Welcome to the Rock (by far the most cheesy line of any movie ever made)

That was probably one of the only Michael Bay movies I absolutely loved

I liked the movie. It's when Connery goes through that oven like opening and they think he disappears and then with the music he opens the door and says Welcome to the Rock so facking bad

Couldn't have been about the money, because he was on a one-way and would have made his $2M either way. But I get it. I wouldn't want to go from the 2nd best league in the world down to the AHL where you gotta ride the bus all over a foreign country with nobody that speaks your language (although I, admittedly, don't know how much English he speaks).
- eichiefs9

Well, Kovar is a Czech, not a Russian, so he got used to playing in a country where they speak a foreign language. From what I've read, the amenities in the KHL are nothing too exciting either. Do we know whether the decision to part ways was more Kovar or more the Islanders?

I'm pretty sure I can recite most of the lines from that movie verbatim.

Had to be Kovar. The Islanders sent him to BPT and I'm sure would have preferred to let him get his feet under him in the AHL before making any decisions. They gave him some time/space to make his decision and, from the outside looking in, it looks like they didn't pressure him and it was pretty amicable (obviously that's just an outsider's opinion). This doesn't seem to be the same kind of situation where VGK jerked Shipachyov around last season.

The bottom line is Kovar would rather risk getting on a plane that might not land, than take a bus...……..id opt for the 2 shmilly and take any seat on that bus

I will say Point Break was probably one of my favorite movies, but it was because Swayze was such a bad ass. And Lori Petty was pretty smoking in it too.

Maybe he just saw the handwriting on the wall that he wasn't fast enough for the NHL.

Never saw it. You ever see Rivers Edge, that was a (frank)ed up movie.

That's 100% true, but if Nelson goes down I'd rather replace him with Beau and Beau with Bellows than I would Nelson with, say...Hitchcock/Jones/St. Denis. If any center goes down long-term I would assume they would have to go shopping on the waiver wire or wade into the trade market.

Injuries are a disaster. Lets hope We don't have a major one. I'm already expecting Boychuck to be down for at least 10 this season and that will screw with the d pairings.

No I never have. John Wick was very good. John Wick 2 was more like a violent video game John Wick 3 is coming out sometime in the next year I believe
