    He is eligible to have his contract slide this year. All of the 2019 guys are in the same boat except maybe Fagemo since he's older. Pretty sure it is an age thing.

    This is a good resource for entry-level slides: Entry-Level Slide Candidates - CapFriendly - NHL Salary Caps

    It only counts in he NHL. If Bjornfot plays more than 7 games with the Kings this season, his ELC can no longer slide. I'm assuming he will be sent to Ontario sooner than later even though he's arguably our best LD right now.

    It's also important to note that this only matters for 18 and 19 year olds. That's why Clague is an RFA after this season. His first year slid, he signed with the Kings four years ago.

    I actually have been thinking that Faust has really hit his stride this season. Calling a really good game. Fox has been really restrained in the awkward jokes, and the delivery and handoffs between the two is so much better than seasons past. Fox has a great eye for little smart tidbits, but no good on banter. This season he's been almost all business, which is great.

    All business until his outburst on the Quick save in the 3rd period last night lol. You'd have thought that save clinched a Cup victory.

    Seems dramatic. I don't even hear it 99% of the time.

    i was one of the biggest whiners about that at the beginning of the season and to be honest, i haven't even noticed it since the 2nd or 3rd game. it was definitely really bad early on but i think they sorted it out

    His mind is always blown when Quick goes post to post. He is still kinda new. We've been watching Quick do that for ten years.

    Don't know what to say. We heard it last night.

    The worst is when the puck is frozen, they keep piping the white noise as the skaters are changing lines, etc.

    :dunno:

    I dunno, there's always low level crowd noise when there are people at the rink, even during stoppages. I think you would find it even more unsettling if it was Faust, Fox, and dead air. To each their own.

    It was much worse to start the season as it actually drowned out whistles.

    See what winning does. Even Faust is getting love now. Young D core, that 4th line, Brown, and even Quick.

    What do you think it would cost to get Seattle to take Amadio? A third? I'd consider it. Can someone start a petition?

    Oh for sure. Even more impressive. Just referencing the technique!

    Agreed. His versatility is working against him defining a role, but it is also helping keep him in the lineup. I guess they will decide on where he fits once they see what the others bring. He definitely brings something different and we will need a few of those grittier players to support the guys with more finesse in their games. I’m really hoping he can carve out a spot going forward as I think there is plenty of upside there.

    I’d let a year of the contract get eaten up and keep him in. There needs to be some stability on the backend to give a platform for the prospects to develop. Björnfot brings a great temperament that only helps those around him. Yes it’s an issue with his contract but we can’t develop players with a chaotic blue line, Björnfot really helps stabilize things if he maintains that level he has set.

    Hopefully that is the case. I feel like he doesn't quite have the offensive upside to play a top-6 role, especially not with the armada of talent waiting in the pipeline. He doesn't have the speed / skating of Moore, JAD or Wagner which is key in 'today's' NHL. But if he can show more of that compete element, I think he has enough skill to be a very good 3rd or 4th line player on playoff contending team.

    I'm a fan of Andersson so I'm hoping he succeeds.

    You can't trust goalies. They will cheat their asses off every time. Exhibit A:

    Those pads won a Conn Smythe after all.
