Haha jk, wouldn't it great to catch these turds that are responsible for those viruses. They should be beaten to death with a laptop You know the funny thing is though? When they do catch them, they don't punish them. A lot of the time, they give them a job in hopes that they will use their inteligence for good in the company instead of bad trying to ruin it.
Yeah I have heard that pitt! its like making a bank robber head of security in a PNC bank after it gets robbed. Thats justice for ya......just like slump and my buddy Yakov Smirnoff always says......"what a country"
Yeah slump I am starting to wonder if kathy is mama LOL
Good to see the Hawk in the HOF! he had HOF numbers, still dont know how he played in the later years hobbling around on them knees.
Turco is still a good goalie and I really dont think he will get the 5+ mill he got in Dallas. Niemi should get about 1.8 is my guess, and I would sign him at that for sure. Many think he is a bust which I just laugh at. How can you be a bust (not as good as shown) and win the cup? granted he did have awesome blue liners in front of him but he had more things flying around his face than Pamela Anderson. the 29th is arb day for him lets see if stan can get er done.
Mercy then White Sox have been playin some ball! I watched last nights game (big John Danks fan) and they have a scrappy team.
good idea on getting a seperate puter for porn the sited I go to are safe (so the claim) and I wear a glove so.......
Tatum and Atkinson had a point system: Can't remeber how it worked but it was something like 3 points for knocking someone out of the game, 1 point for limputs from the field. Tatum maybe most feared hitter all time from Safety spot.
You know, the Tigers have some nice players though..Verlander, Boesch CABRERA teh rookie CF Jackson... they are going to be all right. I watched them get swept by Tampa, but Tigers are OK IMO. Just got injuries etc
Hey sorry boys I am lost in the real world and NO not the MTV Real World.
Yes Niemi....Yawn he is a good goalie with GREAT blue liners infront of him. Yes he did come up big in the playoffs but..........He was a non thought at the begining of the season, I was more concerned on weather or not Huet could fill the Pads on the departed Khabibulin. Fact the Blackhawks gave up a lead leading shots on goal during the regular season but most of them were from a low percentage angle. NOW Turco is in town and I like it he had a better save percentage than Niemi and thats the true tale of how to judge a goalie. Keep in mind Turco was in Dallas on an aging Stars team.
Hey Fernando! Yes there will be Fernando Pisani sighting in the UC this year, he signed a one year deal to play on the fourth line. I think you will see another signing or two like this but not on the blue line,........I see a Center coming in for sure.
I went to the Raiders Bears game Saturday! I got Booed as I walked through the lot while wearing my beloved Silver and Black. My son wasnt so happy about it but I welcomed the Love.........................Raider s 32 Bears 17
Salary cap keeps making free agency leftover plate larger every year it seems. Tons of players without a team that without a cap would definitely be signed by now.
Agents of those players can't be happy probably telling their clients to sign with a KHL club instead. Slump ur right man! It's been a sad summer of FA signings with many decent middle-class NHLers still waiting for the phone to ring. Now I'm ot sure if it's completely bad that the middle class are getting squeezed out of the league because the flip side is that new NHLers are being unleashed on the league. The only question is... Is there enough talent in those new young players to improve the on-Ice product or are they simply watering down the game with the AHL calibre play?
Personally I've got no problem with Bill Guerin, Paul Kariya, Jose Theodore, Chelios, getting the cold shoulder... they haven't done jack for some time.
Lions look decent Vanden Boesch on one end and Suh on the other! Suh for being a DE I must say is highly intelligent for a dude the size of a truck. He is already getting double teamed. Speaks well not like a inner city thug.an:He is African. I loved the Cornhuskers since Johnny Rodgers the Heisman Trophy winner and dubbed the Ordinary Superstar by the Quebec (Montreal Alouette) Press. Glad they told Texas to play with themselves and joined th Big 10 which was always my favorite football conference before moving south and becoming an SEC fan. Big 10 will rock with Penn State and Nebraska..definitely going in the right direction ..... slowly .... LOL
Anyway, he is a true monster of a player and I agree the Lions are looking much better, beginning with the Stafford pick and continuing with Suh and other recent moves. Finally!
Red Wings ALWAYS want to have less PIM's than their opponents. It is a large part of theri team M.O. They lifted this from the old Montgreal Canadian play book of 60 years ago and continue down the path. Bowman helped write the book...subtle interference vs thuggery. That is why gusy like terry Harper had their faces mashed..opponents jsut got frustrated... with the Devil like BS that another trained Hab Jacques Lemaire brought over for the 1990's trap - inducing Brett Hull and Lemieux to call the NHL a garbagfe league..but it was a sneaky Hab league...
I am not sure about the deal with veterans on FA lists. If Colby Armstrong gets what he got, I think average players are still getting paid... I have to thik the guys available want more than what teams value them at...they want longer term contracts adn teams are NOT INTERESTED in paying aan old Bill Guerin more 2.5 million for three years...and the agents wanting one last paycheck for their pimped meal ticket.... hold on and hold on.... what do they care if their guy gets 1.75 million vs 1.5 million...10 is only worth another 25,000 to them...they want that 3 year deal for 1.5 million (an additional 300K to the agent ) and will even advise KHL cause agent hardly cares if player is unhappy and family wants to break upu..might even mean player hangs on for a contract till age 40..
