Really hoping Gaunce has a better showing during camp... he's been pretty lackluster lately

Didn't watch today's game but I heard he played better

Gaunce still needs to improve his skating by quite a bit IMO before he can play at the NHL level

but anyhow expected Tavares named captain of dem Isles

2 assists in 3 games in mostly a defensive roll, dominated face-off circle. "played bad"
horvat 1 goal in 3 games, "cant wait for him to be a superstar". sure he was flashy but the way people are going at guance, you could call horvat, raymond2.0

the thing you should be looking at is the fact he admitted to having a horrible rookie camp, yet still produced points, played well defensively and was a plus player. the fact he still contributes while playing bad is a good thing. as for footspeed, tavares and many other notables have had bad foot speed when they entered the league. no they didnt become speed demons, but improved enough through off season training so they could play their game at the nhl level.

yet Gaunce always gets choked at the media when they mention his skating as a weak point

there's a reason its being addressed and he's gonna learn that at camp

anyhow the aquaman settles his divorce his wife before the court hearing

Not sure what season you were watching. He started off strong, when other players weren't up to speed/strength, and he drove to the net maybe because defenders were afraid to break him again. All of that wore off as the season progressed while competition became stronger and he finished horribly IMO. He stopped getting into the middle and did his classic skate down the boards, stop and button hook, and even started falling more too lol. Not so horribly to be deserving of a PTO mind you, I wonder if he's unwilling to take a paycut and sign for less than he made last year. You have to think SOMEteam must be willing to pay 1-1.5M just for the upside that he can bring. And he's a decent defensive player too

The Maple Leafs and restricted free agent forward Nazem Kadri have reached an agreement on a new two-year contract: Kadri, Maple Leafs agree to two-year deal | The Score

Listened to it this morning and they had one of the guys from Tragically Hip on. They were talking music for the first 5 mins I heard then switched to sports and the Hip guy had nothing to really offer.

I think my brother said it best, "I tune into 1040 to listen to expert, in-depth analysis of sports. Not music and other BS. If i wanted to do that, I'd listen to a rock station."

IMO, its Bro Jake flexing his rock and roll muscle thinking, "Look what I bring to the show".. when overall its not what the committed fanbase wants. Hopefully it improves, or I see this experiment being short lived.

Thats a good deal for the Leafs at a 2.9Mil Cap hit. I was afraid Kadri was gonna look for Landeskog type money. This deal makes the Avalanche GM look like an idiot

Well lets look at it this way...

Yesterday was Week1 of Monday Night Football, RG3 returns, and what an awesome game that was between the Eagles and the Redskins.

Vancouver Canadians won the NWL title 3 times in a row to complete the 3peat

We had an awesome USOpen Final between Joker and Nadal.

Lions brought back Buck Pierce.

So it was a pretty eventful Monday Night for sports and they ramble with the bassist from The Tragically Hip, don't get me wrong, I like the hip, but this is sports radio. No one gives a shit about Pratt's Leather pants.

Maybe things will change when Hockey starts...or whenever Pratt realizes that Bro Jake is terrible at the job and at least try to lead... because you know, at least Pratt is a Sports Radio host

I'm gonna assume that Kadri deal had to be 100% affected/compared/related to the MoJo deal

Now CoHo has to settle for a semi-bridge contract

You hit the nail on the head, darthchilli.

I've tuned in each morning of the new show as usual during my morning commute. I'd normally listen to 1040 for 75% of my drive, and 980 for news for 25%. I've already found I've reversed my % and am listening to 980 more.

Was it Monday they had Ozzy Osbourne on, or someone doing an impression? It was horrible. I turned it off as soon as Pratt's #1 question was "Do you remember Gretzky from the 80s? I've heard you don't remember alot of the 80s" or something like that.

Come on. It's been a huge few days for sports as mentioned, and we have to listen to Ozzy freakin' Osbourne ramble on about his drug habit ??

Epic fail thus far in my opinion.

I'm hoping Derek Stepan signs soon or gets an offer sheet from the Islanders. Traded for him in my keeper league to fill my center spot.
