Gonna put any $ where all that nasty air is coming from? You definitely have more of a hate-on that most normal newbies
...what's your story? You been hanging around with Pucks for a few days?
Easy there big fella, don't take that too hard now, we all know how sensitive you can be
I wish you could expound a little more about why you think they will be so bad and how they are so talentless. We have the CHL rookie of the year, "backed up" by a very strong member of the Slovakian junior team. There is wealth (at least respectively in comparison to the past 5 years) of talent in the 16 and 17 year old range and it seems virtuall all of them took the off-season very seriously in terms of physical development. It appears Regier has decided to really apply himself so far this year and if he lives up to anywhere close to his earlier expectations, we will have a goody. The walk ons this year, as an entire group, are second to none in the history of this franchise IMHO ane they will be removing some of the vets from their positions this season. While I haven't seen a "Hamhuis" in this group there are a number of "hidden gems" that, again, seem very interested in making this team and playing hard for it. It appears Kliper has done an excellent job so far in finding talent AND getting it to commit to playing HARD here...do we finally have a scout that is capable of drafting the character necessary to truly develop the skills that are present in most kids this age? Now THAT will be a treat to see develop if that trend continues. I believe our tending is going to be the best it has been since the Bowles/Cyr year, and the team around them, though very young, will be better coached and could show us some very pleasant surprises come the "Real Season"...especially in a pretty weak BC Division this year.
