  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Pretty sure there's bigger problems then smoking plants in Russia right now... Sounds to me like someone who has no interest in coming back but doesn't want to burn bridges just in case. If he does come back in three years he'll be a 26 year old defenseman not used to North American ice with a track record of poor commitment to both the team and his own physical fitness. At this point I'd take picks for him and call it a high risk/reward pick gone wrong. Can't win em all!
  6. The only update in the new NHL 18
  7. Fitness testing says they're the best we've got...
  8. Canucks were the more physical of the two, weren't running people but everyone finished their checks and laid the body when they could. Biega caught one of the Kings pretty good along the sideboards but he popped up after. Ryan White got hammered in the neutral zone (forget who it was but he was a big dude) and Pedan stepped up to fight (didn't win but held his own). Virtanen was all over the ice hitting everything that moved and both Biega and Gudbranson stood out for me as being real stiff and physical along the boards in their own end.
  9. WOW! Great job Benning and Co! If he keeps improving at the same pace he has been this will be a steal.
  10. Option 3: Treat every prospect like their own unique player that develops at their own unique pace as opposed to a piece of meat that can be summed up in a generic poll. Prospects aren't microwave dinners, you can't just pop them in, set a timer and take them out when they're done. If every prospect could be put into category A or B then there would be a lot more teams pumping out hot new prospects every year.
  11. As far as someone I'd like to see in the top 20 that didn't make the cut it would have to be Joe Labate. His willingness to grind and do whatever he needed to do to stick in the lineup was impressive and it's not as if his production (little under 0.5 PPG) disqualifies him from being able to contribute on the ice with more than physicality.
  12. Happy birthday Sam! Regardless of if he slots in with Horvat, rides shotgun with the twins or just supplements our bottom six I'm excited to see what he brings to the team.
