  1. Past hour
  2. Elliott tops league in 5v5 save %

    They were still only middle of the pack at best (80%). For them with the PK it's as much about timing as anything. I don't know what the answer is. Maybe it's Lappy... maybe it's the rookies. It's been significantly better since MacDonald's return (89% since he came back, 100% over the past 4 games). I assume not being able to ice 2 units without playing 2 rookies was a big problem during the Streak.
  3. Karlsson

    From reports Ek is working hard with his sources to drum up "rumors"....... #flyeaglesfly
  4. Today
  5. Not sure how it all shakes out for tomorrow but just saw this.... Alt played pretty well and was very physical around the net. I would love to see Travis add this to his game he has the size he just doesn't use it to lean on guys and separate the from the puck he always uses his stick. I guess there is hope Travis will get feistier in the future...he doesn't have to be Denis Gauthier or anything just be a little harder to play against. Might do him some good to sit and watch. Guess we'll see if it helps/hurts.
  6. The new Leafs-Lucky

    Cherry has been read the riot act for sure (or succumbed to a 'gift' ) . He has become just another puppet of the Big Bettman Hyperbole Machine. Shame on you, Don.
  7. Leafs vs Penguins

    The NHL - No Hitting League. Awful to watch.
  8. @pilldoc Thanks, same to you. This week, more than ever, will likely come down to who's star players perform. LOTS of underperforming going around so far this season. And Auston Matthews can't seem to stay healthy for me lately....
  9. Dec 10/17 @ Edmonton

    The Leafs are still undefeated without Matthews in the lineup.
  10. 2017-18 Manitoba Bisons/U Sports

    I just remembered one more international game: Mar 14, 2014: Ryerson 13, Israel 6 [LINK]
  11. Yesterday = Exhibit A

    So we lose another game badly as far as the score goes. Not as badly regarding how we played as a whole. Jimmy Howard just plain had a dreadful game. It happens. And let’s face it: Rarely does a team whose goalie has a dreadful game win that game. That is pretty much true across the board no matter what team you are talking about with very few exceptions. But even with that, the game is yet another example of the state of our team. We have enough talent where if EVERYONE plays to their potential or close to their best, we can win just about any hockey game, excepting maybe TB and the like. But our trouble is that if any part of our team does NOT play well, we just don’t have enough offense to make up for mistakes, and if we try too hard to make up for it offensively and overcommit, we end up looking just silly. Bad. Reminds me of Herb Brooks’ old saying, “You don’t have enough talent to win on talent alone.” That’s us. The bottom line is that every player who logs any kind of significant ice time has to be giving close to 100% effort on just about every shift if we expect to win games. That kind of expectation is unreasonable. Few teams can do that night in and night out. Most either falter or fall back on a surplus of talent that they can rely on to win the games where they don’t play their best. We do not have that kind of talent or team. I hate to say it, but it is time to sit Kronner and let a kid get some ice time on the blue line. He was the reason for the breakaway goal yesterday, and he has been costing us almost a goal a game. Again, we don’t have the offensive talent to make up for a free giveaway per night.
  12. Still looking for GM's. Winnipeg and Ottawa are open currently. We are about to start our Season One playoffs. The offseason will start soon so that will allow new GMs a time to rebuild. If interested, email me at commish@jafhl.com Also starting a second league, www.pofhl.com Take a look and let me know if you might be interested. This one should be a great league if I can find enough GMs to start it up! Shoot me an email at commish@jafhl.com Thanks again for your interest! Hope to hear from you soon! Brian
  13. Yesterday
  14. Question of the Day

  15. Caught Carter Hart play against Portland last night. He looked really good. The only goal he allowed was on a screened shot that was well placed. He certainly lived up to the billing. Pdx brought it late and he just played his game...oozing confidence and calmness. Made an unbelievable shoulder save in close while on the PK to maintain the lead. Flyers have not had goaltending like that in a long time.
  16. My 2 cents: If this is really about salary clearing, than we aim for draft picks and maybe a Weal type prospect. A goalie prospect is another possibility. We are not at a stage of rebuild at which a "key player" is yet identified. At best, we might have too many D-prospects and need to swap them out for forwards. I love Simmonds' compete level and skills but in some ways he is the wrong man at the wrong place and the wrong time. He is not going to build others' scoring--he feeds on others. It's interesting that so many articles are out there on the net. They aren't about our youth or prospects. That may be a worry. The bottom line--I would not be sad at his departure. I love him but it would probably be a better to fetch what we can now.
  17. Building just like Hexy/Lombo did?

