  1. Benning, Goldobin, and a logjam of forwards?

    Granlund or Goldobin. Lind gets his first real shot this year. He will take it if her earns it.
  2. Benning, Goldobin, and a logjam of forwards?

    It could be far, far worse. No? Instead of having too many NHL level players signed, here are some names that could still be around. Ronalds Ķēniņš Eddie Läck Brandon McMillan Adam Clendening Joe Cannata Taylor Fedun Linden Vey Alex Friesen Bobby Sanguinetti Dustin Jeffrey Mike Zalewski Niklas Jensen Kellan Lain Pascal Pelletier Raphael Diaz Jack Skille Jayson Megna Chad Billins Joseph Crammarosa Borna Rendulic Drew Shore Emerson Etem Matt Bartkowski Brandon DeFazio Benn Ferriero Zac Dalpe

    Having too many pieces is a good problem to have, no?
  4. Laine is a one dimensional floater. Did you even watch the playoffs?
  5. goals,goals...from who?

    I see Eriksson having a better year. I see Sutter having a better year. I see Granlund having a better year. I see Baertschi having a better year. I see Gaunce having a better year. I see Virtanen having a better year. I see even Horvat having a better year. I see even Boeser having a better year. And I can NOT wait to see Petersson in action! Lots and lots of things to look forward to. But most of all: I see our D having a WAY better year all around. Less injuries. More shots.
  6. Do we give Bo the "C"? POLL

    Hardest working player on a crap team for 4 full seasons. Why make comparisons? This team needs a captain. Right now. It needs direction. It needs a leader. It needs an identity. Today. Not in the past.

    Bo has earned it. He will not be given anything.
  8. I want to see the twins individually inducted into the HHoF. They had two amazing careers. Damn near all discussions, all accolades, including their most recent King Clancy award was given as "the two of them". Their final hurrah should be as individuals. Will it be? Someone made a post about retiring their jerseys on separate concurrent evenings. This would be great.
  9. Brock Boeser scores hat trick in first game back

    That snapper just as the D flinches for the poke is the best I have seen in a long time. He is a special talent.

    Bend it like Boeser.
  11. Is there a difference in leadership?

    This is probably going to be an unpopular, and even politically incorrect opinion on this matter. But I do not see much if any locker room culture difference moving forward. The corporate new age happy go lucky everything is sunshine and puppies type environment is what this team has been since Naslund. There is no brooding. There is no snapping at the media. There are no skirmishes at practice. There are (mostly) emotionless automatons that spout sports cliches and are expected to tow the line. Now, I am not calling for mayhem and insurrection, but a little LIFE once in a while sure would be nice.
  12. A defense of FA signings/Benning by a Benning hater

    Love him, or hate him, Jim has a vision and he is following through on it. Speed, skill, and character. In almost every single addition under 22 for the past three years. He sees where the league is going, just like he had a big part in seeing where the league was going when he won with Boston. I am willing to give him a couple more seasons to see where this path takes us before even considering calling for his job. A fine example of his vision, is Leipsic. Pretty much everyone on these boards had never heard of the kid,yet the grit, heart, and dynamic play that he brought to quite literally meaningless games down the stretch was a huge, and pleasantly surprising eye opener. And he is just one cog, one experiment in this long, long process. The rebuild is nowhere near complete yet. We still need a reworked D, and I expect to see a revolving door starting on the back end this season, with many, many auditions playing out as we probably again, but maybe not, fade some time after 30 games.
  13. Battles at camp

    He isn't going to be given anything, he will earn it, and take it.
  14. The Laffs have nice center depth. And then what? A goalie that chokes in the playoffs. A grandfather on the 1st line wing. And the most over rated D in hockey. Oh, and by the way, the Laffs have been rebuilding since Sundin left. So, there is that.
