I'm curious to know... If this Crisis lasts for a long time, would the NHL cancel this season, and just wait for the next?? Or.. totally change up the calendar for a year?? And if so play playoffs in Summer , or even Fall if need be?? And then possibly a 40 to 50 game regulars season for the 20/21 season??
Also.. if this season is scrapped?? Would end of season individual awards be given??

Anyway. , hope all of you and your families stay safe and healthy during this weird time..


1.) 18 Mar 2020 23:47:16
I think scrapping this season will be the very last resort. I think they'll find someway to get the playoffs in even if they are sharply shortened.

2.) 19 Mar 2020 08:57:28
Next season will be shortened before this one is cancelled imo.

3.) 19 Mar 2020 13:45:17
Players want to shorten both seasons. Start next year in November. It's all over the news.

4.) 19 Mar 2020 14:51:22
Apparently Bill Daley said shortening next season isn’t going to happen. I think have 5 game series until the last round is a good idea. I know it’ll barely help but it’s a start. These guys will definitely need a few regular season games to get back into as well. Might just have to scrap the season 😬.

5.) 19 Mar 2020 15:01:57
I think they are going to go with a 1 game format for the playoffs. So instead of 4 games win if you win that 1 game your going to the next round. They probably going to go with how the standings are right now so that sucks for the teams that were clost enough to maybe catch up but it is what it is.

6.) 19 Mar 2020 15:57:25
I can't see a 1 game format for this. 5 games seems realistic. And I agree with Ebs . They are going to need a few games to get ready. Also read about some 24 team format. Now for those 8 who would be lucky to get in, that I could possibly see a 1 and done. or mini 3 game series. who knows. Other issues are going to be getting the venues. the air travel, the lodging. this stuff takes a lot of time to plan. so it will be interesting

However, until all the other issues in the world are solved, I guess we just won't know. unfortunately this could last for a long time.

7.) 20 Mar 2020 16:53:34
If the league isn't back practicing as teams buy July 1st I think it will be " No Stanley Cup awarded due to Coronavirus"

8.) 21 Mar 2020 09:10:19
Let’s just wait and see and everyone concern themselves with staying healthy and safe instead.

9.) 21 Mar 2020 15:30:47
I agree Chirp, it's just nice however to take our minds off this crisis, even for a few minutes .

But ya, in the big picture. hockey really doesn't matter at the moment.



25 Feb 2020 03:04:22

Toronto sends

Anaheim sends
1st in 2021.


1.) 25 Feb 2020 07:33:28
Big no from Anaheim lool Gibson and Lindholm > Matthews, Manson, Steel, 1st > Andersen



23 Jul 2019 02:51:43
Montreal and Edmonton deal

Habs send Hudon, Lindgren and 2nd

Oilers send Pulllyourweiner.. whatever his name is??


1.) 23 Jul 2019 18:12:07
Why do the Oilers need Lindgren?
For the fourth time, Oilers do NOT NEED DEPTH GOALIES. WE HAVE PLENTY.

2.) 23 Jul 2019 20:47:00
They also have too many depth forwards.

3.) 24 Jul 2019 00:03:11
TyBa4? One more time please?

4.) 24 Jul 2019 02:50:55
Sure Soso, just for you because you asked nicely.
O I L E R S D O N ‘ T N E E D G O A L I E D E P T H.

5.) 24 Jul 2019 14:46:01
Lol. Thanks buddy.



21 May 2018 22:18:57
Probably way off.. and of course I want to see him on my Habs.. but what about a Buffalo and NYI blockbuster...
Tavares on a sign and trade plus a small add due to age difference.
For Jack Eichel.

I'm not a huge Eichel fan due to his personality..I think his ego may be to much to have someone who is coming in the league with even more hype than he did.. Dahlin..
Buffalo gets a strong leader in Tavares..reunited with Okposo.. NYI still gets to have a Star center..


1.) 22 May 2018 01:48:53
Islanders won’t be adding anything extra.

