there is NO reason the Oilers really should be as bad as they are they DO have some Very talented young players from their many first rd picks already.Worst front office group in the league given the circumstances with the owner, fanbase, arena costs, etc.
Yes It really makes me wonder what the real issue is in Edmonton. I would have to center it on the coaching actually, the failure to develope. Or could it be more a gel deal? Thes kids have all the talent but lack the ability of team cohesiveness. Also a TRUE leader seems to be missing on this team.Coaching, development, gel, cohesiveness, leadership, ....sounds about right.
Teachers strike gotta be making parents happy, jeez. Ah, gives the cops something to do instead of eating donuts and take drug money for themselves off dealers.
slumpy, are you saying that chicago cops are bored and need things to do?
"It's money you feel you never get back. At some point, we were sold a bill of goods," he said. "Everybody was buying it. Everybody thought, 'Let's not let each other down. Let's do it for the future of the game. Blah, blah, blah.' You're only in the game so long."-Modano
Kwame Kilpatrick trying beat a RICO hammer by the feds, lol. He will join former local Mafia bosses in prison(if any of them are still alive). Kwame should enjoy his freedom now because he will never see the light of day again when the feds are down with him.Which fed prison would he go to if convicted? I'll have to make him a nice t-shirt. I'm a big fan of public servants like Kwame. Chicago radio stations will probably hire him so he can make some money for his defense like they did with Blago.
How many Blackhawks playing over in Europe right now? We got quite a few Red Wings over there.Frolik is the only one over there right now, czech league.
I think the league is still set on expansion to 32 teams, so they have to get a favorable CBA to entice new owners. I wish they would drop the idea.With you. Read a piece on mid 70s age Dick Duff the former Leafs & Habs legend and he said in interview the league is to thinned out with to many teams right now. He misses the days teams of great depth like Oilers and Islanders used to play each other. The six time SC winner makes sense. Don't see how in this economy the league can expand with so many teams struggling to reach cap floor and draw fans.
Kwame, his dad a friend of his and the water department former head are all screwed. Feds using RICO laws against them saying they ran city hall like mobsters. Those clowns will never walk free outside prison after this trial concludes.If they can move the trial to Illinios, there is a place for them as public servants after their diluted sentence. Even the feds abide by Illinios trends over here it seems.
