So, Is the new blueprint to make teams with 4 "second lines"?

If all three Cali teams got swept this spring it wouldn’t hurt my feelings much.

But definitely would be wanting Nashville or Jets to shit on the Vegas parade.

Ya Vegas taking it to SJS. I’d sure be ok with them eliminating the Sharks. But yes, after that I’d be hoping for either Nashville or Winnipeg. But Vegas is a damn good team.

I don’t think they needed to give up what they did to land Tatar, meaning I don’t know if they needed him. But they have a number of FAs this off season so there’s that.

A great story so far. I was tired of expansion teams being a sure two points for teams. Such an advantage to teams in the same division/conference.

Wonder if Kane gets a suspension, a game perhaps.

Vegas' top 4 scorers were all 0.9ppg or better.....hardly 2nd line production.

The names on those lines have been attached to 2nd and 3rd lines at best prior to landing in the desert, but the product on the ice there has been anything but that.

I'm definitely hoping for a Vegas/Winnipeg conference final.

At that point I have to pull for the Jets as the Canadian team, but I wouldn't be heartbroken to see the Knights go to the SCF and win. I think it would be fun just to take in the cinderella spectacle of it all.

Is it me? I don’t think the crosscheck was that bad 5 and the gate seems plenty to me.

And if I’m the coach I’m glad somebody was upset enough to take a major.

From the hi lights it sure looked like a lot of sharks standing around watching

A black eye and a cut on the cheek. Ya, the crosscheck wasn’t that bad. :mrgreen: I don’t think he meant to nit him in the face. Fully believe he meant to go high, shoulder/chest area. But it was a stupid penalty.

Evander Kane to have a phone chat with Department of Player Safety. Kane has never been disciplined by the NHL before and is not known as a dirty player. All of this will work in his favour. He did receive 5 and a game on the play. But it was in the third period of a lost cause. I also don’t think he intended to crosscheck to the face and was remoursfull after the game.

I think he gets one game.

You would be happy if one of your top 6 forwards took a completely un-disciplined and reckless penalty thereby making an embarrassing situation even worse with a 5 minute PK as well as a potential suspension?

I find I’m cheering for Winnipeg. Thought I wanted Nashville to win but it seems not. Baby brother Tanev opens the scoring.

Well I was wrong in that he did have one previous suspension :mrgreen:

1 game is fair to me. It was a needless and reckless play by him. I do believe him that it was an unintentional head shot but still.

Mathews with 2 points.


Matthews declined invite to play for team USA in the up coming WC. You gotta believe he is dealing with an injury. Says he needs to recuperate. Shoulder issues perhaps. He wasn’t the same player in the playoffs.
