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.

Can Craig Button do more color over Mike Johnson please!!!...


1.) 20 Apr 2021 16:42:11
Is he good Sosa? We don’t have him often for leafs but he is on TSN radio a lot here. I find him knowledgeable and has some unique insight into the business side as an exGM but find he can be annoying too.

And I also like MJ as a radio guest but haven’t heard much of him as a colour guy.

2.) 20 Apr 2021 17:35:32
MJ does lots of color for the Habs on TSN. , and I can't stand him lol. So, for me was just refreshing hearing someone else. he's no Ray Ferraro. But ill take Button over Johnson anyway. ill even take John Garrett over him.

3.) 20 Apr 2021 19:24:19
Johnson does a better job to be honest it’s just his voice is more annoying.

4.) 20 Apr 2021 19:24:46
I’ll take Sergio momesso over any of them.

5.) 20 Apr 2021 20:27:39
Johnson for me is nails on a chalkboard haha.
I miss Harry Neale haha.

6.) 20 Apr 2021 22:30:10
Ferraro is the best color guy by far, love him and Miller as a duo.

7.) 21 Apr 2021 01:23:02
TSS. I agree. IMO, Miller shoulda been the hier to Bob Cole.



20 Apr 2021 02:13:47
Congratulations to Patrick Marleau..

Awesome career.. however, is it Hall of Fame worthy?


1.) 20 Apr 2021 07:09:46
It will be based solely on the fact he is the all time leader in games played.

2.) 20 Apr 2021 14:35:31
Interesting discussion Sosa. I could see both him getting in and not however, It’s not like he’s Matt Cullen. I mean Cullen had 1500+ games as a 3rd/ 4th liner. So for Arguments sake, say he got to 1678, he’s definitely not a hall of famer (has Cups though) . So I wouldn’t say Marleau would only get in based on GP record

Marleau is pushing 600 goals, 1200 pts, multiple time all star, multiple Olympic gold medals, World Cup gold, 15 time 20G scorer, 6 time 30G scorer, and a 44G year.

I’m not 100-% sold on if he should be in or not, but if he gets in, he has merit outside of simple longevity.

3.) 20 Apr 2021 17:38:21
Ya i'm on the fence about him. He has had a really good career, can't deny that. to bad no cup however.
I think there are better guys than him that aren't in., also guys that aren't as good, that are. Lol.

4.) 20 Apr 2021 19:27:11
So marleau breaks a 40 plus year old record thst one of the absolute legends of the game held. and Cullen didn’t. how is that even a comparison?

5.) 20 Apr 2021 21:47:16
I think You know what I mean. You saying Patrick Marleau would only get in the Hall of Fame because he played the most games is diminishing a great career. If a guy like Cullen did it and got in the hall of fame with bottom 6 numbers, then I’d agree with you. If a guy with Marleaus accomplishments gets in the Hall, it’s not simply because he existed for a lot of games. Almost 600G and 1200PTS. I hope you can understand that one. My apologies.

6.) 21 Apr 2021 00:24:32
And yeah Sosa. I get exactly what you mean. It’s so unpredictable. The other thing I’ll say to you that I hope doesn’t spark an unnecessary debate with someone else is that character seems to matter in these inductions, right or wrong. I like the HOF, in any sport to be about how great a player was on the field/ ice/ Ring etc. But guys that aren’t likeable or out spoken seem to be left out or made to wait a LONG time more often than not.

I’ve never heard anyone have a single bad word to say about Patty and he’s never said or done anything that could be considered even mildly controversial so I think that will work to his advantage. Not saying it should, but it seems to often work that way.

7.) 21 Apr 2021 02:54:09
Cullen didn’t do it so we will never know but if he had broke the record then I say he would have been in the hall too. there are much better players then marleau who are not In there. and he wouldn’t be either if not for for being the all time leader in games played so because solely of this I say he gets in.



20 Apr 2021 01:14:31
Romanov has IMO exceeded expectations this year.. He won't be a top point guy, but I see him as the second coming of Vladimir Konstantinov.. with a bit more offense..
He will in the future get some Norris votes.. may not win one.. but he is going to be a good one for years.


1.) 20 Apr 2021 07:12:20
His point production will increase won’t be a paul Coffey for sure but he will put up decent offensive numbers. his frame is so solid. when he hits you, you know it.



17 Apr 2021 22:06:45
Habby.. or any anyone..
What do you think is wrong with the Habs??? I'm watching this game against the Sens, and they just aren't good at all.. I prefer the way they played under Julien.. is it time for me to just admit this team isn't that good.. I thought at the beginning of the year this team looked like a contender....
I think the pieces are there to be a strong team, but something is jus wrong..
I don't buy the excuse of to many games in a short period of time.. lots of teams are dealing with a crappy schedule..


