There's some chatter out there that NJ really likes Provorov. I wouldnt be upset if we picked him.

 

only D I'd take would be Hanifin since he was seen as head and shoulders above the other D until like this week. But if he's gone, Barzal or Crouse or Zacha or whoever, I don't know well enough to know who's the best one so any would be fine with me

I wouldn't be as against Crouse as I was after reading this at puck daddy

He's comparable in one model to Bergeron, Nash and Getzlaf and more of a Lucic (when he's good) than Clarkson

So it looks like 32 teams is a matter of formalities and a few years. I've said for years I really wanted Quebec and Seattle, and to move Columbus or Detroit back to the west, but it seems pretty certain Las Vegas is in. For some reason I thought their ticket drive didn't go as well as hoped, but they're up to 11,500. Quebec's window may have closed, which is sad to me. They had a ton of momentum and fan support, built that stadium, but I think I heard that the Canadian dollar isn't as strong, and Quebec would be the smallest market in the league I believe. Maybe they can still get it done.

 

Moving Columbus west kills them since they're in the eastern time zone and getting more popular with people being able to watch at normal times. Detroit got promised to move east so they aren't going back.

 

Only hope for QC is probably the Coyotes or the Vegas team being a quick disaster like Atlanta became in the last few years

I really hope JG stays. If he does, then 3pm tomorrow will be the start of USC-East. The dawn of a new football power. I wonder when Haskins is going to make a decision.

 

I'm a Rutgers alum, but even if JG comes, Flood hasn't shown the ability to recruit a pair of socks. It'd just be because JG's a legacy and OSU somehow pissed him off
