Anybody else having an issue logging on to NHL.com for GCL? It tells me I have to create a new password, which I do, but then the submit button is faded/doesn't let me click it.

Laine makes it close.

Now for Connor to tie it up.

Re: NHL 16-17 Season Official Thread <3

Completely on board for the Red Wings tank job this season. They might be the worst team in the NHL. I was pissed when they were up 2-0 and 3-1, still felt they would blow it though.

I'm probably going to watch a lot more games this season, since my goal for the team is a lot more likely to be reached, getting the top pick, as opposed to every other year, CUPPING.

Team is just completely void of young talent besides Larkin. Gonna need a few drafts to reload.
GOOOOO EVERYONE PLAYING THE WINGS!!!

Let's do this!

Perreault. It's being challenged...

Oh, they're just slowing the game down.

Tied. Jump! is the new goal song, according to the radio.

OT!

Speaking of Quick, WTH is the word on his injury. All I'm seen is lower body, but I really didn't see much on the "slide" where I've read it happened.

IDK what the schedulers were thinking. I can understand doing something like this 2 days before the AS break, but LOL on day 2.

BTW, that Matthews kid seems like he might just be serviceable! Loved his mom's reactions during the game.

Huge thumbs up to the sharks actually getting to hand a respectable banner

Got to see one of my favs in D. Setoguchi play at the tank again, not sure how much he's gonna be able to help the Kangz this season though. I also see Donskio having a very good season this year for my beloved chokez.

Nope, just realistic about where the Kangz are at. Basically the same team as last year (-lucic) and a year older. Add in not much in the pipeline or a willingness to give them a shot. So yeah.

Glad I drafted Nic Backstrom in my poll. He's poised for a big season now that he has a better winger playing along side him. Too bad i didnt draft Burakovsky as well

Only thing I know about Vachon is that Jeff Marek loves him but well that doesn't say much for old players

What's RAT been up to? After the more or less glorious returns of cashy and Sugar Nut, surely he's next

Re: NHL 16-17 Season Official Thread <3

oh, and today's LOL Benning moment of zen:

Quote:
In January of 2015, when the Vancouver Canucks traded Gustav Forsling to Chicago for Adam Clendening, they did it with the expectation that Clendening could step into their lineup right away and help the team.

At the time, Clendening was 22, while Forsling was just 18.

Today, Clendening is with the Rangers (it never worked out for him in Vancouver, and he was dealt to Pittsburgh as part of the Brandon Sutter trade), while Forsling is playing for the Blackhawks after making the team out of camp.

So, does Canucks GM Jim Benning regret trading Forsling?

“Well, no
, I drafted him, I saw him lots in his draft year. I knew he was a good player,” Benning said yesterday on TSN 1040 radio. “He’s a skilled player and he’s got an excellent shot.

“You know, where we were at when we made the deal, our guys believed in Adam Clendening and so we made the deal to give him a chance. That didn’t work out, but I move on. We’ve got Troy Stecher, and that’s a similar type player. He’s going to be a real good player for us moving forward.”
http://nhl.nbcsports.com/2016/10/14/...k-good-on-him/

Gustav Forsling is currently playing for the Chicago Blackhawks, including on the powerplay
Troy Stetcher is currently playing for the Utica Comets
Stetcher is also 2 years older than Forsling
(also, the Canucks have ~2 dmen that can play on the PP)

and of course, it's not an either/or proposition given that you dress 6 dmen every night

of course Benning is either too stupid to realize these things, or too much of an ******* to ever admit an obvious mistake

or both

Re: NHL 16-17 Season Official Thread <3

Davey Keon named top Leaf OAT. (my very first favorite player) Sittler at #4, Salming at #8. All seems legit. Syl Apps at #2 seems apt as my brother was roommates with his grandson in the 80's. The grandson went on to win an Olympic Gold in rowing and many others in the family were elite athletes.

So you wanna be an NHL goalie in the 1950's and 60's?
