Ya. Given the potential impacts, it didn't seem a rule that you should just figure out as you go.

It's amazing how little thought they put into that original rule.

Interesting new wrinkle for the updated CBA:


For example, if Shea Weber were to retire before the 2025-2026, instead of a one year hit of ~$24.6M, the Preds would have 3 years of $7.86M (Weber's current cap hit) plus whatever the remainder (around $1M) in the fourth.

Engvall's skating is pretty gorgeous. He doesn't even look fast, but three strides later he's gone from one blue line to the other. What would help him quite a bit is more lateral agility and creativity. He's all straightaways and button hooks. He's got a heavy, heavy shot but takes a bit of time to get it off. In Sweden he was a bit of an open-side one-timer guy (a la PP Matthews), so if we get Thornton next season... Engvall - Thornton - Spezza would be hilarious

Why is there no quarantining period when they arrive in Canada?
I think they are going to be in a designated area on the Exhibiton grounds.

Seems to me that bringing together large groups of people from different parts of North America with no Quarantine could lead to disaster.  :-\

Hey OTH, it's ya boy and future Seattle Coho Salmon

Hardev: First of all, I would just like to say I was right about Engvall. Giraffes will always prevail. Second, I struggled to find a spot for him. He doesnít fit in the top group per se, but heís well above all the maybes. But at the same time I wanted to give some credit to the kids with upside (I ranked Kokkonen, Abruzzese, and SDA higher). Engvall isnít going to provide major value to the Leafs, but what he does provide is valuable. I didnít like Engvallís 2020 at all. He didnít look like himself, which either told me his offensive game couldnít keep up after the jump to the NHL, or that he was just going through a shooting bender (which heís done a few times before). Considering his start, Iím inclined to believe itís the latter. I hope he can find his confidence next year and show some of that offensive strength he has. Heís great in front of the net and as a shooter on top of all his defensive qualities that are so clearly visible.

Ha!

As has been said, Engvall provides value. I've always admired his skating. It's an effortless stride. Sure it would be nice to see some offense, but I don't know that we will see it.

Agreed. I do like Engvall but at this point he seems like a bit of jack of all trades/PK specialist, which isn't bad, but I'm hoping he can chip in more offense on a consistent level.
