Who's your next ranked d-man after Dahlin?

Bouchard/Dobson/Boqvist were all pretty even. Oilers didn't need Boqvist as he's more of an offensive guy...they needed more of a guy who can play defense and move pucks. Both Bouchard and Dobson do that well.

Ok. Just curious what your opinion was. You seem to follow junior hockey. I thought you might have Quinn Hughes in there. At 18 years old he managed to crack the US team for WC. A good sign for somebody who might be criticized for being too small.

Hughes is just below that group, IMO. Smaller size, one of the best skaters you'll see at that age. Defensive play isn't as strong but he's going to help offensively. I like the idea of him playing on that Vancouver team in a few years.

Making the US WC team at 18 is a bit less impressive when you consider that they usually send a younger team. Theyre not afraid to send NCAA players to WC.

Dobson went to the NY Islanders as the 12th overall pick.

Summerside PEI is busting out in pride over him and Gerard Gallant (NHL Coach of the Year).

I asked for your opinion so thanks for you feedback. Hope you don't mind some counterpoints...

Doing a bit of research going back to 2011, most NCAA players named to IIHF team were 20 and older. I could only find 2 players going back to 2011, that were selected for the team at age 18. That was Jack Eichel and Dylan Larkin. The youngest defenceman selected for the team were 21 years old.

Looking at various draft rankings, Quinn Hughes is second D ranked the most times. http://www.mynhldraft.com/2018-draft...draft-rankings.

As much as I'd love for the Sens to join the Habs in mediocrity for the foreseeable future, I hope Melnyk sells the team. It's bad for the game and fans don't deserve to be screwed over by an owner that can handicap the on-ice performance.

Might be too late to keep Karlsson though.

Since the Habs bought out Mason, do you think the Jets will sign Mason for cheap, or they’ll move to someone else? Their goaltending depth is very thin, and Comrie is not at a competent level that Mason is.

It’s gonna be weird for me seeing Armia in a Habs jersey. Dude’s a stud with the Jets. It’s a shame that he’ll won’t be playing in his native Finland in November. At least he has four other Finns in the lineup, along with prospect Kotkaniemi, who apparently grew up in the same town Armia did.

Some early Free Agent Frenzy speculation from TSN

- JVR to Philly 5yr/$35M
- Derek Ryan to Calgary 3yr / $?
- David Perron to St Louis

Free Agency 'officially' opens at noon today.

Vancouver signing Beagle to 4x3 and Roussel to 4x3.25

Stastny leaving Winnipeg for Vegas. Rumours that Vegas are interested in Karlsson and are willing to take on Bobby Ryan...

This Tavares saga needs to end so I can stop checking my phone every 5 minutes.

As long as it's not Boston or Tampa.

Best Canada Day ever.

Years of insufferable Leafs fans claiming every hometown star has finally paid off.

Tavares to Toronto. Seven years, $11M average annual.

Staying off the internet and social media for ten years to avoid Leafs fans.

The Jays and TFC will be taking a backseat to this signing for about a month.

Also cue the bullshit media talk from bill simmons about how this will drive Matthews away. Can't wait.

You're much more optimistic than me then.

Defense hasn't gotten any better unless Dermott has some spectacular breakout season. There is something to be said for losing jvr and bozak and replacing them with young guys who are much more active in their own zone though.

Andersen had a spectacular season last year, apart from an awful October he would've been a more serious consideration for the vezina. The leafs would be heavily relying on him to carry a lacklustre defense to the finals ala Matt Murray and the pens.
