  1. Did the calculations have to change much with Seattle's addition?
  2. Combination of $&!#ting on Benning and just not following the rest of the league. When you only follow one team, you only know about one team. The years I took a break from my hockey pool were when I knew the least about the rest of the league
  3. The Miller trade ended up beyond worth it. Our leading scorer over the last two years for a 20th pick
  4. I think they both have 2 career goals. And Juulson was only picked 1 draft earlier than Juolevi
  5. Id say a high vaccination rate correlates with a more cautious level of decision making regarding opening up more in the pandemic. The places most gung ho to open everything back up (or just never close it down) tend to have poorer vaccination rates That's not to say we won't have 100% capacity by home opener, but the province won't rush the decision.
  6. There are cap implications to Rathbone making the team vs being a call up. He'll have a higher cap hit as a call up because we're using Ferlands LTIR
  7. Could not agree more I do worry that we're not going to be able to get our full team to gel as well as Seattle is doing. Even with Petey and Hughes coming in, Boeser is injured, Hamonic is ?????, and Sutter and Motte are not available either.
  8. Is Bailey even at camp? He got covid in the States
  9. I want the Avs to somehow get Fleury and Clague so that half of their D-men are named Cale/Kale. They should collect all the Cale/Kale's.
  10. Benning was probably trying to get him signed for 6-8 years. Those negotiations would've taken a lot of time Even once they settled on 3 years, JP Barry wouldnt have countered Bennings offer with 7.35 per year. The ask would've been higher and they took time to meet at 7.35
  11. Absolutely fantastic. Very fair from a comparable standpoint (Dahlin, Makar, Barzal)
  12. Woo is an untouchable for me too. He is our only notable RHD prospect. Why are we trading him for a RHD? We're not adding depth if we do that and Woo could become the cost controlled stay at home RHD that we're trying to trade for
  13. The radio contract ends this summer? Good. Make it local
  14. Good on this Seattle feed for establishing up front that the Kraken line up tonight is basically NHL calibre and the Canucks is not. And that's due to us being a road team in our first pre-season game
  15. Confirming that Shaw Channel 355 is working as a free preview for me
  16. They have the same agent. The negotiations might as well be for both players simultaneously
  17. I don't know if you were aware but he already left Boston last year. He was a capital
  18. Friedman says cap may go up 1 million next year

      6Y x 1M for Player Name

      LOL... I guess we can't say that name here anymore

      It seems unlikely though since the players owe a ton in escrow money. Would be nice though extra 1m will help getting Brock signed.

    Tennis

    Both Shapo and Felix were serving for a set in their respective grand slam semifinals only to get broken. Crushing. It took Raonic until his third GS semi to win one. Hopefully Shapo and Felix build on the momentum

    Tennis

    Raonic paved the way and made us believe. These guys have a higher ceiling than Raonic. A lower floor though, which is why shapo can't seem to rise higher than 10 (fails to take advantage of his seeding) and FAA has lost all 8 finals in his career. Consistency and winning even on their bad days will give them more opportunities to break through on their good days
  21. I would put Juolevi on waivers in a heart beat if we first claimed some other team's not injury prone, and preferably right-side equivalent to Juolevi
  22. Canadian Paralympic Committee releases 3D Printing files for 20 custom pieces to customize existing Lego figures to better represent individuals with disabilities and certain Paralympic sports

      neat, thats great. 

       

      Do you have a 3d printer?

      I don't. I wish Lego would get on board and just sell these (with partial (or all) proceeds going towards the Canadian Paralympic program).

       

      That paralympic website was careful to never use the word Lego 

       

  23. Ah, I only recall ever seeing PTO in the context of old washed up guys looking for a contract. Its good for job security that guys can have both. So if a PTO shows really good and is signed, then his AHL contract is voided?
