  2. Always feel like a jerk when I can;t understand someone's accent. You say "pardon me?", they repeat themselves and you still don;t understand and just kinda nod like an asshole hoping it wasn't something you needed to respond to...

  3. That goal that JV is getting blamed for is total BS. The Sedins had at least 3 chances to get it out and Biega shouldn't of over committed like that plus he knocked JV over with that pointless hit. Sometimes it's not best to hit everything and that play was a token example. They will destroy this kids confidence if they keeping putting him in situations where he is bound to fail like playing with the two slowest players in the game. I though JV came out strong and looked good in the first period, a lot better than everyone else not on the first line then they sit him for 10min. As Willies

  4. Good point. Very much agree. Also says a lot about a kid who, at age 18, and having been accepted to Harvard and drafted by an NHL team, chooses others over himself. He could have easily decided to focus on his own future, go off to school, and get himself one step closer on his journey to a hockey career. Instead, he recognizes his brother is in the middle of some therapies and treatments that are working, and is at a crucial time in his own development. Decides to stick around and help out, and not risk destabilizing his little brother's life.

  5. I think Phaneuf's contract was a modified NTC wasn't it? Makes a big difference. Alex's contract is finished at the end of next season, so I think management probably waits until 2019 to trade him. I disagree with you about Phaneuf being a pylon; he's just overpaid for what he does. Guys big and tough, puts up 30pts each season and 100 pims.

  11. Addition by subtraction. The Leafs were able to move the "PYLON" Phaneuf, and not retain salary. We should be able to do the same with Edler.

  13. I really hope we can swing Edler, with 50% retained (+/-) for Cal Foote...

  15. I totally agree, and Id add that him choosing to stay and help his brother will also help his maturity. When you have a family member with issues it gives you a better perspective on life. Looking at him as a prospect Ill take a year of him being happy and growing maturely, over one extra year of development.

  16. I hear ya. Obviously getting him into a system where he played more games and more months of hockey a year would be preferable. As would a higher level of competition. But given the particulars of this situation, I'm not too worried about him taking another year at home to stay close to his autistic little brother. Harvard can wait. He's still pretty raw and was always going to be a long term project. He's also undersized. And had he been only about 4 months younger, 2018 would have been his first year of draft eligibility. So the fact he's dela

  17. All I know is that I'm pleased to see that we stole a top-line forward in Sven for a 2nd round pick, especially from a divisional rival in the Flames. Concerning the discussion taking place of Sven being displaced by upstarts, I don't think he has too much to worry about AT LEAST for a couple seasons. He's still signed to a value deal, developed chemistry with the team's two young guns (Bo and Brock) and is producing himself. Most hotshot rookies don't make the league that quickly after being drafted so unless Gadjovich is the next coming of Lucic or Goldobin suddenly becomes Kuc

  18. We all love the Twins. Maybe it’s best to keep them together, and let their poor play help us slip to some really good draft lottery odds? It’s most likely their final season anyway.

  19. I don’t understand why you draft a kid that plays fast, physical and on the edge and then tell him to stop playing the way that made him success and why he was drafted. Then act suprised that he’s less effective. I was excited when he was drafted finally a physical player that other teams will hate and know when hes on the ice. Then he does what young players that need to play on the line to be success did and threw a questionable hit and got suspended for it. The Coach and the captain call him out in the media then he comes back and is confused with what his role is if not the player the
