  1. I’d be going after Reinhart over Eichel. Plays wing, centre had a great second half of the year, plays defence, and is only 25. He would also come in way cheaper than Eichel
  2. Big difference between Gillis trading for Higgins than Benning re-signing Pearson. Higgins was brought in to be a defensive third line forward on the brink of a cup run. While we re-sign Pearson when our own gm says we’re two years from competing. How is career production misleading? Of course that includes his rookie years and everything . If you take out last year and his first two years he has a career average of .44ppg. If you just take out I’m willing to bet that he never matches the numbers he put up last year again. Something misleading about Pearson last year? 6 of hi
  3. .46 career production last year was an exception to his career average. He’ll be 29 by the start of next season, how many 29 year olds do you see improve their production? Also has bad possession numbers.
  4. We have how many contracts to sign? Why do we continue to spend money in 3rd line production? Can we not trade our expiring contracts for pieces to help at the draft or prospects? Don’t we have a couple forwards who are in the system that could replace Pearson? We’ve been in the playoffs two times in seven years and have been in cap hell for most of them.
  5. The contract is .5M, 1 year and a NTC to much for my liking. I dunno what is it is with Benning and handing out NTC’s to depth player. The guy can’t learn from his mistakes.
  6. Kinda seems like his time here. Seemed like a dbag the entire time he was here and didn’t give a crap.
  7. Dawson creek Batman AA in grade 9 but we played AAA tournaments and NEBC Trackers Midget AAA in grade 10. He played PG cougars AAA and Caribou Cougars midget AAA. He wasn’t even the best player on his team in midget, there was this kid named Ryan Howse who was way better at the time but ended up being a total booze bag and threw his talent out the window. Three kids on the Caribou team actually ended up being drafted
  8. Not saying that it was Holtby’s fault last night (he was hung out to dry) but a big save or two at the beginning of the game for those gaffs might change the outcome. Demko has a good shot at taking the net over a bit tonight. The defence and break out needs to tighten up a lot though, from centres not covering dmen, to one winger dropping low or switching sides following the play, to stupid gaffs up the middle, to last man back not making the crisp play up, to all the breakout passes in feet, or behind the back passes into a crowd, it’s turning into frustrating hockey. They’re literally doin
  9. I can keep the politics out of hockey but if the guy is being pouty cause of his crap play and fighting his teammates I wouldn’t want him anywhere around the dressing room.
  10. How long is Laine going to have to quarantine for? Between Aho’s Hurricanes being postponed, to Pettersson playing like trash and Laine not playing / being hurt / now this trade. My fantasy team is currently in shambles.
  11. Gonna assume he’ll be replacing Stecher this fall if the reports on Rathbone being nhl ready or close are true.
  12. I’m going to assume this might mean there’s somewhat of an idea to work with our cap crunch.
  13. There was two summit series, ‘72 and ‘74. Granted I did get them mixed up.
  14. There’s way to many examples from today’s times to when you started watching watching hockey that are similar to the Baertschi play to list. I’ve also played hockey my whole life so I understand it’s different dirty but to say the violence hasn’t gone down? My dad owns the ‘74 summit series and there’s nothing like that now. Scott Stevens was a national hero for ending careers and now it’s 5+ games for most of his highlights. The game is way softer than ever just look at the league average in hitting over the last 10 years
