    You can say (spin) Winnipeg young core is just "supporting" the two old guys you are referring to (one of which is Scheifele presumably who is just 25), but I think that they are doing way more than just supporting their two good old guys. Is Andersen just supporting our vital, good, young guys, or is he a necessary piece? He is 28 btw. LOL.

    One. Goalies timelines are different. But we also have sparks.
    I don’t think you get it. Winnipeg was “the leafs” about 4 years ago. They drafted Scheifele and trouba. Made the playoffs.... and flopped. Last year. Flop. They have lost and now look good, but are only up 1 game on minny. Anything can happen.

    Take Wheeler, scheif and buff and put them on the leafs. Take jvr, bozak and Who Z? And put them on the jets..... totally different story.

    Pastrnak and mcavoy look great. Take Bergeron and Marchand and Chara away and how well do you think they would be. Doing in the playoffs. Mentoring matters.

    They are on a team with a bunch to prove. The vets are leading the charge. You can star on a secondary role and Learn to excel way easier than being the focal point from the start.

    Dats and z were insulated. Getz and perry had a hof d and Selanne.

    Oh, I get it. But more importantly, I think this has runs its course & its time to move on. The only point I was making is that several (many) teams have good/great young players.

    Agreed. And none of them are leading the charge for their teams and are being mentored in secondary roles. Our next batch will be able to do the same.

    Ps. “I don’t think you get it” may have come off as condescending. Not my intent. My apologies

    Yeah. I consider Jets the gold standard for up and coming teams. They are a stronger, more well-rounded team than us, and they have better incoming talent.

    So yeah...am I the only Hedman should get a penalty or something for hitting someone between the legs with his stick? That has to be against the rules somewhere.

    C is the one weakness in our pipeline. Our strengths were on the wing and on D - and you can see how well Kapanen/Johnsson and Dermott have looked. Imo, our two best prospects (Timmy and Grundstrom) are both about a year away.

    Ducks are down 3-0 after being a vernier meltdown away from the finals last year. This is a hard league. People here expecting so much are nuts. “It’s a mistake to trade a 2 for a chance to win” unless you win a cup

    I thought they had the best defensive core in the league? And they are super big and strong and bad and whatever else...

    Huh...

    Evander Kane has really helped their scoring depth, he's been on a huge run since he's joined them. Maybe He's the guy to finally put them over the top?

    I also think it is a waste of money to buy a lottery ticket unless you win.

    Kane needed to grow up, but maybe he also needed a team with leadership. Jets no playoffs while he was there, and Buffalo has been a disaster for years. Byfuglien throwing his clothes in the shower is showing real maturity and leadership!

    In San Jose all he has to do is follow and produce. I'm guessing this rental turns permanent.

    With our forward depth, he really didn't get a fare shake from our Leafs!

    Leafs are the more attractive destination for FAs so perhaps we can use that route to close the gap.

    No Suter, no Parise. That's really tough for Minny.
