  1. Habs are my 2nd favourite team. I shut the TV off as the clock was winding down because I couldn't see what came after... I haven't been able to find a clip showing the players going to Weber after the game ended to console him. Do you (or anyone for that matter) have a link you can share?
  2. Very good to hear about Drouin. They certainly could have used him in the final if he was at the top of his game - I was still holding on hope that he might come back out of nowhere but I knew it was a longshot. Really sad news about Weber Weber was probably my favourite player in the NHL for the past 15 years. I already got his Habs jersey. There were rumours back in the day that he could have ended up on the Canucks, but it never came to pass. That would have been the most joyous day of my Canucks fandom. I was ecstatic when he went to my 2nd favourite team. Wish the
  3. I know what you're saying, if we had Forsling we would be cup contenders. AND Forsling, the stout shutdown Dman that he is, would have replaced Edler's minutes. Hope this helps.
  4. Most adults have jobs therefore are associated with their company in some way, but not everyone is a spokesperson for their company. What you're saying is if you're a public figure, you can't have your own personal opinion on things. Why? It doesn't mean it's your employer's stance on the matter, unless the person is actually the spokesperson or explicitly states that they are sharing their company's views on a certain matter. The scenario you're proposing can be resolved with a public statement from the business saying that the views shared by that individual are not reflective of
  5. I wear a mask everywhere I go and will continue to do so. People should wear masks. Store owners have the right to refuse giving their business to people not wearing masks. I think protesters are dead wrong about this issue. But above all, people have the right to express their opinion without fear of their livelihood being stripped. This is not a baked goods store that didn't want to give you a cupcake because you're not wearing a mask. A man lost his livelihood because of an opinion. This is not a democratic state. It's very dangerous grounds. I hope none of you find yourselves in a position
  6. Let's gooooo!! Excited to see what Jake can do with a little fire burning in him. If that doesn't get him going I don't know what will.
  7. And Panarin and Pastrnak are known for their defense? Ovi is the best consistent goal scorer the game has ever seen and he's been doing it for 15 years. There has to be some respect given there. You can put Crosby ahead of Ovi if you want (and over their respective careers, sure I'd probably take Crosby over Ovi), but for this past year I would have taken Ovi over Crosby. They barely squeaked him in at #15 on their list...
  8. Hedman needs to be in the top 5 for me. My top 5: 1. McDavid 2. Mackinnon 3. Ovechkin (a toss up between top 3) 4. Crosby 5. Hedman Ovechkin was on pace for 58 goals over 82 games as a 35 year old in the NHL while hitting anything that moves. How this man was not included in the top 3 let alone top 5 is asinine. It's downright proof of the anti-Russian stance in the NHL.
  9. I've mentioned it before but to me he's a more physically gifted Alex Burrows. Very similar attitude as well from his on-ice play. Really good complementary player who will do the dirty work and put up some points if you put him with good players, but will be just as effective playing in the bottom 6 and providing leadership and grit there. From the eye test, he seems to me like he'd be the perfect RW for Horvat. I see him clicking very well with Horvat and Pearson if he gets the chance to play there. He's a horse along the walls, and likes to get in the forecheck. Puck hound type, and if he i
  10. For people who are interested, I compared some of Hughes's advanced metrics to Sergachev's, you can see Hughes had a larger impact on the game. When it comes to zone starts the majority of their shifts start in the offensive and neutral zones, with Hughes being relied upon more in the offensive zone so he has the advantage there. But the difference between their defensive zone starts is less than one start per 60 minutes. In every measurable category, Hughes has a more significant impact on the game than Sergachev. Compared to their teammates, Hughes played a more significant role for his team
  11. He's really not... it's based on a Russian site that greatly exaggerates player's height/weight. It's worse than the NBA. Somebody posted a few pages back in this thread from a legit source that he's about 6'1".
  12. Some of the intangibles Myers brings. People make fun of Benning for valuing intangibles as much as he does. If Myers gets Jake on track to reach his potential, that's invaluable to this club. The "details" matter.
  13. Sid, I respect your opinion around these parts especially when it comes to assessing prospects. How's Woo's defensive play? Re Brisebois, I'm looking forward to seeing him compete for a spot on the big team
  14. Yes haha the bolded part is what I was asking Hopefully they'll move the deadline due to the adjusted schedule, but I could still see him wanting to finish out what he started with his teammates this year which can't be mad at... Catch 22 really in that scenario.
