  1. 2018 Bergevin Appreciation Thread

    This post takes real sack. I approve.
  2. Domi > Galchenyuk

    I like what I see from Domi so far. My guess is that galchenyuk’s numbers will be quite soft this year as he’s again playing on a terrible team.
  3. I have nothing against him but there’s not enough rocket sauce in the tank to ever be a real factor.
  4. Oct. 13, Pittsburgh vs Montreal, 7 PM

    Lindgren called up. Price has the flu.
  5. Permanent Trade Proposal Thread

    Slater Koekkoek is on the block. L handed D, can move the puck, high pedigree and might benefit from a change of scenery.
  6. Shea Weber named Captain

    Agreed. The “officials don’t like Gallagher” is worn out news. The guy is 100% heart and soul and probably next in line for the captaincy. I remember his first season on opening night when the camera panned to him (he didn’t dress). You could see the “You guys are making huge mistake” in his eyes. Gotta love the dedication.

    Marc Bergevin: (furrows brow furiously)
  8. 2018 Training Camp Thread

    Opening night just got way more interesting!
  9. Injury news

    Disagree. They were money from the opening whistle and tore a hole through excellent teams. The immediate reaction is to dismiss it as an anomaly while I say their team was 2nd line forwards up and down the entire lineup and #3-4 defenceman. i.e. no immediate weakness to exploit hence their success in a “weak link” sport
  10. Injury news

    It was. Nobody wanted to see Columbus v2.0. My point is that while they wanted Vegas to do better than past expansion teams, they certainly did not want to give them a championship caliber team. In retrospect, the Vegas first year was incredibly revealing. The owners gave them a package that most thought would maybe have them on the fence for a playoff berth. Quite a few pundits had them in the bottom 5 of the league. Take home message being - I think a lot of us who think we understand this game (owners included) have a lot left to learn.
  11. Injury news

    Owners also agreed to give Vegas a Stanley Cup final team in their first year. They don’t really understand the game.
  12. Injury news

    I think the majority of Emelin’s hits were well within the playbook. He did have the odd dirty hit but he was not a dirty player.
  13. Injury news

    Right on! I feel like the league is getting to this level - but at a snails pace.
  14. Injury news

    There it is.... DON being DON. And in fact, I will say 100% that Deslauriers had hardware placement and near 100% chance that we will never see him scrap again. - Signed Dr. Recchi. It’s going to be a great year boys!
  15. Injury news

    Many of these fractures require hardware placement for fixation. Can only speculate since I don’t know the actual nature of the fracture.
  16. Injury news

    Deslaurier’s scrapping days are likely kaput.
  17. First stage of this rebuild is almost done. We finish bottom 10 this year, trade the usual suspects at the deadline, and we may have enough young talent and draft picks to start turning this ship around. That being said, I can’t help but wonder if TO will take a run at Weber for the playoffs and then flip him in the offseason. He’s exactly what they need and they are gunning for #1.
  18. 2018 NHL Offseason Thread

    MB just took a deep breath of relief. Dorion just made him look like a genius.
  19. Who cares if we can make the playoffs!!!? Move the goalposts. Can this team win a Cup?! Not even close. Until then, accumulate picks and prospects until we’re ready. We’ve suffered since ‘93. Let’s do this the right way.
  20. Injury news

    As a doctor myself, I have to speak up and say that the organization does not control whether someone plays or rests. It is up to the player and player alone after being given advice from the MD. Anything else would be a violation of the doctor patient relationship. If the player decides to be influenced by team managment, that is his decision.
  21. Injury news

    Cruise for Hughes!
  22. Time to face reality a blow this team up now

    More of this please!!! We’ve been through hell since ‘93. Mgmt finally ponies up for a proper rebuild and everyone behaves as though they just lost a testicle in a cleaver fight. Sit back. It’s a process that most of us as true hockey fans will actually enjoy.
  23. UFA Day Thread

    But what a crushing blow if they don’t win...
  24. UFA Day Thread

    Oh yeah??!!!
  25. UFA Day Thread

    This is the best negative news we could get! Finally Molson has a measuring stick for MB - what could have been done since 2012. I hope the Leafs win and a sense of humility is finally spread throughout our front offices. Our franchise has been on the outs ever since Quebec left. Best chance for our success is TO success - as crazy as it sounds.
