    Yeah they are a blast right now, went to the game last night and they made it a fun night for sure also winning 4-0 and dominating the first and third, although they had a terrible second period.

    The Bruins are so lucky. The best players are all locked up long term and the young RFAs are having mediocre years with their contracts coming up. It's nice not to be in cap hell for once.

    TB will also have to make plenty of changes for next year with a little more than 73M commited for only 15 players for 19-20 and that doesn't even include Point who should get a 7-8M Cap increase starting next year (earns only 0,7M this year).

    I think Barkov being the Selke winner while being on pace for about a -30 and having his worst statistical year defensively is sort of humorous :popcorn:

    This guy needs to pull his head out of his ass. What a complete moron. Does he even understand the criteria for the Selke trophy? Bergeron has 38 pts in 27 games, shooting pct of 16%, faceoff pct of 55.7, is the best defensive forward on a team that is super elite in goals against avg, has insane advanced stats, and is +7. Barkov has less pts per game than Bergy, is -13, has a lower faceoff %, lower shooting %, and worse advanced stats. Hell, Bergy isn't even a finalist in this idiot's list.

    I just don't understand where this huge push for Barkov to win the Selke is coming from, he isn't even playing good this season. Maybe last season he deserved to be a finalist but I seriously don't get it.

    Seems like people think "hes due", somehow Bergy's season is completely under the radar.

    Funny how Bergy keeps not getting the Selke when he deserves it because someone is due. I know he already has a bunch, but he has deserved at least a couple or few more. Same **** happened to Chara multiple times for the Norris. It's egregious that one of the greatest shutdown defenders in the history of the NHL has only 1 Norris.

    Ha, Preds made Chicago look silly in OT. Forsberg is really good.

    Didn't really look like a loss to me, he got some good shots in- Reaves pulled him off balance, not knocked him out ;)

    signing just their top 2 players {I will call it 22 mill between the 2 of them you divide it up as you like}

    * Austin Matthews 11 mill
    * Mitch Marner 11 mill
    John Tavares 11 mill
    william nylander 6,962,366
    Patrick marleau 6,250,000
    Nazem Kadri 4,500,000
    Zach Hyman 2,250,000
    Connor Brown 2,100,000
    Frank Gautier .675,000
    ----------------------
    morgan rielly 5 mill
    nikita zaitsev 4,500,000
    travis dermott .863,333
    justin holl .675,000
    --------------------
    frederik anderson 5,000,000

    = 14 players signed for 71,785,366

    9 players left to sign... say 8 sign for 900k each elc takes us 79 mill with 1/3 of team all elc contract

    how much will cap go up... will it be enough to sign gardiner? or another 20 min/anight dmen?

    the leafs are as good as they will ever be today... they have maxed out. theres no room to add a needed dman

    you will notice I left some of their important players off my list... rfa/ufa… zero chance to sign them given the reality of this bleak situation

    can they trade nylander for a dman? sure... why not
    will they get rid of marleau {shouldn't have signed him in first place}

    what will that do to their fabulous forward depth? will they still be anything special to talk about with his 4 above average forwards left to carry the load?

    they better hope for miracle goaltending because that d looks putrid once gardnier and hainsey are gone and replaced with two elc contracts

    everyone is going to know they are desperately looking to deal marleau/nylander for a dman… vultures will be circling.

    and people told me this was a 'good problem' to have. fans will be rioting when Toronto is shotgunned into bad trades and falls short of a sniff of the cup. will they even win a playoff round before they have to break up this team?

    labour shutdown coming in the next cba negotiation and Toronto will be leading the war wagons

    I dont see leafs fans rioting, they are very used to losing every year it's kind of a tradition. I also expect the worst owner in pro sports Jermey Jacobs to lead the lock out. That's his tradition too
