I'm curious to know... If this Crisis lasts for a long time, would the NHL cancel this season, and just wait for the next?? Or.. totally change up the calendar for a year?? And if so play playoffs in Summer , or even Fall if need be?? And then possibly a 40 to 50 game regulars season for the 20/21 season??
Also.. if this season is scrapped?? Would end of season individual awards be given??

Anyway. , hope all of you and your families stay safe and healthy during this weird time..


1.) 18 Mar 2020 23:47:16
I think scrapping this season will be the very last resort. I think they'll find someway to get the playoffs in even if they are sharply shortened.

2.) 19 Mar 2020 08:57:28
Next season will be shortened before this one is cancelled imo.

3.) 19 Mar 2020 13:45:17
Players want to shorten both seasons. Start next year in November. It's all over the news.

4.) 19 Mar 2020 14:51:22
Apparently Bill Daley said shortening next season isn’t going to happen. I think have 5 game series until the last round is a good idea. I know it’ll barely help but it’s a start. These guys will definitely need a few regular season games to get back into as well. Might just have to scrap the season 😬.

5.) 19 Mar 2020 15:01:57
I think they are going to go with a 1 game format for the playoffs. So instead of 4 games win if you win that 1 game your going to the next round. They probably going to go with how the standings are right now so that sucks for the teams that were clost enough to maybe catch up but it is what it is.

6.) 19 Mar 2020 15:57:25
I can't see a 1 game format for this. 5 games seems realistic. And I agree with Ebs . They are going to need a few games to get ready. Also read about some 24 team format. Now for those 8 who would be lucky to get in, that I could possibly see a 1 and done. or mini 3 game series. who knows. Other issues are going to be getting the venues. the air travel, the lodging. this stuff takes a lot of time to plan. so it will be interesting

However, until all the other issues in the world are solved, I guess we just won't know. unfortunately this could last for a long time.

7.) 20 Mar 2020 16:53:34
If the league isn't back practicing as teams buy July 1st I think it will be " No Stanley Cup awarded due to Coronavirus"

8.) 21 Mar 2020 09:10:19
Let’s just wait and see and everyone concern themselves with staying healthy and safe instead.

9.) 21 Mar 2020 15:30:47
I agree Chirp, it's just nice however to take our minds off this crisis, even for a few minutes .

But ya, in the big picture. hockey really doesn't matter at the moment.



25 Feb 2020 03:04:22

Toronto sends

Anaheim sends
1st in 2021.


1.) 25 Feb 2020 07:33:28
Big no from Anaheim lool Gibson and Lindholm > Matthews, Manson, Steel, 1st > Andersen



23 Jul 2019 02:51:43
Montreal and Edmonton deal

Habs send Hudon, Lindgren and 2nd

Oilers send Pulllyourweiner.. whatever his name is??


1.) 23 Jul 2019 18:12:07
Why do the Oilers need Lindgren?
For the fourth time, Oilers do NOT NEED DEPTH GOALIES. WE HAVE PLENTY.

2.) 23 Jul 2019 20:47:00
They also have too many depth forwards.

3.) 24 Jul 2019 00:03:11
TyBa4? One more time please?

4.) 24 Jul 2019 02:50:55
Sure Soso, just for you because you asked nicely.
O I L E R S D O N ‘ T N E E D G O A L I E D E P T H.

5.) 24 Jul 2019 14:46:01
Lol. Thanks buddy.



21 May 2018 22:18:57
Probably way off.. and of course I want to see him on my Habs.. but what about a Buffalo and NYI blockbuster...
Tavares on a sign and trade plus a small add due to age difference.
For Jack Eichel.

I'm not a huge Eichel fan due to his personality..I think his ego may be to much to have someone who is coming in the league with even more hype than he did.. Dahlin..
Buffalo gets a strong leader in Tavares..reunited with Okposo.. NYI still gets to have a Star center..


1.) 22 May 2018 01:48:53
Islanders won’t be adding anything extra.

2.) 22 May 2018 03:08:38
No way buffalo touches this Eichel is 20 and is almost as good as Tavares. I’d trade Austin Mathews for Jack Eichel as a leafs fan. And I wouldn’t trade Mathews for Barzel and a player you could get for free in Free agency. In two seasons Eichel will out produce Tavares career highs I’m calling it right now. With that being said if I were buffalo I’d trade O’rielly and sign Tavares to be the 2 c.

