Little sid is gonna get lit up the moment he steps back on the ice. Especially if its in the palyoffs.
Who got suspended for hitting him with the puck in the mouth? I know it was one of his own guys, but i am sure the league suspended him for it. I mean its sidney crosby for crying out loud.

No doubt. I don't know how often you watch pens games, but everyone lets up near Crosby.

I think I've mentioned before there has to be some "recommendation" letter sent out by the league implying that no one had better touch the golden boy.

Of course, only the Flyers disobey because that's naturally what they do. They have a "**** you NHL, you need us more than we need you" attitude and I respect them for it lol.

The league isn't stupid, they know the flyers are a cash cow for the league.

Kings made some low-key moves.

Acquired Robyn Regehr from Buffalo for 2 2nd round picks in 2014 and 2015.

Traded away Drewiske to Montreal for a 5th round pick in 2013.

I like both moves for both teams.

Regehr will do well in LA. In buffalo, they play a cluster**** system with no defense. That's why Miller gets pelted.

I have seen Drewiske play a few times. I like his game and I think Montreal did well in this trade. LA won't miss a beat as they are deep on D, but I think Drewiske has some good potential

wow, McPhee is a dumb ass. you trade a player you got as a gift because Sherman was too stupid to lotto protect the pick and then you flip him for Erat? so you traded Varlamov for Erat?

wow, just wow.

i did like that the Avs got some 2014 value out of O'Byrne. finally got rid of some dead weight and opens up a spot for both Barrie and Elliot to play full time at the NHL level.

I hate McPhee. I hate McPhee. I hate McPhee.

Forsberg was the most valuable item traded at the deadline by any team and Erat wasn't close to the best return.

God, they'll win the weak SE and we'll get another year of him at least.

I think they were going to win the SE regardless. Winnipeg has looked like crap in every semi-big game lately and Carolina doesn't look good either. Washington is already playing at a high level recently...they may get some help from this but I wouldn't have sacrificed Forsberg. They will get the 3 seed either way.

It reeks of desperation, but I think his job was safe anyway. The way they're playing now, they'll make the playoffs and Ted will be happy for the playoff revenue.

McPhee can't build a team to go to the next level, but Ted doesn't seem to care as long as they make the playoffs.

Erat for Forsberg was pretty bad, although Erat is underrated.

Clowe went HAM tonight. I wanted him on the Flyers but I would have gave a 2nd and 3rd.

Really happy for CBJ as they get Gaborik. I hope they turn it around, their new GM is a draft genius.

Happy for Minny too, They get Pommer but overpaid. They only should have gave one of Larsson/1st. Pommer is severely underrated. If Flyers miss playoffs I'm rooting for them.

Must suck to be a Dallas fan, your in the playoff hunt and trade away Jagr, Morrow, and Roy. I do like the returns but when do you actually go for it?

I'd hate to be a Wings fan too. I hope Datsyuk leaves for Russia next year. They don't deserve him.

Don't know what to think about Bishop for Conacher trade.... That one shocked me. I think Conacher is a 55 pt player tops and I have no clue about Bishop. It seems like every goalie the Sens have does good which is the opposite of any Philly goalie.

Oh ya the Flyers get Chris Mason errr Steve... Whatever woohoo..

That's the only justification really. I think he was basically told "make the playoffs or you are gone"

I'm not opposed to trading Forsberg but for Erat?! All those years, they refused to give a Carlson, Johansson, Alzner or Varlamov for someone like Pronger but yet they give up Forsberg for Erat? It's a joke.

Putting all the bits and pieces I have heard together; this is totally ownership intervening. Mcphee would not pull this kind of deal without pressure.

This is Ted with "get me in the playoffs" pressure. Leonsis is the real moron in all of this. Anyways it's Dick Patrick who has veto power/no go on the deals. Dick Patrick is the clown that vetoed a caps trade for Iginla a couple of years back.

With the Nationals taking over the town and RGIII right around the corner in a Redskins first town, Leonsis is feeling the heat. He should have been ALL IN when he had the teams to do it in 2008-2011

Wouldn't be surprised to see the flyers dump bryz and trade with LA for Bernier at the draft. A mason/Bernier tandem would be much cheaper and better for the flyers.

