  1. It's cool that you know Petey so personally.

  2. It’s almost as though people on this board can’t or won’t read. We didn’t trade a 4th for Bowie, we downgraded from a 4th to a 5th. If you claim him on waivers HE HAS TO BE ON THE ROSTER!!!! What is the challenge to understand here. We turned the 130ish pick into a 160ish pick. In exchange we get a player that had already passed through waivers and can sit on the taxi squad or AHL while Juolevi get to play more. That alone is a win in my book. Additionally we have someone to expose in the expansion draft that we don’t care about. You can hate Myers or his contract if you want but our rig

  4. http://www.sportsforecaster.com/nhl/player/10694 https://dobberprospects.com/player/matthew-highmore/ SCOUTING REPORT Is a proven, productive forward at lower levels. Can play both wing and center, which adds to his overall value. Is also fairly responsible in the defensive zone. Lacks optimum size (5-11, 181 pounds) for a forward at the National Hockey League level (especially if he is to play center in the big league), so he must get stronger. Speed kills and that’s Highmore’s biggest asset as it puts him into great positions on the ice to score. For le

  5. For those complaining about waivers, players like Bowen are more valuable once they pass waivers as we can just put him on the taxi squad and have his cap essentially removed. If we pick someone on waivers. The player has to he on the active roaster and eat into our already capped cap. Also a waiver pick up also would take up a spot from the kids that we should he playing for tue rest of the season.

  6. @Squam This is embarrassing. I don't want these clown fans associated with my team....this is NOT the time nor the place to fulfill an agenda like this. How about they hold the banner and jump off the bandwagon (as it's moving) instead? I'll give them twelve bucks for bandaids.

  7. I’m protecting Lind before Virtanen personally. But the Bowey thing makes sense.

  11. Our captain is happy... 44 points in 69 games... 3.25 mill... 3 years. I'm gonna support Jim's decision here. But yea lets forget our captain is happy and let's forget Jim has 10x the brain any of you negative trolls have... Lol. Makes me nauseas reading all these terrible comments from people that are just unhappy in life and want to bash Benning to fulfill their miserable needs... BRUTAL! I'm gonna hold and trust Jim's process. Thanks Jimmy. Glad Bo is happy! Canucks to the moon. Please no trolls allowed.

  12. If another postponement means playing more games in less days, then I'm not sure if that's a good thing. They should really cancel the remaining 19 games.

  13. Miller is a welcome change from the canned responses players usually give. His frank honesty is welcome here. The league shows how truly little they care about the players. Daly is an absolute piece of crap.

  14. Leaving Lind exposed would be like throwing away a 1st round pick. Benning would have taken Lind with a late 1st had he had one in 2017. No way he lets Seattle take him...

  15. Chicago HC Colliton’s take on Highmore (from 2020): “Highmore is a perfect example,” Colliton said after the season. “He doesn’t play 25 shifts in a game, but the shifts he gets he knows exactly what he’s supposed to do. He goes out there, he does it 100 miles an hour, he doesn’t cheat, he wins 50-50s, he advances the puck, he gets it in, he goes to the net. That line scored three or four goals at least in the series playing against top-line competition. It’s just because he’s willing to do the right thing. I thought the other guys did too, and then he gets off. He doesn’t extend h

  16. Really weird how people are framing this as because Gaudette supposedly gave the team Covid (with nothing to back that up). That's a serious accusation to throw around with no evidence, and also a ridiculous defense of management.

  18. People do realize that Pearson is not a depth player right ? as in he will continue to earn minutes up and down the lineup from top six to third line minutes. He plays the game right and does the little things well as per TG assessment since he was acquired. He can also score goals. This was a player relied upon as a top six on Championship winning teams in Los Angeles and will get those minutes at opportune times here, so why is he being brushed off by many here as a depth player earning over $ 3m per season like a......Roussel, Beagle, Eriksson......? He also took a p

  19. I am pretty sure J.T. Miller knows a whole lot more than anyone here about whether or not there is any need for concern. And from pretty much everything he said yesterday, he does.

  20. Get him over here ASAP for a few games. See what chemistry he might have with Bo or Petey at center. Find out what he needs to work on over summer .....skating, edgework, endurance, acceleration, upper body, whatever. As well, meet his teammates, get to know the city a little better (he was here for the world juniors, so not a complete unknown to him). Everything to make him comfortable when camp begins in the fall. He is going to be as much of a core piece for our cup-winning run as Petey, Hughes, Horvat, Boeser and Demko will be. Get him motivated and enthused by treating hi

  21. @SNuck: Would it make sense to create a new thread for the next game when we reach closer to game day? I think we should “social distance” ourselves from this thread and look at in the future as a thing of the past.

  23. Uh, he's likely at home because he's been in COVID protocol and JUST got taken off the list today. JT isn't. I think you should change your name to Drama Queen with all this complaining. I'm so tired of you constantly throwing the team under the bus. Buy a colouring book or something if nothing they do pleases you.

  24. Podkolzin will not sign a new contract with SKA ("Championship")SKA striker Vasily Podkolzin will not stay in the KHL.The 19-year-old hockey player will not sign a new contract with the St. Petersburg club, "Championship" reports.It is noted that Podkolzin was determined to try his hand at the NHL . Vancouverselected the 10th-pick in the 2019 Draft.This season in the KHL, the forward chalked up 11 (5 + 6) points in 35 regular season games.In the playoffs, Podkolzin became the top scorer of SKA, gaining 11 (6 + 5) points in 16 games.

  25. Calling Sheary a 0.5 PPG player is a bit of an overstatement. He had 3 points in his last game to bump his numbers up a bit for this season, but prior to that he was on pace for 33 (over 82 games). He's more of a 30-35 point guy (he had a good run with Crosby to up his career numbers). He doesn't PK at all. And this season he has 20 hits in 40 games so far. Plus he's 5'8. Pearson has had more 40+ point seasons. PKs and contributes in a shutdown capacity with Horvat. 40 hits in 33 games so far this season. I'd say Pearson has more of an impact to the overall game than Sheary does. B

  27. Is the anti-Benning spin going to be about the 4th round pick? Because burning a 1st and 3rd for Foligno feels like something JB would get roasted for.

  28. I’m recovering from a mild case of Covid. I’m a month in. I’m in the worst shape of my life. I still cant work an 8 hour day. I can’t imagine these amazing players being able to compete. This season should be canceled.

  31. I’d advise the players to consult with their reps and make sure they have a good understanding of their rights, as laid out in their contracts, the CBA, and the 2020-21 Transition Rules. I’d also advise any player who got sick, to consult with their own doctor, as well as the team docs and league reps. The players have pretty strict protections, written into the actual documents, that safeguard their health and well being. And if they have any concerns about how team or league medical personnel are looking out for their best interests, they can always consult their own doctor, or g
