Daniel Larsson.  I don't think he played in the NHL though.  He left the AHL to go back to Sweden.


Or Gustavsson.  He was in net yesterday for Boston after Rusk got pulled

I wonder how much Parise and Suter are enjoying playing in Minnesota now.  Stamkos should take note if Toronto's on his radar.  


Their wives are presumably happy because that's where they wanted live, and they're gazillionaires, and they get a longer summer holiday.  Sounds like a recipe for a good life to me.


Just because they're not winning hockey games doesn't mean that they're not winning everything else in life.

Follow me here, I got it all figured out. I read this this morning on the Twitter:

NHL Public Relations ‏@PR_NHL  30s30 seconds ago

Per @EliasSports: @Avalanche Semyon Varlamov is 14-3-3 in 20 career regular-season GP when making 40 or more saves.


So, ipso facto, if the Wings, or whomever take like only TEN shots on goal, this guy is a statistical sieve. Don't shoot on net most of the time, just pass it back and forth or play the board game for no good reason = WIN!



It makes sense. If he makes 40+ saves in a game, he's giving his team a good chance to win.


I bet most goalies share a similar win percent in 40+ save games
