The Redwings are dominating the NHL. I like that.
Odd isnt it? They have been the top team in the west for about a decade, best in the NHL for more than half of that, yet only have 2 stanley cups in that time.

*cough* Chokers *cough*

In b4 Ottawa Senators.

The whole division system tells teams to only be slightly better than every other team in their division to make the top 3, which means lame hockey.
In a way, yes, but overall, i disagree with you.

Case-in-point: Detroit.  The rest of their division blows.  So their stats are somewhat inflated.  The problem is, they're not forced to play at the top of their game every night, which is a disadvantage come playoff time.

I think that Someone from the Atlantic division is going to make it to the Stanley Cup this year, if not win it, simply because every night is a battle for them.

The top 4 teams are only separated by 5 points!  The top 3 teams are only separated by 1 point!  These guys are playing their asses off every night, and I think that that discipline will shine through in the playoffs.


I'm a die-hard Devils fan.  I love the Devils, I watch them every night they play.  Thursday-Sunday I work until midnight, but we have a 54" HDTV at work so I throw the game on and watch it there.  And my employees have even started to enjoy hockey more because it's always on.

Which is good, because there isn't nearly enough appreciation for the best Professional sport on earth.



ps--the devils better pick up a goal scorer, and soon.  At this point, I say we should get rid of Elias; he peaked.  He may do better elsewhere.

pps--Ovechkin scored a 15-year contract with Washington?!?  Did anyone else hear that?  Holy SHIT!!

ppps--My bet for the stanley cup is Anaheim vs Pittsburg, unless the Devils pick up a better scorer.  I love that Malkin kid, damn he's good.

edit:  oopsies misspelling
...you DO realize the Red Wings are 10-10 against their division, right?  I wouldn't exactly call that "padding their stats".  Plus, the Wild are good.  The Preds, Hawks, and Blues all have talent and can beat any team in the league.  It's not like they're playing against the Kings, Lightning, Leafs, and Sabres every night.

Being an Islanders fan, I was going INSANE when Montreal scored that tying goal.

I'm sorry, but the Rangers truly, truly suck.

They need to have a fire sale at the trade deadline.  They are not going to make the playoffs.  No coincidence our GM was the most busy at the meetings in Florida recently.

Speaking of which, you know what they proposed right? 1 minute penalties in OT instead of 2 minute penalties. Also, getting rid of that ridiculous trapezoid behind the net.

What are they saying? whats the rumors? what player the media are saying you will probably get?


What happen is that good player wont play in the Blue Jackets because they wont make the playoff, These players are usually looking for teams that can win the Stanley cup.

Ovechkin is creeping up on 50 goals....If he gets just a few more, that will be a record or something, I can't remember but I heard it somewhere.

Federov, Foote, vyborny for some draft picks or a bag of pucks.

Is Federov playing well this year?  He was great when he was with the red wings, but when  he got trade he started to score less and all....

Erm.

Buyers = Good teams or teams fighting for the playoffs, trade prospects and draft picks for players most of the time in their last year in their contract.

Sellers = Sell players on last year of contract for draft picks so they can rebuild for next season.

I hear Ottawa is interested in Federov.
