Man it must be weird for guys to play for GMs that were former teammates of theirs. Fleury under Guerin, Vlasic under Grier, Kopitar/Quick under Blake, etc. Maybe a couple more. I wonder what that dynamic is like lol

D. Brown under Blake and E. Staal under Kevyn Adams in Buffalo played under former teammates too.


Toronto was close but JT's old wing is a scout and not a gm in our organization lul

Miller Petey and Horvat will all be centers so we can roll three elite lines. Having Dickinson kinda kills the offense. See my above comment for the best top 9 like combos


horvat as 3C flushed cheeks
i dont like it

I mean we basically did that last season. We basically have a first line, and two second lines. It’s not like our third line gets less ice time. This allows us to have 3 elite offensive lines that can play all around the same amount of time. He gets PP time anyway

Yikes I just had an Isles fan tell me that Kiefer Bellows is better than Höglander, Podkolzin, Pearson, and Kuzmenko 😬


I mean, I’d take Bellows over Kuzmenko and probably Pearson too ( Bellows is younger and cheaper for about the same talent level as Pearson ) but saying he’s better than Hoglander or Pod is just wrong

Great for Gaudreau for going to a team with a rich hockey history in a beautiful city


0 pressure to play and 0 pressure to win. Perfect scenario for someone who just plays for money.

In order to play hockey with 0 pressure. Columbus isn't anywhere close to winning and he definitely won't be blamed for losing.

Cant believe we lost @bobcat205 saying “Even if we’re holding Gaudreau family hostage” - proceeds to defend Jarmo, with thread 7.

Truly heartbreaking loss.

Klingberg to SEA kinda makes sense... IDK the latest rumor about him tho

they have the cap space and it might be an addition that helps them get into playoffs, assuming Grub doesnt play like the worst goalie ever

Apparently Seattle was close to acquiring Petry... They are definitely looking for a RHD

Lou has now been the last gm to do anything in free agency 2/4 years as isles gm. He needs to be fired, like three years ago

You think?

Out:
Campbell
Mrazek
Kase
Blackwell
Mikheyev
Spezza
Lybuschkin
2022 1st
51 goals Out

In:
Murray
Samsonov
NA-K
Gaudette
Malgin
Mete
Benn
2022 2nd (CHI)
2023 3rd (OTT)
2024 7th (OTT)
17 goals In

If that doesn’t evoke confidence I don’t know what will.

This is perfectly fine. Great, in fact. It’s a W to simply not have him on the roster. If he goes to Arizona and Chychrun comes back that would be a huge W. Or even if it’s just a pure dump, it opens the door for the streak to continue with the Marino acquisition tomorrow smile
