Been a few days now..thought someone else would maybe comment about it, no one did , so I will.... what does everyone think of Ovi beating up a kid?

I would like to see the return of the Goon.. I'm seeing way to many dirty hits, stick work, and then the Ovi smack down.. If I was Brindamour,I have someone take on Ovi right away , however, he is a big man, who can hold his own, but.. I'd make a statement,, that isn't tolerated.. I thought it was a disgrace.. beating up a kid

Agree0 Disagree1

Really? Would’ve thought you would be on the other side of the argument. Lol
The kid started the fight did he not? Ovi did absolutely nothing wrong. It’s not the first time an 18 year old has fought, I don’t know why that’s the issue.
I feel like goons would pick there spot and going after a star player for accepting a fight wouldn’t be the right spot.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Apr 2019 03:15:51
But when the kid asks for it is it still a disgrace? I mean if this was Brady tkachuk would you feel different?

Agree0 Disagree0

In ovechkins defense, he isn’t typically fighting. I believe I read that he hadn’t fought in like 9 years or something. So clearly there was no malice in it because he obviously doesn’t need to fight to make a difference every night. Also from what I’ve read and watched, Svechnikov consented to the fight, ovechkin even said that svechnikov is the one that wanted to fight, which wouldn’t surprise me because ovechkin doesn’t have a history of fighting. I don’t believe that younger skilled players should be targeted just to make sure they can’t play, but I don’t see anything wrong with this particular instance.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Apr 2019 05:25:25
Lol wat? The kid started it. Should ovi just eat some punches because, reasons? That’s not how fights work.

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Apr 2019 23:24:49
Apparently it is "100% certain" Subban is moved this offseason according to multiple sources. 29 years old with a 9 million cap hit. Reasons are due to cap concerns but some speculate it is due to injuries/locker room interactions.

Probably won't return much who do you guys think will be interested? He probably wants to go to a big market team. Pittsburgh something around Kessel? Toronto around Nylander? ( hopefully not ). New Jersey could fit him in cap wise and would be a fit but what would NJ give? Either New York?

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Apr 2019 06:24:42
Arizona?

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Apr 2019 14:08:12
Subban in a Yotes Jersey would be greasy but him and OEL would make a dirty pairing. + they have the cap.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Apr 2019 14:08:27
Montreal!

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Apr 2019 16:24:01
@sosa I'd trade alzner for him lol.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Apr 2019 17:52:47
I don't want him back in MTL. We need LD more than Subban. He was a defensive liability most of the time.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Apr 2019 19:10:20
How about we add McCarron to sweeten the deal . lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Apr 2019 21:11:54
Even though I don't really want him back i'd go as high as alzner and Weise but that's my final offer lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Apr 2019 22:14:06
On another note wasn't his hit on Benn very similar to the one kucherov was suspended for?

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Apr 2019 23:11:22
I didn't see the hit .

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Apr 2019 03:46:03
It seems like Subban is gaining a reputation as a dirty player, which I hate to see since he was a favourite of mine.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Apr 2019 16:10:36
Worst collapse ever. My god Tampa.

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Apr 2019 22:09:03
Based on regular season record I would have to agree. That being said clb is a lot closer to Tampa then the regular season totals suggest and that's before the additions at the trade deadline. They can match anyone in forward depth and I think their defence is better then tampas especially with Hedman playing hurt. Also I have always thought bobrovski is a better goalie then vasilievski and torts is a better coach then cooper. i'm waiting to hear the excuse that they lost because yzerman left or somehow he knew they would be swept in the first round so he got out of dodge lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Apr 2019 16:05:45
Big series win by the Guelph Storm after being down 3 to 0 and for any habs fans who didn't follow the series nick Suzuki dominated.

Agree2 Disagree1

16 Apr 2019 21:58:29
oilers terminate lucic contact due too breach of contract when he got into a fight in a bar and had to miss a game due to injury from fighting in a bar
what are your thoughts on that could it happen?

