CBJ sign Elvis Merzlikins to a 2yr $8M deal.

Does this hurt the overall goalie market? Will we see goalies get 10M/year again?
Price and Bob got those big deals and now they're hurting the team cap wise.

If you're a GM, would you sign a goalie to a big contract? (Anything above 6.5M)


1.) 23 Apr 2020 21:46:51
I don't think they are hurting their teams cap wise if they were actually playing up to level expected they would when they signed those contracts. Elvis isn't nearly as proven as either of those two either. Maybe after he wins a couple Vezinas he can earn ten big ones. Until then four million a year for him doesn't seem like a massive underpay or anything.


2.) 23 Apr 2020 22:34:13
Honestly at this point I’d rather see the leafs trade Andersson then resign him for over 6 million.


3.) 23 Apr 2020 22:59:30
I personally would go like 7 million max for a goalie but would prefer to stay around the 4-5 range.


4.) 24 Apr 2020 07:08:03
I'd never ever sign a goalie for more than 6-7M a year and/ or for more than 4-5 years max. And that would be for absolutely elite and still young goalies like for example Gibson or Vasy.

Goalies are so volatile from season to season and just voodoo in general. Also, you can literally get a good "backup" providing you with around league average sv% for like 1M/ year. Not worth it committing big money long term to goalies. Price deal is horrendous, Vasilevskiys deal is also bad, althought not as bad since he's obv 7 years younger.


5.) 24 Apr 2020 18:22:24
@The_Triplets
Yeah, I feel the same way.
I’d rather move on from a goalie then pay him and spend that money on another need.


6.) 25 Apr 2020 07:42:44
Exactly. Caps are the perfect example for this. going to be interesting to see whether they are stupid and give Holtby a Vasy/ Price-like contract this summer or whether they are smart and let him walk/ trade his UFA rights and go with the younger, much cheaper (and imo already better) goalie in Samsonov. Choice *should* be clear.


7.) 25 Apr 2020 15:56:45
Hoaltby is no where near Price/ Vasy level and would never get paid a dime over 6 Million.

Despite previous reports, the Islanders have signed Derrick Brassard


1.) 21 Aug 2019 23:33:12
is this credible this time?


2.) 22 Aug 2019 01:38:36
And I didn't hear it here 1st lol.


3.) 22 Aug 2019 03:31:29
Oilers don't need him anyway see how many penalties he took against calgary is the playoffs. Not the kind of player the oilers need

Quick News on Puljujarvi

''Over a total of five tweets, Mitchell (Lowetide) effectively says he believes there's an offer on the table from a team like Carolina, Puljujarvi's agent knows it and he's trying to put pressure on to force the Oilers hand to accept the offer. If people in Edmonton hate Puljujarvi just enough not to want him back, perhaps the team will take a trade they don't like just to move the player out''

Wow. I understand that the Oilers screwed up his development, but this is just classless. Having your agent force a trade and what seems to get hate on purpose so he'd get traded is... unbelievable.

If he wants a top 6 role, the Oilers are a perfect fit. They need a bigger winger, and he'll probably play with RHN the entire season simply because there is nobody better. Basically the entire coaching staff is brand new except for Gulutzan.


1.) 21 Aug 2019 18:26:34
What was the excuse for him playing 4th line minutes last year? He wasn’t given a chance to succeed last year so I understand why he wants a change. He’s definitely handling it wrong though. Why not play in the NHL and wait to be traded. There’s no way him making a scene increases his trade value which will make it harder for him to get traded.


2.) 21 Aug 2019 18:55:59
Sum tip top asset management right thurr

At what point does mcdavid demand a trade out i give it two more seasons of no playoffs

wasting the career of the best player in the world smh.


3.) 21 Aug 2019 19:39:26
FT4A
lol, now I know you have the intelligences of a 12 year old.


