    I don't think this is what we need... I'm actually pretty satisfied so far with the defense, hopefully they can continue to shut it down...

    You beat me to it by seconds. Shane O'Brien and Oulette to the Canucks for...Lukas Krajicek and right wing Juraj Simek.

    Barf the magic dragon, what the hell are the Canucks doing!!?
    I think it's more what the hell is Tampa doing?

    I think it's a little of what the hell are these 2 smoking?? LOL

    That site appears to be going through a massive tailspin...
    You can still hit his latest blog though. Someting is going down: http://www.hockeybuzz.com/boards/thread.php?thread_id=54682&page=4

    Now would be the time to recruit more knowledgeable members for OUR site.

    Yeah it would be neat to get an insider to write for us every once in a while... I'm sure if we keep mentioning the site, as it grows it will attract some writers too...

    I understand and don't really mind when someone makes a typo or a spelling mistake. But if someone points it out to you, at least learn from it. My thesis supervisor corrected my draft copy and, apart from the usual pointers on content, there was one glaring error -- irregardless. I have *never* used that since that one time being called out for it, and you'd better believe I spot it immediately when I see or hear it used by someone else.

    Just don't go using long or uncommon words or phrases unless you know how. Like "a birth in the playoffs" or the aforementioned "pension for giveaways".

    Those HB bloggers are a little sensitive about their bad grammar, presumably because none of them have any background in writing. I think I reduced the BUF blogger, Garth, to tears over there when I told him that his writing lacks professionalism and his cheesy puns are more stale than the 3-year-old bag of plain chips sitting in my cupboard.

    Hockeybuzz i'm pretty sure is on it's way out... They will never be as big as they were... People are getting so fed up with the way it is run over there, that now they are making their own sites.. I think they may be starting to realize it over there at HB too... Looks like they are going to start making changes...

    Kinda like closing the barn door after the horses are gone, no?

    EDIT: not that I have any sympathy, or want them to change

    It's like when you have to stare at a car crash...even though you know that there isn't anything to see. Sad, really.