Your WORST FRIEND is your agent in most cases I figure..I would NEVER have an agent myself..I woudl do all negotiations and hire one time consultants for my taxes AND maybe to do with tidying up my contracts..get a tremendous Tax lawyer familiar with the NHL agreements.... maybe pay a veteran GM who is aware of present rules and not working as a consultant..give him 10,000 for his opinion, a weeks work and then some follow up advice (jsut a phone call once in a while)..easy 10 K...alwyer gets 25,000 for the contract and tax consultations..... hirfe a tyhpical accontant for about 1000 dollars a year (not hard to do a set income) ...adn then hire a PR guy and make it mostlly incentive based ...allto do with promotions and advetising... give Marketing manager maybe 25%...but..marketing manager must submit a business plan and shoe he has awareness of NHL trademark clauses AND also the ability to brand or sign up contracts.... ...... I figure 35,000 in contract negotiation year plus 1000 annually for tax preparer and then a percentage on the marketing dude.... he can maybe have an annual budget of 5000 to work with dn then can co-op all the other materials with grateful suppliers and co marketing ventureres.... You get much, much more professional support with this plan AND pay onlyu about 7-8% on entry level contracts at league minimum...but if you get a huge contract..even though you give them a tiny bonus..your percentage paid out drops to maybe 1 % and you get top notch talent mazimizing your take home income, Gross income and marketing money....
PigsRule- I think the salary cap is a necessary evil but think for sure that my Wings would be rostering a way different looking team if they there was no salary cap. Yes I think the talent is watered down under this strict cap forcing many players that just are not NHL ready to contribute now.
Jeez! Only one home game against your habs this season These games are always huge draws from local fans in Michigan and people coming in from all over Ontario and the diehards from Quebec attending. Circle the calender Friday Dec.10th at JLA. I gotta go to this game. What do you think of Gauthier job as GM so far? Markov signed for only this season gotta believe the org wanted to lock him in long term and Price haven't even heard what the arbiter ruled in his RFA case, what's the delay? Gauthier has a plan for the Habs but it's not your conventional "go for the obvious" strategy. Would've liked to see Dominic Moore and Halak stick around. The Plekanek deal was too rich IMO and he'll be hard pressed to trade Plek if he underperforms which the guy does every other year. As for Carey Price... man, I think Gauthier just got stuck with Price because he still wears a small "franchise goalie" tag and there's a fear that Price will broken out playing anywhere else which would reflect badly on Pierre if he moved the guy when Price's value was at it's lowest. Markov - I see him getting signed by mid-season to a hometown discount of sorts. Afterall we need a vet D to mentor the young Dmen.
Habs and Wings, always seem to have a tough time against DET.Never really much fun to watch as a MON fan, but great to watch as a hockey fan who wants to see how a truly skilled team moves the puck and keeps the flow going thru 60mins.
Yeah the big move in the Big 10.................err 12? Nebraska, one thing said about them is they travel very well. Then again what else is there to do in Nebraska? Good football school though it will be interesting for sure.
Yawnnnnnnnnnn............Big brother has gotten boring for me too many dudes left.......where is all the eye candy. I have a thirst for drama so truth be told its Jersey shore or Bad girls club........slump you have to check this show out. Lots of gog wrestling so far and drama o pleanty.
Mercy is Baseball still going on?
I see the south siders are taking a stab at the Manny show, I will have to watch a few more White Sox games to see all the high Jinx
Looks like Stan is gearing up for the future in Rockford......many 08 and 09 draft picks will be playing there this year. Kinda a sink or swim deal to see what these kids have. Brent Seabrook could pull in 2.5 next season he is a RFA we will see how that goes.......I am wondering about Marty Turco next year, if he and the hawks have playoff success will he reup for a sane amount? I dont think Stan will pony up big coin for a goalie.
Work has been work kinda getting busy compaired to what it has been. I got some drama there too but I think its deliberate. I am a contract salesman with a 3 year deal and I am outspoken, the Man dont like that haha but I am not gonna change now.
Yea Slumpbuster: You did have some muscle with your cup tams"I know for a fact you have been calling for Holland to get jsut ONE enforcer for two straight seasons on this board.
I buy American cars Me too. We had a friend (not much of one really) who bought a Lada maybe 30 years ago or whatever...anyway, we counselled him firfecely not to by the Ruskie car and prompltlly renmaned him Lada Mike forevermore when he did not heed us. One time, 4 Quebec businessmen were scrunched in a LAsa in their business suits. I wlaked up to their car from mine at a green light, and indicated to the driver to roll down his window, He obliged and they were smiling: I said, ÿou all ought to be ashamed of yourselves driving around in this car". They rolled the window down and I returned to my okd GM car LOL.
But the funnies was the commercial that Lada had playing in Ottawa. It bragged that the Lada was so tough that you couold kick it and it woudl not dent. So one day the two car lots in the city had every car kicked in!
Yeah slump I watch that bad girls club with the sound down and music on........yep eye candy is very good.
BB brittney was ok but not my fav cant remember who was now lol been too busy with the "real world" latley. I agree Lane doesnt need to win, I bet he just wants to show his dad he can do something on his own lol
I have a feling that the Cubs will suck for a long time to come...............tickets will be easier to get thats for sure. It kinda makes me flashback to the late 80s when I spent many of my college class time in the bleachers.
Ok I sep up the pickem league and sent you an invite, its the same league as last year its on yohoe league #49966 PW Blackhawks
