  1. He's a scorer, despite claims he's a playmaker. No, he has eyes for goal and nothing else. Guy can pick out a top corner on a backhander on a breakaway or with 2 guys on him, for God's sake. You can't evaluate all prospects the same way, and Virtanen's definitely a top 10 this year. How many have even watched Virtanen play, I wonder The only question is, a player like Virtanen flourishes in a minimal-contact, open-ice type of hockey, due to his skate and shoot mentality. How that translates into the dead puck era NHL is a different story altogether.
  2. Maybe he was injured mid-thread and had to play more defensively
  3. They can't fire Torts after this, so I'm okay with that
  4. Torts reaction to MG interview + his own opinions https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VTa60JNF6B4 Very impressive how Torts manages to whip the media while staying calm and rather jovial. For a young team with less proven talent and just coming off the worst season of this generation, a guy like Torts will be invaluable in terms of nullifying media scrutiny and controversy.
  5. That's Burrows' reputation, not the hit. Pretty sad that his record is still on file compared to others, though
  6. Garrison is one of those players who don't play very well but manage to get points. Edler has made more mistakes that cost the team (goals), but in terms of reliability Garrison is not good against good forwards. He is always a step behind mentally and while he skates hard, his defending is too honest, too predictable. He needs to play more like a Hamhuis to be worth his contract, because at this point Ryan Stanton is a much smarter D-man.

  8. The contact was the head AND the shoulder, so not sure what bs Shanahan will pull. That said you do see Niederreiter's elbow come up after the impact as though he was focusing he blow towards Burrows' head. It looks more intentional than not, so it merits a suspension in my book
  9. Two (rather) surprising goals from Booth, shots 2:1 in favor of Minny, Edler saves a goal. Yes, it's 3-1 but it really could be 3-3 or 4-3 if things went a little south.
  10. This really reflects where we were in 2011...
  11. Jensen is what Raymond wants to be, and it's just amazing how good this guy looks already
  12. Horvat is first rounder, will be elite Not even close to the worst trades ever for the team You just can't please CDC. Keep Lu, and MG sucks for keeping the contract. Trade him for younger players and he sucks because they retain what, 800k? Give me a f***ing break.
  13. Walk in the park. While being on fire. And being forced to listen to Nicki Minaj. During a level 5 hurricane.
