  1. I very wise goalie once said, something like, "I don't know what all the panic is about, it is preseason". Unfortunately he is sidelined and may not play again.
  2. I remember last year preseason when people on here shot me down for saying X Factor was going to be an NHL defenceman. "ECHL at best" was one of the retorts if I recall right. You guys need to tool up on your scouting abilities, lol. Unfortunately I cant watch any preseason this year to give my insight.
  3. As a parent who was overcharged for years to help fund this, I want my money back! How about full disclosure? Open up the books, make them public and show us exactly what was done with the funds we contributed?
  4. I just happened to be there overnight on my ship. It was a chance of a lifetime to see a game over here. I am glad I took advantage. The fans were amazing. If Leksand fans are better, I am not sure my ears could take it. Says the old rocker...
  5. Yep, The most standout player in the game, Soderlund, who was a bust. The above mentioned, all are far from NHL. Oslund has good legs and hockey smarts though. Still young. Fun game though with a great atmosphere. I compare it to watching a Jr A game with a soccer crowd.
  6. I am in Stockholm and going to watch DJURGÅRDEN vs VÄSTERÅS tonight. Any key players on these teams to watch?
  7. His lateral movement is his biggest issue that I see. He has a habit of sliding past his post when moving across. Not giving up on him yet, but so far he is a good AHL goalie. Not NHL caliper. He has a long way to go to be an NHL starter.
  8. We got that in Dach? Maybe, big C anyway
  9. Boggled how anyone could even suggest trading our top prospect during a rebuild. That would be beyond stupidity.
  10. Happy to have memories of watching him live, as a Hab and as a Nordique. My brothers first NHL game. Simply the best of his era. RIP Guy.
  11. Lagesson fills a jersey and bench spot while helping us lose out. Great pickup. 2nd in 2023 for Kulak is fair value.
  12. I heard it is not done as Allen is part of the trade...
  13. I remember that post. I hoped we stopped drafting shoe in bottom 6 forwards at that point and preferred shooting for the moon with a high risk reward type. Now, we need to plug those bottom 6 holes. Good addition. We are back on track I believe. Aging Price get his cup here? God I hope so. He deserves it. Window closing though. Got to be realistic.
  14. OK. Stop winning now, we can't make the playoffs so worst is best. Should have kept Ducharme or made the move months ago. Hope we trade away enough to stay in last and do it soon.
  15. The ducks is the 2023 pick I would target, they could easily miss next year and when the balls drop you never know. Most likely to fall in the standing imo.
  16. But alas nobody know who holds that now, which is why it is worth getting as many cards from the deck as you can. Actually if our cards are played right, 1st next year's is ours anyway and we are trying to scam 2nd overall from someone. Could you imagine? Bedard Michkov Wright Suzuki. OK, dreaming but not totally impossible. Please suck just as hard next year.
  17. I would have a presser saying I will continue to talk to my players not planning to finish last 2 years in a row, while actually planning to do just that. You can't say we plan to suck and tank again next year for a top pick. I do believe and hope that is the plan. Please suck next year. Please!
  18. I have it from a source that tends to be dead on that we hosed them because Heinemam is going to be a stud. Hope he proves to be right as always. Personally, I am now cheering for a collapse in Calgary so this pick becomes next years. Not likely but that is my hope.
  19. Am I ever glad to be back on my ship missing all the fun. Please Montreal, don't too burgers at this putz.
  20. Just to play Devil's Advocate, did Lemaire have any coaching experience before entering Nhl? Nope. Not all Nhl players who move into that role are failures. He could be a good coach, probably will be successful, somewhere else.
  21. Well, IMHO, we need to keep DD and hope for a simular result. Bedard or Michkov will make us contenders for years to come. Sell everyone you can this year for 2023 picks. We have a top pick coming this year, that is enough from this year's pool. Next year is a much better class.
  22. My favourite of the top candidates. Now let's stock up on 1st round picks for 2023. We've endured the pain and have a good shot at Shane. Time to suck hard for Bedard. He is generational. I really want a full sell-off and 1 more year of being near the bottom. If we do get Wright, keep him in juniors another year. We have a chance to build a real contender for years to come if we managed back to back first overalls.
