  1. Jonathan Dahlén | C/LW

    I think Nic Dowd was more valuable than Gaunce. I think they were waiting to see if they signed Beagle before they decided on what they would do with Dowd. I expect Gaunce to clear waivers and start the year in Utica if he doesn't light it up in the preseason.
  2. Not going to happen. Not based on reality. Goalies are very different from skaters to develop. Lots of technical stuff to learn for a start. Not just about stopping the puck. Also big difference from going from being a starter to sitting on the bench as a back up. Also need lots of experience to play behind a team that gives up lots of quality scoring chances and still keep your confidence level up. I believe Dipietro will be a good NHL goalie but if he plays his first NHL game 3 seasons from now it should be considered very very early.

    While they may have a better idea of players, outlandish controversy sells and you can expect what they say to be more about that than an honest evaluation.
  4. Acording to Bob McKenzie ( Picks 5 through 8)

    Thanks. Janice started with scouts then said GMs. Not sure myself.
  5. Acording to Bob McKenzie ( Picks 5 through 8)

    But Bob doesn't give his opinion on this. He just averages out what nhl executives tell him.

    The nice thing is our scouting in Sweden is fantastic. You can bet no stone has gone un-turned about Boquist. They know everything about this kid. If he's available and they like him they will take him.
  7. Re-Signing RFAs and UFAs

    He's an excellent depth player and will get a 1 way deal at about $750 K. I f 2 players are close at camp the tie goes to the veteran. The deserving prospect gets called up as injuries happen to avoid the crap show from the press.
  8. 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    Nobody will trade the first overall. Not when it's generational.
  9. Brendan Gaunce | #50 | C/LW

    He's bigger and younger than Doud but I prefer Doud. I doubt we sign Doud but I think he's a good depth player.
  10. Brendan Gaunce | #50 | C/LW

    Granlund and Sutter can pot you 20 goals. I think you want to move them up the line up.

    I'm surprised that nobody is making more of the previous games overtime goal. It was clearly goaltender interference.
  12. [PGT] Vegas Golden Knights vs. Vancouver Canucks

    100% Agree. Jake's a player and we won't see his best for a few more years.
  13. Tyler Motte | #64 | C/W

    2 for 1 is a pipe dream. More like something of almost the same value plus something you don't want to give away. ( 2 rd pick or high end prospect)
  14. [PGT] Columbus Blue Jackets vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Jake has been playing well for quite some time. We have ourselves a player. Anyone who has watched knows this.We are a few years away from seeing his best.
  15. Petrus Palmu | RW/LW

    I saw Matthew Phillips last year and agree, he was dynamic.I will be watching his career progression with interest.
