I have a very old friend, literally and figuratively, who's bday is today, I asked him to add on to his bday wish that Rask has a career ending injury, nothing dangerous just enough to keep him out of the pipes. Being a life long Bruins fan he agreed and thought it was a brilliant idea. *crosses fingers*

Also looking forward to the CC league this year, it's my year I can feel it! (oh and are we having 4th place winnings? No no no need I'm taking first this year!)

We'll have to see what Donny S does with the Bruins, I like the idea of the Big Bad Bruins again, seems he loaded up with big hitting 20-25 goal scorers across the board. I was sure they would get rid of Rask when they picked up Martin Jones but they flipped him to the Sharks in under 30 seconds... just ugh.

I switched over to the Tampa-Philly game after the Bruins debacle. I gotta say, 3-on-3 overtime was exciting as can be.
As a side note, I've been futilely hoping for years that the NHL would go to the International-sized rink just so the skill players would have more room to show what they can do. Of course, the owners would never go for it because that's less $$$$ seats in the lower bowl.
What do y'all think? Would you like to see the bigger rink used in the NHL?

"We can't play like this." - Patrick Roy

'Bout sums it up as far as the start of the Season for the Avs.

I really have no idea where to start, they are all over the place, chaotic. Varlamov is saving at about an .820 or something, though granted, he's not getting a lot of help. Bright side, if there is one, they're putting the puck in the net.

GO AVS!

Bruins are in trouble, seems that Donny S was probably asked if he wants to be the GM for a season to try it out, knowing the team has basically nothing and the drafted a lot of mid-level talent that they were pretty sure they would be able to sign. No defense, Rask as your goalie and very little offense. The perfect storm of suck.

I am actually a fan of the Jets. Unfortunately, they are also in the central, so I can't root for them often.

Stars were able to notch another win over another Central team, Minnesota. John Klingberg had the game winning goal and two more assists. I think he could win the Norris this year.

Yeo went off the deep end at practice in Miinesota again, but this time looks like he lost Suter and Parise among others. Save for a quick turnaround, I'd say his time is short.

I'm on Yeo's side on this one. This team needed a come to Jesus meeting. One game they will out skate the other team and play like they are unbeatable. Next game they come out and don't move their feet, can't complete passes that a 12 year old can make and don't play with any urgency. They've been like this for years. If Suter and Parise can't handle it they need to grow a pair.

Not with the crew they have now. They have no offense and really miss saad and sharp..and Bickel Is more clueless then ever

icehog3
12-24-2015, 06:25 PM
Bickell is overpaid for his limited abilities. Anisimov's has as many goals as Saad, Panarin has more points than Sharp. Teravainen and Shaw are starting to score, not to mention Kane leads the league in scoring, Seabrook is 12th in scoring by D, Keith is 20th despite missing a third of the season so far, and on and on.

Dallas can put the puck in the net for sure, but I think their D might be a little overmatched in the playoff atmosphere. Hawks basically played 4 defensemen for the last 3 rounds last season and took home the Cup. But blah, blah, blah, right? :rolleyes:

I'll bet cigars or cash that the Hawks go farther than the Stars in the playoffs.

weedsnager
12-24-2015, 06:44 PM
Yeah if Bickel played with half the emotion that shaw has, he'd be an all star. You can't compare saads goals. Look at who he is playing with now compared to last year.. Kruger has played around 30 games and has 1 frikin point....it's more about goals, you have to factor chemistry also


I would love to take that bet , cause I think Dallas has what it takes this year, but the Hawks are my team, I don't want to root against them

icehog3
12-24-2015, 08:48 PM
Kruger is out for the rest of the season, so he will end with one point. Brings lots of intangibles, but he needed to produce more for sure. Point taken on Bickell as well.

Regarding Saad....and don't get me wrong, I miss him. He scored 23 goals with the Blackhawks in 82 games last year. Anisimov is on pace to better that.

While I'd like to see more from Garbutt and a couple of the Hogs, I like the chemistry. I'll put the Hawks top 4 D against any in the league, and when Hossa is healthy I like their top two lines.

I'd love you to make that bet too, I can always use more cigars. ;)

Well it was nice knowing you Wideman ... wow it certainly looked intentional.

Calgary Flames veteran defenseman Dennis Wideman could be facing NHL discipline after cross-checking a linesman during the team's home game against the Nashville Predators on Wednesday night.

Wideman had just taken a hit from Nashville winger Miikka Salomaki and was skating toward the Flames bench when he leveled linesman Don Henderson from behind, sending him to the ice and against the boards.

Wideman was not penalized for the play, which occurred midway through the second period. The Predators were leading 1-0 at the time. I

It wasn't immediately clear if Wideman intentionally hit the referee or mistook him for another player after the Salomaki hit.

The 32-year-old Wideman is in his fourth season with the Flames. He's second on the team in penalty minutes with 30.

icehog3
01-27-2016, 11:47 PM
I was watching it live, and it looked ridiculously intentional to me, like he got pissed that the linesman was in his way. I was equally unimpressed with his demeanor on the bench afterwards, when it appeared that he said "**** him" to my lip reading skills. I wouldn't be upset with a lengthy suspension, but I am sure he will try to argue it was accidental. I call bullsh!t.

E.J.
01-28-2016, 12:52 AM
Hard to argue that wasn't intentional. I'm not sure what the CBA allows, but violence towards the refs cannot be tolerated. I have to assume he's going to sit for a chunk.

