  1. Past hour
  2. I think all speculation so far as to why the Isles "overpaid" Brock Nelson is incorrect. I think they did it because they wanted him back, but he was so devastated after getting patted on the head in the handshake line, they needed to build up his ego again if he was to be at all useful.
  3. Today
  4. Only if that leads to a Blues victory.
  5. Interesting. Karmanos owns the Everblades, wonder what the relationship between him and TD is at this point and if that was a major factor in the move?
  6. Got to ask: what's your point? Did you: Not read the previous posts. Read but not comprehend the previous posts. Something else? (please elucidate).
  7. I don't know if it's Waddell doing the negotiating. Didn't TD hire a former agent to negotiate contracts?
  8. Everblades changing affiliation to Nashville next season. https://www.floridaeverblades.com/en/news/everblades-enter-affiliation-with-nashville-predators?fbclid=IwAR3PLSd5ZRs7OK9FrKgSY9FoCvY4VsGfacmYGUKrQQkIyffRuIeHlxRTY4k
  9. I'm always on board with adding talent, but this year really does feel like the year to do it, in a wise way. By that I mean adding a proven guy with tread left on the tires who will upgrade the PP and third line scoring. As you say, Danimal, now is the perfect time to do it. This team is on the rise. Season ticket sales are way up. The trend on sales and excitement is peaking now. A big signing would bump that. I remember the excitement around J Williams signing and that was before this peak. What a time to show the fan base that the time is now. We are entering the start of a new era. Also, what a huge setback it would be to not make the playoffs and fall back right now. As always, teams at the bottom are working hard to get better. New Jersey will now have three elite forwards, NYR will add one too, Florida has designs to rocket up the standings by adding Panerin and Bob. Montreal was right there at the doorstep. Rod himself said this team could not have done any better with what it had, and that was to barely get in on the back of a run that left them exhausted by the ECF. IMO the weakness is third line center. But really offensively second line center (push J down to third). That one move, if done right, is all we need really. I do expect Aho, Slavin, TT to improve some, but I really expect Svech to improve a lot. I see serious production from him next year. I also expect Foegele to be more productive. His end of year and playoff scoring as a rookie, suggest he will be much more productive, maybe 15-20 goals and 35 points IMO. I also expect Necas to really push to make this team next year, but probably as a winger. So, with the improvements, and a solid, proven new 2C, we should be set for a good while.
  10. No need to trade , Ned is just streaky , He played really good in game 2 . I just wonder what happened to him in game 3 .
  11. No to status quo with Wallmark McKegg.
  12. Hoping Tarasenko sets a record for goals scored during the SCF.
  13. Yeah he totally sucked and was solely the reason for this loss. I say trade him immediately, hes a lost cause. sa
  14. I think that's the point. Scoring is valuable, but so are true 2-way centers, and Lou knows it. Nelson (1) is one, and (2) has paid his dues. Plus, we are quite a few years down the road from when Jordo signed. 6 mil is an overpayment, but only when viewed one year at a time. It's fair to both sides when viewed as locking in a guy with his skills as you try to build toward a Cup, IMO. Edit to add: And it won't surprise me one bit if Jordan's deal and on-ice responsibilities are the model Lou would cite if anyone questioned him.
  15. he ain't shy... I love it.
  16. With the excitement of this team where it is now, imagine if we brought a couple big scorers on this summer(been saying that for 10years). The feeling going into next season would be electric. If we stay put with the line up I fear we will have an up and down year and maybe or maybe not squeak into the playoffs again. We need a little new scoring blood added to this chemistry and heart team we have and we could be a top 5 in the east with no questions asked. Seems Rod will put the pressure on to add some skill and talent to the line up. Now that he has proven himself hopefully the committee will listen to him and go after his targets this summer.
  17. Like the Islanders extended Brock Nelson, I wish Waddell would move forward with Sebastian, and not let that linger unless his agent is trying to gauge where his next salary falls. To me, this act of solidifying Aho's place and $$ would give fans an extra good feeling and help the organization map out better where it can go?
  18. If lets that that does happen , And im not saying it's not a possibility . Could Mike Maniscalco get the job as pbp ? I prefer him over jason any day of the week . But I would hope he works on his excitement voice when the canes scored a goal lol .
  19. Hockey Gods decree that the Blues won WCF for hand pass loss to sharks. This Karma will continue into Finals.
  20. Well the checkers loss the game but at least i got to see more of what alex brings . he did not do very well with letting in a few softies .
  21. The real question is did those who didn't pick the Canes bring shame amongst themselves?
  22. 4-3 marlies. Checkers looked like poop in OT.
  23. Trying not to get to excited about Sellgren but, he has scored again tonight. 2 goals in 5 games. On the ice for 2 goals tonight.
  24. The network gig is what every PBP guy wants. It's hitting the PBP lottery. I hate to say it, but on many occasions this year when Tripp or John would mention how he'd just called a game a thousand miles away the night before, or was heading to one the following night, I wondered how much longer he'd be able to do that. If the network gig is what he wants, I hope John gets it, and is the top dog. Emrick is 72 and it's showing. Time for him to move over.
