The 2019 draft is starting to look like it could be a real good one. Players who ape ear right now to be at an elite level for their age are in no real particular order.
Jack hughes
Kappo kakko
Dylan cozens
Philip Broberg
Some others who might climb into a top 5 spot include byram podzakin robertson dach etc etc. looks like a deep draft high in center and dman talent


1.) 16 Sep 2018 16:32:39
Phillip Broberg - sick name. I'm a fan.

2.) 16 Sep 2018 17:13:16
Podkolzin not podzakin.

3.) 17 Sep 2018 04:36:29
Any possibility anyone catches Hughes?

4.) 17 Sep 2018 06:23:37
Defs not ^.

5.) 17 Sep 2018 14:31:45
Be a good year for senators to tank and get that franchise player!

Oh right, don’t have a pick, this is awkward.

6.) 17 Sep 2018 16:08:12
Anything can happen Sosa but right now hughes has a tight grip on the number 1 spot.

I wonder, do Vegas realize there is a salary cap? 4.75 per year for alex tuch. I know he has a little upside but I'm sure a more team friendly deal could have been reached at this time.


1.) 20 Oct 2018 16:51:39
I like Tuch but that contract seems like a lot. They’re trying to predict his production and lock him up cheaper down the road, I just never saw him as a big production guy. Maybe they see something we don’t though.

I have been saying for a while leafs should try to get Colin miller and I was actually typing a proposal for miller and Tuch when I heard they signed him lol

With leafs LW much weaker than RW, and Babcock stating he would like a cpl bigger heavier forwards, I though him at 6’4 220+ pounds, with great skating and a bit of offensive ability could be a great fit. But if they’re committing 7 years too him, they value him a lot more than I assumed.

2.) 21 Oct 2018 02:37:34
Tuch will be Vegas’ Lucic?

3.) 21 Oct 2018 16:13:37
@leafsGM, I don’t think he will be in that category because he’s still so young. lucic makes more and is over 30 with a lot of hard miles on him.

8 oiler goals so far this season. 8 points for mcdavid .


1.) 17 Oct 2018 13:26:53
Make it the first 9 Oilers goals of the season he's been in on. Such a sad stat. I can't believe they win in OT and he wasn't in on the goal! It was amazing. Lol 🙄🙌🙈🙊😁.

I loved the line shake up for the third. Second and third line looked good together and had some chances. I'll criticize coach Todd Thursday night if he doesn't start it for the Bruins game
Nuge McDavid Rattie
Drake Drai Puljujarvi
Lucic Strome Yamamoto
Reider Brodziak/ Jujhar Kassian/ Jujhar
Drake and Reider can switch if needed as well.
I like those lines. I rather Juhar in instead of Brodziak, I think Brodziak is older and slower and don't like him in. Kassian was out for Jets game tho so that was interesting.

2.) 17 Oct 2018 20:28:27
If Chiarelli could put together a slightly better than average team McDavid would take them to the playoffs every year. 😩 also yup I’d rather Khaira in Cagguilas spot I think. How about
Khaira - Draisaitl - Puljujarvi
Reider - Strome - Yamamoto
Lucic - Brodziak - Chaisson.

3.) 17 Oct 2018 22:50:00
I like that they kept the lines for today's practice same as bird period last night like I wanted.

Nuge McDavid Rattie
Reider Drai Puljujarvi
Lucic Strome Yamamoto
Jujhar Brodziak Kassian

Ex: Drake, Chiasson

Like these better than Lucic on Drais wing. Hopefully they run with it for a while. going to be a very tough 6 games now vs 100 point teams. got to get through this then hopefully all will be alright.

4.) 18 Oct 2018 13:27:05
Tough night for superstar top-line D man Jacob Trouba.



16 Oct 2018 03:28:33
There was a play in the montreal Detroit game that is found interesting. Petry gets high sticked refs don't see it detroit scores.now petry is bleeding like he's had his lips cut off with a chain saw. My question is if we got to sit through a video review on every goal when there is a player close to the goalie to see if there was interference or not wouldn't it be a good idea to allow the refs in situation like this to check the video and see what they missed. It meant nothing tonight as montreal had a 5 goal lead but in a closer game or in the playoffs it would really suck . What should have happened was no goal and a 4 minute powerplay for montreal. What actually happened was a goal for Detroit and montreals top dman missed about 8 mins getting stitched up I assume. Just as an example if the leafs were up 1 to 0 in the playoffs and this happened to reilly. Leafs could probably score twice on that 4 min powerplay and put the game out of reach instead it's now 1to 1.the gretzky high stick in 93 still gets talked about we don't need another when all it takes is a glance on the iPad.


