About Me: Love the Sox/Bruins/Pats, born in Boston a million years ago, now displaced. Played and coached in a much simpler time. Still get a little too shook up when the B's or Sox lose. Oh, and soccer is not a sport.

    Posted 12/09/2014 12:50:55 EST

    I like John a lot but he has looked like a #2-3 pitcher in his career almost as often as he's looked like a clear #1.  The "1A" tag has had merit. The money is getting just stupid for one pitcher who more »

    Wonder if Ratelle and Brad Park are available?

    I'd give them Esposito AND Vadnais.  That would shake them up.

    I pledge not to mention Detroit's offense again.   (but oh watching nonstop scoring chances 3 lines deep and never being out of a game makes me so jealous.)

    OK, now I'm done.  Maybe.

    Are you actually suggesting that in last nights second period where they gave up 24 shots against, that Thomas with the lead would have meant that game was over? Seriously?
