  2. The problem with our outlook on our team

    Injuries also a big part of the equation. I figure it’s only the nucks who get smashed by injuries. Edmonton in particular confuses me. On one hand they seem to have a lot of the pieces they need. Just can’t seem to get it together. Surprised they didn’t show Mclellan the door. Thought the players had tuned him out by mid season last year.
  3. The problem with our outlook on our team

    Something seriously wrong in Arizona, Buffalo and, Edmonton. Not sure if it’s completely management related(I think fully the problem in Edmonton). Or just unlucky in their players not quite meshing. Or the often discussed loosing atmosphere that has ruined some players.(Buffalo). Arizona I almost wonder if having home games feel like road games to the players had anything to do with their inability to get going in the right direction? I sure hope the nucks path to relevance is better than those 3 teams.

    Who did the play by play. Reminded me of blurr.
  5. A defense of FA signings/Benning by a Benning hater

    Lot o crying over something that’s still approximately 3 months out. Benning has lots of time to make some moves. If he decides it’s even necessary. As it sits right now really only Petterson and Juolevi are likely to make team outa camp. Hughes if they decide he would be better served to turn pro this year. Sit back relax and let’s wait and see what happens over next few months! Ppl can resume crying once we have a better picture of what’s happening.
  6. NHL 18 Thread

    How is this game used for pro gaming? Haven’t played hut yet but, if it’s anything like couch multiplayer there are huge problems with this game for that. A friend and I have played multiple seasons already. So many games where either one of us is simple not able to compete. 1/2 foot passes missed, unable to take puck off opponent dispite clearly making a play on the puck. Goalies won’t make a save period. If the online play is even close to as garbage as couch multiplayer how can it be considered competitive.

    Iam not overly concerned about Erickson atm. Buyout for him seems highly unlikely. Gagme can hit the trail though. Rather redundant at this point with the likes of Goldy and Dahlen waiting in the wings. Given the nasty run of bad luck concerning injuries. I have little doubt those young guns get a chance to play regardless of Gagme being here.

    Absolutely! Elias’s shot amazes me. How he generates so much power in his shot. Kids gotta have that wiry strength.
  9. [Signing] Maple Leafs sign John Tavares

    It’s unlikely but, man would I like to see islanders make the playoffs and punt the leafs out.

    Hughes shot is weak but, from what I’ve seen he gets it to the goalie. More important than having a huge shot imo( see ankle buster Edler). If he can continue to sneak shots thru at the nhl level maybe we see a resurgence of Erickson cleaning up the garbage around the net.
  11. Toronto needs more help than just Tanev to help the tire fire that is there defence. Also lost in all this Taverese madness is will Anderson be able to continue to face a thousand shots a game like he has the last few years. Laffs maybe in for a rude awaking if they don’t get their defence sorted.
  12. Benning is doing a great job! (Discussion)

    Personally happy with today. Depending on how things shake out line up wise. We could have 3 fairly defensively responsible lines and a first line with at least some defensive ability. Not seeing nucks bottom out this year. Probably in the 21-22 area. Then nucks jump everybody on draft day to steal a our first 1st round pick.
  13. Hard to say how aging will affect Beagle. For now I think he helps us. With luck he plays well enough that we get some picks or a prospect 2-3 years down the line.
  14. Thought Beagle had a fairly gritty playoff run. Thought his unit did well on the forecheck. Maybe not a poo disturber but, I think he will do well here. Like his face off abilities as well.
  15. Literally thousands of posts begging for team grit. Benning goes out and signs gritty players who can play regular minutes. Somehow it’s a big fail. These bottom 6 players will now somehow ruin the development of players we hope to be in our top 6. Meanwhile some suggesting we should have signed a top 6 forward that actually would delay development of young guns. Amazing the the difference between media in Tor vs Van. Beagle could have signed a deal 5x5 with Tor and it would be considered the greatest move ever by Tor media. Could sign a 3x 1.5 in Van and media would still cry about it.
