The islanders offer sheet to marner rumour is really picking up some speed.

Habby2

1.) 05 Jul 2019 18:37:59
If you see you them moving out salary you know something’s up.


2.) 05 Jul 2019 19:26:54
They don't have to move out salary they can offer sheet and still have all summer to get under the cap. Move out Leddy and bring up Dobson and that solves that issue.


3.) 05 Jul 2019 21:18:33
Marner is listening but trust me he isn't signing an offer sheet from anyone.
He wants to stay here not leave.


4.) 05 Jul 2019 21:35:56
Habby, if you are trying to move a player to rid yourself of the cap hit, do you think you would be putting yourself in a competitive position to do so if you were already well over the cap?

Opposing GM’s would know they have you over a barrel at that point.


5.) 05 Jul 2019 22:43:46
Marner can sign an offer sheet to speed up the process like aho did. Aho didn't want to leave either. And he'd know theyd match.


6.) 05 Jul 2019 23:01:53
Unsportsmanlike that’s true but would you rather work to move dump a contract before knowing if you need the space or take a lesser return to make sure you get the player you’re going after? That’s how I see it anyway.


7.) 05 Jul 2019 23:56:25
It's Ottawa not the Islanders.


8.) 06 Jul 2019 01:32:53
@unsportsmanlike we are talking about nick lefddy here not Patrick Marleau islanders could move him at any time and they wouldn’t have to pay to do so.


9.) 06 Jul 2019 10:51:05
Nevertheless — do you not see how appearing to NEED to trade him would impact his return? You’re not doing yourself any favours by putting yourself over the cap first.


10.) 06 Jul 2019 17:28:22
Actually they wouldn't need to trade Leddy they could move someone else or put somebody on waivers. I don't think they would have to clear a lot of space. But in certain situations what your saying is true it's just in this situation I don't think it would make much difference if any.

Hearing deslaurier is traded too

Habby2

1.) 30 Jun 2019 23:56:30
To Anaheim for a 4th lol.


2.) 01 Jul 2019 00:39:48
Montreal clearing out cap for something big

Gardiner or Duchene? Both?


3.) 01 Jul 2019 03:37:51
Ya. not a good trade IMO.


4.) 01 Jul 2019 05:44:24
Maybe lee and ferland?

Jensen and a 5th to wash for bowey and 2nd

Habby2

1.) 22 Feb 2019 20:59:12
Seems like Washington overpaid, just my opinion.


2.) 22 Feb 2019 22:23:29
i agree dsc.


3.) 22 Feb 2019 23:16:09
Yeah I'd sooner bowey to be honest.


4.) 22 Feb 2019 23:56:11
I personally never head of Jensen before the recent trade rumours on tsn, then I saw the deal. I don't know much about the guy but I'm thinking washington overpaid. Bowey is a solid prospect and a 2nd round pick on top of that? i don't know.


5.) 22 Feb 2019 22:57:30
I like Bowey, lots of people are saying he's a terrible defenceman so Idk. His numbers are good for a young defensemen tho.


6.) 23 Feb 2019 02:13:53
Boom boom he's not the fastest of skaters but he has all the tools to be a 3rd pair dman. Jensen isn't much more then that if any and he's in his prime. caps must like him though they signed him for 4 years.


7.) 23 Feb 2019 21:42:35
Jenson is good tho so it's not that bad for Caps. Bowie looks good but atm Jenson is the better D.

Habs trade schlemko and froese to philly for weise and folin. The weise man cometh lol

Habby2

1.) 09 Feb 2019 18:11:26
I love when people react "unbelievable" to a confirmed trade. change of scenery trade?


2.) 09 Feb 2019 19:14:25
Yes it is pkane but the habs needed a little depth on the right side D with juulsen out. So it might come in handy there too.


3.) 09 Feb 2019 21:16:31
I really like this for Habs. if. Weiss is same player he was. He played his heart out on Habs. maybe not the most skilled or talented, but I never remember being disappointed with his play. he's a 4th liner, who acts like a top liner, jus doesn't have the skill to be one but bring energy, unlike Agostino, who also thinks he's a top line guy. but is jus a mess.


