  1. Just realized Danny Briere and BJ Novak kind of look alike.

    Amen DeNiro!!!!! Say it one more time for the people in the back please!!! "If he isn't ready there's no shame in it, and it shouldn't mean he's any less special of a player." <--- Needs to be said 100x. It's sacrilegious to send a player back to prospect hell, (a.k.a. NCAA/Utica Comets), they will never make it if they go back!!!

    And don't forget the parties in between...

    I watched that coverage live, McQuire almost always makes the right predictions as far as I can remember.
  5. Let's hope the Islander's next top line center decides to sign with his hometown team too. :bigblush:

      It would be something special to see Beauvillier suit up for the Sorel-Tracy Eperviers before he hangs them up.

      A hockey player grows in Brooklyn?

      Barzal, Bo, and Brock. SC here we come! Suck it Toranna!

  6. [Signing] Maple Leafs sign John Tavares

    Let's hope the Islander's next top line center decides to sign with his hometown team too.
  7. Ah, too bad. Used to remember the days when he was good. Either way, I wouldn't mind taking on short contracts similar to that and acquire assets. Of course, the return would have to be good (aka Carolina and Teuvo).
  8. I hear Tyler Ennis has a one year contract looking to be dumped. Jori Lehtera another 1 year contract looking to get dumped. 1-2 years isn’t so bad I think. That’s a deal I’d be happy to take on plus added assets. Wouldn’t you?

    I still believe in Goldobin, this season is the season to put it together and show you’re here to stay. Love the confidence and swagger of this kid.
  10. Again because of overpayment and too long on term. Short term cap dumps come off the book in a year or two and we get cap space again. By doing this we acquire extra pieces that “we want” as you’d say.
  11. Paying 6 million was an example I gave to prove a point in my previous post. Again he posted 4 in 6 and 4 in 7 on a Toronto team that didn’t show up. Did well in playoffs in Sweden and dominated WJC. Also I wouldn’t compare him to his dad. I guess Domi is just a goon... Either way, kid is young. Playoff numbers aren’t bad, most kids his age aren’t PPG players in the playoffs. He just needs time. Aren’t you someone who preaches patience with prospects all the time?
  12. Well obviously I'm not talking about adding goons that can't play. I'm talking about Beagle or Roussell... not Tom Sestito... So you rather pay 6 million to Beagle or Nylander? Pick. Also I disagree with the bolded, what about Chicago then? Would you not have Kane on the team because he's not gritty? That's really ridiculous, that's why he has other gritty players.
  13. Some capdumps provide grit and/or veteran presence. I'm obviously not talking about an extra 500k. Price pumping during free agency usually ends up being a million or two more than fair value, and usually 2-4 or sometimes 5 years too long. You don't face the same problems with short term cap dumps since they're off the books in a year or two. Not to mention you can acquire a gritty veteran player in that trade, that's not overpriced like a free agent would.
  14. If price is being pumped, I’d prefer not to sign anyone. Would rather take cap dumps on short contracts and acquire pieces for taking on those contracts.
