  1. Nice game... Did Green bench Podkolzin after his nice snipe in the second period? 7minutes of game time only in a game that went to OT lol...
  2. lol what's up with these kids feeling entitled because they were drafted high.
  3. In the context that we are having Dal Colle, Juolevi, Virtanen in the conversation, anyone playing 2nd line and above is great. By the way, your list is really conservative. Jones, Ekblad, Laine, Dubois are great players.
  4. The list is so bloody obvious it'd be an insult to your intellect if I had to write it out for you.
  5. Actually most top 5 goes on to become great players in the NHL since the 2013 draft. Dunno what you are posting just because MDC is waived.
  6. Two consecutive Stanley Cups, did an amazing job, deserves to get paid.
  7. boy our coaching staff really likes to treat prospects drafted by our own organization like second hand citizens while newly acquired players like Leivo, Vessey, Highmore, Chiasson gets like 17, 19+ minutes a game and top 6 looks. What's the logic behind this lol.
  8. 2014 draft 18/30 2nd rounders played in the NHL 2015 draft 23/30 2nd rounders played in the NHL And this doesn't even matter. I like what Gadjovich brings and his progress. Now he is a Sharks. I don't see other NHL teams losing prized prospects... May be you can name some good prospects that were lost to waivers from other teams? Sure every team loses fringe projects. But as said again, Gadjovich is looking good at 22 years old.
  9. how dare you guys insult Highmore.. there's a post of 30+ pages on this board somewhere singing praises to this hockey prodigy all to justify we "won" a trade.
  10. Yeah no one is saying we should be married to our prospects. But losing a gritty 22 year old who has been progressing in the AHL to the point of 18points in 19 games last season is a failure of management. Gadjovich is good callup depth and 1-2 years down the road may become a good regular player for us. You trying to argue that away is "the complete logic fail" lol. On the other hand, let's say you are right and Gadjovich does suck. Then that just means Benning wasted another 2nd rounder and drafted no one. His homeruns of Pettersson, Hughes and Boeser over 7 years of drafting high (because our team has sucked for 7 years) is not looking so good when paired with Virtanen, Juolevi, Lind, Gadjovich.
  11. Free prospect to the sharks? Amazing... Hoping a gritty, 2nd round prospect, and who produced at ppg at the AHL level clears waivers... what are they smoking?
  12. lol.. Pittsburgh signed Marino to a 6 year 26.4million contract. Obviously very high on him and he is their top 4. So why would Pittsburgh trade Marino to us again? For Rathbone, a prospect who may not make it? For Poolman?
  13. Still remember when people were saying Shinkaruk won't make it because he is too small at 5'11". Now we have posts asking why a 5'9" AHL ppg player is not making it in the NHL.
  14. Juolevi is no longer a highly touted prospect for a few years already. And here we have Juolevi for Tampa's #1 prospect.
  15. Pettersson slightly more than Barzal, pretty good. Hughes on a 6 years deal at 7.85mil, that's great as well.
  16. Dunno why here we are criticizing agents for doing their job: maximize value for their client. If Pettersson's camp wants to argue they are closer to what Eichel is getting (10mil) and Hughes' camp wants to argue they are closer to what Makar is getting (9 mil) they are well within their rights. It is up to Benning's abilities to ride this through.
  17. Except... the reason we haven't signed Pettersson and Hughes yet is because of the cap. Yet your proposal goes over the cap.
  18. he has human rights, but the other people who gets to be around him doesn't? Like 60 year old coaches gets heightened chances of catching covid? lol... such dumbass comment doesnt bode well for this young dude's career.
  19. I can seriously see a drop off from this guy in 3-4 years. Dont know why/how Wild is being hold hostage over him.
  20. Comparing yourself to the Oilers and feeling good about it.... That's a new Lowe.
  21. Giving a D to Hughes/Pettersson signing is more than fair. We have left ourselves with only 14mil of cap space when it will probably take 8mil each to sign both. This is why it is still not done deals and we will see how it plays out. It is much better to get these done early so the star players are prepared for training camp, which further adds to the D grade.
  22. dunno why people keep saying this when hes signed some big contracts like Bobby Ryan, Chabot, Murray, Batherson and now soon to be Tkachuk.
  23. Could be exciting and do wonders for this team if he plays as good as he is hyped.
  24. prime Bertuzzi/Naslund dominates the league. Luongo/Sedins are close.
