Yeah if EDM claimed Murrary - I'd actually hope Holland gets fired before he even thinks about it. Mikko is MUCH better.


If Miko's a cap dump, i don't know why they'd want a worse cap dump

There should be a Selke for the defense, no DFD even wins the Norris but yeah, Jensen isn't a Norris candidate


Kinda like PHWA's Rod Langway Award.

Plus-minus doesn’t mean anything, Jensen isn’t and shouldn’t be in Norris talk, you have to be a top pair defenceman to be in Norris’s talk and doing good

I know I wasn’t being serious

Defenseman in general need another award or two.

Art Ross, Richard and Selke are essentially forwards rewards; Hart, Lindsay and Byng usually go to them too. Defenseman really only have the Norris.

More surprising:

Mangiapane 3rd in goals with 15, Draisaitl with 40pts, or Ovi scoring at his pace at his age?

Ovechkin tbh.

But Draisaitl is so dominant.. he's definitely passed Matthews and also passed MacKinnon in my book

Ovi because he has 18 assists and is passing a lot and has more points than games played which is pretty rare recently for him. Also kuzy is very surprising imo

I don't think Mikko Koskinen is a top-tier starter but even if he had a 0.999% save percentage people will still dump him and trade for worse goalies.


I really foreshadowed people thinking it's a good idea to dump Koskinen & claim Murray lol

I'm saying Ovi;

But Mangiapane is a great pick.

But Id like to add Meier in as HM (sharks lol); people scoffed at even offering a Prospect/ 2nd for Meier (during the Meier -> NJD speculation) but he's been enormously impactful for SJ, and one of the few 100pt pace players (yes I know he's probably not gonna get even 80 but I hope he does).

Well the Sens traded Jonathan Gruden (AHL) and a second round pick to the Pens for Murray. The Pens used that second-rounder to draft G Joel Blomqvist.

His Liiga stats through 4 GP: 0.57 GAA, .973 sv%


Murray was an integral part of 2 Cups. Nobody can ever take that away from him. But, if he couldn't hack it playing behind a superior Pens defensive system, I don't know why anyone thought he'd be good in OTT. And, anyone who thinks he's getting claimed by EDM (or anyone else) with that cap hit (or any cap hit over $2M for that matter) is kidding themselves.

NYI have "up to eight Players potentially unavailable to play due to COVID Protocol," according to their website. Sens must be like, "didn't we have 10 players missing?"

I will go with Mangiapane. Great player, but did not see this kind of start.

I would also add Matt Duchene. Certainly did not foresee 12 goals 21 points in 20 games. Kinda thought he was done. Curious to see if he can keep this pace up

Let’s not ignore Wilson has 20 points already. He is becoming something special and exiting his past ways

If by that you mean his on-ice conduct, I'm not watching Caps games, but in their last game against the Lightning he was same old same old, trying to go after Erik Cernak AFTER THE GAME HAD ENDED...

Still waiting for somebody to post Mellanby resigning + Habs interested in Jeff Gorton as President of Hockey Ops.

Buddy has been awful since he's came here.

- He did not want Montreal to sign Savard
- He was in charge of the AHL contracts this year

How exactly are those 2 things awful? I mean Savard has certainly seemed like a bad decision IMO, and there’s nothing wrong with the AHL contracts.

Unfreakingbelievable. The Panthers, one game away from setting the record for most consecutive home wins to start a season, lose to the KRAKEN. Go figure.

Moulson is too cowardly to name someone who can’t speak French as the GM. Gorton is a great manager nonetheless, and I’d love for him to have a prominent role in the habs organization.
