Messages - A Weekend at Bernier's

I hate being "that guy" but honestly Jarnkrok has been awful.
Quote from: Bender on May 10, 2023, 08:18:15 PMHas anyone been more invisible than Jarnkrok?

No, not even close.

Ok, but seriously, how is that not a four minute penalty?

It feels really, really, really good.

Sweet relief!

I'll give you this, I didn't like a 1st round loss should cost Dubas his job before. But if THIS completely blows up in his face that might be another story.

See. I see this from the opposite viewpoint. Im guessing Dubas is thinking, if I'm let go no matter how well I've done as GM to date if we lose another first round, I need to go all in here. Self preservation.

Respectfully, I disagree.  Maybe I'm drinking the Kool-Aid, but I believe Dubas when he says this isn't about him.  This is about giving this group - Matthews, Marner, Nylander, Tavares and Reilly - the best chance at playoff success.  Time is fleeting, the core is at their peak, and realistically there's this year and probably next and then major changes will be needed.  The time is now and Dubas is supporting the team as best as humanely possible.   
So what does the lineup look like now??
Quote from: Zanzibar Buck-Buck McFate on February 28, 2023, 04:53:10 PMThat's all Dubas could get for Engvall?  Jesus.

Sorry, are we talking about the same Pierre Engvall who is going to be a UFA at the end of the year?  I'd say that's reasonable value for a 3'rd/4'th line forward who doesn't project into a significant post-season player.

***or what CTB said
Quote from: Big Daddy on February 28, 2023, 03:52:13 PMIm hoping Rielly/Liljegren
then Gio/Sandin to help get Sandin out of his funk

I'm afraid your hope will go unrealized.

And, to boot, Erik Gustafsson is not nothing.  He's got 38 points this year (I did a double-take) and scored 17 goals and 60 points with Chicago in 18-19.  30 years old, looks like he'll be an UFA at the end of this year.
Both players with term.  Lafferty signed to reasonable deal next season and McCabe for two more years at a $2M cap hit.  That's a very tidy piece of business.
Great deal.
Ok, honest question, did the Devils acquire Meier for less than the Lightning paid for Jeannot?
