  1. I would go long-term on Motte ala Poille in Nashville. What more can you ask for from a bottom 6 player? Probably played with the most determination on the entire team. Relentless on the fore-check, back-check, blocking shots, scoring timely goals etc. To have that role and still be one of, if not the most impressive player this post-season, I don't know. I'm in awe. We had Petey score 18 points, Hughes breaking rookie records, Demko.. and still.. Tyler freaking Motte.
  2. I mean what a story line if that is to happen. Matthews, Johnsson for OEL, Schmaltz, Fischer, 1st Round Pick 2020
  3. I just can't see Toffoli being the priority over Chris Tanev. I would be absolutely shocked if the Canucks don't see it the same way. The only way I see Toff being (barring cap clearing trades) signed is if the ask for Tanev is too high. My "too high" is anything north of 6 mil. Both Edler and Myers are making 6 mil a year, I don't see how Tanevs agent won't use that as an argument for his contract. Guy desevers more money than both Edler and Myers. I think the only way we are retaining Toffoli is by trading someone. Is he that much of an upgrade over Pearson for example? Pearson is probably the guy to be moved if they are going to try to fit Toff as well. I think JB needs to really be agressive and try to move one of our higher cap hits in the bottom six. I think the likeliest there is Rous.
  4. Nice. JB is doing his job and exploring options. Where is the news?
  5. Going to be super interesting to follow his early days in N.A. My guess is that he will be loaned to an SHL club for next season. I believe that is the best thing for his development right now.
  6. Best player on the ice, not in your heart. Pavel Bure. Nominating Ryan Kesler
  7. I have to admit, I really like what the Islanders are doing. It's refreshing to see a team that is so blunt about their identity. Just a group of really hard working players. Both Parise and Pageau really really fit into their culture. Brava.
  8. I mean this is the aim right? It really should be the aim if it's not. The farm should function as a conveyor belt of on the cusp NHLers. Trade the ones that are replaceable for more assets while replacing them with in house talent. And the cycle begins again. I can't remember a time the Canucks had this much depth in all positions.
  9. This is really surprising to me but I thought it would hit harder than it actually does. I never really chalked this up as an option but it does make sense. Hope he goes unclaimed.
  10. I've got a bunch of colleagues that have been part of very successful projects while doing very little during those projects if you catch my drift. Not saying that applies to Guerin, it's just, he's not really been a part of any discussions of "the next big" thing in management. I guess I'm just surprised by the move.
  11. Absolutely. I just can't see Bill Guerin being the best available option out there.
