  1. 2018 Off-Season Trades / Signings / News

    Barry Trotz has resigned as the coach of the Caps. He'd be a great add if we could get rid of Blash!
  2. Rumors Thread

    I'd do that in a New York minute.

    I'm cautiously optimistic about this draft. I hope we go D with size at 6, but I have a feeling Michigan > "need for size" and we draft Hughes. That's a pick I feel would be a huge risk and likely a huge mistake.
  4. Dougie Hamilton

    The Vegas 1st, our 3rd and Nyquist or AA? I'd do it...
  5. Boqvist

    I see you're back to the usual shtick... what we need is to draft the better player and all of the available data suggest's it's not Hughes. Picking him would strongly imply a Michigan bias.
  6. Boqvist

    This is how I feel about Hughes... remove "health" and replace with "Michigan"
  7. Boqvist

    I think Bouchard projects better defensively than Shattenkirk. Also I don't think he's as soft as puppy poo like Shatty.

    In the rankings I'm following Huges is ranked lower than, Dahlin, Boqvist, Dobson and Bouchard in that order... the only way we draft him IMHO is if they pull the ole he's from Michigan so we'll draft him trick... which is a fireable offence. Hate this ^^ LOVE THIS ^^^^

    Hahaha I noticed that too... a real well F look.
  10. Official 2018 NHL Amateur Entry Draft Discussion Thread

    Dobson is ranked ahead of Bouchard... just noticed this... hmmmmm
  11. Official 2018 NHL Amateur Entry Draft Discussion Thread

    I hope not... I'd highly prefer some size along with the skill... Bouchard and Dobson for me.

    Maybe, just maybe our silver lining would be Carolina winning the lottery... that might just put Hanafin or Falk in play. If we could trade AA + a 1st or 2nd for either guy and draft Bouchard or Dobson (my preferences on D) that would make our D better next year and much much better within 2 years.
  13. Our draft position

    We need to be careful... throwing kid after kid into the NHL to either sink or swim is the Edmonton model. We do need character vets around to shield and teach these younger players. That said we also need to be more willing to push aside a veteran when it's clear he's no longer needed in that role. I think Daley is a character player and was a good signing. ***IF*** they resign Green it needs to be 4 million and 1 year max with no trade restrictions and that's if he has a clean bill of health.

    Maybe the better question is, if we aren't in a position to draft A. Svechnikov... would the team that does draft him have interest in E. Svechnikov? If so, what could we get for him? A prospect and their 2018 2nd rounder? A 2019 1st?
  15. Wow, we're in for a 2-4+ seasons of this unless we can get that D-Core and Goaltending addressed.
