If this is the cost for Vatanen then I'm happy we never traded for him.


Vatanen has sucked this year, too.

Henrique for Vatanen seems about right to me, second line center for a puck moving top 4 D.

Neither my NHL app nor the web site has any scores or links to watch games. I hate them.

TheScore is the best one for me.
As long as you avoid the "news" section for each sport. The titles of articles seem like ones id see on boredz.

I still think it's hilarious that Edmonton could have come out of the 2015 draft with Barzal and McDavid, or that Boston could have had Barzal and Kyle Connor but instead the Oilers opted for Griffin Reinhart and the Bruins took: Zborill, Debrusk and Senyshyn. :donger:

Jury is still out on the Bruins picks man. All three will get NHL looks and nothing about them says they won't contribute.

That's fine, but none of them have impact player upside whereas Barzal and Connor already look like impact players, and were the consensus picks at the time so it's not really a hindsight thing either.

I wanted the Leafs to draft Barzal.

I recall Hunter talking about Barzal in the same conversation as Marner at 4th overall. Some scoffed.

But I don't think they drafted Tyler Biggs either.

Don't remember that, it was more of a pick outside the top 5 for me. I always have a bias toward pass first centers.

How serious he was is open to question. I can't seem to dig it up, but it was an offhand but unprompted remark during an interview about the draft. Hunter said something like, "and of course there's the Barzal kid too."

I found it. It was a Leafs Lunch interview and he was asked if there was any bias toward Marner at 4:

We do what’s best for the organization. That’s the first thing. Whoever the best player is we will take. There’s other players, too – Lawson Crouse, Noah Hanifin, Pavel Zacha, Mathew Barzal .. Barzal’s been injured all year and he hasn’t got the accolades he should. I saw him last week and he’s very impressive also.


He didn't say "kid", but Babs probably did.

Just watched the clip of McClellan having a practice freak out. I can't see how he doesn't get fired in the next 15 games. He's outing players in the media, yelling at practice etc. That doesn't fly long with pros

Vegas' record is 11-2-0 at home and 6-7-1 on the road.

Why would they have such a strong advantage at home........