1.) 16 Oct 2018 15:34:09
I don’t like the idea of video review for penalties. When it’s a serious offense, the league looks and can suspend if needed. I would be pissed if it happened in a close game to my team for sure, but on the other hand, I would feel equally cheated if the call wasn’t made on the ice, we scored and then they take that away and put you shorthanded. I like penalties being left as the ref sees it, or a linesman can help in a serious case like that one. But once you let a ref use video to make a call, then they will want them to look at video to reverse a call. I’d rather trust the ref on the ice, they won’t always be perfect, but they’re pretty good most of the time.

2.) 16 Oct 2018 16:43:02
Otherwise we have video review for puck over the glass, because a ref getting that wrong can change a game drastically. Then a tripping call at closer look shows the guy loses an edge and the players stick near his skates was actually an inch away and never touched him. Now review it and pull the guy out of the box. It’s too much. And to implement it for all these situations for the very rare case like Petry last night I think would be an overreaction.

3.) 16 Oct 2018 17:42:24
I agree with you Jim to an extent. But i think if blood is drawn, review should be permitted.

4.) 16 Oct 2018 17:35:13
I agree jim I think it should be left up to the refs. On everything including goaltender interference. But I also feel if they go to review for that then they should go to it for other things. Not every time but when a player is bleeding or is obviously injured they should have the choice.

5.) 16 Oct 2018 21:33:01
Yeah, I dunno. I’ve always found the ‘draws blood’ thing a little hokey too. A guy takes a stick to the face and bites his lip or a drop of blood comes from his nose and it’s worse than a guys losing an eye, breaking his nose or getting a broken jaw from a stick to the face? Drawing blood can be the most harmless injury that looks bad. With all we now know about head injuries and sports science in general, I would think we are past the point of judging the severity of injury by blood in 2018 lol.

6.) 17 Oct 2018 12:17:42
It's not about the severity of the injury it's about an obvious high stick that the refs missed. Like I said earlier petry missed about 8 mins of the game. injury had very little to do with it. It was about the rules of the game being enforced correctly. We could argue all day about how stupid the goaltender interference call is to a league that's trying to increase scoring.

But I assume they have it in place to protect the goalies which is fine but they have video review for that 5 times a night. How would an extra 2 or 3 video reviews a week hurt anything?

7.) 17 Oct 2018 12:18:47
And I don't think it should be a mandatory review I just think the refs should have the option. You could see last night they knew they had botched the call but they never saw it and didn't have the option of checking the replay to make the right call. It was pretty obvious in that case that petry didn't bite his lip.

8.) 17 Oct 2018 22:37:41
Yeah, I’m not saying he did, or that that one wasn’t blood for a good reason. I’m just saying as a general statement while we were discussing penalty calls, the drawing blood rule is outdated and pretty dumb too.

I just think it’s hard to determine a threshold of when to look. Will a coach be able to complain they missed a call and have the refs look? Or will it be on their own will to feel like they missed a call and go look again? Because what happens the first time they don’t look at a replay when a team thinks they did Miss the call? Then it just opens up another way to doubt the integrity of an official. Like I said, it’s not perfect, but it’s pretty good and usually balances out the way it is.

9.) 18 Oct 2018 15:32:50
Yeah will even a coaches challenge might work. But it would probably be better if it was up to the refs.

10.) 19 Oct 2018 20:11:52
Last night in the leaf game Hyman got a stick to the face, up under the visor and cut his eyebrow for stitches. No call. Now I’m going to flip flop on the issue, this is an atrocity! Change the rule! Lol.

11.) 19 Oct 2018 22:37:32
That's my point though jim, I'd just hate for something so obvious to the viewer to see be missed by the refs. And again not every play cause there are close calls that are calked and not called that you look at the replay and say ok I can see how they missed that.

But then there are those rare times that with two refs on the ice you scratch your head and say how the heck did they miss that. And not that bleeding is usually a severe injury but if a player is cut chances are it's because of a penalty. So just check the replay and make the right call.



