  1. If Draper is the next GM, I don't think I mind it

    MLB- every (successful) front office is hiring analytical, computer geeks NBA- same as MLB NFL- the greatest football mind of all time is the GM of the Patriots, everyone else is so much below them (even though they did lose the SB because of a funky playcall) NHL- former players, former players, former players
  2. If Draper is the next GM, I don't think I mind it

    I just don't understand why NHL teams hire former players as GM's.
  3. Mrazek traded to Philly for Conditional 3rd and 4th Picks

    You are legitimately an ass, though.
  4. My vote goes to, of course, the 2x defending champs
  5. Made the thread twice by accident. Someone delete pls
  6. 2/6 GDT Bruins at Red Wings 7:30 PM EST

    No shame losing to the B's. The bruins are the best team in the NHL when healthy. Better than Tampa.
  7. Standings, the good the bad and the ugly

    The Wings are better than last year, not by much, but they're right where they belong.

    If he's returning to the NHL it'll only be for a contender like Washington.
  9. 10/13 - Red Wings at Golden Knights - 10:30 PM EST

    Red Wings with a fluky start to begin the year again. Should be fun when they don't get a top draft choice
  10. Tatar, Athanasiou, and XO's new deals

    I'm guessing Euro_Twins thinks 2008 Nick Lidstrom is worth more than 2008 Pavel Datsyuk too. them forwardz are so a dime a dozen, my defensemenz are the keepers! Even though, of course, Pavel Datsyuk at his peak was worth more to the team than a Nick Lidstrom past his prime.
  11. Tatar, Athanasiou, and XO's new deals

    Andrei Burakovsy had 44.84 points / 82 games this year. Andrei Burakovsy is actually extremely good and should be getting more money than TJ Oshie. The points don't show it. Vincent Trochek- 54 points in 82 games. His on-ice impact was massive relative to the rest of the team. Again, IMO, a better player than TJ Oshie. The elementary stats don't show it, of course. I'm not saying Tatar is a superstar elite player, but he's the best player on this team. He should be getting the most money. He's better than Mantha.
  12. Tatar, Athanasiou, and XO's new deals

    Tomas Tatar- career +13.9% 5v5 corsi RELATIVE TO THE TEAM. 13.9%!!!!! Pavel Datsyuk's career high was 16.6. NYQUIST is 2.4%!!! When he's on the ice, the Red Wings are far better than when he's off the ice. It doesn't matter when Dekeyser's value to the team is far lower than that of Tatar's, regardless of position. I would not pay Carey Price more than Nicklas Backstrom. Keep using the 45 points argument. Use +/- too while you're at it.
  13. Tatar, Athanasiou, and XO's new deals

    I love these people ITT who think they can use unadjusted points to determine a player's value. Tomas Tatar is a far better puck possession player than Nyquist. There is no way he should be getting 1m less than DEKEYSER. I hope Tatar leaves and lights it up for another team to shove it in Ken Holland's face.
  14. Non Stanley Cup Seasons that were the most shocking

    Honestly, 2012 for me. They absolutely obliterated teams all year long in puck possession and Jimmy Howard was at his peak. They lost in 5 to a s***ty team. That's hockey for you sometimes. I was never shocked in any of the Legace/Dave Lewis years
  15. July 1, 2017 UFA DAY!

    What the f*** are the Leafs thinking?
