Bolland on the back door makes it 1-1.

To be fair to Emery, Seabrook is at least as much to blame on that one.That's an inexcusable giveaway right in front of your own net. Even an otherwise easy save is a lot tougher when it comes off of a turnover like that.

Turnover was bad

But no NHL goalie should give up that goal

The Nash acquisition might have added one too many stars to the roster. Their roster reminds me of the late 90's early 00's Rangers when they signed or traded for every star they could get their hands on and sucked in the process.

You can't buy chemistry

Their 93-94 mercenary team would argue otherwise.

Ray Emery is terrible

Horrid 5-hole and no rebound control

Jesus, that was a snipe by Sharpie. Also I know Hawks fans don't like his contract, but good to see Johnny O doing somewhat well.

The "mercenaries" on the 94 team were all role players that complimented the established top players.

I'm talking about the teams that included : Gretzky, Bure, Fleury, Lindros, Messier 2.0., Robitaille just to name a few.

Very few Hawk fans wanted him

We wanted a longterm solution (Trade for a young guy like Bernier or Bobrovsky)

Leetch and Richter, I'll give you, were true Rangers. Definitely.

Their captain and 3 of the 4 alternates were all mercenaries who had been brought in within the past few years.

Like, 2/3 of their forwards and 1/2 of their defensemen had played in a Stanley Cup final before.

I agree, But none of the guys they acquired that year were star players. (Tikkanen, Larmer, Mattaeu, Anderson, Noonan, Kypreos, McTavish) All role players

Whenever they've tried to create these All-Star teams, Historically they've stunk.

In fact, They actually traded away 3 star players in 94 (Gartner, Amonte and Weight) for role players in return.

Good luck winning the cup without ol' Stephane.

Growing up with all of my friends being Rags fans, Jeff Beukeboom was a crowd favorite. Still a mercenary.

Some people don't agree with me, but the reason goalies post absurd save percentages these days are because they all wear the huge equipment. Back in the day an 875 save percentage was acceptable. The nets have stayed the same size, and the equipment has gotten bigger. I've come to terms with the fact that Lundqvist is a good goalie, and the best in the league, but they all wear huge equipment. Jonathan Quick's is just as ridiculous, Mike Smith looks like a stuffed mushroom too, and Luongo, and pretty much everybody nowadays. Even Marty upgraded his, but his upper body stuff is still pretty light. His leg pads have risen in height some, but still aren't too wide.

I don't believe the goalies are better today than they were (Some of them legit are, but not all of them) it's the equipment. They take up more net. Look at Patrick Roy. He wore some of the biggest equipment in the league his last few years, and posted 920, 930 save percentages. Years earlier he was posting 910, 907, etc.

Were a lot of Hawks playing elsewhere during the lockout?

They're one of the few teams that look real good and ready to play.

I think Mike Smith might be a flash in the pan. A decent goalie, but not what he was last year.

Nice shootout win for the Oilers. Hemsky beats Luu with a sick move.
