    The only thing I took out of this is you saying Makar isn't special.

    I was commenting on the "it's quiet" part of Balth's post than anything to do with Makar's talent. He isn't going to be PPG player in the pros, that's for sure, just as Quinn Hughes won't be either.

    E: When I meant "special", I was talking about Rasmus Dahlin or Seth Jones type of defenders. I would be surprised if Makar becomes THAT good.

    Dahlin and Jones are the type of dmen you build your team around but what Makar brings is special . With his speed and his talent and the new NHL, I can not wait to see him join the Avs.

    Makar, Girard and Timmins will form a very nice group

    Well screw HC for the ridiculous treatment of Makar at the World Juniors , I'm happy Makar remembers.

    Nobody cares about the Spengler Cup and the World Championships are just a vacation for the boys .

    As far as the Olympics NHL players might never play in them again npr should they , they're for amateur sports. Bring back the World Cup for a best on best and not the silly format of the last one :facepalm:

    Bud Jones was a 4th overall and Makar was a 4th overall, why can't Makar be as good . Jones is ok but he's nothing special in any specific way . Makar is , his skills are superior to Jones . I don't see things your way nor do I have to . Go pound sand.

    If Jones was as special as you say, Nashville would have never traded him and especially not for Ryan Johanssen . Now bog off with ur nonsense, I'm not 1 of your club of delusionals .

    If I could add any defensemen in the NHL right now based on everything (ability, age, contract, fit) I think I go get Seth Jones. It's between Jones, Dahlin and Hedman but I'm pretty sure Jones would be my guy.

    Not gonna lie, I don't think you really run a foolproof method of how you evaluate hockey players. Thats twice I've seen you evaluate a hockey player based on nothing to do with the game of hockey itself. You compared Makar to Jones because of their draft position even though 5 years separate them, one plays NCAA hockey and the other is one of, if not the best defensemen on the planet. Then you evaluated Jones current talent based on his trade return from like 3 years ago. You must think Matt Duchene is a modern day Gretzky.

    You lost me in the Duchene thing , thing Jones was as good as you say why would Nashville ever trade him. I wasn't comparing Makar and Jones at all , i was rebutting the argument that Makar never had a chance to be as good Jones . Go back and read.

    Jones the best on the planet lololololol I know Newfies aren't known for their brains , hence the Newfie jokes , but that is simply hilarious.

    Teams make mistakes....



    Nashville thought they had a great Dcore already and had a major need for a #1C. They moved Jones because they had at the time Weber, and Josi.


    There's not a single doubt in my mind that if Nashville had the time back they would not have made that specific trade and instead would have kept Jones and used another Dman to get that #1C. Jones is the best Dman on both Nashville and Columbus rosters at this point.


    Like Cousin Eddie said, right now there's maybe 2 Dmen in the entire league with more value then Jones. Maybe.

    Yes the player in question (Seth Jones in case you’re as dense as you come off in your posts) finished 4th in voting for the Norris trophy just last season. He’s an elite 1D in the NHL.

    There are only two I would take over him. Dahlin because of ceiling and Hedman because he does everything but considering age and all that jazz I might even still lean towards Jones over Hedman. Seth Jones is a special player all anyone needs to do is watch him for an extended amount of time to see this.

    Isn't this Fox's to lose now? Or are they going to keep him out because ECAC plays fewer games?

    Hm, Priskie and Q. have played 17 games, Fox and Harvard 11. Is it just Havard that's got a very tilted schedule?

    A buddy gave me a Drummondville rugby style shirt with the collar a few weeks ago so maybe I'll have a reason to wear it lol . Black and red stripes with the white collar lol

    I'm due for a Moncton Wildcats game soon so Drummondville would be a good team to see especially if Bowers ends up there. Surprised Halifax didn't go after his rights actually , or maybe they tried
