The Canes points at this point are equal to their first 9 games last season.
I don't think NJ is going to stay this hot, and I don't think NYR is going to stay this cold. That's all I really have to contribute.
The biggest issue imo was Peters skipping most of training camp for the World Cup.
Agree. What a load of crap that was. Are they going to ban this WC dumbness like they did the Olympics? Or maybe we can get another Captain have his knee destroyed for no reason.
Keep your pimp hand strong, Bettman.
2 things that stand out to me. First, as good as the Metro is, the schedule is very division focused so there will be a lot of teams losing regardless. And second, I don't get the focus on 96 points. If you're getting 6 in 5 for 80 games, you've got two bonuses where at that rate you should end up at 98 or 99. And I don't see that being below the cutoff
The world cup is run by the NHL, and the NHL gets all of the money and marketing from it (split with the PA, of course), so it's pretty much the literal opposite of the Olympics from the NHL's point of view.
But I do think that it was a mistake for Peters to take the World Cup coaching job. Yeah, prestige and it's great to go when your country calls, but it did hurt the team in a very real way. That's not on the World Cup or the NHL, that's on Peters for accepting the gig.
Well, it was fun while it lasted...
4-4-2 in the first 10, -2 pace
4-1-0 in the next 5 and they're right back on track!
Avs, Yotes, and Panthers coming up
They're going to **** this up for sure
herp derp team bad
guaranteed loss vs Yotes if they are still winless
Remember that time when Vancouver was on a 10 game losing streak, their players were getting into fights in practice, the fans were calling for the coaches head, and we ended it for them?
Bad is #overstatement, so is good.
-2 on the pace through the 1st 15
But do have 6 points in the last 4
Updated, Need to have a better set, the 1-3-1 week put us 2 behind the pace.
Handle your business on the road, boys.
I best shut up before I say what we all think...
We'll be fine when we win eleventeen straight
Hang within -5ish of "6 points in 5 games" until February and then hope for 20 points in the 13 games that month (at the very least).
We play the pens AND caps 3 times over the next month ish. Who TF makes these schedules
