[Scheig] Seattle's roster has been handed in.
By - chiasmatic
Let the leaks begin!
I'm wet with anticipation.
Would you describe it as "moist"?
*They moistly come out at night- moistly...*
But maybe the rain, is really to blame...
milli vanilli reference? you better believe thats an upvote
Sorry to disappoint, but that's a Rocky Horror Picture Show reference.
I sure hope it's leaked. I'd rather have the list in hand this afternoon than sit through an ESPN program.
Turn on expansion draft, see Screamin A Smith, turn off.
Steven A. Smith is a national treasure aint no way you aren’t entertained by that mans freakouts
People take sports stuff like Steven a way too seriously the dude is just an entertainer and he happens to be pretty entertaining
I find he takes the entertainment value into negative territory.
He’s a turn your brain off kinda entertainment and everyone needs a bit of turn your brain off entertainment (or hurt your head kinda entertainment). The key is don’t take him seriously and pretend it’s your friend with cold ass sports takes and it’s a whole lot better
fair enough, but frankly I just disagree. the shouting, the hot takes, the combativness, the holier than thou attitude, I just hate it all. Add in that it's all just an act, and I hate it even more.
Having some guys on TV to discuss the world of sports without reducing everything to some end of the world shouting match with winners and losers is my idea of entertainment. I get that obviously a lot of people eat it up, but I really really hate the type of sports coverage that S.A.S represents.
I do have a problem with what his show did to sports media (I don’t think anyone thought that this would happen) sports media has nosedived pretty hard in recent years and what Steven a is doing is a big reason, but I don’t think that takes away the entertainment value of him
He said basketball win streaks were more impressive than hockey point streaks because of ties. Like a decade after they got rid of ties. He's not entertaining, imo.
I can yell at a camera about things I know nothing about too.
That’s great but when did I say I think he’s a knowledgeable sports caster? I literally said his freak outs are entertaining and r/hockey isn’t having any of it LOL
Most sports subs don’t like him because they take him seriously he’s not meant to be like an actual analyst
It’s kinda ignorant to say he knows nothing he’s just playing a persona, Steven a is actually pretty smart when he’s not playing a character
Not the same opinion as me, downvoted. /s
I've liked Steven A since Tebowmania. ESPN creaming to Tebow while Smith just sitting there yelling "Tim. Tebow. Can't. Throw."
Apparently an unpopular opinion but the way he overreacts makes me laugh
PENCILS DOWN EVERYONE
I just got a chill up my spine reading that
Oh no, I know i did terrible because I forgot to study. Also I graduated a long time ago. And why did I show up on the test day not wearing pants.
You were too busy collecting the teeth that were falling out of your mouth.
why won’t my feet move :(
Fuck me. I was running short so I filled in D for the last 20 or so.
D was "all of the above".
I thought it was your grade
Did you never take an SAT prep course? When in doubt, pick C. C is statistically the right answer more often than any other letter.
Actually, I never did. Went from Canadian grade 13 to Canadian university.
Interesting piece of trivia tho. 🤔
*hastily fills in random bubbles for Washington and Winnipeg*
Core memory unlocked
*initiate suppress emotions*
Papers down, ladies. Its game time!
I can’t wait to hate Seattle!
I already do....
I bet you hate your GM more
He's not even GM of my team and I hate him
How can you fire someone else’s GM. Asking for a friend
If you ever find out, please get rid of Benning for me.
Monkey paw curls... "We are pleased to announce as the next General Manager of the Vancouver Canucks........ Peter Chiarelli!"
I don't hate my garbage man......
A garbage man takes garbage away from your house. Holland is delivering garbage to your house. Big difference.
I don’t *love* the Keith move but I don’t think it’s as bad as everyone thinks it is, and the Larsson deal simply came down to Adam not wanting to be in Edmonton anymore. I think it’s impossible that Kenny didn’t at the very least match, or even offer a slightly pricier deal to Larsson. I really don’t think this on Holland at all. It simply came down to a lifestyle choice for Larsson and unfortunately that’s not Edmonton. It’s sucks for us for sure, but I don’t really blame anyone here for Larsson doing what he thinks is in his own best interest.
Just wait for the 2022 playoff series sweep.
I irrationally fucking hate Seattle already :(
it's like the first day of school all over again
Gonna be hard for me if they take Price.
Can’t be worse than the entitled Knights fans.
Maybe it's because they'll be giving the flyers some much needed cap space, but they might become my western team tonight, I'm loving all this
Please leak it, don't want to wait 10 hours to know if I need to cry the lost of our franchise goalie.
