  1. [Official] 2018 Training Camp Thread

    Patrick Sharp
  2. You have to wonder whether the conditional first keeping Karlsson out of the East this year was a prerequisite in the trade. As a Doug Wilson throw in it makes sense, but if Dorion left value on the table insisting on the conditional pick then that makes this whole trade even worse. If you’re a rebuilding team, why do you care where you’re offloading your veteran star power? EK will be retiring by the time the Sens are contending again.
  3. Can or should Jake be our Tom Wilson?

    I’d love that but if I had to choose between middle six physical force Jake and top 6 speed demon Jake with a more accurate shot and better puck handling I’d take the latter every time.
  4. Can or should Jake be our Tom Wilson?

    Tom Wilson built his offensive game on the cycle and playing out of the corners. Virtanen is in the top 2% speed wise in the whole NHL and plays a north south game while driving the puck to the net. I’d rather have Virtanen focus on the teachable skills that could make him an upper echelon player in this league than drag him into an MMA gym for combat training and tell him to start running skill players.
  5. So much for Shea Theodore vs Sami Vatanen
  6. [Waivers] Eddie Lack

    Isn't there something about trolling in the board rules? To stay on topic, I wouldn't be surprised to see Lack in Sweden to try and resurrect his career. I loved watching him play here and when he was on he was hard to beat.
  7. [Waivers] Eddie Lack

    I believe he's given me -8 so far, hoping for more as the day goes on.
  8. Cammalari looks like he has a shot at a 40 point year this year and Kings are doing well. Why move him?
  9. You wouldn't prefer the 100,000 goals?
  10. Loui Eriksson do we really need him?

    Horton? Clarkson? At least Eriksson will probably play to the end of the contract. What were you expecting when they signed him? Most of his goals are in that gritty home plate area but he's not a hitter and he's not a sniper.
  11. Loui Eriksson do we really need him?

    Agreed! The contracts JB has offered (Sutter, Dorsett, Sbisa, Eriksson) are putting together a veteran roster that can foster youth through the rebuild so we avoid having an Oileresque gongshow. It's the equivalent of overpaying a retail manager to put up with idiot stock boys all day in hopes that one of them develops into an asset for the company.
  12. The curious case of Brock Boeser

    They've said since day one that a big part of their plan is putting players in a position to succeed so why would we ice one of the team's best scoring forward prospects in a bottom six grinder role against Lucic, Maroon, Kassian, Gryba and Nurse? Once Green shortened the bench in the third Boeser probably wouldn't have played more than a few minutes anyway.
  13. TSN 1040 Interview with Chris Higgins

    Way to take it out of context. He says he's more at peace with 2011 nowadays, especially knowing that he left all he could on the ice. Said he played with a broken foot, did everything he could and by the end of it it was so physically and emotionally exhausting that you're almost glad it's over. Doesn't mean he's glad to just collect a paycheque.
  14. Team Goal Celebration Issue.

    I'd say a small part of it could be the environment as well. When the fans in Dallas start chanting along to Pantera or Chelsea Dagger starts playing in Chicago or the cannon goes off in Columbus and people are losing their minds the adrenaline is probably going a mile a minute. Hard to get as amped up when everyone in the arena is too busy snap chatting your goal to cheer. And @73 Percent, take a chill pill dude. The thread isn't the most riviting thing CDC has ever seen but it has more substance than your replies. If it's really as weak a thread as you think then you should be making strong counterpoints, not memes.
