Is East just as good or better than West this year?

Yesterday, 12:40 PM

Since trades are at a bit of a lull right now...


The top 6 teams in the East are all over 80 points and only 3 teams in the West are at that level.  Is this mostly due to more high end and low end teams in East vs. more parity in the West?


For what it's worth, East vs. West games have been almost a dead heat....with the West having a very slightly better win percentage (175-130-42 for East vs. West and 181-140-35 for West vs. East).


Maybe it's just me....but I haven't really noticed any big and scary, consistently dominating West teams yet this year.  Nashville is the obvious team to point to (1st overall), but for some reason I just don't see them as dominating....maybe that's just history and I'll just need to get used to it...we'll see.

Leafs Make History

They lost their 11th game in a row last night, the most ever in team history.  And with the Leafs, that's means something since they have quite a long history,,,most losses in a row in the last 100 years.


Edit....the joke was, going into last night's game.....the last time they had lost 10 games in a row was the last year they won the cup.

Jonathan Bernier - Nelson Mandela Comments

Anyone hear about this? The Toronto Raptors held a bit of a ceremony on Friday night before their game to honor Nelson Mandela....I didn't see it, but apparently they made a big deal out of it and several big names flew in for it (e.g. Magic Johnson).


Anyway, some of the Maple Leafs came out for the event as well, red carpet type thing.  Jonathan Bernier was one of them and he got asked a couple questions that went something like this (not exact words):


Reporter: How important is the legacy of Nelson Mandela to you?


Bernier: Well, he's obviously been a tremendous athlete and has meant so much to sports all over the world.  He really showed how the world can be impacted by sports.  He's definitely one of the athletes I watched growing up as well.

Malkin hit on Girardi

Anyone see it?  Been a while since I've seen a hit that square, that hard.

Michael Del Zotto

I'm sure most have heard the embarrassing stories about him by now.  I can't figure out what's wrong, but I can cut and paste anything in there, quote button doesn't work probably either.


Anyway, the gist of the story is that he hooked up with a porn star a couple years ago and he's been pestering her ever since on twitter....not to get back with her, but for her to hook him up with dates on the road in various cities.  She calls him out as the most annoying twitter follower. 


I'm sure if you just google Del Zotto, you'll find the details.
