    In the regular season + playoffs in the OHL last season, McLeod put up 38 goals and 62 assists for 100 points in 77 GP, and is now the fourth-oldest player on his team...he'll be 20 on 2/3/2018. Sadly we're not going to learn a thing about McLeod this season...he's going to shred it in the O this year.

    Oh I wasn't directing that to you in general, just basically saying a thought out loud and replied to your statement so people knew what I was talking about lol. I just find it interesting whenever I read articles like this that all the focus is the NHL failing its players, but not a single question about the NHLPA and its role in helping these players.

    I wasn't accusing either the NHL or NHLPA of anything...I was just posting the original article, in case anyone wanted to read that too.

    So if the NHL is not helping (supposedly), where is the NHLPA in this? Are they even lifting a finger to help out?

    Kerfoot is also feasting off an unsustainable shooting% (33.3). In 16 out of 19 games he's been held to one shot or less. Not to say he won't be a good player for the Avs, but I wouldn't base any projections re: future production off what he's doing right now. His numbers are ripe for regression. But if one wants to take the viewpoint that this worked out like a Kerfoot-for-Butcher trade, then I'd say it was one that worked out for both teams. I think the Devils needed Butcher more than they needed Kerfoot. And Kerfoot is off to a nice start for the Avs, bloated numbers or not.

    Not even trying to be biased, I'm not sure if Kerfoot makes the opening roster if he signed here. Not really bitter at all about him playing so well for Colorado, good on him for finding a place where he had a better opportunity to make an immediate impact, we got Butcher so all is well with the world, I'd rather have Will.

    When I saw the replay I immediately pulled out my phone and texted my brother "What the fvck was Boyle doing there?" Literally had the exact same reaction.

    Yeah we don't even have room for Zacha**, Quenneville, McLeod, Lappin, Blandisi etc etc with a full lineup ** kind of
  12. 2017-2018 Out of Town Thread

    Really had no room for Kerfoot.

    Very cornerback-like in technique, gotta use the back of the hand to stay in contact..drive the hip with the forearm

    And 8 feet above him! 1. He never did, honestly. That's been the type of player he has always been, he was just forced into a different role by lack of options. 2. He could be healthy scratched a bit right now for Hayes. When Johansson comes back, he would almost have to be the odd man out. 3. If there is anywhere on the ice a slow behemoth like Boyle should not stand, its that exact spot where he was standing. 4. He is exciting, but he also seems to not understand that he can't just wrap his arm around a guy without being penalized for it. He did that twice in last night's game and I was annoyed both times because I knew he was going to do it, I saw it coming and he did exactly as I thought.

    I would have liked them both.

    He has until his senior year to sign, so we have his right for a minimum of 4 years after this year

    I'm a lawyer that's done personal injury cases on both defendants' and plaintiffs' side. All I'll say is that when things look open and shut in press accounts, they're often incomplete to the point of being misleading. In many recent stories about concussions in the NFL or NHL, the stories in the press quote plaintiffs' experts uncritically and without even addressing whether the expert is being paid.

    From 6/1/2016...Branch's original story on Peat: https://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/02/sports/hockey/stephen-peat-nhl-enforcer-concussions-cte-health.html

    John Branch, a sports reporter at The New York Times, has been in sporadic contact via text messaging and email with Walter Peat since writing about him and his son Stephen, a former N.H.L. player. Sad story. The NHL is not looking good here
  21. GDT: 11/20/17 NJ Devils @ Minnesota

    Agreed. Zajac I'll cut some slack for now - hopefully meshes better into the system once he gets his full game back. Boyle... I just don't know. He looks so.. slow..
  22. 2017-2018 Out of Town Thread

    So people are starting to question whether Patrick was deserving of the #2 overall - it's obviously very, very early but it's nice to see people respecting Nico as the bonafide #1 pick in this past draft. If we had gone Patrick... oh man how miserable would we all be right now?

    Aarne Talvitie signed with Penn State. So does he go on the usual college timeline in that he has until after his senior year to sign, or is it all based on age?
  24. GDT: 11/20/17 NJ Devils @ Minnesota

    I feel like our game has taken a hit since Boyle and Zajac both entered our lineup. Shero built this team to be fast and relentless and I feel like they are not built for what this team does. Zajac I agree should be a 3rd line center once Zacha finds his game. And I dunno what to do with Boyle. But the beginning of the season I felt this team was flying without them
  25. GDT: 11/20/17 NJ Devils @ Minnesota

    1) Like Tri, really hoping Zajac is just finding his game, because not only do the Devils sorely need what he can potentially bring, he's also still getting paid pretty handsomely. 2) Agree on Stafford, looks like he's on his way to Healthyscratchland at this rate. 3) I see a narrative forming that Schneider is somehow unclutch, but I really think he's a product of a lot of mess in front of him. Wild were friggin' all over the Devils once it became a 3-1 game, and it's not like we haven't seen that before, especially when the other team pulls its goalie. Cory is still above-average, but the guy can only make so many big saves, and he's made plenty. 4) Nice to see one of the youngins developing. We saw how it went with Merrill and Gelinas. I'm still iffy on the Minus Man (Severson), but he's definitely been better this season than last.
  26. GDT: 11/20/17 NJ Devils @ Minnesota

    When the Wild pulled their goalie, Stafford was out there and had 2 incredibly easy (for NHL'ers) plays to clear the puck, but he could not get it under control to do so. And one the first replay of the tying goal, I'm looking at Boyle COMPLETELY screening Schneids and I'm like, "WTF"? He is literally a foot and a half right in front of him. Horrid
  27. GDT: 11/20/17 NJ Devils @ Minnesota

    Hynes only gave stafford 4 shifts in the second, so he's now on notice Boyle is terrible, as a center he hasn't gotten back on defense once in transition That zajac zacha brat move was buffalo peterman bad.. Bratt only got 4 shifts in the 3rd, honeymoon ending
