2018 Offseason Thread

The word "chronic" is another buzzword that I wish we'd avoided hearing. But I'll agree that it's far too early and there's not enough information to get nervous / anxious. 

Chronic just means its been lasting a long time, more than 3 months. Any injury any player had for a whole season is "chronic". It could be that it didn't get better because he never stopped using it (I mean he is 19...a lot of wrist action in the teen years). Or, of course, it could be literally anything else. 

That's what really bothers me about these injury reports. If you are going to tell us next to nothing, just tell us nothing. If you are gonna say something, tell us the whole story. That way we don't need to speculate. 

I prefer to believe that it will be healed by October and that he will double all of his offensive numbers next year because he's healthy. :)

didn't see this anywhere in this thread, I think this was first mentioned about a week ago elsewhere.

Leafs Nation has surrounded Jake Gardiner's house with torches and pitchforks. That'd be a great buy-low move.

ehhhh after that performance in game 7... 

He's so damn 'dynamic'.  As in, he's pretty good some games, and just utter trash the next.  I feel like we have enough of those types of players.

But I suppose if you could buy low, and I mean real low, I'd give it a shot.

My only reservation with Jake Gardiner is he wouldn't help us shave down our goals against, he's great offensively but he's very, very bad defensively, and we gotta focus on becoming a better defensive team if we're going to take that next step. I like Gardiner, but what I'd like even more is if we coupled getting Jake Gardiner with a corresponding move for a defensive defenseman that we can pair him with.

I've been doing design work for the Trailer Park Boys and I had to meet them in Halifax yesterday which was pretty awesome. Took the opportunity to get myself a local souvenir of a kid that will likely become my favourite player.

yeah man it's a huuuge blow to the franchise.

They own a bar in Halifax and we went there after. fvcking Randy (pat) showed up too lol it was awesome, i was not expecting to see him too. It's truly sad he was telling me that he really lost one of his best friend and basically a job. They had a bunch of tour dates planned, so that's a lot of money that just vanished for him. That being said they have a salad at that bar it's called something like "the don't give a fvck salad" or something along those lines lol there's fries in there, donair meat, and all kinds of sh!t i can't remember lol insanely not healthy but he tried it. it was hilarous.

They have something new coming next year though. I'm not at liberty to say what but you'll see.

So, just have to get through the draft lottery tonight without the Rags, Isles or Canes moving up in the draft.

Dahlin or Svechnikov to any of those teams would kinda suck.

Say the Isles or Rangers end up at 3rd, I’m hoping they fall for Tkachuk and pass on Zadina, Tkachuk is being touted right alongside Svechnikov and Zadina but IMO Tkachuk doesn’t have anywhere near the ceiling of those two

Blake Coleman and Brian Gibbons added to the World Championship roster for Team USA. They join #NJDevils teammates Will Butcher and Keith Kinkaid on Team USA.

Tkachuk is not even close to those other two, but seems like just the player to get some dumb team excited. Can't wait to see who it is.

Canes, Sabres, and Habs. 

fvcking Canes snuck in damn it.

Though maybe Dahlin makes Hanafin disposable.

Hopefully Carolina gets 3, but I’m just happy the Rags and Isles didn’t get into the top 3.

Hopefully they don’t have a chance at Dahlin.

If Carolina adds Dahlin to that already unreal young defense corps... just fvck me right in the ass with a twelve foot rusty pole.

Can only hope Carolina drafts 3rd and doesn’t like Zadina.
