  1. I hate that Dano is friends with that little POS.
  2. I had the Kariya hit up originally, but I deleted it when people got mad I posted so many lol But what the hell...
  3. Impressive for a big man lol
  4. I don’t even remember this one...
  5. ECHL has completely cancelled their season. I feel bad for those guys. They don’t make much as it is.
  6. Yes, but that’s the last thing in the world people should be watching. Talk about increasing panic...
  7. We seem to be getting close to full lockdown here in Ohio. Our governor is closing all dine-in restaurants, bars, etc. Count me as another that never thought they’d see anything like this. I also saw that the movie Outbreak is in the top 10 on Netflix right now. Wtf is wrong with people? Lol
  8. I just threw out Smith as an example of a pick most felt we were lucky to get where we did.
  9. I’d honestly be completely fine with taking Askarov at 17. Especially with 2 other picks in the 1st. I know he had a rocky WJC, but he looked amazing at the U18, and he’s the best goalie prospect in years. Rather roll the dice on him than end up with another McLeod type player that will never move the needle much either way. Now if there’s a Ty Smith level talent sitting there that’s a different story.
  10. That’s good. The workers at the Rock are some of the nicest and most friendly I’ve ever encountered at a sporting event. Glad they will be taken care of.
  11. You’re right, I got a little carried away lol. I’ll stick with just one. @DevilMinder could you delete all my edited posts?
  12. Speaking of Clerks, I have tickets to the Horrorhound convention in Cincinnati for next weekend, and ofc there’s a bunch of people I wanted to meet this year, including Kevin Smith, Jason Mewes, Brian O’Halloran and Jeff Anderson. And for some inexplicable reason it’s not been canceled or postponed yet. Even though our governor is putting a mandate on sporting events, parades, etc. I don’t think I’ll go either way at this point. I know this stuff is trivial in the grand scheme of things, but it still sucks.
  13. Talking about trading a kid who’s 18, and has the potential of Jack Hughes, after 60 GP, is absolutely insane.
  14. Matthews had 4 players with 60+ points (Marner, Nylander, Kadri, JVR) to play with his rookie season. McDavid had Taylor Hall (in the only seasons he ever played all 82 games) and Leon Draisaitl. Patrick Kane had the luxury of coming into the league with Jonathan Toews. I could go on, but if you look at it objectively, Hughes has honestly come into one of the worst situations of any #1 in the past 20 years. Also, I couldn’t disagree more that Nico’s game hasn’t progressed at all. He’s much, much, stronger than he was as a rookie, has improved on face offs to the point he rivals Zajac, and he was playing great until he got injured in February. He was driving right to the net, and scoring goals that looked like a power forward. Pretty sure he was hovering right around a PPG for most of January. Nico is probably never going to be an offensive dynamo, which I think some people expect because he went #1, but if he can be a 70 point two-way forward who’s competing for Selke trophies year after year I’ll be more than happy.
  15. They’ve be playing MUCH better lately, yet certain people still choose to be negative, and focus on an 18 year old kid’s point totals. Sorry, but there’s been plenty to be positive about; Blackwood has been one of the best goalies in the league, Bratt is emerging as a highly skilled top 6 winger that can actually be counted on even late in the season, Goose is every bit as good as advertised, and Pavel Zacha of all people is centering our best line. But the doom and gloom crowd doesn’t care about any of that. It’s just nonstop bitching and endless negativity. It’s exhausting.
  16. As stacked as that USA team was not a single one of Jack’s teammates are in the NHL yet. The rest of those kids are off at college. So as disappointing as his season has been, you’d still have to ignore the circumstances to actually be so doom and gloom about where he is development-wise. What I don’t get is having an opinion set in stone after 60 games. Other than the immense pressure, and unfair expectations of him being a #1OA. One of the other things I find the most irritating is this claim that Jack is getting so much more of an opportunity than the other rookies from his draft. Here’s the ATOI of the 3 lottery picks: Hughes - 15:52 Kakko - 14:20 Dach: 14:14 So while he is averaging a couple more shifts per game, he’s also on the worst team of the three. The Rags top scorer has 94 points. The Blackhawks has 82. The Devils...45. Bit of a difference, no? Jack is currently one point behind Dach, and two behind Kakko. None of them is lighting it up, yet we get proclamations that Kakko will be the next Draisaitl, Dach is on his way to being a future star, and Jack is the next Nail Yakupov. Idc what anyone says, that is CHOOSING to be negative.
  17. His “detractors” mostly just said he’d need some time to develop, so in that regard you’re correct.
