I might be in the minority here, but I would like to see the Vezina awarded to both Brian Elliott and Jaroslav Halak this season.


It's called the Jennings Trophy.

The Vezina this year is King Henrik, hands down.

Brian Elliott shots faced totals in his nine shutouts:

10/26 at VAN: 32
11/12 vs. TB: 19
11/25 vs. CAL: 24
12/10 vs. SJ: 24
1/7 vs. COL: 15
2/18 vs. MIN: 13
3/22 at LA: 37 (65:00)
3/25 at PHX: 20
3/27: vs. NSH: 24

208 shots in total, or about 23 per shutout.

How many shots on goal do you think constitutes an honest day's work? I'd thought of it as 30, but I guess it's going down leaguewide.
The females in the establishment start admiring Dirty for his assets, which just causes Dirty to return to the situation at hand: his money. He asks for the females' assistance in rectifying the situation, and subsequently asks them to expose their nether regions. Dirty finishes off the song with some nonsensical lyrics, that clearly imply his rising anger for the missing money.

The Blues are a good team in every sense of the word.

It'd be great to see them get some individual recognition (or even a duo) like Halak/Elliott for the Jennings or Petrangelo for the Norris or Backes for the Selke. But it doesn't matter. This team doesn't have any flashy superstars, and it's worked just fine. The playoffs are another beast, and we'll see if the formula holds up.

Yes, I'm aware of the significance of the Jennings Trophy, but I stand by my initial post. One can make a case that St. Louis would be nowhere at the top of the standings without their stout goaltending tandem this year, along with other contributing factors. However, I agree with you that the Vezina should be awarded to Henrik Lundqvist this season.

and Ken Hitchcock made freaking Steve Mason look good. It's almost like his system is designed to prevent goals from being scored or sumpin.


Speaking of Ken Hitchcock, that's so Blue Jacketsy to hire a guy who uses a system illequipped for the post-lockout NHL, and then fire him just as his style of play begins to work again. Fire Howson.



Ken Hitchcock's Blues do not utilize the same system his Stars, Flyers and even Blue Jackets teams. Everyone can keep assuming it's an outdated and now back in trap, but it's not. Watch the games and stop getting caught up in the fact that the Blues don't have a 30-goal scorer and are beating your favorite team, and you'll see it.

Sound defense does NOT mean it's a boring trap. The Blues scored 4-goals last night for pete's sake. The Blues play tight defense which creates chances off of turnovers. And when they have the puck, they play a possession game. That's not a trap.

For what it's worth, I don't care if it were a trap, it's still successful hockey. But it bothers me that every team the Blues beat a team their fans complain about how boring the Blues are. Hitchcock re-invented himself and his style of play, and it's a very smart one.

Canucks beg Canucks fans not to burn things down again, just to be on the safe side.

Same goes with the Pacific out here, which is a hell of a lot more talented imo than the Southeast, and no one is safe there either. Always one really crappy division in each conference.

The Hawks blog I read referred to the Sharks/Stars/Coyotes/Avs/Flames race as a turtle derby. Perfect. I laughed. There's so much mediocre-to-bad in the league this year. You can't call hockey "the greatest sport in the world" when half its playoff field blows goats (I have proof).

Wtf is wrong with all you Chicago fans. You guys have won a cup and 2 series against the Canucks yet you can't seem to stop whinning about them.

Kings and Flames in an important affair tonight.

That should be fun. Especially if the Sharks spit the bit against Anaheim once again.

Kings and Sharks wins would be ideal, but the Sharks are in choke-now mode, and will probably get clowned by Corey Perry, falling to 10th place or however the stupid Western Conference works these days.
The females in the establishment start admiring Dirty for his assets, which just causes Dirty to return to the situation at hand: his money. He asks for the females' assistance in rectifying the situation, and subsequently asks them to expose their nether regions.

You know it's sad when your team has to put together a video to tell the fans not to riot.

1. *whine
2. All I did was post the video. Which was made by your franchise. For their fans. Who whined when they lost. And by "whine," I mean committed arson and various other forms of property damage.
3. I don't care about your franchise. If I was CharlotteShawn85, you wouldn't have said anything, so get over it.

I was reffering to more than just your last post. I was reffering to a large number of Blackhawks fans who can't get enough of talking about the Canucks.

Goodbye, Winnipeg.

Eight back with five to play. Needless to say, it's not happening.
