  1. NHL Playoffs: Stanley's Suitors

    Yeah I had a vested interest because I really badly wanna see an Alberta playoff series. Was a little tyke the last time it happened. If the Kings held their lead against the ducks on the last reg season game, we'd have seen the BoA in the first round this year. Alas, there's always next year.
  2. NHL Playoffs: Stanley's Suitors

    To be fair, the young guns were firing, but they were let down by their veteran goalie. Elliot was either average or terrible in this series. From what I saw the Flames actually carried the play for most of the series (which, in the end doesn't matter but there's a positive takeaway)
  3. NHL Playoffs: Stanley's Suitors

    Whew haven't been here in a while, lol. Glad to see NHL talk is still going here. Preds look terrifying. Good to great in all aspects of the game. I didn't watch them much in the regular season, but can't help wonder how on earth they finished with the WC2 spot. Reminds me of 2012 when a loaded Kings team finished 8th and steamrolled everyone in the playoffs. And Oilers are fighting well in this one (good response after getting bombed in g4). But they just seem to lack the playoff intensity that the Sharks have in droves. Also, props to the jackets for having a great season. Weresnki is a phenomenal talent and a warrior. I read somewhere that in every game in their playoff history, they've allowed AT LEAST 3 goals. Guess that's what you get when you play the prime Red Wings and Penguins.

    In an absolutely hilarious sequence of events, Claude Julien is now coach of the Habs. He replaced Therrien as coach for the 2nd time. The circle is complete, lol. Also, this gives the best rivalry in the league some much needed spice.
  5. NHL 2016 - The Kids Are Alright

    Hah thanks. It's odd, going into each game I know they'll at least compete for the win. Haven't had that feeling in a long time. Although I still wish Hall were here (Larsson is a steady, consistent dman though).
  6. NHL 2016 - The Kids Are Alright

    Jeez it's been ages since I've been to this thread lol. Despite the result, it was a phenomenal game. One of the best I've ever seen. I say despite the result, because (aside from me being Canadian), it was kind of a bummer seeing such a titanic battle decided in a shootout rather than continuing the OT, but that's the nature of IIHF I guess.

    Great to see Hallsy killing it in NJ - 3 more points today. I really miss the guy. Larsson's been good, but I still maintain Hall was way too much to give up. In other news, Crosby made his return today. And of course, I forgot to start him on both my fantasy teams. Just fabulous.

    That's a crazy good deal for Palmier, 30 goal guy who's only getting better. Evidently Cheveldayoff went to the same school of GM wizardry as Shero. Today he signed Scheifele to an 8 yr deal at $6.1m/yr. Ridiculous bargain.
  11. NHL 2016 - The Kids Are Alright

    He's a good roommate and a hell of a cook, apparently. Hockey wise, just a guy who throws down. Yep, a good friend of Hall's.
  12. NBA Offseason: The Draft, Free Agency and Trade Rumors Oh My!

    No it was because they owned the team. They nixed the trade, and cited 'basketball reasons'. This is a UFA signing anyways, and the league doesn't own either team. That was a complete bs move at the time anyway.

    A fellow oiler fan! Never thought I'd see the day. Well I remember fans even jeering Pronger early in the season when he came here (edmonton) lol. I see your points, and they are valid. It's definitely a gamble. I'm just not a fan of reading your 2nd best player, who's absolutely a sure thing, for a question mark. Ill happily eat my words if it turns out great, but I'm not optimistic. Biggest thing for this team - health. We may improve this year, but if we're healthy, that'll be a bigger reason for success than the recent moves. A full season of Mcdavid and Klefbom will do wonders for our record.
  14. NHL 2016 - The Kids Are Alright

    Worst is hearing these radio guys defend these dealings - 'oilers lose the hall trade, but might end up being better'. That and the classic 'you have to overpay free agents to land them'. You just traded one of the league's best contracts and made a short sighted signing. I hope we improve, but this week didn't help our chances to do so.
  15. NHL 2016 - The Kids Are Alright

    Seriously. Yzerman is a god damn wizard. That contract for Hedman is unbelievably good at 7.8m/8 years. And he keeps Stamkos at 8.5m per year. This is how you build a long term cup contender.
