St. Louis......wow.  When you have players dropping the gloves and fighting, you'd generally like to see that against a proven winner, not your own teammates....in practice.   LA, St. Louis and Chicago, the three worst teams in the league.  Who woulda ever thought that could even be remotely possible.

Yep, pretty crazy when 2 of those 3 teams you named have won 5 Stanley Cups since 2010.

There's this guy, and there's everybody else. Sorry.

Yep, I'll agree - McDavid is on a WHOLE other level.  He makes Auston Matthews look like 4th liner.

From what I've heard, read and understood, it might be a lot less stressful to be a Leafs fan with an ocean in between me and the Toronto media. The chances are I'd hate the Leafs too if I lived in Canada, excluding Ontario. :)

Yes the Leafs are a force this year.  Next year..... I find it hard to sign both Matthews and Marner with Marner being the expendable one.  But thatís next year.  SJ came so close with JT (at least Iíd like to think so lol) and to see him doing well with the Leafs just digs the thorn in my side a lil deeper.  

Just glad to talk a lil puck every now and then. Iím the only guy in my office and I work with 5 women who just stare at me blank when I talk hockey or golf. So alone...... haha.

No, they'll get both signed, the expendable one of the three is definitely Willy. It'll be a tight squeeze and the defense might end up weaker with Gardiner gone but I struggle to see anyone other than Willy leaving. In my dreams the Leafs will win the Cup now and work out an Orpik arrangement with some team to get rid of Marleau's salary and sign him back at a lower rate or see him retire.

Of course, with Kapanen and Johnsson taking leaps forward, the trouble isn't limited to the big two unsigned ones. But I'm certain Dubas and the gang will figure it out.

If you want real salary cap trouble, look at Tampa Bay. :)

Victims of long term no trade contracts. LA, The Ducks and The Hawks all have this problem. Players would have to approve a trade. It is bascially a pension - thanks Stan Bowman.

Yes I agree Willy is def the most expendable one of Matthews, him and Marner.  I was just commenting between Mathews and Marner.  If I was Dubas I wouldíve either traded Willy or let him sit out the season. Total BS move on Willyís part to screw over the team and sit out til Dec 1.  Demanding 7+ million/year seriously?  Kapanen is playing good so who needs a Willy at 7 mil?  I donít get it.  

Now if I was another GM Iíd want no part of Nylander and all that BS he just pulled off. Iíd want Marner.  Dubas can dangle Marner at the deadline and maybe get Panerin or Seguin.  Or he can resign him but heís gotta take a hometown discount.  Marleauís contract is hurting them IMO.

Caps fan here...
Ovi on fire recently!

Pleasant surprise - I really thought there would be more of a let-down to start the year.
If they can get past the injury bug, should be in good shape a another potential run.

Ovi isnít on fire.  Heís full on nuclear!!!!!!!  

Always loved that guy.  So glad he finally got his name on SC.  

Question: who would you guys take if you had to start a team.  Ovi or Peter Forsberg.  

Some would question Oviís heart.  Some say he dogged a lot of games.  Peter was prob never fully healthy in his prime.  Forsberg was just awesome as well.  He played on a better team and had better skill to play with.  Tough to decide..

Ovechkin, no question. Far more durable. Best non-Oilers/non-Penguins forward of the past 40 years.

What I love about Ovi is that he has this edge that comes out and he likes to flat out drill you right into the next town over.  Forsberg could dance around you and then the next shift heíll go right thru you.   Love both of these guyís game.  

And yes I agree Ovi has stood the test of time.  As hard and heavy as heís played, heís been very durable.

It's amazing how the SC changes impressions - and esp the fact that he was the leading scorer for the SC champs.

A year ago - on any hockey board, the quotes you would have seen were - "not a leader", "no heart", "choker" etc  etc -
even though his playoff production has always been high (with the exception of 3 or 4 game 7s esp v. PIT...which obviously are key)

definitely got the monkey off last year!
as a fan since the 70s I'm definitely still basking in it! :D

Pens fan boys... Welcome to the march of the penguins 2018-2019. That is a LOT of fire power between those two teams btw. Laine's a tremendous talent and both teams have good supporting casts. Jets power play = fun. Tampa is the deepest team in the east and its not debatable. (Kucherov, Stamkos, Hedman, Miller, Palat, Johnson, Vas, McDonagh, Girardi, Callahan)  Watched Sharks - Kings.... Karlsson & Burns play together briefly for a shift or two last night. Thats a fun pairing to watch even though it was a PP.

The Isle.  Holy ***balls.  Take your best player off the team and now after 47 games they have more points than Boston, Washington, Pittsburgh and the same amount of points as Toronto and Smashville.  

I donít know their cap space, but they could pick up some players at the TD and go for a deep run in the playoffs.  Who knew?!?!?!?!?