4.) 09 Feb 2019 21:24:44
makes sense habby, is Folin much of an upgrade over Schlemko, i don't know much about him. weise seemed like a good fit in his previous time in montreal so that part makes sense.


5.) 09 Feb 2019 22:53:52
Weise is getting buried in the minors, so it looks like Habby is right in saying Montreal did this for depth for the right side defense. Folin was a victim of Flyer’s depth on defense. He’s not a bad player, but was healthy scratch this year a lot. He should see more ice time in Montreal.

I’m not too sure how this trade benefits Philly though, since they buried both Froese and Schlemko.


6.) 09 Feb 2019 23:00:50
Well he's a righty and schlemko is a lefty. Schlemko is actually better then he has shown in montreal injuries killed his chance of playing here. But he was never getting back into the habs lineup if folin gets a chance he could suprise. I don't see an issue with his skill set preventing him from being able to hold down a 3rd pair position. That being said they could both be in laval for the remainder of their contracts too. From the flyers POV I'm sure they feel the same way about the two players they are getting back. I could see froese coming up and giving them 20 high energy games and you never know a different style could work for schlmko too.

Cherry is gone but who replaces him? My money is on Brian Burke

Habby2

1.) 12 Nov 2019 01:22:37
A sad day IMO. as far as I'm concerned, retire the show. time for a new thing. will probably be the same, jus a new name. Burke is probably a decent choice for the new segment.


2.) 12 Nov 2019 02:37:26
Yeah I agree Sosa well with everything other then the sad day part.


3.) 12 Nov 2019 02:44:37
Replace Ron Maclean too I wonder would bob mcgowen take the job? Not likely lol mcgowen and Burke would be interesting though.


4.) 12 Nov 2019 02:52:19
McLean with a different former player/ coach/ etc every Saturday for some op-ed type stuff regarding the past week in hockey. Or scrap the whole thing but find a way to still utilize McLean fully.


5.) 12 Nov 2019 11:11:28
I think what Sportsnet did was rediculous. he didn't even say anything wrong. he said You people. this world has become way to sensitive . I 100% agree with what he said.


6.) 12 Nov 2019 11:32:47
However, I wish he woulda implied that to all Canadians, not just immigrants. I myself am guilty of not donating enough to those who gave us freedom. Its the way it came out. I think his heart was in the right place.


7.) 12 Nov 2019 15:47:29
I don’t listen to coaches corner so I can’t be for sure but I also heard Don says “you people” in a lot of scenarios. Like more referencing the listeners. He’s not wrong in saying we should be more appreciative of our freedoms. I heard it was long overdue he gets let go though.


8.) 12 Nov 2019 22:05:58
If he had directed toward everyone I would have agreed with him but he directed it toward new immigrants and he said you people come here and enjoy our milk and honey etc. And imo he should have been fired 10 times over the years and I'm glad they finally did it.


9.) 12 Nov 2019 22:08:09
It's nice to see more people not putting up with hate speech too bad they were not doing it 35 years ago when coaches corner started.


10.) 12 Nov 2019 23:18:08
And now he’s doing an interview and essentially blaming everyone except himself. Yeesh.
I’m glad he’s gone.


11.) 13 Nov 2019 09:26:46
Yes chirp he says he shouldn't have said it the way he did but he won't apologize and he's mad at Ron Maclean because he apologized? Sounds like a guy who meant what he said to me.


12.) 13 Nov 2019 10:03:40
What he said was 100% correct and if you don’t agree you’re a terrible person. Millions of good men died for our greed “as in humanity” the least we can do is wear a poppy for a week smh.


13.) 13 Nov 2019 12:43:30
you're 100% missing the point VB, who's surprised tho.


14.) 13 Nov 2019 12:52:43
Because people don't agree VB, does not make them a terrible person. what you jus said is the most rediculous thing I've heard about this whole Cherry story.
Anyway, the one person I lost the most respect for over all this is Ron Maclean. gives the old thumbs up and nods in agreement on Coaches corner, then turns around and stabs his buddy in the back the next day. maybe he was pressured by management, I'm not sure, but I was really disappointed in that.
I just think it's really a sad day when a man is fired on Rememberance day over something he said supporting the men and woman who died to give us freedom of speech, as well as every other freedom we enjoy.
What he said wasnt even racist, or any form of hate.