4.) 21 Aug 2019 19:48:07
@Eb
I don’t think the Oilers really did anything that wrong with Puljujarvi.
A) they got tons of hate in the past by rushing prospects into the 2nd/ 1st line and not letting them develop properly.
B) Oilers wanted to ease him into the NHL. They wanted him to get used to the speed, skill and size of other NHL players. That’s why he was put on the 3rd/ 4th line in the beginning.
C) Throughout the year the Oilers wanted to send Puljujarvi down to the AHL but his agent and him wanted for him to play in the NHL.
D) Oilers believe in putting out the best lineup every night, and Jesse Puljujarvi WAS put on the 2nd line and he could not keep up. If you can’t keep up on the second line, you get dropped to the third and so forth. That’s just how it works. Other players outplayed him.
E) Almost all of the scouts and experts expected him to be NHL ready by his rookie year, Oilers didn’t rush him.

To summarize
Oilers thought he was NHL ready in his rookie year just like everybody else, he showed he wasn’t, they wanted to send him down to the AHL but his agent wanted him in the NHL. In order to give the team the best chance to win, you have to put out the best lineup every night. That means Jesse being on the 3rd/ 4th line. he was given the chance to be on the 2nd line with RHN, he blew it.


5.) 21 Aug 2019 20:48:02
He was given a really short leash and I don’t know if he even played a full consecutive three periods in the top 6.
Most importantly, who cares what him or his agent said. If that’s even true. Instead of playing a 19 year old on the 4th line, you play him top minutes in the AHL. Developing 101.


6.) 22 Aug 2019 17:20:32
Stinks is just an Oilers troll who only comments Oilers hate. That’s a fact.


7.) 22 Aug 2019 19:34:53
@Ebs
I mean, yeah, everybody has a very short leash in Edmonton. We were trying to get into the playoffs last season and if we missed, most coaching staff and management knew they would be fired.

Quote from Edmonton Journal: ''fell apart when he was put on a line with Draisaitl for two games. He does not think the game that well. He doesn’t want the puck on his stick for very long, and he hasn’t learned to use his big body in the corners to hold checkers off… ''

Simply put, he wasn't good enough for the 2nd line. In order for the Oilers to be better, they couldn't have him on the 2nd line because he was a liability.

I was incorrect, he was put on the Draisaitl line instead of the RHN one.


8.) 23 Aug 2019 01:58:41
I agree he definitely wasn’t ready for top 6 minutes. He showed spurts of being a good player. I think he was decent in a third line role. It still doesn’t excuse the fact he was playing 8 minutes a night instead of 20 in the AHL. The best part about drafting a player playing in Europe is 3 years of AHL hockey until his entry level is up. But the Oil didn’t take advantage of that a wrecked his development in the process.


 

 

21 Aug 2019 00:51:21
Heard it here first folks.

Derrick Brassard to Oilers on a 1 year deal.
Georges Laraque reports via twitter.


1.) 21 Aug 2019 12:24:27
I’ve really wanted Brassard as our third line center for a while now. Worries about him wanting too much but maybe there’s no other interest for him for the price he wants. He’s got a perfect third line center fit and opportunity in Edm.


2.) 21 Aug 2019 15:35:12
I thought the oilers had a prospect that was ready to jump to 3rd line center? Cooper Marody?


3.) 21 Aug 2019 17:08:18
@Thunder Turkey

I think the new Oilers team is more patient with prospects. I believe Holland is known for giving his prospects lots of time to develop. He can also play wing so we'll see him in the NHL this year for sure.


4.) 21 Aug 2019 17:34:17
Fair enough Barrie. I thought i remember reading a few months ago that he was the projected 3C and the oliers were set down the middle and looking for wingers. Better not to rush him and maybe get more playing time in the AHL compared to the numbers he would be getting on the 3rd line.


5.) 21 Aug 2019 19:07:41
I’ve said he’d be a good fit on the oilers before then someone said he wanted 4 million from the oilers but he’ll probably sign on the Islanders.


