    Thought Eric Tangradi would turn into a Top 6 PFW. I’ll never forget opening night in 2010 and the 2nd line was Tangradi-Comrie-Malkin :facepalm: Thanks Daaaaaaannnnnnnn. Or how could I forget about Luca Caputi or Beau Bennett lmao.

    I remember the summer the Flames signed Bouw and I thought they were going to be Cup favorites in the west with a backend of Phaneuf, Regher, and Bouwmeester. Boy was I wrong lol.

    He was hilarious. One of the few players I've seen who's peek was their rookie year and regressed as a hockey player the more he played in the NHL.
    I remember he had a pretty good lockout shortened rookie season. I even thought his passing was under rated.

    Every year he came back worse haha

    Last one I can recall clearly was for the entire 2015-2016 draft year including through the WJC where they both dominated I thought Puljujarvi would go higher than Laine and would be by far the better NHL player. Despite the recent struggles by Laine I'd still say I was pretty far off on that one.

    Michael Dal Colle would be the consensus number 1 pick 5 years from his draft class.
    Same draft class as Draisaitl, Pastrnak, Point...

    I'm not sure if that is even a negative thing. Season is just an (unnecessary long) grind to get to the games that matter.

    well of course it matters, you gotta make it to the show first, and Montreal did a good job of almost blowing it after a hot start. Lucky for them Vancouver and Calgary forgot how to play hockey.
