    Rangers losing 5-0 to Arizona. Georgiev and Lundqvist have both been pulled. 2nd hasn’t ended yet.

    Really glad I attended this.

    Selfless Swedes. Just like Henrik, should’ve been selfish and asked for a trade to a contender while at the end of his prime.

    I don’t know why he wants to be a part of this either. I kind of wish he wanted to leave tbh.

    Vegas is currently ruining my room temperature take that they would fall off this season. Karlsson's and to a lesser extent Haula's insane shooting percentages fell off as expected, but unfortunately now they're just a better overall team.

    xgf% with a massive jump from 50.5 to 55.5%.

    Our power play is so frustrating recently, also crazy how Kuznetsov has only 1 even strength goal this year

    Wilson and Vrana are awesome though

    I'm thrilled with our season so far, understand what you're saying. Would be better if Caps had a team thread to voice my frustrations at times.

    Serious question

    Do any of your favorite teams hero worship and create propaganda about a shitty player as much as Detroit does with Justin Abdelkader?

    The guy played with Larkin half the year and has just about zero production. He is supposed to be a physical presence, but Larkin and Mantha have dropped the gloves to defend teammates while Abdelkader has been on the ice.

    Yet, he’s featured in commercials promoting true team and the announcers are constantly blowing him.

    It bothers me so much.

    Never seen a player get hero treatment for being complete shit more than Logan Paulsen

    They used to be for me. Fell asleep in middle/early high school every night to a Flyers game on the radio in the Legion of Doom years. The last 7-8 seasons completely ruined them for me. I don't care about anyone on the team and I hate the front office as much as any front office in town that I can remember. Wouldn't blink an eye if they sold off Giroux, Voracek, Couts,etc. Actually hope they do.

    I had to stop watching the Sabres 2-3 years ago. Were definitely my favorite team growing up. Anyone can take a few bad years, but when you suck for 5+, hard to care or watch.

    Alex Debrincat forever overlooked. Once Jack Hughes gets into the league, US is going to have some pretty dynamic centers.

    :laugh: this isn't a contest. Sabres have missed the playoffs for 7 straight years. It made it hard to watch. That's what people were talking about.

    Sorry your Florida hockey franchise is also bad. Nobody is comparing teams except you. Stop being a little cunt

    all I will say is Giroux is an all-time great Flyer and has been treated like dogshit by the fanbase because he's been surrounded by terrible teams his entire career and people think the C on his jersey should give him superpowers to make his teammates better.

    I do think trading Voracek right now would be great even if they have to retain some salary.

    Didn’t realize Giroux was treated so bad. He’s amazing but they mismanaged the roster so poorly the vast majority of his time here at this point I’d rather them turn him into future assets.

    I'd have Jake Gardiner on that team somewhere imo. Has defensive lapses sometimes but with forwards like eichs, Kane, Gaudreau, Matthews, Larkin, I want one of the best breakout passers in the league on my team.

    also it annoys me that Couturier doesn't play for the US. he would be a nice bottom 6 center.

    No but they do this with every single French Canadian player that has marginal success around the nhl. Lecavalier is a god in mtl and he refused to play there because of these morons media type. Funny thing is that he would be seen as a failure if he played in mtl because there is no way he would have a cup playing for that shit franchise during these years
