    Absolutely heartbreaking. My thoughts go out to the Staal's

    They have a few guys in the pipeline as well: Colin White, Logan Brown, Chabot

    Yeah, these guys are high end pieces with potential.
    IF you're starting your rebuild with let's say:
    Colin White (top 6 RW/C potential)
    Logan Brown (Huge top 6 C)
    Thomas Chabot (already top 4 NHL D)

    Then add in let's say:
    Sergachev (top 4 NHL D)
    Point (Top line C, potential)

    Then add a top 5 pick this year.

    You'd have a good little foundation. Especially if you can dump Ryan.

    This made me feel better about our regular season woes currently

    New theory: Puljujärvi is intentionally underperforming so he can be traded away from the Oilers

    How terrible for Canes' fans.

    How wonderfully opportunistic for other GM's

    It sounds like Shannon had to much to drink and went onto Twitter. I’d really love to know the source of his info on this one.

    That’s how I’d do it if I bought an NHL franchise.

    The 'Canes press release stated that the new GM would report directly to Dundon, so Shannon is right on the money.

    Didn't realize Trotz was potentially a free agent this summer. He'd definitely be an upgrade and wouldn't be as expensive as Quenneville or even Vigneault.

    Trotz is a great coach but can only take a team so far for whatever reason. He'd be great as a guy to get the team some deep postseason runs for the next few years; then we bring in a real elite guy behind the bench who can get us a cup.

    With the roster Montreal put out against Toronto today, it legitimately looks like they're trying to tank.

    That is said, my thoughts are with his family.

    Sens in full tank mode, they even called up Pat Sieloff who immediately scores this beautiful goal:


    2 goals in 2 career NHL games.

    Sieloff does not support the tank

    Better PPG than Bobby Orr.

    Another awful Treliving trade.

    Jokes aside, I liked Sieloff and hoped he would get himself an opportunity to play. Very similar player to Travis Hamonic, actually.

    I hope the Blues hang on and make the playoffs. Would be a pretty big testament to their players if they finish the end stretch surge after the Stastny trade to do it.

    Also hoping for the Devils to hold on. Always have had a soft spot for that team, and would like to see them make it.

    As long as you ignore talent, skating, puck handling skills, defensive positioning, reading the play offensively and defensively, passing, shooting, fighting, defending.

    But you are right they do both play defense so similar in that way.
