I think Chief is hardest hit here, as he probably had about 600,000 other versions of that name ready to fire off over the next month

I would rather not have Loontoggle on the team than create more names for him

Chiefs is the champ when it comes to alternative names for Cornhacker.

Asked Barry Trotz if Devon Toews would be better served playing regularly at Bridgeport (AHL) or possibly being an extra D for #Isles.
Trotz said he couldn't answer specifically for Toews but he always believes players are better served playing regularly.


Seems like Toews' will be heading to BPT. Hopefully some of the dinguses (dingi?) like Mayfield/Pelech/Sbisa will be on a short leash, because Toews sure looked like he belongs in the NHL.

That’s a bit disappointing.....that’s a move a serious team does. I think he’d be better off get a regular shift in the NHL, as this season is not one where they hope to make noise.

Figured that was going to be the case. But still...

He put his time in and earned a spot. He should play.

Well unfortunately the mindset in the front office and on the coaching staff seems to be one of "compete now", so I can't say that this is particularly surprising. Getting top-pair minutes in the AHL won't hurt him, but it seems like he's certainly ready to be at the NHL level and his speed in the transition game would be extremely beneficial for an old, slow team like the Islanders are going to be this year.

#Leafs trade Connor Carrick to #stars for a conditional 2019 7th round pick, which becomes a 6th round pick if Carrick plays 50 or more NHL games.


Would have probably been an upgrade for the bottom pair.

Not sure if anyone is interested, but I'm jumping in a (free) fantasy league with a bunch of the guys from the Rags thread. They may be a few teams short, nothing is set in stone yet, so if anyone is interested let me know.

Guess we'll see how it plays out. I'm still thinking that Lou wants to evaluate the vets in real-season games. Then dump/trade who he wants in the first couple months. I would imagine it's a bit tough to get a solid read on guys when it's preseason and the lines are constantly changing.

I'm not happy about this but I have to think Lou and Barry will not let the vets fail game after game like Garth. Pressure will be on everyone to get results early.

Hopefully! I assumed it would be a vet-heavy roster based on the offseason signings and said as much...but of all the younger players in camp, it's hard to argue Toews didn't earn a spot, which is what I think we were hoping to see more of -- spots being earned rather than handed out.

Hope some of these clowns are weeded out quickly because it's shaping up to be a slow, boring team outside of the first line...

No doubt Toews should be starting with the Isles. I love the vets are not going to have any excuses though. They are getting a chance with a Cup winning coach so it's on them if they cannot make it work. I have to think Malkin is no longer going to let things fall apart like before as well.

I get the mindset that everyone gels differently, but I don't really believe that they need to do that much evaluating of guys that have been in the league for years.
