That’s a weird strategy lol. Nashville needs to get younger and faster, Poille needs to retire.


Nashville is a blend of young and old but they are honestly a team that is stuck square in the middle of being not good enough to truly compete but not **** enough to tank for high picks

If they had a superstar Center then maybe that would change but man I remember when that team was scary and drove the Central nuts

Realistic





Don’t worry, I saw a guy on Twitter propose Miller+15+Rathbone for Laine+12+Ceulemans, and I’d rather have Laine over Miller, 12 over 15 and Ceulemans over Rathbone

I saw a guy in capfriendly propose Miller for JVR+Brink+Attard+5th overall.

I also saw a Nucks fan say that Flyers add (to that).

There should be no teams offering him that. And if so their GM should be fired.

He just became a prime candidate for one of the worst contracts in the league, should he sign that.

I'd give him $3,5M, tops, and likely not even that.

Necas and Bear for Garland seems like something the canes would do


The Canes would be foolish to trade Necas right now, as he's at his lowest value and most of his issues seem to be mental. After two concussions on questionable hits, he's been playing scared and doesn't go into puck battles, lest he catch another elbow in the head. He has world-class speed, an amazing release, good o-zone vision, and enough defensive responsibility to play regular PK minutes. That toolset is incredibly valuable, and hard to find unless you're drafting high.

The Canes may also be wary of trading Necas because of what Elias Lindholm turned into right after he left Carolina, after similar performances in his 22 and 23 year old seasons

On Thursday, the Devils have the chance to be the first team to draft three Jack Hughes's

1977 - Colorado Rockies (became the Devils) drafted Jack Hughes with the 142nd pick
2019 - New Jersey Devils drafted Jack Hughes first overall
2022 - ?? (could go early 2nd round)

i get what you’re saying but it’s been two straight years of brutal underlying numbers, if the canes can get a player like Garland who is on a bargain contract (which the canes like to go after) I think they would make the trade.

Lindholm had better underlying numbers at the time and his play driving numbers aren’t much different in Calgary than in Carolina. He just benefits from playing with world class playmakers in Gaudreau and Tkachuk.

I like the fisherman and the Ducks’s current logo sucks, but it’s a crime that that isn’t still the Sabres logo, it’s the best logo they’ve ever had and it’s not close.

A little more context.

I personally didn't vote Leafs as annoying. They're a misunderstood bunch stuck in purgatory (where they belong Sticking Out Tongue )

And I did say Lightning fans were annoying.

This also makes sense, since Leaf fans are basically everywhere. Not to mention we probably have the largest fake/troll accounts that pretend to be Leaf fans taking **** only to get a rise out of other fan bases.

We definitely have a lot of noodles tho, not disagreeing with that. It’s just a large fan base.

Detroit not finishing in the top 3 shows how much of a hold Yzerman is having on the votes

We need to show their ACGM's to the world

There is a spot lul but his stubbornness seems to be preventing him from seeing it

That said its not on the left side

This resistance shows he doesnt want to take his game to the next level

Learning to play your offside has huge advantages

Look at Theodore, Girard, Brodie, Sergechev, Heiskanen, Chycrun

Honestly I dont see why he cant do it

But if he doesnt want to learn and just wants to play the left then we got problems

Friedman did say it’s not likely he’s traded, tbh I don’t think he’s doing anything wrong here. He’s earned the right to be a regular in the top 4
