  1. It was said with a fair bit of hyperbole. I do remember the 60ish point seasons, quite well. The point was his resurgence this year was uncanny. He compensated for his loss of speed with perfect positional play. His feathered passes were uncannily accurate. He was the epitome of hockey smarts. If he stays healthy, this is the type of player who's going to play into his 40s and remain effective.
  2. Weber is in the prime of his career, right now. 31 is not old in the nhl. 34-35 is where the big decline usually starts... unless you're Andrei Markov and you have the best season of your career at 38.
  3. Hmm. we were using Emelin as top 4 last year (which I admit, is not ideal), and Schlemko is strictly an upgrade of Emelin across the board.
  4. We have 4 capable lhds, and only two rhds. (At all.)
  5. I suppose. But just remember how Emelin looked playing on his wrong side. It doesn't really matter. Severson is a longshot potential franchise D-man. He's not Subban, but I don't see NJ taking that risk. (On the other hand, I recall someone trading away a certain someone for Scott Gomez...)
  6. In this case, we're not losing galchenyuk for a third paring d-man though, we're losing our 1st round pick for a 22-year old third pairing d-man who can move the puck like mad and is already a 31 point per year guy in NJ. Basically, an upgrade on Beaulieu that is top 4 potential (and actually appears to be likely to get there, unlike Beaulieu.)
  7. It's not the lack of talent for our RHDs that concerns me, it's the lack of bodies. Right now, we have only two habs d-men that shoot right, Weber and Petry. Meanwhile, we have Markov, Schlemko, Benn, and Davidson shooting left. Right now, one of them has to crossover to their worse side. Worse yet, those are the only 6 NHL ready defensemen we have on our roster -- if one of them gets injured, we're in trouble. I'd love for Davidson to be the 7th D-man, and to have a great kid like Severson in our top 6.
  8. Good Canadian boy, Methot, manages to block all 7 Canadian teams for trades - putting Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg, Toronto, and Montreal on his No Trade list, and he can't be moved back to Ottawa before January. Very patriotic. In case that finger doesn't heal, I have a particular finger to give him.
  9. My issue here is Galchenyuk has already proven he's a legitimate top 6 forward, and even scored 30 goals. First overall picks are great, but every once in a while you get an Alexei Yashin or Alexandre Daigle. What you do is trade Galchenyuk for Damon Severson to address our rhd need, and to balance the added value in Galchenyuk, you also swap 1st round picks (and grab Patrick with it.) I also don't think NJ does this, though.
  10. Petry has been a great second pairing d-man. I've loved everything I've seen from Benn since we got him. Markov... at some point the wheels have to come off, but for now, this guy is still amazing. I felt better with Emelin injured than when he was in the lineup. At this point i'm rather worried about the third pairing. Looks like Emelin and ... Davidson? Nesterov isn't getting a contract. And what happens when someone gets injured? We obviously need some more D-men.
  11. That's not a horrible outcome. Nothing against turtleneck, but his play has declined below his salary. I'd rather it be Emelin, who's never been worth his salary, but we can only lose one of them...
  12. Beaulieu turned 24 last December, he'll be 25 early next season. If Lehkonen doesn't add 20 points per year within 3 years, I'll be on his case, too. At 22, Beaulieu had a goal and 8 assists in 64 games played, his first full season in the NHL. At 21 he played only 17 games and had a grand total of 2 assists.
  13. I don't disagree, necessarily. All things considered, I'd prefer to keep Alex Galchenyuk. However, you must give up something to get something. If the right trade becomes available. I'd certainly be open to moving almost anyone.
  14. I have never liked anything I've seen from Nathan Beaulieu on the ice, with the exception of his scrappy defense of his teammates. I kept wanting to be wrong, but ever since we brought him up to the NHL, he's been an offensive-only puck-moving defenseman who doesn't generate offense and never moves the puck. I'm happy getting a 3rd for him.
  15. I'm an English fan and I don't think the trade was asinine. I think it favored Nashville, slightly, due to the three year age gap, but that Weber is a better D-Man than Subban right now. He won't be in 3 more years...
