  1. If this year's draft used standings from the season before, would you defer our first round pick or use it?

      no you have it wrong goalie13

      if nucks miss the playoffs the pick stays

      so you are missing all the points of the question


      if the nucks have an option

      i say they use the pick asap

      and happily give up the pick next off season

      team is on the upswing

      and using the pick now only strengthens the team a year early

      @coastal.view, unlike the Gretzky thing, I think I have it right this time.  

      From CapFriendly "*Conditions: If the Canucks do not make the playoffs in 2019-20, the 2020 1st round pick will transfer to a 2021 1st round pick instead."


      Either way, they can't choose to defer.  It's entirely based on where they wind up in the standings.

      though we speak the same language

      we are speaking it differently

      but not worth debating further


  2. Definitely an overestimate, he’s like 5’7 if you ever see him walking around Boston. Same with Gaudreau, he’s only 5’9 with skates on.
  3. Same amount of points as Phil the Thrill in less games. I've converted and am now a member of the Church of Virtanen. Someone baptize me please.
  4. Sadly the whole team had a short run of being the top players that they were. Had they held out their peaks for even 2-3 more seasons we'd at LEAST be looking at another cup final.
  5. Woah this is really cool, who was number 1? Dahlin is also a really consistent point getter, he's not gonna front load the season with points and tail off either.
  6. Not satisfied with playing time in the AHL and went back to Sweden just to play in the SHL? I guess this kid really knows what's best for his career. edit: just to NOT play in the SHL.
  7. You're not wrong- and not to single any player(s) out, but that's on the shooter for not finishing those chances/creating a shot for a rebound or on Freddie for making a good save. The team as a whole still played really well and equalled their moments in controlling the puck in the Leaf's defensive end, and we were able to create chances off of Toronto's failed breakouts and turnovers on top of that. Sure Matthews might have deked around a player here and there, but I honestly expected a lot more considering the quality of their forwards. You have to expect those players being able to make those plays here and there every night. Not even taking into account that they have expensive quality wingers and even double stacking their top centers at during different shifts.
  8. Andrew Yang is also one of those big internet people. Made his wealth through internet entrepreneurship after his time as a lawyer (which he claims to have been bad at).
  9. Haha yeah that actually is him. Someone took a screenshot before he took the post down.
  10. Imagine being the Rangers looking back at the McDonough trade thinking how they not only traded their top defenseman, but somehow giving up JT Miller as an add-on as well.

      Well the Rags originally got him from the Habs for trash Gomez (at least he was trash at the time he was dealt).


      Actually feel for the Panthers who made moves to clear up cap space (like effing US up when Luongo retired) to try and sign free agent Panarin and Panarin  ends up signing with the Rags.  Panarin currently has 36 points in 29 games for them.



  11. Guys, I looked back on the Rangers - Tampa trade with JT Miller. How is it that a team who trades FOR Ryan McDonough (big piece) ends up getting the second best player (JT Miller) in the trade as an add-on? How does Stevie. Y do it?
  12. No one is "doubting" him. Have you seen the games? None of what they're saying is false. Recently this season, his shots suck and his passes are sloppy but those "doubters" are still acknowledging his potential, his ability and the points he's put up.
  13. Yep that's why I think he's top 3 than top 2 right now. Svech has been killing it this year, he's got everything. Size, speed, hands. Can only hope Podz can turn out like that.
  14. I saw that too but as of THIS MOMENT, I'm more inclined to say top 3 than top 2 right now, but absolutely in a couple years can move up to top 2. Generational maybe too soon to say, but if he can challenge for the Norris over an approximate period of 5 years then absolutely.
