    CBS saying that Bruce Cassidy said Pastrnak was going to be double shifted at RW tonight because they don't think Backes is a fit at #2RW.

    What a fit for Simmonds...beside Krejci and DeBrusk.

    I think Boston is a really likely landing spot for Simmonds. We better make them overpay though.

    From the main boards...Leafs fan saying a Toronto media guy suggested it would cost the leafs Nylander for Simmonds...lol.

    Man...if GM's would listen to media, we could get a haul for Simmer. Hopefully Hockey Central at noon will start talking more about possible trades.

    :) and as I write this...the big bad Bruins take the lead!

    Their production level. Giroux's not going to be a 100+ points player every year. Voracek may never reach 85 points again. Couturier and Ghost will have to prove that last season wasn't an anomaly.

    The PP scoring wasn’t far out of normal ranges though, which was specifically what I was looking at.

    CBC saying Marner was willing to sign for 9 million x 8 years in the summer. Leafs said no.

    Now Marner's agent saying if the talk is still 9 million...it will be on a shorter deal.

    :)

    I don’t really blame them, like where really was the benefit there from the team perspective.

    I agree....at 9 it was a big risk.

    The worst for them is that with Nylander out, Kap stepped in and is now going to get a bigger deal than if Nylander had been with the Leafs all year and played as expected.

    I think teams are playing the PP more aggressively (including the Flyers lately) and the Flyer players are still adjusting to that new approach by the PK. Flyers like to hold the puck and wait for the perfect pass, but PK defenders aren't giving them time, but moving the puck around quickly is not something you can master in a week.

    They were just as good last year without B Schenn, so the personnel hasn't really changed, and JVR is as good or better than B Schenn as a PP scorer.

    Ghost is also "off," his shooting is much worse this year, doesn't get the puck on net as much, and just doesn't look as confident as last season.

    Point was ranked top 40 by most services. Had 91 points in 72 games his draft year on a team where 2nd best was 55 points in 58 games. Not one where you act too surprised in hindsight.

    So, I wouldn't just fire Hextall. I'd fire Clarke and Homer. And Fletcher. And Jonesy.

    Giroux, Jake, and Ghost scored at rates of 7-7.6 points/60 last season versus 4.75-6 points/60 in Schenn's final season. Rates and chances were similar. You have to remember PP2's effect on team stats. Last year they were humming on PP1. You could point to many reasons why. But last year's success is a fact.

    Coots was a lot more effective on the PP last year. Especially the first half of the season. Teams have taken him out of the equation too easily this season and when Giroux does squeeze pass through to him, Coots is not picking corners.

    if you are counting on Couturier to pick corners we are in trouble. He's not a sniper...not his game.

    Not sure who else saw it, but On The Fly, the NHL Network recap show. Gotta check out the clip with the Pens-Kings recap. Snoop Dog was present, 1st puck drop, guest DJ, and did a little bit of play by play. The Snoop play by play calls, amazing. To the regular guy, he used one of the Snoop Dog lines in his call later on, and while it was dad-stop-trying-so-hard-to-be-cool,-you'll-never-ever-be-cool type moment, it played well, and made the viewing experience memorable.

    Press, Get there, Get that, Get that in there, Smith got good D, Take a shot (exacerbated), Somebody got to be willing to take a shot it can't be all passes somebody got to want to make that money, who want the money?, somebody got to want that moula, get that oughta there, push it to the limit, c'mon Quick get those hands up.

    That's a poor representation of some of the selected quips, but fantastic. Amazeballs.

    Also, this may have been a national game, it sounded like Pierre being butt hurt that there was a missed off-sides call, and like rugby or soccer the refs let the advantage play and the Kings ended up scoring. Whomever was moaning like a punk that the play should've been called dead at the Kings blueline. **** Pierre McGuire. Oh, he wasn't there *****ing like a Pens slobber jobber? I reiterate, **** Pierre McGuire.
