  1. Do we give Bo the "C"? POLL

    If it were up to me I would have 6 alternates for this season. 3 home and 3 away games. Home Alternates: Horvat Edler Sutter Away Alternates: Del Zotto Eriksson Gudbranson No permanent captain until the 2020 season.
  2. Actually, if it weren't for their rich history with those clubs .... I would say the Jays' TV viewship would be as good as, even better, than the Yankees, Red Sox, and maybe Dodgers. The Jays have a whole nation across Canada tuning into one station bring in views, whereas those clubs, only have their own state/area watching.
  3. [Signing] Blue Jackets re-sign Ryan Murray

    I still think it was stupid not to accept that offer. You get 6 extra picks, just to move down 2 spots.
  4. Having a good percent of GWG is irrelevant and it doesn't mean you're "clutch". It's the timing of when you score them. For example, how many of Daniel's GWGs were of the portion of 5-3, 6-2, 3-1, etc that we were already leading in the game? For all we know, we could have been up 3-0 in one game, and then the opponent scored a late goal, which would make the second player who scored (Daniel) get the GWG.
  5. Therefore in theory, the Beagle signing will turn out to be a mistake.
  6. All lengthy free agent signings are a risk. If Neal can maintain his average scoring output for 3 out of the 5 seasons, I'd say the contract was worth it, if you compare to the other big name free agent signings.
  7. Once they trade Karlsson, I highly doubt they'll trade Ryan. Ottawa needs to stay above the cap floor and if they trade both players, they'd be 11M below the floor.
  8. What we need to become Contenders

  9. I don't see how Neal is a one hit wonder? Alright, maybe he isn't putting up 30-40 goals seasons, like he did in Pittsburgh, but he's been a consistent 20+ goal scorer/40-50 points getter, throughout his entire career. How often are you going to sign that kind of player on the open market for less than 6M? Not very often. This signing is a solid one for Calgary and I kind of wished JB hopped on this one, as we need to replace the Twins' offensive numbers for next season. Beagle and Roussel won't be doing that, and at this moment Trev and co. are heavily relying on the youngster to do so. FYI, Calgary signed Neal for his scoring prowess, not to play defense.
  10. A defense of FA signings/Benning by a Benning hater

    Nothing against Beagle or Roussel. I think they do a pretty good job at what they do. My only gripe with these signings is that they are paid way too much for what they bring to this team, which is very little, when you could probably find cheaper options elsewhere. Kyle Brodziak is a good example. Plays a similar game to both Beagle and Roussel, but is being paid half of what they're making on a shorter term. Now before you say, "well we have a ton of cap space or who cares it's not your money.". Having a ton of cap space, doesn't mean we should throw money around. You spend your cap wisely for future needs and that's how you determine between a good GM from a great GM.
  11. Is it just me or is Neal's value over the course of his career has been extremely low? Signed by Pittsburgh for 6 years at a relatively low caphit (5M) and this is coming off a 40 goals season. Then, he gets traded at the draft for Hornqvist and Spaling, two 2nd line tweeners. Gets left unprotected by Nashville. And now, only gets a slight raise from his previous contract.
  12. I'm going to report VC for spamming.

  13. Meanwhile, Kyle Brodziak who plays a similar game signed for under 2M.
  14. Well, just the top of my head, Jordan Tootoo can be had for cheap. Matt Halischuk is another guy who was a regular NHL'er journeyman whose looking for a fresh start. If all else fails, Archibald can fill the role that Roussel can play minus the extra antics.
  15. Just because we have a ton of cap space, doesn't mean we should go gung-ho on a player we can literally find in the minors or overseas for practically nothing.
