Serious question for Leafs fans... say ya end the drought from 1967.. who goes and accepts the Cup?

Agree0 Disagree1

28 Dec 2018 23:24:27

29 Dec 2018 00:54:57
jt passes to marleau.

29 Dec 2018 00:58:08
As longest serving leader to the team, I’d send Rielly, he’s played thru some rubbish years before now, he deserves it
More than anyone imo.

29 Dec 2018 01:37:00
Good choice Leafs17
. . anyway was a dumb? . bout as much chance as Leafs winning as Marincin hoisting cup from Betmann. . poor Leafs fans. never to see a cup Victory. and ya never will. may have been awhile. but I have witnessed 3 Habs cups.

29 Dec 2018 01:57:01
We bring in Clarkson on a one day contract for this specific role.

29 Dec 2018 01:58:04
Patrick Marleau deserves it the most. Almost 20 seasons in the NHL and never won a cup. Maybe Tavares. A veteran will probably grab it over Mathew, Marner and Rielly.

29 Dec 2018 07:11:55
As an outsider. I'd say, Reilly. then to Mathews to Tavares. then the old man. . however. a lot also depends on who would be Conn Smythe. .

29 Dec 2018 15:56:26
Sosa you really need to stop drinking. Your weekend posts are always bitter and angry.

29 Dec 2018 19:52:38
I think vbbb has the right idea. one of those two.

28 Dec 2018 19:55:10
NJ- Marcus joh.

Agree0 Disagree1

28 Dec 2018 18:08:23
With the seatle expension draft coming, do u see the bruins trading Krug, krejci and Backes this year or next year? Or is it even possible that they buyout Backes.

What do u guys think might happen?

Agree0 Disagree1

28 Dec 2018 22:46:48
Anything is possible at this point but it's still a long ways off so if they even have plans ATM they could change.

28 Dec 2018 09:30:25
Price was just about back to top form and now he's injured again. he should just start thinking about retirement

Agree3 Disagree2

28 Dec 2018 12:31:38
Don’t worry, he’s only under contract for another (**checks cap friendly and throws up in mouth**)

28 Dec 2018 23:10:41
I don't think he should retire. not at all., like ya said, he was getting back to being his ok self., this deffinetley is a bad blow for the team, and, we can't do anything bout his contract., so let's jus wish him a Speedy recovery, and hope he comes back strong.
As you are Habby, I'm frustrated, but, what is the alternative? No heir to the throne that I see? Maybe Primeau in about 5 years.

28 Dec 2018 23:12:16
Yep that contract is looking pretty bad guy just can't stay healthy for any stretch of time. I said he injured it that last game against Ottawa when tkachuk shoved his leg with his stick. Looks like that was probably the case played good lately so this one hurts. This next 12 game stretch was going to make or break the habs playoffs hopes I think and this isn't a real good way to start it off.

28 Dec 2018 23:32:20
The alternative Sosa if his contract was off the books is they could probably sign bobrovsky or varlamov in the off season. But yeah nobody in the system is ready to take over as number 1. I would give mcniven the chance in prices absence but I'd say niemi will start most if not all the games while he's out.

28 Dec 2018 23:49:16
I'd like to see McNiven givin a shot to start a game. why not.? Niemi was a good story last season, but really has been bad this season.
As for Price. maybe I'm a fool, but I feel we will get a better than average goalie fo the next 6 seasons. unfortunately, yes. he is overpaid. he's one of the reasons I want to see max 5 year deals. as well as 2 yr max after 35th Bday.

29 Dec 2018 19:54:07
Playing like he was the last few weeks I wouldn't even consider him over paid but with the injuries it doesn't look good right now.

27 Dec 2018 08:29:34
Good job Canada on not over celebrating the goals against Denmark.. Yes, the score was lopsided., and people may say they ran up the score, but.. what are they supposed to do..? Stop playing.. anyway, was really impressed with them not doing the over the top rub it in your face American style celebrations..
Why a Canadian player had class.. and American.. nothing but an ass

Agree1 Disagree1

27 Dec 2018 14:31:20
I think one can make the argument that not trying hard when you are up by a lopsided amount is more disrespectful than keeping your foot on the gas. As you said, as long as you are not rubbing it in the other team's face and doing big celebrations after each goal I have no problem with bringing your best on every shift. It's a game and that's how it should be played.

