If the Flyers win a Stanley Cup with Hextall as GM, does he go on the mountain?

If there was any franchise who had a MT Rushmore set is stone for the foreseeable future, it is the Islanders with Bossy, Potvin, Trottier and Smith.

IF JT wins a cup, I could replace Smith. If we wind up making a cup final, win many playoff series and he gets to 1000 points or higher, I guess an argument could convince me otherwise. Until then, the 4 remains the same.

I think PIT too

Lemieux
Jagr
Malkin
Crosby

Not gonna top that ever.

I fully admit to being extraordinarily spoiled as a Pens fan. After Jagr was traded and we entered the greatness that was the Rico Fata era, I never thought I'd see the likes of Lemieux and Jagr again. Then Crosby and Malkin came along and all was right with the world.

People just need to accept the truth of this.

Fun story: One time during the offseason he was rehabbing a shoulder injury so my dad and I invited him to come out and play a few games in our beer league just to get moving again. He came, and was like, "Matt, we're gonna get you a few goals tonight. Anytime I've got the puck, just go to the net with your stick on the ice and I'll take care of the rest." I scored like 6 goals that night, but actually didn't. He would just BANK PUCKS IN OFF MY STICK. It didn't matter where he or I was on the ice - he would just make it happen.

It's amazing the skill level of even someone who was "just" a career minor leaguer.

Happy Birthday! I hope for your sake and sanity the Rangers aren't planning on another 54-year gap between cups like 1940 - 1994.

Haha thanks! I also hope we grab one sooner than 54 years! I won't hold my breath though!

And on top of all that, the post was "edited." I'm not the greatest lawyer or anything like that, but that guy really shouldn't be posting stuff like that on Facebook. Particularly if he is going to come off sounding like an illiterate Justin Bieber fan.

Look who they have at #9. Pretty cool to see Leddy on this list, whether I agree with it or not. It's mostly stat driven. It's going to wind up that Garth fleeced Chicago for Leddy.

I mean, not to discredit your list or anything, but Mark Giordano and Duncan Keith behind Jake Muzzin? This list is garbage.

lockman21 08-17-2015 11:20 PM

Re: The NHL Thread
 
Also, to say Chicago got "fleeced" with trade is a little...wrong.

It allowed them to keep Brad Richards, a player the Hawks don't win the Cup without. Leddy was never going to be in the role in Chicago that he deserved or would excel in.

Why can't it be a win/win? Because I think it was. PLUS, we still don't know what Ville Pokka can be.

Hence, in my original post, saying "whether I agree with it or not". Obviously, no one is taking Muzzin over those 2, though Muzzin is a nice player. Those advanced stats don't tell everything.

And yes, both teams can "win" the trade. I have to admit I was very impressed with Leddy. He got better as the season went on and he was a much better player than I thought we were getting. And at age, I am curious to see how much better he can get.

He should be very, very good. I always loved the kid, and was a huge defender of his when some people in this thread...without mentioning any names...talked about what a huge liability he was defensively.

I think we'll see him really hit his stride here this year, and even more so the next. At least that's what I hope. Top 10 in the league? Eh, maybe a stretch, but who knows? Maybe he will be. All-star capable? Absolutely.

I think we can see him be this generation's Brian Campbell.

I think he could and should be better defensively than soupy, though maybe a notch below offensively. Pretty good comp, though. I'd take perennial all star. I'm not thinking Norris finalist or anything.

His contract , panned when first signed, will be a bargain in the coming years.
