Pionk was a horse for the Jets tonight. Might have been a steal by the Jets….

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Mar 2020 12:35:27
Yeah, he has actually been much, much better than Ranger fans lead us to believe. Not as big or physical as Trouba but a better puck mover definitely.

12 Mar 2020 15:12:57
When the Jets traded Trouba for Pionk and #1 pick I believed that the Jets lost the trade big time. However with the great play of Pionk, his age, reasonable contract and value to the team he has shown he alone was worth the trade for Trouba. Also the draft pick turned into Heinola who looks to be a keeper having played the 1st 8 games of the season where he recorded 5 points and averaged over 18 minutes per game. Only his physical size and the Jets history of keeping draft picks developing in the minors until they are over-ready stopped him from playing the entire season on the Jets. This trade set up the Jets backend nicely for the future.

Any of you guys notice how poor Draisaitl is defensively?
I love the guy, and I'm an Oilers fan but he is been pretty terrible lately.

Agree1 Disagree3

12 Mar 2020 11:12:46
I haven’t seen a lot of Oilers games lately due to work but Drai is usually good. He was in good standing for the Selke til about mid-Dec and then the whole team went a bit wonky and he doesn’t seem to have returned to his better self.
So maybe “lately” he’s sucky at defence but as a whole I’d say he’s pretty good.

12 Mar 2020 14:51:13
He tries for offence every single play and never makes the simple play. I think he’s capable of being a solid defensive player but he’s been giving the puck away way to often and rarely has the battle level to get pucks back. Not sure why Tippet hasn’t cracked down on it. It’s been going on for a while now IMO.
RNH has found that middle ground where he’s still one of the best defensive forwards in the league but is sill putting up points.

13 Mar 2020 02:15:13
Let’s keep in Mind Paniran is +32 when talking about the Hart trophy where as Drais is -5.

13 Mar 2020 06:56:57
Very good point, VB. IMO, we should hand out the Hart simply to the guy with the best plus minus since that's such a useful and great stat.

14 Mar 2020 18:24:36
Well I think it’s pretty impressive that he has a much higher +- on a much worse team while being top 5 in scoring.

12 Mar 2020 00:50:33
Burke through out the idea of 8 team playoffs instead of 16. It would allow them to push back playoffs. Thoughts? Do you think the NHL will cancel playoffs? Will the cap still go up considering lost revenue?

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Mar 2020 11:17:51
Doesn’t matter what they do, these playoffs will be with an asterisk no matter what if they cancel the rest of the regular season. And I say that knowing the Oilers are in the playoffs. It would be just that Oilers-esque to win the Cup in an asterisked season. Haha. Yet if the leafs won I’m sure the parade would go on as planned in spite of coronavirus and it would be called the greatest playoffs in sports history 😂

In any case this stupid virus is a bummer and hopefully it’s contained soon. Sports are the least of the worries these days.

12 Mar 2020 14:54:26
Yeah there really is no good solution I just want to see the Oilers in the playoffs considering it’s been twice in 15 years! Lol.

11 Mar 2020 04:33:30
Should Habs extend Tatar and Petry??

I would like to see both back in 2 years... however, not at 8 year deals.
So.. I'd offer both 4 year deals.. doubt either take it. But would be nice to have em

Tatar 4 at 6.0
Petry 4 at 6.5.. i think it's fair.

Also.the 4 years is the window I believe Price can still be a number one goalie...and Weber can be a top 4 effective dman

Agree0 Disagree1

11 Mar 2020 12:37:35
I think the Habs should do it, plus get Kovalchuk back as well. I think they would all want 6 year deals though and for more than what you're offering.

11 Mar 2020 15:53:35
6 years for Kovy? No way man.

12 Mar 2020 02:04:28
I would see what’s out there in trade options more so for Tatar then Petry. But if there is a good deal to be made at the draft I’d go for it.

11 Mar 2020 01:47:44
Watching the Habs tribute Henri Richard.. made me think. Who are the best brothers to play in NHL?

Some will say Sedins..Richard's.. Tkachuks could be next ones..Sutters, Hunters.. ect , guys I grew up with were good, Scott and Rob....
I'll go with Maurice and Henri Richard... ( sorry Cranny boys)

Agree0 Disagree2

11 Mar 2020 15:52:59
Stastney boys.

11 Mar 2020 18:33:54
The Gretzkys.

10 Mar 2020 20:36:51
Since Montreal last one the cup in 93,, what has been the best Canadian Franchise??? Habs have been mediocre won a couple division titles but.. who cares.Canucks and Sens have been season powerhouses,but couldn't seal the deal.Leafs have had some fun runs, Flames and Oilers each had a memorable playoff run, but not much else??
I don't know the stats or anything, or who has most playoff wins ect..

I'm leaning towards Canucks..but kinda by default.. but it is kinda sad now that I think about it. When I grew up, it was Edmonton, Calgary and Montreal.. usually they won.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Mar 2020 22:12:20
It might surprise you to know how close the Habs are still to the top spot even with how bad they have been.

11 Mar 2020 04:28:59
I don't know who it is, but I know who it ain't. And that would be Toronto. Leafs suck and have sucked for a very long time They didn't even make the playoffs for a ten year stretch. And even now that they are squeeking in, they lose first round in humiliating fashion. They just aren't good. Not good enough. Just plain not good period.

11 Mar 2020 13:44:30
I agree Habby that they are close. Although they have had some rough years. they haven't had any seasons in the 60 point range. like all the other Canadian teams have at some point during this time.

14 Mar 2020 18:56:10
Humiliating fashion? The leafs went to game 7 with the Bruins 3x and the capitals once.

10 Mar 2020 01:40:56
Is Saku Koivu a Hall of Fane candidate?

Agree0 Disagree3

10 Mar 2020 08:51:52
Due to injuries I would say no.

10 Mar 2020 17:25:48
As Habby said. his injuries and illness hold him out. Although he had a solid career, it was not spectacular.

Maybe more of a Habs fans question? Does his #11 belong in the rafters? I will also say no to this.

11 Mar 2020 04:31:46
He didn't win any cups or hardware that I know of. I didn't check so I could be wrong. But I don't think so. No. He is not good enough to get in HHOF. 832 points in over 1100 games doesn't even get you more than a mention as possible candidate. Like right here for instance.

10 Mar 2020 01:34:17
Any chance that Jason Pominville becomes a Hall of famer?

-Stanley Cup champion

-Olympique Gold winner

-All Star

-80 point player

Agree0 Disagree4

10 Mar 2020 08:52:14
I don’t think so.

10 Mar 2020 15:27:10
Pominville won Olympic gold?
What year? He’s American is he?

10 Mar 2020 17:28:46
Your not serious are ya? If Theo Fluery or Mats Naslund or Kevin Lowe. ect ect aren't in. then why would Pominville be in? Kovalev isn't in, nor should he be, but he had a better career .

11 Mar 2020 04:35:21
Pomminville never won a Stanley Cup. I'm less sure about the fold but I don't think he won a gold medal either. He never won any major individual awards either. 730 points in over 1000 games played are not HHOF numbers.

11 Mar 2020 18:35:04
Lol no chance he’s a HOF and I like Pominville.
