NHL Transactions / Re: Hoffman traded to San Jose, then flipped to Florida

Hoffman is a very good player.  If he can shed his baggage, this is a steal for both San Jose and Florida.  Ottawa is a dumpster fire.
Cringe worthy.

The Washington fan obsession with members of this Stanley Cup winning team will fail in comparison to Toronto's if they ever win.

Good, yeah, remember to put "If you win, fans will be irrationally obsessed with you" in your promo video.
Someone as dedicated to this team as you are has to have an appreciation that winning here would mean more then winning anywhere else. I would add it to the video. What could be more appealing to a Toronto kid then bringing the cup home to a starving fan base? It's the stuff I fantasized about as a kid.

How about focusing on the bronze statue of yourself you'll get, the 5,000,000 who will attend the parade, and your place in folklore when bringing a cup to Toronto?

Guys who win the cup in other markets seem pretty happy about it.

I don't know.  Ovechkin seems down right depressed.

The fact that the Leafs were supposedly considering signing Tavares to an AHL-only deal to play for the Marlies in his draft year still makes me chuckle.

I'm just saying that a case could be made that if Marner, Nylander, Matthews all have one or two seasons where they are considered among the most dominate forwards in the League, than in those one or two seasons then the Leafs could probably be considered a cup contender. 

Right but what I'm saying is that a year where Matthews/Nylander/Marner combine to score 260-270 points or so is almost certainly going to be the result of one of two things:

1) Those three have progressed to the point where those point totals are genuine reflections of who they are as players

2) It's kind of flukey and they're playing above their heads(or their shooting percentages are abnormally high or what have you)

If it's the former, then they basically are the Penguins. And I don't think it's the sort of thing that would fade out or not be a threat to happen again and again. That would be good.

If it's the latter though, I don't think that really makes them contenders in any meaningful sense. The team might have a lot of points and have a high seed but I still think they'd be weaker in most areas, significantly so in some case, than most cup winners are.

I didn't know Tavares played with a young Sean William Scott.

JFJ ruins this photo for me.

These poor kids in cages is an absolute atrocity. An ugly history is being written. Racism is being allowed to creep back into acceptance. This has to be considered to far?

I have no words.  Sorry.
