    OMG I didnt even see this  ,  So  Ryan Suzuki  is up for grabs this year .  in case you are wondering he played with Svechnikov last year with the Barrie Colts ,  I was under the impression he got drafted  but it was his brother Nick Suzuki that got picked instead of Ryan .   I was under the impression There was only 1  Suzuki  and not 2 lol  


    He is a forward in case people are wondering . 


    here are the low downs  on him  


    6'0  176 pounds  17  years old  

    shoots left  plays center 

    projected anywhere to go from 12th to 26th 


    he scored in 65 games   25 goals 50 assist   14 pim 


    the read out on him 

    Suzuki is one of the smartest OHL prospects we have seen in years. He is a good skater, excellent passer and is very good at putting himself in scoring positions, where he rarely fails to capitalize. He does not play overly physical, but is very good at avoiding contact while doing so. He has excellent hands and all around vision. The top player in the Alliance Loop this season, his name was the very first called in April's OHL Draft. (Tyler Parchem, EP 2017)

    Suzuki will be gone before we get there.


    We need to trade picks to get make roster player deals.

    I hope not. If he's not the best, he's one of the best. When he is doing a national game, and the guy from Charlotte fills in, it's really clear how good John is. There are a lot of comments about Tripp, but he and John make a good team. It just wouldn't be the same if they left. Their work made it bearable during the years between playoffs.

    Nbc would be able to pay a lot more than we could 

  3. Mrazek was fairly ‘okay’ for the year. Then for 2 months he was a top 10 goalie.  


    Although this leadership group doesnt care, they’d take a heap of scrutiny not keeping Mrazek. 


    At the same time highly skeptical at Mrazek being a #1 / repeating the last 2 months regularly. McE was our better starter for most of the season.  At the same time can McE repeat the same performance?


    If Ned is truly our starter then he needs to be walked into starting.  Getting 40-50% of the starts next season.  McE would be a solid backup for him in that scenario.


    it is a gamble, if Mrazek goes and carries another squad but McE/Ned struggle.  If we sign Mrazek to a long deal and he struggles then, we are hurt ourselves long term.



  4. Scored 5 unanswered to win this one.  Down 3-0, Jurco scored with 4.5 minutes left in the 2nd. Sellgren & Roy scored in the 1st half of the third, 69 seconds apart, to tie it up.


    checkers took the lead with less than 2 minutes left on a Poturalski score.  Brown added a EN 58 seconds later to seal it.


    Ned was pulled after allowing 3 goals on 12 shots. Tokarski stopped all 9 of the shots he faced in 35 minutes of play.


    pretty solid defense play by the team to only allow 9 shots in 35 minutes.

    Actually, if there’s a halfway decent goalie prospect, why not snag em with a late 1st or one of our 2nds?

    Big Sogaard should be there around our 2nd round pick.


    6’7, yep.

    had a respectable year for Medicine Hat with a 2.64 GAA. .921 sv %

    his U20 stats for Denmark, not too good.  6.16 and .802.  


    #2 ranked NA goalie.


    colten Ellis.  Decent stats in QMJHL but not as good for Canada’s U18 squad.  I guess due to my lack of knowledge of QMJHL, his numbers of 2.47 and.913 are actually really good.  People on hf boards are saying he should have more hype based on his play.

    I’ll take Trochek...cause Barkov isn’t going anywhere ;)

    They have 22 million right now with 15 roster players.  They’ll have to find someone to take on a goalie to get both. Luongo could be a great move for Ottawa. 3.6 million over 3 years actual money but a 4.53 cap hit. 


    They could have ~5.33 million in space with 16 roster spots, needing a defender and 3 forwards at a minimum.  They could move Hoffman to give them another 5 million in space.  


    I doubt we see a young roster player moved.

    There is a lot of good news in general. 

    *Brindy called out SeaBass by name. I don't have a huge problem with mentioning some names, but that was the only name he mentioned, which seemed a bit of a misplay. SeaBass may not have been at his A game, but he did lead the team in points and #2 in goals in the playoffs, and has struggled since his knee to knee injury. 


    Brindy was talking about this series specifically. We had 5 goals in 4 games. Your first line has to better. The first line a lone should have those numbers.  Aho is the 1C, he has to be the 1C in order to win a CFs.

    Curious as to what may happen with Fluery after getting stapled to the bench in the playoffs. 

    With TVR out and CDH possibly out, it’ll be interesting to see what we do for defense in October.


    May have to keep Fleury or add at least one veteran on a one year deal to have  a decent defense early.  Trades affecting that comment, obviously.

  9. Assuming we don’t move any.


    Since we are towards the bottom, I go with Nolan Foote as our 1st round pick. Safe pick, NHL pedigree, and plays a very smart game. 
    36th and 37th pick- Choose 2, Hoglander, Beaucage, and Grewe


    Hoglander is a smaller RW who gets to top speed quickly and maneuvers well. Didn’t do well in his first SHL season. Could be a 1st pick that had a bad year or could be guy that over performed in lower leagues. 2nd round pick is worth the gamble.  Seen some mocks where he goes before 28th.


    Grewe seems like the quintessential Canes 2nd round pick. Super quick and has a lot of skill.  High energy, battles, etc. The one concern is he has backed away from contact since the hype train started. My guess is he was injured but didn’t want to be known in fear of it killing his draft stock.  An injury didn’t but shying away from contact & dirty areas has.  Under appreciated pick seems like the Canes way.


    Beaucage- good winger who has jumped up the rankings because if his growth spurt. Could add some power to his finesse game with the new height and eventually more weight.

    Hopefully we can get some love from some of the better FAs this off-season and take the next step next year.  After all of the years of 'almost' making it, this has been a great surprise.  Bruins are a better team than I gave them credit for and they seem to be hitting their stride (at least Rask is anyways).  


    Really hating the goose egg tonight though.

    I really doubt we go FA fishing.  Trades maybe.
