  1. Another WTH decision by Montoya. Tied game in the 7th, Panik doubled with no outs. Clearly you need to move the runner with a bunt. Long and behold he let one the Jays worst contact hitters on the team, swing away.

    2019 seem like a decade ago for Raps fans.
  3. Graves leds the team in SH minutes. Makar and him make up one of the best young defensive duos in the NHL. It’s more likely that they’re going to protect him over Toews, since Colorado is already deep on the right-side.
  4. To Vancouver: Ty Smith Damon Severson 2nd round pick To NJ: Quinn Hughes Tyler Myers
  5. Reeves wasn’t that bad of a draft pick, if you considered the players who were ranked around him. The only player who had an all-star career was Stoudamire. I’d be more upset at the Steve Francis pick if anything. The dude literally said he was not going to play for Vancouver, if the Grizzlies drafted him.

    I like Drummond the person, but he’s a below average center, who can only get you rebounds. If you compare him to similar players alike (ie: Capela, Robinson, Gobert, Jordan, etc) all of them are shooting above 55% on the field. While Drummond is at a dismal 47%. His career average is 53%. That’s not a good percentile when you’re only shooting 2ft-5ft away from the basket. Cousins is too injury prone and a turnover machine. John Collins is a player I would look at. Rumour has it that he and Young do not get along and the Hawks are willing to listen to offers. His price mi
  7. I suggested Hughes+ for Severson and Ty Smith and practically got the same response. I don’t know how much of a downgrade Smith is offensively. The kid has 8 points in 13 games (6 of those points are at ES) while playing on the 3rd worst offensive team in the league.
  8. If I had to put money on who is more likely to leave, it’s Quinn. At some point in their careers, the Hughes brothers would want to play together, whether it’s here or somewhere else remains to be seen.
  9. How so? When Linden took over, the team had no direction and was a total mess. Hampered with NTC, aging stars, and a shallow prospect pool. He drastically improved the scouting system by hiring a former scout as GM and promoted Brackett. Signed one of the top FA in Ryan Miller, and while Willie D was somewhat a disappointment. He did improve the team standings by 20 points from the previous year and revitalize the Sedins’ career. As for other teams asking for his service? Maybe he just wants to step away from hockey and enjoy life as it is? He got a young son now,
  10. Even if they were losing on purpose. No one is going to admit it, especially to the media.
  11. You clearly missed the focal point of the argument. You said, the problem was hiring Linden, because he had no prior front office experience. Lou also didn’t have any experience prior to being hired by the Devils in 1989. Yet, he still was successful at building that dynasty team despite being a “rookie” president. Like the old saying goes, we all gotta start somewhere.
  12. Yes. Neither of them had previous NHL front office experience before taking the job. Linden was also the president for the NHLPA for quite sometime.
  13. You know who else had no previous experience? Lou Lamoriello and he built that New Jersey dynasty team.
  14. Beagle was brought in to win faceoffs and kill penalties. I knew the day he signed that contract, it was a horrendous deal, especially for a guy who was pushing 34 yrs old. But hey, who cares right? Because he won a Cup and we had cap space, at that time
