    NEETs will inherit the earth. Dekeyser: ”I regret wearing shorts today. Everybody is laughing at my nonexistent calves." Abdelkader: ”I wonder if I can help out putting the organ in place?” Miller: ”Back in my day we thought Olympia was big” Glendening: ”I bet I can hit a nail harder than that guy with my backhand” Larkin: *Looking at worker scraping up dirt in the bottom of the pit* ”Thats right, clean it up wagie”

    Youre right. While the others are looking into the hole in the ground Larkin is staring into the horizon imagening his conquest of the city of Detroit and his future cups.

    Five years now no winni9ng team

    Because they think they can make a difference? A good coach would think so. Yzerman is wrong when he says we need to improve the team first to judge the coach. The record under Blashill is not only a testament to his players. Hiring a better/good coach is a way to improve the team. A good coach is not the icing on the cake. Its fundamental.

    2020 Draft Thread

    I realized I shouldnt have put Byfield in that group as his stats doesnt stand out in that way. But looking at both Rossi and Prefetti they have a huge number of assists this year. Numbers that in the last couple of years only have been matched by players like Morgan Frost and Jordan Kyrou in their draft+1 or +2 seasons. Rossi especially seems to benefit from his teammates also scoring big numbers too as the 67's had 4 players in the scoring top ten this season.

    2020 Draft Thread

    Read somewhere that goaltending this year in the OHL has been abysmal. When asked about the goalie trademarket in juniors this year one scout said something like: "Can you even find two goalies in the OHL worth trading for?". Something to think about when it comes to Byfield, Rossi, Perfetti etc. Their numbers might be inflated. Sorry for not being able to provide source.
  8. So we are back up. How do you guys like the news since lgw went down?
  9. Well the Pink Wings are kind of fitting right now, don’t ya think?

    2020 Draft Thread

    I think its teams nr 17 to 24 that both wants to be in the playoffs and still be eligible for the lottery when/if they get knocked out in the first round. edit; just realized I just repeated what you said. I could add that those teams can f*** off. Choose either playoffs or lottery. Thats it.

    https://www.tsn.ca/expect-the-toronto-maple-leafs-to-hunt-for-more-ltir-contracts-1.1475747 This article mentions the possibility of the leafs picking up Z’s contract. All speculation but still.. I don’t know how I would feel about that. I know Hank would not even set foot in Ontario and that this is just a paper move but it just feels wrong. Even if the Wings get a prospect in return.

    Which was my original point in response to mackel. Zadina is not sliding among his draft class. He still in that top 5-6. I agree with what you said about centers vs wingers but given these guys stats and that they are both had struggles, some due to injury(Kotkaniemis being more serious obviously), the debate should definitely be there. If anyone in that group should drop in a re-draft its Hayton. His highest ranking before the draft was at 9 (north american skaters only) and was considered a reach. Nothing this guy has done since being drafted have proved the Coyotes right in taking him that high or him being a better player than Zadina. In my humble opinion: 1. Dahlin 2. Svechnikov/Hughes 4. Tkatchuk 5. Zadina/Kotkaniemi 9999. Hayton

    Not the upgrade we need. This D needs stability and players with the ability to make plays and get the puck out of the zone. Transition is a disaster on this team.

  18. I don’t actually know who he is. I read the tweet like he has some insight in how the league is thinking.

    Now that you mention it, I have never heard anyone use intangibles when talking about/evalueating a goalie. Its probably the one position where stats mean everything due to minimal part of the play. I guess a goalie can be ”clutch” though. But you can arguably use their playoff stats to make that tangible.

    Even if Bernier played well this season, looking at his career, I wouldnt trust him to carry that over to next season and beyond. I like Bernie. He was a great goalie prospect that got beaten out of LA by Quick and then suffered the unimaginable fate of getting traded to the Leafs. Dude probably got no self confidence left.

    There is no denying we need better goaltending. Always paying for your mistakes by getting scored on really hurts the development young defenders.

    If we can buy low then I'm intrigued. No good goalie hitting UFA is willing to sign with us anyway..

    Im terrible at valuing trades myself. Just wondering if its worth it? Why give up assets in this phase of the rebuild when there som good/decent goalies (probably)hitting the market this summer? Whenever this season ends and free agency begins...
