The things I'd do to have James Neal and Claude Giroux both in a Rangers uniform...

I thought it was hilarious that the second Flyers goal was scored when they were chanting "Flyers suck."

Like why would you chant that during the first period of a 1-goal hockey game?

Why are you guys complaining that the Pens don't shoot the puck enough?

I don't know about you guys but I enjoy seeing two teams like the Devils and Rangers pride themselves on defense. Not this wide open crap being displayed right now.
After watching the Rangers game yesterday and the Devils-Sens game the day before, quite frankly I think I had my fill of defensive hockey.

Just think about where our brands got us last year and look what happened to them. This is definitely fun to watch but I never want to see my defense that loose.

It's not weird at all. I've grown to hate the Pens more.

Not me, too much play in the middle is exactly why I stopped watching soccer.

Too much credit is given to the defensive play. Both teams had above average offenses and Brodeur/Lundqvist also were factors.

I don't want to see this brand of hockey. I prefer something similar to what Detroit played for 20 years. Puck control on offense, solid defense. I know not every team is laden with HOFers like the Wings over the years. Then I'd prefer something like what we're seeing from Chicago. The Rangers and Devils have exciting players. They don't play exciting hockey. However, it's a lot easier to play the Rangers, Devils, Blues, Predators, and Coyotes style than it is to form a team that can play exciting on offense and be solid on defense. So just by playing the odds you'll see a lot more teams make the conference finals, finals, and win the whole shebang, playing our style. It's not because it's more effective, it's because more teams will play it.

I'd love to know if Slats was in the running for Neal. I really wanted him as I figured we were the front-runner for BR and if we could keep them playing together we'd be all set.

We were. I remember the asking price started with Staal and that was a huge turnoff to Slats.

Thanks for the info. Love Neal but not really sure I'd want to give up Staal + for him

I didn't realize hockey was allowed to be played in front or the net and you could trade chances and skate fast and if you happen to turn the puck over before the goal line you were allowed to play another shift.
I'm a NYR fan I never knew hockey was more than perimeter play and cycling

So does this mean that the Stars equated Goligoski to Staal?

Boy do they have some geniuses there.

Stop. We do play in front of the net.

Just, only when its our own goalie and they are shooting it at us.

Seriously, we do better job of screening Hank than we do of the other goalie. No joke.

That's why I was so shocked when the trade went down. The fact that the Pens also got Niskanen blows my mind.

Nice, learned something new and expanded your horizons. Would have to chalk today up as good day then, hey?

Pierre mentioned that Adams went to Harvard.

2 PP goals in one game!

Surely this is illegal, right?