2.) 22 May 2018 03:08:38
No way buffalo touches this Eichel is 20 and is almost as good as Tavares. I’d trade Austin Mathews for Jack Eichel as a leafs fan. And I wouldn’t trade Mathews for Barzel and a player you could get for free in Free agency. In two seasons Eichel will out produce Tavares career highs I’m calling it right now. With that being said if I were buffalo I’d trade O’rielly and sign Tavares to be the 2 c.

3.) 23 May 2018 16:37:28
I wouldn’t trade Matthews for Eichel first off. Secondly, buffalos ownership has committed to Eichel with that massive contract and has apparently allowed him atleast some input on firing and hiring or coaches and gm lol they don’t do that and then trade him 10 months later.



17 Jan 2018 04:51:28
If I'm Garth Snow, does the emergence of Barzal change my way of thinking????
I have been obvious about my desire for the Habs to land Tavares.. ya it's still a crap shoot... however... if I am Snow.,, I build around Barzal.. I don't let Tavares get to July 1st, but trade him for top dollar.. yes !! I want my Habs to get him , however.,I have 2 trades.. who ya take.
FOR Tavares

2nd 18,× 2(both)
1st 2019

These deals are both on the contingent that he signs 8x11 at 88 once he is traded.


1.) 17 Jan 2018 06:08:49
I take Horvat, Joulevi, Van 2018 1st over
Galchenyuk, Lindgren, Juulsen, two 2018 2nds, 2019 1st.

2.) 17 Jan 2018 06:11:16
Horvat is the most proven of all this. I think Juolevi has more value than pretty well all the Montreal pieces. And that Van forst this year should be pretty good.

Make he Montreal 1st 2018 not 2019 and it changes it a bit. It still prefer Van package over Montreals.
Mainly becaUs Horvat is proven and the other two pieces are more potential than any of MTLs.

3.) 17 Jan 2018 07:29:26
Uhhhh no you definitely don’t build around barzal you keep Tavares who is a top 10 player in the world lol. I see your reasoning but no way, I really do think he will resign in New York and imo neither of these trades are enough to get him (im talking value wise not as he’s a UFA) .

4.) 17 Jan 2018 08:09:31
Good points both Edmonton Boyz.

McJesus. yes Tavares is top 10, however, resign him for 8 years, puts him at what? 35? Or Barzal, focus on him, Bellows. ext. In 8 years both are in middle of Prime. I get what your saying

Wouldn't surprise me however, at end if career. m Barzal, more points than John Tavares
I really like Tavares, however, I often wonder, is he a Superstar. or Really good player. there is a diffdefence.

5.) 17 Jan 2018 14:02:55
I think Mtl shouldn’t sign Tavares
We already have bad contracts

Not to mention that 80 million goalie.

6.) 17 Jan 2018 15:12:37
I would say having that 80 million dollar goalie is a good reason to get an 80 million dollar centreman to go with your 80million dollar defensman because they are so committed now, after those moves and trading sergachev, deciding to go another direction now will set any rebuild back many years before it even begins.

7.) 17 Jan 2018 16:19:33
Too much for a rental because Tavares would never re-sign in Van.

Montreal would be better off to just snag him at UFA time w/ o losing assets.

8.) 17 Jan 2018 17:54:40
I think one of the reasons Tavares might stay in NYI is the emergence of Barzel. Not saying it's the only reason, but it's one of many and it does help a little.

9.) 17 Jan 2018 18:20:36
Tavares is a superstar now, and you don’t trade those players. Barzal emerged as a very fun player to watch this year but tbh he had to play two extra years in junior! He wasn’t projected to be this good but unreal player for islanders now his skating is phenomenal but you still don’t trade Tavares. You keep him and you have him, Barzal, bellows, and all those other guys who will come up.

10.) 17 Jan 2018 22:49:03
I agree you try to keep Tavares if you can, and as much as he is saying the right things about wanting to stay, he isn’t holding any talks. As a management team you want to show patience with him and respect him by at the same time the deadline is coming and if he isn’t going to stay, you have to make a plan. You can’t have the best player your team has seen in decades walk for nothing.

