Hope they give the Captaincy to Gallagher. I think he deserves it.

 

Actually seems like a decent return for MP given the situation and his shan form last year. Plus the fact he'll be wanting silly money when he could easily be on the decline. Quite like the sound of Nick Suzuki in particular. Only downside seems to be his size.

We've been here before but:

 

Karlsson sweepstakes underway again. McKenzie and Dreger reporting San Jose making a big push. LeBrun saying Dallas and Vegas also in but how much the former will be, after signing Seguin for 8 years, at $78.8m...

Erm....

 

Was just about to post that. Seems a pretty bad deal on first inspection. Looks like Montreal are going to have a fight on their hands to finish dead last.

Initial reaction from 'experts' is its absolutely honking. :lol:

 

It appears they've got a third line scorer (Tierney), a bottom pairing D (DeMelo), a 19th pick in a fairly average draft (Norris) and a young AHL scorer (Balcers). The 1st round pick will probably be a pretty high pick too.

 

I would have definitely expected a better return.

Like father like son.

 

That's him suspended for the rest of the preseason.

 

That'll teach him. :rofl:

Massively biased but Kotkaniemi (Habs' 'off-the-board pick at 3 in the '18 draft) looks like he could be something special. Great vision and poise for an 18 year old. Needs to bulk up a little and his skating could be better but he doesn't look out of place in the late preseason line up.

Chester's pal Tom Wilson at it again. Hitting like it's 1993 :lol: 

 

Another disgusting, blindside hit to the head. He's an in person hearing which means a possibility of 6 or above. Knowing DoPS, he'll get a game.

Good. About time they came down hard.

 

'Unprecedented frequency of suspensions in the history of Department of Player Safety'. His 4th in 105 games, just 19 since his last and all for similar offences. Also forfeits $1.2m.

 

Judging by most around the league that i've seen, both fans and journalists, the consensus is they've got it right.

I think they have. A quarter of the season is a big deal. Hope he learns from it this time.

Decent start to the season for the Habs despite last night's OT loss. Thought we dominated most of the game and we pretty unlucky to lose. Some proper iffy calls in the first gave the Leafs loads of powerplay time - it was as if the refs just wanted to see Toronto's much publicised first powerplay unit! Delighted to see Alzner scratched too. The team looked so quick out there without him.

 

Now on to Boston...

 

:lol:

The Habs looked very good last night and Leafs were lucky to win. Both goalies played very well.  But a win is a win ...

Toronto need to trade for 2/3 decent D this year if they're going to get near the cup imho.

It's a problem they've been trying to solve for a couple of years, without success.

 

The approach they're taking this year seems to be that if they can keep the puck in the opposing end it will take the pressure off the defence.  That didn't work too well last night.

Sportsnet describing Hainsey as the leaf's best penalty killer had me laughing.

Nice to see the Pens are sacking defense and going with the old 'if they score one (or more), we'll score two (or more) approach'. :greggy:

Doubt I'll be awake for it. Constantly up early for uni, shitload of study to do and the MotoGP starts at 8am.

Me neither. Got a stag do in Glasgow tomorrow (although I’m shamelessly getting the last train home). Guess there’s a chance I’ll catch the end but I’ll be half cut so probably unlikely.

Cracking win. Lord Byron opening his account for the season. Pens looked really rusty though. Watched periods 2 & 3 and I didn’t notice Crosby at all.

The Leafs are trying a similar 'outscore our defensive mistakes' approach.  They won 7-6 in Chicago last night.  That sounds more like an NFL score!

Austin Nostrils with 9 goals already this season :muggy: 

 

He certainly has a nose for goal.  Make it 10 now after Leafs win against Washington. :winkiss:

After spending loads of time trying to find feeds for games I've just discovered that I can watch games live on my William Hill app. So basically if you open an account with £10 it gives you a season for a tenner.

And in doing so, are you aware of any form of black magic (or electronic jiggery-pokery - I'm not fussy) that would allow one to view it up on a telly?

 

The puck is hard enough to see on that far less a phone screen smaller than a beermat.

Apparently the PA said that Rule 48 wasnt broken - :vrface:

Said if he was to be suspended, no more than 8 (EIGHT) games - :vrface:

Parros warned Wilson twice in last year's playoffs to change how he was playing and hitting other players - :facepalm:
