  1. Didn't Torts love Edler? If I remember, he was playing almost 30 minutes a night. I think Edler hated Torts.
  2. This is where the confusion is coming in. I'm specifically saying, "if they have an agreement but wait to sign the papers". If the player is legitimately waiting to test the market, it's a different scenario. The trick for the NHL would be telling the difference between the two.
  3. I found my original post questioning this rule, It was the day before this was published lol. The one thing I'll say about the article is that they don't actually say there's a rule against it. They say there would be a high penalty if you tried to circumvent the rules, but there is no specific rule stating that you can't do it. You're probably right, and GM's likely wont test it, but at the same time, I don't see how the NHL could, in good conscience, penalize a team that doesn't technically break the rules. With that being said, we've all seen the retroactive Luongo rule so I wouldn't put it past them.
  4. I disagree. If the player and team agree to terms but wait to sign until afterwards, the team gets to protect another player without risking the loss of that one. It's against the spirit of the expansion draft which is that if a player is signed on for the next season, they are eligible, but since this particular scenario is not specified they would be able to get away with it. They're exploiting a weakness in the rules, that seems like a loophole to me.
  5. Out of curiosity, can you send me the link? I asked these questions about 3 months ago, so I'm curious as to when these comments were made.
  6. Would they? I asked about this awhile back because I hadn't seen anything about this exact scenario before. I've checked the expansion draft rules and there doesn't seem to be anything that says you can't have verbal agreement then wait until expansion is over to sign the papers. As it stands, it seems to be a very big loophole, and something I'd imagine that every team will take advantage of if they have the opportunity.
  7. Uncharted 4 9/10 This game did everything right by me and it might be my new favorite. It had a good story that was well paced. There were no points where I lost interest or felt that I had to "power through" to get to the end. It has stunning visuals and diverse landscapes. I found myself stopping and looking around on many occasions. The gameplay was very intuitive and smooth. I never found myself frustrated by not being able to grab onto something that I should be able to or not jumping the way I tell him to. It felt very polished. My only complaint is that the gameplay was a little repetitive; However, I barely noticed because I was enjoying everything else about it.
  8. I'm pretty happy with his offensive game. He has a notably higher ppg than last season and he's doing it without Marner or Tkachuk. The Knights offense is still good, but not as good as last year, so he's stepped up in a big way this season.
  9. Eriksson just signed here and has a full NMC in his first 2 years. I don't see that happening.
  10. Canucks scout at the Avs game tonight. Probably just due diligence, but I figure it's relevant.
  11. I've always had a thing for Aubrey Plaza
  12. Landeskog would make the lineup interesting next year for a number of reasons. First of all, someone would have to go. My money would be on not re-signing Burrows. Second of all, what would it do to the potential of Boeser stepping in? You don't throw that kid on the 4th but the top 3 would be pretty crowded. Personally, I'd see the lines playing out like this. Sedin-Sedin-Hansen Landeskog-Horvat-Eriksson Baertschi-Sutter-Grandlund Regardless of what the lineup would pan out to be, it sure would look a lot more dynamic.
  13. https://www.nhl.com/canucks/news/dorsett-surgery/c-284402348 Derek Dorsett to Undergo Surgery by Canucks Media Relations @Canucks / Vancouver Canucks 10:37 AM Share Vancouver, BC - Vancouver Canucks General Manager, Jim Benning announced today that forward, Derek Dorsett, will undergo cervical fusion surgery to repair disc degeneration in his neck. Dorsett is expected to make a full recovery and return to play. The surgery will be performed by Dr. Robert Watkins of the Marina Del Rey Hospital spine clinic in Los Angeles, California. Due to the nature of the procedure a definitive timeline will not be confirmed. "The decision to perform surgery was made after a thorough review of our options, including non-surgical treatment and rehabilitation," said Benning. "Derek, our Canucks medical team and Dr. Watkins believe that surgery offers the best outcome both for his career and long-term health. Derek is an important member of our team and we are optimistic for a full recovery."
  14. Jake isn't playing well right now. we've seen in the past that he can play well. The narrative will forever shift on players depending on their contributions, especially when they're young and have a high pedigree. The best option is to tune out media (positive or negative) and watch it pan out.
