Contrary to belief do root for Sabre’s . Admit to my Leaf bias . 

Honestly Mill you have to have the worst case of hockey manic depression combined with puck schizophrenia thru the two teams you root for.  On top of which the voices you hear from cross border  hatred... seriously dont know how you do it.

Edmonton will announce Dave Tippett as their HC Tomorrow 

Interested to see how this works out given the parallels between our two teams and how much some of us wanted him

I would say one season max, if he fails in the 1st round again he is gone for sure.

Coach Babcock likely done at seasons end if not before. The team at best given the cap realities at best case will tread water and stay the same if not regress. Could easily see Keefe as Coach by February . On the Marner front which team prepared to give up four first round picks. Very well could be some.

Yes they have young talent . Key word is young. Also with those young having time to learn and the reality of some subtractions be it Gardiner, Kadri, Johnson, Kapanen, tough calls on a number more plus who is to know how the Marner situation shakes down. He only of one potential offer sheets. Next year I see as a trending water year. Things do clear up after. Certainly won’t argue with you if they improve

Someone absolutely should offer sheet Marner, but I’m not sure I see it happening.

Would be interesting if there is a $11.5 Auston Matthews money out there , with a young but close to being in the mix again. With parity you never know. He does take a regular shift, drives the power play, kills penalties. Where is his ceiling . Still young figures to get better.

See UFA discussion, Dreger stated Marner asking 10.5 over 5 years.   Leafs gotta be coughing over that one, especially the short term.

He is a 5th rounder not a 7th. The 7th is the part of the trade I think.

Yeah, it's pretty clear that he's saying Toronto gets a 7th round pick if he signs.

Mill, I might actually be worse than you.

One of my parents' first friends after they were married were a football coach (a former original Cleveland Brown) and his wife.  After my parents met them, the man went to work with an old friend whom he knew from his college days in Cleveland, Ohio.  He was the defencive line coach of the No-Name Defence.  From 1971-83, he used to let me sit in on the defencive game plan review at the team hotel the day before the game.

Interesting tidbit: It did not matter that the Bills were 4-9-1 during Miami's Perfect Season.  I have a clip of the former coaching staff being interviewed on a Miami TV station from the 20th anniversary year.  To a man, they say that the only game that they realistically should have lost was to the Bills on 22 October 1972 at the Orange Bowl.  Apparently, Saban's game plans had them befuddled the entire game.  They uniformly believed that had the Bills started Dennis Shaw instead of Mike Taliaferro, the Dolphins that season go 16-1.

What the Sabres SHOULD HAVE DONE with Vesey.  Carolina gets a third if he signs...

Apparently the Colorado Eagles have refused to return the Kelly Cup which is awarded to the ECHL Champions. 

The ECHL is in the process of making a new one to award

That's a fun little story if you dig in a little deeper, classic he said she said.  The best part is that ultimately, no one really cares.
