    Hometown players.

    From Howell, MI and played at UofM. He was drafted early in the second round in 2000 by Boston. Never really put it together in the NHL, minus 19 games with Pittsburgh where he had 18 points. I believe he was on Crosby's wing for that. Retired fairly young because of injury.

    Zetterberg & Fedorov VS Yzerman and Datsyuk

    Both pairs would be amazing to watch, but I just feel like I'd prefer Feds and Z.

    It's inevitable (unfortunately)

    Predators or Bolts for me. I do like the Jets alot as well.
  6. Hmm, learn something new every day. Guess I really never paid close enough attention.
  7. Where they finish the regular season doesn't affect draft position for playoff teams. If they get swept in the first road, the pick will be in the mid/high teens. I'd much rather have dealt Nyquist, but trading Tatar made the most sense going forward and the return is far better than anyone could have guessed.

    Sidney Crosby on the dangers of the NHL

    You meant Cindy Crybaby, right?

    And I'd imagine Vegas isn't upset about taking William Karlsson because of that player protection. They really made out well by taking Clarkson's contract.

    Looks like stand pat time for Kenny

    Not hard enough...

    Shero & Bylsma Fired

    Only until the new GM decides the future of Bylsma and the assistants, which pretty much guarantees he's out of a job.

    How much of a steal was James Neal for Pitt?

    Agreed. I think it was pretty even up between the two of them. Getting Niskanen in the deal the way he is playing right now is the steal of the deal.

    Breakout rookies for the 2011-2012 season

    x2 He also can't be a honorable mention, when he was mentioned.

    Red Wings Interested In Conklin?

    Good luck getting Rafalski to waive his trade clause.

    Automatic Chara suspension recinded

    It's pretty clear he was reacting to the slash that Gaustad gave him, which would then be explain by the bold and underlined text in the rulebook.

    Babcock: Goaltending the best since I've been here

    In my opinion this is exactly what Babcock is doing and it makes complete sense.

    What do you consider Kronwall's goal tonight?

    Correct, both goalies get shutouts if it goes to a shootout because no goals were allowed in regulation or OT. So since the game against Columbus DIDN'T go to a shootout because Modin scored in OT that would be why Howard didn't get a shutout... Kronwall's goal is credited as a Game Deciding Goal...not a Game Winning Goal. There is a difference between the two. Game Deciding Goals pertain to shootouts ONLY. And teams can win games even with the opposing goalie getting a shutout simply because it went to a shootout with no goals being allowed in regulation or OT. Shutouts pertain to regulation and OT only.

    Left Handers

    I am left-handed and shot right. My dad is right-handed and shots left. When he first gave me a stick he told me to hold it how it was comfortable. That is what he was told when he was a kid. He is from MN, so maybe there is some Canadian influence there.
