A hamster is an upgrade from Garth. I haven't been impressed with Lou so far, but I'll still take him any day over Snow. Snow never would have hired Trotz even if Trotz offered to coach for free.

Outside of Trotz, Lou has not been impressive at all.

2 Way contract maybe?

That's about the only thing that would make it possible to stomach a contract like that.

Maybe Lou does not think about playing in two buildings, but plenty of other players do.

#Isles Transaction: The team has agreed to terms on a four-year contract with Ross Johnston.


What the (frank) is going on, why the (frank) would any rational human on earth do this?

Very Garth Snow like. Completely pointless contract.

Why was Martin needed if you were going to give Johnston 4 years? Lou think Martin is a leader like Messier.

I'm picturing Johnston's agent walking out the door of that meeting laughing uncontrollably and saying "we were only asking for 1 year at the league minimum"

You know what else would be nice? Icing a competitive team. Not a team with 3 fourth lines. I don't care about pounding on anyone or the completely made-up idea of anyone being protected by talentless moron ogres.

I might be drinking some of that Koolaide but i really like that Jan Kovar signing...could possibly be a 2c..if he doesnt work out who know Hughes might be in our future..win win either way..

so i guess you like having people take runs at our players and get nothing back..no fight no hits just ole and watch them score..

I know it doesn't because there isn't a single example in the modern NHL that you or anyone can provide in which there's even a shred of evidence that some goon idiot like Johnston or Matt Martin protected/deterred anyone from hitting anyone else at any point in time.

Oh and not a single person has reported that it's a two-way deal and you kinda just invented the possibility that it's structured to coincide with the end-date of Martin's contract.

Thanks, I'll take this poorly-crafted response as evidence that you don't have an actual answer for any of my points and that you're just deflecting to try and save face a little. Not a good look.

4 year deal takes him just past the 20th anniversary of 9/11 so he'll probably protect against any more terrorist attacks, IMHO tbh
