    Ottawa wins the draft just off the strength of Alex Trebek making the pick.

    Do you think an 18 year old from Germany knows who Alex Trebek is?

    Not being sarcastic, I'm genuinely asking! It is a funny question, but really, if I'm Stutzle, I'm wondering who that guy was.

    do you also force your pointless knowledge of every player's high school career upon everyone in earshot?

    K'Andre Miller went to Minnetonka High School in Minnesota before going to play NCAA hockey and the University of Wisconisin, where he was picked by the New York Rangers 22nd overall by, but stayed in school another year.

    I saw yesterday that they changed their projected start date to Jan 1st 2021. So now the 20-21 season will have zero games played in 2020.

    Penguins traded matt Murray, which means there is a starting goalie in the NHL named Tristan for the foreseeable future!

    They should have the opening games straddle the ticking over of the New Year. Problem solved.

    I was kinda hoping the Leafs would take a serious shot to get Murray but I'm guessing they weren't willing to give picks.

    Hopefully Murray can help spur yet another Sens rebuild (even though the owner refuses to spend money on the team)

    So are they planning on bubbling up for the season or travelling all over?

    Assuming they get Vegas to retain salary (how much???), what do you think of Flower going back to Pittsburgh. He's got 2 years left on his deal @ $7mill/year, I believe, and I think having him there to back up Jarry makes sense to me. Still a young goalie, could use veteran advice from a good guy who won't create drama. Fleury playing 20-30 games seems reasonable.

    Or am I way out in left field because I like Fleury?

    I'm actually expecting him to get picked up in the Expansion Draft

  • H0b0manH0b0man Registered User regular
    There's probably going to be a bubble at first, assuming they actually start in Dec/Jan, but I can't see them doing an entire season in a bubble.

    The playoffs was only 2 or so months and it was already driving the players/staff crazy. Asking for them to put up with that for an entire season is a lot.

    And Holtby went to the Canucks, Markstrom to Calgary.

    I find it interesting that Holtby signed a 2 year deal, which may mean he's going to be an easy exposure in the dispersal draft. A little expensive, on a short term deal, and a little on the old side. So Seattle would probably pass on him, Van protects Demko.

    whoa dang, TJ Brodie to the Leafs

    he was on my wish list, but after he refused a trade to Toronto for Kadri last year I figured the odds of him signing there as a UFA were pretty slim

    and 4x5M isn't bad either, I also figured someone else would overpay him

  • BurtletoyBurtletoy Registered User regular
    Tory Krug to St Louis. Biggest signing of the day, apparently.

    I still really like him, maybe 2 years too long in the term

  • oldmankenoldmanken Registered User regular
    I'm really curious where Hall goes... and if it isn't the Avs, I'll be shocked.

    Depends on how honest is he about signing short term. With Landeskog and Makar up in another year they really can’t afford him more than a season.

    Leafs also got Wayne Simmonds (sic?)

    This one kinda hurts a bit as I always liked Z, though he is inconsistent as hell. Gotta figure this takes the Avs out of the running for Hall though. Even with retention that’s still $5 million for Saad and it makes a hole on the back end to fill that I don’t know that Byram or Timmins (assuming he can play) is ready for.

    Z took penalties and hit, which usually put him out of position. I'm a okay with this trade. His physicality will be missed but a team built like Colorado just won the cup so

    In Byram we trust I guess.

    Well, Hall did say he wanted to win. What nobody realized is that he was actually talking about winning more draft lotteries.

    Got a chuckle from this:



    I just don't get Hall's ambition. I get that the market isn't good, hence the 1 year, but I'm sure there had to be better suitors.

    he's going to score 100+ points playing with Eichel and get a ton of money next summer

    The joke is Eichel and Hall together are going to be very very good and fun to watch but they are not going to be enough to keep Buffalo from getting regularly slapped around even by other bad teams.

  • CorvusCorvus . VancouverRegistered User regular
    Their first two lines look pretty good actually, and their d seems ok. I wonder if they could take a swing for Fleury in goal.

    :so_raven:
  • JayrichoJayricho Ontario, CanadaRegistered User regular
    Well supposedly the Avs offered him $6.5 for a year. *shrug*

    Couple interesting college hockey rules changes:

    1) No one will be thrown out of faceoffs. A second infraction by the same player will be a minor penalty.
    2) Offensive zone team gets to pick which faceoff dot is used.

    Herbert Hoover got 40% of the vote in 1932. Friendly reminder.
