When he played with the Oilers my grandmother could stop more pucks than he did.
He spent a lot of the time foundering around on the ice like a fish that the sea gulls had dragged to shore.

Letang? Lots of recent injuries. Concussed. Big contract with term left. Helluva player a few years ago. Now? Not so sure. Pens need to make a move this season. They are struggling. The Leafs need a d-man but I have no interest in Letang. The price will be too high and he isn't tearing it up this season. Term is the killer for Letang.

The great Johnny Bower passed away today at the ripe old age of 93. Sad day.

A disappointing season for the two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins just took another tough turn. The team announced this afternoon that defensemen Kris Letang and Chad Ruhwedel and forward Bryan Rust have all been placed on injured reserve. There had been indications of possible moves such as these earlier in the day when head coach Mike Sullivan stated that Ruhwedel was “week-to-week” with an upper-body injury and Rust was out long-term with an upper-body injury of his own, as well as confirmed that Letang would remain out of the lineup, but the reality of three starters hitting the shelf on the same day could be jarring for Penguins fans.

USA upset tonight. Trap game? Hope so. Mittlestadt impressing goal to tie but that last goal against the USA was terrible. Hope were ready for Canada tomorrow in the outdoor game.

It's official the Leafs need a d-man. Not a smooth skating one, we have plenty of those. We need a big dude to stand in front of the net and own the area he stands in. Maybe the young Leafs enjoyed the city of Vegas a little too much. Maybe we just got our asses kicked 6-3. Maybe both.

My pet peeve in the NHL is all the icing calls. As fast as the game is these days when a puck is cleared from the other side of the red line seems like defenseman have alligator arms or skate like me and suddenly cant catch up to the puck. The linesman and refs need to not give in. I know the NHL wants goals scored and icing can help create that. But man seems like it's getting really bad.

Hoofed? Where? Are? You? The WJC is going on and I'm not hearing from you. hope you're okay. USA looks like fools gold to me. Record is pretty good but I see cracks and feel we were much better last year. Looking forward to the medal games this week.

Happy New Year to all you hockey lovers. Hoping Stanley comes home in 2018.......

C' mon. Vegas are tire biters.
Anyone who has ever been there is overwhelmed by the city not the team.
Until other NHL teams figure that out, expect more of the same.
But what a wonderful city to go to!

Sooner or later, this thread will turn into a discussion of "who can stop the Lightning"? 17 pages and barely a mention.

NHL Leaders:
Points - 1. Nikita Kucherov
Goals - 1. Nikita Kucherov
Plus/Minus - 1. Anton Stralman
Goals Against Ave - 1. Andrei Vasilevskiy
Save Percentage - 1. Andrei Vasilevskiy
Wins - 1. Andrei Vasilevskiy

In the meantime, it's cute reading about what your teams need.

Those bolts came into Toronto last night and beat us at our own game. Skating. Not many teams can skate with the Leafs. Tampa can and did. They are a very good team. That game last night was as fast a hockey game as I've seen in a long time. Didn't quite have the playoff intensity. Tampa really impressed me. The Leafs played well. Tampa played better. 2-0 final.

Watching the Vegas/Toronto game recently noticed their version of the 50/50 draw was 51/49 draw. The house always wins
