  1. What Are You Currently Reading?

    Philip Roth just passed... He's definitely one of my favorites, and I recently got into a twitter fight ranking his novels. Portnoy's Complaint, American Pastoral, and The Human Stain are far superior to Sabbath's Theater.
  2. NHL 1st-round draft pick's career ruined by video game addiction

    I ruled out Juolevi when first reading it. The Bouchard comment has me a bit concerned though. I wouldn't laugh at this stuff. It's a compulsion, and for any player at a development stage, putting anything above hockey is going to set them back behind their peers.
  3. A Case to draft Oliver Wahlstrom!

    Evan Bouchard for me! Anyway, here's BW06's Wahlstrom montage, a must if you're to make a thread about him:
  4. Honestly thought this year would be the combo breaker.

  5. [Signing] Leafs to sign C Par Lindholm

    Would likely start in Utica. I'm always down for more depth.
  6. Huge honor for the kid. BUT HE'S STILL NOT SIGNED!!!! Give him max ELC and get this done. 3rd string probably, but he'd still be facing NHL shots in practice. Can't beat that kind of experience.
  7. Thread for U18s starting tomorrow - Yay or nay?

      Didn't the U18s start a week ago?

    3. Tortorella's Rant

      Well played Happy Gilmour reference!

  8. Bring back Gully?

    Eh, no point in really bringing him back. I thought he was the offensive/powerplay guy during some of our most abysmal years in both categories. Stick with Newell Brown.
  9. [Waivers] Reid Boucher

    He cleared. On his way to Utica.
  10. [Waivers] Reid Boucher

    Presumably on his way to Utica. I guess a playoff team could pick him up though.
  11. 2017-18 Utica Comets Thread

    This game is beyond dumb. This should have ended 3 minutes into overtime, but apparently tying up your own goaltender counts as interference. Carcone an absolute disaster in this one. Handed them the first goal, and took a dumb penalty in OT. I'd swap Dahlen for him in an instant. Eh, I should say something positive. Chaput looks amazing at this level. He was clutch in scoring that goal with 36 seconds left, in addition to assisting on the 1st goal. Demko is a stud! Absolute stalwart back there. I was also impressed by some of the AHL guys in Blujus/McMaster. This one should have gone to the Comets.
  12. [Signing] Canucks sign F Lukas Jasek

    I'm stoked to see that we signed him! I don't know if he'll ever make the Canucks, but he's at least proven he's solid depth even at this stage. I'd sign a half dozen Jaseks over the likes of Chaput/Megna/Cassels.
  13. Bridge is all they can expect. I had high hopes for these two. Both have shown upside, but they're 25 now.. a stage where it's make it or break it. They're no longer young guys with potential to bet on, but rather established pros with middling production. There was a period towards the end of the season where I felt Archibald/Leipsec could legitimately beat out Granlund/Baertschi for their spots on LW. We're a long ways from camp, but no spots should be guaranteed.
