  1. I’ve only seen highlights, but he’s a big kid who seems to know how to use his size and has some meanness to his game. This team hasn’t had too much of that in a while and it’ll be needed.
  2. I don’t think anyone is too upset with 7 when we went in with #6. A lot of talent will be around at 7, plus we could get something in the 8-10 range and late teens depending how this plays out. What’s upsetting is that a team that was shoehorned into the “play-in” will now have a better shot at the #1 pick than teams that weren't given a shot at a play in. Any team given the opportunity to play in should immediately have been removed from top 3 contention.
  3. I'm excited and all but the fact that you can get a shot at the cup AND a shot at the #1 pick is ridiculous.
  4. I still have a Sanderson Jackets replica jersey that I bought randomly back in the day. I thought it looked cool. Crazy to think his kid is about to be drafted
  5. The article talks about Brylin and Elias who were early 90's Devils picks and made a similar transition to North American hockey. They are now 2 of the people helping Gusev with a similar adjustment. Therefore benefiting Goose.
  6. That's a fun podcast. Cam has some real great stories. One of my favorites is when he was in the AHL and someone changed his contacts and put Lou's number under his drinking buddy's name. Cam calls his buddy to go get hammered after a game and its a very unhappy Lou on the other end
  7. Theoretically the lowest that pick could be is 13, and that's only if 3 teams behind them all won lottery picks. The chances of that are very very low
  8. To be fair, that tag is on every coach until they win it. Trotz could never get his teams over the hump either until he did. That being said, I'd prefer Gallant, Lav, or Montgomery depending on where he is with everything
  9. I'm actually reading the autobiography he was writing when he died. I'll have to check out the documentary. I saw that the Grant Fuhr one is in prime too
  10. I'm watching the game on MSG+ from 1998 because I couldn't sleep. Its fun to watch a little hockey from way back when I was a teen. I always forget how great of a puck handler Marty was. I'm amazed more goalies don't make that a bigger part of their game. here's what the team looked like if anyone was wondering: Sykora-Arnott-Andreychuck Elias-Holik-McKay Rolston-Carpenter-Thomas Brylin-Pederson-Oliwa Stevens-Odelein Neidermayer-Bodger Daneyko-Souray Brodeur Dunham I'm guessing Gilmour was injured at this time. Zubrus was on the Flyers at this point and former number one overall pick Alexander Daigle scored while I was watching.
  11. Not sure where to put this, but they are pulling out some old ones for this week.
  12. I can't see us possibly being that lucky again, but id take it in a heartbeat. The rest of the league would lose their minds which would make it even better
  13. I think this whole thing is going to teach a lot about what is actually a necessity and what we just do because “that’s the way it is”
  14. Domi’s elbow to Niedermayer negates anything he says about anyone playing dirty ever. There’s a reason Scotty lifted cups and Domi never did a thing other than punch people. You can't cry about dirty play when your locker room had Corson, Tucker, Belak and notorious knee-on-knee hitter Marchment.
  15. Yeah this for sure. This is what they do, and it will be a welcome return to "normal" for everyone
  16. That bum should learn to pass. Wait...
  17. I work for a small family business. We've had one order today. I have to think a lot of small companies are experiencing the same problem and unfortunately many will close.
  18. This is what happens when you take hockey away https://www.narcity.com/news/ca/sk/coronavirus-vaccine-made-in-saskatchewan-is-now-in-the-testing-stages
  19. From stay I’ve read, Italy's higher death rate is connected to having an older population and a delayed response before finally locking down. This is not anything I read from medical professionals though, it was theorized so I'm not stating it as any type of fact.
  20. I'm not joking when I say this, but I wonder what the wording is on that Vancouver pick. If the season is canceled, and they are in a playoff spot does that count as qualifying for the playoffs?
  21. I should have known not to mess with the master of the things.
  22. I don’t disagree with that at all. I absolutely hate where the franchise is and has been for a while now. I really did believe in Shero right up until the beginning of the season, then it all went Ka-blewie and his response was very underwhelming. This season is done. We are only playing these games because we have to. At least you come at the issue with stats and points about Hughes’ line mates. There can at least be a discussion even if people don’t agree, even though some people disagree on the defensive side. But what people are complaining about is the Daniel hysteria. If I can go Sterio for a second... It’s like the air conditioner is stuck on and one guy is screaming that we’re all about to freeze to death.
  23. You don't draft a player for how good they are. You draft them because of the player you feel they have the potential to become. While I'm disappointed in Hughes' first season, I see no reason to think he's done developing at 18 years of age. This has been a fairly miserable season. I don't know why some people are intent on making it even more miserable.
