Re: From Bountiful to Ponoka

The thing that surprises me is that in the last two games they've allowed an average of 50 shots against per 60 minutes. If they keep that up, I don't see how they can win 3 straight.

Re: 2018-2019 Playoffs - Round 1

I was going to counter that the Islanders are a smaller skilled team, but that roster is HEAVY. Almost nobody under 190 lbs and the majority over 200. I'd say the need to compete with size and play a heavy game hasn't gone away... not yet, anyway.

Re: Canucks Young Guns

...it’s supposed to be a Developmental league but I guess not anymore. ...This isn't about the AHL coach winning the championship that no one really cares about. ...THE GM to the NHL coach to the AHL coach all have to be on same page. While all this makes sense, from the Canucks perspective, is it ...

Re: 2018-2019 Playoffs - Round 1

Vegas, Columbus, Colorado and NYI are all getting to the puck faster and with more intensity. The Pens, Bolts, and Sharks all look(ed) overwhelmed. Calgary may respond tonight, but they looked like they were on their heels in games 2 and 3. So, the question again arises about what kind of skill you ...

Re: Scandal at the 2019 Women's World Championship

Shitty. Finland in OT is a much better story than US in the inevitable shootout. The take I heard on this issue was that it explains why they let Brett Hull's Cup winning "skate in the crease" goal stand. Overturning an OT winner after the team has all jumped on to the ice to celebrate is an unwatch...

Re: 2018-2019 Playoffs - Round 1

Not feeling any love (nor like, really) for Calgary.
Thought I’d give it a try. It’s not happening.

Old habits, I guess.

We need better HVAC in the Leaves thread. There's a fishy smell getting into the adjacent topics.

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

I definitely think they need to change the draft lottery. Said it for years. I like some of Burke's thoughts on it. If you win the lottery you can't pick 1st overall again for 3-5 years. You also can't pick in the top-3 the following season. Only the bottom 10 teams should have a shot at the top-3....

Jersey 2 of the last 3 firsts. Appalling.

Re: 2019 NHL ENTRY DRAFT - Vancouver

I'd love it if they somehow moved into that #2 spot. Kakko looked like a beast in the WJC and if, for some reason he goes #1, you take the best consolation prize in recent history and start brothers era part 2.
