  1. Past hour
  2. 'WHL rivals' lol they aren't even in the same conference. The top 7 are probably going to be the top 5 NA skaters and top 2 international skaters, meaning that Cozens will likely be gone by the time Anaheim picks at 9. Which is unfortunate as he was the guy I was hoping we would target when our pick was looking more like the 5-7 range a few months ago.
  3. Today
  4. I agree, we don't have those kind of players currently. We used to, but time has caught up with them. But last night's game was a good illustration, size still matters and speed can only take you so far. The Thorntons, Getzlafs, and Kopitars may be diminishing, but power forwards are still not only viable, but probably are necessary, in the playoffs.
  5. STL pick must be 20 or higher, if not, we have the SJS pick (22-26th, I believe they will lose against VGK).. STL is at the moment 20th. but if one of the lower seeds comes in CF (DAL, COL, VGK, CBJ), the come to 19th and we lost their pick and have the SJS pick. and CBJ is in second round, VGK and COL almost... and its almost VGK-COL.... so we lost the 20th pick... we now should cheer for all who are behind SJS after the regular season....

    playoff game...

    I've been avoiding Western Conference teams like the plague. I was looking up something for the Avs and I couldn't help but notice Vegas has the top 3 scorers (in the playoff thus far) with Stone, Patches, and Statsny. Are they really murdering the Sharks that bad?
  7. Meh. Nonis' career as GM is spotty at best. Not the guy you want to Captain the boat but a solid Lieutenant.
  8. Thanks for that garden gnome comment. Really can't stand that leprechaun.
  9. the more informed than I seem to think that the Blues can end up in a spot lower than 20. Have you worked out the outcomes such that the Blues must be 20 or higher?
  10. I don't think the jackets will go all the way. I simply meant that their next opponent, be it toronto or boston, might have their work cut out for them. You mentioned it'll be important if they can stay healthy. In sweeping the 1st round they didn't play more than they had to. Meanwhile if toronto and boston beat eachother up a bit more I think it's safe to say the jackets will be more healthy and rested (and more rusty of course). Also their PP was clicking. Meanwhile toronto's pk is pretty bad. Whoever makes it out of the 1st round, it'll be an interesting series against the jackets.
  11. Congrats on the Gulls for taking game 1. Must have been a wild one.
  12. Yeah, there's no excuse for Kadri there. That's garbage that I don't want on the Ducks.
  13. To be fair, almost any defense can be rendered helpless against that line. It’s the best line in hockey. They are so skilled, fast and can beat you so many ways. I think that Gaudreau’s biggest problem is that he hasn’t been able to adapt to a playoff hockey when it’s more physical and team’s don’t give him the space and time to control the puck, especially through the neutral zone. I mean, he’s 150 lbs lol. If he gets caught up against the boards, he’s pretty much toast. The Ducks problem is that they have no one close in the same orbit as MacKinnon, Rantanen and Landeskog, let alone three.

    playoff game...

    It didn't even look like it was in his wheelhouse. His release is insane.
  15. After watching tonight's Avalanche - Flames game... is the new NHL really about speed? On the Flames' OT power play, they were really only up half a man at best. Gudreau is good on fast breaks, but not so good setting up in the offensive zone. Speed can't make up for size in the playoffs. Giordano, when he isn't targetting knees, is a defender that should be great against a speed team. But, he was helpless when McKinnon, Rantanen and Landeskog were on the ice, all big, physical skaters. Maybe Ducks' hockey isn't extinct afterall. It needs a new coach and new wrinkles, but I don't think the league has changed to a speed game just yet. p.s. That Cogliano is pretty good isn't he Parros. Much better than you ever were Parros, isn't he?
  16. Mikko Rantanen has such an great release. Colorado is going to be so good for years to come.
  17. I promised myself I wouldn't watch a second of that trash series in Dallas before it started but I saw the score towards the end and figured it was a good time to tune in and see some mustard tears. I watched maybe 2 minutes and the first thing I see is Captain Joke-e slash a Star and place a weak fly-by crosscheck into his lower back before skating away from the scrum he started and towards the refs like he did nothing. Meanwhile his stupid little garden gnome of a defence partner came in to grab the Dallas player's stick so he could toss it to the ice like he's some tough guy. I didn't see who the Dallas player was but he was just shaking his head and laughing in their faces. I have no idea how nobody has even tried putting those two morons in check yet. They're such an embarrassment they can make Doughty look like a saint on ice by comparison. I regret everything.
  18. Why you want StL to win?? if they lose and no team behind them goes to CF, we have their pick at 20th... so CBJ, Dal, Col, VGK must all lose
  19. I said the same thing! 😁
  20. For better or worse, Murray has fielded a team that has gone to the playoffs for several years in a row. Owners have been great. Leaders have done fine with an ever changing lineup due to injuries. Maybe the leaders should have done more to accelerate the coaching change, but Murray wrongly gave his friend the benefit of the doubt and would not fire him until the season was a loss. New players are dominating in the lower leagues. Getting rid of players that don't produce and letting the kids fill in should have us back in the playoffs. Still too small of a market for new stadium. Full reboot will happen in 2 or 3 years when the older guys move on.

    I would love for Anaheim to go after Point. Can't see Cooper getting fired since they just gave him an extension 3 weeks ago.

    playoff game...

    Leafs fans are still crying about this. But we are talking about a kneeing minor versus what probably should have been a match penalty for attempt to injure by crosschecking somebody in the face. That explains why he did it I guess, but it's not really a proportionate response.

    playoff game...

    Rinne gives up 4 goals on 8 shots in 14 minutes. LOL!!!
  24. Rebound goal for Cogliano. Hope they send Nashville home.
