  1. My point was he is a top 4 dman signed longer term even if he is a poor top 4 dman Seattle might take a chance on him as he is young and could turn it around and they could afford to do that as an expansion team.
  2. I did not like Mathesons play at all and this has nothing do with bias. I was thinking he was a possible Seattle pick-up. Florida dodged a bullet here.
  3. If Virtanen could get us Carlo that trade would have been done immediately.
  4. If he isn't signing with St.Louis it's because he wants a NMC. He has made it very clear he wants stability. St.Louis has given out way too many NMC/NTC and they are probably thinking they should stop handing them out.
  5. Trying to bring a winning culture to Florida, good luck.
  6. The NHL Centreice is a joke and streaming is getting far easier to find and the quality is a+ unlike it used to be when streams would be low quality and frequently crash. When you try to nickel and dime your fans they will look elsewhere.
  7. If a doctor is prescribing a medication for a year of use when it's only approved for 5 days of use then that doctor should lose their license. That would fix the issue immediately.
  8. I'd rather use any picks or prospects to pick up a dman in a trade than use them to lose Eriksson. The cap space isn't really an issue especially if Markstrom walks.
  9. I'd rather keep assets than give them away to get rid of Eriksson if the cost is high. Not a big deal a lot of teams deal with internal caps. We can survive a few years more of Eriksson. Or just send him to the minors let him ride a bus for a few years.
  10. The voting wasn't close. It wasn't some narrow victory for Makar. He had more than double the first place votes than Hughes. That isn't close. If Makar doesn't get injured when he was on a complete tear it would have been an even wider margin.
  11. Until Jim knows who he can get rid of I don't think you're going to see anyone signed unless someone came in really cheap. Also, I think it depends on if he can snag a young dman in a trade.
  12. Toronto does not have an Elder or Myers. Muzzin is more like Tanev. So for you to be correct we'd have to lose Edler and Myers and then we'd be like Toronto's D.
  13. Offensively Makar was better. Defensively Makar was better. Physically Makar was better. Makar is an all around player and the only chance Quinn had was to outscore him which he really didn't do when you look at the games played. Hughes had a great year but Makar was better. The only reason this was as close as it was is because of Makars injury.
  14. I don't think so. The Liberals won the last election.. and the NDP has just done something incredibly stupid those votes that shifted to them aren't going to go green but likely back to Liberal. The Liberals aren't going to lose votes here.. and they only need one more seat to win a majority..I have no idea how the NDP think they are going to come out of this with more votes..
  15. It's cause there is no way the democrats would allow Bernie Sanders to be president. They were cocky last election and even cockier now and really I think they would get away with it if they chose not to debate Trump but omg 3 debates? I have no idea how Biden will survive those I think if he has a remotely good first debate that should be it. I think they honestly lose the election on the debates.
  16. For all you people thinking the NDP are coming out of this with a majority... The Liberals after their huge scandal won the last election.. and now with this stupid election call there's a ton of people who are appalled at this who voted NDP and Andrew Weaver retired so the Green Party does not look nearly as good as it did last election.. The Liberals are going to mop the floor with the NDP. Makes absolutely no sense for the NDP to do this.
  17. Nice way to hand the Liberals a majority. This will be an easy Liberal win. Such a stupid thing to do.
  18. He definitely was not thriving. I am not sure what Seth Jones you were watching but it wasn't the one that was playing on Nashville. If you compare the early years of Seth to the early years of Ekblad.. Ekblad was a lot better. Obviously, Ekblad got more playing time but to say oh Jones had this potential all along when he hadn't shown it at all in Nashville is pretty naive. There are tons of players that have tons of potential that never live up to it. Seth is one of the few that has.
  19. Jone's wasn't playing anywhere near Ekblad's level. If you use hindsight yea Jones is the much better dman but at the time Jones was just a struggling young top 4 dman. Nashville was deep at D and needed a top line centre and I think when all they had offer for Johansen was Jones they jumped at it. It was an incredibly risky trade for Columbus. Not only that but Johansen was a centre and a proven number 1 centre and it works against anyone trying to say Boeser for Ekblad is a good comparable... Actually says the opposite for a more proven top 2 dman.
  20. The Burns trade is the majority of what the trade offers for Ekblad are.. Boeser + Juolevi + 1st is pretty damn close to Burns trade. You're trying to offload a pretty worthless prospect which San Jose did not do. With Joulevi's injuries and age you can't compare him to a top 5 pick anymore.
  21. People who think that Seth Jones had proven more than Ekblad when he was traded.. What are you on? Jone's had not proven anything in his NHL career when he was traded. He was expected to become a number 1 but was nowhere near that when he was traded, he was not even a number 2 Dman. He was literally a struggling 3/4 guy. Ekblad has proven way more and has shown he is a clear number 2 guy and quite possibly a solid number 1 in a few years.
  22. Actually no. The GM said they would listen to offers on Ekblad but likely say no to them all. He has also been quoted saying the owners haven't told him to cut costs but to act like this is a new franchise and do what he thinks is best to make them grow. Barkov is the only untouchable. There is no indication at all that Ekblad is available for economical reasons. The indication is clearly if someone offers up something really good that he can't say no to he will be traded. Some pretty mediocre draft picks is not going to get it done. I don't even think Boeser, Juolevi and 1st will get it done but I see that as a fair trade. I think it would likely cost another pick/prospect.
  23. How do you guys come up with these trade proposals and convince yourself that is a reasonable trade? There is no way that trade would ever happen. You'd have to add Boeser to make it an actual reasonable trade price. You aren't going to snag a 24 year old number 1-2 dman for a few draft picks..
