  1. TSN Power Rankings

    http://www.tsn.ca/fantasy_news/rankings/nhl/ I think Chicago, Montreal and Nashville are ranked to high, while Tampa Bay should be ranked higher in my opinion. They're are ranking us at #7 which could be about right or maybe a little to high, time will tell.
  2. Bryan Murray passes away at 74

    http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/former-senators-gm-coach-bryan-murray-dead-74/ Bryan Murray succumb to his battle with cancer today. This totally sucks, he was a great hockey mind and it seemed a good person as well.
  3. Flames acquire Mike Smith

    Flames get Mike Smith in exchange for the rights to Chad Johnson, prospect Brandon Hickey and 2018 conditional third round pick. I seen this on sportsnet.ca. Hickey was a third round pick. Interesting trade, Smith is 35, but might have a few good years left in him and I expect his numbers will improve on a better team.
  4. Sabres acquire Beaulieu for pick

    Sabres get Nathan Beaulieu for a third round pick in this years draft. Seen this on sportsnet.ca. This is a steal for Buffalo, Nathan is a first round draft pick and his numbers have continued to improve in the NHL. This trade makes no sense to me from Montreal's perspective.
  5. Devils get Mirco Mueller and a 2017 fifth round pick and the sharks get a 2017 2nd round pick and 2017 fourth round pick acquired from Nashville. Seen this also on sportsnet.ca. Mueller is a former first round draft pick, he's only played 54 games for the sharks and his offensive numbers are low in the NHL and the AHL. I expect he will get more minutes in Jersey, we will have to see if he improves.
  6. Sabres acquire Beaulieu for pick

    Because Petry has a NMC they would have had to decide between protecting Beaulieu and Emelin. Tough choice, but they still got fleeced in this trade.
  7. Flames acquire Mike Smith

    It's hard to compare Elliot who played on a really good team in stlouis to Smith who played on a really bad team in Arizona. I think Smith could definitely be an improvement, if he plays like he's capable of.
  8. Drouin for Sergachyov

    Montreal wins this trade in the short term, but Tampa could easily still come out on top in the long term. Sergachyov and Drouin I think could easily turn out to be close to wash when it comes to helping their new teams. So the picks could end up being the difference of who wins this trade. If Tampa ends up keeping the 2nd round pick, they could win the trade long term.
  9. And everyone on here thought this series was over! Not so fast
  10. 2017 ECQF: Columbus Blue Jackets vs. Pittsburgh Penguins

    Jackets in 7, goaltending will be the difference.
  11. 2017 ECQF: New York Rangers vs. Canadiens de Montréal

    Subban got traded for Shea Weber. My gut says rangers in six.
  12. NHL will not participate in 2018 Winter Olympics

    Ovechkin has said if the NHL skipped the Olympics that he would go anyway. I think he was referring to the games in Russia, but it will be interesting to see if he and some other players from the NHL decide to go.
  13. 2/28 GDT - Red Wings 3, @ Vancouver Canucks 2 (OT)

    Yeah it was a fun night!
  14. 2/28 GDT - Red Wings 3, @ Vancouver Canucks 2 (OT)

    Went to my first live Wings game tonight! It was a pretty good game considering both teams are pretty much out of the playoff race.
  15. 1/24 GDT - Red Wings at Bruins - 7:00 PM EST

    Helm, Abby and Dekeyser to start ot?! Really and where was Mantha, hurt?
  16. Jurco - Wants to move on ?

    Eaves can actually score, 17 goals in 47 games this season, which works out to around 25-30 goals in a full season. Jurco has 15 goals in 154 NHL games which works out to 7.5 goals during a full season. Of course Jurco is a lot younger but he wasn't even a big scorer in junior 68 points in 48 games was his best season. I think you are greatly overestimating his ability, chances are he never plays above the third line on any team.
  17. Jurco - Wants to move on ?

    Sure anyone could, but why put a guy with limited talent on your first line?
  18. Jurco - Wants to move on ?

    Jurco doesn't have the talent to play on any top line in the NHL. He can't even get a regular spot on our fourth line.
  19. 1/24 GDT - Red Wings at Bruins - 7:00 PM EST

    Is it just me or does AA fall down a lot?! I like the kid but common stay on your feet!
  20. World Junior Tournament

    I watched part of three games of the first day of the tournament. Finland doesn't have the talent level they had the last tournament. The US is hard to tell as the played an inferior Latvia team. Canada looks strong, although goaltending could be their Achilles heal again this year. Sweden and Russia are the other medal contenders.
  21. The MANtha watch.....

    Datsyuk left for two reasons that I can tell. Number one to be close to his daughter. Number two Detroit becoming less competitive over the last 4 years. To ensenuate that he left because Holland wouldn't promote Mantha seems kinda far fetched. I think Datsyuk understands that Detroit likes to overripen their prospects.
  22. The MANtha watch.....

    I thought this thread was about Mantha, not Datsyuk. Mantha has impressed me with his play. He makes good passes, has a good shot and seems to have a knack for going to the net.
  23. Domi KO's Kesler

    Nice shot by Domi. Interesting that the Coyotes are 11 games in and Domi has 0 goals and Duclair has 1.
  24. 11/4 GDT : Winnipeg Jets 5, at Red Wings 3

    Ericsson is a pylon. He can't skate at the NHL level. Holland should have gotten rid of him a while ago.
  25. Frk claimed by the Carolina Hurricanes

    Carolina put Frk on waivers today. So that means both him and pulk have been unable to stick with their new teams.
