So the question for these various guys who were traded is did they see a jump in production because the change of scenery did them good, because they play with better teammates, or because they are simply finally blossoming after getting a few seasons of NHL experience under their belts?

Well, there are probably a lot of reasons. Just getting out of Arizona could be one. Domi and Strome just didn't jibe with the coach and management there, for whatever reason. And then Montreal and Chicago upped both centers minutes to a healthy 17-min range, put them on the first and second lines instead of the fourth, and just trusted them to get it done.

Domi is a strange one because he’s playing pretty much the same amount as he did in Arizona. He didn’t get some huge boost in ice time or usage. Maybe he’s playing with better guys this season.

First line, no healthy scratches.

It's not like Arizona didn't get good players in return (Galchenyuk and Schmalz, who was good til he got injured). But that's TWO Seguin trades in one season for Chayka. Nill needs to get on that with whoeveer they have left, which is, uh.... Lawson Krouse? *f-bomb*.

Ducks just fired their shitty coach.... and replaced him with a stuffed suit who has never coached a day in his life.



That's some hardcore tanking.

IKR? If he doesn't lose every single game, he's done his job.

(which lines him up perfectly to replace Nill at the end of the year)

This trade makes absolutely no sense to me.

So has Edmonton run out of former players to make GM and they’re now on to brothers of former players? If that’s a glimpse into our future, then I look forward to the Bart Hull administration.
