  1. So, when things don't work out for you in life, just play the race card? Sounds right on par with today's society... just blame your circumstances on somebody else. No one is discriminating against Jordan because of the color of his skin. They're discriminating against his play in the defensive zone.
  2. Hell, it just happened to us three years back. We went for the bruising power forward, passing on the smaller, skilled offensive catalysts. And now Toronto and Winnipeg have Nylander and Ehlers and we have Jake Virtanen... whose greatest career accomplishment is taking an Instagram photo with Justin Bieber. That said, Patrick is a stud. i'd take him over Hischier because of the intangibles he brings (toughness, two-way play, a winning pedigree, etc.) I could see him being a Toews/Getzlaf-like player in the future. Not Matthews/Laine level but nothing to sneeze at either.
  3. The draft doesn't work that way anymore. Arizona and Colorado may have the best odds but neither is guaranteed a top 3 pick. And neither is Vegas. They simply have the same odds as the 28th ranked team but could slide to as late as 6th, if three teams from outside the bottom three win the lottery. That said, even if we finish 3rd last, we could still end up drafting as late as 7th. Edmonton ruined the draft for everyone, unfortunately.
  4. Baertsch-Bo-Boeser The triple B line. Make it happen!
  5. 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?
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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???
  9. 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.
  10. Brouwer won't be signing in Vancouver.
  11. Trust me. It's not going to happen.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. If Columbus is dumb enough to pass on Pulijujarvi, I can almost guarantee that Edmonton won't be.
  15. Lol, give me a break. You've never even seen him play, buddy.
