This scenario arises every year, nothing happens.

No one learns.
What scenario is that, people complaining about unrealistic trades in the trade fantasy thread?

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 18-19 Sponsored by SKYO

LA firing John Stevens was fairly unconventional, given where they were in the season and the injuries they've dealt with. They clearly thought they were "salvaging" the season with that move, now they're down 2 goalies. If they blow the next 2-4 weeks waiting for their goalies to come back, the sea...

Kings lose another goalie, with Jack Campbell out 4-6 weeks.

When Nilsson comes back, I'd love to see JB pull a pick out of LA for a goalie - especially since I think it'll be a high, high pick this year.

I thought you’d be gowed up at the Legion pounding on a table for the waitress to refill your pitcher of draft and deciding on chicken tenders or the double burger for lunch.
Waitress?

At the Legion?

You must really be a regular to get that kind of service!

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

I thought the general rule of thumb was that if a fired head coach was hired by another team as head coach then the former team could just pay the difference in the salary for the remainder of his tenure. Obviously a severance package would change that. But it would also free the coach up to go whe...

Re: The Official CC "All Thing Leaves" thread

It's interesting to me that suddenly it was a lock all along Tavares was going to Toronto and never wanted to stay in Long Island. I NEVER heard that prior to July 1st. Toronto was not seen as a team that had much of a chance. It was San Jose, Tampa or the Islanders in almost everyone's mind. It's ...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Quenneville's contract runs thru 2019-20. Is he just paid a flat severance or does he have to avoid being hired by another team in order to continue collecting a paycheque? If the latter, then he has plenty of time to make a decision on which young and upcoming contender he wants to join ;) ;) This...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 18-19 Sponsored by SKYO

Those sad, sad Kings.

They should be rebuilding, but instead they think they need to go all-in.

They also don't have the cap space to re-sign Nylander and not be terrible. They should be trying to shed shitty contracts, instead they want to trade for and then overpay Nylander.

Re: When will the Canucks Next make the playoffs

Last year they were also healthy through the first 15.

This year there in the midst of injury apocalypse, and a difficult road-heavy schedule.

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

I think the Kesler comparison for Gaudette is good, because remember how offensively inept Kesler seemed in his first couple of seasons.

Certainly nobody thought he'd turn into a 40-goal scorer in his prime. He just kept getting incrementally better offensively.
