  1. He’s always played a soft game though. If he’s that hurt he might as well just call it a season and maybe the boys will rally, but there’s no way his current attitude is good for the room.

    Mr. Eichel, is he captain material?

    If Eichel had half the drive of E-Rod he would be the second best player in the league. I’m tired of seeing him lollygag up and down the ice and have a visable “woe is me” attitude. He’s not a leader, he’s a selfish player.
  3. This team flat out sucks. Zero effort, zero heart. Eichel soured on the season weeks ago, he should be stripped of the C. Those who disagree have never played on a team with a real captain. It’s no fault of their own, but it’s the only logical conclusion as to how they could support him as captain.
  4. Half the league does it after scoring goals. They’ll put ric flair on the big screen for it too.
  5. Pretty sure that’s his third of the game, no counting at least two delayed offsides.

    Put Mitts in for SOB and the forwards look pretty solid

    2019 NHL Draft

    I drafted him on my GM mode team. Turns into a stud there too.

    Thank you. You’re one of my favorite new posters, especially in the draft thread. Hope you keep it up, no matter how many times people try to discourage you.

    I understand all of this. But compare the Duchene trade to the Hoffman trade and they are not all that alike. In one situation (Duchene) no team had any issues dealing with the other teams they were trading with. Dorian (Ottawa/Hoffman), in all of his infinite wisdom, came out before trading Hoffman saying he wouldn’t trade within the division. Florida reached out to San Jose and asked them to acquire him, and then they would then trade for him. Like I said in my first post, it’s semantics, but the Hoffman deal most definitely isn’t a three-way deal in the truest sense of the word.

    Hoffman was traded twice. That’s not how a three way trade works.

    Might be semantics but wasn’t that two separate deals? Hoffman to San Jose (?) then to Florida. Ottawa didn’t want Hoffman in the division
  13. I believe you are correct. He started the season very productive, went down there, came back slow, then was never the same after wrecking his knee. He showed a lot of promise.
  14. Ever since Chara ran Denny Hamel and more or less ended his career, the Islanders have been among my most hated teams. Let’s win this won for Denis (and because our season depends on it.)