That would have been worse. Tom Wilson is pretty much untouchable. The caps need more players like him; a legit SCORING top 6 power forward.

He almost made the team out of training camp.

My guess is Mcphee tried to unload Kuznetsov but Nashville wouldn't have any of it due to their experience with Radulov and now the half assing Kost-it-syn.

Nashville is done with russian players IMO

edit: the only hope from caps perspective is that Erat was a pretty consistent ~50 pt player in offensively challenged Nashville. Maybe that equates to 70-80 pts in a more O-ffensive system

edit: btw, I think I read during the draft that the flyers were waiting to draft Wilson but the caps snatched him up right before. Makes sense, Wilson is the prototypical Flyers type player

Supposedly the Flyers offer for Bishop was Rinaldo + a 2nd.... And that if they got Bishop they would probably buy out Bryzgalov. I'm not sure about that last part. I love Rinaldo, he's one of the best agitators in the game, kind of glad the trade didn't happen but it would have been crazy if they did get Bishop!

I sure hope so, I started getting skeptical of him coming over after his comments last year.

I know he has to cater to the Russian media and if you read about it, seems like Russian Hockey Federation is holding him hostage "You stay here or no Sochi Olympics for you"

I'm really not sure; I guess we will find out after the olympics. Also, the KHL is nothing like the NHL and I hope he's ready for the smaller ice surface and more aggressive play.

I still think Bryz is probably gone after the season.

There's no way they spend 9 million in net. Hopefully Mason gets a 10 game tryout.

The Red Wings are rebuilding, it is a testament to the coaching of Babcock that they can remain in contention even while doing it. Not getting Suter in the summer triggered a rebuild.

No reason to throw away picks in a strong draft or prospects to get rental players for a playoff run that doesn't matter. It is not like the team has to make the playoffs because they are finally in the hunt.

keep your damn hands off Jones! he belongs to the Avs!

It makes so much sene that Seth Jones would play for the Avs. This is possibly the Avs worst season ever, and they could very well have the 1st overall pick in the draft. He grew up in Denver and was mentored by Joe Sakic.

He probably doesn't have an opinion, but you have to think in the back of his mind, Jones wants to play for the Avs.

I guarantee the Avs will grab him if they get a chance.

Jones,EJ,Barrie,Elliot,Hejda,Siemens,Hunwick would go a long way towards fixing the issues on D.

plus with Joey Hison back on the ice we have another dynamic C in the pipeline where we can potentially move Stastny in a year or two.

I hope they don't embarrass themselves if they get in. EVERYONE will be disrespecting the "3 seed."

The east has so much parity, that all you have to do is get in and you never know. The game tonight should have never got to OT, way too conservative in the 3rd sitting back on the lead.

I do get the feeling that if they do get in, they will do some damage with everyone disrespecting the SE division "winner"

Same with Jagr. First game with the B's and he scores the only goal of the game. I'll take it! Both goalies were just insane last night.

Should be getting a few guys back healthy in the next week or so for the stretch run. Hopefully Bergeron is among them. We really need him healthy for the playoffs.

They had an interesting stat in the B's game last night with regard to the shortened season/crammed schedule and injuries. B's have only had 5 guys play in every game. They didn't show every team, but I'd be curious to see what the average is right now.

It's been pretty bad league wide. I guess this shortened season is a great counter argument to the people that say "82 games is too many."

162 might be a lot for baseball but in hockey, it's pretty clear guys drop like flies when playing this much hockey in such a short time.

Most teams have missed on average 5 or so guys all the time. A lot of guys are out across the league

Washington will be the 3 seed for sure. They are playing hotter than anyone right now.

That, and the entire SE rolled over and died.

Canes went from being the 6th best team in the NHL (W/L'wise) to losing 11 of 10, and making a serious case for a top 5 pick in the draft. We've had our injuries like everyone else, but all of the sudden this team lost its fight. Maybe Cam Ward is more of a leader than I thought, or maybe Staal isn't one, whatever it is that's ailing this team is really killing my Hockey buzz. I'm even starting to worry that its Kurk Muller.

