  1. Past hour
  2. I wish this event got as much attention as the 100m. Pretty amazing to be that elite at so many different things. Warner would have won 2-3 medals had he competed in individual events.
  3. The entire acquisition had bad juju placed on it. Can you imagine if Eriksson continued his pace from the previous years? No one would say a word about it.
  4. Ignoring evidence and restating your point doesn't mean you are supporting it. Lots of UFAs were awful that year, but you didn't even address that. Look at your blatant hate for the Loui lol.
  5. I'm sure all of us know he was overpaid for the offensive production, but your slant against Sutter for signing a 1 mill contract shows your bias. What about players like Thornton? Is it really true that he signed hometown discounts because that's all he was worth? Come on. Edler, who obviously plays a different position than Sutter, got 3.5 mill, despite the tough year that he had. My comparison here is that veteran players will always have some value around the league beyond 1mill. Add to the fact that Sutter is the best FO man for this price range, Sutter could've signed for mor
  6. The notion of vaccines causing mutations of Covid-19 is ridiculous. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/variants/variant.html Read the link. Variants of Covid-19 were already out there prior to vaccines even being developed. Unless you believe in Government worldwide conspiracies.
  7. Boeser’ qualifying offer will be $7.5M. And if he continues to play like he did last year, he shouldn’t have to accept less.
  8. They can, that's true. However, that's among breakthrough cases of infection, which is uncommon. The overwhelming majority of new cases are in unvaxxed people, so let's not paint a picture where vaxxed and unvaxxed people are spreading the virus equally because that simply is t true. https://www.jhsph.edu/covid-19/articles/new-data-on-covid-19-transmission-by-vaccinated-individuals.html
  9. Hoping McEwen and Gadjs can play those roles. Gadjs to me at least so far, looks like a throwback who will stand up for himself and his teammates every shift. Hope so. He's also making AHL D's and goalies lives absolutely miserable. Not easy making the jump. That's his best bet though. If i had his chance, i'd be taking that to another level and making sure every single shift to keep things honest, and not hesitate one bit to drop the gloves at the slightest provocation. Golden opportunity really. Zack has been ok. We could do better though. AR ruined his chance here taking d
  10. I haven't been very clear. I was speaking less about his ability and more about restrictions/regulations that come into play depending on what league you play in. Those may not even exist anymore, or maybe they don't apply because he hasn't come up through the North American junior system. I just don't know, similar to the 'I-don't-know' explanation offered by @elvis15
  11. New Jersey Devils sign two forwards! The Devils are pleased to have come to terms with forward Maxim Mamin over a two year deal to join the Devils. He joins a strong contingent of Russian players in the organization already and projects as a forward that should earn a role out of camp on the big club. We look forward to seeing what Camp and next season brings! In signing OdeenTufto, the Devils have brought in to the organization one of their primary targeted players, a quality individual we've had our eyes on for over a year now. Very pleased that the time
  12. That's a good post! I'm also looking forward to training camp and the start of the season. I wonder, just wonder, if this team gets 100-110 points, if those that have been so darn cynical and critical over last season, will eat their crow and admit it WAS the schedule, it WAS no training camp it WAS all part of the plan. And finally get of TG back. 8-3 or whatever to start WITHOUT our best forward. We were tacking and tracking for a playoff spot until AG spat all over it (ok well he is gone ... so where there is smoke ...). Anyone who's worked, i'm not talking about staying ho
  13. How is it hate to look at what this guy has given us and say that was not good enough. He took a small deal because that was all he could get at this point in his career not because he is some masterful, self sacrificing room uniting leader, that is just silliness. I personally would have liked to see the team cut bait on Sutter but for what he has signed it seems reasonable. Obviously there was something there they liked to keep giving money to a guy that is barely in the lineup. Sure he has some good shifts here and there when he can get in the lineup, but I don't think the loyal
  14. Today
  15. Yep. They are both developing players. On a positive note look at the Sedins. They took years to get to their PGP levels. Not just because they were behind Naslund, aside from Burrows and Carter nobody could boost their production. EP and QHs back then would likely also fail hard. But in today's game, where we are back to late 80's in actual size of players (when Chara retires will go to mid 80's lol), these guys are set up to win. Aside from Bure and Linden, we've never had players that have played as well as QHs, BB and EP right off the hop. They are so young, and years away
  16. Terry Sawchuk. Big time respect for Plante and all those goalies who played before him. Those guys didn't wear masks.
  17. 272 days until Cancun.

    1. AriGold


      37 days till Vegas and 94 days till Cabo !! Lets gooooooo

  18. Went with Jacques Plante. Was a toss up between Plante, Sawchuk, and Broda for me.
  19. That's risky. EP could explode this year or the next ... if he doesn't he's still like a Sedin out there during their prime minus their peak year. He explodes and the next deal is going to cost major bank. He's got a Mckinnon trend in him possibly. I'd be happy to lock him up for 8 years. But would pay him anticipating a PGP (point per gamed played). That's Sedin like money, 6.1 back then, so in today's money that's 7.75-8.25 tops. The last 3-6 years the cap will start rising again. Back then the cap was rising again and like 8.6. QHs i'd like a 2 year deal..
  20. Any illusion that either one of Hughes and Petey is worth close to double digit figures is out to lunch. They're great players, no doubt, but the fact is that both of them still have have a ways to go before they're comparable to some of the best players in the league. Petey hasn't been a PPG player yet, has been hit hard by the injury bug, and honestly just doesn't drive the play as much as I'd like him to. Unpopular opinion, but I think some people are still a little blinded by his first 10-20 games in the league where he was just incredible, before the rest of the league figured
  21. if he ain't ready for the AHL then he ain't ready for the KHL either.
  22. First of all i agree they really haven't earned much more then BB money. It's flat cap for three years at least, possibly five. GMs made some big mistakes so far this off season. Makar - hasn't earned top three money, neither has Seth Jones. Hamilton yes of course he has, four years in a row as a top RHD in this league, was on his way to winning a Norris two years ago, plus freaking 30 in 48ish games and almost as many points too, fourth in voting this year as well. Three years younger then AP was in his walk year and tops or top five in virtually every 5 x 5 catagory. Better then
  23. This article provides some info on the variants and the places they were detected. https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/conditions-and-diseases/coronavirus/a-new-strain-of-coronavirus-what-you-should-know
