As someone somewhere point out on this site, Dallas needs more grit. West is more physical and Ryder is soft. Deal makes no sense value wise but that's good for us since we play the Stars.

4-3 Dallas, just over 6 to go.

EDIT: CBJ ties it up with under 2 to go, and they head to OT.

Look at the amount of games going to OT in the west. That is just ridicolous.

All I care about is that they tied it and forced it to a shootout, thus not a real win. SJ still blows.

Minnesota just isn't that good. Terrible in fact. They'd be close to dead last in offense if it wasn't for their unsustainable 30% PP efficency... Basically suffering from the same thing the Kings did early last year of too much defense not enough offense. Trouble is they don't have nearly decent enough two-way forwards and as skilled of a blueline as the Kings to make adjustments and fix the problem... They are stuck with a bunch of skilled offensive minded players, playing a defense focused system (and doing that mediocre at best.)

I also heard that Dallas was wondering if they could/should re-sign Ryder after this year, as his contract is up. Cole has a year left, so they got something for Ryder now.

I'm glad not to have Ryder around. He's good at lasering shots just under the crossbar which is just about the only thing that can beat Quick on any kind of regular basis.

Ryan Kesler has a fractured foot and is out 4-6 weeks looks like.

Just a quick update. After 3 straight strong games Loktionov has been put on NJD's first line

Henrique-Loktionov-Kovalchuk will most likely be our 1st line on Thursday.

I'm not sure that's the best idea in the world, but I hope he does well

It may work in the East. Out here he would get pushed straight off the puck. There, I dunno.

He seems to have 3 points in 4 games, so far so good.

Great to hear and I'm not surprised. Loktionov needs to be a top 6 center in the NHL, he just isn't better than Kopitar or Richards and both are signed long term in LA.

The only worry with Loktionov is his durability, but the East isn't as physical as the West.

Will do. Ill prob just do like weekly updates if u guys want me too

Overall ive been pretty impressed by him. You can tell he is much better when he plays with better players. Also you can tell he looks to pass first. His defense isnt great, but it isnt bad. He is actually pretty good along the boards, a shifty guy.

He needs to work on his faceoffs, and bulk up a bit. Im not expecting him to become a sniper, but he has to learn to shoot more open . One thing I noticed is that every single time Kovy is on the ice with him, he passes it too him. Which could either be very good or bad depending on the situation.

If they don't stay, Perry in Montreal and Getzlaf in St. Louis. I hope Getzlaf stays with the Ducks to prevent something like that, because Getzlaf as a Blue could be a problem. Getzlaf also would fit in with Ottawa, NJ, or Toronto.
