    Barbashev suspended for game six.

    Guessing Thomas will still be out, they’ve barely bothered to give updates on him.

    Yes, it sounds like Thomas is done.

    I would assume Fabrri comes in. In 4th line role, Id rather put MacEarchen in. Im sure it will be Fabbri though.

    In that case Id like to see him w Bozak and Maroon, and have Blias play w Sundqvist and Steen

    Why? Is fabbri not healthy, he was a hot incomer just 2 years ago

    He looked like he was going to be a star, but he blew out his acl twice in 1.5 years.

    He was healthy this year, but never really got it together. He's been in and out of the lineup. I just dont think he fits well in a fourth line roll. Especially the way the blues 4th line is playing.

    I hope he can regain his potential though. Maybe another year of being healthy will do that. His window w the blues might be closing though.

    I would take a shot with him but his style of play definitely leads to injury for his size

    I don’t remember who it was but we were debating the second hit you were bitching about, not Barbashevs.

    So clearly the league saw it my way on that one

    Hit on Krug?

    I dont remember. It was a hit on the opposite dot of the barbashev one.

    Im half drunk at a patio rn, trying to find it on my phone

    I can feel it as I have teams that are terrible but 8/9 for Skinner is pretty rough

    It’s really not an awful deal. Skinner is a reliable player, in that he is usually healthy and he’s going to get you 25 in a bad year. Plus, he’s only 27.

    Also, I’m not sure what else Buffalo could do. The Sabres couldn’t score goals with Skinner in the lineup. Letting him walk would be disastrous, especially as the Atlantic continues to improve.

    That said, I wouldn’t want to have that deal on the books when Dahlin is up.

    If that deal sounds good to you the price contract is a bargain

    I really like Skinner. Not at 9, but Buffalo is a market that has to overpay and they could not afford to let him leave.

    Would you prefer skinner at 9 or price at 10?

    Seems obvious to me

    Not awful isn’t exactly good.

    And I would still take a 30 goal scorer at 9 over any goalie at 10.

    I know exactly what he can do. And I know exactly what King Henrik can do. And I know what Bob can do and what Rinne can do. They are all fantastic and they have what, two finals appearances between them?

    In the cap era, it is a killer to have a goalie taking up that much of your cap room.

    I’ll go a step further and say that Price is one of the best goalies I’ve seen in my lifetime. But what’s it really gotten the Canadiens?

    The other thing about paying a goalie a huge AAV is this day and age, you’re maybe getting 60 starts out of them. Price had 66 starts this season, which is damn impressive. You’re still giving up an eighth of your cap space to a guy who didn’t play in 20 per cent of your games.

    True but even your best forward isn't playing 60% of the game

    But still 9 for skinner? No way

    And that’s another stereotype against goalies, what did skinner ever do to bring his team anywhere a cup?

    It’s a great point, but if we take a one for one of the highest paid winger (Kane) and the highest paid goalie (Price), you’re getting more impact over the course of the season from Kane.

    I am a goalie, so I get it, but teams pay for goals.
    I mean Cole Caufield is going to maybe be a top 5 pick. Five years ago, he’s maybe an early second rounder. Meanwhile Spencer Knight is the best goalie prospect in forever and maybe he goes top 15. There is just too much volatility in goalies year to year. I mean, look at Lehner and Greiss. Those guys were dead to the world last year. This year they were world beaters.

    As a
    I get it, and you only have to look at the blues to really get it. But I would still say that skinner is not worth what price is doing, now if we talk about bergeron, oreilly, kuznetsov, ...etc etc sure. Price is not worth it

    glad he is locked in. Hopefully him and Eichel have an awesome year together next year.


    Happy for now. Worry about everything else later.

    ready for next year with the new coach

    Not that surprised, he was probably just a little banged up and drained from his first nhl season. I expect him to have some jump

    I came into town to be in the atmosphere. Gonna stay until game 7 if they dont get it done tonight.

    IVe always thought watching outside of the stadium seems stupid, but we're considering it. If not, a bar down town.

    To each their own but I can’t imagine watching the most important game(s) of my life with random fans spewing all sorts of bad takes.
