Buffalo Sabres 41-1 to win the Cup. How stupid am I? btw, Leafs are (19)67-1. sorry, noticed it, couldnt help myself.I think if Buffalo gets into #8 and plays the Rangers, Sabres win round 1.

Best case is Buffalo somehow gets the #7 seed and faces Boston, I think they're much more vulnerable than the Rangers are. Buffalo took down King Henrik in the playoffs once, but I don't think they can take them again. Of course, I didn't think Buffalo would even sniff the playoffs in March, so what do I really know...

I don't know, I was pretty happy to hear that bryzgalov has been meme'd in the gaming community. he's a quote machine and it's about time that he's recognized as such.

There are rumours that Radulov might come back to Nashville this year and be able to play in both the regular season and playoffs without going through waivers.He is exactly what they need and if they can add him that would push Nashville right up there in the West I would think.

Makes sense since he is technically under contract but wouldn't that mean any team that has signed a player but who is in Europe could do that? I'm pretty sure that's not possible so what makes his situation different?

Nail Yakupov took a big hit tonight and is out with a "possible concussion". Hypothetically does he still go #1 if he misses the rest of the year with a concussion? I dont think an NHL team would want to take that risk first overall...cant see him dropping that much though. The coach also made a big deal about the hit being dirty. The hit was definitely a head shot but with Yakupov leaning forward I dont know what else the defenceman is supposed to do.

Haven't watched the hit, but..."What else is the defenceman supposed to do?"Not try to murder him.See also: Kronwall, Nick

The only way I see Yakupov not going 1st overall is if the team that has the pick trades back to a team that wants to take Matthew Dumba. Pretty much everyone in this draft is taking hits to their stock so the rankings are staying the same but the expectations are depreciating.

Justin Schultz has The Ducks over a barrell. He can become an UFA this Summer if he doesn't sign with them. This article really explains it well.http://www.buckys5th...ack-for-schultz

Basically the same loophole Blake Wheeler exploited, right?
