    Always a pleasure to jump into a draft thread full of wife drama from other teams and "player X cost us the Cup" arguments. Is there any information in here actually pertaining to the players we might draft or like to see drafted? lol

    I'd actually be highly interested if JR cleared the 4-5M he'd probably cost.
    He'd thrive in Sully's system(joining/leading the rush/successful pinching/has wheels/good first pass). Offensive numbers would bump back up. Blocks shots. Plays with an edge in his game. Was a minute muncher/hard minutes(heavy DZ starts) on a PO team. Allows you to potentially/eventually move on from Olli. Checks alot of boxes for me.

    It probably won't happen but he's not as bad as that article suggests.

    You're in the Around the NHL thread where we're talking about **** happening around the NHL, I mean...there's the draft thread and the salary thread for exactly what you want for a discussion.

    Just sayin...

    I believe this is what you're looking for:
    http://hfboards.mandatory.com/threads/2018-nhl-entry-draft.2496425/page-4

    On a random note: I really, really don't like these new boards' HTML. It used to be easier to label links with actual descriptions rather than just linking the entire URL.

    Man, those Orpik trade proposals on the main board are hilarious. Trying to pawn him off to any damn team so they can re-sign Carlson. Then you have other Caps fans coming in defending him and omg the team just loves him so much. Wilson said they’ll stop partying when Orpik says it’s time to get back to work!!!1 Gag me.

    Either scenario is going to be funny. Win a cup and trade him for peanuts or lose Carlson to keep him. Orpik is your typical Boston toolbag.

    I'm gonna be honest.

    I lost interest once there was no shot at a Kessel 3-peat to drive him nuts.

    Any time his show gets political it becomes a tire fire, and this last one might have been the last straw. He turned into Big Red for heavens sake.

    He was REEEEEing for like 5 minutes at the mere suggestion of meeting not Trump, but anybody even related to him or affiliated in some manner with him. Like him or not, that’s probably 40% of his listenership he annoyed by being a polarized hack. Adam Wilde, who I often disagree with, was a mature adult by contrast.

    I hope it comes out that Matthews is a huge Trump supporter.

    Leafs fans are the most annoying fans in all of sports.

    I think every member of that podcast made it well know they don’t care about the “40%”.

    Whatever we shouldn’t even be discussing this because the mods are going to get annoyed.

    That’s fine if they don’t from a business standpoint, it’s stupid from a human ignorance and moral assumption stand point and that’s all I’ll say.

    Why are they so obsessed with the Penguins?

    Just wanted to let you know that most Caps fans find this stuff cringe worthy. As soon as I saw it I eye-rolled and unfollowed them.

    I also wanted to note that that tweet is not from the Washington Capitals but the television station that covers them that is owned by Comcast.