Agree1 Disagree3

16 Apr 2019 23:22:30
In a world where Hossa developed a mysterious skin allergy to hockey equipment, I think nhl teams will go to leaps and bounds to remove unwanted players/ caphits from their roster.

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Apr 2019 04:12:33
Send Lucic to Robidas island.

Agree1 Disagree1

15 Apr 2019 15:06:12
Kadri is poor and I hate him but would like to see thoughts on value here, taken from an article:

Oil: Larsson

Leafs: Kadri.

Agree0 Disagree5

15 Apr 2019 18:58:47
As much a Kadri brings to a team he is a liability because the next undisciplined play would lead to a 10+ game suspension. This alone brings down Kadri's value.

Agree1 Disagree7

15 Apr 2019 18:55:15
I think I would value Larsson more just speaking from a value standpoint. Kadri is on a good contract for the next 2 years I believe and will be hard to resign at a good deal while he starts to decline.
From a team standpoint, I don't think the oilers would want Kadri and should keep Larsson. Not to say that another team might be interested at a similar cost for team needs.

Agree3 Disagree5

14 Apr 2019 19:19:04
Lehner and the islanders 4th line are the MVPs so far in this playoffs imo.

Agree1 Disagree3

15 Apr 2019 01:36:52
Everyone laughed at Lou Lamorello for trading for Matt Martin but that move turned out amazing. Best shut down line In the game by far at the moment.

Agree0 Disagree3

15 Apr 2019 04:26:39
Cbj is mvp

Agree2 Disagree0

15 Apr 2019 20:49:05
No Cbj isn't Tampa is just playing terrible like absolutely horrendous anyone who watches hockey would agree. NYI could win the Cup if there 4th line keeps playing the way they are.

Agree0 Disagree6

16 Apr 2019 00:14:11
Islanders are also playing the worse team in the east imo. Let's see how they do against a good team in the 2nd round. If they are still winning then maybe ill jump on the bandwagon too.

Agree2 Disagree0

17 Apr 2019 01:11:44
Pittsburgh the worst team in the east? They’re much better then Toronto. Crosby, Guzentzel, Malkin, Kessel And Letang vs Mathews, Marner, Tavares, Nylander And Rielly? I’ll take Pittsburgh’s core short term.

Agree0 Disagree1

17 Apr 2019 15:43:04
Yeah but the problem is they have nothing else Toronto doesn’t have the best depth in the league or anything but they do have an edge on pits on both offense and even defense combine that with most of Pittsburgh’s core is aging and or one hit away from retiring and yes imo they have the worst team of all those that made the playoffs in the east.

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Apr 2019 16:44:49
Lol yeah VBBVVVBBBV you can’t just compare half a team. that’s not how hockey works.

Where do you draw the line? The Oilers arguably have a better “core” with McDavid, Draisaitl, RNH, etc. than a lot of teams in the West. Doesn’t mean they are a better team.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Apr 2019 20:32:21
Okay unsportsmanlike I’ll do a in depth analysis for you of lines

1st line

Rust-Crosby-Guzentzel vs Hyman-Tavares-Marner

Pittsburgh wins

2nd line

Hornqvist-Malkin-Kessel vs Johnsson-Mathews-Kappanen

Pittsburgh wins

3rd line

Simon-Bjustad-McCann vs Marleau-Kadri-Nylander

Toronto wins

4th lines are a draw

PP Pittsburgh wins

PK Toronto wins

1st pair

Dumoulin-Letang vs Hanisey-Rielly

Pittsburgh win? It’s close

2nd pair

Matta-Gubrandson vs Muzzin and Zaitsev

Toronto wins

3rd pair

Johnson-Schultz vs Gardiner and Dermotte

Toronto probably wins

Murray vs Andersen I mean this is very debatable I mean Andersen is very good and consistent but Murray is phenomenal at times and really takes it to the next level but can be inconsistent.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Apr 2019 05:24:48
Ridiculous cross check to the head by Kadri. Repeat offender, should be 3 games at least. Maybe more considering it was obviously intentional.