Also, I'm not sure but if goal differential comes into play in any of the "tiebreaker" categories but if it does each team should be trying to win by as many goals no matter what.

27 Dec 2018 20:05:07
Ya. I'm not to sure about the goal differential.
And. I should be a little more fair to the Americans., it was some of the teams in the past who over celebrated in routes, maybe these kids will be different.

27 Dec 2018 22:04:30
That's why American says were obnoxious us Candiens.

27 Dec 2018 23:21:15
Yea after a bit they celebrate as a group on the ice then went straight to the dot for the face off, no high fiving celebrating the bench. Classy. And yes I think goal differential would come into play if a tie breaker, that's why they can't just give up completely. Nice classy game by the Canadians. I liked it.

28 Dec 2018 01:10:19
Kuznetzkov is cockier then any American in the nhl. Same with laine.

25 Dec 2018 05:45:46
Merry Christmas everybody!

Agree1 Disagree1

25 Dec 2018 13:55:26
Cheers buddy, to you and your family as well, to everyone and everyones families!

25 Dec 2018 15:10:11
Merry Christmas.

25 Dec 2018 21:04:50
Have a Merry Christmas all.

25 Dec 2018 22:50:59
Merry Christmas.

28 Dec 2018 01:36:39
Love all the “disagrees” lol.

22 Dec 2018 23:49:32
Would a Douggie Hamilton 1st And 2 2nds be a comparible to a Colton Paryanko Return or would it be closer to a Erik Karlsson Trade? These proposals for Paryanko seem foolish. Saint Louis will probably ask for a Karlsson return and the opposing gm will suggest a Dougie Hamilton return the results will probably be in the middle.

So probably a top prospect, Sub par roster player, Mediocre cap dump, decent prospect and a 1st is probably the asking price for him.

What they'll get is probably a solid prospect like Josh Norris, a Roster player and 1st.

Do you guys agree or disagree?

Agree1 Disagree7

24 Dec 2018 01:11:48
Blues would be better off just keeping parayko. He is doing just fine in the 1rhd, role. The role most people said he probably couldn't handle. With petro injured and only having a year left might as well hold on to him unless an offer we can't refuse is made.

25 Dec 2018 15:55:23
Yeah I'd keep parayko but I would look at trading petro if they don't turn things around.

25 Dec 2018 22:57:10
Wouldn't mind that but not at the sheet offers that fellow trade boards have. Rather resign him.

26 Dec 2018 01:23:47
We'll I'm sure they would get a good return unless they really poop to bed.

22 Dec 2018 14:27:58
Mtl: Gallagher, Petry

Edm: Nurse, Lucic, Pulijujarvi

Agree2 Disagree5

21 Dec 2018 15:28:28
Who is in your top 5 defenseman list right now in the league?

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Dec 2018 17:26:12
Just based on this season? Like who is playing the best right now? Or more of who would be the top 5 I'd take right now in a 7 game playoff series?

21 Dec 2018 19:11:22

21 Dec 2018 19:29:12
Right now? Like today? Because I say drew doughty is the best in the league but basing off these 35ish games, he’s fallen behind.

This season Rielly and Chabot have been unbelievable, Weber has been insane since coming back. Seth Jones should always be in the conversation. Hedman is only on pace for a decent year pts wise by his standards, but his all round game is something to marvel. And I’m probably missing a really obvious one or two. John Carlsson has been real good too

With Kieth aging on a poor team, and doughty and Karlsson really struggling (for their expectations) it might be the most unpredictable Norris race in decades.

21 Dec 2018 20:32:30
I'm with you on this one Jim. So much uncertainty this year and defensive players are evolving into a different style recently and have expectations of producing more offensively. Rielly, Chabot, Jones are in that race for sure. Weber (huge fan of his) i think is still a small sample size for this year but he has come back strong. Hedman, Josi. This has been a fun year to watch defense guys develop.

21 Dec 2018 20:54:58
Agree with jim on most things I don't think weber deserves to be in the convo yet though. Also I'd have to add Giordano cause I think he would win the Norris if it was picked today.

21 Dec 2018 21:08:39
Not saying Karlsson has been the best this season but he actually hasn’t struggled as much as people say. He has some of the best defensive stats in the whole league this year and has been PPG the past month. His slow start just made people assume he was declining even tho he starts slow almost every year.