 

 

13 Aug 2019 01:30:10
Edmonton Oilers:

- Lawson Crouse

Arizona Coyotes:

- Olivier Rodrigue

- 2020 4th round pick
===

Fair?
Arizona's goalie prospect pool is fairly weak, and they acquire the most highly touted goalie in the 2018 NHL Draft.

Oilers gain a young, physical forward that is signed on a cheap contract to take Lucic's role on the team.

Arizona has the depth to lose Crouse as he is on their fourth line anyways. Oilers have the goalie depth to trade Rodrigue.

Arizona loses an NHL player with a low ceiling, but gain a younger player that needs patience but has a higher ceiling.


1.) 13 Aug 2019 16:13:37
I think Crouse could be had for less. Rodrigue is the Oils best goalie prospect, he’ll more than likely make Canada’s world junior team.


2.) 13 Aug 2019 17:39:29
His sophomore year in the QMJHL has been a bit disappointing as he even lost the starting job in the QMJHL playoffs.
He also stands at just 159lbs.
He is a B- goalie prospect.


3.) 13 Aug 2019 18:32:18
Ohh really? I read he has more potential than Skinner and Wells.


4.) 13 Aug 2019 19:03:53
Yeah. That draft was pretty weak for goalies.
Best one so far (extremely early) looks to be Lukas Dostal.
Played 10 games with men this year in the top Finnish league and posted impressive numbers. (1.80GAA .922 save %) .

Alexis Gravel is second.

What're your guys' thoughts on advanced statistics? It's all over Twitter now.

According to advanced stats, Anthony Cirelli is the 15th best centre in the NHL ahead of Bergeron, Aho and Tavares.
(Via fauxcentre/Twitter)


1.) 12 May 2020 20:52:54
They should not be used to determine whether a player is actually better or not then another player Perfect example in your post.


2.) 13 May 2020 04:46:09
I don’t think anyone is capable of really knowing how high of an effect it plays but I definitely means a lot. Money ball is a movie I definitely recommend watching it dives deep into the usage of advanced statistics in baseball and has a great cast. Obviously the mlb is different but there is many similarities to the NHL.

Unrelated- in my opinion the most efficient team possible would consist of a well round team based on depth in my eyes contracts like McDavid, Mathews, Doughty, etc hurt teams even tho those players are superstars depth wins championships. 13 million on a player is an inefficient use of space. What brings more value? McDavid or Slavin, Boeser, Faska And Cirelli? This will never happen though considering revenue relies heavily on “big name players”.


3.) 13 May 2020 07:52:21
Which is just another proof for just how good, especially defensively, my boy Cirelli is. Selke incoming.

But to answer your question: I think advanced stats should definitely be considered when judging players, but obviously shouldn't be the only tool.


4.) 13 May 2020 16:56:12
Wouldn't Gallagher be a top 5 player in the league based on advanced stats? That's another example of why they shouldn't be used to determined who's best lol. Both cirelli and Gallagher are good players but neither are among the best in the league.


5.) 13 May 2020 19:26:10
As of right now, (at least from what I see) it’s divided into two.
One side of old NHL players and current media guys who refuse to use advanced stats (ie Carlo Colaiacovo) and the the other who relies too heavily on advanced stats (ie Cirelli being top 15 centre) .


6.) 14 May 2020 00:24:13
triplets i miss you, but i'm still holding my breath for points selke, let alone cirelli.


7.) 14 May 2020 06:59:28
Point finished Top 10 in Selke voting two years in a row, pal. I never said Point would definitely win a Selke, just said he's really good defensively and should get votes, which as it turns out, he did.

As for Cirelli, I think he's even better than Point defensively, I hope they don't split votes. And IMO, Cirelli deserves a nomination this year. Will he get it? Probably not, because it seems like Selke is pretty much a trophy voters give to Bergeron, Toews, ROR, etc. anyways, but there's multiple hockey writers out there who even think Selke should win it this year, so. what exactly is your point, pal?


