    Nice to see you active, Quisp. Hope all is well with you and yours…and yes, “dealing Dustin” is a screen play I’m currently working on.

    Miss ya’ Quisp.

    Wouldn’t cry much if the half wall door slammed Brown or Richards in the ass on the way out.

      funny. when browns extension kicks in it’s too high a cap hit. But at least he’s always shown passion in his play. this season i think he’s lost his confidence.richards at 5×5 has been way better [less turnovers], don’t know if it limits his creativity, but his pp production is down. Get the pp up and i would be totally fine with him, but i believe he’s on the 2nd unit now. Passion-wise, you watch brown and doan and you wonder how richards was ever a captain…

    I see what you’re doing here. The last time trade rumors started to circulate about Brownie, his game totally took off…

    Brown (and Stoll) for some top shelf talent – might be good timing. Gagner? I feel Clifford’s 4th line play will prove more valuable in the playoffs.

    Quisp, did you have any suspicions regarding Brownie, when Lombardi signed him to that contract last year?
    I can’t see DL keeping him around with that cap hit… I could be very wrong…

    This post, over a year old, suddenly seems relevant again.

    Over/Under on Brown seeing another two years as a King?
