  1. Team Goal Celebration Issue.

    We came back in a heck of a lot of 2 goal deficit games in the beginning of last year. The "enthusiasm" decreased in proportion to our comeback and losing record. See a correlation? I don't see a goal celebration or bonding issue with this club.
  2. I hope Greener and co get the combination of youth, vets, line combos, & distribution of minutes right this year. If coaching and management make the right calls I still see us being a playoff team.
  3. Preseason GDT/PGT Canucks vs Flames Sept. 20th 6:00pm

    Every time I watch Virtanen have a good game I think to myself suck it haters
  4. My pet peeve with this team

    Everyone has pushback within themselves. Do you think the lack of pushback has something to do with a lack of confidence? Due to an adjustment period, getting acclimated to the NHL, and finding individual and team identity. Hard to accomplish in a trough
  5. Probability and facts are not synonymous.
  6. We get it.. Your an analytics guy. Sorry to Break it to you but hockey cannot be optimized by analytics. I just wanted to comment on your probability point. The thing is probabilty of draft pick does not 100% correlate to value. Value of a draft pick whether it be 1, top 3, top 5, top 10, or top 30 is based on the team selecting the player. Some teams value certain players higher than others and have strong opinions on the probability of a certain player succeeding. Although probablity has something to do with it, it's not the end all be all. An example of this is the Schnieder deal.
  7. [Signing] Panthers sign Owen Tippett

    Jaken Virtippett
  8. [Signing] Nicklas Jensen signs with Jokerit (KHL)

    Am I the only one that thinks drafting is maybe 50% of the equation? The other half is a combination of franchise development, opportunity, timing, and chemistry amongst team mates and coaching staff. There are so many factors that go in to the success of prospects. Not just the choice.
  9. [Rumour] Tanev for James Van Riemsdyk

    More like Eriksson, Subban and a pick to become stronger contenders in the east.
  10. Your joking right ? A "whipping boy" pre-requisite is being overpaid. At league minimum for one year. If he does well GMJB = god :D

  12. How we did on the Drafts

    It may be sad, but unfortunately that is the cycle we are in. It will take time and patience to get out of. Which by the way the Flames and Oilers fans also had to go through. Vegas has been dealt a pretty good hand so far. We'll see what happens on the ice

    This is a long term rebuild isnt it?
