    Too far from the rink to throw my hat. My hatred of the Wild is reaching Twins 02-10 lengths.

    Offense is really showing out of late. The last thing the rest of the league wants to see is the Hawks putting up 5 spots every night as we move into the homestretch... :panic:

    Been hilarious seeing meatballs complain about Toews's production all year, as if he wouldn't turn it on eventually.

    Can't go 100% for 82 games; there's no point to it.

    I like your nickname for that line, "STP"

    Much better than PTSD, although that might be what the opposition calls it :laff:

    I'm not sure it'll ever get that bad for me. They'd need to win a playoff series and even then it's not close.

    And the Hawks can win up there - so much of our Twins hatred was based around that fucking Dome and their style of play due to it.

    I guess we're the Twins in this scenario...but with rings.

    Not sure I like this move. Why upset chemistry just at the time this team is starting to gel?
    I really liked Hinostroza on the bumslayer line. He gave us speed we have not had since we got rid of Viktor Stalberg & Nick Leddy.

    I don't have a problem with it. Could catch lightning in a bottle like they have with Handzus and Panik, who were consistent scratches with their previous teams.

    Could also be exposed in the expansion draft if they QO him.

    So is the NHL going to stay at 31 teams or eventually add a 32nd?
  33. y2chae

    And does the NHL really need to expand? 30 teams seems fine. It's good enough for MLB and NBA.

    They're waiting for Seattle to get their shit together.

    And, nobody needs to do anything. But, there are markets out there capable of supporting a team, and the owners like splitting $500 million.

    Baseball is maxed out market wise, so I don't see expansion happening. Not really comparable to the NHL or NBA, that can survive in much smaller areas. The NBA could go to 32 with little problem and will expand soonish (see: line 1) - just what that league needs, more bottom feeders. Don't know why we need to compare the 3

    Well the problem I have with expansion, obviously is that it dilutes the teams and therefore the league. Now, of course adding 2 teams to a league of 30 isn't that drastic but it will as you say, add more bottom feeders and bring the overall talent pool down.

    There's so much talent wasting away in the A. I don't think it'll be hard to fill in the gaps.

    NBA needs to get smaller if anything. Quality of play is terrible. 3-4 teams every year can win title 1 being the team with Lebron.

    NBA is entertaining af atm, especially the Western Conference, and I'm not a big basketball fan.

    The number of elite pg alone is amazing.

    9-1 and 4 goals/game in February. Not bad at all. March will be a meat grinder starting on the 9th with no more than 1 day off the rest of the season

    Rosy and Tootoo both extended - both at under 925k and can be exposed in the expansion draft.

    No chance Hartman is exposed now

    Good strategy here. Maybe a move involving TVR is going to happen now that Rozsival can be exposed for the expansion draft? Also looks like they are making it so Vegas will pick Kruger?

    Agreed. I love what he brings to the team. He's the only guy that can get that high percentage of defensive zone starts and come out with such good defensive stats. He has not been as good as the past, but has been hurt and I would definitely count on him to produce when it counts. That being said, I'd understand if he became a cap casualty. Nobody else is really an option to move.

    McNeill and a conditional pick for oduya, half cap retained.

    They can't afford Kruger going forward. He's as good as gone.

    Conditional 4th and McNeill for DuDu. Even if he barely plays it's worth it.

    Hammer to the IR as well.

    Keith-Seabrook
    Oduya-Hammer
    Kempny/TVR-Campbell
    Rozsival

    Great depth for the playoff run, assuming TVR is still here.
