GDT: Devils vs. Coyotes, 1/4/19, 9:00pm

Recommended Posts

Probably have to call up Johnson to Vegas for Sunday and then see if anything happens via waiver until then. BNG plays Sat night, can fly him out Sunday and figure it out.

Perfect example of why I hate the current overtime format and in particular, the shootout. Stafford cannot accomplish anything during a game, but is the best shootout player on earth. 

Why do we decide hockey games with a skills competition rather than, I don’t know, playing hockey?

I mean Stafford does have 2G/16 G this year - so he can accomplish something. He ain't JQ. As for the question, this was settled in 2004, it is what it is.

Yeah the ship has sailed on the shootout being a part of hockey but Stafford should not have gotten a first star last night.  If you're gonna give it to anyone off a SO goal give it to Palm who's the more important player.  But the skills competition shouldn't factor that heavily into the three stars.

The fact that it’s settled and it’s part of the game doesn’t mean it’s not stupid, and obviously, it doesn’t mean it couldn’t be changed again.

I agree, BUT, who stood out in that game? I didn’t stay tuned for the three stars, but Coleman could have one, after that...Nico because it’s his b-day and Stafford for a beautiful winner in the shootout.

I have mixed feelings on the SO. I think it’s fun to watch, but I hate that it decides games. Wonder how Blackwood would have done.

Hell why not give Mike McKenna yet another team this week, I think he’s been technically on 3 (Sens, Nucks, Flyers)

Come in philly!

Stafford might’ve also gotten the nod from the press for it being his 800th career game. 

Not like the 3 stars really means anything at all, anyway.

Maintenance day today, had some form of treatment, status tomorrow unknown.

Binghamton signed Anthony Brodeur

 

Anyone wanna wager KK gives up a goal in the first 5 minutes and probably 2 more by the end of the first tomorrow?

It sucks but what can you do. If you're a fringe NHL guy being money in the shootouts makes you useful. Helps you stay in the league.

Of course, the other part of that is having to watch him fail to hockey for the other 65 minutes...good for him, sucks for the rest of us lol.
