  1. I'll take your word for it, but I've never been so disinterested in a draft. I'm sure others feel that way, because it looks like we might not have a pick until the 3rd round (although Benning has said he wants to recoup some picks). If we lose against Minnasota, interest in the draft will spike. I guess I'll start looking into some prospects from this crop.
  2. Virtanen is making strides defensively. The past couple seasons he has been in the top 3 among our forwards in takeaways. He's a threat to create turnovers and start a rush going the other way. He also has a pretty good idea of when to go for the hit, or use the stick, although I would like to see him hit more. Trading him would be a mistake. I think Hoglander will compete for a top 6 role when he's ready--maybe even play with Petterson. But, he should get one season in the AHL to learn the NA game.
  3. I hope we win the series and give up the pick this year, because I feel like this crop of prospects will be harder to evaluate due to the ramifications of COVID-19. Plus, our young guys need playoff experience.
  4. I think we should reunite Toffoli and Pearson, and put them on Horvat's wings. The 70's line, which Toffoli and Pearson made 2/3rds of, was largely responsible for the Kings' cups. Boeser can play on the first line, like he did for much of the season.
  5. I like this match up. The Wild have had issues with their penalty kill and faceoffs; we have the 4th best power play %, and 2nd best face off win %. We've never had both Boeser and Toffoli in our match ups against the Wild. Add to that, we are the younger team, and should be able to shake off the rust better. If we play Colorado in the next series, that would be a great series.
  6. There might be an asterisk, but a Stanley Cup is a Stanley Cup. Let's not act like people aren't going to watch. The Last Dance got crazy ratings. People have been starving for sports.

  8. Hughes should win because he was more important to his team. But, Makar is deserving as well.
  9. Would love for Tryamkin to come back. But, I don't know if he'll want to be a 6th or 7th defenseman. Maybe he has matured over the time he has been away, and learned more English.
