With all of this money being thrown about all crazy-like, I'm really nervous as to what Marner is going to get. Could mean 40% of the Leafs cap going to 3 players.

He's also 2 years younger - we haven't seen Wilson's ceiling yet

The hokey parts of the awards stuff was definitely very bad. But the uplifting stories and features were really good.

Do we need to give Ricky one? He brought it up enough that I think he's secretly jealous/sad that he's never gotten one.

Yeah, how much did the voters drink out of a whiskey bottle before casting their ballots? Some of those picks were absurd but I admit a few were no brainers.

I know this is a hockey threat but take a peek at his video from the US women's national soccer team where a goal was scored. Can anoyone see this ball being deflected because I see someone burning the defense, picking her spot and placing it perfect. ONly reason I am posting this in here too is because we all know plenty about deflections!

I thought most of the awards were well-deserved (a defenseman who can actually play defense won the Norris - FINALLY).

And like Kev said, there were some really heartwarming moments (Carey Price, Lehner's speech, etc.)

But the gimmicks were just awful.

Some that stuck out to me:

Goals can now be reviewed if there was an infraction prior to the goal being scored (puck hitting the netting, hand pass, etc. Sound familiar?)

Coaches can now initiate as many Coach's Challenges as they want, but will be assessed penalties for every unsuccessful challenge

Referees are now required to review every major or match penalty they call and have the option of reducing the penalty upon review (ahem, Vegas fans)

If a player loses his helmet on the ice he has to put it back on immediately or exit the ice (unless he's directly involved with the play)

For a face-off following an icing or to begin a PP, the attacking team gets to pick the face-off dot.

down goes brown was harping on this one. They don't have the option to make it no penalty at all. So if they review and totally missed what actually happened, they still have to call a minor. And refs might be more inclined to call majors now, knowing that they can review and reduce - resulting in more replay time.. Who knows, my first thought is "it can't get worse", but it's the NHL so it probably can.

This sounds like an unclear gray area. Really think they should minimize those.

Overall though, good for the league for taking real action.

Yeah it definitely is. I can see it being a scenario like a player moving up the ice with the puck, he skates through a check, losing his helmet in the process. The ref will let him finish his rush, with the expectation that as soon as he shoots/dishes off the puck/whatever, he'll go get his lid or leave the ice.

Even still, some gray area. Good refs are communicative and will probably let the player know when he expects him to get off. I imagine they'll be pretty lenient.

Agreed, youíd have to think the refs will err on the side of lenience with that one. Good point.

Steve Yzerman throwing a curveball with that pick. Looks like a solid defenseman with offensive upside but I did not think he would go that high. Good pick but Yzerman still has some work to do in Detroit. The look on that kids face when they announced his name was priceless.

No other big surprises in the first few picks for me - top two were no brainers IMO, Chicago wanted a center so it was either Dach or Turcotte, CO getting Byram makes that team even more dangerous (particularly if they can slot him on that PP of theirs!) and I believe LA was going to pick whichever C Chicago didn't.

Avs CLEANED UP at the draft. So happy with their two picks. Their blue line in the near future will be:

Makar
Girard
Timmins
Byram

Wow.

Also cool: Nolan Foote (Adamís boy) was drafted by the Lightning, where his brother Cal also plays.
