Hey Colby – What do you think about 3 points for a regulation win, 2 points for a win in OT, and 1 point for an OT loss? Would create a little more urgency at the end of games.
I’ll come up with a tough one maybe, but I’m in Calgary so hard to get poster 🙁
I will find a way to get that poster to you if you win. Don’t you worry, pal.
My hot take… Not only do I feel that Tkachuk is upgrade on Huberdeau but that moving Weegar is th reason we are getting a career year from Montour, who I feel is an upgrade on Weegar.
However, summer is gonna be all about upgrading the back end with eyes on Matt Dumba and maybe just maybe handing things over to Knight with Lyon as backup ( gotta love recency bias)
Ekblad has lost a step, whether it’s current injury, prior injury or just plain father time, his play has been noticeable down. Refereeing has not helped the Panthers, not one single bit. It seems every bad call has gone against us. Then when we complain, they penalize us again. This is the year of the tripping call, seems we’re good for at least two a game these days, it’s been rough man. Forsling is becoming one of the most underrated players in the league, he is among the league leaders in plus-minus over the last two years, he’s as solid… Read more »
The Panthers knew they were going into this year with cap issues and a new coach / system, Do you feel management conceded this season and are focused on next year and beyond? If so, how could Zito leave the first round pick he traded unprotected from a deep draft next year? Even if he truly felt we would be a playoff team, that is still a glaring error.
Similar to some other comments: do you think Zito appreciated the cap implications this season of the Tkachuk trade/his signings?
We played an insane number of games down a player before the Hornqvist injury which, from my estimate, cost us 4-5 points. I’m guessing this will be within the margin that we miss the playoffs by, which is frustrating to say the least.
Mark Staal being in the top 4 is a liability.
