    My gut says it'll be James Reimer. Options are abound so let's see.
  2. Like Cross said - we didn't miss out on Andersen. The Leafs provided the Ducks an opportunity to ship him out of both the division and conference. All things being equal, why would Anaheim trade Andersen within the division when they don't have to?
  3. The market has been set for rental dmen with the Shultz trade. I don't see why we can't trade Russell for a 1st ++. I'd target Boston, who has rumoured to be in the Russell sweepstakes and also had three straight first round picks last season. If any team is willing to part with its 1st for 2016 it would likely be the Bruins.
  4. This is precisely the trap that Darryl Sutter got caught in. Started trading the farm for older players. Now granted, Stamkos is 25, I don't think he's going to come in here and turn us into a contender. In fact, he could seriously hamstring us because he is a pending UFA. He could flip the finger at us and walk away and then Tampa has Sam Bennett. We already trade Gilmour for Lehman. Stamkos isn't Lehman but the result could be similar. If he signs, for how much? 12 million a year? Why can't we just be patient and allow things to develop? There seems to be in a mentality as if our window of opportunity is closing and we need to act now to capitalize. Sean Monahan and Johnny Gaudreau are not pushing 30. Let's stop pretending as if they are. If you're window of opportunity is indeed closing, I can see trading picks and prospects for a Stanley Cup push. BTW, rarely does this tactic work. In any event, that's not the case here.
  5. I got no problem with any of Treliving's singings. In fact, bringing in veterans creates good competition with the young guys since they are fighting for jobs. What I do have a problem with is when management lets their egos rule and refuse to sit a guy or send a guy down to the minors in favour of a younger player who has shown that he can do a better job. I haven't seen that from BT. As far as I'm concerned he can sign whoever he wants as long as the right decisions are made when it comes to icing the lineup.
  6. Moving forward, that quite simply is not good enough. In my mind guys like Russell, Wideman, Engelland, Schlemko are solid 5-6 guys. We have a glaring hole at 3-4. While I love these guys to pieces, the reason we had to block so many shots is because we just can't hack it possession wise. Blocking a shot should be a last resort, but that wasn't the case with us this year. How we fill that 3-4 slot in is anyone's guess but as long as we have guys like Russell and Wideman patrolling the blue line in our 3-4 spot, we're not making it to the next level.
  7. Anybody wanna tell me why David Schlemko was penalized against Winnipeg for a follow through?
  8. Feaster's put a lot of pressure on himself by talking about best players in drafts and best even strength players in the league. If he delivers, good on him. If he fails, and the odds are stacked heavily against him, then he's going to look like a fat buffoon and will officially make this team the laughing stock of the NHL.

  9. 14-2. Don't think we've seen a squash job like this in the playoffs since the Oilers in the 80s. And given the recent "parity" in the league, it makes the Kings run that much more impressive.

  10. The Canuck message board has crashed

  11. I LOVE the picture on the website titled "Coaching Change". Look at Sutter and Lowry strategizing with Craig Hartsburg in the back seemingly conspiring against them, lol. Look at those eyes.

  12. Is tomorrow's game seriously not on TV?

      Oiler Website says SNet-W. That is identical feed and SNET-W here.

      As well the recent contract we signed meant all regular season games would be covered.

      Just means we have to put up with the only crew worse than Kerr-Simmer-Millions

  13. Kipper's such a nice guy. Wants to give Baertschi the GWG.

  14. Anybody else notice the sore loser who didn't win the Dodge Ram challenge? Just walks off the ice without congratulating the kid who won. Way to show some class ya p r | ( #!!

      Personally I'd still be pumped if I lost that truck but won a year of free groceries as consolation

      I didn't see the loser shoot. Was his shot THAT bad? The guy who won missed the net by 5 meters.

    4. tachaudh


      yeah the loser was wide by about 8 or 9.