15.) 13 Nov 2019 20:22:43
You guys honestly can't see anything wrong with what he said? I'll try and explain it a little better when he said you people come here and enjoy our milk and honey he obviously wasn't talking about me or any other life long Canadian cause we didn't come here we were born here.


16.) 13 Nov 2019 20:34:22
He has bashed everyone from French Canadians to European players to women over the years and now he attempted to blame the fact that most Canadians in general don't wear enough poppies on immigrants good riddance Donnie boy you have caused enough trouble over the years time to ride off into the sunset.


17.) 13 Nov 2019 21:49:09
Sorry Habby, I dont. The only thing, are the new people of our country educated in what the Poppy stands for. his delivery may have been ( not mine) but in some views taken wrong. but his message is kinda what is needed. We as a country, not jus immigrants don't honor our troops from past our present as much as we should . I myself am just as guilty if not more than most . I know at work, we all see it as a $120 an hour day . All we do is take a minute. for those who served.
Anyway. This is a hockey platform, I probably over stepped in this one . I will miss Don Cherry and his rants and, Bob Cole last year, Don Cherry this year, jus sad to see guys I grew up watching since I was a little boy gone from my favorite pastime . Means I'm getting old lol.


18.) 14 Nov 2019 02:53:32
I agree with all of that Sosa. But I don't agree with don on this issue. Imo opinion he directed those comments toward new immigrants and more or less blamed them for the lack of poppies he has seen lately. This is completely absurd the fact is there are more lifelong Canadians these days that don't wear poppies it's not an immigrant issue.


19.) 14 Nov 2019 02:56:08
He has said he should have said it differently so why not just apologize to those he offended? There are a lot of people going around saying there was nothing wrong with what he said but how do they explain the fact that don himself has admitted he should have said it differently and would have if he could take it back?


20.) 14 Nov 2019 03:03:17
It was a divisive comment that there was really no need to say cause even if new immigrants don't wear poppies which I know for a fact is not true in some cases. Considering a lot of them are coming from countries who are still at war imo it might be ok to show a little compassion on how they may not celebrate the end of world war 2 like us when the war really didn't end where they came from. people are always ready to point the finger at someone else but in actuallity we life long Canadians don't show the support we should to our vets and that is who his message should have been directed at.


21.) 14 Nov 2019 06:11:44
Habby, I agree with everything your saying., however, I don't think Don Cherry should be a villain for what he said. . I don't believe he meant to offend anyone, race, religion, ect. He was jus standing up for our, his troops that gave us the life we all, born, and new Canadians receive. I wish Sportsnet would have gave him the chance to apologize on one of the most Iconic Canadian platforms our country has ever had. Coaches Corner. and, at the very least. let HIM announce he was stepping down. he is a Canadian Icon, who IMO deserved to go out on his own terms.
We elect a Prime Minister who does black face. . But. we make an Icon a villain for standing up for our troops. makes me wonder what the hell.


22.) 14 Nov 2019 09:35:55
But the big difference between the prime minister and don cherry is they both had the opportunity to apologize and 1 did and the other didn't also one incident was a week ago and the other was 20 years ago.


23.) 14 Nov 2019 15:30:13
Words are only words I don’t see the big deal no matter what anyone says.


24.) 14 Nov 2019 15:58:54
Trudeau did NOT apologize tho! He blamed his numerous blackface incidents on “privilege”. He pushed blame onto being brought up in privilege. He blamed others for his actions!
How about Liberal Jess Allen on CTVs The Social? You here the blatant racist remarks she made?
Her excuse? She said what she said because of her “personal experiences”. W. T. F. ?
So it’s ok for some to push blame and to make terrible excuses (Don was speaking for personal experience as well) but not ok for others?
There’s an insane divide in the world today, U. S and
Canada (very political divide) and it’s double standards like these instances that cause it. Everyone’s always offended! It’s gotten so efin SAD!


