    You should see mtl, it's hilarious.

    People are freaking out about a lot of stories, apparently Therrien was not allowed to talk to price, St├ęphane wait was calling the shots for the head coach.

    Drouin is the number one center now...I don't see it but so many fans will be disappointed. The guy is a pure winger that needs a scorer on the other side and a safe center, it boggles my mind that this mtl coaching staff doesn't seem to see it. Fucking get a center

    And I am freaking out

    I'm surprised Julien doesn't have him on the 3rd line because he doesn't defend well enough.

    This will never happen because bergevin is his boss and he acquired him. Mtl is a shit show, the Molsons just want to make money, this team is not winning a cup under this ownership. They are playing it safe and just want to turn a profit every year. Hockey performance is secondary.

    Hopefully Ovechkin is less fat this year. Don't think any of our losses are that huge but the replacements could be awful.

    Don't mind having low expectations so I'm not devastated come playoff time.

    I'm not kidding. This ownership promised to spend money and after one year slashed payroll. They are locked in until like 2023 but after that anything could happen.

    That would suck, the panthers are at least a franchise I like. The hurricanes is the team I want in Quebec.

    Not in, way too honest to steal your money guys.

    :) I am just too invested in my pool already, and It's a long term thing. I need to really scout junior players, and another thank you note to The Banks and Truman for parayko. That was the steal of our draft.

    And I know many of you are savages, I am not worthy. I really suck at these things

    Seriously right now I could trade parayko for a top ten pick. That is his value in my fantasy for life right now. He is young, steady and big shot. Drafted him in the 6th round lol. Defensemen that produces like him are gold. Even if it's just 40-50 points it's huge for a d that always does it and is still young

    Getting roasted in my keeper pool. Finally get two solid GK'ers, Murray and Vas, and the commish wants to make the pool more competitive. We can only protect 1 keeper so I'm going to lose Vasilevski. Fack.

    He is very good but he will fade away. I would try to trade him for a fair price, his value will never be as high as it is now.

    Watching this panthers preseason game and I see what 34 was saying about slashing calls. They have called a penalty every time a stick gets up in the hand area whether or not any meaningful contact was made. Got to think they are going way overboard during preseason to get players to break the habit of tapping every time they are trailing a puck carrier
