2018-19 Around the League Thread

Clickbait-y title, but I get hot and sweaty thinking about a Lundqvist-led team beating the Rangers en route to a Stanley Cup. Unfortunately for Hank and fortunately for us, neither the Rangers nor Lundqvist are good enough for another crack at that thing in his career. 

My best bud on the planet is a Rangers fan (we actually have a respectful rivalry), and though Ranger fans usually have big-time blinders on, my bud readily admits that Lundqvist is clearly past his prime, and that he wouldn't mind seeing him dealt. 

Kind of a rough 7-year contract...the Rags basically got two years of in-his-prime Lundqvist, and will have gotten less than for the final five years.  Not that much of a surprise considering that they were buying his age 32-38 years I guess, but not great when you're stuck with a clearly declining player for two more years at a still-large cap hit.

Nice (but long) article on Pat Maroon & why he chose StL:  http://www.espn.com/nhl/story/_/id/24931004/nhl-patrick-maroon-decision-sign-st-louis-blues-betting-familial-ties SNIPPET:  Maroon e

Mojo is still in the hospital this morning. If the Bruins want to be pissed about their damaged goods, they can look no further than the dirty piece of rat sh!t wearing number 63 for them

Doc rules. Really miss him.

He's got an NMC. With the impending expansion draft coming up, that plays a huge factor. It would be shocking if a team traded for him. Genuinely shocking.

It would have to be a team that’s pretty much a goalie away, obviously.... maybe a team like Carolina would be interested if they don’t win the Cup this year.

The point you’re missing is that Lundqvist is league average, deteriorating quickly, and Carolina is a team that’s already screwed when it comes to the expansion draft.

Yeah the reason I mentioned them too is their owner is kind of an idiot, maybe he’d be hypnotized by the big name. Highly doubtful though, I know.

Flyers hire Michel Therrien and Mike Yeo as assistant coaches to previously named head coach Alain Vigneault. Lots of head coach experience right there.

I think Lundqvist is retiring as a Ranger. He’ll be their Brodeur, you know, minus all the success, Cups and adultery.

Weird analogy considering Brodeur joined the blues before he retired? Or was that just a very desperate attempt to land an adultery joke?

Blues? I don’t remember that. Most of us don’t. 

I was thinking more of his having been the goalie/face of the franchise for like 20 years. 

The desperation was the “no Cups” part, the adultery was a throw away at the end.

Also, for the record, I don’t really care about the adultery part. He was my goalie, he wasn’t trying to marry my sister.

I don’t usually enjoy being one-upped, but that is not the case here.

So the Flyers traded for the rights to negotiate with Kevin Hayes. They’re obviously not hopeful for Patrick as a top 2 C. Thank the old gods and the new we took Nico.

Yeah I was 60/40 for Patrick vs Hischier at the time.  Glad I was wrong too.

i was 100% for Shero to pick Hischier but i was also 100% for Stolz to pick Lea Thompson in Some Kind of Wonderful. 

You can't always get what you want i guess.

C'mon we all knew Stolz would end up with Mary Stuart Masterson.  I mean Hughes already had the main female character end up with the jock/popular boy in 16 Candles and Pretty in Pink so we all knew he couldn't go 3 for 3 in that direction.
