  1. That's interesting to look back at a post from a year ago and evaluate if anything has changed. I really like the changes MB made and I'll say what many said during the offseason, he checked off all the boxes. Obviously all of want to get better players at all positions but in the real world, I think MB did very well with what he had and what was available and I think we have seen a fairly major uptick in our depth, talent and the obvious needs that we had and were addressed. I think that if they play well as a team we can now compete with anyone. Do we have the best t
  2. I have a question for Commandant and those who follow the draft eligible players closely. I clearly remember Commandant pushing for us to draft Quinn Hughes and without question, in hindsight, that would have been a very very good choice. For this draft who would be your top 3 players you would hope or expect to be available at 16 that we should draft?
  3. Recently Bergevin was quoted as being "cool", not too interested in Laine. Do you think this is him trying not to overplay his hand and appear not too interested or could there be something about Laine he doesn't like....besides all the goals he scores that we could certainly use. Do you think he'll make an offer? Thoughts?
  4. A year ago I wondered why Montreal wasn't interested in Hoffman. However I have read reports lately that say while he can score goals, his teams do poorly in goals against when he's on the ice and all his numbers are all in steady decline. Anyone who gives Hoffman a big long term contract now will regret it. So according to a number of hockey people, don't touch Hoffman with a 10 foot pole.
  5. I don't think that's nearly enough for what Winnipeg would want for Laine. I would expect Winnipeg would want a 1st and Romanov and maybe Petry. Players like Laine don't come along too often and I don't think you're getting him for a 2nd line centre, a prospect and a 1st or 2nd rounder.
  6. I haven't spent time thinking about Sergechev because I just can't see Tampa letting a young developing d-man get away. Is there anything we could offer them that could accomplish them getting value for him while also saving $ for their cap issues? Would they accept a first and two seconds and a d-prospect. Personally I don't think they would. I just don't see it happening. Teams always seem to find ways to dump salaries so they can keep young d-men like Sergechev. Would I like to get him. Absolutely. But I don't think he's leaving Tampa.
  7. I don't think we need Kerfoot, so I would be talking about what the Leafs would want for Nylander. If we offered Domi & either Mete or Juulsen and maybe a second, I don't think I'd want to give up much more. It might be hard for these two teams to come to an agreement for Nylander, especially being division rivals. You'll probably say the Leafs wouldn't take that offer and I probably agree. But MB doesn't seem to be a GM who overpays, at least in the past 2-3 years, so I would be very surprised if he would give away much more. He would give much much more for Laine
  8. Whoo. To me that's a huge overpayment. I wouldn't give up that much for Nylander and Kerfoot.
  9. Does anyone think that Toronto would be interested in bringing home another Domi. That might be a popular move. I think Toronto regrets letting Kadri go since he's the type of gritty hard working, skilled player they're lacking. Max is that kind of player. Would Max Domi + get it done for a Nylander? I think the two teams would make a trade like that if they were both getting value.
  10. At the end of the series with Pittsburgh in my mind Drouin was a total mess and a total loss. He didn't seem to be able to generate anything, kept losing puck battles and to me was almost totally ineffective, invisible except for his mistakes. I don't know what happened, maybe Suzuki happened, but in the Philly series I saw the first glimpse of his talent begin to emerge. In particular his vision and two passes to Suzuki who burried them seemed elite to me. HIs speed is undeniable and from I read each time a player gets put on his line they say they love playing with Drouin becaus
  11. All great points and they all make perfect sense.
  12. Is anyone surprised that Ryan Poehling hasn't made it into the lineup yet? Jake Evans, a 7th round pick is in and playing. Alex Belzile, who I think was undrafted and played for a few AHL teams, had made it onto the 4th line in the playoffs. But Poehling, a first round pick hasn't played a game. Is there a problem? Just wondering, kinda surprised that a big body like his isn't needed against Philly.
  13. What a shock! Did something happen to him?
  14. Just a quick note and question regarding something I read today. This isn't a bash on the player just an observation regarding our team and future. A year ago I think a number of us were wanting, hoping that we could sign Jake Gardner to a long term contract. But I read today that he was a healthy scratch and is Carolina's 7th defenceman. For those who maybe follow Carolina closer than I do, has he been injured or has something happened to him or has he just played himself into that #7 position? Kind of shocking, in spite of his defensive gaffs at time, that a guy who
  15. I'm sure we've all heard the media clamour over MB's press conference following the close of the trade deadline. Many reporters said they were left totally confused over his comments and at the end they said they had no idea what his plan was. They said he looked very tired, had a sore back and wasn't putting his sentences together very well and ended up contradicting himself. So is he confused, was he just tired, or was he hiding his real plan which will be unfolded this June and July? So my question is, does it seem like MB has a plan.In the Gazette on Feb. 27 Claude Julian said
