Goal of the year? Maybe? Am I just going crazy?
Certainly goal of the year for me. What a move in such a tight space. And just a great 2-on-1 breakaway by our no 2 and no 1 picks
The Rangers goal of the year yea. Hopefully the next 20 years we will be looking at that goal as the beginning of something beautiful
Petr Nedvěd (who is the GM of the Czech national team) said that he counts with Chytil and Hájek).
Posily z NHL se hlásí o start na MS! Konečně padla konkrétní jména
Which is weird if they can't make it on time.
Yes but I think the Czech Rep has very lenient quarantine rules compared to Finland.
Also crazy how both the passer and the scorer displayed elite creativity and hands on that play. So satisfying
There was a play earlier where Krava on the forecheck, Kakko on the boards and Jones on the blueline all showed glimpses of what's to come. Let me find it
It felt like everything in the past few years lead to that moment in time. And like you said, hopefully it’s just the beginning.
Oh wow thank you. I would have never known because I missed the 1st. What a bittersweet game. The future was really on display, but then Wilson had to ruin it for everyone.
The game was great until the Wilson moment. We were up 3-2, Top line produced, the kids scored a highlight reel goal, the young kids on the blueline stepped on, Shestyorkin made key saves
Then this mouth-breathing sorry excuse for a human being decided to punch Buchnevich in the head while he was in a defenseless position before pulling Panarin down by his hair.
This game was fun. Until the refs f***ed it up.
I’m just so lost for words after that. Never felt this way after a game. Maybe I’m crazy, but I think he should be permanently banned from the league. Also it’s such a Rangers thing to have OUR star player attacked. That doesn’t happen to other teams, does it?
Messier did it to Modano
Stevens did it to Kariya
But this type of stuff doesn't happen in 2021. Well, it shouldn't. This neanderthal league needs to step up if it ACTUALLY cares about player safety. But with former goon George f***ing Parros in charge, I doubt it
But still, Messier and Stevens were far better and more relevant players than Wilson, no? Either way, yea I’m just plain pissed at that psycho
Big difference is those hits were deemed legal back then.
Yeah, I'm not justifying what Wilson did (check my Twitter feed haha). It happened before but to my knowledge I have to go back as far as 20 years to even think of an example.
It's absolutely disgusting and the people defending this are idiots. This has NOTHING to do with hockey, at all. This isn't "toughness" or "grit". This isn't a player trying to spark something. This was 3 incidents in 30 seconds which all 3 are worthy of a suspension and if this happens in a beer league game, the police is taking him away.
The NHL has to stop protecting these criminals.
This is actually unreal!
Very happy for him
Absolutely. Tom Wilson should not be suspended...
He should be charged with assault and indicted.
I don't think he's a nasty per se but he plays with a little chip on his shoulder that I like.
I don't think he cares that he gets hit and most guys regret hitting him anyway.
Adam Graves was like that. The man is a literal angel but he took abuse without flinching.
He literally doesn't give a f*** lol. I was very surprised he was the first guy to react when Laf went down after that goal vs Devils. Very un-Kakko-like.
That's his buddy. He won't let anything happen to him.
That's another thing I love. They play left and right respectively and there's a bit of chemistry there.
Love what Kakko is becoming. Only really thing that's lacking is his slight indecisiveness to shoot and quality of wristshot. First will come naturally and second can be worked on. Can't wait to see what he ultimately becomes
I think a lot of that is simply confidence, and becoming more familiar with the NHL game. Once he relaxes, like he has began to do, and let his instincts and creativity take over, the shot selection, directness etc will fall in place. Strength, shot, skating will become stronger over the next few seasons too <3
He is going to be a very good player. Reminds me a little bit of early Corey Perry in terms of playstyle (not personality).
You can argue those were "hockey" plays. Although they were dirty they weren't criminal. Domi sucker punch on Ulf, Bertuzzi on Moore, McScorely crosscheck on Brashear and Wilson are all criminal actions in the veiled disguise as being part of the game.
Lots of people complain that he rather dekes than shoots. Well, that goal last night worked out pretty well.
