Okay, I gave everyone else time to start this new one, but time's up, and here it is!  :biggrin:

Old thread: https://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?topic=52793.0

And might as well start off this thread with a good shot of the way last season ended...

Yeah, that was so awesome.  :lol



Vasilevskiy signs HUGE deal.

Leafs sign about 10 guys not named Marner.

I like what New Jersey is doing.
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related

I read somewhere recently that the Leafs now have the longest drought in regards to winning the Stanley Cup...that seems crazy.

With the Blues’ victory, it is true. ‘67 was their last Cup.

When is Sweeney signing Charlie??

All the young RFA’s are playing a slow roll. I bet all of them re-sign with their own teams before the season starts.

He has to sign both Charlie AND Carlo. It's been pretty quiet.

Considering in order to have a drought, teams have to have won one before (typically), the Leafs have been on top of the the longest Cup drought list ever since Chicago nabbed their first in the latest bunch. They had been off since 1961.

Can't say I know enough about hockey to have an opinion on Nikita Gusev, but Devils twitter/reddit seemed pretty thrilled with the news yesterday. Really looking forward to see how this revamped roster looks on the ice.

Judging from social media posts.....I think the only training most Blues players have done this off season is mastering how to switch from hard liquor, to beer to foo foo drinks in a twelve hour span.

Fully expecting the ‘Stanley Cup Hangover’ to hit hard out of the gate.

But I don’t give a  :censored.   :lol

No one will ever top the way Ovechkin celebrated last year, but the Blues sure are living this up.  Maybe it will lead to a hangover that bleeds into the start of the season, but like Gary said...

Minnesota Wild fire their GM after one year.

Didn't fit the culture they built, apparently the Spurgeon contract discussions weren't going well, questionable trades, hockey personnel were complaining about him, and apparently exit interviews with players were not positive.

At the end of the day, this changes nothing. The Wild will never win a cup with this roster, the Central is only getting better while they get older.

^^Someone just did an alternate timeline piece on Winging it in Motown that talks about what may have happened to the Wings if they had signed Ryan Suter to the mega deal that the Wild signed him to.

https://www.wingingitinmotown.com/2019/8/13/20802157/what-if-ryan-suter-signed-with-detroit

Seems that contract was a killer no matter who would have signed it.

Maroon had a beast of a series against Dallas. His line of Thomas and Bozak wore Dallas out and led they had some key goals. And obviously his game 7 double OT goal will live in St. Louis lore forever like the David Freese home run.

BUT....he was pretty bad for most of the year. Benched many games and he was shopped around. Great dude and great clubhouse guy but it was clear the Blues had moved on from him. Just not a spot for him especially with the young guns we have coming up.

He’s got a good shot of winning two cups in a row.....he leaves his hometown on top and will be able to return as the ‘hero’ at anytime. Great move on his part.

Agreed.  Maroon will forever be a legend in this city thanks to that Game 7 double OT winner, but like you said, Gary, it's time to let the young guys do their thing.

So the Blues hired Chia as an advisor. Well, at least there's 1 team in the West that'll finish below the Oilers now. Good thing the Blues already won their cup.

Marner is finally signed.  6 years for $65M-ish.

Expect every other RFA forward to be very happy for him, and I think the rest will get signed within the next week.  Winnipeg might have a bit of trouble with both Laine and Connor, and rumour is the Canucks and Boeser are very far apart, so he might take some time.

I still think Marner is over-paid (for now), but on a 6 year deal, it'll probably end up ok in the end.  Leafs are in very good shape for the next 3 years, but when Andersen and Reilly come off their contracts, it could be trouble keeping them both if they intend to also keep Matthews/Tavares/Nylander/Marner.

Now let's get down to some hockey.  I ended up getting in on some season tickets at the Keybank Center, so I'll get 6 or 7 games - including the Leafs/Sabres pre-season game next Saturday.  I got 2 more tickets fairly close to my season's seats, so the jingle.family is gonna take that in next weekend.

That's a lot of money. For any player.

Should finally break the ice for the rest of the RFA's hopefully.

I like Marner though. He has always been great against the Bruins. He's a slick motherfucker for sure.

That’s a terrible deal.  Serious overpay.  I mean, I don’t blame the guy for getting paid, but there’s no way he’s worth that money.

Indeed. Decent bridge deal. $7.3M salary in year 3, so he'll make at least that much if he pans out at all.

The term is a bit much, especially for a team that needs a serious rebuild, but the dollar amount is only 2 million more than he's making now. It's not going to look nice towards the end though, he makes the same amount as Parise/Suter essentially and those guys are on the decline. He is their best defensemen though, so we'll see. That team is a mess though. The owner needs to disappear, he gets way too friendly with players. He goes to dinner with the GM and player. I think Fenton was a shit GM, but players like Parise and Suter run the show here and tell Leipold, the owner, what to do. Those two were brought here to bring talent and no free agent wants to play here
