  1. I'd assume it's Quenneville and Bayreuther that he's talking about as both were UFA's. If they had agreed to deals with Landeskog or any others, those players would've been considered their selections from their respective teams. Maybe I'm wrong but I think this is part of the expansion draft rules.
  2. I agree. This is about as close a comparison as a person can find. I've been a massive fan of Weber since he entered the league and never did like Pronger very much. That said, it would be a coin toss between the two. IMO, I think these two are the best all around 200' dmen in the last 40 or so years.
  3. I'm hoping he can be the right handed compliment for Hughes. Like a Keith-Seabrook top pairing.....
  4. I wouldn't be against resigning Sutter but ideally I'd like to see him traded (EDM seems like a perfect fit) and for us to sign Scott Laughton for that 3C role.
  5. I've read this a few places now. I haven't seen him play myself but reading reports like this makes sound more and more like Gudbranson.
  6. Anyone think we will see the Canucks drop down far enough in the standings to see a top 3 or 4 pick? This Covid shutdown got me thinking yesterday that, even when the team is back playing, they're going to be really bad.... With a few of the players reportedly having fairly major symptoms, they won't be anywhere close to 100% for a while. It makes me think that it will be a very ugly 19 games to finish out the season. Potentially bad enough to get into the top 4 as I could definitely see LA, NJ, CGY and even OTT (4 head to head games left) surpassing the Canucks.
  7. This reminds me a lot of the Ballard situation. Both were easily top 4 dmen before AV's system and then both guys became healthy scratches for AV. Ghost obviously needs some sheltered minutes as he's simply not great in his own end, but paired up with a top shutdown guy, I think he could really excel again. As a coach having the luxury of a player as talented as Ghost, you'd think AV would modify his coaching strategy a little to make it work.
  8. I actually think they're almost a wash at this point. I really don't see Tryamkin being nearly as good in the NHL as he is over in Russia. If he had stayed in Vancouver and developed his game in the NHL it would've been a different story but I feel that chance is gone. As for the forwards, I do like your suggestion of Lowry. I'd love to see both him and Scott Laughton added. I'm not sure if Philly will let him go but they do need to resign Hart, Sanheim and Patrick this year along with Giroux, Couturier, Farabee and Hagg next year. Laughton would be an excellent fit at either 3C or
  9. Exactly. Just look at Pietrangelo's reaction on Saturday night when he saw MacKinnon flying towards him.
  10. I agree. Kinda hoping to be able to trade Malkin and Krug for a younger elite forward. If I'm out of the running by the trade deadline, I might be able to get Kucherov for them...
  11. As for the pool format, it's just season total points with payouts to 1st through 4th. No playoffs. (G=1, A=1, PIM=.2, SOG=.1) My team is currently 17 points out 2nd (12 out of 4th) and that's with Malkins struggles. I think there's still hope for me for now.
  12. Ya. I passed on it. It was more for the draft picks and then to try and flip Karlsson (which i doubt id be able to do). We can only keep 7 and I need to choose 7 guys from this list: Aho Svechnikov Malkin Scheifele Vrana Farabee Carlson Chabot McAvoy Krug
  13. I know the Sharks overall aren't close to what they used to be but I was wondering what everyone thought of Erik Karlsson in particular. I'm in a fairly competitive keeper league and was offered Karlsson, Schmidt and a 3rd and 5th round picks next year for Krug and McAvoy. The part I'm having trouble with is trying to figure out whether or not Karlsson can turn things around. I've read a few places that he was finally 100% healthy for the first time since joining San Jose so I obviously expected him to be better than he has been. What is your opinion on Karlsson? For some reason
