  1. Oh it's definitely below the KHL, I'd probably put it on par with the AHL. I sounded a bit defensive, but my point is it's a good league even if NHL busts can put up good numbers there
  2. It's like the third best league in the world? I guess no league is a great league except the NHL then. Josefson is chiefly a playmaker and has been getting his points that way. He ran the best powerplay in the league during the first half, same spot on the half wall as he had during his (brief) PP stints in NJ. He just returned after a months absence. Josefson crosschecked a guy, got tripped and fell on the guy's skate blade and busted his urethra. I'm not making this up. There's no point in Zetterlund going over to the AHL next season unless it's Färjestad being stacked on forward and NJ wants to guarantee him icetime to keep him developing. He's not nearly ready to play in the NHL. I can see Boqvist coming over and playing wing. He'll sign with NJ in the summer. He leads the league in ES scoring and will be done with this level after this season is up. His shot and 1on1-game has really improved, does real well off the rush.
  3. If you pin this game on Cory* in any way then you should probably not watch hockey with scuba glasses on. * he is however done as an NHL starter. That much is clear.
  4. I really don't think NJ can pony up what's necessary to get Quenneville. I don't know how long Hynes' extension was, but I assume it's this season and possibly next. You'd be paying Quenneville in the neighbourhood of 4 million (assuming a little paycut from his current deal) + Hynes' salary until he finds a new gig. I don't see NJ being a part of that.
  5. The thing with Hall's season is that it wasn't that much of a change from his norm. He had 45 5v5 points in 17/18, he had 51 in 13/14 in similar time on ice. Where things really happened was on the power play, where he had 36 and his previous career high was 17. I've been on the "unrealistic to expect same/similar"-side of things for much of the summer but I didn't realise how the numbers in the different gamestates broke down. If he's in the same spot on the PP (lots of touches, chief playmaker on the unit) and he's himself at 5v5 with a improved Nico...I think it's quite doable to repeat what he did, or come close.
  6. Sometimes below average dmen play above average for a period of time. Keeping him was a non-starter considering the deal he got from the Bruins. He's getting a 96,7% save percentage while on ice and if there's one thing we learned during his time here, it's that he's not a guy who drives that. At all.

    Under. It's a confidence thing. He didn't unlearn how to hockey and they're not gonna leave him down there until he's ready to be a top-6 forward, because...well, that'll take some time.
  8. 10 ES points for Boqvist, he's been great.

    I don't think he has developed that much slower than many other players, I think he wasn't that good to begin with which was indicated by his lack of scoring prowess vs his peers. I disliked the pick at the time (my tombstone will say "Wanted Mat Barzal") and he was one of two players I thought they 100% shouldn't take at that position (Crouse the other). Before the season I thought the reasonable scenario with him was a 3C going forward and I don't think that window has changed, but if people are hoping for more...well, I admire the positive mindset I guess-
  10. Painting with an extremely broad brush here, but scouts are good at identifying what a player is good/bad at. Weighing those things and valuing them...another thing entirely. Point was passed over because he's small and Tampa's made a killing of drafting small-ish players in later rounds.
  11. IMO the team should move here, 100% winning percentage after all.
  12. PPG players are elite talents.
  13. Uh there's a lot of space between elite talent and third liner. How it's an either or is beyond me.
  14. And all those were surrounded by plenty of controversy when it happened. Why you'd wanna invite that on a team that had nothing but positives last year is beyond me. I honestly doubt the positives would amount to more than a portion of the fanbase being pleased.
  15. I think you guys are making way too big of a deal about the captaincy. Just let Greene play out his deal, probably retire, Hall is the new captain.
