You know this isn’t aimed at anyone in particular but I was a miserable phuck at one time and I decided to become my own boss and become my own boss and joined Uber.

Best decision of my life and recommend it highly.

I hope so a lot of it is connected to former regime anxiety most likely. It’s all just falling into place the same way though isn’t it? Hahaha. Have shatty vets coming in on PTO’s a bunch of trash heap signings of players no other teams wanted a trade for a player who was a healthy scratch for the last 32 games and playoffs on his former team and a few decent prospects trying to bust through a jammed line up. We’ve all seen this before hopefully the ending is different.

I'm thinking that as well. Although, those 2 won't fetch you too good of a return. A prospect or 2 and maybe a high draft pick might get it done.

I read somewhere Eberle, Bellows and a 2nd for Panarin

What's your line guesses? Just to see if any of us are close when the season starts.

Mine...
Lee/Barzal/Eberle
Beauv/Bailey/Ho Sang
Ladd/Nelson/Kuhnhackl
MM/CC/CC

Defense
Leddy/Boychuk
Pulock/Pelech
Toews/hickey
Mayfield

I think they move Bailey back to Center and let him do what he is good at once in a while... Pass and back check. Nelson will be on a very short leash as 3rd line center. Guys like Ho Sang, Pulock, & Toews will get their shot with new crew.

While I do think it's possible either could be traded, I don't think it will be done before the season or before Trotz and Lou have a chance to see what they have going forward.

If Ebs, Barzal and Tito are tearing it up I could see Ebs staying. I would assume the same with Nelson if he plays with Lee and Bailey and they find some chemistry and play well , he could be extended as well. Conversely if things don't work out and they don't want to stay they will be traded and not walk for nothing under Lou's rule.

As you said IHM, We won't know until they drop the puck and when I say "WE" I mean most of us. Some know already

1st Bold - Just bustin' your balls a little.

2nd Bold - What idiot ever said that? (not saying I don't believe you, just wondering what helmet-wearing idiot would think either of those 2 things).

3rd Bold - That's exactly what I'm doing. Throwing my opinion out there as well.

No one persons opinion counts anymore than anyone else's. It's why we all throw out there what we throw out there. It's that time of year when there isn't very much going on in the hockey world and everyone is giving their prognostications. So we sit here bs'ing with each other, busting chops, arguing, etc. You have a right to say what you want to say and so do I. You want to keep saying the signings suck, then so be it. I'm not a big fan of the signings but I'm going to mostly withhold judgement until I see them play several games. Maybe they'll surprise us. Maybe they'll suck just like I think they will. I am though looking at this as a lost season. Just my opinion. I don't care what you or anyone else thinks about it.

- Isleshockeyman

This is not factual. My opinion counts more than anyone else's. The rest of you can fight it out for the #2 spot.

- Isleshockeyman

Pretty much summed up my thoughts on everything as far as who said those things I won’t mention names they know who they are. I keep saying the signings suck because posters keep engaging me in debate with them. My opinion doesn’t change with each debate so it’s consistent I’m yammering on just as much as the jackarses continuously engaging me in said debates. Hahahaha. Also, once again no matter what I’m looking forward to this season like most on here. I’m excited to see what Trotz can do with this group. I’m hoping to see improvement from players. Overall I’m bearish on the teams success this season but who the (frank) knows i don’t have a crystal ball nor ever claimed to have one for all I know Trotz has magical powers to transform these guys into a competent, competitive hockey team. I’ll gladly take being incorrect in my assumptions of this coming season with what we’ve seen so far. I’ll also add I disagree with the bold. My opinion actually does count more than anyone else.

Why in God’s name would you put moose knuckle on the third line? This is a good example of why my opinion matters more than everyone else🤣

I didn’t really take that as calling him out. I thought it was more just addressing an elephant in the room for the media and or fans who keep bringing it up to him.
- kindlyrick

he said teams win and those teams never did but individuals win games, i took it as a shot at him. Also it sends a message to the current squad that playing as a unit will win games not like individuals last year

Maybe I am wrong but, just because Filppula, Komarov ,Kuhnnockle, Kovar were signed , it doesn't necessarily mean they will make the team , correct? I mean if the kids out play them in camp, they can be sent down to the AHL. Sure nobody would probably claim them , and they would count against the cap, but it could happen. Remember Garth and Cappy are gone, they would never do that to veterans. Who knows what Trotz and Lou will do if JHS lights it up in camp. I say lets see what happens from now until the season starts. Still could be a trade or two coming also. Just saying.

I don't think Ho Sang will make the team. I hope he does. I hope Trotz sits him down and sets him straight, but I'm not sure it will stick. It would be nice, the guy has tons of skill and is exciting to watch.
