  1. Baertsch-Bo-Boeser The triple B line. Make it happen!
  2. Barkov doesn't have the same defensive game Horvat brings? Are you serious? Are we talking about the same Barkov who was sixth in Selke voting last year, at the age of 20?
  3. Nothing indicates that Konecny will be a better player than Brock. It was Brock's decision to go back to college, so it's not like Konecny made the Flyers while Boeser was cut from the Canucks. Besides, Konecny got off to a hot start but hasn't been terribly effective since then. In fact, I believe he's a healthy scratch tonight. Benning didn't miss with Boeser. He hit a homerun.
  4. This speaks volumes to Juolevi's fire and passion. Seriously, who calls a closed-door meeting at the World Juniors? Finland's coaching has been abysmal and Juolevi and his assistant captains took it upon themselves to try to find a solution to the problem quickly. That takes nuts for a teenager.
  5. Errr... not good. Bealiveau at 20? Bobby Hull at 27? Lafleur at 25? Morenz at 28? Brodeur ahead of Hasek and Roy? Sidney "I'm about to sweep the Art Ross, Lindsay and Hart... AGAIN" Crosby not even on the list? Sakic? Potvin? Ovechkin???
  6. Given the conference Brock plays in and the fact that he lead his team to a championship, scoring four points in the final game, I'd say their years were pretty comparable. And they finished their seasons scoring at around the same clip. Boeser also plays a more complete, all-around game than Connor.
  7. Brouwer won't be signing in Vancouver.
  8. Trust me. It's not going to happen.
  9. Crosby has been miles ahead of anyone on the ice. The third line is the beneficiary of Crosby drawing pretty much everything the other teams can throw at him, leaving them to prey on the weaker match-ups. Sid has been an absolute force so far in the Finals.
  10. If you need a reliable mini-van and someone offers you an Audi R8 for the same price, you don't pass on the Audi because it's not what you were originally looking for. You take the most valuable asset and figure things out from there. Edmonton won't pass on a chance to throw a 6ft 3" franchise winger on McDavid's right side, unless they can acquire something really sexy through trade.
  11. If Columbus is dumb enough to pass on Pulijujarvi, I can almost guarantee that Edmonton won't be.
  12. That chart really doesn't look all that bad. Only Bonino is a successful regular NHL contributor and that's playing on a line with two top six wingers, while Crosby and Malkin earn all the toughest match-ups. After that, none of those assets could end up contributing, in a major way, at the NHL level. And I like how that list conveniently sets the cut-off before Benning's fleecing of Calgary in the Baertschi deal.
  13. There's no guarantee he would have had 90 points. Let's see him keep that up for an entire season. McDavid was almost nine months old than Sid was when he skated onto NHL ice, and by the time Sid was the age McDavid's is now, he was well on his way to sweeping the Art Ross, Lindsay, and Hart and was the best player in the world. McDavid needs to prove himself, before he's mentioned alongside Sid.
  14. The thing is, there is no defenseman in this draft on Hanifin's level and none are worthy of passing on one of Tkachuk or PLD.
