    Unfortunately Ottawa's Owner has put them in a situation where getting a guy like Boedker was actually a positive for them since he has a fairly big cap hit to help keep them above the floor with much less cash actually owed. The Sens do seem to be in a race with Montreal for the last 12 months to see who can burn their roster down to the ground faster. It will really suck for Ottawa next year when the Avs select Jack Hughes with the pick Dorion sent them to "upgrade" from Turris to Duchene.

    On the surface this seems like a really good deal for the Coyotes. Watch Galchenyuk instantly go back to 30 goals out of the spotlight and on the wing in Arizona. Not sure what Montreal is doing. Domi is a decent talent but all you hear is that they need scoring and they need centers. Domi is a winger who has scored 9 goals each of the last two seasons and last year, 4 of them were with the goalie pulled. I guess this means they’ll probably reach for that Finnish C at the #3 pick in draft instead of taking Zadina as well.

    Hopefully Texas can find a way to steal one more so Leafs fans don’t have another reason to be yelling “best pipeline ever, eh!” to anyone who will listen.

    Hmm, thanks for the clarification. I had to work late last night and was streaming some radio station in Canada that was talking hockey and they mentioned it. Oh well, we all know it's coming anyway.

    Ray Ferraro just said Erik Karlsson has officially requested a trade. Get 'er done Ray!

    It would be a lot easier to believe Hoffman's denials if his girlfriend didn't look like the classic cartoon villain.

    Even if you're getting a huge bargain, do you even want to bring that into your locker room? I just saw Andrew Hammonds wife tweeted that this isn't surprising, so it sounds like at a minimum, the Hoffman's aren't well liked <--- understatement.

    Whoa. I just saw the Hoffman story. That's f'ing bizarre. I don't really have much else to add.

    You keep saying he bombed out in the 3rd round last year. My recollection was that he had one marginal game once Murray was healthy and Sullivan used that as an excuse to go back to his guy.

    All the games in Vegas have been awesome. Games in Washington, not so much

    The first 10 minutes will be critical. I expect they'll make a huge push at the beginning just like last game. If it's still 0-0 or if Washington manages to pop a goal like they did on Monday right after the James Neal miss, it's probably goodnight. I still don't know how Vegas wasn't up at least 2-0 in Game 4 heading into that 1st period penalty kill where Oshie eventually scored.

    GTFO. He'll go right back to the same player he's always been as soon as he has a new contract and starts next season. These writers have too much time on their hands with two off days between each game.
  14. What’s your max offer for Tavares

    Yeah, you have a point with Toews but even then, I see the Seabrook contract as the killer. Kane is worth every penny
  15. What’s your max offer for Tavares

    I know this wasn’t necessarily your point but that sounds a hell of a lot better than “Taylor is twice as good as any other Devil not on his ELC so surely he is worth 11.5” If we get in trouble with the cap during Halls and Tavares prime, I doubt that they’ll be the contracts we’re worried about. It’s always the overpaid secondary guys
