  1. [PTO] Simon Després with Canadiens

    I remember hearing that in a potential Kesler trade in 2014, the Penguins offered the Canucks Sutter, Despres, and a first. Canucks apparently said no because they wanted Pouliot instead of Despres. Fast forward 4 years and we have Brandon Sutter, we have Derrick Pouliot, Despres is going to Montreal on a tryout after leaving to play in the KHL, and Kesler may well have played his last NHL game... Wow, do things change quickly in the hockey world or what?!
  2. Quinn Hughes | D

    He was definitely used in a sheltered role and wasn't relied on much defensively. However, I remember one particular play against Canada when it looked like Horvat was on a clear breakaway. Hughes used his speed to easily catch Horvat and then bumped him, stole the puck, and immediately transitioned the puck into the offensive zone. It was that play that sold me on Hughes as the guy I wanted at 7 haha!
  3. [GDT] 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    Good catch on the Bode Wilde slip up.... Not sure how I missed that. As for Merkley, I feel strongly that if he goes in the 1st round it will be one of the last 5 pick and it will either be a team with multiple firsts (rangers, chicago, detroit), or a team that trades up into the very back end of the round to nab him

    Here is a link to the interview the weight quote is coming from. They start talking about his weight at the 9 minute mark. He clearly says "77" when he says how much he currently weighs. http://ckstam.streamon.fm/listen-pl-9522?smc=10

    I know. If you actually listen to the interview it really sounds like he says 77. I think he is being misquoted in all of the tweets. Being a swede, it would make sense that he was using the metric system. There was also a report going around maybe 2 or 3 months ago during his season that said his weight was up to 167 pounds. I don't think its reasonable to believe he has gained 10 pounds since then. Also, just Google "Elias Pettersson weight" and you'll see that the result is 77kg.

    I think he said he is around 77... Meaning 77 kilograms. This would put him at 170 pounds which is more in line with what we have been hearing

    Wahlstrom has pulled his commitment to Harvard. Reports are that he's deciding between Michigan and Boston College, and that his decision could be announced as soon as later today.

  14. 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    I live about 20 minutes South of Barrie so I've been able to see him play live 8 or 9 times this year. His defensive play is overlooked because everyone is drooling over his skating and his finishing ability. Svech has great gap control on the PK and is always getting himself in the lanes to pick off passes. The one thing that is overlooked is how big and strong Svech is. He does not lose board battles. When they played Owen Sound and he matched up with Gadjovich, Svech made him look like a child all night. It feels like a bit of a lazy comparison to make because they are both big and Russian, but I see so much of Malkin in Svechnikov.
  15. 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    You're mistaken there. One of the biggest arguments for taking Svech ahead of Zadina is his all around play. Both of these guys are elite goal scorers. But Svechnikov's skating, strength along the boards, and defensive play are exactly why I definitely think he should go second overall. On top of scoring nearly a goal a game in his draft year, he is one of the very best penalty killers in the OHL.
