Is there any chance that the Knights may find a 7-game series more difficult? It's one thing to roll up, play a good systems game, maybe out-work the other team and grab the two points; it's a bit different to do that four times to win a series. Personally, I'm hoping they struggle a bit more once teams figure out how to play them.

I'm REALLY hoping.

If they carry out UK's nightmare scenario, I'll join in the puking.
One can only hope that they cannot win four against a contender, but where they sit now I think it’s more than than just catching teams unaware or some kind of Vegas flu. That might have got them a month or two into the season, but first in the West? second overall? In January I’m not happy...

Listening to coiler radio on my drive up to mcmisery last night was pretty funny. They're debating who is to blame and it seems that chiarelli is the goat...the Eberle trade was a huge issue apparently. More than the Hall trade as i guess Larsson at least provides some value to the team as opposed to what Strome is.

I would expect some moves shortly...Maroon surely will be gone and maybe Klefbom...

Just looking at the standings and seeing the knights 2nd overall. I’m gonna puke if they win a Stanley cup in their first year...shit I’ll puke if the make the final even.

2nd overall in January...This shit ain’t right

It's only a little above average when you consider that they paid 500 million to get there.

Does anyone know of a place that tracks man games lost to injury?

Or perhaps a nerd (and I use the term nerd with utmost respect as nerds make the world run!) here tracks that?

Awesome link. I thought we would be higher. A lot of D-men though and not just this year.
Still, the loss of our two main centers has been catastrophic and it has made it almost impossible for us to stay competitive
through 60 minutes.

There's an even better site but it requires a subscription to view current articles and metrics.

It values not only man games lost but the value of the player lost to the team and charts everything.

www.mangameslost.com

You used to be able to look at old articles but I can't even seem to do that anymore.

I'm posting this cause he's one of Bubbles favourite Defenceman in the game - Seabrook, a healthy scratch for tonight's game. I gather Duncan Keith can no longer carry this guy. Such an overrated player

The guy has played a lot of games, and has three cup rings. Looks like time is catching up to him quickly, but I don't imagine anyone lining up to take him off Chicago's hands. 6 years left at $6.875. Yikes.

Seabrook is only 32, he's not Sedin old, but I'm not surprised he's sucking large. A very overrated player given a ridiculous contract. I remember Bubbles saying he wouldn't mind trading for Seabrook not too long ago.

I’d trade Eriksson and Sutter for him

I would trade Eriksson for virtually ANYone or ANYthing.

Swap a shitty contract sure - just so long as I don't have to watch Eriksson any more. The only places I want to see LE is in the press box or on a flight out of YVR.

Correct, he's not Sedin old, but he's played nearly as much. Over 1,000 NHL games and over 24,600 minutes (Sedins are between 23,500-24,600 minutes played).

Remember when he signed the extension? Blackhawks were coming off a SC win and he put up 39 points in year 1 of the deal. While there's no doubt they anticipated his decline over the course of the deal, I don't think they expected Seabrook to go from top-pairing, top-4 to healthy scratch this quickly.

I'm not sure I would swap it for Seabrook. At this point they are both terrible deals. The depressing thing is these were supposed to be the "good" years of the LE deal. Hopefully he can rejuvenate himself, because the "bad" years towards the end of his deal could be real ugly...

I don't know, this is bad. If he did waive, where, I wonder, would he want to come?
Scares the crap outta me.
I hate the Eriksson contract as much as anyone but in all honesty, at this point, I think Edler is a better player than Seabrook.
