I want to start doing predictions so bad. Can Phoenix just lose tonight so we can know the Stars are basically in it?

i notice that todd richards likes to match jack johnson against crosby, and he hasn't been that effective

crosby seems to out-skate johnson on a regular basis, but thats not a knock on johnson

also, how many times have the pens been healthy when they've played CBJ? not many i'd bet

Johnson does seem to have lost a tiny step this year. Still a steady presence, but not quite the standout he's been in the past.

I meant overall. So that's what 65 games? He must have a presence in the locker room and I agree with you. I'd give it to him too.

So a lot can still happen with seeding. I think Coyotes are done because of the tie breaker personally. So what do we all want? Since we can't do predictions yet.

Pacific is set so..
Ducks vs Stars (kinda funny they got out of the Pacific and will be playing in the playoffs)
Sharks vs Kings (think this will be awesome)

Central:
Avs vs Wild
Blues vs Hawks

Metro:
Pens vs Wings
Rangers vs Flyers

Atlantic:
Boston vs CBJ
TBL vs Monreal

Nice. I didn't see that coming either, but like we've talked about here before, it's the current en vogue thing to do in the NHL. And frankly, it's been successful. I must admit that even I balked at The Gabe getting the C at age 18 (youngest ever), but look how he's grown into the unquestioned leader of the Avs in just a couple years.

And he's not an anomaly... we've seen what Crosby and Toews have done as leaders of their team. And guys like Getzlaf, Staal, Benn, Brown, Weber, Tavares, OMGCG, and Stamkos are all really good young leaders who have grown (or are growing) into their role.

It used to be that the captaincy was something bestowed on you based on your experience. While that's still the case for some teams (Jovanovski, for example), most teams are moving towards giving it to 'em young and letting 'em grow into it. And it seems to be working in many cases (exception: Washington).

I think it would be a good series. Even though the Blues are struggling I think they could handle them a little more than the Avs and I'd want to see some longer series.

My second option for the East would be this: (based on best series not my personal wants)

Boston vs Detroit
TBL vs Mont

Pit vs PHL
NYR vs CBJ

I'd be ok with that although, don't see the Flyers losing enough to make it happen. Wings winning out gets them to 95. Would need Flyers to only 3 out of a possible 6 points they have left to finish below Detroit.

It's why people like myself and Matty were so frustrated with they passed him over. The selection process for Team USA seemed so biased and Burke seemed to have personal vendettas with some of the players (i.e. Ryan and Yandle).

Reading the ESPN article seemed like he couldn't and wouldn't be swayed either way no matter what.

Yandle IS a top defenseman in the league. Getting me on my soapbox about Yandle is a bad idea, because I could do it for hours. Yandle is one of my favorite players to watch. Does he leave his partner out to dry sometimes? Yes, but he also makes things happen that 99% of the league can't/won't. (perfect example: http://i.imgur.com/iJ4MhOU.gif)

I posted this earlier this year too in his defense: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=92wbX_Mrhrk

The dude makes things happen offensively. He's like Mike Green...but a fucking lot better. He would have been perfect with Suter, especially in that Canada game.

:thumbsup:thumbsup Perfect. Yes, he will blow an assignment here and there, but sometimes you get that with a defenseman of his skill set. The thing I see from Yandle that I don't see from a lot of other offensive defensemen is a willingness to be defensively responsible and get the job done.

As often with defensemen, we only notice gaffes. But I bet 4/5 times, Yandle does his job just dandily in his own zone.

EDIT: But Chris, Burke was the GM of the Ducks when they won the Stanley Cup, so don't you DARE question his decisions!

Exactly. I love watching him play. I mean, what other defenseman in the league make plays like this:

EDIT: But Chris, Burke was the GM of the Ducks when they won the Stanley Cup, so don't you DARE question his decisions!

Yeah! Even though he didn't draft most of those players but whatever. He did it!

Yandle and OEL are one of the best pairings in the league, IMO, because of how well they complement each other. Seriously, watching them is like porn for defensemen.

And those two are honestly two of the major reasons they even get to the "average" level.

They should just trade OEL to the Avs and Yandle to the Wings. Just makes it better for everyone really.

This statement gave me a little boner. OEL is EXACTLY the kind of guy I want on the Avs.

Avs have a crap ton of cap space this offseason. Some guys need to get signed but still a lot after that too.

Wings should have some some space too. Need to bolster that blueline.

Yep, they will do what they can to re-sign Stastny, who has also stated that he will take a hometown discount to stay (we'll see how much of a discount though, when teams are throwing figures at him). I'm sure he won't be making $5 mil/year though. They also have O'Reilly and Tyson Barrie (who should get a pretty good raise after the year he's having) going into RFA.

Even so, they should have the space for someone like OEL. A guy can dream.

If you get OEL, we get O'Reilly.

:lol to you both.

But seriously Ryan O'Reilly is such an underrated player. Any team would be lucky to have him and his mad skills in takeaways and penalty avoidance.

I could post the Helm and Kozlov ones too. I get into that sometimes too. You watch one and then you watch another. I like looking back further usually.

It was unbelievable. It was back and forth all game, Hossa ends up with the 5 minute major with a minute left in the game while down a goal, play ends up in the Hawks zone, Erat throws the puck blindly to center ice, Kaner ties the game with 13.6 left while down a man and the goalie pulled.

THEN Hossa scores the game winner SECONDS after coming out of the box after the Hawks killed off the major penalty. Absolutely ridiculous.

That was one of three times I nearly ended up in the hospital celebrating Blackhawk victories.

Ryan Smyth is set to retire Saturday. Will go down as an Oilers legend.

I've only ever owned two hockey jerseys; One is an Oilers 3rd jersey (the one designed by Todd McFarlane) with Smyth's name and number on it, and the second? A half home/half away Blackhawks jersey I've since grade 5 (17 years).

Varlamov, who is currently leading the league in wins, just faced his 2,000th shot of the season, also most in the NHL.

Credit to Varlamov, or indictment on their D? Probably a bit of both. What's funny is that's exactly how Varly wants it.

Aaaaaaand we've got a new Central division leader (well, with Avs holding the tie breaker).
