  1. If we can get a 1 year 1-2 million Ryan Miller I'll be happy. Good leadership for Gibby and a guy who can still play at his age
  2. I used to draft Comtois all the time in NHL 18 and he would always end up pretty good haha.
  3. Free Agency is pretty meh this year, meaning some people will get overpaid. I obviously want to resign Eaves, but who else is a good idea to go at? I really like the idea of going for a cheap one or two year Ryan Miller contract. Solid veteran guy for Gibby and a guy who can step up if we need it. Other than that I'm not sure FA wise. Sharp, Hendricks, Bonino, Kunitz. Nothing too appetizing. Sharp on a cheapish contract doesn't sound too bad.
  4. Do you think we still trade Vats? I'd prefer to hold onto him. Who's hitting FA that's of interest to us?
  5. Honestly I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. We kept our core defensive players and still have 2-3 more solid prospects on the back end.
  6. That would be more relevant if this wasn't his first full season as starting goalie and his first playoff run. He's only 23 goalies take longer, it's a demanding position.
  7. Guys, we have to be a lot more patient than we're being with Gibson. Dude is a top 10 tender at 23. Most goalies don't really break out until 25-27. I agree I think we need a better goalie coach, or just a personal one for him. The kid is athetlic as hell and just needs to work on his positioning for his heath and himself. I have full confidence in Gibson. This was his first real playoff run
  8. I honestly feel there are two possibilities. The team is playing their style in spite of Carlyle or Carlyles finally learned a bit and changed his strategies. This team is playing completely different strategically. They carry the puck in, which makes cycling easier to establish. I'll give him credit where it's due, he got us a 4th straight 100pt season and a 5th straight Pacific division title, but there are more factors like San Jose practicing how to choke for the playoffs.
  9. The match penalty ontop of a playoff game included is too much in my opinion. Ritchie got baited, you cross check a star player you pay the price. I'm fine with the team standing up for themselves when it's obvious the league won't protect us. It's ridiculous the inconsistently of Player Safety
  10. I'm fine with Perry on the 3rd, I'd just like to see Vermette and Ritchie pitch in more. I was unable to watch tonight's game, but before this Perry just makes his own chances, he'd get a lot more results if Vermette and Ritchie would do something with the great chances he dishes out or make some plays themselves
  11. It's kind of weird that Burns is unanimously the favorite for the Norris when he plays as bad as he does in the D zone. He's an offensive beast, but sometimes watching him in defensive zone he's so soft and uninterested. For a big guy he lets people power through him a good amount. Karlsson had a similar offensive season except he's better in the defensive zone and he didn't win the Norris in the past
  12. I think he should learning that, he's still very young for a goaltender. He'll learn
  13. Don't really know where to post this thought. I know we're a smaller hockey market compared to others, but it's crazy that guys like Rakell, Lindholm, Gibson, and Manson don't get more love around the league. Rakell is gonna be a 30 goal scorer after missing a month of the season training with 14 year olds in a Carlyle system Lindholm is turning into a premier shutdown defenseman with offensive upside Gibson has been one of, if not the best goalie in the league since Christmas and before his injury. Manson is good for one highlight reel monster hit a game. And is really turning into a good two way guy. League wide highlight reels leave a lot of fantastic stuff from Gibby and Manson. A lot of commentators have no clue what to say about our real star players not named Getzlaf and Perry.
  14. We actually have 1 forward slot open to someone better, which is why pretty much everyone wants us to move a defenseman for a forward. Right now it seems we're protecting Vermette
  15. He's done a good job keeping us out of ridiculous bidding wars, but then he'll sign a Stoner or Bieksa contract and waive players that suck to lose. I don't think he's a bad GM, but his boner for Carlyle cheeses me
