  1. Patrick Sharp is coming to town.

    Fair enough HiM...and I really do hope you're right. Interesting point about passion, it did seem to be lacking during the last 2 PO series.
  2. Patrick Sharp is coming to town.

    Whoa relax....where did I ever say I'm expecting miracles. Clearly the team has cap issues & first order of business is to clear space. Explain how adding a 35 yr old winger coming off a concussion & hip surgery plus trading a center helps address the cap issues. Sure there are more trade possibilities (besides Kruger) but in my mind Sharpe isnt a candidate to bring back much of a return, all im saying is this doesn't directly address most pressing needs...only adds to an already tight cap issue.
  3. Patrick Sharp is coming to town.

    I don't mind having Sharp back, particularly at <$1m per but they really need help up the middle and on the blue line....this addresses neither of these issues.
  4. Hawk Moves (Real Time)

    No, you are correct. I just think it would be easier to control the situation if he stays on hawks roster. What happens if next year Phx doesn't need the contract to reach the floor (unlikely I know) and they release him? If I'm not mistaken, hawks still get hit with recapture.
  5. Hawk Moves (Real Time)

    Yes but if he does retire the recapture hits the hawks cap...I just think it would be easier to ask him not to retire if he's still part of the family in some way or another
  6. Hawk Moves (Real Time)

    The only problem is if Hosea retires early the recapture hits the Hawks regardless of what team he's on...maybe, just maybe he'd be more inclined to ride out the length of the contract with the hawks. Neither he nor any other organization has zero incentive for him to stick it out if traded. having said all that the cap space (without any caveats) would be welcome!
  7. Hawk Moves (Real Time)

    Really like both of these moves. Saad > Panarin 1000 times! And it is tough to see Hammer go but as Gig (I think) mentioned, he has shown a little wear & tear. While the trade was Hammer for Murphy, Murphy brings pretty good size, 6'3", 212, is 6 years younger and is a right handed shot...I do believe he could be a long term replacement for Seabs. He was drafted 20th overall & every scouting report I've seen mentions that he has a little edge to his game. i know Q is a little averse to purely physical dmen but with Samuelson on the staff maybe that changes a little.
  8. Yakupov to Hawks?, Het (nyeht), Blues

    Thank God!!!

    Like jumbo shrimp or government intelligence...
  10. Hawks Sign Jordin Tootoo

    Right on.....guess that means the comment wasn't directed at you.
  11. Hawks Sign Jordin Tootoo

    As usual I'll let things play out before making a judgement but I did think of something pretty fun as I was reading the comments in here.... My guess is that most of the people who don't like this signing would also tell you how much they loved Keith Magnuson.
  12. Hawks Sign Soupyyyy

    So bad at his job! #purple
  13. You Be The Gm

    This is funny...Kaplan says it and immediately SB is dogged for trading all the centers.
  14. Stan As Gm

    Totally disagree with your assertion that being tired is a garbage excuse! And not really sure why you're ranting about the "everyday" guy and how their jobs compare to professional hockey players?! Not to mention bagging on teachers...but oh well. Anyway, here are some reality based scenarios... Since the 08-09 season the Hawks core have played 117 PO games, TB has played 48. In the last 4 years the Hawks have played 71 PO games to TB's 30. And in the last 3 seasons the Hawks have played 65 to tampa's 30. Keith, Seabrook, toews, Kane & hammer have all played 100 or more PO games in the last 6 years...that's a full season plus at least 3 PO series. And they're all at PO intensity. So yeah, they're probably both physically & mentally tired...and rightly so. Now I'm not saying this is any kind of an excuse (& neither are they, as a matter of fact), but it's reality...like it or not. As to the oilers and islanders not being tired, I'd bet they were exhausted but I will say this...there is much greater parody in the league today and most of the teams they played in the first round (& some in the second) wouldn't be in the PO's today.

    Maybe a life time supply of breaded(?) ravioli, St Paul sandwiches & provel cheese could get it done!