15 May 2022 04:57:38
And that is why Matthews isn't even in the same class as McDavid.
What a game by McDavid.


1.) 15 May 2022 06:15:50
McDavid is definitely the best player in the game. I don’t think Matthews is too far behind him though. Anyways, another disappointing finish for the leafs, changes need to be made. I think Keefe is ok, but I’d take Trotz or Tortorella in a heartbeat. Maybe moving one of the big for out? I’m a Flames fan for a few weeks. I’ll even cheer for the Oilers if I have to. The cup needs to come home to Canada.

2.) 15 May 2022 12:12:05
Matthews can't lead a team. He doesn't show up when it counts. Mitch Marner was the guy who showed up for Toronto.
Trade Matthews is the thing the Ĺeafs need to do. Get a big haul

To Arizona

To Leafs
2022 3rd overall.

I agree about the cup coming back to Canada, would be nice. Until Matthews is and Shanahan and Dubas and Keefe are gone, I can't cheer for the Leafs ever.
For some reason they have an arrogance about them, they remind me of the New York Yankees in baseball.
I used to cheer for the Sundin lead Leafs. Unless it was against Montreal of course.

3.) 15 May 2022 16:06:40
Can you **** off with your hate for 5 minutes Sosa? He had 9 points in 7 games, and was hitting everyone. Your hate for American players is a joke, you’d be sucking Matthews off if he was on the habs.

4.) 15 May 2022 19:07:37
Haha, oh my, did I hit a nerve lol

Anyway, I don't mind some Americans, I like Caufield, Boeser, Slavin, and even have a lot of respect for Your American Goalie Campbell. Matthew is an over rated creep who tries to scare women by forcing himself into there vehicles. That's the hero you want your young Leafs fans to look up to.?
Anway, I see i hit a nerve about your boy, that's how od react if someone talked about my girl. so.
. maybe your blowing him? Haha.

5.) 15 May 2022 22:19:13
What hits a nerve is when homers like yourself, are so bias that you can’t appreciate talent. You judge everything by the jersey they wear. You’ve been crying about Matthews since he came into the league. Your team signed someone quite controversial, no? Of course you like Caufield, he’s the best American born hockey player of all time. Every analyst in the league would have Matthews in their top 5. You have NEVER heard me praising leaf players, so no he is not my boy. To say Matthews can’t lead a team, shows your lack of hockey knowledge. Or you simply didn’t watch the games. Matthews and Marner were the 2 best players in the series, for either team. They lost game 7 by one goal to back to back champs. If you watched the series, you know damn well it could’ve went either way.

6.) 16 May 2022 06:01:38
Also. don't think Caufield is the best. don't put words in my mouth. Never once said that. You got to get over your loss man. Wow. I know Leafs fans are sore, but your an embarrassment. Marner was good. Campbell was good., Nylander was good Tavares was meh. ans Matthews was good, but not great. he's paid to be great. MacKinnon, McDavid, they were great! . he's not on there level. he's a great regular season player, sure. but he gets way to much credit from Homer's like you and TSN and Sportsnet. How about some love for a guy like Huberdeau, or Kaprizov., Josi. those guy are more Hart deserving than Matthews.

Anyway, I also don't agree with the Mailoux draft.
But, go get help, you obviously don't have anything else going for you if your this upset over a post on the internet.

7.) 16 May 2022 10:39:49
I’m calling you out because we’ve been listening to you bash American hockey players for years. I was exaggerating about Caufield. Give it time, he wears the right colors. What makes you think I’m sore? Have you ever heard me say anything after a leaf loss? Toronto lost to Columbus and Montreal, that would be something to be sore about. I also don’t think you know what a homer is, I’m usually critical of leaf players. Nylander had some good laps around the offensive zone, but he wouldn’t stop in the corner because there was no nail salon. I already said that McDavid is the best in the league. The rest of the players you mentioned are great too, so is Matthews. See how that works? Maybe you don’t remember all your late night rants.

8.) 16 May 2022 14:44:47
These claims that you make about Mathews are made with basis. You can’t compare what 1 player did to what other players did in a totally different series without intense study. It is much easier to compare what he did to Kucherov, Point and Stamkos. Mathews to me was much better then all 3. For me he was the best 2 way player in these playoffs so far.

