Well, if you're playing Vegas, what do you figure, you'll have to wait an extra five games?

All this high 1st round pick talk maybe another option would be packaging your 1st with Huberwho and trading for a 3rd. Might be the only way to get rid of Trevlings high priced anchor

Salaries too high. If you’re forced to retain salary might as well keep the player. He’s played good… just not for the salary.

Different than Nurse who is way over paid and screws up a lot.

I think I'd rather have the pick honestly. For 24/25, one or two UFA/RFA on their top 3 lines or top 3 pairings and a projected cap space of $18M. Who are we going to sign for $28M that we couldn't with $18M?


Maybe if you're thinking really long term, like in 27-28, but the next few years are going to be tough, with or without Huberdeau, so I'd rather they keep the pick. Maybe they'll get lucky and snag a Seider, Hughes, Mittelstadt, Tkachuk, Keller type with their 1st pick in the 5-10 range.

Even if that happens, I'd rather be in the dance than sitting at home in the basement like a loser.

Sucks those Ronald McDonald color-scheme jerseys have to be put away for another spring hey? lol

Do you think the boys will be able to pull off a loss to the Sharks tonight? It would be something if they could.

I think they have it in them!

Montreal won big time tonight, so they and Ottawa are currently within one.

Fingers crossed. If they play their best games I feel player for player Edmonton right now, this year is the best team they’ve had and can be unbeatable

Not sure about that, if last night was any indication I think they will do OK, but we all know playoffs is a different game.

Never under estimate the Oilers!

I know I've harped on it before, but man, that Lindholm trade....

I'm basically at the point were if it was Lindholm for Kuzmenko, we'd have still won the trade. He has four more goals than Lindholm has points, and we got a 1st round pick, arguably the best dman in the OHL, and their 4th.

-Johnny Gaudreau, 12 goals this season;
-Jonathan Huberdeau, 12 goals this season;
-Andrei Kuzmenko, 14 goals in in 28 games as a Flame!

Still think it's hilarious that T.J. Brodie has the same amount of goals as I do this year.

Guess I can hope for the lottery win now.

I do not care who wins the cup this year as long as it is a Canadian team this time around

Our version of Games 7 of the cup final tonight!

Sure hope it's a good outcome. At the very least that we don't drop.
