Calgary goals - 4

New Jersey shots - 2

The Devils have too many “look at me mommy” guys playing important minutes.  They are soft at centre, and Dougie Howser Hamilton is Charmin soft.  They are terrible.  :lol:

I would hope that most hockey fans would be above taunting an opposing player over the death of a friend.....but I suppose I have to bear in mind that this "fan" is from Texas....<_<






The Columbus Blue Jackets and Nationwide Arena security are attempting to identify the fan who apparently taunted Elvis Merzlikins on Monday, according to The Athletic's Aaron Portzline.

Merzlikins said that a Dallas Stars fan taunted him by mentioning his late former teammate Matiss Kivlenieks as the Blue Jackets came out of the tunnel for the start of Monday's game.

"There are some stupid people in this world," Merzlikins explained post-game. "That was really bad what happened in the tunnel when I was walking out. There was a fan from Dallas who provoked me about Matiss.”

During the off-season, the 24-year-old Kivlenieks tragically lost his life in a fireworks accident on July 4. He was, by all accounts, a remarkable human who had grown into being a promising goaltending prospect in the Blue Jackets system, and his death had a far-reaching impact within the organization.

Perhaps no one on the team was impacted more by the death of Kivlenieks than Merzlikins.

Merzlikins invited Kivlenieks to live with him and the two formed a strong bond. Merzlikins often compared Kivlenieks to a little brother and was going to ask him to be his daughter's godfather just before he passed. He recently explained to ESPN's Emily Kaplan that the grief from Kivlenieks' has been tough to process.

Flames off to a decent start, And let me tell ya... IF they keep it up, They are screwed bigtime this offseason. Mangiapane as 7 goals already. 25 yo RFA. Hopefully will command and get 8 year 8+m lol. 

Little johnny, UFA. Again sign to a 8x8+ , Or walk for nothing.

Rathuck, RFA. 8x10 or hold out / trade. He's a bigger greaseball than pops. You know this will be his approach.

Regardless they will either overpay for talent that will not even be worth half the contracts, Or lose said talent

At the Canadiens game!  And got caught of being a Canucks fan!  The person next to me saw I was on CDC.  I’m up high.  I’m afraid of heights and don’t want to get up.  Trying to calm myself.



How is the arena there? Looking to go next or the year after.

The arena is nice.  The Seattle Kraken provide free transit to and from the games that includes link light rail, streetcar, monorail, and bus which is nice.  I took the bus there and back.  Everyone is really excited at the games and loud.  It will take some time for me to get used to for where I am sitting and the Kraken.  I'm a Canucks and Canadiens fan, but I can adjust. I have 21 more games to go to, so I can adjust to where I am sitting (I don't like heights) and buy a shirt.  I like vintage like shirts.  And maybe have a glass of wine or two.
