  1. Hahaha! Yes Morgan, you are correct! Smart kid.
  2. I thought they would go Nolan all all night, so I was a little surprised by the pick. Happy to have Nico and I trust in our scouts to make the right pick. The look on the faces of those at the Flyers table seemed to be a little disappointed. That or they all need a lobotomy. They certainly didn't seem ecstatic that Nolan fell into their laps.
  3. Works for me, especially if we can get a young D like Murray out of the deal.
  4. He's from Sewell NJ - same area as Johnny Gaudreau. I remember seeing an article from his draft year and he was a Flyers fan growing up.
  5. I started watching and going to games in 1985. I was and still am happy that we switched to the red-black instead of the green, although I really did like having the red-green unis back for select throw back games. I would have liked to see them incorporate the white (home) jerseys from the 1980's into the mix the last few years, but there is no way I would want to change the team's color combo back to red-green. They should be our alternate jerseys and nothing else.
  6. I've heard it mentioned a bunch. He has top athletes all over his family. On top of his father and uncle playing in the NHL, his grandfather played in the CFL and his mother was a top volleyball player who played on the Canadian National Team.
  7. This is the biggest question I have. They are left with Zib and Hayes as their top 2 centers. That's not very good at a critical position for a team that is looking to win now. Overall, I think they got a good return for the 2 guys they traded, but it leaves them with a large hole at the C position.
  8. Wow. Saad goes back to Chicago in exchange for Panarin. Not sure why the Blackhawks would do that trade, but it makes Columbus a little better now. Good trade for them.
  9. I'd go with break something as well. If that does happen, then Shero should quit immediately for his mismanagement of the teams assets.
  10. I have no problem with them ditching the 7:30 Friday games, although that never bothered me personally. I don't like the fact that there are no afternoon weekend games. I always liked them, and thought they were better attended (usually with a larger % of kids) than the night games.
  11. I would agree with this 100%. You are already going to a ton of games over a very short period of time. Skip 1 and enjoy Montreal. It's a great city and awesome hockey atmosphere. That is 1 stop I would definitely do whatever I could to make on this epic trip you are planning. Tickets won't be cheap, but it's worth it.
  12. I admittedly don't know enough about these players to have a true preference. I just hope whoever we select turns into the true No. 1 center we desperately need. Basically saying the Devils will hold onto the pick, unless they don't. Brilliant insight from Dreger!
  13. I love these "experts" saying Shero is listening to offers for the pick. Of course he is. That's his job. It's not like McDavid or Matthews is at the top of the draft and there is basically nothing that could be offered to make him trade the pick. The only GM he immediately hangs up the phone on once he realizes who is on the line is Jeff Gorton from the Rags. This is all fun for discussion, but I don't think there's a chance we trade this pick. Shero has also said that they have made their decision on the pick. It will be interesting to see if word leaks out who it is before the draft starts.
  14. I was thinking the same thing. Doesn't seem to fit our most pressing need unless we then move out Henrique for a D.
  15. I would like to see the Devils try to pry Nate Schmidt out of Vegas. Not sure what it would take, but that could be a good pickup as we revamp or D.
