  1. I know they get a lot of crap but I really hope that Arizona gets the deal for a new arena in Tempe. They would kill it there. There are hockey fans in Arizona but they’ve been fed a sh!t product out in the middle of nowhere for way too long. That franchise got totally screwed when the voters of Scottsdale approved funding for a new arena and then the local government nixed it. They would have thrived in that part of the city. Glendale was a panic move that they are still paying for.
  2. Ottawa has an agreement for a new downtown arena. That’s great for them because their current arena situation sucks. Cookie cutter building way outside of downtown.
  3. Hopefully Colorado fans are all jacked up to win the cup at home on Friday, they come out and dominate the first 10 minutes, including getting a goal that gets called back and then give up a totally deflating goal from the blue line and things just snowball on them from there.
  4. Nice response by Tampa but if Kucherov is hurt, I don’t know how they win this if both he and Point are out or at least severely limited. Game 4 feels like a must win for both teams.
  5. I think they’ll probably manage to split at home but this series just looks different. Colorado is scary good. Imagine if Byram keeps getting better.
  6. I was thinking the same thing. If he does good for him but just like Nickhuskin, the team that drafted him never had a chance of reaping the full rewards of their talent
  7. One other point is that if you include the #2 in the upcoming draft, we have three top 10 picks on board that are not yet on the roster. Assuming Slaf is the pick, all three address major holes in the roster when they do arrive, if they pan out of course. The Devils are far from a finished product that is just wildly underachieving. At least with respect to the prospects, I think Fitz has done a nice job taking a long term approach and not rushing guys up We're actually at the point where we have a pretty deep prospect pool and these type trades can make a lot more sense than when Shero was doing them. I don't know if Palmieri qualifies as falling short of his draft position but imagine if we could land that type of player now for just a 2nd and 3rd?
  8. This has been a hell of a game so far. I was hoping for a late goal to avoid staying up for OT but oh well.
  9. Closest I can think of is Marian Hossa losing with the Pens, then the Wings and going a third straight with the Blackhawks but thankfully the Hawks beat the Flyers
  10. That’s a good read. Thanks.
  11. Hopefully only one more period of this nightmare.
  12. Jesus, I hope that isn't true that he passed.
  13. Nevermind then. As you were . Still prefer Palat assuming a lesser price point
  14. Getting a C like Johnny Hockey would be a luxury given that we already have two really good young centers, not a necessity. This feels like it would be repeat of the mistake that Toronto made signing Tavares when they already had Matthews and Kadri who at the time was putting up 30 goal seasons at 2C. There were a lot of subsequent management mistakes up there but ultimately IMO the Tavares contract is the biggest reason they lost a lot a really good players over the next several season. The exact type of players they seem to lack every year come playoff time. Connor Brown, Kadri, Hyman, etc.
