  1. Hamonic got a NMC, but I agree. I doubt anyone waives their NMC's this year with all this Covid sh!t still happening. Sutter, Benn and Pearson could draw some interest though. Might have to retain salary on a couple of them, but no big deal. Pearson should net a 2nd in a worst case scenario and could potentially fetch more depending on his play this year
  2. Theres hitting and then there's Motte's play. He injured Hawryluk with a slew foot and could have easily hurt Gaudette with one. Theres competing hard and then theres stupidity
  3. I Mac is saying practice will resume tomorrow.
  4. I always liked Juulsen's game. Wouldn't be surprised to see someone pick him up off waivers.

      I'd be shocked to see him clear.  Lots of injury issues but still a ton of upside and youth.  I'd be stoked if we snagged him for free.

      Well not surprised to see that happen.

      Grr....damn you Florida. 

  5. I was wondering the same thing. I wonder if time in Utica would benefit him at all. Might just be better to have him hanging around pro's and learning from the NHL coaching staff.
  6. Kid reminds me of Burrows. Pure compete, a touch of skill and a pesty character. I like this pick a lot now.
  7. I learned one thing about Podz this tournament, his style of play makes his line mates better. His passing is crisp and his teammates have fluffed some glorious chances. He has the willingness to drive the net and go to the dirty areas to get pucks and create opportunities for his teammates and not just for himself. But, most importantly he reads the play extremely well. Whether thats moving up/down a bit in the slot to open a shooting lane, being in the right spot at the right time to break up a defensive play or seeing the best passing lane to set up a teammate. His stats may not jump off the scoresheet, but he's the type of guy you need to win a cup.
  8. Exactly, theres also a lot less pressure on him this time around since we have a better defensive core. I feel there was a lot of pressure on his play last time around and the need for him to turn into a top 4 D. Now less so. With Edler and Benn both likely leaving and Myers potentially getting picked in expansion there are spots to fill. Id be happy with a lineup like this after next year. Hughes-Rafferty Juolevi-Schmidt Rathbone-Tryamkin
  9. Does Canada have any need to worry about goal differential? I highly highly doubt it... Even so Im sure they don't need to worry about being +14 in the first game
  10. There's a point where it just becomes disrespectful to score. I personally am ashamed of this Canadian team. Where's the respect this country is supposed to be based on. I understand you never stop playing, but theres a point where you need to stop and show some self restraint and respect.
  11. Can easily protect him using Capfriendly's simulator. Schmidt is the only one I feel is worth protecting. Expose Myers. Edler and Benn are UFA's so no worries. Then protect 2 of Juolevi, Rafferty, Sautner, Chatfield, Teves and Brisebois. Maybe Tryamkin if he's signed beforehand? Juolevi is the no brainer for me and then protect the best performer this year. Likely Rafferty.
  12. Any chance someone on here works in immigration? Fiancee was sent back her permanent resident application without a letter/list explaining anything. Just trying to figure out if this is common.


    If anyone on here can help it would be appreciated as the government site is not very good at providing info to questions such as this

      When my wife applied(late 90's) we hired a lawyer to expedite the process. It worked pretty smooth way back then..good luck.
