  1. Hawks are kicking the Oilers teeth in...
  2. If it keeps him off the Rags thats fine with me.
  3. I really don’t like their chances with the King of Nothing in net. Sterio won’t like this but can the league please rig it for Montreal to get Laf? Lol
  4. At least if we end up with Rossi or Quinn our scouts should already be pretty familiar with them because of all our other prospects playing for the 67’s.
  5. Although, taking both a college bound player, and a Russian might be a tad worrying. Or is Sanderson pretty much guaranteed to be in the NHL in a year or two being a top 10 pick?
  6. I’d he completely fine with that. We don’t have much in the system other than Mac. Gilles Senn is already 24, even if he does end up being a capable option at the NHL level. Maybe the other way around though. Quinn at 10, and Askarov at 17. I think there’s a better possibility he’s still there at that point than Quinn.
  7. You just know it’ll be the Rags. As if 2020 couldn’t get any worse...
  8. Jazz, Magic, Heat, Thunder...
  9. But it is paying homage to their hockey history. The Metropolitans literally had an S on their jerseys...
  10. Nah, not terrible at all. Even years from now when people are making lists of the worst jerseys of all time neither of these will ever be mentioned. I can understand not caring for them, but terrible? Not even close.
  11. Wild and Lightning sound fine. So does Kraken, imo.
  12. I think both LV and Seattle killed it on their logo and jerseys. Love them both.
  13. I don’t know how you don’t go with green as your primary color when you’re literally the “Emerald City” Those are odd color choices, but I guess I’ll reserve judgment until I see the uniforms.

    Who do you want at #7?

    Drysdale in last place...didn’t expect that.

    I have an irrational fear of drafting Swedes. Other than Bratt we’ve had such bad luck with them lol

    No it doesn’t. I stated Zacha being in the top 6 probably means he’s been moved to wing. And Nico has already proven he’s not a bust.

    30 point Zacha I agree. If he can take the next step and be a 20 goal 40-50 point guy I could live with it. Let’s see if Ruff can do anything with him. And before you say 20 goals is unrealistic...he did have 13 in 61 GP last season. It’s all good. It just sucks how dead the board is right now. I lurk on other sites like HF and Reddit and they’re always active. I just don’t want to join those places. Lol

    Sorry for trying to get some discussion going. Please resume bitching about goal songs or whatever other more important topics get all the attention around here.

    Well, I’m certainly not taking someone just to fill some quota of taller players. You take the BPA. And I think my “cases” make a good point considering they’re both Calder finalists, and two of the best young dmen in the game right now. There’s probably at least a couple teams kicking themselves for not taking Quinn Hughes, and I wouldn’t be at all surprised if his lack of size had something to do with that. As for Zacha? I’ve been pretty critical of him over the years (although not quite mfitz level), but I don’t think it’s that unrealistic to have him in the top 6. He centered our best line down the stretch when he was playing with Gusev. Although if Jack becomes what we all hope Zacha would have to move to wing. But Zacha now finally has a “real” NHL coach in Ruff, so I’d say this should be his last chance.

    I also look at the top ten players in scoring this season, and 4 of them are smaller guys <6ft (Panarin, Kucherov, Marchand, Kane). Players like Matthews don’t grow on trees. And when the big guys are that skilled they go top 3 like Byfield will.

    Yet either Quinn Hughes or Cale Makar will win the Calder this year, and they’re 5’10 and 5’11 respectively...

    Interested who the “other” choice should be? I thought I had the most likely options covered. I guess maybe Quinn or Askarov, but they both seem more like our 2 pick range. I’d be really surprised to see either one go as high as 7.

    Who do you want at #7?

    I get wanting size, but the way the game is played these days the smaller guys are having more success than ever. If anything, I’d be more concerned with having a little more size on the blue line. Forward not as much. And a player can have all the size in the world like Nikita Popugaev, but that’s obviously not a guarantee he’ll work out. Also, some of Lindy Ruff’s best teams in Buffalo had really small star players.

    Rossi is definitely NOT slow. No idea where you’re getting that from. He’s actually one of the best skaters in this draft class. As for him being too small? He’s already 180 lbs, and plays like he’s much bigger (think Marchand).
