    1. Whoever plays with Toews and Kane and doesn't produce.

    2. Whoever plays with Strome and DeBrincat and doesn't produce.

    Drouin. Outside chance for Chiarot because Julien loves his hard hitting no puck skill dmen and is most likely going to overplay him.

    Hyman will be in Toronto while Barrie gets a pass for being a disaster in his own zone along with Ceci lmao.

    I'm not sure there's anyone left to go for after last year. Considering there are probably exactly zero expectations, across the board, by any realistic Kings fan, involving anything about this season, is it even worth getting upset with anyone? Forbort is easy, because of where he was drafted, and he has no talent, but he's just a bad player on a bad team. Kopitar is easy too, mostly because of the contract the organization gave him, which isn't his fault, but again, without the expectations of team success, whatever the top guys do doesn't really matter with the Cup success they've had.

    The Kings are just killing time for the next few years, waiting for the old contracts to finally end, while the youth with potential has time to develop. Vegas beat the will to compete out of the Kings in the 2018 playoffs, since they saw they were not able to compete on a current NHL playoff level. Last year was the straw that broke the camel's back, as it was the culmination of the decline from the previous 4 year stretch. No more whipping boys for a while.

    With Leafs fans every player will get a turn. Only safe ones are maybe Rielly and Tavares

    Going by other guys who’ve played that position in Toronto, I can see this. Although, he doesn’t have the name brand like Murphy or McCabe.

    Interesting and refreshing.

    Posters on this site are NOT a microcosm of hockey fans. I suspect/expect I might be attacked for this but fans here are not exactly hockey geniuses, most of them can't even skate.

    It’ll be Jake Allen when he plays. It’ll be Jake Allen even in games where he doesn’t play because his contract kept the Blues from signing whoever the one guy was that would have made the difference that particular night.

    Flames, TJ Brodie for sure.
    Matty Tkachuk if he doesn't sign into the season.
    Lucic because he is what he is.

    Whoever we sign to be our depth guy with Valimaki's injury, will probably take some on the chin.

    Well that's not true either. My boss is from Ottawa and is a Sens fan but he would love to see Melnyk sent to the moon...or at least anywhere away from the team.

    The Refs for Florida. The amount of whinging is unbearable sometimes.

    Either Niskanen or Braun for the Flyers. Probably Braun if I had to pick one.

    Casey Mittelstadt and Tage Thompson if they continue to suck ass but are kept in the lineup due to lack of depth and to make it look like the ROR trade was somehow justified just by them being on the team.

    Heinen/Backes seems likely.

    One for his play. One for not being able to play and preventing them from signing a guy who could actually play

    Lucic. Rightfully so.

    Gaudreau and Monahan will have hell to pay from the fans if they don't perform consistently throughout the year and into the playoffs. Also rightfully so.
