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.

Tampa will win the cup... to me they are the best team since the Wings lil dynasty.. they have everything!.. from Vasi, to Hedman to Point and Kucherov.. Cireli being a Guy Carboneau type..and.. Stamkos isn't even playing..
I know last year they were one of the best reg season teams in NHL history, but lost.. Wings did as well in there big points season in 90s.. Different now with cap crap , but this team could win a few in next 5 years( ill say 3)

I made my own top 5 on another post.... need to put Hedman on it... he's a beast


1.) 08 Sep 2020 06:59:04
Skill wise from top to bottom right now they are the best. Not sure about winning more after this year though they are going to lose a couple big pieces this off season. They are in cap hell.

2.) 08 Sep 2020 10:05:12
Yah they definitely won’t be as good next year but the good thing is they’ll still retain their stars. Just going to be 2010 Chicago style shakeup. Killhorn is gone, atleast 1 of Johnsson/ Gourd/ Palat is gone and imo 1 of Cirelli/ Sergachev/ Cenerak. Killhorn will be a big loss yet manageable.

3.) 09 Sep 2020 06:53:51
It's literally been every summer for like 4+ years now that everyone claimed TB is in inescapeable cap trouble and yet pretty much every year they iced a better or at least even team compared to the year before. We have smart management. You see what we're doing without Stamkos right now, so y'all really think TB will suddenly suck because Killorn and maybe Johnson or so are no longer on the team? (Both have been fairly unnoticeable during this years playoffs btw) .

4.) 09 Sep 2020 12:53:26
This is the first year I’ve said they were in cap hell. I don’t think Killorn or Johnson would make much difference at all actually. But if they are lucky enough to move one of them. Killorn possibly I think they still lose Sergachev or Cirelli at the very least.

5.) 09 Sep 2020 15:17:16
Tampa also has the lack of tax that gets players signed lower i think. For Kuch to sign below 10 after the season he had was pretty amazing.

6.) 09 Sep 2020 16:14:09
They might be able to sign Cirelli to a like 3-4M bridge deal. I don’t think they can afford to lose Sergachev so might have to trade cap somewhere else. Also seen like 3M of dead cap coming off for next season as well.

7.) 12 Sep 2020 22:47:17
@Habby: this just tells me that you don't follow TB a lot. which is alright, but don't make weird claims then. TB would sweeten the pot for someone to take Johnson with a prospect or pick (imo, no sweetener necessary, but just saying) before they'd trade Cirelli or Sergachev. Believe me, I'm willing to bet a lot that both will be starting next season in TBL gear.

8.) 13 Sep 2020 07:04:05
Oh I’m sure they would attempt that first. i just don’t see anyone taking Johnson off their hands without their being a huge prize attached. also the 5 mil cap saved if they are lucky enough to pawn Johnson off on someone doesn’t come close to the amount needed to sign Sergachev and Cirelli not to mention Cernak as well and at least one more dman.

9.) 13 Sep 2020 07:09:32
Also I’m not saying they can't sweeten the pot with something but what would you suggest? no 1st round pick and their top prospect is Foote who I think they are going to need in their top six this season.



03 Sep 2020 01:03:21
Is Nathan MacKinnon the best player in the game , not named Connor McDavid.
I think he's surpassed Crosby, obviously at the same age, Crosby was better.. but wow is MacKinnon a beast..
There are so many good players in the game, i'm trying to think of a top 5 but that is hard..


Maybe?? I don't even have Hedman Eichel, Josi, Heiskenan( will be there one day) Mathews, ect..

Deffenitley a lot of high end talent in the game..nice to see.
Who are your guys top 5??
I know mine is not perfect and missing someone, be interested to see what you guys think, whos yours, or even top 10??


1.) 03 Sep 2020 13:57:28
Mackinnon over McDavid 20 days a week if you include contacts.

2.) 03 Sep 2020 15:41:30
I’m pretty sure McDavid owns MacKinnon head to head. I don’t think Draisaitl is a top 5 player. Also Point has looked better than Kucherov these playoffs so not sure about him. Maybe Kane should still be considered?

3.) 04 Sep 2020 03:09:44
It's really tough to disprove Draisaitl being a top 5 player because of the points he produces but he really isn't a top 5 player when you watch him play.

4.) 05 Sep 2020 01:59:34
I get that TB94, but, who would you replace him with?

5.) 05 Sep 2020 08:02:27
Truthfully, I think it should be Panarin. Draisaitl is an excellent player, top 10 for sure. But he can't make Ryan Strome look like a first line centre like Panarin did.

6.) 05 Sep 2020 13:54:59

7.) 05 Sep 2020 16:30:52
I could see Panarin. However I'm still not sure, jus shows how good the talent is in the game.
As for Kane VB, i don't have him in mine. possibly top 10. but i'm no expert.

8.) 05 Sep 2020 22:49:59
It's really tough to say that a player that has 110 points in 71 games isn't a top 5 player. It's between him and Crosby for me. On one hand, Draisaitl absolutely dominates Crosby on offence and goals while on the other, while Draisaitl struggles on defence a lot, Crosby does well in his own zone and controlling the game.

