How do I shot puck!?

I'm pretty curious to see how Stevie does the next few years. He's got a good resume with Tampa, they were lousy when he got there.

Going off the board for Seider seemed weird last year, but sounds like he's shaping up to be a great prospect.

Big difference is he already had a #1 pick when he got there in Stamkos. Detroit doesn't have a #1 center on most teams or #1 d on any team in the league

Dylan Larkin seems cool, and you should trade him to the blue jackets for a functional goalie + a josh anderson

Larkin and Eichel will gently caress off from their teams together and form a 1-2 punch somewhere

Turns out, I was right about everything I said

As Quinn Hughes wins the Calder this year, Filip Zadina will finish the year with one more goal in Grand Rapids (9) than Detroit (8).

Hughes also has a higher PPG in the NHL than Zadina has if you combine his AHL and NHL points

Hughes is amazing, but like all Canucks prospects the team is gonna tell him to bulk up over the summer for some reason. He'll come back 197lbs, lose all of his quickness and pick up a nagging injury that will kill his effectiveness forever.

It's just how it goes.

David Booth was a perfectly good hockey player until he was brutally murdered by Mike Richards.

I'm also surprised that nobody remembers that hit - it was almost as bad as Cooke on Savard.

Well, okay, I wouldn't be surprised if Booth didn't remember the hit.

I'm sure you can get minor cases of guys getting all the powerplay time in the world and having inflated numbers because of that but Larkin was a P/G player on an awful team last year, he's at least pretty good.

I follow the Blue Jackets because I'm from Ohio originally. I didn't get into hockey until I moved to NC, so the Canes are my #1 team.
