  1. Brock Boeser named Rookie of the Month for November

    If by butterflies you mean my pants getting tighter, then yes.

    Seriously what is it with our prospects and health/injury issues....
  3. Absolutely. The return has to be worth it otherwise there's no point. We hold the cards here and he should command a more than fair value. You don't just move him so we can be even more terrible and potentially pick higher in the next draft. We all know that is no guarantee.
  4. I'm not sure this is the word i'd use.... we were 29/30 last year with very little, if any, help coming this year. I'd argue we are worse off than last year. I understand your point in icing a competitive team to create a culture of winning but if the opportunity presents itself to move a player (ie Tanev) to bring us pieces to be competitive in the future, it needs to be considered. I'm not saying move Tanev at any cost so we can tank.... just saying if there's a deal there to make us better long term, it should be considered. We will be bad regardless of Tanev being here.
  5. For me its Vilardi, Glass, Mittelstadt, Makar in that order. I see Makar having a similar impact to Shattenkirk - great player who will get his points but not necessarily a guy you build around. Vilardi is a beast and Glass has the work ethic to make him an effective player for a long time. Wouldn't be mad at either.

    Boeser seems to have been injured on and off this year.... i'd rather him recover and focus on a big summer of training and come to camp ready to earn a spot.
  8. I love how some ppl actually think we could land Bowey for Hansen. Caps already gave away Forsberg for Erat, hard to see them make another terrible move like this in such a short period of time. Not to mention the trade value isn't even close.

    It's hockey day and i'm a couple beers in already so thought i'd chime in on OJ. Like many others, i wanted Tkachuk at the draft as I thought he was a slam dunk and was exactly what this team lacked and has been lacking for years..... a gritty top 6 fwd who can piss off the other team and fill the net. Although OJ wasn't the guy I would've gone with, there's a lot to like about the kid. I think if you are taking a D high in the draft, they have to think the game well above all else... which is OJ's #1 strength. The offence and physicality can come with maturity but if you don't have that high IQ to start with, you won't know how to use those tools to your best potential. He's a competitor and a proven winner, and with a lot of hard work down the road, there's a great chance for this kid to be our #1 for years. We all see what Tkachuk is doing now and want that instant gratification, but I hope we stay patient with him and allow him to grow into the player he can be.

    Awesome, thanks for the update.

    Is he back from injury?

    These are the questions we should all be asking ourselves.
  13. RAPTORS/WARRIORS - Presale

    anybody got a link to the presale site?
  14. That's why they play the games.... to turn hypotheticals into actuality. Every team has it's own "ifs"..... I'm not so sure we have more question marks than any other team going into the season. Chicago will be good "if" Kane can maintain production.....
