It still would be nice to have that one guy.

A Sharks fan's already done it.  They gained over 1k in votes in the 2 minutes I was on the site.


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Doesn't matter if Nyquist wins by vote or not, he definitely had the play of the year as far as I recall.

We did it last year to get Datsyuk the win.

 

We should be doing it again...I can't remember who wrote the script though.

It wouldn't be as exciting but it should just be one vote per account per matchup. Then people who have to at least go through the trouble of making multiple accounts and keep the competition somewhat fair.

Anyone else think it's ridiculous that these two goals are going at it at the very start of the bracket? Put them on opposite ends and there's a real possibility they end up in the final, maybe with Hemsky's goal the only other challenger. 

 

Nyquist's is way better though. Nathan Gerbe did the same thing as Hertl did on a better goalie in a game that wasn't 7-2.

The Hertl goal is impressive, but not as impressive as people seem to think. 97% of the forwards in the league could pull it off (even goons are way more skilled than they're perceived to be), just as 97% of the goalies in the league could hit an empty net at the opposite of the rink. If you had everyone trying "the Hertl," you'd have at least one on NHL Tonight's nightly highlight reel for a couple months straight, and then goalies would catch on and it'd die out and no one would really miss it, cuz it's an unoriginal shootout move (lest we forget, Hertl wasn't the first to do it). If you had every goalie trying "the Brodeur," you'd have at least one on NHL Tonight's nightly highlight reel for a couple months straight, and then the novelty would wear off.

 

Nyquist's goal is something else. How many times have we seen "the Nyquist" before? How many times will we see it again? Sure, it's largely luck, but 1) he earns that luck, and 2) so what? (There's a little bit of "luck" in every goal.) For me, it's just a classic hockey play. Not a nifty little shootout move that, with enough practice, anyone could pull off. Determination, sheer force of will, and then a one-in-a-hundred oh-why-not swing for the fences, since he's battled so hard for it anyway (and that's a hell of a battle, btw) - and he connects, and he knocks it out of the park. And that goalie he beats? One of the best in the league this season. (As we now know, he was the Lightning's season. They're not the same team without him. Just saying.)

 

The other thing about the Hertl goal - the game was already decided. I think it's much easier to pull that off when the opposing team has laid down and died. It's "Good for you, have a cookie" territory. It's awesome that it was his fourth or fifth of the night, but, well, sorta case in point.

some don't remember the ballot stuffing All Star game debacle.  No question Nyquist's goal required more talent and skill.  We know that... but he will not win this vote. 

 

He's got mine, needless to say.  ;)

Nyquist just scored a really sweet goal in the world championship against Denmark, I expect we will all see the gif before this day is over.

what is maclennen talking about? that move is innovative? That move had been washed up 4 years ago. It was a clear breakaway goal on a terrible goalie in a blowout game

 

Great goals are against great players and where the player makes quick instinct moves. not something every player has been practicing since peewee


The one where datsyuk did the same thing was far more impressive even though he didn't score. It was against the coyotes in the playoffs and datsyuk was flying full speed with a couple guys hanging off him and he was able to do the between the legs move because that was the only play that would allow him to get a shot off. it was saved but somebody potted the rebound

Personally I preferred Hertl's goal... Its kind of a battle of skill vs. determination

 

Hertl's goal put biron into retirement haha

Pavel datsyuk is the best player in the world because he snatches the puck from unsuspecting players and  follows it up by the simultaneous undressing of the defence pairing.  The end result is a calm skate back to his bench  where he can bask in the praise of his multiple girlfriends from the motherland.
