  1. Vancouver Canucks @Canucks · 9m .@tdemko30 will make his @NHL debut today, he's in vs. Columbus.
  2. [TankGDT] Arizona at Buffalo 4PM PST

    Someone's going to get a couple points... Here's to hoping it's a 3 point game. Sabres in OT!
  3. THIS IS THE DAY, Canucks get #7

    This is nearly what they do? They draw 4 numbers numbered 1-14. Each team has pre-assigned combinations. With a little math, a single combination in that scenario has a 1/1001 chance at being selected. Basically, they can assign down to 0.1% with this formula. https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/behind-scenes-2017-nhl-draft-lottery-gary-bettman/
  4. THIS IS THE DAY, Canucks get #7

    The format of the draw is so they can be flexible and assign any percentage at any time or draw to any team, without changing the format of the draw. How do you assign 1.2% of a ball into the draw pool? If the format was 1 ball per team with even odds for everyone, then sure, that would work. Truth is though, they change the lottery format from time to time, like we've seen recently. I'm not saying I agree with it, just pointing out the reason for the way it is currently done.
  5. 6-5 Islanders. Daniel with the first goal.
  6. Agreed. This is how you rebuild properly. Acquire picks, build through the draft, and sign FA that are worth something at the TDL.
  7. Pierre LeBrun‏Verified account @PierreVLeBrun now More details on Evander Kane trade, Sabres get 2019 conditional first-round pick, Dan O'Reagan and a 2020 4th Rd pick
  8. [Discussion] 2017/2018 Calder Prediction.

    If healthy all year.... Brock Boeser.
  9. Anyone catch the shove by Bettman?

    I have to tip the hat to Yahoo sports for saying what we all think about the winners and losers of the 2017 draft. The winner is surprising! WINNER: Gary Bettman The commissioner has basically become a wrestling heel at the NHL Draft, knowing his very presence will draw heat from the crowd. But Bettman took it to another level in Chicago: At one point, with the boos during his opening remarks present but tepid, Bettman told the crowd “c’mon, you can do better than that.” And the floodgates of jeers opened. He’s become self-aware! This is dangerous! https://sports.yahoo.com/winners-losers-nhl-draft-2017-211925333.html

  11. [GDT] 2017 NHL Entry Draft

    I see a little of this in our future: #Gadjovicktory
  12. [GDT] 2017 NHL Entry Draft

    I'm ok with trading the pick, as long as it's for two picks...
  13. The new Adidas Jerseys watch

    Saw this on twitter earlier. Not my work, but well done!
  14. He did an excellent job when he had the right players to work with. The following year, we were missing that RHD, and it was too hard to make the system work. The guy has creativity in his style and willing to try new things. He would be a decent choice. How much worse could our PP possibly get?
  15. Every year, every GM says they would be open to moving up or down in the draft or listening to offers. We all know how that turns out. Nothing to see here. Response from every GM: We are happy to make our pick at ___ and get a good player.
