    Legend or not I leave for others to say.
    What will happen is when I call it like this, and have crap hurled at me constantly from every angle by some, only to then be proven right, then those who threw it are gonna chew [on] it.

    Admit it.
    Bend buckle and break in speaking the truth.
    I was WAY WAY WAY ahead on predicting how good Krav would be, good enuf to be a C, and he should not be dealt in a package for Eichel.

    We are not buying out Kreider unless he becomes injured, turns into Drury.

    Trouba is likely here upwards of 3 years. There is a chance he can be bribed to waive to FL where his wife works.

    We avoid trouble at the pass now by dealing Strome + Buch

    Kravtsov on 4th ine is a waste

    Kakko-Krav-Panarin
    LaF-Chytil-Gauthier

    that's the ticket

    All of HFB has it down that for over a year I have called using Krav as a pivot.
    At least to try it.

    So yes, your attempt to engage in revisionist history and misrepresent things and say water isn't wet is a disgrace and an epic fail.

    As to Nieves, there was zero excuse for club to not try it. Zero.
    I stand by what I have said.

    The sum total of Gauthier's offensive game, so far, is going wide on the D and crashing the net, an admirable attempt, that usually leads to nothing. If he can develop anything else at all, maybe something will come of him.

    I'm not saying to totally give up on him, but it's starting to look like he might be better off trying to carve out a career as a checking forward.

    What's his status as far as does the team have to protect from Seattle, because I'd sacrifice him if that's an option?

    If the Rangers won the Cup this year, those same people would still hate Quinn.

    Yes, nothing worse than winning to further ruin our prospects ‘development’

    When it doesn't take 3 years for a top pick to even sniff the potential we saw coming in.

    I think Kravtsov benefited a lot from playing in Russia, whereas our kids had the long lay off. Just watching him the other night you can see he’s more mature then he was when he left to go back the 1st time

    I had basically nothing to do tonight, so I went on the Isles boards and read most of their GDT.

    LOTS and LOTS of coping.

    They actually think we regret passing on Dobson.
    And they think Dobson and Wahlstrom are better than Miller and Kravtsov LMFAO

    How someone can know anything about Kravtsov at this point is mind boggling.

    Edit: And it's not like Wahlstrom has done anything before this season.

    Yup. He was 1000% more comfortable playing on Russia too, compared to riding the bus in the A, but he was here long enough to get a taste of hard nosed North American hockey so he knew what he needed to improve on. Really, the best of both worlds.

    Last year people were getting worried he was another Lias Andersson with maturity issues glad to see it looks like he's proved us wrong.

    Haha, reading the Islanders board apparently we give up goals by the boatload even though going into today we were 11th in the league in goals against and have gotten mostly terrible goaltending from our backups and our starter has been out like a quarter of the season.

    Wahlstrom does have 16 points in 32 games.

    I don’t care if he has 30 points. Kravtsov is better.

    Moronic takes all over, albeit a couple fans are reasonable.

    So, how do you distinguish between a player who disappoints in the NHL and a player who disappoints because of his coach?

    I think the 2nd choice doesn't exist.

    Finally caught the game. My takeaways.

    - Miller was a monster. Anyone who has been overly negative about him this year is an idiot who yells at player to "shoot" during the PP at the garden.
    - Glad Kakko is finally starting to get rewarded for his work. Next year is going to be huge for him.
    - Panarin is the kind of guy who would come up with the equation for Time Travel but also try to argue that 2+2= Donkey Balls
    - Kreider is ass. Demote this mother f***er and get him off of my team. Staal/Girardi pt 2. Way worse than Trouba. I can tolerate the lack of goal scoring, I cannot tolerate the lack of effort.
    - NYI are really a one trick pony. The second Barzal gets shut down in the post season, they're f***ed. The lack of talent on that team was really evident in this one. Trotz can really only do so much. If they draw Boston or Washington in the first round they're dead. Pittsburgh with out home ice and Id bet against them as well.
    -I really hope this was a showcase game for Geo.

    You've stated some very interesting ideas. Some of which are already "IMHO" obvious. Nonetheless.
    Blackie and Rooney seem like they would be part of a package "if anything" to really bump up any return. My opinion.
    "Giving them away" for any 2,3 or 4 rounders seems stupid in regard to their contracts. Could see BLACKWELL as a Bruin, but wonder if they would give a 2nd and that "should be" the price and would hate to see that. He is underrated and all he does is score and bust his ass. We will see. Maybe with Buch? If indeed that really has to happen at some point. Uggh.
    Eichel......100% on board with you. HUGE mistake, unless....
    Barron......by all means
    Wall? I dunno, think they're sitting on him until AFTER Seattle expansion to see how that shakes out. They'll expose Kinkaid (guessing that is why he is here) but, not thinking they will chance allowing Wall a few games, as they ARE trying to make PO's, and I guess Georgiev gives them that best chance as backup.
    You are alright in my book Bern. Jokem' if they can't take a f.ck.

    And with the flat cap I think players will have to take less, even. I also don’t expect long-term deals, so that’s a trade off. Not to mention most other teams probably in a relatively worse spot, financially.
    If the players are willing to bend a bit, I think it’s safe to say we can afford at least most of our FAs.