8.) 14 May 2020 15:27:10
Jeez, you went off Draisaitl.


9.) 14 May 2020 15:29:30
Also, I don’t think NHL will ever give out the awards correctly. Unless Cirelli scores 60+ points, they won’t give it to him because of viewership for the awards. Just like they won’t ever give the Hart to the most valuable player to his team.


10.) 14 May 2020 16:10:13
cirelli is good defensively, but is sheltered by the studs around him. cirelli = bozak. at best.

in 5 years those guys you mentioned won't be winning selkes, if point does then ill eat some crow, maybe.

really i just miss taking jabs at the lightning. and i miss our chats.


11.) 14 May 2020 16:30:13
When Bergeron, towns and o rielly are done getting voted for the selke guys like couturier, Barkov, sheiffle will start winning it. Not because I think Cirelli is bad I just think the other 3 listed are better.


12.) 15 May 2020 06:30:13
Sheltered by studs around him? Wtf lol
The studs he's around are offensive studs, no? Kucherov isn't horrible defensively, but he sure is not the greatest two-way winger to ever play the game. No idea what you're talking about.
I mean, you're probably just trying to bait me and I'll happily take it, cause why not.

And again, my Lightning bet to win the Selke within the next 5 years would definitely be Cirelli over Point.

Are you up for a wager? I say Cirelli finishes Top 5 in Selke voting this year.
If he does, you pay my fantasy playoff pool entry this year (or if there are no playoffs this year, then next year) . If he doesn't, I'll pay yours.

Should be an easy dub for you, no?


13.) 16 May 2020 12:38:27
bet. he's good. but advanced stats putting him ahead of a lot of guys who would get votes on name value. if there's anything the nhl hands its awards based on, its name value, and cirellis got squat yet,

hes bozak man. bozak got kessel and jvr and HAD to play defense.


14.) 16 May 2020 14:57:51
Bozak has always been among the best 3cs in the game and in-fact I’d say he is. But Cirelli is clearly better.


15.) 17 May 2020 07:32:21
That moment when VB has a better and more ecucated opinion than Ovie. Weird feeling lol.

I totally agree on the name value thing, btw. Which will make his Top 5 finish even more impressive and even more telling of what place he should've actually come in ;-)


16.) 17 May 2020 14:37:14
Did the fantasy league end?


17.) 19 May 2020 22:08:55
vb saying cirelli is better than bozak is a stetch after how many seasons of cirelli excelling in top 6 play?

because 3cs don't win the selke.


18.) 22 May 2020 14:12:50
How about Matthews or Marner for Selke? Just kidding they are ok at defence, but not Selke caliber.


 

 

23 Mar 2020 14:31:35
If the season is over, who are some of your guys' award winners and why?

Vezina
Hart
Calder
Norris
Jack Adams


1.) 23 Mar 2020 22:33:05
Mine is

Vezina-Rask
Hart-Draisaitl (but should be Panarin)
Calder: Q. Hughes
Norris: Carlson
Adams: D. Tippett.


2.) 24 Mar 2020 07:39:29
Hellebuyck
Draisaitl
Hughes
Josi
Jack Adams no idea, so I'll go with Cirelli for Selke ;)


3.) 24 Mar 2020 16:20:48
@The_triplets
Yeah, Josi is a good one. I think I saw a stat that showed he has the most offensive zone entires in the entire league. (Yes including forwards)


4.) 25 Mar 2020 05:44:10
Good point. And yeah, I loev Josi in general. He's also just 10 points behind Carlson (2nd in D scoring) by now. Gap was much larger to start the year, but I feel he makes up those 10 pts with his defensive play and play driving easily.


5.) 25 Mar 2020 19:12:08
Panirans +- is astonishing it show that it really isn’t a team stat. For that reason I’d give him my vote over drais. 1. Paniran 2.Drais 3. Mackinnon.