21 Dec 2018 22:10:11
Who you would pick in like a fantasy draft not just this season.

21 Dec 2018 22:36:24
I think Rielly has a legitimate chance at the Norris it’s more likely he wins that then Mathews or Tavares win something.

22 Dec 2018 00:01:34
Reilly deffinetley has a shot. I'm with Habby, right now Gio in Calgary.

22 Dec 2018 02:03:30
@vbbbb if he keeps up his scoring rate he's got a real good chance.

22 Dec 2018 11:30:07
@prodepth, that’s why I said he has struggled by his standards. The offensive standards he has set for himself, coupled with the expectation that a fresh start and the off ice drama cleared up was going to be hard to meet. No slight meant to him. It’s just if he isn’t his usual incredible self, that opens the door for some of these other guys to get some recognition.

@thunder, you got to take into consideration that Rielly hit 3 posts in one game and 2 crossbars in the next so IF everything he shot went in, he would be far ahead of Chabot and jones, right?! . Isn’t that how we are determining things on here now? Lol

@habby And I left Giordano off because I thought to myself “if Giordano wasn’t so good, then he wouldn’t be so good. And if he wasn’t good, then he wouldn’t make this list”.

22 Dec 2018 11:35:33
Karlsson, Hedman, Doughty, Jones, Carlson.

22 Dec 2018 14:21:54
Gio has to be in that list.

22 Dec 2018 15:05:08
For #5 I’d be stuck choosing between one of Burns/ Josi/ Giordano.

22 Dec 2018 16:02:59
At biased jim yeah that sounds like your thought process I was thinking you left him off cause you were just being childish like always.

22 Dec 2018 21:41:16
Not just counting this season, I’m about exact list as ProDepth and then those 3 options at #5 are pretty interchangeable.

22 Dec 2018 21:43:36
I’m not being childish, I'm just not smart, remember? I’m just applying your logic to everything now because apparently that’s smart. So I just think 'what if' everything went 100% right for my team and then believe that that is true reality and anything short of that is not fair.

23 Dec 2018 14:42:33
Yeah ok your not being childish lol. I'm picturing a snotty nose 10 year old kicking his bedroom walls when someone doesn't agree with him. Lol.

23 Dec 2018 21:21:38
You’re the guy that went off so upset about Unsportsmanlike not agreeing with you haha his opinion was that habs lack offensive talent and you shouted down his opinion. It’s his opinion! Lol you can’t take anyone not agreeing with you. The pot calling the kettle black 😂.

24 Dec 2018 00:42:42
Yeah ok like your any better? Lol you argue with everyone who doesn't agree with you on here more then anyone else.

24 Dec 2018 01:23:33
That’s fine lol you just said I’m being childish and I just showed you did the identical thing. I’ve always said you’re a hypocrite and you just showed it again lol. Everything you chirp me for you do just as much or more without realizing it I guess.

24 Dec 2018 01:51:54
I'm not a hypocrite I've admitted on here several times that I have been childish and biased. You can't admit to that though. Even though you are, that would mean you would then have to change that username which is the most hypocritical thing on this site.

24 Dec 2018 01:58:05
And I mainly stick to just arguing with you lol.

24 Dec 2018 18:44:05
Sorry Jim, very confused by your response to me regarding Reiley. i was agreeing with you and had him in my list.

24 Dec 2018 19:01:08
No this was Unsportsmanlikes opinion that he wasn’t allowed to have either. Stay on that pedestal Crabby. And I still find it hilarious my name bothers you so much. Like I should be campaigning and lobbying for you to change Habby to Crabby because you’re a grumpy old man. But if you did, it wouldn’t be fun to say it anymore. Think about it. If I just changed my name to what you want, what would you do with all your time between matlock, murder she wrote and your afternoon naps?!

24 Dec 2018 23:56:03
Thunder, it was just a jab at Habbys ‘what ifs’ he uses to justify the habs standings. Nothing with you. He says IF the habs scored more goals on the PP they would win more and could catch the leafs. So I was saying well IF every shot Rielly took went in, he would have more goals. It’s the captain obvious mentality.

