  2. on TSN's trade bait, AA sits at 7, Green at 35, but at 21 is "Detroit's Cap Space" We could see some big contracts on this team next week and some multiple high round picks!

    2020 Draft Thread

    Consensus says there is definitely separation between Lafreniere and the rest. There are probably 3 or 4 guys that could go first had it not been the Lafreniere draft. Byfield has been the consensus #2 for a while, and I'm not convinced there is a single person out there who would choose Byfield at #1. Only time could tell how distant the 2-4 group will be. Lafreneie is one of those players who will likely make an immediate NHL impact at 18 years old. Others may take a year or two. So while some of these players may close that gap over the years, Lafreneiere will be in the league earlier and become an impact NHL player at a younger age. A good comparison is McDavid and Eichel. For the record, I'm not saying Lafreniere will be McDavid level. But McDavid was a great NHL player immediately. He was scoring more than a point per game as an 18 year old. Eichel hit a point per game level in his fourth season, so it took him a bit of time to start to dominate at this level, as most high end players do. So while both are great players, there was a big gap early on, Eichel has certainly narrowed said gap since. Of course, there is still no doubt McDavid is in a league of his own. In the end, only time will tell.

    So I have to ask...Is there another player in this upcoming draft that comes in as a 'close 2nd' to Lafreniere, or are the picks from 2 thru 4 a very 'distant' group?

    Tampa has been suffering the same issues the early to mid-90's Wings teams did. Too much skill, not enough grit. Adding guys like Coleman will no doubt help them. They are also playing far more complete hockey this season, which is why they sucked so bad early on. The fact that they are also kind of flying under the radar this season as well will also go a long way for their upcoming playoff run. They will be like the Caps. Fail when the expectations are there, then win it all just when nobody thinks they can.

    I'd say at this point he is meeting him. There was definitely hype for him, but was always second to McDavid. Literally any other year he'd have been the #1.
  8. That would be cool. While I do feel bad for him having to move around so much, I love him as a player and it would be awesome seeing him win a cup in a place like Colorado opposed to rotting away in Montreal.

    2020 Trade Deadline Thread (aka Veleno vs Rasmussen vs Fabbri vs Zadina)

    Theres alot of talk here of him going to colorado ...price being mentioned as well and seeing how joe sakic benefitted from the roy trade i have a gut feeling a blockbuster trade involving price and tatar to colorado is coming up
  10. Kind of feel bad for Tatar. If traded, can’t be fun playing for 4 teams in what, just over 2 years now?
  11. Zadina: "I am going to fill our bench with hometown Frenchies"
  12. Bultman of the Athletic thinks AA to Dallas makes a little sense given the Nill/MacDonell connection to AA (they drafted him). They're also near the bottom of the playoff teams in offense, so AA could help. Their top prospect, Thomas Harley, is an offensive Dman stuck behind Klingberg and Haiskanen in the lineup and may be a piece to build a package around.

    Canes want Petry. Montreal will be in good shape if they can get assets for Petry and Tatar.
  14. I'd love to go after Broberg, but it would take a lot more than that to get it done...

    No chance colorado gives up newhook in that package , id definetly send them fabbri and ebrnier for a first timmins and use AA for another good return if possible

    2020 Draft Thread

    Has Eichel met, or exceeded expectations? Forgive my ignorance, but I don't recall any 'hype' around him since it was all about McDavid.

    Something around AA+Taro/Svech for Broberg+ Larger deal with Pulju AA+Taro+Svech+3rd for Broberg+Pulju It seems like it will be Kreider or Tatar going to Avs. There are some speculation that Price could be going to Colorado too.
  19. https://www.thefourthperiod.com/feb-2020/avs-looking-to-make-multiple-moves Colorado looking for a backup goalie and forward help. To Colorado: AA/Fabbri and Bernier To Detroit: Colorado 1st and Alex Newhook.

    You're right. Last year was especially disappointing. With BriseBois as GM.

    Fat lotta good it did him. I'd argue that Tampa has been the bigger disappointment since then. Tampa has elite talent at every position and can't win anything. They're like Uber-Toronto. People think Dubas built a soft team? Watch the Lightening wither against an aggressive forecheck. Detroit is supposed to suck right now. Tampa has no excuse for not winning.

    All you need to really know about Tampa right now is that their Vezina goalie was taken in some draft because Yzerman did Holland. In a dark alley. It was sexy

    Nice try.

    True. Yzerman did leave BriseBois quite an inheritance.
  26. I want "King" Henrik to get traded in order to chase a Cup, get all the way to the finals, and then completely blow it like he always does when it matters.

    Basically how I'll feel if Tampa wins the Cup as well.
