    A game that I will never forget from last year is when Tampa was playing Pheonix at home with like 15 games to play in the season. Pheonix came back to win that game in regulation, semi thanks to Hedman batting the puck into his own empty net. And of course we go on to make the playoffs over Tampa by 1 point

    Just saw that Vegas has a 10 point lead in their division with a game in hand over second place (San Jose). Incredible. I mean barring a massive slump an expansion team will win their division, decisively, in their first season.

    Speechless.

    Gotta wait a few years where their attendance is way down and there is a threat of relocating.

    yes please. any but Ottawa, Buffalo, Montreal, Vancouver or Edmonton and im happy. A west team would be fantastic if Dahlin is as good as touted then id rather only face him 2 times a year

    Honestly i was so wrapped up in the olympics. I do find it hilarious how Ovechkin was all "IM GOING TO THE OLYMPICS AND NO ONE IS GONNA STOP ME.."

    yet... he's not there.

    I'd rather not see Dahlin in the division as well but in fairness the Sens and Habs, even with him, are a bit of a tire-fire that he won't fix alone.. I'd be more worried about the Sabres because they have a lot of pieces already that just need to get on the right track.

    yeah sure but id rather they stay super tire fires not tire fires with a player who might set them in the right direction. It is setting up for the habs to be the leafs of 2005-2015 and I id like it to stay that way

    One thing for sure: the protection rules are changing next expansion draft. Struggling franchises don't want to be leapfrogged by an expansion franchise.

    I think he said that for Sochi, and he did go there, only to flop front of home crowd

    As for around the league

    Nothing satisfies me more than to see Oilers crash and burn. I hope Mcdavid scores and leads the league in points yet his team finished bottom 5
    Oilers are essentially NHL's welfare team

    Chicago, wtf man? You can tell they miss Panarin so much. The skill level is just not there, they have too many grinders all of sudden.
    Saad has 25 points and Panarin who's a game breaker has 45. Pany and Kane had such good chemistry together

    Nah, I'm fine with them being tire fires. Even if they were amazing and we won they'd still find some excuse or nitpick. "Injuries, other goalie was lucky, etc, etc." Excuses are going to be there anyways so I'd rather just enjoy watching them burn. We had to put up with being a lot worse than those teams for a long time. They can deal with it for a good decade or two in return :).

    Chicago is defintely a weird situation.

    Their management group used to be the gold standard of how to run a team in the salary cap era, but the last couple seasons they’ve just made strange move after strange move.

    Like trading for Saad back.....

    Also a good case study on how long term bad contracts can kill competitiveness (ie Seabrook)
