  1. Tanev Tryamkin before everyone gets mad. I love this guy, his number 1 fan. He seems through with the Canucks for now anyway. 2nd round pick next year Why would sakic go for this? I dunno but it would be pretty sweet to lose minimal for Duchene.
  2. He was a great hockey man. He hung in there in Ottawa, in my opinion he should have left earlier but it just shows his love for the game. I expect the league to show immense gratitude, specifically the Senators. RIP
  3. I always liked this guy. When the islanders traded him I really gave up hope for them in the foreseeable future. Just had a feeling, now look at where they are. It's a real mess.
  4. Mark Scheifele contract looks more and more like a steal. 6.1 AAV he puts up more point and his +/- is better and getting better every year. He can score and hold onto those points. Johansens +/- this year is a whopping +1 lol last year +10 and 13-14 +3. Every other year a -. At 8 mil either preds got ripped off or the Jets GM is a genius....
  5. Alright I'll be the Pittsburgh Penguins
  6. @hortankin I want to join... The Mighty Morphing Flower Arrangers
  7. Burke did a fantastic job getting the Sedins, no question. It took 5-6 years to really feel there potential, wow what a career. In 5-6 years Benning won't be around if he makes that kind of deal. Maybe if it were a different owner. The way the nhl is now you cant give up a 26 year old and two third rounds picks or whatever for two player lol. It would take Olli plus our 1st just to get and this is a maybe in the top two. Doesn't matter if it's a shifty draft or an excellent one. So no Benning is good in my books, he's not dumb like some might think!
  8. If this was last year and we were second last and dropped to 5th, boy I would be crushed. This year however it's a win win situation, if we ended up with pick 1 or 2 and we drafted Patrick and he turned out not necessarily a bust but injured a lot we would be worse off. Of course there is always the chance he has a great career but at 5th we will get a player with good skill and that supports the 1st line with secondary scoring. I know we have great players to fill that role but competition is never weak thing to have, now not having enough depth or competition on a team is the difference between a Stanley Cup and making it into the playoffs. We are better off because of the way the lottery went this year.
  9. If management let's Eichel do this and they fire Dan, whether he is done or not, it opens the door for Eichel or other players to hold management with their hands tied. Essentially doing what they want. They need to stick it to Eichel and make sure he and the other players know who's in charge.
  10. Agreed, Patrick will play decent (with injuries here and there) and better on every contract year until his first real big contract and a year in, Nolan will be sitting on IR making six million a year for six years (will have less of an impact than Loui in those six years) and Vancouver+CDC will be in an up roar!
  11. People underestimate green. He uses young guys in areas they did not even feel comfortable and gained confidence in themselves. When we got Baertschi he was sent to Green, Green put him out there and helped him gain confidence now look. I'm not saying Green is best, I love him in Utica (wish he would stay forever, pipe dream I know) however I feel he is underestimated on CDC. He did wonders for Virtanen this year.
  12. Vilardi over Patrick, Hischier at No.1. Patrick is lazy and we need an engine. Someone who can give us that spark when things are not going our way like Tkachuk or Vilardi or Hischier. We missed out on Tkachuk for an awesome d man. I hope we use this year's pick wisely. Here is a quote on Patrick: “We faced Patrick quite a few times this year,” said one eastern conference WHL head coach. “Nothing against the kid whatsoever, but what I saw this year and what our coaching staff saw last year are two different players. No question he’s a player, smart and everything else, but I’m not seeing what everybody talked about last year. “I saw him play against Moose Jaw one night and he was downright lazy. When he has the puck he’s fine..but when he doesn’t…I’ve expected more. What I heard from last year was that this guy was going to be a handful this year…and he hasn’t been a handful with that hockey club.” Also reading he is all about himself and not so much a team like the media says... locker room cancer maybe?
  13. Don cherry knew. He rambled about McDavid for years and years saying he was gonna be the best.
  14. The only way Gallant had a better defense is if he had the options team Canada had. Their defense last year 2015-16 was pretty solid. And Gudbranson was one of the top shut down guys in Florida. He doesn't produce points he prevents them which is almost better if you have the skill upfront.