Agree9 Disagree11

14 Apr 2019 16:10:38
I felt like I could actually see it in Kadris eyes in game 1 that he was going to do something stupid again. The only thing saved him in that game was everything was going the leafs way. In his defence the Bruins got away with a bit of dirt too but that's really still no excuse for what he did. If it was me with him being a repeat guy and the fact this kind of thing is a yearly trend for him at this time I'd give him at least 5.

Agree4 Disagree3

14 Apr 2019 16:15:30
I'd say a lot more than 3 games . Kadri is one of the guys I like on the Leafs. but that was out of line. I personally think his playoff should be over. That was total intent to injure.

Agree3 Disagree2

14 Apr 2019 16:38:21
Yeah he’s got to be better composed. I get that the Bruins were taking liberties out there and if the refs were doing there job he wouldn’t have to take the law into his own hands but he just totally fell into the bruins plan (again) . Him being out probably for the rest of the series throws away the depth advantage the leafs have down the middle which was there greatest asset. With Krug potentially out for a while they were still in really good shape heading back to toronto 1-1. Dumb play. why not just drop the mitts instead? Serves the same purpose but you don’t risk getting banished from the league 😂.

Agree3 Disagree0

14 Apr 2019 17:14:23
Kadri should get a minimum of 6 games for his cheap shot on DeBrusk coupled with his history of suspensions for head shots. The Leaf fans and media monster got what they wanted from him as he's one of the only players to stand up to the physical Bruins its only he doesn't have the intelligence to know when not to cross the line.

Agree2 Disagree7

15 Apr 2019 01:42:27
Krug is a bigger loss compared to Kadri and that is undebatable. Kadri is a very good 3 C And is a tough loss but is manageable. Krug controls the offence through the backend he is the only puck mover on the Boston defence And is absolutely vital to the success of the Bruins PP. McAvoy will be expected to fill that void and I do not believe he will be an effective replacement.

Agree0 Disagree3

15 Apr 2019 03:46:32
In all honesty I don't think the leafs will miss him.

Agree2 Disagree0

15 Apr 2019 15:02:55
He was offered an in-person hearing, so the League can suspend him for 5+ games. Hopefully they will.

Agree2 Disagree3

15 Apr 2019 15:23:46
To say that Kadri stepped up to protect anyone is an overstatement. If he dropped his gloves i would have commended that. He blindside crosschecked someone to the side of the head. Garbage move, did the same thing last year and got 3 games. I say 7 game suspension.

Agree2 Disagree1

15 Apr 2019 18:06:03
Krug and Debrusk are scheduled to play tonight.

Agree2 Disagree1

12 Apr 2019 07:11:26
Nikita Zaitsev actually looked really good tonight :o

Agree6 Disagree0

12 Apr 2019 13:23:51
still not finding anyone to take that contract.

Agree0 Disagree6

12 Apr 2019 17:28:53
He actually did but was it the leafs were really good or were the Bruins really bad? Idk but the next game or two should tell the tale. I think the Bruins if they start seeing the same result in game 2 will begin to dump and chase and go strong on the forecheck. It looked to me the leafs were the more physical team last night which really leads me to believe the Bruins were not in the right mindset. I will also never understand why Cassidy would actually try to get chara matched up against the marner line. marner will eat him alive. I saw first hand how guys like desharnais and cammelleri had there way with him 5 years ago when he wasn't quite as slow as he is now. If they can do it marner should be able to do it in his sleep.

Agree0 Disagree2

13 Apr 2019 16:59:22
If someone took clarkson someone would take Zaitsev if he plays like that all playoffs he could get a draft pick. I’d take him over Johnson.

