  1. Should I be the first to use the dreaded word(well, phrase)? Isn't this clear cap circumvention? Acquiring injured players in order to LTIR them? Have we done something this blatant? Maybe Matvichuk or some of the older guys that Lou somehow jettisoned, but still.
  2. This please. I actually like the guy.
  3. I mean, they aren't acting differently than any predecessors. Praising the veterans is really nothing new, especially the color guy. Chico on the radio is a breath of fresh nostalgia if you guys need that. I could do without Loughlin though.
  4. Lovejoy needs to stop being manhandled behind the net.
  5. Still kind of in this camp, but boy....he seems really done. I can't remember a single game Schneider has played in this season where he didn't allow 2 goals in the first period of every game he's played this year. It's looked so bad.
  6. Kinkaid's save percentage was a 94.9% coming into tonight. He just blanked the Stars. Ohhh boy.
  7. Missed the damn first half. Kinkaid looking good and I'm hoping Butcher is alright too.
  8. Yeah definitely, props to Orlov for the hit. Respeckt
  9. Looked clean to me. I'm with Dano & Cangi, Taylor Hall doesn't get hit like that often...too speedy.
  10. Not as much as Auston Matthews and JT to start the season. 8 and 6 goals respectively to start the year. It looks like at least 2 elite centers is the norm now plus another elite wing or two is a must if you're going to compete with Toronto. I can't believe I'm typing that. Hopefully Palms keeps it up!
  11. Not an insult. You're just chirping at people all the time. It's funny. See below.
  12. Holy sh!t boys. They are blowing up the reigning Cup Champs. Good sign in my book. It's 25-11 in shots. Palms has 4 in 2. This is gonna be a good one.
  13. If someone finds a link, pls let me know.
  14. Real test for Noesen on that second line with Zacha and Johansson.
  15. I'm locked behind a paywall for NHL Network for some reason? Anyone else experiencing this? 3rd line had a nice shift in the O zone.
  16. I'm happy for the kid (if he makes it). I didn't realize he was still so young because he's been a part of the organization for so long. Only 22. Persistence, persistence, persistence. He's probably in the A right now if Maroon re-signs here, but props to that kid for working his tail off through camp.
  17. I thought the top 6 actually looked really good tonight. Wood, Zacha, Zajac, the top line, the 2nd line all looked pretty good tonight. The defense was moving the puck really well, I thought Butcher looked fantastic out there with Vatanen and even Lovejoy looked pretty good out there with him. Lots of stuff to like in tonight's game. I can see Qville making the team but it's looking like he'll be 13 and Rooney might make the team as he's been used an awful lot on the PK. He's a pretty decent replacement for what Gibbons did last season. If he makes the team, he's earned it. Same with Q as he's looked good, has been getting chances, has been pushing play forward when he's out there. The Zacha line looked very good, cycling well and moving the puck around the O-zone very quickly. Zacha had an A+ chance on the shorty, but he shanked it high. The Hischier line looked very tough to play against tonight too. There were long stretches of the 3rd period where we really kept them hemmed into their zone. Hynes will be pretty happy about this win after the close games we've had. The boys earned the W tonight. Kinkaid looked alright, could have been better, but I'm pretty confident with our top 6 going into the start of the season despite having my doubts about Johansson-Zacha-Bratt.
  18. Use the NHL Streams reddit. Best place to find anything. Interesting to see Smith and Noesen out of the lineup.
  19. Season hasn't even started yet and now they're telling everyone? These kinds of time missed are suppose to happen in between seasons.
  20. This. I was trying to say the bolded in my post too. A no-move clause would be a very weird thing to be asking for at this age. I could see that falling under philosophical differences if either A) Shero doesn't offer no-movements or B.) He believes that no-moves should be players at a certain age or something. That's a good guess.
  21. On average, everyone thinks they are worth more than what they actually produce. Given Wood's numbers this past year, he simply has a lot of bullet points that I'm sure he and his agent sat down and went through what to present to Shero. He has a lot of talking points and I never knew that Shero was much of a stickler in this regard. I give Shero props. My guess is that he knows where he sees various players fit and maybe he doesn't see Wood as a top 6 goal scoring sniper and sees more of a top 9 speedster. You don't pay the top 9 speedy player Palmieri money. Maybe Shero says that he can't promise ice-time and because he can't promise ice-time, he can't gauge or see the worth in paying Wood Palmieri style money. Palmieri is a steal for his skillset and we're lucky he didn't cost us more. Wood has to understand that he's behind a number of players on the left side. Just to name all of them, Hall, Johansson, Bratt. Bratt plays the right but he's doing that out of lack of RWs. The RW depth is Palmieri, Noesen, (Lappin). We already have a good deal of left-handed shots. And all of that isn't to mention what Wood's value on the trade market is, which is likely sh!te. He's not Filip Forsberg.