Winnipeg has a soft schedule for the remainder of the season, but they are solely dependent on Pavelec. If he's cold so go the Jets, if hes hot so go the Jets; this might help them fight for the 8 seed, but its not going to propel them against a surging Caps team.

The Lighting are their own worst enemy every time they take the ice. They are 6 points back, but still a dangerous group. It will be interesting to see if they can string something together, I think they missed their opportunity though.


The Caps are looking like the team everyone was expecting to own the SE this season, it just took them 30 games to get it together. It shouldn't be a surprise to anyone that they are where they are right now.

They should now, but WPG has an easy schedule. It's actually a little easier than the caps who still have 2 @MTL, vs. OTT, vs, BOS on the schedule. Still no excuse given that they have 6 of last 9 at home and 1 game in hand on Winnipeg.

The team that I think is most dangerous right now? The rangers. I am honestly still shaking my head that Columbus sent that package for the soft Gaborik. They just helped out the Rangers immensely.

Looks like I may have been right on NJ and Philly missing this year. It will be tough for either of those 2 to catch NYI or NYR and I think Ottawa had a big enough cushion where they will hold on.

I think these are the 8, the only potential change I could see is 3 seed if the caps get nonchalant again...

I am honestly baffled with the canes. I thought they were constructed much better than the caps but the caps seem to have done well to build their D on the fly and the D unit is playing solid hockey.

I guess I underestimated Ward a little as well. I never thought the Carolina D was going to be THAT bad. I mean Corvo had some embarrassing play recently that I saw where the guy skated around him and scored. Forgot which game exactly. He sucks but still Gleason and Pitkanen are good players

but yeah, I thought the canes D could do just enough for them to win the SE. I guess that's why they still play the season.

They should now, but WPG has an easy schedule. It's actually a little easier than the caps who still have 2 @MTL, vs. OTT, vs, BOS on the schedule. Still no excuse given that they have 6 of last 9 at home and 1 game in hand on Winnipeg.

The team that I think is most dangerous right now? The rangers. I am honestly still shaking my head that Columbus sent that package for the soft Gaborik. They just helped out the Rangers immensely.

Looks like I may have been right on NJ and Philly missing this year. It will be tough for either of those 2 to catch NYI or NYR and I think Ottawa had a big enough cushion where they will hold on.

I think these are the 8, the only potential change I could see is 3 seed if the caps get nonchalant again...

wait, wait, wait.....didn't you previously call them overrated? This team is going to be tougher once they get their second best player (Staal) back in the line up.

Yep they were overrated but I liked their additions during the deadline.

Clowe is a great addition in the sense that they really missed Prust and so he can help fill that void. I also liked their move to trade Gaborik for Dorsett, Moore and Brassard. Tortorella hates Gaborik so it's not like Gaborik was really part of that team.

I just think those were pretty good moves by them and kind of changes their team. They will be tough IMO.

We will see though, nothing is guaranteed.

I do think the one SE team that the 6 seed (probably Toronto) doesn't want to see make it is the Caps. Any 6 seed is going to be rooting hard/hoping for Winnipeg who doesn't have the type of firepower the caps have.

I am honestly baffled with the canes. I thought they were constructed much better than the caps but the caps seem to have done well to build their D on the fly and the D unit is playing solid hockey.

I guess I underestimated Ward a little as well. I never thought the Carolina D was going to be THAT bad. I mean Corvo had some embarrassing play recently that I saw where the guy skated around him and scored. Forgot which game exactly. He sucks but still Gleason and Pitkanen are good players

but yeah, I thought the canes D could do just enough for them to win the SE. I guess that's why they still play the season.

Our only hopes defensively are Cam Ward and Judtin Faulk. We've played 7 some odd games without both, and averaged 4 goals against in that stretch. I know everybody is losing players this season, but Carolina is unique in that its a budget franchise that avoids the cap for small market surviveability. Sadly JR has invest heavely in 5 players (probably to keep them in town), and neglected to address some obvious depth issues in the roster. Well, that and they hate developing young ayers for some reason. They get a guy like Bhret Bellmore to come in and play lights out for six games, and then they reassign him instead of putting a scrub like Corvo or McBain on waivers. It's also one of those seasons where weird **** happens frequently. We aren't getting the breaks, we have back to back games with an own goal, and days after our starting Goaltender goes down our backup slices the inside of his leg open with his own skate.

