The Damien Two Step~Cup Envy!

Worst D in the league remember folks…..

“the heat should be on GM Cliff Fletcher to make sure the same opportunity isn’t missed with Kaberle.”

Damien comparing Kaberle to Sundin…Interesting to say the least…

“Along with Kaberle and Kubina, Alexei Ponikarovsky, Jason Blake, Jeff Finger and Vesa Toskala all could potentially be dealt. You know, for something more than nothing, the return for excising Darcy Tucker and Andrew Raycroft from the roster.”

So let’s see the worst d in the league has not one, not two but 3 defencemen that other teams will want, doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me.

I made the argument a few weeks ago that very few of the current Buds would be around when this team turns the corner, so I am on board with his assessment today that Cliff should move every asset possible today. Quite the 2-step by sir Damien today….

Here is an awesome photo of my brother-in law drinking from Lord Stanley’s Cup, enjoy it…He did!

As I said over at PPP, I agree with Damien today. A rebuilding team needs to hit a home run or two at the deadline. We struck out last year, so this year’s deadline is the biggest day of our season.

That said, it wouldn’t be Cox without at least one head-scratcher:

“Having failed to realize the mother lode that could have been available for Sundin, mostly because he (Fletcher) couldn’t be persuaded to waive the no-trade provisions in his contract…”

“Mostly”? How about “entirely”? Fletcher apparently had a done deal with the Habs and Sundin said no. Yet Cox can’t bring himself to let Cliff off the hook, so now the no-trade is just “mostly” to blame.

Mister Cox is at it again it would seem.

States his usual negative commentary about how inept our team is; in this case specifically of having the worst defence in the league. Then backtracks a couple posts later saying all of a sudden we are overstocked on capable defencemen that are now worthy of tradebait. So what the hell happened in between those two pasts Damien? All of a sudden we went from worst D in the league to one that can potentially afford us picks and prospects due their value on the market?

Can we all kindly refer to Damien Cox from this point on as TwoFace, just like the character from the Batman comics?

Or maybe AssClown. I like that one better actually.. 🙂
