Had nothing to do with Chia UNTIL the Bruins picked three players in a row, NOT NAMED BARZAL. That's where the isles got lucky...

Of course it did. He was the one who still thought Reinhart had potential

6 of one half dozen of the other......had boston not picked three in a row and left Barzal on that table this entire trade prob wouldn't have happened, and we'd be on here talking about Reinhardt and how we're not ready to get rid of him just yet.....and then add how d men take longer to develop etc. Reinhardt sucks, as does Strome, as does Dall Colle, as does Ho Sang. Im noticing a trend here....

Edmonton must have felt like I did back in the day when I sold my NES and all my games for a TurboGrafx 16.

Didn't they trade him after Boston made the picks, saying that Barzal falling to that spot was the reason they pulled the trigger?

edit -- that's what they said, anyway:

Yes, which is why I said they got lucky, and that Boston was the reason they got so lucky. If not, Reinhardt would be a soundtiger and fans would still be talking about how he needs more time..

Yea, that SI article that someone posted about him said that Barzal's draft stock dropped partly due to his soccer-warmup knee injury and mostly because he was confident-bordering-on-cocky in his pre-draft interviews with teams. He even said that he hadn't spoken to the Isles in any capacity, other than speaking to an area-scout while he was playing in the WHL.

Yeah cause Snow probably had no idea who this kid was...…...and clearly they didn't know what they had, as a Calder winner couldn't even crack their lineup the year before. Kid made one mistake coming out of the penalty box and he was in a suit for the next 9 games before heading back to the Dub. Next year, rookie of the year Lololol Cant make this sh!t up....

I can see some teams being scared off, but damn...if you're Boston sitting there with three picks in a row, you take a chance!

You hear a lot of stories about teams getting turned off from guys because of their interviews and perceived personality flaws. Sometimes it pays off (ahem...Ho Sang) and sometimes, like with Barzal, you look like a big, giant idiot.

The interview wasn't good, but it's not as bad as the headline makes it out to be.

Your point remains. JHS should just shut up and play. The interview makes it known he's frustrated and willing to voice that frustration.

pretty much exactly what I said.. so someone agrees with me.

Didn't he once say he wanted to be better than Connor McDavid and be the best player in the NHL????? Now reality sets in, and he is trying to be better than Steve Bernier, and score his first goal in the A.....
- kindlyrick


Pretty sure he said he wanted to be one of the best players in the NHL.. Like Connor McDavid. That is what every talented hockey player should be thinking.
