I disagree, Torts just sidestepped the question like an idiot. Brooks clearly asked, in a series or anytime, and he responded "anytime."

You don't realize what he's doing, do you? He's taking the attention away from his team and transposing it onto him. The talk in Washington last night wasn't "the Rangers lost game 1", it was "Torts got into it with Brooks again". Obviously in the end it didn't make a difference with the Caps winning but the idiot is Brooks, for allowing himself to be drawn into an argument with Torts over literally nothing.

Because what Eric Belanger says matters right? lol. I find it funny, its like he's crying for attention with all those quotes.

“The fans have been talking about it a bit more every day, and the one sure thing is that we want NHL players and not Eric Belanger,” said a loyal Jets fan. “Personally, and I won't name any names, but I've chatted with fans of teams that have had him (Belanger) and don't want him back. There are reasons why Belanger wasn't working out for any team he ever played for, I don't see how that would have changed.”

Belanger's actually a great depth player and team guy, but I can understand Jets fans being upset lol. To be fair, their city sucks balls.

Quote:

GLENDALE, ARIZ. - Winnipeg isn't even back in the NHL, yet, but it already has a potential free agent problem.

Phoenix Coyotes goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov, a soon-to-be free agent who was probably the team's most valuable player the last two seasons, says he'd rather go back to Russia than play in Winnipeg.

"You don't want to go to Winnipeg, right?" Bryzgalov said after the Coyotes lost to Detroit, Wednesday night. "Not many people live there, not many Russian people there. Plus it's cold. There's no excitement except the hockey. No park, no entertaining for the families, for the kids. It's going to be tough life for your family."

The 30-year-old Russian's knowledge of Winnipeg comes from a visit or two when he was with Cincinnati in the AHL.

"I've been there for just once, maybe twice, when I play in minors. It was really cold," Bryzgalov said. "I used the tunnels between the buildings to get to the arena. Because it was minus 40-something. Real cold."

And if he's going to put up with that, he'd rather be back home.

So if the Coyotes move to Winnipeg, Bryzgalov says chances are he wouldn't listen to a contract offer from the new owners.

"Probably not. I better go to somewhere in Russia, KHL, to be honest. Because KHL is Russian people, it's family, friends. Even as a cold place, I can speak to people in Russian language."

A six-year NHL vet who began his career in Anaheim, Bryzgalov has been the backbone of a blue-collar Coyotes team that made the playoffs each of the last two seasons.

He was a second-team NHL all-star a year ago, when he posted a 42-20-6 record and 2.29 goals against average.

This season he was 36-20-10, with a 2.48 GAA.

Coyotes captain Shane Doan Wednesday called him the league's most valuable player.

But Bryzgalov had a terrible first-round playoff series against the Red Wings, allowing 17 goals in the four-game sweep, including Wednesday's winner, a softie from the corner by Detroit's Danny Cleary that broke a 3-3 tie late in the third period.

"Goalies have it two ways: to be a hero, to be a goat," Bryzgalov said. "I'm a goat."

He was also in a difficult situation this season, unable to negotiate a new contract because the Coyotes didn't have a real owner.

"I didn't care about the contract the whole year long," he said. "I not even put it in my mind. I can find a job. It's tough to live with unknown situation. But nothing can do.

"I hope team's going to stay. It's such a nice area, and such nice place to play hockey."

Why are you suggesting something that he said himself he would do?

Honestly, watching Jets fans get all uppity about this is pretty lulz.

Bryzgalov doesn't want to go to Winnipeg because, wait for it....there are no parks.

That's pretty much a gamebreaker. Totally understandable.

HAHAH, your going to hate me. But I added Marchand to my TCL pool. And I also traded away for him in my NHL 2011 Be a GM. I freakin love him. hahahahh. sorry Prax. You can" pink slip" me for that.

He's a good player, but he's a hypocrite and a jackass. The guy has no class, and he's a man-child. He likely chirps on the ice just as much as anyone else, then he turns around to the media and whines about the Habs starting everything and bitching about Subban and everything? Subban might be a jackass on the ice but he's a class act when it comes to dealing with the media, and he knows how to handle his own success. It's clearly gone to his head, for Marchand, and if anyone needs to be put in his place it's him.

Very good player, but yeah he's got some growing up to do. That can be said of quite a few Bruins players actually.

My Leafs may not be a playoff team this year, but at least they have respect. I mean, hell, how else would Brett Lebda ever get a shift?

lmao. I'll tell you, all this shit with the Bruins this year has really made me realize I actually do have some respect for the Leafs and Flyers. Flyers fans (and Philly fans in general) can be assholes but there are a lot of good ones. Leafs fans for the most part just care about their team. The Bruins and their fans though... Enemy number one.
