Goodbye playoffs for CBJ

Another year of disappointment. What else is new? Bring on Buckeye Football...the REAL heart of this city and not this circus sideshow act that only draws in people for the free Hot Chocolate and Papa John's.

Bro..its over. Im over this team

Im sick and tired of having to be an apologist and make excuse after excuse for this team just because I love my city so much and it hurts my heart to attack anything or anyone from my home town but..this team has 0 heart, 0 will to compete at a high level and a bunch of selfish individuals who don't care about being here, don't care about our community, don't care about the ultimate goal of winning and are here because they don't have a choice.

People move here from all over because of the opportunities here and it's a great place to live; damn anyone who says otherwise and to see it so poorly represented in a professional context by a team that for the majority of its 20-year span has just laughed in our faces and failed to put out a good product when it matters the most is just an abomination. This must be how Pirates fans in Pittsburgh feel.

Idk, the pirates actively sabotage themswlves solely to save money. I always thought the jackets stunk cause of poor scouting and drafting.

Hard to argue with your first paragraph though. I saw the other day that the top line has basically given up scoring. Panarin has all the talent in the world but I wouldnt want him on the Pens.

Honestly,

He’s not an awful player. He hit some posts early in the year and just can’t score. Going to break the record for most shots in a season without a goal.

I’m sure you’re asking because of what happened but here is what happened.

Our CEO who is the former head of Hockey Canada was at a lunch for season ticket holders. He was asked about Toby and basically replied with “we expected 12-15 goals and if we had that, we’d be in the playoffs” among other things.

The fan base went nuts. We’re not happy. To his credit he went on the biggest local sports afternoon show and just answered questions for 20 minutes and they weren’t powder puff ones either.

This organization is a fucking joke. It’s so sad. They live off the Cups of the 80’s. Celebrate then every 5 years and still employ so many old players it’s laughable.

I’ll go into more tomorrow when it’s not 3am.

Well cheers to being fucked over every year by our teams!

Well I totally get where the CEO is coming from. He signed him to a one year bridge deal to play with Drai and thought dude would try super hard to get a big long term deal. Instead hes goalless and demoted to the fourth line for months.

Im sure owners, GMs, and coaches have discussions like that every day but saying them publically is bizaar bizzar.

So really what I'm asking is how does he play, like does he show effort and play with heart? Or has he been mailing it in all year?

Nothats the thing. He plays hard all the time. Kills penalties. Is quite fast and a good PK guy because of it. It isn’t because he doesn’t care that’s for sure

12 goals would really help though right

12 goals from him. More than 5 from Lucic making 6 mil. Goaltending that wasn’t shit. Trading your 4th leading scorer for Brandon Manning who is now being health bombed in the minors....


All adds up

Bolts gonna have 3, 40 goal scorers this year plus another 4 or so over 20. Insanity

The other 3 lines, d, and goaltending...not so much

Hence why they have McDavid, Leon, Nuge, Nurse, Chiasson and Kassian having career years and won’t make he playoffs.

Auston Mathews going to make 2.5 mil more a year than Leon starting next year.

Leon is 4th in league scoring. Mathews is 4th in Leafs scoring.

Didn't he miss like 20 games?

Like 15 I think. Just like every other season he’s been on the league. He ain’t worth it and it’s the reason the leafs only signed him 5 years. He’ll be on a different team when he’s a free agent

Mathews has played 9 less games than McDavid and has 41 less points. He will make 1 mil less than McDavid next year. Leafs will have to pay Marner the same or close to and he’s at 90 points, is a better player in both ends and stays healthy. Makes me happy knowing the Leafs are fucked.

Are they though? They have enough cap space for Marner and Kapanen, but not Gardner. They'll need to dump someone like Marleau, which shouldn't be that hard. Just toss in a draft pick to a team like Vancouver.

No they don’t. They are in trouble. Especially if Marner wants 10-11 mil and Kapenen wants 6 mil. Nylander needs to be traded though the GM promised him he won’t be

Johansen also needs re upped and Marleau has full NMC. Fuck the Buds


Kush- seems as though all the deadline deals have paid off thus far. Can you confirm?

Gubrandsen has been ok. According to Canucks fans we were getting someone that was absolute garbage and hes been anything but.

Nick Bjugstad has been ok. Seems to be coming into his own as a shutdown 3rd line center.

Jared McCann has been lights out. The Nick Bjugstad trade will be remembered as the Jared McCann trade. Someone advestised as a toss in has been the best pick up, by far.

His sick ass shorty from the other day:

I knew MCCann was doing well but stats aren’t everything so figured I’d ask.

You heard of the podcast Spittin Chiclets? As a hockey fan I think you’d enjoy it. Couple former players. One being Ryan Whitney who you may recall and they just talk honestly. Give a few episodes a try. Today’s ep they had Kerry Fraser, former head official on and its was tremendous
