I will enjoy the amerks game, thanks.

This agreement silliness is nothing that ever happens in pro sports.

On the other hand, respect is very important, you're right. Respected vets even get the benefit of the doubt. Respected vets only keep respect for as long as they are (a) contributing; or (b) not getting in the way.

Okposo and the Living Legend are getting in the way and not contributing.

Pommer is a +5 and has 18 points.
Sure, he hasnt produced without eichel or in the last 20 games. You know if we make the playoffs, he will have something to teach the kids. Lockerroom stuff, we have a really inexperienced team.

How many former players that are now GM's have relationships/friendships with current players?

Might be silly, but I find it hard to believe that pommer and jbotts have the standard player/gm relationship

Wouldnt you give big mike, or either steve a different set of rules, if they worked for you?

Your right about okposo. He blows.

It does prove the entire narrative of "young guys have to earn it" is total horsepoop.

Here's the reality:

Young guys can't be allowed to make high-paid veterans look bad

you have spoiled at least as much fun as i have in one way or another.

Nobody asked me but I'd say you are more of a wet blanket.
Kaiser is more of a wet sandwich, Beady is a wet noodle, Fitz is a wet dream, Gerbe is wet behind the ears, Tom Brady used to throw to Wet Welker, and Wet Bandit is a....never mind.

This phrase is used so often about so many players that it has lost all meaning. If 1 point in 14 games is fine for a 12/13 role, then anyone can do it
- jcragcrumple


Anyone who doesn't need time to develop properly.

It's either Larsson, gigs or now Elie?

Never the guys with actual expectations that bother you?

Erod
Mitts
Okposo
Sam at times
Sheary
Pommer
Sobotka

You know the middle 6 guys that actually have talent.
But have done next to nothing.

Those guys do'nt bother you?

Elie as a healthy scratch never bothered me, neither did Elie as 4th liner really. Wilson as healthy scratch is fine too. As long as the 13th F isn't a kid who needs to be actually playing, I really don't care.
- Lunaion


I don't have a problem with Elie, but Wilson is the better player, therefore I have a problem with him taking a spot from him. That's all. Wilson can be 4th line or scratched. Either way, he brings more offense, so he should get the nod unless his injury set him way back.

Elie's stats project to 6 points over 82. That's abysmal

Good point.

Depends on the friends.

I've hired friends when I really need someone trust worthy.

You wonder what pommer had to say about-
Lehner
Kane
Ror
Chad

Maybe pommer helped cleanse this organization of these guys?

Samson does not belong on that list and you know it. I think he has more points than the rest of the list combined, maybe 15 short lol. You're being unfair again, this is my fair warning lol.

Erods projcted 3.9 goals over 82 games is 2 x abysmal.

We have put 0 into Elie's development

He can stay or go

Not saying Elie isnt terrible. BUT, since we claimed him he has practiced as an extra forward or extra D-man like 70% of the time (not exact).

A lot of tweeners get this role. We used to use D-Lo.

I imagine if Wilson was recalled and Elie waived, we would see Wilson adopt it.

He's also on pace to sit 60 times. Why are we talking about him? No one wants Smith sitting 60 times.

E-Rod would quadruple his point production, but 4 is closer to 0, so goals it is.

Goals are important, please stop pretending that it's ok for erod to have 2 goals on the season.

Especially when angry larry has 4
And is now the 2c for tonight.
