    Yesterday’s summary: No Dallas Stars, no money. And I had no Dallas Stars.

    Looks like I am going to have a lot of WPG today. I expect many to load up on MTL/VAN – I will have a few pieces of MTL (Gallagher has to score eventually right?) but not that much. If Toffoli scores 2 or 3 tonight, good luck to him.

    5 games on a Saturday and there are 11 on Sunday this week with NFL Championship games on Sunday. Maybe this has happened before but usually Saturday has a bunch of games and Sunday there are just a few. Could be wrong but it seems off

    Anyone have any takes on the early showdown with the lightning and bluejackets?

    No idea of the salary etc. but I think I’d rather have Laine and Roslovic.

    I was trying to get more info. PLD has one year left on contract Laine does not so I’m guessing Jets knew they couldn’t resign him so tried to get what they could. Just shocking quite honestly and if PLD didn’t like Torts, Paul Maurice not a huge improvement plan on getting yelled at in Winnipeg too

    I’m a Jets season ticket holder. On the surface this trade sucks, and I’m crushed we’ve given up on Laine.

    With that being said though, the Jets now have some insane depth at Centre (Schiefele, Dubois, Stastny, Lowry is the best C depth in the league IMO) and if Laine wasn’t going to re-sign anyways you at least get value for your asset.

    I don’t think its as bad a trade as folks are making it out to be, but IMO Columbus got the best player in the deal.

    My buddy’s cousin is Connor Hellebuyck so even though I live in Michigan and am a Wings fan I have been following Winnipeg much closer since Connor was drafted by the Jets. It has made the Wings rebuild a little more to tolerable having the Jets to root for during it. I agree that I think Winnipeg and Columbus both made out good in this. Laine and Roslovic made it clear they wanted out so you got a very good player under contract for at least another year maybe longer in PLD for players who were going to leave anyway. I was just surprised that after all the bs that took place with PLD that Columbus was able to pull off a deal like that. Columbus needs scoring and Laine can help with that but he wanted out partly because he butted heads with Maurice, good luck with Torts…

    Has Galchenyuk been scratched already? Can’t find any news on him, and he is off the the line sites.

    according to LWL this was morning skate lines

    Tkachuk/Norris/Batherson
    Paul/Anisimov/Dadovov
    Tierney/Stephan/Brown
    Haley/Paquette/Watson

    per Wayne Scanlan @HockeyScanner “White, Galchenyuk and Coburn are healthy scratches tonight”

    Looking that way based on the morning skate lines:

    #sens lines this morning in Winnipeg
    Tkachuk Norris Batherson
    Tierney Stepan C.Brown
    Paul Anisimov Dadonov
    Haley Paquette Watson
    Galchenyuk Stützle White

    Chabot Zaitsev
    Reilly J. Brown
    Wolanin Gudbranson
    Coburn Zub

  • OttawaCityMadman

    thanks. Stutzle might be back in. Might be a game time

  • qatman

    Hm, Stepan on 3rd line going to make me rethink things.

    Winnipeger here too. Not sure on all the hate for this deal. People are going to wise up to how good Dubois really is real fast. Columbus system suppressed his offensive Ability.

    Ehlers Shief Wheeler
    statsny Dubois Connor
    Copp Lowry Appleton
    Vesalainen Harkins Lewis

    And send Perreault as far away as you can

    Looks pretty good to me.

  • cplatt87

    Anyone brave enough to take a flyer on Corey Perry at min price on DK tonight? He’s going to be in Armia’s spot on the 3rd line and I imagine that game will once again be high scoring.

    Obviously no guarantee he does much of anything, but I’ve rostered worse min priced players before.

  • zovyn

    So…… Toffoli tonight is the textbook example of expected negative regression, right?

    I’m not touching him. He’s priced up and a lot of people are going to be chasing points. If he burns me, so be it.

    I played him his last 2 games and he won me good money, so I’ll keep playing him until he regresses, which hopefully won’t be tonight.
