  1. Funny how when a team plays poorly, it's the coaches fault, but when a team plays well - it's the players.

      If we end up something like 2-8-1 to start the year I would think the leash would be pulled. 

       

      We seem to be heading down the road of another bad start to the year, but with no excuses this time.

      I don't care if Aqulini is paying him in ski resort coupons, I just don't want to see a bad defensive group again this year.

       

      I do think the issue may have more to do with Baumer and King, and Green being very loyal to them. 

       

      Shaw has had a good impact, lets go out and get some more quality NHL assistant coaches back there.

      sometimes it is the coaches fault.

  4. After spending many hours digging into Benning's draft history, I have concluded...that it takes until about 6 years after the draft for me to be confident in my judgments about draft picks.

      I like the Breezy pick a lot, I thought he might be a regular by now. Jake seemed like a good bet at the time too.

      its always fun when the Leaf's lose. Not 1st round loss fun, but still.

      just wondering how your initial reactions lined up with how the picks panned out

  8. Seems Florida has a 50% max attendance restriction in place for this Islanders v Panthers game. 

  9. Rathbone is better than Byram.  Holy crap!  We are a really good team!  Leave CDC Avs’ fans.

      As we get better, the trolls are going to get pettier, weirder and more dug in.

      Well, there's two ways to a mans heart, so as long as you're not forced into Leafs undies or asked to wear a Marner jersey to bed then you're still OK.

  13. You Benning supporters are something else. The mental gymnastics you must go through to keep supporting the guy is insane. The rest of the league is laughing at you just like the rest of the world laughs at Trump supporters.

      @ken kaniff the way I look at Jim is he's been a better than average drafter, I do like how he treats people, and yeah he's made some pretty big mistakes, but a lot of that was under Linden.

       

      Since Linden tho Jims put together a pretty neat team. I'm not bashing Linden, just think for some reason the Benning -Linden thing was just off the mark.

      but @ken kaniff its clearly going too far. People aren't doing gymnastics, other teams GMs make mistakes as well. If the teams GM is killing your enjoyment maybe its time to take a break.

       

      Look at whats on the ice now, this is the most talent since 2012.

      its called not being constantly angry at a teams GM. Its a nice place to be.

  16. juolevi for lind?

    1. JM_

      JM_

      AZ for our 2nd round pick back. AZ has 5 2nd round picks, they could do a lot worse than Juolevi for 1/5 of those.

       

      But i hope OJ stays here, I don't believe he's been given enough time. He seems to have a good head for the game and just needs to put some games together imo.

      lets not be too hard on Nate, he did end up in Winnipeg after all. Thats punishment enough.

      I've been there twice on road trips to Alaska, it didn't strike me as that weird a place, seemed fine. But shows you never know.

       

      The only place I've never felt safe in BC is a town called Kitwanga, I thought I was going to get murdered at the gas station there.

       

      Stay safe @J.I.A.H.N

  19. Du Hast by Rammstein seems to be the best song to play really loud for the telemarketer scammers.  They hang up very quickly!  I wonder if it's the lyrics or how loud I play it?  :metal:

  20. Devils are going to have an ugly year.  Very soft team, with crappy goaltending.  They will struggle to get 70 points.  Heisher and Hughes might be the worst 1, 2 centres on the league.  Just a bad club all around.

      yeah but Dougie is still getting paid. So there's that,

       

      With all of the yap, one thing that never really came up is Quinn may not have wanted to go there to lose.
