1 player (Iginla) doesn't necessarily make that change, but due to the way the team is structured, and because they don't have a viable replacement, it does hurt them badly. Krejci and Lucic aren't go more »

Did he not also draft Hamill and Colbourne? I know Colbourne wasn't exactly a high pick (15th, I think), but Hamill was a huge bust. Especially when looking at Logan Couture. The bottom line is, in or more »

They were headed in the right direction, but now they take another step back. With an average QB, this team was probably 10-6 or 11-5.
Poor Buffalo fans....

"2. Rask is a Vezina Trophy winner, he's the best goalie maybe ever over the first 5 years of his career (I agree with that by the way) and even though he's been pretty ordinary and sometimes just not more »

Let's all take a look right now at how the past 4 years have shaken out: 2011 - Consistent year. Their best stretch of hockey was a 6-0 road trip, but they didn't have any month where they absolutely more »

The Kessel trade could have turned out to be disastrous had they not gotten such good draft picks. Imagine if the Bruins had ended up having to take guys like Neiderreiter or Murphy? Yikes! The Seguin more »

Picking at the bottom of each round for 5 years and then having your top lines all set with guys approaching their primes isn't a recipe for drafting success by any metric. Thankfully, the Bruins also more »

I love this thread. Get me some mo' o' dat! I've hated Bishop since his Umaine days (went to UMaine from '06-'09) and absolutely despised him, probably because of the uneducated fan base constantly to more »

Should be a judgement call. If the player tries to shoot the puck off the glass and it goes over, then yes, it's a penalty all day. If it's swatted, takes a crazy course because the puck was on edge, more »

His good play stopped in 2011? I believe he had something along the lines of 40+ points in 55 games or something like that in 2011-2012. 40 points alone is very good for a 3rd liner, but he didn't eve more »

No, he doesn't have to be the next Gretzky. In the NHL draft, after the first 10 picks, I'm happy with a decent 3rd liner in the first round. He shows nothing that would make me think that he'll ever more »
Posted 12/28/2013 08:03:29 EST
Fair enough. But if he hadn't just bear hugged him ensuring he couldn't get hit with anything but kidney shots, he would have been killed. Caron has 26 points in 108 NHL games, and hasn't exactly torn more »

Kel, power play minutes? Why? Because he's a bust of a first round pick? Get him power play minutes in Providence if need be. All he's good for is keeping the legitimate players fresh and trying to more »

Dez, the first exchange was funny. The second one I'll respect him for, even though he really just tangled up with him and didn't dare let go. Did anybody see Fraser get his face hit pretty good with more »
Posted 12/28/2013 07:38:53 EST
Wow....one of the best individual efforts I've seen all year. 4th liner my a**.
Posted 12/28/2013 07:37:19 EST
Anybody else love that exchange between Caron and Kassian? Caron looking like he's trying to play an agitator role, and Kassian just tells him to scram.
Gotta cut our losses with the bust.

5 men below the faceoff dot. Try again.
Posted 12/28/2013 07:29:15 EST
Lots of chasing led to that one.....
Posted 12/28/2013 07:27:58 EST
Smith Soderberg Fraser Spooner Caron Krug Bartkowski Warsofksy Trotman....
9 names. Half the roster for tonight was in the AHL this time last year (or in the Swedish league, in Soderberg's case).

Sweethands my a**....bury that.

I hope with the young guns on D, this turns into a pond hockey game..just for s***s and giggles. Didn't realize they did the Canadian anthem in french in Ottawa? Or could that guy just not annunciate more »
Posted 12/28/2013 07:12:13 EST
Holy God. At least they don't have Spezza. That's the only way this is an even matchup ON PAPER. We still got Tuukka, though. We'll see how this one shakes out with Boychuk and McQuaid as a de-facto s more »

Well...the good thing is that it's happening now, and not in April.

Run pass pass run....on those pictures.