6.) 26 Mar 2020 04:14:08
I agree with The Triplets 1000%


7.) 26 Mar 2020 09:09:26
Norris: Petrol
Hart: MacKinnon
Calder: Makar
Vezina: Hellybuck
Selke: Bergeron
Adams: Keefe.


8.) 29 Mar 2020 07:11:45
Petro? Keefe? Srsly?
Also, Bergeron is just a simple, lazy, generic pick smh.


9.) 29 Mar 2020 16:23:51
Vezina- Hellebuyck he’s the main reason why jets are still in the playoff hunt, apart from him the team hasn’t been great.
Norris- josi, like posted before josi has been consistent point producer he’s not far behind Carlson for points and is better than Carlson defensively on a weaker team
Calder- I think Hughes will win but I think Makar is more deserving. If it wasn’t for injuries this wouldn’t even be a debate, Makar was running away with it
Selke- Barkov. Bergeron isn’t the player he used to be, like said earlier he’s the lazy choice. Barkov is the new Bergeron and is one of the reasons panthers are in the hunt.
Hart- For me it’s either Panarin or mackinnon. The hart is for the player most valuable to his team. If oilers didn’t have draisatl they’d still have mcdavid and vise versa, if the rangers didn’t have parnarin they wouldn’t be anywhere near as decent as they are, he’s turned a bottom 6 center into a 60-70 Point top 6 center. Although the aves are s good team without mackinnon they’re not a top team without him.


10.) 30 Mar 2020 07:07:22
Yes Petrol. He is a candidate this year. He will probably come 3rd but it's not like he is a long shot. And Keefe did a very good job on Leafs. At least I named someone. Not even mentioning someone is a copy out and lazy choice.


11.) 30 Mar 2020 07:18:33
How figure Bergeron isn't the same he used to be? He had over 30 goals and almost a point a game player and +23. He might be a lazy choice but only because he makes it so easy to choose him.


12.) 30 Mar 2020 17:19:21
Bergeron isn’t the guy that drives his line anymore, he plays with pasta and Marchand. those 2 make him look better. This is not s knock on Bergeron, he’s just getting older. Barkov carries his Team, not just his line. If Barkov isn’t there huberdeau probably doesn’t put up the same numbers and the panthers aren’t where they are, granted they should be better but can’t get consistent goaltending. Point is Bergeron is still good but not Barkov good.


13.) 30 Mar 2020 18:56:20
Look up what the Selke trophy is awarded for. We aren't talking about the Hart or Ted Lindsay. We are talking Selke.


14.) 30 Mar 2020 20:41:41
I agree with Mertle 100% I’m assuming by bottom 6 centre he is referring to Strome as he stepped up big time while Zibby was injured but if you are talking about Zibby he is a stud. One of the most underrated players in the league. He was the go to guy since being traded to the rangers ( before Paniran. )


15.) 30 Mar 2020 21:43:13
I was referring to Strome VB. Louis Fan, I don’t know why you’re arguing with me, it’s purely my opinion that I think Barkov is the better two way player than Bergeron, Triplets mentioned Cierelli who is also a great defensive forward, you could put couturier in there too. point is there’s not a wrong answer there’s just opinion. My opinion is is that Bergeron isn’t the best defensive forward anymore, still good, just not the best. Don’t just say Bergeron because he’s been in the voting for the award the last 15 years.


16.) 31 Mar 2020 12:03:46
With the 2020 NHL season and playoff now cancelled, do you guys think next season might be cancelled as well?

12 Mar 2020 01:57:46
Any of you guys notice how poor Draisaitl is defensively?
I love the guy, and I'm an Oilers fan but he is been pretty terrible lately.


1.) 12 Mar 2020 11:12:46
I haven’t seen a lot of Oilers games lately due to work but Drai is usually good. He was in good standing for the Selke til about mid-Dec and then the whole team went a bit wonky and he doesn’t seem to have returned to his better self.
So maybe “lately” he’s sucky at defence but as a whole I’d say he’s pretty good.