Good for John Scott, captain of the All Star team, scores 2 goals and wins the MVP for the game. The 90K for being on the winning team is no small sum considering his 500k salary and it's good Karma as his wife is expecting twins any day now. So much for the NHL and team's shady handling of the fans voting him in, first they stopped giving vote updates, then he was sent to the AHL, then traded to the Habs and send to their AHL team ... shady business indeed.

The Varlamov civil case went to jury and returned with a victory for him, including him getting what I assume are his legal fees covered($126K). Wonder if that woman even has the ability to pay. I'll try to read a bit about it today if I have some time.

McDavid's goal was sick, and 2 PP assists too. Kid is gonna be a star for a long while.

I am guessing the NHL gave Wideman 20 games because it will (a) appease the refs and (b) give a starting point for the appeal. My guess is he ends up with between 15-17 games off after the appeal. And he deserves every bit of it from my vantage point.

AdamJoshua
02-03-2016, 05:59 PM
I have to say 20 games seems right, Wideman was a favorite when he was on the Bruins, good solid play that gave it his all, don't know what the **** he was thinking when he hit the ref, but I agree he'll get it reduced one or two games but just some token number. 546K in pay gone, I am going to guess he learned a lesson there, oh and he probably shouldn't expect too many calls to go his way when he is able to play again.

#37 currently, or all time, E.J.? If it was all time, that's a joke. I watched a 44 year old man look like a man against boys tonight against Winnipeg, easily the best and hardest working player on the ice. If he hadn;t gone back home for a few seasons, he'd be second all time ahead of Howe and trailing only Gretzky, and actually likely giving that "unbreakable" record a run for the money.

Regarding the Edmonton question, yeah, it must be strange. Looks like Hall has actually stepped up his game, but he can't compete with McDavid. As for as RNH goes, he will be wearing a different sweater by next season.

Where the Hell is Dave Manson?? :D

Lists are subjective, lots of greats on that list. Jagr would definitely be in my top 20 though.

Boy I gotta say, this might be the best outdoor series game I've ever seen. Other than that elbow to the mush of Zucker. That was pretty ugly.

Worst one I've seen, Pete. :lr

Hawks really stunk it up. I don't think Rosival's hit on Zucker was dirty, thought he caught shoulder (no "hit to the head" penalty assessed), and Zucker was just unlucky enough to crack his coconut when he went down. Hope he is OK long ter.

I don't think he meant to hit him high but he definitely got his elbow up over the shoulder. Zucker was half out before his head hit the ice. Don't think it was dirty, just size differential.

Hope he is OK, Pete.

Just watched one of the Avalanche pulling out a tooth on the bench after catching a puck in the mush. Ouch.

Hey Tom - hot of the press - Ladd is headed back to the Blackhawks.
Hope for him you guys make a run of it.....

Most people liked Ladd. I thought him over-rated myself. He is going to be expensive next year anyway, especially if he goes deep into the playoffs - his value will go up. I think Ladd did the best of everybody...

I think we did alright too:

"top pick, top prospect" being touted around town.



Is Marko Dano any good? - I see he was playing with the Hogs - ?development, or does he just not make it in the NHL?

Hawks gave him a chance straight out of camp, Neil, and he didn't stick. And he hasn't been back, so he certainly isn't ready for the Hawks line-up presently. But he is very young, and has a lot of "potential"....maybe he will live up to it in the 'Peg.

Heard Dano will make his Jets' debut tomorrow.

The Jiri Sekac era has ended in Chitown.

Man I loved watching that Avs vs Wings alumni game. The old school highlights had me going and the game ended right! What a great rivalry!!! Hold chit what a ton of players!

Avs lose the Stadium Series game, but win the jersey game. Avs jersey was good lookng, and that Red Wings ensemble was just hideous.

Hawks win the preview of the Stanley Cup Finals this afternoon, 3-2. :wo

Finally got to watch a Bruins game and I should have known better, 13 for 31 at home, wow that's just terrible, I guess Rask can't take the pressure of playing in front of the hometown crowd. TB was 1 for 27 on their recent power plays, they scored 2 on the PP in 40 seconds against Rask, he's good for what ails you!

Alumni game was better ;) I think I heard there was 43,000 in attendance for the game, man Sakic still has a nasty wrist shot :)

I just don't understand the trade for Boedker....:confused:

icehog3
02-29-2016, 11:00 PM
Hejuk a long time guy for the Avs, so I understand it's hard to see him go. Boedker has a lotta upside....scored 2 GW OT goals against the Hawks when they eliminated the Hawks in 2012.

Well we didn't trade Suter unfortunately but we did have the biggest steal of the trade deadline. We got an actual hockey player for Niklas Backstrom. I figured we wouldn't get more than a bucket of pucks for him.

Sure is for both of us. Brodin was supposed to be back for us tonight but for whatever reason he is still on the shelf. Would be much more confident with him back. However keep an eye on our own MN boy Mike Rielly #4 on defense. He's only played around ten games for us but man is this kid a smooth skater. Fun to watch. Hopefully be a good game. What are your thoughts on David Jones EJ? Had a couple nice seasons with your squad.

Funny, the trade that ended Jones' career in Colorado, brought Tanguay back to Colorado...and then both traded again this deadline.

Jones had a couple strong seasons in Colorado, but never was one of my guys. He is what he is at this point, I wouldn't expect much.

Now watch him get like 8 minutes tonight and get the game winner.:gary

Not suiting up tonight. I figure he'll be a fourth line guy.

But yea, He'll of a start for Boedker, point on his 1st shift with the Avs.