25 Dec 2018 14:12:30
IF Jim changed his name more people could take him seriously.

25 Dec 2018 22:51:23
Habby, I’m not changing my name lol I’ve had it all along and don’t need to change it or have multiple accounts. If you don’t like it, just log back into ‘Biased Jim’ and comment how you want lol otherwise, get over it.

25 Dec 2018 22:52:10
And because it’s christmas and I’m in the giving mood, you’re right Habby, I’ll give you credit, habs are a very talented team and anyone who says otherwise is and was out of line. Moving on now?!

26 Dec 2018 21:11:29
Where did your comment go?! You play dumb again about not knowing the account ‘biased jim’ after that’s what you call me and it shows up writing just like you. Now your comments and that one is deleted at the same time?! Lol come on man. Get off the pedestal, you’re as childish as anyone, you’re as petty as anyone, you make fake accounts to mock people like other guys on here have done. You’re the definition of hypocritical. Get over yourself and move on.

26 Dec 2018 21:17:56

27 Dec 2018 21:45:07
Administrator any chance you can clear up these accusations please?

{Ed033's Note - The username BiasedJim was registered on August 7 2018. There was another username that posted on this site on August 7 2018 that had the same IP address as the BiasedJim username. That other username was Unbiased Jim.

21 Dec 2018 01:51:43
Heres one for you guys:

If you could go back in time, to the 2013 draft, who you taking first of these two:
- Alex Barkov
- Nathan MacKinnon

Id throw in Jones but that brings in a C vs. D debate, so keeping it simple, two ELITE centers.

Agree2 Disagree0

21 Dec 2018 02:11:59

21 Dec 2018 02:27:39

21 Dec 2018 10:13:07
Can’t really go wrong, but I’ll say mackinnon.

21 Dec 2018 10:19:05
Hard, MacKinnon is more explosive and prolly even better offensively while Barkov is one of the best defensive Fs in the game. Coin flip.

21 Dec 2018 13:37:45
Idk how you can’t take Mackinnon he’s so much more dynamic And harder for deffensman to read. Also he’s way funner to watch. That’s taking nothing away from Barkov just I don’t think it’s close Mackinnon is top 5 C and Barkov is closer to 10th.

21 Dec 2018 14:40:13
Can't go wrong either way, but when it's a toss-up I'd always go with the Good Ol' Canadian lad.

21 Dec 2018 15:22:47

21 Dec 2018 15:30:21
Atta Boy Unsportsmanlike. I also say Mack. I think he's 3rd best Center in game.

21 Dec 2018 15:37:02
Yeah, barkov is like a kopitar. Big, strong, still highly skilled but not the same kind of explosiveness. Will probably always fly under the radar and deserves more credit than he gets, but I think mackinnon is a step above.

21 Dec 2018 15:55:45
Have to got MacKinnon here. Canadian bias plays into it a bit but they are both awesome.

21 Dec 2018 19:12:56
Really the 3rd best C Sosa? Mathews, McDavid And Crosby.

21 Dec 2018 21:15:04
I’d take Mackinnon for reasons other people have stated.

Also in response to vbb^
No disrespect to Matthews he’s amazing but Mackinnon has proved much more than him. My top 5 centres are McDavid, Crosby, Mackinnon, Malkin, and Schiefele:

21 Dec 2018 22:37:27
I’d personally put Mathews 3rd easily.

21 Dec 2018 22:38:47
Yes. I'll take MacKinnon over Mathews. overall game. and hustle . Mathews is more capable of having a really good game. but then followed up with 2 quiet ones. MacKinnon seems to bring it ever shift.

21 Dec 2018 22:45:07
I think Mack is better then crosby right now.

22 Dec 2018 00:03:09
Habby, a case could be made for that. In a game 7 of Playoffs, I'll still take Crosby over any player in the game. may be the last year I say that. but he's still 5he best all around guy I think.

22 Dec 2018 11:32:01
For me, itd be MacK, but I really do think Barkov is right there with him. he's so strong, smart, skilled ad defnesively responsible.

As for top five centers, boy, that's become hard, i'd have some combination of MacKinnon, Barkov, Matthews, Eichel, Malkin, Schief rounding out behind McDavid/ Crosby. (Im probaby forgetting some too, but imo after 1&2, the top8 is almost solely up to perspective.
