  1. Really a different time and era Less points now a days Don't you think It would be interesting to compare goal differential I think it still works, if you score more goals than the other team you win?...…..I think!
  2. Oh, don't get me wrong CC I don't think it is a good idea at this moment to get rid of either, and would spend an asset to save one But I think that is also premature, because we are not there yet I would say however...…..I bet Demko out goalies Markstrom……….just MHO Time will tell...……..sure hope there is another goalie controversy.....one could hope!
  3. I think it totally depends on how Green wants to play his 3rd and 4th lines. One for sure has to be a defensive line, but if Green wants to have 3 offensive lines, and Sutter is kept to take important FO's I can see Gaudette coming up and playing center and Sutter mentoring him. IMO, I certainly didn't think Gaudette skating, stick handling, or play was lacking...………..FO percentage, sure...…...but again it would be better for Maholtra and Sutter working with him than Cull, if that was the only think he had to work on. I do not disagree that a couple of months down in Utica to gain confidence, and work on weaknesses...……. I would not doubt he gets 40 games in anyways because of injury
  4. I think Winnipeg is in big hurt...……... They Have lost both Trouba and Myers And now Big Buff is thinking on leaving???? There RD is depleted, and they will have to give up something Makes you wonder what Winnipeg would get for Laine? But they are ripe for the picking...…...absolutely!...……. I see the Canucks dangling Tanev...….why? Because of their depth...……..and it helps us, IMO Who takes Tanev's spot on our Blue Line...………….Benn, Stecher, Rafferty Possibly Tryamkin later on? Can Benn play defense as well as Tanev? ………….Pretty close, IMO Can Stecher play in the second pairing With Edler?....I think so Can Rafferty play 3rd pairing minutes on the right side....It looks like it Who takes Benn's spot on LHD?...….. Brisebois/Sautner....later on possibly Juolevi When push comes to shove......what would Winnipeg pay? Tanev for 2020 1st? (they had the 20th pick this last year) My question is, where does Winnipeg get their RHD? Who is going to give them one? To me, this is a huge opportunity, to move Tanev and clear cap But think about it this way Does Tanev fill Buff's shoes......no What happens if Tanev gets injured.... My guess is they fall, if they don't have a Dman there quick My bet is the Peg makes 2 moves for RHD if Buff retires otherwise they are pouched!
  5. Yup...….agree with you until Roussel comes back
  6. I know what you mean, and I gave you an up vote, because I agree with you But let us not lie here...…. The guys we will lose will be 4rth liners at best...…. That is the way it goes, the bottom always pays the cost What it does do is lessen our depth for those we can not protect, which is why Gaudette will most likely go down If Benning can not move any players My guess is Schaller and Gaudette go down, which is 2 million Eriksson would go down, if and when Roussel comes back if Baertschi isn't moved beforehand
  7. Hey, I will get back this tonight.....just want to say Gaudette played a great game last night It will be interesting to see how he plays the rest of the pre-season...…..I think he has arrived, but as others have said he will be put down in Utica, because of asset management...…………...first or second call up! (him and McEwen)
  8. I like the idea BUT...………...I hate the idea of trading Demko the reality is Markstrom is too close to retirement...…. I would be more in the camp of protecting him with a pick or asset Just because of Demko's potential..... Take a look at Demko's game stats last year...…….I know small sample size He played 9 games...…….take his best and worst game out of the mix and look at his average GGA and Save % It puts him top 10 in the league...……...and he is ranked as the 5th best young goalie I am not trading that for anything short of a top 10 pick...….and then only maybe a top 7 or 8 pick Now, lets go through this year and see where he is at, then think about it again Now, the other fringe players...….or disposables Sutter/Baer/Leivo sure! If you can get anything for them (but probably not all of them) But...…..not Demko!!!!!!!!!!! (How do I really feel?) lol Now, go back to work or bed! LOL Hey, good post!
  9. Solid Post/thread/subject Worthy of discussion
  10. I agree with all your saying rychicken, but my leash is a lot longer. My leash extends for another year or so...….it would be nice if he would have developed sooner, but he has progressed, and he is a decent overall contributor, just not reaching his potential, yet. For me, I want to see Jake at 25 years old.....that is when the team will be closer to its peak over all, and when I think the light goes on with Jake..... Personally, I think Jake needs that one on one meeting every game, where he has targets given, both subjectively and figuratively, meaning Jake should be given actual targets defensively, where he destroys players that have been identified. This in general would be his opposing wing and Dman. I honestly think, if he succeeded with completing his game defensive assignments (the hitting part), he would be engaged and the offense would come. This is not to say he should force the hits or run all over the ice, but to focus on chances that he does have. If he did this, a lot of opponents would be playing Jake instead of the puck, that would be a good thing, collectively for the team The other thing Jakes needs is a understanding of what Utica is like, which can be done for 2 weeks on an injury conditioning stint (I believe), personally, a couple of weeks on the farm, might get him to understand, how good it is on the big club...……..it should be strategic if needed. But I am not selling him, unless it is for a huge over payment
  11. First off, I think that we should give you reasons why your post will not work...…...From my pointed View #1. As much as we like DiPietro, there is a lot of question as to whether he is big enough to play into the NHL......time will tell, but it will take a couple of years to find out #2. Goldobin is a question mark, in terms of whether he will make it, it is a 50/50 chance #3. Virtanen is a good asset, which is better off in the Canucks control and on the 3rd line...…..accept that is his destiny...….the 3rd line #4. Schaller...……….sorry he could not make the Canucks last year...…….no value...…..maybe a 6th/7th at the TDL depending how he does in the AHL this year So, when you put it all together......Virtanen stays, and the other 3 would get you a freeze on the 4th of July Which is why most of our CDC has replied the way they did...…….
  12. The question then becomes, if we are trading him for those reasons, why would someone want him with all those problems ?
  13. These type of questions are rhetorical in nature and are based with not understanding hockey...…….sorry! #1...………..to score 2 goals in the NHL, you have to be involved, it does even matter if they go off you butt and in, because at least you were at the net, and going to the net is always good. #2...………..also, understand, Jake is not going to be an elite player, which is fine, the NHL is riddled with 1st round draft picks, who are decent players , who never took the last step and that is fine...……...this is an elite league.....there will always be a top and bottom, in regards to talent and skill, if you score 2 goals in 1 game, you certainly are not at the bottom. Jake is a 3rd liner...…..accept it and enjoy #3...………...Jake has elite speed and scored more goals than 50% of the players in the league last year...how is that bad? #4...………...Did you read the summary of the game? Calgary outplayed Vancouver by quite a margin, and Vancouver had 2 players that played noticeable well, Jake and the goalie...…...again, why the hate? Sit back and enjoy!
  14. OK...….GUYS...…...Virtanen score 2 goals in the other game! Just in case your hard of hearing!
  15. So, everyone knows Virtanen scored 2 goals, including the OT winner in Calgary...…...right!
