Sharks are on a 5 min PP and Detroit is out scoring them 2-0
JFC that was disgusting Cale
Cale Makar just violated Kirby Dach in an uncomfortable way
Provorov missed the first game of his career (403) tonight because of covid.
There is discussion on Twitter today about how Edmonton needs to find a goalie, but my question is how do they do that? They can’t afford to take on salary long term, so you’re looking for a rental. Okay, great, but they can’t give up that first round pick to land a rental when there are no guarantees they will make the playoffs with whoever they acquire.
So you’re back to finding someone that might be better than what you have, but also maybe not. Detroit has Greiss who isn’t great this season, but maybe you trade a 4th for him and hope it works? Like what else can you do?
That's exactly what you do. Take low cost swings until SOMETHING connects and works.
Im not sure how many swings Holland has left. If they miss the playoffs this season, I wonder if they clean house yet again.
Would MAF accept that move? He didn’t want to leave Vegas, so I’m not sure he would agree to leave Chicago at this point.
Edmonton's problem is that theyre a 4-5 player team. And if 1 of their 2 god tier players have a streak of playing just merely very good, they're fucked.
I think their problem now is giving Nurse that contract. He’s not #1, let alone a top 10 D in the entire league. That has totally fucked then for the foreseeable future.
At least in the near term Hyman provides them a guy that can provide scoring depth. Nurse, woof.
Well they never should have hired holland. Guy is Tallon level bad.
I wouldn't even call them a 4-5 player team. They are a 2 player team. If both Draisaitl and McDavid aren't on, they lose and lose badly.
They have 25 Million Plus in badly spent cap space. Literally 25% of their cap is tied up in mediocre players.
Yep and so much of it is long term, plus their prospect pool is meddling. Literally there is no hope beyond McDavid and Leon going insane.
Next year they're also going to have to pay Puljujarvi who, by virtue of playing with McDavid, is going to have 50-60 points.
I think we see Edmonton sell the farm to try to gain some cap space and get a goalie this offseason. McDavid and Draisaitl are probably at about their apex right now.
They don't have any other options, and it will continue the cycle of the last 5-6 years and it will end up fucking them further.
It’s about time they consider removing Holland from the HoF
probably not. Maybe if the oilers were more of a contender he would
his salary is weirdly worded in that tweet.
Pittsburg had the liveliest boards I’ve ever seen. Are they new or something?
They invested in the boards instead of wingers for Crosby
Three more games were postponed for the Canadian teams. I believe Friedge said the 16th is basically the last date games will be postponed, so at this point all those teams are going to be at a massive disadvantage as they make up tons of games in February. It won’t be just them of course, but they will be fucked more than just about anyone else.
That Marner stat is wild. The Laf star is only crazy because of how limited his PP time has been.
I mean this is nuts
Why do so many national hockey writers like pro wrestling? They should be commenting on this game, not subjecting me to nerdy wrestling takes. Dorks
How many minutes does reaves have on the PP?
Pepper needs new shorts!
Oilers are now 3 points ahead of the Canucks with the same games played.
That's pretty insane considering where the teams were a month's worth of games ago.
price for mcdavid, next question
That’s what they have done for a while now in net, let’s do the same shit again is your idea?
you can’t be serious with this shit, at least I was just joking with the price thing.
They have no cap space to do anything else.
Mike Smith is not a swing, it’s an acceptance.
Good thing Anaheim will be good to go in three days.
Probably not skates themselves that are the issue, but worn down steel blades.
Bob Wischusen is great calling hockey
Those are easily replaced.
Nice to have Kuch back, Vladar playing out of his mind to keep the Flames only down 1
Kaprizov left the game on this hit with a shoulder injury.
