    I participated, on the pro side of the “Does GMJR need to go?” on the Pens board. It was after the Kessel trade. I didn’t like the way he badmouthed players on the way out. In this case blaming Kessel for locker room troubles last year. And of course the signing of Jack Johnson the year before. The signing of Tanev looked like a similar, but much less egregious mistake. Well, it turns out that Tanev has been great and some other moves HOFGMJR made were excellent—getting Kahun, Marino, Sprong for Pettersson, keeping Jarry. Signing Jack Johnson is still a mind bottling self shot in the foot, but otherwise the Pens look great and a large part of that is GMJR.

    I was fairly certain that James Neal would have single digit goals this season. I guess I'll take the double digit minus as ketchup for my crow. And a 3rd round pick as seasoning.

    The 25g, 60 point Dumba season prediction hasn't exactly worked out.

    I thought Bennett could at least rebound and have a decent year.

    Nope, I have officially given up on him. I've gone into the past 3 seasons saying, "this is his year" and he not only comes out worse every year, but he has 6 points this year. I still don't want him traded just for the sake of trading him, but I don't understand how you can have so much potential and have nothing to show for it other than some good playoff games.

    James Neal. I couldn't believe how many goals he scored in October. Was not expecting that and ate a lot of crow then. Thank gawd he's reverted back to expectations as he totally blew his load in that first month and is pretty well useless most nights since then and I'm back to dining on steak.

    I thought signing Talbot was a bad move by the Flames. He's surprised me this season. I still worry a bit when he's in net but no way to even being close to the worry I would be experiencing if Smith was still playing for the Flames.

    you forgot Gusev....and Hall missing 2/3rds of the season last year

    maybe they're underrating how good the rest of the division is but you're underrating the sheer amount of talent New Jersey added

    Depth issues when they are leading the league in goals and have one of the best bottom 6's?

    My big ones

    - Hughes is better than Makar

    - Carolina will be favourites to win the cup (not saying they are bad by any stretch, just I expected them to be closer to a division leader)

    - The Atlantic will be the best division by a wide margin, no team will really be able to pull away in that division even though Buffalo, Detroit, and Ottawa will be bottom feeders

    - Stars will suck this year

    I said the Oilers had ZERO chance of making the playoffs.

    If their goaltending holds up they have a shot.

    I thought Mark Borowiecki didn't belong in the NHL. He's been pretty good.

    I thought Nashville would be a Stanley Cup favorite. They're not

    I thought Jesperi Kotkaniemi would take a big step forward. He's regressed.

    I thought Gerard Gallant had great job security. He didn't.
