That's Boston Bruins 2010-11 deep.
Howson throws down the gauntlet and flat out says that Rick Nash asked to be traded.
The gloves are off in C-Bus.
Whats the point of coming out with a statement like that? It doesnt help matters.
Maniacal Laugh, Maniacal Laugh, Maniacal Laugh
Am I the only one that thinks the Edmonton Oiler blueline actually got worse after that trade?
To me, Tom Gilbert is a decent #4, while Nick Schultz is a solid 3rd pairing guy. Very much in the mold of Filip Kuba.
I don't really understand what Tambellini is doing.
That statement ties Howson's hands, publicly. So Howson fired back.
Once again, the Blue Jackets fan base suffers in the end.
i ain't paying dick for Nash now... Howson should be fired and then immediately fired upon.
i think it's a good deal both ways... i like Gilbert to the Wild a bit better. but he gets paid an awful lot for the next two years.
i just saw a snip of Tambellini's presser where he talked about Hemsky being the number one priority, and talking about going into the deadline, losing "that skill," and having to replace it. WOW! has it not dawned on him that he's about to likely draft one of two VERY skilled Russian kids in June?
he should have dealt BOTH Hemsky and Gagne.
... and when you go and look at the Oilers' fan's reaction to the Hemsky signing on HF, i'm amazed that they've been able to convince themselves that $10 Million over 2-years for Ales is even remotely good... on ANY level.
