Looks good

Juuso Valimaki has 7 points in 7 games, and is the leading scorer for his team. llves gave him the golden helmet. Man he’s going to be so good.

Leafs should dump Kerfoot somewhere for a pick and sign Corey Perry.

Hyman - Matthews - Nylander
Mikheyev - Tavares - Marner
Robertson - Thornton - Perry
Vesey - Spezza - Simmonds

Rielly - Brodie
Muzzin - Holl
Lehtonen - Dermott

Would be a solid group, and a lot of veteran presence. The defence still looks a little shaky though, hopefully they can add another veteran Top 4 Defensemen for cheap or something. Solid team

Agree1 Disagree2

21 Oct 2020 12:27:07
Perry is ok but how many old men can one team have? I like the leadership they brought in, it definitely makes them tougher to play against. I would say trade Dermott and or Kerfoot for a cheaper, solid 4-6 D man. I like your lines but Bogosian was brought in to play. Sandin is more than ready IMO with a good defensive partner. I would like to see Joey Anderson on the 4th line too from what I read about him, from NJ fans. They still need to shed salary before the season starts but I’m ok if they don’t bring in anyone else. Their line up is strong enough to be in a playoff position, make a move at the deadline if needed.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Oct 2020 14:54:00
Corey Perry looked really good in the playoffs I would like him but Joe, Simmonds and Spezza is 3/ 6 slow players. I would’ve took Perry over Simmonds.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Oct 2020 16:34:06
I agree. I liked the idea of Corey Perry because he’s a pest and goes to dirty areas like we need. But I don’t want to go from one extreme to the other: From inexperienced soft bottom 6 to 4-5 old guys that are all question marks as to when their game completely falls off.

I would have taken Perry if Thornton Or simmonds didn’t come. Don’t need all though.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Oct 2020 17:20:51
Sounds like all you care about is stacking the team with known names. There are far more efficient and better players who do what Perry does at the same price that would make much more sense but don’t carry the weight of his name so I guess nuts to them eh? 🙄.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Oct 2020 20:01:20
Please don’t think I’m expecting much from the guy but there’s a good article on twitter about Joey Anderson. Devils fans compared him to Hyman, I’ll take that instead of another old man.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Oct 2020 00:59:49
Joey Anderson/Zach Hyman comparison is actually a pretty accurate comparison. Just a less skilled version of Hyman. Any team would love to have a player like Hyman. I know I would :/

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Oct 2020 21:02:27
Me too casual. I know I could probably do some research but could someone please tell me who the leafs might lose to Seattle?

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Oct 2020 18:09:03
I don’t know enough about the Leafs but I’m thinking they lose one of Liljgren or Hyman if he gets extended. If Hyman gets extended I’m sure they’ll protect him and go the 7 and 3 method, losing Liljgren. But If they go 8 skaters to protect 4 D then it could be Hyman, Dermott or maybe Brodie.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Oct 2020 20:21:14
Thanks Ebs. I’d be ok losing Dermott because of the depth at LD.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Oct 2020 00:08:04
Who could leafs trade Keroot for for a defensive 3C? (Coleman type)

Agree0 Disagree2

19 Oct 2020 12:43:19
Brandon Sutter.

Agree0 Disagree3

20 Oct 2020 13:22:11
Derek Ryan

Agree0 Disagree1

16 Oct 2020 21:37:58
I love Joe Thorton but they better put some speed around the old men

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Oct 2020 22:16:43
Joe, Spezza and Simmonds, the retirement line. Their claim to fame is they can out skate the Zamboni.

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Oct 2020 22:45:33
They should bring back Marleau now. Spezza, Thornton, Marleau. Love the signing

Agree1 Disagree1

16 Oct 2020 22:50:50
It’s a better team than last year IMO. More heart anyways.

Agree1 Disagree2

16 Oct 2020 01:01:09
Now that it’s been reported that Laine and his agent have asked for a trade, can we start speculating again?

I never thought he would start next season as a Jet. I wondered why they did. They were talking to teams about him and then stopped. At that time I don’t believe it was known he wanted out.

Having a player ask out usually hurts A GMs negotiations and leverage but probably won’t affect his this much because how many teams will be calling. Philly, CBJ, Minny and FLA would be my guesses.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Oct 2020 12:04:28
Boston is another team I’d keep an eye on.

Agree1 Disagree1

16 Oct 2020 13:19:21
The Jet aren't going to trade Laine anytime soon.

Agree0 Disagree6

16 Oct 2020 14:04:58
Laine is a great player but he seems to be selfish IMO. Should Wheeler, a PPG player for 10 years be demoted because the new guy wants to be #1? Laine is a #1 RW on most teams, but a team player would do what the coach asks of them. Once Wheeler starts to decline, Laine would get his chance. Winnipeg could get a good top 6 winger to replace him and a top 4 defenseman for Laine. Maybe it is time to part ways?