25.) 14 Nov 2019 20:35:18
Trudeau said he was sorry several times yupp. Cherry didn't say it once yet.


26.) 15 Nov 2019 00:17:54
Cherry said he should have worded it differently and said “everybody” instead of “you people”. Not much different from the apology Trudeau gave because he had to. I mean the immigration issue is huge and a lot of Canadians probably have the same feelings as Cherry. BTW I don’t think people can be too hard on a guy for doing something that probably wasn’t looked at badly back then.


27.) 15 Nov 2019 03:49:24
Ron Maclean apologized and so did Jess Allen are you starting to see a trend here?


28.) 15 Nov 2019 09:34:09
Trudeau said sorry 5 times in his 1st interview after it was released and several more times the day after can't really see how this was similar to cherry. Also the you people is one thing but what about the you come over here part.? So he thinks it would have been better to say everybody comes over here ., .


29.) 15 Nov 2019 12:05:01
My point was just that Trudeau would probably say anything, like any politician to get votes. In all seriousness I’m sure he does feel terrible about it.

I actually just seen a video of cherry talking about veterans and poppies and also saying you people and clearly not talking about immigrants. I think he’s just really passionate about it. Also couldn’t sportnet have just not run it? Lol.


30.) 15 Nov 2019 15:34:20
Jess Allen never apologized. She doubled down commenting on Twitter comments, and then shut her IG to private.


31.) 15 Nov 2019 16:05:04
And Don Cherry did apologize. in a sit down interview on Tuesday with CTV he said he’s sorry if his rant hurt anyone. So let’s just say all have apologized, but only one gets fired? Doesn’t seem like a divisive double standard at all hey? Exactly what’s wrong with this country and world today. Double efin standards like this.
Don also said he wanted to come back on and be given a chance to explain more and apologize and they wouldn’t let him! Instead sent Ron on to apologize for him. Pretty fair hey?
And the episode of coaches corner this happened on was aired live, recorded and replayed for another two games, they were doing three games at the same time. So they had a chance to hear what he said, and still decided to air it! Don never heard anything about it that night. People cry the next day and he Gets fired. People cry over Trudeau and Jess Allens blatant racist incidents, they don’t get fired. Seems like the Liberal way. Double standards hey?


32.) 15 Nov 2019 18:40:07
100% agree with Yupp.


33.) 15 Nov 2019 21:26:39
And I guess it's the conservative way to compare two completely different things and then talk about a double standard. sounds a lot like Jason Kenney who is talking about how unfair the current equalization program is yet he was a senior cabinet minister for Stephan Harper and voted for the current program when they created it lol. Trudeau didn't lose his job obviously because unlike cheery major sponsors couldn't get him fired but he became prime minister again because there was nobody better to choose from.


34.) 15 Nov 2019 21:27:50
There are plenty of better options that can replace cherry.


 

 

05 Oct 2019 04:37:34
Hey moderator how about digging up another one of those articles like you were posting awhile back. I could use another bit of reading material

Habby2

{Ed001's Note - I will do when I have time mate. It takes a while to do the research and then write them and I have not had much of that lately! The summer period is the busiest for the sites, in terms of traffic, so I don't tend to have time to do anything much other than keep the sites running.}


1.) 05 Oct 2019 12:37:15
Yeah I hear ya.

{Ed001's Note - but I am glad you are interested in reading them. Nice to know that someone reads something when you invest time and effort into putting them together!}


 

 

02 Oct 2019 04:39:26
Is it just me that thinks with redwing being a blues fan and all wouldn't he be better off just ending arguments by saying something like "but the Blues won the cup" or " yeah yeah yeah remind me who the cup champs are again" instead of losing every time by arguing lol. If I live long enough to see the habs win another cup you guys won't be winning any arguments with me that year lol

Habby2

1.) 02 Oct 2019 15:02:35
My question is if he is such a Blues fan, why does he go by redwing? They use to be bitter rivals back in the old Norris division days.
I'd never be SosaLeafs, or you wouldn't be Bruinsy2? I dunno.
And yes, hopefully we can see the Habs win a cup, and end all the arguments that way. I'm getting old, isn't looking good lol.


