  1. agree...there is nothing saying that Jack will be traded 100%...he is walking a fine line by trying to remain neutral as yes he may end up trading him but he may also end up keeping him and may even resign Samson to a proper contract (like 5 years). I really do not know how Jack could not look at the team towards the end of this past season and see potential (and they were playing a style very-much suited to Jack's game). I am just not convinced KA is going to run out and trade him tomorrow. Of course he may but then again anybody can be traded...right Wayne? But if it makes no sense as in no
  2. TY sir...so I take it the Amerks do not play at all?
  3. I just read that the Amerks play their last road game tonight apparently. Does anybody know if the AHL is having playoffs and if so are the Amerks in the playoffs? Have not heard much about them...Thanks in advance
  4. Did Jack's neck injury not occur during the season? I saw where some guy put Jack into the boards and he clearly at that point favored his neck and don;t think he played again after that point (but did play til then). I know that jack's stats were pretty bad til that point but then again so were the stats of every other Sabre including Hall
  5. Isn't it safe to say that Hall would have never come here period if not for the $8MIL AND NMC? And I also think it safe to say that we all thought signing him was a great move and we all had at least for some time grand illusions of this team competing for a playoff spot. No way KA could have foreseen Jack basically checking out for the whole year (even when he played he was pretty disengaged and clearly not himself) and/or that we'd have a pile of goalies all hurt at the same time. Hutton had a year left on his contract so he was here either way. Of course Linus was suppose to be #1 and he
  6. That is why I think keeping DG as coach to retain stability when the team clearly enjoyed playing for him is vital. And yes hopefully KA with Karmanos can develop into a good combo. Funny thing is when the Pegulas made all these moves over the years, it was thought to be the right move at that time. I also agree with the Lather rinse repeat thing as that is what happens with all the available coaches...they get hired bringing high hopes and new enthusiasm to that team and all goes good for a few years then it goes to s**t and they get fired and the team brings in the next coach. Would bringing
  7. totally agree...and I loved how the team played under DG. Fun to watch with young guys allowed to do their thing. The sign of a good coach is one who allows players to play to their strength as well as one who can recognize changes that need to be made during and after a game and again DG showed he is very much good at this too as he made changes after loses to both Boston and Pittsburg that were very good. The team tried to run and gun with Pittsburg and got beat 8-4 so the next game they tighten up and played a excellent defensive game and lost on a fluke goal 1-0. The team was fun to wat
  8. Here is a big surprise...Hall is all for Jack of course...what really irritates me is how they are so quick to try and put all their struggles and poor play on the team and culture surrounding it. It has been stated that Edmonton hasn't exactly surrounded CM with huge talent (playing with Kassien is hardly awe-inspiring for Connor) yet he goes out every game and plays his a** off and never complains. The Sabres got Hall to play with Jack and even after Jack disappeared exCRK still played Hall on the top line and gave him huge ice time when he clearly did not deserve it. Everyone ***** about th
  9. If we could get Tkachuk, Lindoholm AND Monahan for the two cry babies that would work for sure...again I doubt we get that much but yes again it would sure set up a even more intense battle of Alberta one that Calgary is losing big time these days and they do need to do something big...
  10. Gaudreau just just so small...gets pushed off the puck as soon as the going gets rough...I want us to get harder and tougher to play against, not easier. I wish we could get Tkachuk but I highly doubt that...
  11. although Sam was rated above Draisaitl...I do wonder how differently things would be if we got McDavid? Also would Draisaitl be anywhere near as effective if we had drafted him? Oh well McDavid had a goal and 3 assists last night to hit 100 even with 3 more games to go! AMAZING
  12. Hockey News has their mock=draft and have Seattle taking Miller... https://www.si.com/hockey/the-hockey-news/seattle-mock-expansion-draft-2-shuffle-the-deck?fbclid=IwAR2cED95r1clGm7AL-HSxXDbQMwAYXwgX_b29Mbo_EzauyG9eC-hA8msUO8
  13. oddly I do think Dylan has a chance top become much more of a leader even if he doesn't have the "C"
  14. Agreed...actually maybe the Islanders are acceptable..they can win but not those other teams we al hate
