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.

08 Aug 2021 11:00:19
HockeyBuzz says Gaudreau trade talk picked up again yesterday with the following teams interested in him

NY Islanders
Montreal Canadiens
LA Kings
Ottawa Senators
Minnesota Wild

I'm very skeptical of that list, Montreal and Ottawa have a player they might be willing to trade that Calgary would be interested in but the others don't really have what Calgary would be looking for in return.

Calgary's biggest need is a top 6 right shot RW.

Montreal has 3 of those in Toffoli, Anderson and Gallagher. I can't see Montreal trading Gallagher, he's been a core player for them for years now. After the year Toffoli just had and the chemistry he has with Suziki and Caufield I can't see them trading him either. That leaves Anderson, a player the Flames tried to trade for before who happens to be a Sutter type player too, big fast and physical.

Ottawa won't want to trade Batherson but after the chemistry Connor Brown showed with Mangiapane at the Worlds this year, Calgary should be interested in him if Ottawa is willing to trade him.

I'm a little skeptical of Ottawa being interested in Gaudreau because they already have Brady Tkachuk and Tim Stutzle at LW. Unless they want to play Stutzle at center which apparently he can play.

The Isles are probably the only one of those teams that is on Johnny's list of 5 teams he can be traded to. However if he isn't getting extended in Calgary I believe he'd waive for Montreal or Ottawa because it gets him closer to where he calls home if negotiations don't work out the way he wants there either. I doubt he'd waive for Minnisota or LA unless they offered him a pile of money first.

Agree2 Disagree0

08 Aug 2021 12:18:56
Hockeybuzz sucks.

09 Aug 2021 01:37:07
I don’t think I would trade Anderson for Gaudreau. Habs need Anderson style player more than Gaudreau type.
More size and toughness and more grit. Anderson can also score goals in the tough areas.

09 Aug 2021 03:26:47
Muzza01. I agree 100%.

09 Aug 2021 04:48:17
@muzza01 I’m a flames fan but I 100% agree, Gaudreau is very good offensively but he’s not the type of player they need.

10 Aug 2021 03:18:39
Thank guys.
I think Gaudreau is a great offensive player. But he plays to much of a finesse game.
Where as Anderson is the player the Habs needed for a long time. Wish they would have signed Perry for another season or two.

10 Aug 2021 14:13:51
LMAO really MoxNix. Hockeybuzz? Usually what Eklund reports is the exact opposite of what actually happens.

10 Aug 2021 19:33:41
Muzza. I was really disappointed when Habs didn't get Perry back.

12 Aug 2021 04:32:26
Same here Sosahabs24. Very disappointed in Habs not signing Perry. I thought he played very well with the Habs. He was the exact kind of player they needed and lacked for so long. Having Anderson and Perry was great for the Habs. Adding size, toughness, and grit. Perry wealth of experience and a cup winner.

06 Aug 2021 02:10:46
Gonna miss Tatar. I know he had a lot of flaws, and I understand why Habs aren't re signing him, however, he was a really good player for Montreal.
Habby, Turkey.. or whoever else..

Outta these 3.. who would ya rather have?

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Aug 2021 03:50:15
If whatever was going on with drouin has been resolved like they say I’d probably take him. Hoffman has always been pretty deadly on the power play and habs need help there so he’s a close 2nd. Tatar did play well while he was here. in the regular season at least but he really hasn’t had a good playoff his whole career and his last 3 playoff appearances have been brutal.

06 Aug 2021 13:59:31
Hoffman helps on the powerplay but is terrible defensively. Drouin is hit and miss but 4-5 years younger than the other two. Tatar played a better all around game in my opinion.
1. Drouin - just because of age and potential
2. Tatar - could still be above 0.6 ppg
3. Hoffman - defensive liability

I really don't like that Hoffman signing. With CC and Tafoli we really don't need another sniper unless CC goes back to school.

06 Aug 2021 15:50:26
Hoffman is not terrible defensively. for your typical goal scorer he’s about average. Tatar wasn’t great defensively either until he got on a line with two guys who are. he may be slightly better then Hoffman in that area but I doubt it’s enough to make a difference. and yes we have toffoli and Caufield but even with them the power play wasn’t great, add in the loss of Weber’s shot Hoffman should be a big help and another shooter option who can score from anywhere inside the blue line.

09 Aug 2021 01:48:56
I’m with you Sosa I’d even rather resign stall for another year then to do this. not saying the value is off but just my preference.

09 Aug 2021 04:21:25
My last comment here was suppose to go on the Monaghan for Anderson post lol.

03 Aug 2021 18:22:53
Winnipeg Jets must feel they have enough pieces to win the cup with Dillon and Schmidt. But I think they need more.
Hoping they would have signed the likes of Coleman or someone similar.
They don't have much to really trade to improve the team any. The core is great but need more on the 3rd and 4th lines.
Defence is ok. Not great but improved from last year.
Another note
Barkov is a free agent next year. Wishing the Jets would have kept Laine and traded Wheeler instead.
Imagine Barkov and Laine on the Jets together.
They could end up together in the near future anyways. But being from Winnipeg, it would be nice if it was with the Jets.
I know Panthers won't let him walk but who knows for sure.

Agree4 Disagree0

03 Aug 2021 23:53:26
They were dumb to trade Laine, keeping Wheeler was a mistake. He’s 34 and apparently doesn’t treat the young guys well.
