Some Caps fans want to run Kuznetsov out of town.
Monahan swings wildly back and forth between whipping boy and team hero.
Jankowski is heading up my personal **** list. For a lot of fans it'll be Brodie or Hanifin.
Nah it'll be Ceci, got to take over for Zaitsev.
Justin Faulk, of course
He will play top minutes against top players while on a Senators team that will have trouble scoring. It'll be the same scenario as with Ceci. A guy who could be a 4-5 on the right team being deployed as a #1 or #2 shutdown type.
Anderson will probably be an honorable mention.
That's factually incorrect.
It's only people on HFSens who don't like Eugene Melnyk.
I talk with a lot of real Sens fans in real life. Thousands of them. They pay money to go to games unlike those on HFSens. These people are thrilled about the rebuild and think Melnyk did nothing wrong.
Seabrook will be the Blackhawks whipping boy. He was a Warrior for them for years, but there's a group of selfish fans who only care about his salary. They want him to fake an injury and go on LTIR, retire or accept a trade to a team like Ottawa.
Chicago has been his home for over a decade, he was one of the first big pieces of the championship group and still enjoys hockey.
Ignore the salary and respect the player. He still adds more value than a number of other large contracts.
One of Bailey, Beau, or Leddy. Maybe all 3?
Whoever the backup is if they fail
For the Hawks it'll always be Seabrook followed by alittle Gustafsson (mostly in the defensive zone) and Shaw (stupid penalties) mixed in since it's getting boring to rip Seabrook.
Maatta (and possibly Nylander if he makes the team) might be a dark horse.
In Winnipeg, it will be Neal Pionk. People will constantly be comparing him with Trouba. He will be the new Ray Neufeld.
No one from the Oilers. Everyone is going to play good this season.
To start the year the Flames have a few options. If Tkachuk holds out, it's him. If Talbot struggles at all, it's going to be him. On the other hand, if the team is good then Monahan will get ignored, while if we're bad and our top line struggles then he is the big issue and he should fight someone, like, at least once to show he knows what fists are.
Safe bets for the big whipping boys: Brodie on literally any goal he's on the ice for. Lucic if he doesn't lay a big hit in the first 10 games, or if Neal does anything. Jankowski unless he actually does something at 5 on 5.
Then Bennett is a big maybe cause like, some people in the fan base love him, some hate him. Who knows.
Jesus Christ how many times do I have to say this... Skjei is a ****ing beast. Don’t worry about it.
Not wildly. Monahan will start the year off hot and be a hero. Come January injury rumors will come around and by March everyone will want to trade him.
For Calgary it is going to be Lucic. Maybe Rittich if he faulters.
Stepan, maybe Keller
oof I entirely forgot Lucic was on the team. Was hoping it was a bad dream.
Really? Thought he was a stud.
Neal easily, I hope people haven't had their hopes up about him.
Monahan and Gaudreau are sofffft
If he is still a Penguin this upcoming season, Jack Johnson. And that will be for a reason.
