  1. 2018 NHL Draft Thread

    My gut feeling tells me Florida at 15th takes him, haven't really seen that anywhere just my gut. It's possible he falls a bit though because like I write, he is still pretty raw, I think he could boom into a real star though.
  2. 2018 NHL Draft Thread

    Another article comparing Bode Wilde and K'Andre Miller if you'd like to check that out, I've seen a lot of mocks lately of us taking one of these guys so this in particular might be relevant to the Devils https://ridingpinehockey.com/2018/06/19/2018-draft-wilde-vs-miller/

    So the Senators trade Hoffman to the Sharks, only for the Sharks to turn around and get a WAY better return on him. L-O-fvcking-L.
  4. 2018 NHL Draft Thread

    If you're interested, I took a deeper dive into comparing Denisenko and Kravtsov, the top two players coming out of the KHL-VHL-MHL system this year. Includes some plays of theirs I've clipped as well, if you want to check it out https://ridingpinehockey.com/2018/06/18/2018-draft-denisenko-vs-kravtsov/ Also planning on doing an article like this on Wilde vs Miller and Dobson vs Bouchard before Friday, so if you're interested in that I'll post those as well.

    Bob McKenzie's final rankings for TSN just came out, always find these the most insightful because they're compiled by polling scouts from NHL teams https://www.tsn.ca/kotkaniemi-surges-into-top-five-of-tsn-draft-ranking-1.1115400 If the Rangers get Oliver Wahlstrom, I will be very sad.

    Skylands is where my team practiced when I played in high school. Always despised seeing Rangers sh!t around the rink, fvck that.
  7. 2018 Offseason Thread

    I was under the impression that Ottawa had until the day of the draft to notify Colorado, but I may be wrong. I was listening to the 31 Thoughts podcast today and Friedman was still discussing the Ottawa situation as if the Sens still had the option of surrendering this year's pick instead of next year's, but again he might be mistaken as well.
  8. 2018 Offseason Thread

    If Ottawa is as bad next year as we're expecting them to be, they would probably end up at 4th or 5th again anyways if they lose the lottery, so they would be at square one and get a prospect of similar quality without risking giving away a franchise center prospect in Jack Hughes. To me it's a no-brainer, but it is Ottawa we're talking about.

    Thanks man really appreciate it The upside of Smith and Merkley with their skating and offensive awareness is really exciting to me, if they boom they're really going to blossom into stars. At the same time, I like Farabee and he has some offensive qualities that are quite Parise-like but in general he doesn't have the offensive tools that excite me like some of the guys I have ahead of him (namely Denisenko, Kupari, Bokk, Kravtsov), which is why I have him slid just a little further back to 19th even though I see him most likely being gone before 15 or 16.
  10. What’s your max offer for Tavares

    It's probably just important for him to someday feel like he was the main reason the Isles got to the promised land rather than parachute on to a team that already has some stars in place. I agree the Isles have been a sh!t show the past couple decades, but some players just want to feel like they helped build something, just like OEL signing his extension with that mess of a team in Arizona.

    It’s sounding a lot like Zadina is gonna fall to that 4 spot, and as much as I like Zadina, you can’t risk giving up Jack Hughes next year who by my judgement is probably on the same level as Auston Matthews and Jack Eichel. I agree Ottawa should just wash their hands of this and give the #4 to Colorado
  12. 2018 NHL Draft Thread

    I agree we could probably move back to around 25 or so and still get him, but I wouldn't blink an eye if we decided on him at 17th, I really like him. Also for the record, I'm pretty in favor of trading down from 17th depending on who is there, if someone like Ty Smith falls I would keep the pick but I like the idea of sliding back a few picks and taking someone like Bokk or Sandin and picking up a draft pick or two along the way.
  13. 2018 NHL Draft Thread

    Of the guys that will realistically be there, Dom Bokk is definitely who I want the most. Kid has the talent to boom into a star, he reminds me a ton of David Pastrnak. If Bode Wilde is there at 17 I'd take a long look at him too, I've grown to like him more and more.

    If you're so inclined, I just released my Draft Book for this year, 44 pages of content including scouting reports for the Top 100 Prospects https://ridingpinehockey.files.wordpress.com/2018/06/rp_2018draftbook2.pdf

    The RFA compensation would come in the form of 2019 Draft picks since this would theoretically happen after the draft, but we did move out 2019 3rd in the Maroon trade which would make an offer sheet impossible unless you're getting him cheap. Doesn't rule out of the possibility of trading for his rights from Winnipeg, however, it would just be expensive because Trouba is a hell of a player.
