    You mean this Gino?

    The Bruins are not built the way they once were. They are getting older and slow and less physical. Meanwhile, we have gotten younger and faster. We will just skate around the pylons and put the puck in the net!
  8. I would have rather seen Gaunce than Leipsic. Leipsic and Goldobin with Petey just seems a bit weak. Goldobin and Erickson perhaps? Or even Archibald. I really hope Leipsic doesn't throw away the puck all night. And if he does, I hope the coach notices and switches that line up.
  9. Hawks fire Quennville

    Wow, didn't see this one coming. I have no idea why they would fire him. Is 3 cups and counting not enough? He wont be out of a job long. And his replacement will likely be a downgrade.
  10. Elias Pettersson | #40 | C/RW

    Personally, I like "Elias carefully put the puck in the cardboard so that it bounced out to Boeser - and he could only put it in the box."

    Speaking of EP40 and media back in Sweden, this piece sure made me chuckle. Elvis - is in the building! Here's the Google Chrome translation: https://www.aftonbladet.se/sportbladet/hockey/a/e1gp5y Elias Pettersson's new show tonight: "Lord God" Fought for five points in Vancouvers victory NEW YORK. Elvis held a new show in Vancouver tonight. Yes, Elias Pettersson is called the number so - and he contributed two goals and three assisted when Canucks won a wild match against Colorado with 7-6. Thus he is in fifteen points in nine matches and has completed the best Swedish season start in the NHL story. "It's amazing to see him," said team mate Loui Eriksson to Sportbladet. It is the teammates who, with the help of local media, gave the Swedish rookie sensation Elias Pettersson the nickname Elvis - and talk that he lived up to it during the night's home game against Gabriel Landeskog and the other Avalanche stars. He made up with just the spectacular kind of show that the old rock 'n' roll-king had loved. Two brilliant assistants First, he won two brilliant assistants to the new radar partner Brock Boeser - and the other was a masterpiece a la Henrik Sedin. Elias carefully put the puck in the cardboard so that it bounced out to Boeser - and he could only put it in the box. "I saw that Brock had higher speed than the back and thought that the variant might work," he told the local media afterwards. "I tried something similar to one of the first matches, but then it became icing. So it does not always work, but now it was fine. Then he scored two goals himself too. At the end of the second period, he pushed in 4-4 in general move in front of the Avalanche keeper Philipp Grubauer - and when 36 seconds left of regular matchtid, he dumped the newest NHL career until now. The home team was under 5-6 and had picked Jakob Markström out of the box. Then the 19-year-old mediocre showed up in the castle, got a fitting and damned the receipt. Played until the decision - Hello, I do not think he himself understands how good he is, cheered the local TV commentators after the triumph. But that was not enough. Before Elvis left the building - sorry ... he played until Derrick Pouliot's decisive overtime as well. Conclusion: Two goals, three assist - five points. And in total he has scored fifteen points on nine matches. It is Swedish rookie record. Mats Sundin, Peter Forsberg, Daniel Alfredsson, Brothers Sedin, Håkan Loob, Patrik Sundström ... They were not near fifteen points after their first matches in the world's best league. "And then it's still so much more difficult nowadays," said team mate Loui Eriksson on the phone from Vancouver. "It's amazing to see him. The match tonight was absolutely amazing. He was in everything we did forward. And just set important goals. That he can already play like this when he's so young ... yes, that's really impressive. Loui did a goal himself too - the first for the season. - Yes, now I'm glowing ... hey hey, well, of course it was nice. I've had a lot of situations, but nothing goes easy for me right now, he continues. "Although we always find ways to win, Trotrs says we have so much damage, and it is still the most important thing. Gabriel Landeskog had an assistant for Colorado
  12. Congrats to Lu - moving up in all time wins - Luuuu

    Looks like he's back, and picked up W 472 on Friday! If he stays healthy, he should pass Belfour this year.
