  1. Have to assume that Nashville will stack the deck against our top line in this. Time for Lafreniere to live up to the hype.
  2. You can like or dislike Drury's style, personnel decisions etc...but ultimately the actual results on the ice after 2-3 years will be the initial measuring stick. If its true that he was never big on the Kravtsov pick, than he's potentially dealing with leftover issues from the last regime - so he has the leeway to let his own vision play out. Secondly, any narrative you hear directly from a horses mouth is going to be somewhat biased one way or the other - all the more so when its secondhand from various reporting. Which is why ultimately only the overall organization's results will tell the story in the long term.
  3. looking like we should've signed him to one of those big time 8 year, 8M+ contracts...
  4. Who knows - maybe they could've communicated better but its speculative. One thing that's not speculative though is the mother f'n contract he signed. Who is this guy - Eichel? - that he thinks he has the leverage to back out and force the teams hand. He hasn't done a damn thing at the NHL level. He's still just a scrub with high potential.
  5. We're all excited about Kravtsov's potential so this whole thing is a big let down. But if he was really close to being an effective/productive top 9 player at this time, he would've made the team. Chances are he'd just continue to flash potential while not having a net positive impact on games.
  6. I remember when Buchnevich wasn't hacking it in year 1-2...because he didn't have the conditioning and commitment to the two way game. Except he wasn't a top 10 pick with the 'luxury' of having an overinflated ego, so i guess he was forced to actually put in the work and evolve - which he sure as hell did. Kravtsov, without putting in the work, would probably never amount to much anyways.
  7. Zibanejads short handed breakaway - where he takes the puck at his own blue line and blows past the defender - was the sign that hes getting in the zone.
  8. didn't watch too closely, but the biggest positives: 1) Zibanejad looks close to catching fire 2) Blais jumps off the screen - dude has to play above the 4th line 3) Shesty looks primed to keep us in most games
  9. Caught a few minutes of him on the broadcast...dude jumps off the screen with positive energy and passion. He's built for the job.
  10. I could understand needing some time under a new coach for the right leader to be chosen. But you have to hope someone will emerge head and shoulders above the rest as the main leader.
  11. Kakko and Blais are making Drury look pretty smart for not spending on Buch
  12. Aside from the contract situation, never really understood why Zibanejad wasn't the obvious choice. Absolute world class hockey player and tons of confidence.
  13. 9 million for 6 years is probably what theyde need to offer to lock him right now, along with full NMC and whatever up front signing bonuses are possible. Dont think hed take any less. Of course, if hes ripping it up this season, scoring at his insane end of last year and previous year pace, the price could go up.
