Moved to Alberta in 1992
My Oilers buddies at work are going to be crazy on Monday. Happy for them, at least.
1 week, 2 days ago on Saturday Mashup: NHL Draft Lottery – Connor McDavid or Bust
Nylander and Brown have scored already.
@djamon Exactly. Imagine the disappointment owning a Mcdavid Sabre jersey and this should prove lottry is not fixed as Coyotes would have won otherwise.
Strombo gleeful. Yuck
Connor looks like he is going to throw up.
Too bad Lou
I think people will Hate it if the Oilers win since they have had 3 first overalls in a row recently.
Would love Strombo has to talk about the Leafs winning the lottery.
Leafs rebuild already well under way before this year.
Kadri 7th overall, Rielly 5th, Nylander 8th along with Gauthier 21st. and Percy 25th and some late round gems hopefully: Brown, Johnson and Loov. There are also some other interesting players like Leivo, Bibeau and Gibson.
2 weeks, 6 days ago on Monday Mashup: Bernier – “I’d love to stay here and for a long time obviously”
Hope Button is not offended if we take Zacha with our 25thish.
@MaxwellHowe @Coldincowtown @AlbertaMapleLeaf 2014 NHL Draft
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Leafs Notebook – March 10
@MaxwellHowe @Coldincowtown @AlbertaMapleLeaf Devils were rewarded the 30th pick as compensation for the previous penalty levied against them for the Kovalchuk signing. 29th to LA cup champs, 28th to NYI via TB via NYR (part of Martin St. Louis deal), Chi 27th pick final four, pick traded to SJ, mtl picked 26th othert final four team. Next dision winners all of whom where not in the final four in reverse order from points 25th Bos, 24th Ana (traded to Van), 23rd Col., 22nd Pitts. then the remaining playoff teams in reverser order to points and non playoff teams reverse order of points etc. except FLA won the lottery.
@MaxwellHowe @AlbertaMapleLeaf @Coldincowtown Go back to 2014 draft and see how that worked. Did something change??
@MaxwellHowe @AlbertaMapleLeaf @Coldincowtown The final four teams in the SC playoffs are the last four picks starting with 30th SC winners, 29th SC runner up the the other two final four teams depending on points, then division winners depending on points and then points earned in reverse order. Is this not correct?
@Coldincowtown Should have said Nashville has the most points outside of the division winners for the example I shared.
@Coldincowtown 14 teams missing the playoffs are in reverse order and lottery dependent on who wins the first pick. Next year (2016) the top 3 picks are drawn not just the first overall.
@MaxwellHowe @Coldincowtown What part?? I am quite sure this is how it works.
@Coldincowtown pick 30 SC champs, 29 runner up in SC finals, 28 and 27th are final four playoff teams with the most points of the two picking 28th, next up are division champs but these may be the teams in the final four or not. Again the most points of the division champs has the lowest pick. After this it is in reverse order of points back to pick 15. Hope this helps. As you can see, the division champs positioning in the draft is the wait to see who the final four are and did they win their division.
For example if Nashville has the most regular season points but does not win their division and the final four teams in the SC playoffs are all non division winners and does not include Nashville, the Leafs acquired pick would be no higher than 22nd.
@Xxxxxnew More bargains = more draft picks at the trade deadline.
Really want the Marlies to make the playoffs for the experience factor for the youth.
Booth and Frattin flanking a centre on the third line next year would be OK with me.
@Burtonboy @AlbertaMapleLeaf Change in the last CBA? College players do not have to be signed until they graduate. In fact they loose their NCAA eligibility if they do so.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on GDT: Game #67, New York Islanders at Toronto Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., SNO)
@Burtonboy @AlbertaMapleLeaf Don't European prospects have special exemption than the standard 2 years from their draft?
I believe the Leafs only have one SPC available with the Erixon waiver claim. Is it for O'Connor the goalie? Do the Leafs need to sign Andreas Johnson before the draft or because he is under contract for one more season in the SHL they do not?
@Nylanderthal @ingy56 Having said that, Lundquist, Miller etc. taken very late.
@Nylanderthal @ingy56 Tuukka Rask, Carey Price?
Polak's attempt at power lifting Reaves of St. Louis Saturday night could not have been good for a hernia.
@rustynail Sounds like he doesn't think he will be traded.
2 months ago on GDT: Game #61, Philadelphia Flyers at Toronto Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., TSN)
@HHT Brennan RFA Abbott UFA
@HHT Marlies PP needs help/ Will help young Marlies Nylander and Brown on PP.
@MaxwellHowe That's deep.
Wouldn't it be great if Clarkson ends up being the reason CBJ finishes one point ahead of Toronto ensuring the Leafs get the 5th pick??
@zoidbergman Not sure. It may just be Holzer, Jokinen and maybe Booth for 4th, 5th and 6th round picks respectively.
CBJ please beat the Habs. Please.
2 months ago on Leafs trade David Clarkson for Nathan Horton
Bowen just said Dave Clarkson spent 4 hours at Montador's funeral on a game day afternoon.
@Radar O'Rielly Lesson learned. He is getting back some credibility with the trades this month.
Clarkson, not a bad guy at all caught in an impossible contract to meet expectation anyone would have signed. All the best in CBJ, Dave.
Just hope NHL does not nullify the trade. I do not think they will because this helps CBJ. Other large market teams must be steaming. What does this do this summer or the trade deadline??
How do you feel if you are Horton and Clarkson???
2 months ago on Thursday Mashup: Final (major) rental sold, Bozak rumours pick up
@FrycersGhost LOTS OF CAP SPACE.
Good news for C. Brown down the road a RW spot just opened up.
@Bruffins @AlbertaMapleLeaf Big mistake turned into a huge mistake. I, like most on here, if they were honest wanted Clarkson just not 7 x 5.25 but rather 5 x 4 which still would have been a big mistake in hindsight.
Will NHL investigate and nullify trade?
Nonis is a genius job saving move to cover a big mistake that at the time did not seem like a huge mistake.
How embarrassing. Traded for a guy who could finish his career on LTIR. Leafs clear the cap space.
@Dan39 OK, take back Parenteau to make it happen
2 months ago on Daniel Winnik Traded to Pittsburgh
@Beleaf67 @AlbertaMapleLeaf @GibsonLPStudio We do have 2 fourths now with the Winnik deal.
@GibsonLPStudio @AlbertaMapleLeaf I am in.
Wonder if Robidas could be moved for a third.
