Well, the Penguins did it right last year. They basically got Kovalev for free since he was clearly done with the NHL, and made a good hockey trade getting James Neal. But they simply accepted that it wasn't their year.

One has got to think that his Psychology is also a major factor in this. Everyone in the medical world knows that how a person is feeling (ie, sad, angry etc) can have a huge impact on their health. Now Im not saying this is the reason why he is getting hurt, but I bet he isnt trying his hardest to make himself feel better to get back out there. This is obviously all on the assumption that he doesnt like CLB.

You're definitely more likely to work through injury for something you care about, or something that matters.

At this point Columbus' season is a loss. Risking further injury is no real benefit to the team.

Jeff Carter Injury: Blue Jackets Forward Separates Shoulder Vs. Ducks

lovin the trade more and more...at some point he has to be labeled extremely injury prone...sucks for him but glad we have a gem in Couturier, a fairly productive player in Jake and a potential NHL'r in Cousins...

LONDON, Ontario -- A fan who threw a banana at a black player during an NHL exhibition game has been fined $200.

Christopher Moorhouse lobbed a banana at Philadelphia Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds as he was approaching Detroit Red Wings goalie Jordan Pearce during a shootout in the Sept. 22 game in London, Ontario.

The 26-year-old Moorhouse pleaded guilty Monday but did not appear in court. Moorhouse was charged with a provincial trespassing and given 90 days to pay the fine. Police said there wasn't enough evidence to charge Moorhouse with a hate crime.

Moorhouse's lawyer, Faisal Joseph, has said his client didn't know hurling bananas at black athletes could be seen as hateful.

Should have kept Handzus as well.



Shoulder.

You know what's really funny is that Columbus might be the most likely team looking for Bobrovsky in the off-season. Too bad their 1st round pick will be too high in the draft.
the Penner deal was terrible. Not many people around here were happy they traded Tuebert even if Penner would have produced. Teubert is a guy I would love to have in our system.
The Kings may get a 4th or 5th rounder for Penner now.
Handzus was expendable when Doughty started dmenading big money and they traded for Mike Richards.
The Kings may be able to deal Bernier now if they can get the right deal. Zatkoff is playing very well in Manchester. He could be a good backup for Quick

Lombardi had to make a big deal though, and Penner was one of the bigger names that moved. The Oilers also wouldn't cough up Hemsky unless the Kings gave them Schenn, and that wasn't happening. Teubert is a good prospect, but Kings fans are more sour because they traded back 1 spot to let the Sabres take Tyler Myers. Penner was the alternative to the Kovalchuk the Cap Killer, but I say that's more on the player than the team. I think someone said he hurt himself eating pancackes or some crap.

Also, Simon Gagne is a 3rd line player at this point, which is fine, but it's taken games that count to figure that out.

hindsight being what it is its easy to look back and say it was a bad deal. the Kings were looking for some size and I am sure the Oilers wanted a young defenseman back for Penner and they certianly werent going to deal Voynov who was Hickey's defense partner in Manchester. Maybe the Kings had concerns about Tuebert's early injury woes. I dont know. or maybe they didnt want to deal the #4 overall pick because they didnt want to deal with the scrutiny they dealt a guy many thought was a reach at 4.

Marchand gets 5 game

Quote:
Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand has been suspended for five games and will
forfeit $152,439.02 for clipping Vancouver Canucks defenseman Sami Salo during NHL Game #598 in Boston on Saturday, Jan. 7, the National Hockey League’s Department of Player Safety announced today.

Marchand, who received a two-game suspension in March 2011, is classified as a repeat offender under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement. Accordingly, he forfeits his salary based on the number of games in the season (82), rather than the number of days (185). The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.

So G's following 10 people at the moment, mostly teammates. Then I see one of them is some random blonde, I click on her twitter, and she had tweeted that if Giroux followed her she'd give free blowjobs to everyone. Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, Claude is the man.

Maybe you should look at the picks for three stars then. Kopitar and Quick have both been more prominent there, and the stats also favour them. I don't really watch LA games, and I assume you don't either on a regular basis, but from the highlights Kopitar is all over the place and always dangerous, whereas Richards is nowhere near dominant. He's an excellent player, but not the top guy.
Understand that by not watching the Kings (as you stated) you wouldn't be aware of the fact Mike Richards has been the most consistant forward on the team all year. I live in Philly but follow the Kings via NHL Center Ice and have watched all the games this year.
Kopi is the most talented player on the team, but Richards is more valuable because he plays better in more game situations, he does all the little things well. Something as simple as backchecking, stripping the puck in the defensive zone and reading the lanes and traffic patterns and getting stick on the puck to disrupt the attack. Every one of the Kings D men has spoken highly of the work he does and how smart he is back there, Scuderi esp. has spoken on how Richards rarely ever makea a mistake defending the zone and how much that helps them. He's never been as good defensively as he's been this year . Close to 70 minutes in Penalty killing time and 1 goal allowed ,for example (good enough for hte NHl to rank in him the top 3%)
And as of the stat NHL released at the quarter mark Dec 1 or so, he was tied for 7th allowing only 7 even strength goals.

He has 11 goals in his last 19 games, Kopi has 2 in the last 26.

When Richards got hurt Dec 1, he'd scored 9 in his last 10 and 7 were game tying or Game winning. When he got hurt, the team lost 5 in a row and fell apart. They are not the same without him and it showed. None of the other top 6 forwards stepped up in his absense.

He's had 6 left wingers and 3 right wingers , most of whom are not top 6 guys. No stablibility there yet.

For all over game, defending his teammates when they get run at (which he's done all year and is much appreciated by his teammates for this), stellar defense work, grit and hustle, terrific passing and playmaking , energy, IQ and scoring clutch goals...he's been the most valuable forward asset.

THe poll today on the Kings board reflects that, (who is the best forward ) he's got 75% of the vote.

I guess you could look at it another way, as a Flyer fan. Carter and Richards both played here for the same amount of time , 6 years. Carter was the more naturally skilled player, but who was more 'valuable' he or Richards? I don't think you'd find too many Flyers fans who would feel Richards was the more valuable.

Apparently there is nothing wrong with out goaltending per Frank Seravalli.


Midterm: C+

Quote:
What happens when you average a failing grade with an A? That's what you get when trying to measure $51 million man Ilya Bryzgalov with partner Sergei Bobrovsky. Yes, Bryzgalov has put together streaks of 6-0-0 and 5-0-1. The problem is that he's just 5-9-2 in the other games. And he's ranked 66th in the NHL in save percentage (.891), just slightly better in goals against-average (3.07). Bobrovsky, 23, has his warts, but he's given up just 12 goals in his last seven starts. It's hard to imagine what we'd be witnessing if Bobrovsky delivered the Flyers a 2-1 win in the Winter Classic instead of a 3-2 loss.

Mainly because we're 2nd in Goals/Game. We're 23rd in Goals Against/Game.