3.) 23 May 2018 16:37:28
I wouldn’t trade Matthews for Eichel first off. Secondly, buffalos ownership has committed to Eichel with that massive contract and has apparently allowed him atleast some input on firing and hiring or coaches and gm lol they don’t do that and then trade him 10 months later.



17 Jan 2018 04:51:28
If I'm Garth Snow, does the emergence of Barzal change my way of thinking????
I have been obvious about my desire for the Habs to land Tavares.. ya it's still a crap shoot... however... if I am Snow.,, I build around Barzal.. I don't let Tavares get to July 1st, but trade him for top dollar.. yes !! I want my Habs to get him , however.,I have 2 trades.. who ya take.
FOR Tavares

2nd 18,× 2(both)
1st 2019

These deals are both on the contingent that he signs 8x11 at 88 once he is traded.


1.) 17 Jan 2018 06:08:49
I take Horvat, Joulevi, Van 2018 1st over
Galchenyuk, Lindgren, Juulsen, two 2018 2nds, 2019 1st.

2.) 17 Jan 2018 06:11:16
Horvat is the most proven of all this. I think Juolevi has more value than pretty well all the Montreal pieces. And that Van forst this year should be pretty good.

Make he Montreal 1st 2018 not 2019 and it changes it a bit. It still prefer Van package over Montreals.
Mainly becaUs Horvat is proven and the other two pieces are more potential than any of MTLs.

3.) 17 Jan 2018 07:29:26
Uhhhh no you definitely don’t build around barzal you keep Tavares who is a top 10 player in the world lol. I see your reasoning but no way, I really do think he will resign in New York and imo neither of these trades are enough to get him (im talking value wise not as he’s a UFA) .

4.) 17 Jan 2018 08:09:31
Good points both Edmonton Boyz.

McJesus. yes Tavares is top 10, however, resign him for 8 years, puts him at what? 35? Or Barzal, focus on him, Bellows. ext. In 8 years both are in middle of Prime. I get what your saying

Wouldn't surprise me however, at end if career. m Barzal, more points than John Tavares
I really like Tavares, however, I often wonder, is he a Superstar. or Really good player. there is a diffdefence.

5.) 17 Jan 2018 14:02:55
I think Mtl shouldn’t sign Tavares
We already have bad contracts

Not to mention that 80 million goalie.

6.) 17 Jan 2018 15:12:37
I would say having that 80 million dollar goalie is a good reason to get an 80 million dollar centreman to go with your 80million dollar defensman because they are so committed now, after those moves and trading sergachev, deciding to go another direction now will set any rebuild back many years before it even begins.

7.) 17 Jan 2018 16:19:33
Too much for a rental because Tavares would never re-sign in Van.

Montreal would be better off to just snag him at UFA time w/ o losing assets.

8.) 17 Jan 2018 17:54:40
I think one of the reasons Tavares might stay in NYI is the emergence of Barzel. Not saying it's the only reason, but it's one of many and it does help a little.

9.) 17 Jan 2018 18:20:36
Tavares is a superstar now, and you don’t trade those players. Barzal emerged as a very fun player to watch this year but tbh he had to play two extra years in junior! He wasn’t projected to be this good but unreal player for islanders now his skating is phenomenal but you still don’t trade Tavares. You keep him and you have him, Barzal, bellows, and all those other guys who will come up.

10.) 17 Jan 2018 22:49:03
I agree you try to keep Tavares if you can, and as much as he is saying the right things about wanting to stay, he isn’t holding any talks. As a management team you want to show patience with him and respect him by at the same time the deadline is coming and if he isn’t going to stay, you have to make a plan. You can’t have the best player your team has seen in decades walk for nothing.

Was nice to see some hockey..watched the Habs and Leafs, .. was not as weird as I thought
Nice to see Chris Cuthbert back in hockey calling the Oilers Flames.

At my age was nice to have a 1st.... 1st time watching Habs in July! Lol

Praying for Dale Hawerchuk... for those who don't remember, was an absolute stud in the 80s....

