  1. I thought Jake was MUCH better on the back-check this year, he is starting to get it...I do agree in previous years he needed work...I just think the whole D. scheme could be tightened up quite a bit with better coaching... The Wild seem to have that side of there game down...so we will get to see how it goes with us having a decent O. scheme and a great PP but the Wild having the D. scheme... If we can tighten up a bit we should sail past them...but if not it could be ugly...
  2. At barely 22 years of age....nothing is proven...including durabliity....as far as that goes ...you could say with better believability that Tanev has a proven "lack of durablility" and yet he had a healthy season. Tell me all about it when Oli is 25 and is still on the shelf...
  3. The 100% healthy tag....is what I have been waiting for...I hope it's true...we may finally see what Oli can become!
  4. Tryamkin, Rafferty and a healthy Joulevi might be enough...we really only need to replace Tanev if we don't sign him, Benn and Fantenberg... I think our D. could be better than they have shown with a better structure provided by a better coaching scheme than we have seen...hopefully they hire someone who can make that happen...Green is finally doing alright with the forwards but he doesn't seem to know how to coach the defensive schemes very well...
  5. Hogs has all the moves of a player I used to hate...still not fond of....P. Kane...as well as a few that Kane can't do.... Predictions; We will be playing for the cup next year and Hogs will join us for the run... We will win the cup with Hogs and Podz playing a big role in 2022.... The Donald will be seeking asylum in Putinlandia....by the end of 2021...
  6. Or the guy I wanted from the next draft...Kevin Bahl...both guys are coming on strong...
  7. We may be saying this about our latest Finn one day.... https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/sami-salo-went-injury-prone-tough-steel-2010-playoffs/
  8. All the best Zack...show your dad what you can become and dedicate yourself to that and you will prosper and heal fast!
  9. I like that kind of talk...! Podz and Hogs is going to be a thing....
  10. Hogs is ours! He just signed an ELC...I hope he comes to Utica next year and gets used to the smaller ice... https://www.tsn.ca/vancouver-canucks-sign-f-nils-hoglander-to-elc-1.1471110
  11. If we were to trade Oli this year...I guaranty he will come back to bite us in the arse...Oli hasn't had a fully healthy season since junior and the injuries he has had to deal with have hurt his mobility...I think he only needs a good year of being healthy and working on his flexibility to get back on track and another year to be the top 4 guy we drafted....and maybe one more year to be a legit top 2...at the tender age of 24 or 25...which is when most D. men actually mature into a useful player. I expect a useful player at the very least.
  12. That may be the best goal ever....it is certainly faster and craftier than any of Scechnikov's lacrosse goals... This kid may have as much talent as EP and QH ...!
  13. As a winger he can use his speed and size to get in more hits on the opposing D. and if he fights we are not down a center for 5 or 7 minutes (instigating).... I don't think he is that great at dishing the puck...his passes are fine if he has a bit of time to get them through but he is no EP or even BH...
  14. Thanks for the rundown...and now it sounds like he should be ready to go within a season or so...given his age and skills...maybe he can turn Goldie into the sniper we were hoping for and they can come up together to join Tryamkin on what could become a top 4 D corp in that same time frame. At the very least he gives us some skill depth at center and left wing and effectively replaces Madden on the depth chart.
