Looks like Labatts was right..MOD,Troll Alert,Dev Starr...were the only ones trolling...
Looks like his predictions were right to..
Now its early in the season...but if you go back and read his statements it wasnt about Columbus or their fans it was more about paying for a guy who just wasnt worth it....
I dont see those idiots on this site anymore so that good!!!
Good Luck Columbus

DEV

no offense but they're all right man !!!

all the guy was saying was it isn't always wise to pick up the other teams UNPROVEN and CASTAWAY'd
players.

Not ONLY was he right, but further to that, the way the Habs defense has been running by comittee
due to other injuries as well as Markovs that at time Markov is due to come back, middle next month,
he 100% would have been eventually been paired in certain situations with Wisneiski...PERIOD...IT'S JUST A FACT...IT WOULD HAVE EVENTUALLY HAPPENED ANYWAYS SO THE ENTIRE ARGUMENT IS MOOT!!!

AND THAT ASIDE FROM THE FACT THAT THE CONTRACT HE SIGNED IS REDICULOUS AND COMPLETELY OUT OF WHACK WITH WHAT THAT GUY BRINGS TO THE TABLE !!!

PERSONALLY, I LOVE THE BLUE JACKETS AS A FAN OF HOCKEY.

PERSONALLY I WOULD GIVE WISNEISKI, MY LEFT NUT, AND SEVERAL OTHER HABS JUST TO HAVE A GUY WITH THE KIND OF TALENT AND GUTS AND BALLS LIKE RICK NASH HAS ON OUR TEAM UP NORTH OVER HERE.

ADD HIM AND GUY LIKE CLAUDE GIROUX AND SUDDENLY THE HABS WOULD HAVE SOMETHING THEY HAVEN'T HAD IN YEARS...2 GUYS WHO DON'T BACK DOWN FROM ANYBODY, 2 GUYS WHO CAN CARRY A TEAM ALL BUY THEMSELVES ON THEIR OWN SHOULDERS.

DESPITE THE CONTRACT I CANNOT BLAME THE JACKETS GM FOR WHAT HE DID, HE IDENTIFIED A HOLE ON HIS DEFENSE AND SEES WISNEISKI AS THE FILLER, THE SOLUTION, AND IMO THERE REALY ISN'T ANYTHING WRONG WIHT THAT....SOMETIMES ALL A PLAYER NEEDS IS FOR ONE GM OR COACH TO HAVE FAITH IN HIM AND IT CAN MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD IN HIS ON ICE PERFOMRANCE.

WITH CARTER GONE FOR A FEW WEEEKS, IT TUNRNS OUT NOW SHOREING UP THE DEFENSE WAS THE RIGHT THING FOR THE JACKETS TO DO.

AS WELL, WHO'S TO SAY HE DOESN'T TURN HIMSELF INTO A SUPERSTAR DEFENSMAN NOW THAT HE CAN HAVE SOME PIECE OF MIIND, AS PLAYIONG IN THE MTL ORGANIZATION IS ALOT MORE COMPLICATED THAN PLAYING ANYWHERE ELSE IN HOCKEY.

MY POINT IS, SOMETIMES A GOOD GM WOILL ROLL THE DICE ONA PLAYER AND SOMETIMES HE'LL BE WRONG AND SOMETIMES HE'LL BE RIGHT,

IN THE CASE OF WISNEISKI IT WOULD BE WISE TO GIVE THE GUY SOME TIME TO SHOW US WHAT HE CAN DO NOW THAT ALL THE BAGGAGE HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM HIS STINT WITH THE HABS, ONE IN WHICH THE GM'S HERE DID NOT SEE ENOUGH IN HIM TO KEEP HIM...

WHICH QUITE FRANKLY I COMPLETELY DISSAGREED WITH.

THE GUY IMO WAS/IS 50 TIMES BETTER THAN SPACEK OR GILL OR DIAZ OR ANYONE ELSE RIGHT NOW SAVE SUBBAN, WHOS HAVING HIS OWN PROBLEMS WITH CONSISTENCY RIGHT NOW.

THE HABS MGMT IS A CLUSTER FUCK RIHGT NOW AND HAS A MAJOR LONG TIME HISTORY OF DESTROYING PLAYERS CAREERS BY PLAYING NUMBERS GAMES WIHT THEM OR STRANGLING THEM WITH A SET OF DEFENSIVE RESPONSIBILITIES WHICH UNDERMAIN ANY OFFENSE TALENT THAT PLAYER MIGHT HAVE AND CAUSE MAJOR PROBLEMS FOR THE TEAM WHEN IT COMES TO SPECIAL TEAMS PRODUCTION NUMBERS.

I MAY NOT AGREE WITH THE TERMS OF HIS CONTRACT BUT I DO THINK WISNEIWESKI HAS AN AWESOME OPPORTUNITY NOW TO DEVELOP INTO A SOLID CONSISTENMT ESSENTIAL BLUELINER ON THE JACKETS SQUAD, SOMETHING HE MORE THAN LIKELY WOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN AFFORDED IN MTL.

YOU HAVE TO GIVE CREDIT
[OR NOT IF YOU CHOOSE}TO THE JACKETS GM BECAUSE HE HAD THE VISION TO REKOGNIZE THE POTENTIAL IN WISNEIWSKI WHEN MARTIN AND GAINEY HAD OBVIOUSLY GIVEN UP ON THE GUY FOR NO REAL REASON THAT I CAN SEE OTHER THEN TOO MANY BODIES.

A DECISION IMO THAT WAS BASELESS AND A CLEAR SIGN THE HABS MGMT DOES NOT UNDERSTAND HOW TO EVALUATE TALENT PROPERLY. AND IN RETROSPECT RIGHT NOW, WITH TRHE BAS DEFENSIVE WOES...I BET MY BOTTOM DOLLAR THEY BOTH WISH THEY DIDN'T DO WHAT THEY DID.

CAN WE ALL NOT AGREE TO DISAGREE ON THIS ONE AND LET GO OF THE PETTY INSULTS AND HOSITILITIES FOR THE SAKE OF GOOD OLD FASHONED "COFFEE-HOCKETY-TALK "???

Thanks for the support spartacus.....Like I said I hope that conversatio is over....
I dont think I was clear enough on my point and it was blown out of porportion....then the troll shit really pissed me off etc etc.

And you know I wished Montreal kept him too....its just that he wasnt proven to be a 5.5 million dollar player.
And also sometimes these types of players play well because of their partner. Once you leave that partner...you dont always get the groove back..
I like the city of columbus..I have been there twice and will be back and maybe go to a game.
Thanks
