We effectively took ourselves out of McDavid contention but still not into playoff contention. Tweeners woohoo!

Is that him in the picture? Looks a lot like Hartnell...

As for free agency yesterday I am less than thrilled with the additions so far, Robidas is 37 hundred years old and broke his leg twice last year and while I like Komarov, paying him more than Kadri is not smartest thing to do imo...

At least we dodged a bullet with Bolland though, LN7, enjoy that one.

oh, and Josh Gorges can suck it, I hope he enjoys his time in the armpit that is Buffalo.

Dale Tallon loves overpaying his former players. I swear he made a deal with them all before they won the cup.

Ugh, Kadri. With any luck when his contract is up, we'll say bye-bye.

I'm willing to be patient with Kadri, he's still only 23 and had a 50 point season last year, he's one of my lesser concerns to be honest.

Kadri doesn't get enough credit.

The fact that he developed into any kind of player at all in that system is a minor miracle.

That may be true, and I wouldn't mind him if he was recognized for what he is, a basically mediocre NHL player who can get streaky. Instead he gets far more credit than he deserves.

I have never liked his attitude, the way he celebrates his goals really puts me off sometimes and he basically strikes me as very entitled.

The same is true for at least 98% of all NHL players. Especially if they are from Canada, teenagers who are good at hockey are treated like kings everywhere they go, especially more so if they are good enough to be on track for the NHL as they are almost always the star of the local team. I remember we had one kid who went to my high school who played for 2 months for the Moncton major junior team (he played 3 or 4 games, was a healthy scratch for the rest, and then was cut outright in November) and wasn't any good at all, and the school still treated him coming to school for the first time in November like the Queen herself was showing up. We were all asked to come early that day so that we could applaud as he entered the school. Naturally I thought that was the dumbest shit I'd ever heard and stayed in bed and skipped first period because I knew nobody would be going to class. Worked out great for me

Long story short, things like this are why every young hockey player I've ever met is a complete entitled jerkoff, Sidney Crosby included.

Nathan Horton gave me the bird when I was 16. Why, you ask? I cheered for his team on the road.

Haha. Oh I hear you. My high school is where all the Mississauga Ice Dogs (back when that was Don Cherry's OHL team) went. Most were dumber than dirt and not particularly attractive, but the puck bunnies were out in full force!
