Has Green finally come to the understanding that Sutter is an offensive blackhole?

Thanks Carol! Wow...bo is 6’0 225 and he looks small beside Brock. Wtf...I hope Brock hasn’t sacrificed mobility with the weight gain.

Brock looks like a thick necked rugby player.

Hope he doesn't have a year like Sopel did after he went all weight gain 4000.

Bo doesn't look that heavy.

I just read on TSN that OTT believes they can make a hockey trade with Ryan! They aren’t willing to offer a sweetener for whoever takes on that contract. That’s the reason EK wasn’t traded to LV at the TDL. Dorion is a beauty

Ryan for Eriksson? Would you?

per rotoworld...

Jake Dotchin has been placed on unconditional waivers by Tampa Bay.
The Lightning intend to terminate Dotchin's contract, citing a "material breach" for the reason. The team didn't elaborate on the situation beyond that. Dotchin skated in 48 games with Tampa Bay last season and he posted 11 points.

@Prez - I would not trade Loui for BR. Ryan’s contract is even worse

Peter Chiarelli on Karlsson:

“I won’t lie. When he came to our division, there was an expletive coming out of my mouth. He’d be nice to have here, but we weren’t on his list. It was a non-starter.”

If he wouldn't go to Edmonton, he definitely wasn't coming here!

Bo looks smaller but has tree trunks for legs. Brock sure looks beefed & buffed.

.75 more per, better shooter and passer, not as good defensively. Not swedish. Better O face.
I think I'd do it, especially if they retained some due to erikson not making as much cash.

True but many players rather have Vancouver’s lifestyle than Edmonton’s.

That said i think he wants a cup & the only shot we have at him is IF we do an amazing turnaround. The kids will decide that.

LE has a heavy bonus contract. Melnyk wouldn’t like that if a lockout/strike. Rather have LE & his defence & see if he can rebound.

Ryan was even more useless than Loui last year and I think he will continue to decline at a steeper rate due to his body composition. Loui will probably always be a huge disappointment but I suspect he can continue to be a defensively responsible player and a solid PK guy. Ryan needs prime offensive minutes to generate anything. Guy has a better chance of being in the AHL than the NHL in two years imo

Not even for more points and the fact that Ryan is less injury prone than LE?

Oh sorry see above* lol

I outlined my thoughts above. I just think the guy is a turtle that will continue to regress. I don’t want Ryan blocking Dahlen next season and the seasons after. Loui can at least play down the lineup effectively

My issues are not with LE but is about he was miscast when signed here. Sure he hasn’t earned his contract but the timing was also a problem. I’ve said many times a line make-up is duos & the compliment/3rd wheel. The chemistry they all have is what a coach seeks. It further explains why i keep Sven/Bo/BB together. Building the 2nd scoring line is what will be fun to watch. The new PP oughta be interesting as well.

Ignoring a contract i see LE fine with Sutter or EP. Whatever makes him gel is fine & i see more PP time in his future.

I think Bo carries his weight in his butt and legs.

I remember meeting Matt Cooke years ago. I dwarfed him by at least 6 inches in height, but he was huge from the hips down.

Power/Speed is generated from the lower body. The core being the beginning. Muscle bound upper body players rarely are fast or quick or agile. Sure its about quick/slow muscle twitch composition in the end but in hockey centre of gravity has a lot to do with skating ability.

Anyone here who has played a high level of hockey or likes to golf finds their core lets them down as they get older. Back pain etc
