I did not watch a second of the game because I assumed they'd be outplayed like they normally are in game 1s. I had very little faith in them coming into the Finals. I will likely watch the rest of the way though, as they're making believers out of everyone. What a cool thing...and they earned it, not like Vegas last year.

Asset management in Raptors land. Only one of their starters was drafted by the Raptors (Siakam) and he was a late 2nd rd pick. Van Vleet was undrafted, Norman Powell was a late 2nd rd pick, McCaw was picked up off waivers, etc. Ujiri took gambles via trade, stockpiled assets, and their coaching staff/player development has been off the hook. They deserve to be where they are absolutely.

As for the Sens, no reason they can't follow this model. They have all the assets in the world now to make big moves, lots of cap space, etc. If only they had good player development, a competent GM, and an owner committed to winning. Sigh

they have money, owned by Canada's media monopoly. They'll probably be like the Jays and only spend it when they are good, though.

So what's with all the rumors that the Sens are in negotiations with DevCor and that all decisions have to go through Bettman? I know nothing is official until Bobby Margarita tweets about it, but there's always hope.

How about them Raptors? And how about the fact that Other Sports forum only has topics for soccer and baseball? Tried to add one for the NBA but can't figure it out. Did the forum have to be put "under construction" to add topics?

I heard it too. In fact it's all over reddit. But I won't believe it until I see it. I hope it happens before 01 July so we can attract some free agents this summer.

yeah ive heard nothing in mtl about it.

sometimes i feel like theres a snowball effect from people wanting something so much that tiny rumors started by well wishers take grand proportions. even though i hope something like this could happen. at least sell a majority portion of the team

All it is is a reddit post. Probably nothing. He was apparently right about a helicopter though.

Wow, do I ever not care for these rumours to kick up again. I'll hope they're true, but I'll assume they're BS.

I for one, would welcome back our Swedish overlord back. Mtl.... not so much. Although that might finally shut them up about who’s better, him or PK.

If this could actually happen it would be great. They should also push hard for the pair of Panaren and Bobrovski. Then dump Anderson/buy out whatever.

The only way I see EK65 back in a Sens jersey is with a new owner. Imagine a new owner swooping in this summer and signing EK65 back. It might be a mistake long-term, but man...it'd certainly be a great way to ingratiate yourself to fans! Oh, and he can sign Duchene at the same time. Oh, and Bobrovsky. Cool.

Don't forget about Panerin!! Ahhhhh! Ahhhhh!

Good spot for him

As for EK, I wouldn't bet on it but stranger things have happened. Maybe being away for a year changes things.