9.) 16 May 2022 14:55:26
Well if you'd like to bring up the past about my lafe night drunken rants. Sure. be my guest. I however did go get help for what was ailing me, alcoholism.
I just gave your boy some credit, like I said, great regular season player, but what has he done to be considered this great leader of a team?
This was all about how McDavid is on another level than Matthews, i'm sorry if I upset you about this. Hey I don't like lots of players, not just Matthews, can't stand Chirs Kreider either, or Ovechkin.

10.) 16 May 2022 16:48:40
All I said was that “maybe you don’t remember all of your late night rants. ” I’m glad you got help for that. We all know McDavid has another level. Your original post didn’t need to include Matthews, but it’s your go to. I responded nicely, agreeing with you about McDavid. I wasn’t bitter about a loss at all. That wasn’t good enough, you continued to rant. McDavid is the only one who can put the team on his back, it doesn’t make everyone else overrated. But, even the almighty McDavid couldn’t find playoff success for the last 4 years, until now. It’s a team game. I really hope Matthews goes to Montreal in 2 years, and we’re both here to talk about it.

11.) 16 May 2022 16:53:24
Danault was a beast on D and his line was a threat on O, VB. Definitely one of the best two way guys in the first round.

12.) 16 May 2022 16:57:47
McDavid doesn't get the credit he deserves for his 2 Way play, which when he needs to play on the defensive side, he is really good at it.
Hard to play D when you constantly have the puck in the opposing zone. I will give credit to Matthews for his ability to strip pucks.

13.) 16 May 2022 18:38:48
I agree Sosa, but he also couldn’t lead the oilers anywhere for 4 years. My point is that it’s on the leafs, not just Matthews.

14.) 16 May 2022 20:38:45
Its deffinetley on more than just him. Not living in Toronto area, I just get so sick of listening to how great Matthews is. Sure he's a good player, but c'mon Toronto media, there's others just as good or better. Supposed to be a National Sports Network.
My reason for bringing Matthews up, was after watching both game 7s. it was quite clear, who is the MVP. I think Matthews is getting way to much hype for his 60 goal season. yes , he had a great year. But the true meaning of the trophy, well where would Oilers be without McDavid.? In the lottery, no offense to Draisitle. Josi was maybe more valuable than both of those guys to his team.
Anyway, God forbid he ended up in Montreal. Haha. Anyway. I've actually always respected your comments and opinions. So I'm just going to end this lil disagreement here.

15.) 16 May 2022 20:40:35
And. I like to fire you Leaf fans up. its actually all in fun. This site has been pretty stale the last year or so. miss the days of all the old boys that we don't see anymore haha.

16.) 17 May 2022 10:58:00
I’ve always respected your comments as well Sosa. Sorry for blowing up on you. McDavid or Josi should get the MVP, Seider the Calder. I’m sure a couple of the Oiler fans will be back soon. When the oilers are winning, they like to talk hockey.



23 Apr 2022 04:35:43
Sad day for Habs fans, and NHL fans alike with the passing of Guy Lafleur.
Was such an electrifying player on the ice, and gentleman off it
Was honored to meet him once in Nanaimo BC after and Old-timers game,. Was such a class act.
Was my first favorite player..

RIP Flower


1.) 26 Apr 2022 01:45:05
Extremely sad news on Guy Lafleur.
Being a Habs fan was because of Guy Lafleur.

Remember playing street hockey and pretending to be Guy Lafleur. Sadly missed.
He was also my favourite player of all time.



19 Apr 2022 04:43:37
In 20+ years .. who had the best career.

Lafrennier vs Caufield
Mathews vs MacKinnon
Makar Vs Fox
Zegras vs Byfield.
Hart vs Askarov

Bedard vs Michkov


1.) 22 Apr 2022 15:58:04
1. This one is probably the most risky. Caufield will be a good player. Lafranier could surprise us all and be a great player or he could be a bust. I’m going Caufield.