2.) 12 Mar 2020 14:51:13
He tries for offence every single play and never makes the simple play. I think he’s capable of being a solid defensive player but he’s been giving the puck away way to often and rarely has the battle level to get pucks back. Not sure why Tippet hasn’t cracked down on it. It’s been going on for a while now IMO.
RNH has found that middle ground where he’s still one of the best defensive forwards in the league but is sill putting up points.


3.) 13 Mar 2020 02:15:13
Let’s keep in Mind Paniran is +32 when talking about the Hart trophy where as Drais is -5.


4.) 13 Mar 2020 06:56:57
Very good point, VB. IMO, we should hand out the Hart simply to the guy with the best plus minus since that's such a useful and great stat.


5.) 14 Mar 2020 18:24:36
Well I think it’s pretty impressive that he has a much higher +- on a much worse team while being top 5 in scoring.


 

 

08 Mar 2020 02:41:15
Alright, I know we talked about this plenty of times but do you guys have any new thoughts on the Jesse Puljujarvi situation?

Will he be back in the NHL next season? Will he stay in Finland? Will he be traded? Where? For how much?


1.) 08 Mar 2020 11:11:34
The best situation for the Oilers and Pully would see him come back and play for the Oilers. However if he doesn't want to buy into what they Oilers expect from him he should be traded at the draft. He could bring the Oilers a high 2nd or low 3rd round pick, a decent 3rd line forward or a solid B prospect. No team wants a player that puts himself ahead of the organization, see Ho-Sang, so that diminishes what he is worth in a trade.


2.) 09 Mar 2020 13:24:41
He’s such an idiot. If he just worked hard his first few years after he was drafted, learnt the North American game and developed properly he has the best opportunity in the world to play alongside two of the best players now in the game. Look at Yamamoto, shuts up and grinds out proper development, gets his call and takes his opportunity and runs.
Pul has the hockey skill to be a really good second line supper scoring winger in the NHL still. Possibly 30G 20/ 25A? Maybe he can get a decent 2nd rounder or a good third line player in the off season.
He wouldn’t get a crazy cold tract. $1M for 1 year? Maybe $900K for two years? Maybe teams like Ottawa, Bew Jersey, Florida, Columbus, Montreal?


3.) 10 Mar 2020 17:30:18
If the price was right, I'd give him a shot on Habs. big strong YOUNG winger. why not.

Send Josh Brook for him? I'm sure Oilers may want more.


4.) 11 Mar 2020 04:41:56
Big P isn't exactly tearing it up in Liga. He has just under a point a game playing against guys that are old. Basically a group of retired from real hockey but still want to play at something better than beer league. Liga is like the tenth worst professional league in the world. I can't see him becoming a success in NHL. Everything he learned about the NA game is now lost again. So he would have to adapt and develop all over basically.


5.) 11 Mar 2020 15:53:44
Didn’t Kakko play in that league? He would’ve been 17 or 18 so yes different situation but you just don’t know much about the league I don’t think. Curious to know how many actual retired NHLers are in the league. Puljujarvi’s team has Jokinen which is the only notable one I saw. Who also has less points than Puljujarvi by the way.


 

 

04 Mar 2020 04:27:46
This upcoming draft we could see a goalie go top 5 for the first time in a long time.

Yaroslav Askarov is a star in the VHL (Div2 KHL) 18GP 2.45 GAA .920 save % this season at 17 years old. This is not your regular goalie that will take 4-5 years to develop. We could see him in the NHL in 1-2 years after his draft.

With a team like Ottawa looking to pick twice in the top 5, I think they should seriously consider picking up Askarov.

There's no way he gets past Montreal and Minnesota.

What're your guys' thoughts on Askarov? Where will he go?


1.) 04 Mar 2020 12:45:18
No way Montreal would take him they have price and debatably the best goalie prospect in Primeau.


2.) 04 Mar 2020 12:45:56
Also no I don’t think he goes in top 10 I’m guessing around where Knight went.

