Man i sure hope that BB doesnt sit out any time. That would be a huge run in the joint
Especially when his partner in crime against opposing goalies has; Buffed-up.

Uncle dans leg wrote: Fri Aug 30, 2019 9:00 am So how does our lineup look if Brockett holds out? How likely is he to actually follow through with it?

He doesnt strike me as the type but its the agents that are pulling the strings on this. Theres a half dozen rfas doing the same all around the league. Is it some sort of colluded conspiracy at play? Is it really all about bitch marner?
It’s about Austin Matthews.
Waiting for the first apple to drop bullshit. That's what it is too. Annoying as f**k. It's not just the Marner TO crap, it's also last
year's Nylander TO crap.

To be perfectly honest though, Boeser's is a difficult one. I would be willing to give 7 for 8. But then again, I would also do the 7 for 4 or 5
as well because I just want it done NOW; I like the guy and think he's a franchise player. But;

some could argue there is not enough of a sample size to go more than 5.5 or 6.
some could argue he may be injury prone and suggest a two year deal at around 6.
some could argue the team could sign and trade with the Wild because the team could possibly get tons.
some would even say just get it done even if it's just for 2 years .
some would say give him 8 or 9.
some would say; ask Pettersson, he's an alien, they know stuff.

I hate waiting and will be choked if he misses the entire pre-season. Don't think that works too well.

Thats a phenomenal showing for a pre-camp skate. There's some excitement surrounding the team for the first time in awhile

Did Pettersson have a Sopel summer? He came back something like 20lbs heavier with added muscle (riods?) and his skating speed was reduced dramatically. That whole season was a waste for him and he didn't get his speed back until the following season.

Did he hit the horse roids? That would explain things...

More likely he simply grew up a bit while working out and eating properly.
