  1. Does this mean we get Charles Barkley and Ernie Johnson as analysts?
  2. I think it's telling that a clear captain hasn't emerged over the last few years.
  3. Sounds good, thanks for the explanation
  4. Will we still be able to rep posts?
  5. Holy cow, this looks like a whole new website! Sorry about the pain about missing posts
  6. My experience with keeper leagues is that over time a few teams accumulate the best players, and a few teams suck. The teams that suck see no way to compete, and owners drop out - so there ends up being a problem with turnover.
  7. About keepers - there's a few players that make a big difference. Do we really want the same teams to have McDavid, Vasilevskiy,etc?
  8. https://www.espn.com/olympics/story/_/id/32139847/sources-agreement-reached-nhl-players-participate-2022-olympics-beijing 'The NHL and NHLPA have come to an agreement with the IIHF and IOC that will allow NHL players to participate in the 2022 Olympic Games in Beijing. The agreement does carry an opt-out clause: the NHL and NHLPA can pull out of the Olympics, should COVID-19 conditions worsen, or if the 2021-22 NHL schedule has been disrupted by cancelations, and the league feels it needs to use the Olympic break to make up games. The deadline for the opt out is believed to be in early January, sources told ESPN.' 'The NHL is scheduled to break from games from Thursday, February 3 through Tuesday, February 22. All Star weekend in Las Vegas -- beginning on Feb. 4 -- was going to happen whether players are participating in the Olympics or not.'
  9. I'd be fine with three moves a week. Gives some more flexibility with Covid-IR
  10. Last season, I know there was some discussion of increasing from 2 moves per week. If people would like that change, it would be great to discuss before draft.
  11. I'd like to see the study on the feasibility of a franchise in Mexico. Doesn't seem like there is a built in fanbase there clamoring for hockey
  12. I agree there is much more to a team's success than individual stats. My point simply is that the model is assessing the value of individual players from a production perspective. It can't measure intangibles things like willingness to clear the front of the net, compete in the corners, contributions to a cohesive line. The Rangers can be a better team next year. But with the loss of Buch you are expecting the young players to be more productive - our off-season moves haven't bolstered the top two lines but instead are focused on the bottom two lines. Generally that is a strategy for teams that are proven playoff commodities looking to take the next step and compete for a Cup. Frankly, I don't think we have the firepower in our lineup to be a serious contender, so I still view us as a rebuilding project trying to become a more serious playoff contender.
