He continually outdoes himself. His level of irritation knows no limits.

He makes me sick.

I am actually shocked. Karlsson was the last defenceman taken. Lidstrom had his choice between Burns and Karlsson for his final blueliner...and he took Burns.

Shocked.

Lidstrom had a choice, but he left Staal with none.

It's an old-boys club... Karlsson is new... this is how it goes...
I had not realized it was the end of the d-men... not paying a lot of attention to it...

Is that a quote from Bryan Murray in one of his trade negotiations?

Haha.

I tune him out whenever possible. If he somehow becomes affliated with the Senators, I'll have to take a long look at becoming a Flames fan again. Laugh1

If that is the way you feel, can you imagine what potential free agents opinions will be?

You don't think it's a co-incidence that the Sens and Leafs were the "last" picks in each round?

Wink

It's a conspiracy!!!!!

I kinda feel bad for him. He did well hide the disappointment and embarassment. He wanted nothing to do with talking to Duthie.

Edmonton with better weather, and less hockey history.

The only downside is Lidstrom could have benefitted from the in-game mentoring Karlsson would have provided. His loss.

I was thinking last night while watching the draft that if Melnyk was watching, surely he would have seen what a windbag the creepy one is and have a "wtf was I thinking moment"

Cisco needs to give each member of the winning roster $20,000.00 for there efforts; the losers nothing.

The 6, 5 or 4 players that are on the ice for the team that scores the final goal of the game also recieve and additional $10,000.00 each.

Cisco spends an extra $500,000.00 to be the major sponsor of the game, but they end of with a more exciting game, which means, more fans tuning in. Their advertising audience grows and proportionally, so would their name, product and sales.

Money talks to the players and they would play for this. Most of them would donate the money to their charity of choice, but they would play for the money either way.

Have you ever bought a Cisco product? Most of what they sell is geared toward large telcos, carriers and enterprises. They have recently started branching out into consumer products (primarily since their purchase of Scientific Atlanta). But as far back as I can remember (and I've been in telecom for over 15 years) they've always advertised -- mostly in trade magazines and the like, but still.

I guess they're hoping that high-tech decision makers (IT directors and the like) are watching the game.

Remember Cisco acquired Linksys a while back... which targetted the "consumer market" for networking gear.
