General NHL News & Views / Re: Official Ottawa Senators Thread

It's the perfect spot for a rink with the Redblacks and 67's playing right next door.

Lebreton Flats is hardly next door to Lansdowne Park/Frank Clair Stadium/TD Place...

Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: 2022 NHL Draft Discussion
« on: June 23, 2022, 08:24:50 AM »
Many Leaf fans? Anyone who thinks Nylander is a failure knows nothing about hockey.

Agreed. I get that he's not necessarily the type of player some fans are happy with, but a failure? Dude just had a 34 goal, 80 point season. The only season he didn't produce at a 20+ goal, 60+ point pace was the holdout season.

"Many Leaf fans" need to get back to reality and relearn what a failed draft pick is - like, I don't know, Michael Del Colle, who went 5th overall in that draft, or Nick Ritchie, who a lot of those "fans" wanted the Leafs to draft with that pick...

I sort of really mind Varlamov as a person

We know this management group puts a lot of value into personalities, etc., when bringing in players, so, that might disqualify Varlamov.

*slow clap*

Anything that contributes to HRR and, therefore, raises the cap ceiling.

Just realized this might increase the odds of them finding a way to re-sign Chiarot (who developed under Maurice in Winnipeg).

That would be another choice...

Well, that's a choice...

TV segments during game broadcasts, absolutely. TV segments otherwise? Very much a coinflip.

They still beat podcasts! Anyway unlike his thoughts on crypto I don't really think anything he said about the Leafs there is all that insane. It's reasonable to think that's where the Soups' agents are at at least.

Oh yeah, podcasts only really beat out local radio appearances. And, considering, last week or the week before, he was saying there was no dialogue when Campbell's agent was telling the Athletic there was good dialogue, I also wouldn't say it's that insane - just a little bit behind the reporting elsewhere and possibly/probably out-of-date information.

Chris Johnston doesn’t have real sources within the Leafs at this point.  He should stick to shilling bitcoins, NFTs and sports betting

If he’s not posting it to his own Twitter, he’s pulling it out of his butt. It’s a clear indication he’s not willing to own the info.

TV segments actually just barely edge out twitter drops on my official list of "where legitimate information/rumours are released".

How does he keep getting hired
He won a Stanley Cup just 19 short years ago.

Lies. He never won a Stanley Cup. He's only ever lost in the finals.
Unsure if this is sarcasm or just incorrect.

Peter DeBoer has never won the Stanley Cup (in real life). He’s lost in the finals twice. He also wasn’t coaching in the NHL 19 years ago. He did win the Memorial Cup 19 years ago, though. So, partial credit for you.

Ted Lindsay award winner - Austin Matthews!!!!

That can’t be right. I was assured the players would see past the Toronto media narratives.

How many extra ranking points do we figure Crouse received because he's a big boy. Were people still looking for power forwards in 2015?

Teams are always looking for power forwards. The bar for drafting one that high has just been raised.

The excessive balance of officiating that favours teams that bend the rules drives me nuts and I find it hard to watch when there are next to no consequences for constant rule infractions

Officiating is probably the biggest issue with the on-ice product. It's the worst I can remember it being in my 35 or so years watching the NHL. There's not even the appearance of consistency these days.

This goes back to the age old question, what's the most important thing, the coach or having great players?

Except that's a false dichotomy. You need great players and a coach who can get the most out of them (unless your roster is heads and shoulders above everyone else, which is not a thing that happens so much in the real world).
