Re: GDT: 18/12/18; Bolts vs Canucks, 7pm SNETP

Loved the overall response, particularly Gudbranson's uppercut, to some pretty greasy play by Tampa. The opposite of Sedinery.

Re: Injury Update 2018-19

Now Joulevi is out the rest of the season, great, don't want to harp on the pick too much but man have we been screwed by it. I am not blaming the player here or management, you can never predict injuries, but it seems like if we didn't have bad luck with him we would have no luck at all. Another s...

Re: 2016 NHL ENTRY DRAFT

Hey Blob, may we remind you... 1. Juolevi had off season back surgery putting him behind in his off season training, apparently didn't start high impact training until just before training camp 2. Was felled this season after playing quite well with a bad knee AND, may I add AND still hasn't recove...

Trade the 13th overall pick to Nashville for Fabbro? Ya gotta like that Bubbles?
If Jimbo can secure another 1st rounder, sure. Do you think he'd host the draft without any picks on Friday night?

Tkachuk up to 37 points in the season
Excellent, hopefully they give him an $80M contract this summer

... and he spends it all on groceries like his old man. 8-)
:lol: that's pretty good. Hopefully Boeser signs first...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Other than Reef's tigger reply, the funniest part of this is the situation when the trade was made. Johansen was clearly not a Torts guy and had to go, Jones was progressing but didn't breakout until the year after the trade. If Brock were in Green's doghouse, which he isn't, the equivalent deal ma...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

I thought you were a preacher for a patient rebuild? I am. Which is why I don’t want to make any trade that fixes one gap by creating another. Drafting/developing is the way to go. Hopefully Juolevi develops into a useful top-4 for us, but he’s not trending “impact player” like some of the others i...

The book is not written on Juolevi, Grasshopper Certainly not, just pointing out that we could really use some young NHL-ready dmen. I thought you were a preacher for a patient rebuild? I am.

Re: Canucks Young Guns

My issue is the gaping hole on the back end. If you could shore up a massive weakness from a position of strength, why the fuck wouldnt you? Because its not a "position of strength" if you let Boeser go Who replaces him?????? Bingo. We're not exactly stacked at forward. Columbus could afford to mov...

Skyo can’t handle a rebuild
Skyo loves his trades. He should be focused on who's leaving.

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

Might be able to get JT Miller thanks to cap, hf If we have the option to move Callahan's contract, that would be Plan A over trading Miller. I think we're going to have to trade Miller too though, and I'm not expecting a huge return. Some western team is gonna get a gift. Or maybe the Senators, un...

Re: OOTS 2018-2019

He tuned the piss out of Prout after that. Still the toughest imho until someone takes it away from him. Wilson isn’t a good fighter but he hits like a bus And I think that makes him more dangerous if you're an opponent (you can't turtle if he scrambles your noodle!). There's also the fact that, un...

Re: OOTS 2018-2019

Caps vs Pacific division elite Knights was the game of the night, topped off with a heavyweight battle of Reaves knocking out (bodycheck wise) Wilson. Love the talk from the Capitals coach, lets call the kettle black. It was a late hit but nothing more than Wilson has done countless times. Hope Wil...
