Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 17-18 Sponsored by SKYO

Toronto yes, Montreal no. Weber is a declining asset, turns 33 this summer. Price is trending in the wrong direction, one of the worst prospect pools in the league, Drouin is overrated, Pacioretty wants out. The Habs are in quite an awful state not to mention it’s a Syberian winter off the St Lawre...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 17-18 Sponsored by SKYO

Ah who is EK? Eklund. Yeah, insert Toronto, Montreal, or Vancouver into any/every "rumour" = clicks = Ad $. Since we can't even speak to him until the end of the month, I'm not sure why we would be on his "visit list" at this point. A 5 team visit list.....you definitely make a good point about why...

He likes getting up in my grill. I think I'm inside his head causing him some great torment, and this is without me even trying.

Eklund.
Well, that fantasy was short lived
HW has 200% more credibility than anything you post.

I say that with all the respect due to the biggest flip flopped on CC.
Was I talking about HW? I was referring to the ever so reliable word of the great Eklund.

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 17-18 Sponsored by SKYO

So EK posted today that Vancouver is on Tavares 5 team visit list. So I contacted a friend and asked. He told me that he has been told that JT's first option is to sign long term with NYI. But, he liked Snow but had lost confidence in him and he really liked Weight and was disappointed to see him g...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 17-18 Sponsored by SKYO

It will be interesting. Benning has dropped the hint a few times that they are looking to sign a couple key UFA vets on big (per year), short term contracts. Ya gotta think that the likes of Stastny and Filppula are looking for term so I’m a little curious about how this will happen. I get the sense...

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

Yeah Newhook has taken over the world by storm the last few months. He’s definitely leap frogged Cozens and Bryam as the top Canadian to be selected in the 2019 draft. Him and that Finn Kakko will battle it out to being the 2nd to go after Hughes There is actually a very strong and deep class of Can...

Re: The 2018 NHL Entry Draft

The Habs apparently were pretty impressed with Kotkaniemi after the whine and dine with him during the combine. I’m surprised with the D rumours. Mete looks like a great prospect and Juulsen had a bit of a coming out last season but then again their top prospect - Poehling is a centre. They could us...

Re: Trade rumours & armchair pipe dreams 17-18 Sponsored by SKYO

Would you be happier $20M under the cap without Stastny or $10M under the cap with Stastny. No point in wasting that cap space for the next 2 years. I'd rather have 1-2 more 2nd's to use at the 2019 draft (we are hosting). Score draft picks for taking on possible buyout candidates like Spezza, Gabo...
