Does anyone else think that Neal Pionk is a very underrated defensemen

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Apr 2020 14:33:07
He has definitely been much better than Ranger fans led us to believe. He's a good puck mover and skater, he could just use a bigger shot for the PP.

Agree0 Disagree0

I never ( and still really dont) knew much about him. However from what I have seen and read, looks like a really solid top 4 guy. and doesn't look like much of a drop of from Trouba at all. Glad to see the Jets were able to get 1 good dman after all they lost last offseason. don't think I ever remember a team getting there D core depleted so hard in one off season.

When the Jets made the Trouba/ Pionk trade I thought the Jets got nothing for Trouba. As the season continued Pionk showed he was a lot better than most people, other than Chevy, expected. By the end of the season Pionk had surpassed Trouba in most categories teams rate d-men on. The bonus was Heinola whom the Jets drafted with the #1 pick they also received in the trade. In 8 games with the Jets he had 5 points and was third in icetime before he was wisely sent back to Finland to get more experience and bigger. Pionk is a solid 2/ 3 d-man that most teams would love to have.

Why are people proposing the leafs trade Mathews and/or Marners they're the leafs superstars while the leafs are in a good position. There is 3 reasons to trade a superstar. 1. Asks for a trade 2. Full rebuild 3. The least likely. hockey trade 1 for 1

There is literally no deal that would help out the leafs by trading Mathews or Marner. Sure they struggled yet still hold onto a playoff spot and draw fans to the games. Sadly star players draw more revenue to owners then wins. That's why the owner of the penguins refused to allow malkin to be traded.

Agree0 Disagree5

Will the cap decrease this season due to lost revenue I've heard that there is speculation of a large drop in cap space with complimace buyouts being given. It only makes sense that the cap will decrease.

Agree0 Disagree5

04 Apr 2020 05:17:17
I think they should keep it at the rate it is atm. its going to be such a mess to make it lower. It's hard enough for GMS to navigate around the cap as it is, for it to decrease will be a nightmare. But I don't know what the proper thing is. This isn't anyone's fault, so hopefully both Owners and NHLPA can come up with some sort of fair understanding that works for everyone. how that happens. I dunno.
But Its kinda hard to sit here and justify athletes and owners making millions or losing millions, when the average person is worried about putting food on the table next week.

How are all you guys doing? Hope your all healthy and doing well.

Easy answer. No.

I've been off this site ever since Hockey got put on hold but I'm impressed that "St.LouisFan" has made such a big name for himself as a troll poster.

I know actual Blues fans have better ideas than what I've read on here but this one was too good not to bring up:

March 6th he stated that Pietrangelo is untouchable when he was denying that Thomas was untouchable. 5 days later he posted a trade throwing Pietro in WITH Thomas for Gudas and Vrana...

This is the difference between having a bias towards your favorite team vs. not knowing what the F you're talking about.

Agree5 Disagree0

03 Apr 2020 01:59:51
No. It's the difference in dealing with a true troll like redwing1 and posting something to get him going versus what you actually think. If you had been on site to see the whole line of discussion you would have known that.

Where has he been lately anyway? Must be hiding under a bridge.

Agree0 Disagree4

03 Apr 2020 02:01:12
I mean, coming from a guy that thinks Toronto has 20 million in cap space next year, your comments don't mean much. Who is the real troll here?

Agree0 Disagree3

03 Apr 2020 22:56:59
You and Redwing are probably the same guy.

Agree1 Disagree0

04 Apr 2020 07:35:53
I don’t think so sosa he’s obviously bias but not delusional. Petro for Norris was outlandish aside from that he has solid insight.

Agree0 Disagree1

23 Mar 2020 14:31:35
If the season is over, who are some of your guys' award winners and why?

Vezina
Hart
Calder
Norris
Jack Adams

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Mar 2020 22:33:05
Mine is

Vezina-Rask
Hart-Draisaitl (but should be Panarin)
Calder: Q. Hughes
Norris: Carlson
Adams: D. Tippett.

Agree0 Disagree2

24 Mar 2020 07:39:29
Hellebuyck
Draisaitl
Hughes
Josi
Jack Adams no idea, so I'll go with Cirelli for Selke ;)

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Mar 2020 16:20:48
@The_triplets
Yeah, Josi is a good one. I think I saw a stat that showed he has the most offensive zone entires in the entire league. (Yes including forwards)

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Mar 2020 05:44:10
Good point. And yeah, I loev Josi in general. He's also just 10 points behind Carlson (2nd in D scoring) by now. Gap was much larger to start the year, but I feel he makes up those 10 pts with his defensive play and play driving easily.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Mar 2020 19:12:08
Panirans +- is astonishing it show that it really isn’t a team stat. For that reason I’d give him my vote over drais. 1. Paniran 2.Drais 3. Mackinnon.

Agree0 Disagree5

26 Mar 2020 04:14:08
I agree with The Triplets 1000%

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Mar 2020 09:09:26
Norris: Petrol
Hart: MacKinnon
Calder: Makar
Vezina: Hellybuck
Selke: Bergeron
Adams: Keefe.

Agree0 Disagree7

29 Mar 2020 07:11:45
Petro? Keefe? Srsly?
Also, Bergeron is just a simple, lazy, generic pick smh.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Mar 2020 16:23:51
Vezina- Hellebuyck he’s the main reason why jets are still in the playoff hunt, apart from him the team hasn’t been great.
Norris- josi, like posted before josi has been consistent point producer he’s not far behind Carlson for points and is better than Carlson defensively on a weaker team
Calder- I think Hughes will win but I think Makar is more deserving. If it wasn’t for injuries this wouldn’t even be a debate, Makar was running away with it
Selke- Barkov. Bergeron isn’t the player he used to be, like said earlier he’s the lazy choice. Barkov is the new Bergeron and is one of the reasons panthers are in the hunt.
Hart- For me it’s either Panarin or mackinnon. The hart is for the player most valuable to his team. If oilers didn’t have draisatl they’d still have mcdavid and vise versa, if the rangers didn’t have parnarin they wouldn’t be anywhere near as decent as they are, he’s turned a bottom 6 center into a 60-70 Point top 6 center. Although the aves are s good team without mackinnon they’re not a top team without him.

