  1. Wings Sign Free Agent Goalie Matej Machovsky

    Not NHL talent anyway.

    Wonder if Fleury can maintain his 0.52 GAA and .982 SV%
  3. 2018 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs Thread

    What goalie was the better choice is tough as they all looked pretty bad. Just going by stats, all had relatively similar SV% numbers, which is the main stat I used....still a flawed stat, but the least flawed stat when looking at goalies Elliott - 4.74 GAA, .856 SV% Neuvirth - 4.40 GAA, .847 SV% Mrazek - 3.87 GAA, .857 SV% Yeah, 5 goals, 9 points in 5 games. No one else on the team had more than 3 points.
  4. I'm can't say for sure, but I don't think this is true. I thought there were legal agreements in place between the NHL and the KHL regarding this type of thing. At the end of the day, technically, if he bailed on his contract, it wasn't with the Wings, it was with the Coyotes.
  5. Perhaps I'm wrong, but I don't see how both obeyed the law or parameters of their contractual obligations with the Wings. Fedorov was a free agent and left....there is no ambiguity there, bad blood, yes, but no contractual concerns. Datsyuk left with term on his contract to play in a different league. I'm guessing this is contrary to his contractual obligations. I'm not sure what "law" would say, but I'm guessing the Wings could have blocked him from being able to play in the KHL if they chose to exercise that option.

    Actually, that's when I tuned in...they were playing 4 on 4....took a penalty, PIT scored and then scored 5 seconds later after they went back to 4 on 4. PIT scored another PP goal apparently.....4 min earlier based on box score.

    Totally forgot about PHI vs PIT game this afternoon. Just tuned in half way through....so, not sure what's transpired so far, but fans are super upset with a penalty call which I can't figure out....wondering if there is more to it from earlier in the game or just PHI fans being PHI fans. The PHI player basically hooked a PIT player....not a normal hook though, he hooked his mouth.....drew blood. PHI actually benefited here as they didn't call a high stick 4 min penalty, they just called it a hook.

    I wonder if PIT would like to have Fleury back....shots 30-17 and down 4-1.
  9. I have no issues with Datsyuk leaving before the end of his contract, that's fine, but only if he's retiring, not to go play hockey somewhere else. Fedorov had his contract issues for sure, but he left the Wings after the end of the his contract.

    Huh? Pens and Caps in round 2 last year was stupid in my mind.....I think they were the top 2 teams in the east....meeting so early. I'm sure the Pens would have loved to not face the President's trophy winners.

    Well, Petr only gave up 2 of the 7 goals against.......

    There's a difference between retiring with term left on your contract and leaving with term left to go play in a different league.
  13. Ovechkin to 1,000 Goals?

    I also think Gretzky could have scored way more goals than he did. He passed up several prime scoring chances to give teammates tap in goals. He was never a shoot first guy. He has more than 2 assist for every goal he's scored. Ovie was clearly the opposite....with less assists than goals. Not basing this on stats though.....spend some time watching Gretzky highlights.
  14. Goligoski Snipe Goal

    Anyone catch his goal last night (1 of 2 on the night). He dumped the puck in.....goalie (Cam Ward I believe) went to stop the puck behind the net.....after which he didn't know where the puck went, so quickly got back into his crease......puck was stuck in his skate and his skate went well over the goal line....therefore, a goal.
  15. It's a good hot take actually. Needs 6 goals...8 games to go. Not likely, but certainly no where near impossible. It's a lofty goals per game pace to get it, but all it takes is a hot streak at the right time.....you don't need to maintain the pace over 20 games
