  1. Elliott looks like a different player, he's rebounding well so far.
  2. If we can find some way to get rid of Gagner, I'd like to see them back. Heck, even if he's in the pressbox all year it would work. Our forward depth looks horrible right now, and we'll have injuries again next year. With Vanek, Dorcett, Burmistrov, and Gagner gone, we'll have room for some young players. (Preferably ahead of guys like Dowd and Boucher)
  3. Adam Gaudette has Arrived!

    A nearly 2 points per game in the NCAA, Hobey Baker finalist, 5th rounder.
  4. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Chicago Blackhawks

    It was a really good hit. Not "bone crushing" but it's smart. Jake made Keith give the puck away and removed him from the play for a second. And, as you said, Keith was playing to avoid hits and was getting rid of the puck early for the rest of the game. That's exactly how I want Jake to play.

    Those lines are accidently mis-labeled. Should be the opposite order: 1st is 4th, 2nd is 3rd, 3rd is 2nd, 4th is 1st.
  6. “We cannot wait to get on a high-speed rail line to come up and have the greatest hockey rivalry in North America, which is the Seattle Totems versus the Vancouver Canucks.” -Washinton State governor Jay Inslee He may have accidently confirmed the name, or simply used the one he likes best.

  7. Adam Gaudette | #88 | C

    Seattle. Likely June 2020. If Guadette doesn't start until next season, he will be exempt.
  8. I have it between McKinnon and Hall. Both are producing at incredible rates and leading teams, which were garbage last year, to the playoffs.
  9. Elias Pettersson | C/RW

    1st OA, no question.
  10. Jonathan Dahlén | C/LW

    Wow, that's some pretty high praise!
  11. Jonah Gadjovich | LW

    Oh yeah, I didn't mean to imply next season for Gadj. Likely a year of two in Utica first.
  12. Elias Pettersson | C/RW

    Hodgson wad an elite junior player and had a pretty good rookie year in the NHL. He had a back injury that hurt his development and a bizarre metobolic condition that made him physicaly ill during exercise. That's what ended his career
  13. Jonah Gadjovich | LW

    I'd like to see him with Pettersson, if he can keep up with the speed. He knows how to make space for high-skill guys (Suzuki) and it would be good to have some size out there with Elias. Bo is enough of a bull for his line imo
  14. Season Ticket Seat Recommendation

    Yeah, me too. It's pretty quiet in there sometimes, but I think that's more to do with the losing record than who is attending.
  15. Season Ticket Seat Recommendation

    There is a sentiment around here that a lot of lower bowl season tickets are owned as corporate perks or for entertaining clients. Business people come to the game in suits, talk shop, and don't cheer. I haven't gone to enough games to say if there is much truth to that.