Agree1 Disagree1

30 Mar 2020 07:07:22
Yes Petrol. He is a candidate this year. He will probably come 3rd but it's not like he is a long shot. And Keefe did a very good job on Leafs. At least I named someone. Not even mentioning someone is a copy out and lazy choice.

Agree0 Disagree2

30 Mar 2020 07:18:33
How figure Bergeron isn't the same he used to be? He had over 30 goals and almost a point a game player and +23. He might be a lazy choice but only because he makes it so easy to choose him.

Agree0 Disagree1

30 Mar 2020 17:19:21
Bergeron isn’t the guy that drives his line anymore, he plays with pasta and Marchand. those 2 make him look better. This is not s knock on Bergeron, he’s just getting older. Barkov carries his Team, not just his line. If Barkov isn’t there huberdeau probably doesn’t put up the same numbers and the panthers aren’t where they are, granted they should be better but can’t get consistent goaltending. Point is Bergeron is still good but not Barkov good.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Mar 2020 18:56:20
Look up what the Selke trophy is awarded for. We aren't talking about the Hart or Ted Lindsay. We are talking Selke.

Agree0 Disagree2

30 Mar 2020 20:41:41
I agree with Mertle 100% I’m assuming by bottom 6 centre he is referring to Strome as he stepped up big time while Zibby was injured but if you are talking about Zibby he is a stud. One of the most underrated players in the league. He was the go to guy since being traded to the rangers ( before Paniran. )

Agree0 Disagree1

30 Mar 2020 21:43:13
I was referring to Strome VB. Louis Fan, I don’t know why you’re arguing with me, it’s purely my opinion that I think Barkov is the better two way player than Bergeron, Triplets mentioned Cierelli who is also a great defensive forward, you could put couturier in there too. point is there’s not a wrong answer there’s just opinion. My opinion is is that Bergeron isn’t the best defensive forward anymore, still good, just not the best. Don’t just say Bergeron because he’s been in the voting for the award the last 15 years.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Mar 2020 12:03:46
With the 2020 NHL season and playoff now cancelled, do you guys think next season might be cancelled as well?

Agree0 Disagree1

31 Mar 2020 12:04:18
Article: Why Anthony Cirelli should win the Selke Trophy

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Mar 2020 18:26:36
Magic Marc? WTH are you talking about.? When was it cancelled?

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Mar 2020 18:37:03
What are Oiler fans early thoughts on Athanasiou?

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Mar 2020 21:19:09
He has more to offer than he has so far. I like that he is an RFA so we can potentially see how he’ll do with a true fresh start next season because I think he can get back to 20isj goals per season but to this point he’s been mediocre.

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Mar 2020 23:31:53
I have optimism since Holland has seen a lot of him. But from what I’ve seen he’s been a very perimeter player and hasn’t created a lot.

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Mar 2020 15:08:19
At best, I think he’s a 20 goal 40-50 point forward imo.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Mar 2020 09:11:26
A 50 point player is a top line player on some teams in the league. Not the good ones. But 50 points would have led scoring last year on a few teams.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Mar 2020 17:28:22
Welp there goes the season

Agree0 Disagree6

12 Mar 2020 18:02:31
Not sure how they are going to end it. hopefully they get everything cleared up soon.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Mar 2020 15:53:01
According to Friedman if Mathews reached RFA status last year the Coyotes intended on offering him an 7 year 15 mil contract and the league knew this. i'm thankful for his contract after hearing this information.

Agree1 Disagree7

12 Mar 2020 17:42:54
Did he say a number? From what I’ve seen he just said he would’ve been offer sheeted.

Agree1 Disagree2

12 Mar 2020 18:40:10
Coyotes are a low budget team and contracts can only be a certain percentage of a teams budget. That sounds too high for the league to allow, off the top of my head. Vb making junk up again?

Agree3 Disagree3

13 Mar 2020 02:13:06
No go look at the quote he didn’t say 15 million he said league max which I believe is around 15 million I think it’s actually higher but either way it’s words of one of the most credible analysts in the hockey world.

Agree2 Disagree3

13 Mar 2020 06:55:41
Lmao, this doesn't make his contract better.

Agree2 Disagree3

14 Mar 2020 13:05:02
his contract is bad. but at least he's near the top of the league and scoring and is no longer over-hyped, right triplets?

Agree1 Disagree2

15 Mar 2020 07:16:06
Being very good doesn't automatically rule out over-hyped, so idk what your point is.
If he's top 10 in scoring, yet treated like he's on McDavid - or an all time goat level. yes, still overhyped.

Agree3 Disagree0

15 Mar 2020 11:55:06
Lmao. You tell yourself whatever you need to. Classic.
I also heard he only signed a 5 year deal to be a UFA sooner so if it’s not looking like Leafs will win a Cup he can go play in his hometown sooner.
Should have locked your superstars up for max 8 years like some idiot Chiarelli and other GMs did 🤷‍♂️.

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Mar 2020 18:49:25
hes no mcdavid, but he's proving to be the goal scorer he was projected to be, living up to the "over hype" at least statistically.

Agree0 Disagree3

16 Mar 2020 14:54:12
Superstars like Sekera, Poliout, Yakapov and Puljujarvi?

Agree0 Disagree1
