  1. Past hour
  2. Except as stated earlier it was done in secrecy seemingly to hide it from the families civil suit against Khadr
  3. Vancouver trades: 10th overall 2019 Brandon Sutter Ben Hutton Agreement to not draft at 9th from list provided by Anaheim Anaheim returns: 9th overall 2019 20th overall 2019 Rationale: Ducks have a decent prospect pipeline but their aging "stars" only have so many seasons left and with Kesler a likely LTIR candidate, they could really use a Sutter. Their D could use a Hutton. They can still get the same player at 10 they could at 9 through the agreement above. Vancouver does this as they have an emerging jam on left D and Sutter has become less relevant with the continued growth of Gaudette. The 20th pick could be as valuable as the 9th in this very flat draft.
  4. Didn't Linden hire Benning? Or was he directed to. I imagine ownership had to approve the hire. These things are close but there are distinctions.
  5. Good luck to all teams battling in the Play-offs! Especially I wish the best to former Shark Jason Spezza who is currently scoring for @Master Mind´s team. Sharks are retooling and won´t contend next season. Therefore players can be moved. Not signed (resigned) will be: Maxim Zhukov (G, VGK) Kevin Gravel (D, EDM) Nikita Popugaev (F, NJD) Available to be moved: Devan Dubnyk (G, MIN) Andy Welinski (D, ANA) Kyle Clifford (F, LAK) Dmitrij Jaskin (F, WSH) Ryan Getzlaf (F, ANA) Chandler Stephenson (F, WSH) Kevin Roy (F, ANA) Can be discussed to be moved: Jonas Brodin (D, MIN) Jamie Benn (F, DAL) Prices vary. I am looking for prospects, picks or younger players in return. I can take some cap short-term.
  6. I am starting to think you are Botchford's CDC account.
  7. Although I am often wrong with my predictions and forecasts, on every thing I DID accurately predict last season was that the Tavares signing would likely result in a zero sum game for Toronto. Adding Tavares while losing guys like JVR, Bozak, and others, would create a “robbing Peter to pay Paul” situation. Toronto will now have to deal with the monster known as the Marner situation. Do they trade Marner for picks? Or, do they hemorrhage even more depth by creating room for Marner’s new contract?
  8. Lucic = anchor. Why would you take on an anchor contract from a division rival? Why would you shore up the only position they seem incapable of filling with a strong goalie? All this trade does is weaken Vancouver and make Edmonton immediately better.
  9. in a redraft tho Petey goes no 1 for now, heisekinnen no 2, hirschier 3, Makar 4
  10. I'm fine with trading Marky if he can get us a top 10 pick as well. I don't like goalie drama. Identify your starting goalie and instil confidence in him. If you have two great goalies, pick one and trade one. Don't let what happened with Luongo ever happen again.
  11. It was evident that Makar had the skill to possibly be the best player in the draft and still can be (EP wont let that happen though). Patrick played his way out of number 1 and hischier made it hard not to pick.
  12. Caps are willing to trade Vrana. Still think he has a lot more to give, so would be looking for a similar player not meeting expectations.
  13. yea, well, I did say arguably. SJ has some amazing players. You could make the same case for Brent Burns. Karlsson was truly inspirational in the 2017 playoffs and I don't believe he is going to be regressing that hard any time soon. He has been playing hurt all season and still looks amazing. I haven't seen McDavid put the Oilers on his back like Karlsson did with Ottawa in 2017. Plus Dmen soak up way more time than forwards do.
  14. Exactly what the Capitals were missing in their series against the Canes.
  15. JB dropped the hint he had Makar ahead of petey
  16. If I end up losing solely due to OTL points, after defending them so much... the horror. I'll take more nights like tonight though
  17. I completely agree......which is why this Karlsson debate is so interesting to me. On the one hand, it’s been proven that teams with cost controlled elite talent + depth (ie the old Chicago and LA models) can win multiple cups. As has been pointed out however, those old models might be going the way to the dinosaur due to the cap increase.....and that in the future (and even present), it’s pretty much a pipe dream to try and get elite talent to “buy in” by taking a discount of some kind. As much as we might want someone like Elias Pettersson to sign for 8.5-9 million dollars when the time comes (instead of 10.5-11), is it a realistic wish? I’m not so sure.
  18. It was in fact a done deal, the courts had sided with him that the government ignored his rights and that his rights as a Canadian were indeed impugned by the allowance of the government forcing him to rot without representation in a prison without trial. The supreme courts found his rights were in fact violated. All that was left was the settlement of which he was due to be awarded far mroe but would have to fight for it. He was initially granted a win when he was asking for almost $20 million but amended that and almost doubled what he was asking for Again, a world where ALL the information is literally available by simply typing and people choose to ignore it https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/omar-khadr-settlement-analysis-aaron-wherry-1.4189472 https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/omar-khadr-legal-analysis-aaron-wherry-1.4199409 https://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/in-the-court-of-public-opinion-canadians-say-trudeau-chose-wrong-on-khadr-settlement/article35651376/ https://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2014/10/23/omar_khadr_wins_right_expand_lawsuit_against_ottawa.html https://www.lawnow.org/omar-khadr-2/ https://ipolitics.ca/2017/07/11/whos-to-blame-for-the-khadr-payout-stephen-harper-mostly/ There's little way to argue it. The only way he loses that fight is the court of public opinion. We all know what they say about opinions though right? So before you start claiming I wasn't being factual, try reading the actual facts as they stand. They are as I stated. Opinions mean nothing. In some people's opinion the Leafs are still Canada's team and in others Calgary got robbed. Both would be wrong and not worth listening too, much like this. Now back to the matter at hand. BIden would absolutely beat trump, but he is the potential worst case candidate because he represents the establishment as it is/was and that effectively means no change for the people again.
  19. To be fair Makar was very high on most lists, alot of people had him as the number 1 D in the whole draft.
  20. So because he didnt hire one of the good ol boys who keep getting recycled around the league, and he hired new talent, that makes him a controlling owner? You serious?
  21. Dopey nux4lyfe decided to make another banal post about a presidential candidate insinuating that he’s a pedophile, when according to all reports he's been inappropriate with women, all the while not mentioning that his lord and savior, Dotard J. Dumbf has been accused of worse.
