The whole debate with goalies, look at the last 5-6 teams to win the Cup, no starting goalie has played more than 60 games during the season in those Cup wins.  The last goalie that played over 60 in the regular season and won the Cup was Quick in 2011-2012 season when he played 69 games.

Nice.

Someone pointed out that San Jose doesn't even have their 2019 first round pick.  I'm bracing for an underwhelming return...

Wait, not bracing....

Hoping.  Yeah, that's it. :P

I wonder if the Pacioretty thing takes Vegas out of the running. They still have the cap space but they're pretty low on the picks/prospects that you'd assume Ottawa would need.

Dallas seems like a sure bet at this point, especially with Bob saying it's likely a Western conference team.

I mean I agree that Dallas is as good a bet as anyone but Vegas is in the WC too, right?

Well yeah, but like you said - I think Patches takes Vegas out of the Karlsson sweepstakes, unless they're interested in Karlsson just for this year and not signing him to an extension.

That said - it's possible a team might pull the old 3-way switcheroo like they did with Hoffmann..

Here's a money question - is your PP#1 unit:

Tavares - net front
Marner - high right slot
Matthews - high left slot
Nylander - low boards left
Rielly - Point

Or do you split Tavares-Marner and Matthews-Nylander onto two separate PP units?

The more interesting question for me is where Kadri fits into these lines? Or does he get tried out on penalty kill?

I imagine if that's PP1, Kadri would be out on PP2, probably high left slot like he was last year.  If that's PP1, then I guess PP2 is Kadri, Marleau, Gardiner, and any two of Johnsson/Leivo/Hyman/Kapanen/Brown.

But yeah - I'm with busta, you'll probably see Matthews and Tavares on two separate PP units.

The ring on my can of tuna broke off before I could open the can.  I expect ISIS will claim responsibility for it in the next hour or so.

Take my pen knife, my good man...

Marner, Marleau, and Kapanen?

I would say Marner, Marleau and Brown.  I remember Brown getting put on the Bozak/JVR line as he's viewed as good defensively.

I really could rephrase it as which players do you think are the coach's favourites to play too high in the line up.

Oh God, it's Komarov, isn't it.

[Some] coaches are lucky enough to have what I call “Band-Aid Players.” When you’re not a super deep team, not every line can be great. But if you have a Band-Aid player, you can put him with two guys who are the equivalent of open wounds, and that line will suddenly look a whole lot better. There were plenty of times discussions involved the phrase “Well, should we give those two [Band-Aid Player]?” As in, “They need a boost, maybe they should get some help in the form of [Band-Aid Player].”

Guess which three forwards are Band-Aid Players.

I would say Marner, Marleau and Brown.  I remember Brown getting put on the Bozak/JVR line as he's viewed as good defensively.
