  2. Sutter was right when he said that Goldy needs to find the balls to get in the dirty areas.

     

    people who are saying that Sutter has no right to say something like that are really oblivious to the fact that in this case Goldy is only starting his NHL career whereas Sutter has played 9? Seasons and has seen enough players come through the loop to know what you need to do in order to find success in the league.

      That's a good question Vinny. What we don't know is how many times 1 or more people said the same or similar things to, or if they had any effect on, Goldobin prior to Sutter's public comments. Whether Sutter is the epitome of a battling forward is irrelevant. He's at the end of his 9th year in the league so he obviously knows a thing or 2 about what it takes to STAY in this league. 

       

      The media, with absolutely nothing better to do with themselves, take the opportunity to put a negative spin on several cherry picked situations and slap out a "story".

       

      That article was peppered with so much bias I couldn't even finish it. Waste of a read.

      One thing I find, and I suppose it's human nature, is that when the team's doing well, the articles all tend to be positive and is all about how good the team's character is and great plays that are made. When the team's doing terrible, every sports writer all of a sudden becomes a President/GM/Coach as every little thing gets magnified. But imho, the players need to know this as well - I don't know, if I were a player and the team's not doing well, I'll be extra cautious about what I mention to the media as they'll be out for blood.

      I agree with you for the most part, but these guys aren't running for office so they really shouldn't give a hoot about what the media writes or thinks, and I'd wager most of them don't.

      Odd.

      He was pretty good tonight. I thought he looked like one the best forwards for Utica. 6 shots on net I believe. And he was by far the fastest skater in the game. Saw good ol Virtanen actually carrying the puck around the net blowing past defenders and creating plays. 

       

      One of his linemates was Valk and boy Valk is one heck of a player.

    4. Hairy Kneel

      Hairy Kneel

      Man Valk eh!I remember wanting him to make his mark a couple years ago. Looks like he's ekeing his way through the pro's, good to see him scoring.

      No pressure on Jake and he's back at it. Man Green knows what buttons to push or whatLol

  5. I was just offered tavares for stamkos straight up in my non keeper fantasy league, with the rules we have tavares is averaging 28 points while stammer is hovering at 27 points, accept or decline what do y'all think?

      The clock is what it is it would just be nice to watch an NHL event that starts on time when they say it is going to start.

      Three things TSN does better than Sportsnet:

       

      World Juniors.

      NHL Draft.

      Trade Deadline.

       

      Not sure how long Bob Mc is going to continue for. But he's always worth listening to. He really needs to find and groom a successor.

      Rather watch NBC draft coverage they got all the TSN guys. Once again US gets better treatment than Canada hockey fans.

      Kane slew Able, and senseless killing hasn't stopped since, nor will it stop, until we all die.  On the other hand, if we weren't such a fiercely competitive breed, would we have this means to communicate?  Necessity being the mother of invention, and our need to survive existing with constant threat, might be why we are the top of the current food chain.  Except in Chinese theme parks - the tiger rules there.B)

      They're going to be kicking our asses regularly for the next few years. Despite the past, they have a really bright, and dangerous future. McDavid, Puljujarvi? We literally have nothing to match that.

      The article says Canucks and Benning are complacent...Since Benning was hired only Markstrom, Sedins, Tanev, Burrows, Hansen, and Edler are left. Can't trade sedins with their contracts, Markstrom was a prospect, Tanev is a top 5 Defensive Dman on a great contract... so I guess not trading Hansen, Edler, Burrows makes them complacent. All with NTC from the previous regime.
