  1. FYP. LOL at everyone bitching about bad deals here all the time and then today comes and they want to see more bad deals
  2. Today is NHL stupid day of the year. It's a good thing we rarely participate.
  3. I'll have an egg-on-my-face sammich to go please.
  4. It's possible he could be. His stats declined big time even before he got hurt.
  5. Sorry, but Caps last year won 6 their last 7, last year in the playoffs vs TB and LV when they dramatically stepped up their defensive game.
  6. 1) no, but if they pick the Avs again, they do that pick over. That happened last year when Buffalo was picked twice in a row 2) the 4-ball combos are all randomly determined and assigned to a team based on their odds. Everyone has a copy of the combos before they start the machine. Each ball is numbered from 1-14. This creates 1,001 combinations. One combo is randomly selected to not be assigned to any team. 3) 13. no
  7. NHL really frowns on tanking. #1 OTT has a 50% chance of getting #4 #4 ANA has a 60% chance of getting #5 or #6.

  9. any team that does not make the playoffs has a lottery spot.
  10. "Montour fans on the play." Yet another 2-1 he's responsible for on Phil goal #4
  11. more from my friend, MINN STH... so watching Fenton's comments after these deals, they seem to be contradicting and he doesn't have a clear plan that reflects what he's doing. after acquiring Rask he says he puts a premium on centers and then turns around and moves two guys who can play center for wingers, which he put a premium on. said yesterday they are too old and slow yet he hasn't moved anyone over the age of 27 (other than Hendricks for a 7th which was his best deal to date!) and has had two deals rumored in place for Zucker (ARI before season and CGY yesterday) who is the fastest player on the team...and again relatively young. says this is not a rebuild and these moves are for now, despite clearly moving backwards with these deals. sure Donato and especially Fiala might be great, but they clearly aren't there yet. the Staal contract meshes with not being a rebuild but if you want the definition of old and slow, Staal would be it (obviously has other redeeming qualities). another good, cheap deal but if there is another no trade on it they again aren't going to be able to move him easily when they inevitably are not in a good playoff position the next two years. worst of all he said Rask is a goal scorer with upside and the guy seems to fall in love with his opinions on players so Fiala is obviously cursed now.
  12. thanks for doing that. Yes they suck, but it's part of the landscape these days. It's not the NMC that hurt us, it's the injury to Kesler and the seriousness of it that can't be predicted.
  13. It's the market place these days. It's an issue with every team. They need to be given to get players to sign, especially the vets.
  14. Burke ripped him on NHLN for being too unpredictable and it's hard to find the right D partner for him. That's spot on.
  15. sorry if this has been posted.. cool link with up to date draft order. We have 5, 20 and 36 right now https://www.capfriendly.com/draft
  16. Nino is 5.25, Rask is 4.0. Both signed for three more years. That's not a rebuild trade. Sorry.
  17. This is from a friend on another MB that is a die-hard Minn STH and very knowledgable overall. he idea of what Fenton is doing is fine. like I said previously I personally would hold Granlund and move other pieces. but selling to get younger players that are close and getting cap back makes sense with their situation. but moving Nino, Coyle, and Granlund for Rask, Donato, and Fiala and a 4th is leaving sooooo much on the table. all three of those guys are young and have term with reasonable cap on their deals too, which makes it more egregious. and then the one true rental, Staal, he holds. unbelievable. fire this guy immediately. moving Granlund for Fiala straight up (LOL SMILEY WAS HERE) I guess the positive in not getting more draft picks is that he goes off the board with those too.
  18. Nino has flourished in CAR. Rask sucks badly. That's not a plan.
  19. He's not this bad.. Out: Nino Niederreiter Charlie Coyle Mikael Granlund In: Victor Rask Ryan Donato 5th round pick Kevin Fiala
  20. So you're bagging on Murray because he had a top NHL team for quite awhile. LOL.
  21. How many years in-a-row did we make the playoffs? The streak will be broken this year, but it's currently the second longest of any NHL team.