Agree1 Disagree2

13 Apr 2019 21:42:14
Erik johnson?

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Apr 2019 22:35:19
I think he meant jack Johnson and if so I'd almost have to agree with him.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Apr 2019 01:53:07
Id take him over jack johnson if he continues to play the way he has. Leafs ain't joking around, flames and leafs are our only hope. Jets are unfortunetly not good enough to beat the Blues...

Agree1 Disagree0

14 Apr 2019 14:25:47
Yah Jack Johnson. Eric Johnson is underrated.

Agree0 Disagree1

12 Apr 2019 06:12:21
I wanted to do a list of best players ever played against/with or watched before they were in the NHL. These rankings have nothing to do with how good these players actually are, just my opinion. I thought it'd be interesting to see if anyone else played against some NHLers.

1. Ty Smith - He scored 4 goals against my team as a Dman in spring hockey. They guy was impossible to stop

2. Bowen Byram - I played minor hockey for years against him and he was just so much better than everyone else it was insane

3. Jasper Wetherby - played against him when he was with Wenatchee. He laid me out

4. Massimo Rizzo - Played against him. He scored. He was so shifty

5. Kale Howarth - played with him. So strong and such a good skater

6. Jake Lucchini - Just signed in the AHL. He's just so solid in everything

7. Connor Jones - played against him for like five years at hockey school. Probably the most intense guy I've met

8. Seth Barton - played with him a year ago. He's still a long ways away from the NHL but has tons of raw talent

9. Luka Burzan - he went undrafted last year but I expect him to go this year. Hat trick against my team in spring hockey

10. Travis St. Denis - amazing shot. Could see him getting a shot in the NHL pretty soon

Agree1 Disagree2

12 Apr 2019 09:29:01
Where ya from? I'm a Cranbrook boy. I'm a lot older than you if you played against Byram. I use to play with Rob Neidermayer.

Agree0 Disagree1

12 Apr 2019 11:14:16
Hahaha Sosa i’m in the same boat. maybe I played hockey with some of those kids’ grandparents.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Apr 2019 11:24:10
You a Kootenay boy as well Unsportsmanlike?

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Apr 2019 11:37:52
West Kootenays. Byram was unreal. It’s funny seeing a guy go from AA hockey to potential top 5 pick.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Apr 2019 14:37:06
I skated circles around Michael Ryder for years. He kept playing while I leaned more toward sex drugs and rock and roll. Now he is a millionaire and I'm posting on here.

Agree1 Disagree1

12 Apr 2019 15:00:55
no I didn't mean same as from the region. i meant same as in old AF haha.

Agree1 Disagree0

13 Apr 2019 00:28:28
I’ve played with Anderson MacDonald, Lynden Breen, Josh Lawrence, Jaxon Bellamy, Peter Reynolds, Lukas Cormier And Cam Whynot. Practiced with Joe Veleno and Shane Bowers. Played against Alex Lafreniere, Alex Newhook, Brett Budgel, Dawson Mercer And Jacob Pelletier.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Apr 2019 02:30:52
It’s pretty cool to see guys you’ve played against or with make it to the show. I got 3 shifts when we played Victoria so I got a great view of him the whole night.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Apr 2019 23:23:49
Played a pick up game with Aaron Brand, we’re I live we used to have a huge county wide roller hockey tourney called “the coupe classic” coupe being the name of our roller hockey court. Anyways Rick Nash played in this tournament one year. or at least a game. That was pretty cool as that was before he was drafted and I think he would have been playing for the knights in his rookie year.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Apr 2019 05:18:36
i played in bantam and midget tournaments in the late 90's, some of the names in the program include

carlo colaiacovo - mississauga reps

derek roy - eastern ontario cobras

cody Mccormick - Elgin Middlesex chiefs

daniel paille - welland tigers

kevin klein - kitchener Jr rangers

matt moulsen - mississauga braves

matt stajan, chris campoli, Matt foy - mississauga senators

lee stempniak, Mike cammalleri, Jay mcclement and Steve eminger.
