  1. id probably feel the same way if those scouts ever made a pick that didnt look like a comparative disappointment after the fact. maybe ill come around but im feeling especially hopeless at the moment
  2. this has been my thought too. i don't think i'd be happy if Benning traded the 5th and Tanev for the 3rd...but if it were the 5th and Tanev to get Hischier or Patrick at 1 or even rockier road towards filling out our top line would worth it in my opinion.
  3. I've had the sense to this point that things still had to get worse before they would get better. i think things will start to get better now. It might still look as bleak (points, standings, etc...) but I think we're starting on the up swing.
  4. It's nice having someone here that has more actual insight than a 2 minute YouTube highlight clip. Thanks for sharing.
  5. I've said this before, but I don't think people's ceiling/expectation will be of a 4th liner in a years time. He did really well as a sophomore under Green in Utica and all he does is everything his coaches tell him. I wouldn't be surprised if we see him slowly moving up the lineup over the next two years. I sure hope Dhaliwal is correct.
  6. Thanks!
  7. I'd agree with this, and hopefully he won't be taken. The way people dismiss Gaunce here on CDC though is pretty silly. He is a far more valuable player for us (and into the future hopefully) than people who read stats give him credit for.
  8. Can you help me out here as this is the first I've heard of any of this (I guess I didn't pay much attention to all the expansion rules until now). So if Vegas signed Miller, we wouldn't have to lose somebody else? Something tells me I've got my wires crossed, that can't be right.
  9. would they? i actually don't know, would that have maybe been a good trade for us?
  10. he has the offensive game that chara had at the same age though...i don't remember how nasty Chara was back when he was 22, but I remember feeling surprised that he wasn't more dominant. it's definitely a reach to say Try is going to experience the same arc that Chara did, but it's not out of the realm of possibility.
  11. Just to be clear, is this a ballsy play betting that Sutter wouldn't get picked up? Or simply preferring to lose him over Gaunce?
  12. At the very least!
  13. I was thinking about Gaunce today in relation to the new coach. This is a coach who knows Gaunce's game and has already had success at cultivating it into a more productive role. Assuming he's a Canuck past the expansion draft, I would be surprised if we're still talking as dismissively about Gaunce a year from now.
  14. I would reiterate what all the "$1300 is nothing" folks are saying. It really is nothing to worry about. I bought a car last year with over $5000 on a claim and it was still nothing. The problem is when the frame has been bent, a little cosmetic damage to the tune of $1300 is not something you should worry about.
  15. Off topic but has anyone seen the interview Gretzky did together with Bill Burr? It's gold.
