  1. Today
  2. You have got to be kidding...
  3. So we should hope for a sharks loss more than the blues, if I understand correctly.
  4. All the division winners lost in the first round so it's Tampa 27th, Calgary 26th, Washington 25th and Nashville 24th. Boston (107pts) 23rd, NYI (103pts) 22nd are both ahead of the Sharks in points so if they all lose this round, the Sharks pick would be #21..LOL I keep on forgetting about Dallas messing up the order. Knowing our luck, the Sharks and Blues go to the WCF. I'm kind of pulling for the Blues and the BJ's for the SCF.
  5. I wanted all 3 Canadian teams to win the first 2 rounds and the Leafs to win the Cup. Calgary and Winnipeg would have helped the Ducks get pick #20 in the first round from Buffalo, and a Leafs Cup win would have made the Kings first rounder for Muzzin pick #31. As for #45, he isn’t my favorite, but a massive improvement over #44.
  6. I think Dallas beating Nashville messes that up. Now one of either STL or DAL will go to the WCF, meaning STL either drops to <20 or jumps to 27+ with a win or loss against Dallas.
  7. Really hoping we can get the best possible pick in the lower 20 range. But there is a possibility for both to go to the conf finals. If the blues lose this round there is a good chance it could be 20 th then? Or do the jackets and Colorado mess that up?

    i sort of wondered if there could have been a roughing minor called on the player Pavelski levered over as he hit the ice. it would have been weird, but perhaps more correct to give one player 2 min for cross checking, and other other player 2 min for roughing, ending up in a 5 on 3 for a full 2 minutes (or at least until the first goal was scored). anyway, i can't figure out how Vegas couldn't stop the bleeding. weird, undisciplined play. teams have to play through poor ref calls - for better or worse, they're part of the game, and they tend to even out over time (except for the Ducks, who probably wouldn't win a single game if they didn't learn how to play through ref adversity).

    I was going to say the same thing. Two old guys taking the hit so the young guys can go on and get experience.
  10. A shiny new barstool perhaps?
  11. 28th or 29th. We really want the Sharks, Islanders and Bruins to lose this round. That bumps the Sharks pick up a few spots. If the Blues, Avs and BJ's lose this round, I think that bumps the Blues pick to 20th.
  12. Yesterday
  13. I don’t remember the source, but it was in a publicly available article on the internet. Might have been one of those where Jonathan M. was quoted as saying the refs stole the game from the Knights. Edit: It’s in Fowl’s link to the “scouting the refs” article above. Sorry for the triple post. Don’t know how to get rid of the first 2.

  16. Second Round Predictions: West: San Jose vs. Colorado: Sharks in 5. St Louis vs. Dallas: Blues in 5 East : Boston vs. Columbus: Columbus in 6 New York vs. Carolina: Isles in 7.

    And allow them to challenge goalie interference even when a penalty is called. A BS penalty shouldn't negate a valid coach's challenge on a goal overturned for interference.
  18. #9. GMBM will then trade the SJ/STL pick with Nick Ritchie for something better....
  19. Sure, but if you were then approached by the league and asked what led you to that call, would you throw your linesman under the bus? I haven't reffed in hockey, but I've umpired plenty in baseball, and if I made a call based on what my base umpire saw, I would own that call and take responsibility for it. All I'm saying is that it's conceivable that the referees from that game were given the boot because of their mismanagement of the situation, while the linesmen were allowed to continue.
  20. I guess anyone who predicted Lightning Vs Penguins and Preds Vs Golden Knights in the Conference Finals, is scratching their heads right now.
  21. So if both the sharks and the blues go to the conference finals what would our pick be?
  22. You gotta predict the one that's going to be the least likely. That's how these playoffs are going.

    Me too....and I feel that creating a whole new situation for a video review because of something that (as far as I know) has happened ONCE and (sort of) dictated the outcome of the game (the Knights are at complete fault for allowing 4 goals in 4 minutes...) is the wrong reason to allow ANOTHER video review. I agree the off-side one needs to go, too. I don't care if the player's skate is a millimeter off the surface of the ice. The off-side video review, again, is a review that was put in place to stop another thing that rarely EVER happened...a player obviously being offsides and then scoring a goal. We need to stop making brand new rules to help prevent a thing that has already only happened once or twice...
  24. My biggest issue isn't even the call. Vegas has no one to blame but themselves for golfing this early. They completely collapsed. Up 3-0 and they let in four? Blame the pk and not the refs. I find it hard to believe the refs handed them four goals to help them win. Vegas shouldn't get any apology imo. It's a bad call but shouldn't be the end of the world. Also, if the refs are getting blamed for this and aren't being let into the next round, shouldn't they also be blaming Vegas for that? Someone mentioned that it happened twice before. Vegas got destroyed and couldn't keep composure. This should be the end of the discussion. Refs suck yeah yeah, but Vegas was worse.

    I'm getting a bit sick of all the added video reviews in hockey but I would be fine with this as long as they get rid of offside reviews. Keep coaches challenge goalie interference reviews. Get rid of offside reviews. Add reviews for all major penalties (i.e. not a coaches challenge). Have Toronto look at it for 30 seconds (i.e. before the play starts again). If they can't make a decision in that 30 seconds that the refs were mistaken then play on.
