  1. Jake Gardiner still waiting on a seven year deal?
  2. Looks like Artturi's PDO and shooting percentage were quite high in his rookie season (100.7 and 11.4) and then regressed a lot in seasons two (96.5 and 7.3) and three (99.9 and 6.3). 7.3 and 6.3 seem particularly bad as a shooting percentage. I believe the league average is somewhere around 9. I'm hoping he can improve and score 20 this season.
  3. I think you're right about Noah Juulsen. I think he's either A] the first call-up when an injury hits, or B] with the club out of camp, possibly unseating someone like Folin from an opening night spot. Hopefully he's recovered from his eye problem! I guess I'm a little jaded, but I don't expect Bergevin to accomplish anything else before the season begins. I'm sure he's out there searching to improve the team, but I'm doubtful anything gets done. Would love to see a number 1-2 LD here. Maybe it gets done... I hope it does!
  4. I think reaching 20 goals and 40+ points would be a decent output this season.
  5. I think the problem is, success at the World Juniors is not an indicator of becoming a successful 1-2 D in the NHL. I still think this signing is bad, and the underlying stats I looked at support that (corsi, fenwick). I would rather have overpaid for Jake Gardiner.
  6. I wonder if Bergevin just walks away from the arbitrator's ruling.
  7. Maybe it will be Michael McCarron, if he gets a new contract.
  8. I'm kind of hoping it's just a couple of promotions from our prospect pool. Ryan Poehling should get a good long look, I think. Maybe Matthew Peca will make the team... It's nice to know that Jake Evans or Nick Suzuki or, heck, even Cole Caufield could get a look, too.
  9. With the Armia and Lehkonen signings I feel like Bergevin is probably finished. So, assuming some players will be demoted to Laval, my guess is that the following will be the final roster for 2019-20: (there would be some additional cap hit remaining from the buyout of Steve Mason. And the demotions of Karl Alzner, Dale Weise, and Matthew Peca will not completely remove their cap hit from the NHL roster, although we will encounter savings to the tune of $3-4 million) FORWARDS: Jonathan Drouin ($5.500) Tomas Tatar ($4.800) Brendan Gallagher ($3.750) Paul Byron ($3.400) Max Domi ($3.150) Phillip Danault ($3.083) Joel Armia ($2.600) Artturi Lehkonen ($2.400) Jordan Weal ($1.400) Nate Thompson ($1.000) Nick Cousins ($1.000) Jesperi Kotkaniemi ($0.925) ($33.008 million) DEFENSE: Shea Weber ($7.857) Jeff Petry ($5.500) Ben Chiarot ($3.500) Brett Kulak ($1.850) Mike Reilly ($1.500) Christian Folin ($0.800) Victor Mete ($0.748) ($21.755) GOALTENDERS: Carey Price ($10.500) Keith Kincaid ($1.750) ($12.250) Estimating the money we'd save from Alzer and co. and factoring in Mason's money, we're looking at around $73 million in total. That still leaves us around $8.5 million to wiggle around with. There's space left on that roster for two additional people. Perhaps Ryan Poehling? Perhaps Nick Suzuki? Perhaps Jake Evans?
  10. Regarding the ongoing conversation around salary, the salary cap, taxes, etc. I want to say again, there's an important distinction between sources of income a player can make outside of the game (endorsements, investments, etc.) and sources of incomes directly from the league (salary, signing bonus, etc.). The league and the NHLPA have direct control over how sources of income within the game can be determined when negotiating the next CBA. I just believe this should be negotiated to give all 31 teams a fair playing field when it comes to compensating players. At that point, it's up the relative performances of the teams to determine who makes enough money from fans to pay player X. Revenue sharing should still be a thing, but teams that can't get their act together should not be able to go out and spend to the cap.
  11. Really digging that Lehkonen is still a restricted free agent when this deal expires.
  12. I'd be willing to take a gamble on Lehkonen and go higher cap hit, longer term. But that's just me!
  13. I have no idea. I can only remember that we got Thibault (I think) when we traded Roy and Racicot was a back-up here when Roy was a starter. I can't remember who else may have been backing on Roy in that day. Could it have been Hackett?
  14. Sounds about right. I am content with this signing! EDIT: Also, nicely sets up a possible outflow of cap dollars in 2021-22 when Danault, Armia, Weal, Tatar, Gallagher, Petry, and Reilly all become UFAs.
  15. I feel like this one has to be from way back. How about Maurice Richard and Guy Lafleur?
