  1. sad really because their fans are rabid and the owner is willing to spend. apparently the players didn't get the memo.
  2. US Olympian from the miracle on ice team in 1980 and former nhler Mark Pavelich was found dead in a treatment facility yesterday at the age of 63. Pavelich had the primary assist on the Euruzione goal that won the game for the USA which was one of the most iconic goals of all time. He played a bit in the NHL for the Rangers and North Stars before finishing up his career with the expansion Sharks. Later years have not been kind to him. His wife died young and he sold his Gold Medal for a quarter of a million in 2014. He has battled his demons with mental illness in r
  3. I am in the middle of a tough stretch of opponents, I told Rux today that yours is the team I would consider the favorite or at the least on the short list. Good luck the next couple of days, been a nailbiter so far.
  4. Return of the King. To Calgary. Calgary last night crushed the Senators 7-3 and right after the game they announced on Twitter that they have fired coach Geoff Ward and brought back former head coach Darryl Sutter. Sutter after leaving the Kings popped up in rumors for awhile and kept saying he had done everything he wanted to as a coach in the NHL what with winning a couple of cups with the Kings and all, has kind of fallen off the radar in recent years but is a perfect choice for this team, he brings enough cred to a team that can crush you one night and barely sho
  5. Not trying to take anything away from Vasilevskiy, believe me the man is incredible and will win the Vezina and maybe even the Hart if he continues to dominate the way he is. BUT Watching Tampa games this year most teams if they were to lose their all star sniper would take a step back, instead Tampa simply changed their game plan. They are no longer smashing people nightly 6-3 or some such, instead they smother you on defense and then have that skilled breakout to push the puck out of the zone. They are tied with Toronto at plus 31 although Toronto has played four more
  6. Aaaand another trade pa40 flyers fan receives Pavelski Weber foil receive Doughty Josh Anderson Gudas He wanted faceoffs and scoring, I wanted depth and hits/ a bit of everything. Both got what we wanted.
  7. Fist this Joachim Blichfeld facing a suspension for targetting the head of a superstar. You just cannot do that. and this Superstar Ovechkin to get small fine for targetting the junk of middling forward Trent Frederic. Apparently superstars can do this. Rumor growing legs according to Elliot Friedman among others is that the Canucks have had enough of Jake Virtanen and are ready to move on from the maddeningly inconsistent forward, the Ducks are ready to move on from Danton Heinen who they got from Boston last year and who is not perfor
  8. Nino Niederreitter was fined 5 grand for an elbow to the head of Predator goalie Saros in last nights game. Too much? Not enough? Alex Chiasson went after Jimmy Vesey of the Leafs after the game was over and received a one game suspension for doing so. Truth? I think Chiasson shoulda been fined and if you had said Nino was suspended for a game for the hit to Saros I would have understood that better. Sometimes I do think the player safety committee really does have a wheel they spin to determine punishment. These two, I really think they got them in reverse.
  9. Sid the Kid is currently in Covid protocol which did not slow the Pens last night who gutted out a nice team victory over the Flyers last night. Crosby leads the Pens in scoring but they still put up a five spot without him. Auston Matthews should be back tonight for the league best Leafs against the Oilers who they have dominaed without him. Derek Stepan is out for the year with the Senators who desperately need centers to play with their crazy talented young wingers. Ryan Ellis will be out for a month or more for the fast sinking Preds.
  10. Trade to announce!! DARTH CHILD RECEIVES Mike Smith Timo Meier Ryan McDonough FOIL RECEIVE Mikael Granlund Sam Reinhart Ryan Pullock I have a glut of goaltending and Smith has been lights out but makes me nervous with his injury historyand the defense in front of him. Still, he is the prime add of the deal. Both Meier and McDonough were waiver adds I was streaming but both are servicable. Granlund is a faceoff machine who scoresa bit and qualifies at the wing and center, Reinhart has always since his first day in the leagu
  11. With this shortened season and the mad dash until the deadline this years trade deadline is April 12th, six weeks away. TSN released their first deadline trade bait list today...  (tsn.ca) A couple of thoughts. DeAngelo is on the list good luck getting someone to take this tool off their hands. Ekholm is listed as the plumb of the deadline, I still am not certain the Preds have interest in dealing him. It looks to be a very weak deadline crop with David Savard, a very serviceable but hardly gamebreaking player listed at number 2.
  12. 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
  13. Thing of Beauty goal by Kane last night in the blowout win against the Dead Things. 400 for a career of a player still going strong. The only thing that cracked me up was Nemeth dove across towards Debrincat to cut down the pass, everyone in the Nation knew it was going to be Kaner taking the shot. I think Nemeth just did that to get on television in the highlight shows, lol. Alex Stalock who has been injured and lost his starting job in Minnesota, has been claimed by the Oilers.Solid addition for the Oilers adding depth to a veteratn duo of Smith/Koskinen both of whom spend a fai
  14. I would like it to be Blash but I picked Travis Green out in Vancouver. I listen to way to many podcasts, my God do they hate him out there. The fans are frustrated and expected more this year and I think he is next on the chopping block. Truthfully when I heard a coach was fired I thought for sure it was Green.
  15. With the somewhat surprising firing of Claude Julien last week, I gave it some thought and to me these are the next most likely candidates to be whacked next JEFF BLASHILL Has watched the Wings slip into a funk as by seasons end this will be the worst two year stretch in Wings history. OH!! He is the third longest tenured head coach in the NHL right now. Really. JOHN TORTORELLA There is not a bigger fan of Torts in this forum than me, but he has a shelf life and it looks like he is officially curdled. RALPH KRUGER The team is lackluster to put it mildly. The
