Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

It’s all happening! Bonino to Minnesota for Kunin! Wow. Minnesota fleeced Nashville with the Granlund/Fiala deal and apparently the Wild feel the need to return the favor. Kunin is a former first rounder who is 22 years old and has shown step-by-step improvement every year. He might not be the firs...

Max Domi and a 3rd round pick (2020) to CLB for Josh Anderson https://twitter.com/TSN_Sports/status/1313568467291983872 Hmmm, Columbus gets the player with a better upside, who is not coming off of injury, and the draft pick. Make no mistake, Domi is mercurial. He started promising and then shit th...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Boeser will be sorted out or moved prior to those two bridge deals being extended. 2, 4 and 5/6 year deals should be non starters for the team. Reeks like a guy with one eye on his next team. I don't mind guy who has one eye on his next team if he performs for the current team. Everyone loves the c...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

It’s market value Gohmert. Try to keep up. The "market" depends on more than comparable contracts. The non—arbitration eligible RFA market is determined by three forces. First, the potential of an offer sheet. I know that these are rare, but they keep teams from only relying on force #2: the desira...

Re: We're All Doomed!™ (the Conquest, War, Famine, and Death Thread)

The main difference in Swden's approach compared to most other countries can be seen as threefold: 1) Measures should be sustainable over time (more specifically a two to three year period). This means a hard lockdown is out of the question. 2) Recommendations instead of legislation. There is a hig...

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

While Baertschi cleared waivers twice last year (maybe three times), the fact that his contract is done after this season makes considerable difference in terms of whether its movable. I would think that his performance in the AHL last year would have translated into something pretty similar to what...

Re: We're All Doomed!™ (the Conquest, War, Famine, and Death Thread)

And this Health-health tradeoff point can be made more simply. Do you think there would be excess deaths compared to last year if there was no covid but you shut down or limited “voluntary” health procedures (diagnostic and preventative), people were discouraged from seeking medical treatment, face ...

Re: 2020 NHL OFFSEASON

Elias Pettersson will be staying in Vancouver for the offseason. Not going back to Sweden. If true, I'm surprised. I'm hoping there might be more to it. Something like the Canucks are planning on having safe, practicing facilities available to their players all the way to training camp. https://twi...

Re: We're All Doomed!™ (the Conquest, War, Famine, and Death Thread)

Did you read this part of the medpagetoday.com article you linked to? Several groups with different agendas have been working to undermine public confidence in the credibility of the COVID-19 death count in the U.S. Their efforts will intensify as the numbers continue to rise. The death count is a ...

Re: Goalies moving forward.

There's a lot of moaning about "losing Demko for nothing" or "losing Markstrom for nothing." That's what the expansion draft does. It means you lose a decent player for nothing. Unless your team is crap. Getting something for Demko means that we lost another player for nothing. (We also don't know y...

Re: GDT: R2/G7 Sep 4 Vancouver - Vegas 6:00 Snet - Game Seven!

How does Vegas manage to outnumber us on pucks shorthanded? It's weird... Because they send one hard at the puck at all times and then provide support. Canucks are spread like a zone, when Vegas overpursuit means they only need a single player on the weak side. That and the entry need to be fixed. ...

Re: Sports and Politics

You did such a good job framing this topic, Corn, I thought I'd bump it with a response. I think that one of the worst trends in American society (and I think its true in Canada as well) is the growing expectation that non-political entities should be engaged in political things. There are a lot of ...
