  3. Re: Stanley Cup Finals Notes ... and the post season narrative takeaways

    The one thing that sat in my craw this post-season was how much the league inserts itself into the game:
    1.) The officiating was inconsistent and games/series are called differently;
    2.) The number...

    Re: 2019 NHL Draft Thread

    I've never been to a draft party and so, not a big disappointment to me.

    I went to get a feel for how things felt around the arena. Love the description of the new scoreboard-- the screen...

    That's quite the list, Cmal. Almost any guy (not an Eichel fan!) on that list is worthy of building a team around and some teams have, but no way Skinner belongs there. He is not a guy you build...

    I'd love to see an upgrade on the wing and continue the hard checking, fast big body theme. He's not there yet, but Gauthier sure checks many of those boxes and he seems to be trending up on the...

    I see Boone Jenner in the same mold as Jordan Staal, younger, cheaper and perhaps not as good. I really think we need a creative #1 in the mold of Ryan Getzlaf when he was younger-- physical, hulking...

    I read your words about not falling in love "your guy" but I am still gobsmacked over the RF selection of Paradis over O'Reilly, who was "my guy." Not sure if that would have ever worked here given...

    I think in this deal, Jack Johnson was the one JR coveted that got away. He finally got him, yet it was too little, too late and now needs to get younger on defense. I think taking Johnson is JR's...

    Pierre McGuire was on NHL radio the other day and while he retains facts like an idiot savant, his opinions are nauseating. His take is you can either have a league with hitting or without hitting....

    I also want to point out that Canes had Torey Krug in camp one year and let him go because of size, yet we drafted Ryan sMurphy. Krug went on to be picked up by Boston. When someone claims size as an...

    I hope Voynov never plays another day in the NHL and comes out with a policy that finds support in the NHLPA. There will be some GM in the league who will need defensive help come January and he'll...

    Same here! He's the best singer songwriter since Springsteen hit the scene. I'd easily out him in the same category as Springsteen, Dylan, Simon.

    Dundon's money grab with the team wearing Whaler uniforms and the re-tethering of the org to the Whale set us up for that. We deserve the jibes and lip on that-- I hate it and while it was a fun...