May not be normal, however.. let's enjoy this..

My perfect scenario.... we lose to Pens... and get 1st overall, that's my hope.
Enjoy the playoffs boys!.. and girls




01 Jul 2020 01:49:56
I don't know a lot of the draft kids.. I know as a Habs fan, I want Lafrennier, however , I'm not knowledgeable at all on these guys. I'm going to throw a few names.. can you guys give me an NHL comparable.?

The German kid. STUZLE??

Add who ya want.... I know I like Lafrennier, where is he,? I know he's not McDavid good, but is he Mathews good? ( yes I know he's a winger)..


1.) 01 Jul 2020 14:46:07
Lafranier is an exceptional playmaker who see the ice as well as any superstar I’d say a comparible is a more well rounded Claude Giroux. Yes he is Mathews level he is a sure thing prospect.

Byfield- he has the tools to be the best player in the draft huge frame, Scoring touch, silky hands, Good IQ and an elite skater. I’d compare him to Eric Lindros

Stuntzel- haven’t seen enough of him to have any credibility but from my world junior showing and what I’ve read from scouts is he’s a extremely skilled player, with an mature Frame who is a gifted goal scorer. He is NHL ready and should be a big point producer. One thing I’ve read is scouts are extremely pleased with his two way play.

Drysdale-safe top pairing dman. Reminds me of Drew Doughty

Rossi- Skillset of Guadreau but more solid on the puck and plays with intensity like Gallagher

Perfitti- gifted goal scorer with high hockey IQ

Askarov- I don’t like him personally he plays to aggressively and if you watch a goalie like price he’s calm in net and makes saves look easy. Askarov is the opposite he’s always energetic in the net and I think that will hold him back at the NHL level. But he has the size and athleticism to be the goalie of the generation and numbers do not lie.

2.) 02 Jul 2020 23:08:14
Thanks VB.

3.) 04 Jul 2020 04:16:17
I’ll add a few guys here.

Lucas Raymond - playing in the SHL, I’m guessing he goes in the 4-7 range (I personally think he’s the 3rd best prospect after Laf and Byfield) I would say he is the best skater in the draft class if not top 3, elite playmaking abilities, really smart, decent shot and underrated defensively. For comparison one that I’ve seen and agree with is the Swedish Mitch Marner.

Alexander Holtz - Laine 2.0? Maybe not as high of a ceiling as Laine but this kid can really shoot the puck, best release in the class. Not the best playmaker or skater but probably nothing to worry about. Expect a few 40 goal seasons from him. Think he’ll go around 7-11 range.

Jake Sanderson - I still think Drysdale is the better Dman and will have a better career but Sanderson is making it close, really good skater and passer. He doesn’t have the offensive potential like Drysdale but he’s better defensively imo, he seems like he’s gunna be a real solid #2 Dman who plays on the top pair, top PK and PP2. Wouldn’t shock me if he was picked before Drysdale and he’ll be a 4-10 range guy imo.

Also I agree with pretty much everything VB said (wow can’t believe I just said that) except I really like Askarov and don’t think Stutzle is NHL ready but maybe the delay to the season helps with that.

4.) 04 Jul 2020 15:10:51
Thanks EP40. ya, I didn't get a Hockey News draft guide this year. so all this helps.

Jus wonder when this draft will happen. 🤷‍♂️. bet those kids are getting anxious as well. sounds like a really good class though.



17 May 2020 19:32:52
Even though my Canadiens would be part of a 24 team playoff format, I'm not for it.. I think it will take away the integrity of the Stanley Cup .. I guess I'm a modern day traditionalist.. 16 teams.. that's it . No more, no less.


1.) 17 May 2020 22:09:14
Just as long as leafs don’t play Bruins I’m happy. They get so close to beating them everytime then they lose in game 7 with poor goaltending and defensive play. Especially Gardiner seemed like he’d never step up in game 7.

2.) 18 May 2020 01:17:19
Whoever wins it this year if anyone should have an asterisk by it Imo.

3.) 18 May 2020 07:24:37
#1: 20 team format would be much better. It's the NHL trying to squeeze in MTL and CHI for revenue. It's a joke, though, they both have a less than 1% chance of making the playoffs right now. 20 team format would be ideal.

