Nurse-Barrie has been a disaster so Bouchard is now on the top pair and it’s dominant. Bouchard is already the Oilers best defenseman.

His slap shot is deadly, he has 30 goal potential from the dline

Hes part of a new breed of Dman who like to slap shot and I love it. Like it seems so many Dman these days refuse to do it. While the younger guys are bringing it back which im all for as a pass first mentality is not what you need out of an offensive dman.

Rielly could take some pointers thats for sure as imagine him slap shooting on the PP. For some reason he stopped doing it and I dont get why while Sandin has been doing it and often its been rewarded with either a goal or assist or prime scoring chance.

Tony Marinaro just said he'd have given Kotkaniemi 6.1x1 before giving Gallagher 6.5x6, what do you think?


Gallagher is a top 10 rw in the league, Kotkaniemi is a middle 6 C. I think I’d rather pay the star

It shocks me Ryan Craig still has a job as Vegas's PP coach

Like since their creation Vegas PP has not been good. Even now with the additions of Stone, Pacioretty, Pietrangelo, among others its ironically gotten worse.

Year 1: 21.37%
Year 2: 16.41%
Year 3: 21.99%
Year 4: 17.82%
Year 5: As of rn 0%

Playoffs though is where it gets streaky

Yr 1: 18.46%
Yr 2: 27.59%
Yr 3: 18.18%
Yr 4: 9.3%

For a team that needs to win now it seems they have prioritized the wrong area as while defense is nice scoring is also important as why even bother to draw penalties if its the equivalent to being shorthanded for them

Who's idea was it to wrap Vegas helmets in gold baked potato wraps.

They honestly dont look good at all


I was having a discussion with my brother @JetsCanesSens about that. He thought they were fine. I said they were terrible. Glad I found someone who shares my view.

Gallagher was a top 10 RW at one point. For example, TSN Fantasy ranks him 26th for RW's. Sure you can move him up a few spots, but he's not top 10.

Gally is definitely not a top 10 RW anymore. He was really good with Danault and Tatar, but on his own he can’t reach those heights. Plus it remains to be see if his scoring touch will ever return to his past effectiveness after his injury last year.

I don’t know, Gally isn’t quite the same without Tatar and Danault and who knows how he’ll do now but he’s still a good top 6 winger in theory and Kk was one of my favourite guys, such a though choice. We also currently have more of a need for centers than wingers and Kk is younger so I’d maybe go with Kk but ideally we’d have both somehow

Oof, we don't really have a top goalie, and that may be what costs us

Nah I haven’t gotten the free time, I’m really busy of late sadly, but to no surprise they’re playing well when I’m not watching.

When the games actually matter, Carey Price is a top goalie. He just has to be back by the Olympics. He, Kuemper & Fleury is probably the third best goaltending core after the USA and Russia.

I think we can all agree though, Canada's performance depends heavily on Carey Price.

Price behind an Elite defense should still be Elite. But yeah, compared to Russia/USA, our weakness if definitely goaltending.

I disagree. Canada's defense has the potential to elevate an average goaltender to an elite goaltender. Even if we let in 2GA per game, the offense has the potential score 4.

There are no guarantees that Price even plays in the Olympics, however our defense will be one of the best so that should compensate

You but you still can't have Micheal Hutchinson in net or anything. If Carey Price isn't at the top of his game, it COULD be the difference between silver and gold, but you have a point, Canada's defense is so stacked they can probably carey (pun intended) any goalie to a certain degree.

Canada = Forwards
USA = Defense
Russia = Goaltending

We might be seeing Canada as #1 slipping. IMO USA college hockey has overtaken the CHL in terms of development.

If Price is healthy... / available for the Olympics there's a 100% chance he's at least on the roster due to his experience.

I feel like we still have a better defence than USA, however Russia and USA currently have better goaltending
