    January NHL News

    Miller was a fine 3rd pair guy and enforcer but could never stay on the ice. I think the enforcer thing is a little overblown anyway. Tuukka still would have gotten elbowed in the head if they had a 4th line of Thornton-Stock-McQuaid. And it cost them10 points in the standings at the end of the...

    19/20 Providence Bruins

    I think you’re right, he probably assumed he was older since he played in juniors last year and was still AHL eligible at 19. The doubling down is the disqualifying part. No one would have cared if he just said “oops” about some B level prospect he left off a list. I’m more of a Lauko fanboy...

    I dunno, Tkachuk is a hell of a player and just turned 22. 34g 43a at age 20/21. Marchand couldn't do that in the AHL

    I think Krejci could benefit from the Claude Giroux career rejuvenation path sooner rather than later. But he’s still playing center pretty well IMO and a center will be more expensive than a RW probably

    Sure Palmieri would be an upgrade over Heinen or Bjork, I don't see that really solving their problem though. The goal here, in my opinion, is to find a play-driving RW for the second line, giving a very good third line of Bjork-Coyle-Heinen. After Bjork and Heinen there's a huge dropoff in...

    Tottenham Hotspur 2019-20: Jose can you see?

    1-1. They weren't terrible, but they weren't good. A replay is the worst possible outcome at this point of the season.

    Tottenham Hotspur 2019-20: Jose can you see?

    Starting the game today in a 3-5-2. Lucas and Son up front, Eriksen and Alli in front of Winks in midfield. Back line of Dier-Toby-Jan. Sess and Aurier wingbacks

    Tottenham Hotspur 2019-20: Jose can you see?

    Kane hasn't been good since 2018. If the rest of the team is healthy, it's a blessing in disguise that he's hurt. He's not even the best striker on his team, that would be Dele. And even though I think Son is better on the wings, he's also a better striker than Kane. An ideal Kane-less lineup...

    Pastrnak is an elite shooter, one of the best in the league. Marchand and Bergeron are both very good, way above league average. The shootout isn't about shooting skill, it's a very specific situation that rarely happens in a real game.

    Blue Jackets @ Bruins

    Agree 100%. If they can get a RW for the second line and have a 3rd line of Bjork-Coyle-Heinen, that's great depth to go with the best line in the league. Studnicka isn't the answer at center yet, and moving Coyle to RW is just re-arranging the deck chairs. Short-term, I wouldn't mind giving...
