  1. Thorny and Liger’s heads are going to explode....steer clear of the blast radius. I feel the same way as you as of right now, but let’s hope we are terribly wrong with our hot take. I also agree with your other hot takes. A decade of losing will have this impact on you.
  2. Murray tossed away 1st and 2nd rounders, thus the narrative.
  3. As many have stated, Boston is not a very good trade partner for us on many fronts. Since Pastranak is there only "star" forward under 30, he would have to be the centerpiece coming back, with ++++ being added for any GM to consider. As Liger stated, I would not only want to win the deal, but also break Boston in the process. Even if Eichel discretely wanted to be traded, I would prefer something like Turgeon for LaFontaine years ago as you suggest.
  4. The hypothetical offer wouldn't even get me to pick up the phone. Sure, I'll take Beecher and Debrusk, but you are adding Pastranak to that haul, and I'll flip you Risto for Charlie McAvoy. If I'm nice, I'll even throw a salary cap dump like Okposo or Skinner in there for a 1st rounder.
  5. Excellent detective work here! This guy wasn't even on my radar (due to ignorance on the player), but I have to say, you bring up some compelling points and he shows pretty well.
  6. All true. But I wouldn’t say Andy-chuk was a bad skater in a “technical” sense. He was just slow as molasses. Best pair of hands I have ever seen though. Brad Miller was a horrible skater. To this day, I’m not even sure he could skate without a few pushes.
  7. They were big favorites going into the following lockout year. Beating the Rangers in the opener was considered a torch passing at the time. But, yes, the 1993-94 team gets forgotten as a really solid team.
  8. I didn't say it was my first or only choice. You take what is convenient. And that's a bad thing how exactly? :)
  9. I don't see it that way. That is actually a pretty apt contextualization of where we are at. It might seem blown out of proportion, but when you are this pitiful for this long, relatively small things like this tend to get blown up quite a bit by a frustrated fan base.
  10. I don't disagree with that sentiment. But as I posed in my first post, do we really have a collection of players like that? Is it Krueger? Or is it something else not easily identifiable? I'm not Brandon Montour expert, but I was under the impression he played with an edge in Anaheim. I'm not expecting everyone to skate around like a bunch of raving lunatics (although that would be nice), but do something that shows fans you care. Whether true or not, it looks like a bunch of guys collecting paychecks out there, and it has for a very long time.
  11. But it did, for at least a period and a half, and we pretty much quit playing aggressively after that time period too. At least the game was entertaining regardless of the outcome. We have nothing now but a bunch of tulips who can't hit, fight, score, or pass. I don't know about you, but I'm not a tough guy, but I would be embarrassed enough to start lashing out at this point. Show something for goodness sake!
  12. Can't we do both? Maybe showing some emotion will lead to better play?
  13. Is he spineless or is Krueger telling him to avoid altercations? I have no idea what the answer is by the way, but I'm suspicious of Krueger. Can these guys be really that weak? This isn't a political debate or a business meeting though...its hockey. I want to vicariously live out my aggressions through Montour, so I have an outlet.
  14. Your video does help, as i do tend to forget some of these things.
  15. Yeah, I just don’t see it. Perhaps the optimism has been sucked out of my soul slowly over the past decade, and I’m being overly critical and focused on shortcomings. But when we get lucky enough to draft a supposed best d prospect since Potvin, I expect to see more immediate returns. Again, “he’s only 19” just rings hollow with me. Yeah, I get it, but Dahlin is supposed to be special and superior. Folks can site statistics and metrics, and it makes for a good substantive argument, but after 40 + years of passionately following this stuff, I can’t go against my eyes and intuition.
