Montreal shouldn’t match Kotkaniemi’s offer sheet. They don’t have the cap for it and the 1ST, 3RD could be valuable in this strong draft.

Agree8 Disagree3

I definitely would not match. and I like KK…take the picks.

29 Aug 2021 05:16:17
If he signed an offer sheet for one year, he must really want out of Montreal. They might as well just take the picks and let him go. It hurts the center depth though.

29 Aug 2021 15:01:00
Bye KK. I honestly wouldn't want him back. IMO, the $20 signing bonus was an F. U to Bergevin.
Sure. sign the deal , but that signing bonus was disrespectful.

30 Aug 2021 15:37:05
Memarcus I mean why wouldn’t he accept it? He’d be getting paid way more than arbitration would give him.

30 Aug 2021 17:12:58
Casual, just because it is only one year. Sure he gets 6.1 for a year, but if he wanted to stay in Montreal, he would probably end up with more money on a longer term contract.

I think he likely signed the OS with the understanding that this is what they are using to pry him out of Montreal and then they'll work on a fair long term deal that will depend on how he does this year. They couldn't go the Bergevin route and offer a deal that is a no-brainer to match. They had to offer a contract that makes Montreal think as it hurts Montreal both short and long term no matter what.

If he goes on a 1 year deal and stinks (with no indication that thecanes want him long term), he probably costs himself a lot more than 6 mil on a long term deal. The safer bet for him financially with a flat cap is a longer term deal. Less dollars per year, but more dollars overall.

A one year term to me just looks like, get me out of here and then we'll talk about a real long term deal for a fair cost.

I absolutely love Hyman and he will be missed. I like the addition of Ritchie. He puts up decent numbers, the size and intimidation factors are huge. If their goalies can stay healthy, I think they'll be alright. It's going to be a tough division, I'm not expecting much, but I can't wait until it gets started. I'll try and stay positive Nylander, lol

Gonna be an interesting year in that division. Tampa is still the team to beat, however Florida did a lot in offseason to make a push for top 3. not even sure where my Habs fit in, maybe 5th. Leafs will battle for a top 3 spot, however, I can also see them being a Wildcard team.

28 Aug 2021 03:30:37
It’s going to be tough for the habs without Weber. If they make the playoffs, it will be well earned. I said from the beginning of last year that I liked the moves they made. I know as a leaf fan I’m not supposed to like Anderson, but he’s a guy you like when he’s on your team. I hated Tucker before he was a leaf.

28 Aug 2021 15:21:18
I don’t really like the addition of Ritchie but he brings that in front net presence we don’t have. He’s lazy but he’s big. Kase could be good and Kampf will be a big upgrade at 4c If he plays 3C he’ll bring the defensive element. Definitely a worse team then last year but there still a top 10 team in the NHL and once you get in the playoffs anything can happen.

RIP Jimmy Hayes.

Just curious who do you guys take if you're a average middle of the pack franchise in between competing and retooling

Mitch Marner 24 years old 10.9 mil x 4 years or Antemi Paniran 29 years old 11.65 mil x 5 years?

Agree0 Disagree1

23 Aug 2021 04:39:02
Id take Marner, due to his age.

23 Aug 2021 17:27:41
Both good wingers, both with bad contracts. I'd look for a better value winger over either.

24 Aug 2021 19:42:57
BiasJoe won’t even answer the question because it’s a leaf player. Sosa nailed it and it’s obvious. 5 years is a big deal, especially when the younger guy is near the top of the league in point production.

20 Aug 2021 08:33:34
Read that Coyotes are done in their arena after this season???( I believe?.. or is it next season)

Can the NHL just get rid of this team finally.? Re-locate em., I wish Quebec City, but they will wanna keep this franchise West..
What about Houston?? , Kansas City? . Or Milwaukee?

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2021 13:20:04
The NHL should be done there and never should have gone there in the first place, but I highly doubt they move on from Arizona now. Betman will come up with some half assed scheme for the NHL to foot the bill and keep them there.

