No, I'm not talking about Marner, I'm talking about criminals getting guns whether they are illegal or legal. Anyways no more political talk because I'll get banned.

Been a real tough week for Marner

I bet you 90% of people who want guns banned have never fired one in their lives.

If he's gone i'd probably switch to a Bunting jersey, though i doubt he'd be gone. Maybe 1 more year before retirement?

You’re actually so false.

Jim Benning will take OEL for free. You or I wouldn’t. But he will lmfao.

Have fun when he trades 9th OA for him no retention.


Quoting: Juiceman
Why do you have to hurt me like this? I know. Benning will find a way to screw this offseason up.

He said he wants to come back

So go get that jersey

Also Gio is heavily leaning towards coming back to. While im 50/50 on it because of Sandin if you rotate them every other game or heck use 7 D for most of the year then thats fine.

Nobodies lol - the islanders had Devon Toews, Pulock and Pelech for one of those ECF runs. How many teams can say they have 3 top pair D all in their primes.

If I’m NJ , as much as I love Slafkovsky , you cannot pass on Nemec. You won’t find someone like him again especially if you’re going to start competing . You draft Nemec and sign Forsberg or Gaudreau

I can't wrap my head around Scheifele playing under Trotz. He's gonna want out after next year if they hire Trotz.

I think hes gone anyways. How do you come back after making a selfish comment the way he did. Morrisey looked like he wanted to beat him during that press conference. I say trade him and bring in another center who at least will commit to defense.

He would get a dubious 35 YO grinder to play with Ehlers, i guess that would make Dubois the 4c

To sum up press conference

1. Gio is open to returning for less

2. Spezza wants to come back

3. Dubas will look at all positions on this team and should he make a move it wont be a lateral one

4. Campbell wants to come back and win here

5. Hinting at a Matthews extension potentially coming based on the president's comments and his own comments with the GM.

6. Potential for Holmberg, Abruzzese, Anderson, and maybe Ho-Sang to be in the lineup
7. And nobody from upper management is getting fired (should fire the goalie coach im just saying)


To me I would love to see the following

1. Create a 4th line that will grind opponents down and contribute every once in a while

Something like (Sturm-Lazar-Acciari) where Spezza/Simmonds can rotate every once in a while or in back to backs

2. Find another Bunting or Verhaeghe type (Rumors are buyout and Non-Qualify offers will be higher than last seasons and there were some good options like Heinen, Donato, etc.)

3. Find a nice little playmaker for JT allowing Nylander to be on the third line

4. Bring back Spezza and Giordano (if the price is right)

Yes, but Cooley exists so....

Maybe Tatar at 2.25m could work, unless you're looking for something a bit more flashier.
He's not the tallest guy around so should fit the profile
