    Judging by the Ducks' GDT it seems like they were happy with Brown's debut with them. Picked up an assist too.

    It felt that Islanders have been going really well at late, so thought they might be catching up on us, only to realize we have 15 points on them with a game on hand, crazy!

    Boston has played well at late and could be just 5 points behind us if they win their games in hand on us though.

    God, he's been bad. Who saw this coming? We all know he's capable of more, just doesn't seem to want to put in the work.

    I didn't expect him to be this bad. I also didn't expect him to magically turn into a 70+ point player like some, though.

    But he's been REALLY bad. I can't imagine Bergevin keeps his job after this.

    I expected Drouin to at least stay the same level of player he was in Tampa. I don't even know what happened to that guy. Whether he was playing good or bad, he was always visible on the ice and now he's become the type of player you barely even notice.

    Yeah it'd be hard to imagine. Then again, Molson seems to love him for some reason.

    I think Mr. Vinik is assessing the situation incorrectly here. First, lockouts are going to keep happening because looking like *******s isn't bad for business (not talking about anyone in particular. I'd vote to lockout if I didn't have a CBA, but getting there is a such an issue, and what's wrong with a provisional CBA that no one likes just to make sure that games get played?). These guys only get a few kicks at the can here too for an Olympic medal. A World Cup of Hockey isn't that, and it's been normalized because the NHL has been going since '98. Basically the belief, whether the league will ever acknowledge or accept it, is that the NHL doesn't like this Olympics being in South Korea specifically, and are much more willing to go to China in '22.

    It doesn't matter if that's true or not. That's what's the perception is.

    I'll wait for the details of course, but I'm a bit surprised. From my understanding, people in the depths of depression aren't encouraged to withdraw from their jobs and routines.

    He should have jumped into Smith. As we learned recently jumping into the goalie would have made it a good goal.

    This is going to sound horrible but at the time I wasn't so sure he wasn't battling drug addiction. Lord knows it can happen to anyone. I just hope Paul is happy now. He was one of my favorites for sure

    When do the tickets for NHL games go for sale? And would it be around the same time for the games in Finland next season? I don't want to miss out because I'm too late to buy them.

    When the games were in Sweden earlier this season I got an e-mail from NHL.com that I could order them on pre-sale and this was around the end of March so it might be a good time to keep an eye around that time since the games in Sweden were in November and the games in Finland will also be in November, but you can always check the place that usually sell hockey tickets since sometimes they will write when ticket goes online.
