  1. Ugh, Rask with 4 goals allowed on 20 shots. Yes, the first STL goal was a beauty of a deflection...but to have a save percentage of .800 in Game 7 of Cup Final is brutal.

    Hughes or Kakko

    I'm not sure of this link was posted yet but I found this Hughes article to be a good read.
  3. There's a saying about best-of-7 playoffs that you "don't worry until you've lost at home". Carolina should worry.
  4. Ryan McDonough laying in the crease again and getting eliminated, like in 2012. Tough luck for this guy. And Callahan.
  5. The President's Trophy Curse
  6. yep, Columbus was up 2-0 against the Caps last year, with 2 OT wins. Game 3 is a must watch to see what develops

    Hughes or Kakko

    The only thing I remember about Parsie is that he has not been as good, in neither regular nor post-season, since he left the Devils. And I like that karma. Especially the 7.5 million cap hit ..each and every year...until his contract ends in 2025.. so far, MIN has paid over $ 70 million for 444 Games Played with 167 G - 169 A = 336 points.
  8. I like his pedigree: Hughes comes from a family of ice hockey athletes. His older brother, Quinn, was drafted 7th overall in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft by the Vancouver Canucks. His younger brother Luke plays minor hockey for Little Caesars 15U AAA[1] and will play on the U.S. National Development U17 Team during the 2019–20 season.[14] Their father, Jim Hughes, is a former hockey player and team captain for Providence College, an assistant coach for the Boston Bruins, and the director of player development for the Toronto Maple Leafs.[15][16] His mother, Ellen, played ice hockey, lacrosse, and soccer at the University of New Hampshire and, in 2012, was inducted into the University of New Hampshire Athletics Hall of Fame.[16] She also played for the United States women's national ice hockey team, and won a silver medal at the 1992 World Championship.
  9. less risk on taking that chance than on a # 1 overall
  10. We'll have years to compare Hischier v. Nolan, and now whomever we pick v. the Rags pick.
  11. My first round hopes: TBL over CBJ BOS over TOR WAS over CAR NYI over PIT NSH over DAL STL over WIN CAL over COL VEG over SJS
  12. i hope there's more fans at the rock than there is at the panthers game https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DnUgMLMX4AApROK.jpg:large
  13. Not yet, but the last 2 years have closed the gap. For his time, Lemieux was huge at 6' 4" and 220 pounds so he had a big physical advantage & reach so he was dominant among his peers . Crosby is like 5' 11" and 200 lbs in an era of large players and many more fantastic defenseman and Crosby is still a great producer. Like Niedermayer, Lemieux just appeard effortless on the ice. For me Lemieux was the greatest physical talent I've seen, yet Gretzky squeezed every drop of his talents to be the greatest.
