  1. It's horrible that this stuff continues to happen. Hopefully all if this exposure helps with culture in the future.
  2. Quit psyching me out. I keep seeing updates on the kirby dach thread and folks be chatting about other teams. Lol But since I'm here... I've always been against taxpayer funded arenas because there is almost never a financial payback in growth or visitation or spin off business etc... but I've heard other arguments which ask why theater's or parks or expensinsive museums are built. Most are financially negative, taxpayer funded ventures, but they add to a positive quality of life to residents. It's an interesting discussion. I'm still more on the build your own arena bandwagon though.
  3. Been watching video of this kid. I can't stop. He's so dynamic. First pass. Skating it out. Cuts Creating open ice. Playmaking is off the charts. so fun to watch. I don't care. I know I'm not supposed to get excited about prospects, but this kid looks so good.
  4. I'm pretty skeptical about this guy. Time will tell, bit I'm definitely not too excited.
  5. I wouldn't give anything for him and would only sign if it was a reasonable deal. As you say.
  6. You guys are definitely right. It isn't black and white. I was a big petry fan until this year. I will miss his skill. But my opinion soured a lot this year.
  7. He was in the first year of his contract extension and his wife can't deal with covid rules? They were living with those rules for 7 months before he signed it. Probably should thought that one through. Calls out the coach publicly multiple times. He sucked worse than dd last season. Now Habs are hostage to either down trade (which they did) or keep an unprofessional distraction on the team. Very annoying situation all in all.
  8. You make 6.5 million a year. You start pouting because your wife won't come live in the place you've lived for 5 years? Bah. Suck it up I says. I'm glad he's gone. I was a fan until last season when the going got tough and jeff got going.
  9. Glad to be rid of the pouty baby. Get lost
  10. Uggh. I pray we got this right. I hope snorkovsky becomes jagr, Wright becomes nuge and Cooley becomes kadri. I'll take that. My fear is Cooley becomes marner, Wright becomes bergeron and juraj becomes Alex tuch
  11. Reasonable comparison, but Romanov can skate better I think. I feel like his skating in all areas is superior to emelin. Cuts. Cross overs, backwards,
  12. The draft is a total gamble. If slavofski and wright are neck and neck, my thought is you draft Wright. Draft for need when they are that close. The current analysis could very well turn out to be wrong. It often is, but that's just how it goes when you draft at this age.
  13. Lehkonen has his own elite talent. His ability to forecheck and win puck battles is phenomenal. It's crazy how outmatched he is size wise, bit still comes out with the puck. I agree that he should be paid like a 40 point 3rd liner, but he should get a bump up for his defensive game. He was one of my favorites. It still hurts seeing armia, Byron getting paid in Montreal and lehky gone...
  14. Nichushkin, Burokovsky and Kadri likely sit a bit higher than him I priority. Byram is due for a monster raise next year. It will be interesting to see if Colorado can keep the core.
  15. I'm praying for back to back Colorado wins. Would live for Lehkonen to address the media with " we didn't want want to go back to Tampa. Pfft. Those fans acted like that one win was the Stanley cup. They won their cup last series."
  16. Nurse needs to get more consistent. 9.2 cap hit till 2030 is crazy.
  17. I often wonder about that. I feel like he has never been the same since that crash. Edit. He was the best hockey player in the world, the following season, but still, I feel like that knee injury kept coming back. Maybe I'm wrong.
  18. It was a dirty hit for sure. As for Kadri, let him reap what he sows. Do not like this player.
  19. I love watching shesterkin. He pushes laterally so well, and is back on his skates so fast. It's amazing how mobile he is, while bring positionaly so strong. Mobile like quick. Positional like price or lunkvist.
  20. First time tampa lost back to back in the playoffs since 2019
  21. It can't be easy to tell the world you have mental health and substance abuse issues. Many can't admit it to themselves or their loved ones. His most important award in my eyes.