1.) 18 Apr 2021 14:37:48
My opinion, they’re a really competitive team that works hard but lacks game breakers. Looks like possibly they have a cpl on the cusp with Suzuki and hopefully Caufield. But when you’re a team that competes with better teams purely off your will and fight, and then lose a guy like Gallagher who is the engine of that game, it hurts.

I think teams that play like that but don’t have the game breakers will be tough outs for other teams but I don’t see them winning. The Islanders are a team built like that (outside of Barzal) have a ton of guys that work so hard every night but they also have Barry Trotz running systems. They’re the only team I see winning without some big star power.

2.) 18 Apr 2021 14:58:17
Unlike every other team who has success Montreal since the early 1980s have tried and roll 4 lines every game. now in that span they did win two cups but in large part it was due to the fact they had the best goalie in the world to bail them out and the fact that it was helluva lot easier to score goals so the advantage of having the best goalie and playing against everyone else who didn’t was a much larger advantage at that time. Right now if you look at the teams who are tops in the league and at least the majority of the cup champions since they all had a top line who played much more then everyone else. With this approach do even matthew’s and mcdavid put up the numbers they do now in Montreal? I don’t think so. considering instead of playing 22 mins a game they would be playing 18mins and on top of that would only be out for half a power play each time. Montreal will never have a point per game player again if they continue this way they play like they have 3 3rd lines and when was the last time a 3rd line player had 82 points?

3.) 18 Apr 2021 15:04:02
In order to play this way they need at least 2 more goal scorers in the lineup toffoli and Anderson were great adds and maybe Caufied can be a miracle for them soon, but if all 3 can be 25 to 30 goal scorers going forward you still need at least one more.

4.) 19 Apr 2021 18:13:04
Ya, hopefully the philosophy in Montreal changes one of these years. The last time this team had a game breaker was who? Guy Lafleur? that's a whole different era. Lol.

5.) 19 Apr 2021 19:28:36
Well they have had some b level game breakers since then bobby smith mats naslund richer damphousse kovalev. but again they were alll forced to share the prime scoring minutes with another line or two. For this system to work you need a solid goal scorer on every line.

6.) 19 Apr 2021 20:26:30
I get that Habby. so with what we have, who would you like to see get 21 22 mins a night?
Also, maybe its just me, but Eric Staal, I believe has made the team worse., i'd prefer to have Jake Evans out there. Staal just doesn't fit with this team IMO.

7.) 20 Apr 2021 01:53:41
Until you can put a goal scorer on each line you just have to stack your top two lines with who you think are your best players and continue to put them out there in places they can produce offense and keep playing them there, mcdavid doesn’t get put down on the 3rd or 4th line if he doesn’t have a good game. like the habs would do with kk or Suzuki. Stall doesn’t look good yet but I wouldn’t give up on him yet.



17 Apr 2021 20:01:04
I remember a few years ago, on this site, I said that Panarin was only good because of Kane, and that once in Columbus he'd be a 50 point guy.. WOW was I wrong...this guy is awesome

The Rangers have some scary good peices on this team. along with Panarin,. Buschnevich looks like he's becoming a star, Zabinawhatever , can score at will( against Philly) Lafrennier and Kakko growing.. and the emergence of Adam Fox as a star, this team may become a fun team to watch. For Rangers fans.

Anyway. What I originally wanted to know

Who would ya take

Panarin vs Kucherov( healthy)


1.) 18 Apr 2021 10:53:23
Paniran for sure IMO.

2.) 18 Apr 2021 14:59:37
I think you have to go with a healthy kucherov but it’s about as close as it gets really.

I've said it a few times., but I think LA should be looking at Eichel. They have the top prospects to get this deal done., I mentioned Byfield in an earlier post someone had made.
Obviously i don't know Eichel, but I have a feeling being in a Small market Canadian city isn't going to make him any happier than Buffalo.

Umm how is Eichel a 100 top player of all time? He may get there, but sure isn't there yet VB.

I wouldn't do this if I were Sabres.

Id look at LA, have a deal in place to bring Byfield to Buffalo.
In order to get Eichel, your going to need to bring in an A+ prospect .

I've always been a huge Price supporter, , but even i know he's not worth the money he gets now, and like Habby said, is a beat up shell if his former self . i'd hate to see him go, but this just isn't working, and Weber has looked tired lately.,

I still want to believe that he can be the " man" and lead the Habs to the cup, but his days of being the most dominant goalie in the game are a few years removed now. As Habs fans, let's just hope he has one or 2 playoff length Supernatural runs. plays the way he did a few years ago.

If ya don't like his proposal., why comment?
Due to age, i'd not want to do see KK go for Kopitar. at, 20 I think KK is just starting to scratch the surface of his potential.
