Re: 2019 offseason

Sounds like Winnipeg cap situation means Chevy is gonna have his hands full with any contract talks with Trouba. If you’re Benning do you offer Tavev and a pick or piece for his rights or a sign and trade deal? Tanev fits that RS spot and is cheaper for another year. No. It would have to be a big p...

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

Not from what I’ve seen of these playoffs- size and speed and a quick mobile defence. The more I see of Newhook I like. He’s definitely raised his stock playing with his draft peers. I’d say he’s put an end to scouts being concerned with him being a BCHL’er NO to Podkozlin Agreed. Even though every...

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

Rumors in Pittsburgh that the Pens will try to move Kessel this off-season. They need cheap, young players back - this might be the only scenario I'd be okay with trading Jake. Phil the Thrill will struggle with west coast travel and the lack of greasy burger joints, at a 6.8 mil cap hit I think he...

I keep remembering, I’m not cheering for Boston to win, I’m cheering for Toronto to lose. The moment this series is over, no matter the winner, I’m cheering for Columbus round two.

You consider Platoon a comedy? :o

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

Sure the free agents help. Who said they didn’t? But hanging onto existing and acquiring more draft picks puts more prospects in the pipeline. After five years on the job there might be one prospect currently in Utica that can make the jump and play on the 4th line. That is horrendous. Regarding ‘e...

Re: 2018-2019 Playoffs - Round 1

I believe if memory serves the 2018-19 Canucks beat your expectations in its first season without the Sedins. You were calling them to be the unchallenged favourites for Jack Hughes. There were 9 teams worst than us in our first year without the twins. Last year I believe there were 6 teams worst t...

Re: 2018-2019 Playoffs - Round 1

Incorrect, just bringing up the Avs decade long rebuild while you shit talk Bennings rebuild in that rebuilding is not cut and dry black and white as you assume it to be, market demands, owners demands, current contracts, loyalty to the Sedins, etc. On top of that you continue to ignore the shit sh...

Re: 2018-2019 Playoffs - Round 1

The first step is to be a consistent presence. Think Tampa, Nashville, Boston, Pittsburgh, San Jose, Washington etc. Every year there’s dozens of things that can/do go wrong (luck, injuries, hot opponent, cold goalie, bad calls), but ya gotta be there at least. Tampa lost in the final in 2015, and ...

Re: 2018-2019 Playoffs - Round 1

Blob's favourite general managed & scouted/drafted teams all could be knocked out 1st round. Tampa Bay - swept Flames - out Preds (GM Poile) - down 3-2 in series to the Stars. Jets down 2-0 in game 6, could get knocked out. Just to show, even if you do everything "right" according to the experts, t...

So let me get this straight. They miss the playoffs 3 years in a row getting Landeskog and MacKinnon our of it. They then make the playoffs 1 year then folliw that with another 3 year run of missing the playoffs getting Rantanen, Jost and Makar out of the lottery. Apparently not a long rebuild beca...

Re: 2019 offseason

No way! Benning was hot to land either Lucic or Ericksson. His first choice was Lucic and we know Lucic thought life would be great in Edmonton with McJesus and a new building to play in. Benning’s second choice was Louie all the way. Benning gets no kinda pass on this one. I think linden was prett...

Re: 2018-2019 Playoffs - Round 1

That's some kind of yo-yo 10 years there, not sure what you call it. Looks like a decade of a confused hockey team with a myriad of lottery pickings wildcard sneak ins. But those tank lottery years (6 of them) they sure benefitted. Ya think they finally got it figured out after a decade of yo-yo-in...
