Can't wait to see the highlights of the Oilers/Nucks game. Edmonton is a fun team to watch

Hemsky's game tying goal is definitely worth watching.

Of the Devils opening night lineup, only Kovalchuk, Josefson, Tedenby, Little Gionta and Matteau had played any meaningful hockey in the past month.

It showed.

Nice shootout win for the Oilers. Hemsky beats Luu with a sick move.
He plays a less conventional style, and is also more reliant than most goalies on his team's defensive structure. I think he'll stabilize as the Yotes (and all teams) get their system play in order, and he can establish a rhythm. I'm not too concerned yet, although I will be in a few weeks if he's still not playing well. I traded Bryzgalov and a few players for Smith and a few players in my dynasty fantasy league last season, at Bryz's lowest of lows.

You can't buy chemistry
In the interest of fairness, the Rangers have played two very good teams so far. And they only have three guys you can really consider 'merc' stars...Gaborik, Richards and Nash. Lundqvist is home-grown and not a merc.

That said, I don't think it's so much adding Nash that hurts them as it is losing key role players (Dubinsky/Prust/Anisimov).

I'm not even judging him on this game. I can just see him turning out higher average to average and not elite.

LOL not if he doesn't pick his head up. Anyone see Orpik lay him down like Stevens?

Great game so far. Traded momentum. Still a little bit of lingering heat from last year's playoffs.

Not exactly helping me get to bed on time, but one of the more entertaining games today.

Is it just me or is Hossa the best player in the world every year for the first two weeks of the season?

This is one of the worst goaltended games I've seen in a while. Not because of the score, but because the goals scored have been legit bad for the goaltenders to give up.

Considering this is a CHI/PHX game... it's going to go to OT, right?

Or is that just wishful thinking?

Kruger/Frolik playing well especially on PK tonight

Both are -2 though because of poor goaltending/mistakes not made by them

That is good example of why +/- is not good judge of a player

Alright I thought Emery had something wrong with him. I didn't catch the whole thing, but they were talking about it. I knew he had some kinda disorder or something though so I can't slag him too much for giving up those bad goals. Wasn't he projected to be pretty great at one time? He was pretty good for Ottawa like that year we played them in the playoffs the last time.
