Free agent invites, HAMMER prized draft picks in scrimmage at leafs development camp.

The good news here is that it's possible to go from having a terrible rookie development camp (and get called out by your organization) and end up being the best player not in the nhl within a few short months

THREE PLAYOFF TEAMS WHO COULD MISS IN 2017-18, AND THREE NON-PLAYOFF TEAMS WHO COULD GET IN

3. Ottawa Senators (My projection: fourth in Atlantic Division, ninth in East)

I entered the summer determined to finally start believing in the Senators. They pushed the eventual Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins to double overtime of Game 7 in the Eastern Conference final. Erik Karlsson is a top-three player in the world and makes Ottawa dangerous singlehandedly. Craig Anderson remains an above-average netminder despite his advanced age. The Sens have a pretty deep forward corps, too, led by outstanding two-way force Mark Stone. Ottawa also has two mega-prospects who could make an impact this year and change the seasonal outlook: defenseman Thomas Chabot and center Colin White.

I thus expect Ottawa to remain competitive again even though it’ll probably continue posting subpar possession numbers after finishing 22nd in 5-on-5 Corsi For percentage last season. The problem: it’s very difficult to imagine Tampa Bay not returning to the playoffs. The Bolts missed by one point last year. The Carolina Hurricanes also look vastly improved over in the Metropolitan division and could steal a wild-card spot from that side.

The Sens are fresh off a gruelling, overachieving post-season run, and the teams around them improved, while they aren’t guaranteed to do the same unless their rookies blow expectations out of the water. They could play close to as well as last year and simply get passed by Tampa, forcing the Sens to scratch and claw for the No. 8 seed

Even sillier when Marner won't have an impact at the NHL level and Matthews gets sent to the AHL

Word is Leafs are desperate to upgrade their defense. If they sign Shattenkirk at 8 years for $65m, some of you guys are going to look somewhat silly.

And could you please answer this, Spats? Thanks.


So, you think it is just a figment of my imagination that the Leafs signed a bunch of old guys including a Dman who all be 39 when he finishes his contract.
- spatso

A one year, a two year, and a three year that will probably be a two year. Those are the contracts to the older players. Can you please explain to me how these players or their contracts will have a negative impact on the team? Without just pulling up opinion tweets or written pieces from 'reporters'.

We are now winding down a typical koolaid filled sens summer. Fans are beginning to notice the stories being floated that Shabot might not be ready for NHL prime time. Dreams off acquiring Duchene for spare parts got a harsh reality check with Nate Thompson being the only help coming. Concerns are starting to rise about Boucher’s track record and his ability squeeze out another playoff year from a mediocre Sens team that is sort of like a less talent Toronto crew from the JFJ years.

But Sens fans are great hockey fans and now that the silly summer chatter is winding down, they are getting around to a more balanced level of hockey discussion. Any remaining hope will come crashing down with a few early season losses. Anger and frustration will build, but it is not long lasting. Come early March, the knowledge that they won’t have to buy playoff tickets will sooth any pain.
