Sorry, don't mean to intrude, I am sure your comment was directed at me, so I will respond to this.  Its apples and orangutangs. 

The player you are mentioning is in a leadership position and under a binding contract for a number of years, the other a pending free agent.

The situations are far from equal, and barely similar.



Not that dissimilar. You are advocating for a leadership position for Dubois. Dubois is a restricted free agent who absolutely will be under contract if we want him to be for 2 years. Dubois is just as much a part of the team as Scheifele at this moment in time.

Two years of team control - pretty similar.

More unexpected from MS, given the history and his well documented work ethic and goal setting early in his career, which is probably what set a lot of people off.


All I want is clarity on the players and coaches in flux and a direction from the team.

Sign 'em up and go for a play off run or trade 'em all and go for draft picks.

I just want to know.

Toxic attitude.

I expect we will be shipping you out after such a comment.

You didn't explain how they're different situations. Objectively, they're really not.

You and everyone else. This has been agonizing.

Not that dissimilar. You are advocating for a leadership position for Dubois. Dubois is a restricted free agent who absolutely will be under contract if we want him to be for 2 years. Dubois is just as much a part of the team as Scheifele at this moment in time.

The "difference" is negligible, if not nonexistent. If the ship doesn't get turned around, the team could potentially lose both players in two years time.

And now it sounds like the Bruins are closing in on Montgomery as their next HC... Ugh.

This off-season is just garbage.

The Winnipeg Jets and veteran coach Rick Bowness are working on finalizing his agreement to be the next coach of the Jets. This will end a thorough interview process for the @NHLJets that began with Barry Trotz as the target. Experience a key factor here.

Well, they went and hired another 1.0 guy.

I don't think I could be more disappointed. Certainly not looking forward to next season.

Gets a giant "yawn" from me....I still hold to the fact we should have started over with the GM position as well...stale Chevy isn't going to take this team further...

Lame signing. 
Nice fifth line guy during 1.0
Entire career a door opener and screamer at refs.
His "Schtlick" is blatantly useless today.

If I am a. Player I am out of here. At the first opportunity.
Jets have zero in the pipeline other than role players at best.
I wouldn't be surprised if all their. Players making 4 million plus are out of here as soon as they can

Jets will be out of here in five years.
Chipman has a death wish to keep,Chevaldayoff.  He can't build a sand castle.  He gets a player here, and then the first chance they can they leave, they do so. Same old, no one wants to come here.

Pretty sad.  We all have to move to a Someplace with low taxes.

Yikes.  The glory years... 2018.
What a great exciting new signing! Who can see a 100 pt season? Raise your hand!
Anyone?
Buhler?

Pretty meh development. This has been the most frustrating off-season in a while, if not ever.
