    Re: 2019 NHL Draft Thread

    I have seen some mock drafts where somehow Spencer Knight fell all the way to our second-rounder opportunities.

    However, I don't believe that's actually going to happen because I have also seen...

    This makes sense considering Buffalo's new GM, Jason Botterill, was an assistant GM for the Penguins when Bales was first hired as a goalie development coach and amateur scout in 2011 and then...
  4. Re: Stanley Cup Finals Notes ... and the post season narrative takeaways

    Hard to maintain any buzz at all when days go by between games.

    Heck, know we got swept, but the last Eastern Conference Final game was 27 days ago.

    Yeah, I'm in the big whoop camp as well.

    Checkers ability to go with alternating goalies in the playoffs was a huge advantage, especially with the AHL's compressed schedule of back-to-backs.

    I thought this was the case, but apparently Nedeljkovic has one more season before he has to clear waivers in '20-'21 to be sent down to the AHL.
