  1. Our design team has always fallen short on jerseys. Some are good and some are just awful. To each their own, but the originals are still the best. This is the worst jersey in all sports. It has to be. It’s disappointing because it was a chance to do something great. But we did kind of beat the league on this already. We had the teal and black jerseys with the old logo a couple seasons ago. So you’re welcome Adias for the idea and this is how you thank us. some teams nailed this. Some will hate them but some really like it. I think Vegas jersey is BADA55. I like it a lot. I like Calgary’s and Florida’s. Lots of good ones. Idk what happen with Detroit. Where did the grey come from and why a strip like that lol. Arizona is odd but cool. To the comment above about kings using lakers colors, it’s not lakers colors. King’s used to be gold and purple.
  2. Ottawa is putting together a decent little team. Good chance some of those first rounders make the team too. Example of to actually ‘retool’ on the fly. Looking at you GMBM.
  3. Then he should have targeted Pietrangelo instead of shattenkirk. And make a play for Hall. He wants to come out of a rebuild without actually rebuilding, then he has to buy it! Spend the money we have. I don’t understand how ownership can build big entertainment districts and upgrade the rink and pay their employees during the pandemic (not complaining about any of this cause it’s awesome) but not spend up to the cap where it matters most. You win games people come the games and spend money and buy jerseys and you make the playoffs and all the revenue that comes with it. By being 10 mil cheap on the budget/cap probably cost more that that in revenue loss. You can not target B level players and expect to get an A.
  4. He has been Nails for us but crap for anyone else. Just like playing here apparently.
  5. For a fifth rounder It doesnt make a ton if since other than to shed some salary. I think this means Manson is going no where. Why trade both big RD....Toronto is supposedly actively trying to move Nylander. Mason seemed to be the key piece in those rumors. But with Gudbranson on the move, I think that rumor dies. I really like Gudbranson. I think he played well with Fowler.

    Seattle Kraken!

    The S was meant to pay homage to the Seattle Metropolitans. I also like it a lot. Great marketability and will make for a good pregame show.
  8. Well this specific thread has been about that for awhile now moose. It’s about the covid as it affects the league and although some of it has not been directly related to hockey the issue in itself is the reason why there is no hockey thus it is related. also from I recall reading this isn’t so much politics as it is just world news.
  9. Regarding the post about how the US has so many cases and deaths with such a great health care system not making sense. Keep in mind that people with diabetes are very affected by the complications. The US (I believe) is the world leader of obesity which goes one in hand with type 2 diabetes at least. There may be a correlation with that.
  10. Or they just bump everyone up one spot. Bottom teams get the top picks. How it should be.

    I’m hoping, that because of their depth at center they will pass on Byfield (or trade down a spot) and we trade up with Ottawa’s third and we can get him...wishful thinking, but they would still have 5 and 5 plus probably our what is it 20 sumthing and a prospect? I’m down we need that a Getzlaf replacement. Dudes 6-4 at 18. Could get bigger. And he was adjust a little behind Lafreniere in points.
  12. If that’s true, that is quite the coincidence, or is it. Perhaps Disney has this in mind when creating the team/mascot.
  13. The thing about Murray and possibly partially ownership, we always seems to go cheap at the deadline. Where we could have had a great player that could have easily put us over the top, but do to budgetary reasons or an unwillingness to pay a price we always settle for second or third rate players. As well as the case when we almost got Kessler at the deadline but didn’t get him until the draft. Had we got him at the deadline, we could have won that year. Why? Because of some unknown aspect of the trade that was an ‘overpayment’ in the eye of Murray. How has the team been since? Dwindling. We missed that window for what, an extra third? And mid tier prospect. Not well played...in hindsight. Sometimes you have to pay to play. I understand not selling the future, but what good is the future if we have to settle for second best. It doesn’t seem to have paid off has it, only perhaps prolonged the inevitable.
  14. Right. And in the comments by GMBSBM he said we were too young, especially with the injuries. We wanted a ‘youth movement’. My money is on him picking up more veterans this summer to plug the gaps. Maybe even AHL veterans to give us options for call ups. Don’t tip the scale sort of thing. And he has made comments that suggest he is going to try and make a splash with defense either via trade or FA. But we have been let down by such promises before.
  15. I think he talking about coaches too. Specifically assistants running special units. Sounds like they were being to soft with the kids “letting them get away with murder”. I too want to hear audio. What’s his tone. A lot of this is repeated over the years, but I’m picking up on more anger. He is cussing in the interview. Not professional imo but shows he has had enough.
