Re: News and Games around the NHL

I think it will end up being Brouwer that slots in unless they want him in MacMac's slot on the 4th line, but I would sure like to see Kyrou's speed in against the Canucks if Blais is out. Kyrou just doesn't seem to work with Schwartz and Schenn, but I would love to see him on RW with Perron and ROR...

Re: Playoff qualifing games [other teams]

The Kadri trade was bad but once you go all in on JT someone had to go. Kadri was the heart and soul of that team. When they miraculously win the lottery tonight it’s going to make it very easy to move on from one of their forwards. I wouldn’t be surprised if they try and move Marner. I don’t know ...

Re: Blues fans screwed over

I'm not thrilled, but I think I prefer this to the alternative of mid-afternoon starts where I have to DVR the game and watch it after work. I have more discipline to stay up later than I do to insulate myself from the outcome of a game that has already ended until I can sit down and watch it.

Re: GDT: St Louis Blues vs Vegas - 8/6 - 5:30 TV:FSMW/NHL

Blues haven’t played a meaningful game yet...they don’t give a shit what seed they are going into the playoffs This. They haven’t played well at all yet and their “punishment” is going to be playing Calgary, Minnesota or Vancouver in Round 1. I don’t think anyone is happy with how they have been pl...

Re: Playoff qualifing games [other teams]

I'd trade the #1 pick for a stud Dman before I would ever trade Draisaitl. Gotta make the money work. If EDM gets the 1OA and the Blues are able to offload Bozak and come to terms with Petro... Parayko, Schwartz, Kyrou and Allen ($1.35M retained) for Draisaitl and Klefbom Schenn-ROR-Tarasenko Drais...

Re: Blues vs Avs game #1 8/2/2020

If the Blues don’t beat Vegas , looks like a pretty good chance we are gonna have a 7 game series against Connor and Leon Nah, not in the first round. All we have to do at this point is beat Dallas on Sunday to hold on to #3 if Dallas doesn't get a point against Colorado. If we beat Vegas, we'll en...

Re: Playoff qualifing games [other teams]

The Original 6 issues notwithstanding, I think I would like to see the Rangers end up with the first overall pick out of the teams that are left and will likely get eliminated. Mainly because I want to see some balance restored to the three NY area teams after the Devils got the first overall twice ...

Re: Re-Training Camp

So one thing I've noticed based on the practice groupings so far is that the odd forward out at the moment appears to be Barbashev. This doesn't mean a lot at the moment since they'll have an exhibition game as well as another couple weeks of camp, but Barbashev can't be feeling secure at the momen...

Re: Blues Prospects Thread (2019-20)

We should be enjoying our summer talking about this current offseason and getting pumped up for training camp in another 9 weeks. Everything I look forward to about hockey is ruined at the present time. Tim, you're really harshing my mellow with these comments lately. Let people enjoy things. :lol:

Re: Blues Prospects Thread (2019-20)

The former Blues ECHL affiliate Tulsa Oilers have signed a three-year deal with San Diego (AHL) and Anaheim (NHL). The Blues new AHL affiliate, the Springfield Thunderbirds, had no ECHL affiliate in the past. How this may affect the St. Louis prospects shuffling for future seasons remains to be see...

Re: McKenzie’s final draft rankings

Having the first pick is a bitch this year...yeah you will get a real good player in Lafreniere but once Byfield figures it out, you might really regret passing on him 10 years down the road. Of course Byfield might not ever figure it out and I’ll be first on record as saying the kid has never impr...

Re: News and Games around the NHL

Posted on HF Boards yesterday so I'm assuming this is recent. Hawk logo in target practice. Capture.PNG Call me crazy, but I wouldn't put a target in the middle of the goalie's chest. ;) It's all fun & games, until somebody loses a nipple. :( I lost a nipple once, but then I found a quarter so I wa...

Re: News and Games around the NHL

https://twitter.com/friedgehnic/status/1266100686527307777?s=21 So at best, end of July start time. They are going to be finishing this season on Halloween. If they had camp for two weeks ahead of the play-in round, they could start the play-in round on Saturday, July 25. Games all afternoon and ev...

Re: News and Games around the NHL

https://twitter.com/PierreVLeBrun/status/1265709211960446976?s=20 Can't see how they don't go to best of 7 in 2nd round. Would be shocked if otherwise. Unless they can't start until September.... Going best-of-7 versus best-of-5 in the first two rounds shouldn't add more than a week to the playoff ...

Re: News and Games around the NHL

So let’s play a best of 5 to eliminate 8 teams that probably wouldn’t have made the playoffs anyway. It is imperfect at best, but they had to do something to deal with the fact that 2 teams in the East (CBJ and NYI) and 4 teams in the West (CGY, WPG, NSH, VAN) could have been either in or out depen...

Re: News and Games around the NHL

Unrelated to all this potential playoff format stuff, Elliotte Friedman mentioned in his latest 31 Thoughts piece that the June draft idea seems to be on hold. He mentioned it casually, so maybe that's been out there for a while and I missed it. If they're scrapping that plan I wonder when it will ...