2. Mathews without a question. There are very few goal scorers as good as him.

3. I’m going with Makar here I think his offensive game is on a level we have not seen since Coffey ( who I never seen play )

4. Zegras bigger players take longer to develop and. Tend to be under appreciated.

5. Goalies are Vodoo I doubt either will be anything special

6. Michkov for the same reason as Mathews.



05 Apr 2022 00:19:36
Who would ya rather have

Josi vs Hedman
Marchand vs P Kane
Fox vs Makar
Shesterkin vs Vasilevsky
Mathews vs MacKinnon vs Draisitle
Campbell vs Demko
Zegras vs Caufield

Young Crosby vs Current McDavid.


1.) 05 Apr 2022 13:23:30


2.) 05 Apr 2022 23:54:29
Probably would take the same as Memarcus but Shestekrin is doing very good on an inferior team. I think if he repeats then my choice changes there.

3.) 06 Apr 2022 15:39:42
I like memarcus list an would not change a thing.

4.) 08 Apr 2022 14:36:21

Kane and Marchand is almost a toss up, but I like Marchands 2 way profile more than kanes wizardry. Also as much as I dislike the Leafs Matthews is a beast.



30 Mar 2022 19:22:04
Sad to hear the passing of Eugene Melnyk. He did a lot to ensure the Senators stayed in Ottawa, if it wasn't for him, I don't believe they would have stayed.
I hope that all his work he has done will keep the Sens in Ottawa.

None of this works. Sorry. Until the Habs know what is going on with Price, there is no sense making goalie deals. Also, all if these pretty much favor Habs big time.
Not sure how Neiderieter was added, and you sign Smith, yet I don't see him in the line up.

Marcus, how is this a weak draft? Maybe no McDavid, but a lot of really good prospects.
Jersey would be wise to keep the pick. , as good as Scheifele is, he's at his peak, and will slowly ( not quite yet) start to slow down. he's needed more for a team that is in contention now. Maybe a team like Boston would be a good fit? They will need a number 1C maybe even as soon as next season.

Nj isn't going to want to upset there Star Jack by trading away his brother.
Also, can't see Habs trading away #1, especially in their own building. Unless its in some sort of deal to land an already established star.
Maybe people don't see Wright as a potential Superstar, but I think he will be just fine. He won't be on the same level as McDavid of course, but he could be a mix of Tavares with Bergeron. That's not to bad IMO.

It will be quite a task to have to handle MacKinnon and the boys. The one X factor ( well 2) will be how do the Oilers handle Makar and Byram. Byram is from my town, so I'll be cheering for him to be successful, just not to win the series lol.

Kulak was a good addition for the Oilers, he makes a good first pass and can skate well.
I think this will be a good series vs the Avalanche., . The whole team will have to be just as good as they were against the Flames. its deffenitley possible for them. When you have 2 guys who can competely dominate a team like McDavid and Draisitle can. however, MacKinnon is also capable of that. Will be fun to watch.

Ya Ebs, it was a close one. Although I was cheering for Edmonton, I wanted a game 6 lol, it could have went either way. if he didn't touch it at all it woulda went in! So that one is going to sting for them and Coleman for awhile i'm sure.
I think where the depth thing comes in is maybe D? And deffenitley in net. Who woulda thought though that Smith was the better of the 2 goalies, and he wasn't great. just was there when needed I guess
Maybe the Oilers don't get enough credit for the depth? . i'm not to sure.

Before this series started, I picked Flames in 6, and wasn't going to be suprised if it went only 5. Markstrom definitely let the team down, but so did a lot of other key players. Tkachuk, Toffoli seemed almost invisible in game 5. Seems like the Flames weren't able to play there game against the Oilers.
Also, have to give the Oilers credit, Wow, what a series they played. Draisitle and McDavid, Kane, Hyman, Bouchard. RNH, these guys played really well, while the 1st 2 i mentioned were about as dominant as any 2 players i have ever seen.

My?, what does everyone think of Colemans disallowed goal?




Click To View This Thread

23 May 2022 03:42:56
Ya, I agree. Although he is slowing down, he's still a good player., deffenitley coulda got a lot more on the market.
Good signing by Dubas.