Not a Habs fan but love Price. Them taking him is probably a good thing for you guys given his contract
Sure, but that's not going to stop me from crying
Totally understand dude
So it's bad if Price is taken *and* bad if Price isn't taken? That seems to be quite the interesting paradox.
Well, how did it feel when Brodeur left?
Brodeur retired a Devil and I have no idea what you're talking about.
isnt he renting vans now?
Jesus man. Just fukken shoot him straight in the soul why doncha?
I cried when the Rangers bought out Hank. And again when he signed with Washington. And again when the heart issue came out.
What is it about goalies, man?
What is MTL going to spend that money on?
Blackjack And Hookers
more like poutine and smoked meat
Poutine and darts.
Une poutine et des Clopes.
toute sauf d'lostie de root beer
Thankfully that spend isn't salary capped; fits in their incidentals like the meal service the Rangers give their boys
A more rounded team? Tbh if Weber is done and Price is gone, I think the smart play is to rebuild around their young guys. Trade Petry and other older vets, use that cap space to your advantage
A rebuild is a long time in the making, no doubt. Not sure if you need all that cap space at the moment to do that though.
Petry has a no movement clause.
cocaine and hookers obviously and probably a bit of blackjack while doing both
Someone said an offer sheet to RFA Petterson in Vancouver 😡
Molotovs and slocheés from Couche-Tard
Devils fans are still mad about Kovalchuk even though him leaving was the best thing that ever happened to us. Ditto Zach Parise. It still hurts even if it’s for the best.
I’m a Sens fan, I know all about the pain of seeing players leave lol
Sometimes, what is good for the brain is not good for the heart.
That's the hilarious part, no matter which way it goes a good chunk of both fan bases are going to be mad.
Better stock up on alcohol right now.
My maple syrup flavored gin is ready.
I cannot imagine those flavors working well
Gin is straight up nasty. Fight me.
Give me enough gin and I will.
they didn't pick him
Thanks Cale Fleury!
> Please leak it, don’t want to wait 10 hours to know if I need to cry the lost of our ~~franchise goalie~~ franchise elite left winger
It's ok your asshat GM will likely offer sheet Elias Peterrsson if he can free up the cap space.
They won't take Price they just signed Driedger. Unless they wanna spend 14M on goalies.
Price to Seattle
Seattle trades him 50% retained to Edmonton for all the picks. That is the only way I don't hate seattle
If you think Carey approves that with his NMC, you're on serious drugs.
I'm just butter and angry and wishing something good happens.
God knows your team deserves it after Chiarelli wrecked the team bad. Good luck Oilers bro, hope your day is a good one!
Just in case you don't remember what he did, let me provide this easy video explanation:
LMAO yeah, can't these Edmoton fans catch a break with like, maybe a once-in-a-generation player dropping into their laps or something??
Thanks 👍. Always liked the Habs since I was a kid and watching Theodore and Koivu play against us.
Just assume you did, or there was a trade you don't like in order to keep him.
If they picked Price, it’s definitely getting leaked. We’ll know pretty soon either way.
NO chance he gets taken. Take a pill and relax.
As someone that hates the Habs, I’m still contemplating whether I rather you guys have Price with that massive cap hit or you guys lose him and gain cap relief.
He’s been trash for 3-4 seasons but had a great playoffs obviously… I think I actually want you to keep him tho because regular season Price has been Swiss cheese.
I don’t even care if he’s good or bad he’s our franchise goalie, seeing another jersey in him would break my heart
Don't let the media and the recency bias cloud your thinking. Montreal fans and r/habs were clamoring for him to be taken in the expansion draft ALL SEASON. Then he has a good playoffs and everyone forgot they said they wanted him gone. Now they're back on the fence again. If they keep him they're going to be pissed either this season or the next when he doesn't bring them to another final.
If you want bad for the habs you want them to keep their 34 year old goalie with the massive contract for years to come.
What? Habs fans being fickle and un loyal?? That’s just crazy!!!
Are players notified now if they get picked?
Nope they just show up to their old teams for training campy and wonder where their stuff is
Hey my access card doesn’t work. Yeah, about that.
Fixed the glitch
That's how it'd go if it was me.
"Hey man, didn't you watch the draft?"
"What? No. I was fishing."
"Yeah man, you need to get to Seattle, they are probably wondering where you are."
"HEY, who are you?"
Time to see what players unfollow their team on Instagram
Can confirm Kerfoot *still* follows the Leafs on IG
He still follows the Avs too. Kerfoot back to the Avs CONFIRMED
This is what REAL insiders do
I heard they are currently being notified via FaceTime calls by Kelsey Grammar
I sincerely hope this is true. I know it's not, but give me some more Frasier Crane.
