Went to bed with the Oilers up 2-0, woke up to a shootout win? Yikes, don't like a 3rd period collapse (of course) but a win is a win, I guess. Still wish the league would do away with the loser point.

Not that anyone cares but expected goals were 4.1-2.26 in favor of the Rangers and they didn't even start Shesterkin. That is a lot of expected goals to lose by. That just suggests the caps got lucky.

2 game suspension for Landeskog after boarding Kirby Dach last night. Not sure it was that bad, just unfortunate timing because Dach had gobe down to a knee jusy prior to the hit and Landy never pulled up. Also, I know he is not a habitually dirty player at all but during that one shift he lined up a few other punishing hits like he was pissed or something.

Evander Kane to be suspended for 21 games due to a covid protocol violation - likely a fake vax card as many have said and reported on. Seems like the guy is always in the middle of a controversy for something and is more detrimental to his team than their opponents considering he has only surpassed 50 points once in 13 seasons, has never scored more than 30 goals in a season, never scored more than 27 assists, takes way too many dumb penalties, is a -67 when he is out there plus a general red light pain in the ass. Seems to me the hassle of having a 2nd line wing who is always in some controversy and doesn't produce at the rate SJ hoped is just not worth his 7mil cap him annually. He's like the dumb and nowhere as good Kane! :)

I won't even get started on this but could not agree more, why espn thinks I would rather hear two nobodies announce instead of Eddie O and Pat Foley is just beyond my comprehension. Hawks cannot buy a win so the annoying announcers surely must be at fault, certainly cannot be the fact that the D is simply not working except for the great PK.

Just out of curiosity what do you think of Duncan Keith in a small sample size thus far? I sure as heck miss the guy considering my D has hung both Flower and Lankinen out to dry all 4 games. Keith may have been getting a little older but he always tried his best, motivated the team as an A should do, provided veteran saavy baack there and lead by example both on and off the ice. I am curious how he is being received up there in Edmonton and I am guessing most players and fans would welcome a guy with his pedigree, leadership, play and helping the community - heck the guy is a HOFer by almost any metric or he'd not have been listed as one of the best 100 players ever.

He's been pretty much invisible, which is just how I like my d-men to be. Steady, solid, don't fuck up. Small sample size but he's checking the right boxes so far. We're not counting on him for any offence, of course.

I'm too far removed from Edmonton to know how the locals/media are taking to him for the most part though. I'm stuck listening to people blather on about the Leafs, and holy fuck do they ever live and die by each game - it's wild.

Mission accomplished, on both fronts.

5-0 seems a bit unlikely. Playing the Knights in Vegas tonight on the back half of a back-to-back. It's doable, but it's going to take a big effort.

Glad to hear it, he is damn reliable. He may surprise you with points though because he is capable of running up assists and with McDavid or Driasiatl on the ice he can thread a stretch pass to spring a breakaway as well as anyone - I cannot tell you how many times I saw him do it. Understand completely about not being close enough to know the local feeling - I am a Hawks fan in Connecticut! :lol

He is unreal, almost inhuman. He may well break the record for fastest guy to 1,000 points. After say his first two years I kept waiting for the league to catch up with him but he keeps getting better and better. He as for pure goal scorers he is up there with Bossy (probably the best FWD I know of as far as goals) and Ovechkin as far as guys I have watched and with his playmaking ability to threat a needle with a pass to give a team-mate a tap in (or breakaway) he is up there with Gretzky or Kane IMO. Just an amazing combination of skills.

I feel like the Rangers know I’m watching :lol.


Also to add on: Rangers have had an okay start based on record I guess. That said, I’m very concerned that Panarin and Mika have been complete ghosts so far. They are having zero positive impact for the Rangers. Without them, the Rangers are just Shesty standing on his head all game.

A John Doe, now identified as Kyle Beach, filed sexual assault claims against the Blackhawks video coach earlier this year. It happened during the '10 Playoff run. He alerted people within the organization at the time.

An independent investigation revealed that the organization didn't want negative publicity during the playoffs, so nothing was done until that summer. Basically they let the coach go w/severance package and he went on to coach college (maybe?).

Now people within the organization have resigned, following the investigations. Including GM Stan Bowman.

Now people within the organization have resigned, following the investigations. Including GM Stan Bowman.

You know, if toew kane and keith had come out and said we knew about it. We made mistakes and should have done more, i might have a tiny bit more respect for them. But to come out and either flat lie or do whatever it is toews is doing…

Sucks that my hockey team is forever tainted. How do Penn State fans still cheer for them because right now I am disgusted by the Blackhawks.

It was a little easier with Penn State because it's easy to clean house at a university. Even the roster has turned over so many times there is literally no one associated with that left. You find yourself rooting for the players over the institution, and even then it's still hard. I've slowly gravitated toward Rutgers in recent years because we no longer have locals playing at Penn State and we're sending a bunch there.

But for a pro team? It's harder to put this out of your mind and still root for the team. I wouldn't blame any Blackhawks fans who wanna step away from rooting for the team for a while or permanently.

I feel really bad for the Panthers. They are finally seeing success and hired a coach that they thought would bring them success and this is the pile of crap he brought to them that they now have to deal with.

The Hockey Guy was talking about how the Panthers may not be able to just fire him because he could file a wrongful termination claim since the situation didn't occur with the Panthers and was over 10 years ago. That might explain some of their actions in handling this so far.

This makes me so mad to hear.

The Penn State thing still makes me mad to this day. Way too many Penn State fans were perfectly okay with sweeping that under the carpet and still lobbying for JoPa statues well after the fact. It was really disgusting. I am not sure enough time has passed yet to be honest.

As a Rutgers Alum, welcome aboard!

Amazing that none of you have mentioned Donald Fehr, and his turning a blind eye to one of the players he's supposed to be protecting. Wonder wtf his excuse is?

Waiting for jeep kid to tell us how he actually feels about the Canes rather than just regurgitating their record.

Also, solid trade for Buffalo, but Vegas definitely got the most out of that deal.

With all of our injuries this year, I wonder if we are kinda punting this year just to load up and be terrifying next year?

I think that's the plan. See what you have as far as depth goes for next year. No need to hit the panic button if you're confident the future will be better with a healthy team.

Flyers + Covid could not beat the Pens.

Have you ever seen the Flyers win the Cup?

Trying to not get ahead of myself but the Oilers might actually be good this year.


Also, have you folks heard about this McDavid kid? Seems like a good hockey player.

Donít get too excited. The Rangers canít hold a 3rd period lead this year. The Canucks are not that good and did the same to us last game.

Fully expect the Rangers to get blown out tonight.

The Rangers should be embarrassed

It was 4 on 1 going into the zone and he cut through them like butter. :lol
