  1. LGD Just please, fvcking win.
  2. Heads need to roll after that game. I don't fvcking give a sh!t anymore.
  3. Bratt has been awesome to start this year, what a goal
  4. I can't wait for Knights/Sharks games this year.
  5. My point is Rooney, a player who has next to no positive metrics, is taking away a roster spot from one of our best prospects, regardless of position. Rooney's numbers last season are also pitiful, but I brought up his preseason numbers to illustrate he wasn't significantly good enough to "earn" his spot. Yes, a replacement level player is who you want as your 13th forward anyways, but we have Hayden for that role. I don't see any benefit to having Kevin Rooney on our roster, especially when it's likely going to handcuff us from giving Smith the 9 game trial if management is against moving on from Mueller/Carrick.
  6. I'm so annoyed that Rooney is going to be in this lineup to start the year. He did nothing to earn a roster spot and it's going to come at the expense of likely Smith. Preseason CF: 38.67% (-8.38% Relative) Preseason FF: 38.60% (-7.39% Relative) Preseason SF: 37.21% (-8.97% Relative) Preseason GF: 33.33% (-18.84% Relative) Preseason SCF: 32.26% (-16.32% Relative) He sucks. He doesn't belong anywhere near an NHL roster.
  7. Fully agreed here. Ty has accomplished just about all he can in Junior, I don't think another year in the WHL would help him at all. Now, that doesn't mean he should be on the team for the full season automatically, but I feel like he should get the 9 game look because of that. He looked better the past couple games, and since it's either WHL or NHL this year with no in between, I think he needs the extra 9 games to prove he either does or does not belong this year.
  8. For NHL.tv, if you have access to a VPN you can bypass the blackout restrictions on there using that. That method only works for desktop and Fire Stick though, haven't been able to get that method to work on my iPad or phone.
  9. I believe I saw on the Devils website that the game will be available on NHL.tv, but only in the local market. From what I can see, it'll be available on the Devils website and NHL.tv
  10. Greene, Mueller, and Carrick were all so, so bad last night. I was honestly stunned by how horrible that trio played last night, it was really ugly. Thought that was by far Ty's best game of the preseason, thought Tennyson actually played quite well as well. Wood's best game of the preseason as well, Nico, Boqvist, and Coleman looked good. It was absolute garbage day for Rooney, Hayden, Bastian, and McLeod last night, they all sucked, which is unfortunate because I've actually liked Hayden and McLeod to this point.

  12. https://www.tsn.ca/video/insider-trading-will-point-s-deal-lead-to-other-rfa-s-signing-quickly~1787114 Darren Dreger: "Taylor Hall's agent, Darren Ferris, met with the GM of the New Jersey Devils, Ray Shero, over the weekend and it sounds like they're making some traction there. Now, you have to keep in mind Taylor Hall is coming off a significant injury; he loved the way he was treated by the Devils organization, very professional from start to finish. He likes what Shero has done and the changes he has made to the lineup of the New Jersey Devils, so it's one of those situations: it could get done sooner than later, which is saying a lot, considering he's in the final year of his contract."
  13. Based on what we saw today in the scrimmage and practice sessions, this seems like what the coaching staff is looking at for the start of the regular season, or close to it: Hall - Hischier - Palmieri Gusev - Hughes - Simmonds Boqvist - Zajac - Bratt Wood - Zacha - Coleman Hayden/Rooney Vatanen - Subban Greene - Severson Smith - Butcher Mueller, Carrick This could all obviously be completely shuffled up by next week, but I love that 3rd line with Zajac between the two Jespers. Zajac can be the responsible two-way guy on the line while Boqvist and Bratt both bring a ton of skill and creativity to the line. Really hope Boqvist can find a way to stick on this team, started out camp nicely today with a couple goals in the scrimmage.
  14. With training camps officially going across the league, felt like a good time to get this up. Welcome back, hockey, I missed you so much. So, there's a few outlets that are reporting the Marner saga is picking up some traction towards a solution. Nothing imminent, but they're progressing. Super interested to see how this all ends since it has so much implications for RFAs across the league: Some of the stuff thrown around lately has been absurd, despite how good Marner is. $9.5M x 3 years totally defeats the purpose of a bridge, and he reportedly declined the Tavares contract back in July.
  15. I wouldn’t really call Wood’s contract “bad,” the going rate for a 15 goal scorer I would imagine is around $2M, so I’d really only say Wood is overpaid by about $0.75M, which is really about the cost of a replacement level player. We’re not having any issues with signing guys and with the cap going up over the next couple years, I’m not too fussed over Wood’s contract. If he’s the worst contract we got up front, we’re in pretty good shape.
