He then proceeded to manhandle noted tough competitor KB3 in the corners during that horrendous first round matchup 2 years ago. But I believe he morphed into 19-year old Sam Bennett shortly before the start of the series.

Patrick Kane could only do 1 rep on the bench press during the 2007 draft combine. I heard he turned out okay.

Patrick Roy resigns from the Avs coaching job and VP of hockey operations:

Roy resigns from Avalanche organization - Article - TSN

Is St. Patrick going to start yelling at junior league players on the bench in Quebec?

Maybe he will pull goalies early in the third period when his team is losing by a few goals in the Quebec junior league.

It's not that bad of a trade, because we received defenseman Jyrki Jokipakka, forward prospect Brett Pollock, and a conditional second-round pick in the 2016 NHL Draft out of it.

I wonder does the GM have to get approval from the owner to actually make trades or does the owner have to sign off on them?

Owner always has to sign off on them cause they're the ones footing the bill. That's why you'll sometimes hear of trades being nixed at the last minute.

Even aqualini must have understood that getting SOMTHING would be better than nothing at that point.

Aquilini would have rather hung onto Hamhuis than lose him to his rival. He's petty like that. The funny thing is that Gaglardi got him in the end without giving up anything. That is a big F-U

Vrbata back with the Coyotes on a 1 year deal for $1 million base salary + bonuses. Good value signing by Arizona IMO

I do think that we would've resigned Hamhuis if we didn't get gudbranson. No space cap wise and roster for Hamhuis too.

Vrbata I feel is worth more than that, just because of the overall and consistent player that he is
