  1. seems many are waiting to see if the US falls back into a revolutionary war in the next month or so. hard (for me, at least) to focus on hockey. glad you guys have found the focus, though.
  2. i think there's now some evidence of continuing abuse after the sentence in 2016, perhaps even as recent as the past couple of years. i think once the Coyotes found out about that, they didn't have many options left. as you say, Armstrong probably gets past this without too much of a blemish, AND the rest of the league gets to see what's risked when a team gets caught prospect tampering and can't scout the draft with their A team. we'll see what Miller's college does. i think they at least have to have him on some kind of private probation related to his conduct... basically a zero tolerance probation. all that said, like others noted, the circumstances of this don't tend to turn guys like Miller (seems to be) into upstanding citizens. it's one thing to be told before the draft that you're undraftable because of your past and lack of progress towards redemption. it's completely another to have your selection yanked because your past rears its ugly head... the second circumstances are way too susceptible to blaming the victim for speaking up. i think Miller's college better make him a project and work hard at healing his character faults. better for everyone if he can be trained to get past his own hangups.
  3. i haven't found a true record - was Mitchell 14 at the time of the sentencing, or was his victim 14? i seem to remember from reading through that Mitchell is years older than Isaiah, but i could be wrong.
  4. did you see it live, or the edited version on youtube?
  5. if that's at all true, then it's probably from the Duck's side, not his. and not because of some issue, just minimizing salary.
  6. Just going to repost this periodically because it gets lost in the shuffle of opinions too often.
  7. and if we played him too much, wouldn't he be eligible for the ED?
  8. meh. until i see him paired with Cam, i prefer Gbud.
  9. yes, and no, you're all kinds of wrong.
  10. he definitely played worse, the question was whether it was motivation related or age/eyesight(injury) related. it seemed motivation related, but you never know.
  11. this is just a rehashed version of players being commodities, which i just don't think is accurate. Cam clearly needs a certain type of player for us to get the most value out of him, and it looks like GBud gave us a multiplier gain and not just an incremental not-as-bad-as-Bieksa minor offset. especially considering how long its taken to find that magic, it's a lot to throw away when the half season next year is going to be pretty cheap in terms of salary (though coupled with abysmal income, i would guess).
  12. yeah, this sucks. i liked him, i liked his play, i liked how the team played with him on it, and i liked what he did for Cam when he was on the ice. more than that, i fear whatever we get in the room he's opened up won't make us more of a solid team on which to train up the youngers. this move feel erratic, and not at a good time. i'm having visions of a bunch of rookies swarming over the ice each shift and not getting anything good done while another team works a solid play and scores.... again, and again. i should say it - if they're going to shift Gbud, does this mean they're going to shift Cam too? with the lack of pairing support the team has shown for Cam over the past 5+ years, if i was Cam right now, i'd be piddleed. Vats doesn't make much sense unless there's a ton of retained salary. ah, well, the simplest answer is that Gbud is the easiest way to shift $4M right now, so he and out D-lines took the hit. i guess now we see what horror show BM has committed us to. i dearly hope it isn't for fraking Nylander. i do NOT have a good feeling about that kid, not on our team as it stands right now.
  13. Kings got some guy named Alex Laferriere - did they misread the last name? this guy looks interesting: https://www.capfriendly.com/players/carter-savoie as do these: https://www.capfriendly.com/players/bear-hughes https://www.capfriendly.com/players/nils-aman https://www.capfriendly.com/players/connor-mcclennon https://www.capfriendly.com/players/gunnarwolfe-fontaine - (aw, we missed out on almost the best named draft pick) https://www.capfriendly.com/players/oskar-magnusson - this guy looks good, no? this guy is ridiculously tall, and weighs nothing: https://www.capfriendly.com/players/louis-crevier i think these guys dropped way down: https://www.capfriendly.com/players/axel-rindell
  14. wow, so Tampa Bay traded up to take a shot with Jack Finley - 6'6" CENTER at 213lbs from the WHL. and then, right after, Boston took a 6'4" 195lb D. 6'6" is rather tall. also - is it me, or is Toronto super, super passive this draft. like, almost criminally passive. they must think they have plenty of prospects, because they've passed on a few that would shore up their abysmal defense before their top lines retire. DAEMON HUNT is a pretty wild name. JEAN-LUC FOUDY just feels like he might be a big player down the road.
  15. is there video of the Ozzy Wiesblatt pick with the sign language?
  16. i liked the capfriendly draft page yesterday. the NHL one sucks. ah, i think i found the right page to see today's picks.
  17. i'm just praying for not another NR.
  18. Brendan Brisson would have been interesting for us. not in place of our current picks, just in general.
  19. i am unable to add more reactions today, so just assume i'm liking and laughing and crying at things.
