  1. May I ask what their usernames are? Curious.
  2. Are the podcasters regular posters on the forum?
  3. No wonder the Rocket won. That's half our NHL team on their roster.
  4. Think management is going to try and move Petry at deadline?
  5. My guess from watching the game is that only Petry may have been in position to really "see" it.
  6. Any news on what this Price presser is about?
  7. I mainly caught games where he was with Chiarot and a few at the end of December... So that explains why I thought he'd been a tire fire haha
  8. Has Savard really looked like a value contract? I admit it's tough to judge him given the general state of the team but I struggle to see him as a 3.5M dman. I don't think his role in Tampa justified it either?
  9. 100% the Keith trade. Terrible contract for a player who is nowhere near that value. Smith could be fine as a backup. His performance last year was amazing but he is old and gets injured.
  10. Smith Pelly is back in the organization? That surprises me.
  11. Those lines are not actually in 1-4 order are they?
  12. Not going to lie. When I saw the headline about Arber X getting traded from Rangers to the Bulldogs... My first thought was how did our AHL team trade for a guy from NYR when I thought he was our prospect... Then I remembered Kitchener and that the Bulldogs are an OHL team now. I was very very confused for a second.
  13. I guess the strat we should have used to counter an over the cap Tampa... is going under the cap? big brain plays.
  14. I'm sorry. That is Mr.Ten PP goal Metropolis to you.
  15. Not sure who here watches the AHL games... But has anyone stood out with half the AHLers in the NHL?
  16. The NHL trade deadline is March 21st. As of today that's 99 days away. By then 64 games will be played (35 left to play). Price, Edmonston and Byron will be back in January... Toffoli will be back by the start of March or late February. Basically we should have a much fuller roster and therefore can actually trade people without calling up Cameron Hillis or Fairbrother lol. As people have covered... Players with term are more likely to be traded/get a better return in the offseason. Leaving the expiring contracts. Expiring contracts: UFA LD - Ben Chiarot - 3.5M LD - Brett Kulak - 1.85M F - Cedrick Paquette - 950k F - Matthieu Perreault - 950k RD - Chris Wideman - 750k RFA W - Artturri Lehkonen - 2.3M LD - Sami Niku - 750k There are more but I figure they have no value ie: Clague, Pezzeta types or and I figure we aren't trading Romanov. Questions I have: Has Wideman shown enough to have value for a depth d? What value does Kulak hold... In particular are there any more analytically minded teams in need of d? How is Chiarot on his right side? Would anyone trade a 7th for a Perreault? What does Lehkonen's RFA + Arbitration rights do to his value?
  17. https://www.google.com/amp/s/theprovince.com/sports/hockey/nhl/15-french-speaking-nhl-general-manager-candidates/wcm/fed553ce-f639-45f6-bce4-11be088159b3/amp/ Stumbled on this list. Perhaps the most interesting collection of names I've seen. Does anyone on here know more about some of the Swiss candidates? Perhaps with a highly experience president of hockey ops in Gorton... A more... unexpected... GM could be given the reigns?
  18. I feel like we'd be the ones adding the 2nd here...
  19. With all the speculation (admittedly from fans not Insiders) about Petry or Savard being moved at the deadline... Is there recent precedent for someone with 4 years left on their deal being moved? I figure we'd see (if we keep sucking), Chiarot, Lehkonen and Kulak being moved.
  20. Don't know if this is the right thread. But do people think Teasdale or Brook get resigned?
  21. Yeah if Romanov and Norlinder could go down I'd go for it at this point... Primeau simply isn't NHL ready. On Primeau.. goalies take time and I don't see the point in hamstringing a 22 year old goalies confidence in the most mentally dependent position in the game.
  22. I mean... Do we need Caufield and Primeau out here experiencing this shit?
