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.

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.

Barry Trotz should just win coach of the year every year.
IMO.. he's the best coach since the turn of the century.




09 Jun 2021 16:58:57
So obviously I'm extremely happy about how my Habs are doing. It's been a lot of fun to watch and there does seem to be a different feeling than a couple other runs they have had..,
However, I just don't see anyone beating Tampa again this year.. I sure hope i'm wrong, and its my team hoisting the cup.

Is Tampa the most complete team in maybe 20 years or so..I think of Chicago, Pittsburgh and LA who have won multiple cups the last decade or so.. were any of those teams better than the Bolts?


1.) 09 Jun 2021 17:59:44
Chicago was for sure.

2.) 09 Jun 2021 18:30:03
That's a good question. I think a lot would pick Tampa due to recency bias, but they are a very good team.

Chicago was good, but Tampa would have the goaltending advantage.

LA could put up a fight too, but they were a more heavy team, so things they got away with then, they may not now.

Pittsburgh on their prime as well would be good, but I think Tampa would have the advantage defensively.

I think Chicago or Pittsburgh would give then the best run. Who would you pick Sosa?

3.) 09 Jun 2021 21:56:21
Im going to be called a biased homer for this comment. If Montreal keeps playing the way they are playing and stick to the system while adapting if necessary, they can compete with Tampa.

4.) 09 Jun 2021 23:00:42
I don't think any of them were as good.
Vasi is the beat goalie, (next to playoff Price), Hedman might be the best D man since Lidstrom, and then you add all the other guys like McDonough, Sergachev ect to that D. Up front, all that firepower with Kucherov, Stamkos, the offense and 2 way play of Point, then add Cirelli, Kilorn and others. It's a really good team up and down the line up.

I think Chicago would give them the best run, but I still believe Tampa would come out on top.

5.) 10 Jun 2021 02:36:22
Chicago with P. Kane, Towes, Sharp, Hossa, Ladd, Keith, Buffuglyn, Campbell, and Seabrook was special

Detroit with Federov, Yzerman, Brett Hull, Brandon Shannahan, Luc Roubatails, Pavel Datsyuk, Hendrick Zetterberg, Nicklas Lindstrom, Chris Chelios and Dominic Hasek was the greatest team ever on paper but they didn’t win. A lot of those players were up there in age at the time tho.

6.) 10 Jun 2021 03:52:11
I don’t care I just hope Vegas lose.

7.) 10 Jun 2021 04:39:04
Was hasek and zetterberg in Detroit the same time? I didn’t think they were. I think the rest minus zetterberg did win a cup together though right? Still probably not best team on paper either way.

8.) 10 Jun 2021 19:08:38
You’re definitely bias Anderson but any team can win a series, especially with a hot goalie. I disagree Barrie, I’d love to see Pacioretty against Suzuki. If Colorado loses tonight, Kadri should be traded to Arizona. It’s one thing to be missing a top player due to injury, it’s a whole different story when it’s because someone can’t control their emotions. I personally think Colorado or Vegas will win the cup over Tampa.

9.) 12 Jun 2021 00:50:43
I know I am Toronto17. I do think I’m realistic tho. I have said at the beginning of the year that this was Montreal cup to loose this year. Everybody on this site called me exactly what you just called me. Now there is 4 teams left and altough we still have the hardest second half to accomplish, my comment has aged well hasn’t it? Good on Toronto for winning 3 games, but anyone who actually knows about playoff hockey could of told you Montreal was going to come back. There is just a handful of teams in this league willing to pay the price. So yes I am biased but at least it’s for a team that still has a solid chance of winning it all this year!

10.) 12 Jun 2021 15:40:03
“Anyone who actually knows about playoff hockey could have told you Montreal was going to come back”. This is why I said habby and Sosa were the only respectful habs fans on this site. That is a ridiculous comment. I’m sure many people hoped they’d come back and many leaf fans knew they could blow it. I believe teams have come back from down 3-1 about 30 times in NHL history, so it’s not about knowing playoff hockey.



01 Jun 2021 05:23:57
Hahhah aha.. to me..beating the MAPLEGOOFS was my cup


1.) 01 Jun 2021 20:24:50
I don’t like Toronto either but I feel so bad for Leafs fans. The Leafs are so cursed.