9.) 06 Sep 2020 02:15:52
Crosby as soon as he steps on the ice makes the opposition terrified. I don’t even think McDavid does that. Crosby has the pedigree and playoff experience over drais.

10.) 06 Sep 2020 08:13:56

no order, but easily the top 5.

11.) 06 Sep 2020 15:57:23
How is Kucherov over Kane? Kane has no one to play with and yet consistently is in the top 10 in scoring he is easily the best winger in the NHL if he were on Tampa OMG 140
Points would be a joke for him.

12.) 06 Sep 2020 17:11:46
Draisaitl isn’t easily in the top 5 for me. Top 5, maybe top 3 offensively. But the whole package he isn’t even top 10 for me. And McDavid 100% has the other team worried when he’s on the ice VB.

13.) 08 Sep 2020 01:29:52
VB please for god's sakes stop your stupid, aggressively and porposely overdone takes to get attention. everyone is annoyed by it.

Kane played with a random dude named Panarin until like 2 years ago and with Toews and other good players on their cup winning teams for years. When has Kane scored 128 in a season?

14.) 08 Sep 2020 01:31:51
Kucherov has literally outscored Kane in 4 straight years. 4 straight.

15.) 08 Sep 2020 10:07:06
Lol of course he out scored Kane because Tampa is a dynasty. The Syracuse Crunch would beat the Blackhawks without Kane.

16.) 09 Sep 2020 06:57:02
See. That's LITERALLY what I meant. Stupid, purposely overdone takes to get attention. I won't even comment on the substance of this. Maybe you'll stop one day if people stop giving you the attention you grave for your childish claims. Get a life, VB.

17.) 18 Sep 2020 23:47:20
just wow


fight me.



25 Aug 2020 20:59:16
Really suprised by the Stars dominating the Avalanche.., also VERY suprised by how the Islanders man handled the Flyers. I have deffinetley under estimated both teams.
Are you guys suprised??? I probably don't follow league wide as much as many of you do, but I really didn't think either Dallas or Islanders were as good as they are.


1.) 26 Aug 2020 05:28:04
I’m with you man.

2.) 26 Aug 2020 16:51:29
Dalas was surprising for sure! NYI i had pretty good hopes for.

3.) 27 Aug 2020 22:42:14
Of course they both lose after I post this 🤣.



23 Aug 2020 22:18:08
Revisiting the Tavares , Hedman draft... who goes 1st, knowing what we know today.. i think its super close.... i don't know.. but I'm going to say Hedman by an inch.. .. tomorrow I may say Tavares.. its that close.


1.) 24 Aug 2020 05:37:18
I think it comes down to positional lead but I think we can all agree that Hedman is a top 5 dman and Tavares isn’t a top 5 centre. ( Mackinnon, McDavid, Crosby, Mathews and Drais )

2.) 24 Aug 2020 09:34:42
I agree VB, I haven't seen an undisputed number 1 D in awhile. when he was in Nashville, ( Not MTL) for me it was Weber, now I think its Hedman. so . i have to say Hedman would be my choice as number 1. . like I said. tomorrow may be Tavares. But a great 1 2

So. to break away from this. what draft had the best 1 2.
Ovi Malkin?
Lafleur Dionne
McDavid Eichel
Modano Linden
Lemuiex Muller
Turgeon Shanahan

For me. Well Mario a draft with Lemuiex is # 1 as he is head and shoulders above anyone else in the game not named Gretzky or Orr. However as much as I liked Muller with the Canadiens, he was an inferior number 2 to many .
But in all fairness to the mortal players. the Ovi Malkin, Lafleur Dionne are the best 1 2 drafts.

3.) 24 Aug 2020 16:07:55
Truthfully, I think it's Hedman and I don't believe it's really that close.

Defencemen like Hedman are generational. A 6'6 230lb #1 defenceman who also consistently puts up 50-60 points never come around.

Centres like JT can be found in every almost every draft. Tavares has lots of name value from the old NHL where putting up 70-80 points meant more then than it does today. For example, you have players like JT Miller having seasons like Tavares.

4.) 24 Aug 2020 16:08:49
Hedman, very clearly.

5.) 25 Aug 2020 09:08:15
Ehh I’d take Slavin over Hedman. But that’s it. No player can shut down a line better then Slavin.

6.) 26 Aug 2020 01:42:06
Slavin is a good defenceman but he's no Victor Hedman lol .

7.) 26 Aug 2020 14:20:08
Even if Slavin was slightly better than Hedman at shutting down lines (debatable), that's not everything there is to being a great D. Hedman is a couple tiers above Slavin offensively and therefore definitely the better overall defenseman. And I really like Slavin.



21 Aug 2020 02:12:02
Can someone tell me why the players and coaches don't wear masks, however the trainers all do? Are they not in the bubble permanently?

Not a chance. Habs are keeping Price till his contract ends, and will be happy to do so. he's still the best. and probably will be at 38.
