Re: Goalies moving forward.

Agree, why we would sign Lundquist for more than a year ? He is also 38 and his best years are behind him, I am not against signing him for to be a 1A and mentor for Demko but I would only do it for a year. We do need to expose an NHL goalie in the X draft, and I don't know if Domingue would re sig...

Re: Goalies moving forward.

Not sure if this is crazy. With Lundquist being bought out, he is basically already being paid for the 20/21 season and could be willing to sign for pennies on the dollar. This is a guy who has been one of the best goalies in the world for the past fifteen years. If we go the route of trading Marks...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 19-20 Sponsored by SKYO

Yup Lundqvist is getting bought out. I'm sure if Marky is moving on, Petey is on the phone to encourage Henrik to sign here el cheapo for a year. Is that the rumour? They must be going after Pietrangelo, and they must know its gonna cost $10mil ish. They already have $20mil in cap space, and seven ...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 19-20 Sponsored by SKYO

So, hypothetically speaking, .............................would you spend next year's 1st to get 6mil in extra cap space over the next two years? Honestly, not sure I would. I'm with you. Unless there was a realistic shot at a great high-end UFA on a good contract - like, Pietro for $7.5 mil, Barri...

Re: 2019-20 NHL Playoffs

Was everyone booing Bettman at home? Bettman and the NHL should take a bow. I LOL at the anger a lot of folks have towards the guy. He’s a darn good commissioner at the end of the day... but yeah if you don’t like rodent looking smarmy fucks I can see why he’d be on your shit list. I was actually s...

Re: 2019-20 NHL Playoffs

So, Tampa's cup comes 12 years after tanking for Stamkos.

The year after the Blues win 13 years after getting 1st OA.

Does this mean Benning will be a genius if he gets us to the promised land within a decade?

Re: 2019-20 NHL Playoffs

There's a lot of stars players for whom this is likely their last shot at the Cup:

Pavelski, Benn, Perry, Radulov.

I wonder if Seguin will get another sniff at the Cup...12 points in 25 games for $9.85 mil makes me think he'll be a true boat anchor.

Re: Canucks Young Guns

I wonder what Trotz would have accomplished had he come here instead of Willie. I think he is one of the best coaches in the league. I was a little iffy on his performance in Nashville, but to go from a decade there to a high-octane Caps squad and FINALLY get them over the hump, and to then go to th...

I remember hearing Trotz being interviewed a few times before the Capitals hired him and he was lobbying or was a candidate for the Canucks job but they ended up hiring Willie D. What a mistake.
Can you believe Willie turned down Pittsburgh to come here as well? Yikes!

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Rangers trade Staal plus a 2nd pick to Detroit for future considerations. I don't get it, Rangers have heaps of cap space, and are projecting to have 7 or 8 ELCs on the roster next year. After next year, Staal, Lundqvist and the Shattenkirk buyout would have given them over $20 mil anyways, why giv...

Re: Pre-draft & pre-free-agent day speculation

I think Benning absolutely should be making a play for Petro....even if it means goodbye to Tanev and Markstrom. The kids showed they are ready right now, time to surround them with elite pieces like AP. The rebuild is over, the window is open and its time to go all in. I guess I agree, but I'm mor...

Re: Players You Hate

Guy made out like a bandit and ended up with way more money than if he had continued playing. Bertuzzi did him a favour, making him a martyr to some people while padding his bank account. I'd love to know the outcome. I dug into this years ago, but basically Moore was a handful of NHL games shy of ...

Re: Pre-draft & pre-free-agent day speculation

I think there will be much less action than speculated. I expect a Toffoli signing and the other UFAs going to market. The top six will stay the same as the playoffs to start next season. MacEwen and Hoglander will push the status quo to join the bottom six. I think the RFAs will be qualified. Benn...

virtanen & eriksson for colin miller & be done with it. sabres have $33M in cap. If you were Loui, and had a15 team no trade list, don't you think buffalo would be on it?
