  1. I mean it is just one game so you gotta give him the benefit of the doubt. He's not as bad as he showed last night. That being said I never thought Elliot was that great of a goaltender. Playing with the Blues really inflated his numbers. And even with that team he couldn't get them to the Cup Finals let alone win them a Cup. Yeah I know it's a team game, but the goalie is arguably the most important position in the game. A goalie can win or lose you a game (see Dallas Stars). He's not a goalie who will lead you to a Cup or anything, he's just average. Now if the Flames had gone out and gotten Bishop then f*** me that would have been nuts. I also feel the same way about Anderson in Toronto. Except I'm not convinced that he's even an average goalie.
  2. Is the Youngstars game going to be on TV tonight?

      @chon derry It starts at 7:30, I believe. Just keep an eye on I'm sure they'll post a link to the Youtube stream on their main page.

      Ya in one of the segments they did on the preview for the tournament on the main page, Joey Kenward says at the end they are streaming it on (so it will link to their Youtube channel).

      Okay cool. Thanks guys.

  3. I think Burr. Can't go wrong with several guys tho. We have quite a few character guys on this team.
  4. Seems like I'm in the minority but I f****** couldn't stand the guy. I'm thrilled he's gone. He annoyed the ever loving crap out of me.
  5. Love that Ferraro and Duthie called him out on his bullsh!t.
  6. McDavid is obviously the next Captain of the Oilers. If he's not ready for it this year, then they'll simply do what Pittsburgh did with Crosby and not have a Captain until McDavid is ready to take the C.
  7. His speed and finish is insane, but what also impressed me a lot was his hockey IQ. Some of those passes he made were next level, and he seems to score a lot of goals by getting to the open areas.
  8. Yeah there was no way the Penguins were going to qualify him at $3.9M. Wouldn't be surprised if he signs a lesser deal and goes back to Pittsburgh, but the Penguins don't have that much cap room so I also wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't.
  9. People doubting Benning when it comes to drafting? Have you people seen our last 2 drafts?
  10. Yeah I just googled it to see if they were still dating and apparently they are: I know we shouldn't talk about players personal lives.... but meh.
  11. Crosby is dating Kathy Leutner. Congrats Penguins!!! 2nd favourite team winning the Cup is an amazing feeling!!! Can't imagine how it would feel if the Canucks won the Cup. Oh and as someone who is a fan of both the Penguins and Canucks, Sutter is a better player than Bonino.
  12. Big problem with advanced stats is how inaccurate the stats actually are. Mark Stone and takeaways is the perfect example. While takeways aren't an advanced stat, this example shows just how flawed the process of collecting stats is in the NHL. I remember watching a Penguins game a while ago and Crosby had a breakaway and got stoned by the goalie. Afterwards the stats said Crosby didn't have a shot on goal in the game. Even though he had a god damn breakaway where the goalie made a great save on him. Yeah advanced stats help, but my god the core stats that advanced stats are based on, are collected via a deeply flawed process.
  13. He wasn't an overager in his last year of junior. He could have played junior this year (or last year whatever) as an overager. And yeah people should absolutely not be giving up on this guy. He's still really young and has had a couple pretty bad injuries which have interfered with his ability to get a good summer of training, so every year he starts behind the other guys. Big summer for him this year. I fully expect major improvement in his game next year.
  14. I kinda agree. That being said I don't think it's going to happen. We're most likely going to be taking a forward. Out of the forwards I really really really want Dubois, but my guess is he gets drafted at number 4 by the team that Edmonton trades the pick to. Which would leave us with Tkachuk which I'm okay with.
