    Beautiful speech by Lehner. Straight from the heart.

    Didn’t realize Muzzin’s dad was a hockey writer. I’m an open minded guy, but there is absolutely no argument, that is grounded in reality, for him being the 3rd best D in the league last year.

    Exactly why a bunch of reporters were ever given the authority to determine the winners of these awards remains a mystery. Same stuff happens in the NBA. A coach or peer-voted system, regardless of their pitfall(s), would make way more sense.

    Well done Price and the NHL, sometimes we forget this is just a game.

    Meh.. not defending Hayes's deal but what you said can be said to any players.. until they win a cup.

    Ovechkin was a loser. Kuznetsov is like any other russians. Eller is garbage. Tarasenko is like Kuznetsov. Maroon is garbage. Perron is garbage. Boumeester is a definition of a loser. And what about O'Reilly, the Conn Smythe winner, who apparently stopped playing after getting paid. All kind of players that nobody thought would be a good enough to win a stanley cup but every years, there's always some that show people wrong.

    I don't believe the theory that one player is not a winner, or not a type of player you win with. I don't like Drouin but I think if he plays in a good environment, he can contribute to any team to win the SC. Exactly like what Perron did. 5 differents teams in like 5 years. Nobody wanted him. His reputation wasn't the best and yet he proved to St. Louis and anyone else that he can play like a winner too.

    Again, not defending Hayes, or saying that I would take him at 7M$.. just arguing that fact that we shouldn't pencil a player as a "not a player you win championship with". Hayes could very well contribute in own way to a SC championship.

    This NHL Awards is actually entertaining this year. Kenan Thompson is the best host in I don't even know how long.

    Hard to believe, Wayne Simmonds beats Weber for the Messier leadership award this season. It's okay Weber, your name will always be associated with Simmonds as the ultimate leader in the NHL.

    His mother passed away earlier this year. And before she passed, she was trying to arrange a meeting between her son and his favorite player, Carey.

    She passed away before she can set the meeting up. But I believe his uncle took charge and arranged a meeting that lead to this moment after one of Habs' practices on the road:

    "...may be willing to move Connor Brown for a 2nd RD pick just to clear the space."

    No one is paying that for Brown.

    Trebek, respect!

    And he knows what's up, he grew up a Canadiens fan.

    Pulju suck, his value is less than a 3rd round pick.

    What’s with all the talk of trades, awards, Selke votes and Price showing us he’s a class guy? The BIGGEST news by far is we are finally getting a battle royale mode in a hockey video game. Add to this, Matthews will be on the cover.

    I caught the NHL Awards midway through the show. But what I saw, was fun. This had to be one of the better NHL Awards in a long time.

    Kenan Thompson was a very entertaining host with a lot of funny segments. And for me, the funniest part of the show were the segments between Tony Babcock in a segment with each of the Hart Trophy nominees. These two had the room laughing. We know how dull hockey players can be. You see and hear them laughing.

    Not to mention, Robin Lehner's speech about battling mental illness was inspirational. "I'm not ashamed to say i'm mentally ill. But that doesn't mean I'm mentally weak."

    And of course, the Carey Price segment was absolutely special.

    We have so many 3rd line forwards it’s sickening
    If and when Bergevin strikes out, he will have to maybe get a player like this who has so upside
    Shaw, Byron, armia and leks are nice players but they have no upside at all. What you see is what you get now
    Our top 2 lines lack talent and size

    Superstars are less common and cost more.

    Seth Jones is criminally underrated.

    True. Even Danault, Tatar and Gallagher, all nice pieces, have little room to improve. They could, dont read me wrong. Will Drouin take next step? Kotka will have to avoid the dreaded sophomore slump and Poehling will have to step in.
