    Why does he even care? Or was he specifically asked about it?

    Sounds like he's just playing to the fan base.

    I’m fine with that as long as he was asked about it, not just coming out with it on his own I guess

    That's weird. I would have expected him to come out and say he's not as good as Kravtsov and the Rangers made a good decision to pass on him.

    This literally means nothing.

    The 8000 crybabies who are too scared to take the LIRR 45 minutes to Brooklyn. Good luck with that.

    Bah, he may be playing with Barzal.

    Still wish we selected Wahlstrom, hope I'm wrong. I had Kravtsov right behind Dobson and Bouchard and would have loved to trade up for him after securing Oliver. I think Josh and I talked about the Florida pick at 15, but didn't think he'd make it. Dunny wanted him. Drew thought highly. Didn't Fatty want him, but didn't think he'd make it to 26? Whatever.

    To be psyched to have to endure the worst record of 31 just to have a 16% chance at Hughes is beyond comprehension. It is so not worth contemplating as a strategy at the beginning of any season, that it continues to shock me to see fans suggest it.

    Realistically, expect mgmt to ice as talented a team they can w/o compromising the future. Our new coach will be expected to develop potential and build the right culture, which includes winning. We are not starting out the season to lose. Probably a couple of moves before camp and the we begin to see what we got. This is what they mean by being competitive. As we near the deadline, we'll certainly reassess how much of a selloff is in order.

    I like it. Hopefully he's building up a little Kravtsov vs Wahlstrom rivalry.

    He most likely said it because he rather would've been picked by us tho.

    A weak copy of Zadina's message to Montreal. A nice fit considering he's a weak copy of Zadina on the ice.
    Validation: Denied.



    I wanted us to draft him.
