The Caps were a means for Ted to eventually acquire the Wizards.

Yep, it's looking more like it. Wish he would sell already.

Also, seems like he is cheap in general. Otherwise why veto a James Harden deal just because you don't want to give him the 5 yr $80M extension. Harden has made the rockets a legitimate playoff team and they can build upon that now.

Wizards are a joke.

Edit: I would be so embarrassed to have the distinction of last place NBA AND NHL teams. Have some pride.

Take this with a grain of salt please lol, I was told to keep my mouth shut; but FWIW, Mcphee is in desperation mode and is looking all over the place for help.

Apparently, he is trying real hard to get a sign and trade deal with Avs for O'Reilly. IMO, I don't think Avs do it unless they fleece the caps.

God I hate O'Bryne. What a terrible defenseman! Thought for sure the Avs would cut his sorry ass this past off season. I wouldn't miss O'Bryne, Hunwick, Kobasew, Olver or any other guy that should be in the AHL.

I have to admit, Luongo is playing like a top 3 goalie in the league right now and probably top goalie.

Vancouver is in a weird ass situation.

It's baffling the way they defended Benn tonight. I mean come on, that's THE guy you have to take away.

Way, way too much sagging from the avs tonight. Not sure if they were tired or just not mentally up for it, but they were a step behind tonight.

The way they let the stars wind it up on the delayed penalty and just let Benn get a clean shot on the go ahead goal like that is just as unacceptable as it gets.

It doesn't help when half the roster is filled with guys that should be in the AHL. Maybe I'm a little to harsh on Sacco. At some point they need to bring in better players. I have no clue wtf this franchise sees in Hunwick. If they wanted that type of defensemen then maybe they shouldn't have handed Toranto Liles. This franchise doesn't seem to really want to pay their best players. The longer they don't sign O'Reilly the more I think they'll just trade him for a sack of marbles like what they did with Liles!

Looks like Kun-itz was given his fourth goal after the NHL changed it when we routed Washington on Sunday. Nice.

Fasth is 3-0 in his 1st 3 starts for the Ducks.
I like that hes pushing Hiller, and turning up the heat a bit.
Back-to-back Swedish League goalie of the year.

And ANA has Deslauriers and Gibson at goalie too!!
Loaded.

Nah, Columbus or Calgary (except they have only played like 5 games) are definitely the worst. Seriously, who gave Columbus a hockey team?

Ohio shouldn't have any sports teams. Do they even have a good one? Ohio has been crap since the mid-1800s when expansion Westward and the advent of train and canal technologies passed them by and they have been on a steady decline ever since. It's amazing how irrelevant that state is, but they are still have a bunch of sports teams.

Garbage.

Fixed for ya if anything from the last few games tells you that it is now correct.

Ducks get revenge on Sharks and pull within 2 points and game at hand. Looks like a possible division tie after Ducks take on the Avs in Denver. See $5 tickets available on Stubhub. Pathetic!

I believe he just took over the starting job over hiller. Giving up 4 goals against the Kings probably helped Bruce figure this one out. He is on fire and his poke save on a breakaway was awesome. European goalie style is back!

I would disagree.

If Columbus can get going and be successful in the WIN column, it can be a good hockey city. They have a nice arena and its surrounding area called the "Arena District" is pretty nice. It's a good sports town, like new franchise, the Blue Jackets need to start winning for hockey to catch on there.

Impressive win last night vs the Sharks. Souray can still shoot.

Columbus is all about OSU, any other team will always be secondary.

Columbus can get decent fan support, the infrastructure and everything else is there. Just need to win games over a period of time. There's a lot of NHL teams (Especially in the United States) that are second or third fiddle to another team in a different sport.

I agree. OSU football and basketball doesn't play all the time and there are also people that don't give a **** about OSU but live there. LA has Dodgers/Angels and Lakers (and now the damn Clippers) and hockey has done well especially if there is a winning product. Of course LA/OC is much bigger area but Columbus doesn't have much for pro teams so here is there chance to jump on a local bandwagon.
