Eklund struggled to get into a groove in the first, but progressed throughout the game and played better and better. He still has to adjust to the speed of the NHL game (just needs to make more smart/ safe decisions with the puck). But Eklund really played well, though he loves trying to make highlight reel plays which could be adjusted to happen less lol. These are a few times Eklund evades a big open ice hit; with Harkins and Stanley taking some hard landings. Eklund with a great heads up play also tallies his first NHL point from a Hertl goal.

Weatherby goes from a long shot to ever reach the pro level to playing on the top PP unit and ends up burying a nice goal in his first game. What a celly.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>BeterChiarelli</b></div><div>It sits worse with me knowing how the Canadiens absolutely torched any semblance of social credibility they could have had this summer between Bergevin's astute lack of any comment regarding the Chicago situation or their selection of Logan Mailloux in the first round.

How do you indulge one aspect of social justice while ultimately burying your head in the sand regarding both claims substantiated or currently in court?</div></div>

I'm not sure I want to bring politics in this thread once again, but this really doesn't sit well with me.

1. There's a popular belief that Montréal exists on unceded Mohawk lands that has grown in popularity over the last few years. The thing is, actual historians are still debating it. There are proofs that there were, in fact, indigenous people on the island (Hochelaga) at some point in history, but nothing says there were still on it at the time of the foundation in 1642, although those established in Kahnawake and Kanesatake are descendants of fishers and hunters in the nearby area. I understand the meaning of acknowledging lands, but the initiative started in the West Coast of the United States where the colonization/settlement is much more recent than the French coming in the Saint-Lawrence in the beginning of the 1600s.

2. In the wake of all that historical reconstruction and search of truth, the Molson family that own the Montréal Canadiens, built their empire that ranks them among the richest people in Canada today on the back of underpaid and exploited ethnic groups (Irish, French Canadians). They were part of the Château Clique, a group of wealthy families in the Lower Canada with the same ideas of economic development, religion and ethnic supremacy. The most prominent members were John Molson and James McGill, the latter being the founder of McGill University and known slave owner. They have never published any statements, apologies or whatever on it.

Just my two cents though, I don't like when people use history to their advantage just to please the public opinion.</div></div>

Nowadays it’s more about public perception and cancelling someone rather than just actually being a decent honest human who can respectably communicate with differing people of differing opinions while trying to be the best person they can be.

Quite sad.

Leading to;

Never understood the drafting of Mailloux. I respect the opinion that the kid shouldn’t have his life ruined because I agree, he shouldn’t have been banned from the NHL but he shouldn’t have been drafted immediately. What the Canadiens did was just stupid.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Brian2016</b></div><div>Rather see them address their forward depth, which is terrible. But Gibson would be a sweet long term pickup.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>BeterChiarelli</b></div><div>I'd rather pursue Khudobin and tandem him with Smith. The substantial upgrades need to be on Edmonton's blueline and maybe finding a better pivot than McLeod for depth. Another middle-six winger wouldn't hurt either. If Dobby and Smith could maintain .915sv%'s and the Oilers bring in at least one top-4 defender while Vegas takes half a step back, the WCF is the bare minimum for the Oilers. Whether or not that roster could contend with any of the Avalanche, Islanders, Leafs, Lightning, or Panthers is another thing.

Vegas flipping the pair of McNabb and Smith while setting their sights on Eichel and the 2022-23 Cup does pave a much clearer path to a Stanley Cup for the Oilers than what was possible at the onset of the season. I still think the Oilers are distinctly a class behind those teams I listed however.</div></div>

As Beter said getting D is the most important imo. I think their depth is fine on F but they should move Kassian and bring in two depth pieces that would provide better use of the cap space Kassian takes up.

I say Gibson solely because;

If I’m John Gibson, a former top 3 goalie, who’s not old; and I get told I’m going from the Dumpster Dwelling Ducks to McDavids team im pretty ****ing pumped. Guy - he just needs a smaller workload (which Smith provides) and then to get to the playoffs. Where he can get a chance to prove himself. And I think the chance at a cup by playing with McDavid, Leon, Nurse, RNH, Hyman is too good to pass up. A improved D, maybe move Kassian, and Gibson would make me bet on EDM this year.

No team is a lock for the cup imo. Tampa needs a new third line or they’re not 3-peating (they could by trade or internally but we need to see it). Colorado is strong but they didn’t really address what lost them their last series; they’re the favourite tho imo. And the east is so deep. Vegas is crippled without Patches and Stone - they could free fall tbh. The isles may be my second favourites but again, the East is deep.

The <strong>Rangers</strong> are super tempting to make some headaches in the Metro and the <strong>Sens</strong> in the Atlantic. For example; those two teams WILL NOT make the playoffs (but never say never IG lol) - but Ottawa and the Rags are gonna be causing problems I think.
