Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

I don't think there's ever been a GM in history that has done as much unintentional damage to a franchise in such a short period of time. Chiarelli actually started his tenure inheriting a pretty full cupboard with a number of 1st overall picks and other high first rounders already there. Then a gen...

Re: 2016 NHL ENTRY DRAFT

Also, it's very reasonable to assume management looked at the bare cupboards and lack at every position and waivered from BPA. With JV and Brock already in the system, do you grab another winger or try to fill up in much more dire positions like centers and defencemen with your 1st round pick? This...

Re: 2016 NHL ENTRY DRAFT

I think people should just admit that Tkachuk is exactly the type of top six we need in the line up. I think its fair to say a do over would be nice. However, having said that, we still need to see if Juolevi develops into a top four dman for us, or becomes a blue chip trade prospect now that we ha...

Obviously Jimbro was the brains in building that Cup team in Boston.

Brains Benning. :)
Looking more and more like it, innit?

This is the time for Jimbro to apply the finishing move on his old boss.

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 18-19 Sponsored by SKYO

One thing we all agree on: POO STINKS AND NEEDS TO BE FLUSHED I've seen a little improvement - he's getting more solid in the back end . Still, I'm not expecting much (anything) for a return when he's flushed. He get backed up all the way to Utica . Sounds like the turtle head hasn't quite poked ou...

1-2 years is here Reefer - your thoughts This is an easy one, you are still drunk or still strung out on cocaine. So RD, between us 9 billion friends which one is it?

Re: GDT:Jan 20/19 Wings @ Canucks. 1:00 PM SN

How often has Stetcher played more when all 3 right-side Dmen were healthy? The last 2 games only? When Tanev and Edler were both injured, who assumed top-pairing duties? Not Troy-boy, that's for sure. The last 2 games have also seen some of the worst, most lopsided stats against. Possession, CF, 5v...

Hey! NILander breaks out of his slump with an assist... in another Leaves loss. Sweet homecoming for Matthews.

Where art thou, Tuner?

Re: GDT:Jan 20/19 Wings @ Canucks. 1:00 PM SN

Actually, it was asshole Jake with the crosscheck on Nielsen that led to the goal. But yeah, Stetcher always needs a forward to bail him out of his bad pinches. It wouldn't be an issue if he actually generated any kind of offense. And putting Troy with Edler doesn't mean he's better, it means Green ...

Yup. I mentioned moving Sutter. Teams like Pittsburgh are dying to shore up their 3rd line center spot for the playoffs. They want to move on from Brassard.

I'd say Asshole Jake kind of got away with one. But it all evens up in the end.

Re: GDT:Jan 20/19 Wings @ Canucks. 1:00 PM SN

Biega's numbers are terrible at just 13 minutes a game. Has he ever been a regular NHLer? No. There's a reason for that.

You can hate on Gudbranson all you want but Biega is not better than any regular defenseman in the NHL and never will be.