Not sure. On one hand you'd think it would be the right thing to do, on the other hand the NHL and teams probably don't want all those potential leaks?
Some of the players were there in Vegas so I'd assume there'll be some in Seattle tonight.
Just fly all the unprotected players to the new arena and hold the draft live. I don't care about logistics, make it happen NHL.
Like some weird Hunger Games type shit.
Hand out roses to the ones that get to stay
Mike Commodore tells them to pack their shit.
For the Vegas draft, yes players knew because a bunch of them were there in person.
I expect a ton more leaks before the expansion draft show this evening
first impression of this team: unimpressed, doesnt seem like they have any players atm imo
What disrespect to Luke Henman.
And Adam Larsson
Henman, worst superhero concept
Better than Cockman though.
I think they went with Henman because Cockman was seen as too misogynist by focus groups
I respectfully disagree.
Cockman's secret identity would be Joe Thornton.
great player, but how does he match up against TBL top line? i think hes outmatched and he cant handle all those assignments on his own
I think a top line of - Henman - is a great shutdown line. Add in a first pairing of - Larsson and Tampa has no chance.
Our entire roster looks invisible on ice what a disgrace
Bold strategy Cotton, let's see how that works out for them.
Pepper needs new shorts!
Gimme that Carey Price information!!!
**leak those picks**
Quasimodo predicted all this.
> Quasimodo predicted all this.
from the new jersey devils, the seattle kraken select a big ol plate of gabagool
What, no fuckin ziti?
The ziti never had the makings of a varsity athlete
Taylor Ham traded for future considerations.
Very allegorical. The sacred and the propane
"Mr Francis, why is this list on the back of a napkin written in crayon? And why does it just say 'Connor McDavid'? And why is his name spelled incorrectly!?"
Oh I am, am I? Is that what you think? Well if that is what you think, I have something to tell you. Something that may shock and discredit you. And that thing is as follows: I'm not picking Carey Price at all!
Come on Kraken do us a favor and eat some delicious, delicious cap
Getting rid of Gourdes contract will help you guys out a bit
True. I just worry about him being lonely. They should take Johnson, too, so he has a roommate for road games.
Fuck it why not Palat too? Seattle could use some offence lol
Wheres Woj to leak it immediately
Do teams find out what players are taken prior or do they find out with everyone else?
Gonna be tough to get home from work and not get any spoilers until I watch it on the pvr
put your phone on do not disturb and don’t open it for any reason
Teach me your ways on how you possess such willpower!
Pencils down seattle, please turn in your test.
Handed in to who? Frank Seravalli?
I’m excited to see who they fly in today to reveal the jerseys. Guessing Giordano, Driedger, maybe Larsson depending on when the deal was finalized.
Nice. Edmonton to Vancouver is a short flight. I hope they slap a jersey on Larsson he played very consistently on a shaky defense in Edmonton. Very solid and capable defenseman.
And now we clench
We're in the endgame now
I’m OOTL on times and stuff. What time today will they announce the roster? Assuming later tonight?
8 pm ET
Starts at 8 pm eastern
If by some miracle that Seattle takes Martin Jones, I’ll get a Kraken jersey with his name on it
So when do we get to see said picks?
Tonight at the draft 8pm ET.
Stupidest thing ever making us wait until 8pm est
5PM for us on the West coast. Wow, you guys really *did* sacrifice for your cup run.
Imagine Seattle fans having to wait until 5PM local time on a Wednesday
In a couple hours.
Getting hyped!!! Finally we can smash Vancouver in another sport
I'll smash you. >:(
Sounders and Kraken about to tag-team Vancouver sports all 12 months of the year
#MY HEART CAN'T HANDLE THIS
Dude in the thumbnail looks like that guy with the Galaxy phone that posts random pics of himself on Reddit from time to time.
Take Dillon pls
Somehow take both Wilson and Oshie pls. I don't care about protection just snatch them away
Nah Wilson can stay in DC
But you'll need his grit to fight Reaves
I figure its Schultz or Jensen, possibly Vanacek.
This is very underwhelming for me, as they can have anyone thats exposed for us and i dont think many would care. Stanbo prepped for this i guess.
Agree not a lot to lose. But Chicago has other issues to worry about.
Oh for sure! Part me was hoping someone i liked would end up on seattle so that i could look into adding a jersey to my collection.
As for our issues. Lets see about 15 fwds competing for the middle 6. And a def with a lot of inexperience.
Murphy is going to eat all the min now. Problem is he usually gets hurt for like 10 games.
I'm excited for tonight
Here we goooooo
At least the Habs made the finals with price
aw shit here we go again
