Well, the Habs came back down to earth tonight in the worst way possible. 10-0. My god....

Holy crap the Canadiens got their asses handed to them. How does that even happen in today's NHL? I know Carey Price wasn't playing but his backup should still be capable of not letting in every puck that comes his way.

Wasn't all his fault. They were just that bad.

At least we got all our regression out of the way in one fell swoop. ;)

Great winner by Tarasenko last night, which the Blues needed after two ugly losses this week, but in general they aren't scoring enough; 26 goals in 12 games is pretty poor.  And their goal differential as a team is -7, which is 4th worst in the league right now.  My expectations for this team this year are not high.

Crosby with 8 goals in 6 games on his return from injury. God damn he's looked like he's re-entered his greatest years lately.

Also, ugly win by the Habs, but it's a start. I gotta say even though the team has been playing terrible lately Radulov just doesn't quit. He's really been crushing any and all concerns about him. Him and Galchenyuk are showing ridiculous chemistry and I can see them putting up quite a lot of points. I just hope the rest of team starts improving soon. :-\

I think through the latter part of last regular season, through the playoff cup run, through the world cup, Sid might have been playing the best hockey I've ever seen him play. It looks like the concussion that kept him out the first six games this year didn't slow him down.

Pens beat up on San Jose on Saturday, 5-0. They look scary good. Looking forward to seeing the Oilers come to town Tuesday. Sid vs McDavid should be fun.

Another questionable game for the Habs, but we came out with the win. First line was glorious, even with Paul Byron on it (who I do love, but interesting for the first line...). Crazy stat, every assist (8) by Radulov this season has been a primary assist. :metal

EDIT: Nevermind, Chucky stole the last one from him. :'(

Related note as to the Cubbies thread and Arlington building a new bread and circuses baseball stadium

The new arena for the Red Wings will now run approx. $125 M over budget, putting the total cost at around $750 M.  The organization can't pay their water bills on time for Joe Louis Arena, and now this. 

Corporate welfare at its finest yet again.

I like the Blue's jerseys for the Winter Classic. I think they'll look good on TV


And then Chicago at this point, with an outdoor game every year, is just starting to run out of ideas

When I saw the Blues, I was thinking 'throwback' for their 50th anniversary.  Sure enough

Elliot is having a brutal start to the season in Calgary (good for me though  :biggrin:). Whatever skills he used to have,  I'm pretty sure he forgot them back in St. Louis.

I'll be shocked if they send them to Korea. Interesting to read that they would like to maybe skip Korea and then send the players to China in 2022.

I wasn't aware they weren't going to front the insurance money. That's a huge expense.

Steven Stamkos is out 4 months  :'( :'( :'(

http://www.tampabay.com/blogs/lightning/stamkos-to-have-surgery-could-miss-four-months/2303206

He is a great player, sucks that it seems like injuries have followed him around his entire career.

How do you think this effects TB's shots at coming out of the East? Before the season started, I viewed the Pens, TB, the Caps, and the Rags as the four that could make a cup run out of the East. This certainly dampens TB's chances significantly.

I agree it dampens our chances, but slightly. I think we can still be in contention with those other teams especially if Bishop, Hedman and Johnson stay healthy and are playing well. We played well without Stamkos, Bishop, and Strahlman last postseason. However, we need those pieces if we ever want to see the ice of a Stanley Cup Final. Everyone has to step up, and seems like the Bolts organization know this

Now I'm happy he didn't sign with the Leafs. However, we don't need him all too much. Since that 7 - 0 loss versus the Kings, we've been pretty tight. Yeah, I know we lost versus the Penguins, but kinda hard beating the Champs when the Leafs are such a young team. I'm wondering how tomorrow's game against the Habs will go...

Matt Calvert takes a slapshot to the head, bleeds all over the ice, comes back and scores the game winning goal. Awesome!

First, I preferred the Desert Knights, but given the Golden Knights I will repeat what I heard elsewhere.

Las Vegas Golden Knights sounds good.
Vegas Knights sounds good.

Vegas Golden Knights sounds terrible.
