  1. They may not have a direct impact on each other, but having Horvat in the lineup provides another threat offensively meaning the opposition has another player to focus on. This takes some pressure off of Boeser and allows him to have a bit more space. You can see now that the defenders are focusing in on Boeser and he has very little time and space to execute. Interesting stats nonetheless though.
  2. No need to lose hope yet. Barzal could get an injury (not hoping for it) that sets him back while Boeser slowly creeps back up. Still a lot of games left to be played and although Barzal may look to be running away with it now, Horvat's return could change all of that.
  3. Kole Lind | RW

    Goals are considered primary points. He has 56 points as of now and 51 of those points are primary (goals and primary assist), which is 91%. If we are looking at assists only, he has 35 assists as of now and 30 of those are primary assists, which is 86% of his assists are primary. Hope that clears it up. Did you know that 57% of stats are made up though?
  4. [Report]  Sharks looking to trade vet D-man Paul Martin

    He's the type of guy you go after once you've lost out on getting Gudbranson.
  5. Barzal with a 5 point night. Will Boeser have a big night in his home state to keep up?
  6. [Signing] Jagr to Flames

    He could always sign a one day contract and retire as a Penguin or something, so he isn't tainted to be retiring with the Flames. I am curious what would be the 1% chance that brings him back. If someone offered him a 10 million dollar contract?
  7. Helped that Boeser had some excellent performances in the East to wake them up.
  8. (Rumour) Canucks listening to offers for Hutton

    But that is my point exactly, his value is percieved to be so low right now that he's not even garnering any interest (no calls at all apparently). However I think Benning is just trying to spin that he's not shopping him or listening to offers, but instead he made it sound like Hutton has no interest anywhere, which makes him sound like he's much worse than he really is. Hutton is dman with decent size and has shown some good offensive rushes. I'd assume some GM would inquire for a project for project trade at the very least. Even if it was a call to try and fleece Benning, that's still a call. If Benning isn't interested in taking calls for Hutton right now, then that's a different story and how I would've spun the rumour.
  9. (Rumour) Canucks listening to offers for Hutton

    It's probably a bad sign of his value if he really isn't getting any calls even inquiring about Hutton.
  10. 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    Benning seems like he doesn't mind going for an overager with his later picks and if any of these guys were available, I'd take a flyer on them, especially Bucek.
  11. Lehner is definitely not of the same quality as Miller would have been. If he's the best available, I wouldn't bother paying the price and just hope Halak steps up.
  12. If they don't collapse, that 1st might be only around 22nd overall and our 2nd would be around 35th. IMO, to lose Gudbranson and Granlund (low-cost utility forward) and we take a cap dump for them to fit the trade, I don't think a 25 year old (soon to be 26) dman that can't seem to get out of the AHL who plays a soft game for a big guy and a good AHLer so far (Goldobin-ish) is worth the slight move up where it starts becoming less clear on who will become an NHLer. Minus Fehr, I think that return is at least the start of Gudbranson alone. If they want our 2nd, then turn Marincin into Dermott or turn Kapanen/Dermott into Liljegren.
  13. I was looking at the rest of their D aside from Leddy and seeing only 12 or less points so I thought they could use a boost, but upon further research, it seems on par (for an average team) to have at least one guy producing well and the rest around just chugging along. The top ones seem to have 2 or 3 guys with at least 20 points so far though. I guess their greater need would be goaltending and if there was a Ryan Miller type available this year, that should be their focus I would think.
  14. Elias Pettersson | C/LW

    I fully agree, I made the same comparison to Horvat. Glad that I'm not the only one seeing this. Although because we have Horvat, it makes sense that we have Pettersson instead to add another dynamic to the team. Plus Gaudette looks to have a similar drive as those mentioned as well.