10 Oct 2018 21:25:44
Leafs have 20 goals through 4 games this year. They had 22 through 4 games last year. Why does it seem like they have scored more this season? Honest question. I don't recall there being this much talk about there potent offense last year. Even though they scored more. Is it strictly because the big guns have done all the scoring this year?


1.) 10 Oct 2018 22:51:33
The Leafs look good and I agree that the hype, or over-hype about their big 3 by the Toronto Media Monster and most of their fans is the reason it for all the hysteria. Also they have played the Habs, Sens, Hawks and Stars which are not expected to be that strong this season. If this continue until the USA Thanksgiving then they are for real.

2.) 10 Oct 2018 23:05:58
There’s been talk of the high scores all throughout the league more this year than last and yet through 31 total league games, they were 6 or 7 goals behind last years pace. In Toronto, I assume it is because Matthews and JT are tearing it up like you say and bringing more hype than the balanced scoring of last season.

3.) 11 Oct 2018 00:36:21
Why is there no games on Friday this week?

4.) 12 Oct 2018 03:00:43
Probably because the big guns are scoring.

5.) 12 Oct 2018 18:24:35
A lot of the hype is because of the PP, deservingly so thus far. However, as islandjet mentioned, they haven’t played any of the top teams yet.



10 Oct 2018 19:51:31
Don't know if you will see my reply cause it's moved now to page 2 but are we calling it a truce or not?


1.) 10 Oct 2018 20:28:37
@ jim of course.

2.) 10 Oct 2018 21:55:22
“ Truce “ this is a hockey trade rumours page not the French Revolution wtf.

3.) 10 Oct 2018 23:15:44
I’m not calling a truce, lol disagree with me if you want. If you do it without fighting for the sake of fighting, it’s fine. Don’t be hypocritical by being the first guy to call names and then complain when people call names and we will get along just fine lol.

4.) 10 Oct 2018 23:15:56
So I take it you enjoy listening to jim and I argue all day long vbbb?

5.) 11 Oct 2018 00:23:36
Ok so I can see you haven't changed then I guess. Stay classy jim.

6.) 11 Oct 2018 00:37:29
I do. Lol 😂.

7.) 11 Oct 2018 00:41:29
The thing is, both you guys are very knowledgeable, so I’m learning a lot from the two of you. It sometimes get personal, but for the most part, I find you guys conduct yourself appropriately. I’m glad I joined this site. It’s entertaining and helps everyone appreciate the game we all love a little more.

8.) 11 Oct 2018 01:34:31
Jesus Habby. I just said have your opinion, disagree with me if you want, do it with merit, not spite and we will be fine. But we don’t need a witnessed truce like a marriage certificate lol

Why that is offensive to you, I don’t know, but come on. You’re coming off like that guy that needs to be physically dragged away from the blackjack table in Vegas. Just let it go and carry on with your own commenting on other ppls stuff for everyone’s sake.

9.) 11 Oct 2018 05:01:42
Jesus jim you have been keeping this going the last 2 days just stop commenting if you really want it to stop.

10.) 11 Oct 2018 05:19:31
Plus nothing you or anyone else says on here offends me. I have a thicker skin then that.

11.) 11 Oct 2018 06:16:38
This forum is a hockey forum. We need a good rivalry. And UnbiasedJim vs Habby reminds me of the Colorado vs Detroit rivalry. What a beauty that one was. Both teams fought hard and both teams were successful. And in between all the fighting, we got to see some damn good hockey.

Both you guys know what you’re talking about. And when you stick to the topic, you are the best two commentators on here. It’s when you get sidetracked and start fighting that the side show entertainment begins. Lol.

As a spectator, it makes for a good show. And I’m learning lots here too.

12.) 11 Oct 2018 13:02:57
You just restarted it with its own post at the top of the page lol so everyone has to see it again. Most of them don’t want to. So like I said before, go about your own business, comment on what you want and leave it alone. If you can’t do that, then that’s on you.

13.) 11 Oct 2018 16:15:27
And there ya go again lol. It actually seems that a lot of people enjoy our fights. the only ones that took the time to post appear like they do. Those are the ones I was concerned about I mean if they all had come on here and said enough is enough I might have took a step back. I really wasn't considering stopping for you or cause I was afraid of hurting your ego.

14.) 12 Oct 2018 18:30:22
There’s nothing wrong with a good debate or argument, it just doesn’t need to go on for 3 days. It’s not always about getting the last word. I’ve had many battles over the years, a few with yup but it was mostly chirp.
