My post was satirical. Maybe it was too hfsens in for the main board.
I think Brad Marchand is going to take some heat from the fans this year. I know a few people that have him on their sh*t list for the bad line change in Game 7.
Marner will be the whipping boy for the Leafs.
For the Preds the easy answer is Turris but the low-key, negative nancy part of me thinks Johansen is gonna get it this year.
Seabrook, even if he bounces back.
How? He already lost the job. He's a backup goalie now until he proves otherwise.
Get out of here with this stuff. Sure, I have read some hot takes on the Leafs board, but I read even more on here from "Neutral" fans about how terrible he is. It's always been the case though. I remember the Kessel and most recently Gardiner hate on here.
Behind the times. Hyman was one because he was playing with Nylander / Matthews, and he had the lowest expected goals out of anyone because they kept setting him up with tap ins he would miss.
Last year he took a step forward and was a beast on the forecheck and could put the puck in the net when given a freebee. He is a beast on the PK as well. Fans have 180'd on him and love him now.
Great rookie season followed by some long slumps during his sophomore season. Lots of pressure on him in 2019-20.
Um, for one thing he's a backup making Starter money...
I really think for the Capitals it could be Kuzy.
But it's not more than 4.35 mill. Many teams pays their starter double that.
Must be nice.
EJ, Jost, or Grubauer
That's a good thing?
It just means Allen isn't being paid superstar money. Which of course, makes sense.
Laine for Winnipeg
Nah, I think its Komarov and Varlamov
For Sens it depends....
Zaitsev is obvious as he’ll be deployed as a top pairing shutdown guy and will fail.
Secondary option is whoever of the young guns coming off ELC’s demands too much money, term, signing bonus will then be smeared and our new whipping boy.
no kidding, if they couldn't wait for Gardiner to leave for a few key screw ups
With the Canes, it'll be Faulk, not because he's bad, but rather because of unnecessary PP usage vis-a-vis Dougie when Faulk's at his best at even strength.
Not going to lie.... I really thought the first Flyer response would be Hagg
Palat has about 1 period to not suck anymore before Lightning fans whipping boy him so much you'd think we were making a Roots sequel
Hes #7 or #8 on the D depth chart now so I dont expect him to play much.
Dependent on the Marner contract and how long the saga plays out I don't see how you can choose anybody but Mitchell Marner...if he has even a slightly underwhelming season after the sht show that his contract saga has become Leafs fans will jump all over him as quickly as they can (and rightly so) mind you if he has a normal year all will be forgotten
