  1. 26 months. I'm sure it'll be at a country club prison and he'll get out plenty early, but hey, at least it's something.
  2. Internal analysis could be different, for sure. I don't buy that Dubas was in a position to acquire him, though. He was traded well before the Marner deal was in place, and Toronto was in no position to add $4M in salary.
  3. You're assuming they value Miller the same as Krueger does.
  4. Really depends on your opinion of Miller. I think he's clearly a top-4 defenseman. A team that takes numbers seriously, such as Toronto, may be inclined to agree.
  5. Obvious troll is obvious, but he has 20 points in his last 20 games.
  6. Toronto has the best record in the NHL since the coaching change. So no.
  7. It's official, Trump committed a federal crime by withholding the Ukraine aid: https://www.gao.gov/mobile/products/B-331564
  8. Not that I want to trade Miller, but Miller for Kapanen makes sense for all parties.
  9. I had my labrum fixed a few years back, and it royally sucked. But I made a full recovery, and I wasn't exactly getting the rehab that Tage will get. There's no reason to think this will have any meaningful effect on his career. I'll be surprised if he's ever a useful NHL player, but it won't be because of the shoulder.
  10. In game 7. To the team that made the conference final and lost to the eventual Cup winner. And you said it yourself, Florida has only gotten worse since he was fired. I agree he wouldn't fix what ails the Sabres, but you're out to lunch on your assessment of him as a coach.
  11. I'm catching up and made that post before I saw the DeBoer hiring. Reminds me of when Montreal hired Julien...a guy came available the wanted and made the move. That said, I still don't think it makes any sense. There's no evidence DeBoer is a better coach than Gallant.
  12. I dunno, it seems to point to the speculation there are non-hockey reasons for the move.
  13. The only thing Adams is better at than Hyde is hitting. He's notably worse in coverage. Not sure why you'd want to go there in this era. As far as Bell goes...why? Singletary is really good and dirt cheap. If you're going to pay Bell to essentially be a receiving threat...why not just get a real receiver?
  14. Teams ranked by PK%, best to worst, and their corresponding FO% rank while shorthanded: San Jose (4th) Washington (14th) Dallas (8th) Boston (28th) Tampa Bay (6th) Calgary (22nd) Arizona (15th) Edmonton (26th) Carolina (25th) Chicago (20th) Philadelphia (1st) St. Louis (9th) Pittsburgh (31st) Columbus (12th) Vancouver (2nd) Ottawa (3rd) New Jersey (30th) NY Islanders (23rd) Vegas (13th) Colorado (27th) Florida (5th) NY Rangers (24th) Montreal (18th) Anaheim (17th) Minnesota (29th) Toronto (16th) Los Angeles (11th) Buffalo (19th) Nashville (10th) Winnipeg (21st) Detroit (7th) Half of the top-10 PK teams have bottom-10 FO%. The best FO% team, and only team above 50% on them while short handed, is 11th in PK. The worst PK team in the league has 29 fewer FO wins, 32 more losses, and has given up a whopping....three....more goals. Much like every other aspect of hockey, FO% has a negligible impact over time.
  15. Maybe seeing the AAV and percentage of the cap comparison in the same place will help prevent people from freaking out when Reinhart gets $7M+. Probably not, though.
