for the game winning goal and it bothers me still. Not that it mattered, we'd have lost anyway but still.

Also, thanks to that fucking bastard Dale Hunter, Turgeon was nowhere near full strength for that series. For a 5 game series it was pretty hard fought, though.

I think they'll make a playoff run this year. Next year, they'll be in it. Year after that, they won't suck balls. So...2013 or so. That will be 20 years. Dear Lord.

Fuck Dale Hunter. And Fuck Darcy Tucker. It will probably Phaneuf taking out our best player next time. Good thing we have Trevor Gillies to beat his bitch ass down now.....



Free Agency tomorrow. My two top picks, Plekanic and Marleau, not available. There's always Volencenek (if we sign him, I promise I'll learn how to spell it) aaannndddd.....Eric Nystrom would be cool, I guess, even if it's just the nostalgia factor. At least he plays hard.

One thing about Garth Snow - you never know. I like 'em. I also like EL NINO as our pick. Seems like a great kid.

Former NHL enforcer Probert pronounced dead

TSN.ca staff

7/5/2010 5:01:54 pm

The OPP have confirmed that former NHL enforcer Bob Probert has died after being rushed to hospital with vital signs absent after collapsing in a boat on lake St. Clair on Monday.

Windsor radio station am 800 CKLW first reported that emergency crews performed CPR on the former Red Wings and Blackhawks' forward and then transported him to Windsor Regional Hospital where efforts to revive him were unsuccessful.

The Probert family has called a news conference at 6pm local time at Windsor Regional Hospital to issue a statement.

One of the most feared fighters in the history of the NHL, the Windsor native scored 163 goals and added 221 assists and whopping 3,300 penalty minutes in 935 career NHL games.

While Probert's bouts with the likes of Tie Domi and Marty Mcsorley were legendary, he was also an incredibly skilled player who played in the 1988 NHL All-Star game. A star on the ice, Probert battled his demons off the ice, including well documented problems with the law as well as alcohol and substance abuse.

Probert was 45 years old.

A couple of observations about the NHL Draft and free agency so far:

1. Boston can suck it. Seriously, take Tyler Seguin, I really don't care. I wish that the Toronto media would give it a fucking rest already. I wasn't all that pleased with the trade in the first place but what is done is done. Can we please stop talking about it now?

2. Kovulchuck needs to make up his fucking mind already and sign with someone stupid enough to pay him. Seriously, dude is holding up a lot of other possible trades, just pick LA or NJ and get your $100 million over the next 15 or 17 years or whatever. It blows my mind that this greedy little fool will be making more than Ovechkin or Crosby after this...

3. I'm actually pretty pleased with where the Leafs are at this point. We are lacking in the top 6 but defensively and in goal we are looking good. If Burke can work some magic trading Kaberle for a top 6 forward we actually could compete for a playoff spot this season.

4. The Calgary Flames are fucked. Seriously, what is Sutter smoking over there? Jokinen and Tanguay are your big moves? Good luck with that...

If Seguin ends up being the player many think he will become, then this is only the beginning. Better get used to it.
