Tom Wilson is still on that overpriced contract, dont forget that
"Any of you that have ever felt stepped on, left out, picked on, put down, whether you think you're a nerd or not, why don't you just come down here and join us. Okay? Come on."
It's so weird seeing Nisky in the game right now wearing orange.
hows he playing?
Better than Provorov.
I can only catch a little here and there on nhl network through my phone while at work, so couldnt take a long look. But hes actually looked good from what little I've seen.
Dont remember any defensive mistakes. Actually handling and bringing the puck up himself.
Didnt see any giveaways, which we all killed him for during the Canes series last year, throwing up random no look passes up the center of the ice or along the boards.
Yeah. Massive double standard.
I actually think what Matthews did was worse as he "hurt" someone else. Kuzy only hurt himself.
Neither should be/should have been suspended.
Perhaps not. Matthews is a total jerk, though.
Poor devils collapse... 4-0 vs a team who played yesterday.... lose 5-4 SO.
Coleman goal was insane!
The end to the Devils jets game was entertaining
The Knights look good. The Sharks not so much.
Are the Sharks this bad or are the Knights this good? If it's the latter, look out western conference.
The only two games I've watched some beyond the capitals (just due to be late games) but imho I chart it up to the sharks not looking very good.
Pavelski and Karlsson are better players, but this year they’re kind of like if the Caps had gone with Shattenkirk over Oshie, in that you’ve got a guy who delivers in the playoffs consistently, that’s an obvious leader, then you’ve got an offensive defenseman where everything points to they’ve already played their best years
Btw, the last nail in the Pens coffin will be Ovi becoming #5 player of all time (which is imminent ofc). That will be very sour for them (and theyre in denial so far).
This is kind of cool:
Lol, McDavid just scored a nice goal.
Boy has Hughes had a rough introduction to the NHL. This is the bottom of the 5 on 5 CF% in the NHL.
As a comparison the Caps "worst" possession player is Hagelin at 49.05. He is the only Capital under 50%.
Carolina knocked the crap out of TB. 4-3 OT win for CAR but they outshot TB 43-13. Score effects make this look a bit better for TB but not much. It also makes last night's game look a little better from WSH's perspective, but also Carolina is a legit contender IMO.
CAR and WSH appear to be the class of the Metro unless Pittsburgh pulls one of their patented midseason coach firing -> Stanley Cup runs again.
I mean, maybe. They gave up 3 in the first and Tampa fell asleep. Carolina is definitely fast and tenacious, but they always have high shot counts because the choose quantity over quality.
Look the Canes are good, I like a lot of their players, their defense may be the best in the NHL, but win a game in regulation and I will jump on a hype train.
Sabres won ten in a row last season and three of them were in regulation. OT "wins" really skew a teams record.
I also love that the first tie breaker this year is actual wins in 60 minutes of hockey and no more of this "ROW" garbage.
Wow. Mantha scored 4 to single-handedly beat Dallas.
He is a total stud. Beast.
more comical that there are 6 Redwings on the list....
