I've been off this site ever since Hockey got put on hold but I'm impressed that "St.LouisFan" has made such a big name for himself as a troll poster.

I know actual Blues fans have better ideas than what I've read on here but this one was too good not to bring up:

March 6th he stated that Pietrangelo is untouchable when he was denying that Thomas was untouchable. 5 days later he posted a trade throwing Pietro in WITH Thomas for Gudas and Vrana...

This is the difference between having a bias towards your favorite team vs. not knowing what the F you're talking about.

If the season is over, who are some of your guys' award winners and why?

Vezina
Hart
Calder
Norris
Jack Adams

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Mar 2020 22:33:05
Mine is

Vezina-Rask
Hart-Draisaitl (but should be Panarin)
Calder: Q. Hughes
Norris: Carlson
Adams: D. Tippett.

Agree0 Disagree1

24 Mar 2020 07:39:29
Hellebuyck
Draisaitl
Hughes
Josi
Jack Adams no idea, so I'll go with Cirelli for Selke ;)

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Mar 2020 16:20:48
@The_triplets
Yeah, Josi is a good one. I think I saw a stat that showed he has the most offensive zone entires in the entire league. (Yes including forwards)

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Mar 2020 05:44:10
Good point. And yeah, I loev Josi in general. He's also just 10 points behind Carlson (2nd in D scoring) by now. Gap was much larger to start the year, but I feel he makes up those 10 pts with his defensive play and play driving easily.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Mar 2020 19:12:08
Panirans +- is astonishing it show that it really isn’t a team stat. For that reason I’d give him my vote over drais. 1. Paniran 2.Drais 3. Mackinnon.

Agree0 Disagree4

26 Mar 2020 04:14:08
I agree with The Triplets 1000%

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Mar 2020 09:09:26
Norris: Petrol
Hart: MacKinnon
Calder: Makar
Vezina: Hellybuck
Selke: Bergeron
Adams: Keefe.

Agree0 Disagree6

29 Mar 2020 07:11:45
Petro? Keefe? Srsly?
Also, Bergeron is just a simple, lazy, generic pick smh.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Mar 2020 16:23:51
Vezina- Hellebuyck he’s the main reason why jets are still in the playoff hunt, apart from him the team hasn’t been great.
Norris- josi, like posted before josi has been consistent point producer he’s not far behind Carlson for points and is better than Carlson defensively on a weaker team
Calder- I think Hughes will win but I think Makar is more deserving. If it wasn’t for injuries this wouldn’t even be a debate, Makar was running away with it
Selke- Barkov. Bergeron isn’t the player he used to be, like said earlier he’s the lazy choice. Barkov is the new Bergeron and is one of the reasons panthers are in the hunt.
Hart- For me it’s either Panarin or mackinnon. The hart is for the player most valuable to his team. If oilers didn’t have draisatl they’d still have mcdavid and vise versa, if the rangers didn’t have parnarin they wouldn’t be anywhere near as decent as they are, he’s turned a bottom 6 center into a 60-70 Point top 6 center. Although the aves are s good team without mackinnon they’re not a top team without him.

Agree1 Disagree1

30 Mar 2020 07:07:22
Yes Petrol. He is a candidate this year. He will probably come 3rd but it's not like he is a long shot. And Keefe did a very good job on Leafs. At least I named someone. Not even mentioning someone is a copy out and lazy choice.

Agree0 Disagree1

30 Mar 2020 07:18:33
How figure Bergeron isn't the same he used to be? He had over 30 goals and almost a point a game player and +23. He might be a lazy choice but only because he makes it so easy to choose him.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Mar 2020 17:19:21
Bergeron isn’t the guy that drives his line anymore, he plays with pasta and Marchand. those 2 make him look better. This is not s knock on Bergeron, he’s just getting older. Barkov carries his Team, not just his line. If Barkov isn’t there huberdeau probably doesn’t put up the same numbers and the panthers aren’t where they are, granted they should be better but can’t get consistent goaltending. Point is Bergeron is still good but not Barkov good.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Mar 2020 18:56:20
Look up what the Selke trophy is awarded for. We aren't talking about the Hart or Ted Lindsay. We are talking Selke.

Agree0 Disagree1

30 Mar 2020 20:41:41
I agree with Mertle 100% I’m assuming by bottom 6 centre he is referring to Strome as he stepped up big time while Zibby was injured but if you are talking about Zibby he is a stud. One of the most underrated players in the league. He was the go to guy since being traded to the rangers ( before Paniran. )

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Mar 2020 21:43:13
I was referring to Strome VB. Louis Fan, I don’t know why you’re arguing with me, it’s purely my opinion that I think Barkov is the better two way player than Bergeron, Triplets mentioned Cierelli who is also a great defensive forward, you could put couturier in there too. point is there’s not a wrong answer there’s just opinion. My opinion is is that Bergeron isn’t the best defensive forward anymore, still good, just not the best. Don’t just say Bergeron because he’s been in the voting for the award the last 15 years.

Agree0 Disagree0

With the 2020 NHL season and playoff now cancelled, do you guys think next season might be cancelled as well?

Magic Marc? WTH are you talking about.? When was it cancelled?

What are Oiler fans early thoughts on Athanasiou?

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Mar 2020 21:19:09
He has more to offer than he has so far. I like that he is an RFA so we can potentially see how he’ll do with a true fresh start next season because I think he can get back to 20isj goals per season but to this point he’s been mediocre.

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Mar 2020 23:31:53
I have optimism since Holland has seen a lot of him. But from what I’ve seen he’s been a very perimeter player and hasn’t created a lot.