20 Aug 2021 14:37:07
I really wish they went out to QC. we just added two west teams in Vegas and Seattle.

19 Aug 2021 17:14:12
What are your guys thoughts on the Pacific division? Obviously Vegas is a no brainer to be in the playoffs but after that I think LA has a lot of potential. Especially in the playoffs. I think Vancouver hits 3rd place in the division

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Aug 2021 19:20:25
I'm hoping Edmonton gets in, but LA had improved alot, also with the additions of OEL and Garland are nice., Calgary will also battle . Its an interesting division, maybe not the strongest.,

20 Aug 2021 01:20:40
1. Vegas, 2. Edmonton, 3. Vancouver, 4. Anaheim, 5. Calgary, 6. Seattle, 7. San Jose, 8. Arizona.

20 Aug 2021 01:22:32
Forgot LA, I’d have them before Calgary I think. Is Arizona in the pacific or central?

20 Aug 2021 08:28:07
Ebs. you have Anaheim that high?

20 Aug 2021 15:48:56
Ya I think LA, Anaheim and Calgary will be fighting for a wild card spot. They didn’t change the team much but the young guys will be taking over the team and Gibson in net.

21 Aug 2021 00:33:43

Is my prediction. SJ is too old everywhere, ANA is too young, I’m not feeling Calgary too much unless Markstrom has a bounce back year. I think Vancouver may get in if Demko stands on his head behind that middling dcore, but I think Seattles dcore and goaltending are good enough to snag the third spot, and Edmontons McDraisaitl while Vegas is Vegas.

21 Aug 2021 02:00:09
I'm suprised about how high some have Krakken going. I think they look pretty weak.

22 Aug 2021 01:20:22
Easiest division in the nhl?

24 Aug 2021 15:44:07
Yeah I’d say so. Couple teams could surprise come playoff time though.

18 Aug 2021 14:30:21
After seeing Carey Price in the playoffs,, are Canadian Fans comfortable with him being the starter for team Canada?? If the NHL goes to the Olympics?
If not?? Who else ? Fluery? I personally am comfortable with him being the starter, however , don't like the wear and tear it will cause him down the stretch.

I feel Hockey Canada needs to start developing Goalies better. It seems like the other top tier nations have surpassed Canada , when it comes go Goalies

Agree1 Disagree1

18 Aug 2021 18:25:19
Price and Kuemper/ Fluery as the vets then one of Binnington, Murray, Hart, Blackwood. Definitely not the strongest in net but still a decent group.

19 Aug 2021 13:43:46
I’d sooner see him take that month off.

19 Aug 2021 14:15:37
I'm with you on that Habby, however I also want to see Canada win Gold., so i'm torn.

19 Aug 2021 14:35:04
To be honest. Price has a better chance at winning a gold metal than he does winning the cup next year. I said it last year and I was very wrong. but I don't think Habs make the playoffs this year back in our own division.

19 Aug 2021 17:09:54
Price, Flury and Binnington is who I’d choose. 3 cup winners and 2 gold medalists.

Right now Gibson ( maybe ) and Vais are the only 2 goalies I play over price. Even then Price has been there so I think I take the proven player.

19 Aug 2021 19:21:14
I think ( unfortunately) Turkey your probably right.

26 Aug 2021 05:24:44
Oh ye of little faith.

09 Aug 2021 00:25:31
Casey Cizikas is still a FA. Surprisingly. He makes a perfect 4 line C. Could play 3rd C
Hoping Habs would sign him. Give them more character and hard worker. Good on the PK.
If the Jets have any money left after resigning Pionk and Copp , maybe they should sign him. They need help with PK.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Aug 2021 03:26:19
Id like to have him if the price is right. he'd be a good PK replacement for Danault.

09 Aug 2021 04:19:35
Talk is he’s signing back with the islanders and the AAV is reported to be anywhere between 2.5 per and 4.5 per. I’d take him at 2,5 but definitely not more then 3.

09 Aug 2021 04:56:02
Looking like 6 years too so that would be a non starter for me.

09 Aug 2021 06:27:26
Ya, 6 is to long. i'd like a 3 year.

10 Aug 2021 21:11:30
With the horrible signing of Evans and Toninato the Jets only have 1 spot open on the 4th line. With Ves, Gustaffson, Harkens and Perfetti fighting for that spot I expect Maurice to push for Chevy to sign Cizikas as then he wouldn't have to play a rookie.
