I mean, in this imaginary scenario, I'm still Mike Fisher and Carrie Underwood is still my wife and has been for a long time and will be for a long time. We aren't talking about a binary -sex with Carrie underwood or hang out with the boys- situation.

Bobby Ryan needs better hockey gloves.

I love the honesty from Taylor Hall here:
"There's some guys who can really tolerate pain and play through a lot of stuff," Hall said. "Throughout my career, I've kind of struggled at that, to be honest, so better off to take a couple games and make sure it's OK."

Personally, I think hockey/sports culture is a little messed up, in that there is way too much "playing through the pain/injury". Too much macho bull

I love to see the 18 teams on Rick Nash's no trade list..

My bet is he is going to Nashville..Its the right fit..They are a legit cup contender and would make sense..

I doubt the Leafs would be interested..I dont think he is a right fit, for the team as it currently stands..Unless we are going to move JVR for a defenceman

Here is the thing with Kessel...I loved him for a long time..Then he let me down, when he tanked it and mailed it in for a long time with the Leafs...I had hatred for him...But it wasnt his fault mainly..

Then as you know I m not a Penguins fan..But now the hatred has fainted for a while...I like the guy..He is great for the sport..He is really a genuine funny dude and not the prototype athlete...

So yes I am ok with him winning..

Man... Alex Burrows should have probably received a 50 game suspension. What a total piece of shit.

What he did was inexcusable. Should not be in the league. Hall hit was totally legal

Agreed. Now I know he has always been a piece of shit. Was surprised he has only been suspended once for 3 games previously.

Tanking maybe strong words but I certainly got the impression he wasn't giving 100% at that time

I love it. They know they have smart fans (for the most part I guess) who will understand and appreciate the strategy as a smart long term play to win a Championship, not just wallow in mediocrity or worse.
Good for them.

It would be awesome if Elliott Friedman write a book on the first year of the Vegas Golden Knights.

wrong thread! lol
I put it in Habs thread.

To be fair,I had no idea it was a racial slur. But I really liked the explanation by the reporter that Subban was called Monday because no one likes Mondays.(Boomtown Rats, great song!)

I like how the Sens couldn't get anything at all of value in return.
