  1. We're strong on the left side anyways. A top winger (or center winger - draft is deep at C this year) is also a need, so you go at that this year, and hope you can find a RD gem amongst the next rounds or next year....JB and Bracket will find a good player regardless. And should we somehow squeak in, I think it may mean more than many fans realize. These guys making it in, even if they're out in 4 would really help them as a group mentally. After a very tough, up and down season, to still have made it, will reinforce what Green has been teaching them, don't quit, keep working, battle. It will pay dividends down the road when we're ready to actually compete. It will also toughen them up. The game changes, the boys need to learn how they will need to up their intensity, start being physical, deal with more physical play etc. It's nothing like Junior, they need to learn at this level. Whether we pick top 5 or #16 we'll still be fine. And honestly, I would love to see them make it simply for Marky, that guy will have willed us in if we make it. He deserves it after the year he's had.
  2. I really want to see Jake on the left side with Petey. Petey with two guys who can snipe on his wings, Jake has speed and size to get in on dmen. It just makes perfect sense and I am at a loss why Green won't give him a chance to play his offwing (when every time he does he's effective). He's proven to be reliable defensively, give the kid a chance. Maybe Green feels Jake sinks back into being 'comfortable' too much but I haven't seen that this year. Most nights he's at worst playing a very responsible defensive game. I really think he is the type of player that would mesh well on that first line.
  3. Zion Williamson and RJ Barrett are just a treat to watch. I'm not even a big basketball fan but I make an effort to watch Duke. No one will stop them
  4. Yes and some players are still learning how good they can be. Not every player develops the way Bo did. If you can't see development in his game you're blind as for 'having to explain this" - From what I've seen of his goals, most of Jake's goals have actually come from blowing by dmen so fast they don't even have time to react, much like McDavid that way (and no dolt, I am not calling him McDavid). Where are his goals coming from? Empty net breakaways? smh
  5. So you'd rather have a guy draped on him, vs him using his speed and going around him? Is Kreider a power forward? Not everyone has to play like Bertuzzi to be a PWF dude. The guy is arguably top 5 in the league in speed, you think players can keep up with him? You'd rather have him look like a big man and carry a guy on his back? Or wheel around him and score? go look at the stats I just posted about him. The kid is going to be a gem. I'm sorry if your lollypop isn't coming fast enough
  6. not a power forward? funny the stats say otherwise 13th in time on ice 2nd on the team in hits oh and he leads the team in takeaways at 43 and only as 19 giveaways, another nice little stat that matters alot. https://www.hockey-reference.com/teams/VAN/2019.html
  7. waaa waaaa waaa we didn't get our pretty dancers who disappear in the playoffs. You know why the laughs are going no where in the playoffs? you know why the toronto media are all having a meltdown? Because why? Because the leafs are a SOFT as hell team build to dance and look pretty in the regular season and entertain by scoring pretty goals. Guess what? Anyone who knows anything about hockey, understand the playoffs are a different beast, that the rules change, that size and physicality matter all of a sudden again, that you need a mix. Whine some more man, all I see is a 22 yr old kid, getting better and better in all facets of his game every year. He's had his best offensive year this year, and hasn't even touched his ceiling. Anyone who watches the goals he scores can see he's got a sniper's finish. His passing and ability to see the ice has improved this year, and yes has a way to go but he's being more patient with the puck and making good decisions. His defensive play has been his focus until this year and he's become solid in that regard. If he hadn't have been injured he could have or come close to, breaking 20 goals. Primarily from the third line guy. Give your head a shake, the kid is going to be a hell of a player for us. Anyone objective can see the strides he's taken in his game. In 2 years if he continues on this trajectory all the whiners will be cowering in their corners. I'll take Jake over those 2 pretty boys in the playoffs 10 days out of 10. http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/pdisplay.php?pid=149178 Some nice stats to also help you calibrate the points issues dzone starts 54.8 vs offensive zone of 45.2% - clearly green is using him in a defensive role He plays more a 3rd line role than anything else Takeaways - leads the team with 48 and missed a bunch of games, only 19 giveaways, a very nice positive ratio On ice save percentage 92.5 - 6th on the team - that says he's doing a hell of a job defensively
  8. I w I was going to say the same (LW). I 'd be curious to know how many of his goals have come from his offwing this year, it seems (anecdotally) to be a majority. The kid can snipe when he gets a good angle and a good look
  9. Whatever you say Jordan Jr! Keep it up! One day maybe you can go on tour with him! Dog whistles are obvious i love that you blame a white man’s murdeous rampage on the left - lol
  10. See son this is the white privilege we discussed before 1.brown man kills people - all brown / Muslims are evil 2. White man kills brown people - he’s not a right wing terrorist, we was turned to the dark side by lefties! Really it’s not his fault!! And certainly not all white men are evil! Your bias is sickening and twisted and again proves what I’ve said about your background.
  11. Don’t you get it? Racists are the real victims bro!!
  12. Google translator is a very useful tool I know lol let me know the answer, as I can then respond in about 70-80 of my different languages! Weee! Keep trying Jordan jr! But please carry on your “crusade” for the oppressed white male! especially in a thread that’s about 50 defenseless Muslim minorities who were gunned down by a white male terrorist
  13. You’re not fooling anyone with “us minorities” dude give it a rest
  14. “Majority being suppressed” lol 49 innocent people were slaughtered by a lunatic right wing white terrorist and somehow your focus is on the majority being suppressed by minorities and leftists. lol true colours shining through
