  1. Completely agree. If not McLeod then several of the other young guys. Feel like Wood's time here might be coming to a close. Probably are a lot of teams out there that highly value what he brings.
  2. I'll wait to see him in some regular season games before trying to judge that. Could've been going at 80% out there for all we know.
  3. Travis Zajac: 54 Nico Hischier: 48 Jack Hughes: 46 Mackenzie Blackwood: 45 Taylor Hall : 38 (-1) Kyle Palmieri: 3 (+1) ELIMINATED: John Hayden  Mirco Mueller  Kevin Rooney  Miles Wood Connor Carrick Wayne Simmonds Andy Greene Sami Vatanen Cory Schneider Will Butcher Pavel Zacha Nikita Gusev Damon Severson Jesper Boqvist Blake Coleman Ty Smith Jesper Bratt P.K. Subban
  4. While I certainly wouldn't mind the opportunity to keep Heiskanen in that 4th slot - I agree it makes sense to start it next offseason so people can prepare to do so during this season.
  5. Travis Zajac: 49 Nico Hischier : 48 Jack Hughes: 48 Mackenzie Blackwood: 47 Taylor Hall : 38 Kyle Palmieri: 2 (+1) P. K. Subban : 2 (-1) ELIMINATED: John Hayden  Mirco Mueller  Kevin Rooney  Miles Wood Connor Carrick Wayne Simmonds Andy Greene Sami Vatanen Cory Schneider Will Butcher Pavel Zacha Nikita Gusev Damon Severson Jesper Boqvist Blake Coleman Ty Smith Jesper Bratt _______________________________________________________________________________________ I won't let you guys take Palms out without a fight. He's a long timer that's been loyal over the last few awful years - won't let a new guy last past him if I can help it!
  6. Was it Simmonds that had a banana peel thrown at him not-too-long-ago during a game in Europe? This ugly sh!t still manages to exist and, without getting too political, the last few years seems to have given them more confidence to act this way in public. Don't think it'll fly in our arena if an opposing fan says something ignorant about Simmonds or Subban. I don't think you have to give some of our fans much of a reason to hand out a beating.
  7. Man I'm a Podcast fiend.. whenever I'm in the car I'm usually listening to a Podcast. Makes the unbearable commute around Philly slightly more.. well, tolerable. Anyway, my Hockey related Podcasts (in no order): Spittin Chiclets Banter is hilarious (though sometimes pretty low-brow), and they get some top-notch interviews where players really let their hair down. Steve Dangle Podcast Toronto-centric Podcast that I mainly listened to over the summer to hear them freak the fvck out about the Marner situation. Devils Daily Offseason stuff was.. meh. I probably only listen to parts of every other episode or so. Hosts occasionally offer some interesting insight. 31 Thoughts Really enjoy this one. Friedman and Marek are fun to listen to and they get some solid interviews as well. Friedman's takes can be a little.. spicy.. at times, but overall it's interesting. Puck Soup Previous co-host left last year, was replaced by Sean McIndoe (Down Goes Brown) and Ryan Lambert (meh). They only publish like once every other week or so now but they have a good thing going and it's been interesting to listen to. The Bobcast This one might have concluded, but the Bobfather is the man. Often talks about subjects not related to hockey. The Hockey News Podcasts Occasional listen, absurd takes all around from these guys. Kinda cements the fact that THN is a joke. I sometimes fast forward to the last 10 minutes for FHL tips (but don't tell the other guys here that) Hockey Central at Noon Remains to be seen how this one shakes out with the staff overhaul. The Hockey PDO Cast I only check this one out if a particular subject or interview sounds interesting. Very technical, often focuses on advanced stats The above said - I do not listen to every episode of every Podcast obviously. But I like variety during my commutes and the above mix hits the spot.
  8. Ty looks green, as expected, but I think the talent is clearly there.
  9. Oh fvck me, yuck. Physically cringed just watching that, no thank you. Nope.
  10. Big fan. +1000. Nothing more freakin' frustrating than having a player listed as "out" for months taking up a roster spot.
  11. Shoot you are correct - that's my bad. Yeah go ahead and make it the 19th, sorry about that. Should've verified before posting.
  12. I kinda like that their first meeting will be in a regular season game that matters. That said, I fully expect Kakko to light us up tonight and send the facebook fans into a frenzy.
  13. Ah is that the same one that had us shipping four 1st round picks to the Jets for Laine? Yeahhhhhhhhh I dunno about that site. Edit: Plus the guy averages <10 goals and 35 points a season more or less.. uhh offensive defenseman?
  14. Nico Hischier : 49 Travis Zajac: 48 (-1) Mackenzie Blackwood: 47 (Restored) Jack Hughes: 47 Taylor Hall : 37 Kyle Palmieri : 3 (+1) P. K. Subban : 3 ELIMINATED: John Hayden  Mirco Mueller  Kevin Rooney  Miles Wood Connor Carrick Wayne Simmonds Andy Greene Sami Vatanen Cory Schneider Will Butcher Pavel Zacha Nikita Gusev Damon Severson Jesper Boqvist Blake Coleman Ty Smith Jesper Bratt
  15. Big Buff apparently contemplating retirement. I think he'd be leaving a hell of a lot of money on the table. I doubt the Jets want to lose him, but it would solve their cap problems as far as getting one/both of Laine and/or Connor signed.
  16. Ahh I saw Ole being used in 2007-2008 and figured R&R didn't make a return until after that. sh&#33;t.
  17. I did some very quick searching on Youtube and it appears that the chant came to be during the 2008-2009 season.
  18. Well one down - trade to announce: Zajac-ing Off (I'll update the name once the season starts, I promise ) is sending Hellebuyck + 20th rounder to Miles Wood Fightclub for 6th rounder.
  19. So I have two guys that I think some folks may be interested in before we lock keepers up next week: Jake Guentzel, coming off a 40-goal season. Ranked a top-40 player, probably projects to be a 3rd round pick in our league with keepers considered. Connor Hellebuyck, ranked the 7th best available goalie in our league after a down-ish year with the Jets. Probably projects to be a... 4th to 6th round pick in our league? Maybe earlier - always interesting to see when goalies start flying off the board. I think he's due for a bounce-back year - seems like a guarantee for 35+ wins if he stays healthy. Both can be had for picks, since my keepers are set. Feel free to shoot me a message here or in FHL if interested.
  20. Starting to wonder about our logjam of forwards - it's a good problem to have but there doesn't seem to be enough space for everyone. Let's state the obvious: Hall - Nico - Palms Gusev - Hughes - Simmonds Boqvist - Zajac - Bratt Wood - Zacha - Coleman Other notables: Hayden, Anderson, Bastian, McLeod Our 4th line could have, and would have, passed as our 3rd line in previous years. Feels like a waste to have all three of those players seeing minimal minutes. Seems like an obvious situation where Shero could maybe acquire a comparable defenseman for one/several of the bolded guys.
  21. Also completely missed the Hughes celly. Probably not the A-team tonight in the broadcast department
