I'm liking this Hab team, good young pieces there.


Agree 1000% but the loss of Emilin will hurt. LOVE to see them beat Boston and remember the series with Cherry coaching B's. Looked better on him than his suits or the dog he plays with in a strange manner.

Ya Emilin will definitely hurt them. I wonder if Tambellini and crew is regretting drafting Yakupov and not Galchenyuk? I know I would. Centre's like that are impossible to get.

Huge mistake by the Coil.
Yakupov=Slava Kozlov
Galchenyuk=Federov

It's really starting to look like that, this Galchenyuk is looking like the real deal. I thought Yak was Ovi jr but he definitely is not all that impressive to me

You're right, but so far Galchenyuk is head and shoulders above Yak right now in maturity and hockey sense and all around ability, it's still early, but I'm always taking a centre over a winger.

I think the Oilers would be a much better team with a one two punch down the middle in RNH and Galchenyuk with Eberle and Hall as a winger for each.

Ownership wanted the Yak, not Tamby or Lowe.

Management wanted Ryan Murray, which is why they invited him to the World Championships last year. They went as far as to tell the Nuge they were going to draft him the night before the draft but ownership chimed in and told them to draft Yak.

Nuge and Murray have the same agent and had dinner the night before thinking they were going to be teammates the next day. This is my insider info. :wink:

A little something I saw that might be of interest to people here. After a 3-1 loss to the Flames, J.S. Giguere of the AV's UNLOADED on his team to reporters.

Its worth a read.

I like how he doesn't take any blame himself on that 3rd goal that Tanguay put up under his arm from a bad angle. You could see the team just sag on that one, same with his reaction to it. JS is overrated, and his success has always come behind a team that is stacked or totally sold out to win by committee. His one amazing year in 2002 was just that, one year.

Dunno Meds.. his stats are about the same as Luongo's .. little better in the playoffs .. a few % pts save percentage points worse in regular season.. ( source NHL command ).. and he's got a Conn Smythe and a Stanley cup ring..salary listed at 1.5 mil.. age 35..

With a newly inked one year extension Mason gives up for in Philly.

Minny loses 1-0 in regulation. We are now 4 points up and even in games played. I would say the division is clearly in our hands to win or lose. Lets see if we can close it out and let some the of the walking wounded rest. Like Bieksa who they would love to rest for a week but just can't.

It's starting to look like maybe Ben Bishop isn't the answer that Tampa Bay was looking for between the pipes.....

6-2 Pittsburgh in the late 3rd period. Bishop has let in some real weak ones.

Maybe goaltending isn't the problem at all, maybe their team defense is just piss poor.....after all, Bishop was very good in Ottawa where the Sens have totally bought in to the defense by committee approach.

FWIW, the Canucks need just 10 points over their final 8 to win the division assuming there aren't too many SOWs.

Not a 100% lock, but 5-3 outta do it. And likely 4-3-1. I don't really see Minny going 8-0, anything is possible.
