  1. Quinn Hughes | D

    Anyone wanting to watch Quinn play against NHL quality players (Matthews, Parise and Jones to name a few), he's participating in USA Hockey's Stars and Stripes Showdown. The first period is about to begin. Livestream can be found here:
  2. Olli Juolevi | D

    So that should put an end to this story...
  3. Adam Gaudette | #88 | C

    Well, 2018 Gaudette might be better than 2018 Kesler so that's a start...
  4. Adam Gaudette | #88 | C

    He has been excellent. Plays the game like Mathew Barzal but as a defenceman.
  5. Jonathan Dahlén | C/LW

    We definitely miss him more than a lot of people would give credit for. I am curious to see if he might be able to rediscover some of his offensive game if Green tries him on a line with Dahlen and Pettersson next year. It might be a decent fit as Eriksson has proven he can score with talented line-mates and he could be a good Swedish mentor to the pair and cover the defensive gaffs that are bound to come with rookies.
  6. Jonathan Dahlén | C/LW

    Eriksson has a full no movement clause for this season meaning he can't be waived. However, I believe it becomes a limited no trade starting next year which means he could be waived then. It also means he can be exposed to Seattle whenever they have their expansion draft in the coming years.
  7. If Kovalchuk is really serious about the cup and not just the money, Benning should totally sell him the Vanek package. Give him 6-7 million on a one year deal with a limited no trade clause, then trade him at the deadline and retain half his salary. There would be more suitors who could afford him at 3-3.5 million and that way he gets his money (which, let's be honest, he's always prioritized) and his pick of the cup-contenders plus the privilege of living in one of the most beautiful cities in the world for a number of months (even easier to sell when his last two homes have been Russia and New Jersey lol). We get probably a 1st round pick and prospect. Everybody wins. It definitely won't happen, but it's nice to dream our management team would be able to pull that off.
  8. Elias Pettersson | #40 | C/RW

    Pettersson scores on a breakaway! NEW RECORD!!!!!!!!
  9. Elias Pettersson | #40 | C/RW

    He has tied Nilsson's record with his 3rd point of the game! 54 on the season with 1 and 1/2 games to go!
  10. Elias Pettersson | #40 | C/RW

    And I'm pretty sure he just got another on the powerplay!
  11. Elias Pettersson | #40 | C/RW

    He's got an assist! 1 point from tying the record!
  12. Kole Lind | RW

    With the hat-trick and primary assist tonight, Lind has taken over the league lead in primary points per game at 1.49. He now has 76 primary points and 85 points total in 50 games played. This means that 89.4% of his production is primary points - which is insane. Even more impressive when you factor in the injuries he's dealt with this season. The kid is a machine!
  13. Kole Lind | RW

    Just for comparison sake, I took a look at the deeper numbers Lind (75 pts in 46) is putting up compared to Aleksi Heponiemi (96 pts in 42 gms). The results were quite surprising. Here's how they stack up (all stats taken from Also of note: Lind is leading the whole WHL in even strength primary points (goal and first assist) per 60 minutes at 3.61. The next highest is over-aged Braydon Burke at 3.4. His stat line at even strength reads 15(G)- 27(A1) - 3(A2) - 45(P) His stat line in all situations is 29(G) - 38(A1) - 8(A2) - 75(P) He's 3rd in the league in primary points per game (1.46) in all-situations trailing only Heponiemi (1.52) and over-aged Jayden Halbgewachs (1.46). To summarize: Lind is having a freakin' amazing year. Side note to all people who love following prospects: is an amazing website if you are interested in in-depth stats for players in the CHL, USHL and AHL I don't remember how I first got there, but I was lucky to stumble on it last year, and I saw on twitter that they had added this years stats.
  14. Cole Cassels | C

    Another goal and assist tonight! That's 12 points in his last 12 games. Just to put in perspective how unexpected this breakout has been, his career high (which he set last year) was 11 points. Maybe there is hope for Cassels after all!
  15. [PGT] St. Louis Blues vs. Vancouver Canucks

    It'd be nice if the refs called one of the hooks or slashes players keep laying on Virtanen once he blows by them. If his name was McDavid he'd have gotten multiple calls tonight.
  16. Elias Pettersson | #40 | C/RW

    He just scored again haha!
  17. Petrus Palmu | RW/LW

    Just got another one! The kid is killing it! 2 goals in the final 10 minutes of a must win game to give his team a 4-2 lead!
  18. [Discussion] Jaromir Jagr Rumors 2017 FA

    Yuck. I wanted him to play another year, but in Calgary?!
  19. Do the refs not realize they've given the Knights 9 straight powerplays?
  20. Petrus Palmu | RW/LW

    Love this pick! He's got a pic of Marty St. Louis in his twitter banner. That shows he believes he can make because its been done before. Welcome Petrus!
  21. For those of you who want to be reminded of how bad it felt last year in order to mentally prepare for the lottery tonight, skip to 52:30.
  22. If McDavid's name was Aaron Rome, he's suspended 4 games for that check haha.
  23. Olli Juolevi | D

    I've got to say, I give full marks to Juolevi for sacrificing himself to draw that penalty. He put himself in a position where he's either able to shield the puck and move it safely or his opponent will (stupidly) run him from behind and likely take a penalty (especially in junior). I'm not saying I want him regularly setting himself up to be boarded but, given the high stakes involved, that was a gutsy play.
  24. Olli Juolevi | D

    Game 7 OT upcoming!
  25. Laughing at the Oilers fans complaining about that penalty. Kassian got suspended 8 games for a similar play if they'd care to remember.
