    Islanders. good to see another hockey fan here. Sorry you lost JT to the Center of the Universe. Habs fan here, so i loathe the Leafs. also, Jeff Buckley - what a loss. Have you listened to Sketches for my Sweetheart the Drunk?

    JT, Matthews, Kadri down the middle. ;)

    Must suck to be a Habs fan right now with the way Bergevin is ruining the team.

    it's a clusterfkuc dude. if i think about it too hard, it's not good for my health.

    Lamo's gone now, but give credit where credit is due, he and Babcock and of course Shanny have drafted and re-built - exactly what was promised Habs fans by Geoff Molson and Bergevin. they've yet to get a simple sniff of 1st line Centre, let alone a 2C. they've dished off major talent, all based on 'room chemistry' dynamics but the simple fact of the matter is that the list of major pro sports teams who have won championships while cliques existed with guys despising each other is long (just look at all the ex-Patriots who are airing dirty laundry post New England). no one says you have to hang out together off the ice, but as long as you bring it on the ice, that's what counts. i was ready to see Patches go tbh, but the fact is, he was never given a proper C to play with. now he's gonna go play with Paul Stastny or William Fcuking Karlsson???? sorry i am going off now, but i am so fed up with Bergie.

    You Torontonians enjoy it for now...

    Just wait......5 years. Boeser. Horvat. Pettersson. Gaudette. Hughes. Demko. Vancouver Canucks in the 2023 stanley cup finals.

    Please?

    yup you guys have solid prospects at C. do you think Quinn Hughes is the real deal?

    i sure hope he is. everyone is saying he's unlike any other player anyone has ever seen, and that his success depends on whether (1) he can translate his skills to fit within a pro NHL system, or (2) his coaches will screw the system and just let him do what he wants. the analogy i have heard is that he could be to the NHL D position what Steph Curry was to the NBA point guard position -- just playing in a different way that kids will try to copy (if it catches on).

    anyways, we suck right now so gotta be hopeful about something.

    Not bad. You can add Juolevi too the list as well.

    Elias Pettersson is a guy I'm intrigued by on VAN. Been smashing teenage scoring records in the SHL. No way his game doesn't translate.

    meh i wish. juolevi has bust written all over him imo. wasnt good for london and was pretty meh at the most recent wjcs. i admittedly havent seen much of his action in sweden. def no longer carrying weight as a top-5 pick. i hope im wrong.

    yea w EP, everyones focused on his size. as long as he stays healthy i think he'll be amazing. def calder contender for me this year.

    Thanks. Yeah, JT did us dirty. True management failed him over and over to build a proper team around him after the deep discount deal he gave us, but the way he left was cold. It's Barzal's team now. Him and Ho-Sang, if he ever matures. Sketches to me is just that, unfinished sketches that showcases his talent, but not fully formed. Grace and the Sin-e era recordings are still incredible though for sure. Are u guys missing Subban now?

    does Jang Hyun-soo fancy himself a gimme pass? :D

    you bet. to make matters worse, Weber is having trouble staying healthy.

    say what you want about Garth Snow, but for several yrs there, you guys had a good team. the DiPietro fiasco held you guys down for a while but Halak&Greiss were not the answer and neither were Nabokov or Poulin. you needed a proper goalie to get you over the hump and steal you some games. crazy how many of your players are littered all over the league from that era. including JT now. Nelson, Bailey and Anders are the only ones left? i like Brock Nelson. after the double OT win vs the Panthers and a great first season in Brooklyn, it seemed like winning would solve all the other glaring issues, but i guess it was not to be. Barzal era now, for sure.
