  1. 2019 Memorial Cup

    So one of Teasdale or Suzuki is going to the final. Any word on if Fonstad was injured for the playoffs?
  2. Permanent Rumour Thread

    Assuming it's entirely a mental issue, offseason therapy did wonders for Lehner.
  3. Permanent Rumour Thread

    Bit surprised they aren't giving him another season to try to turn it around.
  4. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Doubt it's that high. Edmonton isn't totally boned cap-wise like Chicago was when they had to give up Teravainen to get one year of Bickell off the books, but the Blackhawks also got a 2nd and a 3rd back in that deal. Habs got Armia, a 4th, and a 7th to buyout Steve Mason, but he was also only a one year contract. How about Edmonton's first round pick, 2nd round pick, and Sekera for the Habs first round pick and second round pick? Jump 7 slots from the middle of rounds one and two to the early of rounds one and two. Just enough sprinkling of magic beans to make it worthwhile for Montreal, and Edmonton can still feel like they haven't entirely mortgaged the future to help save their present.
  5. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Maatta's stock has dropped over the years, and I heard on a recent 31 Thoughts podcast that the Penguins want more than ANYONE is willing to pay.
  6. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    On the other side of that coin, would Tampa or Toronto rather pay more to send those players out west rather than help out a division rivals near future?
  7. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    He probably got injured getting out of bed this morning. 3rd pair LD. 2 years as a 6-7 defenseman, but if Edmonton pays a good price to move him...
  8. 2019 NHL Playoffs

    We're heading close to everything being reviewable, which the refs will use as a crutch to never make a call in real time. Reviews do slow down the game, and it's only going to get worse. Alternatively, have the refs only watch the play in real time. If it's a play that can only be discerned through slow motion than it's too close to matter. The offside review was put in place to stop the egregious misses. Now we're checking frames discussing if a player's foot is off the ice. Does anybody know what goaltender interference is? We're watching slow motion replays and debating if a player pushed into brushing a goalie is a penalty, inadvertent, or completely fine. It's not hockey. If coaches want refs to have a closer look, cool, but if it can't be found in a real time review then so be it.

    When it comes to weaponizing our short term cap space and ability to spend money, it's such a shame that the teams who are most looking for cap relief are teams within the division. While it would be nice to take on an asset along with a contract anchor like Marleau or Callahan, I'm really all not that jazzed to help out the Leafs or Lightning with their cap issues. I've said it before, but maybe it's more likely to look west and see if Edmonton reeeeeeally wants to dump Sekera?
  10. 2019 NHL Playoffs

    This is good news?
  11. POLL: How do you feel about the future?

    People forget how bad Price looked after his rookie stardom. The Halak vs Price debate raged the summer prior to Jaro getting traded. Was it the centennial season that Gainey traded Huet and gave Price the entire weight of the team going into the playoffs?
  12. POLL: How do you feel about the future?

    If Primeau ends up being a really good goalie and requests a trade to be a starter, it is true that the Habs will likely not get his high end value back in a trade. But they will get more than the 7th round pick used to draft him, so that trade would still be a win.
  13. 2019 NHL Playoffs

    A Sharks/Bruins final would have a lot of drama, but I think I'm gonna cheer for a Battle of the Unlikelies: Blues vs Jerks.
  14. Who do the Habs take in the 2019 draft?

    Updated list: Jacket's 2nd rounder is 50th OA, and Winnipeg's 7th is 206th OA.
  15. Habs sign Finnish Dman Otto Leskinen.

    Ya, I'm not too familiar on when prospects are usually signed for next season, but it seems to me that if they aren't signed a few days after their junior season ends then it's just not gonna happen.
  16. Habs sign Finnish Dman Otto Leskinen.

    Depth defenseman, how can MB resist? But I guess neither Walford or Tyzska are getting ELCs.
  17. 2018-19 NHL General Discussion Thread

    Word is Holland's hands were a bit tied by Mike Ilitch's desire to see a competitive team no matter what. What Holland has done since Ilitch's death (and the supposed competitive pressure dying with him) has been pretty good: Tomas Jurco for a 3rd Brendan Smith for 2nd and 3rd Vanek for Dylan McIlrath and a 3rd Steve Ott for a 6th Riley Sheahan and a 5th for Scott Wilson and a 3rd (then traded Scott Wilson for a 5th, so basically Sheahan for a 3rd) Mrazek for a 3rd Tatar for a 1st, 2nd, and a 3rd Nick Jensen and 5th for Madison Bowey and a 2nd Gustav Nyquist for a 2nd and a 3rd (that could become another 2nd) And ya he hands out NTC's so willingly that it's probably what he gives to kids for Halloween, but most of those bad deals happened in the Ilitch Era. Holland has done a pretty damn good job of pulling the team out of Cap Hell and somehow managed to accumulate 31 draft picks in the 3 years GMs would have been throwing him anchors instead of life jackets. If Edmonton is looking for a quick retool while navigating Cap Hell, Holland appears to be the man for the job.
  18. 2018-19 NHL General Discussion Thread

    Ken Holland is expected to be named GM of the Oilers after he was offered a 5 x 5 contract.
  19. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Probably not, but is a guy like Kapanen in Toronto worth a 2nd round pick?
  20. Permanent Rumour Thread

    PTO to see if he can still hang in the chel?
  21. Jordan Weal re-signs

    1.4 per year. That's slightly less money than most expected.
  22. 2019 NHL Playoffs

    Trading someone from the forward group for a top 4 defenseman is not a huge risk. More UFA forwards available than defensemen, plus Suzuki could make a case for a forward spot by mid-season.
  23. You've sent too many players to Laval or to another team, unless you expect them to do 8 defense instead of 14 forwards which is very possible.
  24. UFAs: Jordan Weal (Signed - $1 400 000, 2 years) Nate Thompson (Signed - $1 000 000, 1 year) Jordie Benn Christian Folin (Signed - $800 000, 1 year) Antti Niemi (Not being signed) RFAs: Joel Armia Arturri Lehkonen Charles Hudon Michael McCarron Daniel Audette Hunter Shinkurak Brett Kulak Mike Reilly Gustav Olofsson Xavier Ouellet Brett Lernout So far only Antti Niemi has been informed he'll not be offered a contract for next season.
