Austin Matthews score his second, smile? Nope....might as well look angry.
When did NA players becomes soulless clones?
Enjoying watching the Islanders get destroyed
Daaaaaaamn Nisky boards someone and a tooth goes flying!
John Tonelli? The Islanders are going to retire Tonelli's number?
Coyotes win their first with Hall. Hall with a great effort to set up the GWG.
4 cups in a row results in a lot of retireable numbers...
So, if the Caps win 3 more Cups they could retire Lars Eller?
if he scores 3 more Cup winners, f*** yeah!
If the Ovie Caps win 3 more Cups, they could retire Jaromir Jagr for all I care.
Nope, that’s crossing the line. F Jagr.
If Eller contributes the the way he did in the playoffs for the first one similarly for the next three then absolutely.
Bura just scored a nice one....glad he's succeeding so far.
Gotta get excited about something. They've won like one playoff series in the last 25 years or something like that.
I noticed that former Caps D Scot Kleinendorste was killed in an accident in the paper plant he was working at.
Two. But who's counting?
Islanders top prospect Ilya Sorokin is apparently trying to force a trade from the Islanders. He's using KHL extension as a leverage to get that done. If he signs an extension then he's set to become UFA when he turns 27.
Damn, Islanders plan on him being their next starting goalie takes a big hit from this.
I don't even get it. Greiss is UFA. Varlamov isn't signed long term and is easily moveable. Would think it would be the ideal situation for him to go to New York, backup a Russian veteran for a couple years then seize the reins himself.
Makes me think lower of his character then, if he demands to be given a starting spot.
I just don't think he wants to play there, and can't really blame him for that. He's 24 and still hasn't given any indication that he's close to moving there. He's won anything you can in the KHL and still he'd rather be there than the Islanders.
He is 24 now it is time to poop or get off the pot as my mom would say. I also read on an Isles site that the won't make a decision until March, so there is time for the Isles management to work on him.
Maybe them signing Varlamov for four years pissed him off.
It's not really that much different than a NCAA drafted player waiting out their eligibility and electing to become a free agent. Prospects are starting to wise up to the draft that they can have some leverage in where they play. Many people look for new jobs when their current job wants them to relocate to a city they don't want to be in.
I'm not surprised, he was clutch guy and had some good moments for them in the playoffs. That Game 5 OT winner against the Pens being one along with of course "Tonelli to Nystrom" assist. As much as folks hate the Isles, they had a pretty unique team dynasty. Some of my first hockey memories.
Yep, it truly is sad. Makes us reflect about these guys when they leave the NHL and continue their post hockey career. I remember a truck driver who played in the minors from Minnesota who played with Bruce Driver. When you meet those guys they have all kinds of stories to tell and great conversations that will never be forgotten. My heart goes out to his family.
Rangers prospect Lias Andersson has put in a trade request apparently. 7th overall pick in 2017.
