    2018-19 Around the League Thread

    I think the expansion to Seattle is very exciting for the league, Seattle is a great sports town and I think the NHL is going to do really well there, especially since there's quite a few WHL teams playing in Washington already with the Thunderbirds, Spokane Chiefs, Everett Silvertips, Tri-City Americans, and then the Winterhawks down in Portland. Vegas was the risky expansion move for the NHL, but I think Seattle is a shoe-in success, really excited for 2021.

    LGD, hopefully McLeod can come in and bring some energy and speed while he's out there. I like the message Hynes and the staff are giving him, "Come in and steal someone's job." Letting him know up front, work hard and bring your best and you can hang here, hopefully Mikey makes good on that and brings it tonight.

    2018-19 Around the League Thread

    I've been to hockey events in Buffalo a few times: a Devils game early in the 2015-16 season, the 2016 Draft, and a few games at last year's World Juniors. At least from my impression, the fans in Buffalo were pretty knowledgeable, gracious, and it just seemed like they were dying to finally have a good team to root for, at least those are the fans that I encountered. It could just be me as a Bills fan being happy for the other Buffalo team, but I'm really happy to see the Sabres going on this run. At least all the fans I've encountered, they deserve it, and Jack Eichel also happens to be one of my favorite non-Devils.

    I also posted my first mock draft of the year today as well. Devils would have had the 6th pick if the draft were today, where I had them taking Dylan Cozens. Obviously welcome to take a look if you're so inclined https://ridingpinehockey.com/2018/11/27/2019-nhl-mock-draft-november-27th/

    Nylander's career high is 22 goals and he's coming off back to back 61 point seasons to close his ELC, obviously there is some risk to signing a young kid to that amount of money, but at the very least he seems like someone that can produce at a consistent 60 point pace. Not that it really matters, I'd eat my shoe if we actually traded for Nylander, but going over the what if is still a fun exercise.

    Turcotte reminds me exactly of Zach Parise, he's the same size and plays the same hustle and forecheck style that Zach used to but he doesn't quite have the high end skill like some other guys in this draft do. If we were to target a center early in the draft, I would love to get my hands on Kirby Dach. Zegras and Newhook are arguable as top 5 talents as well, though I wouldn't currently advocate for them that high.

    Don't think we have one of these up yet so I'll take the liberty of doing so considering the spot the team is at. Just posted an article going over my current rankings for the 1st Round of this draft, so if you're interested in reading about some of the top guys here's that for you It's a 5,000+ word article, so if you're looking for a longer read, enjoy https://ridingpinehockey.com/2018/11/26/2019-draft-rankings-first-quarter/

    Would certainly make a lot more sense. Hopefully they grab someone like Mike Futa or Chuck Fletcher instead of Ron Francis, Francis always seemed like a good one in Carolina to me and I wouldn't want to see him with the capital the Flyers have.

    Honestly don't know why Hextall is the one whose head rolls in this scenario (especially before Hakstol), all things considered I think Hextall has done a really good job with the Flyers. Talk about a team that's going to be a murderer's row of players in a couple years, it's unfortunately the Flyers, I really like the players they have coming through the pipeline and the team they have now is pretty good too, albeit underachieving. The only thing I can blame on Hextall is not finding a solution in goal since he got the reigns, although it's always seemed like their plan is to have stopgaps until Carter Hart is ready to go.

    Schneider: done or finished?

    Cory needs his Mojo back, and MoJo needs to get off the Schneid

    I said the same thing regarding Coleman to my brothers just about a week ago, there's a lot of parts to his game that are very Madden-esque and I think he could be a staple in our bottom 6 and be our top penalty killer for a very long time. It's also kind of crazy to think how long he's actually been in the organization, we drafted this guy almost 8 years ago and now he's looking to be a big part of our team the way he's playing. Love me some Blake Coleman.

    Happy to see Zacha back up with the big club, by all indications he played well in Bingo in that stint so hopefully he has some regained confidence coming back. LGD.

    The Coleman one yes, but the other two were assisted by our big guns on the powerplay. We need a 5v5 line to do something outside of Hall-Hischier-Palmieri.

    This team needs a fvcking wake up call. If you play like losers, you're gonna lose, you can't hand in an effort like that and get outworked by Detroit of all teams after you get utterly embarrassed just two nights prior. These guys aren't good enough to win if they're not busting their asses, and it seems like that's been lost over these past few weeks. Also, we need someone other than the top line to step the fvck up. Our secondary scoring is completely absent.

    LGD, really rooting hard for Cory tonight, hope he gets off to a strong start and can regain the form he had at the beginning of last year.
