    Thanks for the info! So the Raymond and Berggren games are still going ahead are they?

    Does anyone know why random SHL games have been and are continuing to be postponed? Is it due to Covid? The Rogle (Seider) vs Lulea game is postponed today...

    Yeah, I'm hoping he develops into a very good 2C. We shall see. He's likely still 3-5 years away. Yeah, pretty much this. Also, Albert Johansson > Anton Johanneson.

    Yeah, I was stoked about the Niederbach pick as well, but I think 1C may be a little out of reach for him. Maybe, but keep in mind, the J20 is considered a lower quality league than the CHL. 2 points per game is pretty f***ing impressive, but until he gets a shot, sticks, and produces in the SHL, I'd probably pump the breaks on 1C potential for now. Yeah, I mentioned this as a potential 2nd line in a few years. We could have a super deep top 9 pretty soon, which is pretty exciting.

    I guess for the same reason helmets weren't mandatory back in the 60's and early 70's, and visors weren't mandatory back in the 90's and early 2000's... Men are too cool to wear the same protection they did as boys... Neck guards have been mandatory in minor hockey for as long as I can remember (30 years), but once you get to a certain age, when the speed and pace of play picks up, you don't have to wear them anymore. Makes a ton of sense...

    I didn't see much of the Seider game, but did catch the clip of him nearly getting clipped... Close call for sure. I think it's only a matter of time before some sort of neck protection is made mandatory, the same way they did with visors a few years back.

    2020 Offseason

    I wasn't thinking anyone money actually. I wasn't even thinking about a particular number. I was just thinking that Mantha, being a significantly more valuable player than Bertuzzi, should and likely will get paid significantly more money and term.

    I would say that an extra $1.5M per and an extra two years is "significantly more" in "Covid land times" though... Also, if Mantha signs a contract worth $5M, that is an absolute steal, and the longer the term, the better.

    Nothing. Mantha should and likely will get significantly more money and term than Bertuzzi. He's a much more important player to the future of this team. Mantha is a legitimate top line winger, that can drive offense. Bertuzzi is a middle six complimentary winger, that needs help to produce offense.

    1 year. RFA again next offseason.

    Or Raymond. I'll probably be watching the Berggren vs Veleno game, but flicking back and forth between the three games. I really wish they would spread the times out a little...

    Yeah, and I'm perfectly okay with taking a more cautious approach in these negotiations. It'll be interesting to see what Mantha eventually ends up signing for as well.
