Surely Ottawa has to give up this year's pick to Colorado don't they???

NHL Transactions / Re: Domi to MTL for Galchenyuk
« on: June 15, 2018, 10:18:38 PM »
Coyotes tried Domi at center last year. By far the biggest flop I have watched at center in 8 years of Coyote's hockey.  Let that sink in.

Never been a big Domi fan and I've always like Galchenyuk, from before he was even drafted. I really just don't get this from Montreal's point of view. Possibly their biggest trade chip and it doesn't even address the teams biggest weakness (centre). Unless of course they're going to convert Domi like they did Drouin, in which case I'm all for that since it'll probably also be a disaster.

Definitely addresses their need at... centre?

This game is entertaining.

AZ would be a good destination, decent D, decent Goalie, and no real clear cut number 1 center. 
Like from a certain team that might lose out on Tavares, or Stastny, and needs a good centre, and has some cheap fill ins to send over in return that can play, and maybe get Karlsson into the deal, and find a way to afford Bobby Ryan's buyout?

Or not.

I was going to say Pittsburgh would probably love to have him, but after the Brassard trade they might be running out of expendable assets to move.

The poster is disgusting either way but if she was that close to the situation will anyone ask about the accusation of popping pills while pregnant??
Regardless of who is behind it, it is disgusting that someone was saying those things to another person.

Agreed it's horrible and disgusting whoever is behind it BUT it's an entirely different level of disgusting if the accusations are true.  You can almost understand that on the Internet you'll always get haters and trolls from total strangers because people feel powerful when they're anonymous, but if it was actually the fiance of a TEAMMMATE, someone they have a personal connection with and talk to all the time, that's just sick.

Hope Hoffman either invested well or really isn't that into his girlfriend.

I was watching the post game festivities and something got in my eye when Oshie was speaking!!!  Ovie has been great for the game for a long time and it was very nice to watch that man child hoist the Cup!!!! How anyone wouldn't enjoy his enthusiasm is beyond me.

Thanks Folks.  Personally I like the ranked ballot system better as it keeps my Riding the choice of people in my area.  I know the other suggestion also does that but it increases Govt and we don't need more Govt.

Can someone give me a quick explanation on how Proportional Representation might work?  Who would represent my Riding and how would you decide who the MP's are?  Not against such an idea but don't see how my interests locally could be represented??

I'd take Kane and contract over Okposo and contract. Or Oshie, or JVR and his new contract, and so on. 

Do you have a short memory? How about either of Clarkson or Finger?  Kane contract might be high but at least he can play.
This contract is nuts. SJ is completely nuts. Kane is a cancer to the team. Not a team player. Off ice issues. Dressing room issues. I'm not sure I have seen a worse contract.

Golf has all the power from hand on top, other hand is only to determine direction.
Your bottom hand is only your guide in hockey. You actually shouldn't even grip the stick with that hand. Not tightly anyways until you're going to shoot or pass. It only makes sense that the top hand is your dominant hand. It does all the work. It's why i've always been confused that so many people golf right handed, or swing a baseball bat right handed when their dominant hand is the right.

I don't get that at all. On a slap shot it's your bottom hand(and the arm it attaches to) that winds up and follows through. All the power is coming from that motion. Same with a golf swing/baseball swing. The power is coming from the torque you can generate with the larger range of motion you have with the arm that corresponds to your back foot.

I was at the game, hockey is a fun experience in Europe. Lots of singing and dancing.

I don't know that answer but Overdrive had a guy on yesterday that it happened to. I assume very rare??

I wonder how many times someone's won coach of the year and been fired in the same year. In any sport.