    Not even counting trading away the 1st round pick (that turned out to be John Carlson) for Steve Emminger.
  18. Goalie Interference

    Yes. It should have been waved off i think clear and simple he was interfered with no doubt the amount is arguable but there was interference thankfully they won the game and it didn't matter. Hey wouldn't be the first time the got f**ked this year. Getting use to it.
  19. Tkachuk suspended for spearing-from the bench

    Let me clarify. I was a fan of their dad....haven't seen his kids too much and i certainly don't condone the spearing.
  20. Vikings

    Vikings is still a good show, but it's star power has just been VASTLY downgraded. Killing off Ragnar was the equivalent of eliminating Walter White in Breaking Bad....it is just not working. Ragnar's sons are only interesting to a certain degree, Ivar being the best of the bunch by far. The show is grabbing on to Floki, which is smart, he was easily the 2nd most likable character, and it is now Floki's role to be the tie that binds, the former role of Ragnar.
  21. Tired of the pressure

    See my Tor vs Pit thread for details...
  22. Murray

    Murray returned to practice on Saturday, still no time table for return, but apparently he had no restrictions in practice. [Hidden Content]
  23. Balance

    In the game tonite Connor Brown played 18+ minutes, Nylander 8+ minutes? Brown might be a more appealing defensive player, willing to defend, Nylander defends thru possession. Watching Pitts. control the puck thru most of the last 2 periods I would think TO was in need of player(s) that can move the puck, aid in possession. I feel that Matthews with Brown and Hymen on his wings is now centering TO's new 3rd line?
  24. Last week
  25. NHL Name Drop

    **Bump** Because this is STILL damned funny..............
  26. Baby Wings farm report

    Kid is a tough bugger, played for my Spits for a few years, I'm sure he will bounce back from this, gritty soldier type.
  27. Seattle May Get NHL Team in 2020

    I suppose that would be the easiest route. Since television rules when games are shown now, it seems important to the NHL to keep teams in the same time zones as much as possible within a division. For some reason, I kept thinking Phoenix/Glendale was Pacific Standard time, but they are in fact, Mountain Standard Time....same as the Colorado Avalanche, who are in the Central Division. That would make they Yotes only one hour off the Central time zone and quite doable for TV prime time purposes.
  28. Vegas Golden Knights

    I too am impressed, and of course, the jury is still out whether they can continue to be this good not only for this year but beyond, but sometimes all a player needs is an unconditional opportunity to play everyday and be the best player they can possibly be. Willie Karlsson was just a kid basically on a very defensive minded Columbus team who were/are pushing guys like Alex Wennberg, Cam Atkinson, Zach Werenski, and at the time Ryan Johansson. Karlsson was basically "lost in the shuffle" there.... enter Vegas, a chance to play everyday, gets promoted to top line status, and BAM, we got ourselves another good NHL player at just 24 years old. Malcolm Subban? Stuck behind Tuuka Rask. Barring a trade of Rask or some long term injury (even then, the Bruins went with tried and true back ups), Subban really wasn't going to get an extended look with Boston. Enter Vegas once again, with nothing to lose (and of course, MAF and a myriad of other goalies going down) and Subban has his shot and has run with it. I am glad to see all these guys doing well. I was one of those people who believed Vegas would do well at first, then struggle (that might still happen....loooong season to go still), but with the overall talent available in the NHL today as compared to when the last expansion teams came on board, it really shouldn't be that surprising that relative unknowns are carrying this team to wins. Better than seeing the same ol same ol, "Oh another expansion team....insert 45-50 losses here". This is making the 'Vegas Experiment" look damned good right now...
  29. Frederik Andersen - Toronto's new Cujo!

    Agree WOW. BUT, I think you're a little early with the call. Winning games in the regular season is one thing and winning games in the play-offs are two really different things. The real test for this group is in the future.
