    I'm curious who the fourth is.

    Skinner? Starrett?

    Skinner imo pulled ahead of Starrett. Also with how much Starrett was injured this year they may want a guy who has played more games recently.

    Skinner seems to be the guy IMO, considering he was here in the first group of 6. Skinner was also the better of the two this year.

    Even if it was originally Starrett, the team might look at Skinner's commitment and reward him.

    I’m right with you on all 4 points.

    We likely miss the playoffs in 16/17 if we don’t have Larsson back there playing like an elite shutdown dman.

    Pulju is looking like a disappointment, but that draft had a big 3, and every other fanbase was envious we got one with the 4th pick.

    Lucic was a beast the first year. There was no way of predicting he’d go for Christmas break in 2017, and suddenly lose the ability to put up points when he returned.

    And ya. Holland is clearly the better GM. Chia is the guy willing to overpay to get what he wants. Holland is the guy making him overpay.

    That’s interesting Rodrigue is coming. I’m a huge fan of his, and statistically it looked like he had a pretty strong year, but you’d assume we’d bring in Skinner and Starrett

    That POS should’ve been fired on the spot. Went full Milbury twice within days.

    I think you’re underestimating how bad Milbury was.

    those 3 weren’t even his worst moves.

    trading for reinhart was.

    The Reinhart trade was horrific but I think the Lucic signing was much worse. He was great during the cup run though, and Neal was pretty spicy at the start of the season too.. maybe you are right :O

    The biggest issue with Chia was that he couldn't admit fault. (Yes, worse than the overpays...)

    In his first year and a half he was actually decent for improving the (RE: MacT's) roster. Even with the massive overpays, the roster was still better.

    He overhauled the defence with Sekera, Russell, Larsson, and Benning; and underperforming vets like Ference and Fayne were pushed out.

    He even made a few good savvy moves for Maroon, Kassan, Talbot, and Nilsson; bringing in NHL'ers for busts, low picks, or guys who were done.


    However when his guys started to under perform, they weren't held to the same level of accountability as Fayne or Pouliot.

    The little moves to improve the roster dried up, as guys like Letestu, Lucic, Caggiula all unquestionably deserved their top 9 spots. Plus a teenage Puljujarvi or Yamamoto would be enough to replace Eberle; so why would more outside help be needed?

    If I'm not mistaken, the only pick/prospect for NHL'er trade he made post-Hall (so purely adding to the roster, and not taking someone off it) was the Petrovic trade. Otherwise any trade always involved taking an equivalent (or better) piece off the active roster.

    Davidson for DD
    Eberle for Strome
    Jokinen for Cammy
    Strome for Spooner
    Caggiula/Garrison for Manning

    Am I correct in stating that if the player in practicing in phase 2, that he has cleared the COVID testing regime?

    Are they not building that other high-rise in that location anymore?

    The ice district website still shows the residence tower in that location.

    The podium portion will be constructed first. Unfortunately the residential building turned from a luxury high-rise to a mediocre rental.

    Ah okay, so they are just starting the podium, which has the grocery, and then the high rise is going ahead, but the high rise is just "not as fancy". Is that correct?

    Which is all dumb. Downtown doesn't need another damn highrise. Especially cause all the new "mediocre" rentals cost stupid amounts to rent anyways

    That looks like the same picture from a while ago - that crane has been there for some time now.
