Re: Early Coaching Change? Yay or Nay.

Well they've completely gutted the development system for the year what with farming players out to Manitoba and letting the Blues stock three-quarters of the Comets roster. That's not big picture view to me, that's Mr Aquilini tightening his belt in an unprecedented tough economic situation. I'm n...

Winnipeg wins this hands down over the next 2 seasons. PLD will play well for them, he got his fresh start, family in the same city..... Laine has 5 months left on his contract. Unless there's an extension looming in the immediate future I can't see him wanting to extend after 50 games under Torts....

Re: Trade Rumours & Armchair Pipe Dreams 20-21 Sponsored by SKYO

I feel like it's a deal neither team won, but I guess that's how it goes when trading disgruntled players.

Somebody said it was the closest to an NBA style trade, and I think that's a good take.

Bo has had a crazy-steady progression - 30 point pace, then 40 point pace, then 50, then 62 , then 60+ last year....

At this rate, he'll be 100+ points in 3 years!

I count five legit top six forwards on Vegas and Stone is one of the best players in the league
Agreed, but I was talking about when Vegas was built through the expansion draft.

Re: Out of Town Scores - 2021

I'd only be interested in the fantasy of what we would have traded Tkurtle for. I don't see that guy as a core piece on a contending team, and I certainly don't see him gelling with the monks on this team.

Re: Canadian Division

[You can't build around third line players. They're trying the Vegas route - built around 3rd liner cast offs. But Vegas acquired 10 third liners all at once, and got very lucky with the performance boosts from top to bottom. I think Montreal is the worst team in the division, but there are so many...

Has Tuna posted since the Leaves were eliminated?

Imagine being an Oilers fan, and seeing McDavid line up with Archibald and Poolyouparty.

To be fair, Olli got walked by 50-goal German. Hell, Edler got the same treatment by McCovid and he regularly gets turnstiled at leats twice a game.

HOGGY!!!
It's too bad - he had a nice takeaway, immediately overshadowed by a tough giveaway

Horvat was hooked as much as McDoofus was there.

This is horseshit. Touch McDavid and it's a trip to the box.

I hope some GM hires a good to simply end the kids career.
We did, his name is Hambone. He's just building up the justifiable provocation.

So far, pretty happy with Holtby.
