Toews should be on this team and it's literally driving me insane that he isn't. Hickey has been more than responsible for about 75% of the goals against this season. Watch the replay of that last game against the sharks. As soon as we failed to clear the zone a real defensman would have gone in D-mode. He dove at the blueline trying to swipe the puck like an idiot. Hung Mayfield out to dry.. then Ladd decided to let a guy take 5 shots in a row.

Ladd just standing there watching that guy hack away at the puck was maddening. It's not even laziness, as he didn't have to move at all to do anything about it...he was already right there. He just looked frozen. If you don't want to break a nail by pushing the guy over at least get your stick in there and knock the puck out of the way.

~$900M should help open up some options...you can probably pick up a brand new Viking 92 enclosed bridge

Wet dream. Buddy has a 62 Viking. Incredible boat but a bit out of my price range.

I think watching Hickey just back up completely and avoid contact with Burns (I think) and allow him to just skate in on Lehner and score was change the channel worthy. Have no idea what was running through his mind at that moment. It was hysterical yet disgusting all at once 🤮

Thing is (frank)ing ridiculous



Sidenote: totally out of curiosity...what do you know about Scouts? I saw they make a 42 center console that actually looks really nice. Not that I'm in the market for a $800k boat, but I was curious.

I actually played today😂.

Still looking for another boat not so easy to find these days. Incredible how dry the market has been.

Yeah friend sent me a link for a 92 price was 14 million 😂. Not a fan of scouts. More of a cruising center counsel than a fishing one.

I’ve looked at probably ten boats in Florida. The brokers are the biggest collection of arseholes I walked away from two deals with boats I wanted just because I couldn’t stomach the brokers anymore.

Yeah I knew they weren't big fishing boats. That 42 has some pretty cool stuff but definitely not assuming it's something I'd be running to the canyon in

Just the thought of gassing up that 92 gives me anxiety

My buddy down there recently got the deal of a lifetime. He met this younger guy at the marina where he has his boat. Kid just got gifted a boat from his dead uncle. 48' twin turbo diesels all brand new gps/fish finder, autopilot etc.... kid knew nothing about boats and just wanted to get rid of it. Sold it to my buddy for 6 grand.

good lord

I can maybe understand doing that in the (frank)ing 70's, but it would take about 30 seconds in 2018 to google the make/model/year and figure out approximately what it's worth.

#Isles Barry Trotz says Josh Bailey is dealing with a nagging issue but fully expects him to play tomorrow night vs. #FlaPanthers.

Maybe "rooting against him" was the wrong phrase, but I'll never knock an Isles prospect for doing well. Am I convinced that it will hold up? Nope, not yet. But right now he's putting up really good numbers in the AHL and it's nice to see. At worst, he's the same guy we already thought he was. At best, he's either an NHL'er with the Isles or we can toss him in a trade and not feel so bad about losing him.
- eichiefs9


Suppose he does become an NHL talent.....where does he fit in on this team on that left side?

He doesn't have to fit. They can trade him, try him out at RW, or move someone off the LW to make room. I don't care so much if he fits on the roster or not, I'm just happy to see him playing well. Since organizational depth has already passed by him, it would be awesome if he turned into a real solid AHL'er and had some value in a trade. Imagine being able to acquire a defenseman from somewhere and including him in a trade instead of someone else. He's basically already been written off, so this is like found money.

My buddy said he was out there. Thinks he was on something and wanted quick money.

Only thing he had to do was fix some of the wiring and rebuild one of the turbo's. They turned it into a charter boat. Were making a profit in 2 months. I told him he should have flipped it.

Well (frank) it, if he likes to fish and wants to make some money doing something he enjoys than that's awesome. Boat will clearly net him a nice profit when he sells it, assuming he doesn't Jose Fernandez it or something.

He actually works with me(same company). He has his own 25' center console. His son runs the charter. So he gets 1/2 of all profits from that. Good deal

I get what you’re saying but ultimately it’s not found money if you lost it first. Either way i doubt he or his agent will have him playing his career in the minors. I’m pretty certain if his ceiling within this organization is AHL they’ll move him to Europe or the KHL where the pay is significantly greater than the A.

As for moving someone......i don’t think he’s got greater value in the top 6 than the wingers already signed. I’d even question the bottom 6 as well. So i guess my point is even if he is playing well i don’t see him as a need in this organization.

I guess it all depends what you can turn him into. I mean Griff turned into the best bust ever for you guys.

Granted its a long shot that ever happens again, but you never know.

Oh we all know. 5 years later and his skating is still weak. The handwritings been on the wall. Let’s put it this way. There’s been more top 5 busts that Snow selected than those that have panned out. So, after being a 5th overall pick in 2014, smart money says this kid is going nowhere. Does the name Pavel Brendl ring a Bell??? Ha

Jeez, even if the engines were blown you could have gotten at least 6 grand a piece for them. Guy was probably a crack head.
