Re: NHL 16-17 Season Official Thread <3

I'm not even really excited about the Red Wings this year, what I am excited about are these facts:

Games it took to get 4 career goals:

Matthews - 1
McDavid - 7
Gretzky - 10
Crosby - 13
Lemieux - 15

Hope these kids stay healthy because they're sure as **** fun to watch.

Re: NHL 16-17 Season Official Thread <3

Oilers finally cut the cancer from their team and are starting to play as a team. Putting team before individual stats. Apparently RNH had a big say in pushing for Hall to be traded as well, so the players seem to have known where the problem lay. Yak was a good kid and wasn't given the same opportunity as Hall and Eberle were here. He was also potentially the worst player of the last 3 years, so they won't miss him on the ice. Sort of a mistake here, as what they should have done is dump Ebs and put Yak in that spot. Same or better production at 3.5M or so less for a few years.

They just need to dump Eberle and possibly Nurse and they are a legitimate contender soon.

Ovechkin/Selanne - 5. Surprised about Lemieux. What a slacker.

Hard to read much from 2 games vs Calgary.

No early games. Too much respect for Baseball?

Since Yak will quite obv fail and Hall will most likely thrive this hot take will just fizzle away.


On the other hand Lucic looked great out there last night.

Quick with a serious groin issue. Possible surgery. out 3-4 months. My personal bet is he plays <10 games this year.

Odds OIl finish higher in the standings than Kangz?

Budaj had the best numbers in the AHL last year. The Kings should at least try him before trading for scrubs like Pavelec.

Re: NHL 16-17 Season Official Thread <3

How long has this TO intro been going? The game isn't even scheduled until the hour. Just waiting for The Blue Jays to finish?

Why is this the lead-in for The Jets' Game?

The LA Kings are going find a trade with The Jets, 3 or 4 teams involved, if they're given enough time.

If Lombardi doesn't dump something when taking him, he should get fired on the spot.

Re: NHL 16-17 Season Official Thread <3

Right, the lines the Jets were practicing with Little out week-to-week:

Laine-Scheifele-Wheeler
Connor-Perreault-Stafford
Ehlers-Burmistrov-Mathias
Armia-Lowry-Tanev
Thorburn in for Armia

Stuart in for Chiarot

Still in the pipe
De Leo, Dano, Copp, Lemieux

Re: NHL 16-17 Season Official Thread <3

My guess is Pavelec would look as good on the Kings as all the goalies L.A. traded to Edmonton. They could probably recoup their millions by signing him cheap and trading with Lowe again.

I expect Winnipeg would keep paying a big part of the contract.

A New Brunswick recruiting commercial? Wild.

Laine needs his Housley.

Anyone who watched L.A. yesterday should watch Minne today.

The speed is so different.
