  1. Not so quick on Necas. It also says that players with 40/70 NHL/AHL games played requirement will not be considered until the beginning of the 2019-20 season. Necas is already beyond that in pro games and will not be exempt.
  2. Some rumors circling around Twitter that Aho is out. ??? Hope it's just some sarcastic jokers having fun with the Geekie recall.
  3. True, but that was the Knight's cost and not necessarily ours. Knowing how desperate we were and how many picks we have, I think the Hawks didn't hesitate trying to hose Don. My guess is the committee was willing to part at with one 1st and 2nds plus player(s) for a goalie and a decent D-man. Since they expected Petr not to be out too long it makes sense that they opted for Skjei and the length of his contract. Going for Lehner would have meant losing either Petr or Reims on waiver or ending up paying their NHL salary in Charlotte and still risk Lehner walking after the season if we didn't pay what he expected.
  4. $$$ Between Philly and the Craps their market share must be in the millions.
  5. That's because he is, literally, standing still most of the time when he tries to stop or control a bouncing puck. What irks me about his play is that we know that he is capable of crisp outlet passes but easily gets flustered and hesitates a second too long under pressure. Throw a puck into the mix and he looks like a mutt chasing his tail. To keep it on topic though, so far I like what Skjei brings to the ice.
  6. Special teams made all the difference. Each team had 3 PPGs with Flyers adding a SHG and ES goal.
  7. I think similar questions where asked about Cole back in the day. Management or the owner can request any player's name be included but the only sure way was that a player has at least one appearance in the playoffs (or Finals?). I could be wrong though.
  8. In his first game for the Rags, Goat played a little over 7 minutes and registered 1 SOG and 2 Giveaways.
  9. Some possible "whys: (Cory Lavalette) … Goat would have to clear waivers next season. Kean doesn't have to for another 2 years. Also doesn't have to be protected during the expansion draft.