I can’t believe I’m saying this but I agree with vb that Montreal wouldn’t take him due to having Primeau. Overall I doubt a team takes him in the 1st round unless it’s very late. Goalies like Samsonov and Vasilevskiy we’re home runs and went in the 1st round as a result. With respect, a 17yr old in Div2 isn’t a home run. 🤷🏼‍♂️
I suspect he will be a 2nd round pick for someone like Chicago.

Samsonov and Vasy weren’t on the same level as this guy,
they were playing in the MHL which made them first round picks.
Askarov is playing in a league with men, a league much better than the MHL.
He’s basically playing in the AHL as a 17 year old when Vasy and Samsonov were playing in the CHL when they were 17. He’s putting up the same numbers they were putting up but in a better league.

It's hard to say with goalies. and also Russian players. I think he should go in the first round, and with Sens having 3 in the first . they should grab him. he's maybe the most hyped goalie prospect since Price. I agree Habs won't pick him, since Primeau looks like the heir to Habs net.

Vasi put up better numbers in the MHL his draft year (2.23/ .931) and if there is a league between the MHL and KHL he skipped it making his KHL debut the next year and full time year after that, never appearing in the VHL.


7.) 05 Mar 2020 06:25:41
There is no way he doesn't go first round, he's been hailed as the best goalie prospect in at least a decade. Even with the russian factor, I'd be very surprised if he doesn't get picked in the lottery.


8.) 05 Mar 2020 09:51:04
I think he goes top 15.


9.) 05 Mar 2020 19:12:29
by the lottery do you mean top 3 or non playoff teams?


10.) 06 Mar 2020 07:29:40
Well VB, how many teams are in the lottery? 3 or 14?
"Lottery picks" is literally defined as all teams not making playoffs lol.


11.) 07 Mar 2020 13:09:30
I thought there were 15 teams and regardless I don’t think he’s going top 10 and Primeau is the better prospect imo.


12.) 07 Mar 2020 19:16:31
@vb
lol what? Primeau is not the better prospect, not by a long shot.

Also, is somebody able to explain the hype about Primeau to me? Seems like Habs fans over-valuing their prospects once again.


13.) 08 Mar 2020 01:44:28
Funny you say that tyba when it wasn’t Habs fans who were saying it. But yeah Primeau is a very solid prospect.


14.) 08 Mar 2020 03:31:44
Lmao. Primeau is pretty good prospect. He’s gets most of his hype because he was drafted in the 7th round. At least that’s the reason if you ask me. He’s being heralded as the heir to Montreal’s crease, definitely a possibility. Wouldn’t say he is better than Askarov. Although having him does make it easy for the Habs to pass on Askarov.


15.) 09 Mar 2020 02:26:03
I don't know why he is being ''heralded as the heir to Montreal's crease''.
Yeah, he was good in the NCAA when he was on a 2nd best team in H-East.
Struggled in the AHL this season. Don't know why you wouldn't take Askarov the same way you did Price when you had a young Halak.


16.) 09 Mar 2020 03:35:06
I mean, he's only like twenty. His first year as a pro. I know nobody watches AHL games, but Lavals defense hasn't been very solid but Primeau has helped them win quite a few games. He also looked pretty good in the two NHL games he got this year. I see no reason why it would be outrageous to think he could take over for Price when price is finished.

@The_Triplets
Yeah, I feel the same way.
I’d rather move on from a goalie then pay him and spend that money on another need.

Puljujarvi’s value is probably the most mysterious out of all players.
A 3rd?
A 2nd?
Nobody knows.

I’m an Oilers fan but I think Panarin should get it. He’s leading a line by himself and giving his line mates career years as a winger. Strome has very little skill on offence and Panarin is making him look like a borderline first line centre. Panarin is also better on defence.

But Draisaitl will get it.

Don't know if that was sarcastic or not, but JP is dominating the Liiga. 3rd in goals, 6th in points.
