The media really comes down on this kid, especially in Winnipeg. He's the most talented player their franchise has and it feels like they're trying to run him out of town. I'm guessing Kane wouldn't be all that disagreeable.

The fact that he's played in at least 15 games every year doesn't instill confidence, actually. That's at least 15 games of punishment on his body right before he hits that 30-wall where most running backs drop off the face of the earth.

Nope city. If Shero wants another D-man, he'll trade for some under-the-radar player you never would think of, not a guy who could ultimately be auctioned off to the highest bidder. We're way more likely to get Douglas Murray or Mark Stuart than PK Subban.

When people talk about how great guys like Gates and Gronkowski are, I always think to myself that Randy Moss would be the best TE ever if they just listed him as such and didn't change his game at all.
It will always bother me that these "great" TEs today don't even play the TE position. They're just receivers.
