  1. they are still 5th pick for the lottery. That hasn't changed, except they were a few games at #4
  2. We're around game 68 or 69 here. Players are going to be worn down by the season. lack of effort could simply be tired. If the coach isn't making a big thing about it at that practice, I would not worry about it. The effort I've seen since the trade deadline is much greater than before it. Almost all the games have been really fun to watch and the compete level has been high.
  3. Don't think they were referring to Sprong here. He wasn't with the team too much to warrant that IMO. However, in The Athletic article done on him after the statt of the season, they commented that his attitude was pretty bad the first 2-3 weeks of the season in SD. Then he finally got mostly past it, and started to play well. The guy is a head case IMO. Just full of himself and thinks he's too good to commit to paying a two way game. I'm glad they sat him for this. I'm really liking what Djoos is bringing to the team.
  4. Milano = Best Trade ever.
  5. I went to a Ducks @ Vegas game this year and saw a guy wearing a Stoner Jersey
  6. I remember it basically as Wiz for a #2 that we talked about.
  7. Not one person here even mentioned Karlsson when we made that trade. It then took 3 full years for him to breakout. The revisionist BS on this board really needs to stop.
  8. David Ayres, the Marlies ZAMBONI DRIVER, and emergency goalie from Whitby, huge Leafs fan, going in as Carolina’s emergency goalie against the Leafs in a HUGE game of playoff importance. With half the game to go!
  9. By Pierre LeBrun 1h ago 13 A first-round pick and a prospect is beyond what I thought the Anaheim Ducks could get for Ondrej Kase. Back on Feb. 3, when I felt Kase to Boston made sense as a potential deal, I had a second-round pick and a prospect as the price to pay. Of course, taking on 75 percent of David Backes’ contract is why the pick becomes a first. The Ducks will only be on the hook for about $3 million next season on Backes so it’s well worth it in my mind. Pretty good job by Ducks GM Bob Murray to weaponize his salary cap space. There’s risk on both sides here, though. The speedy Kase could go on to score 20-25 goals a year for the next 6-7 seasons in Boston and if that’s the case, the Ducks may regret this move depending on what becomes of the first-round pick. But Kase comes with enough health concerns (concussions) that one NHL team told me this week while they liked the skill set they decided not to call Anaheim because of that alone. I think Bruins GM Don Sweeney gambled wisely here. It’s a low first-round pick and he got out of cap jail on the Backes deal. And I don’t think Sweeney is done, either. He’s probably out of the Chris Kreider situation after having traded his first-round pick but he can still get in on other rentals before Monday’s 3 p.m. ET deadline. Last year he rented Marcus Johansson and made a hockey deal for Charlie Coyle. His hockey deal is now done. Even if Sweeney doesn’t make another trade, the Bruins have got as good a shot as any other team to win the Cup this year. Of course, the Bruins weren’t alone in pursuit of Kase. Two other teams that showed real interest were Calgary and Carolina, according to sources. That the Hurricanes got in there shouldn’t be a surprise given that Kase is the player they wanted from Anaheim in the failed Justin Faulk trade back in September. The Canes have liked Kase for a long time. My understanding is that they offered a second-round pick and a prospect for Kase. The Canes have two second-round picks in June, the Rangers’ and their own, so it would have been interesting to know which one they offered. A low first-round pick from Boston or the Rangers’ second-round pick (and no Backes contract) plus a prospect? But clearly Anaheim went the Boston route for a reason. That the Flames inquired makes sense, too. Calgary has been after a top-six, right-shot option. Give Flames GM Brad Treliving credit. He’s trying. He also tried on right winger Tyler Toffoli and blueliner Brenden Dillon, among others so far over the past week. Calgary can use a boost both up front and on the blue line and Treliving is taking his swings.
  10. Eakin was 22/19 last year... just sayin'
  11. make that a 4/5 for Grant The Winnipeg Jets have acquired Cody Eakin from the Vegas Golden Knights in exchange for a conditional 2021 fourth-round pick.
  12. I'm going to say do not trade Grant. He makes $700k this year. Sign him to a 2 year, $2.4 mil deal. He's the perfect 4th liner. What would be get? a 4th? maybe a 3rd? not worth it. Trade Manson and get another #1 and a #2/3.
  13. He could, but the history of players with repeated injuries like his is not that promising.
