    COMMON HOSSA!!

    Only 1 hour left and the Habs have managed to get WORSE for this season. I sure hope Gainey has something up his sleeve.

    We're running out of years in this decade. The Habs have won at least 1 Championship in every decade in the history of the league.

    Malkin, Crosby and Hossa on the same team??? Wow. It'll be hard to re-sign Hossa in the offseason and if that's the case, that's a heck of a lot to give up for a rental player.

    The Pens also picked up D-man Hal Gill from the Leafs for a pick.

    I like the Mike Smith pick up by Tampa. They needed a goalie really bad. He was good with Dallas, but just had to back up Turco. We'll see if does well in Tampa's system.

    I'm shocked you haven't picked him up yet in our fantasy league!

    Well, I can't be messing around in my do or die position with only two weeks left. Plus I want to see how Andre Fleury works out. I've already got three goalies and that's one too many.

    Even if I had wanted to do it I couldn't because work has it blocked. Plus I don't kniow if Tampa just had crap goalies or if they just play crappy defense and leave the goalies out there. But if he does well, and if he is still there, I will dump someone and grab him, I think. Obviously, my theme team concept has been my undoing this season...

    It's just the wrong team, that's all.

    Last year the theme team idea worked for Tater.

    This year his geography is all screwed up. (St. Louis IS in Missouri!!!)

    [​IMG] 12. Colorado Avalanche (37-27-6, Previous: 13) – The Avalanche are 6-1 since the deadline when they aggressively added some familiar pieces in forward Peter Forsberg and defenseman Adam Foote along with Ruslan Salei. Foote, with the Quebec/Colorado franchise the first 13 years of his career, averaged 21:42 in five games while Salei skated an average of 19:38 on the backline in six. Forsberg has been another story. Or rather, the same old tired story. He’s nursing a sore groin now after battling ankle and foot ailments and has appeared in just three games.
    -
    Should we be worried about this, a wounded Forsberg is still pretty dangerous.

    Do not worry about this. Forsberg is only a danger to himself...
