If we pick marner I hope we let him develop like Gudrreau and Johnson. Both 21-22 when they started with their NHl teams.

That one's tricky tho. Oil went to the finals in 05 and haven't been in playoffs since.

Blues fans are hammering their first line for disappearing in the first round two years in a row, and are hammering Hitch for his dump and chase hockey.

I've been reading Blues fans comments in the Post Dispatch. They call Pieterangelo 'Capt. Turnover'

A guy like Stone developed nicely in Ottawa. Possible rookie of the year honours at 22. Gaudreau a top rookie at 21. Multiple years of minor league development.

You're starting to see moves from Rielly now that he was able to do more easily in junior. The games I saw he had the ability in junior to basically be a fourth forward any time he wanted. I saw a few Dzone flaws at the time that he's improved on with the Leafs.

I live in Victoria and got to see him play junior before his draft and I wondered why more teams didn't have him higher, but I think he fell lower in the rankings because of his knee injury that year.

It wasn't unanimous among the Oilers brass. Apparently Katz had the hammer in that one.

He seemed to be adapting better the last part of this season from the games I saw. Not dominating, but in terms of figuring out the NHL game.

Hope so. I live out west and see a lot of Oiler games and it was scary how often Draisaitl was getting pounded in a lot of the games he played this year.

Needs a different mix of players there. He has the options to remedy the lineup.

Leafs actually got a first round pick in the Gilmour trade. Didn't give one up.

Their fans were pissed after their last season collapse (lost 14 of 18 including playoffs) and a lot of them are bringing that up in comments sections tonight.

Blues fans in full "burn it down" mode.

One of the nicer comments on Hitchcock: Watching the blues, they play extremely well structured hockey but I think that took away creativity/freedom from their forwards

The good old days when there was scoring. Somebody named Brad Smyth won the scoring championship with almost 130.

OK, just curious about what was talked about in a thread below.

How many first year players can we afford to have in the lineup each season over the next five years without destroying them?

Especially when the formula includes paying top players a max of 20% of the total cap. If it was a bit lower it might be a little easier to manoeuvre. Like, Kane and Toews will be raking in 21 mil combined next year.

I think this might be a better summer for player movement with a larger number of teams that seem to have reached their "best before" date. Lots of new GMs who will looking to make changes.

I agree with the spirit of the idea. I really don't want a team with 10 first time NHLers getting their asses kicked that early in their careers.
