Yeah, the name is just... awkward. But the logo is honestly one of the better logos in the league, and I'm a fan of the colour scheme. At least they'll look cool!

Weber starting to come back down to earth a little. He's still awesome, but the team is missing Subban right now. Big time. He was just so much more effective at getting the puck out of our zone and into the opponent's.

Radulov still continues to amaze though. He reminds me of Crosby in style, with the whole "ultimate grinder" thing I mentioned earlier in the thread. Obviously he's not on Crosby's level, but he's great for the same reasons and makes everyone around him better. :metal

It's really clear to me that he is out to prove people wrong about him. We all know the reputation that he made for himself in his previous NHL stints, and hopefully after this year he can continue to play to his current level because having guys like him is great for the sport. I like your comparison to Crosby,  I feel like the two would be a very good match for one another on a line.

Agreed. There were lots of worries about his personality, but at least thus far he's one of the most positive attitudes on the team. He's a man on a mission out there.

Radulov + Crosby would be unfair. Two of the hardest guys to knock off the puck. :lol

Not even the NHL, the Golden Knights management. Why the hell announce the fucking name if you don't even have the legal trademark to it yet?!

Then again, this might just be karmas way of telling them the name fucking SUCKS.

They said up front that there might be hurdles but were confident they would get the name through. I see no reason to believe that's not the case. Good for a chuckle, but the story is a non-story most likely.

Of course, they'll appeal and win. There are dozens of similar sports names out there. It's still funny.

That's the way to do it. Pure dominance. :metal I know Devils have terrible defense, but at least gives me some optimism that we can do so well despite missing so many players.

Gah. Very deserved loss. No excuse for such a sterile powerplay. Our only decent defenseman was god damn Emelin too. The D just looked lost tonight. 1st and 3rd lines were on fire though.

Bruins have been playing well. Not scoring much though. They have now scored 2 goals or less in 21 of their 30 games.

Pens on a 6 game win streak, averaging almost 6 goals per game on that streak = Really fun, enjoyable hockey!

Last season and now this season I can honestly say I've toned it down quite a bit while watching the Blues play. I no longer scream 'C'MON!!' when they make bone head plays or give up weak goals....I just kind of watch the game like a normal person I guess. It's actually been quite a change for me and I like it (Playoffs are a different story...I save it all for those games)

Anyway, that being said watching the Blues utterly disappear after going up 3-0 on the Predators last night and ultimately losing 5-3 made my blood boil and I may have resorted back to some old habits......I can take watching a loss but that game was infuriating.

Good game last night! Rusty with a beauty in OT to win it, that's one of those games that could have gone either way.

Watching the Bruins/ Panthers game tonight. Congrats to Jagr on passing Messier to become the  #2 All Time Leading Scorer.
At 44 he is now ONLY 1000 points behind Gretzky!

Yup, shows you how different hockey was in Wayne's prime. Totally different game back then. Unless the NHL somehow swings back that direction (and heads out of the dead-puck era we are in now) I don't see anyone ever touching Wayne's scoring number, no matter how good the player.
