“The people that were brought in, they all have an element of one of two things,” Trotz said. “They’ve either won, or they bring a high-character value to the group.”

Trotz and Lou need to start reading HB and they would realize these characteristics mean nothing

Or any hockey publication for that matter since nobody in the entire hockey world thought one of these signings were good. Oh, besides you and kindlyrick. Looking forward to seeing how much you value Johnston’s character when we’re out of the playoffs by December 😂

And of course Lou and Trotz

Funny thing is Johnson was praised on here last season by the crew. You don’t like Johnson anymore or maybe you never did?

I'm noticing a trend here with the players we're signing/looking at ...

Seidenberg (PTO): Analytically, Seidenberg was amongst the worst defensemen in the league last season.

Sbisa (PTO): As always with Sbisa, his advanced stats numbers were putrid. Albeit in just 30 games, he had the worst Corsi-for percentage (43.3%) among all Golden Knights players, and by a wide margin.

Komarov: Not only was his point production down, but Komarov was buried in terms of possession.

Filppula: There’s an easy way to describe Filppula as a player: he is a drag on pretty much every single player he plays with.

So is it safe to say Lou isn't a big analytics guy?

It’s not so much that i loved the signings, but i kind of understood it. I said for weeks every signing had a theme and Lou just reiterated it. We all agree they’re gonna wait and see......i just wanna see some exciting hockey. No matter what this team is in good hands.

I never hated the guy I mean you want to see the guy do good of course I just don’t think anymore of him then what he is.
Also, praised is a strong word. Maybe liked a little? I’ll also add that most people that liked him in a “I hope to maybe see you every fourth game for 3 mins” kind of a way most likely certainly not praised that’s absurd. They definitely didn’t like him in a “I’d love to see this guy locked up for the next four years” kind of way🤣

Absolutely. I just don’t think it was neccesary to have three fourth lines and have terrible players under contract for multiple years. Trotz and Lou have been saying they want to see what Ho Sang has. Filppula ntc/nmc along with Komorav. Matt Martin. Cizikas and clutter unmovable without even factoring in Kunachkl and Johnston just signed. How will he or any other kid crack this line up of over priced garbage? You know one of Seidenberg or Sbisa will be signed and they’re both two piles of shat and they’ll block Toews without even mentioning hickey. Book it. This is when these signings will really start rearing their ugly head.

Why is Johnston talked about so much? He is gonna spend all if not most of that contract in the AHL with no cap hit to the big club. They threw him a financial bonus by making his contract one way. He isn't taking a spot away from any of the prospects. If Ho-Sang or Bellows make the team it won't be on the 4th line. Only way I we see him in the NHL is if Martin gets hurt. Some of you guys are complaining like he is getting top 6 minutes. Stop it already lol

All kidding aside if either Ho Sang or Bellows made the team it wouldn’t be in the top 6 and of course they better not throw them on the 4th line that goes without saying. Their only shot would’ve been the 3rd line with our top 6 pretty much settled.

Between Clutterbuck, Cizikas, Martin, Komarov, moose knuckle, Johnston, Fliipula, and whoever else I know I’m forgetting it’s pretty much a foregone conclusion that’s not happening. Three of those guys are our third line. Now I’m not saying either of them deserve to play on the third line or with the big club for that matter BUT there’s not a chance they’re making it the way it looks now. Johnston was just an example not the topic.

Forget about the defense with Hickey being extended and still here and Toews more than likely being blocked.

I get it we don’t know what’s going to happen and we have to see how it plays out but what it looks like right now is exactly what I just stated. Have to play these kids eventually having a bunch of kids breaking into the league in their mid twenties to me seems a little stupid especially with what’s potentially blocking them.

Whatever you say jerkoff ive stated numerous times on here he can be sent down with no hit and wont be on the roster. Maybe you should try shutting the (frank) up sometime because you're not as smart as you think you are. Mr tough guy always negative and blithering on and on, its tiring
