  1. Well, the players aren't getting any of the expansion fee either and yet they're still involved in the draft. It's completely unfair that Vegas is being exempt. Complete BS!
  2. Add another win AND shutout.
  3. Marchand injures Duclair

    Just another example of how dirty Marchand is. And another example of how the NHL keeps letting him get away with it. If that had been Burrows who leaped up to hit a player in the head (which appeared to leave blood on the ice) and incidentally caused a knee injury he would have been suspended for the rest of the season. They would have said he had plenty of time to just avoid the contact all together and instead chose the predatory option of leaping into the guy's head. Marchand, like some other favored players on favored teams, gets to keep playing by a different set of rules and it's not only unfair, it's dangerous.
  4. [Fine] Marchand fined for embellishment

    Oh he nose. He nose a lot.
  5. [Fine] Marchand fined for embellishment

    The most interesting part: " In total, 29-year-old has now surrendered $874,522.51 in salary for on-ice offences since 2011." Wonder what it would be if he actually got every suspension he clearly deserves?
  6. Add another win with his 75th shutout.
  7. I think Luo would love to play out his contract. And it sounds like he's doing everything he can to make it happen. At 38, Luongo Better Than Ever for Playoff-Hopeful Panthers Source: https://www.nhl.com/panthers/news/at-38-luongo-better-than-ever-for-playoff-hopeful-panthers/c-296645562
  8. [PGT] New York Islanders vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Well I'm glad to hear that Boeser's injury doesn't sound career ending but I'm also glad that they are shutting him down for the season. Better to be safe. Hope you're feeling better soon, Bess!

    Really hope Bess is going to be okay. Looked nasty.
  10. 10 games is extreme given what many repeat offenders have gotten for causing injuries. Burr's reputation alone accounts for half of that. And yet players like Marchand never seem to get the reputation they deserve.
  11. Lu tweet thread

    Or making a comment on the fact that they traded him away so quickly before he found his groove in the NHL. But we agree that he absolutely will deserve to be in the HHoF.
  12. I believe his reasoning as it didn't look particularly violent. Burr isn't a dirty player, but people think he is and that's all that matters. Clearly he's getting 6 games, but it shouldn't be more than 2 and only that for the optics.
  13. [Report] Marc Savard officially announces retirement

    My feelings exactly. The NHL & PA clearly need to do something for the guys who suffer serious injuries that make it hard or impossible for them to work after leaving the NHL and not just leave it up to chance so that only the guys (usually the highest paid as they have the longest contracts) who still have some time on their contract get paid while everyone else (often the lowest paid guys with the shortest contracts) don't get anything. Once it's clear a guy can't return to the NHL his contract should be voided so that teams can't benefit from their insurance company's payments and he should be compensated something akin to workers' comp for the duration of his injury. But, of course, they won't. They'll just wait until a team not on their favorites list tries to get away with this crap and then freak out about how "unfair" it is.

  15. [GDT] Around the NHL | January (14-20) 2018

    I watched the entire game (two screening it while the Canucks were on) and never saw another replay. Also, you'd think if there was a better shot they would have had that as the goal video on the NHL website. Interesting, in an interview after that period McKenzie said they were unhappy with a few calls (icing and faceoff) even before that "goal" that they thought were blatantly wrong and all called against Florida. The others you could understand better, but the linesman saying he clearly saw the puck across the line through all of those people when the ref standing right there couldn't see it? Florida challenged for goalie interference but it was denied. (I guess using your stick to push a player other than the goalie into the net while the puck is completely hidden beneath them is an acceptable way to score now.)
