  1. I think that’s intentional as people are typically home and it makes for a big TV night. Same way college basketball final is always on a Monday.
  2. It feels like it’s been 3 weeks since Florida went up 3-0 and looked ready to take home the cup…oh wait, it has been.
  3. Sneaky good save against Reinhardt there
  4. Nice patience by Barkov going through the middle
  5. I was on a trip to Canada several years ago and caught back to back Ottawa 67's games while there. They weren't Devils prospects yet but both Clarke and Bahl were pretty note worthy. Clarke had a Michigan goal in the game I saw at Kingston and Bahl was just impossible to miss because he was a foot taller than everyone else and seemed to play like 30 minutes. Now in a matter of days, they're both gone.
  6. Just catching up today. Has a player ever pissed away his career the way PLD is going? Spent a few years sulking in Columbus before quitting on the team and forcing his way out. Was supposedly a malcontent on a good Winnipeg team and eventually seemed to try to force his way to Montreal or LA. Finally gets to a place he wanted to play and they ditch him within a season because of how uninspired his play was. Now he's 25 and going to languish on a team headed for a rebuild. I guess it's a good move to own up to your mistake and pull the plug on the PLD thing while you can but there were all sorts of red flags around this player when Blake made the move last summer. The Kings should have never been in this position.
  7. I don't exactly consider this "Big Game Hunting" but given what's available, I'm fine with the move. If we're going to get an older goalie, I prefer the super large one over the lighting fast undersized guy in Saros who would probably cost more and could fall off a cliff if he slows down even a little bit. Maybe Akira can pick up some pointers from him in training camp since they are similar sized goalies.
  8. That was a pretty amazing save on the empty net by Tkachuk
  9. Came here to post the same. Super entertaining.
  10. I think the kids call this a Wagon
  11. Utah Blizzard isnt terrible but for some reason it just sounds like an AHL team name that would be accompanied by some lame three dimensional cartoon logo to me
  12. Emily Kaplan drives a minivan with 3 car seats strapped in, right? She’s actually quite good at her job but it feels like she comes straight to the arena from driving the kids to various soccer and baseball games.
  13. So happy for the Panthers fans in the arena. Traveling rangers fans are the absolute worst
  14. This was the most disappointing hockey season I can remember but at least now we can say it could have been worse.
  15. I know which is why it’s shocking that I feel like I never see him finish anything in this playoff or last years run. edit: I guess I should have clarified that I was talking about the playoffs. The dude left me underwhelmed last postseason run as well.
  16. I have less faith in Barkov to finish a prime scoring chance than I did in Josefson back when he would take a roster spot for an entire season.
  17. Total jinx! This is too important to be playing with fire like this (even if I agree with the statment)
  18. If they want to move on from Holtz, they can. If the Devils come into camp and he's still on the roster because "they couldn't sell him off" that's complete bullsh!t. I think everyone understands he's probably not ever going to be a player that will justify his high draft position but the dude literally just scored 16 goals with limited opportunity on an ELC that still has a season to go. Add in that its clear he was in a situation where no one in the organization had his back AND the entire franchise had a sh!t year, I'm sure plenty of teams would be willing to take a flier on him. Hell, the Bruins just paid Jesper Boqvist more than Holtz's salary next year to be in their lineup. If they are looking for actual value back for him, I imagine GMs aren't lining up to offer prime assets but that's to be expected given the public skewering by the GM. Even if Holtz is a complete bust, I'll never understand the animosity towards this player. We've had plenty of flawed recent 1st round picks like Ty Smith, Zacha, McLeod (before 23 playoffs) who didn't ever receive this type of negative public reaction from the club. It's ironic too because short of maybe Brendan Smith and Lindy Ruff, I can't name anyone else in the organization who was worse at their job in '23-'24 than Fitz.
  19. I love when teams score against the rangers because Trouba takes himself completely out of the play.
  20. May tonight be the night that I can go peacefully into the offseason with the knowledge that the Leafs and especially the Rangers will go another year without a cup.
  21. That was my understanding as well. That locker room was a mess last year. They removed Wheeler and PLD in the summer and that seemed to address the problem.
