  1. I remember when Emery was playing in the AHL for the Binghampton Senators. He fought Josh Gratton from the Phantoms....

  6. On May 13, 2013 Keenan signed a contract with Metallurg Magnitogorsk of KHL. On April 30, 2014 Keenan's Metallurg team won the KHL championship with a game seven victory over HC Lev Praha. In winning the team's first Gagarin Cup, Keenan became both the first North American coach to win a KHL championship and the first coach to win both the Gagarin Cup and the Stanley Cup. On October 17, 2015, Keenan was fired by Magnitogorsk. On March 16, 2017, Keenan was announced as the new head coach of HC Kunlun Red Star, the KHL's first Chinese based team. After a disappointing start to the 2017-18 season, Keenan was fired by Kunlun Red Star on December 3, 2017.
  7. Nice to see the Flyers at #1 (Great article ..thanks for sharing ) Philadelphia Flyers, A+ Rank (1) The Flyers were the consensus number one ranked team. GM Ron Hextall has done a tremendous job of acquiring a bevy of good to elite prospects at every position. The top 10 scored high across the board, they received a healthy boost from their U-21 roster talent as well as bonus points for their depth beyond the top 10. – Peter Harling One of the deepest and most dangerous pipelines in hockey, the Flyers are primed for success on the front and back end. The plethora of high-end prospects in their system, not to mention the ones ALREADY contributing in the NHL, could potentially lead to the Flyers trading one or more of them away in exchange for high-end help now. Brayden Olafson They continue to lead the way with depth and options. Lots of talent who will have solid NHL careers. This team will be the next one to surprise and grab a division title soon. – Joel Henderson One of the deepest and most dangerous pipelines in hockey, the Flyers are primed for success on the front and back end. The plethora of high-end prospects in their system, not to mention the ones already contributing in the NHL, could potentially lead to the Flyers trading one or more away in exchange for high-end help now. – Jokke Nevalainen Top 10 Prospects Carter Hart Morgan Frost German Rubtsov Philippe Myers Isaac Ratcliffe Sam Morin Oskar Lindblom Wade Allison Tanner Laczynski Felix Sandstrom U-21 Roster Players: Nolan Patrick, Ivan Provorov, Travis Konecny, Travis Sanheim Other notable prospects: Matt Strome, Carsen Twarynski, Maxim Shusko, David Kase, Nicolas Aube-Kubel 2018 Draft picks by round: 1: Joel Farabee (14th), Jay O’Brien (19). Round 2: Adam Ginning (50). Round 3: None. Round 4: Jack St. Ivany (112). Round 5: Wyatte Wylie (127), Samuel Ersson (143). Round 6: Gavin Hain (174)> Round: Marcus Westfalt (225).
  8. Deloreans cold feet will cause him to be too scared to trade Karlsson and he will walk for nothing next year as a UFA. The prefect ending for an utterly crappy GM. IMHO, I think the biggest snag in the Karlsson trade fiasco, which as has been mentioned all over the internet, is the insistence of the Sens trying to in include Bobby Ryan in any trade. Ottawa seems persistent in removing him but I think when it comes down to it, teams are not comfortable with his cap hit and productivity. The longer this drags on the more time GM's have to anaylize it, the more they get uncomfortable about it.
  9. The latest ... non-update as per our from Ek so take with a grain of salt ... Deals that are "close to being done" are like lit flames. The longer they burn the greater the chances of the whole thing falling completely apart...for the simple reason that when a nearly done deal reaches Day 3 or 4 you know the hold up is more than logistics. Its usually about cold feet... This trade is a big deal for Dorion...and the cold feet I am told...are his.. And the Rangers aren't happy at all either.. As Tampa insider Erik Erlendsson said on XM yesterday the Lightning are trying to figure out how to make this cap for and Kucherov is a player who has to be considered...I am told the NY Rangers fixated on the possibility of landing Kucherov and so far Tampa hash't slammed any doors. But either way, Callahan will not be enough and the Rangers need a lot more...which has led the NJ Devils into this dance as a team with plenty of cap space who could help this all be worked out... Meanwhile my sources are telling me Dallas is "Just as close to working out a trade as is Tampa..." However the only team that has the extension part figured out....is Tampa... Vegas is still toying with Ottawa as well...They are the only team willing to take on Bobby Ryan....
  10. Finally some news .... [Hidden Content] [Hidden Content] Jaskirat Sidhu faces 16 counts of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death, 13 counts of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing bodily harm. His first court appearance in Saskatchewan Provincial Court is next week. Sidhu, 29, is from Calgary. Though the official cause of the crash has yet to be released, with the arrest of the truck driver involved, it appears that the truck driver is going to be the principle cause of the crash. All major news articles that I have checked are repeating the same information.
  11. [Hidden Content] Erik Karlsson Trade Talks Have Stalled July 6, 2018 at 7:00 pm CDT | by Zach Leach 22 Comments Over the past few days, it seemed like a trade for all-world defenseman Erik Karlsson was imminent. Originally, the Dallas Stars were confirmed to be the leader in the race and deep in talks with the Ottawa Senators on a deal for Karlsson. Not long after, it was the Tampa Bay Lightning who had reportedly pulled ahead and had a deal in place with Ottawa that simply required a third team to take on salary. Some even stated that a deal was done pending a trade call, a rumor that obviously lacked reliability. Karlsson remains a Senator and it now seems like a trade is not coming as quickly as expected. The Athletic’s Joe Smith, who has had his finger on the pulse of the Lightning’s trade talks, is no longer optimistic about a deal getting done. Smith writes that a deal for Karlsson should not be expected any time soon and that nothing is “imminent or close”. Smith admits that a trade could still work out between Ottawa and Tampa, but it’s no longer the foregone conclusion that some had perceived. Meanwhile the Stars are rumored to have fallen out of favor when they refused to include star blue line prospect Miro Heiskanen in a deal for Karlsson. Sportsnet’s John Shannon believes that the Stars still have a chance to land Karlsson, but it seems that Dallas’ chances depend on whether or not they can be flexible with their offer. The Senators now have a feel for the market and should be able to work out a fair value for Karlsson soon. However, what isn’t so easy is accommodating their insistence on also sending away Bobby Ryan and his $7.25MM cap hit over four years remaining on his contract. Sportsnet’s Chris Johnston reports today that this is the exact reason that finding a trade partner and working out the details of a deal could prove difficult. A three-team deal, like the one contemplated by Ottawa and Tampa Bay, is the most likely outcome for a Karlsson trade, but such deals don’t develop overnight. A trade could still be a ways away – The Athletic’s Chris Stevenson says that the Lightning, Stars, and Vegas Golden Knights all remain in the running – but Stevenson also says that nothing is close as the Senators have “retrenched” and the suitors are playing hardball. It seems that whichever team is able to up the ante on their offer and also be creative in managing several major contracts will be the team to land Karlsson and change the face of their franchise.
  12. I've speculated before, but I'm not sure if your definition of speculating is the same definition of my definition of speculation, but of course I'm speculating that it is.
  13. Yeah .. good point. I was debating back and forth about it. I know HF Boards has a Mega Thread going on about it. I'll just change the title of the thread. Debate and speculation is a good thing! I'll unlock it...........
