Nice interviews with Brandon Rogers and Tom Lynn

First taste of Joe O'Donnell, the new voice of the Aeros. Rogers is smart and well-spoken. Hopefully he's back taking contact pretty soon. We'll need him on the blue line. He sounds so captainy...

Interesting that he mentioned Adrian Foster having a broken foot at the end of the season. I guess that's where he disappeared to. Of course, the irony that he missed the trip to Europe with Brandon and then ended up playing there...

Also, a good interview with Tom Lynn (who, I realize now, I saw several times on Friday and if I'd known, I'd have cornered him and tried to get some Gaby scoop). Also, I have to say, he's not smarmy looking in person like he is in his official Wild photo. They should reshoot him.

Anyway, nice job, Joe!

Off to the Texans game today. Ugh.

I see you jeep mentioning Gabby. Whats going on there? Are they trying to trade him? I remember hearing something about that toward the end of last season.

They're trying to sign him but he wants Ovechkin money and he's no f'king Ovechkin, except he is really important to this club since we can't get any other high flying offensive superstars to come here. They're offering in the 8.5-9M range but presumably he wants 10, which is crazy. Talks have basically stalled out and Riser says he's gonna trade earlier in the season than later if a deal doesn't get done.

Of course, he'll be a free agent on July 1, so whoever signs him can't possibly give us what he's worth to us. It's a difficult situation.

Oh, that sucks. Gabby is a good player and would be a valuable member to any team, but not worth that kind of money. Maybe he wants to test FA?

If it wasn't for him, I think we'd beat the Wild more often. :)

Yeah, if it weren't for him everybody would beat the Wild more often. :) He says he wants a deal done but his agent, I guess, feels like he can squeeze more out of the Wild. Agents suck.
