worst play of the year...

This Avs team is sweet, sweet karma for every anti-Canadian dickhead who reveled in the Oilers' years of miserable failure. Hey, look, guess Edmonton doesn't hold the trademark on high-drafting, low-depth run-and-gun teams getting lit up like a Christmas tree. This team was meant to be good and they're worse than the Sabres team that tanked for McEichel. Fail forever while mumbling Sakicforsbergandwah-Sakicforsbergandwah like some magical incantation that makes your team anything but a filthy rich guy's neglected old toy.

I think someone forgot to remind them that McDavid & Eichel were drafted two years ago.

Yeah, that makes the most sense if the AHL is to assume a national footprint. I'd look at Salt Lake City (or West Valley City as the case may be) as a replacement for Stockton, Bakersfield, or The NHL's Best Rec Complex.

 

Why would they have to replace one of those? Vegas is coming in and they'll probably need their own affiliate. SLC would be a good spot for them. 

 

I could see Stockton or Bakersfield moving closer to Alberta eventually, but not for a while. Of the three, San Jose (who play at the Tank btw) should be the first to go. If and when the Oilers or Flames move their affiliate closer to home, I could see the Sharks moving their team to that city (preferably Stockton), or maybe even Fresno or Reno.

Whoa damn the Flames have won seven in a row and can bust the Ducks down to the wild cards. I'll take a Battle of Alberta in the first round, especially in lieu of this boring-ass go-nowhere Ducks team.

The Canucks swept SoCal this weekend, so the Ducks are tied with Calgary at the moment.

Anaheim still has a game in hand, and the Oilers can't seem to hold second place for more than a day or two without booting it back to the Ducks.

 

And I realize full well that I've now jinxed it and the Ducks will win the West when John Gibson finally, as promised, changes the way we ever thought about goaltending instead of merely being a really good goalie like, you know, the last seven or eight Anaheim goalies or whatever it's been.

"Gabriel Landeskog is Toews. MacKinnon is Kane!" they shouted. Yeah and the Blackhawks also were smart enough to surround those guys with other lines of forwards and very good defenseman. They have 37 points in 64 games which is on pace for 47 in the full season. That would easily be the worst record in the shootout era. Worse than teams who were trying to be bad. They won 52 games three years ago.

Blake Comeau was a decent third/fourth line guy on several different playoff teams. Puts on the Avs' Bettman stripes and forgets how to play the sport. This is what guys look like when they're overthinking and have no confidence.

6/10 WHL name. Let's go for at least a 9, like Kolltyn Penn or Cam Saszykerchuk

Duke/Knight is a pretty good name combo though.

We did it. The New York Islanders are in a playoff spot.

 

Now let's hope Toronto keeps losing, and we can turn it around.

I don't know who your "we" is, but I would like to see the kids on the Leafs get some playoff games. 

 

Though that is null and void if my "we" (Lightning) are able to climb all the way back. That is doubtful.

I'm okay with saying "we" when talking about your favorite team. It's faster. 

 

 

The Leafs have won 28 out of 64 games. That's not good. I don't think this will be their year. Next year when they're more experienced and can turn all of those OT losses into wins then I expect them to be in the playoffs.

Granted, a number in the 60's is pretty rare (and ugly-looking, too) for a non offensive lineman athlete to wear, but has there not been a #66 in the league since Lemieux? Even his first go-around?

This "controversy" is beyond stupid. I guess Justin Schultz shouldn't wear #4 for the Penguins since that was Bobby Orr's number.

Sergei Bobrovsky has a shutout in 3 straight starts. The start before that he held Montreal scoreless in regulation before losing in overtime. So he hasn't allowed a goal in regulation in four starts.

Devils now down to 2.18 goals scored per game. Sure am glad that Taylor Hall trade didn't end the world.

Tonight's game in Vancouver felt like a Habs home game. Is this why Tampa Bay banned Canadiens jerseys from their building?
