  1. 1) Malkin - If this was just a favourite players list he probably wouldn't rank for whatever reason I don't find him particularly likeable but man is he fun to watch. He's the most dominant player in the game when he's at his best. Too bad he can't maintain that level of play with consistency anymore. 2) Draisaitl - He's basically Malkin lite. 3) Subban - Guy is thoroughly entertaining albeit a little nerve wracking at times.
  2. Would be willing to bet that was just an exaggeration for effect but I have to agree with the general premise. I wouldn't have given this show so much as a second thought if not for a friend telling me not to watch it but that made it irresistible. There's plenty of people out there who will suddenly develop an interest in something the moment someone tells them it's off limits.
  3. Going green this time. I don't really want them to actually win but rather just to pick up enough seats to force a minority government. Would much rather MLAs (and MPs) were allowed to free vote (so voting could really be for the best candidate not party) rather than just following party lines but we seem to be allergic to that kind of thing in this country so a minority government is the next best option for forcing actual cooperation and accountability. I'll take the drop in efficiency over ramming through whatever the ruling party wants any day.
  4. United is a garbage airline. They permanently lost my bag and were incredibly rude about it at every turn. They then proceeded to violate international law by taking nearly double the allowable period (and it would've been longer if I hadn't been so relentless about it) to actually declare it lost. Took months to get compensation even though I had already had to replace everything long before. They lost about 50 other people's luggage on that flight and were just flat out rude to everyone that night.
  5. Man this guy just makes a bigger fool of himself by the minute.
  6. Absolute no from Colorado. Zero interest in this deal. The only particularly interesting piece is Tanev and trading our best defender for him is at absolute best a lateral move. You keep your players and we'll keep ours. Edit: I will give you props for at least coming up with a Colorado proposal that doesn't involve Landeskog, Duchene, or Barrie though.
  7. Solid ideas. Just need a few tweaks. First, lets just remove Landeskog and the 5th and replace them with Tyutin, Comeau, and a 2nd. Then we'll take out Barrie and the 6th and put in Tyutin, Comeau, Grimaldi, Gormley and maybe a mid to low round pick. Then, there is a 3rd idea (and I think this is the best one of all) you keep your players and we'll keep ours. Seriously though, Sbisa (and that contract) are just going to drag down Hansen's value.
  8. Avalanche NOT trading D Tyson Barrie, GM Joe Sakic tells me. LT deal preferred for RFA, or arbitration. "Either way, he'll be here" - Sakic — Mike Chambers (@MikeChambers) June 16, 2016 Sakic has pretty much always been a straight shooter with the media as GM. Chambers isn't the most credible guy but the Avs are notoriously hard to get information out of and I would believe a direct quote from Sakic over McKenzie & Friedman any day. Barrie very well may have been on the market and Sakic & Co just didn't like the offers they were getting but it certainly looks like he's off it now and it would take a complete blow your socks off kind of offer to get him out of Denver this summer.
  9. We can keep him and that's everyone's preference. We have a lot of big money contracts for mediocre players expiring in the next two years. We'll find a way to make the cap work unless he has truly outrageous demands or like ROR just really wants out. There is zero incentive to move him for a bunch of lesser assets that do nothing for us. We don‘t want Sbisa. He's not any better than our plethora of bottom pairing guys. If you want one of our (arguably) core players who just so happens to be a 50 point puck mover and second best D (one of our weaknesses), your going to have to give up a similar quality piece that fills a need. Even if we were to auction Barrie off, teams would be offering up much better pieces than what has been mentioned in here.
  10. You want Barrie? Then we want Tanev. That's the basis of the deal with picks/prospects added as needed to even out the value. Take it or leave it. We're more than happy to keep Barrie and if we did trade him it would be for a lot better package that fit our needs better than the collection of lesser pieces being thrown around here.
  11. So happy right now! Been waiting 15 years for one of my Denver teams to win another championship after getting spoiled as a kid. 01 will probably always be my favourite but I appreciate this one the most.
  12. Most likely related to EJ going on IR but it's been a long time coming in spite of Roy's stubborn love for Guenin. Zadorov needed some time in the A when he was sent down but played well and deserved a chance to come back up. Bigras has been having a nice year as well. They'll both need to play for the lives if they want to stay up but it's a really positive development either way. If it is trade related, I hope its just to see if either can help down the stretch or if we need to bring someone else in. Would not be pleased if it's to showcase either of them, especially not for Drouin.
  13. Guenin waived and Zadorov/Bigras called up, what a great day in Av land. I hope he actually gets reassigned. No way he is claimed but good luck to whatever team it is if someone is foolish enough to do it.
  14. At least we didn't lose an asset (however minor) for free. Sounds like he's not going to get reassigned til EJ and Stuart are back. Kind of sucks for Geertsen that this probably pushes him to his off side. Although maybe this is part of a waive the guy beforehand trades where the new team doesn't have to assume the risk of losing the guy for free and doesn't add another contract spot.
  15. Days like this sure make me miss Sherman.
