Jagr continues to staple himself to the record books, tying Esposito for 5th all time in goals
I think that depends on what he wants. I still am not sure if ice time or playing on a good team is more important to him
Yes. I am always happy for Jagr when he scores. It's still a little hard getting used to that 68 in a ugly Panthers jersey. He was a good Devil who gave you a lot in Year 1 and ran out of steam this year. I wonder what he decides after the year is over.
God that trade made me very sad
I love merril and want to keep him but i dont think gelly gets it done
I'd keep Merrill and offer Gelinas, Boucher and a second for JVR
Mason had an incredible sequence just now
Hes right. No way would it make sense to trade cory. I would do merril, boucher and a second for JVR though
Have to disagree.
Im just nervous that this might be a fluke year and he comes spiraling down to earth next year, similar to varlamov
Only if we atill had Deboer
Question for dicussion - Clowe for Clarkson.
Would you guys have been for or against such a trade?
Also said it was a questionable call on Kelly and completely neglected to mention the blatant non call for goalie interference
The other side gave credit to Cory Schneider.
much rather T and a first(not even gonna try and apell his name)
Camm might bring back Sharp and a 3rd.
soon, child. soon
I only watched the last half of the third period and overtime, why the fvcktit is Fraser playing?
Also how long til Severson is back??
How can this be real life? How do you not call a stick in his mask goalie interference? I dont understand
Even though I love Zids, hes one of my favorite players, this could really be a great thibg for our future if we trade him
Zidlicky better wave. If Timonen can get a 2 and a conditional 4, Zids may even fetch a late 1. At least a 2 and a 3.
Lou needs to use a gun if necessary.
You won, happy?
Here are the top 4 goalies in the playoffs the last 4 seasons:
Tuukka Rask 34 GP 1.92 0.936
Braden Holtby 21 GP 2.04 0.931
Henrik Lundqvist 57 GP 2.03 0.930
Jonathan Quick 64 GP 2.01 0.928
2 of those 4 have been Vezina winners in the past four years, 3 of the 4 have been nominees, and after this year it will be 4 of 4 as long as Holtby doesn't have a collapse.
In last years SCF Quick did not let in a goal in the third period of any game(if my memory serves correct). Thats amazing. He also played subpar in the regular season. Now, lets look at MAF, career regular season numbers are good(on mobile so i cant look up right now). Then we look at post season, actually we dont even have to look because everyone and their mother knows he sucks in the playoffs. Its a while nother game in the playoffs man
in last years playoffs the top goalies (min. 10 GP) were Rask, Lundqvist, and Price. The year before it was Rask, Quick, and Lundqvist. The year before that it was Quick, Smith, Holtby, Lundqvist. I'd say that's pretty on par with the regular season's best goalies. (side note: in 2011-12, the goalie who led the playoffs in save pct. with no minimum games played was none other than Mr. Cory Schneider at .960 in 3 GP ).
Neb00rs, I think we had a miscomunication. I agree that Quick has very good playoff numbers. He does not however play that well in the regular season. That was my argument to your first post about goalies not being different in the post vs regualr seasons
How exactly? I said in my original post that Quick is much better in the playoffs than in the regular season. I stuck to that.
Wait...you just completely flipped the script here.
He plays marginally better in the playoffs than in the regular season, especially the last few years. No way in hell do I think Cory is a better goaltender that Quick. If he gets 1 more cup, hes in the conversation with top goalies in history including our own Marty Brodeur
45-31 2.22 GAA .923 SV% in the playoffs. Two Cups in the past three years. You were saying?
Btw, Cory is much better than Quick.
Quick is a prime example of why you are wrong in stating that "the best goalies during the season are the best in the playoffs"
The difference in goaltending from the regular season to the playoffs is just overrated. Goalies are who they are and the best goalies during the season are the best goalies in the playoffs. Sure there might be a marginal 'pressure' effect (one that certainly never affected Marty) but for the most part calling Cory, 'unproven in the playoffs' is easy and really just not well...not a fair thing to do. If Cory had a history of bombing in the playoffs then fine, call him 'unproven'. Cory pretty much hasn't played in the playoffs yet, but in his 10 career playoff games he has managed a .922 save percentage. The fact that Cory has little playoff activity to his name, does not marginalize his value in the least.
With what trades have been going on Zids would definitly bring back a second and possible first. However, I am 100% positive that he doesnt wave his NTC, so he wont get moved. That being said, if he does for some reason get traded for less I will post a piblic apology to you all for being wrong
we're not getting anything for zids! no one is giving us a first or second! (fingers crossed)
it would take a superstar forward, this years 1st round pick(lottery eligible) and an above average goalie. nobody would give that much so its really a non issue
Depends on the trade. If I offered you a three way deal that gets you Malkin, Crosby and Ovechkin would you take it?
anybody who wants to trade schneider right now would be the worst sports manager ever and would probably be mocked for the rest of his life
Honestly if you could say you wouldn't consider it under any circumstances, you'd be the worst GM ever.
AND NOW THEY GAVE SMITH A PENALTY FOR BREAKING HIS STICK! This is a fvcking joke i swear they are giving the rags this game.
Never want to here a rags fan complain about a non call ever again. that was some fvcking despicable officiating and led to a goal for the rags. absolutley ridiculous
2014-2015 Around the league thread
Okay I have a question. I'm watching top 10 defenders in NHL history and they have Leetch at 5. Thoughts on how he ranks among best defenders and even against our own great ones?
