  1. [Trade] Sam Gagner dealt to AZ Coyotes

    Brian Lawton @brianlawton9 · 2m I am now hearing Boyle and Iginla as possible targets for @TBLightning in the UFA Mkt. Some vets to go with a strong group of young players
  2. [Trade] Sam Gagner dealt to AZ Coyotes

    The Bolts cleared $5.6 mil in cap room with those two trades..... I guess they are preparing to make a run at someone on July 1

    *2nd rounder.... even better!!
  4. [Trade] Sam Gagner dealt to AZ Coyotes

    It is a 6th rounder coming back to TB for Gagner and Crombeen
  5. [Trade] Sam Gagner dealt to AZ Coyotes

    What a great move from Stevie Y..... he obviously wanted to dump Purcell's salary ($4.5 M cap hit) without buying him out. So he trades him for another guy he doesn't want who is cheaper which allows him to get picks back that he couldn't get for Purcell cuz of his cap hit.

    lol am I the only one that thinks "Arizona Coyotes" sounds weird?
  7. [Trade] Gagner for Purcell

    Good deal for the Bolts.... Gagner is better than Purcell and he is also younger
  8. [Rumor] Ryan Miller to Vancouver Thread

    I don't think drafting Demko necessarily makes Markstrom expendable since Demko will be playing at Boston College next season.... but if we signed Miller it would definitely make Markstrom expendable.
  9. [Rumor] Ryan Miller to Vancouver Thread

    He played on the Sabres for most of the year.... what do you expect? As far as I'm concerned that is a good SV% playing on the last place team in the NHL.
  10. [Rumor] Ryan Miller to Vancouver Thread

    Why don't people like the idea of Miller signing here? I see Miller as an upgrade on Lack, and he still has a few good years left imo. I think Lack is good, but I also think its a little risky to rely on him to be our #1 next year. Plus, Miller could be a good mentor to Demko in a few years time. So long as Benning doesn't overpay, I don't have any problems with Miller coming here.
  11. [GDT] NYI - 03/10/14 - 7:00PM

    Canucks need to take advantage of playing teams outside or on the bubble of the playoffs this week with NYI, WPG, FLA, WSH on tap..... lets get off to a good start vs the Isles. 3-2 Canucks (Matthias, Hansen, Jensen with the goals)

    You do raise a good point in that St. Louis would play well on the big ice.... Like I said I wouldn't be suprised if he made it and I think he deserves it.
  13. [Olympics] OFFICIAL TEAM CANADA 2014 (everything related here please)

    I would not at all be surprised if St. louis made the team. But, the reason why I didn't was because he is undersized and is getting older. Canada has so many great offensive players to choose from and I just think there are younger, bigger players that Canada could choose from.

    Just because he wasn't invited to summer camp doesn't mean he can't make the team..... Thats why i said he would be the only guy not nvited to camp to make the team.

    Hey guys, So obviously the bulk of evaluation by the front office of team Canada will take place during the first half of the NHL regular season. There will be so called “locks”, but many of the players selected will be a result of them having a strong first half to the 2013-14 season which pushed them onto the team. Without knowing which players will play well enough to make it, try to predict the team from this point in time, the pre-season. This is not who you would like to have on the team, it is which players you think Canada’s brass will select to represent the country in Sochi. Remember, it is a 25-man roster. Here is my prediction: R. Nash – S. Crosby – S. Stamkos J. Tavares – J. Toews – C. Giroux E. Staal – R. Getzlaf – C. Perry P. Sharp – P. Bergeron – J. Carter M. Richards, L. Couture D. Keith – S. Weber P. Subban – D. Doughty D. Hamhuis – A. Peitrangelo K. Letang, M. Staal R. Luongo C. Price C. Ward Notes: - Despite the fact that Giroux skipped team Canada’s orientation camp, I think he is simply too good to leave off the team. - As long as the two Staals (Eric and Marc) can show they are not being held back due to their respective injuries, I see both of them making the team. - I think Hamhuis, Carter, Sharp, Richards, and Couture will all push onto the team with strong play in the first half. - The only non-camp invite to make the team will be Ward. I believe that he will bounce back from injury and play well in the first half. Thoughts? What would your pre-season prediction be of team Canada for Sochi?
