#2265488 Presidents Trophy

Posted by aMonster on 01 March 2012 - 05:32 PM

Home ice should also translate into quite a bit more rest from travel, which isn't nothing but significant if home ice is Vancouver or San Jose..

#2265295 Presidents Trophy

Posted by lookalive07 on 01 March 2012 - 02:31 AM

Actually a 1 in 4 chance is pretty significant considering 16 teams make it into the postseason

It's actually a lot less of a chance than that. Just because 7 out of 25 teams since its induction have won the President's Trophy have also won the Stanley Cup has nothing to do with the actual percentage that that particular team would win the playoffs that year. Since it's a lot of math and since each series has a number of different outcomes in terms of probability, I won't explain it all, but just trust me when I say that it is definitely not a little more than a 1 in 4 chance that a team is going to win the Stanley Cup just based on history of who has won both in a single season.

Sorry, nerd moment for the night. I get where you are coming from though. Based on history, it does indicate that a little over 25% of the teams that won the President's Trophy have also won the Cup that season, but it's not a cause and effect thing in terms of the playoff format.

Depends on who the President is at the time. :hehe:

Then Tim Thomas refuses to acknowledge that the trophy even exists.

#2265446 Current standings

Posted by Rick D on 01 March 2012 - 02:38 PM

Here they.come....Blues have passed them and Nashville is hot on their tail...I said on deadline day they would drop to 3rd in central and then possibly 6th in conference...

if i recall someone said :hysterical:

Is it funny now? 1st overall before deadline, no moves to make team better, now 4th. I still believe Holland should have done more than kick the tires. Here's to me being wrong!

We have played one game since the deadline, and won.

I hardly think our current position in the standings has much to do with the lack of trades at the deadline.

Guess Z will just have to go out and get himself another one this spring.

#2263230 What goes around...

For those still lamenting the icing call officials gave Vancouver when they snapped Detroits home record a few nights back, check out what happened to the Canucks tonight against the Stars...

This win would have put the Canucks 4 points up on Detroit in the standings so enjoy... what goes around comes around!

Give the guy a break. At least he didn't post something like "BAHAHA WE BEAT YOU!!" I thought we were supposed to welcome posters from other teams, as long as they don't troll the hell out of everything.

#2258383 Sharks May overcome your streak. Otherwise it would be a great game.

Posted by SharksOvercame on 18 February 2012 - 11:07 PM

"Sharks May overcome your streak. Otherwise it would be a great game."

As a fellow shark, and hockey fan, I'd like to bid you a good luck to your next game. All I know is that your streak must end. It will eventually, I do not know if it would be by the sharks, but regardless, I shall take pleasure in it. Regardless of what team, you guys are setting yourselves for a great sigh. A long one.

Anyhow, win or lose, It'll be a hell of a game to watch.


If the sharks break your famous NHL record of yours.... oh lord, your will never heard the end of the sharkie fans.... lol.

With regards, and with great anticipation of tmw's game,

#2256473 Rick Nash "available for the right team/price"

Posted by Guest on 14 February 2012 - 11:43 AM

Franzen has a playoff record like no other. Keep him always.

Filp has been an awesome alround performer on the ice, and this year he is having the breakout production year we knew he was capable of having. He does more things better than Nash. Keep him.

We have a ton of depth, a ton, wich translates to assets.

Hudler has been very good this year, but we ultimately want to get bigger, stronger, faster, and score more. Plus, he gets knocked off the puck too easily come playoff time. And he let us know in his own terms (by going to KHL at the last minute after we already made player movements to committ to him) that there is no family loyalty between he and the Wings.

Hudler will atleast alleviate some of the scoring loss for Columbus. The fact that he is too small, slow, and weak for playoff hockey should be a moot point with Columbus. :lol:

Package Hudler and Kindl with a balance of picks and prospects that we are comfortable with and hope for the best. If it doesn't work, we have lost nothing. If it does work, we have lost minimal and gained more than we ever could have hoped for.

Sell, Kenny, sell that deal!

If Kenny can get Nash for that price then he should have a bronze statue of himself erected outside the Joe. :lol:
