NHL Thread: Season 2018-2019
 
Capitals have won the Cup and now we have to look forward to is the NHL Draft. Fun times ahead, if perhaps a bit dry.

Watching Ovechkin and the caps celebrate in crazy fashion just makes me want to see a Canadian cup win. Preferably the Leafs for me, but any of Canada's cities would go absolutely nuts.

Yikes. Trotz just resigned.

He said this was his least season in WSH during the handshake line from Round 1. Going out with a Stanley Cup is pretty good, IMO, if that's the way he's going.

Alternatively, from Pierre Lebrun:
Barry Trotz had a clause in his contract where if he won the Stanley Cup he could accept a two-year extension with a $300k bump in salary. Obviously since he was only making $1.5M, low by today's NHL coach's standards, a $1.8-million salary doesn't cut it. So Trotz stepped down.

So the Caps may not have wanted to pay him, he may want longer term, or he's simply retiring. :haha:

Looks like he's going into free agency. Other teams now have permission to talk to him. Could see the Islanders make a move for him as part of their shake-up

DoubleK Jun 18, 2018 8:15 PM

Free agency for the one and only job that's available? Hard to believe the Caps would let Trotz walk to a team in the same division.

Further, I can't see a single team that would dump their current coach for him. Especially not with the draft coming fast.

suburbanite Jun 18, 2018 8:40 PM

Caps don't have a choice anymore. If they couldn't come to an agreement he's on the open market.

Oilers 30th, McDavid 294pts.

Fixed.

Doug Wilson just made out like a bandit.

He gets rid of Mikkel Boedker and trades a 6th round pick in exchange for a 2nd, a 4th and two 5th round picks, plus $4 million in cap space

Taylor Hall!

Good on him. Idiot Oilers management.

It was close: 1,264 to 1,194 in the voting results (72 to 60 first place votes.)

Don't forget that the pick used to take Barzal originally belonged to Edmonton. . .

HomeInMyShoes Jun 21, 2018 4:13 PM

Double congratulations then.

JHikka Jun 21, 2018 5:29 PM

The fun isn't over yet. Chiarelli is looking to move 10th overall for a quality defenseman. :haha:

This is on the same day they bought out Eric Gryba, which is interesting given that they could have buried him in the AHL for $0 but instead bought him out which will cost them $300K/season. They signed him a year ago.

HomeInMyShoes Jun 21, 2018 5:50 PM

Full of wisdom he is not.

Denscity Jun 23, 2018 1:29 PM

Surprised no one is talking about their new draft pick(s).

If only you arm chair Oiler bashing Fuctards knew how cancerous he was in the dressing room....never mind the dressing room not being big enough for his head. I've heard insane stories right from Oilers mgmt what an asshole this guy was and that they had to make a choice - make it McDavids team or Hall's team.....it could never ever be both.....now go back rooting for whatever pathetic Eastern team you're a card carrying fan club member of......

blueandgoldguy Jun 23, 2018 6:28 PM

I can't help but believe some of those stories in the Oilers dressing room are either manufactured or exaggerated thus justifying the mediocre return Edmonton received for Hall.

You gotta feel sorry for Oiler fans, and it's quite understandable that their fans would lash out angrily at others. They got a pretty good D prospect in Bouchard, but he's a few years away. Do the Oilers dare make another trade for a top 4 defenceman?

Speaking of teams with a poor D, the Canucks managed to land Quinn Hughes. Things aligned pretty good for the Canucks on draft day as after Dahlin was selected by Buffalo, no defencemen were taken until the Canucks turn came up, so they were able to select the guy they were most interested in.

Hughes is a gifted offensive defenseman so the Canucks should have one helluva a power play with Boeser on the left side, and Pettersson on the right, and Hughes quarterbacking.

He can play within two years. Was logging insane minutes per game on a mediocre London team. He's exactly what the Oilers need on the backend.
