  1. They did alright considering how top heavy Rugby is... I'll be at the RWC final on Saturday. Was hoping for England to be there, but I guess they suck. Will be routing for the Aussies. I literally cannot stand NZ rugby fans. Think LA Kings fans, but more smug.
  2. If anyone actually saw the goal it's classic Beleskey... some funny ricochet of a MTL player i.e. not a pure goal scorers goal.
  3. You not happy with who you got?
  4. He'll be a one year wonder. Having said that, the BOS team is terrible because it's terrible, not because of Bels.
  5. Was it the starting squad? Thought most of the preseason games started 2nd team players, no?
  6. Bels is Canadian. I don't think his ties to Cali are that strong, especially in terms of family i.e. parents, cousins, etc. We were mainly holding onto the hope he'd want to stay for his wife, who is an actress. However, I'm not sure she's quite as successful to justify leaving 3M on the table. I liked Bels, but he wasn't anywhere near my favourite player. Personally, I'm glad he declined the 4M x 4 BM offered him. Unfortunately, I have to say that I don't think he repeats. Good luck to him though. I certainly won't be booing him.
  7. Man U still need another striker. Falcao is gone and was a major flop if you ask me. That only leaves Rooney and RVP. I like Arsenal's main move so far. We've been desperate for an elite goalkeeper for years. Petr Cech is legit. I'd like another CB and a world class striker. Doubt either will happen, especially the latter, but one can hope.
  8. Not much more salary? It's 3M more!!! I don't know about you, but I've never left 3M on the table. Are you seriously telling me that if someone offered you 3M to leave ANA for BOS you wouldn't do it? I'd do that in a heartbeat and I don't even live in ANA. I have no problem with Bels leaving despite his comments about wanting to stay. I genuinely believe he wanted to stay, but got an offer too good to refuse elsewhere. What's the problem?
  9. Also, they just dumped that bum Lucic on LA and for an absolute killing
  10. 80 games? I say 60 after injuries.
  11. This. Also, people are saying that Bels got a better deal per year from ANA, but he's still going to make an extra 3M is total. If he does end up the next Clarkson, he certainly won't be offered 3M+ after his contract with us i.e. he'd have a net loss of 3M. Money is money. I don't blame Bels. Do people complaining think Bels is even worth 3.8M per? I don't. I'm glad we walked away from him. Why? He got more money and security. The salary per year would only have mattered if Bels was confident he could maintain the level of play we saw this year. He clearly isn't that confident and doesn't want to risk a drop in play i.e. less money on his next contract. If Bels drops back to his old way i.e. ~10 goals per year and good bottom 6 winger, he isn't going to demand $3M on his next contract i.e. he'd have lost money. In addition, I think the NTC was a big thing for Bels. I'm not going to boo the guy. He left us on good terms. He wanted to get paid and we couldn't facilitate that for him. Tbh, I'm glad we didn't pay him that kind of money. IMO, he's still not worth that kind of $. It was confirmed by Eric Stephens a while back. Eric Stephens ‏@icemancometh Jun 26 Ducks were prepared to give Beleskey $16M over four with $6M in first season. So they've got that to use. Shorter term winger could fit. I think security was also a big thing to Beleskey as well as money. He did alright. LET'S NOT BLAME BM GUYS OR BELS FOR WANTING CASH. THIS DEAL WAS ABSOLUTELY KOSHER AND WE KNEW WHERE WE STOOD EARLY.
  12. I'd be ok with this. No need to lose assets and Williams is a more than proven playoff performer. I don't think Silf is as effective on the LW, but I'm sure he'll adapt. Maroon - Getzlaf - Perry Silfverberg - Kesler - Williams hmmmm.... not bad!
  13. I'd say we've got to win it in the next 3 or we won't whilst Getzlaf and Perry are still around. I'm with you. Personally, I'd prefer to move Palms + for a LW solution. However, I also like the offer sheet idea.
