  1. Well, I have to admit, it is a good draft class this year ...
  2. But for that, you need some defensive capability on the second line, and Drouin and Domi are not known for that. Lehkonen-Suzuki-Armia can play D against the Malkin line and still generate opportunities, and Drouin-Domi-Byron will have a much easier assignment against the Pens' third line.
  3. I thought Fonstad still had potential. But I assume that it's a game of available contract slots, and the other players (that have been signed) simply had more potential than Fonstad.
  4. Maybe they'll bring back Kinkaid as a starter to help the situation? 😆
  5. It will probably be necessary for Canada to do the same yet.
  6. Agreed (on conference finals). Maybe (on draft order). No one knows yet what scheme they will finally settle on.
  7. Ssssshhhh... I really don't want this 24-team setup, I want decent draft picks in a year when we have a ton of them. If the Fear of Carey makes that NOT happen, all the better.
  8. So, there are substantial performance bonuses. Maybe that's what took this long. How does a "junior salary" work? He gets paid (only $10,500, but still) for paying in the OHL? Is this common?
  9. And no performance bonuses were negotiated, either. Unless Hillis was holding out for some, but it seems unlikely. CapFriendly reports that he'll wear #88.
  10. Two full seasons in the KHL. And he will be two and a half years older than Kotkaniemi was when he plays his first NHL game.
  11. In no way is this is a fit with our rebuild plan.
  12. While I am not defending his HoF nomination, Langway was an awesome defensive defenceman. Not much scoring, but that was not his game, that should not determine his worth. I was disappointed when the Habs traded him, and from a purely hockey perspective we should have never made that trade. But the economic situation was bad back then, and Langway pretty much forced Grundman into making the move.
  13. If the plan is to trade him, would a three-year contract make sense? Would a (little bit) longer contract make him more attractive to another team?