I'm frustrated...

Good luck to your caps the rest if the way.

Clowe and Prust are 2 totally different players. Dorsett compares more to Prust than Clowe. Clowe can score.

Tortorella did not hate Gaborik, it's Gaborik's play that caused the tension. Gaborik had become lazy in his back check and stopped moving his feet.

I agree it changed the culture but having Richards actually play well and the addition of MZA are the biggest factors.

I'd rather face the Caps then the Jets. The Jets have more depth and are bigger.

Sorry; I thought it was a given that dorsett is similar to prust. You get my point about the rangers.

Gaborik; that's right. Still main point is torts didnt like him for the reasons you mentioned.

I get what you are saying about wpg, but I think most teams would still like to avoid the caps offensive skill; especially if the PP operates at #1 level.

If they get Seth Jones though, this 48 game nightmare will be worth it. Better than having to deal with this over 82 games.

I'm high on Muller so I'm surprised he hasn't turned it around. I would have expected him to play a conservative game though with the injuries and Ward being out but it seems that hasn't been the case and so they are giving up a lot of goals.

ouch, very telling about the state of the Avs. You have to start at the top with Kroenke, since he's bought the team the Avs have done nothing. Next you have to look at Pierre Lacroix and ask yourself what has happened to this guy? He was a fantastic GM but now he's a lousy President. Then look at Sacco and ask why does he still have a job? Usually the HC is to first to go after the team has been called out by the players for not giving a crap.

I think Kroenke is so wrapped up in the Nugz he could care less about the Avs. As long as the team is making $ I bet Kroenke could give a crap.

Well their bottom line has to be getting effected. I read attendance is now 26th out of 30 and they're the only team in the league who's TV ratings have declined from last year. I'd assume that merchandise sales are down too.

what happened is that Lacroix was a top of the salary heap GM. that's where he thrived. he sign key FA's, make trades for big time guys and generally build through FA and trade.

he was never a real team builder type and his line of thinking did not change with the NHL rules. the Avs haven't really built from the ground up since Quebec. the real issue however is that he keeps hiring people who were formerly associated with the Avs either as a player, coach or front office guy.
he believes there is a "Avs way" of doing things.
this notion significantly shrinks the candidate pool and causes the issues we have today.

ever since Sherman and Pracey have taken over the day to day and drafting respectively the team has improved. but coming back from Gigure's reign as GM is no easy task.
however it's made far more arduous when you refuse to hire the best people who will cultivate and develop a winning mentality and culture and instead hire the people you like as former Avs lackeys.

Lacroix needs to go, Sherman is a solid GM but with Kroenke unwilling to spend on the Avs and Lacroix being shadow GM it's tough to improve.

Joe mother****ing Sacco... he shouldn't be an assistant coach much less a head coach in the NHL. he is about the dumbest SOB in the history of the game. he coaches a style of play that doesn't fit any of his players and continues to trot out ****ty defensive guys who play like rookies instead of playing Barrie,Elliot and EJ more. EJ is our best defenseman and he's barely top 3 in ice time for defensemen on our team.

How can he be undeserving of the 2nd two? Art Ross is for leader in total points. It's a very black and white award. Either you're out there scoring points for your team every night (Ovy) or you're always injured (Sidney). It's not like it's some judgment call.

And in terms of the Hart.....what is Pittsburgh's record and winning percentage without Sidney? Probably about the same as it is right now. They are doing just fine without him. Washington on the other hand is a bottom feeder without Ovechkin playing out of his mind. For me, that makes the Hart decision easy. Washington needs Ovy more than Pittsburgh needs Sidney.

Hmm a lot of logic in this post.

Come on SoCalBronco, don't let your homerism make you look like a petty child. Everytime you b**** about Crosby, you sound like that.

