Re: Thee Official 2022 Offseason Thread: Where Yzerman Is a Viking

Thought it was mentioned that Brassoit also had surgery? The Athletic said they basically only have Logan Thompson as the only signed goalie if Brassoit isn't ready. Either way many lols on how this is all playing out for them. Brassoit had surgery but the timetable for his return is super vague, I...

Patches tore his Achilles and is out six months after surgery

The best part of Huberdeau extending in Calgary is how it crushes the overly optimistic dreams of Habs fans who’d slotted him and PLD on their team

People like second-guessing the BLOT taking him over Seth Jones but I don’t think it was unreasonable at the time.

Re: Thee Official 2022 Offseason Thread: Where Yzerman Is a Viking

But again, you can't discount that it costs an extra year and an extra $1M for any high end player to sign in Calgary . That's the same deal that Gaudreau was offered to stay in Calgary, not what he got on the open market. That's probably true, and another thing they can't really control. In hindsi...

Re: Thee Official 2022 Offseason Thread: Where Yzerman Is a Viking

It's how much it costs to re-sign these players, but I keep thinking about Florida's motivation to trade Huberdeau in the first place, which was initially a surprise. Given that top salaries are more or less flat between stars, superstars, and the truly elite, which of these type of players you sign...

Re: Thee Official 2022 Offseason Thread: Where Yzerman Is a Viking

He's 29 now, with one year left, so he'll be 30 when this contract starts. He hasn't played a game for the Flames yet. I get the importance of signing him to an extension now instead of having to make a decision at the deadline, but this contract could age very poorly.

Good post on how Michigan's hockey program is fucked, especially the trainer being a creep, the coach being a retributive turd, and Strauss Mann leaving rather than be blackballed

Re: Thee Official 2022 Offseason Thread: Where Yzerman Is a Viking

I'm trying to figure out where he'd land. From a purely anecdotal standpoint, I never feared the Wings going against Brodeur like I did with Roy. I'd put Hasek and Roy ahead of Brodeur for that era, and that's not a hard decision. Stevens and Niedermayer had more impact. He has the same career SV% a...

Wikipedia: Gilmour became embroiled in a legal conflict. He was sued in August 1988 by the parents of a 14-year-old girl who alleged that Gilmour had sexually assaulted their daughter. His wife Robyne, the Blues organization and the team's president Jack Quinn were also named in the $1 million lawsu...
