  1. Great comeback! You guys should go back and read all the negative comments in this thread! It's comical!

  4. Pegula has owned the Sabres for a decade. They've sucked every year he's owned them. All the guys calling the shots are his hires. They're on 6 coaches and counting, 4 gms. in 10 years. They've picked top 8 in the draft every year for the last 8. The only 2 seasons they were over .500 were the first two he owned them...which was clearly a carry over. If he's a "hockey guy" then I'm an astronaut.

  5. No offense, but you really are taking a page out of @CoachX's NAK dislike here. It's okay, we all have that player. From my POV, it's not substantiated, but again, we all have that player (or players....or coaches, in my case). I think mine is Voracek. V could have a 6 point game and I swear to you I will complain about the stupid pass that sent the puck the other way.

  6. Watching Kap pass is just crazy. He doesn't even look and re-directs pucks almost before they arrive. And, in open ice, his ability to thread passes without staring them down all the way to the opponent's blue line through traffic is beautiful to watch. He has skills that are extremely balanced. He sure isn't a one-dimensional player.

  9. A few notes from last nights games.... Last nights games showed the continued switch towards youth in the NHL, A few highlights included a hat trick by the Ducks Isac Lundestrom (of course in a losing cause) a gut check shutout by Thatcher Demko in what was his best game of the season, it is easy to forget that Elias Pettersson is still only 22 with what he has done so far in his young career but he was a force last night all over the ice. Jordan Jyrou continues to impress in a top six role for the Blues with another goal, with the Senators Tim Stutzle and Josh Norris look like cag

  12. This is one of our best periods. We came back from a stale period and got sloppy goals from pure effort. Those are the goals we have been missing for years, playing catch along the boards. For every great goal, a couple of greasy goals are needed to be a top team. This is a resilient bunch, too

  13. YAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!!! каприсов стреляет он забивает!! This is only a test post. Had this been a real post, Kaprisov would've scored at the 8:17 mark of the 2nd period.

  16. Kap is going to become the best player since Gaborik. In fact, I already think he is in the short sample (First to 10 points, and will likely beat a lot of Wild rookie records). That said, I am guessing the team will have more success than during the Gabby years. There is just something about how he is making everyone better. Only the very few have this across sports. It is early, but there are great signs. Last night, Evason said after the game that 'the coaching staff is not surprised, we could see this in practice.' This says a lot.

  18. Every Flyers player during every interview the past 2 seasons regarding the PP. ”I think we have to get the puck on net more. Need a shooters mentality.”

  23. This was a good win. I thought the bottom would fall out in the first. AV pulled the right strings and the team showed some character.

  24. I know Ekholm isn't the answer in and of himself, but those who think we don't need a defensive upgrade after watching the first 5 minutes of this garbage, is kidding themselves.

  25. I wholeheartedly agree. I have no idea who will go at the expansion, or who we can trade off. I know there'll likely be a lot of "Ooooo shiny" people on JVR if he continues the season he's having, but I'm hoping one of him or Jake gets taken. I think JVR goes back to his old self next season, after he hopes his play gets him a protected slot.

  26. Yep blocker side since he has such a solid glove. So it is something he needs to work on and I am confident he will. The hardest position to play in all of sports maybe only behind QB in the NFL. And unfortunately like QB you get all the glory and all the blame. Right or wrong it is how it is.

  27. I predict they will take this game. Its part of the cycle. Just at the point where we all see the stake hovering over their heart, they pull a rabbitt out of their ass and give us all false hope Its kinda like when Bugs Bunny finally beat that frggin turtle, only to get arrested by an over zealous po-po (prolly a distant coachx ancestor)

  28. Danny Briere and Giroux where very good in the 2010 playoffs. Danny B's performance was the best i have ever witnessed in the playoffs for the Flyers.

  29. I'm not sure why people are so concerned about Hart. He's 22 years old. Typically goalies take a few years to figure the NHL out. Most guys don't get sniff of the NHL till there 23-24. I'm not sure in last nights game which goal he was suppose to stop. Maybe the first goal but he made a good move. It's not just Hart. They had a crazy stat on sports talk radio the other day of the top 15 goalies in the NHL this season how many weren't the starters for their teams. I did take a look at NHL.com and its quite interesting.

  30. The last time Giroux even had a hat trick was April 2018. The only hat trick Jake has ever had was February 2013. Giroux's last hat trick vs a top opponent was vs Pittsburgh in 2012. Let that sink in a minute. Coots is the only star on this team who show up nightly from the forwards.

  31. I would hate them if even if they made me the GM. Then I would trade Crosby to Austrailia

  32. A little philosophy in life which my father taught me: if the same things keep happening, but with different people, you have to ask what the odds are that it's *always* the other guy's fault or if, since you're the common denominator, you are the problem. A multitude of players, coaches and General Managers have come and gone in Pegula's time, with the same poor results. Bad ownership seems to be a problem in Buffalo.

  34. Yep.. it's the proverbial square peg into round hole design. Brad Childress could draw up a better PP than ours. We're sure fun to watch at even strength, though.

  38. It's the bolded where we disagree. I think Sanheim is better than what you're saying, and Eckholm is a 2nd pairing defenseman and has been for quite awhile. He'd be nice to have next Provorov for stability, but he's not a must have. If I'm involving Sanheim or Myers in something, it had better be a "must have." He's good. He's not great. And now he's 30. I'm not trading that kind of package for him, and certainly not the 1st round picks talked about elsewhere.

  39. Agreed. It seems to me it's top heavy and with pieces that don't seem to fit cohesively. Within that, there's top-heavy pieces that aren't performing for various--but alarmingly similar--reasons (Hall & Skinner). And then surrounded by people who are unable to step up either by ability or by affect of the contagion from the non-performing "stars." I don't know how the coach or the GM get out of this, actually. They've steered the organization into a hostage situation in which they have huge contracts with players that know they aren't going anywhere and know

  41. Gaborik was also 23 when he became a point-per-game player (a few more goals, a few less assists). He was able to carry that through his age 27 season, and again at 29. The biggest issue with Gabby, as many will recall was health - or lack thereof. Missed games were a challenge for Gaborik. I am hoping that Kap is more durable (or has better luck). I do see Kap being a 40 goal scorer, once he has 'made enough friends.' Given his arrival as a top player, I would accelerate the other young high ceiling players, such that they are ready as Kap hits his peak. That is how you get trophies.

  42. I hope tonight Fiala can grab LA's attention and relieve some of the focus on Kaprizov. We can't keep letting LA give Kap more dirty shots but I also don't want Foligno in the box for fighting. Rather have his skills on the ice.
