  1. Sharangovich might be a Comet soon. He just has no effect at all on games.
  2. Momentum killed. What a dumb penalty by Bratt.
  3. Would have been nice to see Bernier poke that centering pass away.
  4. Yeah, he's been OK the last few games.
  5. Well, Smith turned this game around with that check, but that turnover was rough.
  6. It's a shame the way Blackwood has played if they don't get into OT.
  7. At least on the bench the rest of this game.
  8. We are dominating at not finishing and taking penalties. It just doesn't feel like we should be winning. And we're not.
  9. Gary Bettman is like Hyman Roth. He always makes money for his partners.
  10. I think things will look better when/if the special teams get better. Sniper couldn't hurt though. Getting a point with Wedgewood in goal is definitely a bright spot tonight. It'll be nice to see Blackwood back, for sure.
  11. I'm guessing it wasn't the season he scored 48.
  12. Really good! He's got a throwback style.
  13. The players who hazed Kyle Beach .... do you think those names are coming out?
  14. I saw the goals tonight on Twitter, I can't wait to see that wicked wrister here in NJ. On a line with Hughes ... in the circles on our power play ... I hope the future is as promising as it looks.
  15. Yeah, what he said was thoughtless and lacked self-awareness. You could argue he shouldn't be captain, I still think it's too harsh a position because he doesn't seem to be negligent like Quenneville and the Blackhawks brass were.
  16. Gunslinger! Brett was a great player but probably a cut below the three players you mention. That's no insult, though. Those three QBs are all-time greats. I recall some comparisons to Brett Favre when Sam Darnold was drafted. That has not come to fruition.
  17. I'm not trashing them. The "strip the C" stuff is a gross overreaction. I'd be exalting the player who stood up for Kyle Beach, though. That would be an exceptional person.
  18. Yeah, doing the right thing takes guts. You're just not going to find many people who will take that kind of risk. There's no Cup parade for that person, if you know what I mean.
  19. That's right, that's essentially what happened. Why didn't any brave individuals break rank?
  20. What did Quenneville reportedly say? No distractions? That's a big wet blanket on doing the right thing, isn't it? Sometimes, the coach is right when he wants to tamp down something for the good of his team. Sometimes, the coach is wrong. And the coach was wrong on Kyle Beach, obviously. But when you're trying to win the franchise's first championship in 50 years, you could see how it would be easy to sweep aside what happened to a player who was not essential to winning a Cup. My point is that people are flawed. Quenneville is a great coach. Toews is a great captain. They led teams to championships. They are not empathizers, however, I think we've all seen that, LOL! There's a reason why Ken Daneyko looks like a deer in the headlights when people are talking about this. It's not in his wheelhouse. As wrong as people have acted, I would advise holding back on what you would be willing to throw away for the sake of protecting victims. Things can go too far in the other direction. That's my worry. Please, NHL, do what it takes to make sure people like Aldrich don't get hired. But when I see Jonathan Toews get thrown into the woodchipper for a selfish comment and his lack of self-awareness, it's a little overboard.
  21. It’s the same culture in which Scott Stevens laid out Slava Kozlov and mouthed “you’re next” to the Red Wings bench. It’s the same culture in which Stevens led the Devils to a championship playing with post-concussion syndrome. It is truly a culture that cuts both ways. It produces heroes, it produces cowards.