19 May 2021 00:46:24
What do Habs fans think of Ducharmes decision to sit KK, Caufield and Romanov for game 1?


1.) 19 May 2021 14:25:19
I don’t mind it if the intention is to swap them out for the underachievers in game 1. Kotkaniemi is out cause he didn’t play well down the stretch the other two I assume it’s to just give them a bit of a look at playoff hockey before throwing them into the fire.

2.) 19 May 2021 14:32:14
He's a lunatic!

3.) 19 May 2021 18:57:06
Doesn’t make much sense to me for a team that can’t score why would you take out caufield.

4.) 20 May 2021 15:56:05
There’s either 1 of 2 reasons here. Bergevan feels he’s on the hott seat and asked the coach to dress his deadline acquisitions to make him not look bad. ( Staal, Perry ( FA ) and Merell )

Reason 2 would be Staals playoffs experience is deemed more valuable then Kotekneimis play, for Caufield in particular yes he’s a gifted goal scorer but if you’re the habs you know you’re not going to beat them in there own run in gun goal scoring game you want to wear the leafs down and beat them physically so you opt for Perry ( Gallagher takes his top 6 role returning from injury) now merell for Romanov makes no sense to me. It’s a obvious lack of confidence or overconfidence in the Habs vets.



04 May 2021 06:49:49
Obviously it's early , however what does everyone think of Cole Caufield?
As a Habs fan, its nice he has the OT goals, however OT is a gimmick.

What I do like about the kid, he plays a decent 200 foot game, he's not scared!, despite his small stature. and he has a lethal shot, and he seems like a humble kid.( rare for an American hockey player)

I see a potential 40 goal man..


1.) 04 May 2021 13:33:04
He looks alright so far, but you'll have to see how he does with the wear and tear of a full season. It can be hard for a smaller guy to keep up the pace and absorb the pounding of a full season and keep the scoring up. He looks to have the scoring chops though.

2.) 04 May 2021 15:47:39
He’s very skilled could see him being the next Nathen Gerbe.

3.) 04 May 2021 16:49:26
He won’t be no nick robertson that’s for sure.

4.) 04 May 2021 17:24:14
That we can both agree on Habby. Could realistically see Robertson getting on Mathews/ Marner level in a few years.

5.) 04 May 2021 18:05:41
Toronto17. or a sane Leafs fan, is Nick Robertson going to be a superstar? Seems VB (Nylander) seems to think so., jus want to know if the kid knows what he's yapping about.
Can you give me a person you see as a comparable to Robertson?

6.) 04 May 2021 19:35:14
I don’t know about Robertson Sosa. I’ve admitted here many times that I don’t really know much about players until they hit the nhl. I just don’t have time to follow everything. From what I’ve seen of Robertson, I think vbb’s is exaggerating, like usual. Maybe top 6 but he doesn’t look like anything spectacular. I forgot about your disdain for American players Sosa, lol. Maybe Caufield will help you respect Matthews. For a star player, Matthews takes hits all game and just keeps playing his game. Unlike, another guy that complains to the refs every time he’s hit.

7.) 04 May 2021 20:37:27
He is ok! I think Petry made him look good, he is better then Nick Robertson and the entire Jets roster right now!

8.) 04 May 2021 21:07:54
Ya its painful Toronto17, having to cheer for Americans lol. But I guess the times are changing
And Nope once Matthews is in Arizona, maybe ill respect him more lol, as long as he wears that horrible Blue and White Jersey, he's enemy number 1 lol. He has made it that ill cheer for Bruins over the Leafs. , and cheering for Bruins may make me burn in hell lol that's how much I don't like him hahah.

All in all, he's a Leaf. i'm a Habs fan . So its my duty to not like him lol.

9.) 04 May 2021 22:06:21
Nick Robertson is something like Brendan Gallagher but with a scoring touch close to on par with Caufields he will never put up the points of Marner or Mathews but like Gallagher he puts his heart and sole into every shift. He is small but physical. I’d like to say his very top end potential is Brad Marchand but without the pestiness. He will quickly be an impact player for the leafs.

I think getting Debrusk would be a good trade for Edmonton. he's a good player who had an off year. he could use a change, and playing next to McDavid or Drais could see him bring his game to next level.

I agree that trading those 2 more than likely won't happen.
I honestly don't know what the answer is in Toronto.
