Man, I think there may have been a private memo that went out the league minus Marchand saying dive when he's around you...I mean, the commentator is probably right...they are being very hard on Marchand now 'cause of his past issues...but man...this is ridiculous.

Given the rep calls the Ducks have gotten the past decade-plus, I have little sympathy for Marchand. This was a weak call, sold big time, but he's one of those guys who starts Dehydrated Donkey Dung and never steps up. 

I'd love to see rep calls on the entire Calgary team now that Neal's there. So much rat Dehydrated Donkey Dung.

No sympathy here either. However, I'd prefer they just call these as 2 minute unsportsmanlike conduct penalties. It's not really a slash and to call it one creates more of that "what is or is not a penalty?" confusion that plagues the game. But it was still Marchand trying to poke the goalie in the back of the leg with the blade of his stick for no reason other than to just be a rat. If the league wants to get rat-like behavior out of the game, they need to punish it on the ice, not with a dumb fine a day later.

The Toronto/Columbus game is currently being played in the 3rd period.

Neither team has been called for a penalty.  The referees are letting everything go.  I can't imagine that happening with the ducks.

The go ahead goal by Toronto was : "Hymen won the face-off and "went to the net" (ducks don't do that much) - Reilly (he who scored in overtime against the ducks) shot from the point and it went in off Hymen.  Why?  He went to the net.  What a concept.

Blues have gone 7 periods without scoring a goal...

Yeo's firing can't be far off. And possibly Joel Q's hiring...

I was just looking at the standings... the metro and pacific divisions top three teams are all below the Atlantic and central divisions respectively. What is going on this season? I know things can still change but it's kind of interesting.

Between Anaheim, LA and Vegas it's a race to the bottom of the Pacific this season.

Based on the fact that the ducks can't beat Vegas it seems obvious where things will end up.

There are 8 teams in the league below .500 and 5 of them are from the Pacific division. It's crazy how bad this division is.

Honestly between our current coach, all the injuries and our GM's unwillingness to make any moves, I'm resigned to the fact that Anaheim isn't going to make the playoffs. Might as well tank and try to get a top-3 draft pick.

Gibby is going to be great for this franchise for a long time, but right now it's kinda a shame that he's so good. He's probably the only reason we aren't seeing Anaheim at the bottom of the league standings.

Seems like that is where the team is headed.   The unwillingness to do anything is frustrating...

We have a great goalie tandem right now...and it's unfortunate...it's one year too late. We should trade Miller to a team in need of goalie support and see what we can get back. Although with the way the Pacific has been so far, our mediocre play could still find us in the playoffs and then...well, it's a different season! So...maybe it's better to hold on to Miller till the trade deadline and see where we're at.

Lucic has 2 goals in last 66 games for 7M a year ? I think I could do that.

Make sure you're going around out of position and hitting people and playing dirty. Your job is really to protect McDavid.

The announcer just said that Hitchcock is finally coaching the team that he "dreamed to coach"...  What?

Has there ever been a guy coaching who doesn't look athletic - at all?  He sure doesn't...  Too many pies...