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Mar 2020 15:08:19
At best, I think he’s a 20 goal 40-50 point forward imo.

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Mar 2020 09:11:26
A 50 point player is a top line player on some teams in the league. Not the good ones. But 50 points would have led scoring last year on a few teams.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Mar 2020 17:28:22
Welp there goes the season

Agree0 Disagree6

12 Mar 2020 18:02:31
Not sure how they are going to end it. hopefully they get everything cleared up soon.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Mar 2020 15:53:01
According to Friedman if Mathews reached RFA status last year the Coyotes intended on offering him an 7 year 15 mil contract and the league knew this. i'm thankful for his contract after hearing this information.

Agree1 Disagree7

12 Mar 2020 17:42:54
Did he say a number? From what I’ve seen he just said he would’ve been offer sheeted.

Agree1 Disagree2

12 Mar 2020 18:40:10
Coyotes are a low budget team and contracts can only be a certain percentage of a teams budget. That sounds too high for the league to allow, off the top of my head. Vb making junk up again?

Agree3 Disagree3

13 Mar 2020 02:13:06
No go look at the quote he didn’t say 15 million he said league max which I believe is around 15 million I think it’s actually higher but either way it’s words of one of the most credible analysts in the hockey world.

Agree2 Disagree3

13 Mar 2020 06:55:41
Lmao, this doesn't make his contract better.

Agree2 Disagree3

14 Mar 2020 13:05:02
his contract is bad. but at least he's near the top of the league and scoring and is no longer over-hyped, right triplets?

Agree1 Disagree1

15 Mar 2020 07:16:06
Being very good doesn't automatically rule out over-hyped, so idk what your point is.
If he's top 10 in scoring, yet treated like he's on McDavid - or an all time goat level. yes, still overhyped.

Agree2 Disagree0

15 Mar 2020 11:55:06
Lmao. You tell yourself whatever you need to. Classic.
I also heard he only signed a 5 year deal to be a UFA sooner so if it’s not looking like Leafs will win a Cup he can go play in his hometown sooner.
Should have locked your superstars up for max 8 years like some idiot Chiarelli and other GMs did 🤷‍♂️.

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Mar 2020 18:49:25
hes no mcdavid, but he's proving to be the goal scorer he was projected to be, living up to the "over hype" at least statistically.

Agree0 Disagree3

16 Mar 2020 14:54:12
Superstars like Sekera, Poliout, Yakapov and Puljujarvi?

Agree0 Disagree1

12 Mar 2020 02:38:26
Pionk was a horse for the Jets tonight. Might have been a steal by the Jets….

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Mar 2020 12:35:27
Yeah, he has actually been much, much better than Ranger fans lead us to believe. Not as big or physical as Trouba but a better puck mover definitely.

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Mar 2020 15:12:57
When the Jets traded Trouba for Pionk and #1 pick I believed that the Jets lost the trade big time. However with the great play of Pionk, his age, reasonable contract and value to the team he has shown he alone was worth the trade for Trouba. Also the draft pick turned into Heinola who looks to be a keeper having played the 1st 8 games of the season where he recorded 5 points and averaged over 18 minutes per game. Only his physical size and the Jets history of keeping draft picks developing in the minors until they are over-ready stopped him from playing the entire season on the Jets. This trade set up the Jets backend nicely for the future.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Mar 2020 01:57:46
Any of you guys notice how poor Draisaitl is defensively?
I love the guy, and I'm an Oilers fan but he is been pretty terrible lately.

Agree1 Disagree3

12 Mar 2020 11:12:46
I haven’t seen a lot of Oilers games lately due to work but Drai is usually good. He was in good standing for the Selke til about mid-Dec and then the whole team went a bit wonky and he doesn’t seem to have returned to his better self.
So maybe “lately” he’s sucky at defence but as a whole I’d say he’s pretty good.

Agree2 Disagree1

12 Mar 2020 14:51:13
He tries for offence every single play and never makes the simple play. I think he’s capable of being a solid defensive player but he’s been giving the puck away way to often and rarely has the battle level to get pucks back. Not sure why Tippet hasn’t cracked down on it. It’s been going on for a while now IMO.
RNH has found that middle ground where he’s still one of the best defensive forwards in the league but is sill putting up points.

Agree1 Disagree1

13 Mar 2020 02:15:13
Let’s keep in Mind Paniran is +32 when talking about the Hart trophy where as Drais is -5.

Agree1 Disagree3

13 Mar 2020 06:56:57
Very good point, VB. IMO, we should hand out the Hart simply to the guy with the best plus minus since that's such a useful and great stat.

Agree4 Disagree2

14 Mar 2020 18:24:36
Well I think it’s pretty impressive that he has a much higher +- on a much worse team while being top 5 in scoring.

Agree1 Disagree2

12 Mar 2020 00:50:33
Burke through out the idea of 8 team playoffs instead of 16. It would allow them to push back playoffs. Thoughts? Do you think the NHL will cancel playoffs? Will the cap still go up considering lost revenue?

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Mar 2020 11:17:51
Doesn’t matter what they do, these playoffs will be with an asterisk no matter what if they cancel the rest of the regular season. And I say that knowing the Oilers are in the playoffs. It would be just that Oilers-esque to win the Cup in an asterisked season. Haha. Yet if the leafs won I’m sure the parade would go on as planned in spite of coronavirus and it would be called the greatest playoffs in sports history 😂

In any case this stupid virus is a bummer and hopefully it’s contained soon. Sports are the least of the worries these days.

Agree0 Disagree2

12 Mar 2020 14:54:26
Yeah there really is no good solution I just want to see the Oilers in the playoffs considering it’s been twice in 15 years! Lol.
