UDL I love the kid. Off the charts impressed. I just can’t get passed the scabby D corps and the fact that the games will ramp up in competition as they go along. A ten or twelve point improvement is fairly significant and if it’s replicated next year maybe they can legitimately contend for a spot in the dance in 19/20. I like the kids playing big roles.

There is no doubt our defense is in the bottom half of the league as it sits.
That is a well known. However, defense men are being made look stupid all over the league because there just aren't as many options to
bust up plays. So much is illegal now. Can't do shit or your in the box, hence, tentative play...

Henrik threatens EP with lawsuit for stealing their play:
“He’s going to have to pay us absolutely. We have the copyright on that play and you can’t just steal like that, that’s wrong.”
Try to focus on 1 year from now...

This year is “1 to 0” years which will expire in the summer.

Strange has been very consistent on acknowledging that this is the year.

I believe Blob may be referring to others and their movement of certain goalposts.
Invincibility lies in oneself.
Vincibility lies in the enemy.

Well, he's always had one year of wiggle room - last year it was focus on 1-2 years from now, so as DC4PM says, it's 0-1 now, or this year or next year.

I think blob's last prediction was we needed another 5 years of rebuilding?

Okay, I’m just going to put this out there. Is anyone else suspecting there is a plot by some covert Swedish organization that assembled a bunch of brilliant but ethically suspect Swedes to somehow master control of Enigma Force to create a tetragametic chimerism of the Sedins. As we all know Enigma Force has been repeatedly used to create different versions of Captain Universe. Doesn’t the nickname “Alien” and “Captain Universe” have a strikingly similar connotation? Pettersson obviously has Sedinery in his blood. He shoots like a young Daniel and passes like a young Hank. Is this just a coincidence?

Daniel never had a shot like that. Starting to wonder if Naslund even had a shot like that. This kid is something else.
Love the Sport. Love the Team.

How old are the Sedins? Nah, couldn't be.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NEW YORK (Nov. 5, 2018) – Calgary Flames center Sean Monahan, Vancouver Canucks center Elias Pettersson and Tampa Bay Lightning center Brayden Point have been named the NHL’s “Three Stars” for the week ending Nov. 4.

FIRST STAR – SEAN MONAHAN, C, CALGARY FLAMES

Monahan registered four straight multi-point performances, leading the NHL with 4-4—8 to propel the Flames (9-5-1, 19 points) to a perfect week and into first place in the Pacific Division. He collected 1-1—2 in a 3-1 victory over the Toronto Maple Leaves Oct. 29, lifting Calgary to its first win in Toronto since Jan. 15, 2011. Monahan then recorded assists on both the tying goal in the final minute of regulation and the overtime winner in a 2-1 triumph against the Buffalo Sabres Oct. 30. He added 1-1—2 in a 6-5 victory over the Colorado Avalanche Nov. 1 before capping the week with two goals – his 15th career multi-goal performance – in a 5-3 win against the Chicago Blackhawks Nov. 3. The 24-year-old Brampton, Ont., native – who ranks second on the Flames with 8-10—18 this season (15 GP) – paces Calgary with 146 goals and sits second on the team with 299 points since making his League debut in 2013-14 (408 GP).

SECOND STAR – ELIAS PETTERSSON, C, VANCOUVER CANUCKS

Pettersson shared the League lead with four goals and ranked third overall with seven points in three games to also power the Canucks (9-6-0, 18 points) to a perfect week. He scored twice, including his first career game-winning goal, in a 5-2 triumph over the Minnesota Wild Oct. 29. After being held off the scoresheet in a 4-2 victory against the Chicago Blackhawks Oct. 31, Pettersson rebounded with five points (3-2—5) – including the tying goal with 35.9 seconds remaining in regulation and the primary assist on the overtime winner – in a 7-6 triumph over the Colorado Avalanche Nov. 2. At 19 years, 355 days, Pettersson became the youngest player in Vancouver history to record a five-point game as well as the first rookie in franchise history to achieve the feat. The Sundsvall, Sweden, native – who tops all rookies in goals and points this season (9-6—15 in 9 GP) – is one of just 16 players in NHL history with at least nine goals through his first nine career games.

THIRD STAR – BRAYDEN POINT, C, TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING

Point led the NHL with six assists and ranked second overall with eight points to lift the Lightning (10-3-1, 21 points) to three wins in four contests and into first place in the Atlantic Division. He collected 1-4—5 in an 8-3 victory against the New Jersey Devils Oct. 30. At 22 years, 231 days, Point became the youngest player in Tampa Bay history to record a five-point game. After being held off the scoresheet in a 4-1 loss to the Nashville Predators Nov. 1, Point bounced back with one assist in 4-1 triumph over the Montreal Canadiens Nov. 3. He closed the week by scoring the tying goal with 26.4 seconds remaining in regulation and then assisting on the overtime winner in a 4-3 victory against the Ottawa Senators Nov. 4. The Calgary native paces the Lightning with eight goals and 17 points through 14 games this season.