Look, he's injury prone and he isn't nearly as important to Pittsburgh as you think he is, given how stacked the roster is. Give Ovechkin his credit, whether you like it or not, the guy is a top player in this league.

No one said Crosby wasn't a great player, but you need to give Ovechkin and Stamkos their due.

You can make endless arguments about how much Crosby profits from secondary assists and phantom assists. Don't become like the Canadian media dude. With Ovechkin and Stamkos, it's clearly in front of us, they put the puck in the net at a higher level than anyone else; can't question that.

Unless of course, you get 400 PPs which we know the pens will get. Then again, maybe playing the NY market team will neutralize that annual spring advantage the pens get.

edit: all my pens fans friends are hoping Winnipeg catches the Rangers. You can throw out everything out the window with Atlantic Division matchups, but if you want the rangers instead of the Jets, good luck with that.

Are the Broncos scared of the Browns in an AFCCG?

I disagree with your argument. Sidney's play...much if it without Geno in the lineup was the main reason they won 15 in a row. Dude was averaging more than 2 ppg for a big stretch. Only reason they are winning now is Iggy and Morrow were added to the lineup....even now they are not winning impressively...they are playing like crap....and not surprisingly Kunitz has fallen off the face of the earth since Sid went out. What does that tell you?

There is really no way anyone can claim Ovy is more deserving. Dude played like crap for half the year. So because he plays great for the other half and his team has like 5th most points in the East...is somehow better than the guy who was great the whole time and our team is in first?

Seems legit.

I'm not going to get in an endless argument. The 2 points that are glaringly obvious are:

1) whenever crosby is out, the pens don't suffer. Don't they have a better record without him?

2) Ovechkin was playing with grinders and an MIA backstrom for a chunk of the year. If you watched any of their games, you would have seen Beagle and Crabb whiff on multiple ovie prime passes and ovie getting triple teamed. Notice how now either he is more open and having legitimate top 6 guys with him opens up the game.

You can't have it both ways. Early on, you were complaining (with many media types) how crosby had crap wingers in Kunitz and Dupuis. Now suddenly, it's look how awesome crosby is. Which is it? Can't be both.

Stamkos, Ovechkin and Crosby are all great players in their own right but it is what it is. They all dominate games. It's not anyone's fault that Crosby is always injured. I told you he was injury prone, the pattern has always been there throughout his career. It's part of the game.

Anyways, this is a waste of energy. I'll let you vent. We will see what happens in the playoffs.

Pens have 10 losses. Sid was on the ice for 8 of them. They win more without him on the ice. By definition, a team cannot have a better record without their MVP on the ice than they do with him on the ice. They do.

There is really no way anyone can claim Ovy is more deserving.

Everyone outside Pittsburgh, including me, disagrees. I have no horse in this race. I actually hate Ovy and am biased against him. What does that tell you?

A guy who is actually playing and helping his team win games is better. Crosby can't stay healthy. Period. Call me when he is averaging 2 pts per game and actually plays a full season. Then we can talk.

Bean town.....I strongly disagree with just about everything you posted. You are a good guy so I'm not going to get into it with you. I just respectfully very strongly disagree. The idea that Crosby can be far and away the vest player...for 3/4 of the season and end up getting nothing at all to show for it is something that I'm unwilling to accept. The idea that that's life isn't an answer that works. It simply isn't a satisfactory response.

Now I see St Louis got 2 points tonight and Stamkos 1 so St Louis is now 1 back.

I suppose out of the various contenders St Louis would be the least of multiple evils if he "won" the AR. It wouldn't be legit but unlike the other three I don't hate him. Would be a nice career capper for him.

Agreed. I would say that Ovy and Stamkos are more valuable to their teams than Crosby is, and I like Stamkos more out of anyone in the NHL...he's lighting it up at such a young age.


I believe SoCal is emotionally charged with this one because he saw the same thing happen to Mario when he was going up against Gretz. Mario's career was marred by injuries and retirement. So I think that Crosby missing a bunch of games the last few years has SoCal pissed to the point he is justifying the fact that the awards shouldn't be based on the whole season.

