Ho Hum, Part 382


Maxim Afinogenov is not close to re-signing with the Thrashers, according to his agent.

Don Meehan said Monday that after reviewing the one-year contract offer made by the Thrashers several weeks ago, he and Afinogenov “don’t agree at this point in time” with the terms offered by the team.
“Where we go from here, I’m not sure,” Meehan said.

No surprise, of course. As you were, then! So who do you like today, Japan or Cameroon?

Dudley said we have offered every UFA a contract in line with what the organization is willing to pay.

Yikes. So that means no Maxie Finns. Probably no Kubina. Even though we have depth at D, I considered Kubina to be a must signing. Too bad it doesn't look like it will happen. Ever notice how all the really good teams have MORE depth at D than they really need? Interesting. Hedberg? Putting all human feelings aside and considering the other options that are out there, it's probably in our best interest to replace him. Last year is as good as it's going to get for our dear Moose, I'd say.

Dudley scares me. Everyone is all on his bandwagon because he's new and the Blackhawks thing and all that. I had my reservations about him because of his past moves as a GM (never really been a fan), and so far he has done nothing to put me at ease. The draft/coaching search/free agency will be interesting.

Hopefully I'll be wrong about him.

I will not like you until I am able to use you in the "Refer a Friend" program with DirecTV. I save $100, you save $100... BFF's!!!

PS - the word verification for this comment is: fistin

Remember when that news lady said the Obama's have many ways of showing their love for one another and rattled off a few of them before ending saying, "even fisting"... ah, those were the good ole days.
