Yeah, none of our D have been good, however, Chiarot has probably been the least worst and because of his playing style, he'll be a GM's favourite player and will fetch us a 1st ( you can argue he's not worth a 1st but that's different )

Maybe Edmonton , other than them I can’t see another team who would give up a 1st.

Question to everyone in here:

Now that around a quarter of this season has been played, given all we know now who is YOUR favorite for winning the cup?

Is Tampa still on course for the 3-peat or is someone else going to claim that title?

Lou would love Chiarot lol, there's also many teams in on him so I would expect a GM to pay that much to get his services, with that many teams, eventually, they'll outbid each other so much someone will offer a 1st

Carolina is my team rn out of the Metro I'd say
Florida/Tampa out of the Atlantic
There's no Central team i trust enough to put as cup winners
Calgary out of the Pacific

Out of my 4 favourites right now to win the cup, I'd give it to Florida

Probs rn Calgary, Carolina, and Toronto based on their current play should be heavy favs

Tampa though probs winning the cup as lets be honest they dont care about the reg season. All they care about is making the playoffs and doing some damage.

Florida in their last 6 games has allowed 4 or more goals except for the one against Philly as Philly can barely score. And sure they came back in 2 of them but thats not a formula for success in the playoffs.

Like if we look at Toronto, Calgary, and Carolina they have allowed the least amount of goals this season and are rn in the top 3 for least amount of goals allowed. Florida is 19th in GA.

Tampa as I said probs winning. Florida if they keep up allowing 4 goals a game nope

Im sure Lou would sign him to be a 3rd pair LHD, but there’s not a chance he’d trade a high pick for him. Chiarots reputation is a 2nd pair D so I’m sure he’ll get 4.5 mill AAV as a UFA which means he’s not a fit for the isles.

It depends on the GMs , I really can’t think of any that would give up a 1st.

I'd keep tampa as the favorite for now. I wanna see how Toronto does against a healthy tampa, pittsburgh, islanders, vegas, avalanche in the second half of the season.

I mean Tampa didnt have Kucherov sure but with the way Campbell played doubt he would have made a difference as man beast mode Campbell was a wall. Avalanche was only missing Kuemper but was using their backup in Johansson so technically "they were healthy lul, even got MacKinnon back", Pittsburgh does not want to be healthy against Toronto as thats when they always lose. No joke go look at 2019, Beat Toronto without Hornqvist and Rust game 1, game 2 won without Malkin, Game 3 got everyone back but was shutout.

Healthy Islanders vs. Toronto probs ends up being Calgary vs. Toronto with barely any scoring, goes to OT, anyone's guess there. Vegas fully healthy before Eichel yeah with the way they were playing Toronto as lehner at times looks like he cant stop a beachball.

In general as long as Campbell and the Team continues with this new system of play good chance they come out with a win. As it seems Islanders hockey with slightly more emphasis on transitional offense is the new meta lul.

ANYONE should put in a claim imo


MTL would be crazy not too. Edmundson isn't recovering, Petry is now out and Weber retired.

It's only a rental if you don't resign him. There's such things as trading for a pending UFA and then resigning him

I think you mean Eichel vs. Point wink

But man a fully healthy Vegas with Eichel is scary. To bad Lehner is streaky lul

As if Vegas still had Fleury/Lehner on top of Eichel they 99% would be the cup winners. The 1% issue being their PP sucks

Oh my god, my fantasy team is cursed, Mack comes off IR then Getzlaf gets injured, Dowd enters covid protocol and Nurse, Ellis and Pulock were already injured, at least Dowd in protocol shouldn't be too long and Nurse is supposed to come back soon

Sure my team is 6-1 and I got 200 points last week ( only team this year to reach it so far ) but i also did that with Mack, Nurse, Pulock, Ellis injured so playing with a reduced bench, i guess my team is just so deep that i can withstand playing with less players/key players