He saw Mario miss out on some awards and scoring titles, and now he's gonna see it again. Can't have that...

FYI, I don't know if you ever heard of this or if it ever got out in pittsburgh, but apparently Orpik and Crosby, let's just say aren't too fond of each other. I heard from a friend who is boys with a pens player.

So I guess Sid will be playing on Thursday which gives him 2 games. I suspect he needs 4 points (at least). I think we got NJ and CAR.

1. Bylsma don't be an idiot. I don't care about Kunitz or Dupuis feelings. Sid needs to play full time with Geno and Iggy on the wings.
2. Sid needs to play all 2 min of each PP.
3. No need for defense as these are meaningless games....just stay out on the blue line waiting for a breakout pass Sid.
4. Gary....we are the golden boys of the league right? So please tell your officials to make sure we get at least 5 PP each of these games preferably at least 2 majors.
5. Getting Peters for one of these games is great. To make sure he is even more awful than he is....send some of pittsburghs finest up to his room the night before to wear him down. Dudes save percentage against us better not be above .700.

We need to win this thing for Sid.....by hook or by crook I really dooooooont caaaaare.

I don't know, to me it seems like he has been out pretty long for a broken jaw. I don't know if they are not telling the truth but this is a long time for a broken jaw.

As I said earlier in this thread, if a broken jaw caused another concussion; he should consider hanging them up. It's not worth it to ruin his well being...

Good points. I think this one will go 6 or 7, either way.

West match ups are set. I think Chicago will win in 5. The Ducks will fend off Detroit in 6 tough games. Vancouver and SJ too close to call. I think STL and LA will be a terrific series. LA has played well against them but STL is a team that is deep defensively and I wouldn't be shocked if they were in the Final.


As for the East we will see tomorrow if we get the Isles or Ottawa. I think we would trash NYI defense. Just trash it. But they would exploit our PK...early and often. Ottawa getting Karlsson back is big and Anderson could steal games but I don't think they can generate enough goals. We should beat either club in 5 or 6 games.

Maybe not this year but I'm guessing next summer they will buy him out. Personally I'd do it this year and reclaim his cap space now and shore up the D. If Mason plays at a level remotely close to what he's doing now, he'll get 3-4 million for his next contract and there's no way you carry 10 million in cap space between the two of them.

Bryz and his contract are both just brutal.


Oliver has been real good. He could be in top 4 next year if he cleans his game as you said and quits taking awful penalties.

:angel:Now time for me to rant ;)

In all seriousness; I'm so sick of seeing the rangers. I think the series is a coin flip to be honest but 4 times in 5 years. Sick of seeing them.

My 3 keys for caps:

1) holtby must match lundqvist
2) Oates has to outsmart torts/mcdonagh in making Ovie dangerous and tricky. Mcdonagh was very good at defending the "old" ovie
3) torts is on thin ice with the players. If the caps can hold serve, get things tp snowball on NY early in series and get torts pointing fingers; torts will be ex-coach of nyr before the 2nd round begins


Spoken like someone that knows nothing about the Rangers. How did they respond after Gaborik was traded? The mood of the lockerroom changed dramatically after sour puss was traded.

Mactruck, Staal, Girardi, MDZ, Moore....yep they're screwed against new Ovie.

Huh?

I watch a lot of their games. Not many guys like Torts. That ship is run by the respected captain Callahan.

It's not a secret that Torts is the type of guy who wears out his welcome because of his style.

As for my ovie comment, it wasn't that the rangers are a joke defense. My point was that they rely on McDonagh with the role of shutting down ovie like the Bruins with Chara. He is very effective at playing ovechkin; and so my point was that Oates will have to mastermind a plan of attack that makes Ovechkin less predictable for McDonagh, just like he has this season.

That was my point, not a slight on the rangers defense. Just a key for the caps if they want to advance.

22 consecutive playoffs! LETS GO RED WINGS!

I was very happy to see the streak stay alive....I was still in high school when the streak started.

I live about 45 minutes away from Detroit and that streak is a big deal.

It's nice to see Detroit going into the playoffs on a little bit of a roll.