#2: Why would the team have an asteriks? If at all, it will probably be the hardest cup to win, ever. Pretty much everyone will be fully healthy and rested and whoever wins 16 games of playoff hockey, deserves to be the real champion.

4.) 18 May 2020 16:02:52
As much as I want to see hockey back in any form, until there is a vaccine available it would be reckless to hold any type of playoff scenario. The NHL playing now would only be about money and not the safety of all the people involved. How many lives are worth resuming the season before its safe?

5.) 18 May 2020 19:10:22
I somewhat agree Islandjet .

6.) 19 May 2020 00:56:48
Every year it's about money that part is no different.

7.) 19 May 2020 18:47:45
Habby2 This season it's about making money at the sake of lives.

8.) 19 May 2020 22:03:58
so the economy should just stay shut down for years while a vaccine is developed.

newsflash, there's a flu shot, flu still kills thousands yearly.

this may never go away and will just be the new thing that doesn't go away. is everyone supposed to stay home forever?

the world doesn't just stop turning. why should some people have to work and others sit at home?

if you're old, or at risk due to pre existing conditions, stay home, no ones telling you to go to crowded places, as just about anything can be bought online and delivered. if you're young and healthy, get back to work. this includes sports and entertainment, because really what's the point if you get up to go to work is all you can do is come home and go to sleep?

9.) 20 May 2020 07:31:30
The reason people were told to stay home is not because they were scared of getting it it was so we would not overwhelm the healthcare system. Pretty sure 20k people cramming into stadiums all over the world is not a real good idea though.

10.) 20 May 2020 10:39:25
either way, playoffs or no playoffs, there won't be fans in the stadium. that's already a reality.

11.) 20 May 2020 19:31:49
Ovies right it was speculated games would be played in empty minor hockey rinks with modified benches. Less then 75 people in rink. Think camera men, Teams, Manegment, refs, zamboni driver, etc just the essential workers.

12.) 22 May 2020 02:09:15
I think it is not a bad idea. Maybe it is me being selfish and wanting the Leafs to play the Jackets and not the Lightning or Bruins. I think that with no fans, the risk is low, and since the nhl players are all very healthy, the chances of them dying from the virus is slim I think. It affects old people worse.

13.) 22 May 2020 06:04:26
I’m well aware they were considering playing with no fans in attendance I was assuming he meant 20k young and healthy people should be able to go to the games instead of just going home and sleeping.



16 May 2020 20:07:22
So.. I think 2 of the better Dmen of this past 15 to 20 years, that will probably never win a Norris.

I think of Weber and Pietrangelo...

They are both 27, in their prime. Who ya take??

Ps.. think Nashville Weber?


1.) 16 May 2020 20:28:07
Weber not even close.

2.) 16 May 2020 23:50:37
That’s a tough one, It’s we’ll documented that I’m a big petrangelo fan, he does do things better than Weber, mainly skating. I’d give the defensive edge to Weber but petro is better puck mover and offensive threat. Weber has a more solid body frame and mean streak that I like and because of that I’d take Weber. Weber is damn near the perfect defencemen.

3.) 17 May 2020 17:14:30
Yes Mertle, I agree. when he was with Nashville I use to say he was the example of the perfect Dman. he has slowed some, however, I still think he is one of the better Dmen in the game today.

4.) 18 May 2020 19:33:35
I agree Sosa. he’s not even a bad skater just not great. If he could move like paryko or r. Suter who are also big dudes he would be in a league of his own. It’s just too bad that when judging for the Norris they basically only look at points. Weber should no doubt have multiple Norris trophies if they actually judged by “defensive” skill. Karlson has no business winning Norris trophies, he is possibly one of the worse defencemen I’ve seen.



08 May 2020 15:21:09
Does anyone know what Brandon Leipsic said? It must have been horrific. I read that this will probably end his days skating on NHL ice it was so bad.


1.) 08 May 2020 15:46:11
He called Pearson's wife fat. That much I know. Not sure about the rest. Derogatory comments towards women and teammates.

2.) 08 May 2020 15:55:02
He just lost a million dollar job.

