Rutherford also has made it very clear that Demko is the only thing keeping our team relevant. It will be a really cold day in Vancouver if Demko is traded


Demko is the only one reason that keeps VAN from being a rebuilder, which is exactly what they should do.

top 5 Hart Candidates so far IMO

1, Mcdavid
2. Eichel
3. Hart
4. E. Karlsson
5. M. Tkachuk


Think Karlsson has to be #1 at this point.

SJ has no expectations under them, everyone expects them to be a bottom-3 team, and they are just that even with EK's performance. However, people expect EDM to compete. Right now though without McDavid, EDM would be at the rock bottom, so imo he's the No. 1 guy for that award, easily.

I would swap Karlsson and Eichel in that list though.

there's an argument for it, but Mcdavid is at a goal per game , 2 PPG and Eichel has carried the golden knights to 1st place in their division.

Eichel has been just as good as Mcdavid this season and the main reason VGK is in 1st place.

I have to disagree with that one. Goal per game, two points per game, McDavid's carrying them like none other.

Vegas would be at a playoff position without Eichel's stellar play, but I'd argue without McDavid EDM would be out of the playoff race by now. They allow way too many goals per game.

VGK would probably be in a WC spot without Eichel, I still have Mcdavid at 1 for the Hart but Eichel has been just as good as him is my point. Leads the league in GAR, selke level defense, extremely clutch , over a PPG.

He's been really good. Makes me like the Eichel trade more and more, since it looks like both teams won something in the end.

monahan was totally a pure salary dump
dadonov not as much


Monahan was expected to come into the team and improve our top 9, we got futures in that deal, but everybody knew he was going to improve our team. Dadonov was the same, except he's doing the opposite.

Call me a Demko hater all you want I just don’t see the hype around Demko I still think he’s the most overrated goaltender in the nhl he’s shown time and time again he can’t carry a team to the playoffs yet in team USAs he’s still a starter over Hellebuyck who’s actually able to carry a team and if Demko continues to suck this year my point only be amplified

We think 2 games should be the obvious call for Kubel, no? Refs aren’t going to get an easier match penalty than that all year.

Edit: ah damn @McGruff beat me to it.

Also Maroon picking fights not even with the guy that threw the hit during a penalty review, bruh.

Demko's success is making a bottom-10 team look like a potentiall playoff team. As ironic as it is, Demko hurts VAN more than anything else, since his competence will keep them from getting the best picks, but also he's not proved to be the guy to carry one to absolute success, although it also is because he's playing behind a badly constructed team.

Holl is such a polarizing player

He can be good for a few games than fall off hard and not even look like an NHLer other games

Tonight back to wishing he was in the press box lul

Maroon ( like the whole Tampa team after they saw the clip ) tried to go after NAK, Hathaway intervened so Maroon just fought Hathaway instead. I could easily see NAK get 3+ games but we’ll see
