Michaletti is very good compared to other color guys. Sam and Joe are two of the better announcers of the league. Just listen to ROOT sports in Pittsburgh and you will never complain again.

One of my favorite calls from the Penguins crew from the Rangers-Pens game last year:

Steigerwald: "It looks like Malkin got away with a hook on Gaborik there..."
Errey: "Well, why shouldn't he?"

Twitter got Kerdiles in trouble. He got suspended from NCAA hockey for one year.

Quote:
Sources told Bucky's 5th Quarter Sunday that the situation started because a photo on twitter surfaced of Kerdiles out to dinner at the NHL Draft with representatives from Pulver Sports.

As we said in our initial report, it's certainly not an NCAA violation to be at the dinner, but the student-athlete would be required to pay for his own meal.

It's also not against the rules for a student-athlete to associate with an advisor, as long as the player doesn't receive any special benefits. The student-athlete is also required to compensate the advisor for any services provided.

Even if Kerdiles did get a free meal, a one-year suspension is like sending someone to the gas chamber for jaywalking. There has to be more to do with this than just a picture of a kid out to dinner.

When Bucky's 5th Quarter started to do some digging, it took us less than 10 minutes to find another NCAA violation. Posted directly from the twitter account of agent Ian Pulver, there is a picture of Kerdiles, Yakupov, and Galchenyuk at the NHL combine in Toronto.

In the picture (posted above), you can see the three players holding up and promoting supplements from BioSteel Sports.
http://www.buckys5thquarter.com/2012...ic-kerdiles-by

Kerdiles can't be associated with BioSteel. He will be going to the WHL. Unless his parents want to pay for his schooling for a year. Pulver knows better. He was a NHLPA attorney before becoming a player agent.

It will be fun to see. It'll be interesting to actually be able to root for Ovechkin to do well.

And also... two of our very favorite, most consistent Rangers since the lockout play for Lev. Erik Christensen and Marcel Hossa.

Jon Merrill suffered a concussion last night in an exhibition game between Michigan and the University of Windsor.

Quote:
FWIW, it looked like a head thing for Merrill as he was pretty woozy trying to get off the ice.

Hearing the injury Michigan defenseman Jon Merrill suffered last night is significant. Team won't confirm.

Lamoriello said Merrill sustained "a little fracture", will have to wear a neck brace and is expected to miss 6 weeks.

Neck injury. When Lou says 6 weeks,its longer than 6 weeks. Is there such a thing as "a little fracture"?

Quote:
Red Berenson said Merrill has a cracked vertebrae and will be out awhile. But it could have been worse and Merrill will be back this year.

Not sure where else to put this...I know a lot of us on here were pretty high on Mackenzie MacEachern last draft.

Check out this ridiculous goal:

I can just hear Burke negotiating that "original signing team gets retirement contract cap hit" CBA point now.

Well you wasted a bad joke. Because as weak of a team I think the Leafs are, with one above average goaltender they are easily a playoff team imo.

can you waste a bad joke? while agree that Lou probably gets the Leafs into the playoffs, who's dropping out for them? Will the Sens drop off enough for the Leafs to leapfrog them, and what about Buffalo and Carolina, both of whom would have to be in the mix for the top 8?

The leafs would be in the hunt for the playoffs, but IMO they join a group of teams( including the rangers) who would be fighting for spots in the lower half of the playoff bracket

Who are they giving up to Vancouver...a team in a win-now mindset?

Morgan Rielly (the best thing since sliced bread) isn't going west. It will be roster players.

Of course we will (if they ever sort their crap out). It's personal opinion (obviously), but I think the Rangers will drop slightly, while the Pens and Flyers get slightly better, meaning we finish bottom half,

That's all nice and rosie that you share your opinion of what you think would happen, but it'd be nice if you gave reason and logic behind it. Because from what I've seen neither the Flyers or Penguins improved this past offseason. Both teams missed out on multiple free agents. The Rangers improved significantly but yet they are going to drop? I scoff at your opinion.

The Leafs have better players in front of their netminder than Buffalo, Carolina, and I think even Ottawa. And I'm considering talent, experience, and overall depth. But they have absolutely not had the goaltending. Luongo solves that problem.

Extremely debatable.

Carolina is probably the most improved team and Buffalo severely underachieved last season.

Luongo isnt playing in a doormat division anymore either if he goes to Toronto.
