Dafuq am I looking at? It looks like a CAD drawing of a die for use in Dungeons and Dragons. 

I couldn't see it either, it asked to download some app, eventhough I'm on a pc


Here's the Chart

A slow piece of s***. But who cares, speed doesn't matter in hockey anyway.


Can Lucic play without the puck? You've got to be able to play without the puck if you want to have any success in this league. The best offense is never having the puck and always defending. Can Lucic never have the puck and always defend? Can he block shots? Can he kill penalties? Can he take faceoffs? Can he Luke Glendening? Can he Drew Miller? Can he fourth line? Is he a proven winner? Is he a guy you win with? Is he elite, elite? Is he real good? Is he heavy on the puck? Is he real responsible defensively? Is he real good defensively? Is he grit? Is he leadership? Is he veteran? Is he leadership veteran? Is he experience? Is he big? Is he physics??? Is he from the Michigans?????

On topic I think the Penguins could have held their parade on another day.

#2677837 NHL Chooses Las Vegas for 17-18 Expansion

Posted by Seraph on 15 June 2016 - 10:21 PM

This is just so the boys can party on the road in Vegas for a couple years. I am thinking the away team will have a bad record there playing on a hangover. Then they will move somewhere deserving.

What a blunder. Seattle or Portland are open markets. They are so bored there that soccer is huge. Now that's a statement.

Parity is a joke. End the Cap now.

I can see this. Blashill is a lot like Babs he expects a lot out of his centermen but mostly safe defensive play before before offense. Richards isn't great defensively, mostly because of his skating, but he's not going to make careless plays with the puck that we might see more from AA if he starts getting a lot of minutes

It's frustrating, especially since we struggle to score but I understand this philosophy and we see more centermen in the league like Toews and Kopitar having more team success then guys like Duchene and maybe a reason Stamkos doesn't play centre for Cooper

I disagree with the bolded. Richards was a turnover machine and play killer for large parts of many nights. Every now and then he would have the wiley veteran play but he was also a hindrance to the team. I really hope he doesn't come back.

The Abdelkader salary argument doesnt even make sense anymore.

Nyquist has a higher cap hit than Abdelkader and had two less goals and one more point than him.

Nyquist - $4.75 mill. 17 goals 43 points.
Abdelkader - $4.25 mill 19 goals 42 points.

Tell me again why this is an issue? The only issue I had was the length of term. Oh wait maybe the issue is Abdelkader actually hits his opponents, kills penalties and stands up for his teammates.

After his performance this season and in the playoffs, he'll have a chance. Depending on what happens at the draft and FA, I would be shocked if Sproul isn't the #7 out of camp.

How about #2 and Ericksson  #7

Great. Awesome. Go write about it in your Gustav Nyquist fan blog before you tuck yourself into bed under your Gustav Nyquist goose down comforter so you can have Gustav Nyquist dreams about Gustav Nyquist scoring 1 Gustav Nyquist point every 300 minutes of Gustav Nyquist playoff hockey. I don't care anymore.

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 16 May 2016 - 08:46 AM

Better team when?  They got smoked on just about every metric throughout the whole game


The Sharks had 9 more shots and controlled the play.  They held the Blues to 23 SOG.  If not for Elliott, the Sharks win the game.  They were all over the Blues in the 3rd.    


Did some Sharks players snub you of an autograph back home or something?

Am I the only one who is not as excited about this anymore since the announcement? I should be, but I'm still just a little jaded over the roof...

Sure we have history with the Sharks but to I'm pretty much over it. The Sharks are a pretty likeable team to me and they play a good brand of hockey. Pavelski and Burns are awesome

I think it's the Sharks year. Their best players are playing like there best players and also getting very solid production from secondary scorers plus their power play is lethal. They got a lot going for them right now