I don't know how far they will go, but I like the fact that they had to get on a little bit of roll to get into the playoffs, as the last handful of games essentially felt like playoff games to them, as they had to win them.

I say my comment again, Cally, Henrik, Stepan, and the team leaders are firmly behind Torts. So is the origination, this isn't a Keenan type situation.

Mac hasn't even been the best player on defense this year.......MDZ has.

we will see what happens. If they lose this series, he is gone IMO.

If they get off to a bad start, Torts starts pointing fingers and it could snowball. That's all I am saying.

I don't question the rangers team leadership; I question Torts staying power even though I actually find the guy to be hilarious and actually like his approach.

Aren't you a caps fan anyway and not a Rangers fan?

I specifically said I thought this series was a COIN FLIP. I also said that the Rangers would be the last team the Pens would want to face as the 8 seed earlier in the thread. So I am not sure where you are getting "Rangers are overrated" from me. If anything, it was SoCalBronco who downplayed my hype of the rangers and said the pens own them.

I even said, that's a team that no one wants to face with their deadline moves, which I thought were great.

I've been a Rangers fan since 1981..... I detest the Capitals more than any other team (the Pens oming in a close second) You make a comment about Torts being out without any clue. If you realized how much the core players like playing for him AND how much insight he has into the draft and player acquisition, you wouldn't have made those comments.

Torts is not like Keenan, he stirs up the media o keep pressure off the players.

Better be ready to get on here and eat crow if the rangers lose in 4 or 5 and Torts is canned.

Just because you play doesn't matter...i was a goalie growing up until to stopped to play lacrosse. sources? I dont doubt you have some but im sure ive got a few more than you....especially ones tied to the Rangers, Caps, and Wings.

You were the one saying the Caps would win in 4/5 and he'd be fired. It started with that.

Don't get your panties in a bunch. I've got a sore spot for people that attack Torts without knowing what the organization feels about him.

So happy the Wings avoided Chicago in round 1, the Blackhawks are out for blood and I don't see who can stop them in round 1.

Anaheim is a really difficult matchup, the Ducks are very good although they definitely lost some steam after the Wings swept them at home. I think the series will come down to officiating and the Red Wings power play, if the refs call the games tight Detroit will get a ton of power play opportunities and should be able to capitalize, if the refs throw the whistle away like they did in the 2007 WCF then the Ducks will win easy.

I said IF. Look it's all good, I really don't care and yeah we can bash the pens whenever. I really think you misunderstood what I was saying.

And btw, I am a huge Torts fan. I actually was hoping the caps wouldn't be so stubborn about keeping Boudreau around and would have either hired him or Laviolette.

Torts and Laviolette are 2 top coaches in my book...

You may be right, I'm just making an educated guess IF they lose in 4 or 5.

He's a great coach. Just from what I know about his history and how he is polarizing. People change. Look at Michel Therien, perfect example. That guy is not the same guy he was in years past so he learned a few things along the way.

All water under the bridge. I just didn't get why you attacked me over giving a hypothetical scenario.

Good luck to you this series. We'll see how it goes...

Isles have some good talent, but they aren't ready. It's over in 5, even without Crosby.

so that means either Jones,MacKinnon or Drouin will be an Av. all three are frickin studs. Barkov rounds out the top 4.

After the Pios fired Gwozdecky, I figured the Avs could get things turned around very quickly if just a couple of things happened.

First, they get the first overall pick in the draft to get Seth Jones.

Second, to hire George Gwozdecky.

The first happened today. Avs with the first pick.... Seth Jones is as good as an Av now. He grew up in Denver. Sakic was his mentor. If the Avs don't take him, then I will be supremely pissed.

Still don't know if Sid was cleared by doctors today. They are keeping it tight lipped.

Looks like Sid has not received clearance for Game 1.

Edit: Sid and Orpik out game 1.

From what Bob MacKenzie tweeted looks like he could go in Game 2 or 3.

Who cares? Someone is just going to drop his shoulder into that fairy, and put him right back on the bench in his dress where he belongs. More than likely it will be one of his own teammates.
And then with all his free time he can get with obama and make the announcement that hes ghey........not that theres anything wrong with that.
