Five 100 point seasons in the last 10 years for Trotz. Two for Carlyle and none since 2008, so ya he might have.

Last April Trotz was not resigned by Nashville. Last May Carlye was extended.

Ya, he's progressing better than I ever thought he would. And the higher the skill level of his linemates, the better he'll look.

McDavid is unbelievable at stripping the opposition of the puck. Half his scoring chances seem to come when he's steals the puck and takes it down the other way.

@Luke_R @Knights2Leafs LOL - I just meant neither McLellan or Hitchcock seem to accomplish much in the playoffs.  Getting there - okay.

What are our potential spots? 25th but we could move to 24th if some team with less regular season points than Nashville wins the Cup?

The Horvat goal was originally not called and was only declared a goal after time ran out and there was a 10 minute review. Really exciting night. Unfortunately the same night of the infamous Toronto - Boston game 7. As I left the Knights game incredibly pumped, we heard the Leafs were up 4 - 1 in the 3rd. What an incredible high.

And then I arrived home......

Since the Marlies are playing the Griffins, here's a Mark Hunter story. Andreas Athanasiou was in his second season with the Knights in 2012 and was showing an incredible amount of skill. He seemed like a bigger, faster verision of Kadri. He wasn't a team player and apparently had "character issues" At the end of the season the Knights didn't hesitate to trade him out of town (Barrie) for draft picks.

That very next year Barrie and London met in the OHL final. Barrie was up 3 - 1 in games and Athansiou played a big part in building up that lead. The Knights came back to take it to a game 7 and Bo Horvat scored with less than a second to go for London to win.

They will try to work with problem players like Schremp and Aliu but won't hesitate to get rid of their problems.

Yeah, firstly I'm not sure the statement is true and even if it is, it likely has less to do with original thinking and more to do with resentments from his days as head of Player Safety.

Mind you, that might be more my bias than theirs.

Holy bejeepers, Willy Ny looks pretty sturdy and thick in HD. Size is not going to be a problem for this young man.

@Burtonboy @WereRiellyDoingThis @Mitch_S2 @Archie Vanlanda Quite true. London teams have always been built on speed and skill.  Obviously they've had some bigger players but generally (Patrick Maroon) but generally Knights teams have been smaller that the opposition.

The Knights gave up a ton to get Victor Mete last year - 5'8" dman, who was awesome by the end of his 16 year old year.

@traNsplantEdneWfie Both were hard contracts to trade at the TD so that doesn't mean much. Top 2 dmen were probably more valued than a top line RW.  The fact that there was interest for Dion at the TD is very positive in terms of his value going forward.

@Jon5200 He earned his vacation by getting rid of he the Clarkson contract.

Oh wait, he's the one that signed him and let Clarke MacA go. Thanks Dave and RC.

It was strange but I'm kind of guessing Gunnar's not complaining now. Same as MacA, Kulie, Grabbo. And Mason and Colborne.

Domi is likely going to be a good top 6 forward but Marner is a better player now as an 17/18 year old than Domi as an 19/20 year old. Marner raised Domi's numbers rather than the other way round.

True enough. I've seen Strome for a few games and even then it's hard to gauge much less a guy like Hanifin who I've never seen.