2.) 02 Oct 2019 15:28:58
He is the old Colt. %100.
He Was sad about the Shattenkirk return and the bashing he took after what he was screaming was his value. So he left for a while. Then came back under the name Redwing.
If this Thomas guy wasn’t a Blue, GTD he wouldn’t be sucking him off this bad.


3.) 02 Oct 2019 15:32:33
And is he also Tank? Or was?


 

 

06 Sep 2019 21:57:04
I thought I would check out the tsn page today to see what they were saying about the gardiner signing but it appears Austin Matthews new moustache is today's big story on there lol. He does look like a 70s porn star though. Hopefully he keeps it and let's it grow Paul Maclean style

Habby2

1.) 07 Sep 2019 10:01:32
He’s got nothing on George Parros.


2.) 07 Sep 2019 21:33:02
Not yet but it's a decent start.


3.) 09 Sep 2019 21:29:11
Closest one to Parros was Sam Bennett's Lanny MacDonald moustache

Number hockey news story of the day willie Nylander changes his jersey number again. Can someone make a trade or send an offer sheet or something?

Habby2

1.) 15 Jul 2019 21:04:28
Number 1.


2.) 15 Jul 2019 21:10:48
U should call up Bergy and tell him to offer sheet Rantanen 5 years x 7.5 mill.


3.) 15 Jul 2019 21:45:18
Yeah or marner for 5 years at 10.4.


4.) 15 Jul 2019 22:07:29
You guys can stop with the Nylander proposals now he’s staying a leaf :)


5.) 15 Jul 2019 22:13:01
@vbbb wasn't a trade proposal bud and I hope he stays a leaf for his whole career.


6.) 16 Jul 2019 00:00:58
Yes I know directed at DetroitMantha.


7.) 16 Jul 2019 10:57:10
I don't know why he's changing his number before getting dealt.


8.) 16 Jul 2019 19:45:07
I heard Nylander for Kotkaniemi.


9.) 16 Jul 2019 20:58:28
I heard it was for alzner.


10.) 16 Jul 2019 21:56:36
Yes, a great signing by Bergevin in Alzner (@mantha NOT habby) Karl Alzner says “ joining the Montreal Canadiens gives him a better chance to win a Stanley cup than he had with the Capitals in Washington. ” quote from sportsnet. ca, NOT Leafs17.


11.) 16 Jul 2019 22:55:25
@leafs17 not anyone else. Alzner said he wanted to win cause he was frustrated with getting bounced in the 2nd round yearly. imagine how frustrating it would have been to get beat every year in the 1st round lol.


12.) 17 Jul 2019 06:27:35
I’ll end the childish stuff because I know you can go on for days habby. Mantha said Dubas was tied for the worst GM in the league and he just stepped in. I didn’t mean to offend you.


13.) 17 Jul 2019 10:50:41
I'm glad to hear that leafs17 like I said before I can keep this going for months not days. But in all honesty I would rather not.


14.) 17 Jul 2019 16:12:39
You are very good at arguing. Are you a defense lawyer by any chance?


15.) 17 Jul 2019 20:11:21
Nope just had a lot of practice lol.


16.) 18 Jul 2019 04:04:01
You guys got to be careful with Leafs17, his feelings are fragile.


17.) 18 Jul 2019 11:53:39
magine how frustrated Alzner must be not even making the playoffs anymore.


18.) 18 Jul 2019 14:58:30
Yeah I know but Laval will have a better team this year maybe he will make the playoffs there this season so he can look forward to that.


19.) 18 Jul 2019 16:10:06
Alzner should be playing in mtl imo, he's actually very solid defensively but just slow. If he works out this summer and improves his skating, he's a solid defensemen imo.


20.) 18 Jul 2019 16:30:56
Welcome back yupper. Not much else to say as an oilers fan eh?


21.) 19 Jul 2019 19:23:37
because everyone's a troll but a leaf fan.
