  1. Ironically, the people who say Ottawa overpaid are probably the same people who would have given Boeser 7m+, on a long term deal.
  2. One of those potential deals. Despite having a 41 points season, he isn’t as great offensively as people think he is and actually hurts his team in generating offensive chances.
  3. I would rather not pay a similar deal to Boeser on his third contract (ie: a 6-7 years deal) when he’s turning 30. Those last few years of that contract will be atrocious to deal with. Ideally, I would want a similar deal as Werenski (3yrs, 5.5-6m), which will take Boeser to 25. Then, secure him long term on a bigger deal, that will end when he’s turning 32 (during his prime years). Something along the lines of 7yrs, 8M.
  4. I mean, a lot of people thought Sanchez and Stroman were safe bet to be Jays in the long run.....but that didn’t exactly pan out.
  5. Actually advance stats showed he’s was one of our better defensemen (min: 50 games played). Corsi at an even 50%, which was second on the team, with only 52% offensive zone start time. His on-ice save percentage was a moderate .91 (third amongst defensemen). While his defensive points shared was a respectable 2.6 (3rd amongst our defensemen). Obviously, these stats could be a bit skewed by playing against lower competition. However, he did play a lot of top 4 minutes earlier in the season with Edler and Tanev being out. I don’t think the Pouliot hate wasn’t really warranted. Was it his fault that he was put in a position to play way above over his head, with our injuries? Some players flourish and some don’t. Pouliot just happed to fall in the latter category. He looked perfectly fine playing on the 3rd pairing with Gudbranson and Biega.
  6. Why does the most skilled player needs to be the captain? Avalanche - Landeskog Bruins - Chara Blackhawks - Toews Flames - Giordano Wild - Koivu Devils - Greene Blues - Pietrangelo Jets - Wheeler
  7. The cap doesn’t always increase significantly every year and with the CBA expiring as soon as next year (opt out), who knows what the cap will be in the new CBA. It could potentially go down. Regardless of a bridge deal or not, you are still going to have to pay your RFAs once his second contract is up (if they continues to produce). IMO, its a risk especially for players like Boeser/Keller/Nylander to pay them now long term. They’re not in the same tier group as a McDavid, Eichel, or even Marner. You pay Boeser a 7m+, 7 years deal now, that will take him to 29. You are going to have to pay him a similar deal on his next deal. Which in his final years of that contract will be a disaster to deal with. Ideally, I would pay him on a bridge deal now, 2yrs at 6.5M. Then pay him, big dollars later on, that will end when he’s 33.
  8. Heffy is still recuperating from the 2013 bronze medal loss against Russian, at the World Jr. when Reilly couldn’t outmuscle the Russian player which cost us the game.
  9. Takeover is ALWAYS good, whether it be UK or not. All Out was certainly better than anything WWE has put out on the main roster, but nothing can beat NXT right now. Triple H has stepped up the game (no pun attended), ever since he took control of NXT. Can’t recall a single bad Takeover, maybe Takeover Fatal-4, but even then the main event between, Breeze, Zayn, Neville, and Kidd was MOTY worthy.
  10. Doesn’t matter if he’s not getting top 6 minutes. What you’re failing to understand is he’s playing with Edmonton’s offensive players as his linemates and he still can’t get it done in the offensive zone. There’s a reason why he’s being benched and a healthy scratch in games, because he’s not producing any offensive spark for the team. Again, it’s not like he’s getting the Virtanen treatment, where the coaches won’t put him in any offensive situations and playing him with lesser offensive talents on the team.
  11. I wasn’t implying his regular linemates were McDavid and/or Draisaitl. I was simply implying his majority of his time in Edmonton he was paired with their top 3 centermen. Even if he had a few shifts per game with them. It’s not like he had Brodziak, Letestu, Desharnais etc as his centermen. Heck even Ryan Strome is a pretty offensive minded centermen to play with.
  12. I hope they don’t replace them with Steve Dangle. That dude has such a punchable face.

  14. Are you serious? He has had every opportunity in Edmonton to succeed, playing the majority of his time with either McDavid, Draisaitl or RNH as his centermen.
