In Topic: We got any happy Seattlers here?

I shouldn't bash him - because the moves he made early on as GM in Boston had a big impact on the Bruins winning the Cup in 2011 (the only Boston Cup I've been alive to witness).  I'm extremely grateful for that.  But most of his moves after the 2011 season were baffling - and when he left Boston and took the job in Edmonton, with a gift wrapped Connor McDavid at his feet, he was put in a great situation which he still somehow managed to F up.  It is still mind boggling to me how Edmonton fails to have any success with all the high 1st round draft picks they have had over the past 10 seasons.  I figured at some point they would start having the same success the Pens had when they drafted Malkin and Crosby.

 

They sure do have talent, but don't seem to have a clue what to do with all of it. As a Finn, I'm just hoping they trade Jesse Puljujärvi somewhere he can have a true chance to show what he got.

Well, except Edmonton because Chiarelli has no idea what he's doing.  :)

 

Ain't that the damn truth!

A lot of expansion teams added recently. Winnipeg, Vegas and now Seattle, but at least the number is now nice and even at 32. My rooting changes yearly depending on which Finn I hope to get the ring, and right now it's Predators for Rinne. There's no other teams nearby Seattle, so that's good. Vancouver on Canadian side of the border, but other than that, Seattle is a welcome addition I think.

 

EDIT: Cross off Winnipeg. Wasn't an expansion team.. my memory.. old age and all that crap... forgot to take my meds.

Take your time. Better to have a bug free product to prevent any long term problems occuring. Besides I'm doing remarkably well in the SHL being freshly promoted. Wouldn't mind to see if I could do a one season hop straight to GHL lol. Probably not, but you know... it'll gnaw my bones for a long time afterwards with all the what if's  :rolleyes:

Welcome back! And yes, you will be able to choose from three different fonts for the name and numbers :)

 

And player contracts are being reworked as we speak.

 

Three different fonts for the jerseys? Are you for real? Okay... I'll just assign my retirement checks to come your way. I'm never freaking leaving this game... too much fluff content to twiddle around with. :D

 

And no, that wasn't a sarcastic remark. This is true joy. Go GPHM!!!