3.) 08 May 2020 17:01:14
Wouldn’t call that horrific and it’s stupid he lost his job over that. Freedom of speech is gone now days people should be allowed saying and believing whatever they want. If that offends someone then to bad.

4.) 08 May 2020 19:09:26
Not when you're a public figure VB. Easy for an anonymous nobody using a fake username to hide behind to say. A guy making a mill a year and expected to be a team player does not call other players wives fat.

And so far as I know, that's the least insulting thing he said. I haven't found a site yet that has released the full conversation. They are all declining because it is irresponsible to do so.

5.) 08 May 2020 20:09:51
Seen it all on twitter. It was fairly bad and the guy seems like a real douche. But I agree VB. Unless every team in the NHL doesn’t want him, he should still be able to play. Washington and Vancouver definitely wouldn’t want him though. Lol if he plays I could see him getting beat up a couple times maybe.

St. Louis fan, why doesn’t it matter if he’s a public figure? He was taking in a private group chat. He wasn’t using a fake username so that’s irrelevant.

6.) 08 May 2020 23:58:05
Thanks guys. was curious as to what happened.
I'm not condoning what happened, as I still don't know what all was said exactly, I'm sure we have all talked a lil s@%t in our time, jus. doing it in social media is a bad idea. From what I seen, wasnt apologetic about what was said, more sorry he was caught? Some excuse about being hacked.

Anyway, he's a fringe player who was caught being a dummy, so who knows what the future holds. probably Europe for awhile .

7.) 09 May 2020 03:06:06
Vbb you like a lot of people don’t really know what freedom of speech means. He still has freedom of speech he hasn’t been put in prison or gaged its just normal people who don’t like deragatory speech have to put up with it and they can choose not to pay him. Much like grapes he can still speak he’s got a podcast now maybe Leipsic will get one too and be an idiot on that.

8.) 09 May 2020 03:09:32
Also I don’t think as of now he’s banned from playing or anything it’s just he won’t be playing with the caps . pretty sure no other team in the nhl will want him either though.

9.) 09 May 2020 15:42:20
freedom of speech protects you from the government, you still have to face the backlash from anything you say to everyone else, including your employer. the nhl and capitals are both private corporations that have codes of conduct written into their contracts.

10.) 09 May 2020 18:48:01
He has a right to rubbish talk teammates and girls in a private group chat IMO. Matt Duchene didn’t get his contract terminated for rubbish talking a coach in an Uber. Not sure the details of his contract but it seems crazy he could lose out on 100s of thousands for getting hacked and private convo’s being leaked.

11.) 10 May 2020 06:01:04
Yes ovie exactly I mean your welcomed to say whatever you want but expect consequences like if your child came home from school and your teacher called them stupid or a piece of excrement? I'd expect they would be fired too.

And ebbs, nobody says he doesn't have a right to do it. But expect consequences when you're caught doing it nobody puts up with crap like that anymore and they shouldn't have to either. now he can be a keyboard moron as much as he wants.

12.) 10 May 2020 06:14:42
I said "that's gay" the other day at work and got crap for it. Didn't say it at somebody or make it sexist or whatever. It's still a pretty common thing people used to say way back in the days, and is super mild on offensive side of things you can say, but I still got called out on it.

So yeah. Freedom of speech in your own home is fine. But obviously not all speech is free, or you wouldn't have hate literature law, laws against treason, incite riots or violence, uttering threats, libel and slander, etc. So, no, you are not free to speak whatever you want. Not even in the privacy of your home.

And for those individuals lucky enough to be making millions of dollars and be a public figure and role model to millions of children, guess what, your freedom of speech is a lot more restricted than the average persons.

13.) 10 May 2020 06:22:48
I doubt what Liepsic said was worse than Avery's "sloppy seconds" comment. Avery got suspended, but still played after. But times have changed. A lot. And Liepsic isn't even a good player. At least Avery was somewhat a star in the league. The league won't ban him.

They let MacTavish back after serving a year in jail for killing a guy drunk driving. And they are rumored to be letting Voynov in next season. So it's not impossible Liepsic never plays NHL again. If he was a better player he would get another chance. But he not. He sucks. ThatsWhy he will likely never play NHL again.
