    Offensively there isn't a problem but he has not been very good defensively. Still too many turnovers and not protecting his end well enough to be considered a top 2 or 3 defensemen. He needs to be better on that end.

    I don't believe anyone counted on, Carter and Toffoli for this year? Time and a major injury has caught up to Carter and it happens. Toffoli seems to have lost the hunger like a few have after winning the ultimate prize. I do believe Toffoli will do better with another team and I'm OK with that.

    What other team in the league wants a high price, low producing product?

    The Luc and Rob show held on to under-performing assets far too long in the name of selling snake oil tickets to season seat holders on some sort of "window still open" nonsense.
    I don't know either, but if it continues I'd like to see something be done that we wouldn't expect to have been done. #shrug

    Given they know this team isn't going anywhere this year, they are going to give Kempe, Kovi and Carter a good look and opportunity to sink or swim. If they continue to suck, I don't expect any of them to be here next season.

    I don't think anyone is expecting to see Luc, Blake and McClellan to be canned before the quarter mark of the season. Can we start there?

    I found the comments very interesting and very telling. I think there is a new, experienced sheriff in town and he has a 5 year contract to get this team straightened out ...

    The stats don't lie.

    Its way past time for Top Titty to go. Should have dealt him after he **** the bed in 2016/17, and then after he rebounded the following year.

    Last year, he was a liability. Last night, he was a Pylon.
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    Jeff Carter would be a great addition to the Reign.

    He could make them a powerhouse in the AHL.
