I think Giroux has a 70 to 80 point season this year. The hip and abdomen surgery took a lot out of him last year and you know he was hurting the previous year too. I also look at guys who've had the same surgery and their numbers were bad in the season immediately following […]
I could possibly see Weal not being around, but Leier and Laughton will stay as their skillsets are perfect for the heavy defensive assignments. I think you're looking at the beginning of a very important fourth line in that these guys won't only be just checkers, they'll also be relied on for offense and special […]
I think i would try and trade him next offseason and paying 2mill of his cap space instead of buying him out next year. If you buy him out: SEASON SALARY INITIAL CAP HIT ACTUAL COST SAVINGS BUYOUT CAP HIT 2018-19 $1,375,000 2019-20 $1,125,000 2020-21 $1,875,000 2021-22 $1,875,000

If Holland was smart, he would hoard the 4 players listed in the link below (a nice read btw if you have not seen it), plus AA, Larkin and Mantha. That is 7 untouchables, some because of NHL talent, some just because you don't know what you have, but it could be really good. Everyone […]
July 25: A T-ird wins gold Once again, the T-irds have more off-season news. Defenceman Kyle Becker helped Canada win gold at the Maccabiah Games, the "Jewish Olympics". There was a 5-team round-robin, where Canada went 4-0-0 to place 1st. In the final Canada beat USA 7-2 for gold. Russia beat Israel for bronze, and […]
Its gonna grow on me maybe. The more I think about it, I'm okay with this. the 4.3 for one year would not have been good. But getting him for 6 years at 4 may not be too bad at all as he's still getting better.