Agree2 Disagree3

16 Oct 2020 16:59:42
Maybe Laine to Columbus for Werenski?
However he'd drive Torts absolutely bonkers.
But Domi passing to Laine, could really be deadly.
Jets would get a really good Dman. 🤷‍♂️. I know the 2 Jets fans in here will hate this., I wouldn't want to lose Laine either.

Agree1 Disagree2

16 Oct 2020 19:20:49
Imagine Laine with Torts lol. Not going to happen.

Agree3 Disagree1

16 Oct 2020 20:00:01
Probably not Nylander. but it would make for some great Torts press conferences!

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Oct 2020 21:37:55
The only thing going against Werenski is that he is LD, which isn't as big a long term need as RD.

Agree0 Disagree3

16 Oct 2020 19:34:15
I feel like Laine is a liability. not just defensively, but not knowing his next contract and having the flat cap situation (which was not anticipated when he did the bridge deal after his bad season), you really don't know what he will demand. If they could get someone, not equal, but a really defenseman and a prospect to help backfill needs or high picks, they should do it.
I think Werenski is too much though, or the jets would add.

Agree3 Disagree1

19 Oct 2020 22:36:10
Yeah Laine with Torts lol

I was wondering about Domi even going there for that same reason. He didn’t like how Julien treated him? You think Torts is going to be easier on his stupidity? Nope.

Agree1 Disagree1

15 Oct 2020 20:54:10
Hey Colt...can you tell me anything about Edmundson? what's your opinion of him? Anyone else that knows much about him, feel free to let me know.. I don't know much at all about him.

Agree0 Disagree1

15 Oct 2020 21:27:32
Defense first guy with decent shutdown ability. Decent skater for his size and physical. Top notch penalty killer which should take some of the burden off of Weber. ideally he’s a very good 3rd pairing guy on a top team.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2020 22:39:30
Thanks Habby. Who do you see him playing with?

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Oct 2020 02:08:31
I see him starting with petry depending on how things go and like if Romanov is the real deal or not Or If Juulsen comes back and looks as good as he did before he got injured he may stay with petry, but a 3rd pair of A healthy Juulsen and Edmundson would be pretty good. For some reason I feel if Romanov makes the lineup and looks decent they may stick him with Weber so if that happens we might see

Petry/ Chiarot
Weber/ Romanov
Juulsen/ Edmundson
And as of now kulak mete and fleury battling for playing time I think they will probably shop kulak though.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Oct 2020 02:11:13
Edmondson was a surprise guy. He went from bottom pairing to top pairing. Has a good shot but weak offensive mind. Very physical and good defensively. Then in his last year with blues he was very inconsistent. He if gets his mojo back you have a good top4 lhd who will punish the other team. He needs a twd or puck moving dman with him to really up his game. Iliked him.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Oct 2020 16:16:46
When the trade happened. I read a lot of hurricanes fans saying they were glad to see him go. Lol. Hopefully we aren’t in the same position a year from now.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Oct 2020 16:52:01
Like I said he needs a good transition guy to help him clear the zone. But he will punish the other team down low.

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Oct 2020 17:06:01
Thanks guys. on paper I really like the look/ sounds of the back end.
I think Romanov may end up being the odd man out, due to the fact he doesn't need to clear waivers. so maybe he has to play AHL for season?

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Oct 2020 00:42:56
I think if he doesn’t make the team he goes back to Russia. he will be given every opportunity to make the team.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Oct 2020 04:10:58
Bergevin has spoken very highly of Romanov in the past. He’s going to get every chance he can dream of to Make that opening night roster lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Oct 2020 16:22:23
Well I hope he makes it then., Personally I haven't been this excited about a prospect in years for the Habs.

Agree0 Disagree0

I think Carolina wins the metro or atleast comes second. They’re to low for me.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2020 14:55:10
They did nothing to fix their goaltending this offseason, or at least so far. That is why I have them a little lower. I mean you could put them ahead of Pittsburgh and maybe the Rangers too, but I don’t think they finish ahead of Philly or Washington without addressing their goaltending first.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2020 17:43:25
I know i'm going to sound like a homer here, but I like what Habs have done, I think Jake Allen being able to play as many as say 30 games will be a huge help for Habs. Obviously there are still some? 's. will rhe new guys fit in.? Can Suzuki and KK keep progressing. what Droiun will Habs see., the super skilled wonger or the sometimes disinterested player that drives ya nuts.
Not saying they are better than the obvious 3, Bolts, Leafs and Briuns. However I think they will push those teams. I know they won't get the luxury of a 24 team playoff, but I do believe they will get in. I hope anyway.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2020 18:51:29
Sosa I like the Habs moves so far as well. I think they’re in the mix, I’m not sold on Columbus tbh but I’d have a hard time saying any of the top 11 teams in the East wouldn’t make the playoffs, it’ll be a fight for those wildcard spots.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Oct 2020 00:07:44
I hate to say it but I believe that you ranked the Jets too high. If Maurice doesn't implement a defensive system, any defensive system, the Jets are in trouble as Helly can only steal so many games.
