  1. Over the summer in a thread I predicted Bylsma would be the coach by Christmas.... I may have been wrong, it might be by Halloween!

    I'm not... I'm pointing out in my opinion, based on personal observation that I think Zadina is risky. He has a lot to learn... I wasn't surprised he dropped.

    He needs to locate his own zone and spend some time in it... waiting for a break out pass behind the play isn't going to cut it in the show.

    I've seen Zadina a bit in junior... I'm not uber confident his game will translate well... think Daniel Sprong in Pittsburgh.

    2008 Zetterberg vs. 2018 Crosby

    Must be the Homer in you talking... Crosby is a superstar and arguably the best player in the world. Zetterberg was never either of those things even in his prime. He was a star and a fantastic player but he ain't no Crosby.

    Dylan Larkin Signs ($6.1M x 5 yrs)

    Larkin is a 1c on a bad team a 2c on a good team. He's very Nazem Kadri like, with a slightly higher ceiling.

    Dylan Larkin Signs ($6.1M x 5 yrs)

    I'd love to see him traded for a #1D, with this contract it probably won't happen now... and that makes me sad

    Vanek Signs 1yr. $3M

    Discussion on Sportsnet alluded to Vanek wanting surety and not needing to worry about moving at the deadline.

    Vanek Signs 1yr. $3M

    He got a full no trade with the contract so he's probably not getting flipped at the deadline.

    Official 2018 Off Season *Rebuild* Thread

    That lineup would be very competitive I reckon. Playoff team for sure.

    Tyler Bertuzzi and Martin Frk Re-signed

    Fassbender is a terrible choice. Nicholas Hoult is a better choice and a fresh start for the franchise.
